ABSTRACT

The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between the effects of different doses of X-rays on DNA damage and JAK/STAT signaling pathway activation in A549 cells. The A549 cells were radiated with X-rays at doses of 2, 4, and 8 Gy. The proliferation of A549 cells was detected by CCK8 method. The content of interleukin 6 (IL-6) in culture medium at different time points after irradiation was detected by enzyme-linked immunoassay, and the expression levels of IL-6 receptor (IL-6R) and p53 binding protein 1 (53BP1) were detected by immunofluorescent staining. The expression levels of JAK2, p-JAK2, STAT3 and p-STAT3 were detected by Western blot. The results showed that, compared with the control group, X-ray irradiation reduced the cellular proliferation, up-regulated the expression of 53BP1, increased the IL-6 content in the medium supernatant, and up-regulated the protein expression levels of IL-6R, JAK2, p-JAK2, STAT3, and p-STAT3. The above effects of X-ray irradiation were dose-dependent. These results suggest that the mechanism by which X-rays cause DNA damage in A549 cells may involve activation of the JAK/STAT signaling pathway.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>BACKGROUND</b>Na + /Ca 2+ exchanger (NCX) plays a crucial role in pentylenetetrazol-induced convulsion. However, it is unclear whether NCX is critically involved in hyperthermia-induced convulsion. In this study, we examined the potential changes in NCX3 in the hippocampus and cerebrocortex of rats with hyperthermia-induced convulsion.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>Twenty-one Sprague Dawley rats were randomly assigned to control group, convulsion-prone group and convulsion-resistant group (n = 7 in each group). Whole-cell patch-clamp method was used to record NCX currents. Both the Western blotting analysis and immunofluorescence labeling techniques were used to examine the expression of NCX3.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>NCX currents were decreased in rats after febrile convulsion. Compared to the control group, NCX3 expression was decreased by about 40% and 50% in the hippocampus and cerebrocortex of convulsion-prone rats, respectively. Furthermore, the extent of reduction in NCX3 expression seemed to correlate with the number of seizures.</p><p><b>CONCLUSIONS</b>There is a significant reduction in NCX3 expression in rats with febrile convulsions. Our findings also indicate a potential link between NCX3 expression, febrile convulsion in early childhood, and adult onset of epilepsy.</p>

ABSTRACT

Previous studies have demonstrated a strong association between carbamazepine (CBZ)-induced Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and HLA-B*1502 in Han Chinese. Here, we extended the study of HLA-B*1502 susceptibility to two different antiepileptic drugs, oxcarbazepine (OXC) and phenobabital (PB). In addition, we genotyped HLA-B*1511 in a case of CBZ-induced SJS with genotype negative for HLA-B*1502. The presence of HLA-B*1502 was determined using polymerase chain reaction with sequence-specific primers (PCR-SSP). Moreover, we genotyped HLA-B*1502 in 17 cases of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs)-induced cutaneous adverse drug reactions (cADRs), in comparison with AEDs-tolerant (n=32) and normal controls (n=38) in the central region of China. The data showed that HLA-B*1502 was positive in 5 of 6 cases of AEDs-induced SJS (4 CBZ, 1 OXC and 1 PB), which was significantly more frequent than AEDs-tolerant (2/32, 18 CBZ, 6 PB and 8 OXC) and normal controls (3/38). Compared with AEDs-tolerant and normal controls, the OR for patients carrying the HLA-B*1502 with AEDs-induced SJS was 6.25 (95% CI: 1.06-36.74) and 4.86 (95% CI: 1.01-23.47). The sensitivity and specificity of HLA-B*1502 for prediction of AEDs-induced SJS were 71.4%. The sensitivity and specificity of HLA-B*1502 for prediction of CBZ-induced SJS were 60% and 94%. HLA-B*1502 was not found in 11 children with maculopapular exanthema (MPE) (n=9) and hypersensitivity syndrome (HSS) (n=2). However, we also found one case of CBZ-induced SJS who was negative for HLA-B*1502 but carried HLA-B*1511. It was suggested that the association between the CBZ-induced SJS and HLA-B*1502 allele in Han Chinese children can extend to other aromatic AEDs including OXC and PB related SJS. HLA-B*1511 may be a risk factor for some patients with CBZ-induced SJS negative for HLA-B*1502.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate the effect from helmet mass and deviation of mass center on neck muscle activity in military pilots. Methods Based on AnyBody software platform, a musculoskeletal model of head neck complex was established including C0, C1-C7, T1 and 136 muscles. Concentrated loads were applied to simulate the role of helmet. Strength from seven main muscle groups under different helmet mass, mass center and +Gz acceleration loads were simulated and calculated.Results When mass center of the helmet and the head coincided with each other, the muscle groups (such as semispinalis, levator scapulae, splenius capitis and cervicis) which took charge of extension were activated. Muscle strength increased with helmet mass linearly and +Gz acceleration loads would make this increase multiplied. Flexion muscle began to work when mass center of the helmet moved backward, so did the lateral bending muscles when mass center of helmet moved in the right-and-left direction. Conclusions Helmet mass and its center have an obvious influence on neck muscle activity in military pilots. The musculoskeletal model established in this paper can be used to calculate the change in muscle strength under different situations and conduct a quantitative analysis for helmet design and validation.

