[Clinical features of Wei Yuheng].  

PubMed

Wei Yuheng held that the endogenous miscellaneous diseases are mostly caused by liver diseases, highly stressed the treating method of nourishing yin to generate liver. He claimed that liver deficiency is mostly caused by congenital factors, sexual strain or improper treatment. He criticized that the improper treatment by elder generations mainly was caused by their ignorance of tonifying the liver based on the saying of "no tonifying treatment for the liver". Wei Yuheng's medical theories and clinical experiences are scattered in his book Xu Mingyi Lei'an (Supplement to Classified Case Records of Celebrated Physicians). Wang Mengying collected part of his thoughts and experiences and wrote the book Liuzhou Yihua (Liuzhou Medical Talks). Although Wang Mengying's book could deduce part of the thoughts of Wei Yuheng, it didn't disclose his theories completely. It is known to all that the compound recipe Yiguan Jian is a representative formula of Wei Yuheng to tonify liver yin. Actually, it can be concluded from the analysis of Xu Mingyi Lei'an that he used Fructus Lycii (Gouqi) as a main herb to tonify liver yin in the method of nourishing yin to generate liver. Based on the idea that there are accept, restriction, generation and transformation relationship among the lung, kidney and liver yin, so he also always used Radix Glehniae (Beishashen), Radix Ophiopogonis (Maidong), Radix Rehmanniae Recens (Shengdihuang), and Radix Rehmanniae Preparata (Shudihuang) in his compound recipes. If the yin blood is insufficient, Semen Ziziphi Spinosae (Suanzaoren) should be added. In order to prepare a out way for phlegm-heat caused dy liver yin deficiency, a lubricative, Semen Trichosanthis (Gualouren) was always used and raw Semen Coicis Recens (Shengyiyiren) too. Sichuan Rhizoma Coptidis (Chuanhuanglian) can be used to clear fire-heat, and Fructus Meliae Toosendan (Chuanlianzi) for pain caused by fire-heat. PMID:17096983

Lung cancer and indoor air pollution in Xuan Wei, China  

SciTech Connect

In Xuan Wei County, Yunnan Province, lung cancer mortality is among China's highest and, especially in females, is more closely associated with indoor burning of smoky coal, as opposed to wood or smokeless coal, than with tobacco smoking. Indoor air samples were collected during the burning of all three fuels. In contrast to wood and smokeless coal emissions, smoky coal emission has high concentrations of submicron particles containing mutagenic organics, especially in aromatic and polar fractions. These studies suggested an etiologic link between domestic smoky coal burning and lung cancer in Xuan Wei.

Communicating between the Apple and the Wang  

SciTech Connect

This manual covers what the beginner needs to know in order to transfer files between an Apple's Microcomputer and a Wang's OIS Word Processor. We have also tried to indicate where the experienced user might want to look for additional details. We cover the use of Apple Writer )(, VisiTerm, VisiCalc, and EasyWriter Professional. For us, the two most useful connections are from Applewriter to Wang and from Visicalc to Wang. From Wang to Apple Writer via Visiterm may have some value. Files can be transferred by VisiTerm to Wang, but they arrive with RETURNS in the middle of words, which have to be edited out, so we do not recommend it. We describe how to go from EasyWriter to Wang, but we do not know how to go from Wang to EasyWriter. We see no reason to go from Wang to VisiCalc, so we haven't thought about it. All instructions are given for a typical configuration of the Apple, namely the one on which this manual was composed. It is detailed in the section on Hardware and Software.

Lung cancer and indoor air pollution in Xuan Wei, China  

SciTech Connect

Xuan Wei County, China has an unusually high lung-cancer mortality rate that cannot be attributed to tobacco use or occupational exposure. Most Xuan Wei residents, especially women, are exposed domestically to smoke from unvented, open pit coal/wood fires used for cooking and heating. Samples collected during combustion of smoky coal, smokeless coal, and wood were examined for physical and chemical characteristics and for mutagenicity in the Ames Salmonella mutagenesis assay. Samples collected in two communes in which lung cancer rates are high and smoky coal is the predominant fuel contained high concentrations of submicron particles of high organic content. Indoor levels of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in these communes were comparable to occupational exposure levels. Samples from homes in a wood-burning commune that has a low lung cancer rate, on the other hand, mostly consisted of larger particles of lower organic content. Extracts of these samples, containing mostly polar compounds displayed little mutagenicity.

Assessing indoor-air-pollution exposure and lung-cancer risk in Xuan Wei, China  

SciTech Connect

The report presents risk assessment-related aspects of a multidisciplinary study of indoor coal smoke pollution and lung cancer in Xuan Wei County, Yunnan Province, China. Xuan Wei presents a unique natural experiment in environmental carcinogenesis because lung cancer mortality rates and indoor pollution exposures vary widely within the County. Current evidence links lung cancer with domestic burning of 'smoky coal,' as opposed to 'smokeless coal' and wood. Efforts to determine the most carcinogenic components of smoky coal pollution are in progress, as are efforts to develop a quantitative relationship of pollution dose with lung cancer response in Xuan Wei. Some available evidence suggests that the composition of indoor pollution does not vary greatly throughout Xuan Wei, and thus that lung cancer risk is a function of overall pollution exposure. Other evidence suggests that different Xuan Wei fuels exhibit different carcinogenic potencies. On-site and laboratory studies are being conducted to distinguish between these possibilities.

Orszag Tang vortex - Kinetic study of a turbulent plasma  

SciTech Connect

Kinetic evolution of the Orszag-Tang vortex is studied using collisionless hybrid simulations based on particle in cell ions and fluid electrons. In magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) this configuration leads rapidly to broadband turbulence. An earlier study estimated the dissipation in the system. A comparison of MHD and hybrid simulations showed similar behavior at large scales but substantial differences at small scales. The hybrid magnetic energy spectrum shows a break at the scale where Hall term in the Ohm's law becomes important. The protons heat perpendicularly and most of the energy is dissipated through magnetic interactions. Here, the space time structure of the system is studied using frequency-wavenumber (k-omega) decomposition. No clear resonances appear, ruling out the cyclotron resonances as a likely candidate for the perpendicular heating. The only distinguishable wave modes present, which constitute a small percentage of total energy, are magnetosonic modes.

Beyond Tang: The Hidden Benefits of the Space Program  

SciTech Connect

Most people are familiar with the advertisement touting Tang as the orange drink that the astronauts took to the Moon. However, many other products have resulted from the space program, as well as discoveries with applications to everyday life. NASA highlights these products and information in an annual publication entitled 'Spinoffs'. Bar coding, medical imaging, suits worn by fire-fighters, smoke detectors, and thermal gloves and boots are all examples of products resulting from technologies developed in support of the space program. Detection of the 750K surface temperature of Venus in the 1960's led to the realization that the greenhouse effect (or 'global warming') is a real physical manifestation and resulted in concerns about our own terrestrial environment. Debate about the possibility of underground life on Mars spurred investigations which found organisms living inside rocks on the Earth. These spinoffs and more will be discussed.

Wei-Norman equations for a unitary evolution  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Wei-Norman technique allows one to express the solution of a system of linear non-autonomous differential equations in terms of product of exponentials with time-dependent exponents being solutions of a system of nonlinear differential equations. We show that in the unitary case, i.e. when the solution of the linear system is given by a unitary evolution operator, the nonlinear system, by an appropriate choice of ordering, can be reduced to a hierarchy of matrix Riccati equations. To this end, we consider a general linear non-autonomous dynamical system on the special linear group SL(N, {C}). The unitary case, of particular significance for quantum optimal control problems, is then obtained by restriction to anti-Hermitian generators. We also point to the connections of the obtained results with the theory of the so-called Lie systems.

The full-scale process and design changes for elimination of insulation edge separations and voids in tang flap area  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Qualification of the full-scale process and design changes for elimination of redesigned solid rocket motor tang nitrile butadiene rubber insulation edge separations and voids was performed from 24 March to 3 December 1990. The objectives of this test were: to qualify design and process changes on flight hardware using a tie ply between the redesigned solid rocket motor steel case and the nitrile butadiene rubber insulation over the tang capture features; to qualify the use of methyl ethyl ketone in the tang flap region to reduce voids; and to determine if holes in the separator film reduce voids in the tang flap region. The tie ply is intended to aid insulation flow during the insulation cure process, and thus reduce or eliminate edge unbonds. Methyl ethyl ketone is intended to reduce voids in the tang flap area by providing better tacking characteristics. The perforated film was intended to provide possible vertical breathe paths to reduce voids in the tang area. Tang tie ply testing consisted of 270 deg of the tang circumference using a new layup method and 90 deg of the tang circumference using the current layup methods. Tie ply process success was defined as a reduction of insulation unbonds. Lack of any insulation edge unbonds on the tang area where the new process was used, and the presence of 17 unbonds with the current process, proves the test to be a success. Successful completion of this test has qualified the new processes.

[High performance liquid chromatographic fingerprints of Baihe Zhimu Tang and its correlation to single herb].  

PubMed

The high performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) fingerprints of Baihe Zhimu Tang were established for evaluating the effective substance basis and compatibility regulation of Baihe Zhimu Tang. An Agela Venusil XBP-C18 column (250 mm x 4.6 mm, 5 microm) was employed, and the gradient elution of acetonitrile and 0. 1% formic acid was used as mobile phase with a flow rate of 1 mL/min, the detection wavelength was set at 315 nm, and the column temperature was set at 25 degrees C. By taking mangiferin as the reference substance, the fingerprints of 10 batches of Baihe Zhimu Tang prepared by Bulbus Lilii and Rhizoma Anemarrhenae from different producing areas were analyzed under the same chromatographic conditions. The results showed that there were 16 common peaks contained in the tested samples. Five constituents were identified as 5-hydroxymethyl-2-furaldehyde (5-HMF), neomangiferin, mangiferin, isomangiferin and regaloside B by comparing the retention times and ultraviolet spectra of the peaks with those of the reference substances. The HPLC fingerprints of Baihe Zhimu Tang established with the above method show good characteristic and repeatability, and the method is stable and reliable, it can be used for the quality control of Baihe Zhimu Tang. The main chromatographic peaks of the HPLC fingerprints of Baihe Zhimu Tang were identified in the experiment and also 5-HMF was identified as the main constituent which changed significantly in decocting process.

Compressing random microstructures via stochastic Wang tilings.

