ABSTRACT

Since the 21st century, with the rapid development of biomedicine, research and discussion on human-animal chimerism technology have attracted wide attention. The general research of human-animal chimeras is to introduce human stem cells into animal embryos that remove organ genes, aiming to cultivate human organs in human-animal chimeras to solve the shortage of human organ donors and provide experimental materials for the development of related scientific research. However, due to its technology involves cross-species genetic modification, which destroys the species boundary and the naturalness of ecological niche, it has caused various ethical issues such as threatening species safety and harming human dignity. The development of human-animal chimerism technology is the choice of the times for technological progress, with its inevitability and rationality. It should not be absolutely prohibited, but must abide by the ethical principles such as safety, benefit, respect, and justice, and operate harmoniously under strict and orderly ethical norms.

ABSTRACT

The ECG signal is susceptible to interference from the external environment during the acquisition process, affecting the analysis and processing of the ECG signal. After the traditional soft-hard threshold function is processed, there is a defect that the signal quality is not high and the continuity at the threshold is poor. An improved threshold function wavelet denoising is proposed, which has better regulation and continuity, and effectively solves the shortcomings of traditional soft and hard threshold functions. The Matlab simulation is carried out through a large amount of data, and various processing methods are compared. The results show that the improved threshold function can improve the denoising effect and is superior to the traditional soft and hard threshold denoising.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVES: Pseudolaric acid B (PAB) has been shown to inhibit the growth of various tumor cells, but the molecular details of its function are still unknown. This study investigated the molecular mechanisms by which PAB induces apoptosis in HeLa cells. METHODS: The 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) assays were performed to investigate the effect of PAB treatment in various cervical cancer cell lines. Annexin V/propidium iodide staining combined with flow cytometry and Hoechst 33258 staining were used to assess PAB-induced apoptosis. Additionally, we performed bioinformatics analyses and identified a paired box 2 (PAX2) binding site on the BAX promoter. We then validated the binding using luciferase and chromatin immunoprecipitation assays. Finally, western blotting assays were used to investigate PAB effect on the Wnt signaling and the involved signaling molecules. RESULTS: PAB promotes apoptosis and downregulates PAX2 expression in HeLa cells in a time- and concentration-dependent manner. PAX2 binds to the promoter of BAX and inhibits its expression; therefore, PAX2 inhibition is associated with increased levels of BAX, which induces apoptosis of HeLa cells via the mitochondrial pathway. Additionally, PAB inhibits classical Wnt signaling. CONCLUSION: PAB effectively inhibits Wnt signaling and PAX2 expression, and increases BAX levels, which induce apoptosis in HeLa cells. Therefore, PAB is a promising natural molecule for the treatment of cervical cancer.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate the changes and related factors of maternal thyroid autoantibodies during early pregnancy. Methods Urinary iodine concentration( UIC) , serum thyroid stimulating hormone( TSH) , free thyroxine ( FT4 ) , thyroid-peroxidase antibody ( TPOAb ) , thyroglobulin antibody ( TgAb ) concentrations were determined in 7 190 women during early pregnancy in an iodine-sufficient region of China. Results The prevalence of TPOAb positivity and TgAb positivity were 8. 7% and 12. 0% respectively. The prevalence of overt hypothyroidism and subclinical hypothyroidism increased significantly in group of thyroid antibody positivity. The prevalence of TPOAb positivity and TgAb positivity presented a U-shaped curve, ranging from mild iodine deficiency to iodine excess, especially increased significantly in the group with UIC<100 μg/L. Conclusion Prevalence of thyroid antibodies positivity became higher during early pregnancy. The positive thyroid autoantibodies during pregnancy were significantly associated with maternal hypothyroidism. Both iodine excess and iodine deficiency are risk factors of positive thyroid antibodies.

ABSTRACT

This study introduced the application of a log-linear model in the hybrid design of case-parents triad/control-mother dyad.Data related to the association between cleft lip with palate (CLP) and methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene A1298C diversity was analyzed.Log-linear model based on likelihood ratio tests (LRTs) was used to analyze the relationships between mother,offspring genotypes and CLP.Data from our study noticed that children of mothers carrying the CC genotype presented a lower risk of CLP,comparing with the children of mothers carrying the AA genotype,with S2=0.45 (95%CI:0.26-0.79).Offspring that carrying the AC genotype presented a lower risk of CLP,comparing with the offspring that carrying the AA genotype,with R1 =0.69 (95%CI:0.48-0.97).However,no other types of relationships were found.The power of hybrid design was greater than the case-parents study (0.86>0.78).MTHFR A1298C polymorphism seemed to have played an important role in the etiology on both cleft lip and palate.Data from the hybrid design and the log-linear model could help researchers to explore the effects of genotypes from both mothers and the offspring.This study design would present stronger power than the regular case-parents studies thus suitable for studies on the etiology of diseases in early lives,as birth defects.

