Baicalin is an important medicinal herb purified from the dry roots of Scutellaria baicalensis Georgi. The present study was undertaken to evaluate the neuroprotective effects of baicalin in gerbils subjected to transient global cerebral ischemic-reperfusion injury. Baicalin at doses of 50, 100 and 200mg/kg was intraperitoneally injected into the gerbils(More)
Prenatal exposure to valproic acid (VPA) in rat offspring is capable of inducing experimental autism with neurobehavioral aberrations. This study investigated the effect of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) on hippocampal cell death, learning and memory alteration in an experimental rat autism model. We found that DHA supplementation (75, 150 or 300 mg/kg/day, 21(More)
BACKGROUND Early detection and diagnosis are very important for autism. Current diagnosis of autism relies mainly on some observational questionnaires and interview tools that may involve a great variability. We performed a metabolomics analysis of serum to identify potential biomarkers for the early diagnosis and clinical evaluation of autism. METHODS We(More)
Docosahexaenoic acid (22:6n-3; DHA) is known to play a critical role in postnatal brain development. However, there have been no studies investigating the preventive effect of DHA on prenatal valproic acid (VPA)-induced behavioral and molecular alterations in offspring. The present study was to evaluate the neuroprotective effects in offspring using(More)
Neurogenic pulmonary edema (NPE) is found in many epilepsy patients at autopsy. It is a life-threatening complication, known for almost 100 years, but its etiopathogenesis is still not completely understood. In this study, we used the tremor rat (TRM: tm/tm) as an animal model of epilepsy to investigate the potential mechanisms of NPE under epileptic(More)
AIMS To investigate the effect of FTY720 on the valproic acid (VPA) rat model of autism. MAIN METHODS As an animal model of autism, we used intraperitoneal injection of VPA on embryonic day 12.5 in Wistar rats. The pups were given FTY720 orally at doses of 0.25, 0.5 and 1mg/kg daily from postnatal day 15 to 35. Social behavior, spatial learning and memory(More)
To investigate whether the decreased level of serum polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) in patients with autism is associated with the expression of related liver metabolic enzymes, we selected rats that were exposed to valproic acid (VPA) on embryonic day 12.5 (E12.5) as a model of autism. We observed the serum levels of PUFAs and the expression of related(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the prevalence and risk factors of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in Heilongjiang province. METHODS This was a population-based and cross-sectional survey on prevalence of COPD in Heilongjiang province from September 2013 to March 2014. The stratified-cluster-random sampling method was performed to collect the data from 4(More)
