The Sex Ratio at Birth for 5,338,853 Deliveries in China from 2012 to 2015: A Facility-Based Study

Objective The accuracy of a population-based sex ratio at birth (SRB) in China has long been questioned. To depict a more accurate profile, the present study used data from a national surveillance system for health facility births to explore the characteristics of SRB in China. Methods Data from China’s National Maternal Near Miss Surveillance System between 2012 and 2015 were...

Diagnostic Accuracy of NT-ProBNP for Heart Failure with Sepsis in Patients Younger than 18 Years

This clinical study investigated plasma NT-proBNP levels as a potential predictor of heart failure in pediatric patients with sepsis. Plasma NT-ProBNP levels of 211 pediatric patients with sepsis and 126 healthy children were measured. Patients were stratified as with heart failure (HF) or without heart failure (non-HF). Patients were graded as having sepsis, severe sepsis, or...

Controlled peritoneal drainage improves survival in children with abdominal compartment syndrome

Background Children with massive ascites can develop abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS), which has been identified as an independent risk factor for mortality. Objectives The objective of this study was to assess the effectiveness of volume-controlled percutaneous catheter drainage (PCD) for treating children with massive ascites and ACS. Methods A retrospective descriptive...

Tregs Promote the Differentiation of Th17 Cells in Silica-Induced Lung Fibrosis in Mice

Background Silicosis is an occupational lung disease caused by inhalation of silica dust and characterized by lung inflammation and fibrosis. Previous study showed that Tregs regulate the process of silicosis by modulating the maintenance of immune homeostasis in the lung. Th17 cells share reciprocal developmental pathway with Tregs and play a pivotal role in the...

Stepwise increase in the prevalence of isolated systolic hypertension with the stages of chronic kidney disease

Background. Hypertension is common in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), and isolated systolic hypertension (ISH) accounts for most patients with inadequate blood pressure (BP) control. However, it remains unclear whether the prevalence of ISH would increase with the advancement of CKD. Methods. CKD patients of stages 3, 4 and 5 were recruited (n = 324). Based on office...

The Study of Aortic Stiffness in Different Hypertension Subtypes in Dialysis Patients

The aim of this study was to validate whether differences in aortic stiffness are responsible for the differences in cardiovascular mortality among hypertension subtypes. Twenty hundred and fifty continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis patients were included in the present study. They were classified into four groups: normotensives (n=92) with systolic blood pressure (SBP) <140...

Statistical inference of chromosomal homology based on gene colinearity and applications to Arabidopsis and rice

Background The identification of chromosomal homology will shed light on such mysteries of genome evolution as DNA duplication, rearrangement and loss. Several approaches have been developed to detect chromosomal homology based on gene synteny or colinearity. However, the previously reported implementations lack statistical inferences which are essential to reveal actual...

DRTF: a database of rice transcription factors

Summary: DRTF contains 2025 putative transcription factors (TFs) in Oryza sativa L. ssp. indica and 2384 in ssp. japonica, distributed in 63 families, identified by computational prediction and manual curation.
