PURPOSE To explore the potential use of concentrated growth factor (CGF) in the treatment of temporomandibular joint osteoarthritis (TMJ-OA). MATERIALS AND METHODS Surgical defects were created bilaterally on the condylar cartilage and bone to induce TMJ-OA in goats. CGF was applied to the right joints (CGF group) and physiologic saline was applied to the… (More)
PURPOSE To establish a goat model for traumatic temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and describe the gross appearance and histopathologic changes for the prognostic comparison of different types of TMJ trauma. MATERIALS AND METHODS According to clinical traumatic types, 16 adult goats were randomly divided into 4 groups based on outcome of surgical induction:… (More)
Extensive studies have been performed on acute mountain sickness (AMS), but biomarkers predicting AMS are lacking. Presently, the mainstay methods to identify AMS biomarkers include proteomic and genetic methods at high altitudes or in hypoxic simulated chambers. In the present study, we compared plasma cytokine profiles between AMS-susceptible individuals… (More)
This paper analyzes coal consumption in the 31 provinces and regions of China from 1995 to 2012. Using spatial analysis in Arc geographical information systems (ArcGIS) and the concept of the center of gravity in physics, we explore the regional differences in temporal-spatial coal consumption and the factors influencing them. The results show that China’s… (More)
Acute mountain sickness (AMS) is a dangerous hypoxic illness that can affect humans who rapidly reach a high altitude above 2500m. In the study, we investigated the changes of cytokines induced by plateau, and the acetazolamide (ACZ) influenced the cytokines in rats exposed to high altitude. Wistar rats were divided into low altitude (Control), high… (More)
Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are responsible for drug resistance, metastasis and recurrence of cancers. However, there is still no clinically approved drug that can effectively eradicate CSCs. Thus, it is crucial and important to develop specific CSC-targeting agents. Chiral molecular recognition of DNA plays an important role in rational drug design. Among… (More)
A label-free ratiometric electrochemical biosensor was constructed for monitoring intracellular redox homeostasis by DNA metallization-mediated hybridization chain reaction amplification. This platform could also be used to discriminate cancer cells and normal cells.
By the combination of quaternized magnetic nanoparticles and a label-free exonuclease III-assisted DNA amplification assay, we report a simple and facile strategy for the convenient and highly sensitive detection of microbial pathogens, with a detection limit of down to 50 cells mL(-1).
Polyphenol compounds, such as curcumin, rutin, rifampicin, can inhibit Aβ aggregation and decrease reactive oxygen species (ROS), and have received much attention in recent years for Alzheimer's disease (AD) treatment. However, the excess metal ions in amyloid plaque can chelate to polyphenol compounds. It significantly declines the efficacy of polyphenol… (More)
Extensive studies have been done on mechanisms of acute mountain sickness (AMS), but AMS biomarkers are still little known. In the present study, we used cytokine arrays analysis to identify novel AMS-associated biomarkers in human plasma. Peripheral blood samples from 23 healthy volunteers were collected and AMS symptoms diagnosed using the Lake Louise… (More)