This Rapid Communication presents a stochastic Wang tiling-based technique to compress or reconstruct disordered microstructures on the basis of given spatial statistics. Unlike the existing approaches based on a single unit cell, it utilizes a finite set of tiles assembled by a stochastic tiling algorithm, thereby allowing to accurately reproduce long-range orientation orders in a computationally efficient manner. Although the basic features of the method are demonstrated for a two-dimensional particulate suspension, the present framework is fully extensible to generic multidimensional media. PMID:23214516

Structural behavior of the space shuttle SRM tang-clevis joint  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The space shuttle Challenger accident investigation focused on the failure of a tang-clevis joint on the right solid rocket motor. The existence of relative motion between the inner arm of the clevis and the O-ring sealing surface on the tang has been identified as a potential contributor to this failure. This motion can cause the O-rings to become unseated and therefore lose their sealing capability. Finite element structural analyses have been performed to predict both deflections and stresses in the joint under the primary, pressure loading condition. These analyses have demonstrated the difficulty of accurately predicting the structural behavior of the tang-clevis joint. Stresses in the vicinity of the connecting pins, obtained from elastic analyses, considerably exceed the material yield allowables indicating that inelastic analyses are probably necessary. Two modifications have been proposed to control the relative motion between the inner clevis arm and the tang at the O-ring sealing surface. One modification, referred to as the capture feature, uses additional material on the inside of the tang to restrict motion of the inner clevis arm. The other modification uses external stiffening rings above and below the joint to control the local bending in the shell near the joint. Both of these modifications are shown to be effective in controlling the relative motion in the joint.

Yukmijihwang-tang protects against cyclophosphamide-induced reproductive toxicity.  

PubMed

A side effect of cyclophosphamide (CP), an alkylating agent widely used to treat tumors and autoimmune disorders, is the alteration of male reproductive function. Yukmijihwang-tang (YJT) is a multi-herbal medicinal formula that has been used in traditional Asian medicine to treat male reproductive problems. In this study, we investigated the effects of YJT on CP-induced reproductive toxicities in rat testes. Eight-week-old male Wistar rats were divided into three groups: vehicle-treated (control), CP-treated and CP+YJT-treated groups. CP was administered for the first 7 days (20 mg/kg/day, p.o.), and YJT was administered for 56 days consecutively (1.0 g/kg/day, p.o.). The CP-treated group showed significant decreases in the weight of the testes, epididymal sperm count and sperm motility compared to the control group, while the CP+YJT-treated group had significant increases for these variables compared to the CP-treated group. The enhancement of lipid peroxidation by CP in the rat testes was reduced by YJT treatment. CP diminished the expression of cAMP-responsive element modulator (CREM), a transcription factor that is highly expressed in male germ cells and is crucial to post-meiotic germ cell differentiation. YJT restored CREM at both the mRNA and protein levels. These results suggest that YJT has a protective effect against CP-induced reproductive toxicities by inhibiting the increases in lipid peroxidation and enhancing CREM expression. PMID:17624719

Effects of traditional Chinese medicine Wei-Wei-Kang-Granule on the expression of EGFR and NF-KB in chronic atrophic gastritis rats.  

PubMed

Wei-Wei-Kang-Granule(WWKG) is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) preparation for the treatment of chronic atrophic gastritis (CAG). We examined the pathologic change and the effects of Wei-Wei-Kang-Granule (WWKG) on the expression of EGFR (epiderminal growth factor receptors) and NF-kB (nuclear transcription factor KappaB) in rats with chronic atrophic gastritis (CAG), and evaluated the possible mechanisms. Ninety rats were randomly divided into control group and four experimental groups. CAG rat models were induced by repeated stimulating experiments in the experimental groups. After modeled rats were intragastrically injected (i.g.) with WWKG at 6000mg/kg (large dose WWKG group), WWKG at 3000mg/kg (small dose WWKG group), San-Jiu-Wei-Tai-Granule(SJWTG) at 1600mg/kg(SJWTG group), and normal saline(0.9%)at 20ml/kg (model group and control group), respectively, once a day for 30 days. After 30 days, all rats were sacrificed and samples were taken from the sinus ventriculi and body of stomach. The gastric specimens were prepared for microscopic view with hematoxylin and eosin (H-E). The immunohistochemistry method was used to observe the expression of protein of EGFR and NF-kB in gastric tissue. The data were analyzed in pre-and post-treatment by computer image automatic analysis system. Immunohistochemistry detection showed that the average optical density of EGFR and NF-kB in antrum was lower in large and small dose WWKG groups than the model group (P<0.01). CAG in rats was related with the damage of barrier in gastric mucosa and the misbalance of cell proliferation and apoptosis. One of the mechanisms is perhaps to reduce the expressing of EGFR and NF-Kb in gastric mucosa. PMID:23983313

The pharmacokinetics and anti-inflammatory effects of Sanhuang Xiexin Tang, composed of Rhei Radix et Rhizoma, Scutellariae Radix, and Coptidis Rhizoma, prepared by decoction and maceration, were investigated and compared. Rats were orally administered with the decoction and maceration of Sanhuang Xiexin Tang at 30?g/kg. The concentrations of 10 active constituents (berberine, palmatine, jatrorrhizine, coptisine, wogonin, baicalin, wogonoside, emodin, aloe-emodin, and rhein) in plasma were determined by UPLC-MS/MS. Mice were orally administered decoctions and macerations of Sanhuang Xiexin Tang continuously for 7 days at three doses and stimulated with lipopolysaccharide. The plasma concentrations of IL-10 and TNF-? were determined by ELISA. Different preparation methods resulted in significant differences in the pharmacokinetic characteristics of the SXT constituents, especially the protoberberine alkaloids. Maceration decreased the absorption of flavones while promoting the absorption of anthraquinones. Bioavailability of both flavones and anthraquinones increased after administration of macerated Sanhuang Xiexin Tang, especially those of baicalin and rhein, which increased by 3.27 and 7.10 times. Results of ELISA indicated that both the decoction and maceration of Sanhuang Xiexin Tang could significantly increase IL-10 production (p?Tang has a slightly higher anti-inflammatory effect than the Sanhuang Xiexin Tang decoction.

Comparison of Swendsen-Wang and Heat-Bath Dynamics  

E-print Network

We prove that the spectral gap of the Swendsen-Wang process for the Potts model on graphs with bounded degree is bounded from below by some constant times the spectral gap of any single-spin dynamics. This implies rapid mixing of the Swendsen-Wang process for the two-dimensional Potts model at all temperatures above the critical one, as well as rapid mixing at the critical temperature for the Ising model. After this we introduce a modified version of the Swendsen-Wang algorithm for planar graphs and prove rapid mixing for the two-dimensional Potts models at all non-critical temperatures.

The historic evolution of Zhouyuan and the newest activity of the great Wei River fault  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The rate of vertical differential movement of the great Weihe fault (west segment) in different periods is analyzed by using the data of the historic evolution of the Zhouyuan plateau surface. Results show that the rate reached a maximum in the Ming Dynasty, about 6.4 mm/a, which corresponded well to the period of strong earthquake on the Wei River fault in the 15 16th centuries. Based on such a correspondence, the time separation between active periods of M s=8.0 strong earthquakes in the Wei River fault depression is investigated.

Epidemiology of lung cancer in Xuan Wei, China: current progress, issues, and research strategies  

SciTech Connect

In Xuan Wei, a rural Chinese county of about one million people, females' annual lung cancer mortality is China's highest, and males' is among China's highest. Xuan Wei's very high indoor air pollution levels (sometimes exceeding 20 mg/m3), residentially stable population, relatively uncomplicated lifestyle, and wide geographic variation in lung cancer mortality render it highly amenable to quantitative, interdisciplinary investigation of chemical carcinogens due to indoor air pollution. To date, epidemiologic findings reveal a closer association of lung cancer with the indoor burning of smoky coal (as opposed to smokeless coal or wood) than with tobacco use or occupation. Current aerometric, chemical, and toxicologic findings tend to confirm this association, though the specific carcinogenic constituents of Xuan Wei indoor air pollution have not yet been determined. Chinese and American investigators are conducting interdisciplinary field and laboratory investigations to quantify the lung cancer risk attendant on indoor air pollution relative to other factors, to measure and compare the characteristics of pollution from different Xuan Wei fuels, to determine the relative etiologic importance of pollution composition and concentration, and to develop quantitative relationships between air pollution dose and lung cancer risk.

Effect of traditional Chinese herbal medicines on the pharmacokinetics of western drugs in SD rats of different ages. I. Aminophylline-Tin chuan Tang and aminophylline-Hsiao Ching Long Tang.  

PubMed

The effect of the traditional Chinese herbal medicines (Tin Chuan Tang and Hsiao Ching Long Tang) on the serum concentrations and pharmacokinetics of aminophylline was examined in three different ages of SD rats. Each traditional Chinese herbal medicine was orally preadministered to SD rats for one week and then aminophylline was administered intravenously. The serum concentrations and pharmacokinetic parameters of theophylline were estimated by a two-compartment open model. The liver isolated after the last blood sampling was homogenized and the activity of hepatic cytochrome p-450 was determined. Significant difference was found in some pharmacokinetic parameters of theophylline such as K10, t 1/2, Cl and Vd for three different ages of SD rats without pretreatment with Chinese herbal drugs (p less than 0.05). However, pretreatment with Tin Chuan Tang or Hsiao Ching Long Tang did not affect the pharmacokinetic parameters of theophylline in three different ages of SD rats (p greater than 0.05). We also found that there was no correlation between age and activity of cytochrome p-450 of SD rats (p greater than 0.05). The decline in some pharmacokinetic parameters of theophylline in the elderly rats perhaps might be attributed to the decrease in hepatic blood flow and liver volume. It is concluded that there was no drug interaction between theophylline and Tin Chuan Tang or Hsiao Ching Long Tang in the different ages of SD rats. PMID:1941501

The Mueller-Tang jet impact factor at NLO from the high energy effective action  

E-print Network

We report on recent progress in the evaluation of next-to-leading order observables using Lipatov's QCD high energy effective action. In this contribution we focus on the determination of the real part of the next-to-leading order corrections to the Mueller-Tang impact factor which is the only missing element for a complete NLO BFKL description of quark induced dijet events with a rapidity gap.