ABSTRACT

Objective To analyze the neck muscle activity during head flexion and explore the cause of muscle fatigue in human head and neck. Methods A musculoskeletal model of head neck complex was established based on AnyBody software platform, and the muscle strengths during head flexion were simulated according to the input data measured by Vicon motion capture system, which were validated with the literature data. Results The neck muscles played a major role during head flexion. The force assignment mode among muscles was different during 45% and 75% flexion process. The integral of muscle strengths on flexion angle WM could reflect the muscle fatigue to some extent. Since the largest WM was found in the semispinalis cervicis and multifidus muscles during head flexion, it may indicate that those muscles have the easy tendency to be fatigue. Conclusions The musculoskeletal model established in this paper can provide a technical support for the exploration of neck fatigue mechanism.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE: To explore the effects of Tanreqing injection, a traditional Chinese herbal preparation for clearing heat and resolving phlegm, in treatment of acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (AECOPD) by improving airway inflammation and airway mucus hypersecretion. METHODS: A randomized controlled trial (RCT) was designed. Ninety AECOPD patients were randomly divided into Tanreqing group, ambroxol hydrochloride group and control group. The patients in the three groups were all treated with conventional therapy. Furthermore, intravenous drip infusion of 20 ml Tanreqing injection (once daily) and 15 mg ambroxol hydrochloride injection (twice daily) were administered respectively to the patients in the Tanreqing group and ambroxol hydrochloride group. They were all treated for 10 days. Symptom score of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), plasma concentrations of interleukin-8 (IL-8), IL-10 and neutrophil elastase (NE) were detected before and after treatment. RESULTS: Cough, sputum amount, expectoration, dyspnea, fever, coated tongue and pulse tracings were improved obviously in Tanreqing group (P0.05). Compared with ambroxol hydrochloride group and the control group, the coated tongue was improved obviously in Tanreqing group (P>0.05). After treatment, plasma concentrations of IL-8, IL-10 and NE were decreased in Tanreqing group and ambroxol hydrochloride group (P0.05). Total response rates in Tanreqing group and ambroxol hydrochloride group were higher than that in the control group (P0.05). There was no significant difference in total response rate among the three groups (P>0.05). CONCLUSION: Tanreqing injection can improve TCM signs and symptoms in AECOPD patients, and the mechanism maybe due to the decrease of serum levels of IL-8 and NE and improvement of IL-10 level.

ABSTRACT

By using principles and methods of evidence-based medicine in a broad sense to systematically look up clinical acupuncture and moxibustion literatures issued in Chinese Acupuncture and Moxibustion, Journal of Clinical Acupuncture and Moxibustion, and Shanghai Journal of Acupuncture and Moxibustion from January, 2003 to June 2005, and relative official internet station of the departments responsible for health, to stipulate common criteria and select literatures. Preliminarily selected clinical acupuncture and moxibustion study literatures of 1 637 papers, and comprehensive synthesizing the message from the official internet station of The Ministry of Health and The State Administration of Chinese Medicine and Pharmacy etc., indicates that although acupuncture and moxibustion have been widely applied in clinical treatment of 327 diseases, at present there is no systematic training system for resident physicians and special physicians of acupuncture and moxibustion, which is unfavourable for development of sciences and internationalization. On the basis of comprehensively considering the tendency of medical development at home and abroad and characteristics of training of talented persons and subject development of acupuncture and moxibustion, the training system of resident physicians and special physicians of acupuncture and moxibustion should be founded as soon as possible.

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of Chaige Qingre Granule, a traditional Chinese compound herbal medicine, in treating acute upper respiratory tract infection of wind heat syndrome. METHODS: A multi-center, double-blinded, randomized controlled trial was conducted. In the phase II, 60 patients with acute upper respiratory tract infection were randomly divided into the trial group (n=30) and the control group (n=30). In the phase III, 112 patients were randomly divided into the trial group (n=84) and the control group (n=28). The trial group received 6 g Chaige Qingre Granule, and the control group received 6 g Fufang Shuanghua Granule (another traditional Chinese compound herbal medicine). The two groups were all treated for 3 days and four times daily. Clinical symptoms, syndromes, adverse effect, blood, urine and stool test, hepatorenal function and electrocardiogram were examined before and after the treatment. RESULTS: After treatment, the overall obvious response rates of the trial group and the control group were 78.57%, 82.14% (by per-protocol analysis) and 75.86%, 79.31% (by intention-to-treat analysis) respectively, and the overall response rates of the two groups were 96.43%, 100% (by per-protocol analysis) and 93.10%, 96.55% (by intention-to-treat analysis) respectively in phase II. There were no significant differences between the two groups (P>0.05). In the phase III, the overall obvious response rates of the trial group and the control group were 90.54%, 73.08% (by per-protocol analysis) and 88.16%, 70.37% (by intention-to-treat analysis) respectively, and the overall response rates of the two groups were 94.59%, 96.15% (by per-protocol analysis) and 92.11%, 92.59% (by intention-to-treat analysis) respectively. There were no statistical differences between the two groups (P>0.05) too. No adverse effects were found in the trial. CONCLUSION: Chaige Qingre Granule is effective and safe in treating acute upper respiratory tract infection of wind heat syndrome.
