  1. Plant-Derived Antimicrobials Reduce E. coli O157:H7 Virulence Factors Critical for Colonization in Cattle Gastrointestinal Tract In Vitro.

    BioMed research international 2014:212395 (2014) PMID 25050328

    This study investigated the effect of subinhibitory concentrations (SIC) of five plant-derived antimicrobials (PDAs), namely, trans cinnamaldehyde, eugenol, carvacrol, thymol, and β-resorcylic acid, on E. coli O157:H7 (EHEC) attachment and invasion of cultured bovine colonic (CO) and rectoanal junct...
  2. Animal arterivirus infections.

    BioMed research international 2014:303841 (2014) PMID 25050338

  3. The effects of intravenous fosaprepitant and ondansetron for the prevention of postoperative nausea and vomiting in neurosurgery patients: a...

    BioMed research international 2014:307025 (2014) PMID 25050340

    We investigated the preventive effects on PONV in a randomized study by comparing patients who had been administered fosaprepitant, a neurokinin-1 (NK1) receptor antagonist, or ondansetron intravenously. Sixty-four patients undergoing craniotomy were randomly allocated to receive fosaprepitant 150 m...
  4. Incidence of otolaryngological symptoms in patients with temporomandibular joint dysfunctions.

    BioMed research international 2014:824684 (2014) PMID 25050373

    The functional disorders of the masticatory organ are the third stomatological disease to be considered a populational disease due to its chronicity and widespread prevalence. Otolaryngological symptoms are a less common group of dysfunction symptoms, including sudden hearing impairment or loss, ear...
  5. Treatment of Cardiovascular Disease by Traditional Chinese Medicine against Pregnane X Receptor.

    BioMed research international 2014:950191 (2014) PMID 25050380

    We aim to investigate the potent lead compounds as PXR receptor agonist against cardiovascular disease. To improve drug development of TCM compounds, we aim to investigate the potent lead compounds as PXR agonists from the TCM compounds in TCM Database@Taiwan. The top three TCM compounds, bis(4-hydr...
  6. Helicobacter pylori Is Not Eradicated after Triple Therapy: A Nested PCR Based Study.

    BioMed research international 2014:483136 (2014) PMID 25054141

    Detection of Helicobacter pylori after triple therapy is usually carried out by either rapid urease test (RUT), urea breath test (UBT), histology, bacterial isolation, and single round PCR or serological tests. In this study, antral biopsy specimens from 25 patients were tested for H. pylori by RUT,...
  7. Defining Loci in restriction-based reduced representation genomic data from nonmodel species: sources of bias and diagnostics for optimal cl...

    BioMed research international 2014:675158 (2014) PMID 25057498

    We use published genomes from a tunicate, stickleback, and soybean to illustrate the potential for bioinformatic artifacts and introduce a protocol to minimize two sources of error expected from similarity-based de-novo clustering of stacked reads: the splitting of alleles into different clusters, w...
  8. Genetics of Alzheimer's disease.

    BioMed research international 2013:254954 (2013) PMID 23984328 PMCID PMC3741956

    We review the known genetics of early- and late-onset Alzheimer's disease....
  9. Aorta structural alterations in term neonates: the role of birth and maternal characteristics.

    BioMed research international 2013:459168 (2013) PMID 23984364 PMCID PMC3741912

    To evaluate the influence of selected maternal and neonatal characteristics on aorta walls in term, appropriately grown-for-gestational age newborns. Age, parity, previous abortions, weight, height, body mass index before and after delivery, smoking, and history of hypertension, of diabetes, of card...
  10. Development of bioadhesive chitosan superporous hydrogel composite particles based intestinal drug delivery system.

    BioMed research international 2013:563651 (2013) PMID 23984380 PMCID PMC3747347

    Bioadhesive superporous hydrogel composite (SPHC) particles were developed for an intestinal delivery of metoprolol succinate and characterized for density, porosity, swelling, morphology, and bioadhesion studies. Chitosan and HPMC were used as bioadhesive and release retardant polymers, respectivel...
