This is a follow-up of our recent article Deng et al. (2004). In Deng et al. (2004), we derive some local geometric conditions on vortex filaments which can prevent finite time blowup of the 3D incompressible Euler equation. In this article, we derive improved geometric conditions which can be applied to the scenario when velocity blows up at the same time(More)
BACKGROUND Acute renal failure (ARF) is caused by ischemic and nephrotoxic insults acting alone or in combination. Anti-inflammatory agents have been shown to decrease renal ischemia-reperfusion and cisplatin-induced injury and leukocyte infiltration. Interleukin-10 (IL-10) is a potent anti-inflammatory cytokine that inhibits inflammatory and cytotoxic(More)
We conducted a population-based case-control study in China to investigate whether body size plays a role in prostate cancer etiology and whether it can explain the rapid increase in prostate cancer incidence rates in China. A total of 238 cases newly diagnosed with primary prostate cancer in Shanghai, China, during 1993-1995 were included in the study.(More)

Experiments were conducted to determine the effects of feeding different starch sources on piglets. Four diets were formulated with maize, brown rice, sticky rice and Hi-Maize 1043 as starch sources, with resistant starch (RS) contents of 2.3%, 0.9%, 0.0%, 20.6%, and amylose and amylopectin ratio of 0.23%, 0.21%, 0.18%, 0.06% respectively. Fifty-six pigs(More)
Cajal-Retzius (CR) cells are characteristic horizontally orientated, early-generated transient neurons in the marginal zones of the neocortex and hippocampus that synthesize the extracellular matrix protein reelin. They have been implicated in the pathfinding of entorhino-hippocampal axons, but their role in this process remained unclear. Here we have(More)
has been one of the most outstanding open problems. It plays a very important role in understanding the core problems in hydrodynamics such as the onset of turbulence (people have also tried to understand turbulence through studying weak solutions; see Scheffer, 1993 or Shnirelman, 1997). Much effort has been made to answer this question; see, e.g., Beale(More)
It has been suggested that the activity of the steroid 5alpha-reductase type II enzyme (encoded by the SRD5A2 gene) may be associated with prostate cancer risk and that population differences in this enzyme's activity may account for part of the substantial racial/ethnic disparity in prostate cancer risk. To provide etiological clues, we evaluated the(More)
Laminar distribution of fiber systems is a characteristic feature of hippocampal organization. Ingrowing afferents, e.g. the fibers from the entorhinal cortex, terminate in specific layers, which implies the existence of laminar recognition cues. To identify cues that are involved in the laminar segregation of fiber systems in the hippocampus, we used an in(More)
The authors followed 5,437 people aged 55 years and older with normal baseline Mini-Mental State Examination score annually for 5 years. The mean incidence of cognitive impairment was 2.3% per year. Cognitive activities in both the individual item (playing board games and reading) and the composite measure were associated with the reduced risk of cognitive(More)
The length of the polymorphic CAG trinucleotide repeat in the polyglutamine region of the androgen receptor (AR) gene is inversely correlated with the transactivation function of the AR. Because increased androgenic activity has been linked to prostate cancer and because an ethnic variation exists in the CAG repeat length, this polymorphism has been(More)
