METHOD To observe the brain (18)F-FDG PET imaging in 9 term and 7 preterm newborn infants in the same condition after administration of 0.1 mCi/kg(More)
ABSTRACT: In a rat model of fatal infection caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa, the circulating level of nitrite/nitrate (NO2−/NO3−), a good indicator for nitric oxide production, was remarkably increased after elevation of circulatory tumor necrosis factor (TNF). Anti-TNF MAb cotreatment was shown to blunt hypoglycemia and hyper-lacticemia and was associated(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY In this study, we evaluated protective effect of Acanthopanax senticosus extract (ASE) and a possible signaling pathway involved during endotoxic shock induced by intraperitoneal injection lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and D-galactosamine (D-GalN) in BALB/c mice. MATERIALS AND METHODS Mice were intraperitoneal administrated with ASE (100, 200(More)
UNLABELLED Dendritic cells (DC) are very potent antigen-presenting cells (APC) with a unique ability to activate naive T cells to induce the differentiation of TH1/TH2. Monocytes can develop into DC in the presence of different cytokines such as granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) and IL-4. DCs are thought to play a key role in the(More)
