Abstract Owing to oversights during the production process, a pair of errors were introduced into the above article. First, in the Materials and methods section, Animals and cell lines subsection, on p. 1332, line 12, the sentence starting here should have read as: 'The non‑tumorigenic mouse hepatocyte alpha mouse liver 12 (AML12) cell line was purchased from the Shanghai Cell Bank of Chinese Academy of Sciences (Shanghai, China)' (i.e., the abbreviation AML12 was expanded incorrectly). Secondly, the bottom row of data was accidentally omitted from Table I (pertaining to the Suzuki score for liver...

CONCLUSIONS: It is known that CE can miss clinically relevant and serious lesions. Our results suggest that patients with an initially negative or inconclusive CE frequently have a cause of SB bleeding detected on repeat CE. The DY of repeat CE is highest in those with bleeding on their initial CE (83.3%) and lower in those with initially normal examinations (45.8%) or when an alternative cause, such as angioectasia is seen (14.2%).

Conclusion: Preoperative levels of serum leptin were higher in C-section patients with labor pain than in those without labor pain, and increased serum leptin levels were associated with decreased preoperative pain t hreshold and increased postoperative analgesic consumption in our study population. Postoperative analgesic requirements may vary among patients, and their requirements might be predicted using preoperative indicators. Serum levels of leptin might be one such indicator and this warrants further stud ies with larger sample sizes.

Abstract T1R3 protein, the main subunit of the sweet taste receptor and receptor of amino acid taste, is expressed in the epithelium of the tongue and gastrointestinal tract, in β cells of the pancreas, hypothalamus, and numerous other organs. Recently, convincing evidences on the involvement of T1R3 in the control of carbohydrate and lipid metabolism, and the control of incretin and insulin production were obtained. In the study on Tas1r3-gene knockout mouse strain and parent C57BL/6J strain as a control, the data on the effect of T1R3 on morphological characteristics of Langerhans islets in the pancreas wer...

This study attempts to shed light on the mechanism of income impact on the adult health outcomes of BMI and overweight through five potential channels: nutritional intakes, dietary diversity, dietary knowledge, food preference, and dining out. Using the panel data from the China Health and Nutrition Survey (CHNS), we investigate the causal relationship between income and health by considering the changes in the minimum wage as a valid instrument to address the endogeneity problem of income in health estimation. The results indicate that rising income increases the adults’ BMI and the propensity to be overweight; appr...
