Nineteen patients with normal renin idiopathic hypertension were arbitrarily classified as salt-sensitive or salt-resistant depending on whether their mean arterial pressure did or did not increase by 8% or more when sodium intake was increased. The responses of the two subsets and of five normal subjects to sodium intakes of 9, 109, and 249 mEq/day given(More)
PURPOSE We studied the mechanisms by which immunosuppressants result, in dyslipidemia among human kidney transplant recipients. METHODS Seventy-five living donor kidney transplant recipients were enrolled in our study with informed consent and the approval of out Institutional Ethics Committee. Each donor-recipient pair were relatives, there were no(More)
BACKGROUND Posttransplantation diabetes mellitus (PTDM) is a common metabolic complication in renal transplant recipients. Some studies have revealed predisposing or protective HLA genes for PTDM. OBJECTIVE To describe the characteristics of PTDM in patients in the south of China. METHODS The present study included 195 living-donor kidney transplant(More)
UNLABELLED Bone loss is a common complication among renal transplant patients. Some studies have shown that alendronate may be effective to treat bone loss in these patients. In this study, we have reported our experience with administration of alendronate to treat bone loss in renal transplanted patients. METHODS The 46 kidney transplant recipients with(More)
BACKGROUND There is a paucity of data regarding neurologic function following nerve injury. Our objective was the long-term evaluation of motor function following intraneural injection of ropivacaine in rats using the sciatic function index (SFI), derived from walking track analysis. METHODS Rats were randomly assigned to one of four groups of 13 animals(More)
BACKGROUND Activation of the complement system is the leading mechanism that causes antibody-mediated acute rejection and hyperacute rejection after xenotransplantation. The major cause of acute rejection in allogeneic transplantation is the T cell-mediated specific immune response. We studied the effects of complement on acute rejection after cardiac(More)
Image segmentation plays a crucial role in many medical imaging applications by extracting the regions of interest. Accurate segmentation of medical images is a key step in the use of computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) systems to improve the sensitivity and specificity of lesion detection. In this paper, segmentation problems in medical imaging modalities(More)
Carbon nanotubes is a new one-dimension carbon material. With novel structural, electronic and mechanical properties, carbon nanotubes constitute' an important form of carbon that may find applications in many fields. Raman scattering is an important measurement method for the carbon nanotubes, especially for single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs). The tube(More)
These authors report on validating their choice of disposable clamps in arterial and venous microsurgery in a comparative and experimental study using the scanning electron microscope. This appears to be the first evaluation of venous endothelial clamping lesions. Early intimal clamping lesions were studied using three different clamps and two protocols in(More)
A bipartite begomovirus isolate GD was isolated from Lycianthes biflora plants showing yellow mosaic symptoms in Nanxiong, Guangdong Province, China. The apparently full-length DNA-A and DNA-B viral components were cloned after enrichment of circular DNA by rolling circle amplification, restriction digestion, cloning, and DNA sequencing. The DNA-A component(More)
