ABSTRACT

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a chronic neurodegenerative disease. At present, levodopa and other drugs are mainly used for dopamine supplementation therapy. However, the absorption of levodopa in the gastrointestinal tract is unstable and its half-life is short, and long-term use of levodopa will lead to the end-of-dose deterioration, dyskinesia, the "ON-OFF" phenomenon and other symptoms. Therefore, new preparations need to be developed to improve drug efficacy, reduce side effects or improve compliance of patients. Based on the above clinical needs, this review briefly introduced the preparation modification strategies for the treatment of PD through case analysis, in order to provide references for the research and development of related preparations.

ABSTRACT

Objective To explore the dynamic changes and mechanisms of neurological and cognitive functions in mice with traumatic brain injury (TBI). Methods Totally 60 12⁃month⁃old Balb/ c mice were divided into control group (10 in group) and TBI group (50 in group). TBT model mice were divided into 5 subgroups according to the time of model construction, including model 1 day, model 1 day, model 3 day, model 7 day, model 14 days and model 28 days group with 10 in each group. At the 29th day of the experiment, neurological scores and step down tests were carried out. After the test, the mice were sacrificed for brains which were detected by immunohistochemistry staining, inflammatory cytokine tests and Western blotting. Results Compared with the control group, the neurological scores of mice in TBI group increased, and then decreased after the 7th day when the scores reached the peak. However, the latency of step down errors was lower than control group, and the number of step down errors was higher than control group which had no changes. Compared with the control group, the expression of lonized calcium⁃binding adapter molecule 1(IBA1), chemokine C⁃X3⁃C⁃motif ligand1 (CX3CL1), C⁃X3⁃C chemokine receptor 1(CX3CR1), NOD⁃like receptor thermal protein domain associated protein 3 (NLRP3), and phosphorylation nuclear factor(p⁃NF)⁃κB in TBI group increased and reached to the peak at the 7th day, and then started to decrease. At the same time, the levels of inflammatory cytokines interleukin⁃6(IL⁃6) and tumor necrosis factor⁃α(TNF⁃α) first increased to the peak, and then began to decrease. However, compared with the control group, the expression of amyloid β(Aβ) protein and p⁃Tau protein in the model group continued to increase at all time. Conclusion The TBI model caused continuous activation of microglia along with inflammatory response, which first increased and then decreased, resultsing in neurological scores changes. In addition, the inflammatory response may act as a promoter of Aβ protein deposition and Tau protein phosphorylation, leading to cognitive impairment in mice.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To retrospectively analyse the efficacy of surgerical comprehensive treatment for hypopharyngeal cancer. Methods: Four hundred and fifty-six cases of hypopharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma treated from Jan 2014 to Dec 2019 were analyzed retrospectively, including 432 males and 24 females, aged 37-82 years old. There were 328 cases of pyriform sinus carcinoma, 88 cases of posterior pharyngeal wall carcinoma, and 40 cases of postcricoid carcinoma. According to American Joint Committe on Cancer(AJCC) 2018 criteria, 420 cases were of stage Ⅲ or Ⅳ; 325 cases were of T3 or T4 stage. Treatment methods included surgery alone in 84 cases, preoperative planned radiotherapy plus surgery in 49 cases, surgery plus adjuvant radiotherapy or concurrent chemoradiotherapy in 314 cases, and inductive chemotherapy plus surgery and adjuvant radiotherapy in 9 cases. The primary tumor resection methods included transoral laser surgery in 5 cases, partial laryngopharyngectomy in 74 cases, of them 48 cases (64.9%) presented with supracricoid hemilaryngopharyngectomy, total laryngectomy with patial pharyngectomy in 90 cases, total laryngopharyngectomy or with cervical esophagectomy in 226 cases, and total laryngopharyngectomy with total esophagectomy in 61 cases. Among 456 cases, 226 cases received reconstruction surgery with free jejunum transplantation, 61 cases with gastric pull-up, and 32 cases with pectoralis myocutaneous flaps. All patients underwent retropharyngeal lymph node dissection, and high-definition gastroscopy was performed during admission and follow-up. SPSS 24.0 software was used to analyze the data. Results: The 3-year and 5-year overall survival rates were respectively 59.8%, and 49.5%. The 3-year and 5-year disease specific survival rates were respectively 69.0% and 58.8%. Total metastasis rate of retropharyngeal lymph nodes was 12.7%. A total of 132 patients (28.9%) suffered from simultaneous and metachronous multiple primary carcinoma of the hypopharynx. Multivariate Logistic regression analysis showed that T3-4 disease, cervical lymph node metastasis, retropharyngeal lymph node metastasis and postoperative adjuvant radiotherapy were independent factors affecting the prognosis of patients (all P<0.05). As of April 30, 2022, a total of 221 patients died during follow-up, of 109 (49.3%) with distant metastases, which were the main cause of death. Conclusions: The efficacy of comprehensive treatment for hypopharyngeal cancer can be improved by accurate preoperative evaluation, improved surgical resection, active retropharyngeal lymph node dissection and full process intervention of the second primary cancer.

