To the Editors, We appreciate the readers’ interest in our paper, and we are pleased to respond to the comments point by point. First, we acknowledge that the population in our study is older than a general PICU population. Of course, the ideal cohort of study subjects would include a greater variety of ages, sizes, and disease states with both elevated and(More)
Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) are members of the TGF-β superfamily and play a critical role in skeletal development, bone formation and stem cell differentiation. Disruptions in BMP signaling result in a variety of skeletal and extraskeletal anomalies. BMP9 is a poorly characterized member of the BMP family and is among the most osteogenic BMPs,(More)
In this work, the conditions ensuring existence, uniqueness, and global exponential stability of the equilibrium point of interval neural networks with variable delays are studied. Applying the idea of the vector Lyapunov function, and M-matrix theory, the sufficient conditions for global exponential stability of interval neural networks are obtained. c ©(More)

The Wnt signaling pathway plays an important role not only in embryonic development but also in the maintenance and differentiation of the stem cells in adulthood. In particular, Wnt signaling has been shown as an important regulatory pathway in the osteogenic differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells. Induction of the Wnt signaling pathway promotes bone(More)
In this paper, without assuming the boundedness, monotonicity and differentiability of the activation functions, we present new conditions ensuring existence, uniqueness, and global asymptotical stability of the equilibrium point of Hopfield neural network models with fixed time delays or distributed time delays. The results are applicable to both symmetric(More)
Cordycepin (Cor), which is a naturally occurring nucleoside derivative isolated from Cordyceps militaris, has been shown to exert excellent antiinflammatory activity in a murine model of acute lung injury. Thus, this study aimed to evaluate the antiasthmatic activity of Cor (10, 20, and 40 mg/kg) and to investigate the possible underlying molecular(More)
The purpose of this study was to simultaneously investigate the pharmacokinetics of five bioactive compounds in rat plasma after oral administration of Buyang Huanwu decoction (BYHWD) using high-performance liquid chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS). The separations were performed on a Thermo Hypersil Gold C(18) analytical column (50 ×(More)
