This study was undertaken to investigate the neuroprotective effects of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) on 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA)-induced rats with Parkinson's disease. rTMS was given to rats with Parkinson's disease induced by 6-OHDA, daily for 4 weeks to examine the protective effects. Rotational test showed that rTMS significantly(More)

A least-connection algorithm based on variable weight is presented in this paper in order to satisfy the requirement of multimedia transmission, which is based on the analysis of the existing cluster architecture, algorithms of the load distribution and balancing of network nodes. A validating trial has been performed and the results show that our algorithm(More)
Memory impairment is the most common symptom in patients with Alzheimer’s disease. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the memory enhancing effects of P7C3, a recently identified compound with robust proneurogenic and neuroprotective effects, on the cognitive impairment induced by scopolamine, a muscarinic acetylcholine receptor antagonist. Different(More)
The neural fate commitment of pluripotent stem cells requires the repression of extrinsic inhibitory signals and the activation of intrinsic positive transcription factors. However, how these two events are integrated to ensure appropriate neural conversion remains unclear. In this study, we showed that Pou3f1 is essential for the neural differentiation of(More)
AF9 mutations have been implicated in human neurodevelopmental diseases and murine Af9 mediates histone methylation during cortical neuron generation. However, AF9 function and related mechanisms in human neurodevelopment remain unknown. Here we show that AF9 is necessary and sufficient for human embryonic stem cell (hESC) neural differentiation and(More)
OBJECTIVES Human amniotic epithelial (HAE) cells are formed from amnioblasts, separated from the epiblast at about the eighth day after fertilization. In the present study, we attempt to investigate the effects of intracerebroventricular transplantation of HAE cells on Parkinson's disease (PD) rats. METHODS A PD rat model was induced by 6-OHDA injections.(More)
N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NMDA) has been increasingly implicated in the formation and maintenance of various forms of behavioral and synaptic plasticity. Recent evidence has linked striatal NMDA function to the adverse effects of long-term dopaminergic treatment in Parkinson's disease. The subcellular distribution and phosphorylation of NMDA subunit,(More)
The etiology of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is not clear and cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is often associated with IBD patients. The etiologic link between IBD and CMV infection needs to be studied. The objective of the present study is to investigate the prevalence and risk factors of CMV in a cohort of IBD patients from Central China. Two hundred(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of the systemic administration of high dose erythropoietin (EPO) in a 6‑hydroxydopamine (6‑OHDA)‑ induced rat model. Rats were divided into 7 groups. Groups 1‑4 were administered daily EPO doses of 0; 2,500; 5,000 and 10,000 U/kg via intraperitoneal injection (i.p.) for 5 days. The EPO(More)
BACKGROUND Levodopa is the gold standard in the treatment of Parkinson's disease (PD). However, long-term levodopa replacement therapy is accompanied by abnormal involuntary movements (AIMs), known as levodopa-induced dyskinesia (LID). Until now, the precise mechanisms of LID were only partially understood. Previous studies have shown that continuous(More)