ABSTRACT

Liver transplantation is one of the best approaches for the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma. The concept of transplant oncology could shed light on the whole process management of hepatocellular carcinoma patients. The success rate of operation and perioperative safety were the major concerns in the past, whereas the focus of treatment is gradually shifting to cancer treatment and improving patient survival and quality of life, with the promotion of neoadjuvant and postoperative adjuvant therapy for hepatocellular carcinoma. The prognosis of different group of patients might be heterogeneous. Therefore, refined stratification should be carried out for heterogeneous patients before and after liver transplantation to achieve the best prognosis. The present study classified patients for three clusters: primary hepatocellular carcinoma patients within the transplant criteria, hepatocellular carcinoma recurrence after liver resection, and patients after down-staging or neoadjuvant therapy. Fine stratified management are essential for the whole process management in the new era of transplant oncology.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To compare the inhibitory effect of human CD55(hCD55)expressed on porcine peripheral blood mononuclear cells(PBMC)on rabbit complement-and human complement-dependent cytotoxicity(CDC).Methods:Three α1, 3-galactosyltransferase gene knockout(GTKO)pigs from the same strain were selected.Two were transferred with hCD55 gene.According to the expression level of hCD55, the animals were divided into three groups of GTKO, GTKO/hCD55 Low(low-expression of hCD55)and GTKO/hCD55 High(high-expression of hCD55). After PBMC from these pigs were incubated with complement-inactivated pooled human serum(20 cases), rabbit complement-or human complement-dependent cytotoxicity and binding of antibodies(IgM/G)to pig PBMC were detected by flow cytometry. Results:No significant difference existed in binding of human serum xenoreactive antibodies to PBMC from three groups.The cytotoxicity to GTKO pig PBMC mediated by rabbit complement or human complement were 98.97%±0.50% and 82.73%±3.20% respectively.Both values were quite high.Compared with GTKO group, a low expression of hCD55 had no significant inhibitory effect on rabbit complement-dependent cytotoxicity(97.07%±2.25% vs. 98.9%±0.50%, P=0.2 267) while a high expression of hCD55 exerted a mild inhibitory effect on rabbit complement-dependent cytotoxicity(81.70%±5.86% vs. 98.9%±0.50%, P=0.0 355). Differently, a low expression of hCD55 had a potent inhibitory effect on human complement-dependent cytotoxicity(23.83%±3.53% vs. 82.73%±3.20%, P<0.0 001). Compared with hCD55 low-expression group, a high expression of hCD55 had a further inhibitory effect on human complement-dependent cytotoxicity(2.79%±0.45% vs. 82.73%±3.20%, P=0.009), attaining the level of negative control group.The inhibitory effect of low/high expression of hCD55 on human complement-mediated CDC was significantly better than that on rabbit complement-mediated CDC. Conclusions:Compared with traditional CDC counterpart using rabbit complement, modified CDC technology of commercial standard human complement is recommended for evaluating the regulatory effect of hCD55 expressed on cell surface from GTKO/hCD55 genetically engineered pigs.It thus provides experimental rationales for establishing a novel CDC experimental system of effectively evaluate the function of hCD55 after xenotransplantation.

