The purpose of this study was to characterize the functional consequences of the 393T>C polymorphism of the GNAS1 gene in vivo. PCR-RFLP assays were used to identify GNAS1 and beta 1-adrenoceptor genotypes. The heart rate (HR), blood pressure, left ventricular fractional shortening (LVFS), and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) were determined in(More)
OBJECTIVE The application of dexmedetomidine in patient sedation is generally accepted, though its clinical application is limited because of the lack of information detailing the specific properties among diverse populations of patients. The aim of this study was to compare the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic characteristics of dexmedetomidine between(More)
The aims of this study were to investigate the effect of quercetin on CYP3A activity in vivo. An open, randomized, 2-period crossover experiment was performed in 18 healthy male volunteers. Genotyped data were available from a total of 165 participants. The allelic frequency was 52.5%. Every volunteer ingested orally 500 mg quercetin or placebo once a day(More)
BACKGROUND Platinum-based chemotherapy is the main treatment method for lung cancer patients. The genetic polymorphisms of Wnt-inducible signaling pathway protein 1 (WISP1) were reported to be associated with the development of diverse lung diseases. In this study, we aimed to investigate the relationship of WISP1 genetic polymorphisms with lung cancer(More)
BACKGROUND New conceptualizations of depression have emphasized the role of the kynurenine pathway (KP) in the pathogenesis of postpartum depressive symptoms (PDS). Kynurenine 3-monooxygenase (KMO) is a rate-limiting enzyme of the KP, where it catalyzes the conversion of kynurenine (KYN) to 3-hydroxykynurenine (3-HK). Previous work indicates that KMO is(More)
This study explored the role of SLCO1B1, ABCB1, and CHRNA1 gene polymorphisms on the efficacy and duration of action of rocuronium in Chinese patients. Two hundred seven unrelated Chinese patients scheduled for elective surgery were recruited, and 200 completed the study. Their ABCB1, SLCO1B1, and CHRNA1 genotypes were determined. Demographic and clinical(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of the µ-opioid receptor gene (OPRM1) A118G polymorphism on the requirement for post-operative fentanyl analgesia in patients undergoing radical gastrectomy. One hundred and twenty-eight gastric cancer patients scheduled to undergo radical gastrectomy under general anesthesia were enrolled in the study.(More)
Background. We aimed to investigate the distributive characteristics of SLC22A1 rs594709 and SLC47A1 rs2289669 polymorphisms and their influence on metformin efficacy in Chinese T2DM patients. Methods. The distributions of SLC22A1 rs594709 and SLC47A1 rs2289669 polymorphisms were determined in 267 T2DM patients and 182 healthy subjects. Subsequently, 53(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the feasibility and dosage of tramadol combined with fentanyl in awake endotracheal intubation. METHODS Using Dixon's up-and-down sequential design, the study enrolled patients from each of the 20-49, 50-60 and 70-and-above age groups scheduled for elective surgery under general anesthesia. The feasibility and dosage of tramadol(More)
OBJECTIVES The objectives of this study were to construct a population pharmacokinetics model for dexmedetomidine used in Chinese adult patients with spinal anesthesia and to identify the key factors affecting the pharmacokinetics of dexmedetomidine. METHODS A total of 34 subjects (elderly group: n = 15; young group: n = 19) undergoing spinal anesthesia(More)
