In a recent publication, we have shown that dihydroartemisinin (DHA), a derivative of antimalaria drug artemisinin, inhibits growth of pancreatic cancer cells in vitro and in vivo mediated by its anti-proliferative and pro-apoptotic effects. As it has been shown that the apoptosis might be induced due to cell cycle arrest, and that transcriptional factor(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the immunoregulatory effects of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) via promoting the apoptosis of peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBLs) to attenuate the severity of early stage acute pancreatitis (AP) in rats. Additionally, the persistence of the HBO treatment effects was evaluated. One hundred and twenty male Wistar rats were(More)
Recent studies have suggested that exogenously administered carbon monoxide (CO) is beneficial for resolution of acute inflammation. Severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) is an inflammatory condition which leads to a systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS). In this study, we investigated the role of CO liberated from carbon monoxide releasing molecule-2(More)
The study aimed to uncover the risk factors for the new defined pancreatic fistula (PF) and clinical related PF (CR-PF) after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) surgery and to evaluate the medico-economic effect of patients. A total of 412 patients were classified into two groups according to different criteria, PF and NOPF according to PF occurrence: CR-PF(More)
Previously, we have shown that hydrogen sulphide (H2 S) might be pro-inflammatory during acute pancreatitis (AP) through inhibiting apoptosis and subsequently favouring a predominance of necrosis over apoptosis. In this study, we sought to investigate the detrimental effects of H2 S during AP specifically with regard to its regulation on the impaired(More)
OBJECTIVES This study investigated the role of hypoxia-inducible factor 1alpha (HIF-1alpha) in acute pancreatitis (AP) and whether HIF-1alpha is involved in the therapeutic effects of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) on AP. METHODS Thirty Wistar rats with taurocholate-induced AP were randomly assigned to 3 groups (each group had 10 rats) receiving oxygen, HBO, or(More)
Molecular hydrogen (H2 ) has been proven to be an effective agent that can cure multiple organ diseases by reducing oxidative stress. Although the protective effect of hydrogen on acute pancreatitis (AP) has been confirmed, its molecular mechanism is still unclear. In this article, we aimed to investigate the changes in pancreatic cell protein expression(More)
Based on PSO-BP optimal algorithm an evolutionary neural network model is presented to improve the measurement accuracy with microwave resonant. Firstly, the global search ability and rate-displacement model of the PSO algorithm are used to follow the current instance dynamically and modulate its search strategy. And then BP local searching ability which(More)
A new broadband slot antenna is developed, which is fed on the coplanar waveguide (CPW), which is fed that, when the relative permittivity is lower (epsiv<sub>r</sub>=2.2) and the substrate is thinner (h=0.8mm). The relevant simulation and calculation are performed by using CST Microwave Studio. The return loss curves and the radiation patterns of this new(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the clinical feature, diagnostic and therapeutic experience of autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP). METHODS Twenty-one patients with AIP treated in the First Affiliated Hospital, Harbin Medical University from January 2006 to July 2014 were analyzed retrospectively. There were 15 men and 6 women among the 21 cases and the age ranged(More)
