A MODIFIED GOAL-DIRECTED PROTOCOL IMPROVES CLINICAL OUTCOMES IN INTENSIVE CARE UNIT PATIENTS WITH SEPTIC SHOCK: A RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL
ABSTRACT We evaluated whether a goal-directed protocol, without measurement of central venous oxygen saturation, would improve survival in medical intensive care unit (ICU) patients with septic… Expand
Control of swine pseudorabies in China: Opportunities and limitations.
Pseudorabies (PR), also known as Aujeszky's disease (AD), is caused by pseudorabies virus (PRV) or called suid herpesvirus 1 (SuHV-1). It is an economically significant viral disease of pigs and… Expand
Baicalin Inhibits TLR2/4 Signaling Pathway in Rat Brain Following Permanent Cerebral Ischemia
Recent work from our laboratory demonstrated that baicalin attenuates inflammatory reaction and cerebral ischemia injury in rats. Toll-like receptor 2 and 4 (TLR2/4) and the downstream nuclear… Expand

RATIONALE A proportion of patients with asthma present with chronic airflow obstruction (CAO). We hypothesized that this effect may result from increased activity of circulating fibroblast-like… Expand
Risk factors for the development of early-onset delirium and the subsequent clinical outcome in mechanically ventilated patients.
OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to investigate the risk factors of developing early-onset delirium in mechanically ventilated patients and determine the subsequent clinical outcomes. METHODS… Expand
