Allergic rhinitis is a major public health problem and has seen its prevalence increase during the past few decades. Interleukin 13 (IL-13) has been implicated in the pathogenesis and in the regulation of immunoglobulin E (IgE) production. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have been found in both the coding sequence and the promoter region of IL-13,(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to determine whether susceptibility or resistance to Artemisia pollen-induced allergic rhinitis was associated with HLA class II DQA1, DQB1 loci. Study design and setting Forty-one subjects with allergic rhinitis and 41 healthy controls from Beijing were genotyped at HLA class II DQA1, DQB1 alleles by polymerase chain(More)
In this paper, we propose an enhancement of Mobile IP called MIP with HA Handover (HH-MIP) to enjoy most of the advantages of Route Optimization MIP (ROMIP) but with only a small increase of signaling overhead. In HH-MIP, the concept of Temporary HA (THA) is proposed and the mobile host registers the new CoA with its THA rather than its original HA.(More)
OBJECTIVE To discuss the treatment of compound betamethasone injection in cases with the intractable low-frequency sensorineural hearing loss (LFSNHL). METHODS Compound betamethasone injection 1 ml had been injected postaural only once to 23 cases with the unilateral LFSNHL, then observe the effect and follow-up at least 6 months. At the same time, the(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) on postoperation continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment in patients with obstructive sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS). METHODS 66 OSAHS patients underwent UPPP were recruited and all were followed up for more than 12 months. Among them 24 patients were treated with(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the suppressive effect and its frequency selection of dopamine on the cochlear auditory afferent nerve activity. To offer an important step in understanding the modulation of dopamine in the inner cell synaptic complex. METHODS Forty guinea pigs were randomly divided into four groups and the whole intracochlear perfusions were(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the value of the reflux symptom index (RSI) and reflux finding score (RFS) in laryngopharyngeal reflux disease (LPRD). METHODS Twenty-five patients with RSI scores > 13 or RFS scores > 7 and sixteen patients with RSI scores > 13 and RFS scores > 7 were suspected as LPRD. Forty one patients with the RSI scores > 13 and/or RFS scores > 7(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the operative indications and treatment for adhesive otitis media (AOM). METHODS Sixty-nine cases of AOM were undergone tympanoplasty between 1995 to 2000. Preoperative average air-bone gap(A-B gap) were (43.7 +/- 3.9) dB. Forty-one cases could be postoperative followed up for more than one year. Preoperative average A-B gap of this(More)
