OBJECTIVE To compare clinical therapeutic effects of acupuncture, moxibustion, acupuncture plus moxibustion at Weiwanxiashu (EX-B 3) on diabetes. METHODS Seventy-nine cases of type 2 diabetes were randomly divided into 3 groups: acupuncture group (A), moxibustion group (B) and acupuncture plus moxibustion group (C) and Weiwanxiashu (EX-B 3) was selected(More)
Multimedia Mining is a young but challenging subfield in Data Mining. There are not unified conclusions in the concept, content and methods of Multimedia Mining, Multimedia mining architecture and framework has to be further studied. Based on these, it introduces a appropriate data mining model based on multimedia database; it has analyzed the methods which(More)
Because no single test measures disability in rats with middle cerebral artery occlusion/traumatic brain injury (MCAo/TBI), multiple tests are needed to assess the effect of bone marrow stromal cell (MSC) on functional recovery. Testing the treatment effect on each outcome at the 0.05 level without adjusting for multiple outcomes can increase type I error.(More)
Wnt1, initially described as a modulator of embryonic development, has recently been discovered to exert cytoprotective effects in cellular models of several diseases, including Parkinson's disease (PD). We, therefore, examined the neuroprotective effects of exogenous Wnt1 on dopaminergic SH-SY5Y cells treated with 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA). Here, we show(More)
To evaluate the effects of the Toll/interleukin-1 receptor domain-containing adaptor-inducing interferon-beta (TRIF) on immune responses induced by DNA vaccines, mice were immunized with the eukaryotic expression plasmid pcDNA/E2 encoding classical swine fever virus (CSFV) E2 alone or in combination with the TRIF genetic adjuvant. Immune responses were(More)
Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) infection has been shown to contribute to vascular disease through the induction of angiogenesis. However, the role of microRNA in angiogenesis induced by HCMV infection remains unclear. The present study was thus designed to explore the potential effect of miR-199a-5p on angiogenesis and to investigate the underlying mechanism(More)
Human cytomegalovirus(HCMV) infection has been shown to contribute to vascular disease through the induction of angiogenesis. However, the role of microRNA in angiogenesis induced by HCMV infection remains unclear. The present study was thus designed to explore the potential effect of miR-1217 on angiogenesis and to disclose the underlying mechanism in(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of wearing different kinds of masks on the ear canal temperature, heart rate, clothing microclimate, and subjective perception of discomfort. Ten subjects performed intermittent exercise on a treadmill while wearing the protective masks in a climatic chamber controlled at an air temperature of 25 degrees(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Atherosclerosis plays an important role in stroke. A microbiological infection has been suggested to be involved in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis, in particular the human cytomegalovirus (HCMV). The objective of this study was to determine the association between HCMV infection and atherosclerosis of the internal carotid arteries in(More)
Using different models of focal cerebral ischemia, the temporal and spatial rules of metabolism and energy changes in the post-ischemia brain tissue were measured by proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1HMRS) to provide valuable information for judging the prognosis of acute focal cerebral ischemia and carrying out effective therapy. Nine healthy(More)
