1. Advanced fibrosis associates with atherosclerosis in subjects with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.

    Atherosclerosis 241(1):145 (2015) PMID 25988358

    Nonalcoholic fatty liver (NAFLD) with advanced fibrosis usually has a deteriorated prognosis, which was mainly attributed to cardiovascular cause. We investigated whether advanced fibrosis assessed by noninvasive fibrosis markers was associated with subclinical atherosclerosis in NAFLD patients....
  2. The resurrection genome of Boea hygrometrica: A blueprint for survival of dehydration.

    PNAS 112(18):5833 (2015) PMID 25902549 PMCID PMC4426394

    "Drying without dying" is an essential trait in land plant evolution. Unraveling how a unique group of angiosperms, the Resurrection Plants, survive desiccation of their leaves and roots has been hampered by the lack of a foundational genome perspective. Here we report the ∼1,691-Mb sequenced ge...

  5. Serum lipoprotein (a) concentrations are inversely associated with T2D, prediabetes, and insulin resistance in a middle-aged and elderly Chinese population.

    Journal of Lipid Research 56(4):920 (2015) PMID 25649924 PMCID PMC4373748

    Lipoprotein (a) [Lp(a)], an LDL-like particle, has been proposed as a causal risk factor for CVD among general populations. Meanwhile, both serum Lp(a) and diabetes increase the risk of CVD. However, the relationship between serum Lp(a) and T2D is poorly characterized, especially in the Asian po...
  6. Arterial remodeling of basilar atherosclerosis in isolated pontine infarction.

    Neurological Sciences 36(4):547 (2015) PMID 25367406

    Isolated pontine infarctions are usually classified as paramedian pontine infarction (PPI) and lacunar pontine infarction (LPI). Although they have different shapes and locations, some recent studies proved that they might both be associated with basilar artery atherosclerosis in pathogenesis. T...
  7. The risk of hepatitis B virus reactivation and the role of antiviral prophylaxis in hepatitis B surface antigen negative/hepatitis B core antibody positive patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma receiving rituximab-based chemotherapy.

    Leukemia & Lymphoma 56(4):1027 (2015) PMID 25065698

    The risk factors and the role of prophylactic antiviral therapy of hepatitis B virus (HBV) reactivation in patients with hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) negative/hepatitis B core antibody (HBcAb) positive disease remain controversial. We reviewed 629 patients with diffuse large B-cell lympho...
  8. Application of mixed cloud point extraction for the analysis of six flavonoids in Apocynum venetum leaf samples by high performance liquid chromatography.

    Journal of Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Analysis 107:273 (2015) PMID 25625477

    A simple, inexpensive and efficient method based on the mixed cloud point extraction (MCPE) combined with high performance liquid chromatography was developed for the simultaneous separation and determination of six flavonoids (rutin, hyperoside, quercetin-3-O-sophoroside, isoquercitrin, astraga...
  9. Status of cardiovascular health in chinese adults.

    Journal of the American College of Cardiology 65(10):1013 (2015) PMID 25766949

    Cardiovascular disease has become the leading cause of death in China. The goal of this study was to evaluate the current status of cardiovascular health in Chinese adults. Cardiovascular health data were collected from a nationally representative sample of 96,121 Chinese adults age ≥20 years in...
