Rhubarb has been used to decrease plasma cholesterol levels and reduce vascular endothelial cellular damage in recent years. However, it is not known whether reported lipid-lowering effects are associated with the improvement of endothelial function. This work aimed to elucidate the therapeutic effects of rhubarb on serum lipids and brachial artery(More)
Influenza virus infection is extremely common and raises global concern due to the increasing prevalence of pandemic H1N1 infection. Influenza may occasionally be associated with neurologic complications and, also, rarely with gastrointestinal complications. Here, we report a rare case complicated with appendicitis, duodenum perforation, and transient(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop a new technique of bilateral angiography in a single radial access (BASiRalA) which can reduce a puncture site. METHODS From March 2011 to February 2012, 13 cases of coronary heart disease patients with chronic total occlusion (CTO) were treated (6 CTOs in right coronary artery and 7 in left anterior descending artery). All patients(More)
Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is an organ-specific autoimmune disease characterized by the production of antiplatelet antibodies secreted by B cells resulting in enhanced destruction of platelets by macrophages. B cells have been demonstrated to play a critical role in the genesis of ITP. Recently identified B cells activating factor of the TNF(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the effect of Quyu Xiaoban capsule (QXC) on regression and stabilization of atherosclerotic plaque with high-frequency ultrasound technique. METHODS Eighty patients with atherosclerosis (AS) were randomly divided into the treated group and the control group, level of blood lipids was measured, and intima-media thickness (IMT) and(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of Quyu Xiaoban Capsule (QYXB) on the regressive treatment of atherosclerosis (AS) with acoustic densitometry (AD) technique. METHODS Eighty patients with AS were randomly divided into two groups, trial group was treated with QYXB and conventional medicine, and control group was treated with conventional medicine alone.(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the therapeutic effects of Quyu Xiaoban Capsule (QYXBC) on endothelial dependent vascular relaxation (EDVR) function in patients with atherosclerosis (AS) with ultrasonic technique. METHODS Tested were the endothelial function and blood lipids of 42 patients with AS in the treated group and 30 healthy volunteers in the control group.(More)
