A prospective clinical trial was conducted to determine the cephalometric and occlusal changes following maxillary expansion and protraction. Twenty Southern Chinese patients (eight males and 12 females with a mean age of 8.4 +/- 1.8 years) with skeletal Class III malocclusions were treated consecutively with maxillary expansion and a protraction facemask.(More)
It is unclear whether a mother who is negative for hepatitis B virus surface antigen (HBsAg) but positive for hepatitis B virus (HBV) is at potential risk for mother-to-child transmission of HBV. This study, using a paired mother-teenager population, aimed to assess whether maternal HBsAg-negative HBV infection ((hn)HBI) is a significant source of child HBV(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the seasonal prevalence of genotype-IV hepatitis E virus (HEV) in swine herds in Eastern China and explore the phylogenetic relationship between swine HEV and human HEV in the situation that zoonotic features of HEV had been confirmed. METHODS From September 2007 to June 2008, a total of 1200 swine bile specimens were collected from(More)
Etiology of Class III malocclusion can be genetic or environmental. Proclination of mandibular incisors and retroclination of maxillary incisors can cause posturing of the mandible in an anterior position due to incisal interference, a condition called pseudo Class III malocclusion that can be misleading in evaluating a patient with skeletal Class III(More)
OBJECTIVE To understand phylogenetic characteristics of sporadic hepatitis E virus (HEV) in eastern China. METHODS Four hundred and thirteen sera were collected from sporadic hepatitis E cases in 14 second- or first-class hospitals in Eastern China from 2005 to 2008 and detected with a nested RT-PCR assay. Partial nucleotide sequences of the HEV isolates(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the prevalence and genotype of hepatitis E virus (HEV) among commercial swine population in Eastern and Southern China. METHODS Six hundred specimens of swine bile collected from 5 slaughterhouses in Eastern and Southern China from 2007 to 2009 were tested for HEV RNA using nested RT-PCR. PCR products were sequenced for phylogenetic(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the genotype and phylogenetic characteristics of hepatitis E virus (HEV) strains isolated from the human and swine in Anqing City. METHODS Twenty seven sera from sporadic hepatitis E patients and 400 commercial swine bile samples were collected in Anqing City. According to the collection time, the bile samples were equally divided(More)
