We investigated the long-term effects and safety of botulinum toxin-A (BTX-A) for treating trigeminal neuralgia (TN). We also studied long-term maintenance of this therapeutic effect. A visual analog scale (VAS) score, pain attack frequency per day, patient’s overall response to treatment and side effects during 14-month follow-up were evaluated in 88(More)
This study explored the effects of mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) on the increased risk of developing Alzheimer's disease (AD) in rats with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).

The aim of this study was to examine whether the circulating CXC chemokine ligand-12 (CXCL12) level can predict a 6-month outcome in Chinese patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS). In a prospective study, CXCL12 levels were measured on admission in the serum of 304 consecutive patients with AIS. The prognostic value of CXCL12 to predict the functional(More)
Deep venous thrombosis (DVT) is a complication of stroke. Our aim was to determine whether d-dimer plasma levels at admission could be a risk factor for DVT in Chinese patients with acute intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). From December 2012 to November 2014, all patients with first-ever acute ICH were included. At baseline, the demographical and clinical data(More)
