OBJECTIVE The goal of our study was to investigate whether DRD4 gene DNA methylation played an important role in the susceptibility of Han Chinese SCZ. METHODS Using the bisulphite pyrosequencing technology, DNA methylation levels of 6 CpG dinucleotides in DRD4 CpG island were measured among 30 paranoid SCZ patients, 30 undifferentiated SCZ patients, and(More)
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) has emerged as the major pathogen of liver disease worldwide. The mechanisms of HCV infection and interaction with a host are poorly understood. What exactly is required for efficient control of HCV infection is largely unknown. Standard treatment combining interferon-alpha (IFN-alpha) and ribavirine is effective in about 50% of the(More)
The Yellow River (YR) supplies a large amount of nutrients and fresh water to the northern Chinese marginal seas, and greatly influences the ecosystem and current patterns. The relocation of the YR outlet from the southern Yellow Sea (YS) to the Bohai Sea in 1855 was demonstrated using northern East China Sea (ECS) sediment characteristics. Both isotopic(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the feasibility and effectiveness of a modified cross-lip flap with lip artery anatomosis so as to shorten inward time. METHODS Between August 2010 and January 2014, 11 patients underwent cross-lip flap surgery with lip artery anatomosis to repair upper lip defects. There were 9 males and 2 females with an average age of 62 years(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the method of implant coverage with local soft tissue in immediate implant-based breast reconstruction and to evaluate the early effectiveness. METHODS Between April 2014 and August 2015, 11 patients with breast cancer underwent immediate breast reconstruction with implants after mastectomy, and the clinical data were reviewed(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the utility of indocyanine green angiography in flap reconstructive surgery and possibility of decrease the complications. METHODS Indocyanine green angiography was performed on 14 patients undergoing flap reconstructive surgery between February and December 2014 to evaluate the blood perfusion of the flap and to adjust the(More)
