In the present study, the changes of the regulatory T cells (Treg) expression, endotoxin translocation, and the relationships in intestinal lymph nodes were investigated in porcine sepsis induced by severe burns. Flow cytometry, western blot, and Tachypleus amebocyte lysate were applied to study after the burn injury model was built. We found that the(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate therapeutic effectiveness of blood purification (BP) in severely burned patients with sepsis and to assess the prognostic utilities of early serum levels of procalcitonin (PCT), C reactive protein (CRP), brain natriuretic peptide (BNP). One hundred and ninety-five burn sepsis patients admitted in our hospital(More)
BACKGROUND An estimated one million people worldwide die each year from complications of chronic hepatitis B infection (CHB), including liver cancer. A disproportionate number of infections and deaths occur in China. The incidence and mortality of liver cancer in Haimen City is among the highest in China, and in the world. A multi-year citywide campaign was(More)
Atrazine, a member of the 2-chloro-s-triazine family of herbicides, is the most widely used pesticide in the world and often detected in agriculture watersheds. Although it was generally considered as an endocrine disruptor, posing a potential threat to human health, the molecular mechanisms of atrazine effects remain unclear. Using two-dimensional gel(More)
BACKGROUND Accumulated to-date microarray data on ischemia reperfusion injury (IRI) of kidney represent a powerful source for identifying new targets and mechanisms of kidney IRI. In this study, we conducted a meta-analysis of gene expression profiles of kidney IRI in human, pig, rat, and mouse models, using a new scoring method to correct for the bias of(More)
Aging is the predominant risk factor for cardiovascular diseases and contributes to a considerably more severe outcome in patients with acute myocardial infarction. Resveratrol, a polyphenol found in red wine, is a caloric restriction mimetic with potential anti-aging properties which has emerged as a beneficial nutraceutical for patients with(More)
BACKGROUND Although several studies have evaluated the relationship between bisphenol A (BPA) and thyroid functions, their results are not entirely consistent. Little is known about BPA in relation to thyroid volume and structure. METHODS We examined the association of BPA with thyroid volume and thyroid nodules using data from 718 Chinese children living(More)
Atrazine, a pre-emergent herbicide in the chloro-s-triazine family, has been widely used in crop lands and often detected in agriculture watersheds, which is considered as a potential threat to human health. Although atrazine and its metabolites showed an elevated incidence of mammary tumors in female Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats, no molecular evidence was(More)
