Relationship between increasing body weight, insulin resistance, inflammation, adipocytokine leptin, and coronary circulatory function.
OBJECTIVES We sought to evaluate effects of obesity, insulin resistance, and inflammation on coronary circulatory function and its relationship to leptin plasma levels. BACKGROUND It is not knownExpand
Effects of stress on decision-making deficits in formerly heroin-dependent patients after different durations of abstinence.
OBJECTIVE Drug abuse is associated with substantial impairments in decision making. However, little is known about the time course of changes in decision-making ability after abstinence or about theExpand
Role of PET in the evaluation and understanding of coronary physiology
Positron emission tomography (PET) combined with tracer-kinetic modelling 1–5 affords the assessment of regional myocardial blood flow (MBF) in ml/g/min and, thus, extending the scope of conventionalExpand

Urate crystals activate innate immunity through Toll like receptor 4 (TLR4) activation, leading to the formation of the NACHT, LRR and PYD domains-containing protein 3 [NALP3; also known as NOD-likeExpand
Psychosocial stress after reactivation of drug-related memory impairs later recall in abstinent heroin addicts
IntroductionStress and stress hormone are known to play important roles in modulating different stages of memory including reconsolidation. In a previous study, we found that treatment with stress orExpand
Conversion of spent mushroom substrate to biofertilizer using a stress-tolerant phosphate-solubilizing Pichia farinose FL7.
To develop high-efficient biofertilizer, an environmental stress-tolerant phosphate-solubilizing microorganism (PSM) was isolated from agricultural wastes compost, and then applied to spent mushroomExpand
Pregnancy and delivery in women with spinal muscular atrophy
ABSTRACT Objectives: To expand the limited available knowledge about pregnancy and delivery in women with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) using a cohort of genetically proven SMA patients from USA.Expand
Positron emission tomography-measured abnormal responses of myocardial blood flow to sympathetic stimulation are associated with the risk of developing cardiovascular events.
OBJECTIVES We sought to assess prospectively whether patients with normal coronary angiograms but with impaired myocardial blood flow (MBF) increases to cold pressor testing (CPT) are at increasedExpand
Disequilibrium of M1 and M2 Macrophages Correlates with the Development of Experimental Inflammatory Bowel Diseases
Ulcerative colitis, a major inflammatory bowel disease, is an idiopathic inflammatory disorder of the colonic mucosa, accompanied by an aberrant immune reaction to intestinal microflora. MacrophagesExpand
Primary cutaneous zygomycosis caused by rhizomucor variabilis: a new endemic zygomycosis? A case report and review of 6 cases reported from China.
We report a case of primary cutaneous zygomycosis caused by Rhizomucor variabilis and review 6 cases reported from China that share similar features and are different from those cases caused by otherExpand
