Article: Association between TaqIB polymorphism of cholesteryl ester transfer protein and coronary artery disease in the Chinese population.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: To assess whether the TaqIB polymorphism of cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) is associated with coronary artery disease (CAD) in Chinese population, we performed a meta-analysis in this paper. We searched PubMed, Embase, the Science Citation Index (SCI), the China Biological Medicine database (CBM), the China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI), and the Wanfang database for relevant articles. Data were extracted, and pooled odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were calculated. The literature search yielded 448 studies, in which 10 case-control studies including 1694 cases and 1456 controls matched the selection criteria. The combined B1 and B2 allele frequencies were 0.587 and 0.413, respectively. The pooled OR was 1.10 (95% CI, 0.89-1.34) for comparing the B1B1 or B1B2 carriers with B2B2 carriers, and was 1.27 (95% CI, 1.09-1.49) in the B1B1 carriers versus B2B2 or B1B2 carriers. In the present study, the TaqIB polymorphism of CETP was found to be associated with CAD in the Chinese population.Journal of Zhejiang University SCIENCE B 05/2012; 13(5):342-7. · 1.10 Impact Factor

ABSTRACT: To evaluate the therapeutic effect of acupuncture for the aphasia. The publications of acupuncture for the treatment of aphasia are comprehensively searched from relevant domestic medical literature databases, China National Knowledge Infrastructure and Chinese BioMedical Literature Database. Meta analysis was conducted by using the publications. Twenty six trials of 338 matched the selection criteria and their data were suitable for Meta analysis. The total aphasia patients were 1749. The total odds ratio (OR) of the improvement with acupuncture plus language training and drugs compared with language training plus drug intervention was 3.66 (95% confidence interval, 2.81, 4.76), and the funnel plot was approximately symmetry. It is indicated that the curative effect of the acupuncture group is better than that of the control group (Z = 9.60, P < 0.001). The effect of acupuncture with language training plus drugs for the treatment of aphasia is better than that of language training plus drugs only.Zhen ci yan jiu = Acupuncture research / [Zhongguo yi xue ke xue yuan Yi xue qing bao yan jiu suo bian ji] 12/2010; 35(6):468-73.
