Intestinal ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) is a critical event in the pathogenesis of multiple organ dysfunction syndromes (MODS). The lungs are some of the most vulnerable organs that are impacted by intestinal I/R. The aim of this study is to investigate whether ginsenoside Rb1 can ameliorate remote lung injury induced by intestinal I/R. Adult male Wistar rats(More)
INTRODUCTION Information about sepsis in mainland China remains scarce and incomplete. The purpose of this study was to describe the epidemiology and outcome of severe sepsis and septic shock in mixed ICU in mainland China, as well as the independent predictors of mortality. METHODS We performed a 2-month prospective, observational cohort study in 22(More)
Low-work-function active metals are commonly used as cathode in polymer solar cells (PSCs), but sensitivity of the active metals towards moisture and oxygen results in poor stability of the devices. Therefore, solution-proceessable and stable cathode buffer layer is of great importance for the application of PSCs. Here we demonstrate high performance PSCs(More)
BACKGROUND Massive wasp stings have been greatly underestimated and have not been systematically studied. The aim of this study was to identify the clinical features and treatment strategies of severe wasp stings. METHODS AND FINDINGS A multicenter retrospective study was undertaken in 35 hospitals and medical centers including 12 tertiary care hospitals(More)
BACKGROUND The high incidence of pesticide ingestion as a means to commit suicide is a critical public health problem. An important predictor of suicidal behavior is suicide ideation, which is related to stress. However, studies on how to defend against stress-induced suicidal thoughts are limited. OBJECTIVE This study explores the impact of stress on(More)
This paper investigates the relationship between the development of tourism and economy growth. Both two time series are non-stationary, meaning there are unit root in both series and their 1st difference series are stationary. From 1994 to 2007, there is stable relationship between these two series and the number of inbound visitors is the granger reason(More)
Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a potentially devastating form of acute inflammatory lung injury as well as a major cause of acute respiratory failure. Although researchers have made significant progresses in elucidating the pathophysiology of this complex syndrome over the years, the absence of a universal detail disease mechanism up until(More)
Tanshinone IIA, one of the main active components from the Chinese herb Danshen, is widely used to treat cardiovascular diseases in Asian countries, especially in China. To further elucidate its heart rate-reducing and anti-ischemic mechanisms, here we investigated the effects of tanshinone IIA on hyperpolarization-activated cyclic nucleotide-modulated(More)
