BACKGROUND AND AIMS Artemisia halodendron is a native sub-shrub that occurs mainly in moving and semi-fixed sandy lands in Inner Mongolia, China. Information on the spatial patterns of wind-dispersed seed deposition and seedling recruitment of A. halodendron inhabiting moving sandy lands is very limited. The aim of this study was to examine wind-dispersed(More)
To assess the pedoecological effects of a 23-year old poplar ( Populus simonii Carr.) forest on soil amelioration and vegetation restoration via soil erosion reduction and atmospheric dust retention in a desertified sandy land ecosystem, daily dynamics of wind speed, sand transport and dust deposition rates were monitored over an erosive period from April(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the association of cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors and its impact on the 10-year prevalence of carotid atherosclerosis. METHODS Two surveys for CVD risk factors were carried out in a population consisting of 1323 subjects in Beijing in both 1992 and 2002 and a direct measurement of carotid arteries with B-mode ultrasound(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the quality of life of Chinese malignant patients who treated with the high dose chemoradiotherapy combined with autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT). METHODS The data of 89 patients who answer the EORTC QLQ-C30 Chinese version 3.0 after finished ASCT and disease free were analyzed using SPSS 10.0. RESULTS The score of(More)
A Gram-stain-negative, rod-shaped bacterium, strain F01T, was isolated from leaves of Tamarix chinensis Lour. The isolate grew optimally at 30 °C, at pH 7.0 and with 5.0 % (w/v) NaCl, and showed a high tolerance to manganese, lead, nickel, ferrous ions and copper ions. The major fatty acids were C18 : 1ω7c and C16 : 0, and the predominant respiratory(More)
BACKGROUND High-dose chemotherapy followed by autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) is a promising approach for lymphomas. This study aimed to evaluate the effect of ifosfamide, cisplatin or carboplatin, and etoposide (ICE)-based regimen as a mobilization regimen on relapsed, refractory, or high-risk aggressive lymphoma. METHODS From June 2001 to(More)
2D/3D medical image registration is one of the key technologies in Image-Guided Interventions. Clinicians and researcher's work can be greatly enabled by building a universal platform for 2D and 3D image visualization, processing and analysis. In this paper, we firstly review the currently available software systems for computer aided visualization and(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The relative importance of pre- and post-germination determinants for recruitment of natural plant communities is rarely explored. An annual plant community on moving sandy land was chosen for a case study. Answers to the following questions were sought: (a) Does recruitment of new individuals within the community of annual plants differ(More)
