Matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP9) has been involved in inflammatory and pathologic processes of coronary artery lesions (CAL) in Kawasaki disease (KD). Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG), a traditional treatment for Kawasaki disease, could decrease the expressions of MMP9. The purpose of this study was to investigate the protective effect of IVIG in(More)
We report a facile approach to fabricating dendrimer-stabilized gold-silver alloy nanoparticles (Au-Ag alloy DSNPs) for targeted in vitro computed tomography (CT) imaging of cancer cells. In this study, folic acid (FA)-modified amine-terminated generation 5 poly(amidoamine) dendrimers (G5·NH2-FA) were used as stabilizers to prepare Au-Ag alloy DSNPs by(More)
We report a facile approach to forming dendrimer-stabilized gold nanoparticles (Au DSNPs) through the use of amine-terminated fifth-generation poly(amidoamine) (PAMAM) dendrimers modified by diatrizoic acid (G5.NH(2)-DTA) as stabilizers for enhanced computed tomography (CT) imaging applications. In this study, by simply mixing G5.NH(2)-DTA dendrimers with(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the occurrence of corneal incision-induced astigmatism following small incision extracapsular cataract extraction through a superotemporal incision combined with intraocular lens (IOL) implantation. METHODS A total of 255 cases (301 eyes) who received small incision extracapsular cataract extraction through a superotemporal incision(More)
In this study, aldosterone (ALD)-induced apoptosis of cardiomyocyte was evaluated based on the previous studies, and the roles of calpain signaling were clarified. Primary cultured rat cardiomyocytes were injured by ALD (0.01-10 μM) for varying time periods. Then, the effects of ethylene glycol tetraacetic acid (EGTA) (0.5 mM), calpeptin (2.5 μM), and(More)
A method for determining triazine herbicides in infant nutrient cereal-based foods by pressurized microwave-assisted extraction (PMAE), coupled with high-performance liquid chromatography-electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (HPLC-ESI/MS), is described. The key parameters of PMAE, including extraction solvent, extraction time and temperature, were(More)
A self-assembled quantum dots array (QDA) is a low dimensional electron system applied to various quantum devices. This QDA, if embedded in a single crystal matrix, could be advantageous for quantum information science and technology. However, the quantum tunneling effect has been difficult to observe around room temperature thus far, because it occurs in a(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the value of electronic data capture (EDC) system in large-sample size studies on Kawasaki disease (KD). METHOD The clinical data of 602 KD cases from 2007 to 2012 admitted to Shanghai Children's Hospital with EDC system connected with hospital information system (HIS) were retrospectively analyzed. Age, gender, acute symptoms,(More)
BACKGROUND Kawasaki disease is an acute, systemic vasculitis that affects the coronary arteries. However, the relationship between myocardial fibrosis and Kawasaki disease has been completely unknown until now. We aimed to provide quantitative information about myocardial fibrosis using cardiac integrated backscatter in Han race Kawasaki disease patients.(More)
