Open charm contributions to the E1 transitions of \(\psi (3686)\) and \(\psi (3770)\rightarrow \gamma \chi _{cJ}\)

The E1 transitions of \(\psi (3686)\) and \(\psi (3770)\rightarrow \gamma \chi _{cJ}\) are investigated in a non-relativistic effective field theory (NREFT) where the open charm effects are included systematically as the leading corrections. It also allows a self-consistent inclusion of the S–D mixing in the same framework. We are able to show that the open charm contributions are ...

MicroRNA-32 promotes calcification in vascular smooth muscle cells: Implications as a novel marker for coronary artery calcification

Cardiovascular calcification is one of the most severe outcomes associated with cardiovascular disease and often results in significant morbidity and mortality. Previous reports indicated that epigenomic regulation of microRNAs (miRNAs) might play important roles in vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) calcification. Here, we identified potential key miRNAs involved in vascular ...

Mid-term results of coronary bypass graft surgery in patients with ischaemic left ventricular systolic dysfunction and no detected myocardial viability

OBJECTIVES There are concerns about effects of surgical revascularization on patients with ischaemic systolic dysfunction when no signs of myocardial viability have been detected by nuclear imaging preoperatively. We reviewed our data to determine the efficacy of coronary bypass graft in this special patient cohort.

Rapid Detection of Ricin in Serum Based on Cu-Chelated Magnetic Beads Using Mass Spectrometry

residue present at the 4324 position from a highly conserved loop region of 28S rRNA. This activity prevents Yong-Qiang Zhao and Jian Song contributed equally to this work. the formation of the critical

Association of AT1R polymorphism with hypertension risk: An update meta-analysis based on 28,952 subjects

Background: Previous studies have shown that angiotensin II AT1 receptor gene (AT1R) polymorphisms are associated with the risk for hypertension. However, the results remain controversial. In the present study, we performed a meta-analysis to systematically summarize the association between AT1R genetic polymorphisms and the risk for hypertension.

Molecular diagnosis and comprehensive treatment of multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 in Southeastern Chinese

Background Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 (MEN2) is an autosomal dominant inherited endocrine malignancy syndrome. Early and normative surgery is the only curative method for MEN 2-related medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC). In patients with adrenal pheochromocytoma, cortical-sparing adrenalectomy (CSA) can be utilized to preserve adrenocortical function. Methods We present ...

Fine mapping of a large-effect QTL conferring Fusarium crown rot resistance on the long arm of chromosome 3B in hexaploid wheat

Background Fusarium crown rot (FCR) is a major cereal disease in semi-arid areas worldwide. Of the various QTL reported, the one on chromosome arm 3BL (Qcrs.cpi-3B) has the largest effect that can be consistently detected in different genetic backgrounds. Nine sets of near isogenic lines (NILs) for this locus were made available in a previous study. To identify markers that could ...

Outcomes of Technical Variant Liver Transplantation versus Whole Liver Transplantation for Pediatric Patients: A Meta-Analysis

Objective To overcome the shortage of appropriate-sized whole liver grafts for children, technical variant liver transplantation has been practiced for decades. We perform a meta-analysis to compare the survival rates and incidence of surgical complications between pediatric whole liver transplantation and technical variant liver transplantation. Methods To identify relevant ...

Meta-Analysis of Apolipoprotein E Gene Polymorphism and Susceptibility of Myocardial Infarction

A number of case-control studies have been conducted to clarify the association between ApoE polymorphisms and myocardial infarction (MI); however, the results are inconsistent. This meta-analysis was performed to clarify this issue using all the available evidence. Searching in PubMed retrieved all eligible articles. A total of 33 studies were included in this meta-analysis, ...

Prognostic analysis of esophageal cancer in elderly patients: metastatic lymph node ratio versus 2010 AJCC classification by lymph nodes

Background Recent studies have proposed a new prognostic factor (metastatic lymph node ratio, or MLNR) for patients with esophageal cancer (EC). However, to the best of our knowledge, there have been no studies conducted to date regarding MLNR in elderly patients. The aim of this study was to determine the prognostic value of MLNR staging compared with the 2010 American Joint ...

Tantalum Nitride-Decorated Titanium with Enhanced Resistance to Microbiologically Induced Corrosion and Mechanical Property for Dental Application

Microbiologically induced corrosion (MIC) of metallic devices/implants in the oral region is one major cause of implant failure and metal allergy in patients. Therefore, it is crucial to develop practical approaches which can effectively prevent MIC for broad clinical applications of these materials. In the present work, tantalum nitride (TaN)-decorated titanium with promoted ...

Hunting for a scalar glueball in exclusive B decays

Although glueballs, as one of the type of exotic hadrons allowed by QCD, have been well established on the lattice, experimental searches up to this date for bound states of gluons have only produced controversial signals. In this work, using flavor SU(3) symmetry for the light quarks validated by the available experimental data, we propose an intuitive way to hunt for a scalar ...

Application of temporarily functional antibiotic-containing bone cement prosthesis in revision hip arthroplasty

Purpose To investigate the clinical outcome of two-stage revision total hip arthroplasty for infected hip arthroplasty using antibiotic-impregnated cement prosthesis. Materials and methods Forty-one patients, who suffered from an infection after hip replacement or internal fixation of femoral neck and trochanteric fractures, were treated with a two-stage revision hip arthroplasty ...

Bone Selective Protective Effect of a Novel Bone-seeking Estrogen on Trabecular Bone in Ovariectomized Rats

The drawbacks of estrogen restrict the clinical use of hormone replacement therapy, and it would be most helpful to explore new estrogenic substances that could prevent bone loss and be free from any adverse effects. We synthesized a new compound named bone-seeking estrogen (SE2) by combining 17β-estradiol (E2) with iminodiacetic acid through the Mannich reaction. E2 and SE2 were ...
