Nitinol self-expanding stents are effective in treating peripheral artery disease, including the superficial femoral, carotid, and renal arteries. However, fracture occurrences of up to 50% have been reported in some stents after one year. These stent fractures are likely due to in vivo cyclic displacements. As such, the cyclic fatigue and durability(More)
A new flocculant-producing bacterium Paenibacillus polymyxa BY-28 was isolated from soil. The optimal culture media for flocculant production were 2% glucose, 0.3% KH2PO4, 0.1% bean cake powder, 0.05% CaC12 and 0.05% (w/v) MgSO4.7H2O. Optimal culture temperature was 30 degrees C and pH was 6-8. Flocculants produced under optimal conditions efficiently(More)
Endovascular aneurysm repair (Greenhalgh in N Engl J Med 362(20):1863-1871, 2010) techniques have revolutionized the treatment of thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysm disease, greatly reducing the perioperative mortality and morbidity associated with open surgical repair techniques. However, EVAR is not free of important complications such as late device(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the clinical characteristics, image findings, laboratory examination, the therapeutic methods and clinical outcomes of bronchiolitis obliterans (BO) in pediatric patients. METHOD Twenty-six pediatric patients with BO were reported. All data were collected from cases who were hospitalized in the Department of Pediatrics, First(More)
Hydrogen can be inadvertently added to Nitinol medical devices through electropolishing, caustic cleaning, or exposure to other acidic or basic solutions. Moderately high hydrogen concentrations can lead to embrittlement characterized by lowered ductility and changes in transformation behavior. The purpose of the present report is to discuss recent results(More)
This study was aimed to investigate the characteristics of RHCE genotyping of Xinjiang Uygur nationality population in China. Primers for detecting RHCE genes were designed according to the references, 89 Uygur nationality RhD-negative samples, 233 Han nationality RhD-negative samples and 109 Han nationality RhD-positive samples were detected by(More)
Artemisinin is an effective antimalarial drug isolated from the herbal medicine Artemisia annua L. Molecular imprinting is a technique of preparing molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) which can specifically recognize the imprinted template molecules. In this work, silica gel were used as supporting matrix, and vinyltriethoxysilane (VTES) was grafted onto(More)
BACKGROUND The correlation between signal-to-cutoff (S/CO) ratios of a second-generation hepatitis C virus (HCV) enzyme immunoassay (EIA; Abbott) and a third-generation HCV enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA; Ortho) and confirmed HCV infection has been reported. The utility of the values for the Chinese anti-HCV EIA kits, however, has not been studied(More)
OBJECTIVE The study aimed to test if Paridis Rhizoma total saponins (PRTS) could induce apoptosis of human gastric cancer cell MKN-45. METHOD Based on the previous researches, PRTS was set by different concentrations to treat human gastric cancer cell for 12 h (5, 10, 20 mg x L(-1)). Fluorescent staining methods were adopted to observe apoptotic(More)
