Enhanced monocyte adhesion to endothelial cells is an early event in atherogenesis. It has been shown that C-reactive protein (CRP) plays a key role in atherogenesis. Here, we investigated the effects of CRP on monocyte-endothelial cell adhesion and tested the hypothesis that NADPH oxidase (NOX)-mediated oxidative stress might play a key role in CRP-induced(More)
AIM In the present study, we investigated whether the therapeutic dosages of Ginkgo biloba extract (EGb) and Aspirin (ASP) might synergistically suppress oxidative stress through regulating the expressions of LOX-1 and phosphorylated p38MAPK (p-p38MAPK) in human coronary artery endothelial cells (HCAECs) ex vivo. METHODS HCAECs were stressed with(More)
Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) plays an essential role in proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs). The Rb/E2F and TSC/mTOR pathways contribute to the proliferation of VSMCs, but its exact roles in PDGF-induced proliferation are unclear. In this study, we demonstrated the roles of Rb/E2F and TSC/mTOR pathways in PDGF-induced(More)
Positive acceleration (+Gz) in the head-to-foot direction generated by modern high-performance fighter jets during flight maneuvers is characterized by high G values and a rapid rate of acceleration, and is often long in duration and a repeated occurrence. The acceleration overload far exceeds the pilot's physiological tolerance limits and causes(More)
INTRODUCTION It remains unclear whether exposure to repeated positive acceleration (+Gz) can exacerbate endothelial dysfunction on the basis of hyperlipidemia. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of repeated +Gz exposure on endothelial function in high-fat-diet-induced hyperlipidemic rats. MATERIAL AND METHODS Male Sprague-Dawley rats were(More)
OBJECTIVE Endovascular chimney technique has been increasingly reported in treating aortic arch pathologies. However, there are still concerns about this technique. The aim of this study is to evaluate the safety and outcome of this technique by performing a systematic review and meta-analysis. METHODS Medline, EMBASE and Cochrane databases were(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the concentration changes of Tamm-Horsefall protein (THP) under centrifugation in rat urine and discuss its association with urolithiasis formation. METHODS A total of 40 Wistar rats were divided randomly into 4 groups of flying with stone (A), flying without stone (B), stone without flying (C) and control (D). After centrifugation,(More)
