Our recent inverse scattering work has been to derive inverse scattering theory and algorithms that can be used to process practical experimental data. The theory makes use of computation of the forward scattering solution. Therefore, an eecient forward solver is instrumental to the rapid solution of the inverse scattering problem. The advantage of the more(More)
Tramiprosate, a small aminosulphonate compound, is present in various species of red marine algae. In this study, we examined whether tramiprosate protects neurons and improves functional recovery following ischemic stroke in rats subjected to the intraluminal filament model of MCAO and further explored the underlying mechanisms. Tramiprosate(More)
BACKGROUND Early life stress has been demonstrated to increase the risk of developing depression in adulthood. However, the roles and associated molecular mechanisms of stresses in the onset and relapse of depression have yet to be fully elucidated. METHODS Depression-like behaviors were induced in rats by maternal deprivation and chronic unpredictable(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the antioxidant capacity of Lactobacillus plantarum ZLP001 and its effects on growth performance and antioxidant status in weaning piglets. The survival in hydrogen peroxide and free radical-scavenging activity of Lactobacillus plantarum ZLP001 were analysed in vitro. The Lactobacillus plantarum ZLP001 showed high(More)
Vitamin A is a critical micronutrient for regulating immunity in many organisms. Our previous study demonstrated that gestational or early-life vitamin A deficiency decreases the number of immune cells in offspring. The present study aims to test whether vitamin A supplementation can restore lymphocyte pools in vitamin A-deficient rats and thereby improve(More)
