Results MMP-1 mRNA expression of model group rats was significantly lower than that of control group(P<0.01), whereas MMP-1 mRNA expression of treatment group rats was significantly higher than that of model group rats(P<0.01).
Methods 42 patients were divided into two groups at random. 22 cases in the treated group were administered with ceftazidime combined with netilmicin sulfate. The dosage of ceftazidime was 2 g,twice daily intravenously;
What's more, data showed CTGF and TGF-β1 protein and mRNA were significantly lower in PNS treated group, compared with untreated group, indicating that inhibiting CTGF and TGF-β1 expression may be a mechanism of PNS curing pulmonary fibrosis.
Results Compared with the contrast group, the therapy group had lower rate of VAP (0/12, 4/12,P<0.05), shorter duration of total mechanical ventilation [(12.2±6.2)d, (22.4±15.3) d,P<0.05],and fewer days in hospital [(15±7) d, (18±14) d,P<0.05].
Method We choose 50 acute and aggravated inpatients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and the affection of Azithromycin,who were divided into routine therapy group(25 cases) and Azithromycin therapy group(25 cases) randomly.
Methods: Thirty-six BALB/c mice were randomly divided into the control group, the asthmatic group (subdivided into 1, 4, 12 and 24 h timepoints after the last airway challenge of ovalbumin), and the therapeutic group of As_2O_3 (4 mg/kg).
After injection with DC vaccines, IFN-γ production in the treatment group was significantly increased as compared with that in the control group (P>amp;lt;0.01), and IL-4 production was decreased as compared with that in the control group (P>amp;lt;0.05).
The clinical overall response rate was 75% in the treatment group and 56% in control group.
The treatment group had better results than the control group as survival period over six months was 80% and over one year 44%.
In the abnormal HbA1c group, 2HPG after the study was higher in the clozapine treatment group [(9.5 ± 1.8) mmol/L] than in the risperidone treatment group [(7.4 ± 1.7) mmol/L] and the chlorpromazine treatment group [(7.3 ± 1.6) mmol/L].
Male apoE-/- mice were randomized into 4 groups, baseline group (n=10), control group (n=14), treatment group (n=14) and prevention group (n=14).
The hyperlipidemia model was set up by four-week atherogenic diet, followed by a 16-week treatment in the fenofibrate-treated group (fenofibrate 40 mg/kg every day) and without treatment in the hyperlipidemia group, respectively.
In fenofibrate-treated group, the expression of VCAM-1 and leukocyte accumulation on the endothelial surface was decreased, while serum levels of NO were increased as compared with hyperlipidemia group.
There was a decrease in both aspartate transaminase and lactate dehydrogenase activities and in malondialdehyde level in liver of the CoPP-treated group compared with controls (p >amp;lt; 0.05).
Markedly fewer apoptotic liver cells (determined by TUNEL assay) could be detected in CoPP-treated group compared with the control group.
Experimental data on mouse B16 malignant melanoma model indicated that the tumor weight of fusion protein-treated group was statistically significantly smaller than that of interferon γ -treated group.
It was demonstrated that the inflammation process and scar formation in the cell therapy group were progressing at a rate 25-30% faster than in the control group.
In addition, MSC injection caused a neuroprotecting effect; most penumbra neurons retained their structure in cell therapy group, whereas in control group, animal penumbra neurons died or showed signs of serious damage.
Results: Left ventricular mass index (LVMI), transverse diameter of myocardial cell (TDM), calcineurin activity were remarkably decreased after drug intervention and this decrease was most remarkable in the combination drug therapy group.
Sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca2+-ATPase activity was increased after drug intervention, especially in the combined drug therapy group.
Three distinct group therapeutic models are described and discussed in this paper, and an attempt is made to suggest a more inclusive, unitary model of the therapy group.
We found that the mean volume and weight of tumors of early therapeutic group(ETG) were reduced 49.29% and 38.31% of that of control tumors.
Strategies and approaches to create a therapeutic group milieu and structure are outlined to enable "unwanteds" to enter peer groups which support rather than impede the attainment of treatment goals.
It is proposed that two complementary cultures develop within children's groups, one, indigenous peer culture, strictly of the children's making and the other, therapeutic group culture, created by the therapist in collaboration with group members.
Significant variations were noted between three outpatient clinics in the choices among a various psychotropic drugs from a given therapeutic group.
Digoxin was measured in the vitreous humor and choroid-retina of patients who had received in-patient treatment with digoxin prior to death (therapeutic group) and in a single case of suicidal intoxication.
