BACKGROUND In China and other middle-income countries, neuropsychiatric conditions are the most important cause of ill health in men and women, but efforts to scale up mental health services have been hampered by the absence of high-quality, country-specific data for the prevalence, treatment, and associated disability of different types of mental(More)
OBJECTIVES Studies conducted in large populations of patients and providing full information on Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) antibiotic resistance are needed to determine the efficacy of sequential therapy (SQT) against this pathogen. This study compared eradication rates with SQT and standard triple therapy (STT), and evaluated the impact of antibiotic(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the ettect and side-ettect of fluoxetine and combination of fluoxetine and Chinese or Tibetan medicine in treating senile depression in plateau district. Methods Ninety patients with diagnosis of senile depression conformed to CCMD-3 standard, in plateau district of 2260 - 3200 m altitude were randomly divided into three groups and(More)
Mycoplasma bovis is the causative agent of Mycoplasma bovis-associated disease (MbAD). Although the mechanisms underlying M. bovis adherence to host cells is not clear, recent studies have shown that the cell surface protein α-enolase facilitates bacterial invasion and dissemination in the infected host. In this study, we cloned, expressed and purified(More)
BACKGROUND Hybrid therapy has recently attracted widespread attention. However, many issues require further exploration. For example, research in regions with high antibiotic resistance rates is limited, and the correlation between eradication efficacy and antibiotic resistance remains unclear. The aim of this study was to determine the efficacy,(More)
The Support Vector Classification (SVC) model was constructed in this study by applying the near infrared (NIR) analysis technology combined with the chemometrics method to classify and distinguish 11 types of vegetable oil, including "restaurant waste oil". Partial least squares-discriminate analysis (PLS-DA) and GA-SVC classification models were(More)
As natural experiments, famines provide a unique opportunity to test the health consequences of nutritional deprivation during the critical period of early life. Using data on 4972 Chinese born between 1956 and 1963 who participated in a large mental health epidemiology survey conducted between 2001 and 2005, we investigated the potential impact of exposure(More)
BACKGROUND With markedly increased antibiotic resistance and unsatisfactory efficacies of common empiric eradication regimens in the mainland of China, tailored therapy may be the best choice to achieve good efficacy. This study compared the eradication rates, safety, and compliance of tailored therapy to those of triple therapy plus bismuth and concomitant(More)
BACKGROUND Large-scale multi-region studies are urgently needed to provide comprehensive and up-to-date information on the antibiotic resistance of Helicobacter pylori that is critical for selecting the most optimal eradication regimens. AIMS To determine the resistance patterns of Helicobacter pylori strains isolated from dyspeptic patients. METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND Although outcomes among people with schizophrenia differ by social context, this has rarely been examined across rural v. urban settings. For individuals with schizophrenia, employment is widely recognised as a critical ingredient of social integration.
