Cholesterol crystal embolization following plaque rupture: a systemic disease with unusual features
Firas Ghanem,Deepthi Vodnala,Jagadeesh K. Kalavakunta,Sridevi Durga,Noah Thormeier,Prem Subramaniyam,Scott Abela,George S. Abela
Cholesterol crystal embolic (CCE) syndrome is often a clinically challenging condition that has a poor prognostic implication. It is a result of plaque rupture with release of cholesterol crystals into the circulation that embolize into various tissue organs. Plaque rupture seems to be triggered by ...more>>

Shunts, channels and lipoprotein endosomal traffic: a new model of cholesterol homeostasis in the hepatocyte
Robert Scott Kiss,Allan Sniderman
The liver directs cholesterol metabolism in the organism. All the major fluxes of cholesterol within the body involve the liver: dietary cholesterol is directed to the liver; cholesterol from peripheral cells goes to the liver; the liver is a major site of cholesterol synthesis for the organism; cho...more>>

Classification of facial wrinkles among Chinese women
Jiechen Zhang,Wei Hou,Suying Feng,Xiangsheng Chen,Hongwei Wang
It is generally recognized that Caucasians and Asians have different skin aging features. The aim of this study was to develop a facial wrinkle grading scale for Chinese women. Standard photographs were taken of 242 Chinese women. Six sets of 0 to 9 wrinkle scales with reference photographs and desc...more>>

Evaluation of atherosclerotic lesions in cholesterol-fed mice during treatment with paclitaxel in lipid nanoparticles: a magnetic resonance imaging study
Aline D. Lima,Ning Hua,Raul C. Maranh?o,James A. Hamilton
Cholesterol-core nanoparticles (LDE) have been shown to be recognized by low-density lipoprotein receptors (LDLR) after administration; therefore, LDE is an ideal vehicle to deliver drug with targeting property. Paclitaxel, when incorporated into LDE, promotes atherosclerosis regression with reduced...more>>

Comparative effects of plant oils and trans-fat on blood lipid profiles and ischemic stroke in rats
Haiyu Guo,Young-Hwan Ban,Yeseul Cha,Tae-Su Kim,Sung-Pyo Lee,Eun Suk An,Jieun Choi,Da Woom Seo,Jung-Min Yon,Ehn-Kyoung Choi,Yun-Bae Kim
Since plant oils are believed to be better than animal fats for cerebrovascular and cardiovascular diseases, the effects of various plant oils and trans-fat on blood lipid profiles and ischemic stroke were investigated. SpragueDawley rats were fed a diet containing the oils or trans-fat, and then bo...more>>

Effect of exposure to ambient PM2.5 pollution on the risk of respiratory tract diseases: a meta-analysis of cohort studies
Qian Liu,Cheng Xu,Guixiang Ji,Hui Liu,Wentao Shao,Chunlan Zhang,Aihua Gu,Peng Zhao
The International Agency for Research on Cancer and the World Health Organization have designated airborne particulates, including particulates of median aerodynamic diameter ≤ 2.5 μm (PM2.5), as Group 1 carcinogens. It has not been determined, however, whether exposure to ambient PM2.5 is associate...more>>

Antioxidant mediated response of Scoparia dulcis in noise induced redox imbalance and immunohistochemical changes in rat brain
Wankupar Wankhar,Sakthivel Srinivasan,Ravindran Rajan,Rathinasamy Sheeladevi
Noise has been regarded as an environmental/occupational stressor that causes damages to both auditory and nonauditory organs. Prolonged exposure to these mediators of stress has often resulted in detrimental effect, where oxidative/nitrosative stress plays a major role. Hence, it would be appropria...more>>

Effect of zeaxanthin on porcine embryonic development during in vitro maturation
Seo-jin Park,Kyoung-Ha So,Sang-Hwan Hyun
Zeaxanthin is a common carotenoid, which is a powerful antioxidant that protects against damage caused by reactive oxygen species. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of zeaxanthin supplementation on in vitro maturation of porcine embryo development. We investigated nuclear m...more>>

Ultrasonographic evaluation of enthesitis in patients with ankylosing spondylitis
Huayong Zhang,Jun Liang,Junlan Qiu,Fan Wang,Lingyun Sun
The aim of this study was to assess sensitivity and responsiveness of power Doppler ultrasound (PDUS) in detecting enthesitis for ankylosing spondylitis (AS) patients compared to clinical examinations. Twenty AS patients initiating etanerceptunderwent clinical and PDUS examinations of six bilateral ...more>>

CT and multimodal imaging findings of primary orbital Ewing's sarcoma involving the middle cranial fossa: a case report
Xiaoquan Xu,Feiyun Wu,Yunxiang Chen,Hao Hu,Meiling Bao
This report details the CT and MR imaging findings of a primary orbital Ewing's sarcoma case involving the middle cranial fossa in a 13-year old boy. CT showed an ill-circumscribed homogeneous soft-tissue density mass with needle-like bone reaction. On MRI, the mass showed homogeneous iso-intensity ...more>>
