OBJECTIVES To examine abnormal fertilization phenomena in blastomeres of embryos generated from conventional IVF and ICSI displaying a single pronucleus at the zygote stage. METHODS 132 embryos from monopronuclear zygotes (1PN) generated from conventional IVF and ICSI were examined by FISH (fluorescent in situ hybridization) with X, Y dual color(More)
Sulfamethoxazole (SMX), a typical sulfonamide antibiotic, has been widely detected in secondary wastewater effluents and surface waters. In this work we investigated the oxidative degradation of SMX by commonly used oxidants of chlorine, ozone and permanganate. Chlorine and ozone were shown to be more effective for the removal of SMX (0.05-5.0mg/L), as(More)
Algae in surface water have been a long-term issue all over the world, due to their adverse influence on drinking water treatment process as well as drinking water quality. The algae removal by electro-coagulation-flotation (ECF) technology was investigated in this paper. The results indicated that aluminum was an excellent electrode material for algae(More)
To trace the source of the avian H7N9 viruses, we collected 99 samples from 4 live poultry markets and the family farms of 3 patients in Hangzhou city of Zhejiang province, China. We found that almost all positive samples came from chickens and ducks in live poultry markets. These results strongly suggest that the live poultry markets are the major source(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the present study was to investigate the combined effects of nano-hydroxyapatite and Galla chinensis on remineralisation of initial enamel lesion. METHODS Bovine enamel blocks with in vitro produced initial lesion were used. The lesions were subjected to a pH-cycling regime for 12 days. Each daily cycle includes 4 x 3 min application(More)
AIMS To address the underlying mechanisms by which curcumin facilitates M2 phenotype polarization of macrophages and its roles in the protective effects during experimental autoimmune myocarditis (EAM). METHODS AND RESULTS The expression of classic M2 markers, including macrophage mannose receptor (MMR), arginase-1 (Arg-1) and peroxisome(More)
Electro-coagulation-flotation (ECF) is one of the most promising technologies that offers an attractive alternative to conventional coagulation and flotation. In this study, the effectiveness and mechanisms of algae removal by ECF process using aluminum electrodes was investigated in the presence of Cl(-) ions. The results showed that the addition of Cl(-)(More)
AIMS This study is to evaluate the spinal cord motor function in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD). METHODS In this study, 40 patients were diagnosed to have AD. The stages of dementia were evaluated using Mini Mental State Examination and Activity of Daily Living scale. According to the levels of movement disturbances, the patient group was further(More)
OBJECTIVE The systematic pro-inflammatory responses after percutaneous coronary intervention with drug-eluting stents (DES) remain poorly defined. Therefore, we compared the systematic pro-inflammatory state of circulating mononuclear cells (MNCs) between DES and bare metal stent (BMS) implantation. METHODS Patients with indications for treatment with(More)
This paper presents a new method to construct C polynomial surface to the scattered data points. The given data points are triangulated into triangle networks, and a C piecewise quadric interpolant patch is constructed at the adjacent region of each point. For the different cases of the number of adjacent points, two different algorithms are used for(More)
