OBJECTIVE To analyze the clinical characteristics and laboratory data, treatment and prognosis of polycythemia vera (PV) and provide evidence for screening of high-risk population and looking for measures to reduce complecations. METHODS A retrospective study was performed among 70 patients with PV from May 2005 to May 2014, 43 males and 27 females, aged(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the changes of heart rate variability (HRV), adrenomedullin (ADM) and B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) before and after transcatheter closure in children with patent ductus arteriosus. METHODS HRV spectral values (TF, VLF, LF, HF, LF/HF) were detected by 24 dynamic electrocardiogram and the concentrations of plasma ADM and BNP were(More)
The aim of this paper is to estimate muscle fatigue by using wavelet analysis method in SEMG signal analysis. A signal acquisition system is designed and forearm muscle fatigue experiments under static and dynamic contractions are performed. The wavelet analysis method is proposed to group the wavelet coefficients of SEMG signal into high frequency-band(More)

Aberrant microRNA expression has been suggested to be an important event in the pathologies of various types of cancer. MicroRNA-138 (miR-138) has been reported to be frequently downregulated in various types of human cancer, including oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). However, the precise molecular mechanism of miR-138 underlying OSCC remains largely(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the quantity and function of bone marrow (BM) Th17 cells in the blood cytopenia patients with positive BMMNC-Coombs test (IRP) and to explore the role of Th17 cells in the pathogenesis of the disease. METHODS Forty-three untreated IRP patients, 34 recovered IRP patients and 13 healthy donors were enrolled in this study. The ratio of(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the quantity and function of regulatory T cells in immune related pancytopenia (IRP) and explore the significance of Treg cells in the pathogenesis of IRP. METHODS Sixty-six IRP patients and 24 healthy donors were enrolled. The levels of IL-2 and TGF-β were detected by ELISA. The ratios of CD4(+)CD25(+)/CD4(+) and(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the changes of serum leptin (LEP) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in children with congenital heart disease(CHD) and their roles in CHD. METHODS Forty-eight children with acyanotic CHD (ACHD group), 20 age-matched children with cyanotic CHD (CCHD group) and 20 healthy children (control group) were enrolled. The ACHD group(More)
