OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of pulse high-volume hemofiltration (PHVHF) in patients with severe sepsis. METHODS Twenty-two patients with severe sepsis admitted to XiJing hospital between January 2009 and January 2010 were included in the present study. Patients were randomly divided into the control group (conventional(More)
Endotracheal or endobronchial metastasis from primary lung cancer is extremely rare. We report a case of endotracheal and endobronchial metastases from peripheral early lung adenocarcinoma 7 months after complete resection. The patient harbored the same gene mutation in both primary and metastatic lesions. This report highlights that enough attention on(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the impacts of continuous veno-venous hemofiltration (CVVH) on plasma cytokines and monocyte human leukocyte antigen-DR (HLA-DR) expression and to evaluate the relationship between them during CVVH treatment in septic patients. Forty septic patients were enrolled in this study. They were randomly divided into control(More)
OBJECTIVES The objective of the study was to investigate the significance of LC3 and beclin 1 in the pancreas of rat after acute necrotizing pancreatitis (ANP) and whether nuclear factor κB (NF-κB) signal regulates autophagy during sodium taurocholate-induced ANP. METHODS Acute necrotizing pancreatitis was induced in rat by sodium taurocholate injection(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this meta-analysis was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of duloxetine for management of osteoarthritis knee (OAK) pain. METHODS A systematic literature search of articles for management of OAK using duloxetine were performed in PubMed, EBSCO, EMBASE, ScienceDirect, MEDLINE, ClinicalTrials.gov, Google Scholar, and Cochrane Central(More)
Androgen receptor (AR) antagonist MDV3100 is the first therapeutic approach in treating castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), but tumours frequently become drug resistant via multiple mechanisms including AR amplification and mutation. Here we identify the small molecule Ailanthone (AIL) as a potent inhibitor of both full-length AR (AR-FL) and(More)
Microtubule plays many different essential roles in the process of tumorigenesis in many eukaryotes, and targeting mitotic progression by disturbing microtubule dynamics is used as a common strategy for cancer treatment. Microtubule-targeted drugs, including paclitaxel and Vinca alkaloids, were previously considered to work primarily by increasing or(More)
In this paper, a semi-blind channel estimator using receiver diversity is proposed for OFDM systems in the presence of virtual carriers over a time-dispersive channel. We insert a pilot to each data block to resolve the inherent scalar ambiguity of blind identification. The computation complexity of this algorithm is also studied and reduced. By simulation,(More)
