The objective of this meta-analysis was to evaluate the effects of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) for the treatment of depression in patients with Parkinson disease in order to arrive at qualitative and quantitative conclusions about the efficacy of rTMS. We included randomized controlled trials examining the effects of rTMS compared(More)
The neuroprotective actions of Ginsenoside-Rg1 (G-Rg1) have been documented for experimental stroke therapy. We used a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess the efficacy of G-Rg1 in experimental ischemic stroke. We identified studies describing the efficacy of G-Rg1 in animal models of focal cerebral ischemia. Primary outcomes were infarct volume(More)
In Foxj1 knockout mice, half show situs solitus while the other half show situs inversus, which means a random determination of the left-right axis. In contrast, the inv mutant mice show a mirror-image configuration of the internal organs, which means a reversal of the left-right axis. Although these two mutant mice have primary cilia on the nodal cells,(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the relationship among antibiotic resistance, integron, homology of multi-drug resistant Acinetobacter Baumannii isolated from burn ward. METHODS Thirty-one strains of multi-drug resistant Acinetobacter baumannii were isolated from samples of burn wound exudate in hospitalized patients of Gansu Province People's Hospital. The(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the drug-resistance of Acinetobacter baumannii (Ab) isolated from patients in burn ward, and study the incidence of 16S rRNA methylase genes mediated high-level aminoglycoside drug-resistance and its mechanism of transfer. METHODS A total of 40 Ab clinical isolates were collected from burn ward in Gansu Province People's Hospital(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the distribution and drug resistance of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus strains in various specimens of inpatients in burn wards, and to provide reference for clinical treatment. METHODS Bacteria were isolated from specimens of wound exudate, blood, sputum, and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid etc., which were collected from patients(More)
It has been shown that inflammation and oxidative stress are important factors in postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF). Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) and apelin have a close relationship with inflammation and oxidative stress. The effect of ACE and apelin on POAF after off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (OPCABG) remains a question. The(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the severity of early myocardial injury in rats with 30% full thickness burn at plateau and the protective effects of Rhadiola Astragalus Codonopsis Compound (RACC) on the rat myocardial injury. METHODS One hundred and four Wistar rats with 30% full thickness burn were randomly divided into RACC application (R, n = 48) and(More)
Patients with rheumatic heart disease (RHD) often experience persistent atrial fibrillation (AF) associated with adverse atrial structural remodeling (ASR) manifested by atrial fibrosis and left atrial enlargement. The aim of this study was to explore the potential molecular signaling mechanisms for atrial fibrosis and ASR. Twenty RHD patients with(More)