We complete the computation of the Mueller-Tang jet impact factor at next-to-leading order (NLO) initiated in arXiv:1406.5625 and presented in arXiv:1404.2937 by computing the real corrections associated to gluons in the initial state making use of Lipatov's effective action. NLO corrections for this effective vertex are an important ingredient for a reliable description of large rapidity gap phenomenology within the BFKL approach.

Simulation of blue and green water resources in the Wei River basin, China  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Wei River is the largest tributary of the Yellow River in China and it is suffering from water scarcity and water pollution. In order to quantify the amount of water resources in the study area, a hydrological modelling approach was applied by using SWAT (Soil and Water Assessment Tool), calibrated and validated with SUFI-2 (Sequential Uncertainty Fitting program) based on river discharge in the Wei River basin (WRB). Sensitivity and uncertainty analyses were also performed to improve the model performance. Water resources components of blue water flow, green water flow and green water storage were estimated at the HRU (Hydrological Response Unit) scales. Water resources in HRUs were also aggregated to sub-basins, river catchments, and then city/region scales for further analysis. The results showed that most parts of the WRB experienced a decrease in blue water resources between the 1960s and 2000s, with a minimum value in the 1990s. The decrease is particularly significant in the most southern part of the WRB (Guanzhong Plain), one of the most important grain production basements in China. Variations of green water flow and green water storage were relatively small on the spatial and temporal dimensions. This study provides strategic information for optimal utilization of water resources and planning of cultivating seasons in the Wei River basin.

High-performance liquid chromatography determination and pharmacokinetics of coumarin compounds after oral administration of Samul-Tang to rats  

PubMed Central

Background: Samul-tang has been traditionally used for the treatment of cardiovascular, gynecologic, cutaneous, and chronic inflammation disorders. Although coumarin compounds do have various pharmacological activities and the same may be present in Samul-tang, however there is little information about it. Objective: A simple and sensitive high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method has been developed for the determination of nodakenin, nodakenetin, decursin, decursinol, and decursinol angelate in rat plasma. To obtain a better understanding for pharmacological properties of Samul-tang, pharmacokinetic study of coumarin compounds was performed after oral administration of Samul-tang in rats. Materials and Methods: Chromatographic separation of the analytes was successfully achieved on a Phenomenex Luna C18 column (4.6 mm250 mm, 5 ?m) using a mobile phase composed of acetonitrile water with a gradient elution at a flow rate of 1 mL/min. Noncompartmental analysis was performed. Results: Calibration curves for all analytes had good linearity (r2 <0.999) in a wide linear range. The lower limit of quantification (LLOQ) ranged from 0.05 to 0.1 ?g/mL. The variation of intra- and interday assay was less than 15%. Nodakenin, nodakenetin, and decursinol were determined in rat plasma after oral administration of Samul-tang. Conclusion: This developed and validated HPLC method was successfully applied to the pharmacokinetic study of three coumarin compounds in rats, given as a single oral administration of Samul-tang. These pharmacokinetic data of the nodakenin, nodakenetin, and decursinol could offer a new point of view to evaluate the pharmacological effects of Samul-tang. PMID:24696544

Analysis of the elemental composition of Tang Sancai from the four major kilns in China using EDXRF  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Tang Sancai was widely used in the Tang Dynasty, and the study of this pottery provides information about the sociocultural aspects of the Tang people. To understand the characteristics of the different kilns for the production of Tang Sancai, Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (EDXRF) was used to analyze 174 Tang Sancai shards. These specimens were selected from four production centers in the Tang Dynasty, namely, the Huangye Kiln, the Huangbu Kiln, the Xing Kiln and the Liquanfang Kiln. The results demonstrate that the clay bodies from different kilns have varying compositions, and each kiln has a unique elemental fingerprint. Of the 17 elements analyzed, TiO2 and Fe2O3 had distinctly different contents in the samples from the Huangye Kiln and the Huangbu Kiln. For the Xing Kiln and the Huangye Kiln, the characteristic elements are Fe2O3 and MnO. For the Xing Kiln and the Huangbu Kiln, the most dissimilar elements are TiO2, MnO and ZnO. When the Principal Component Analysis (PCA) was employed, the data points for the Huangye Kiln, the Huangbu Kiln and the Xing Kiln fell into distinct areas. For the Liquanfang Kiln, the contents of Al2O3 and Fe2O3 in white-bodied samples are different from those of other colors, which indicates that at least two types of raw materials were used. When compared with the white-bodied samples from the other three kilns, the white-bodied samples from the Liquanfang Kiln were found to have compositions similar to those of the samples from the Huangye Kiln, rather than the Huangbu Kiln, although the latter is much closer geographically than the former. All the obtained data provide valuable scientific criteria for provenance identification for Tang Sancai of unknown origin.

Morphological and molecular differentiation between Dicrocoelium dendriticum (Rudolphi, 1819) and Dicrocoelium chinensis (Sudarikov and Ryjikov, 1951) Tang and Tang, 1978 (Platyhelminthes: Digenea).  

PubMed

Dicrocoelium dendriticum (Rudolphi, 1819) and Dicrocoelium hospes (Looss, 1907) are recognised to affect the liver of domestic and wild ruminants. A third species, Dicrocoelium orientalis which was described from musk deer in the Baikal region of the former Soviet Union and re-named to Dicrocoelium chinensis (Sudarikov and Ryjikov, 1951) Tang and Tang, 1978 was isolated from other species of deer in Asian countries and from mouflon and roe deer in Europe. Scant information is available for D. chinensis, including the range of species that act as definitive and intermediate hosts. To provide morphological and molecular evidences differentiating D. chinensis versus D. dendriticum, 239 Dicrocoelium spp. specimens were collected from sheep, cattle and sika deer from different localities in Austria, Germany and Italy. Specimens were morphologically identified based on the testes orientation, overall size, and level of maximum body width and other morphometric measurements. From this sample, 10 specimens of D. chinensis and 25 of D. dendriticum from different hosts and geographical localities were characterized molecularly through sequencing of partial 18S rDNA (approximately 1400 bp) and ITS-2 (including the 5.8S and 28S flanking regions; approximately 600 bp). Interspecific differences between D. dendriticum and D. chinensis of 0.14% and 3.8% were recorded in 18S rRNA and ITS-2 sequences, respectively. Phylogenetic analyses via Bayesian inference were conducted using sequences of ITS-2 (276 bp) and partial 28S (221 bp) of the above species of Dicrocoelium together with 20 species belonging to the Xiphidiata within the Plagiorchiida available in GenBank. Both gene regions were strongly concordant in differentiating the Dicrocoeliidae, Gorgoderidae and Plagiorchiidae and were in agreement with their current classification. Morphological and molecular characterization clearly differentiate D. dendriticum and D. chinensis as two distinct digeneans infecting ruminants. The implications on the separate status of D. chinensis on the etiology, biology and diagnosis of dicrocoeliosis are discussed. PMID:17803950

Hwangryun-Hae-Dok-tang (Huanglian-Jie-Du-Tang) extract and its constituents reduce ischemia-reperfusion brain injury and neutrophil infiltration in rats.  

PubMed

The preventive effect of Hwangryun-Hae-Dok-tang (HHDT, Huanglian-Jie-Du-Tang), a Chinese herbal medicine, and its ingredients on ischemia/reperfusion-induced brain injury was evaluated in the rat brain. HHDT consists of four herbs, namely, Coptidis rhizoma, Scutellariae radix, Phellodendri cortex, and Gardeniae fructus. Ischemia was induced by intraluminal occlusion of the right middle cerebral artery for 120 min and reperfusion was continued for 22 h. HHDT (200 mg/kg), Coptidis rhizoma (100 mg/kg), Scutellariae radix (100 mg/kg), Phellodendri cortex (100 mg/kg), and Gardeniae fructus (100 mg/kg) were orally administered, promptly prior to reperfusion and 2 h after reperfusion. Baicalein, a component of Scutellariae radix, was also examined at a dosage of 50 mg/kg given 2 h apart, promptly prior to and 2 h after reperfusion. Total infarction volume in the ipsilateral hemisphere of ischemia/reperfusion rats was significantly lowered by treatment with HHDT, Scutellariae radix, and balicalein. However, the other ingredient of HHDT did not show any ameliorating effects on total infarction volume. The inhibiting effect of Scutellariae radix on total infarction volume was much higher than that of the others. In addition, HHDT, Scutellariae radix, and baicalein significantly inhibited myeloperoxidase (MPO) activity, an index of neutrophil infiltration in ischemic brain tissue at about the same rate (30%). There was marked mismatch between total infarction volume and MPO activity in the Scutellariae radix-treated rats but not in the HHDT- and baicalein-treated groups. Our findings suggest that Scutellariae radix as an ingredient of HHDT plays a crucial protective role in ischemia-induced brain injury. In addition, it is apparent that the effect of Scutellariae radix is the result, in part, of baicalein, a compound contained in Scutellariae radix. PMID:12204769

Spatial and temporal variations of nitrogen pollution in Wen-Rui Tang River watershed, Zhejiang, China.  

PubMed

Water quality has degraded dramatically in Wen-Rui Tang River watershed, Zhejiang, China, especially due to rapid economic development since 1995. This paper aims to assess spatial and temporal variations of the main pollutants (NH??-N, TN, BOD(5), COD(Mn), DO) of water quality in Wen-Rui Tang River watershed, using the geographic information system, cluster analysis (CA) and principal component analysis (PCA). Results showed that concentrations of BOD(5), COD(Mn), NH??-N, and TN were significantly higher in tertiary rivers than in primary and secondary rivers. From April 2006 to March 2007, the concentrations of NH? ?-N (2.25-57.9 mg/L) and TN (3.78-70.4 mg/L) in all samples exceeded Type V national water quality standards (?2 mg/L), while 5.3% of all COD(Mn) (1.83-27.5 mg/L) and 33.6% of all BOD(5) (0.34-50.4 mg/L) samples exceeded Type V national water quality standards (COD(Mn)?? 15 mg/L, BOD(5)?? 10 mg/L). Monthly changes of pollutant concentrations did not show a clear pattern, but correlation analysis indicated that NH??-N and TN in tertiary rivers had a significant negative correlation with 5-day cumulative rainfall and monthly rainfall, while there were no significant correlations in primary and secondary rivers. The results of CA and spatial analysis showed that the northern part of Wen-Rui Tang River watershed was the most seriously polluted. This region is characterized by the high population density and industrial and commercial activities. The PCA and spatial analysis indicated that the degraded water quality is caused by anthropogenic activities and poor wastewater management. PMID:21161588

The Rubber Band Revisited: Wang-Landau Simulation  

E-print Network

In this work we apply Wang-Landau simulations to a simple model which has exact solutions both in the microcanonical and canonical formalisms. The simulations were carried out by using an updated version of the Wang-Landau sampling. We consider a homopolymer chain consisting of $N$ monomers units which may assume any configuration on the two-dimensional lattice. By imposing constraints to the moves of the polymers we obtain three different models. Our results show that updating the density of states only after every $N$ monomers moves leads to a better precision. We obtain the specific heat and the end-to-end distance per monomer and test the precision of our simulations comparing the location of the maximum of the specific heat with the exact results for the three types of walks.

