The aim of the study is to investigate the possible mechanism of oxidative stress in the high free fatty acids (FFAs)-induced hypertension. Male Sprague–Dawley rat models were established and classified into three groups, namely the control group (NC group), the FFA group, and the N-acetylcysteine (NAC) group. Blood pressure (BP) was recorded. An organ(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate photopic and mesopic color discrimination in patients with different types of light-filtering intraocular lenses (IOLs). SETTING Peking University Third Hospital, Peking University Eye Center, Beijing, China. METHODS Cataract patients with different types of IOLs were enrolled 3 months postoperatively. Overall and partial color(More)
Middle ear infection (or inflammation) is the most common pathological condition that causes fluid to accumulate in the middle ear, disrupting cochlear homeostasis. Lipopolysaccharide, a product of bacteriolysis, activates macrophages and causes release of inflammatory cytokines. Many studies have shown that lipopolysaccharides cause functional and(More)
PURPOSE Dynamic visual acuity (DVA) is a relatively independent parameter for evaluating the ability to distinguish details of a moving target. The present study has been designed to discuss the extent to which age-related cataract impacts DVA in elderly individuals and to determine whether it could be restored after bilateral phacoemulsification combined(More)
Browning is one of the adverse factors that affects quality and shelf life of fresh-cut potatoes. The present paper investigates the effects and mechanism of a curing treatment to control the browning of fresh-cut potatoes. Potatoes were placed in curing conditions (16 ± 1 °C, 90 % RH) for 10 days immediately after harvest. The purpose of curing is to(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the therapeutic effect of topical corticosteroids injection and systemic application in the treatment of typing idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss (ISSNHL). METHODS Total of 438 patients with ISSNHL, including 76 with hearing loss in low-middle frequencies, 43 in middle-high frequencies, 162 in all frequencies and 157 in(More)
The vestibular blood-labyrinth barrier (BLB) is comprised of perivascular-resident macrophage-like melanocytes (PVM/Ms) and pericytes (PCs), in addition to endothelial cells (ECs) and basement membrane (BM), and bears strong resemblance to the cochlear BLB in the stria vascularis. Over the past few decades, in vitro cell-based models have been widely used(More)
