Khotanese remaining prescription P. 2889v was written in Khotanese.Because of the affinity between Khotan and Dunhuang, thus it appeared in the Dunhuang Library Grottoes.Traditional Indian medical work Siddhasāra copied around 982 and composed in Khotanese also unearthed in Dunhuang.It is speculated that the copy time of P. 2889v is slightly earlier than 982. The third formula prescription in P. 2889v is similar to the Kalyānaka found in the Siddhasāra and Daji Medicinal Oil Pill recorded in the Volume of Tibetan Medicine of the Chinese Medical Encyclopedia, demonstrating that this prescription had been circulating in the western region and Tibet, which indicates the spread of the Indian Ayurveda medicine in western China with profound influences...

For decades in China, the Yin-Huang-Qing-Fei capsule (YHQFC) has been widely used in the treatment of chronic bronchitis, with good curative effects. Owing to the complexity of traditional Chinese herbal formulas, the pharmacological mechanism of YHQFC remains unclear. To address this problem, a network pharmacology-based strategy was proposed in this study. At first, the putative target profile of YHQFC was predicted using MedChem Studio, based on structural and functional similarities of all available YHQFC components to the known drugs obtained from the DrugBank database...

PURPOSE: In intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), the tumor target volume is given a uniform dose prescription, which does not consider the heterogeneous characteristics of tumor such as hypoxia, clonogen density, radiosensitivity, tumor proliferation rate and so on. Our goal is to develop a nonuniform target dose prescription method which can spare organs at risk (OARs) better and does not decrease the tumor control probability (TCP). METHODS: We propose a piecewise uniform dose prescription (PUDP) based on PET/CT images of tumor...

Epidemics of dengue fever in China were reported before 1940 and the outbreak of dengue fever in Guangdong province in 2014 is the most serious so far. The important question is what factors account for this serious outbreak, and how to evaluate the sensitivity of the multiple factors including weather variables and human actions on the dengue disease. Therefore, according to the relations among the temperature (daily mean temperature (DMT) and diurnal temperature range (DTR)), vector parameters and reproduction number we have proposed the analytical formula for the relative vector's capacity and effective reproduction number, and then we have the formula for the likelihood function by employing the generation interval-informed method...
