BACKGROUND The low-dose computed tomography (CT) technique has been widely used because it decreases the potential risk of radiation exposure, as well as enabling low-dose CT-guided lung lesion biopsy. However, uncertainties remain regarding diagnostic accuracy, radiation dose, complication rate, and image quality. PURPOSE To compare the diagnostic(More)
AIM To study the metabolic and pharmacokinetic profile of scutellarin, an active component from the medical plant Erigeron breviscapus (Vant) Hand-Mazz, and to investigate the mechanisms underlying the low bioavailability of scutellarin though oral or intravenous administration in rats. METHODS HPLC method was developed for simultaneous detection of(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the absorption and transepithelial transport characteristics of scutellarin and scutellarein in the human colonic adenocarcinoma cell (Caco-2) monolayer model. The influence factors on these two compounds' absorption were investigated, such as buffer solution, duration of culture, and inhibitors of multidrug resistance-associated(More)
Abstract Methotrexate (MTX) is a key component of chemotherapeutic regimens for childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), and enters the cell via active transport mediated by the reduced folate carrier (RFC1). A major single-nucleotide polymorphism of the RFC1 gene, G80A, which affects the activity of RFC1, may influence MTX toxicity in pediatric ALL.(More)
In order to explore the pollution characteristics of perfluorinated compounds (PFCs), 10 surface seawaters and 7 surface sediments were collected in offshore marine area of Shenzhen (offshore distance >2 km) in September 2013. All the samples were prepared by solid-phase extraction and analyzed using high performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the feasibility of pulmonary parenchyma perfusion imaging with flow sensitive alternating inversion recovery (FAIR), which is noninvasive and doesn't necessitate injection of contrast agents. METHODS A total of 20 healthy volunteers were undergone SSFSE-FAIR imaging. Two coronal perfusion-weighted MR images were acquired, one being(More)
A study was carried out on the characteristic of cadmium absorption in pumpkin by atomic absorption spectrophotometer. The results show that the cadmium absorption amount in pumpkin increased with the increase in cadmium concentration. Meanwhile the cadmium absorption amount in pumpkin increased with time. Eight hours after being cultured in the liquid, the(More)
Scutellarin (SG) and its aglycone, Scutellarein (S), are flavonoids of therapeutic cardiocerebrovascular disease. SG was hydrolyzed by bacterial enzyme into S which was absorbed in the intestine. The aim of this study was to determine the effects of the microflora in the intestinal lumen and the efflux transporter of intestinal epithelial cells on the(More)
The analysis on the Mn, Zn and Cu contents of litter, soil fauna and soil in Pinus korazenszis and broad-leaved mixed forest in Liangshui Natural Reserve of Xiaoxing' an Mountains showed that the test microelement contents in the litter, soil fauna and soil all followed the sequence of Mn > Zn > Cu, but varied with these environmental components, being in(More)
To determine if dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI (DCE-MRI) could correlate well with invasive angiography in the characterization of spinal tumor vascularity. Totally 40 patients with untreated spinal tumors underwent MRI before preoperative angiography and embolization. Tumors were assigned to hypervascular, moderate, or hypovascular groups based on(More)
