The serum triglyceride (TG) and total cholesterol (TC) levels have been reported altered in the traditional drug-dependence (such as marijuana and heroin). However, studies assessing the relationships among serum TC, TG, and methamphetamine (MA)-dependence have not been described well. In this study, our aim is to explore the serum TG and TC levels in large(More)
This study proposes both replenishing type and leaking type valve-pump parallel controlled systems, and then establishes their mathematical principle models and simulated numerical models. Comparative analysis of performances and parameters of the pump controlled system and valve-pump parallel controlled system indicate that the proposed systems can respond(More)
BACKGROUND Depression symptoms is highly comorbid with methamphetamine (METH) dependence. Except for the role in the pathophysiology of depression symptoms, brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is also involved in the METH dependence. The present study aims to explore whether BDNF plays a role in the development of depression symptoms during METH(More)
ing that many correct answers may be achieved on MMSE whilst the other tests remain at floor. MMSE is recognized to include relatively easy items which are of little value in patient assessment. Greater coincidence of the various test scores occurred around ceiling. Calculation and application of these regression equations are a relatively simple way to(More)
BACKGROUND There is evidence that stroke is accompanied by oxidative stress. However, the links between oxidative stress and depression in stroke patients are poorly understood. This study examines whether post-stroke depression (PSD) is associated with oxidative stress. METHODS Overall, 216 acute stroke patients were consecutively recruited and followed(More)
An increasing number of evidences indicate microbes are implicated in human physiological mechanisms, including complicated disease pathology. Some microbes have been demonstrated to be associated with diverse important human diseases or disorders. Through investigating these disease-related microbes, we can obtain a better understanding of human disease(More)
Low levels of serum vitamin D are common in patients with mood disorders and stroke. It has been shown that low levels of serum vitamin D indicate a risk of depression in post-stroke subjects. Our aim was to determine the relationship between vitamin D and post-stroke anxiety (PSA).A consecutive series of 226 first acute ischemic stroke patients were(More)
