OBJECTIVE To summarize the characteristics of clinical features, laboratory tests, treatments and outcomes of childhood systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). METHODS A retrospective study was conducted for 130 cases of first-confirmed childhood SLE hospitalized from 2001 to 2008. Their clinical data of initial manifestations, system involvements, laboratory(More)
AIM To investigate the expression and clinical significance of ATP-binding cassette transporter 1 (ABCA1) in pregnant women with preeclampsia (PE). METHODS 52 pregnant women with PE who were admitted for delivery were enrolled in the study, while 30 normal pregnant inpatients were chosen as controls. Blood lipid and serum ABCA1 concentrations were assayed(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the sonodynamically induced antitumor effect of a novel sonosensitizer (DVDMS) in mice bearing sarcoma 180 solid tumors. METHODS In order to determine the optimum timing of ultrasound exposure after administration of DVDMS, a three-dimensional optical imaging system (IVIS spectrum) was used to observe the(More)
The nuclear male sterility (NMS) trait is a useful tool for sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) breeding and genetic programs. Previously, we induced NMS mutants in cultivated line HA 89. The mutants possessed single recessive genes ms 6, ms 7, and ms 8, respectively, in NMS HA 89-872, NMS HA 89-552, and NMS HA 89-747. Bulked segregant analysis based on the(More)
We investigated the characteristics of Chinese SLE patients by analyzing the association between specific autoantibodies and clinical manifestations of 2104 SLE patients from registry data of CSTAR cohort. Significant (P<0.05) associations were found between anti-Sm antibody, anti-rRNP antibody, and malar rash; between anti-RNP antibody, anti-SSA antibody,(More)
Sono-Photodynamic therapy (SPDT), a new modality for cancer treatment, is aimed at enhancing anticancer effects by the combination of sonodynamic therapy (SDT) and photodynamic therapy (PDT). In this study, we investigated the antitumor effect and possible mechanisms of Chlorin e6 (Ce6) mediated SPDT (Ce6-SPDT) on breast cancer both in vitro and in vivo.(More)
Both in vitro and in vivo hairy root transformation systems could not replace whole plant transformation for promoter analysis of root-specific and low-P induced genes in soybean. An efficient genetic transformation system is crucial for promoter analysis in plants. Agrobacterium-mediated transformation is the most popular method to produce transgenic hairy(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the cause of early death (death within 3-12 months after hemodialysis) and the related influencing factors patients undergoing maintenance hemodialysis (MHD) as to provide a scientific basis for the prevention of early death. METHODS A retrospective matched controlled study was conducted. Fifty-one patients who underwent MHD from(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to estimate the influence of socioeconomic and geographical variables on disease phenotype and activity of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) in a Chinese population. METHODS Data on 904 therapy-naïve SLE patients from the Chinese SLE Treatment and Research Group (CSTAR), which is a nation-wide database of SLE patients, were(More)
Themechanism of binding of the antivirus drug, brevifolin carboxylic acid (BCA) with bovine serum albumin (BSA) was investigated by steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence, circular dichroism (CD), Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) and Raman spectroscopy under pseudo-physiological conditions for the first time. A strong fluorescence quenching was(More)
