BACKGROUND High mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) is an inflammatory mediator involved into the advanced stage of systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS), and is over-expressed in bacterial sepsis and hemorrhagic shock. Recently, it has been found that the HMGB1 was abnormally expressed in induced sputum and plasma of asthmatic patients. However, the(More)
Beta-arrestin 2 has been shown to participate in the pathogenesis of asthma by inducing Th2 cell migration to the lungs. Whether beta-arrestin 2 regulates cytokine production of CD4+ T cells is still unknown. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of beta-arrestin 2 on the cytokine production of CD4+ T lymphocytes and the mechanism(More)
This study indicates that brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) can promote young cardiac microvascular endothelial cells (CMECs) to migrate via the activation of the BDNF-TrkB-FL-PI3K/Akt pathway, which may benefit angiogenesis after myocardial infarction (MI). However, the ageing of CMECs led to changes in the expression of receptor Trk isoforms in(More)
Although atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) has been well recognized for its role in the regulation of volume-pressure homeostasis in cardiovascular system, its impact on respiratory system, particularly on the pathogenesis of acute allergic asthma, is yet to be elucidated. In the present report, we induced mice with OVA for onset of acute allergic asthma(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic persistent asthma is characterized by airway remodeling, in which epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) may play a significant role. Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), a steroid hormone and testosterone analog, is considered as an important immunomodulating hormone. However, its role in EMT remains unclear. We sought to investigate whether(More)
Based on the parallel-plate bounded-wave simulator design principle, this paper give a kind of small parallel-plate bounded-wave simulator model with typical structure, and do some simulation on its inner space electric-field distribution. Firstly, a small parallel-plate bounded-wave simulator with typical structure is designed. By using the double(More)
To explore the clinical manifestations, diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary thromboembolism associated with protein C (PC)/protein S (PS) deficiency. Two male patients 29 and 26 years old diagnosed with PC deficiency and/or PS deficiency were retrospectively analyzed and related literatures were reviewed. The most common symptoms were pain in the lower(More)
Network security is a complex systematic project. The existing safety assessment methods have some shortcomings such as feasibility, smaller application scope, man-made interference and so on. The simulation results show that, using the established evaluation model for network security evaluation is simple, eliminate the interference of human factors, and(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the change of peripheral blood Th17 cells and relationship between the severity and Th17 cells in patients with acute asthma. METHODS We recruited patients with mild acute asthma(n=10) and severe acute asthma(n=10), and healthy volunteers(n=10). T-lymphocytes were collected from the peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC). Flow(More)
