AIM To investigate the protective effects of magnolol on sepsis-induced inflammation and intestinal dysmotility. METHODS Sepsis was induced by a single intraperitoneal injection of lipopolysaccharide (LPS). Male Wistar rats were randomly assigned to one of three treatment groups: magnolol prior to LPS injection (LPS/Mag group); vehicle prior to LPS(More)
AIM To compare and analyze the effects of obesity and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) on the incidence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in Chinese subjects. METHODS In 2008, a population of 4847 subjects was randomly sampled from 17 medical units for enrollment in this cohort study. Baseline information was obtained via a questionnaire on(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of Tongfu granules and its constituents on barrier function of small intestine in rats with sepsis. METHODS The male rats were divided into model group, Tongfu granules group, Rhubarb group and Magnoliae cortex group by random digits table, normal rats as control group. Intraperitoneal injection of lipopolysaccharide(More)
Epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) is the most common gynecologic malignancy. To identify the micro-ribonucleic acids (miRNAs) expression profile in EOC tissues that may serve as a novel diagnostic biomarker for EOC detection, the expression of 1722 miRNAs from 15 normal ovarian tissue samples and 48 ovarian cancer samples was profiled by using a quantitative(More)
Bis-dipolar emissive oligoarylfluorenes, OF(2)Ar-NPhs(2), bearing an electron affinitive core, 9,9-dibutylfluorene, as conjugated bridges and diphenylamino as endcaps, show great potential for application in organic light-emitting diodes. The various electron affinitive central aryl cores that include thiophene S,S'-dioxide, dibenzothiophene S,S'-dioxide,(More)
OBJECTIVE Platelet hyper-reactivity is one of the most important causes of accelerated atherosclerosis and increased risk of thrombotic vascular events associated with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). This study aimed to investigate the effects of different add-on anti-diabetic therapies on platelet function in T2DM patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS A(More)
The molecular equilibrium structures, electronic structures, and one- and two-photon absorption (TPA) properties of C2v (Zn(II), Fe(II) and Cu(I)) dipolar and D2d (Zn(II) and Cu(I)) and D3 (Zn(II)) octupolar metal complexes featuring different functionalized bipyridyl ligands have been studied by the ZINDO-SOS method. The calculated results show that one-(More)
The present study focuses on a series of carbazole derivatives, which are being investigated as potential two-photon fluorescent probes (TFP) for DNA detection and two-photon bioimaging. The geometric structures, electronic structures, and the one-photon (OPA) and two-photon (TPA) absorption properties of 3,6-bis(1-methyl-4-vinylpyridinium) carbazole (BMVC)(More)
The equilibrium geometries, electronic structures, one-photon absorption (OPA) and two-photon absorption (TPA) properties of starburst 4-(dicyanomethylene)-2-methyl-6-[p-(dimethylamino)styryl]-4H-pyran (DCM) derivatives have been studied by using density functional theory (DFT) and Zerner's intermediate neglect of differential overlap (ZINDO) program.(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore treatments of severe post-kidney-transplant lung infection by integrative Chinese and Western medicine (ICWM), in order to elevate the curing rate as well as to lower the death rate. METHODS Based on conventional ways of Western medical treatments of 18 cases of severe post-kidney-transplant lung infection, such as putting the(More)
