Protective Effects of Extracts from Polygonum Hydropiper L on Ethanol-Induced Acute Gastric Mucosal Lesions

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.503
Synopsis: 
This study was to investigate the protective effect of extracts from Polygonum hydropiper on experimentally-induced AGML in mice. The findings showed that the extract could distinctly reduce the acute gastric mucosal damage, and these are closely associated with antioxidant effect. The extracts enhanced the activities of antioxidative enzymes SOD and GSH-Px and decreased the level of MDA in the serum and gastric tissues. In addition, the extracts increased the production of PGE2 and decreased the NO level in gastric tissues.

Urine IL-8 is the Predictive Biomarker of Steroid Sensitivity in Patients with Idiopathic Nephrotic Syndrome

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.363
Synopsis: 
We conducted a prospective study on idiopathic nephrotic syndrome (INS) to explore the changes in the urine IL levels of the patients to discover the noninvasive indicators for predicting and dynamically monitoring steroid efficacy in the steroid therapy of INS patients.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The study aimed to explore the correlation between urine interleukin (IL)-8, 6, 10, 17 levels and the efficacy of steroid in patients with idiopathic nephrotic syndrome (INS).

Effects of General-epidural Anaesthesia on the Haemodynamics in Patients with Myasthenia Gravis

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.054
Pages: 
99–103
Synopsis: 
General-epidural anaesthesia can stabilize perioperative haemodynamics, reduce the consumption of general anaesthesia and simultaneously shorten extubation time, indicating that it is a feasible and ideal anaesthetic method at present.

 ABSTRACT

Objective: The current study aims to explore the effects of general-epidural anaesthesia (GEA) on the perioperative haemodynamics in patients with myasthenia gravis (MG), as well as their extubation time.
