Virus infection of plants may induce a variety of disease symptoms. However, little is known about the molecular mechanism of systemic symptom development in infected plants. Here we performed the first next-generation sequencing study to identify gene expression changes associated with disease development in tobacco plants (Nicotiana tabacum cv. Xanthi nc)(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of calcitriol in the prevention and treatment of glucocorticoid-induced osteoporosis. METHODS 66 patients treated with glucocorticoids (GC) for primary nephrotic syndrome (NS) were randomly assigned to 3 groups. Groups were designated as follows: calcitriol alone (n = 22), calcitriol plus calcium carbonate (n(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the aesthetic outcome after application of rectangle periosteous flap to cover corrugator. METHODS On the basis of regular rhytidectomy, a inter-eyebrow periosteous flap is applied to cover the fascia flap of corrugator by means of turnover. This manipulation helps to separate the skin from the muscle and prevent the re-adherence(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical efficacy and safety of sequential treatment with alprostadil and beraprost sodium for chronic renal failure caused by chronic glomerulonephritis. METHODS Sixty-three patients with chronic renal failure due to chronic glomerulonephritis, after receiving a 2-week-long conventional treatment, were randomly divided into(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the expressions of urokinase-type plasminogen activator (uPA) and its receptor (uPAR) in vulvar tissues and elucidate the patterns. METHODS Thirty cases of vulvar neoplasms, 30 vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia (VIN) and 30 cases of normal epithelial tissue were harvested. And the expressions of uPA and uPAR in paraffin-embedded(More)
OBJECTIVE To create a new method of pulmonary artery cannulation during operation for right ventricular assistance, for which minimally invasive decannulation can be done after operation. METHODS A specially-made disassemblable composite graft consisting of a woven dacron tube and a bovine pericardial tube (composite graft) was anastomosed to the(More)
