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. ...
A prochelator activated by beta-secretase inhibits Abeta aggregation and suppresses copper-induced reactive oxygen species formation.
(J Am Chem Soc, 2010-04-14)
The intersection of the amyloid cascade hypothesis and the implication of metal ions in Alzheimer's disease progression has sparked an interest in using metal-binding compounds as potential therapeutic agents. In the present ...
Co-orientation of replication and transcription preserves genome integrity.
(PLoS Genet, 2010-01-15)
In many bacteria, there is a genome-wide bias towards co-orientation of replication and transcription, with essential and/or highly-expressed genes further enriched co-directionally. We previously found that reversing this ...
