Assessment of a multiple biomarker panel for diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis

Background The aim of the study was to assess a panel of promising biomarkers for their ability to improve diagnosis of sporadic amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Methods Forty patients with sporadic ALS and 40 controls with other neurological diseases were evaluated. Levels of phosphorylated neurofilament heavy chain (pNfH), S100-β, cystatin C, and chitotriosidase (CHIT) in...

Screening for Cognitive Impairments in Primary Blepharospasm

Backgrounds Studies have reported that non-motor symptoms are an important component of primary dystonia. However, evidence supporting cognitive impairment in primary dystonia is limited and contradictory. Methods We applied the Chinese version of the Addenbrooke’s Cognitive Examination-Revised and the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) to screen for cognitive impairment in...

Salidroside alleviates oxidative stress in the liver with non- alcoholic steatohepatitis in rats

Background Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is characterized by fat accumulation in the hepatocyte, inflammation, liver cell injury, and varying degrees of fibrosis, and can lead to oxidative stress in liver. Here, we investigated whether Salidroside, a natural phenolic antioxidant product, can protect rat from liver injury during NASH. Methods NASH model was established by...

The utilization and barriers of Pap smear among women with visual impairment

Background Many evidences illustrate that the Pap smear screening successfully reduces if the cervical cancer could be detected and treated sufficiently early. People with disability were higher comorbidity prevalence, and less likely to use preventive health care and health promotion activities. There were also to demonstrate that people with visual impairment has less access to...

Integrated Wavelength-Tunable Light Source for Optical Gas Sensing Systems

A compact instrument consisting of a distributed feedback laser (DFB) at 1.65 μm was developed as a light source for gas sensing systems using tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (TDLAS) technique. The wavelength of laser is tuned by adjusting the laser working temperature and injection current, which are performed by self-developed temperature controller and current...

Space-time scaling invariant traveling wave solutions of some nonlinear fractional equations

In this paper, a homogeneous principle is proposed to seek the space-time scaling invariant traveling wave solutions expressed by power functions for some fractional differential equations. Applying this principle to generalized fractional Benjamin-Ono equations and generalized fractional ZakharovKuznetsov equations, the traveling wave solutions expressed by power functions have...

Compensatory patterns of collateral flow in stroke patients with unilateral and bilateral carotid stenosis

Background Collateral pathways are important in maintaining adequate cerebral blood flow in patients with carotid stenosis. We aimed to evaluate the hemodynamic patterns in relation to carotid stenosis in acute stroke patients. Methods Consecutive 586 stroke patients in a hospital based cohort were included in the present study. Carotid duplex was performed to identify patients...

Structural and compositional analysis of a casting mold sherd from ancient China

Casting had symbolic significance and was strictly controlled in the Shang dynasty of ancient China. Vessel casting was mainly distributed around the Shang capital, Yin Ruins, which indicates a rigorous centralization of authority. Thus, for a casting mold to be excavated far from the capital region is rare. In addition to some bronze vessel molds excavated at the Buyao Village...

A Simple Scoring System Predicting the Survival Time of Patients with Bone Metastases after RT

Objectives This study aimed to develop a scoring system to predict the survival time of patients with bone metastases after radiation therapy (RT). The scoring system can guide physicians to a better selection of appropriate treatment regimens. Materials and Methods The medical records of 125 patients with bone metastases treated with RT between January 2007 and September 2010...

Components of Metabolic Syndrome as Risk Factors for Hearing Threshold Shifts

Background Hearing loss was a common, chronically disabling condition in the general population and had been associated with several inflammatory diseases. Metabolic syndrome, which was associated with insulin resistance and visceral obesity, was considered a chronic inflammatory disease. To date, few attempts had been made to establish a direct relationship between hearing loss...

Four periodic solutions for a food-limited two-species Gilpin-Ayala type predator-prey system with harvesting terms on time scales

By using Mawhin’s coincidence degree theory, this paper establishes a new criterion on the existence of four periodic solutions for a food-limited two-species Gilpin-Ayala type predator-prey system with harvesting terms on time scales. An example is given to illustrate the effectiveness of the result.

Multiple positive periodic solutions for a food-limited two-species Gilpin-Ayala competition patch system with periodic harvesting terms

By using Mawhin’s coincidence degree theory and some inequality techniques, this paper establishes a new sufficient condition on the existence of at least eight positive periodic solutions for a food-limited two-species Gilpin-Ayala competition patch system with periodic harvesting terms. An example is given to illustrate the effectiveness of the result.
