In sporadic colon tumors, multistep process of well-known genetic alterations accelerates carcinogenesis; however, this does not appear to be the case in inflammation-related ones. We previously established a model of inflammation-related colon carcinogenesis using human colonic adenoma cells, and identified fascin as a driver gene of this process. We analyzed the microRNAs involved in the stable fascin expression in colon adenocarcinoma cells.

Increasing evidence indicates that neuroinflammation plays a crucial role in the pathogenesis of temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). However, it is unclear how the perpetuate inflammation develops. Some rec...
Chronic apical periodontitis (CAP) is defined as chronic inflammation of the dental pulp and root canal system. Porphyromonas endodontalis lipopolysaccharide ( P. endodontalis LPS) plays an important...
Fascin-1 is a cytoskeletal protein and it can specifically bind to F-actin, it can be abnormally expressed in a variety of solid tumors. Fascin-1 was identified as a factor for poor prognosis in non-s...
MicroRNA-146a (miR-146a) is reportedly implicated in the pathogenesis of ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury. Its role in the cerebral I/R injury is however unclear and requires further investigation. I...
Arachidonic acid (AA) can be converted into prostaglandins (PGs) or leukotrienes (LTs) by the enzymatic actions of cyclooxygenases (COX-1 and COX-2) or 5-lipoxygenase (5-LO), respectively. PGs and LTs...
Inflammation begins during early stages of CKD in which neutrophil counts are increased, whereas lymphocyte counts are decreased during inflammation. In addition to known conventional indi...
The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy of three exercise programs in patients with chronic low back pain: Segmental stabilization, superficial strengthening and stretching. ...
The incidence of chronic nonspecific low back pain is the highest in the world population and can lead to disability. One of the standards treatments for this condition is the segmental st...
Obesity is an established risk factor for development and progression of kidney disease. Intentional weight loss in people without kidney disease results in an improvement in diabetes, blo...
Stroke patients usually have difficulties with moving and are venerable to secondary problems such as sarcopenia and strength loss. These problems may accelerate the disability process dur...
A subtype of bradykinin receptor that is induced in response to INFLAMMATION. It may play a role in chronic inflammation and has a high specificity for KININS lacking the C-terminal ARGININE such as des-Arg(10)-kallidin and des-Arg(9)-bradykinin. The receptor is coupled to G-PROTEIN, GQ-G11 ALPHA FAMILY and G-PROTEIN, GI-GO ALPHA FAMILY signaling proteins.
Inflammation of the PERIAPICAL TISSUE. It includes general, unspecified, or acute nonsuppurative inflammation. Chronic nonsuppurative inflammation is PERIAPICAL GRANULOMA. Suppurative inflammation is PERIAPICAL ABSCESS.
Chronic inflammation and loss of PERIODONTIUM that is associated with the amount of DENTAL PLAQUE or DENTAL CALCULUS present. Chronic periodontitis occurs mostly in adults and was called adult periodontitis, but this disease can appear in young people.
A poly(A) binding protein that has a variety of functions such as mRNA stabilization and protection of RNA from nuclease activity. Although poly(A) binding protein I is considered a major cytoplasmic RNA-binding protein it is also found in the CELL NUCLEUS and may be involved in transport of mRNP particles.
Acute or chronic inflammation of the arachnoid membrane of the meninges most often involving the spinal cord or base of the brain. This term generally refers to a persistent inflammatory process characterized by thickening of the ARACHNOID membrane and dural adhesions. Associated conditions include prior surgery, infections, trauma, SUBARACHNOID HEMORRHAGE, and chemical irritation. Clinical features vary with the site of inflammation, but include cranial neuropathies, radiculopathies, and myelopathies. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1997, Ch48, p25)
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
Bioinformatics is the application of computer software and hardware to the management of biological data to create useful information. Computers are used to gather, store, analyze and integrate biological and genetic information which can then be applied...
