Effects of short-term heat stress on oxidative damage and responses of antioxidant system in Lilium longiflorum
This paper aims to determine the changes in reactive oxygen species (ROS) and the responses of the lily (Lilium longiflorum L.) antioxidant system to short-term high temperatures. Plants were exposed… Expand
Catastrophic Health Expenditure and Rural Household Impoverishment in China: What Role Does the New Cooperative Health Insurance Scheme Play?
Objective To determine whether the New Cooperative Medical Insurance Scheme (NCMS) is associated with decreased levels of catastrophic health expenditure and reduced impoverishment due to medical… Expand

Nanostructured Co-doped birnessites were successfully synthesized, and their application for the removal of Pb(2+) and As(III) from aquatic systems was investigated. Powder X-ray diffraction,… Expand
Heme oxygenase-1 upregulation significantly inhibits TNF-alpha and Hmgb1 releasing and attenuates lipopolysaccharide-induced acute lung injury in mice.
The present study was designed to investigate whether administration of CoPPIX, an HO-1 inducer, could significantly inhibit TNF-alpha and Hmgb1 expression and thus attenuate the acute lung injury… Expand
ACE2 overexpression ameliorates left ventricular remodeling and dysfunction in a rat model of myocardial infarction.
The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that overexpression of angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) may favorably affect left ventricular (LV) remodeling and function after myocardial… Expand
Folic acid modified cationic γ-cyclodextrin-oligoethylenimine star polymer with bioreducible disulfide linker for efficient targeted gene delivery.
For an efficient folate-targeted delivery, while the interaction between the folate on the carriers and the folate receptor (FR) on the cells is necessary, the recovering and recycling of FR to… Expand
Fructose-1,6-diphosphate attenuates acute lung injury induced by lipopolysaccharide in mice.
Fructose-1,6-diphosphate (FDP), a high-energy glycolytic pathway intermediate, is reported to have a salutary effect in endotoxic shock and sepsis, but its underlying mechanism of action in… Expand
Heme oxygenase-1 ameliorates LPS-induced acute lung injury correlated with downregulation of interleukin-33.
Although studies have shown that heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) can abrogate leukocyte recruitment and tissue injury after LPS stimulation, the underlying mechanisms remain incompletely understood.… Expand
Interleukin-33 facilitates neutrophil recruitment and bacterial clearance in S. aureus-caused peritonitis.
Interleukin (IL)-33, a newly recognized member of IL-1 family of cytokines, plays an important role in polarizing Th2-associated immunity. Recently growing evidence indicates that IL-33 also… Expand
An impact evaluation of the Safe Motherhood Program in China.
Using 11 years of county-level panel data, fixed effect models are estimated to evaluate the impact of the Safe Motherhood (SM) Program in China. Propensity score matching is used to select… Expand
