BACKGROUND Previous functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies have shown abnormal functional connectivity in regions involved in emotion processing and regulation in pediatric bipolar disorder (PBD). Recent studies indicate, however, that task-dependent neural changes only represent a small fraction of the brain's total activity. How the brain(More)
BACKGROUND Hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) is an important public health problem in mainland China. HFRS is particularly endemic in Changsha, the capital city of Hunan Province, with one of the highest incidences in China. The occurrence of HFRS is influenced by environmental factors.

Sodium valproate (SV) is effective and well tolerated for the treatment of epilepsy and mood disorders. There are several cases of SV-induced enuresis noted in epileptic patients. No alternative medication has been suggested to manage this problem. We present the first case of a pediatric bipolar patient who developed diurnal and nocturnal enuresis during(More)
OBJECTIVE To carry out mutation analysis and prenatal diagnosis for 12 families affected with hearing loss and enlarged vestibular aqueduct from southern Zhejiang province. METHODS Clinical data and peripheral venous blood samples of 38 members from the 12 families were obtained. Mutations of 4 genes, namely SLC26A4, GJB2, c.538C to T and c.547G to A of(More)
Four Ag(I) ions are linked by four 5-phenyl-1H-tetrazole (Hptz) units to form a molecular crown [Ag4(ptz)4] as a structural analogue of calix[4]arene, which are further supported by Keggin anions to build a 2D layer containing two kinds of cycles, [Ag8(ptz)4(HPW(V)2W(VI)10O40)]·2H2O (1).
BACKGROUND There is no specific instrument available to measure cognitive deficits as reported by bipolar patients in China. Therefore, if discrepancies between bipolar patients' reports and the results of neuropsychological tests which have been described in other countries existing or not in Chinese bipolar disorder patients have not been known yet. And(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the rules for free fetal DNA clearance after delivery of fetuses carrying chromosomal aneuploidies. METHODS For 10 women carrying 18-to-25-gestation-week singletons confirmed to have chromosomal abnormalities by amniotic karyotyping, 5 mL of peripheral venous blood was drawn respectively before and 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 60 minutes,(More)
