A study on confocal endomicroscopy in comparison with histopathology for polypoidal lesions of the gastrointestinal tract: A prospective single-centre experience
ConclusionCLE is a useful tool for prediction of histology to assess the polypoidal lesions of the GI tract, and it may avoid polypectomy at least in some patients.

HOTTIP expression has been demonstrated to play a crucial oncogenic role in cancer pathogenesis, and is said to be associated with poor human cancer prognosis. In prostate cancer, HOTTIP has been identified as an oncogene, but its clinicopathologic significance remains unclear. A...

ConclusionsOur study data indicated that miR-27b-3p is downregulated by aberrant DNA methylation in GC. In addition, miR-27b-3p suppresses GC cell proliferation, invasion, and migration via negative expression regulation of GSPT1, which could be a potential therapeutic target.
ConclusionsSST or CXCR4 expression in PAC is clearly of no therapeutic relevance. However, indirect targeting of these tumours via SST3, SST5, or CXCR4 on tumour microvessels may represent a promising additional therapeutic strategy.

Senthil-NathanAbstractLight and pheromone trap-catches of yellow stem-borer (YSB) [Scirpophaga incertulas (Walker)] were monitored in low-land rice during summer 2017 in the Chhattisgarh, India region to develop biological control management strategies for areas with low winter temperatures. High catches of males and females in light trap started during March 05 to 11th, 2017, in association with 8.5% dead-heart symptom, indicative of YSB damage to the central shoot, whi...
