The effects of berberine (BBR) on the pharmacokinetics of ciclosporin A (CsA) were examined in healthy volunteers. Six healthy male volunteers were orally treated with 0.3 g BBR, twice daily for 10 days. Pharmacokinetic investigations on CsA at 6 mg/kg were done both before and at the end of the BBR treatment period. Another six healthy male volunteers were(More)
BACKGROUND Posttransplantation diabetes mellitus (PTDM) is a well-recognized renal transplantation complication that is associated with increased graft loss, morbidity, and mortality. Adiponectin gene polymorphisms are associated with type 2 diabetes. However, it remains unknown whether these polymorphisms increase the risk for development of PTDM.(More)
CD31/platelet endothelial cell adhesion molecule 1 (PECAM-1) is expressed on platelets, endothelial cells, myeloid cells, monocytes, and certain lymphocyte subsets. It has been shown that CD31 is involved in the homophilic and heterophilic cellular adhesion and leukocyte transendothelial migration, but little is known about the role of CD31 in platelet(More)
By means of CM-Sephadex C-25, DEAE-Sephadex A-50, Sephadex G-200, and Sephadex G-75 chromatographies, a lupus anticoagulant like protein (LALP) from Agkistrodon halys brevicaudus was purified. On SDS-PAGE, the purified LALP had a molecular weight of 25,500 daltons under non-reducing condition and 15,000 daltons under reducing condition. The isoelectric(More)

Four types of anti-human platelet glycoprotein IIb/IIIa (GP IIb/IIIa)monoclonal antibodies (McAb), termed HIP2, HIP4, HIP7, HIP8, were obtained in our laboratory. All of them recognized GP IIb/IIIa complex except that HIP2 recognized GP IIb. As to the effect of the four McAbs on platelet aggregation, the results showed: 1) HIP4 and HIP8 can completely(More)
A murine monoclonal antibody, designated as MAb AAP2, was produced by immunizing human activated platelets to BALB/c mice. MAb AAP2 recognizes a platelet membrane antigen that was present in trace amount on the membrane of resting platelets, and was strongly expressed on the membrane after activation with thrombin as demonstrated by immunofluorescence(More)
Intestinal fistulas are severe complications after abdominal surgical procedures. The endoscopic therapy makes it possible to close fistulas without surgical interventions. When patients achieved stabilization and had no signs of systemic sepsis or inflammation, these therapies could be conducted, which included endoscopic vacuum therapy, fibrin glue(More)
A monoclonal antibody designated Apt4, which is IgG1, was produced by fusion of mouse myeloma cells to spleen cells from a BALB/c mouse immunized with normal human platelets. Apt4 whole IgG caused the aggregation of both platelet rich plasma (PRP) and washed platelets from normal subjects and a patient with Bernard Soulier syndrome but not those from two(More)
