Guan-Xin-Er-Hao (GXEH) is a Chinese medicine formula for treating ischemic heart diseases (IHD) and has a favorable effect. Our aim was to examine whether or not acute oral GXEH could protect the heart against myocardial infarction and apoptosis in acute myocardial ischemic rats. If so, we would explain the antioxidative mechanism involved. The left(More)
We studied a Chinese family and revealed 5.4% and 3.2% fetal hemoglobin (HbF) with advantageously Agamma type in the mother and the daughter, respectively, using alkali denaturation assay and urea-Triton-acrylamide gel electrophoresis and high-performance liquid chromatography. The father's HbF was less than 0.5%. Large deletion was not observed within the(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of this paper was to evaluate the complications of patients with benign parotid disease treated by modified parotidectomy through conserving the sub-superficial musculoaponeurotic system (sub-SMAS), great auricular nerve (GAN), and reconstruction by sternocleidomastoid flap (SF). Between 1997 and 2001, 226 patients with benign parotid(More)
Although Rhodiola sacra aqueous extract (RSAE) has been used in many studies as an antioxidant, its effects on semen characteristics and its antioxidant properties during cryopreservation of boar sperm have never been evaluated. Semen was collected from five Duroc boars (2-4-year-old) twice weekly and frozen-thawed in extender with RSEA. Motion(More)
BACKGROUND Previous trials have shown the potential of 10 mg of mifepristone in emergency contraception. The aim of this trial was to investigate whether 10 mg of mifepristone has the same efficacy as 25 mg. METHODS This double-blind, randomized trial was carried out in 10 family planning institutes and hospitals in China. Women who met recruitment(More)
In cultured vascular smooth muscle cells(VSMCs) of SD rat, it was found that 1 x 10(-7) - 1 x 10(-5) kg/L lipopolysaccharide(LPS) markedly stimulated proliferation and DNA synthesis of VSMCs in a dose dependent manner (P<0.05).A time-dependent marked inhibition in proliferation, DNA synthesis and viability of VSMCs (P<0.01)could be obtained by 5 x 10(-4) -(More)
An efficient and simple method for removing known, abundant cDNA species from the cDNA pool of highly differentiated cells is reported. The method involves preparation of sscDNA, followed by dscDNA-synthesis of known, abundant cDNA species led by specific primers and removal of the synthesized dscDNA with hydroxyapatite. By using this method, the globin(More)
The purpose of this research was to evaluate the clinical outcome and factors influencing postoperative intracavity brachytherapy in treating oral squamous cell carcinoma. As a part of their primary treatment, 108 patients received postoperative intracavity brachytherapy only and 85 patients received postoperative intracavity brachytherapy with external(More)
BACKGROUND Intimal hyperplasia plays an important role in vein graft stenosis. Inflammatory injury, especially nuclear factor kappaB (NF-κB) gene activation, is highly involved in stenosis progression. We examined whether neointimal hyperplasia and vein graft stenosis could be inhibited by silencing the NF-κB gene with small interference RNA (siRNA). (More)
