Patient-specific core decompression surgery for early-stage ischemic necrosis of the femoral head

Introduction Core decompression is an efficient treatment for early stage ischemic necrosis of the femoral head. In conventional procedures, the pre-operative X-ray only shows one plane of the ischemic area, which often results in inaccurate drilling. This paper introduces a new method that uses computer-assisted technology and rapid prototyping to enhance drilling accuracy during ...

Background Depression is highly associated with dementia, and this study will compare the frequencies, severity, and symptoms of depression between dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) and Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Methods Frequency of depression was determined according to the DSM-IV criteria for major depression or the National Institute of Mental Health criteria for depression in AD ...

Fusion expression of Occludin extracellular loops and an α-helical bundle: A new research model for tight junction

Tight junctions (TJs) are the outermost structures of intercellular junctions and are highly specialized membrane domains involved in many important cellular processes. However, most TJ proteins are four-time transmembrane proteins and are difficult to express in their correct soluble form, which limits their functional study and therapeutic application. Human occludin (OCLN) is a ...

Titanium plate fixation versus conventional approach in the treatment of deep sternal wound infection

Background Deep sternal wound infection (DSWI) is a serious complication post cardiac surgery and associated with increased mortality, morbidity and cost. Sternal titanium plate fixation could be an effective approach to treat DSWI. We sought to compare the effectiveness of titanium plate fixation with conventional approach in the treatment of DSWI. Methods Retrospective data was ...

Proteomic Characterization of Differential Abundant Proteins Accumulated between Lower and Upper Epidermises of Fleshy Scales in Onion (Allium cepa L.) Bulbs

The onion (Allium cepa L.) is widely planted worldwide as a valuable vegetable crop. The scales of an onion bulb are a modified type of leaf. The one-layer-cell epidermis of onion scales is commonly used as a model experimental material in botany and molecular biology. The lower epidermis (LE) and upper epidermis (UE) of onion scales display obvious differences in microscopic ...

Multiple statuses of through-wall human being detection based on compressed UWB radar data

Ultra-wideband (UWB) radar is one of the most favorable methods for through-wall human detection due to its strong penetration ability in many common non-metallic obstructions. The paper proposed the residual subspace projection method for multiple statuses of through-wall human being detection behind. And the compressed sensing method was presented to collect incomplete UWB radar ...

Construction and evaluation of a high-density SNP array for the Pacific oyster (Crassostrea gigas)

Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are widely used in genetics and genomics research. The Pacific oyster (Crassostrea gigas) is an economically and ecologically important marine bivalve, and it possesses one of the highest levels of genomic DNA variation among animal species. Pacific oyster SNPs have been extensively investigated; however, the mechanisms by which these SNPs may ...

Estimating nutrient uptake requirements for soybean using QUEFTS model in China

Estimating balanced nutrient requirements for soybean (Glycine max [L.] Merr) in China is essential for identifying optimal fertilizer application regimes to increase soybean yield and nutrient use efficiency. We collected datasets from field experiments in major soybean planting regions of China between 2001 and 2015 to assess the relationship between soybean seed yield and ...

Regorafenib inhibited gastric cancer cells growth and invasion via CXCR4 activated Wnt pathway

Aim Regorafenib is an oral small-molecule multi kinase inhibitor. Recently, several clinical trials have revealed that regorafenib has an anti-tumor activity in gastric cancer. However, only part of patients benefit from regorafenib, and the mechanisms of regorafenib’s anti-tumor effect need further demonstrating. In this study, we would assess the potential anti-tumor effects and ...

Drug-eluting balloon versus bare-mental stent and drug-eluting stent for de novo coronary artery disease: A systematic review and meta-analysis of 14 randomized controlled trials

Background Drug-eluting balloon (DEB) has become an alternative option to drug-eluting stent (DES) for the treatment of in-stent restenosis (ISR). However, the effect of drug-eluting balloon with regular bare-mental stent (BMS) in de novo coronary artery disease (CAD) is unclear. This meta-analysis aimed to evaluate the efficacy of DEB with regular BMS compared to BMS or DES in de ...

Determination of influenza B identity and potency in quadrivalent inactivated influenza vaccines using lineage-specific monoclonal antibodies

Co-circulation of two antigenically and genetically distinct lineages of influenza B virus, represented by prototype viruses B/Victoria/2/1987 and B/Yamagata/16/1988, has led to the development of quadrivalent influenza vaccines that contain two influenza B antigens. The inclusion of two influenza B antigens presents challenges for the production and regulation of inactivated ...

A vaccine with Aβ oligomer-specific mimotope attenuates cognitive deficits and brain pathologies in transgenic mice with Alzheimer’s disease

Background β-Amyloid peptide (Aβ) oligomers are initial factors used to induce Alzheimer’s disease (AD) development, and Aβ monomers have normal physiological function. The antibodies or vaccines against Aβ monomers have serious problems, such as side effects and low curative effects. Therefore, it is essential to specifically target Aβ oligomers rather than monomers for the ...

Interocular symmetry of the peripapillary choroidal thickness and retinal nerve fibre layer thickness in healthy adults with isometropia

Background The aim of this study was to determine the interocular differences in the peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL), peripapillary choroidal thickness (PCT) and subfoveal choroidal thickness (SFCT) in healthy adults with isometropia, using enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI SD-OCT). Methods One hundred healthy Chinese adults with spherical ...

Lipedematous alopecia: clinical and histological analysis of the first male Chinese

Background Lipedematous alopecia (LA) is a rare disorder clinically characterized by a thick boggy scalp and varying severity of hair loss, which primarily occurs in black female adults. In this study, we reported one male adult Chinese diagnosed with lipedematous alopecia for the first time. Case presentation A Chinese male, aged 20 years old, admitted to Shandong Provincial ...

\(B_c\rightarrow B_{sJ}\) form factors and \(B_c\) decays into \(B_{sJ}\) in covariant light-front approach

We suggest to study the \(B_{s}\) and its excitations \(B_{sJ}\) in the \(B_c\) decays. We calculate the \(B_c\rightarrow B_{sJ}\) and \(B_c\rightarrow B_{J}\) form factors within the covariant light-front quark model, where the \(B_{sJ}\) and \(B_{J}\) denote an s-wave or p-wave \(\bar{b}s\) and \(\bar{b}d\) meson, respectively. The form factors at \(q^2=0\) are directly computed ...

iTRAQ-Based Proteomics Reveals Novel Biomarkers for Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a gradual lung disease with a survival of less than 5 years post-diagnosis for most patients. Poor molecular description of IPF has led to unsatisfactory interpretation of the pathogenesis of this disease, resulting in the lack of successful treatments. The objective of this study was to discover novel noninvasive biomarkers for the diagnosis ...
