This study aimed to investigate neuroprotection of Danhong injection (DHI) in a rat model of cerebral ischemia using (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography ((18)F-FDG-PET). Method. Rats were divided into 5 groups: sham group, ischemia-reperfusion untreated (IRU) group, DHI-1 group (DHI 1 mL/kg/d), DHI-2 group (DHI 2 mL/kg/d), and DHI-4 group(More)
A finite element analysis (FEA) model was previously developed by the current authors to simulate the fused deposition modelling (FDM) process. The model considered coupled thermal and mechanical phenomena and incorporated an element activation function to mimic the additive nature of FDM. Due to repetitive heating and cooling in the FDM process, residual(More)
Mental health problems are highly prevalent and appear to be increasing in frequency and severity among the college student population. The upsurge in mobile and wearable wireless technologies capable of intense, longitudinal tracking of individuals, provide valuable opportunities to examine temporal patterns and dynamic interactions of key variables in(More)
Glycyrrhetinic acid (GA) is an ingredient of triterpene saponins found in Gancao (Radix Glycyrrhizae). Here, we investigated the protective effects of GA in H9c2 cells, and explored its possible mechanism of action. Different concentrations of GA were used to treat H9c2 cells under oxygen glucose deprivation. We analyzed cell necrosis and apoptosis using(More)
Hypaconitine (HA) and glycyrrhetinic acid (GA) are active components of Fuzi (Aconitum carmichaelii) and Gancao (Glycyrrhiza uralensis Fisch); they have been used in compatibility for chronic heart failure (CHF) from ancient times. The purpose of the present research was to explore whether apoptosis pathways were related with the protective effects of HA +(More)
