BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Postmortem studies indicate that the number and density of glial cells are reduced in different brain regions of patients with depression. Glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) plays an important role in the pathogenesis of depressive disorder (DD) and might be a biomarker for damage to nerve cells. In this study, we(More)
Waste shellfish shell stacking with a significant odor and toxicity which are hazardous to human constitutes a serious environmental hazard. For utilization of waste shellfish shell resource, granule of shellfish shell (SS) was prepared from waste shellfish shell by removing cuticle, crushing, grinding and shearing emulsification and was introduced as a(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the immunologic mechanism of acupuncture at Baihui (GV 20) and Zusanli (ST 36) for treatment of depression. METHODS Eighty-four cases of depression patients were randomly divided into an electroacupuncture observation group (group A), an electroacupuncture control group (group B) and a medication control group (group C), 28 cases(More)
OBJECTIVE To search for the best method for increasing clinical therapeutic effect on apoplectic hemiplegia. METHODS One hundred and twenty cases of apoplectic hemiplegia were randomly divided into three groups in order of visiting. Group A (n = 33) were treated by scalp acupuncture combined with consciousness-restoring resuscitation method, group B (n =(More)
BACKGROUND Minimal residual disease detection in the bone marrow is usually performed in patients with acute myeloid leukemia undergoing one course of induction chemotherapy. To optimize the chemotherapy strategies, more practical and sensitive markers are needed to monitor the early treatment response during induction. For instance, peripheral blood (PB)(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare therapeutic effects between body acupuncture and scalp acupuncture combined with body acupuncture on atherosclerotic cerebral infarction at acute stage. METHODS Forty-two cases of atherosclerotic cerebral infarction at acute stage were divided into 2 groups. They were treated respectively by scalp acupuncture combined with body(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the curative mechanism of acupuncture treatment on osteoarthritis (OA). METHODS Forty cases of female SD rats were randomly divided into a normal group, a model group, an acupuncture group and a medication group, 10 cases in each group. OA animal model was established by using the method of heel tendon resection for unilateral hind(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe therapeutic efficacy of osteoarthritis treated by electroacupuncture, and explore its function of promoting cartilage restoration. METHODS According to random digital table, sixty cases of knee osteoarthritis (60 knees) were randomly divided into an electroacupuncture group and a physiotherapy group, 15 cases (30 knees) in each one.(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the influence of acupuncture treatment on proinflammatory cytokines of osteoarthritic (OA) cartilage. METHODS Forty female SD rats were randomly and averagely divided into four groups: the normal, model, acupuncture and control group. The method of heel tendon resection for unilateral hind limb was used to establish OA animal(More)
A wide range of applications in computer intelligence and computer graphics require computing geodesics accurately and efficiently. The fast marching method (FMM) is widely used to solve this problem, of which the complexity is O(N\log N), where N is the total number of nodes on the manifold. A fast sweeping method (FSM) is proposed and applied on arbitrary(More)
