In this paper we use the information theoretic Infomap algorithm (Rosvall and Bergstrom in Proc Natl Acad Sci 105(4):1118–1123, 2008) iteratively in order to cluster the direct citation network of the Astro Data Set (publications in 59 astrophysical journals between 2003 and 2010.) We obtain 22 clusters of documents from the giant component of the network(More)
The therapeutic effect of Fe2O3 nanoparticles combined with magnetic fluid hyperthermia (MFH) on human hepatocarcinoma SMMC-7721 cells in vitro and xenograft liver cancer in nude mice is studied. We examined growth and apoptosis of SMMC-7721 cells treated with MFH containing Fe2O3 nanoparticles at various concentrations (2, 4, 6, and 8 g/liter) for 30-60(More)
BACKGROUND Previous research has shown that electro-acupuncture (EA) may be effective for functional constipation. We report a protocol for a randomized controlled trial using EA to confirm the efficacy and safety for severe chronic functional constipation. METHODS/DESIGN This is a randomized, controlled trial. A total of 1,034 patients will be randomly(More)
Placebo control is a useful method for determining the efficacy of a therapy. In acupuncture researches, the preferred method for placebo control is acupuncture using a placebo needle that has a blunt tip and achieves no skin penetration. We performed a crossover study to validate the blinding effect of a new type of placebo needle. Sixty volunteers were(More)
The aims of this study were to investigate FOXP1 expression in nodal and extranodal diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and its association with the subclassification and other clinicopathologic parameters of DLBCL. Expression of FOXP1, CD10, Bcl6, MUM1, and Bcl2 was detected by immunohistochemistry on tissue microarray sections. The Kaplan-Meier method(More)
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) investigates the clinical diagnosis and treatment regularities in a typical schema of personalized medicine, which means that individualized patients with same diseases would obtain distinct diagnosis and optimal treatment from different TCM physicians. This principle has been recognized and adhered by TCM clinical(More)
Software APIs often contain too many methods and parameters for developers to memorize or navigate effectively. Instead, developers resort to finding answers through online search engines and systems such as Stack Overflow. However, the process of finding and integrating a working solution is often very time-consuming. Though code search engines have(More)
Background Acupuncture has been used for chronic constipation, but evidence for its effectiveness remains scarce. Objective To determine the efficacy of electroacupuncture (EA) for chronic severe functional constipation (CSFC). Design Randomized, parallel, sham-controlled trial. (ClinicalTrials.gov: NCT01726504). Setting 15 hospitals in China. (More)
Gastric cancer (GC) is one of the common reasons of cancer-related death with few biomarkers for diagnosis and prognosis. Solute carrier family 2 (facilitated glucose transporter) member 1 protein SLC2A1, also known as glucose transporter type 1 (GLUT1), has been associated with tumor progression, metastasis, and poor prognosis in many human solid tumors.(More)
