OBJECTIVE To analyze the effectiveness of resistance exercise in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis on pain, stiffness, and physical function. DESIGN Systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials. DATA SOURCES PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, the Web of Science, and Chinese Biomedical Literature(More)
Dicer1, an RNase III endonuclease, is indispensable for the maturation of miRNA and siRNA, which control gene expression through the RNAi pathway. The diverse functions of miRNA involving multiple developmental processes have been elucidated, but the role of Dicer1 in spermatogenesis is just beginning to be revealed. Mice lacking Dicer1 were reported to be(More)
OBJECTIVES Controversies exist over which type of graft is best for the reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). The purpose of this systematic review was to evaluate the effectiveness of ACL reconstruction using either hamstring (HT) autografts or bone-patellar tendon-bone (BPTB) autografts. METHODS We searched the Cochrane Library,(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of hamstring (HT) autografts versus bone-patellar tendon-bone (BPTB) autografts for reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). We searched the Cochrane Library, MEDLINE, EMBASE and the Chinese Biomedicine Database (CBM) for published randomised clinical trials (RCTs) relevant to ACL(More)
OBJECTIVE Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is characterized with pulmonary vasoconstriction and vascular remodeling mediated by 15-lipoxygenase (15-LO)/15-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (15-HETE) according to our previous studies. Meanwhile, telomerase reverse transcriptase (TERT) activity is highly correlated with vascular injury and remodeling, suggesting that(More)
Molecularly imprinted Fe(3)O(4)/SiO(2) core-shell magnetic composites (Fe(3)O(4)/SiO(2)-MIP) were successfully prepared via anchoring p-nitrophenol (p-NP) imprinted functional polymers on the surface of amino-modified Fe(3)O(4)/SiO(2) core-shell particles. Synthesized magnetic Fe(3)O(4)/SiO(2)-MIP composites were characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning(More)
Hepatitis B virus (HBV) intrauterine infection remains to be an important cause for a large number of persistent hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) positive carriers in areas with a high HBV prevalence, particularly in China and Southeast Asia. In this study, the possible association between the HBV genomic heterogeneity and intrauterine infection was(More)
Adiponectin (APN) is an important anti‑atherogenic adipocytokine. The aim of the present study was to investigate the role of adiponectin in atherosclerotic plaque formation and clarify its mechanisms. An atherosclerosis model was induced by in vivo perivascular constrictive silica collar placement on the left common carotid arteries in male apolipoprotein(More)
Fe-montmorillonite (Fe-Mont.) is obtained by exchanging the original interlayer cations of montmorillonite by poly-hydroxyl ferric. In this paper, Fe-Mont. was synthesized by using Ca-montmorillonite (Ca-Mont.) directly under ultrasonic treatment with the aim to enhance the ability of removal of heavy metal ions from wastewater. The modified materials were(More)
