Peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer thickness in women with iron deficiency anaemia.
To evaluate peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness in adult women with iron deficiency anaemia and healthy control subjects. Women with iron deficiency anaemia and age- and sex-matched healthy control subjects were sequentially recruited and underwent detailed ophthalmic examinatio...
In vitro efficacy of various antibiotic combinations against Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates.
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is one of the leading causes of nosocomial infection. The present study tested the in vitro efficacy of ceftazidime or imipenem combined with amikacin, levofloxacin and colistin in P.aeruginosa isolates. P.aeruginosa strains, isolated from clinical samples, were assessed for a...
Outcome of posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using the single- versus double bundle technique: A meta-analysis.
To test the hypothesis that double bundle posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) reconstruction yields better improvement in stability and functional recovery of the knee than the single bundle technique. PubMed®, Embase®, the Cochrane Library, CNKI, Wanfang and CBM disc databases were searched for compa...
Co-prevalence of carotid stenosis and coronary artery disease in Chinese patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation.
To investigate the co-prevalence of coronary artery disease (CAD) and carotid stenosis and to determine predictors related to CAD in Chinese patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF), presenting without previously diagnosed or excluded CAD. Consecutive patients with PAF were recruited. CAD...

Metabolic syndrome, adiponectin and proinflammatory status in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus.
To assess the prevalence of metabolic syndrome and evaluate proinflammatory status in patients with type 1 diabetes, and to analyse the relationship between inflammation, metabolic control and insulin resistance in these patients. Patients with type 1 diabetes were stratified according to the presen...
Serum concentrations of interleukin-2 and tumour necrosis factor-α under cyclosporine versus acitretin treatment in plaque-type psoriasis.
A prospective, randomized clinical study to compare the short-term effects of cyclosporin and acitretin on psoriasis severity, and serum interleukin (IL)-2 and tumour necrosis factor (TNF)-α concentrations. Patients with moderate-to-severe plaque-type psoriasis were randomly assigned to receive eith...
Ephrin B2 and EphB4 selectively mark arterial and venous vessels in cerebral arteriovenous malformation.
Ephrin type B receptor 4 (EphB4, Eph receptor) selectively binds ephrin B2 (Eph ligand). EphB4/ephrin B2 is involved in embryonic vessel development, vascular remodelling and pathological vessel formation in adults (including tumour angiogenesis). Binding of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)...
RNA granule component TDRD7 gene polymorphisms in a Han Chinese population with age-related cataract.
To examine whether polymorphisms in the RNA granule component tudor domain-containing protein 7 (TDRD7) gene are associated with susceptibility to age-related cataract (ARC) in a Han Chinese population. Patients with ARC, and age-, sex- and ethnically-matched healthy control subjects were enrolled i...
Clinical evaluation of thrombus aspiration combined with tirofiban in patients with acute myocardial infarction with elective percutaneous c...
To compare the efficacy and safety of combined treatment with thrombus aspiration and intracoronary tirofiban in patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI), with elective percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Patients undergoing elective PCI during recovery from acute MI were randomized into...
