Authors: Zhao Q, Shi JX, Hu R, Li Q, Zhang CY, Li JS Abstract To date, the efficacy of glucocorticoid therapy to reduce mortality in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) has remained controversial among the studies available. The present meta-analysis study aimed to further clarify the impact of glucocorticoid therapy on mortality in patients with ARDS by performing a pooled analysis of the previous data. The PubMed, Chinese Knowledge Infrastructure, Wanfang and Cochrane trials databases were searched for relevant studies published between 1966 and 2016. Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) that ...

Authors: Ding Y, Ding K, Yu K, Zou D, Yang H, He X, Mo W, Yu X, Ding X Abstract The 2010 American Society of Clinical Oncology guidelines have reduced the immunohistochemistry cut-off value for determining estrogen receptor b positivity from 10 to 1% of stained cells in breast cancer. In clinical practice, low-hormone receptor positive (low HR+) tumors are classified in the luminal subtype, although they exhibit aggressive features and poor prognosis. Information regarding the prognosis of patients with breast cancer following treatment with optimal endocrine therapy and neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) is currently ...

In conclusion, Abdominal DTs were prone to occur in patients with FAP with a history of abdominal surgery. Mutations in the APC, CTNNB1 and MUTYH genes were detected in patients with DTs. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study of abdominal DT occurrence in patients with MUTYH-associated FAP. The prognosis of DT associated with FAP may be worse compared with that of sporadic DT. PMID: 31807167 [PubMed]

However, rapid charge recombination greatly hinders its practical applications. Herein, we present a cascaded electron transition pathway in a ternary heterostructure consisting of CdS quantum dots, carbon dots (CDs) and CuWO4 hollow spheres, which prov...

Respiratory diseases are associated with a large disease burden. Heatwaves and cold spells, the two most common extreme weather events, have been shown to have crucial negative effects on the prevalence of respiratory diseases. However, impacts of extreme weather on the prevalence of respiratory diseases has been largely overlooked in western China, ...
