ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Valeriana jatamansi Jones named Zhizhuxiang in China is one of the most popular traditional medicine for varied ailments related to malaise, abdominal distention, insomnia, and rheumatism. AIM OF THE STUDY Evaluate the safety of iridoids rich fraction from V. jatamansi Jones (IRFV) and to provide data for clinical(More)
Er ions with 108 keV to a dose of 1 x 10(17) cm-2 were implanted into Si-rich thermal oxidation SiO2/Si thin film using metal vapor vacuum arc (MEVVA) ion source implanter. Er concentration in as-implanted sample, which was attained to -10 at % correspond to the level of -10(21) atoms.cm-3, was analyzed by Rutherford back-scattering (RBS) and X-ray(More)
Objective: To observe the effect on TGF-beta signaling pathway of the total flavonoids from Valerian a jatamansi Jones in hepatocarcinoma 22-bearing mice. Method: Hepatocarcinoma 22-bearing mice models were established, and the mice were randomly divided into model group, tegafur group, high-dose and low-dose Valeriana jatamansi Jones group. The gene(More)
OBJECTIVES Usnea is a lichen of Usnea diffracta Vain and Usnea longissima Ach, which belongs to the genus Usnea Adans of Usneaceae. Usnea exerts numerous pharmacological activities, while its lipid regulatory activities remain unreported. This study aims to evaluate the effects of aqueous and ethanol extracts of Usnea on the regulation of lipid metabolism(More)
We prospectively evaluated the CEL-100 videolaryngoscope(TM) for insertion of double-lumen tracheal tubes in 48 consecutive patients who had been found to have an unanticipated Cormack and Lehane grade 3 (n=43) and grade 4 (n=5) laryngeal view and in whom two attempts at tracheal intubation using the Macintosh laryngoscope had failed. When the CEL-100 was(More)
Valeriana jatamansi Jones, a plant with heart-shaped leaves in the Valeriana genus of Valerianaceae, is widely used in Chinese folk medicine. Iridoid is an important constituent of V. jatamansi that contributes to the pharmacological efficacy of the herb. This study aims to investigate the regulation of lipid metabolism and its mechanism of the iridoids(More)
The gene expression profile of a normal-suffering monozygotic twin pair is investigated to explore biological mechanisms of spastic type cerebral palsy. Main works include following three aspects: First, a cDNA microarray test is carried out to get the differentially expressed genes of the patient with cerebral palsy compared to her monozygotic twin sister.(More)
BACKGROUND Chinese psychiatrists have gradually started to focus on those who are deemed to be at 'clinical high-risk (CHR)' for psychosis; however, it is still unknown how often those individuals identified as CHR from a different country background than previously studied would transition to psychosis. The objectives of this study are to examine baseline(More)
