BACKGROUND Many studies have been conducted to explore the association between interleukin (IL)-1β C-511T polymorphism and risk of chronic periodontitis (CP) but with different or even contradictory results. A meta-analysis was performed to further explore their association. METHODS PubMed, Chinese National Knowledge Infrastructure, and EMBASE were(More)
Landsat-TM (Theme Mapper) and EOS (Earth Observing System)-MODIS (MODerate resolution Imaging Spectrora-diometer) Terra/Aqua images were used to monitor the macro-algae (Ulva prolifera) bloom since 2007 at the Yellow Sea and the East China Sea. At the turbid waters of Northern Jiangsu Shoal, there is strong spectral mixing behavior, and satellite images(More)
Neutrophils have been implicated as major contributors to tissue injury in inflammatory bowel disease. In this study, we have assessed the effects of an inhibitor of neutrophil activation and adherence, NPC-18915 (4-¿2-[2-(2-benzofuranyl)phenyl]-(E)-ethenyl¿benzoic acid sodium salt), in models of both acute and reactivated colitis. Acute colitis was induced(More)
Louvain rats were administered tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) via a continuous osmotic infusion pump. These rats were then immunized with native type II collagen (CII) to determine the effects of exogenous TNF-alpha on collagen-induced arthritis (CIA), an animal model of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). In this highly susceptible strain, 100% of(More)
BACKGROUND Many epidemiological studies have found a positive association between periodontal disease (PD) and risk of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), but this association is varied and even contradictory among studies. We performed a meta-analysis to ascertain the relationship between PD and COPD. METHODS PubMed and Embase database were(More)
Oxygen therapy (hyperoxia) is essential for the treatment of some neonatal critical care conditions. The lung is the primary target for the changes induced by hyperoxia. Secretory immunoglobulin A (SIgA), IgA and secretory component (SC) reflect the local immunity in the respiratory tract induced by hyperoxia. The enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay,(More)
Oxygen therapy is essential for the treatment of some neonatal critical care conditions but its extrapulmonary effects have not been adequately investigated. We therefore studied the effects of various oxygen concentrations on intestinal epithelial cell function. In order to assess the effects of hyperoxia on the intestinal immunological barrier, we studied(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical features, renal histopathology and therapeutic response to glucocorticoid and immunosuppressive agents in patients with glomerular disease associated with Takayasu arteritis (TA). METHODS Patients with TA and renal biopsy-confirmed glomerular disease were investigated retrospectively. None of them had renal artery(More)
OBJECTIVE To carry out a nationwide epidemiologic survey on the neonates in urban hospitals with an attempt to understand the disease spectrum and treatment outcomes of hospitalized neonates in China. METHODS The clinical data of 43,289 hospitalized neonates from 86 hospitals in 47 Chinese cities (22 provinces) between January 1, 2005 and December 31,(More)
AIM To investigate the change in intestinal dendritic cell (DC) number in fulminant hepatic failure (FHF). METHODS An animal model of FHF was created. Intestinal CD11b/c was detected by immunohistochemistry and Western blot. Quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was used to detect intestinal integrin-α mRNA expression. Intestinal CD83,(More)
