While the use of vinegar to fi ght against infections and other crucial conditions dates back to Hippocrates, recent research has found that vinegar consumption has a positive effect on biomarkers for diabetes, cancer, and heart diseases. Different types of vinegar have been used in the world during different time periods. Vinegar is produced by a fermentation process. Foods with a high content of carbohydrates are a good source of vinegar. Review of the results of different studies performed on vinegar components reveals that the daily use of these components has a healthy impact on the physiological and chemical structure of the human body...

Submerged vegetation biomass fluctuation usually occurs during the preliminary stage of vegetation restoration in shallow lakes, which impacts the final status and duration for achieving a macrophyte-dominant state. This study uncovered the sediment N characteristics and the sediment bacterial community and their predicted functions during the preliminary stage of vegetation recovery in the West Lake, a typical subtropical degenerated shallow lake in China. Results showed increased amounts of sediment TN and NH4 -N, reaching 3425...

Improving adaptation of staple crops in developing countries is important to ensure food security. In the West African country of Niger, the staple crop sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) is cultivated across diverse agroclimatic zones, but the genetic basis of local adaptation has not been described. The objectives of this study were to characterize the genomic diversity of sorghum from Niger and to identify genomic regions conferring local adaptation to agroclimatic zones and farmer preferences. We analyzed 516 Nigerien accessions for which local variety name, botanical race, and geographic origin were known...

The objective of this study is to evaluate the remission rate and describe the current use of medication in a large cohort of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients under routine clinical care in China. RA patients were recruited from 40 large teaching hospitals nationwide in China. Data regarding RA disease activity, medication treatment, and adverse events were recorded using a standardized clinical data questionnaire. RA remission was evaluated by the 28 Joint Disease Activity Score DAS28-ESR Clinical Disease Activity Index (CDAI), Simplified Disease Activity Index (SDAI), and American College of Rheumatology/European League Against Rheumatism (ACR/EULAR) remission criteria...

Constructed wetland is an efficient way to lower N load from wastewater treatment plants. Here, the nitrogen removal rate and nitrogen balance, as well as the microbial community structure in IVCWs planted with different vegetation for treating reclaimed water were investigated. The results showed that IVCWs planted with vegetation generally achieved a higher TN removal rate than unplanted treatment, especially for Canna indica L. with 10.35% enhancement. Moreover, the microbial process proportion (83.87-87...

Grass carp can weaken the growth and reproductive capacity of submerged macrophytes by consuming valuable tissues, but factors affecting palatability of submerged macrophytes for grass carp rarely are considered. In this study, relative consumption rate of grass carp with regard to submerged macrophytes was in the following order: Hydrilla verticillata > Vallisneria natans > Ceratophyllum demersum > Myriophyllum spicatum. Firmness of macrophytes was in the following order: M. spicatum > C. demersum > H...

High-quality vinegars are traditionally produced by aging them in barrels or bottles. However, these processes are very time-consuming. To accelerate of Zhenjiang vinegar maturation, the ultrasound was used to treat the steeped vinegar. Results showed that, the optimum ultrasonic power, time and ethanol addition for aging vinegar were determined to be 50W/100mL, 75min and 0.75% (V/V), respectively. Under the optimum experimental conditions, the total amino acid of fresh vinegar decreased from 1082.259mg/100mL to 871...

Phosphorous removal in adsorption had been extensively researched; however, the biological dephosphorization process and optimum operating parameters have not been discussed or quantified in Integrated Vertical-flow Constructed Wetlands (IVCWs). In this study, IVCWs planted with different plants were employed to evaluate total phosphorus (TP) treatment performance under different hydraulic retention times (HRTs), in summer and autumn. The results showed that the systems planted with Canna generalis showed the highest TP removal efficiency (77%) under a three-day HRT in autumn...

BACKGROUND: Growth of nerve fibers has been shown to occur in a rabbit model of intravertebral disc degeneration (IVD) induced by needle puncture. As nerve growth may underlie the process of chronic pain in humans affected by disc degeneration, we sought to investigate the factors underlying nerve ingrowth in a minimally invasive annulotomy rabbit model of IVD by comparing the effects of empty disc defects with those of defects filled with poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid)/fibrin gel (PLGA) plugs...

BACKGROUND: A new staging system recently proposed by the IGCA has demonstrated a better capacity of stratifying different prognoses for gastric cancer than the 7th edition AJCC staging system (AJCC7). The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of the IGCA system in Chinese patients. METHODS: Medical records of patients with gastric cancer who received curative surgery in our center from January 2003 to December 2011 were reviewed retrospectively. All the lesions were staged according to both AJCC7 and IGCA staging systems...

Submerged macrophytes play an important role in aquatic ecosystems, which has led to an increase in studies on vegetation recovery in polluted lakes from which submerged macrophytes have disappeared. The comparison of microbial communities in sediment cloned with planted and naturally growing submerged macrophytes is an interesting but rarely studied topic. In this investigation, Maojiabu and Xilihu, two adjacent sublakes of West Lake (Hangzhou, China), were selected as aquatic areas with planted and naturally growing macrophytes, respectively...

Homeobox A11 (HOXA11) is one of the hypermethylated genes in breast cancer and its function in breast tumorigenesis remains elusive. In this study, we analyzed the methylation status of HOXA11 in 264 paired breast cancer and normal tissue as well as in matched serum samples by MethyLight assay. Further, the function of HOXA11 in breast tumorigenesis was analyzed by cell proliferation and migration assays. We found that HOXA11 was hypermethylated in cancer tissues (45.08%), especially in invasive ductal carcinomas (P<0...

An excellent persistent luminescence (PersL) phosphor NaCa2 GeO4 F:Mn2+ ,Yb3+ has been synthesized by traditional solid-state reaction. By controlling the occupation sites of Mn2+ emitters, the PersL color of this phosphor can be optionally tuned in the red to green-yellow region, and the maximum spectral shift is more than 50 nm. Significantly, the red PersL can be measured for approximately 13 and 3 h (0.32 mcd/m2 ) and can be observed for more than 20 and 5 h with dark-adapted vision after exposure to ultraviolet irradiation and artificial sunlight, respectively...

BACKGROUND: Collagen hydrolysates (CHs) have been demonstrated to have positive effects on skin photoaging by topical application or oral ingestion. However, there has been little research on their influence on skin chronological aging. In this study, 9-month-old female ICR mice were given normal AIN-93M diets containing CHs (2.5, 5 and 10% w/w) from Nile tilapia scale. RESULTS: After 6 months, the collagen content and antioxidant enzyme (superoxide dismutase and glutathione peroxidase) activities increased significantly (P < 0...
