BACKGROUND Depression is a prevalent complex psychiatric disorder and its pathophysiological mechanism is not yet well understood. We investigated the metabolic profiling of urine samples from depression model rats to find potential disease biomarkers and research pathology of depression. METHODS An animal model of depression was produced by chronic(More)
A metabonomic study on biochemical changes in the serum of type 2 diabetes mellitus patients after the treatment of metformin hydrochloride was performed. (1)H NMR and UPLC/MS were used to generate metabolic fingerprints for the metabonomic analysis of serum samples obtained from 20 type 2 diabetes mellitus patients without any drugs treatment and 15 type 2(More)
Depression is a common and highly debilitating psychiatric illness. However, the pathophysiology of depression is not fully understood. In this study Sprague-Dawley rats were exposed to chronic unpredictable mild stress (CUMS) to induce depression. A metabonomic study on plasma of CUMS-induced depressive rats was performed to research the pathologic(More)
Dogs play an important role in rabies transmission throughout the world. In addition to the severe human rabies situation in China, spillover of rabies virus from dogs in recent years has caused rabies outbreaks in sheep, cattle and pigs, showing that there is an increasing threat to other domestic animals. Two livestock rabies outbreaks were caused by dogs(More)
BACKGROUND Subtrochanteric oblique osteotomy (SOO) has been widely used to reconstruct highly dislocated hips in uncemented total hip arthroplasty. The occurrence of complications can be attributed to the instability of the osteotomy region. The aim of this study was to evaluate the initial stability of SOO in uncemented total hip arthroplasty. MATERIAL(More)
BACKGROUND Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) in adults with severe pain and disability is best treated by total hip arthroplasty (THA). The purpose of this study was to retrospectively evaluate the outcomes of subtrochanteric shortening osteotomy combined with THA using S-ROM stem for those severe patients with a special focus on the effect of two(More)
Reconnection of the self-generated magnetic fields in laser-plasma interaction was first investigated experimentally by Nilson et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 97, 255001 (2006)] by shining two laser pulses a distance apart on a solid target layer. An elongated current sheet (CS) was observed in the plasma between the two laser spots. In order to more closely model(More)
A self-consistent model of the ambipolar diffusion of electrons and ions in dusty plasmas accounting for the local electric fields, the dust grain charging process, and the interaction of the plasma particles with the dust grains and neutrals is presented. The dependencies of the diffusion coefficient on the interaction of the electrons and ions with the(More)
RATIONALE Simultaneous bilateral mid-clavicle fracture with unilateral dislocation of the acromioclavicular (AC) joint is an extremely rare injury combination. PATIENT CONCERNS Herein, we report a case of polytrauma in a 42 years old female following a road traffic accident. DIAGNOSES The radiographs showed the fractures in bilateral middle third of the(More)
