Here we present a software system, named human body model (HBM), to compute joint kinematics and kinetics for a full body model with 44 degrees of freedom, in real-time, and to estimate length changes and forces in 300 muscle elements.

This research was to investigate the correlation between proto-oncogene POK erythroid myeloid ontogenic factor (Pokemon) and oncogene mouse double minute 2 homolong (MDM2). We found that Pokemon and MDM2 were highly expressed in rat lungs following carcinogenesis of lung squamous cell carcinoma.

This research aimed at evaluating the effect of proteasome inhibitor MG-132 in mice with inflammatory acute viral myocarditis and found that MG-132 protects mice from coxsackie virus B3 virus-induced acute viral myocarditis through suppressing the expression of inflammatory factors.
This study investigated a painless and effective form of anaesthesia for ovarian cystectomy and found that the application of lidocaine-prilocaine cream combined with rapid induced anaesthesia can effectively reduce pain, relieve the heamodynamic fluctuations caused by extubation stress reaction during ovarian cystectomy.

This study researched rhubarb extract's inhibiting-effect on α-glucosidase's activity in small intestine of rats with Type 1 diabetes. The result showed that Rhubarb can inhibit α-glucosidase's activity in the small intestine of Type 1 diabetic rats.
There is the risk of breach of confidentiality as far as medical data is concerned. A robust watermarking technique is proposed as suitable for medical volume data concerned with privacy protection, safety and management.
The study aimed to get more knowledge about the relationship between age, dietary habit, behavioural habit, living habit and hepatocellular carcinoma (HHC) and clarify the risk of causing HHC by alcohol consumption.
Analogous adult stem cells may be a protocol of treatment for traumatic brain injury (TBI). This study found that intranasal delivery of Granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor provides a potential protective effects in traumatic brain injury.
This research is to develop an osteopontin (OPN) specific siRNA expression vector and transfect it into cervical cancer Hela cells, in order to obtain OPN stable transfection cell lines, thus providing support for further study on the mechanism of OPN in cervical cancer Hela cells.
This study discussed the expression of IL-7R genes of patients with osteoarthrosis and the value of its clinical significance. It found that IL-7R expression existed both in the normal synovial tissues in the knees and synovial tissues in patients with osteoarthrosis but the latter was lower.
This study showed that compared with conventional fractionation radiotherapy in non-small cell lung carcinoma, accelerated hyperfractionation radiotherapy showed better short-term decentralized control effect.
This research is aimed to explore the effects of low-dose bisoprolol on the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) and ventricular remodelling and found that Bisoprolol can inhibit the RAAS and reverse ventricular remodelling.
This study found that high cholesterol and high blood pressure of long standing caused blood lipid metabolic disorders, may lead to blood flow dynamics affected by different degree, and make the degree of myocardial cells after very uneven.
