An epidemiological comparative study on dietary patterns and population means of blood pressure was undertaken in 10 groups (3 of workers, 6 of farmers, 1 of fishermen) of adult males and females of northeast, north, south, middle and east China. Standardized methods and record forms were used for blood pressure measurements and 24-hr dietary recall(More)
The objective of this study was to compare the osteogenic potential of human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) within two- and three-dimensional (2D and 3D) culture systems. hESCs of the H1 line (Wicell Inc., Madison, Wisc., USA) were induced to form embryoid bodies (EBs) through 5 days of suspension culture within non-adherent culture dishes.

Accelerated bone mineral density loss (BMDL) occurs early after allogeneic stem cell transplantation (SCT) and is related to factors such as steroids and chronic GvHD. In order to understand the natural history of BMDL of SCT in the longer term, we evaluated a longitudinal cohort of 148 survivors with a median follow-up of 12 years (range 3-22 years). All(More)
Comorbidity scores have improved our ability to predict the outcome after T-cell-replete allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HCT). Prediction tools such as the Sorror Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation-Specific Comorbidity Index (HCT-CI) have been developed and validated in conventional T-replete HCT. Ex vivo T-cell depletion (TCD) of the(More)
