The Violence Risk Screening-10 is one of the few instruments available for evaluating violence risk in mental health clients during and after hospitalization. This prospective study examined the applicability of this brief instrument with a sample of 289 clients in the 6 months after discharge from a general psychiatric hospital in Beijing. During the(More)
We further study the properties of the back and forth error compensation and correction (BFECC) method for advection equations such as those related to the level set method and for solving Hamilton-Jacobi equations on unstructured meshes. In particular, we develop a new limiting strategy which requires another backward advection in time so that(More)
Most existing animal models for stress involve the simultaneous application of physical and psychological stress factors. In the current study, we described and used a novel psychological stress model (scream sound stress). To study the validity of it, we carried out acute and chronic scream sound stress. First, adult Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats were randomly(More)
Vascular endothelial growth factor and its tyrosine kinase receptors have been identified as key mediators of the regulation of pathologic blood vessel growth and maintenance in the promotion of angiogenesis and tumor growth. Therefore, an alternative approach to destroying tumor endothelium would be to make this tissue particularly sensitive to(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of small, non‑coding, endogenous RNAs that are important in tumor cell biological processes as they regulate gene expression. miR-195 has been demonstrated to be a tumor repressor in numerous types of human cancer. However, the mechanism by which miR‑195 suppresses tumor development remains to be elucidated. The aim of this(More)
Lymphocystis disease virus (LCDV), a virus of Iridoviridae, can infect numerous teleost species, causing serious losses of aquaculture industry, and thus effective ways of prophylaxis and treatment are demanded. Previous studies have shown that phosvitin (Pv) is an antimicrobial agent in zebrafish, and vitellogenin, the precursor of yolk proteins including(More)
SAR analysis performed with a limited set of cyclopentane-containing macrocycles led to the identification of N-[17-[2-(4-isopropylthiazole-2-yl)-7-methoxy-8-methylquinolin-4-yloxy]-13-methyl-2,14-dioxo-3,13-diazatricyclo [13.3.0.0(4,6)]octadec-7-ene-4-carbonyl](cyclopropyl)sulfonamide (TMC435350, 32c) as a potent inhibitor of HCV NS3/4A protease(More)
MicroRNAs are regulators that can play an essential role in tumorigenesis. Although miR-302 families have been suggested to be tumor repressors in human cancer, the mechanism by which they suppress tumor development remains to be defined. In this study, we discover that miR302b suppresses tumor proliferation may due to directly targeting EGFR in human(More)
High-uniform nanowires with diameters down to 50 nm are directly taper-drawn from bulk glasses. Typical loss of these wires goes down to 0.1 dB/mm for single-mode operation. Favorable photonic properties such as high index for tight optical confinement in tellurite glass nanowires and photoluminescence for active devices in doped fluoride and phosphate(More)
From the photofragment translational spectra of C-H symmetric stretch excited CH3I [v1 = 1, v2 = 0] photodissociatioin at 277.5 nm, the vibrational distribution of photofragments CH3 (v1 = 0, v2 = 0), (0,1), (1,0), (1,1) in the I* channel are measured to be 0.02, 0.02, 0.47, 0.25, and those of CH3 (1,0), (1,1) in the I channel are 0.04, 0.05, respectively.(More)
