OBJECTIVE This study is designed to observe the urinary tumor necrosis factor-like weak inducer of apoptosis (TWEAK) levels in patients with lupus nephritis (LN) and to identify new biomarker of lupus nephritis activity. METHODS Study subjects were 46 cases of patients with LN (including 34 of active cases) who underwent routine renal biopsy. Activity and(More)
Fasciclin-like arabinogalactan proteins (FLAs), a subclass of arabinogalactan proteins (AGPs), have both predicted AGP-like glycosylated regions and putative fasciclin (FAS) domains, which may function in cell adhesion and communication. Previous studies have identified 21, 27, and 34 FLAs in Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana), rice (Oryza sativa), and(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to observe the effect of stress caused by neuropathic pain on serum cortisol concentration and expression of 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type I enzyme (11βHSD1) in spinal cord and dorsal root ganglions (DRG) and investigate the role and mechanism of curcumin in the neuropathic pain of stressful rats. Neuropathic(More)
The paper presents a method to estimate real body shape of dressed human. In the method we build a function to describe the fat extent of every vertex on the body. The fat extent is relative to the slim body template and the fat body template. Using the fat function and two templates a synthesizing model is created. The 3D scans of dressed human obtained by(More)
Buyanghuanwu Decoction (BYHWD), as a traditional Chinese medicine, has been developed to treat vascular dementia for hundreds of years, but the underlying mechanisms remain unknown. In this research, the protective effects of BYHWD on hippocampal neuron were examined in the rats of ischemia-reperfusion. Ischemia-reperfusion injury was induced by the(More)
