To estimate the prevalence of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) drug resistance (DR) in a population of men who have sex with men (MSM) from Henan Province of China and to identify the DR-associated HIV-1 mutations in these MSM. The HIV-positive status of the MSM subjects in this study was confirmed using ELISA and Western blotting. The MSM subjects were(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE Sep15 is a selenium-containing protein identified in 1998. This protein may be involved in cancer etiology and it may have redox function. The objective of this study was to investigate the relationship between the redox function of Sep15 and tumor development. METHODS The full-length DNA sequence of Sep15 was obtained by RT-PCR and(More)
A new inverse halftoning algorithm based on reversible data hiding techniques for halftone images is proposed in this paper. The proposed scheme has the advantages of two commonly used methods, the lookup table (LUT) and Gaussian filtering methods. We embed a part of important LUT templates into a halftone image and restore the lossless image after these(More)
Both Galectin 9 (Gal-9)/T-cell immunoglobulin and mucin domain-containing protein 3 (TIM-3) pathway and follicular helper CD4+ T (Tfh) cells play important roles in persistent hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. Thus, we aimed to investigate the regulatory role of interaction between Gal-9/TIM-3 pathway and Tfh cells in chronic hepatitis C. A total of 44(More)
Virtual internal hyperspectrum of body surface which can express and properly mix the information of skin's composition and structure was expected to apply in the human disease quick-diagnosis, but the weak detected signal was easily impacted by ambient light and dark current from the instrument, so square wave modulated by chopper disk was proposed to(More)
Diabetes threatens the health of human beings. Because of the disadvantages of invasive glucose detection, Noninvasive glucose measurement which diabetics press for becomes the hotspot in both domestic and overseas academic circles. But up to now none of the available devices offers enough precision to clinical application. The principle, method,(More)
AIM To investigate the functional role and underlying molecular mechanism of miR-29a in hepatitis B virus (HBV) expression and replication. METHODS The levels of miR-29a and SMARCE1 in HBV-infected HepG2.2.15 cells were measured by quantitative real-time PCR and western blot analysis. HBV DNA replication was measured by quantitative PCR and Southern blot(More)
Hyperspectral imaging technology is expected as a breakthrough to resolve the lack of objective indicators on the diagnosis of TCM syndrome because of its high sensitivity and including abundant information of the images and spectra. In view of fuzzy and complicated mappings between tongue and syndrome, aiming at the defects of the acquisition methods of(More)
The imbalance of regulatory T cells (Tregs) and T helper 17 (Th17) cells contributes to the persistent hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. However, modulatory factors associated with Tregs-Th17 balance were not fully elucidated. A recent study demonstrated an immunoregulatory strategy by inactivation of Notch signaling to reverse the disequilibrium of(More)
