Cistanches Herba (CH) is thought to be a "Yang-invigorating" material in traditional Chinese medicine. We evaluated neuroprotective effects of Cistanches Herba on Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients. Moderate AD participants were divided into 3 groups: Cistanches Herba capsule (CH, n = 10), Donepezil tablet (DON, n = 8), and control group without treatment (n(More)
We screened anti-Aβ1-42 antibodies from a human Alzheimer's disease (AD) specific single chain variable fragment (scFv) phage display library and assessed their effects in APP/PS1 transgenic mice. Reverse transcription-PCR was used to construct the scFv phage display library, and screening identified 11A5 as an anti-Aβ1-42 antibody. We mixed 11A5 and the(More)
A novel self-trimming algorithm for A/D converters [1,2] has been presented which continually trims thresholds in the flash A/D subconverters of two-stage and pipelined A/D converters. Roughly speaking, it trims thresholds up or down by small increments in such a way as to smooth out irregularities in the code density. This paper presents the mathematical(More)
BACKGROUND Bilateral carotid artery occlusion (2-vessel occlusion, 2VO) in rats is a classic and frequently used approach to develop an animal model of chronic cerebral hypoperfusion. However, this method results in substantial mortality in rats. NEW METHOD We investigated whether a modified 2VO procedure, which induces bilateral carotid artery stenosis(More)
The red-emitting phosphor Ca0.8 Zn0.2 TiO3 :Pr3+ was synthesized using an ethylene glycol (EG)-assisted hydrothermal method. The effects of additional amounts of and order of adding EG, plus hydrothermal temperature, time, and pH on the composition, morphology and optical properties of the titanate phosphors were studied. The crystalline phases of the(More)
To analyze the localization of attenuated Salmonella typhimurium after oral immunization. Prokaryotic expression plasmid pYA33-DsRed, carrying the RFP gene, was constructed and electro-transformed into an attenuated strain X4550 of Salmonella typhimurium, the recombinant bacteria were named as X4550 (33-DsRed). The macrophage cell line RAW264.7 and bone(More)
