Random grouping by computer, divided into two groups, a group of rhubarb treatment group, another group for the placebo group.


Patients were randomly divided into two groups, using rhubarb powder or placebo. Rhubarb is commercially certified rhubarb(Rheum palmatum, Sichuan origin, provided by the pharmacy of my hospital), ground into a powder, over 80 mesh steel mesh, Two days before 6g, three times / day, oral or nasal feeding, two days later reduced to 3g, three times / day, oral or nasal feeding; Another group of patients taking placebo, with the same dose of Rhubarb; The overall course of the two drugs was a week.

Starch spherulites prepared by a combination of enzymatic and acid hydrolysis of normal corn starch.

This paper describes a new method to prepare spherulites from normal corn starch by a combination of enzymatic (mixtures of α-amylase and amyloglucosidase) and acid hydrolysis followed by recrystalli...

In vitro digestibility of normal and waxy corn starch is modified by the addition of Tween 80.

Aqueous dispersions of normal and waxy corn starch (3% w/w) were mixed with Tween 80 (0, 7.5, 15, 22.5 and 30 g/100 g of starch), and gelatinized (90 °C, 20 min). Optical microscopy of the ge...

A review on blending of corn starch with natural and synthetic polymers, and inorganic nanoparticles with mathematical modeling.

Maize or corn is considered as very distinctive plant. Corn having better capability of utilizing sun light, is a noble way of getting a natural polymer known as starch. Amylopectin and amylase compos...

Shear-thickening behavior of gelatinized waxy starch dispersions promoted by the starch molecular characteristics.

An unusual shear-thickening behavior was observed in 10% w/w gelatinized waxy potato and waxy corn starch dispersions at shear rates around 20 s. However, the phenomenon was not found in gelatinized...

Using vibrational molecular spectroscopy with chemometrics as an analytical method to investigate association of degradation with inherent molecular structures in grain.

Corn starch played a critical role in maintaining energy supply for high milk yield. The objectives of this research were to disclose the starch and carbohydrate-related biopolymers degradation in thr...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Systemic inflammatory response syndrome with a proven or suspected infectious etiology. When sepsis is associated with organ dysfunction distant from the site of infection, it is called severe sepsis. When sepsis is accompanied by HYPOTENSION despite adequate fluid infusion, it is called SEPTIC SHOCK.

Syrup made from corn used widely in foods and beverages as a cheaper alternative sweetener to SUCROSE (common table sugar). It is generated by enzymatic processing of natural corn syrup to produce a liquid most widely composed of 42 or 55% FRUCTOSE, GLUCOSE, and various POLYSACCHARIDES.

Oil from ZEA MAYS or corn plant.

Acute neurological dysfunction during severe SEPSIS in the absence of direct brain infection characterized by systemic inflammation and BLOOD BRAIN BARRIER perturbation.

Electrophoresis in which a starch gel (a mixture of amylose and amylopectin) is used as the diffusion medium.
