Auriculotherapy for pain management: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.
(J Altern Complement Med, 2010-10)
OBJECTIVES: Side-effects of standard pain medications can limit their use. Therefore, nonpharmacologic pain relief techniques such as auriculotherapy may play an important role in pain management. Our aim was to conduct ...
Daily intake of antioxidants in relation to survival among adult patients diagnosed with malignant glioma.
(BMC Cancer, 2010-05-19)
BACKGROUND: Malignant glioma is a rare cancer with poor survival. The influence of diet and antioxidant intake on glioma survival is not well understood. The current study examines the association between antioxidant intake ...
Quality control autophagy: a joint effort of ubiquitin, protein deacetylase and actin cytoskeleton.
Autophagy has been predominantly studied as a nonselective self-digestion process that recycles macromolecules and produces energy in response to starvation. However, autophagy independent of nutrient status has long been ...
VCP/p97 is essential for maturation of ubiquitin-containing autophagosomes and this function is impaired by mutations that cause IBMPFD.
VCP (VCP/p97) is a ubiquitously expressed member of the AAA(+)-ATPase family of chaperone-like proteins that regulates numerous cellular processes including chromatin decondensation, homotypic membrane fusion and ...
Stable ischemic heart disease in the older adults.
(J Geriatr Cardiol, 2016-02)
The genomic analysis of erythrocyte microRNA expression in sickle cell diseases.
(PLoS One, 2008-06-04)
BACKGROUND: Since mature erythrocytes are terminally differentiated cells without nuclei and organelles, it is commonly thought that they do not contain nucleic acids. In this study, we have re-examined this issue by analyzing ...
Role of mast cells in inflammatory bowel disease and inflammation-associated colorectal neoplasia in IL-10-deficient mice.
(PLoS One, 2010-08-17)
BACKGROUND: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is hypothesized to result from stimulation of immune responses against resident intestinal bacteria within a genetically susceptible host. Mast cells may play a critical role ...
Direct TLR2 signaling is critical for NK cell activation and function in response to vaccinia viral infection.
(PLoS Pathog, 2010-03-12)
Natural killer (NK) cells play an essential role in innate immune control of poxviral infections in vivo. However, the mechanism(s) underlying NK cell activation and function in response to poxviruses remains poorly understood. ...
Thromboembolism and bleeding in bladder cancer.
(Oncology (Williston Park), 2014-10)
Bladder cancer is a unique disease process in that clinically significant hemorrhage can occur simultaneously with equally significant aberrant clotting. With hematuria the key presenting symptom of bladder cancer, hemorrhage ...
