OBJECTIVE Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder in clinical practice, but the pathophysiology of IBS has not been completely elucidated yet. Experiments have revealed that the concentrations of some kinds of brain-gut peptides, such as substance P, were abnormal in the plasma and/or the intestinal mucosa. In order to explore further the(More)
A hybrid approach to support cell survival and decrease cell escape Cell transplantation has become an attractive option for cardiac regenerative therapy. However, poor cell survival and extensive redistribution throughout the body can drastically affect the outcome and safety of cell therapy. Although various approaches have been attempted to support the(More)
We suggested that low-level laser irradiation (LLLI) precondition prior to cell transplantation might remodel the hostile milieu of infarcted myocardium and subsequently enhance early survival and therapeutic potential of implanted bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs). Therefore, in this study we wanted to address: (1) whether LLLI pre-treatment(More)
BACKGROUND MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are short, single-stranded and non-coding RNAs, freely circulating in human plasma and correlating with vary pathologies. In this study, we monitored early myocardial injury and recovery after heart transplantation by detecting levels of circulating muscle-specific miR-133a, miR-133b and miR-208a. METHODS 7 consecutive(More)
BACKGROUND Conflicting results from recent observational studies have raised questions concerning the benefit of β-blockers for patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Furthermore, the efficacy of long-term β-blocker therapy in CABG patients after hospital discharge is uncertain. METHODS AND RESULTS The study included 5926 consecutive(More)
— Closeness centrality is a basic centrality measure that characterizes how centrally located a node is, within a network, based on its distances to all other nodes. In this paper, we address the distributed computation of two variants of this measure, known as classic closeness and exponential closeness, which differ in how the distances are taken into(More)
BACKGROUND The incidence of adenocarcinoma of the esophagogastric junction is increasing. This study aims to evaluate the clinicopathological features of Chinese patients with adenocarcinoma of the esophagogastric junction and to define prognostic factors. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed a database of 382 consecutive patients with adenocarcinoma of(More)
BACKGROUND The incidence of the esophagogastric junction cancer is growing rapidly. The purpose of this study is to clarify the outcome of the ratio between metastatic and examined lymph nodes in esophagogastric junction cancer patients with or without 7 examined lymph nodes. METHODS A total of 3,481 patients who underwent operation are identified from(More)
Background. Acute carbon monoxide poisoning (ACOP) is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in many countries. Twelve Hand Jing Points (THJP) have been believed to be effective to treat all kinds of emergency calls in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) for more than 3000 years. This randomized controlled trial (RCT) is designed to evaluate the(More)
