OBJECTIVE: To develop and validate a Seven Emotions Impairment questionnaire (SEIQ), to define an optimum cut-off point for the SEIQ, and to examine whether SEI was predictive of Phlegm and Blood Stasis (BS). METHODS: Two hundred outpatients and 75 college students were asked to complete the SEIQ, the Profile of Mood States (POMS), Phlegm Pattern Questionnaire (PPQ), and BS Questionnaire (BSQ). Twelve clinicians determined whether the outpatients exhibited SEI. SEIQ data were used to examine the internal consistency and determine validity for the outpatients...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether cancer stem cells (CSCs) more efficiently activating platelets and evading immune surveillance than non-CSCs thus promoting metastasis. METHODS: We enriched and identified sphere-forming cells (SFCs) and coincubated washed platelets with several platelet activators including collagen, 4T1 and SFCs. Platelet-coating tumor cells, platelet activation and TGF-β1 release were analyzed. Then natural kell cells (NK) were incubated with supernatants of different activated platelet samples what we called sample release (SR)...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the acute organ toxicity of Strychnos nux-vomica with zebrafish model visually. METHODS: To assess acute toxicity, we initially determined the lethal concentration after Strychnos nux-vomica treatment for 24 h. Zebrafish was treated with five concentrations ≦ LC10 for 24 h, and the effects of Strychnos nux-vomica on morphology, function of heart, central nervous system, liver, kidney and organ-specific cell death were assessed. Next, we assessed the reversibility of toxic effect...

Despite many differences between Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and conventional medicine, the use of TCM in the treatment of human immunodeficiency virus and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) is increasingly recognized and accepted by patients. Recent research findings on the benefits of Chinese herbal medicine on long-term survival in patients with HIV/AIDS are encouraging and hopeful, but inconclusive. More research is needed.
