Neuroinflammation has been implicated in the etiology of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Many studies have suggested that C(-889) T promoter polymorphism in one of the proinflammatory cytokine interleukin-1 (IL-1) encoding gene IL-1A may be associated with AD pathogenesis. To determine whether the polymorphism contributes to the risk for late-onset AD (LOAD) in(More)
The spontaneously epileptic rat (SER), a double mutant (zi/zi, tm/tm), exhibits both tonic convulsions and absence-like seizures from the age of 8 weeks. Since the first point mutation in the voltage-gated sodium channel (VGSC) beta(1) subunit in human generalized epilepsy with febrile seizures plus (GEFS+) was identified, more and more types of genetic(More)
To study the inhibitory effect of Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) on the responsive hyperplasia of damaged astrocytes in vitro. We prepared damaged model of astrocytes to simulate the responsive hyperplasia of damaged astrocytes in vivo by culturing astrocytes in vitro; After the first day of Ad-HGF transfection, astrocytes were scratched, then after the(More)
BACKGROUND We aimed to guide clinical nursing by studying the relationship between intestinal acute graft-versus-host disease and intestinal infection after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. MATERIAL/METHODS We present an effective nursing method by comparing and analyzing the degree, duration time, and volume of diarrhea, and the distribution of(More)
LINGO-1 (leucine-rich repeat and Ig domain-containing, Nogo receptor-interacting protein) is an important component of the NgR receptor complex involved in RhoA activation and axon regeneration. The authors report on passive immunization with LINGO-1 polyclonal antiserum, a therapeutic approach to overcome NgR-mediated growth inhibition after spinal cord(More)
(1) The study of neural stem cells (NSC) has attracted much attention in recent years because of their therapeutic potential. However, the problem in culture and differentiation of NSC was how to obtain single cell suspension that preserves the function of NSC, and remove the debris caused by mechanical dissociation. In the present study, we try to find a(More)
OBJECTIVE Hemangioblastoma of the central nervous system (CNS) occur as sporadic tumors or as a part of von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease, an autosomal dominant hereditary tumor syndrome caused by germline mutation of the VHL tumor suppressor gene. This study shows the clinical characteristics of three large Chinese families with VHL disease and evaluates the(More)
Epithelial cells from tracheal mucosa offer significant potential as a cell source in development of tissue-engineered trachea. The purpose of this study was to investigate and optimize a suitable culture system for tracheal epithelial cells, including the methods of primary culture, passage, identification, and cryopreservation. Epithelial cells were(More)