Monte Carlo simulations using Wang-Landau sampling are performed to study three-dimensional chains of homopolymers on a lattice. We confirm the accuracy of the method by calculating the thermodynamic properties of this system. Our results are in good agreement with those obtained using Metropolis importance sampling. This algorithm enables one to accurately simulate the usually hardly accessible low-temperature regions since it determines the density of states in a single simulation.

We introduce a parallel Wang Landau method based on the replica-exchange framework for Monte Carlo simulations. To demonstrate its advantages and general applicability for simulations of com- plex systems, we apply it to the self-assembly process in amphiphilic solutions and to lattice protein adsorption. Without loss of accuracy, the method gives significant speed-up on small architectures like multi-core processors, and should be beneficial for petaflop machines.

Protective and therapeutic effects of huanglian-jie-du-tang on hepatotoxin-induced liver injuries.  

PubMed

The hepatoprotective effect of Huanglian-Jie-Du-Tang (HLJDT), a Chinese medicinal prescription, was investigated in three kinds of experimental models. The animals were treated with HLJDT (300 mg/kg, p.o.) thrice at 2, 4 and 10 hours after administration with carbon tetrachloride (32 microliters/kg, i.p.), acetaminophen (600 mg/kg, i.p.) and beta-D-galactosamine (188 mg/kg, i.p.). Significant hepatoprotective effects on carbon tetrachloride and acetaminophen induced liver injuries were noted, but no significant effect on beta-D-galactosamine induced liver injury was observed. These hepatoprotective effects were evidenced by comparing the serum glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase (SGOT) and serum glutamate pyruvate transaminase (SGPT) levels in HLJDT treated and untreated groups. Serum enzyme activities in the carbon tetrachloride and acetaminophen experiments were significantly lower in the treated groups while the herbal prescription has no effect on the beta-D-galactosamine experiment. These results demonstrated that Huanglian-Jie-Du-Tang has a hepatoprotective effect against experimental liver injuries induced by specific hepatotoxins, and therefore may be useful in treating some, but not all, liver injuries.

Lung cancer and indoor exposure of unvented coal and wood combustion emissions in Xuan Wei, china  

SciTech Connect

Residents of Xuan Wei County in China have unusually high lung cancer mortality that cannot be attributed to tobacco use or occupational exposure. They are exposed to smoke from unvented, open pit coal or wood fires (often used for cooking and heating). The variation in lung cancer rates among communes within the county suggests that indoor combustion of smoky coal may be the prime determinant of lung cancer. To characterize the air in Xuan Wei homes, samples of the air particles and semivolatile organics were collected from homes located in communes with different lung-cancer rates. Samples collected in the commune in which the lung-cancer rate is high and smoky coal is the predominant fuel-contained high concentrations of submicron particles with high organic content; organic extracts of these samples were mutagenic. Samples from homes in a wood-burning commune, which has a low lung-cancer rate, consisted mostly of larger particles of lower organic content and mutagenicity. The smoky coal sample was also a more potent skin-tumor initiator compared to the wood or smokeless coal sample and was a mouse skin carcinogen.

Effect of Zhenwu Tang Granule on pressure-overloaded left ventricular myocardial hypertrophy in rats  

PubMed Central

BACKGROUND: In the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, few studies have focused on the compound preparations though there are many investigations. The present study was undertaken to investigate the effect of Zhenwu Tang Granule on chronic pressure-overloaded left ventricular hypertrophy in rats. METHODS: The study was performed at the laboratory of Guangzhou Institute of Respiratory Disease. Male SD rats were divided randomly into 3 groups: sham operation group (n=8), operation group (n=15) and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) group (n=15). The model of myocardial hypertrophy was made by gradually constricting the abdominal aorta. Sixteen weeks later, cardiac ultrasonography was performed in all groups in order to ascertain post-operational left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy. And Zhenwu Tang Granule was added at a dose of 12 g/kg in the mixed feedstuff for 8 weeks in the TCM group. In the 24th week, weight, structure as well as function of the heart in each group were measured by high-frequency ultrasonography, and Massons staining was performed on the cardiac muscles. Meanwhile, total collagen volume fraction (CVF-T) and non-coronary vessel collagen volume fraction (CVF-NV) were analyzed. RESULTS: There was an increase in the weight of the heart in the operation group, with the left ventricule dominated (P<0.05). The heart was enlarged, with diastolic interventricular septal distance (IVSd) and left ventricular posterior wall distance (LVPWd) dominated (P<0.01). There was a significant decrease in the cardiac function (P<0.05). The weight (P<0.01) and volume of the heart decreased in the TCM group compared with the operation group, with IVSd and systolic left ventricular posterior wall dominated (P<0.01). And the cardiac function was improved (P<0.05). Significant interstitial and collagen hyperplasia was shown in the operation group based on pathological analysis, and various improvements were proved in the TCM group, i.e. there was a significant decrease in CVF-T and CVF-NV (P<0.01) compared with the operation group; but no difference (P>0.05) was found when compared with the pseudo-operation group. CONCLUSION: Zhenwu Tang Granule could reduce the weight and volume of the heart, improve the cardiac function, inhibit hyperplasia of collagen, and reverse myocardial hypertrophy in rats with pressure-overloaded left ventricular hypertrophy.

Use of Herbal Dietary Supplement Si-Wu-Tang and Health-Related Quality of Life in Postpartum Women: A Population-Based Correlational Study  

PubMed Central

Objective. The aim of the study was to explore the association between women's use of herbal dietary supplement Si-Wu-Tang during the postpartum period and their health-related quality of life. Methods. This is a population-based correlational study. We used multistage, stratified, systematic sampling to recruit 24,200 pairs of postpartum women and newborns from the Taiwan National Birth Registry in 2005. A structured questionnaire was successfully administered to 87.8% of the sampled population. Trained interviewers performed home interviews 6 months after the women's deliveries between June 2005 and July 2006. The Medical Outcomes Study 36-item Short-Form (SF-36) was used to measure the quality of life of the women along with the frequency of Si-Wu-Tang use. Results. Si-Wu-Tang use after delivery improved women's score for bodily pain and also improved their score for mental health when used more than 10 times. In addition, there were increases in general health and vitality scores in the group who continuously used Si-Wu-Tang more than 10 times after using Sheng-Hua-Tang. Conclusion. Use of Si-Wu-Tang after delivery may be associated with women's health-related quality of life especially for those who previously used Sheng-Hua-Tang. These results are exploratory and need to be replicated. PMID:23476705

Numerical simulation of the compressible Orszag-Tang vortex 2. Supersonic flow  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The numerical investigation of the Orszag-Tang vortex system in compressible magnetofluids will consider initial conditions with embedded supersonic regions. The simulations have initial average Mach numbers 1.0 and 1.5 and beta 10/3 with Lundquist numbers 50, 100, or 200. The behavior of the system differs significantly from that found previously for the incompressible and subsonic analogs. Shocks form at the downstream boundaries of the embedded supersonic regions outside the central magnetic X-point and produce strong local current sheets which dissipate appreciable magnetic energy. Reconnection at the central X-point, which dominates the incompressible and subsonic systems, peaks later and has a smaller impact as M increases from 0.6 to 1.5. Similarly, correlation between the momentum and magnetic field begins significant growth later than in subsonic and incompressible flows. The shocks bound large compression regions, which dominate the wavenumber spectra of autocorrelations in mass density, velocity, and magnetic field.

Convergence for the Wang-Landau Density of States  

SciTech Connect

The Wang-Landau method of estimating the density of states, g (E), has become a powerful tool in statistical mechanics. Here it is shown that the distribution of random walkers sampled using an estimated density of states can always be used to improve the estimate. Specifically, this can be done without resorting to an auxiliary modification factor, f, which previously has been been used to find g (E) self consistently through a procedure that reduces f incrementally towards unity. The new, straight-forward approach is validated for multiple, independent random walkers.

Lung Cancer Mortality Among Women in Xuan Wei, China: A Comparison of Spatial Clustering Detection Methods.  

PubMed

The identification of spatial clusters of lung cancer mortality can be a useful instrument in detecting locations with high risk of this disease. This study compared 2 methods for identifying spatial clusters of village-level women lung cancer mortality rates in Xuan Wei. One used a local indicator of spatial association to detect which groups of neighboring villages had lung cancer mortality rates that were significantly related to each other. The other was a spatial scan technique that calculated a maximum likelihood ratio of lung cancer deaths relative to the underlying population in order to identify the group of villages with relatively higher risk. As each technique based its cluster detection process on its own criteria, different clusters of villages were identified. However, the overlapping indicated that the 2 methods illustrated different components of the same clusters. These spatial analytic techniques were complementary to each other and can be used jointly rather than separately. PMID:22548776

Ke Wang, a Chinese television soap opera with a message.  

PubMed

The Chinese soap opera, Ke Wang, was created by Li Xiaoming between August 1989 and June 1990 and produced at a cost of US$4650 per episode. The characters were drawn from everyday ordinary Chinese life: a traditional and open-minded and caring woman, a typical mother who works hard and loves her children, a highly educated upwardly mobile man who divorces his wife, a professor criticized during the Cultural Revolution, a doctor prejudiced against ordinary people, a kind honest man who marries the divorcee, a friend of the divorcee, a man who is optimistic in spite of bad experiences during the Cultural Revolution, and an excellent medical doctor who also resolves conflicts. The program was very popular, even among Communists, because of its value-based content, the real-life nature of the show, the change from highly restricted programming, the elaborate and supportive media coverage, and dialogue which closely matches audience preferences. The show has been aired by over 100 stations to date and has reached a total estimated audience of 550 million. The sale of television sets has increased since the show's appearance. The script reflects the conflicts between traditional and modern Chinese values. Pro-social values and behaviors are learned from the role models depicted; examples are given of immediate social impact. Ke Wang was a by-product of the Beijing Television Arts Center's interest in designing television programs that are relevant to the lives of ordinary people. The 60-minute scripts dealt with issues such as the status of women, social morality, family harmony, class conflict, responsible parenthood, maintenance of traditional culture, volunteerism, child development, and coping with physical disability. The Chinese government hailed Ke Wang as model television and awarded US$20,000 in prize money to the producers. The Chinese government is planning to produce other entertainment-education soap operas, which raises the problem of blatant, political propaganda. In 1989, after the Tinanmen Square events, the controversial He Shang, which attacked cultural symbols, was denounced and banned. PMID:12286006

Simultaneous determination of eight marker compounds in the traditional herbal medicine, Sipjundaebo-tang by HPLC-DAD.  

