BACKGROUND Airway remodeling is a repair process that occurs after injury resulting in increased airway hyper-responsiveness in asthma. Thymic stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP), a vital cytokine, plays a critical role in orchestrating, perpetuating and amplifying the inflammatory response in asthma. TSLP is also a critical factor in airway remodeling in asthma.(More)
OBJECTIVES Cellular senescence is a state of irreversible growth arrest induced either by telomere shortening (replicative senescence) or stress. The bronchial epithelial cell is often injured by inhaled toxic substances, such as cigarette smoke. In the present study, we investigated whether exposure to cigarette smoke extract (CSE) induces senescence of(More)
This article proposes a dual heat source heat pump bathroom unit with preheater which is feasible for a single family. The system effectively integrates the air source heat pump (ASHP) and wastewater source heat pump (WSHP) technologies, and incorporates a preheater to recover shower wastewater heat and thus improve the total coefficient of performance(More)
Selective catalytic reduction of NO x with NH 3 (NH 3-SCR) has been widely investigated to reduce NO x emissions from combustion processes, which cause environmental challenges. However, most of the current work on NO x reduction has focused on using feed gas without CO 2 or containing small amounts of CO 2. In the future, oxy-fuel combustion will play an(More)
Photo-chemical smog and acid rain formed from many pollutants including NOx are serious problems that have attracted much attention due to their negative influences on the atmosphere, plants, animals and even building materials. Effective measures of controlling NOx emissions are necessary. In this study, a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software, Ansys(More)
This study aimed to compare the efficacy and safety of thrombolytic and anticoagulant therapy for acute submas-sive pulmonary embolism (PE). A retrospective evaluation was performed on 25 consecutive inpatients with acute submassive PE treated by thrombolytic therapy and 25 earlier consecutive inpatients with acute submassive PE treated by anticoagulant(More)
Found in inflammatory zone 1 (FIZZ1) plays a vital role in pulmonary inflammation and angiogenesis. In addition, FIZZ1 plays a role in the early stages of airway remodeling in asthma by increasing the expression of α smooth muscle actin (α‑SMA) and type I collagen. However, the role of FIZZ1 in the airway remodeling of asthma remains unclear. In the present(More)
