BACKGROUND Sepsis is a leading cause of death in the intensive care units. The late inflammatory cytokine, high-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1), plays a critical role in sepsis. In the present study, we investigated the association between the serum HMGB1 levels and the severity of organ injury in the lipopolysaccharide-induced sepsis in rats. METHODS To(More)
We have investigated the expression and role of the 58-kDa micro-spherule protein (MSP58) in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Immunohistochemistry was performed in 252 samples from patients with HCC to detect the expression level of MSP58. Results indicated that the expression level of MSP58 in the cancer samples was significantly higher than that in(More)
In the central nervous system (CNS), endomorphin 1 (EM1)- and endomorphin 2 (EM2)-containing neuronal cell bodies have been found in the nucleus tractus sollitarii (NTS) and the hypothalamus, and EMergic fibers and terminals are distributed widely in many regions of the CNS, including the periaqueductal gray (PAG). The aim of the present study was to(More)
Fuzzy relational classifier (FRC) is the recently proposed two-step nonlinear classifiers, which effectively integrates the formed clusters and the given classes. However, FRC can not copy with the influence of  those irrelevant or redundant features. To effectively filter out those irrelevant features and  preserve the internal(More)
BACKGROUND Vascular hyporeactivity, which occurs in the terminal stage of hemorrhagic shock, is believed to be critical for treating hemorrhagic shock. The present study was designed to examine whether the CB1 cannabinoid receptor (CB1R) was involved in the development of vascular hyporeactivity in rats suffering from hemorrhagic shock. METHODS Sixteen(More)
Hepatobiliary surgery is considered to be technically challenging because of complex intrahepatic and perihilar anatomical structures and variations.Nowadays, three-dimensional imaging technique plays an important role in the time of precise liver surgery.Three-dimensional images depict the spatial location of tumor, and the course, confluence pattern and(More)
