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)
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)
UNLABELLED 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. PURPOSE To test the reliability and validity of Chinese version PDQ-39. METHODS Hundred and(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)
