Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection is a major cause of severe lower respiratory illness in infants and young children, but the underlying mechanisms responsible for viral pathogenesis have not been fully elucidated. To date, no drugs or vaccines have been employed to improve clinical outcomes for RSV-infected patients. In this paper, we report that(More)
OBJECTIVE To review the experimental drugs for the treatment of autoimmune myocarditis. DATA SOURCES The literatures published in English about different kinds of experimental drugs based on different therapeutic mechanisms for the treatment of autoimmune myocarditis were obtained from PubMed from 2002 to 2013. STUDY SELECTION Original articles(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine if mechanical ventilation with positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) combined with intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) provided a better outcome than IABP alone for the treatment of cardiogenic shock after acute myocardial infarction in patients aged > 60 years. METHODS This was a retrospective analysis of data from patients in(More)
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a major pathogen in infants and the elderly, causing pneumonia and bronchiolitis. Despite decades of research, to date there is still no approved RSV vaccine available. In this study, we developed RSV virus-like particle (VLP) vaccines containing an RSV fusion (F) and/or attachment (G) protein with Newcastle disease(More)
We study the scaling law of lifetime of ordinary clustering time-hopping impulse radio ultra-wideband (TH-IR UWB) sensor networks which n sensor nodes are distributed according to a Poisson point process. In this paper, we study the random network of a general node density λ λ∈[1,n], rather than only study either random dense network(More)
Many SOA applications are now migrating to cloud servers, due to cloud's low cost provision, elasticity for growth, and better availability. Although cloud service providers have implemented reliable management system for their infrastructure, hybrid cloud users often lack easy monitoring and diagnosis facilities to discover the root cause of end-to-end QoS(More)
Cardiac autoimmune reaction takes part in myocarditis, dilated cardiomyopathy and heart failure. Existing literature has confirmed that the occurrence of cardiomyopathy belongs to mitochondrial diseases and is related to the oxidative respiratory chain subunit. The special structure of iron-sulfur protein (ISP) is responsible for the oxidative stress in(More)
Human adenoviruses (HAdVs) are known to cause a broad spectrum of diseases in pediatric and adult patients. As this time, there is no specific therapy for HAdV infection. This study used reverse genetics (RG) to successfully rescue a recombinant influenza virus, termed rFLU/HAdV, with the HAdV hexon protein antigenic epitope sequence inserted in the(More)
