BACKGROUND The effects of lanthanum carbonate (LC) vs. calciumbased phosphate binders in dialysis patients have been a matter of debate. METHODS We electronically searched PubMed, Embase, CENTRAL, and CBM for all randomized controlled trials comparing LC with calcium-based phosphate binders in adult dialysis patients. Quality assessment was performed(More)
The present study investigated the association of thyroid dysfunction (TD) with the distribution of chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in untreated patients. A total of 1,012 cases of HCV-infected patients were collected from different regions, of which 209 patients demonstrated a type of TD (chronic thyroiditis complicated with hyperthyroidism,(More)
An intensive and systematic investigation had been carried out on the Delta(1)-dehydrogenation of cortisone acetate (CA) to prednisone acetate (PA) by Arthrobacter simplex TCCC 11037 in the presence of native and modified beta-cyclodextrins (beta-CDs). The biotransformation was improved through the formation of the host-guest inclusion complex between CA(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the pro-angiogenic effect of four Chinese medicines and three herbal prescriptions, screen the effective components from them. METHODS Chicken chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) model was employed to observe the pro-angiogenic activities of Angelicae Sinensis Radix, Salviae Miltiorrhizae Radix, Notoginseng Radix, Astragali Radix,(More)
The basic way of invasion and metastasis of lung cancer is that the tumor cells shed in the extracellular matrix, invade the basement membrane and the surrounding tissue, infiltrate into blood flow, and then survive and transport via the blood flow. After having been extravasated, migrated and arrested in the distant site, they finally form a metastatic(More)
Bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSCs) are considered to be a potential therapy for end-stage liver disease. However, the therapeutic mechanism of BM-MSCs remains unclear. The aim of the current study was to investigate the role of paracrine signaling in BM‑MSCs in liver cirrhosis in vitro. Human BM‑MSCs and hepatic stellate cells (HSCs) were(More)
Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis is one of major pulmonary fungal diseases. Although it is not a rare in clinical settings,the misdiagnosis rate is high and the treatment effectiveness remains unstable. This article reviews the recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of this disease.
OBJECTIVE To investigate the distribution of HCV genotypes in Chinese Han population with chronic hepatitis C (CHC). METHODS This randomized multicenter study included 1 014 CHC patients from 28 hospitals in different regions of China. SPSS 20.0 was applied to analyze the relationship among region, HCV genotype, gender and the replication level of(More)
Genetic variations at the interleukin 28B (IL-28B) locus and chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotypes are significant factors in predicting the therapeutic outcome for HCV infection. The present study aimed to determine the geographical distribution of HCV genotypes and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with IL-28B in Chinese patients(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effect of Cornus Officinalis total glycosides (COTG) and Cornus polysaccharides (CP) on myocardial mitochondria and expression levels of glycogen synthase kinase-3β (GSK-3β) of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) rats. METHODS The AMI rat model was established by ligating the left anterior descending branch of coronary artery. Rats(More)
