    To determine the effect of thymosin α1 (Tα1) on the phenotypic and functional maturation of HL‑60 cells, freeze‑thaw antigen‑loaded dendritic cells (DCs) were derived from peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) of children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). The DCs were generated from ...

  5. Trends in disability in activities of daily living among Chinese older adults, 1997-2006: the China Health and Nutrition Survey.

    Journals of Gerontology Series A: Biological Sc... 70(6):739 (2015) PMID 25414515 PMCID PMC4506321

    A decline in prevalence of late-life disability in activities of daily living (ADLs) has been reported in Western countries. We investigate the time trend of disability in basic ADLs among Chinese older people in 1997-2006, and explore the potential contribution of cardiometabolic diseases to th...
  6. Aberrant expression of the CHFR prophase checkpoint gene in human B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

    Leukemia Research 39(5):536 (2015) PMID 25798877

    Checkpoint with FHA and Ring Finger (CHFR) is a checkpoint protein that reportedly initiates a cell cycle delay in response to microtubule stress during prophase in mitosis, which has become an interesting target for understanding cancer pathogenesis. Recently, aberrant methylation of the CHFR g...
  7. Prevalence and Patterns of Chronic Disease Pairs and Multimorbidity among Older Chinese Adults Living in a Rural Area.

    PLoS ONE 10(9):e0138521 (2015) PMID 26394368 PMCID PMC4578976

    The burden of chronic diseases in China is substantial now. Data on patterns of chronic diseases and multimorbidity among older adults, especially among those living in rural areas, are sparse. We aim to investigate the prevalence and patterns of chronic disease pairs and multimorbidity in elder...
  8. Highly prevalent and poorly controlled cardiovascular risk factors among Chinese elderly people living in the rural community.

    European Journal of Preventive Cardiology 21(10):1267 (2014) PMID 23598595

    The epidemiological scenario of cardiovascular risk factors (CRFs) among elderly people in rural China is unclear. We seek to describe the distribution, burden and management of major CRFs among older Chinese people living in the rural community. This cross-sectional study included 1538 particip...
  9. Association between lipid profile and depressive symptoms among Chinese older people: mediation by cardiovascular diseases?

    International Journal of Behavioral Medicine 21(4):590 (2014) PMID 24136399

    The potential mediating effect of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) (e.g., ischemic heart disease and stroke) on the association between abnormal serum lipids and late-life depressive symptoms has not been investigated. We aimed to examine the associations between serum lipids and elevated depressi...
  10. Grandinin down-regulates phosphorylation of epidermal growth factor receptor.

    International journal of clinical and experimen... 7(9):5888 (2014) PMID 25337231 PMCID PMC4203202

    Grandinin (C(46)H(34)O(30)) is a compound found in Melaleuca quinquenervia leaves and in oaks. This study is to determine effects of grandinin on malignant lung cells and the related molecular mechanisms. Malignant cells were treated with grandinin with various concentrations. The 3-(4,5-dimethy...
  11. Cardiovascular risk factor profiles for peripheral artery disease and carotid atherosclerosis among Chinese older people: a population-based study.
