Artemisinin and its derivatives exhibit potent immunosuppressive activity. The aim of this study was to investigate the suppressive effects of SM905, a new water-soluble artemisinin derivative, on T lymphocytes both in vitro and in vivo, and explore its potential mode of action. The results showed that SM905 had a high inhibitory activity in Concanavalin A(More)
OBJECTIVE To summarize the clinical characteristics, diagnosis, treatments and outcomes of perinatal autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease. METHODS The clinical data of one case with infantile polycystic kidney disease diagnosed in perinatal stage and the reports of 11 cases seen in the past 15 years searched in Pubmed, OVID and Elsevier and CNKI,(More)
Chlorogenic acid and its related compounds are abundant plant polyphenols that have a diverse antiviral activity. In this study, HepG2.2.15 cells and duck hepatitis B virus infection model were used as in vitro and in vivo models to evaluate their anti-HBV activity. In the cell model, all the three compounds inhibited HBV-DNA replication as well as HBsAg(More)
The reversible S-adenosyl-l-homocysteine hydrolase inhibitor DZ2002 [methyl 4-(adenin-9-yl)-2-hydroxybutanoate] suppresses antigen-induced-specific immune responses, particularly type 1 helper T cell (Th1)-type responses. Experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) is thought to be a Th1 cell-mediated inflammatory demyelinating autoimmune disease model(More)
A series of 1-isopropylsulfonyl-2-amine benzimidazole derivatives were synthesized and evaluated for their anti-hepatitis B virus (HBV) activity and cytotoxicity in the HepG2.2.15 cell line. In general, these derivatives are potent HBV inhibitors (IC(50)<4 microM) with high selectivity indices (SIs>40). Compounds 5b-e, g, j, and 9a were among the most(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the effects of extensively hydrolyzed protein formula (eHF) on the feeding and growth in preterm infants through a multicenter controlled clinical study. METHODS Preterm infants admitted to eight upper first-class hospitals in China between February 2012 and December 2013 were randomly selected. They were divided into two observation(More)
To assess the incidence of, predisposing factors for, and the rates and relative risks of mortality from acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) in pediatric patients. A prospective study in 12 consecutive months from 2004 to 2005 in 25 pediatric intensive care units (PICUs). ARDS was diagnosed according to the 1994 American–European Consensus Conference(More)
Published data on the association between mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase kinase 1 (MAP3K1) gene rs889312 polymorphism and breast cancer risk are inconclusive. To derive a more precise estimation of the relationship, a meta-analysis was performed. Crude ORs with 95% CIs were used to assess the strength of association between them. A total of seven(More)
A retrospective cohort study on nosocomial infections (NI) in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) was performed in the Children's Hospital of Zhejiang University, Hangzhou district, China. The most common infection site was pneumonia and bloodstream infection. Low admission age, long NICU stay, and mechanical ventilation were significant risk factors(More)
OBJECTIVE Severe respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) caused by pulmonary surfactant (PS) deficiency is described not only in preterm infants but also in term babies delivered via caesarean section, especially before the onset of labour (elective caesarean section). Once RDS of term neonates happened, mechanical ventilation is needed, and the infants were at(More)
