After passing toxicity and experimental therapeutic tests, four oxime cholinesterase reactivators [PAM (pyridine aldoxime methiodide), PAC (pralidoxime, pyridine aldoxime methylchloride), TMB4 (trimedoxime), and DMO4 (obidoxime, Toxogonin, LüH6)] were compared in clinical trials. All of them proved capable of restoring erythrocyte cholinesterase activity(More)
To assess long-term vascular effects of occupational carbon disulfide (CS2) exposure, we examined 376 exposed and 325 unexposed Chinese workers with a medical and work-history questionnaire, a chest-pain questionnaire, blood pressure and blood cholesterol measurements, routine urinary tests, monochromatic fundus photography and other tests. Data from 354(More)
The effects of the traditional Chinese drug Jianpi Bushen Prescription (JBP) were investigated on expressions of Wnt3a and Cyclin D1 genes in radiation-damaged mice. The radiation damage model was induced in Kumming mice by single total body irradiation treatment for 9 days. Mice were divided into the radiation group, low-dose (100%) JBP group, high-dose(More)
Erythrocyte basic ferritin (EF) concentration was determined in 64 normal subjects, 123 patients with anemia and 12 patients with leukopenia and thrombocytopenia. There was a significant difference between males and females. Other iron indices, including plasma iron (PI), total iron binding capacity (TIBC), zinc protoporphyrin (ZnPP) and plasma ferritin(More)
Objective: To investigate the feasibility of utilizing the current acute gastrointestinal injury(AGI) grading system, and explore the association of severity of AGI grade with clinical outcome in critically ill patients. Methods: The adult patients from 14 general ICUs in Zhejiang Province with an expected admission to ICU for at least 24 h were recruited,(More)
Previous research has focused on revealing the functions of each individual gene and/or pathway in idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) or ischemic cardiomyopathy (IC). However, the common or specific pathways of the initiation and processes of DCM and IC are still unclear. Here, we attempted to uncover the critical genes and potential molecular networks(More)
This study investigated the effect of the Jianpi Bushen Prescription (JBP) on the expression of 3 major proteins in chemically damaged model mice. The 3 proteins were the Wnt3a, the SHP-1, and the transcription factors (NF-E2, c-jun, and c-fos) of the AP-1 protein family. Kunming mice were randomly divided into chemically damaged group (N=48), which(More)
