BACKGROUND The prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and prediabetes has increased in China, and at different rates in different locations. Therefore a community-based screening research was conducted in order to determine the prevalence of CKD and prediabetes, and to analyze associated risk factors of CKD and prediabetes in a city of Southern China.(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the clinical relations of portal hypertensive gastropathy (PHG) of hepatitis B cirrhosis to other factors. METHODS Three groups of subjects were studied prospectively at our hospital from March 2000 to March 2001: 159 hepatitis B cirrhotic patients with portal hypertension, 114 hepatitis B cirrhotic patients without portal hypertension,(More)
[structure: see text] A novel host material for efficient green and red electrophosphorescence devices is obtained by adopting the new molecular strategy of nonconjugated linkage of carbazole and fluorene moieties. The new host combines characteristics of both carbazole and fluorene, giving a large-gap host material suitable for green and red phosphorescent(More)
The configuration of received chunks is the key to the video playback quality. The lack of more important chunks could degrade playback quality significantly. Unfortunately, directly applying rate-distortion (RD)-first or importance-first scheduling strategy in data-driven P2P streaming could incur serious content bottleneck problem. In this work, we first(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the predictive value of ALT, HBeAg and HBV DNA levels at baseline and HBV DNA levels at week 12 adefovir dipivoxil (ADV) treatment to the efficacy of it at week 52 in patients with HBeAg-positive chronic hepatitis B (CHB). METHODS Ninety-eight HBeAg-positive CHB patients with serum HBV DNA>or=1x10(6) copies/ml and ALT levels between 1.5(More)
Nondispersive ambipolar carrier transport with comparably high electron and hole mobilities for amorphous molecular solids that are composed of only a single type of chromophores was observed for the first time in amorphous ter(9,9-diarylfluorene)s. High hole and electron mobilities over 10-3 cm2/(V.s) can be achieved with these terfluorenes. In particular,(More)
Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency is an X-linked incompletely dominant enzyme deficiency that results from G6PD gene mutations. Women heterozygous for G6PD mutations exhibit variation in the loss of enzyme activity but the cause of this phenotypic variation is unclear. We determined DNA methylation and X-inactivation patterns in 71(More)
OBJECTIVE Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is an independent predictor of morbidity and mortality in dialysis patients. It remains unclear whether efforts to correct anemia in patients with mild-to-moderate chronic renal insufficiency (CRI) can reverse LVH. This prospective multi-center Chinese cohort study evaluates left ventricular mass index (LVMI)(More)
