New Onset Diabetes after Transplantation (NODAT) is defined as sustained hyperglycemia developing in patients without diabetes history before transplantation. A cohort study was performed to access the effects of tacrolimus on insulin secretion and insulin sensitivity and consequently in the development of NODAT in kidney transplant recipients. Then, we(More)
Diltiazem is a benzothiazepine calcium blocker and widely used in renal transplant patients since it improves the level of tacrolimus or cyclosporine A concentration. Several population pharmacokinetic (PopPK) models had been established for cyclosporine A and tacrolimus but no specific PopPK model was established for diltiazem. The aim of the study is to(More)
Central post-stroke pain (CPSP) is an intractable central neuropathic pain that has been poorly studied mechanistically. Here we showed that stromal cell-derived factor 1 (SDF1 or CXCL12), a member of the CXC chemokine family, and its receptor CXCR4 played a key role in the development and maintenance of thalamic hemorrhagic CPSP through hypoxia inducible(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of the CYP3A5*3 allele on the pharmacokinetics of tacrolimus and amlodipine, and drug-drug interactions between them in healthy subjects. Pharmacokinetic drug interactions between tacrolimus and amlodipine were evaluated in a randomized, 3-period, 6-sequence crossover study in healthy Chinese volunteers(More)
OBJECTIVE The present study aimed to develop a culturally appropriate and functional Standard Mandarin Chinese translation of the short-form McGill Pain Questionnaire-2 (SF-MPQ-2) and to assess its reliability and validity for characterizing chronic visceral pain in Chinese patients. BACKGROUND The SF-MPQ-2 has been widely used in studies of pain(More)
The effects of genetic polymorphisms of ABCB1 C3435T, POR*28, CYP3A4*1G and CYP3A5*3 variants and gender relating to metabolism on the exposure and response of amlodipine in Chinese hypertensive patients were determined. Population pharmacokinetic analyses were performed on data which were collected prospectively from 60 Chinese patients with mild to(More)
With the rapid development of imaging diagnosis and interventional therapy, contrast media (CM) are widely used in clinics. However, contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) is the third leading cause of hospital-acquired acute renal failure accounting for 10-12% of all causes of hospital-acquired renal failure. Recent study found that inflammation may(More)
BACKGROUND In a 5-year follow-up study in a hospital in southern China, it was shown that intervertebral foramen (IVF) injection of ozone at the involved segmental levels could significantly alleviate paroxysmal spontaneous pain and mechanical allodynia in patients with chronic, intractable postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) and improve the quality of life.(More)
