REVIEW
Armin Attar, Ahmad Monabati, Mohammad-Ebrahim Parsanezhad
Vascular remodeling is an essential component of gestation. Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) play an important role in the regulation of vascular homeostasis. The results of studies measuring the number of EPCs in normal pregnancies and in preeclampsia have been highly controversial or even contradictory because of some variations in technical issues and different methodologies enumerating three distinct subsets of EPCs: circulating angiogenic cells (CAC), colony forming unit endothelial cells (CFU-ECs), and endothelial colony-forming cells (ECFCs)...

BACKGROUND: To assess the efficacy of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) patients treated with definitive chemoradiotherapy (CRT). METHODS: The clinical data of patients with ESCC treated with chemoradiotherapy with or without NAC were collected and retrospectively reviewed. The overall survival, locoregional failure-free survival, and distant failure-free survival were analyzed statistically. RESULTS: A total of 60 patients fulfilled the inclusion criteria, of which 41 were treated with NAC-CRT and 19 were treated with CRT-alone...

BACKGROUND: Refractive error is the major cause of moderate and severe visual impairment. Visual impairment limits people's ability to perform daily tasks and affects their quality of life. Longitudinal data on the refractive status of the elderly was available only for whites and Africans. The purpose of this study was to report the 7-year incidence of myopia, hyperopia and refractive error change as well as their associated risk factors in a metropolitan elderly Chinese population. METHODS: The Shihpai Eye Study 2006 included 460/824 (55...

BACKGROUND: The traditional treatment of subarterial ventricular septal defect (VSD) is open heart surgery. This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility, safety and outcome of transcatheter closure with the Amplatzer duct occluder (ADO). METHODS: Between March 2012 and June 2015, a total of 16 patients (8 male and 8 female) with subarterial VSD who underwent transcatheter closure with the ADO were enrolled retrospectively. Their age ranged from 3.0 to 65.6 years, with the median of 35...

BACKGROUND: The leaves of Folium Syringae (FS) have been long used as a traditional Chinese folk medicine for their anti-inflammatory effect, utilized as an antibacterial and antiviral treatment. The purpose of this study was to investigate the potential hepatoprotective effects of FS on acetaminophen-induced hepatic injury in primary hepatocytes and mice. METHODS: Hepatocytes obtained by the inverse perfusion method were divided randomly into five groups. Prior to acetaminophen exposure, 3 different doses of FS ethanol extracts were given to hepatocytes and mice, respectively...

BACKGROUND: To retrospectively evaluate the association between possible influencing factors and failed first attempts to inject a contrast agent intra-articularly under ultrasound (US)-guidance for direct magnetic resonance (MR) arthrography of the hip joint. METHODS: Ninety consecutive patients (38 women and 52 men; mean age, 42 years) undergoing US-guided hip MR arthrography (3 bilaterally) were retrospectively included in this study. The potential influencing factors were sex, age, body mass index (BMI), side of injection, target site, trajectory of the needle, additional use of needle tip rotation, failed first-attempt, and capsule elongation at the site of needle insertion...

BACKGROUND: Hypoxia-induced factors (HIF) has a role in angiogenesis and regulate tumorigenesis of cancer cell. The HIF is the best-identified mechanism that shows imbalance between consumption and oxygen supply in progressing tumor. This study of HIF-2α expression in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) aimed to investigate the relationship of HIF-2α and pathology characteristics related to its clinical correlation. METHODS: Fifty-eight samples of OSCC and adjacent tissues were fixed in paraffin for microarray preparation...

BACKGROUND: Hyperlipidemia causes arteriosclerosis, a risk factor for coronary heart disease. Prevention of hyperlipidemia by improving dietary habits has recently attracted attention. In this regard, we investigated whether Aralia elata (Miq.) Seem (AE) extract inhibits hepatic cholesterol accumulation and modulate the cellular signaling pathway. METHODS: To determine AE's cholesterol regulating mechanism, we measured cholesterol level, 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase activity and cholesterol regulating-related gene expression in HepG2 cells and in high-fat diet (HFD)-induced mice using ELISA and RT-PCR assay...

BACKGROUND: Although rotational atherectomy (RA) has been an accepted and widely used medical procedure for more than 15 years, the clinical outcomes of RA in high-risk populations remain elusive. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate the safety and efficacy of RA for patients with acute or recent myocardial infarction (MI), and report the short- and long-term clinical outcomes in this population. METHODS: We enrolled patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and RA at two medical centers in Taiwan between January 2004 and December 2013...

BACKGROUND: Subtrochanteric osteotomy and proximal placement of acetabular components are two common procedures used to manage irreducible, high riding developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH). Some common and specific complications are observed in both procedures. We aimed to compare both the outcomes and complications between these two procedures. METHODS: Twenty-one patients with unilateral, Crowe type III-IV DDH who were seen between 2002 and 2014 were included in this study...

BACKGROUND: To evaluate the failure pattern and identify predictors of locoregional control in lateralized buccogingival cancer after postoperative radiotherapy (RT) at a single institution. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the clinical data of 150 patients with lateralized oral squamous cell carcinoma, including carcinoma of the buccal mucosa, gingiva and retromolar trigone. All patients underwent radical surgery followed by postoperative RT with or without concurrent chemotherapy...

BACKGROUND: Acupuncture is a rapidly growing medical specialty worldwide. This study aimed to analyze the acupuncture publications from 1988 to 2015 by using the Web of Science (WoS) database. Familiarity with the trend of acupuncture publications will facilitate a better understanding of existing academic research in acupuncture and its applications. METHODS: Academic articles published focusing on acupuncture were retrieved and analyzed from the WoS database which included articles published in Science Citation Index-Expanded and Social Science Citation Indexed journals from 1988 to 2015...

BACKGROUND: Liver inflammation may induce fibrogenesis, cirrhosis and portal hypertension. Liver cirrhosis is characterized by increased intrahepatic resistance and enhanced vasoconstrictive response. The splanchnic vasodilatation, angiogenesis and portosystemic collaterals formation further bring about lethal complications. Ascorbate is a potent antioxidant with anti-inflammation, anti-fibrosis, and anti-angiogenesis effects. However, the relevant influences in chronic liver injury have not been sufficiently explored...

BACKGROUND: Liver fibrosis causes portal hypertension which dilates collateral vasculature and enhances extra-hepatic angiogenesis including intrapulmonary shunts, which subsequently complicates with hepatopulmonary syndrome. Metformin is an anti-diabetic agent which possesses anti-inflammation and anti-angiogenesis properties. This study evaluated the effect of metformin treatment on liver and lung in a non-diabetic rat model with biliary cirrhosis induced via common bile duct ligation (CBDL)...

BACKGROUND: Glutamine has a very important role in the human body, including pH balance in an acidic environment, as well as supporting the TCA cycle in cancer cell growth. However, the expression of transglutaminase-2 (TG-2) in oral cancer growth related to renal function is unknown. Here we examined TG-2 and its expression as a prognostic tool. METHODS: Fifty-six oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) tissues were collected with the inclusion of tumor in any region of oral area, and patients with creatinine (Cr) and blood urea nitrogen (BUN) results...
