Although the low central venous pressure (LCVP) technique is used to decrease blood loss during liver resection, its efficacy and safety during transplant procedures are still debatable. Our study aimed to assess the effects of this technique and its clinical safety for recipients undergoing liver transplantation. Eighty-six adult patients were randomly(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE Bmi-1, a putative oncogene, is a member of the polycomb group genes, and is expressed in many human tumors. Ki67 is an important nuclear antigen associated with cell proliferation. This study was to investigate the expression, significance and correlation of Bmi-1 and Ki67 in colorectal carcinoma (CRC) tissues. METHODS Protein(More)
To investigate the clinicopathologic features, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) latency pattern and genome polymorphism of EBV-associated gastric carcinoma (EBVaGC) in Guangzhou, an endemic area of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), an in situ hybridization assay of EBV-encoded small RNA-1 (EBER-1) was used to identify the presence of EBV in 676 consecutive gastric(More)
14-3-3ơ is an intracellular, phosphoserine binding protein and proposed to be involved in tumorigenesis. However, the expression dynamics of 14-3-3ơ and its clinicopathological/prognostic significance in human tumors are still controversial. The method of immunohistochemistry (IHC) and Western blot were utilized to examine the protein expression of 14-3-3ơ(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the prevalence of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-associated gastric carcinomas in Guangzhou, their clinicopathologic features and related protein expressions including DNMT1, p16, and cyclin D1. METHOD A total of 676 cases of EBV-associated gastric carcinoma were included in the study. The presence of EBV-encoded small RNA1 (EBER1), a(More)
OBJECTIVES Although evidence supports a role for inflammation in interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS), the mechanism remains unknown. We determined whether inflammation causes an elevated expression of nerve growth factor (NGF) and transient receptor potential vanilloid receptor subtype 1 (TRPV1) and correlated them with the symptoms.

Expressions of OPN and αvβ3 are associated with a poor prognosis in many malignancies. However, their relationship in hepatocellular carcinoma remains unclear. We systematically collected hepatocellular carcinoma tissue samples from 305 patients over 3 years, and analyzed the status of OPN and αvβ3 in hepatocellular carcinoma and correlate expression with(More)
BACKGROUND Propofol is one of the extensively and commonly used intravenous anesthetics and has the ability to influence the proliferation, motility, and invasiveness of many cancer cells. In this study, the effects of propofol on hepatocellular carcinoma cells invasion ability were examined. METHODS We assessed the invasion ability of HepG2 cells in(More)
Recent studies have suggested that dysregulation of autophagy plays a pivotal role in tumorigenesis. Here, we determined the prognostic value of autophagy-related protein Beclin 1 in gastric cancer. A total of 153 primary gastric cancer patients were subjected to analysis of Beclin 1 expression and survival prognosis. Among them, 68 patients were assigned(More)
To evaluate the effects of tramadol on the proinflammatory responses in a rat model of incisional pain by investigating its effects on nociceptive thresholds and serum interleukin-6 (IL-6) and IL-2 levels. Forty-two male Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats scheduled for plantar incision were randomly divided into 7 groups (n=6 in each group). Rats in Group 1 receiving(More)
