The Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) equations provide a rapid method of assessing GFR in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). However, previous research indicated that modification of these equations is necessary for application in Chinese patients with CKD. The objective of this study was to modify MDRD equations on the basis of the(More)
Piglets infected in utero with porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) are born severely immunocompromised. In this article we more closely examine the effects of in utero PRRSV infection on circulating and thymic T cell populations. Numbers of CD4+, CD8+, and dual-positive lymphocytes were quantitated in circulation and in the thymus(More)
Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) consistently elevates the frequency of disease and mortality in young pigs. Many different secondary bacterial diseases occur in PRRS virus (PRRSV)-infected pigs. However, to date, establishing a reproducible experimental model of PRRSV infection in weaned pigs, with subsequent clinical disease following(More)
In wireless sensor networks (WSNs), secure data aggregation is an important application. Previous works are implemented by authentication among neighboring sensors. Considering that in many cases, data aggregation is both spatial and temporal correlation, this paper proposes a distributed and localized secure data aggregation algorithm based on behavior(More)
A new method for direct determination of ammonia in plasmas with indophenol reagent is described. It is shown that using sodium citrate as anticoagulant in phosphate buffer within pH 10.5-11.2, indophenol reagent reacts sensitively with ammonia in the plasmas to form a stable blue compound with a maximum absorption at 630 nm with low interference. The(More)
Comparative studies were carried out on GOD-trinder method for measuring glucose in serum with four different kinds of benzene-original phenols-phenyl hydroxide, 2,4-dichlorophenol, 2,6-dichlorophenol and resorcinol. It is shown that when the three coloring systems-phenyl hydroxide, 2,4-dichlorophenol or resorcinol coupling with glucose(More)
In the title compound, {[Co(C(14)H(8)N(2)O(5))(C(10)H(8)N(2))]·3H(2)O}(n), the Co(II) cation is five-coordinated with a slightly distorted trigonal-bipyramidal geometry, and the 5-isonicotinamidoisophthalate ligands link Co(II) atoms into a layered structure. These two-dimensional arrays are further pillared by rod-like 4,4'-bipyridine ligands to give a(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the expression of EphA2 and EphrinA1 and its relationship with angiogenesis in renal cell carcinoma and its relevance to clinicopathologic features. METHODS The expression of the EphA2 and EphrinA1 was detected by immunohistochemistry (IHC) in the tissues samples from 68 renal cell carcinomas and 24 normal kidneys, and(More)
Using tetrabutyl titanate as the titanium source, and ammonia and ferric nitrate as the sources of nitrogen and ferrum respectively, iron and nitrogen-codoped nano-TiO2 gelatins were prepared by sol-gel method. The iron and nitrogen-codoped nano-TiO2 complex films were prepared with the obtained gelatins used to coat the surface of cleaned glass slides by(More)
