Hide Abstract
The aim of this study was to investigate the prognostic value of chemokine receptor CCR7 expression and intratumoral FOXP3(+) regulatory T cells (Tregs) in gastric cancer. CCR7(+) tumor cells and FOXP3(+) Tregs were assessed by immunohistochemistry in tissue microarrays containing gastric cancer from 133 patients. Prognostic effects of low or high CCR7 and FOXP3 expression were evaluated by Cox regression and Kaplan-Meier analysis, as well as the correlation between CCR7 positive score and intratumoral FOXP3(+) cell number in a longitudinal assessment. The analysis showed that the high expression levels of CCR7 and FOXP3 were detected in 69.9% and 65.4% of cases, respectively. High CCR7 expression in gastric cancer cells was significantly associated with poor overall survival (OS) (P = 0.010) and lymph node metastasis (P = 0.009), and was an independent factor for worse OS (P = 0.023) by multivariate analysis. High numbers of intratumoral FOXP3(+) Tregs significantly correlated with shorter OS (P = 0.021) and lymph node metastasis (P = 0.024), and was also an independent factor for adverse OS (P = 0.035). Furthermore, there was a significantly positive correlation between CCR7 positive score and intratumoral FOXP3(+) cell number (r = 0.949, P<0.001). These results revealed that CCR7 expression in gastric cancer cells and intratumoral FOXP3(+) Tregs could be considered as a co-indicator of clinical prognosis of gastric cancer.

The aim of the present study was to investigate the prognostic value of tumor-infiltrated lymphocytes (TILs), especially the prognostic value of Foxp3+ regulatory T cells (Tregs), CD8+ CTLs and Tregs/CD8+ ratios in gastric cancer patients after R0 resection.

Hide Abstract
The determination of xanthine has considerable importance in clinical and food quality control. Therefore, in this present work, we developed a novel xanthine biosensor based on immobilization of xanthine oxidase (XnOx) by attractive materials layered double hydroxides (LDHs). Amperometric detection of xanthine was evaluated by holding the modified electrode at 0.55V (versus saturated calomel electrode (SCE)). Due to the special properties of LDHs, such as chemical inertia, mechanical and thermal stability, anionic exchange ability, high porosity and swelling properties, XnOx/LDHs-modified electrode exhibited a developed analytical performance. The biosensor provided a linear response to xanthine over a concentration range of 1 x 10(-6)M to 2 x 10(-4)M with a sensitivity of 220 mAM(-1)cm(-2) and a detection limit of 1x10(-7)M based on S/N=3. In addition, the immobilized XnOx layers have been characterized using atomic force microscopy under both air atmosphere and liquid environment, which exhibited the interesting swelling phenomenon of LDHs. The investigation of inhibition of XnOx by allopurinol was carried out using this XnOx/LDHs-modified electrode. The experimental results indicated that inhibitory effect could be achieved by allopurinol with a quasi-reversible competitive type.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
