Excess alcohol intake, as in binge drinking, increases susceptibility to microbial pathogens. Alcohol impairs macrophage function by suppression of the Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) pathway. This study investigated the effects of acute ethanol intake on the TLR4 pathway in rat intestinal epithelia, which usually encounters luminal antigens at first and(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the alteration of HBV markers in liver allograft of HBV related recipients pre and post liver transplantation under Lamivudine or combination of Lamivudine with HBIG prophylaxis and explore the mechanism of HBV de nova infection in liver allograft after orthotopic liver transplantation, as well as seek to establish a optimal(More)
A novel Gram-positive, rod-shaped, motile, spore-forming, nitrogen-fixing bacterium, designated strain 112T, was isolated from cabbage rhizosphere in Beijing, China. The strain was found to grow at 10–40 °C and pH 4–11, with an optimum of 30 °C and pH 7.0, respectively. Phylogenetic analysis based on a fragment of the full-length 16S rRNA gene sequence(More)
Vehicle network is popular gradually. For more security in vehicle network, a trusted AAA (Authentication, Authorization and Accounting) environment for vehicle network must be established. The paper proposes an approach to establish such an environment using combination of two next generation AAA protocols, PANA (Protocol for carrying Authentication for(More)
Reactive power spot markets have been proposed by many in the power engineering community as a means of reactive power compensation within the U.S. deregulated energy markets. Cited benefits include incentive for proper reactive power investment for power system stability, the minimization of costs to meet load, and proper reactive power price signals.(More)
BACKGROUND Metastases from malignant melanoma to the liver are rare in China, and surgical resection may be of potential benefit. Liver transplantation for this disease has never been reported. METHODS We report a case of adult-to-adult living donor liver transplantation (A-A LDLT) for metastatic melanoma. With a surgical history of ocular melanoma, the(More)
OBJECTIVE To test the hepatitis B virus (HBV) antigen presenting capacity of peripheral blood dendritic cells (DCs) from liver transplant recipients who were in the condition of postoperative HBV clinical clearance. METHODS Blood samples were obtained from 18 postoperative liver transplant recipients and 6 healthy adults. The peripheral blood mononuclear(More)
A Hybrid Axial Field Flux-Switching Permanent Magnet machine (HAFFSPMM) which is suitable for electrical vehicle drive is proposed in this paper. The size equations of the HAFFSPMM, including the power-size equations and the winding part, are deduced. According to the equations, a 3-phase 6/10 stator/rotor-pole HAFFSPMM is designed and the electromagnetic(More)
OBJECTIVE No optimal prophylactic protocol of hepatitis B immunoglobulin (HBIG) combined with nucleos(t)ide analogue for HBV recurrence has been established yet. By investigating the alterations of HBV markers in HBV related liver disease patients, recipients of a liver transplant, under lamivudine or/and HBIG prophylaxis, we aim to explore the possible HBV(More)