ABSTRACT

This paper summaries the Risk of Bias in Non-randomized Studies-of Environmental Exposure (ROBINS-E), a tool for evaluating risk of bias about non-randomized studies of exposures (NRSE), and introduces the application of ROBINS-E in a published NRSE. According to the characteristics of NRSE, evaluation fields and signaling questions were designed in ROBINS-E to provide essential information about risk of bias for NRSE included in systematic reviews and GRADE. ROBINS-E is the tool in assessment of risk of bias in observational studies and quasi-randomized studies. Although the tool has been used in practice to some extent, but it still needs further improvement. Attention should be paid to its update and progress.

ABSTRACT

Fracture healing is a complex biological process. After a fracture, a hematoma will first form at the injured site, and immune cells and inflammatory factors will quickly reach the fracture site to facilitate the repair and reconstruction of bone tissue. Immune cells and inflammatory factors are an important part of the body's immune system, and the immune system plays a key role in removing necrotic tissue and maintaining the homeostasis of the body's environment. Proper immune regulation after a fracture is beneficial to fracture healing; if immune regulation is improper, the fracture site will gradually develop into a chronic inflammatory state, which may impair healing. The authors summarize the mechanism of action of the innate immune system and adaptive immune system in fracture healing, as well as the research progress of therapeutic drugs that affect the state of the immune system and thus affect the healing of fractures, so as to deepen the understanding of the immune system affecting bone regeneration and provide new ideas for clinical treatment of fracture.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To investigate the intervention effect of ventricular zone expressed PH domain-containing 1 (VEPH1) on epithelial mesenchymal transition (EMT) and proliferation of human cutaneous melanoma (CM) cells based onthe transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) signaling pathway.Methods:The melanoma cells were cultured in vitro. After transfecting the melanoma cells with overexpression or interference plasmids of VEPH1 or TGF-β overexpression plasmids, or treating the cells with SB-431542 (TGF-β pathway inhibitor), we detected the expression of genes and proteins relevant to VEPH1, TGF-β, and EMT by quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) and Western blot to observe the effect of these proteins on CM cell proliferation. Results:qRT-PCR results showed that the expression of VEPH1 in melanoma cells (B16-BL6, B16 and A375 cells) was significantly lower than that in HaCaT cells, and the lowest expression was found in A375 cells, so A375 cells were selected for follow-up experiments. After transfection with VEPH1 overexpression plasmid or SB-431542, the mRNA and protein expression of E-cadherin in A375 cells were significantly increased, the mRNA and protein expressions of TGF-β, Smad4, N-cadherin and vimentin were significantly decreased, and the cell proliferation was significantly decreased ( P<0.05). Compared with the VEPH1 vector group, the expression of TGF-β, Smad4 and N-cadherin in the VEPH1 vector+ SB-431542 group was significantly reduced ( P<0.05); the expression of E-cadherin was increased, and the cell proliferation was also significantly decreased ( P<0.05). The expression of TGF-β, Smad4, N-cadherin and vimentin were increased after co-transfection with VEPH1 vector, while the expression of E-cadherin was decreased, and the cell proliferation was also enhanced ( P<0.05). The expression of VEPH1 in A375 cells was significantly decreased after transfection with si-VEPH1 plasmid, while that in SB-431542 and TGF-β vector group was not significantly decreased. Conclusions:VEPH1 can inhibit human CM cells by the intervention on TGF-β signaling pathway. This study reveals the potential of VEPH1 as a diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic target for CM.