BACKGROUND Cortical spreading depression can cause migraine attack, and up-regulate matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) expression in animal. This study aimed to determine the impact on the structure and function of the blood-brain barrier by measuring plasma MMP-9 levels in patients at the acute and late stages of migraine attacks in order to elucidate the(More)
Mycorrhizal association is known to be important to orchid species, and a complete understanding of the fungi that form mycorrhizas is required for orchid ecology and conservation. Liparis japonica (Orchidaceae) is a widespread terrestrial photosynthetic orchid in Northeast China. Previously, we found the genetic diversity of this species has been reduced(More)
Knowing type of an uncharacterized membrane protein often provides a useful clue in both basic research and drug discovery. With the explosion of protein sequences generated in the post genomic era, determination of membrane proteins types by experimental methods is expensive and time consuming. It therefore becomes important to develop an automated method(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the effect of pulmonary surfactant on otitis media with effusion in guinea pigs to find a new way to manage otitis media with effusion. METHODS Nonviable heat-killed pneumococci (HKP) solution was inoculated into the middle ear cavity in guinea pigs via a transeardrum approach to set up a model of otitis media with effusion in guinea(More)
OBJECTIVE To study clinical effects of one-hole microplate internal fixation for the treatment of collateral ligament injuries of the metacarpophalangeal joint of the thumb combined with fracture. METHODS Twenty-two patients (16 males, 6 females) with collateral ligament injuries of the metacarpophalangeal joint of the thumb combined fracture were treated(More)
