BACKGROUND Compared with the zotarolimus-eluting stent (ZES), the everolimus-eluting stent (EES) has reduced the risk of stent restenosis and thrombosis as found in a number of randomized-controlled trials (RCTs). However, the benefits have been variable. MATERIALS AND METHODS We evaluate the long-term effect of EES and ZES on the risk of stent thrombosis(More)
The glucose-inhibited neurons present in the lateral hypothalamic area are regarded as glucose detectors. This structure is involved in the regulation of food intake through extracellular blood glucose concentrations, and plays a crucial role in obesity onset. In the present study, obesity models established with high fat feeding were treated with(More)
When evaluating the accessibility of a website, we usually resort to sampling methods to reduce the cost of evaluation. In this kind of approaches, a small subset of pages in a website are chosen for evaluating the accessibility value of the whole website. Good sampling quality means the selected subset can represent well the accessibility level of the(More)
BACKGROUND Di-(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) is a common plasticizer used in industrial and diverse consumer products. Animal studies indicate DEHP caused developmental, reproductive, and hepatic toxicities. However, human studies of the potential effects of DEHP are limited. METHODS The exposed site with a history of over 20 years of waste plastic(More)
BACKGROUND Novel interventions are needed to improve lifestyle and prevent noncommunicable diseases, the leading cause of death and disability globally. This study aimed to systematically review, synthesize, and grade scientific evidence on effectiveness of novel information and communication technology to reduce noncommunicable disease risk. METHODS AND(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effect of electroacupuncture (EA) stimulation of different acupoints or acupoint pairs on gastric motility so as to explore their modulation regularities under different conditions. METHODS SD rats were randomly divided into normal control, starvation (food-deprivation for 24 h), atropine (antagonist for M-receptor), acetylcholine(More)
Gastric dysmotility is one of the major pathophysiological factors in functional gastrointestinal disorders. Acupuncture, as one of the alternative approaches, is efficacious in the treatment of gastrointestinal motility disorders; however, the mechanism underlying its action is unclear. In the present study, we used both capsazepine, a TRPV1 antagonist,(More)
A kind of graphene oxide/silver (GO/Ag) nanocomposites with high Surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) activity were fabricated via a facile and green liquid phase reduction method. The synthesized materials were characterized in detail using various microscopic and spectroscopic techniques. In this method, the GO sheets worked as a holder which makes(More)
Background. Previous studies have demonstrated the efficacy of frequency-specific EAS. However, evaluation of intensity-response effects is challenging and has yet to be addressed. Aims. Using cisapride to promote gastric emptying, we measured the intensity-response relationship of EA at ST25 on gastric motility. Methods. We determined the effects of EA at(More)
