OBJECTIVE To explore the role of aquaporin 1 (AQP1) in the initiation and development of hypertensive disorder complicating pregnancy (HDCP), and to analyze the relationship between AQP1 expression and ascites formation of patients with eclampsia. METHODS Sixty inpatients with HDCP were recruited in the study, including 20 patients with gestational(More)
The human EGFR family consists of four type-1 transmembrane tyrosine kinase receptors: HER1 (EGFR, ErbB1), HER2 (Neu, ErbB2), HER3 (ErbB3), and HER4 (ErbB4). HER3 can dimerize with EGFR, HER2 and even c-Met and likely plays a central role in the response to EGFR-targeted therapy. Because HER3 lacks significant kinase activity and cannot be inhibited by(More)
BACKGROUND Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) loss/seroconversion is considered to be the ideal endpoint of antiviral therapy and the ultimate treatment goal in chronic hepatitis B (CHB). This study aimed to assess the patterns of HBsAg kinetics in CHB patients who achieved HBsAg loss during the treatment of pegylated interferon (PEG-IFN) α-2a. METHODS A(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the influence of vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene Bsm I, Fok I, Taq I and Apa I polymorphisms on the response to antiviral therapy in patients with chronic hepatitis C (CHC). METHODS There were total 124 patients with CHC treated with pegylated interferon plus ribavirin. VDR gene Bsm I, Fok I Taq I and Apa I polymorphisms were analyzed in(More)
A new flavone glycoside, eupatilin 7-O-β-d-glucopyranoside (1) and a new flavone, 5,6,2',4'-tetrahydroxy-7,5'-dimethoxyflavone (2), were isolated from Artemisia argyi. Their structures were unambiguously elucidated by extensive spectroscopic analysis. Both flavonoids were evaluated for in vitro anticoagulation activities. Compound 1 significantly extended(More)
