UNLABELLED BACJGROUND: the red cell distribution width (RDW) in ICU patients has never been investigated. METHODS a total of 602 consecutive patients were prospectively enrolled. We collected each patient's base-line characteristics including the Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation II (APACHE-II) score, RDW, and C-reactive protein (CRP). The(More)
BACKGROUND Neutrophil CD64 has been shown to be a promising biomarker for bacterial infection and sepsis identification. However, the prognostic value of CD64 in predicting the likelihood of survival for patients in intensive care unit (ICU) is unclear. METHODS A total of 797 patients in the ICU of Xin-Hua Hospital, Shanghai, China were enrolled. We(More)
INTRODUCTION Cystatin C (Cysc) could be affected by thyroid function both in vivo and in vitro and thereby may have limited ability to reflect renal function. We aimed to assess the association between Cysc and thyroid hormones as well as the effect of thyroid function on the diagnostic accuracy of Cysc to detect acute kidney injury (AKI). METHODS A total(More)
The Homo sapiens charged multivesicular body protein 5 (CHMP5) is a member of the multivesicular body, which serves as an anti-apoptotic protein and is thought to participate in leukemogenesis. In this study, a short-hairpin RNA-based RNA interference approach was used to inhibit the expression of CHMP5 in the leukemic cell line U937. After CHMP5 was(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between the noggin rs227731 polymorphism on chromosome 17q22 and risk of nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without palate (NSCL/P). METHODS Three online databases were searched, including Embase, PubMed, and Chinese National Knowledge Infrastructure. The strength of the associations was(More)
Networks can be used to describe the interconnections among individuals, which play an important role in the spread of disease. Although the small-world effect has been found to have a significant impact on epidemics in single networks, the small-world effect on epidemics in interconnected networks has rarely been considered. Here, we study the(More)
Community nurses play a crucial role in early detection and timely diagnosis of dementia. However, they are usually not prepared for the role through their formal education, particularly in low- and middle-income countries due to undeveloped nursing curriculum in dementia care. This paper describes a two-arm cluster-randomized controlled trial to improve(More)
INTRODUCTION Although nonthyroidal illness syndrome is considered to be associated with adverse outcome in ICU patients, the performance of thyroid hormone levels in predicting clinical outcome in ICU patients is unimpressive. This study was conducted to assess the prognostic value of the complete thyroid indicators (free triiodothyronine (FT3), total(More)
INTRODUCTION The performance of N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) and C-reactive protein (CRP) to predict clinical outcomes in ICU patients is unimpressive. We aimed to assess the prognostic value of NT-proBNP, CRP or the combination of both in unselected medical ICU patients. METHODS A total of 576 consecutive patients were screened(More)
We conducted a prospective, observational study to assess the prognostic value of hemostasis-related parameters in unselected ICU patients. We collected baseline characteristics from 497 consecutive unselected medical and trauma patients during their ICU stay. Each hemostasis-related parameter was analyzed alone or combined with APACHE II scores for any(More)
