We describe here a multiplexed protein quantitation strategy that provides relative and absolute measurements of proteins in complex mixtures. At the core of this methodology is a multiplexed set of isobaric reagents that yield amine-derivatized peptides. The derivatized peptides are indistinguishable in MS, but exhibit intense low-mass MS/MS signature ions(More)
We studied 96 Chinese patients with TIAs using transcranial Doppler and duplex ultrasonography. We found intracranial stenosis or occlusion in 51% of cases and extracranial disease in 19% of cases. The most common intracranial lesion was stenosis of the terminal internal carotid artery or proximal middle cerebral artery, whereas the most common extracranial(More)
We studied 100 consecutive acute stroke patients in a Chinese population with transcranial Doppler and CT. Twenty patients had intracerebral hemorrhage and 14 patients did not have adequate temporal windows for transcranial Doppler examination. Among the remaining 66 patients, 22 patients (33%) had intracranial occlusive diseases and 3 (6%) had extracranial(More)
We studied 590 asymptomatic villagers aged > or =40 years in Liangbei County in central rural China and found 41 subjects (prevalence 6.9%) with intracranial atherosclerosis. In a multivariate analysis, the significant risk factors for intracranial stenosis were hypertension (OR 2.53; 95% CI 1.12 to 5.72), glycosuria (OR 3; 1.19 to 7.97), heart disease (OR(More)
There has been no report on the use of spiral computed tomography angiography (CTA) in the investigation of intracranial cerebral artery stenosis. A prospective pilot study was conducted to investigate the feasibility of CTA in the diagnosis of intracranial occlusive disease and its correlation with transcranial Doppler. With transcranial Doppler, 10(More)
BACKGROUND Human embryonic stem cell (hESC) lines derived from poor quality embryos usually have either normal or abnormal karyotypes. However, it is still unclear whether their biological characteristics are similar. METHODS Seven new hESC lines were established using discarded embryos. Five cell lines had normal karyotype, one was with an unbalanced(More)
