To explore the role of polymorphisms of p53-related genes in etiology of oral cancer, we investigated joint effects of seven putatively functional polymorphisms of p53 (codon 72 Arg/Pro), p73 (4/14 GC/AT), murine double minute 2 gene (MDM2; A2164G and T2580G) and MDM4 (rs11801299 G > A, rs10900598 G > T and rs1380576 C > G) on risk of human papillomavirus(More)
STUDY DESIGN A retrospective study. OBJECTIVE To assess the radiographical bony union and clinical outcomes of 207 patients who underwent an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) with only local decompression bone for the treatment of cervical disc degeneration. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Many sources of bone graft have been used for ACDF.(More)
BACKGROUND Renal cell carcinoma associated with Xp11.2 translocation and TFE gene fusion (Xp11.2/TFE RCC), and collecting duct carcinoma (CDC) are uncommon subtypes of renal cell carcinomas. PURPOSE To investigate the multislice CT (MSCT) characteristics of these two tumor types. MATERIAL AND METHODS Nine patients with Xp11.2/TFE RCC and 10 patients(More)
microRNAs (miRNAs) have been reported to play a crucial role in regulating a variety of genes pivotal for tumor metastasis. miR-126 is well known as one of the angiogenesis regulatory miRNAs. Recent studies have reported controversial roles of miR-126 in tumor progression. In this study, we sought to investigate the potential roles of miR-126 in colorectal(More)
Robustness against noise and reverberation is critical for ASR systems deployed in real-world environments. In robust ASR, corrupted speech is normally enhanced using speech separation or enhancement algorithms before recognition. This paper presents a novel joint training framework for speech separation and recognition. The key idea is to concatenate a(More)
OBJECTIVES To obtain permeability surface (PS) values using multi-slice helical CT perfusion imaging and to evaluate the spatial distribution correlation between PS values and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression in solitary brain metastases. METHODS Imaging was performed on 21 patients, PS values being calculated from the central, border(More)
Previous studies have indicated a critical role of adenosine and its receptors in the pathogenesis of liver diseases. The aim of this study was to determine the contribution of A1 adenosine receptor (A1AR) to acute ethanol-induced hepatotoxicity. Wild-type (WT) and A1AR(-/-) mice were intragastrically administered with ethanol (5 g/kg), and hepatic injury(More)
BACKGROUND There are relatively few reports focusing on clinical and multi-slice CT (MSCT) imaging findings of mucinous tubular and spindle cell carcinoma (MTSCC). Our study aimed to characterize the clinical and MSCT imaging features of MTSCC. METHODS The imaging findings in 17 patients with MTSCC by MSCT were retrospectively studied. MSCT was undertaken(More)
AIM To investigate the role of intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) and its counter receptors LFA-1 and Mac-1 in acute pancreatitis (AP). METHODS SD rats were allocated to AP group and control group randomly (25 rats each). AP was induced by infusion of 5% chenodeoxycholic acid into the pancreatic duct, followed by ligation of pancreatic duct. The(More)
It has been indicated that both cadmium (Cd) and lead (Pb) may have adverse effects on the bone. However, most studies have only focused on a single factor. The primary and main and interactive effects of Cd and Pb on bone mineral density (BMD) in a Chinese population were observed in this study. A total of 321 individuals (202 women and 119 men), aged 27(More)
