PURPOSE 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(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)
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)
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)
Typhae Pollen, dried pollen of Typha angustifolia L., Typha orientalis Presl or other plants of the same genus (Typhaeceae), has the effect of activating the circulation to cure blood stasis in traditional Chinese Medicine. The purpose of this study was to set up an ultra-high performance liquid chromatography method that could determine p-hydroxybenzoic(More)
Areas of northern China are arid, and soil moisture content and fertility are low at the time of planting of maize. A solution was proposed to address this problem. After harvesting in the autumn, the soil is tilled to create deep furrows which are filled with straw and fertilizer, and then backfilled to form ridges that are mulched with a plastic film. In(More)
Technology to build WEB GIS has variety, but most of them are based on a common GIS platform, the architecture complex and can not be a good achievement for the power industry needs. In this paper, a new method to build Web GIS, which is based on Oracle MapViewer, is discussed. Oracle MapViewer- based Web GIS, which has simple structure, uses Oracle Spatial(More)
