Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is responsive to treatment with immunosuppressives and steroids, but often pursues a relapsing or refractory course resulting in increasing incapacity and reduced survival. Autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) following immunoablative chemotherapy is a newer therapy for autoimmune disease of potential use in severe(More)
This study aims to explore the expression of GRP78, a marker of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress, in the cortex of rat brains acutely exposed to methylmercury (MeHg). Thirty Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats were randomly divided into six groups, and decapitated 6 hours (h) after intraperitoneal (i.p.) injection of MeHg (2, 4, 6, 8 or 10 mg/kg body weight) or(More)
Cell selection is an important issue in femtocell networks, which can balance the utilization of the whole network. In this paper, we investigate cell selection problem in a two-tier femtocell network that contains a micro base station (MBS) and several femtocells with different access methods and coverage areas. We propose the evolutionary game model to(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore time-course effect and region-specificity of endoplasmic reticulum stress in rat brain acutely exposed by methylmercury (MeHg). METHODS Forty-two SD rats were randomly divided into seven groups, and the rats intraperitoneally injected at the dose of 4 mg/kg bw. MeHg were decapitated at the times of 0.5, 1, 3, 6, 12 and 24 h, then rats(More)
