BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Previous studies showed an inverse association between ideal cardiovascular health (CVH) metrics and the total risk of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between ideal CVH metrics and the risks of ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke, respectively. METHODS We collected information on the(More)
BACKGROUND The association between intracranial aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) or dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs) has been well documented, and the changes in cerebral blood flow dynamics were thought to be one of the major causes. There has not been a report on intracranial aneurysms associated with multiple DAVFs and AVMs in the(More)
Amorphous solid dispersions (ASDs) give rise to supersaturated solutions (solution concentration greater than equilibrium crystalline solubility). We have recently found that supersaturating dosage forms can exhibit the phenomenon of liquid-liquid phase separation (LLPS). Thus, the high supersaturation generated by dissolving ASDs can lead to a two-phase(More)
Many enabling formulations give rise to supersaturated solutions wherein the solute possesses higher thermodynamic activity gradients than the solute in a saturated solution. Since flux across a membrane is driven by solute activity rather than concentration, understanding how solute thermodynamic activity varies with solution composition, particularly in(More)
Antibacterial and antifungal peptides found in houseflies (Musca domestica) in large number are indispensable components of its immune defense mechanism. In this study the anterior tip of the larvae of housefly was cut off with a pair of fine scissors and hemolymph was collected and exuded in an ice-cold test tube. From the hemolymph an antifungal substance(More)
A total of 110 commercially available samples of manufactured food products including bread, oat, barley, maize, corn, wheat, grape, soluble coffee, soya bean, red wine, and baby food were randomly collected in the northeast of China during the first six months of 2010. Samples were analyzed for the presence of ochratoxin A (OTA) using immunoaffinity column(More)
To determine if transit time for excretion of gadoxetate into major bile ducts and duodenum correlates with clinical models of hepatocellular function. This retrospective research was approved by the Institutional Review Board with waiver of informed consent. Search of the radiology database from January 1, 2013 to March 4, 2014 revealed 84 patients with(More)
The Quick Easy Cheap Effective Rugged and Safe multiresidue method (QuEChERS) has been validated for the extraction of 15 organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) in completely different matrices of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). The method employed a rapid, simple and cost-effective procedure. The spiking levels for the recovery experiments were 0.1, 0.5 and(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to explore the association between adiposity and risk of incident stroke among men and women. METHODS We studied the relationship between adiposity and stroke among 94,744 participants (18-98 years old) in the Kailuan study. During a follow-up of 4 years, 1,547 ischemic or hemorrhagic strokes were recorded.(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Shensong Yangxin Capsule (SSYX), a traditional Chinese herbal medicine, has long been used clinically to treat arrhythmias in China. However, the effect of SSYX on interstitial fibrosis in diabetic cardiomyopathy is unknown. The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of SSYX on myocardial fibrosis in diabetic(More)
