OBJECTIVES This study used a nationwide population-based dataset from the 1997-2003 National Health Insurance claims to explore the prevalence, frequency, and relative risk of concurrent use of systemic corticosteroids with licorice-containing Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) preparations that might possibly result in drug-herb interactions.

Pulling tasks require the torso to act as a rigid link in order to facilitate the force transmission between the ground and the hands. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that a lifting belt increases the rigidity of the torso, thereby increasing pulling strength or reducing trunk muscle forces, or both, as pulling tasks are performed. Twelve volunteers(More)
The current study aimed to compare the estimates of body fat percentage (%BF) by performing bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) and dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) in a sample of obese or overweight Chinese adults who participated in a weight-loss randomized control trial stratified by gender to determine whether or not BIA is a valid measurement(More)
Vincristine (VCR) is widely used in tumor treatment. However, long-term use of this drug can make tumor cells resistant to it. Furthermore, the mechanisms underlying resistance development are unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate the long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) associated with colon cancer drug resistance using next-generation sequencing. A(More)
The objective of this study was to investigate the influence of humic acid (HA) and salinity on adsorption of Hg on the amorphous and crystalline of iron and manganese hydroxides. The results show that the adsorption of Hg(2+) on Fe and Mn hydroxides was inhibited in marine system due to the formation of stable, nonsorbing aqueous HgCl(2) complexes in(More)
This study integrated the techniques of the high-performance heat transfer and thermoelectric conversion to build a thermoelectric generator system installed at the exhaust pipe of a real single-cylinder and four-stroke engine of 35.8 c.c. displacement. This system was made of the heat absorber, thermoelectric generator modules and the external heat sink.(More)
The aims of the present study were to investigate the effects of mariculture activities on inorganic mercury (Hg(2+)) adsorption/desorption on sediments and the distributions of newly adsorbed Hg(2+) on different chemical fractionations. The adsorption amount and binding energy of Hg(2+) on mariculture sediment (MS) were significantly higher (p<0.05) than(More)
In the present study, six commonly used promoters, including cytomegalovirus major immediate-early (CMV), the CMV enhancer fused to the chicken beta-actin promoter (CAG), human elongation factor-1α (HEF-1α), mouse cytomegalovirus (mouse CMV), Chinese hamster elongation factor-1α (CHEF-1α), and phosphoglycerate kinase (PGK), a CMV promoter mutant and a CAG(More)
The therapeutic value of FK228 as a cancer treatment option is well known, and various types of cancer have been shown to respond to this drug. However, the complete mechanism of FK228 and the affect it has on histone lysine acetylation and the colon cancer cell proteome are largely unknown. In the present study, we used stable isotope labeling by amino(More)
