OBJECTIVES: We investigated whether the combination of systemic chemotherapy (SCT) and liver-directed therapy (LDT) was superior to chemotherapy alone for patients with pancreatic adenocarcinoma and synchronous liver metastases (PACLM). METHODS: We reviewed the medical records of 184 patients treated with SCT ± LDT at Tianjin Medical University Cancer Hospital from 2001 to 2015. Overall survival (OS) was the primary end-point. The role of treatment modality and other clinical factors was evaluated by univariate and Cox regression analyses...

Air-stable, lightweight, and electrically conductive polymers are highly desired as the electrodes for next-generation electronic devices. However, the low electrical conductivity and low carrier mobility of polymers are the key bottlenecks that limit their adoption. We demonstrate that the key to addressing these limitations is to molecularly engineer the crystallization and morphology of polymers. We use oxidative chemical vapor deposition (oCVD) and hydrobromic acid treatment as an effective tool to achieve such engineering for conducting polymer poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT)...

This study describes an analytical method to control the quality of potassium aspartate and magnesium aspartate (PAMA) injection based on the simultaneous detection of the main components (K+ , Mg2+ and Asp) and impurities (Na+ ) using a mixed-mode chromatography coupled with charged aerosol detector. To obtain optimal chromatographic separation, the effects of organic content, column temperature, buffer types, pH and concentrations were evaluated. A Response Surface Methodology (RSM) optimal design was performed after single factor experiment...

Objective: Although the prognostic value of programmed cell death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) expression in non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) has been evaluated in many studies, the results remain controversial. To investigate the prognostic role of PD-L1 expression and the association between PD-L1 expression and clinicopathological features of NHL, we performed a meta-analysis. Methods: The PubMed, EMBASE, and Cochrane Library databases were searched up to November 30, 2017. The hazard ratio (HR), 95% confidence interval (CI), and odds ratios (OR) with 95% CIs were combined to evaluate the association of PD-L1 expression with overall survival (OS) and clinicopathological features...

Reprogramming of somatic cells to induced pluripotent stem cells reconfigures chromatin modifications. Whether and how this process is regulated by signals originating in the mitochondria remain unknown. Here we show that the mitochondrial permeability transition pore (mPTP), a key regulator of mitochondrial homeostasis, undergoes short-term opening during the early phase of reprogramming and that this transient activation enhances reprogramming. In mouse embryonic fibroblasts, greater mPTP opening correlates with higher reprogramming efficiency...

Fuzzy clustering assigns a probability of membership for a datum to a cluster, which veritably reflects real-world clustering scenarios but significantly increases the complexity of understanding fuzzy clusters. Many studies have demonstrated that visualization techniques for multi-dimensional data are beneficial to understand fuzzy clusters. However, no empirical evidence exists on the effectiveness and efficiency of these visualization techniques in solving analytical tasks featured by fuzzy clusters. In this paper, we conduct a controlled experiment to evaluate the ability of fuzzy clusters analysis to use four multi-dimensional visualization techniques, namely, parallel coordinate plot, scatterplot matrix, principal component analysis, and Radviz...

In this study, a Ti-diamond-Ti structured ultraviolet photodetector was fabricated on a homoepitaxial diamond layer with an oxygen-terminated surface. The properties of the Ti/diamond schottky contact were measured using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and the barrier height was found to be 1.15 eV. At a bias of 3 V, the responsivity at 210 nm was only 4.29 mA/W, while at 12 V, the responsivity increased rapidly to 51 mA/W. The increase can be ascribed to the photocurrent gain. With the further increase in voltage, an avalanche effect was produced, and the responsivity could reach 1...

OBJECTIVE: CRF01_AE is the most prevalent human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1) subtype among men who have sex with men (MSM) in China. However, the characteristics and underlying mechanism of the accelerated CD4 T-cell decline in CRF01_AE-infected MSM remain incompletely understood. DESIGN: A long-term prospective follow-up study was conducted with 1338 MSM at risk of HIV-1 infection in Northeast China. MSM with primary HIV-1 CRF01_AE infection were identified and followed for 3-6 years to explore the determinants of rapid CD4 T-cell decline...

Ambient fine particulate matter (PM2.5 ) is a complex mixture associated with lung cancer risk. PM2.5 -bound nitro-polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (NPAHs) have been demonstrated to possess mutagenicity and carcinogenicity. Previous studies showed that PM2.5 induced DNA damage, whereas there is little knowledge of whether 9-nitroanthracene (9-NA), a typical compound of NPAHs in PM2.5 , causes DNA damage. Also, the regulating mechanisms of PM2.5 and 9-NA in DNA damage and repair are not yet fully established...

Cancer is a complex disease that is driven by genetic alterations. There has been a rapid development of genome-wide techniques during the last decade along with a significant lowering of the cost of gene sequencing, which has generated widely available cancer genomic data. However, the interpretation of genomic data and the prediction of the association of genetic variations with cancer and disease phenotypes still requires significant improvement. Missense mutations, which can render proteins non-functional and provide a selective growth advantage to cancer cells, are frequently detected in cancer...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the pregnancy outcomes for patients with stage 3-4 chronic kidney disease (CKD) and the effects of pregnancy on kidney function. METHODS: Clinical data of pregnant women with CKD in the Peking University First Hospital between January 1st 2005 and October 1st 2016 were retrospectively analysed. The pregnancy outcomes of patients with different stages of CKD were compared. Patients with stage 3-4 CKD were followed up by telephone interview, and non-pregnant patients with stage 3-4 CKD were selected using the propensity score method to analyse the effects of pregnancy on kidney function...

Understanding the genetic mechanism of cold tolerance in rice is important to mine elite genes from rice landraces and breed excellent cultivars for this trait. In this study, a genome-wide association study (GWAS) was performed using high-density single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) obtained using specific-locus amplified fragment sequencing (SLAF-seq) technology from a core collection of landraces of rice. A total of 67,511 SNPs obtained from 116,643 SLAF tags were used for genotyping the 150 accessions of rice landraces in the Ting's rice core collection...

Group A Streptococcus (GAS) requires iron for growth, and heme is an important source of iron for GAS. Streptococcus heme transporter A (HtsA) is the lipoprotein component of the GAS heme-specific ABC transporter (HtsABC). The objective of this study is to examine the contribution of HtsABC to virulence and host interaction of hypervirulent M1T1 GAS using an isogenic htsA deletion mutant (Δ htsA ). The htsA deletion exhibited a significantly increased survival rate, reduced skin lesion size, and reduced systemic GAS dissemination in comparison to the wild type strain...

A fast, sensitive, and convenient dual-emission water detector was robustly fabricated. This detector was prepared with blue fluorescent carbon dots (CDs) and red fluorescent Cu nanoclusters (NCs), and showed two well-resolved and intensity-comparable fluorescence peaks under a single excitation wavelength. Moreover, it showed strong red fluorescence in organic solvent due to the aggregation-induced emission enhancement (AIEE) properties of the Cu NCs, but the red fluorescence was gradually quenched with an increasing amount of water, whereas the blue fluorescence remained constant...

Tumor repopulation during therapy is an important cause of treatment failure. Strategies to overcome repopulation are arising in parallel with advances in the comprehension of underlying biological mechanisms. Here, we reveal a new mechanism by which high mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) released by dying cells during radiotherapy or chemotherapy could stimulate living tumor cell proliferationInhibition or genetic ablation of HMGB1 suppressed tumor cell proliferation. This effect was due to binding of HMGB1with the member receptor for advanced glycation end-products (RAGE), which activated downstream ERK and p38 signaling pathway and promoted cell proliferation...
