To examine the effects of Cerebrolysin on the treatment of diabetic peripheral neuropathy, we first established a mouse model of type 2 diabetes mellitus by administering a high-glucose, high-fat diet and a single intraperitoneal injection of streptozotocin. Mice defined as diabetic in this model were then treated with 1.80, 5.39 or 8.98 mL/kg of(More)
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder, with multiple genetic and environmental risk factors. The interplay between genetic and environmental factors has become the subject of intensified research in the last several years. Vitamin D deficiency has recently been proposed as a possible environmental risk factor for ASD.(More)
Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are a group of neuro-developmental disorders in early childhood which are defined by social difficulties, communication deficits and repetitive or restrictive interests and behaviours. The etiology of ASD remains poorly understood. Much research has shown that children with ASD suffer from immunological dysfunction. This(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels in children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and to explore the relationship between vitamin D level and ASD. METHODS Serum levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels were determined by the HPLC-MS/MS method in 117 children with newly diagnosed ASD and 109 healthy controls. Vitamin D status were(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the therapeutic effects of infra-low-frequency transcranial magnetic stimulation in children with spastic cerebral palsy. METHODS Seventy-five children with spastic cerebral palsy were randomly divided into two groups: control (n=33) and treatment groups (n=42). The treatment group accepted infra-low-frequency transcranial magnetic(More)
AIMS To test the genetic association of NR3C1 gene which encodes the glucocorticoid receptor with infantile spasms (IS). MAIN METHODS Nine single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within the NR3C1 gene were genotyped in a sample set of 128 cases and 131 controls. Association analysis was performed on the genotyped data. KEY FINDINGS Two SNPs, rs10482672(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the natural killer (NK) cell phenotype and function in chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) patients and to study the effects of entecavir therapy (10 mg/day, p.o.) on these responses. Peripheral blood NK cells were collected from 18 chronic HBV patients and 14 healthy controls. The effect of entecavir therapy on(More)
OBJECTIVE Cerebral palsy (CP) is a permanent disorder in the development of movement and posture in the developing infant brain and is one of the major disabilities that result from extremely preterm birth. Early identification of possible neurodevelopmental injury offers the opportunity to deliver intervention at a very early age and thus prevent severe(More)
