OBJECTIVE To observe the effects of Tongguan Capsule (TGC) on post-myocardial infarction ventricular remodeling and heart function in rats. METHODS A rat model of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) was established by coronary ligation. Experimental rats were randomized to 4 groups including three model groups (Group A: captopril 5 mg/kg * day, n=7; Group(More)
OBJECTIVE In dialysis patients, volume overhydration is common and is related to increased risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. However, it remains unclear whether volume overload imposes those detrimental effects through endothelial dysfunction. METHODS In this cross-sectional study, 81 stable patients on continuous ambulatory peritoneal(More)
BACKGROUND Hypertension is common in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), and isolated systolic hypertension (ISH) accounts for most patients with inadequate blood pressure (BP) control. However, it remains unclear whether the prevalence of ISH would increase with the advancement of CKD. METHODS CKD patients of stages 3, 4 and 5 were recruited (n =(More)
BACKGROUND Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is an important, independent negative predictor of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in the general population and in dialysis patients. Previous studies suggest a sex dimorphism in the prevalence of LVH; however, this issue has never been approached in dialysis patients. METHODS This study enrolled 237(More)
A good immunogen was developed as an effective recombinant vaccine candidate that protected mice against botulinum neurotoxin serotype B (BoNT/B) intoxication. The Hc fragment of Clostridium botulinum neurotoxin type B (rBoNT/B-Hc) was cloned into the bacterial expression vector pQE-30, and the resulting vector was successfully expressed in the Escherichia(More)
β2-Microglobulin (β2M), the light chain of the major histocompatibility complex class I (MHC I), has been identified as a proaging factor and is involved in the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disorders by driving cognitive and regenerative impairments. However, little attention has focused on the effect of β2M in the development of lung emphysema. Here,(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the expressions and clinical significances of p-extracellular regulated kinase(P-ERK)1/2 and matrix metalloproteinase-9(MMP-9)in cervical squamous cell carcinoma. METHODS The expressions of P-ERK1/2 and MMP-9 in 30 cases with chronic cervicitis, 45 cases with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN), and 58 cases with cervical squamous(More)
—The free swing fire monitor is suitable for the situation which is too risk to access for fireman. The fire monitor control system designed in this thesis has two control modes, wireless remote mode and panel control mode. So fireman can use it far from the dangerous fire field to aim at the fire and make it swing in a certain range. In this system, a MCU(More)
In this paper, Lomb periodogram estimate as a new spectrum calculation approach was used to deal with unevenly sampled signals sampled by Laser Doppler Particle Analyzer in Kenics Static Mixer. The effectiveness of the method was demonstrated by the simulations of deterministic model. The time series of instantaneous velocity in the turbulent region under(More)
