OBJECTIVE To investigate the efficacy and safety of selective head cooling with mild systemic hypothermia in hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) in newborn infants. STUDY DESIGN Infants with HIE were randomly assigned to the selective head cooling or control group. Selective head cooling was initiated within 6 hours after birth to a nasopharyngeal(More)
OBJECTIVE To characterize the incidence, epidemiologic features, etiologic agents and sequelae of bacterial meningitis in children under 5 years of age in Nanning, Guangxi. METHODS A population-based surveillance was conducted to evaluate children with signs and symptoms of meningitis. All hospitals, township health centers and village clinics in the(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the effects and safety of autologous peripheral blood stem cell (PBSCs) transplantation by intracoronary infusion in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). METHODS 70 patients with AMI were allocated to two groups, one was PBSCs transplantation group (n=35) that received optimal post-infarction medical treatment (standard(More)
Recently, long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have emerged as new gene regulators and prognostic markers in several cancers,including glioma. Here, we focused on lncRNA LUCAT1 on the progression of glioma. QRT-PCR was used to determine the expression of LUCAT1 and miR-375 in glioma tissues and cells. MTT and transwell invasion assays were performed to determine(More)
As there are multiple factors causing hydrocephalus subsequent to intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH), it is difficult to achieve the best treatment effect using a single drug alone. In the present study, the protective effect of combination treatment with granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) and lithium chloride against hydrocephalus after IVH was(More)
A previous study revealed that ubiquitin-like with PHD and RING finger domains 1 (UHRF1) promoted cell proliferation and was a potential biomarker in medulloblastoma (MB). In the present study, we reported that miR-378 inhibited the expression of UHRF1 to affect the proliferation of MB through competitive binding to the same region of its 3'-UTR. We found(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the injury on micro-skin induced by a self designed micro-skin machine. METHODS Micro-skin was produced either with the machine or by hand. Cells at the edge of micro-skin were observed by transmission electron microscope. succinic dehydrogenase activity in supernatant of cultivated cells was analyzed, and the cell proliferation of(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify a novel HLA allele in Chinese population. METHODS A new HLA-B allele was initially detected by an usual PCR-SSP and PCR-SSOP in routine typing HLA allele. Sequence-based typing (SBT) was used to identify and analysis the difference between the new allele and HLA-B 4409 allele. RESULTS The HLA-B exon 3 nucleotide sequence of the(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the characteristics of immune function in newborn infants of different gestational ages. METHODS A total of 115 premature infants free of infection between June 1, 2012 and June 1, 2013 were divided into two groups according to their gestational age at birth: early preterm infant group (28-33+6 weeks, n=57) and late preterm infant(More)
