POEMS syndrome is a rare plasma cell dyscrasia characterized by polyneuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy, M protein, and skin changes. This study reviewed the clinical characteristics and long-term outcome of 99 consecutive Chinese patients with newly diagnosed POEMS syndrome in a single institute. The median age of 99 patients was 45 years, and the(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the feasibility, efficacy, and safety of high dose immunosuppressive therapy (HDIT) and autologous hemopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) with CD34+ cell selection in patients with severe, refractory autoimmune diseases. METHODS Twenty-six patients with persistent systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), rheumatoid arthritis (RA),(More)
To investigate the effect of EPO on hepcidin mRNA expression in normal mice, acute inflammatory mice and ACD mice, the acute phase model and ACD model of mouse was produced by subcutaneous injection of turpentine oil. Hepatic hepcidin mRNA expression levels of normal mice, acute inflammatory mice and ACD mice were detected by semi-quantitative(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the clinical features, diagnosis and treatment of thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). METHODS Clinical manifestations, laboratory findings, diagnosis,treatment and prognosis of 14 SLE patients with TTP were retrospectively analyzed. RESULT Of the 14 patients diagnosed with(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of human recombinant thrombopoietin (rhTPO, a product of Sunshine Pharmaceutical Co Ltd, China) in chronic refractory idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. METHODS Eighty-two patients with chronic refractory idiopathic purpura received daily subcutaneous administration of rhTPO at a dose of 1.0 micro g/kg for a(More)
A fluorescent assay of Hg2+ in neutral aqueous solution was developed using N-[p-(dimethylamino)benzamido]-N′-phenylthiourea (1). 1’s fluorogenic chemodosimetric behaviors towards various metal ions were studied and a high sensitivity as well as selectivity was achieved for Hg2+. It was because of a strongly fluorescent 1,3,4-oxadiazoles which was produced(More)
A structurally simple colorimetric sensor, N-4-nitrobenzene-N'-1'-anthraquinone-thiourea (1), for anions was synthesized and characterized by (1)H NMR, ESI mass and IR methods. In acetonitrile, the addition of F(-) changed 1 solution from colorless to yellow. In the presence of other anions such as CH(3)CO(2)(-), H(2)PO(4)(-), HSO(4)(-) and Cl(-), however,(More)
This study was aimed to investigate the effects of apogossypolone (ApoG2) on proliferative inhibition and apoptotic induction of multiple myeloma cells and its mechanism. The effects of ApopG2 on cell growth, cell viability, cell cycle and cell apoptosis were determined by Hoechst 33258 staining, DNA ladder formation and subdiploid peak analysis(More)
This study was to evaluate the role of reticulated platelets (RP) assay in the distinguishing the different causes of thrombocytopenia. The RP and immature platelet fraction (IPF) were stained by a nucleic acid-specific dye oxazine, and assayed by XE-2100 blood cell counter with an upgraded software in the reticulocyte/optical platelet channel. RP and IPF(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the efficacy and safety of recombinant human thrombopoietin (rhTPO) on chemotherapy-induced thrombocytopenia in patients with solid tumor. METHODS In this randomized crossover self-controlled multi-center clinical trial, 154 patients with solid tumor were randomly divided into two groups (group A 77 cases and group B 77 cases). All(More)
