BACKGROUND Glutamate-mediated excitotoxicity, primarily through N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors, may be an important cause of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) death in glaucoma and several other retinal diseases. Bis(7)-tacrine is a noncompetitive NMDA receptors antagonist that can prevent glutamate-induced hippocampal neurons damage. We tested the(More)
Amyloid β protein (Aβ) is considered to be partly responsible for the impairment of learning and memory in Alzheimer disease (AD). In addition, it has been found recently that type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a risk factor for developing AD. One promising treatment for AD is using analogues for the insulin-release facilitating gut hormone glucagon-like(More)
Intrathecal (ith) injection of cholecystokinin octapeptide (CCK-8) to the rat with single dose of 4 or 40 ng, or successive doses from 0.1 to 1 microgram at 10 min intervals produced neither analgesia nor hyperalgesia. However, the analgesia produced by ith injection of PL017, a specific mu-receptor agonist or 66A-078, a specific kappa-receptor agonist(More)
We previously showed the emergence of predominantly non-fused murine cells co-expressing cardiac and stromal determinants in co-cultures of murine mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) and rat embryonic cardiomyocytes. To determine whether a similar phenotype is detectable in vivo in ischemic myocardium, we infused green fluorescence protein (GFP)-marked MSCs(More)
The frontal facial moire photographs of 50 male and 50 female young adults with esthetic face strictly selected from Chinese population on the basis of the standard were taken and analysed three-dimensionally. It was found that not only significant correlation but also a statistical linear regressive equation existed between nose, lip and chin, between lip(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore material bases and neurobiological mechanisms of "Shen storing will" by observing learning and memory capacities and N-methyl-D-aspartic acid (NMDA) receptor expressions in Shen deficiency constitution (SDC) rats. METHODS Totally 40 SD rats were randomly divided into the model group, the Zuogui Pill (ZP) group, the Yougui Pill (YP)(More)
Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) and age-related macular degeneration (AMD) are two predominant causes of visual deterioration. Retinal prosthesis embeds a micro-electric chip or a micro-photoelectric diode array in the sub-retina or epi-retina, which is used to stimulate the remainder of inner retina, so as to restore some degree of sight. Retinal prosthesis has(More)
In this study, Wu Zi Yan Zong ([symbol: see text] WZYZ) fluid was used as the main recipe for reinforcement of the kidney. Six weeks after the therapy, the abilities of instantaneous memory and the memory of the segments of logical story were elevated, the time of upright standing with one leg and closure of the eye was prolonged, and the hand tremor and(More)
According to selections of both the public and the orthognathic surgeons, 100 lateral cephalograms were taken on the male and the female young adults with esthetic face and normal occlusion. Each X-Y coordinate value of 18 landmarks, 10 angular and 10 linear measurements, and 5 linear ratios were analysed. The features of the craniofacial structure of the(More)
CCK-8 has been shown to antagonize the analgesia produced by morphine or endogenous opioid peptides. The present study was performed to clarify the interaction between CCK-8 and different opioid ligands. Analgesia produced by intrathecal (I.T.) injection of the specific mu receptor agonist PL017 10 ng or kappa receptor agonist NDAP 500 ng can be antagonized(More)
