BACKGROUND Damage-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs) are associated with immunogenic cell death and have the ability to enhance maturation and antigen presentation of dendritic cells (DCs). Specific microtubule-depolymerizing agents (MDAs) such as colchicine have been shown to confer anti-cancer activity and also trigger activation of DCs. METHODS In(More)
Although various pharmacological activities of the shikonins have been documented, understanding the hierarchical regulation of these diverse bioactivities at the genome level is unsubstantiated. In this study, through cross examination between transcriptome and microRNA array analyses, we predicted that topical treatment of shikonin in vivo affects(More)
SCOPE Traditional medicinal herbs are increasingly used as alternative therapies in patients with inflammatory diseases. Here we evaluated the effect of Wedelia chinensis, a medicinal herb commonly used in Asia, on the prevention of dextran sulfate sodium (DSS)-induced acute colitis in mice. General safety and the effect of different extraction methods on(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the effect of sedative music on the different stages of the sleep cycle in young adults with various sleep latencies by using polysomnography (PSG). DESIGN Prospective, randomized, controlled, crossover study. SETTING Sleep center of a teaching hospital. PARTICIPANTS Young adults with different sleep latencies. Poor sleepers(More)
How is motion information that has been obtained through multiple viewing apertures integrated to form a global motion percept? We investigated the mechanisms of motion integration across apertures in two hemifields by presenting gratings through two rectangles (that form the dual barber poles) and recording the perceived direction of motion by human(More)
2 /day at a temperature of 20°C. The ordinary kriging method was then applied to map the spatial distribution of the monthly average SOD values, which were incorporated into a three-dimensional water quality model for simulating the dissolved oxygen distribution of the lake. The simulation results accurately reflect the field-measured DO concentrations.(More)