ABSTRACT

Lavandula angustifolia was used to treat flus and fevers, joint swelling and pain in Uighur medicine. This study aimed to investigate antioxidant, antit anti-inflammatory and antalgic noids content [530.1mg/g rutin/g dry extract] with stronger DPPH scavenging abilities and reduciactivities of total flavonoids from Lavandula angustifolia [LTF]. Results indicated that LTF possesses the highest total flavong power. Some flavonoids separated from LTF, and their DPPH scavenging abilities as follows: rosmarinic acid [2, near to Vit C] >luteolin [3] >apigenin [4] >luteolin 7-O-beta-D-glucoside [5] >apigenin 7-[O-beta-D-glucoside [6] >luteolin 7-[O-beta-D-glucuronide [7]. LTF significantly decreased malondialdehyde [MDA] level in D-galactose induced aging model compared to the control group [P<0.05], as well as significantly increased plasma superoxide dismutase [SOD] and glutathione peroxidase [GSH-Px] activities [P<0.05]. Moreover, 17.4, 34.8 and 69.6 mg/kg doses of LTF were exhibited significant analgesic and anti-inflammatory activities in a dose dependent manner [P<0.05]. Cytotoxicity of LTF on Bel-7402 and Hela cell lines were showed by MTT assay also. These results verified traditional usage of this plant and suggested also that LTF is worth developing and studying further

ABSTRACT

ObjectiveTo investigate the cumulative incidence of persistent hypothyroidism in patients who were diagnosed as postpartum thyroiditis ( PPT),and to determine the factors associated with the development of persistent hypothyroidism in those patients.MethodsThe present study was performed as the continuous study followed by the former epidemiological survey on PPT,in which 58 patients with PPT (35 overt PPT and 23 subclinical PPT) were diagnosed.The 58 patients were followed up at 12th month postpartum,and then for every 6 months until 24 months postpartum.Fasting blood samples were taken for testing serum TSH,thyroid peroxidase antibody ( TPOAb),and thyroglobulin antibody ( TgAb ).Free T3 ( FT3 ),free T4 ( FT4 ),and TSH receptor antibody ( TRAh ) were detected if TSH was abnormal.50 healthy postpartum women were used as control group.ResultsOf the total 58 PPT patients,91,4% ( n =53 ) were successfully followed.Five patients with overt PPT and 6 patients with subclinical PPT developed persistent hypothyroidism,and the cumulative incidence of persistent hypothyroidism in the studied PPT patients was 20.8%.Among 15 PPT patients who had a classical biphasic course (a thyrotoxic phase followed by a hypothyroid phase),persistent hypothyroidism was seen in 26.7% (n =4 ).Among 11 PPT patients with hypothyroidism only,persistent hypothyroidism was seen in 63.6% ( n =7).On the contrary,none of the patients with thyrotoxicosis only had persistent hypothyroidism.All of the patients who developed persistent hypothyrodism had a higher TSH levels than 4.8 mU/L at 6th month postpartum.Before delivery,TSH levels of the patients developed persistent hypothyroidism were significantly higher than those of the patients with transient hypothyroidism,and this was the case at the 12th month postpartum ( all P<0.01 ).PPT patients maintained a relatively higher rate of thyroid autoantibodies.The positive rate of TPOAb at the 12th,18th,and 24th month postpartum was 56.6%,50.9%,and 52.8%,respectively; and the positive rate of TgAb being 35.8%,30.2%,and 30.2%,respectively.Both the positive rate and titer of TPOAb in patients with overt PPT were higher than those in patients with subclinical PPT at the 18th and 24th month postpartum (P<0.05).Conclusions 20.8% patients with PPT developed persistent hypothyroidism at the 24th month postpartum.Whether a patient with PPT would develop persistent hypothyroidism depends on his clinical feature and TSH level.

ABSTRACT

Objective To use the first trimester-specific reference intervals of thyroid-related hormones to explore the prevalence of thyroid dysfunction during early pregnancy and to analyze effectiveness of different screening strategies. Methods In this study 2 899 pregnant women were enrolled during the first trimester of gestation. TSH, FT4, FT3, and thyroid peroxidase antibody (TPOAb) were measured and thyroid disorders of pregnant women were diagnosed based on the first trimester-specific reference intervals. Results The prevalence of hypothyroidism was significantly higher in the high-risk group than in the non-high risk group ( 16.3% vs 5.3%,RR = 3.1,95% CI 2.4-4.0, P<0.01 ). TPOAb ( RR = 4.7, 95 % CI 3.6-6.0, P<0.01 ), and personal history of thyroid diseases ( RR=3.2, 95% CI 1.9-5.4, P<0.01 ) increased the risk of hypothyroidism. The prevalence of hyperthyroidism was higher in the high-risk group (3.1% vs 1.4%, P = 0. 006, RR = 2.2, 95% CI 1.2-3.9, P=0.006). TPOAb (RR=2.6, 95%CI 1.3-5.0, P=0.007), and presence of personal history of thyroid diseases( RR=4.7, 95% CI 1.7-12.5, P=0.006) also increased the risk of hyperthyroidism. 56.7% women with hypothyroidism and 64. 7% women with hyperthyroidism were in the non-high risk group. Conclusion We recommend that screening all pregnant women for thyroid disorders in the first trimester with TSH, FT4, and TPOAb is more effective than the case-finding approach.

