AIM Choledocholithiasis is present in 5 to 10 percent of patients who have cholelithiasis. In the area of laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC), laparoscopic common bile duct exploration (LCBDE) and intraoperative endoscopic sphincterotomy (IOES) have been used to treat choledocholithiasis. The purpose of this study was to compare the clinical outcomes and(More)
Acetohydroxyacid synthase (AHAS) has been regarded as a promising drug target against Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) as it catalyzes the biosynthesis of branched-chain amino acids. In this study, 23 novel AHAS inhibitors were identified through molecular docking followed by similarity search. The determined IC(50) values range from 0.385 ± 0.026 μM to(More)
Family investigation is a reliable model to study the effects of both genetic and environmental factors on human health. This article studies kidney-yang deficiency syndrome and cold syndrome through family investigation and cDNA microarray technology, exploring the effects of both genetic and environmental factors on the health of family members.(More)
AIM The gene melting spectral pattern (GMSP) of PCR products from 24 T-cell receptor beta chain variable (TCRBV) gene families was developed to determine sequence bias and feature of TCRBV CDR3 gene family. METHODS The assay was based on reverse transcript quantitative polymerase chain reaction and their DNA melting curves. RESULTS We discovered that(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study is to investigate with cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) the tooth length of permanent upper canines near the cleft area in patients with complete unilateral cleft lip palate (UCLP) and to compare the findings with its contralateral tooth, including full length, crown length, root length and top root ratio.(More)
Acetohydroxyacid synthase (AHAS) catalyzes the first essential biosynthetic step of branched-chain amino acids and is a biologically safe target against Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB). In our previous research, we used virtual screening to identify some novel AHAS inhibitors as potent antituberculosis agents. In this study, we synthesized twenty-four(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Intestinal microflora play a crucial role in some severe liver diseases. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of a Lactobacillus strain and a Bifidobacterium strain on ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) liver injury. METHODS Rats were divided into six groups. Each group received either Bifidobacterium Catenulatum ZYB0401;(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical effect of one stage anterior and posterior fusion and posterior fixation for the treatment of thoracic and lumbar spinal tuberculosis. METHODS From March 2003 to December 2006, one stage anterior and posterior fusion and posterior fixation were performed to treat 23 patients who suffered thoracic and lumbar spinal(More)
A series of alpha-substituted-1,2,3-thiadiazoleacetamides were prepared and tested in vitro against tobacco mosaic virus. The preliminary bioassays indicated that some of the new compounds are good as compared to the commercial pesticide Virus A at 500 mg/L, and the activity was influenced by the nature of the substituents. 3D-QSAR models were established(More)
The sulfonylurea herbicides exert their activity by inhibiting plant acetohydroxyacid synthase (AHAS), the first enzyme in the branched-chain amino acid biosynthesis pathway. It has previously been shown that if the gene for AHAS is deleted in Candida albicans , attenuation of virulence is achieved, suggesting AHAS as an antifungal drug target. Herein, we(More)
