Cerebral small vessel disease (CSVD) is a senile brain lesion caused by the abnormal structure and function of arterioles, venules and capillaries in the aging brain. The etiology of CSVD is complex, and disease is often asymptomatic in its early stages. However, as CSVD develops, brain disorders may occur, such as stroke, cognitive dysfunction, dyskinesia and mood disorders, and heart, kidney, eye and systemic disorders. As the population continues to age, the burden of CSVD is increasing. Moreover, there is an urgent need for better screening methods and diagnostic markers for CSVD, in addition to preventive and asymptomatic- and mild-stage treatments. Integrative medicine (IM), which combines the holistic concepts and syndrome differentiations of Chinese medicine with modern medical perspectives, has unique advantages for the prevention and treatment of CSVD. In this review, we summarize the biological markers, ultrasound and imaging features, disease-related genes and risk factors relevant to CSVD diagnosis and screening. Furthermore, we discuss IM-based CSVD prevention and treatment strategies to stimulate further research in this field.

To describe epidemiologic characteristics of norovirus infection and its genotype in Shenzhen area of 2010. Stool specimens were collected from four monitoring point and detected by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (PT-PCR). Positive PCR products were purified and sequenced, and the sequences were performed by Clustal W and MEGA 4.0 programs, then genotype was identified and phylogenetic tree was constructed. Nucleotide sequence analysis revealed that 79 strains of NV belonged to norovirus genogroup II and 6 belonged to genogroup 1 of all 85 positive products. While 55 strains belonged to G II/4(2006b), 16 strains belonged to G II/4(2008 variant), 2 strains belonged to G II /1, 4 strains belonged to G II/5, 2 strains belonged to G II/11, 1 strain belonged to GII/4, 2 strains belonged to GII/5, 3 strains belonged to GI/6. The main genogroups of norovirus in Shenzhen ware GI and G II. G II /4 was one of the most major genotype of norovirus , while G II /4(2006b) variant was identified as the predominant strain in Shenzhen area.
