This study evaluates 23 (9 Chinese and 14 non-Chinese) randomized controlled trials for efficacy and side effects of Chinese herbal medicine on menopausal symptoms. Menopause was diagnosed according to western medicine criteria in all studies while seven Chinese studies and one non-Chinese study further stratified the participants using traditional Chinese(More)
A Gram-positive, moderately halotolerant, rod-shaped bacterium, designated YIM 94025T, was isolated from a soil sample from a salt lake in Xinjiang province, north-west China. Strain YIM 94025T was observed to grow at 25–45 °C (optimum 37 °C), 0–22 % NaCl (optimum 2–10 %) and pH 6.0–9.0 (optimum pH 8.0). Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene(More)
Forest growth models have attracted a lot of research interests since they are useful in evaluating effects of management practices and climate changes on water, carbon, and nutrients dynamics in terrestrial ecosystems. However, successful application of a forest growth model requires accurate calibration of model parameters. Traditionally the calibration(More)
A Gram-negative, pink-coloured, rod-shaped, motile bacterium, designated YIM 93097T, was isolated from the desert soil collected from Xinjiang province of China. Strain YIM 93097T was found to grow at 20–45 °C (optimum 28–37 °C), pH 5.0–7.0 (optimum pH 7.0) and 0–8 % (w/v) NaCl (optimum 1 %, w/v). Based on 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity studies, it(More)
A Gram-positive, facultative anaerobe microorganism, designated YIM 93067T, was isolated from a salt lake in Xinjiang Province of China and subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic study. Strain YIM 93067T grew at 5–40 °C, 0–8.0 % (w/v) NaCl and pH 7.0–9.0. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that the organism belongs to the genus(More)