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To investigate the differences of psychological condition of erectile dysfunction (ED) patients in different age groups.Methods:The emotion, personality and interpersonal relationship outpatients with ED were evaluated by the method of Symptom Checklist-90 (SCL-90), State Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) and Eysenck Personality Questionnaire (EPQ). A retrospective analysis was conducted and a total of 401 ED patients (aged 20-60) were divided into 4 groups [20-29(n=158), 30-39(n=182), 40-49(n=38), 50-60 (n=23)years old] from July 2018 to July 2019. The erectile function of the patients was evaluated by the international erectile function scale (IIEF-5). The symptoms of hostility, anxiety, psychotic, horrible, paranoid, obsession, somatization, interpersonal relationship and depression were evaluated by SCL-90. Furthermore, STAI was used to distinguish whether the patients had state or trait anxiety. Then EPQ was used to analyze the personality types of patients. The differences of SCL-90, STAI and EPQ between the patients and the national norm group were analyzed by the two sample t-test. The variance analysis was conducted to compare the score differences of scales among different age groups of ED patients. The chi square test was conducted to compare the distribution differences of personality types among different age groups. Results:The scores of hostility(1.64±0.67, t=4.81, P<0.001), anxiety(1.58±0.66, t=6.83, P<0.001), psychotic(1.62±0.68, t=11.87, P<0.001), paranoid(1.55±0.66, t=3.58, P=0.0004), obsession(1.95±0.70, t=9.56, P<0.001), somatization(1.43±0.58, t=2.10, P=0.036), interpersonal relationship(1.74±0.74, t=2.79, P=0.005), depression (1.66±0.74, t=4.50, P<0.001)and the total scores (1.53±0.63, t=3.07, P=0.002)of SCL-90 in the patient group were significantly higher than those of the national norm group, and there were significant differences in the scores of interpersonal relationship among different age groups(1.72±0.78, 1.65±0.69, 1.58±0.92, 1.43±0.59, F=2.84, P=0.038). The scores of state anxiety( t=7.35, P<0.001), trait anxiety ( t=6.31, P<0.001)and the total scores ( t=8.41, P<0.001)of STAI in the patient group were significantly higher than those of the national norm, and there were significant differences in the scores of state anxiety( F=5.29, P=0.001), trait anxiety ( F=5.54, P<0.001)and total scores ( F=5.66, P<0.001)among different age groups. There were significant increases in the scores of psychoticism( t=30.56, P<0.001), emotion( t=45.94, P<0.001), extraversion and introversion( t=11.72, P<0.001), concealment factors ( t=29.16, P<0.001)and total scores ( t=30.56, P<0.001)in the patient group. The proportion of depressive personality was highest in the ED patients(n=183; 45.64%), but there was no significant difference in the distribution of personality types among different age groups[20-29(depressive, choleric, mucinous and sanguine): 76, 35, 26, 21; 30-39: 87, 40, 32, 23; 40-49: 14, 10, 6, 8; 50-60: 6, 9, 2, 6; χ 2=10.65, P=0.30]. Conclusions:ED patients have a series of abnormal emotions, somatized discomfort, sensitive interpersonal relationships, introverted and unstable emotionally personality characteristics. In addition, the younger the patients are, the more serious their anxiety are, the more sensitive their interpersonal relationships are, which may be related to their introverted personality characteristics and emotional instability.

ABSTRACT

At present, the prevention and control of the COVID-19 is still severe, its pathogen SARS-CoV-2 is highly infectious and pathogenic, and the population is generally susceptible. In order to deal with the epidemic, selective operation can be postponed, but most of the patients with acute abdominal diseases are commonly in clinic, with acute onset and severe condition, and most of them are accompanied with fever and gastrointestinal symptoms, so emergency operation is needed.Under the condition of the current epidemic—COVID-19, it requires a higher standard to diagnose and treat patients with acute abdomen. The first step is to carry out procedures to identify whether the patient is infected or not. Those who are not infected can go through the normal treating procedures.For patients diagnosed with COVID-19 or suspected patients, the second step is to achieve classified diagnoses and treatments, and to adopt a treating plan that integrates TCM and western medicine.In order to protect patients and medical staff, the COVID-19 in hospital transmission must be avoided. For patients with COVID-19 who need emergency surgery, we must strictly comply with the hospital's protection regulations, closely coordinate the relevant departments of surgery, perform the three-level protection, operate in accordance with the principle of damage control in the negative pressure surgery room, and return to the isolation ward according to the prevention and control process after operation. For units without surgical conditions, patients should be transferred to hospital in time on the premise of maximum damage control, and patients must not be delayed for timely diagnosis and treatment due to the epidemic.

