The artificial liver support system (ALSS) offers the potential to improve the prognosis of patients with acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF). However, the literature has been inconsistent on its survival benefits. We aimed to conduct a time series-based meta-analysis of randomized clinical trials (RCTs) and observational studies which examined(More)
For patients with acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF), artificial liver support system (ALSS) may help prolong lifespan and function as a bridge to liver transplantation (LT), but data on its long-term benefit are lacking. We conducted this prospective, controlled study to determine the efficacy of ALSS and the predictors of mortality in patients with(More)
A safe and effective delivery system with a submicron emulsion for puerarin was studied. Puerarin submicron emulsion was prepared by a novel complex-phase inversion-high press homogenization technology. The mechanism to reduce the hemolysis side effect of puerarin was studied by blood cell counts in rabbits. The average diameter, zeta potential and(More)
Nano-sized molecularly imprinted polymers for tiliroside were successfully prepared by a precipitation polymerization method. Acrylamide, ethylene glycol dimethacrylate, azobisisobutyronitrile, and acetonitrile/dimethyl sulfoxide were used as functional monomer, cross-linker, initiator, and porogen, respectively. The structural features and morphological(More)
Prognostic evaluation is important for the management of patients with autoimmune hepatitis (AIH). Although some autoantibodies have been associated with disease activity and outcomes, the implication of antibodies to soluble liver antigen (anti-SLA) remains controversial. To conduct a meta-analysis of observational studies which addressed differences in(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the change and effect of SSeCKS (src suppressed c kinase substrates) in the activation of hepatic stellate cells (HSCs). METHODS HSCs were isolated from normal rats, the change of SSeCKS mRNA expression on HSCs culture in vitro was determined using real-time PCR, protein level was determined by Western blot and immunofluorescence(More)
BACKGROUND Acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF) is a major cause of hepatic death in the world, but no population-based studies have evaluated the incidence of ACLF. This study was conducted to determine the incidence and short-term outcomes of ACLF in a region of Eastern China. METHODS In this prospective cross-sectional study, we collected data from(More)
To design a high reliability multilevel grid-connected inverter, a high performance simulation methodology based on Saber is proposed. The simulation methodology with optimized simulation speed can simulate the factors that have significant impacts on the stability and performance of the control system, such as digital delay, dead band, and the quantization(More)
