OBJECTIVE Candidate gene association studies and genome-wide association studies (GWAs) have identified a large number of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) loci affecting susceptibility to rheumatoid arthritis (RA). However, for the same locus, some studies have yielded inconsistent results. To assess all the available evidence for association, we(More)
Our aim was to determine the usefulness of fluorescence examination and photodynamic therapy (PDT) for the management of perianal extramammary Paget's disease. A 75-year-old woman underwent two courses of PDT. The first treatment was carried out with topically applied 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) to the affected area (2.5 x 2.5 cm(2)) 3 h before light(More)
Water-treatment flocculants are being developed from traditional to inorganic, from inorganic to organic, from natural organic to synthetic organic, from synthetic organic to modified natural organic, from inorganic or organic to inorganic-organic, and from chemical to biological with ecological safety. In order to promote the rapid development and(More)
A series of photoresponsive halogen-bonded liquid crystals (LCs) were successfully constructed using molecular halogen and azopyridine compounds, which show interesting properties of photoinduced phase transition upon UV irradiation. In addition, bromine-bonded LCs were first obtained with high mesophase stability.
To make a comprehensive assessment on monosodium glutamate wastewater pollution, a pollution exposure experiment was carried out on the seed germination and root elongation of wheat, Chinese cabbage and tomato by using the wastewater discharged from different processing phases of monosodium glutamate production. The results showed that there were(More)
The bio-rack is a new approach for treating low-concentration polluted river water in wetland systems. A comparative study of the efficiency of contaminant removal between four plant species in bio-rack wetlands and between a bio-rack system and control system was conducted on a small-scale (500 mm length x 400 mm width x 400 mm height) to evaluate the(More)
Herbal drugs have been used for thousands of years in the east and have had a recent resurgence in popularity among consumers in the west. However, most of herbal drug are poorly soluble and have hydrophobic properties and poor distribution, leading to reduced bioavailability and hence decreased treatment efficacy, requiring repeated administration or(More)
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and 2,4-dichlorophenol (2,4-DCP) generally led to mixed contamination of soils as a result of commercial and agricultural activities. Their accumulation in the environment poses great risks to human and animal health. Therefore, the effective strategies for disposal of these pollutants are urgently needed. In this study,(More)
2,4-Dichlorophenol (2,4-DCP) is considered as an important pollutant because of its high toxicity and wide distribution in wastewaters. Innocuous remediation technologies have been studied for the removal of this pollutant. This study investigated the feasibility of using garlic roots as a plant system for the removal of 2,4-DCP. The optimal conditions for(More)
The management of information resource has become the key point to the large complicated system with the development of information technologies. Problems of storing pressure and reading efficiency became more serious because of data explotation and large scale of redundant data. A novel redundant data deleting algorithm based on the cloud storage plalform(More)
