INTRODUCTION Human myasthenia gravis (MG) is an autoimmune disorder of the neuromuscular system. Experimental autoimmune myasthenia gravis (EAMG) is a well-established animal model for MG that can be induced by active immunization with the Torpedo californica-derived acetylcholine receptor (AChR). Due to the expensive cost of purifying AChR from Torpedo(More)
Gastric neuroendocrine tumors (GNETs) are rare lesions characterized by hypergastrinemia that arise from enterochromaffin-like cells of the stomach. GNETs consist of a heterogeneous group of neoplasms comprising tumor types of varying pathogenesis, histomorphologic characteristics, and biological behavior. A classification system has been proposed that(More)
The mutation pattern of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) in mainland Chinese patients with mitochondrial myopathy, encephalopathy, lactic acidosis and stroke-like episodes (MELAS) has been rarely reported, though previous data suggested that the mutation pattern of MELAS could be different among geographically localized populations. We presented the results of(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the clinical characteristics of multiple sclerosis (MS) and neuromyelitis optica (NMO) for better diagnosis and differential diagnosis of them. METHODS The characteristics of 40 MS and 38 NMO cases were retrospectively studied on clinic manifestations, electroneurophysiology, some laboratory indices, imaging characteristics and so on.(More)
OBJECTIVE To summarize the clinical features, neuroimaging findings and pathological characteristics of pathologically confirmed tumefactive demyelinating lesions (TDL). METHODS The clinical features, neuroimaging findings and pathological characteristics were retrospectively collected and analyzed for 58 patients with pathologically confirmed TDLs.For(More)
OBJECTIVE To summarize the clinical features and neuroimaging findings of the patients with acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) involved in corpus callosum (CC) so as to distinguish it from other diseases. METHODS A total of 12 ADEM patients with the involvement of CC during the period of 2010-2012 were recruited. There were 9 males and 3 females(More)
Epithelial cell adhesion molecule (EpCAM) is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein overexpressed in human epithelioma but with relatively low expression in normal epithelial tissues. To exploit this differential expression pattern for targeted cancer therapy, an EpCAM-targeted immunotoxin was developed and its antitumor activity was investigated in vitro. An(More)
Fluoroacetamide is a high effective rodenticide with broad spectrum. A series of toxic symptoms emerge such as nausea, vomiting with bloody vomitus, epigastric burning, dizziness, headache, fatigue, face muscle twitching, dysphoria, expiratory dyspnea, hypotension, recurrent epigastric burning, general paroxysmal and tonic convulsion. Fluoroacetamide toxic(More)
Isolated cortical vein thrombosis (ICoVT) is a rare form of cerebral venous thrombosis and is easily misdiagnosed as brain tumor due to its atypical clinical presentations and radiological findings similar to brain tumors. The present study focused on 4 patients with ICoVT, 2 men and 2 women. In the 2 male patients, the onset of disease was insidious, with(More)
Optical Non-Destructive Testing (ONDT) can be applied as penetrating elemental and structure analysis technology in the Pigments identification field. Three-dimensional video microscopy, Raman microscopy and energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy are employed to measure the materials based on a Qing Dynasty meticulous painting. The results(More)
