OBJECTIVE Avascular necrosis of the femoral head is one of the most frequently reported complications in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and often requires total hip arthroplasty (THA). Our objective was to analyze the perioperative management, technical problems, clinical outcomes, and complications associated with THA in patients with(More)
Human adipose-derived stem cells (hADSC) are capable of differentiating into an osteogenic lineage. It is believed that microRNAs (miRNAs) play important roles in regulating this osteogenic differentiation of human adipose-derived cells, although its molecular mechanism remains unclear. We investigated the miRNA expression profile during osteogenic(More)
A study about the ultrasonic extraction, antioxidant capacity and identification of phenolics from Semen Astragali Complanati was undertaken. The optimised extraction condition with an orthogonal experiment design of L9(3(4)) was 50°C, 30min and 15:1 (methanol solution:sample, mL:g). An extraction yield of 40.12±1.10mg gallic acid/g dry seed and the(More)
The present study was undertaken to evaluate the potential cardioprotective effects of apricot kernel oil (AO) on the myocardial ischemia-reperfusion (IR) of rat model in vivo. The rats were divided into five groups: sham-operated, IR, low dose AO-treated IR (LD-AO+IR), medium dose AO-treated IR (MD-AO+IR) and high dose AO-treated IR (HD-AO+IR). All rats(More)
Composite porous scaffolds have attracted extensive attention in the biomedical material field. The aim of this research was to prepare a novel tri-component composite porous scaffold and to evaluate its relevant properties. The porous scaffold was composed of chitosan (CS), silk fibroin (SF), and nanohydroxyapatite particles (nHA), which we named CS/SF/nHA(More)
Interactions of three iridoid glycosides extracted from Cornus officinalis Sieb. et Zucc. (CIG) with protein were simultaneously explored by on-line dialysis sampling coupled with high-performance liquid chromatography (DS-HPLC). Three main compounds in CIG were unequivocally identified as loganin, sweroside and cornuside by comparing their t(R), MS data(More)
A simple, sensitive and specific flow-injection spectrofluorimetric method has been developed for the determination of folic acid in pharmaceuticals. The method is based on use of a lead dioxide solid-phase reactor for on-line oxidation of folic acid into a strongly fluorescent compound with a maximum excitation wavelength of 281 nm and an emission(More)
MicroRNA-182 (miR-182) is significantly downregulated in human gastric tissue samples. Overexpression of miR-182 suppresses the proliferation and colony formation of gastric cancer cells. However, new aspects of the mechanism are still emerging in gastric cancer. ANUBL1, also known as ZFAND4 (zinc finger, AN1-type domain 4), its roles are scarely reported(More)
Langerhans cell sarcoma (LCS) is a rare proliferation of Langerhans cells with overtly malignant cytologic features and spreads aggressively. LCSs show a multiorgan involvement, including skin, lymph nodes, lung, and bone. The authors report an LCS in a 74-year-old woman that involved the gallbladder and the peritoneal lymph nodes. Imaging revealed a tumor(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the interactions between Ligusticum chuanxiong Hort extract and cardiac muscle membrane receptors. METHOD The cell membrane of rabbit cardiac muscle was fixed on silicon to make cell membrane stationary phase (CMSP), and then the interactions were studied by comparing the retention characteristics of the extracts from different solvents(More)
