Lidocaine, a common local anesthetic drug, has anti-inflammatory effects. It has demonstrated a protective effect in mice from septic peritonitis. However, it is unknown whether lidocaine has effects on high mobility group box 1 (HMGB1), a key mediator of inflammation. In this study, we investigated the effect of lidocaine treatment on serum HMGB1 level and(More)
AIM To test whether carbachol can influence endothelial barrier dysfunction induced by tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α and whether the alpha 7 nicotinic receptor can mediate this process. METHODS Rat cardiac microvascular endothelial cells were exposed to carbachol followed by TNF-α treatment in the presence or the absence of α-bungarotoxin (an antagonist(More)
Chronic paradoxical sleep deprivation (CSD) can induce dramatic physiological and neurofunctional changes in rats, including decreased body weight, reduced learning and memory, and declined locomotor function. SKF38393, a dopamine D1 receptor agonist, can reverse the above damages. However, the mechanism of CSD syndrome and reversal role of SKF38393 remains(More)
The prefrontal cortex (PFC) mediates cognitive function that is sensitive to disruption by sleep loss, and molecular mechanisms regulating neural dysfunction induced by chronic sleep restriction (CSR), particularly in the PFC, have yet to be completely understood. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of chronic REM sleep restriction(More)
Nylon 6 electrospun nanofibers mat was prepared via electrospinning for the removal of three estrogens, namely, diethylstilbestrol (DES), dienestrol (DS), and hexestrol (HEX) from aqueous solution. Static adsorption as well as the dynamic adsorption was evaluated by means of batch and dynamic disk flow mode, respectively. The kinetic study indicated that(More)
— This paper describes a new Hough transform (HT) algorithm for multi-objective detection. The core principle of HT—voting principle, which needs to find the maximal voting rate, makes HT impossible to detect many targets from single image synchronously. An improved HT algorithm based on clustering is presented. When the number of targets in the image is(More)
