The goal of our study is to evaluate the effect of Scutellarin on type II diabetes-induced testicular disorder and show the mechanism of Scutellarin's action. We used streptozotocin and high-fat diet to establish type II diabetic rat model. TUNEL and haematoxylin and eosin staining were used to evaluate the testicular apoptotic cells and morphologic(More)
BACKGROUND Myocardial cavitation-enabled therapy (MCET) has been proposed as a means to achieve minimally invasive myocardial reduction using ultrasound to produce scattered microlesions by cavitating contrast agent microbubbles. METHODS Rats were treated using burst mode focused ultrasound at 1.5 MHz center frequency and varying envelope and pressure(More)
Myocardial contrast echocardiography at enhanced therapeutic parameters may be a novel means of tissue reduction therapy, as for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Dahl/SS rats were anesthetized and treated with high-amplitude pulsed ultrasound guided by 10-MHz ultrasound images. Contrast microbubbles were infused via the tail vein during intermittent pulse-burst(More)
OBJECTIVES Glomerular capillary hemorrhage can be induced by ultrasonic cavitation during contrast-enhanced diagnostic ultrasound (US) exposure, an important nonthermal US bioeffect. Recent studies of pulmonary US exposure have shown that thresholds for another nonthermal bioeffect of US, pulmonary capillary hemorrhage, is strongly influenced by whether(More)
Objectives: Thyroid-like low grade nasopharyngeal papillary adenocarcinoma (LNPPA) is a very rare tumor occurred in nasopharyngeal area. Here we presented 3 cases, with one demonstrating biphasic differentiation which was even rarely encountered. Methods: Tumor’s gross appearance, histology, immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization were described.(More)
Calcifying fibrous tumor (CFT) is a rare benign fibrous lesion of uncertain pathogenesis which shows distinct histological features. CFT has a broad anatomy distribution, and it was recently described in the subcutaneous and deep soft tissue, intra-cavity and intrinsic viscera. However, so far, there is no report to describe a CFT occurring in bone. We(More)
Sb2O3 nanoparticles are uniformly anchored on reduced graphene oxide (rGO) sheets via a facile and ecofriendly route based on the alcohol dissolution-reprecipitation method. Such obtained Sb2O3/rGO composite demonstrates a highly reversible specific capacity (1355 mA h g-1 at 100 mA g-1), good rate capability, and superior life cycle (525 mA h g-1 after 700(More)
RATIONALE Hemolymphangioma is a rare developmental error of combined blood and lymphatic vasculature. To the best of our knowledge, there is only one case of rectal hemolymphangioma reported in Pubmed. Our case probably is the first reported rectal hemolymphangioma with computed tomography (CT) evaluation. PATIENT CONCERNS AND DIAGNOSIS A 57-year-old male(More)
In this study, we investigated the relationship between tryptophan-5-hydroxytryptamine metabolism, depressive disorder, and gastrointestinal dysfunction in rats after myocardial infarction. Our goal was to elucidate the physiopathologic bases of somatic/psychiatric depression symptoms after myocardial infarction. A myocardial infarction model was(More)
Myocardial contrast echocardiography (MCE) for perfusion imaging can induce microscale bio-effects during intermittent high-Mechanical Index scans. The dependence of MCE-induced bio-effects on the ultrasonic frequency was examined in rats at 1.6, 2.5 and 3.5 MHz. Premature complexes were counted in the electrocardiogram, petechial hemorrhages with(More)
