BACKGROUND Men who have sex with men (MSM) are much more likely to be infected with HIV than the general population. China has a sizable population of MSM, including gay, bisexual men, money boys and some rural workers. So reducing HIV infection in this population is an important component of the national HIV/AIDS prevention and control program. METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND Accumulated evidence reveals that abnormally expressed genes in eutopic endometrium of endometriosis play a critical role in the pathogenesis of endometriosis. AIMS Identification of endometriosis-related genes for further revealing the pathogenesis of endometriosis and offering the basis for developing the molecular-targeted diagnosis and(More)
This study aimed to optimize and evaluate a thermoresponsive ophthalmic in situ gel containing curcumin-loaded albumin nanoparticles (Cur-BSA-NPs-Gel). Albumin nanoparticles were prepared via a desolvation method, and the gels were prepared via a cold method. The central composite design and response surface method was used to evaluate the effects of(More)
Expression levels of estrogen receptor cofactors (coactivators or corepressors) in specific tissue compartments and cells are thought to influence the expression of estrogen responsive genes and thereby influence overall hormonal responsiveness of target tissues. To date, the presence of cofactors has been reported in tissues from humans, rats and mice. We(More)
This study aimed to identify the effect of β-caryophyllene (BCP) pretreatment and elucidate the Nrf2/HO-1 signaling mechanism after focal cerebral ischemia-reperfusion (I-R) injury in rats. Adult male Sprague–Dawley rats were randomly assigned to the sham-operated group, I-R group and BCP pretreated I-R group. At 24 h after reperfusion, neurological(More)
OBJECTIVE To project the HIV/AIDS epidemics among men who have sex with men (MSM) under different combinations of HIV testing and linkage to care (TLC) interventions including antiretroviral therapy (ART) in Beijing, China. DESIGN Mathematical modeling. METHODS Using a mathematical model to fit prevalence estimates from 2000-2010, we projected trends in(More)
From February to May, 2013, 132 human avian influenza H7N9 cases were identified in China resulting in 37 deaths. We developed a novel, simple and effective compartmental modeling framework for transmissions among (wild and domestic) birds as well as from birds to human, to infer important epidemiological quantifiers, such as basic reproduction number for(More)
Social media systems with Q&A functionalities have accumulated large archives of questions and answers. Two representative types are online forums and community-based Q&A services. To enable users to explore the large number of questions and answers in social media systems effectively, it is essential to suggest interesting items to an active user. In this(More)
