AIM The objective of this study was to measure and compare the macro- and micronutrient composition of breast milk in urban and suburban lactating mothers living in Shanghai, China. METHODS Primiparous women residing in three urban regions (n= 30/region) and a suburban area of Shanghai (n= 30) were recruited. Breast milk samples were collected 8-10 days(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the neuroprotective effect of memantine, a non-competitive antagonist at the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor, against hypoxic ischemia (HI) by exploring its regulation on the expression and synthesis of heat shock protein 70 (HSP70) gene in neonatal rat models with cerebral HI. METHODS Memantine was intraperitoneally injected at a dose(More)
We investigated in vitro immunomodulatory effects of intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) on cord blood mononuclear cells (CBMNC), macrophages, dendritic cells and CD3(+) T cells were isolated from umbilical venous blood. Cell proliferation used (3)H-TdR incorporation, culture supernatants were assayed for cytokines using ELISA, and surface marker expressions(More)
OBJECTIVES To explore the clinical therapeutic effects and safety of autologous bone marrow mesenchymal stem cell therapy for traumatic brain injury by lumbar puncture. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 97 patients (24 with persistent vegetative state and 73 with disturbance motor activity) who developed a complex cerebral lesion after traumatic brain(More)
Alkylglycerols (AKGs) are ether-linked glycerols derived from shark liver oil and found in small amounts in human milk. Previous studies showed that oral AKGs administration significantly increased the immune response in mice. The aim of the present study was to investigate the in vitro immunomodulatory effect of AKGs on stimulating splenic lymphocyte(More)