PubMed

Sipjundaebo-tang, known as a traditional herbal medicine, has been used in the treatment of anemia, inflammation, and tumor. For simultaneous determination of eight components, namely 5-HMF, paeoniflorin, ferulic acid, cinnamaldehyde, decursinol, 6-gingerol, decursin, and glycyrrhizin in Sipjundaebo-tang, a high performance liquid chromatography-diode array detector (HPLC-DAD) method was established. In order to develop and validate this HPLC-DAD method, C(18) column (S-5 ?m, 4.6 250 mm) was used with gradient mobile phase at the column temperature of 35C. The mobile phase was consisted of water and methanol containing 0.1% trifluoroacetic acid. UV wavelength was set at 230, 254, 280, and 300 nm. Validation of the analytical method was evaluated by linearity, precision, and accuracy test. Calibration curve for eight marker compounds showed good linearity with R(2) > 0.9994. Limits of detection and Limits of quantification ranged from 0.01 ?g/mL to 0.13 ?g/mL and 0.03 ?g/mL to 0.41 ?g/mL, respectively. The relative standard deviations (RSDs) value of precision test, intra-day and inter-day test, was less than 1.14% and 2.54%, respectively. The results of accuracy test were varied from 98.31% to 104.88% with RSD < 2%. This developed simultaneous determination method was efficient to the quality control of Sipjundaebo-tang.

Multiple Walkers in the Wang-Landau Algorithm  

SciTech Connect

The mean cost for converging an estimated density of states using the Wang-Landau algorithm is measured for the Ising and Heisenberg models. The cost increases in a power-law fashion with the number of spins, with an exponent near 3 for one-dimensional models, and closer to 2.4 for two-dimensional models. The effect of multiple, simultaneous walkers on the cost is also measured. For the one-dimensional Ising model the cost can increase with the number of walkers for large systems. For both the Ising and Heisenberg models in two-dimensions, no adverse impact on the cost is observed. Thus multiple walkers is a strategy that should scale well in a parallel computing environment for many models of magnetic materials.

Scalable replica-exchange framework for Wang Landau sampling  

SciTech Connect

We investigate a generic, parallel replica-exchange framework for Monte Carlo simulations based on the Wang Landau method. To demonstrate its advantages and general applicability for massively parallel simulations of complex systems, we apply it to lattice spin models, the self-assembly process in amphiphilic solutions, and the adsorption of molecules on surfaces. While of general, current interest, the latter phenomena are challenging to study computationally because of multiple structural transitions occurring over a broad temperature range. We show how the parallel framework facilitates simulations of such processes and, without any loss of accuracy or precision, gives a significant speedup and allows for the study of much larger systems and much wider temperature ranges than possible with single-walker methods.

Thermodynamics of RNA structures by WangLandau sampling  

PubMed Central

Motivation: Thermodynamics-based dynamic programming RNA secondary structure algorithms have been of immense importance in molecular biology, where applications range from the detection of novel selenoproteins using expressed sequence tag (EST) data, to the determination of microRNA genes and their targets. Dynamic programming algorithms have been developed to compute the minimum free energy secondary structure and partition function of a given RNA sequence, the minimum free-energy and partition function for the hybridization of two RNA molecules, etc. However, the applicability of dynamic programming methods depends on disallowing certain types of interactions (pseudoknots, zig-zags, etc.), as their inclusion renders structure prediction an nondeterministic polynomial time (NP)-complete problem. Nevertheless, such interactions have been observed in X-ray structures. Results: A non-Boltzmannian Monte Carlo algorithm was designed by Wang and Landau to estimate the density of states for complex systems, such as the Ising model, that exhibit a phase transition. In this article, we apply the Wang-Landau (WL) method to compute the density of states for secondary structures of a given RNA sequence, and for hybridizations of two RNA sequences. Our method is shown to be much faster than existent software, such as RNAsubopt. From density of states, we compute the partition function over all secondary structures and over all pseudoknot-free hybridizations. The advantage of the WL method is that by adding a function to evaluate the free energy of arbitary pseudoknotted structures and of arbitrary hybridizations, we can estimate thermodynamic parameters for situations known to be NP-complete. This extension to pseudoknots will be made in the sequel to this article; in contrast, the current article describes the WL algorithm applied to pseudoknot-free secondary structures and hybridizations.

Effects of Sheng Hua Tang on Uterine Involution and Ovarian Activity in Postpartum Dairy Cows  

PubMed Central

The effects of Sheng Hua Tang (SHT) on uterine involution and ovarian activity were investigated in postpartum dairy cows. SHT (70 g) was given to dairy cows (n = 10) to evaluate its effects for five days from the first postpartum day. Postpartum cows fed with a basal diet without SHT were used as the control group (n = 10). Ultrasounds and blood tests were recorded for four weeks from postpartum day seven with a 3-d interval. The results showed that the areas and diameters of endometria were significantly (p<0.01) reduced in the group that received SHT compared to the control group on the seventh postpartum day. The group that received SHT had an intrauterine fluid volume mean of 1.20.6 cm3, which was significantly lower than that of the control group, 2.30.8 cm3 (p<0.01) on the 13th postpartum day. In addition, the uterine tension score was a mean of 1.00.0 in the group that received SHT, which was also significantly lower than that of the control group, 1.50.5 (p<0.01) on the 19th postpartum day. Taken together, the Chinese herbal medicine remedy, SHT, promoted uterine involution and ovarian activity in postpartum dairy cows. PMID:25049906

Inhibition of monocarboxylate transporter-mediated absorption of valproic acid by Gegen-Qinlian-Tang.  

PubMed

Valproic acid (VPA), an anti-epileptic drug with a narrow therapeutic index, is a substrate of the monocarboxylate transporter (MCT). In this study, we investigated the effect of Gegen-Qinlian-Tang (GQT), a Chinese Medicine prescription containing Puerariae Radix (PR), Scutellariae Radix (SR), Coptidis Rhizoma (CR) and Glycyrrhizae Radix (GR), on the pharmacokinetics of VPA, as a probe drug of MCT, in rats and the underlying mechanism. Sprague-Dawley rats were orally administered VPA with and without GQT in crossover design. The serum concentrations of VPA were determined by a fluorescence polarization immunoassay. The results showed that coadministration with 2.0 and 4.0 g/kg of GQT remarkably decreased the Cmax of VPA by 72% and 74% and reduced the AUC 0-t by 63% and 53%, respectively. The mechanism study using Caco-2 cells revealed that the uptake function of MCT was inhibited by GQT and each component herb. In conclusion, the MCT-mediated absorption of VPA was significantly decreased by GQT and its component herbs. PMID:23548126

Coptidis rhizome and Si Jun Zi Tang can prevent Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium infection in mice.  

PubMed

Salmonella, a common zoonotic pathogen, causes gastroenteritis in both humans and animals. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been used to improve gastrointestinal dysfunction and to modify the immune response to inflammation for centuries. This study used six herbal plants and four TCM formulae to rate their efficacy in preventing S. Typhimurium infection via mouse model. Minimum bactericidal concentration (MBC) of Coptidis rhizome (CR) against the reference strain tallied 12.5 mg/ml and against clinical isolate ST21 was 25 mg/ml. MBCs of other herbal extracts and formulae on Salmonella Typhimurium strains were above 50 mg/ml. In the mice model, CR and Si Jun Zi Tang (SJZT) could significantly decrease the bacterial load in organs and blood after being challenged, along with body weight loss due to the infection. CR and SJZT alleviated infection-induced interferon-gamma levels in the serum and tissues, and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-?) levels in intestinal tissues. CR and SJZT serum metabolites could suppress S. Typhimurium invasion and TNF-? expression in RAW264.7 cells. The therapeutic activity of CR and SJZT may involve berberine, ginsenoside Rb1, and glycyrrhizin, interfering with Salmonella when invading macrophages. CR and SJZT has shown potential in preventing S. Typhimurium infection through the regulation of the immune response. PMID:25133542

A simple and reliable high-performance liquid chromatographic method with ultraviolet detection (280 nm) has been developed for the simultaneous analysis of 12 bioactive components in San-huang-xie-xin-tang (SHXXT), a traditional Chinese medicine containing Rhei rhizome, Coptidis rhizome and Scutellariae radix. A relatively simple extraction procedure was employed and optimised, and separation of the components was obtained within 1 h using a reversed-phase column under gradient elution with acetonitrile and a buffer containing 0.01 M sodium 1-pentanesulphonate (pH 3). The lower limit of detection for the analytes ranged from 25 to 75 ng/mL. The correlation coefficients associated with each calibration curve were greater than 0.99. The precision and accuracy of the method ranged from 1.0 to 10.5% at low concentration levels, 0.8 to 8.7% at medium levels and 1.2 to 5.8% at high levels. In commercial products of SHXXT, baicalin and berberine were present in the highest amounts with levels up to 4.0 and 3.3%, respectively, in one sample. The HPLC method was able rapidly and efficiently to analyse constituents in crude herb and traditional Chinese medicinal preparations containing Rhei rhizome, Coptidis rhizome and Scutellariae radix.

