BACKGROUND Although psoriasis occurs worldwide, the prevalence varies considerably between different peoples and regions. In China, a questionnaire-based study was carried out in 1987 and the prevalence of psoriasis was found to be 0.12%. Since then, no large-scale, population-based study has been reported. OBJECTIVES To obtain the accurate figures for(More)
To explore the contribution of functional coding variants to psoriasis, we analyzed nonsynonymous single-nucleotide variants (SNVs) across the genome by exome sequencing in 781 psoriasis cases and 676 controls and through follow-up validation in 1,326 candidate genes by targeted sequencing in 9,946 psoriasis cases and 9,906 controls from the Chinese(More)
Disseminated infections caused by Trichosporon asahii are difficult to resolve. Combination regimens with synergistic drugs could provide additional options for treating trichosporonosis. The aim of this study was to evaluate the antifungal activities of voriconazole (VCZ), caspofungin (CAS) and amphotericin B (AMB) alone or in combination in vitro against(More)
The human major histocompatibility complex (MHC) region has been shown to be associated with numerous diseases. However, it remains a challenge to pinpoint the causal variants for these associations because of the extreme complexity of the region. We thus sequenced the entire 5-Mb MHC region in 20,635 individuals of Han Chinese ancestry (10,689 controls and(More)
Cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE) refers to those subtypes of lupus erythematosus (LE) that have predominantly skin manifestations. Discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE), subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus (SCLE), LE panniculitis (LEP) and lupus erythematosus tumidus (LET) all fall into the category of CLE. The pathogenesis of CLE is likely(More)
Permanent magnet (PM) brushless machines having magnets and windings in stator (the so-called stator-PM machines) have attracted more and more attention in the past decade due to its definite advantages of robust structure, high power density, high efficiency, etc. In this paper, an overview of the stator-PM machine is presented, with particular emphasis on(More)
