Pulse Wave Cycle Features Analysis of Different Blood Pressure Grades in the Elderly

Background and Objective. The same range of blood pressure values may reflect different vascular functions, especially in the elderly. Therefore, a single blood pressure value may not comprehensively reveal cardiovascular function. This study focused on identifying pulse wave features in the elderly that can be used to show functional differences when blood pressure values are in...

Hemoporfin Photodynamic Therapy for Port-Wine Stain: A Randomized Controlled Trial

Background and Objectives Photodynamic therapy (PDT) has shown potentially beneficial results in treating port-wine stain, but its benefit–risk profile remains undefined. This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of PDT conducted with hemoporfin and a 532 nm continuous wave laser to treat port-wine stain clinically. Patients and Methods This randomized clinical trial...

Preoperative neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio is an independent prognostic marker in patients with laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma

Background Neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has been shown to be associated with prognosis in various solid tumors. This study aimed to evaluate the prognostic role of NLR in patients with laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC). Methods A total of 141 LSCC patients were retrospectively reviewed. Patients’ demographics were analyzed along with clinical and pathologic data. The...

Adaptation of an evidence-based intervention to promote colorectal cancer screening: a quasi-experimental study

Background To accelerate the translation of research findings into practice for underserved populations, we investigated the adaptation of an evidence-based intervention (EBI), designed to increase colorectal cancer (CRC) screening in one limited English-proficient (LEP) population (Chinese), for another LEP group (Vietnamese) with overlapping cultural and health beliefs. Methods...

A method for detecting and correcting feature misidentification on expression microarrays

Background Much of the microarray data published at Stanford is based on mouse and human arrays produced under controlled and monitored conditions at the Brown and Botstein laboratories and at the Stanford Functional Genomics Facility (SFGF). Nevertheless, as large datasets based on the Stanford Human array began to accumulate, a small but significant number of discrepancies were...

15-Lipoxygenase-1 mediates cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitor-induced apoptosis in gastric cancer

It has been found that expression of 15-lipoxygenase-1 (15-LOX-1) and its main product, 13-S-hydroxyoctadecadienoic acid (13-S-HODE), are decreased in human colorectal and esophageal cancers and that non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can therapeutically induce 15-LOX-1 expression to trigger apoptosis in those cancer cells. We found that a specific cyclooxygenase-2...

A Randomized Controlled Trial of Interventions to Promote Cervical Cancer Screening Among Chinese Women in North America

Background: North American Chinese women have lower levels of Papanicolaou (Pap) testing than other population subgroups. We conducted a randomized controlled trial to evaluate the effectiveness of two alternative cervical cancer screening interventions for Chinese women living in North America. Methods: Four hundred and eighty-two Pap testing underutilizers were identified from...

Activation of the caspase-8/Bid and Bax pathways in aspirin-induced apoptosis in gastric cancer

Aspirin-induced apoptosis is one of the important mechanisms for its antitumour effect against gastric cancer. We aimed at investigating the involvement of bcl-2 family members in the apoptotic pathway in gastric cancer. Gastric cancer cell line AGS and MKN-45 were observed as to cell growth inhibition and induction of apoptosis in response to treatment with aspirin. Cell...