ABSTRACT

The quality of traditional Chinese medicine tablets is correlated with clinical efficacy and drug safety, and plays a great role in promoting the development of traditional Chinese medicine. However, the existing traditional artificial identification and modern instrument detection in terms of accuracy and timeliness have both advantages and disadvantages. Therefore, how to quickly and accurately identify the quality of traditional Chinese medicine tablets has become a high-profile issue. The purpose of this paper is to explore the feasibility of the application of electronic eye technology in the study of rapid identification of traditional Chinese medicine quality. A total of 80 batches of samples were collected and tested by Fritillariae Cirrhosae Bulbus for traditional empirical identification(M_1) and modern pharmacopeia(M_2). The optical data was collected from electronic eyes, and the chemical metrology was used to establish suitable discrimination models(M_3). Four authenticity and commodity specification models, namely identification analysis(DA), minimum bidirectional support vector machine(LS-SVM), partial minimum two-multiplier analysis(PLS-DA), main component analysis identification analysis(PCA-DA), were established, respectively. The accuracies of the authenticity identification models were 82.5%, 90.0%, 96.2% and 93.8%, while the accuracies of the commodity specification identification models were 89.3%, 96.0%, 90.7% and 97.3%, respectively. The models were well judged, the authenticity identification was based on the final identification model of PLS-DA, and the commodity specification was based on the final identification model of PCA-DA. There was no significant difference between its accuracy and M_1, and the time of determination was much shorter than M_2(P<0.01). Therefore, electronic-eye technology could be used for the rapid identification of the quality of Fritillariae Cirrhosae Bulbus.

ABSTRACT

Objective • To investigate the influence of smoking on acute myocardial injury and long-term prognosis in the patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infraction (STEMI) by cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR). Methods • Three hundred and forty-nine STEMI patients were retrospectively selected from a prospective cohort from May 2012 to August 2017, and were followed up for at least 2 years. The primary endpoint was a composite of all-cause death, reinfarction and stroke. The secondary endpoint was heart failure rehospitalization. The patients were divided into smoker group and non-smoker group according to the baseline status of smoking which was recorded at admission. The difference in the incidence of endpoint events was further analyzed in combination with the presence or absence of intramyocardial hemorrhage (IMH) between the two groups. Results • There were 221 patients in the smoker group, accounting for 63.3% of the total sample. The average age of onset in smokers were 4.66 years earlier than nonsmokers. However, smokers showed a lower incidence of left ventricular thrombosis and lower levels of brain natriuretic peptide than non-smokers (P=0.023, P=0.000). There was no difference in the left ventricular ejection fraction between the two groups (P>0.05), but the smokers had a better endsystolic and end-diastolic volume index (P=0.019, P=0.007). Smokers and non-smokers had similar clinical outcomes of all-cause death, reinfarction and stroke (P>0.05). The incidence of heart failure rehospitalization in smokers was quite lower than that of the non-smokers, but this kind of protective effect disappeared after differences in baseline being adjusted (P=0.167). In the patients with IMH, smoking had a protective effect on primary endpoints (HR=0.266, P=0.008), but in the patients without IMH, smokers had a worse outcome of all-cause death and reinfarction than non-smokers (P=0.024). Conclusion • In patients with STEMI, smoking has no protective effect on long-term prognosis. When IMH appears in STEMI patients, smoking has a protective effect on all-cause death, reinfarction and stoke. However, in patients without IMH, smokers have a worse prognosis than non-smokers.

