In this study, the components of FP were profiled and characterized using HPLC-ESI-MS2. A total of 58 compounds were identified according to their fragmentation features in IT-TOF-MS and IT-MS2, including 13 phenolic acids, 17 flavonoids, 21 lignans, 2 alkaloids, and 5 other compounds. Among them, the identities of 8 compounds were explicitly confirmed by comparing them with standard compounds, and their contents were determined. Our study provided a comprehensive understanding of the diverse chemical profile in FP, and the approach we developed is useful for the analysis of other TCM formulas.

ConclusionsNusinersen demonstrated a favorable safety profile in children with symptomatic infantile- and later-onset SMA. Most reported AEs and serious AEs were consistent with the nature and frequency of events typically seen with SMA or in the context of lumbar puncture procedures.RegistrationNCT01494701, NCT01703988, NCT01839656, NCT02193074, NCT02292537, NCT01780246, NCT02052791.

AbstractIn this paper, I analyze whether premium refunds can reduce ex-post moral hazard behavior in the health insurance market. I do so by estimating the effect of these refunds on different measures of medical demand. I use panel data from German sickness funds that cover the years 2006 –2010 and I estimate effects for the year 2010. Applying regression adjusted matching, I find that choosing a tariff that contains a premium refund is associated with a significant reduction in the probability of visiting a general practitioner. Furthermore, the probability of visiting a doctor du e to a trivial ailment such as a c...

CONCLUSIONS: Moderate certainty evidence suggests that AZA and 6-MP may be superior to placebo for maintenance of surgically-induced remission in participants with CD. There was no clear difference in the number of clinical relapses when purine analogues were compared with 5-ASA agents, however this is based on low certainty evidence. There was very low certainty evidence that AZA and 6-MP are more likely to result in more serious adverse events (SAEs) and withdrawals due to an AE (low certainty) when compared to 5-ASA agents. Very low certainty evidence suggests that purine analogues may be inferior to anti-TNF-α ag...

Abstract Cardiac tumors are a rarity. Most diagnosed primary tumors of the heart are benign, with an incidence ranging between 0.001% and 0.03%. Cardiac myxoma is one of these benign entities. A 44-year-old Caucasian woman who presented with symptoms of a common cold was diagnosed with a massive obstructing myxoma of the left atrium. Despite its large size, the tumor was completely removed using minimally invasive access through right anterior thoracotomy. However, the myxoma was adherent to the left atrial septum and was excised in toto. Pathological examinations confirmed the diagnosis of a primary cardiac myxom...

AbstractRhinovirus is a common picornavirus with over 150 serotypes and three species, which is responsible for half of the human common cold cases. In people with chronic respiratory conditions and elders, it may also cause life-threatening diseases. Transmission routes are not definitively established but may involve direct human-to-human and indirect transmission (surfaces and aerosols based). In the present study, year-long presence of virus was tested by qPCR in the nostrils of young healthy volunteers and indoor and outdoor air samples. Results were correlated to atmospheric conditions (meteorological and air quality...
