Assessing the concentration of potentially harmful heavy metals in the soil of urban parks is imperative in order to evaluate the potential risks to residents and tourists. To date, little research on soil pollution in China's urban parks has been conducted. To identify the concentrations and sources of heavy metals, and to assess the soil environmental(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 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)
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)
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)
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)
Multiple synchronous lung cancers (MSLCs) present a clinical dilemma as to whether individual tumours represent intrapulmonary metastases or independent tumours. In this study we analyse genomic profiles of 15 lung adenocarcinomas and one regional lymph node metastasis from 6 patients with MSLC. All 15 lung tumours demonstrate distinct genomic profiles,(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)
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)