ABSTRACT

Hypoxia-activated prodrugs that specifically target tumor tissues were designed by attaching the nitro-aromatic ring carrier molecules that can be degraded in the hypoxic microenvironment of the tumor to the hydroxyamidine group of IDO1 inhibitor compound B and epacadostat. Eleven prodrug compounds were synthesized and their structures were confirmed by 1H NMR and HR-MS. Compounds F-1 and F-6, which had a higher stability and drug release rate, were identified by an in vitro stability assay, nitroreductase reduction assay, MTT assay, and an in vivo tumor tissue hypoxia degradation assay, and then evaluated for anti-tumor efficacy in vivo. The results showed that prodrug F-1 inhibited tumor growth by 67.41%, which was significantly higher than 42.31% for the starting drug group. It appeared that the inhibition of IDO1 in the tumor tissue was different from the overall inhibition of IDO1 in vivo. Animal treatment procedures were carried out with the approval of the Animal Care and Use Committee of the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking Union Medical College.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND@#Circulating tumor cells (CTC) play an important role in the screening and prognosis of lung cancer, but the low efficiency and specificity of CTC isolation obviously restrict its clinical application. The purpose of this study is to explore a new and efficient isolation method of CTC in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in order to achieve the purpose of early diagnosis of NSCLC.@*METHODS@#Three kinds of immunolipid magnetic spheres of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), vimentin and folic acid (FA) were prepared by thin film method. After characterization, the sorting scheme of cell line was explored, the optimal sorting scheme of NSCLC CTC was constructed, and its clinical application value was studied.@*RESULTS@#The average capture efficiency of EGFR, Vimentin and FA magnetic spheres used alone and in combination to lung cancer cell lines was 78%, 79%, 82% and 91%, respectively. In 60 patients with lung cancer, using 2 CTC per 7.5 mL blood as cutoff value, the positive rates of EGFR, Vimentin and FA magnets used alone and in combination were 65.0%, 33.3%, 93.3% and 100%, respectively. It was also found that the number of CTC detected by combined use of the three magnetic spheres was correlated with clinical stages (P<0.05).@*CONCLUSIONS@#The combination of three kinds of magnetic spheres can separate EGFR+, Vimentin+, FA+ expressed CTC, which is beneficial to the downstream analysis of CTC correlation. This study provides a new method to improve the efficiency of NSCLC CTC capture, and verifies that the captured CTC counting method can be used in the auxiliary diagnosis of lung cancer.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate the value of transcranial Doppler ultrasonography(TCD)for assessing the cerebrovascular reactivity (CVR)in obstructive sleep apneahypopnea syndrome (OSAHS)patients.Methods Sixty OSAHS outpatients and inpatients admitted to our neurology department from August 2015to December 2016served as an OSAHS group,then further divided into mild group(n=15),moderate group(n=27)and severe group(n=18)according to apneahypopnea index(AHI).Meanwhile,20healthy individuals served as a control group.They underwent TCD on admission to detect their CVR,including the average velocity of cerebral artery blood flow(Vm)during calm breathing and after breath holding.The breath holding index(BHI) was calculed.The relationship between BHI and CVR was analized by pearson linear correlation analysis. Results There was no statistically significant difference in Vm during calm breathing between the OSAHS and control groups(73.64±9.87cm/s vs 72.79±8.68cm/s,P>0.05).Both of Vm after breath holding and BHI of the OSAHS group were lower than those of the control group(88.63±6.65cm/s vs 93.26±7.12cm/s,0.71±0.16 vs 0.93±0.37,P<0.01).Both of Vm after breath holding and BHI of the mild group were the highest,while the severe group had the lowest values and the moderate group was in between(P<0.05).No significant correlation was found between AHI and Vm during calm breathing(r=0.197,P=0.052),while AHI was negatively correlated with Vm after breath holding and BHI(r=-0.557,P =0.011;r=-0.605,P=0.000).Conclusion TCD can detect CVR changes in OSAHS patients,whose Vm after breath holding and BHI decrease significantly.The more severe the OSAHS is,the lower the CVR is.
