Application and prospects of butylphthalide for the treatment of neurologic diseases.
CONCLUSIONS: The varied pharmacologic mechanisms of NBP involve many complex molecular mechanisms; however, there many unknown pharmacologic effects await further study. PMID: 31205106 [PubMed - in process]

In this work, we aimed to investigate whether natural compounds from a Traditional Chinese Medicine prescription called San-Huang-Xie-Xin-Tang exert its clinical efficacy by inhibiting inflammasome activation and the underlying mechanism. The inhibitory effects of compounds on...
ConclusionThese results clearly demonstrated the lignans from Schisandra sphenanthera exert hepatoprotective effects against LCA-induced cholestasis by activation of PXR. These lignans may provide an effective approach for the prevention and treatment of cholestatic liver injury.Graphical abstract
DiscussionWe estimated higher risks of ALL in the offspring of women with pregestational diabetes. These results are consistent with previous findings and compatible with a role of prenatal glycaemic environment in childhood cancer aetiology.
Conclusions and implicationsThe predictive patterns of phonological awareness on reading fluency are complex and depend on many factors, while vocabulary knowledge is an important and consistent predictor for both deaf and hearing children.
Publication date: Available online 20 July 2019Source: Journal of Clinical NeuroscienceAuthor(s): Pornpatr A. Dharmasaroja, Nattaphol Uransilp, Pritsana PiyabhanAbstractThe anatomic variation of Circle of Willis (CW) has been shown to have a great impact on its compensatory capacity during acute ischemic stroke. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the effect of variations in CW on collateral circulation in patients with acute ischemic stroke who had major artery occlusion. Patients with acute ischemic stroke within 4.5 h of stroke onset who had at least moderate severity of stroke (NIHSS ≥ 6), caused by major...
ConclusionsA bleeding revision is associated with significantly reduced survival and substantially increased morbidity during LVAD support. Preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative prophylactic strategies may help to prevent this life-threatening complication.
ConclusionsThe use of physician-modified thoracic stent grafts for the treatment of dissecting aortic arch aneurysm after surgical treatment of acute type A dissection is feasible and effective. Durability concerns will need to be assessed in future studies.Visual Abstract
ConclusionsIn our experience, this approach is a reliable platform for a variety of MICS procedures and has resulted in low complication rates. The technique can be applied safely to both paediatric and adult population. Also, it is very cost effective as regular instruments and cannulas are used.
This study aimed to investigate the effects of plasma-activated lactic acid (PALA) on Salmonella Enteritidis and beef quality. To improve the antibacterial efficiency of plasma-activated water (PAW), plasma-activated lactic acid (PALA) was prepared by treating lactic acid (0.05–0.20%) with a plasma jet for 40 to 100 s with subsequent application to the surfaces of beef slices (50 × 50 mm, approximately 10 g). Slices were analyzed for changes in surface color, pH, lipid oxidation and odor. In addition, secondary structure (β-sheet and random coil) of the beef protein was determined using Fourier t...
CONCLUSIONS Our results confirm that OMT alleviates transdifferentiation of cardiac fibroblasts to myofibroblasts induced by aldosterone via activating the Nrf2/Keap1 pathway in vitro. PMID: 31325292 [PubMed - in process]
