ABSTRACT

Background: Hepatic encephalopathy (HE) is one of the main causes of death in patients with end-stage liver disease. Early evaluation of the condition of patients with liver cirrhosis complicated with HE is the key for improving the prognosis. Aims: To investigate the effects of controlling nutritional status (CONUT) and CTP score on predicting the short term prognosis of liver cirrhosis patients complicated with HE. Methods: The clinical data of 168 liver cirrhosis patients complicated with HE initially diagnosed in Nantong Third People's Hospital from January 2018 to December 2021 were enrolled and analyzed retrospectively. HE patients were divided into survival group and death group. Cox regression analysis was used to evaluate the risk factors affecting the prognosis. A new prediction model was established, and ROC curve was used to evaluate the values of different models for short⁃term prognosis of HE patients. Survival was evaluated by Kaplan⁃Meier method. Results: Compared with survival group, ALT, AST, TBIL, INR, white blood cell count, neutrophil were significantly increased in death group (P<0.05), while ALB, total cholesterol, serum Na, fibrinogen, lymphocyte were significantly decreased (P<0.05). CONUT (OR=1.499, 95% CI: 1.092⁃2.057, P=0.012), CTP score (OR=1.474, 95% CI: 1.178⁃1.844, P=0.001) were independent risk factors for 90⁃day mortality in liver cirrhosis patients complicated with HE. AUC of CTP, CONUT and CONUT⁃CTP scoring models were 0.90, 0.94 and 0.95, respectively. Kaplan⁃Meier analysis showed that the survival rate in CONUT⁃CTP≥7.50 group was significantly lower than that in <7.50 group (P<0.000 1). Conclusions: CONUT⁃CTP score has good predictive value for the prognosis of liver cirrhosis patients complicated with HE, CONUT⁃CTP ≥7.50 indicates poor prognosis.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To investigate the correlation between the expression of programmed death ligand-1 (PD-L1) and clinicopathological parameters and prognosis in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) tissues.Methods:From January 2008 to December 2016, 344 HCC patients underwent surgery in Nantong Third Hospital Affiliated to Nantong University were enrolled. The expression of PD-L1 in paraffin HCC tissues was detected by tissue microarray and immunohistochemistry. The correlation between the expression of PD-L1 in tumor cells, tumor-infiltrating immune cells and the clinicopathological parameters and prognosis of HCC patients were analyzed. And the related factors affecting the prognosis of patients were explored. Chi-square test, log-rank test and univariate and multivariate Cox regression analysis were used for statistical analysis.Results:Positive PD-L1 located in the membrane and/or cytoplasm of HCC tumor cells and tumor-infiltrating immune cells. The positive rate of PD-L1 expression in tumor cells was 21.8%(75/344). The expression of PD-L1 in tumor cells was related to histological grade and microvascular invasion, the positive rates of PD-L1 expression of patients with histological gradeⅠ, Ⅱ and Ⅲ were 7.7% (2/26), 16.5% (19/115) and 26.6% (54/203), respectively, the positive rates of PD-L1 expression of patients with or without microvascular invasion were 29.3% (34/116) and 18.0% (41/228), respectively, and the differences were statistically significant ( χ2=7.659 and 5.787, P=0.022 and 0.016). The positive expression rate of PD-L1 in tumor-infiltrating immune cells was 47.1% (162/344). The expression of PD-L1 in tumor-infiltrating immune cells was related with microvascular invasion, the positive rates of PD-L1 expression in patients with or without microvascular invasion were 56.9% (66/116) and 42.1% (96/228), respectively, and the differences were statistically significant ( χ2=6.751, P=0.009). The median survival time of patients with negative expression of PD-L1 in HCC tumor cells was 61 months (30 months, 92 months), while that of patients with positive PD-L1 expression was 16 months(6 months, 44 months), and the difference was statistically significant ( χ2=55.722, P<0.01). The expression of PD-L1 in HCC tumor cells was an independent risk factor affecting overall survival time (hazard ratio=3.090, P<0.01). Conclusions:The expression of PD-L1 in HCC tumor cells may be related to the malignancy and invasion of HCC, and may be a potential risk factor for prognosis.

ABSTRACT

Objective@#To investigate the tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily 1B gene (TNFRSF1B) polymorphism in relation to the outcomes of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection.@*Methods@#One thousand six hundred and forty-five cases without HCV infection, 545 cases with HCV clearance, and 783 cases with chronic HCV infection were enrolled. TaqMan probe method was used to investigate genotype rs1061622 (T > G) and rs1061624 (G > A). Two single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) sites were genotyped and haplotypes were constructed to evaluate their relation with the outcome of HCV infection.@*Results@#Logistic regression analysis showed that there was no relation to the two SNPs with HCV infection susceptibility and chronicity (P > 0.05). Haplotype analysis showed that carrier TA had an increased susceptibility to HCV infection [adjusted odds ratio (OR) = 1.15, 95% confidence interval (CI): 1.01 to 1.30, P = 0.038)]. Carrier TA and GG haplotypes were conducive to chronic HCV infection (adjusted OR = 1.28, 95% CI: 1.08 to 1.53, P = 0.006; OR = 1.31, 95% CI: 1.03 to 1.66, P = 0.026).@*Conclusion@#The combinational effects of rs1061622 and rs1061624 in TNFRSF1B gene may increase the risk of HCV chronicity and infection.

