A number of studies have demonstrated that short-term meditation intervention can lead to greater tolerance and lower pain or distress ratings of experimentally induced pain. However, few attempts have been made to examine the effects of short-term mindfulness-based intervention on the tolerance and distress of pain, when delivered in a therapist-free form.(More)
BACKGROUND The relationship between diet, lifestyle and cognition of old adults has been indicated in several population-based studies. However, the conclusions derived from these studies are inconsistent. METHODS A cross-sectional study was carried out in 894 old Chinese adults aged 50 and above. Cognitive function of the participants was measured by(More)
BACKGROUND Years of education are inversely related to the prevalence of major depressive disorder (MDD), but the relationship between the clinical features of MDD and educational status is poorly understood. We investigated this in 1970 Chinese women with recurrent MDD identified in a clinical setting. METHODS Clinical and demographic features were(More)
To solve the accuracy degeneracy of traditional high-degree cubature Kalman filter (HCKF) with cross-correlation between process noises and measurement noises at the same time, this paper proposes the improved HCKFs. Through fifth-degree cubature rule and different decor related principles, the frames of proposed filters in the approximated minimum mean(More)
A boron-dipyrromethene (BODIPY) dye containing a styryl substituent with a hydroxyl and nitro group, 1a, exhibits a 'turn-on' fluorescence response for hypoxic cells. The presence of the electron-withdrawing nitro group results in a highly efficient nonradiative decay of the S1 state, and hence a recovery of fluorescence intensity when nitro reduction(More)
Apolipoprotein E (APOE) and oxidative damage were correlated with the risk of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Glutathione S-transferase (GST) polymorphism was proved to be associated with body antioxidant capacity and involved in the oxidative damage related chronic diseases. To explore the combined effects of APOE rs429358, rs7412 and GSTM1/T1 polymorphism on(More)

Inflammation and oxidative stress are essential for the pathogenesis of fulminant hepatic failure (FHF). Asiatic acid (AA), which is a pentacyclic triterpene that widely occurs in various vegetables and fruits, has been reported to possess antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. In this study, we investigated the protective effects of AA against(More)
