ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To detect the expression level of suppressors of cytokine signaling 3 (SOCS3) in acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), and to observe the effect of over-expresson of SOCS3 in Jurkat cells on the cytotoxicity of NK cells.@*METHODS@#The expression levels of SOCS3 mRNA in peripheral blood mononuclear cells of 20 children with ALL and 20 healthy children (normal control group) were detected by RT-PCR. The peripheral blood NK cells from healthy subjects were selected by immunomagnetic technique, and the purity was detected by flow cytometry. SOCS3 was overexpressed in Jurkat cells infected with lentivirus vector, and SOCS3 mRNA expression was detected by RT-PCR after lentivirus infection. The NK cells were co-cultured with the infected Jurkat, and LDH release method was used to detect the cytotoxicity of NK cells on the infected Jurkat cells. The concentrations of TNF-α and IFN-γ were determined by ELISA. The expression of NKG2D ligands MICA and MICB on the surface of Jurkat cells were detected by flow cytometry. Western blot was used to detect the effect of SOCS3 overexpression on STAT3 phosphorylation in Jurkat cells.@*RESULTS@#Compared with the control group, the mRNA expression of SOCS3 in the peripheral blood mononucleated cells of ALL children was significantly decreased. The purity of NK cells isolated by flow cytometry could reach more than 70%. The expression of SOCS3 mRNA in Jurkat cells increased significantly after lentivirus infection. Overexpression of SOCS3 in Jurkat cells significantly promoted the killing ability of NK cells and up-regulated the secretion of TNF-α and IFN-γ from NK cells. The results of flow cytometry showed that the expression of NKG2D ligands MICA and MICB on Jurkat cells increased significantly after SOCS3 overexpression. Western blot results showed that overexpression of SOCS3 significantly reduced the phosphorylation level of STAT3 protein in Jurkat cells.@*CONCLUSION@#SOCS3 mRNA expression was significantly decreased in ALL patients, and overexpression of SOCS3 may up-regulate the expression of MICA and MICB of NKG2D ligands on Jurkat cell surface through negative regulation of JAK/STAT signaling pathway, thereby promoting the cytotoxic function of NK cells.

ABSTRACT

The ischemic mitral regurgitation( IMR) is present in 20% to 30% of patients with old myocardial infarction. In patients with heart failure after myocardial infarction , the incidence of IMR is even as high as 50%.IMR has adverse effects on the prognosis of patients and is positively correlated with the degree of reflux , including increased risk of heart failure and mortality of cardiovascular disease.Patients with severe hemodynamic abnormalities, and in the case of have accepted the best drug treatment is still difficult to alleviate symptoms of heart failure , surgical treatment should be implemented.However, the surgical treatment strategy of IMR is still controversial, that is, for the moderate IMR, only the blood transport reconstruction is sufficient to restore the natural form of the valve, whether the valve operation needs to be performed simultaneously ; In the case of severe IMR, simultaneous valvular surgery has been agreed upon.The controversy is that the mitral valve repair(MVP) and mitral valve replacement(MVR) are both superior and inferior.The purpose of this paper is to review the literature on IMR sur-gery in order to help us understand this important question.

ABSTRACT

Objective@#To determine the value of N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) on predicting the long-term outcome of patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) .@*Methods@#NT-proBNP was measured in 831 consecutive patients with HCM at Fuwai Hospital from October 2009 to December 2013 and patients were followed up clinically for (53.3±15.4) months. Patients were divided into 3 groups according to NT-proBNP values: NT-proBNP<860 pmol/L (n=276) , 860 pmol/L≤NT-proBNP≤1 905 pmol/L (n=278) , NT-proBNP>1 905 pmol/L (n=277) . The related baseline data, laboratory examination and echocardiographic results were compared among groups. The primary endpoints of this study were all-cause mortality and cardiac transplantation. Cox proportional hazards model was used to estimate hazard ratio (HR) . Kaplan-Meier analysis was used to evaluate the survival status of patients among the 3 groups.@*Results@#During a median follow-up of (53.3±15.4) months, all-cause mortality or cardiac transplantation occurred in 37 patients (4.5%) , event rate was 1.4% (4/276) , 4.0% (11/278) and 7.9% (22/277) in patients with NT-proBNP<860 pmol/L, 860 pmol/L≤NT-proBNP≤1 905 pmol/L and NT-proBNP>1 905 pmol/L, respectively. Multivariable Cox regression analysis identified that age (HR 1.066, 95%CI 1.027-1.107) and NT-proBNP (HR 1.026, 95% CI 1.010-1.042) were independent predictors of all-cause mortality or cardiac transplantation. Among the 3 groups, the survival rate of the NT-proBNP<860 pmol/L group was the highest,and that of the NT-proBNP>1 905 pmol/L group was the lowest (P<0.01) .@*Conclusions@#The level of NT-proBNP provides clinically relevant information for long-term adverse events risk stratification in patients with HCM.

