1. Association of Polymorphisms of TNF-α and VDR Genes and HBV Genotype with Outcomes of Hepatitis B Virus Infection in Han Population of North China 2. Genetic Polymorphisms of TNF-α, VDR and elf-2α Genes and Response to Interferon Therapy in Patients with Chronic Hepatitis B: A Pilot Sduty
No infants were infected chronically by HBV in group A. 7 infants who were infected chronically with HBV were all in group B.The chronical infection rate of HBV of infants in group B was significantly higher than that in group A(χ2=4.41,P < 0.05).
The results showed that the positive rates of antiHBs-Ab_2-IC in the pa-tients with acute hepatitis B, chronically active hepatitis B and chronically procrastinated hepatitis B were 14.5%(9 / 62),21.9%(28/128)and 12.5%(2 / 16) respectivcly.
Methods Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) from chronically HBV-infected individuals were isolated routinely, stimulated by PMA, ionomycin and monensin, and the production of IL-4/IFN-γby CD4~+ T cells in PBMC was determined by FACS analysis.
To investigate the expression of JWA after hemin and (or) thermal stress exposure, we treated K562 (chronic myelogenous leukemia cells) cells with different doses of hemin and thermal stress using different exposure times.
Clinically, 36.9% (15/41) were categorized as first onset type, 36.9% (15/41) were chronic persistent and 26.8% (11/41) were chronic recurrent.
Effect of renal function and hemodialysis on the serum tumor markers in patients with chronic kidney disease
It has been recently shown that some tumor markers are higher in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) than in the normal population.
The 232 non-dialysis patients with CKD and 37 chronic uremic patients treated with maintenance hemodialysis were enrolled in this study.
Acute and chronic exposures to ethanol are accompanied by changes in structure and function of GABAA receptors.
In addition to having a key role in thrombogenesis, platelets are actively involved in acute and chronic inflammation: they induce the release of proinflammatory mediators, expose adhesion molecules, and recruit leukocytes.
Dynamics of Certain Parameters of Immunograms in Acute and Chronic Inflammatory Diseases with Regard to the Features of the Clin
Certain regularities in changes in immunograms in acute and chronic inflammatory diseases were analyzed.
Promoter polymorphism G-1607GG in the interstitial collagenase gene (MMP1) was studied in patients with COPD, bronchiectasis, and chronic nonobstructive bronchitis.
Thus, data obtained clearly indicate that the hypertrophied myocardium of SHRSP was less tolerant to ischemia/reperfusion than that of Wistar rats due to chronically increased OH· production and enhanced total OH· output during reperfusion.
EEG and clinical psychophysiological study of functional changes in the chronically ischemic brain upon an increase in cholinerg
Chronically high contents of heavy metals (Fe, Cu, Zn, and Cd) were found in the bottom sediments and in the infauna.
The taxonomic composition, concentration, and distribution of meroplankton have been studied in Gaidamak Bight, Peter the Great Bay, chronically exposed to anthropogenic impact.
Cenopopulations chronically exposed to radiation are characterized by a higher mutation rate in the progeny and an unstable response to additional acute irradiation in most characters studied.
