AIM To evaluate hepatic reserve function by investigating the change of functional hepatic flow and total hepatic flow in cirrhotic patients with portal hypertension. METHODS HPLC method was employed for the determination of concentration of D-sorbitol in human plasma and urine. The functional hepatic flow (FHF) and total hepatic flow (THF) were(More)
AIM To investigate the intestinal barrier function damage induced by trauma and infection in rats. METHODS Experimental models of surgical trauma and infection were established in rats. Adult Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into 4 groups: control group (n = 8), EN group (n = 10), PN group (n = 9) and Sep group (n = 8). The rats in PN and Sep groups were(More)
BACKGROUND Damage to the gut barrier often occurs during critical illnesses. In such cases, it is very important to alleviate impairment of the intestinal barrier and protect intestinal barrier function. This study investigated the protective effect of growth hormone on intestinal barrier function in rats under stress. METHODS This study consisted of(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the potential role of serum citrulline level in evaluating the intestinal absorptive area and capacity in patients with short bowel syndrome (SBS). METHODS Serum citrulline concentration was determined using high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) in SBS patients (n=22) and healthy controls (n=33). In SBS patients, the(More)
Biopsy specimens of normal unexposed buttock skin were taken from 71 patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) for lupus band test (LBT). Correlation of positive incidence, fluorescent intensity, protein classes and numbers of LBT with SLE activity including active nephropathy were studied. Positive LBT results are associated with SLE disease(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the relationship between CD4 count and other blood indices and to explore the prediction of total lymphocyte count (TLC) for CD4 count in HIV-infected patients. METHODS Cross-sectional study was performed for the prediction of TLC and other indices for CD4 count, and historical cohort study was performed for the TLC changes as a(More)
Objective: To investigate the inducing effect and mechanism of semimature dendritic cell (smDCs) on transplantation tolerance of hepatocytes differentiated from mouse embryonic stem cells (ESCs), and to study the connections between smDCs and regulatory dendritic cells (regDCs). Methods: ESCs of 129 mouse labelled green fluorescent protein (GFP) were(More)
