Enterovirus 71 (EV71) is one of the major causative agents of hand, foot and mouth disease. Recently, several EV71 inactivated vaccine candidates have been development in mainland China. To compare the antigenicity and genetic characteristics of different candidate vaccine strains for EV71, the genomes of 11 EV71 strains were sequenced. The cross-protection(More)
BACKGROUND Enterovirus 71 (EV71) is the major causative agent of hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD). Three inactivated EV71 whole-virus vaccines of different strains developed by different manufacturers in mainland China have recently entered clinical trials. Although several studies on these vaccines have been published, a study directly comparing the(More)
BACKGROUND Enterovirus 71 (EV71) outbreaks are a socioeconomic burden, especially in the western Pacific region. Results of phase 1 clinical trials suggest an EV71 vaccine has a clinically acceptable safety profile and immunogenicity. We aimed to assess the best possible dose and formulation, immunogenicity, and safety profile of this EV71 vaccine in(More)
Whole-cell pertussis vaccine was introduced in China in the early 1960s. We used standard typing methods to compare 96 Bordetella pertussis isolates collected before and after introduction of vaccination, during 1953-2005. The following vaccine-type alleles of the pertussis toxin (ptx) gene were characteristic for all prevaccination strains: ptxA2, ptxA3,(More)
To characterize the human humoral immune response against enterovirus 71 (EV71) infection and map human epitopes on the viral capsid proteins. A series of 256 peptides spanning the capsid proteins (VP1, VP2, VP3) of BJ08 strain (genomic C4) were synthesized. An indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was carried out to detect anti-EV71 IgM and(More)
OBJECTIVE To measure the intra-fraction displacements of the mediastinal metastatic lymph nodes by using four-dimensional CT (4D-CT) in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-four patients with NSCLC, who were to be treated by using three dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3D-CRT), underwent a 4D-CT simulation during free(More)
The aim of the present study was to analyse clinical data obtained from lung cancer patients, including the initial clinical symptoms upon diagnosis, duration of patient delay in presenting to a doctor, lung cancer stage, treatment strategy and prognosis. A retrospective analysis was conducted of the clinical features of 1,168 lung cancer patients who were(More)
BACKGROUND To determine the optimal threshold of 18 F-fluorodexyglucose (18 F-FDG) positron emission tomography CT (PET/CT) images that generates the best volumetric match to internal gross target volume (IGTV) based on four-dimensional CT (4DCT) images. METHODS Twenty patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) underwent enhanced three-dimensional(More)
