To investigate the clinical characteristics and histopathological features of kidney disease in elderly patients. We retrospectively analyzed the results of 4,185 consecutive renal biopsies, and 288 patients aged >60 years at the Second Hospital of Jilin University from January 1998 to December 2013 were finally included. All patients had been clinically(More)
The present study was to investigate the protection of resveratrol (RSV) in diabetes associated with kidney inflammation and cell proliferation. Rat mesangial cell and streptozotocin-induced type 1 diabetes mouse model were used. In vitro, RSV attenuated high glucose-induced plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI-1) expression and mesangial cell(More)
Diabetic nephropathy (DN), a common complication associated with type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM), characterized by glomerular mesangial expansion, inflammation, accumulation of extracellular matrix (ECM) protein, and hypertrophy, is the major cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Increasing evidence suggested that p21-dependent glomerular and(More)
Lupus nephritis (LN) is a common secondary glomerular disease with diverse clinical manifestations and pathology. We retrospectively analyzed the clinical manifestations and pathology of 82 hospitalized LN patients (73 females and nine males) during February 2004 to February 2009. The mean age at disease onset of male patients was much younger than female(More)
A reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatographic (RP-HPLC) method for the determination of carotenoids in flue-cured tobacco leaves was developed. Carotenoids were extracted from flue-cured tobacco leaves by acetone-water (90:10, v/v) solution containing 0.1% butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT). Plant proteins were eliminated by adding 0.1 g Pb(Ac)2 and(More)
Transforming growth factor beta1- (TGF-β1-) induced p21-dependent mesangial cell (MC) hypertrophy plays a key role in the pathogenesis of chronic renal diseases including diabetic nephropathy (DN). Increasing evidence demonstrated the role of posttranscriptional modifications (PTMs) in the event; however, the precise regulatory mechanism of histone lysine(More)
This study was designed to specifically compare the clinical and pathological characteristics of male patients from northeast China, who were diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The data from 777 SLE patients were retrospectively analyzed. Among these, 85 patients were male, while 692 were female. Our retrospective analysis of the clinical(More)
To investigate the clinical and histopathological features of non-diabetic renal disease (NDRD) superimposed on diabetic nephropathy (DN) in northeastern Chinese patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D), and compare the changes with those of pure DN and isolated NDRD. Single-center retrospective analysis based on medical records of 273 patients (172(More)
Due to the high therapeutic efficiency and minimum damage towards normal tissues, phototherapy has drawn a great deal of attention in recent decades. Herein, we reported the synthesis of novel phosphopeptide-decorated magnetic nanoparticles (peptide-Fe3O4 nanoparticles), and their usages in photothermal therapy against solid tumor. By using a classical(More)
