Oligodendrocyte precursor cells (OPCs) are the predominant oligodendrocyte-lineage stage in the cerebral hemispheres of neonatal rat. Prior studies have shown that OPCs are highly vulnerable to hypoxic-ischemic injury, yet the mechanisms are not well understood. P2X(7) receptor (P2X(7)R) is an ATP-gated ion channel that has unusual properties and plays very(More)
BACKGROUND Chinese primary care settings have a heavy patient load, shortage of physicians, limited medical resources and low medical literacy, making it difficult to screen for developmental disorders in infants. The Infant Neurological International Battery (INFANIB) for the assessment of neuromotor developmental disorders in infants aged 0 ~ 18 months is(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the efficacy of 2-month course of sleeping position correction in the treatment of positional plagiocephaly in infants aged <8 months. METHODS A total of 73 infants with positional plagiocephaly between January 2015 and June 2016 were divided into treatment group (n=46) and control group (n=27) according to parents' wishes.

OBJECTIVE To observe the ability of triple helix-forming oligonucleotides (TFO) modified with manganese porphyrin to combine with and cleave HBV DNA fractions. METHODS The ends of TFO were modified with manganese porphyrin and acridine; At 37 degrees C and pH 7.4 condition in vitro, TFO modified with manganese porphyrin and acridine were bound with 32P(More)
Positional plagiocephaly (PP) is the most common subtype of asymmetric deformity in the infant skull. Cumulative evidence has demonstrated that PP is associated with abnormal neuromotor development; however, neurological assessment scores of infants with PP have not been well established, and PP has not attracted sufficient attention in China. This study(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish the Chinese Pediatric Evaluation of Disability Inventory (PEDI) norms in Chongqing, China. METHODS PEDI (English version) was translated into Chinese and proof read by back-translation. A total of 1 140 children stratified by age were randomly selected from Chongqing and evaluated by the Chinese version of the PEDI. The obtained(More)
