To evaluate the effectiveness of a combined intervention on knowledge, attitude, and practice (KAP) of people with epilepsy and their families in rural areas of China, random samples of people with epilepsy and their family members from the intervention populations completed questionnaires prior to the intervention (2002, N=975) and 2 years later (N=950).(More)
A series novel of N-(2-hydroxyethyl)amide derivatives was synthesized and screened for their anticonvulsant activities by the maximal electroshock (MES) test, and their neurotoxicity was evaluated by the rotarod test (Tox). The maximal electroshock test showed that N-(2-hydroxyethyl)decanamide 1g, N-(2-hydroxyethyl)palmitamide 1l, and(More)
The purified total sterols and β-sitosterol extracted from Sargassum horneri were evaluated for their antidepressant-like activity using the forced swim test (FST) and tail suspension test (TST) in mice. Total sterols and β-sitosterol significantly reduced the immobility time in the FST and TST. Total sterols were administered orally for 7 days at doses of(More)
Genetic variants found in DNA repair genes (ERCC1, rs3212986; ERCC2, rs13181; ERCC4, rs1800067; ERCC5, rs17655; XRCC1, rs1799782, rs25487, rs25489; XRCC3, rs861539) have been reported to have an ambivalent association with the development of glioma. In the present study, a meta-analysis was conducted to confirm the relationship, taking heterogeneity of(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most common subtype of liver malignancy, and it is characterized by poor prognosis because of cancer stem cell (CSC)-mediated high postsurgical recurrence rates. Thus, targeting CSCs, or HCC cells with CSC-like properties, is an effective strategy for HCC therapy. Here, using long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) microarray(More)
In this study, 14 2′-hydroxy-4′,6′-diisoprenyloxychalcone compounds were synthesized and their antidepressant activities were evaluated using the forced swimming test. The pharmacological results showed that six compounds significantly reduced immobility times during the forced swimming test at a dose of 10 mg/kg, indicative of antidepressant activity.(More)
A new quinoline derivative, QUAN-0806 (7-hexyloxy-5-phenyl-1,2,4-triazolo[4,3-alpha]quinoline) was tested for anticonvulsant activity using the maximal electroshock seizure (MES) and the rotarod neurotoxicity (Tox) tests in mice. The MES test showed that QUAN-0806 exhibited higher activity (ED50 = 6.5 mg/kg) and lower toxicity (TD50 = 228.2 mg/kg),(More)
We investigate the feasibility of determining the pairwise velocity dispersion (PVD) for Lyman Break Galaxies(LBGs), and of using this quantity as a dis-criminator among theoretical models. We find that different schemes of galaxy formation lead to significant changes of the PVD. We propose a simple phe-nomenological model for the formation of Lyman break(More)
