Objective:To explore the effect of upregulating CXC-chemokine receptor 7 (CXCR7) in endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) on angiogenesis after cerebral ischemia-reperfusion injury. Methods:EPCs were isolated and cultured from human umbilical cord blood and identified. Then, the EPCs were transfected with CXCR7 overexpression lentiviral vector, and the expression of CXCR7 was identified with real-time PCR and Western blotting. The tube-like structure formation and apoptosis of EPCs under oxidized low density lipoprotein (ox-LDL) were detected with tube-like structure formation test and Annexin V/PI staining. Cerebral ischemia-reperfusion injury model in rats was established, and the qualified model rats were randomly divided into three groups after 24 hours reperfusion: PBS group (n = 12) was injected with phosphate buffers through tail vein, control group (n = 12) was injected the EPCs infected with control lentiviral vector, and CXCR7 group (n = 12) was injected with EPCs infected with CXCR7 overexpression lentiviral vector. Neurological function scores were determined seven and 14 days after transplantation. The cerebral infarct volume was measured, the number of GFP-positive cells in the ischemic site and the density of capillary were observed. Results:The expression of CXCR7 in EPCs increased after transfection (P < 0.01). Overexpression of CXCR7 improved tube formation and reduced apoptosis of EPCs under ox-LDL (P < 0.05). Compared with PBS and control groups , neurological function improved in CXCR7 group, with less infarct volume, more GFP-positive cells and density of capillary (P < 0.05). Conclusion:Up-regulating CXCR7 can improve the survival and angiogenesis of EPCs, and improve the repair of cerebral ischemia-reperfusion injury.

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To prepare the polyclonal antibody of human endothelial-overexpressed lipopolysaccharide-associated factor 1 (EOLA1), and to determine the expression of EOLA1 in human umbilical vein endothelial cell (HUVEC).</p><p><b>METHODS</b>The protein samples (sample 1 and 2) expressing EOLA1 were purified and renatured. The protein concentrations were determined with bicinchoninic acid assay. The protein samples were identified with peptide mass fingerprinting (PMF) analysis. Protein sample with higher coincidence rate of amino acid sequence with theoretic protein was used to inoculate 4 mice; another 4 mice inoculated with adjuvant were used as control. Serum was isolated from collected mice blood. Polyclonal antibody of EOLA1 was purified with saturated ammonium sulfate precipitation, and was determined with ELISA for the titer (data were denoted by absorbance value). The expression of EOLA1 in HUVEC was determined with Western blot.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>The concentration of protein sample 1 and 2 was respectively 0.124 16 mg/mL and 0.132 15 mg/mL. According to PMF analysis, the coincidence rate of amino acid sequence between protein samples and theoretic protein were 32% (protein sample 1) and 24% (protein sample 2). The polyclonal antibody of EOLA1 with titer more than 1:10 000 was obtained from mice inoculated with protein sample 1. The expression of EOLA1 protein in HUVEC was determined with polyclonal antibody of EOLA1.</p><p><b>CONCLUSIONS</b>The polyclonal antibody of EOLA1 can be prepared by inoculating mice with EOLA1 prokaryotic expressing protein, which can be used for determination of EOLA1 protein.</p>

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To evaluate the mid- or long-term clinical results and the factors that influence the outcomes of prosthetic disc nucleus (PDN) replacement in the treatment of lumbar disc disease.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>Thirty-four patients who underwent the PDN replacement from March 2002 to October 2003 were followed for an average of 52.6 months (range from 48 to 66 months). Twenty patients were discogenic low back pain, 14 patients were lumbar disc herniation. The follow-up results were evaluated by using the Oswestry disability index (ODI) and the visual analogue scales (VAS) through direct examinations and questionnaires. ODI was 58.4% preoperatively, and VAS was 7.4. Radiography was also used to measure the range of motion (ROM) and disc height of the operative segment, and findings were compared with those on preoperative radiographs.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>Twelve months after operation, a significant proportion of patients recovered from low back pain or leg pain, ODI decreased to averaged 18.2%. VAS decreased to 1.8, the average increase of the postoperative disc height was 17.6%, ROM was 9.2 degrees. At the final followup, all patients with deteriorated leg radicular symptoms improved, ODI increased from 18.2% 12 months after operation to averaged 31.2%. Low back pain became more serious in 18 patients. VAS increased from 1.8 to 3.1, the average decrease of the postoperative to preoperative disc height was 13.5%, ROM decreased to 6.8 degrees. The rate of degeneration or breakages of the end plates was 64.7% (22/34), implant device migrations were observed in 25 patients.</p><p><b>CONCLUSIONS</b>The mid- or long-term outcome of PDN replacement in the treatment of degenerative lumbar disc disease is not as encouraging as that of the short-term follow-up. It is neither effective in term of restoration of the intervertebral disc height nor increase of the ROM of the operative segment, complication rates are significantly higher, and inferior results are to be expected. The selection of suitable surgical candidates and determination of valid indications for operative treatment are very important.</p>

Background and purpose:Vascular endothelial growth factor(VEGF) is a potent angiogenic mediator and angiogenesis has important effects on tumor growth and metastasis.The present study was to investigate the relationship between genetic polymorphism of VEGF and heredity risk factor of lung cancer.Methods:VEGF genotypes were determined by PCR-RFLP method in 171 patients with lung cancer and 172 healthy controls.Software PHASE 1.0 was used to construct the haplotypes of every individual.Unconditional logistic regression model was used to analyze the statistical association of genotypes or haplotypes in the two groups adjusted by gender and age. Results:Individuals with at least one-2578A allele had a significantly decreased risk of lung cancer compared with those carrying-2578CC genotype.When the analyses were stratified by gender,the combined-2578 CA and AA genotype,were associated with a considerably reduced risk of lung cancer(P=0.001,OR=0.303,95%CI=0.15 3-0.601).The distribution of the two haplotypes(936C/-2578C and 936C/-2578A) among overall lung cancer cases was significantly different from that among the controls(P=0.016,0R=0.317,95%CI=0.124-0.809 and P=0.018,OR=0.547, 95%CI=0.331-0.903).When the cases were categorized by tumor histology,the distribution of C-C haplotype in the adenocarcinoma(AC) group was associated with a substantially lowered risk of AC(P=0.004,0R=0.237,95%CI=0.090- 0.627),compared with the reference haplotypes.Conclusion:VEGF polymorphism may be a critical risk for the genetic risk factor to lung cancer.
