OBJECTIVE To investigate genotype of HCV infection among residents in a rural village, Hebei Province. METHODS Blood samples of the 520 residents were collected, and C/E1 of HCV genome of the 483 samples were obtained by RT-PCR amplifying, and the gene sequences were analyzed and the polygenetic tree were drawn by the software Mega 4.0. RESULTS In 483(More)
BACKGROUND Plantar pressure is a key factor for predicting ulceration in the foot of a diabetes patient. SUBJECTS AND METHODS We recruited a group of 100 Chinese patients with type 2 diabetes and an age-, sex-, weight-, and height-matched group of 100 Chinese subjects without diabetes. We obtained plantar pressure data using a Footscan(®) gait system(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the distribution of HBV genotype and serotype from Tibetan in Tongde, Qinghai. METHODS Nested polymerase chain reaction (nPCR) was used for amplification of S gene and C gene of HBV from sera carried by Tibetan chronic HBV carrier in Tongde, Qinghai, then the HBV DNA positive products were sequenced by direct sequencing. Genotype and(More)
BACKGROUND Plantar pressure serves as a key factor for predicting ulceration in the feet of diabetes patients. We designed this study to analyze plantar pressure changes and correlating risk factors in Chinese patients with type 2 diabetes. METHODS We recruited 65 patients with type 2 diabetes. They were invited to participate in the second wave 2 years(More)
Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) promotes synaptic remodeling and modulates the function of other neurotransmitters. Allergic inflammation triggers neuronal dysfunction and structural changes in the airways. Genetic polymorphisms in functional regions of the BDNF gene have a plausible role in modulating the risk of child asthma (CA). This study(More)
