OBJECTIVE To study the effects of different immunodepressants on the sperm parameters of kidney transplant recipients. METHODS In 15 healthy fertile men and 37 kidney transplant recipients, ejaculates were aseptically obtained by masturbation. Thirty-seven patients were divided into two groups, 20 patients were treated with Prograf (FK506) combination(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effects of the active constituents of Alisma orientalis on the expression of bikunin mRNA in rat urolithiasis model, and explore the mechanism of this traditional Chinese medicine on prevention of urinary calculi. METHODS Modern phytochemistry and bioactivity guided isolation techniques were applied to extract the active(More)
AIM The effects of certain uropathogenic microorganisms (Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis and Mycobacterium tuberculosis) on human sperm motility characteristics were studied in vitro. METHODS In 10 healthy fertile men, ejaculates were aseptically obtained by masturbation and with a swim-up technique, a sperm(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the effect of different extracts of Alisma orientalis on urinary calcium oxalate stone formation in rats and to identify the effective constituents. METHOD Different extracts were administered through a stomach tube to rats of different groups with renal calcium oxalate stones induced by ethylene glycol (EG) and ammonium chloride (AC).(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE Application of magnetic nano- particles as gene carrier in gene therapy of tumor has developed quickly. To obtain a new type non-viral gene introduction and therapy system,which is convenient,and can drive target gene to express highly and stably,this study was designed to explore the preparation of superparamagnetic dextran iron(More)
Matrix metalloproteinase-1 (MMP-1) 1G/2G (-1,607) polymorphisms have been identified and shown to influence the transcription of the MMP-1 gene. In order to compare the expression of MMP-1 with different MMP-1 gene promoter alleles after force loading, human periodontal ligament (PDL) cells were cultured and genotyped into three alleles by polymerase chain(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate transurethral holmium laser incision, its safety and effect in the treatment of male urethral stricture. METHODS Thirty-eight males with urethral stricture were treated by 1045 W holmium laser urethrotomy, 18 with the stricture length shorter than 1.0 cm, 9 between 1.0 cm and 1.5 cm, 7 longer than 1.5 cm , 4 with occlusive stricture(More)
Deletion or mutation of dentin matrix protein 1 (DMP1) leads to hypophosphatemic rickets and defects within the dentin. However, it is largely unknown if this pathological change is a direct role of DMP1 or an indirect role of phosphate (Pi) or both. It has also been previously shown that Klotho-deficient mice, which displayed a high Pi level due to a(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of the small interfering RNA plasmid-dextran magnetic nanoparticles (siRNA-DMN) combination with external magnetic fields on silencing survivin gene expression of bladder cancer cells and apoptosis when DMN used as gene carrier to transfer siRNA-survivin recombinant plasmid in vivo. METHODS The siRNA-survivin(More)
OBJECTIVE To inhibit the expression of connexin43 (Cx43) in the human corpus cavernosum penis smooth muscle cells by small interfering RNA (siRNA) and detect the gap junction intercellular communication (GJIC), and to investigate the application of siRNA technology in the gap junction of corpus cavernosum penis smooth muscle cells and its role in the penile(More)