Fermented soshiho-tang with Lactobacillus plantarum enhances the antiproliferative activity in vascular smooth muscle cell  

PubMed Central

Background Soshiho-tang (SST) is a traditional medicine widely used for the treatment of chronic hepatitis. SST has been shown to confer a variety of pharmacological activities, including prevention of hepatotoxicity, promotion of liver regeneration, and modulation of liver fibrosis. In this study, we investigated the antiproliferative activity of native and fermented (FSST) formulations of SST in vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) and examined the potential underlying mechanisms driving these effects. Methods SST, along with preparations fermented with Lactobacillus plantarum KFRI-144 (S-A144), L. amylophilus KFRI-161 (S-A161) and L. bulgaricus KFRI-344 (S-A344), were investigated to determine their effects on the proliferation and viability of VSMCs, along with the signalling pathways underlying these effects. Results S-A144 exhibited a strong, dose-dependent inhibition of VSMC proliferation relative to untreated controls, but the others did not affect. In addition, S-A144 significantly decreased the phosphorylation of Akt and PLC?1 in a dose-dependent manner and induced cell cycle arrest at the G0/G1 phase characterised by decreased expression of CDKs, cyclins and PCNA. Conclusions The findings suggest that S-A144 exhibit enhanced inhibition of PDGF-BB-induced VSMC proliferation comparison to S-AOR through the suppression of cell cycle progression and expression of cell cycle-related proteins, along with the downregulation of Akt phosphorylation.

Geochemistry and environmental assessment of major and trace elements in the surface sediments of the Wei River, China.  

PubMed

The development of western China in the past decade has led to increased discharges of wastewater and river pollution. The Wei River is the largest tributary of the Huang He River, but its geochemistry has not been thoroughly investigated. Sixty-three bed-surface sediment samples were collected from the Wei and analyzed for 24 elements by WDXRF; objectives for the study were to investigate the geochemical properties of the sediments; identify sources, and assess pollution levels and environmental risks. Major and trace element concentrations were comparable with those in other large rivers in China, but potentially hazardous trace elements (PHTEs) were lower than in the Yangzi or Pearl Rivers; most likely due to dilution of contaminants by the large sand inflows into the Wei and a lower level of industrialization. Nonetheless, pollution and risk analyses demonstrate slight contamination of Cr, Mn, Nb, Ni and Zn, moderate contamination of Cu and Pb, and strong contamination of As at some locations. Adverse biological effects from Ni and Cu are possible and are likely from As. Statistical and spatial analyses indicate that agriculture runoff and industrial wastewater discharge contribute to the contamination of this river. A comprehensive environmental management strategy, realistic national standards for wastewater discharge, and rigid enforcement are needed to address river pollution in China. PMID:22964718

Mutagenicity, carcinogenicity, and human cancer risk from indoor exposure to coal and wood combustion in xuan wei, china  

SciTech Connect

The residents in Xuan Wei County, China, have been exposed to high levels of combustion emissions from smoky and smokeless coal and wood combustion under unvented conditions in homes. An unusually high lung cancer mortality rate that can not be attributed to tobacco smoke or occupational exposure was found. The communes using smoky coal, which emits more organics than smokeless coal, generally have a higher lung cancer rate than the communes using smokeless coal or wood. The mutagenicity and carcinogenicity of organic extracts of indoor air particles collected from Xuan Wei homes during cooking were investigated. The objectives of the study were (1) to investigate the characteristics of lung cancer mortality in Xuan Wei, (2) to determine the genotoxicity and chemical and physical properties of the combustion emissions, and (3) to link bioassay results to human lung cancer data. The organic extracts of these emission particles were tested for mutagenicity in the Ames Salmonella and the L5178Y TK+/- mouse lymphoma assays and for skin tumor-initiating activity and complete carcinogenicity in SENCAR mice. The two coal samples showed higher activity in both mutagenicity and tumor initiation. When the emission rate of organics was taken into consideration, the smoky coal emission showed the highest potency of the three fuels. The smoky coal sample was also a more potent complete carcinogen than the wood sample. Higher mutagenicity and carcinogenicity of the smoky coal emission compared to wood or smokeless coal emissions are in agreement with the epidemiological data.

Applications of the Wei-Lachin Multivariate One-Sided Test for Multiple Outcomes on Possibly Different Scales  

PubMed Central

Many studies aim to assess whether a therapy has a beneficial effect on multiple outcomes simultaneously relative to a control. Often the joint null hypothesis of no difference for the set of outcomes is tested using separate tests with a correction for multiple tests, or using a multivariate T2-like MANOVA or global test. However, a more powerful test in this case is a multivariate one-sided or one-directional test directed at detecting a simultaneous beneficial treatment effect on each outcome, though not necessarily of the same magnitude. The Wei-Lachin test is a simple 1 df test obtained from a simple sum of the component statistics that was originally described in the context of a multivariate rank analysis. Under mild conditions this test provides a maximin efficient test of the null hypothesis of no difference between treatment groups for all outcomes versus the alternative hypothesis that the experimental treatment is better than control for some or all of the component outcomes, and not worse for any. Herein applications are described to a simultaneous test for multiple differences in means, proportions or life-times, and combinations thereof, all on potentially different scales. The evaluation of sample size and power for such analyses is also described. For a test of means of two outcomes with a common unit variance and correlation 0.5, the sample size needed to provide 90% power for two separate one-sided tests at the 0.025 level is 64% greater than that needed for the single Wei-Lachin multivariate one-directional test at the 0.05 level. Thus, a Wei-Lachin test with these operating characteristics is 39% more efficient than two separate tests. Likewise, compared to a T2-like omnibus test on 2 df, the Wei-Lachin test is 32% more efficient. An example is provided in which the Wei-Lachin test of multiple components has superior power to a test of a composite outcome. PMID:25329662

PubMed

A new method using single reflection Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy was proposed for direct and fast determination of Corydalis yanhusuo W. T. Wang of traditional Chinese herbal medicines and its confusable varieties. Data were collected directly for Fourier transform infrared spectra with OMNI sampler. Then through converting FTIR spectra of the samples into second derivative spectra by derivative spectra software, it is possible to identify Corydalis yanhusuo W. T. Wang from the confusable varieties with statistics. The result shows that the second derivative FTIR of Corydalis yanhusuo W. T. Wang and its confusable varieties are different in the 2 050-650 cm(-1) range. The probability is less than 0.01 and the result is significant. Corydalis yanhnsuo W. T.

Wang-Landau simulation of the 2D Ising Model in Zero Field Model  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

The Wang-Landau algorithm, also called the flat-histogram algorithm, can be used to calculate the density of states of a microscopic system. In this simulation, the Wang-Landau algorithm is used to calculate the density of states for a two-dimensional Ising ferromagnet with periodic boundary conditions. From the density of states, the entropy, internal energy, and heat capacity are calculated as a function of temperature. You can modify this simulation if you have EJS installed by right-clicking within a plot and selecting "Open Ejs Model" from the pop-up menu item. The Wang-Landau simulation of the 2D Ising Model in Zero Field Model was developed using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the ejs_WangLandau_Ising_2D_Ferromagnet.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.

A new paradigm for petascale Monte Carlo simulation: Replica exchange Wang-Landau sampling  

E-print Network

We introduce a generic, parallel Wang-Landau method that is naturally suited to implementation on massively parallel, petaflop supercomputers. The approach introduces a replica-exchange framework in which densities of states for overlapping sub-windows in energy space are determined iteratively by traditional Wang-Landau sampling. The advantages and general applicability of the method are demonstrated for several distinct systems that possess discrete or continuous degrees of freedom, including those with complex free energy landscapes and topological constraints.

Quantitative assessment of traditional Oriental herbal formulation Samhwangsasim-tang using UPLC technique.  

PubMed

A specific and reliable ultra-performance liquid chromatography-diode array detection method has been developed and validated for the quantitative assessment of a traditional Oriental herbal formulation, Samhwangsasim-tang (SST). A Halo reversed-phase amide column (2.7 m, 4.6 150 mm) was used to separate marker compounds; detection was conducted by ultraviolet absorbance at 250 nm. The column temperature was maintained at 45C. A mobile phase consisting of acetonitrile (A) and 0.1% trifluoroacetic acid in water (B) was found to be suitable for the separation, at a flow rate of 1.8 mL/min with gradient elution. Linearity, specificity, precision and recovery were calculated to validate the method and instrumentation. Under the described conditions, all marker compounds (rhaponticin, berberine, palmatine, baicalin, baicalein and wogonin) were collected within 25 min. All calibration curves of components showed good linearity (correlation coefficient > 0.9996). The limit of detection and limit of quantification ranged from 0.08-3.05 and 0.23-8.12 g/mL, respectively. The relative standard deviation (RSD) and repeatability values of intra-day and inter-day precision were less than 2.30, 2.99 and 1.82%, respectively. In the recovery test, the accuracy ranged from 97.56-103.30% with RSD values less than 2.63%. The developed method was simple, specific, sensitive, accurate, precise and reproducible for the quantification of the active chemical constituents of SST. The simultaneous analysis of the contents of marker compounds in different SST samples prepared by different extraction procedures and different commercial products was successfully evaluated.

Hwangryun-Haedok-Tang Fermented with Lactobacillus casei Suppresses Ovariectomy-Induced Bone Loss  

PubMed Central

Hwangryun-haedok-tang (HRT) is the common recipe in traditional Asian medicine, and microbial fermentation is used for the conventional methods for processing traditional medicine. We investigated the inhibitory effect of the n-butanol fraction of HRT (HRT-BU) and fHRT (fHRT-BU) on the RANKL-induced osteoclastogenesis in bone-marrow-derived macrophages. mRNA expression of osteoclastogenesis-related genes were evaluated by real-time QPCR. The activation of signaling pathways was determined by western blot analysis. The marker compounds of HRT-BU and fHRT-BU were analyzed by HPLC. The inhibitory effect of HRT or fHRT on ovariectomy-induced bone loss were evaluated using OVX rats with orally administered HRT, fHRT (300, 1000?mg/kg), or its vehicle for 12 weeks. fHRT-BU significantly inhibited RANKL-induced osteoclastogenesis, and phosphorylation of p38, IKK?/?, and NF-?Bp65 compared to HRT-BU. In addition, fHRT-BU also significantly inhibited the mRNA expression of Nf?b2, TNF-?, NFATc1, TRAP, ATPv0d2, and cathepsin K. Furthermore, administration of fHRT had a greater effect on the increase of BMD, and greater improved bone microstructure of the femora than that of HRT in ovariectomy rats. This study demonstrated that bacterial fermentation enhances the inhibitory effect of HRT on osteoclastogenesis and bone loss. These results suggest that fermented HRT might have the beneficial effects on bone disease by inhibiting osteoclastogenesis. PMID:23082080

San-Huang-Xie-Xin-Tang reduces lipopolysaccharides-induced hypotension and inflammatory mediators.  

