The objective of the present study was to evaluate the correlation between sympathetic nerve activation and inflammatory response in the acute stage of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) in a canine perforating model. SAH was induced by perforation of the basilar artery with the use of a microcatheter via the femoral artery in 20 mongrel dogs. Hemodynamic(More)
The muscle is the main portion of fish that is consumed by humans. Copper (Cu) can induce oxidative damage in fish muscle. However, the effects of Cu exposure on the muscle antioxidant system and molecular patterns and preventive measures against these effects remain unclear. In this study, ROS production, enzymatic and mRNA levels of antioxidant enzymes(More)
Hyperperfusion syndrome (HPS) is a rare but potentially devastating postoperative complication developing after endarterectomy and carotid stenting. Limited information is available about this complication. The aim of this study was to assess the incidence of HPS and risk factors leading to its development. We retrospectively reviewed 178 consecutive cases(More)
AIM To evaluate the relationship between vascular invasion and microvessel density (MVD) of tissue and micrometastasis in blood. METHODS Vascular invasion was detected by both hematoxylin and eosin staining and immunohistochemiscal staining. Blood samples were collected from 17 patients with vascular invasion and 29 patients without vascular invasion and(More)
This study explored the possible preventive effects of dietary arginine on copper (Cu)-induced tight junction mRNA expression changes, apoptosis and antioxidant responses in the gills of young grass carp (Ctenopharyngodon idella). The results indicated that exposure to 0.7 mg/L (11.01 μmol/L) Cu for 96 h induced the production of reactive oxygen species(More)
Intestinal mucosal immune components and mRNA levels of inflammatory cytokines, tight junction proteins, antioxidant enzymes and related signalling molecules in young grass carp (Ctenopharyngodon idellus) under dietary manganese (Mn) deficiency or excess were investigated. Fish were fed the diets containing graded levels of Mn [3.65-27.86 mg Mn kg(-1) diet](More)
This study aimed to investigate the effects of threonine (Thr) on the digestive and absorptive ability, proliferation and differentiation of enterocytes, and gene expression of juvenile Jian carp (Cyprinus carpio var. Jian). First, seven isonitrogenous diets containing graded levels of Thr (7.4-25.2 g/kg diet) were fed to the fishes for 60 days. Second,(More)
This study was conducted to evaluate the effects of dietary isoleucine (Ile) on the immune response, antioxidant status and gene expression in the head kidney of juvenile Jian carp (Cyprinus carpio var. Jian). Six semi-purified isonitrogenous diets (4.2, 7.0, 9.5, 11.9, 13.9 and 16.9 g Ile kg(-1) diet) were fed to Jian carp (6.9 ± 0.03 g) for 60 days. The(More)
The prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) is reported to be 10.8-11.8% of the Chinese population. With economic development and longer life expectancy, the spectrum of CKD etiology has kept changing. Primary glomerular diseases (PGD) are still the most common renal diseases in China. To investigate the changing pattern of PGD in China, we(More)
Protein tyrosine phosphatase 1B (PTP1B), a member of the superfamily of protein tyrosine phosphatases, has been implicated in cancer pathogenesis. However, the role of PTP1B in the development of gastric cancer is unclear. The purpose of this study was to clarify the expression pattern and role of PTP1B in the gastric cancer. The expression of PTP1B in(More)
