The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of supplemental chromium (Cr) in the form of chromium picolinate (CrPic) on swine growth performance, meat quality, and protein deposition in skeletal muscle. Forty-eight piglets were divided into three groups randomly, fed with three different dietary levels of Cr (common basal feedstuff supplemented(More)
Tylvalosin, a new broad-spectrum, third-generation macrolides, may exert a variety of pharmacological activities. Here, we report on its anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory activity in RAW 264.7 macrophages and mouse treated with lipopolysaccharide (LPS) as well as piglet challenged with porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV).(More)
Renal artery aneurysm (RAA) is a rare event that may cause life-threatening rupture or renal function-threatening embolization. We report here a case of eccentric RAA involving the left upper pole renal artery and its three bifurcations, which was treated by stent plus coil embolization; the patient exhibited no renal insufficiency at 1-year follow-up. This(More)
High temperature is one of the key environmental stressors affecting broiler production efficiency and meat yield. Knowledge of broiler self-regulation mechanisms under heat stress is important for the modern scale of poultry breeding. In the present study, the SWATH strategy was employed to investigate the temporal response of the broiler liver to heat(More)
BACKGROUND Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a life-threatening condition. A number of studies reported the association between methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) C677T polymorphism and AAA risk, but substantial controversial findings were observed and the strength of the association remains unclear. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of feeding Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) rice expressing the Cry1Ab/1Ac protein on broiler chicken. The genetically modified (GM) Bt rice was compared with the corresponding non-GM rice regarding performance of feeding groups, their health status, relative organ weights, biochemical serum parameters and(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the outcome after endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) in single center. METHODS A total of 711 AAA patients treated by EVAR in Department of Vascular Surgery, People's Liberation Army General Hospital and met the inclusion criteria from January 2004 to June 2014 were followed-up and analyzed. There(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the early effectiveness of total percutaneous endovascular aneurysm repair (TPEVAR) in treating asymptomatic abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAAA) by comparing with surgical femoral cutdown endovascular aneurysm repair (SFCEVAR). METHODS Between January 2010 and May 2011, 41 cases of AAAA were treated with TPEVAR in 26 cases (TPEVAR(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to determine the early mortality and major complications of acute complicated type B aortic dissection (ACBD) after thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR). METHODS Twenty-six consecutive patients with ACBD who underwent TEVAR were included. Clinical indications before TEVAR and in-hospital mortality and major(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the perioperative outcome between the endovascular repair (EVAR) and open surgical repair (OSR) for ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm. METHODS From January 2006 to January 2013, totally 66 patients with ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (rAAA) treated by surgery were retrospectively analyzed in Department of vascular surgery,(More)