ABSTRACT

Objective@#To explore the relationship between the tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily members 11A (TNFRSF11A) and 11B (TNFRSF11B) gene polymorphisms and the outcome of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection.@*Methods@#In this case-control study, 749 cases of persistent HCV infection, 494 cases of spontaneous clearance and 1 486 control subjects were included from 2008 to 2016. TaqMan-MGB probe method was used to detect the genotype of TNFRSF11A rs1805034 and TNFRSF11B rs2073617. The genotypes distribution of the two single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) were analyzed in different populations.@*Results@#Co-dominant model showed that individuals carrying the rs2073617 CC genotype were prone to have chronic HCV infection, compared with individuals carrying the rs2073617 TT genotype (OR=1.517, 95%CI: 1.055-2.181, P=0.024). Recessive model results showed that individuals carrying rs2073617 CC genotype were more likely to develop chronic HCV infection compared with individuals carrying rs2073617 TT or TC genotype (OR=1.435, 95%CI: 1.033-1.996, P=0.032). Additive model showed that the risk for chronic HCV infection increased with the increase of the number of rs2073617 C alleles (OR=1.204, 95%CI: 1.013-1.431, P=0.035).@*Conclusion@#The genetic polymorphism of TNFRSF11B rs2073617 might be related with the chronicity of HCV infection.

ABSTRACT

Background and purpose: Arginase-1 (Arg-1) is an enzyme involved in the urea cycle. Research has shown that changed expression of Arg-1 plays an important role in the cellular metabolism and growth. The purpose of this research was to investigate the expression of Arg-1 in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and to analyze its correlation with clinicopathological features. Methods: The expression of Arg-1 protein and mRNA in 31 samples of HCC, paracancerous liver tissues and 12 samples of normal liver was detected by Western blot and reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). The expression profiles of Arg-1 at protein level in 158 samples of HCC and paracancerous liver tissues were detected with high-throughput tissue microarray technique and immunohistochemistry. The relationships between Arg-1 expression and clinicopathological features were also analyzed. Results:The expression of Arg-1 mRNA and protein was signiifcantly decreased in HCC compared with the paracancerous liver tissues and normal liver tissues (F=57.83, 160.89; all P<0.01). The expression of Arg-1 in HCC was related to differentiation degree (F=10.41, 30.03; all P<0.01). And with tumor differentiation decreased, the expression level down-regulated. Immunohistochemistry revealed that Arg-1 protein was mainly located in the cytoplasm and nuclear. The expression rates of Arg-1 were 88%, 98.7%and 100%in HCC, paracancerous tissues and normal liver tissues, respectively. Statistical analysis revealed that Arg-1 protein staining rate was signiifcantly lower in tumor tissues than that in paracancerous tissues (χ2=14.7416, P<0.01) and normal liver tissues (χ2=4.1415, P<0.05). The Arg-1 expression was correlated with differentiation degree of HCC, vascular invasion and recurrence after operation (χ2=22.8459, 10.2639, 10.6368 respectively;all P<0.05), but not correlated with age, gender, the hepatitis B virus, the level of serum AFP, liver cirrhosis, diameter of tumor and tumor number. Conclusion:The expression level of Arg-1 is much lower in HCC than that in the paracancerous liver and normal liver. Moreover, Arg-1 expression level is closely related to tumor differentiation degree, metastasis and relapse. These data demonstrate that Arg-1 may play a negative role in the development of HCC.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate the inhibitive effect of shRNA (short hairpin RNA) targeting APRIL gene on the pancreatic cancer cells in vitro and in vivo, in order to explore the feasibility of gene therapy for pancreatic cancer. Methods The LV-shAPRIL targeting APRIL gene had been constructed before, and was used to infect the CFPAC-1 cells. Cell proliferation and apoptosis were examined by MTT and flow cytometry. Then CFPAC-1 cells were used to construct the model of transplantation tumor into the nude mice, the tumor growth was assessed after LV-shAPRIL treatment. Results 96 hours after the LV-shAPRIL infection into CFPAC-1 cells, the cell proliferation was significantly inhibited when compared with control group and lentivirus infection group (P<0.05 ). Flow cytometry showed the apoptosis ratio of the CFPAC-1 cells was (17.35±0.96)% in LV-shAPRIL group, which was higher than that in control group and lentivirus infection group (P<0.05 ). After LV-shAPRIL injection into the model of nude mice, the tumor growth was slower than that in the two control groups. The tumor's volume of the LV-shAPRIL group was(821.8±123.3) mm3 and the mass was (2.16±0.18)g at 27 day, and were obviously depressed, when compared with two control groups (P±0.05). Conclusions LV-shAPRIL targeting APRIL gene can inhibit the growth of the CFPAC-1 cells in vitro and vivo. This may provide a new gene therapy approach for pancreatic cancer.