ABSTRACT

Objective@#To investigate the clinical features and surgical treatment effect of patients with cardiac cavernous hemangioma.@*Methods@#Clinical data of 9 patients (5 male, aged from 4 to 53 years old) with cardiac cavernous hemangioma, who underwent surgical treatment from November 2002 to March 2015 and the diagnosis of cardiac cavernous hemangioma was confirmed by postoperative histological examination, were retrospectively analyzed. Effects of surgical treatment were analyzed.@*Results@#Four patients were asymptomatic (heart murmur presented in 3 patients during physical examination). Three patients presented with palpitation, chest distress, and short of breath. One patient presented with epigastric discomfort and another patient presented with intermittent fever for more than 10 months. ST and T wave changes of electrocardiogram were found in 2 patients, cardiac mass was detected in the right heart chamber in 5 patients by echocardiography, and no cardiac mass was detected the rest 4 patients. Cardiac masses were resected en bloc, then the adjacent tissues were repaired in 7 patients, and mass was partially resected due to the involvement with adjacent heart structure. No cardiac mass was found during operation in 1 case, impaired mitral valve structure was excised and postoperative pathologically confirmed as cardiac valve cavernous angioma on the excised mitral valve structure. No signs of recurrence or enlargement of cardiac cavernous hemangioma were found during the 11(10, 11)years follow up.@*Conclusions@#There is no specific clinical feature for patients with cardiac cavernous hemangioma. It is difficult to detect the cardiac valve cavernous angioma by echocardiography before surgery. Individualized surgical treatment is associated with good clinical outcome in this patient cohort. However, the clinical features and surgical treatment effect of patients with cardiac cavernous hemangioma still need to investigate in large sample trial.

ABSTRACT

This study was aimed to explore the correlation of mean platelet volume (MPV), fibrinogen (FIB) and blood rheology with the youth patients with cerebral infarction, so as to provide the basis for the clinical early diagnosis and treatment. The 109 patients with cerebral infarction aged between 18 - 45 were divided into three group: the large (> 10 cm(3)), middle (4 - 10 cm(3)) and small (< 4 cm(3)) area infarction; 30 healthy persons were served as control group. All the four groups were subjected to 16 examinations, such as MPV, FIB, and rheology (Lηb, Mηb, Hηb, ηp, Lηr, Mηr, Hηr, KVE, EAI, ERI, EDI, EEI, HCT, ESR). The results showed that all the MPV, FIB and rheology indexes of the different infarction groups were higher than those of healthy control group (P < 0.05). The MPV, FIB and rheology indexes in the large area infarction group were all higher than those in the small area infarction group (P < 0.05). The indexes of MPV, FIB and rheology in the various cerebral infarction area groups obviously decreased, but those did not reach to the level in the healthy control group (P < 0.05). The MPV, FIB content and rheology level correlated with infarction areas (r = 0.36, 0.29 and 0.48, respectively). It is concluded that the serious intensity of youth patients with cerebral infarction positively correlated with the levels of MPV, FIB and rheology indexes. Regular examination of above mentioned index may be useful to prevent youth patients from cerebral infraction.

ABSTRACT

This review article aims to discuss and analyze the background and findings regarding Fisher-Mendel Controversy in Genetics and to elucidate the scientific argument and intellectual integrity involved, as well as their importance in a fair society, and the lesson of Western falls as learned. At the onset of this review, the kernel of Mendel-Fisher Controversy is dissected and then identified. The fact of an organizational restructuring that had never gone towards a happy synchronization for the ensuing years since 1933 is demonstrated. It was at that time after Fisher succeeded Karl Pearson not only as the Francis Galton Professor of Eugenics but also as the chief of the Galton Laboratory at University College, London. The academic style of eugenics in the late 19th and early 20th centuries in the UK is then introduced. Fisher's ideology at that time, with its effects on the human value system and policy-making at that juncture are portrayed. Bioethical assessment is provided. Lessons in history, the emergence of the Eastern phenomenon and the decline of the Western power are outlined
