The levels of these serum(More)
BACKGROUND Reduced neutrophil apoptosis plays an important role in the pathogenesis of acute exacerbation chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (AECOPD). The p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signaling pathway is involved in neutrophil apoptosis. 1α,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1α,25VitD3) can induce tumor cell apoptosis. The aim of this study was to(More)

Sulcardine sulfate is a newly developed candidate drug used to control arrhythmias. The aim of this research was to investigate the pharmacokinetics, bioavailability and excretion characteristics of sulcardine in animals. Sprague–Dawley rats were orally and intravenously given sulcardine at 20 and 40 mg/kg. Beagle dogs were also orally and intravenously(More)
Accurate quantification of creatinine (Cre) is important to estimate glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Differences among various methods of Cre quantification were previously noted. This study aims to develop a liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) method for serum Cre and compare this method with clinical routine methods. LC-MS/MS(More)