PubMed

San-Huang-Xie-Xin-Tang (SHXT) is a traditional Chinese medicinal formula containing Coptidis rhizoma, Scutellariae radix and Rhei rhizoma. The present study aimed to determine the preventive effects of standardized SHXT on lipopolysaccharides (LPS)-induced arterial hypotension, protein expression of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), cytokines formation and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) production. LPS-induced activation of iNOS has been recognized to increase cytokines and nitric oxide, some of them play predominant roles in sepsis. Intravenous injection of LPS (10 mg/kg) caused a marked decrease of the mean arterial pressure in normotensive rats. However, the LPS-induced arterial hypotension was inhibited by SHXT (0.01 and 0.03 g/kg), when it was given 30 min before LPS. Moreover, plasma level of cytokines and PGE2 were lowered by SHXT. In RAW 264.7 cells, SHXT (20-200 microg/ml) dose-dependently inhibited LPS (1 microg/ml)-induced iNOS and COX-2 expression, and it also significantly decreased LPS-induced cytokines in a dose-dependent manner. In conclusion, our data suggest that SHXT prevented LPS-induced arterial hypotension, which might be mediated through its inhibition activities on the expression of iNOS and COX-2, cytokines formation and PGE2 production. Therefore, its protection activity against LPS-induced arterial hypotension and inflammatory mediators release might be beneficial in the treatment of endotoxin shock and/or associated inflammation.

Applying the Wang-Landau Algorithm to Lattice Gauge Theory  

E-print Network

We implement the Wang-Landau algorithm in the context of SU(N) lattice gauge theories. We study the quenched, reduced version of the lattice theory and calculate its density of states for N=20,30,40,50. We introduce a variant of the original algorithm in which the weight function used in the update does not asymptote to a fixed function, but rather continues to have small fluctuations which enhance tunneling. We formulate a method to evaluate the errors in the density of states, and use the result to calculate the dependence of the average action density and the specific heat on the `t Hooft coupling lambda. This allows us to locate the coupling lambda_t at which a strongly first order transition occurs in the system. For N=20 and 30 we compare our results to those obtained using Ferrenberg-Swendsen multi-histogram reweighting and find agreement with errors of 0.2 % or less. Extrapolating our results to N=oo we find 1/lambda_t = 0.3148(2). We remark on the significance of this result for the validity of quenched large-$N$ reduction of SU(N) lattice gauge theories.

Effects of age, size, and density on natural survival for an important coral reef fishery species, yellow tang, Zebrasoma flavescens  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Hundreds of thousands of juvenile yellow tang, Zebrasoma flavescens, are caught each year in the state of Hawaii (USA) for the live aquarium trade. As part of an extensive adaptive management strategy built around a network of protected areas, an emphasis was placed on understanding this important species life history. Multiple capture-mark-recapture techniques and a model selection approach to data analysis in Program MARK were used to estimate the effects of individual age and conspecific density on natural per-capita daily survival probabilities of yellow tang recruits (recently settled individuals, 30-50 mm total length) and the effects of body size and site on natural per-capita monthly survival probabilities for juveniles (58-127 mm total length). The models of recruit survival that included additive effects of density and age were best supported by the data and indicated an increase of survival with age and decrease of survival with increased conspecific density. At 1 day post-settlement, the model averaged daily per-capita survival probability ranged from 0.963 (95% CI: 0.932-0.981) at a low density of 0.1 recruits m-2 to 0.848 (95% CI: 0.752-0.911) at a high density of 1.3 recruits m-2. The best supported model of juvenile survival had no effect of fish length or site, with a constant monthly per-capita survival of 0.939 (95% CI: 0.925-0.950). Only about 1% of recruits may survive to adulthood when protected from fishing. These results can be used to better analyze and interpret data from protected area monitoring surveys and refine management practices. Continued long-term monitoring, combined with targeted life history studies and demographic modeling, is needed to further investigate the population level effects of fishing yellow tang juveniles.

Banhabaekchulchunma-tang, a traditional herbal formula attenuates absolute ethanol-induced gastric injury by enhancing the antioxidant status  

PubMed Central

Background Banhabaekchulchunma-tang (hange-byakujutsu-tenma-to in Japanese and banxia-baizhu-tianma-tang in Chinese) is a mixture of fourteen herbs. It is used traditionally for the treatment of anemia, anorexia, general weakness, and female infertility in China, Japan, and Korea. In this study, we investigated the protective effects of a Banhabaekchulchunma-tang water extract (BCT) against ethanol-induced acute gastric injury in rats. Methods Gastric injury was induced by intragastric administration of 5mL/kg body weight of absolute ethanol to each rat. The positive control group and the BCT group were given oral doses of omeprazole (50mg/kg) or BCT (400mg/kg), respectively, 2h prior to the administration of absolute ethanol. The stomach of each animal was excised and examined for gastric mucosal lesions. To confirm the protective effects of BCT, we evaluated the degree of lipid peroxidation, the level of reduced glutathione (GSH), and the activities of the antioxidant enzymes catalase, glutathione-S-transferase, glutathione peroxidase, and glutathione reductase in the stomach. In addition, we conducted an acute toxicity study to evaluate the safety of BCT according to OECD guideline. Results BCT reduced ethanol-induced hemorrhage, hyperemia, and loss of epithelial cell in the gastric mucosa. BCT reduced the increased lipid peroxidation associated with ethanol-induced acute gastric lesions, and increased the mucosal GSH content and the activities of antioxidant enzymes. In addition, BCT did not cause any adverse effects at up to 5000mg/kg. Conclusions These results indicate that BCT protects the gastric mucosa against ethanol-induced gastric injury by increasing the antioxidant status. We suggest that BCT could be developed as an effective drug for the treatment of gastric injury caused by alcohol intake. PMID:23844748

Non-clinical safety assessment of Hwangryunhaedok-tang: 13-week toxicity in Crl:CD Sprague Dawley rats.  

PubMed

Hwangryunhaedok-tang (Huang-Lian-Jie-Du-Tang in Chinese, Oren-gedoku-to in Japanese) is a traditional herbal medicine with a long history of use for anti-inflammatory purposes. In this study, subchronic toxicity of daily oral administration of a Hwangryunhaedok-tang water extract (HHT) at 0, 250, 750, and 2000mg/kg for 13weeks was examined in rats. Mortality, clinical signs, and changes in body weight, food consumption, clinical signs, ophthalmological examination, urinalysis, hematology, serum biochemistry, gross observation, organ weight, and histopathology were monitored in accordance with Good Laboratory Practice and OECD guidelines. We found no mortality or abnormality in clinical signs, body weight, serum biochemistry, or organ weight in HHT-treated groups in either sex. However, there were significant changes in glucose, bilirubin, urobilinogen, protein (only male) in urine after 2000mg/kg/day HHT treatment for both sexes. In hematological examinations, we found a significant decreased number of red blood cells (RBC), whereas, an increased the mean corpuscular volume, number of platelets, and rate of reticulocyte (RET) after 2000mg/kg/day HHT treatment of male rats. In male and female rats, 750 and 2000mg/kg/day HHT treatment decreased the number of RBC and increased RET. Histopathological examinations revealed stomach mucosal erosion in female rats (2000mg/kg/day). No-observed-adverse-effect levels were established for 750mg/kg HHT in rats under the conditions of this study. However, other toxicological studies are necessary to evaluate the safety of HHT fully.

Effect of Bu-zhong-yi-qi-tang on seminal plasma cytokine levels in patients with idiopathic male infertility.  

PubMed

Twenty-two idiopathic infertile patients were treated with Oriental herbal medicine, Bu-zhong-yi-qi-tang (Hochu-ekki-to). Seminal plasma sFas level elevated significantly after herb administration. There was an inverse correlation between seminal plasma IL-6 level and sperm concentration before treatment. After the administration of herb seminal plasma, sFas levels significantly correlated with sperm concentration. Seminal plasma IL-8 level did not change. Certain kinds of cytokine in the seminal plasma might play some role in improving semen quality with treatment. PMID:14660164

Changes of Peripheral Blood Lymphocyte Subtypes in Patients with End Stage Cancer Administered Localized Radiotherapy and Bojungikki-Tang  

PubMed Central

Localized radiotherapy (RT) can cause immune dysfunction. Bojungikki-tang is known to restore immune function. We investigated the absolute counts and percentages of peripheral blood (PB) lymphocyte subtypes in end stage cancer patients before and after RT and after oral administration of Bojungikki-tang water extract (BJITE) and to evaluate the changes mediated by RT and BJITE. Absolute counts and percentages of lymphocyte and lymphocyte subsets were determined in whole blood using the TetraONE System (Beckman Coulter, USA). Flow cytometry results were compared before and after RT and after administration of BJITE. Absolute numbers of CD3+, CD4+, and CD8+ T cells and CD19+ B cells decreased significantly after RT (P < 0.05). Absolute numbers of CD3-CD56+ cells did not change in both groups. No significant differences were observed in the absolute counts of lymphocyte subtypes before and after administration of BJITE or vitamin group. When BJITE group was compared with vitamin group, absolute numbers of CD19+ B cells increased. RT-induced decrease in T cells and B cells in PB suggests that immune deterioration occurs after RT. Administration of BJITE might be effective in the restoration of number of B cells. PMID:24696700

Yukmijihwang-tang derivatives enhance cognitive processing in normal young adults: a double-blinded, placebo-controlled trial.  

PubMed

Yukmijihwang-tang (YMJ), also known as Luweidihuang-tang in China, has been widely used as a general herbal tonic for hundreds of years in many Asian countries. This study examines whether YMJ derivatives (YMJd) enhance cognitive ability in normal human subjects and discusses its potential as treatment for dementia patients with deficient cognitive ability. Subjects were divided into two groups, the placebo-treated group (n = 15) and the YMJd-treated group (n = 20). K-WAIS tests, a Korean version of an individual intelligence quotient (IQ) test, and a P300 latency assessment of event-related potential (ERP) were conducted in order to measure changes in cognitive ability before and after 6 weeks of YMJd treatment. The K-WAIS mean scores of the group treated with YMJd were significantly higher than those of the placebo group (p < 0.05), and their mean P300 latency was substantially shorter (p < 0.005). These results suggest that YMJd treatment accelerates the speed of information processing and enhances cognitive ability. YMJd treatment may help dementia patients or the elderly recover from cognition deficiencies or degeneration in clinic. PMID:15844838

Indoor air exposure to coal and wood combustion emissions associated with a high lung cancer rate in Xuan Wei, China  

SciTech Connect

Residents of Xuan Wei County in China have unusually high lung cancer mortality that cannot be attributed to tobacco use or occupational exposure. They are exposed to smoke from unvented, open pit coal or wood fires (often used for cooking and heating). The variation in lung cancer rates among communes within the county suggests that indoor combustion of smoky coal may be the prime determinant of lung cancer. To characterize the air in Xuan Wei homes, samples of air particles and semivolatile organic compounds were collected from homes located in two communes; one commune has a high rate of lung cancer, and the other has a low rate. Samples collected in the commune where the lung cancer rate is high and where smoky coal is the predominant fuel contained high concentrations of small particles with high organic content; organic extracts of these samples were mutagenic. Samples from homes in the wood-burning commune, which has a low rate of lung cancer, consisted mostly of larger particles of lower organic content and mutagenicity. The smoky coal sample was a mouse skin carcinogen and was a more potent initiator of skin tumors in comparison to the wood or smokeless coal sample.

