Clinical manifestations and epidemiological characteristics of Lyme disease in Hailin county, Heilongjiang Province, China have been reported. The clinical picture of erythema chronicum migrans (ECM) is variable. ECM in the form of annular erythematous patch is uncommon. It is an extensive and indurated lesion. In some instances, a vesicle or necrosis(More)
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a widely used method to obtain high quality medical image of the brain. Post-processing MR images with segmentation algorithms enhances the visualization and measurement of soft tissues and lesions. However, the conventional algorithms are not perfect and there are still some regions which are not partitioned accurately.(More)
The role of killer Ig-like receptors (KIR) in SCT was analyzed. A total of 75 Chinese patients were transplanted with T-depleted hematopoietic stem cells from unrelated donors. Among the 75 donor–recipient pairs, 60 were HLA 10/10 matched and 15 had some mismatches at HLA-C. Transplants from KIR haplotype B/x group donors showed significantly higher overall(More)
Previous study of brain &#x201C;potential of hydrogen&#x201D; (pH) was conducted in single-voxel <sup>31</sup>P magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy. In this study, we explored the feasibility of mapping brain pH by using multivoxel <sup>31</sup>P MR spectroscopy. Firstly, phantom studies were carried out with a GE 3T MR system using 2D PRESSCSI sequence.(More)

OBJECTIVE To explore the impact of IL10-592 (rs1800872) single nucleic acid polymorphism (SNP) on the prognosis of HLA matched unrelated hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). METHODS The polymorphism of IL10-592 in 104 recipient-donor pairs and 100 healthy volunteers was analyzed with sequence based typing (SBT). RESULTS When the genotype of(More)
Involvement of adult Ixodes persulcatus ticks in the transmission of Lyme disease in Hailin County, Heilongjiang Province, China, is reported. In 1986 from April through August adult I. persulcatus was the dominant tick in this endemic area with an infection rate of 43% for the Lyme disease spirochaete, Borrelia burgdorferi. The incidence of Lyme disease(More)
OBJECTIVE Successful allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) requires reconstitution normal T-cell immunity. Measurement of T-cell receptor excision circles (TRECs) and T-cell receptor beta (TCRBV) CDR3 repertoire is a means of quantifying recent thymic T-cell production and reflecting antigen-specific T-cell clones proliferation.