ABSTRACT

Objective To prospectively observe the effect of levothyroxine treatment on neuropsychological development in offspring of pregnant women with subclinical hypothyroidism. Methods Twenty-three pregnant women with subclinical hypothyroidism received levothyroxine therapy (SCH+LT4 group) and 17 who did not receive levothyroxine ( SCH group) were enrolled; 24 pregnant women with normal thyroid function were referred as controls (C group). All the subjects underwent the planned thyroid tests regularly. Serum TSH, TT4, FT4, TT3,FT3, TPOAb, and TgAb levels were determined. Their 14-30 month-old children underwent the tests relating to intelligence and motor activity with the Bayley scale. Results In SCH group, SCH+LT4 group, and C group, the MDI were 115. 12, 118.56, and 117.63, respectively. And the PDI were 115.47, 120.65, and 117.50,respectively. The MDI and PDI were the highest in SCH+LT4 group and were the lowest in SCH group. Serum TSH levels remained above 2.0 mIU/L during the whole course of pregnancy in SCH group and higher than that in C group at all time points ( P<0.05 ). Serum TT4 and FT4 levels were lower in SCH group than in C group at all time points except G28 and G32. The baseline TSH level in SCH+LT4 group was the highest ( P<0.01 ), their TT4 and FT4 levels were the lowest among the three groups. In SCH + LT4 group, serum TSH, TT4, and FT4 levels were similar to C group after L-T4 treatment. Conclusion The prompt L-T4 treatment can maintain normal TSH levels in pregnant women with subclinical hypothyroidism during the whole course of pregnancy, and impairment of neuropsychological development in infants may be avoided.

ABSTRACT

Objective To explore the correlation between anti-thyroid autoantibodies and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. Methods Four hundred and sixty-two samples with positive thyroid peroxidase antibody (TPOAb) and (or) thyroglobulin antibody (TgAb) were collected. Three hundred and eighty age and gender matched subjects with negative TPOAb and TgAb were selected as controls. The anti-HCV antibody was examined in all the cases using the third-generation enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), HCV RNA qualitative examination was examined further in those who had positive anti-HCV antibody. Meanwhile, 195 subjects with hepatitis C, 150 healthy subjects and 150 subjects with hepatitis B were tested for thyroid-related markers. The data were analyzed by independent-sample t test and chi square test. Results The HCV infection rate in 462 thyroid autoantibodies positive subjects was 1.30% and 0.53% in 380 thyroid autoantibodies negative subjects. There was no significant difference of the HCV infection rate between two groups (X2=1.322, P>0.05). In the subjects with hepatitis C, 30.8% were TPOAb positive, 30.8% were TgAb positive, which were significantly different from those of healthy subjects and subjects with hepatitis B (X2=21.496,X2=30.454;P<0.01). Conclusions HCV infection rate does not increase in subjects with abnormal thyroid autoimmunity. However, positive rate of thyroid autoantibodies increases in subjects with hepatitis C, which suggests that thyroid-related markers should be examined in hepatitis C patients.

ABSTRACT

Objective To clarify the effect of iodine intake on serum thyroglobulin (Tg). Methods A 5-year prospective study was conducted in the 3 different iodine intake areas in China [Panshan (miht deficiency) ,Zhangwu (more than adequate) and Huanghua (excess)]. A total of 3 099 people with normal serum levels of Tg in 1999 were followed and 2 448 of these participants were feasible to be observed in 2004 and included in the present study. The serum levels of Tg, thyraglobulin antibody(TgAb), thyroid peroxidase antibody(TPOAb) and TSH, thyroid volume, family and personal histories of thyroid diseases were measured and inquried. The general linear model (GLM) was used to explore the determinants of Tg. Results Among the study population at baseline, serum Tg were significantly different in three areas [7.5 (4.4-13. 1) μg/L at Panshan, 6.8 (3.6-11.2)μg/L at Huanghua, 5.9 (3.2-10.7) μg/L at Zhangwu, P<0.01]. They were associated with age, sex and the rate of positive TgAb, abnormal thyroid volume, abnormal TSH and positive personal history of thyroid diseases, in order to control the effects of confounding factors, the data from 1856 subjects with thyroid-related indexes all in normal range and without personal history of thyroid diseases were analyzed to clarify the effect of iodine intake on Tg. The serum Tg among three areas were significantly different in both 1999 and 2004, they were all increased in 5 years with significant augment (△ Tg) among the three areas[3.1 (-0.2-8.0) μg/L at Panshan, 3.5 (0.5-9.0)μg/L at Huanghua vs 2. 5(0.3-6.1) μg/L at Zhangwu,P<0.01]. The GLM analysis revealed that age, Tg and TSH levels at baseline were the determinants of △Tg in addition to iodine intake. Conclusion Iodine intake is a dominant determinant of serum Tg. Age and TSH should also be considered while indicating iodine intake by serum Tg.
