Depressive symptoms affect 40% to 50% of Parkinson's disease (PD) patients, and adversely impact their quality of life. The decrease of serotonin (5-HT) in the synaptic cleft is commonly considered as the cause of depression. The reuptake of 5-HT released into the synaptic cleft is mediated by the 5-HT transporter (5-HTT). Many studies have focused on the(More)
BACKGROUND Neural apoptosis is generally believed to be mediated by two distinct pathways, caspase-dependant and caspase-independent pathways. This study investigated the apoptotic pathways involved in retinal ganglion cells in acute diabetes in rats. METHODS Diabetes was induced in male Wistar rats by a peritoneal injection of streptozotocin (STZ).(More)
The syndromes of Parkinson’s disease (PD) have impacts on health-related quality of life (HRQL). The 39-item Parkinson’s disease Questionnaire (PDQ-39) was the first specific and a consistent instrument for the evaluation of HRQL in PD patients. To test the reliability and validity of Chinese version PDQ-39. Hundred and twenty-six PD without cognitive(More)
BACKGROUND Neovascularization can cause vision loss in proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) and may be affected by many factors. Stromal cell-derived factor-1 (SDF-1) is a potent stimulator of angiogenesis. The study was aimed to investigate the expression of SDF-1 and its correlation with vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in the eyes with(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the changes in retinal functions using multifocal electroretinography (mfERG) following intravitreal injection of Lucentis for treatment of wet age-related macular degeneration. METHODS This prospective study was conducted in 14 patients (9 men and 5 women, 14 eyes) with wet age-related macular degeneration receiving treatment with(More)
The unusual π-halogen bond interactions are investigated between (BNN)₃⁺ and X1X2 (X1, X2 = F, Cl, Br) employing MP2 at 6-311 + G(2d) and aug-cc-pVDZ levels according to the "CP (counterpoise) corrected potential energy surface (PES)" method. The order of the π-halogen bond interactions and stabilities of the complexes are obtained to be (BNN)₃⁺... F₂ <(More)
