BACKGROUND Recent experimental studies provide evidence indicating that manipulation of the mononuclear phagocyte phenotype could be a feasible approach to alter the severity and persistence of pulmonary injury and fibrosis. Mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) has been reported as a target to regulate macrophage polarization. The present work was designed to(More)
BACKGROUND Little attention has been paid to the role of subcortical deep gray matter (SDGM) structures in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM)-induced cognitive impairment, especially hippocampal subfields. Our aims were to assess the in vivo volumes of SDGM structures and hippocampal subfields using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and to test their(More)
BACKGROUND Neuroimaging studies have found that functional changes exist in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). However, the majority of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies in patients with PD are task-related and cross-sectional. This study investigated the functional changes observed in patients with PD, at both baseline and after 2(More)
The present study retrospectively analyzed 170 patients diagnosed with paraquat (PQ) poisoning with the aim of clarifying whether the arterial lactate-time (arterial lactate concentration x time between ingestion and arterial lactate measurement) was a good predictor of mortality in patients with acute PQ poisoning. The results indicated that there was a(More)
BACKGROUND To determine cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) dynamics and morphology in Chiari I malformation (CMI) and assess the response to surgery of the posterior cranial fossa, we examined midsagittal imaging along with anterior cervical 2-3 (AC2-3), posterior cervical 2-3 (PC2-3), and aqueduct CSF flow hydrodynamics in axial imaging by using cine phase-contrast(More)
