To analyze the efficacy of different surgical methods in treating palmar hyperhidrosis and the compensatory hyperhidrosis after surgery and to observe the efficacy of “Energy-boosting and Yin-nourishing anti-perspirant formula” on postsurgical hyperhidrosis patients. Two-hundred patients were randomly assigned to groups A (Chinese and Western medicine, T4(More)
The prevention of hyperacute rejection (HAR) triggered by interaction between the human natural antibody and xenoreactive antigenic epitope (Gal-alpha1, 3Gal) present on pig cells is the key to success in pig-to-human xenotransplantation. The phage display technology offers an effective strategy for screening peptides which can interact with the anti-Gal(More)
The carbohydrate of Gal-alpha1,3-Gal is thought to be the major antigenic epitope present on pig vascular endothelium. The peptides that mimic the binding of antigenic epitope (Gal-alpha1,3-Gal) to lectin BS-I-B4 were identified from screening a filamentous phage-displayed random library. A phage bearing the peptide NCVSPYWCEPLAPSARA has been identified to(More)
Post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD) is one of the most frequent secondary malignancies that can follow immunosuppressive therapy for solid organ transplantation, and may result in severe morbidities and even mortality. A middle-aged Han Chinese patient, prescribed with immunosuppressive cyclosporine and prednisone, developed PTLD that(More)
Background: Combined Heart and Kidney Transplantation (CHKT) has become an accepted therapy for patients with coexisting heart and renal failure. Because only a few cases can be observed in the clinical practice, there is no guideline for this treatment and a lack of long-term follow-up. Study design: For a reasonable and safe application of CHKT in the(More)
Although continuous perfusion of donor hearts for preservation during transportation has been widely applied, intermittent perfusion has been suggested as an alternative. The aim of this study was to identify the optimal intermittent perfusion protocol by investigating the effects of perfusion volume on endothelial and inflammatory marker expression by the(More)
