A study of the serological and epidemiological effects of primary immunization with current live attenuated measles vaccine (Hu191) among 503 children aged 6-15 months, was conducted in Jingzhou, Hubei province, China from 1991 to 1998. The results showed that the positive conversion rate of measles IgG was 91.65%, geometric mean titer (GMT) was 1:266.74(More)
OBJECTIVES Transabdominal sonography with a gastrointestinal contrast agent has been widely used in China for investigation of digestive disorders. Double-contrast-enhanced sonography combines a gastrointestinal luminal contrast agent with an intravenous contrast agent for imaging of lesions. The purpose of this pilot study was to assess the value of(More)
STUDY DESIGN The possibility to prevent acute spinal cord injury (ASCI) by selective infliximab combined with methylprednisolone (MP) was assessed in experimental ASCI. OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of infliximab, MP, and the combination of these 2 agents on expressions of NF-κB (nuclear factor Kappa B), TRADD (tumor necrosis factor receptor(More)
Biliary cast syndrome (BCS) is an unusual complication of orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). BCS is characterized by multiple intrahepatic biliary strictures, ductal dilatation, intrahepatic abscesses, and biliary anastomotic leakage. The symptoms of BCS usually include high fever, jaundice and cholestatic liver enzyme elevation; similar to the(More)
Insulin is the most effective drug for controlling the blood glucose of diabetes. But because of its large molecule weight and the physical and chemical character, its administration route is only limited in subcutaneous injection. In this paper we using side-by-side permeation chamber to illustrate the affection of high-voltage pulse to permeation of(More)
To demonstrate the benefit and safety of conservative therapy for round ligament varicosities (RLVs) that are easily misdiagnosed as inguinal hernias. We retrospectively analyzed clinical materials of 41 consecutive cases of RLVs diagnosed by ultrasound in a single hospital from January 2011 to December 2015. Misdiagnosis rate, clinical and sonographic(More)
In order to study voluntary movement control, we applied artificial neural networks (ANNs) to define the temporal patterns of surface electromyography (SEMG) activity used by normal subjects in performing three tasks, namely, wrist extension, continuous extension-flexion movements and extension-flexion movements for which the pause time between extension(More)
The signature of the self-microlensing in compact binaries (white dwarfs, neutron stars and black holes) is a flare with the characteristic time of typically a few minutes. The probability of detecting these microlensing events can be as high as 1/50 for a flux sensitivity of ∆m = 0.01 in magnitude. The discovery of the self-microlensing by binaries would(More)
Though it is commonly assumed that the brain creates "motor programs" which store the information essential to perform a motor skill, little direct evidence exists for such motor programs. Electromyography (EMG) provides a look into the motoneurons--level of a movement by measuring the electrical activity in relation to the muscle's involvement in the(More)
Using life cycle assessment (LCA) method, this paper presents the impact of recycled aggregate concrete containing fly ash on the environment. To resolve the distribution problem in the inventory analysis, the characteristic cooperation parameter of concrete is used as distribution coefficient of environmental load. As is shown by the results, recycled(More)
