Methods: This is a multi-center study of 370 PTMC patients who underwent active surveillance more than 1 year. The changes in volume and maximum diameter between initial and last ultrasonography were evaluated to identify the natural course of PTMC during active surveillance Results: Patients' age at diagnosis was 51±12 years, and 110 patients (30%) were

Inhibition of CCL19 benefits non‑alcoholic fatty liver disease by inhibiting TLR4/NF‑κB‑p65 signaling. Mol Med Rep. 2018 Sep 14;: Authors: Zhao J, Wang Y, Wu X, Tong P, Yue Y, Gao S, Huang D, Huang J Abstract Non‑alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), which affects approximately one‑third of the general population, has become a global health problem. Thus, more effective treatments for NAFLD are urgently required. In the present study, high levels of C‑C motif ligand 19 (CCL19), signaling pathways such as Toll‑like receptor 4 (TLR4)/nuclear factor‑κB (NF‑κB), and pro...

Bafilomycin A1 alleviates depression‑like symptoms in chronic unpredictable mild stress rats. Mol Med Rep. 2018 Sep 03;: Authors: Wang Z, Liu S, Pan W, Guo Y, Shen Z Abstract Major depression is a multifactorial disease. Emerging evidence has suggested that autophagy is involved in the pathological process of depressive disorders. Bafilomycin A1 (Baf A1), is an inhibitor of vacuolar H+‑ATPase that is frequently used at high concentrations to block late‑phase autophagy. However, whether Baf A1 has antidepressant effects remains to be elucidated. The current study aimed to evaluate t...
