BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Artemisinin and its derivatives exhibit potent immunosuppressive activity. The purpose of the current study was to examine the immunosuppressive activity of artemether directly on T lymphocytes and to explore its potential mode of action. EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH In vitro, T-cell proliferation was measured using [(3)H]-thymidine(More)
AIM To use cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) to evaluate the prevalence of root fenestration (RF) in a Chinese subpopulation. METHODOLOGY A total of 306 patients were selected from patients receiving a routine CBCT examination; those with a malocclusion, a history of trauma or nondental pathosis were excluded. Overall, CBCT images of 4387 teeth were(More)
In 1991-1995 by using the Rieckmann in vitro micro-method, susceptibilities of Plasmodium falciparum to eight antimalarials in the China-Lao PDR and China-Myanmar border areas were tested. The resistant rates of P. falciparum to chloroquinine were 95.0%-100%; IC50 114-240nmol/l. P. falciparum resistant rates to amodiaquine resistance accounted for(More)
Thymic nurse cells (TNCs) are stromal elements that contain between 20 and 200 T cells within their cytoplasm. Because of this unique feature they are believed to play a role in thymocyte development. Unfortunately, it has been difficult to obtain pure TNCs in quantities sufficient for extensive evaluation of their thymic function. As a result, only a(More)
Advanced prostate cancer (PC) still remains incurable. Novel immunogene therapy shows promise as treatment strategy that can target both localized and metastasized PC. In this study, we have developed a PC-specific oncolytic adenovirus (Ad-PL-PPT-E1A) armed with fusion gene of prostate-specific antigen and CD40 ligand, and aimed to evaluate its therapeutic(More)
