Background. Frontal lobe atrophy (FLA) is associated with late life depression. However, the role that FLA plays in the development of depression after stroke (DAS) remains unknown. This study thus examined the association between FLA and DAS. Methods. A convenience sample of 705 Chinese patients with acute ischemic stroke admitted to the acute stroke unit(More)
Differences of both amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) and simple sequence repeat (SSR) polymorphisms were compared between the 60-d-old rice (Oryza sativa L. cv. DH7) and F3 rice plants (SP3) derived from seed, which endured a 7-d-space flight in March 2002. Total leaf AFLP DNA bands amplified from 22 primer pairs were 537 in DH7, whereas 562 in(More)
In patients with familial combined hyperlipidemia (FCHL) and type 2 diabetes (DM2) organ-specific differences in insulin resistance may exist. In FCHL and DM2 in vivo insulin mediated muscle glucose uptake and inhibition of lipolysis were studied by euglycemic hyperinsulinemic clamp. Insulin mediated glucose uptake was impaired to the same extent in both(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to compare the frequency of anxiety symptoms between patients with frontal lobe epilepsy (FLE) and generalized epilepsy (GE). METHODS Forty and 78 patients with FLE and GE respectively were enrolled in the study. Anxiety symptoms were measured with the Hamilton anxiety rating scale (HARS) and the anxiety subscale of the(More)
The objective of this cross-sectional study was to identify the factors associated with health-related quality of life (HRQOL) of family caregivers of Chinese stroke patients. One hundred and twenty-three stroke patients consecutively admitted to a stroke clinic and their 123 family caregivers were recruited. The caregivers' HRQOLs were assessed with the(More)
The processes ψ(2S) → γπ+π−, γK+K− and γpp̄ have been studied using a sample of 3.79 × 106 ψ(2S) decays. We determine the total width of the χc0 to be Γ tot χc0 = 14.3 ± 2.0 ± 3.0 MeV. We present the first measurement of the branching fraction B(χc0 → pp̄) = (15.9 ± 4.3 ± 5.3) × 10−5, where the first error is statistical and the second one systematic.(More)
A comparison of the rates for ψ(2S) → π+π−J/ψ, J/ψ → l+l− and J/ψ → anything is used to determine the J/ψ leptonic branching fractions. The results are B(J/ψ → e+e−) = (5.90 ± 0.05 ± 0.10)% and B(J/ψ → μ+μ−) = (5.84 ± 0.06 ± 0.10)%, where the first error is statistical and the second is systematic. Assuming lepton universality, the leptonic branching(More)

The processes ψ(2S) → γπ+π−, γK+K− and γpp̄ have been studied using a sample of 3.7× 106 produced ψ(2S) decays. We determine the total width of the χc0 to be Γ tot χc0 = 14.3± 2.0± 3.0 MeV. We present the first measurement of the branching fraction B(χc0 → pp̄) = (16.3± 4.4± 5.4)× 10−5, where the first error is statistical and the second one systematic.(More)
