Stroke incidence among white, black, and Hispanic residents of an urban community: the Northern Manhattan Stroke Study.
The data from the Northern Manhattan Stroke Study suggest that part of the reported excess stroke mortality among blacks in the United States may be a reflection of racial/ethnic differences in stroke incidence. Expand
A transcriptional partner for MAD proteins in TGF-beta signalling.
A model is proposed to explain how TGF-beta superfamily signals might regulate the expression of specific genes in the early embryo. Expand
Very low rates of hip fracture in Beijing, People's Republic of China the Beijing Osteoporosis Project.
Hip fracture rates in Beijing are among the lowest in the world but may be rising rapidly, according to hospital-based estimates, which were validated by interviewing a random sample of Beijing women and surveying hospitals in the counties surrounding Beijing. Expand
Molecular and functional analysis of SDCT2, a novel rat sodium-dependent dicarboxylate transporter.
In situ hybridization revealed that SDCT2 is prominently expressed in kidney proximal tubule S3 segments and in perivenous hepatocytes, consistent with the sites of high-affinity dicarboxylate transport identified based on vesicle studies, and help to interpret the mechanisms of renal citrate transport, their alteration in pathophysiological conditions, and their role in the elimination of organic anions and therapeutic drugs.

Maternal glucose concentration influences fetal growth, gestation, and pregnancy complications.
Observations extend Pedersen's hypothesis-that high concentrations of maternal glucose give rise to increased nutrient transfer to the fetus and increase fetal growth, beyond the model of maternal diabetes, and raise the question of whether higher, but seemingly normal maternal glucose concentration predisposes to or is a marker for placental inflammation and infection.

P pandemic O3:K6 V. parahaemolyticus isolates are predominant in southeastern China, and additional surveillance should be conducted to facilitate control of the transmission of this pathogen. Expand
Real-time PCR and Amplified MTD® for rapid detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in pulmonary specimens.
Both real-time PCR and AMTD are rapid and specific tests for detecting M. tuberculosis complex; however, 'Care TB' real- time PCR is more convenient and economical. Expand
Bone mass, rates of osteoporotic fractures, and prevention of fractures: are there differences between China and Western countries?
Increased intake of calcium and vitamin D may be the most effective approach to preventing fractures in China, but this should be tested in a randomized trial. Expand
An epidemiological survey of deformities and disabilities among 14,257 cases of leprosy in 11 counties.
This study was planned and conducted in Yang Zhou Prefecture, covering 11 counties that were formerly areas with a high prevalence of leprosy, and found cases with deformities and disabilities were found. Expand
Novel action of pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide. Stimulation of extracellular acidification in rat pituitary GH4C1 cells.
It is concluded that PACAP causes an increase in ECAR in GH4C1 rat pituitary cells, which is not dependent on the PKA, PKC, MAP kinase or Ca(2+) signalling pathways, but does require tyrosine kinase activity. Expand
