Monocytic C-C chemokine receptor 5 expression increases in in vitro intermittent hypoxia condition and in severe obstructive sleep apnea patients

PurposeObstructive sleep apnea (OSA) patients have higher risk of cardiovascular disease. C-C chemokine receptor 5 (CCR5), as an important receptor for monocyte recruitment and the initiation of atherosclerosis, was studied under intermittent hypoxia and in OSA patients.MethodsThe expression and function of CCR5 regulated by intermittent hypoxia in monocytic THP-1 cells were...

Survival predictors in elderly patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome: a prospective observational cohort study

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) has a high mortality rate in intensive care units (ICU). The elderly patients remain to be increased of ICU patients. The aim is to investigate the survival predictors of elderly patients with ARDS. We reported a prospective observational cohort research, including the patients with ARDS between October 2012 and May 2015. Demographic...

The gender difference of snore distribution and increased tendency to snore in women with menopausal syndrome: a general population study

Purpose Sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) is a prevalent disorder with a major impact in women, especially postmenopausal women. However, few studies have investigated the prevalence of a specific SDB, snoring, among women especially those with menopausal syndrome. Methods Computer-assisted telephone interviews were conducted in Taiwan. Adults over 20 years of age were interviewed...

Pure electron-electron dephasing in percolative aluminum ultrathin film grown by molecular beam epitaxy

We have successfully grown ultrathin continuous aluminum film by molecular beam epitaxy. This percolative aluminum film is single crystalline and strain free as characterized by transmission electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy. The weak anti-localization effect is observed in the temperature range of 1.4 to 10 K with this sample, and it reveals that, for the first...

Factors responsible for poor sleep quality in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease

Background Sleep disturbance is a common complaint in patients with chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD). However, the factors resulting in sleep disturbance remain unclear. This retrospective, observational, multicenter study aimed to identify the factors associated with sleep disturbance in patients with COPD. Methods The study was a retrospective, observational, and...

Increased C-C Chemokine Receptor 2 Gene Expression in Monocytes of Severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea Patients and under Intermittent Hypoxia

Background Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is known to be a risk factor of coronary artery disease. The chemotaxis and adhesion of monocytes to the endothelium in the early atherosclerosis is important. This study aimed to investigate the effect of intermittent hypoxia, the hallmark of OSA, on the chemotaxis and adhesion of monocytes. Methods Peripheral blood was sampled from 54...

Technical Note on Inventory Model with Defective Items

Under a reasonable assumption, we derive an analytical approach that verifies uniqueness of the optimal solution for stochastic inventory models with defective items. Our approach implies a robust method to find the optimal solution.

Diffuse alveolar damage associated mortality in selected acute respiratory distress syndrome patients with open lung biopsy

Introduction Diffuse alveolar damage (DAD) is the pathological hallmark of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), however, the presence of DAD in the clinical criteria of ARDS patients by Berlin definition is little known. This study is designed to investigate the role of DAD in ARDS patients who underwent open lung biopsy. Methods We retrospectively reviewed all ARDS...
