Companion animals including dogs are one of the important components in One Health. Parasites may cause not only diseases in pet animals but also many zoonotic diseases infecting humans. In this study, we performed a survey of intestinal parasites in fecal specimens (n = 485) collected from outpatient pet dogs with diarrhea in Beijing, China, for the entire year of 2015 by microscopic examination (all parasites) and SSU rRNA-based nested PCR detection (Giardia and Cryptosporidium). We observed a total of 124 (25...

In recent years, severe haze events often occurred in China, causing serious environmental problems. The mechanisms responsible for the haze formation, however, are still not well understood, hindering the forecast and mitigation of haze pollution. Our study of the 2012-13 winter haze events in Beijing shows that atmospheric water vapour plays a critical role in enhancing the heavy haze events. Under weak solar radiation and stagnant moist meteorological conditions in winter, air pollutants and water vapour accumulate in a shallow planetary boundary layer (PBL)...

Black carbon (BC) in PM2.5 was measured at an urban site in Beijing during winter 2015 using an aethalometer. The characteristics and sources of BC during pollution episodes and clean days were analyzed. The average hourly mass concentration of BC during the study period was 5.31±6.27μg/m(3). BC was highly correlated with PM2.5 (R(2)=0.80), with its concentration ranging from 0.17μg/m(3) in clean days to 35.33μg/m(3) in haze days. Source apportionment results showed that the average contribution of liquid fuel source (e...

This study set out to investigate the clinical diagnosis and treatment strategies for malignant breast adenomyoepithelioma (AME), thus increasing the clinical knowledge on such disease. Two patients with malignant breast AME in Beijing Friendship Hospital were selected for study. Here we report the diagnosis and treatment processes in terms of the failure experience and lessons and relate our findings to those in the literature. Malignant breast AME is inclined to affect the areola area. It is recommended to conduct simple mastectomy combined with sentinel lymph node dissection due to the low sensitivity of the preoperative imaging diagnosis and difficulty in the pathological diagnosis...

Secretory meningioma (SM) is a rare histological subtype of the meningioma family. Few reports investigating SM have been published due to its extremely low incidence; thus, the current understanding of this disease is poor. We analyzed the incidence and clinical, radiological, pathological, and prognostic features of SM. Approximately 12,380 intracranial meningiomas were surgically resected at Beijing Tiantan Hospital between April 2008 and January 2017. All pathologically confirmed SM cases were identified...

Objective: To examine the features and values of ultrasonic diagnosis for retinal detachment in eyes with silicone oil tamponade (SOT). Methods: A prospective study. A total of 257 eyes (257 patients) were filled with silicone oil between December 1, 2015 and August 1, 2016 in the Department of Ophthalmology at a hospital in Beijing. All of the patients underwent a color Doppler ultrasound examination in the supine and sitting positions a week prior to surgery. The pre-surgery conditions were compared with the subsequent observations during the surgery to analyze the features and values of ultrasonic diagnosis for retinal detachment in eyes with SOT...

Improving the quality of primary care may reduce avoidable hospital admissions. Avoidable admissions for conditions such as diabetes are used as a quality metric in the Health Care Quality Indicators of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). Using the OECD indicators, we compared avoidable admission rates and spending for diabetes-related complications in Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, and rural and peri-urban Beijing, China, in the period 2008-14. We found that spending on diabetes-related avoidable hospital admissions was substantial and increased from 2006 to 2014...

Municipal wastewater treatment plants (MWTPs) are regarded as sources of airborne microorganisms. Sludge dewatering house (SDH) is one of the most serious indoor bioaerosol pollution treatment sectors in MWTPs. In this study, properties of bioaerosols from SDHs of nine MWTPs were investigated in China. Results suggested that bioaerosols were generated mainly from the mixed liquor and will be promoted by the mechanical motion of belts of dewatering devices. They will accumulate in the SDHs due to the treatment devices placed inside...

PURPOSE: The minichromosomal maintenance (MCM) proteins are involved in the initiation and DNA replication. The role of MCM4 remains to be elucidated. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of MCM4 in laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC) cell growth and apoptosis. METHODS: LSCC cell line UMSCC 5 was used in this study. The small interfering RNA (siRNA) of MCM 4 gene was used to identify the effects of MCM4 on the proliferation and apoptosis using methylimidazole tetrazolium (MTT) assay and flow-cytometry, respectively...

Determining the 'dynamic biogeography' of range collapse in threatened species is essential for effective conservation, but reconstruction of spatio-temporal patterns of population vulnerability and resilience can require use of non-standard ecological data such as historical archives. Père David's deer or milu, one of the few living mammal species that has become extinct in the wild, is historically known only from a small captive herd of unknown provenance that survived until 1900 in the Imperial Hunting Park near Beijing, from which all living individuals are descended...

Human mastadenovirus species C (HAdV-C) are the most common etiologic agents of respiratory disease in young children and are frequently detected worldwide including China. Two recombinant HAdV-C strains (BJ04 and BJ09) were isolated from infants with acute respiratory infection (ARI) in Beijing in 2012-2013. The whole genome sequences (WGS) of BJ04 and BJ09 were generated and compared to other 35 HAdV-C WGSs publicly available. Phylogenetic analyses showed that the BJ04 strain might be the result of three homologous recombination events involving the parental strains JX173086 (HAdV-1), NC_001405 (HAdV-2) and LC068718 (HAdV-6), whereas BJ09 viral genome might be made of genetic elements from JX173083 (HAdV-1), KF268199 (HAdV-5), and KR699642 (strain CBJ113)...

In this study, a passive sampling technique, diffusive gradients in thin films (DGT) was developed to simultaneously measure two drugs, methcathinone (MC) and ephedrine (EPH) in surface water. Four types of binding gels and four types of filter membranes were tested for the optimal configuration. XAD18 agarose binding gel and agarose diffusive gel, together with polyethersulfone filter membrane were used for measuring MC and EPH in the DGT device. 5% NH3 in acetonitrile was used as the elution solvent, with the elution efficiency for MC and EPH higher than 71%...

Measurement systems are very important in urban design. This article reviews the theories of grid plans, particularly with respect to the spatial formations of ancient capital cities in Asia, and clarifies three Chinese Capital Models. The "Zhōu lǐ" Capital Model (Z) is based on the ancient text "Zhōu lǐ" that makes mention of the ideal city. However, because the description of the physical plan of the city is very brief and includes contradictory elements, conclusions regarding the specifics of the city design are extremely difficult to reach...

Influenza vaccination is the most effective way to reduce the incidence of influenza infections. However, the role of influenza vaccination, such as school-based influenza vaccination, in preventing the influenza outbreaks in schools remains unclear now. In this study, a total of 286 school febrile outbreaks involving 6863 cases in the Beijing area from September 1, 2006 to March 31, 2017 were analyzed. We also tested 294 circulating strains isolated in Beijing during the same period and compared with that of vaccine strains identified every influenza season...