Quantitative contribution of climate change and human activities to runoff changes in the Wei River basin, China  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Surface runoff from the Wei River basin, the largest tributary of the Yellow River in China, has dramatically decreased over last 51 years from 1958 to 2008. Climate change and human activities have been identified as the two main reasons for the decrease in runoff. The study period is split into two sub-periods (1958-1989 and 1990-2008) using the Mann-Kendall jump test. This study develops an improved climate elasticity method based on the original climate elasticity method, and conducts a quantitative assessment of the impact of climate change and human activities on the runoff decrease in the Wei River basin. The results from the original climate elasticity method show that climatic impacts contribute 37-40% to the decrease in runoff, while human impacts contribute 60-63%. In contrast, the results from the improved climate elasticity method yield a climatic contribution to runoff decrease of 22-29% and a human contribution of 71-78%. A discussion of the simulation reliability and uncertainty concludes that the improved climate elasticity method has a better mechanism and can provide more reasonable results.

Wang-Landau/Multibondic Cluster Simulations for Second-Order Phase Transitions  

E-print Network

For a second-order phase transition the critical energy range of interest is larger than the energy range covered by a canonical Monte Carlo simulation at the critical temperature. Such an extended energy range can be covered by performing a Wang-Landau recursion for the spectral density followed by a multicanonical simulation with fixed weights. But in the conventional approach one loses the advantage due to cluster algorithms. A cluster version of the Wang-Landau recursion together with a subsequent multibondic simulation improves for 2D and 3D Ising models the efficiency of the conventional Wang-Landau/multicanonical approach by power laws in the lattice size. In our simulations real gains in CPU time reach two orders of magnitude.

Interface tension of the 3d 4-state Potts model using the Wang-Landau algorithm  

E-print Network

We study the interface tension of the 4-state Potts model in three dimensions using the Wang- Landau algorithm. The interface tension is given by the ratio of the partition function with a twisted boundary condition in one direction and periodic boundary conditions in all other directions over the partition function with periodic boundary conditions in all directions. With the Wang-Landau algorithm we can explicitly calculate both partition functions and obtain the result for all temperatures. We find solid numerical evidence for perfect wetting. Our algorithm is tested by calculating thermodynamic quantities at the phase transition point.

Wang-Landau Monte Carlo simulation of isotropic-nematic transition in liquid crystals  

E-print Network

Wang and Landau proposed recently, a simple and flexible non-Boltzmann Monte Carlo method for estimating the density of states, from which the macroscopic properties of a closed system can be calculated. They demonstrated their algorithm by cocontinuous energy spectrum. We propose in this paper modifications nsidering systems with discrete energy spectrum. We find that the Wang-Landau algorithm does not perform well when the system has continuous energy spectrum. We propose in this paper modifications to the algorithm and demonstrate their performance on a lattice model of liquid crystalline system (with Lebwohl-Lasher interaction having continuously varying energy), exhibiting transition from high temperature isotropic to low temperature nematic phase.

Subacute toxicity and stability of Soshiho-tang, a traditional herbal formula, in Sprague-Dawley rats  

PubMed Central

Backgroud Soshiho-tang (SST, Xiao-chai-hu-tang in Chinese and Sho-saiko-to in Japanese), an oriental herbal formula, is used for treatment of chronic liver diseases. Although many researchers have studied the pharmacological properties of SST, information about its safety and toxicity is limited. Therefore, we evaluated the potential safety of SST in SpragueDawley rats over a period of 4-weeks. Methods The SST was administered once daily by gavage to male and female rats at doses of 0, 500, 1000 and 2000 mg/kg/day for 4 weeks. We measured the body weight, mortality, food consumption, ophthalmoscopy, urinalysis, hematology, serum biochemistry, gross pathological findings, absolute/relative organ weights and histopathology. In addition, we analyzed the component of SST and measured the stability of its component in SST according to study periods using high performance liquid chromatography. Results The SST treatment did not result in any toxicologically significant changes in mortality, food consumption, ophthalmoscopy, urinalysis, hematology, serum biochemistry, gross pathological findings, absolute/relative organ weights and histopathology, except for salivation and reduction in body weight in the 2000 mg/kg/day male group. These findings in the 2000 mg/kg/day male group are considered toxicologically insignificant because they are not accompanied by other pathological findings, including in hematology, serum biochemistry and histopatholgy, and they do not exhibit a doseresponse relationship. SST is detected three components including liquiritin, baicalin, and glycyrrhizin. In addition, there were not observed the significant differences among the contents of three components in SST according to storage periods. Conclusion These results indicate that SST may be a safe material. Based on these results, the no-observed-adverse-effect level was more than 2000 mg/kg for both genders. PMID:23268740

Shape Variation in Aterian Tanged Tools and the Origins of Projectile Technology: A Morphometric Perspective on Stone Tool Function  

PubMed Central

Background Recent findings suggest that the North African Middle Stone Age technocomplex known as the Aterian is both much older than previously assumed, and certainly associated with fossils exhibiting anatomically modern human morphology and behavior. The Aterian is defined by the presence of tanged or stemmed tools, which have been widely assumed to be among the earliest projectile weapon tips. The present study systematically investigates morphological variation in a large sample of Aterian tools to test the hypothesis that these tools were hafted and/or used as projectile weapons. Methodology/Principal Findings Both classical morphometrics and Elliptical Fourier Analysis of tool outlines are used to show that the shape variation in the sample exhibits size-dependent patterns consistent with a reduction of the tools from the tip down, with the tang remaining intact. Additionally, the process of reduction led to increasing side-to-side asymmetries as the tools got smaller. Finally, a comparison of shape-change trajectories between Aterian tools and Late Paleolithic arrowheads from the North German site of Stellmoor reveal significant differences in terms of the amount and location of the variation. Conclusions/Significance The patterns of size-dependent shape variation strongly support the functional hypothesis of Aterian tools as hafted knives or scrapers with alternating active edges, rather than as weapon tips. Nevertheless, the same morphological patterns are interpreted as one of the earliest evidences for a hafting modification, and for the successful combination of different raw materials (haft and stone tip) into one implement, in itself an important achievement in the evolution of hominin technologies.

Regional Air Quality Studies Using MOPITT CO Data : A Case Study of Linfen City and the Wei River Valley in China  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

MOPITT measures atmospheric CO using thermal channel at 4.7 ?m and as such is mostly sensitive to the middle and the upper troposphere. However a recent assessment of the MOPITT averaging kernels after normalizing for non-uniform grid effects indicates that over land areas with sparse vegetation during daytime, MOPITT may have sensitivity to CO in the boundary layer. Thus it may be possible to use the MOPITT data for regional air quality studies. In particular, China with its strong emission sources and varying topography makes for an interesting area to test this. We present a case study over the Wei river valley in northern China. Linfen, ranked consistently as one of the most polluted cities globally, is located on the east bank of Fen river north east of the Wei river valley. We find that a strong CO plume associated with Linfen is clearly delineated in monthly average maps of CO mixing ratio at 850 hPa for all months when data are available. High CO mixing ratios often exceeding 300 ppbv at 850 hPa are observed near Linfen and are likely resulting from the coal based industries in the city. Further, regionally enhanced CO aligned with the Wei river valley suggests topographic effects. These features seen in MOPITT CO data are correlated with corresponding signatures of Linfen city and the Wei river valley in SCIAMACHY NO2 tropospheric column data, which indicates that MOPITT low altitude retrievals are capturing the source regions. Seasonal variation of CO and NO2 around Linfen city, as seen in the satellite data will be discussed. The topographic signature along the Wei river valley can also be seen in other datasets like Aura OMI NO2 tropospheric column and MODIS aerosol optical depth.

Study on the effect of Jia-Wei-Xiao-Yao-San decoction on patients with functional dyspepsia.  

PubMed

The effect of Jia-Wei-Xiao-Yao-San (JWXYS) decoction on patients with functional dyspepsia was studied by means of electrogastrography (EGG) and symptoms of dyspepsia were assessed. Twenty patients with functional dyspepsia were selected; before and after internal treatment with JWXYS, the integrated symptoms of the patients were down-regulated from 18.55 +/- 3.24 (before treatment) to 11.65 +/- 2.37 (after treatment) (p < 0.01); electrogastrography showed that all the EGG parameters of the patients were outside the normal range. After treatment with JWXYS, all these indices improved before and after dinner. The results showed that the JWXYS decoction could not only improve the symptoms, but also adjust the abnormal gastric motility and gastric myoelectrical activity of patients with functional dyspepsia.

[Exploration on the application of Radix Salviae Miltiorrhiza in the Han-Tang Dynasties and ponderation on the difference of its recognition between ancient and modern ages].  

PubMed

During the Han-Tang Dynasties, prescriptions containing Radix Salviae Miltiorrhiza were mainly applied for treating itching, sores, woman's diseases before and after delivery, pediatrical cold and fever diseases, convulsion, bi-syndrome in the lumbar region and lower extremities, abdominal distension and rumbling, and loss of appetite. There was a gap of difference between these indications and those of the modern age. By analyzing these differences on a social and academic background, it is claimed that the difference might be due to the disease spectrum, development of medical academy at different levels, and the way of thinking in medicinal application. Aside from the elimination of individual indication no longer extant due to its inferior clinical recognition, most indications appeared in the Han-Tang Dynasties are convincing. This is worthy of attention in clinical and academic research works. PMID:24524633
