Nantong, China

Nantong University , colloquially known in Chinese as Tong da , was established in 1912. The university is located in Nantong, Jiangsu province, China. It occupies 4000 acres and have 800 thousand square meters used for school buildings. Nantong is comprehensive university constructed by Jiangsu Provincial Government and the state Ministry of Transport. It is composed of three parts, Nantong Medical College, Nantong Engineering College and Nantong Normal College and has four campuses: the new campus, Qixiu campus, Zhongxiu campus and Qidong campus. The enrollment is nearly 34 thousand full-time students, among whom 1550 are graduates and 300 are oversea students. The university has 84 undergraduate programs based on nine major disciplines, which are literature, science, engineering, medical science, education, economics, law, history and management.

This article reviews recent reports of outcomes of flexor tendon repair and discusses the problems associated with such surgeries. Reports of no repair rupture in individual case series have emerged recently. Their results move toward the clinical goal of primary repair without repair rupture. The Strickland method remains the most common to record the outcomes. Outcomes should be provided by subzones of the tendon injuries, and the level of expertise of the surgeons expertise should be reported to allow comparisons of the results. © 2013. Source

The multicellular female gametophyte, a unique feature of higher plants, provides us with an excellent experimental system to address fundamental questions in biology. During the past few years, we have gained significant insight into the mechanisms that control embryo sac polarity, gametophytic cell specification, and recognition between male and female gametophytic cells. An auxin gradient has been shown for the first time to function in the female gametophyte to regulate gametic cell fate, and key genes that control gametic cell fate have also been identified. This review provides an overview of these exciting discoveries with a focus on molecular and genetic data. Copyright © 2010 by Annual Reviews. All rights reserved. Source

Tea (Camellia sinensis) has a long history of medicinal use in Asian countries such as China, Japan, India and Thailand as ancient as 500,000 years ago. Tea is globally one of the most popular and lowest cost beverages, next only to water. Tea leaves are popularly consumed with unfermented (green tea), semi-fermented (oolong tea), and fermented (black and puerh) forms. The chemical composition of tea mainly includes polyphenols (TPP), proteins, polysaccharides (TPS), chlorophyll, and alkaloids. Great advances have been made in chemical and bioactive studies of catechins and polyphenols from tea in recent decades. However, polysaccharides from tea materials have received much less consideration than TPP. Recently, TPS from tea leaves and flowers have attracted great interest. The number of relevant publications has increased rapidly in recent years. Herein, the bioactivities and function aspects of TPS from Chinese tea were reviewed. © 2013 Elsevier B.V. Source

Nonlinear Analysis: Real World Applications | Year: 2014

Considered herein is the Cauchy problem of a generalized two-component μ-Camassa-Holm (μ-CH) system in the periodic setting. After the local well-posedness result is established, we first obtain a wave breaking criterion for solutions. Based on which, several blow-up data and blow up rate for strong solutions are also provided afterwards. Finally, a sufficient condition guaranteeing the global existence of strong solutions is determined. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. Source

During primary or delayed primary repair of the flexor digitorum profundus tendon, surgeons often face difficulty in passing the retracted tendon or repaired tendon under the dense, fibrous A4 pulley. The A4 pulley is the narrowest part of the flexor sheath, proximal to the terminal tendon. Disrupted tendon ends (or surgically repaired tendons) are usually swelling, making passage of the tendons under this pulley difficult or even impossible. During tendon repair in the A4 pulley area, when the trauma is in the middle part of the middle phalanx and the A3 pulley is intact, the A4 pulley can be vented entirely to accommodate surgical repair and facilitate gliding of the repaired tendon after surgery. Venting the pulley does not disturb tendon function when the other major pulleys are intact and when the venting of the A4 pulley and adjacent sheath is limited to the middle half of the middle phalanx. Such venting is easily achieved through a palmar midline or lateral incision of the A4 pulley and its adjacent distal or/and proximal sheath, which helps ensure a more predictable recovery of digital flexion and extension. © 2014 ASSH Published by Elsevier, Inc.
