BACKGROUND/AIMS The aim of this study was to investigate the role of microRNA miR-761 in the progression and metastasis of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), and the mechanisms by which miR-761 regulates cell proliferation and metastatic activity of NSCLC cell lines. METHODS Quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR) was used to assess miR-761 expression in(More)
BACKGROUND Azathioprine is widely used for neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) patients, while a consensus of timing to receive azathioprine has not been proposed. OBJECTIVE The objective of this paper was to evaluate the efficacy of early access of azathioprine in NMOSD patients. METHODS We conducted a retrospective review of NMOSD patients(More)
Free radical toxicity due to poorly maintained cellular redox levels is crucial events that have been associated with the pathogenesis of Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) patients. Uric acid (UA) and albumin correlate with oxidative stress in some degree. We aimed to evaluate the relationship between GBS and serum levels of UA and albumin in the present(More)
Oxidized low-density lipoprotein (ox-LDL) is a major and critical mediator of atherosclerosis, and the underlying mechanism is thought to involve the ox-LDL-induced dysfunction of endothelial cells (ECs). MicroRNAs (miRNAs), which are a group of small non-coding RNA molecules that post-transcriptionally regulate the expression of target genes, have been(More)
Let denote the class of connected plane bipartite graphs with no pendant edges. A finite face s of a graph G ∈ is said to be a forcing face of G if the subgraph of G obtained by deleting all vertices of s together with their incident edges has exactly one perfect matching. This is a natural generalization of the concept of forcing hexagons in a hexagonal(More)
OBJECTIVE Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is a neurodegenerative and inflammatory demyelination disorder, and oxidative stress is concerned with the pathogenesis of the disease. Also, we found that thyroid hormone level is correlated to the oxidative and antioxidant status in previous studies. Our study was aimed to find the possible relationship between the(More)
The idea of integral sum graphs was introduced by Harary (1994). A graph G is said to be an integral sum graph if its nodes can be given a labeling f with distinct integers, so that for any two distinct nodes u and v of G, uv is an edge of G if and only if f(u) + f(v) = f(w) for some node w in G. A tree is said to be a generalized star if it can be obtained(More)
Acute transverse myelitis (ATM) is a progressive and autoimmune disease with inflammatory cell infiltrates into the spinal cord, and thyroid hormone (TH) level is associated with the oxidative and antioxidant status. Variations in oxidative stress and antioxidant levels are related to the pathogenesis of autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. Our study aimed(More)
