Reduction of secondary transmission of SARS-CoV-2 in households by face mask use, disinfection and social distancing: a cohort study in Beijing, China
TLDR
The study confirms the highest risk of transmission prior to symptom onset, and provides the first evidence of the effectiveness of mask use, disinfection and social distancing in preventing COVID-19, and found evidence of faecal transmission. Expand
The sea cucumber genome provides insights into morphological evolution and visceral regeneration
TLDR
A complete genome sequence of an economically important sea cucumber, A. japonicus, generated using Illumina and PacBio platforms is presented to provide a useful framework for future research into biological processes and evolution in deuterostomes, including remarkable regenerative abilities that could have medical applications. Expand
Combination of Radiological and Gray Level Co-occurrence Matrix Textural Features Used to Distinguish Solitary Pulmonary Nodules by Computed Tomography
TLDR
The evaluation results showed that the method of selecting radiological and textural features appears to yield more effective in the distinction of malignant from benign solitary pulmonary nodules by computed tomography. Expand
Increased norovirus activity was associated with a novel norovirus GII.17 variant in Beijing, China during winter 2014–2015
TLDR
The epidemiological patterns and genetic characteristics of NoV in the sporadic cases and outbreaks of acute gastroenteritis in Beijing, China during winter 2014–2015 were examined to identify a novel GII.17 strain that caused the majority of AGE outbreaks in China and Japan. Expand
Differential Expression of miRNAs in the Respiratory Tree of the Sea Cucumber Apostichopus japonicus Under Hypoxia Stress
TLDR
Investigation of alterations in miRNA expression in the sea cucumber under different levels of dissolved oxygen suggested that these miRNAs are important in redox, transport, transcription, and hydrolysis under hypoxia stress. Expand
Prevalence and genotypes of group A rotavirus among outpatient children under five years old with diarrhea in Beijing, China, 2011–2016
TLDR
Targeted measures such as immunization with effective rotavirus vaccines should be carried out to reduce the morbidity and mortality due to rotav virus, which accounted for more than one fifth of childhood diarrhea in Beijing during the study period. Expand
Impact of hypoxia stress on the physiological responses of sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus: respiration, digestion, immunity and oxidative damage
TLDR
The physiological responses of Apostichopus japonicus to oxygen deficiency was illustrated, including induced oxidative response and immune defense and changed digestive enzymes activities, which could help to develop a better understanding of the responsive mechanism of sea cucumber under hypoxia stress. Expand
Metabolome responses of the sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus to multiple environmental stresses: Heat and hypoxia.
TLDR
Combined environmental stressors have a more extensive impact on the metabolites of the respiratory tree in sea cucumbers than single stress, which would facilitate further development of the sea cucumber as an echinoderm model to study mechanisms of response to adverse environments, and help advance knowledge of the adaptation of marine organisms to global climate change. Expand
The cost-effectiveness analysis of JinQi Jiangtang tablets for the treatment on prediabetes: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter design
TLDR
A randomized controlled trial that was assessed with pharmacoeconomic methods and used the cost-effectiveness analysis to discuss the economic advantage of the JQJT tablets reduced the incidence of diabetes mellitus and enhanced reversion rate. Expand
Detection of yellow fever virus genomes from four imported cases in China.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis was performed and the results showed that these four viruses were highly homologous with Angola 71 strains, thus confirming the effectiveness of the YFV-17D vaccine (X03700). Expand
