BACKGROUND Under the culture of filial piety and due to the Confucianism spirit in China, family caregivers usually undertake the responsibilities of caring for the older adults. They usually suffer from a heavy burden which is believed to impair their mental and physical health. Thus this study aims to describe the health-related quality of life (HRQOL)(More)
CYP101C1 from Novosphingobium aromaticivorans DSM12444 is a homologue of CYP101D1 and CYP101D2 enzymes from the same bacterium and CYP101A1 from Pseudomonas putida. CYP101C1 does not bind camphor but is capable of binding and hydroxylating ionone derivatives including α- and β-ionone and β-damascone. The activity of CYP101C1 was highest with β-damascone(More)
OBJECTIVE To study information gained by Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) four diagnostic methods and characteristics of syndrome development before and after treatment in patients with coronary heart disease, and to probe into assessment indexes of therapeutic effects with distinctive TCM features. METHODS Information from the four diagnostic methods(More)
The relationships between dietary fruit, vegetable, fat, and red and processed meat intakes and Barrett's esophagus (BE) risk remain inconclusive. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to summarize the available evidence on these issues. PubMed, EMBASE and the Cochrane Library were searched for studies published from inception through October(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate the accuracy of resistin, leptin and adiponectin levels in predicting persistent organ failure in patients with acute pancreatitis (AP). METHODS Data from 90 consecutive patients admitted to our hospital for AP were retrospectively collected from an ongoing prospective cohort study. The levels of adiponectin, leptin and resistin(More)
B10 cells are specific B cell subsets with the capacity of producing IL-10 to inhibit immune responses. Several studies have demonstrated that B10 cells are correlated with some immune and inflammatory diseases, such as experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), collagen-induced arthritis (CA), colitis and contact hypersensitivity. However, its role(More)
Cytochrome P450 enzymes catalyze a variety of reactions and are widely distributed in living organisms. In recent studies, the first members of five new families of cytochrome P450 enzymes have been identified, including cytochrome P450 219A1 (CYP219A1) from Novosphingobium aromaticivorans DSM 12444. It has also been reported that isolongifolen-9-one(More)
Epstein-Barr virus-associated gastric cancer (EBVaGC) has been proposed to be a distinct subtype with a specific immune microenvironment. Here, we evaluated tumor-infiltrating T-cell subsets and the expression of programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1) and programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) in 571 gastric cancers (GCs). Tissue microarrays were stained using(More)
AIM To analyze the serum metabolites in patients with coronary heart disease (CHD) showing dampness syndrome and patients with chronic renal failure (CRF) showing dampness syndrome and to seek the substance that serves as the underlying basis of dampness syndrome in "same syndromes in different diseases." Methods. Metabolic spectrum by GC-MS was performed(More)
