Many experiments support the notion that augmentation of neurotrophic factors' (NTFs) activity, especially glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) could prevent or halt the progress of neurodegeneration in Parkinson's disease (PD). However, application of NTFs as therapeutic agents for PD is hampered(More)
PURPOSE To compare efficacy and safety between fibrin sealant assisted limbal conjunctival autograft fixation and intra-operative MMC in pterygium surgery. METHODS Prospective, comparative, interventional case series. Forty eyes of 40 patients with nasal primary pterygium, 18 male and 22 female, were enrolled. The patients were assigned to two groups, and(More)
PURPOSE This pilot study was undertaken to examine the relationships between clinical measures of visual function and anatomic changes occurring in the eyes treated with bevacizumab for choroidal neovascularization (CNV) due to age-related macular degeneration (AMD). METHODS A retrospective review was conducted for 50 eyes that had been treated with at(More)
Primary nasal lymphoma (NSL) and nasopharyngeal lymphoma (NPL) are uncommon extranodal lymphomas that have often been grouped together in studies published in the literature. It is unclear whether or not NSL and NPL are biologically different entities. We reviewed the records of 25 NSL and 19 NPL patients who were managed between 1985 and 1995, to evaluate(More)
Objective. To investigate the current use of integrative therapies (IT) in the treatment of patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Methods. A cross-sectional, multicenter clinical epidemiological survey was conducted in 12 hospitals in Shanghai. We investigated the type and frequency of IT use and determined whether the use of IT correlated with(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the distribution and proportion of subtypes of pol gene in HIV-1 epidemic strains in Guangxi Autonomous Region. METHODS 152 HIV-1 patients were enrolled from 11 cities in Guangxi Autonomous Region from 2010 to 2012 by convenient sampling. Inclusion criterias were listed as the fdlowing: HIV-1 infection was confirmed by Western(More)
IP networks are more and more used to transport real-time services. A crucial factor for real-time services is the end-to-end delay experienced by the application. The contribution resulting from the queuing delay induced by the network nodes is the most difficult to calculate. Under assumptions of real-time traffic behaviors and network nodes behaviors,(More)
Carbon nanotube (CNT) has been shown to effectively activate peroxymonosulfate (PMS) to remove contaminants, whereas controversial activation mechanisms (radical vs non-radical mechanism) were previously proposed. Here we report that radical-induced decolorization of acid orange 7 (AO7) dominated in the CNT activated PMS system, but non-radical mechanism(More)
