Dried salted plum consumption ameliorates hyperbaric oxygen therapy-induced otalgia severity at the first chamber session: a prospective randomized controlled study.

Fan-Chun Meng, Chih-Hao Shen, Di Wu, Chi-Ming Chu, Cheng-Ping Shih, Hung-Che Lin, Chung-Kan Peng, Shun Cheng Chang, Kun-Lun Huang,

PURPOSE:One of the most common complications of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO₂) therapy is middle ear barotrauma (MEB), occasionally causing otalgia. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of dried salted plum consumption on MEB and otalgia associated with HBO₂ therapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS:Patients undergoing the first chamber session ... Read more >>

Epigenetic signatures may explain the relationship between socioeconomic position and risk of mental illness: preliminary findings from an urban community-based sample.

Monica Uddin, Sandro Galea, Shun Chiao Chang, Karestan C Koenen, Emily Goldmann, Derek E Wildman, Allison E Aiello,

Low socioeconomic position (SEP) has previously been linked to a number of negative health indicators, including poor mental health. The biologic mechanisms linking SEP and mental health remain poorly understood. Recent work suggests that social exposures influence DNA methylation in a manner salient to mental health. We conducted a pilot ... Read more >>

SLC6A4 methylation modifies the effect of the number of traumatic events on risk for posttraumatic stress disorder.

Karestan C Koenen, Monica Uddin, Shun-Chiao Chang, Allison E Aiello, Derek E Wildman, Emily Goldmann, Sandro Galea,

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a common and debilitating mental disorder that occurs following exposure to a traumatic event. However, most individuals do not develop PTSD following even a severe trauma, leading to a search for new variables, such as genetic and other molecular variation, associated with vulnerability and resilience ...

Topoisomerase II alpha expression and the benefit of adjuvant chemotherapy for postoperative patients with non-small cell lung cancer.

Shi Yan, Jiao Shun-Chang, Chen Li, Li Jie, Lv Ya-Li, Wang Ling-Xiong,

BACKGROUND: Adjuvant chemotherapy has been shown to improve survival rates of postoperative patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Biomarkers could help select an appropriate chemotherapy for NSCLC patients or predict the efficacy of chemotherapy. The objective of this study was to explore the possible prognostic and predictive role of ... Read more >>

Myxoma virus M063R is a host range gene essential for virus replication in rabbit cells.

John W Barrett, Chew Shun Chang, Gen Wang, Steven J Werden, Zhuhong Shao, Catherine Barrett, Xiujuan Gao, Tara A Belsito, Danielle Villenevue, Grant McFadden,

The myxoma virus M063R gene product exhibits some sequence similarity to the poxvirus host range gene, C7L, of vaccinia virus. To address the potential host range function of the M063R gene product in rabbits, a deletion mutant of myxoma virus (vMyx63KO) was generated and characterized. vMyx63KO replicated to normal titre ...

Complex segregation and linkage analysis of familial gout in Taiwanese aborigines.

Wen Hsin Wang, Shun Jen Chang, Tsu Nai Wang, Li Shu-Chuan Cheng, Yu Ping Feng, Chung Jen Chen, Chun Hsiung Huang, Ying Chin Ko,

OBJECTIVE: The prevalence of gout and hyperuricemia in Taiwanese aborigines is remarkably high. Although previous studies have failed to find evidence of a major gene responsible for gout, the disease is thought to involve genetic predisposition. We sought to determine whether genetic factors for familial gout exist among Taiwanese aborigines, ... Read more >>

High prevalence of hyperuricemia in adolescent Taiwan aborigines.

Ying Chin Ko, Tsu Nai Wang, Li Yu Tsai, Fown Tzu Chang, Shun Jen Chang,

OBJECTIVE: To explore the prevalence and related factors of hyperuricemia among adolescent Taiwan aborigines in tribes with a high prevalence of adult gout, compared with adolescents of low prevalence aboriginal and non-aboriginal tribes. METHODS: The participants were aborigines and non-aborigines in Taiwan, age 12 to 15 years and free of ... Read more >>
