Cortical GABAergic inhibitory interneurons have crucial roles in the development and function of the cerebral cortex. In rodents, nearly all neocortical interneurons are generated from the subcortical ganglionic eminences. In humans and nonhuman primates, however, the developmental origin of neocortical GABAergic interneurons remains unclear. Here we show(More)
BACKGROUND The efficacy of induction treatment plus surgery for improving postoperative survival in patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in stages IIIA-N2 is controversial, especially compared with the combined chemotherapy and radiotherapy. We therefore performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of the published phase III randomized(More)
The poor bioavailability and therapeutic response exhibited by conventional ophthalmic solutions due to rapid pre-corneal elimination of the drug may be overcome by the use of in situ gel-forming systems that are instilled as drops into the eye and then undergo a sol-gel transition in the cul-de-sac. The present work describes the formulation and evaluation(More)
The objective of this study was to investigate the application of Gelucire44/14 as a novel absorption enhancer in ophthalmic drug delivery system. Six compounds, namely ribavirin, puerarin, mangiferin, berberin hydrochloride, baicalin, and curcumin in the order of increasing lipophilicity were selected as model drugs. The effect of Gelucire44/14 on(More)
Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) from peripheral blood have been detected in most epithelial malignancies. CTCs are very heterogeneous and can be captured via different technologies based on their physical and biological properties. The detection rates have varied depending on the technology used for enumeration. Detection, monitoring, and molecular analysis(More)
Hsa-miRNA-206 (miR-206), highly expressed in skeletal muscle, has recently been discovered to have anticancer properties in different tissues. However, the role of miR-206 on lung cancer is still ambiguous. In this study, we investigated the role of miR-206 on the development of lung cancer. The results indicated that miR-206 expression was suppressed in(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to assess the postoperative complications after lung resection for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in elderly patients and to identify possible associated risk factors. METHODS All patients aged 70 years or older who underwent pulmonary resection for NSCLC by either an open approach or by a thoracoscopic approach(More)
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related mortality in men worldwide. Aberrant RARβ promoter methylation has been frequently investigated in non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC), the most common form of lung cancer. The aim of present study was to carry out a meta-analysis and a systematic review to evaluate clinicopathological significance of(More)
PURPOSE To prepare and evaluate the solid lipid nanoparticles of baicalin (BA-SLN) for ocular drug delivery system. METHODS The BA-SLN was prepared by emulsification/ultrasonication method. The appearance of BA-SLN was examined by the negative stain method. The mean diameter and zeta potential of BA-SLN were determined using a Zetasizer. The entrapment(More)
Baicalin has been reported to have anti-inflammatory and anti-cataract effects on eye tissues, but it has a low bioavailability partly due to its poor stability of baicalin, the special anatomic structure and efficient protective mechanism of eyes. The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation between the stability of baicalin and in situ(More)
