Objective:To investigate the clinical and genetic features in a family with type 2 congenital generalized lipodystrophy, and to improve the understanging of this disease.Methods:The clinical symptoms, results of the laboratory, and radiography examinations of the patient and his family members were analyzed. The whole exome sequencing and Sanger validation were used to determine the genetic cause of the disease.Results:Generalized lipodystrophy, impaired liver function, severe hypertriglyceridemia, and acanthosis nigricans were found in the proband. His serum leptin level was much lower than normal value. The proband and three members of this family were confirmed to have insertion mutation at exon 5 of BSCL2 gene. The site was mutated from TTC to TCGGTC, resulting in the replacement of glutamate by aspartate and arginine. The mutation in proband was homozygote, and his father, mother, and brother were heterozygous.Conclusions:The mutation in exon 5 c. 545_546insCCG of BSCL2 gene leads to the occurrence of type 2 congenital generalized lipodystrophy.

Objective The role of this essay is to explore the relationship of BIM deletion polymorphism and paclitaxel intrinsic resistance in breast cancer. Methods Human breast cancer cell lines were screened by techniques of PCR and gene sequencing to detect BIM deletion polymorphism.MTS was used to detect the cytotoxic effects of paclitaxel in different cell lines. Meanwhile,levels of BIM mRNA and protein were detected by rtPCR and Western Blot. Results Comparing with the wild type cell line(MCF7),T47D was a deletion cell line with BIM deletion polymorphism and resistant to paclitaxel(T47D vs.MCF-7,IC50>30le vs.IC50=0.16 vs.02 μmol/L). Moreover,the ratio of BIM EXON3 to EXON4 was significantly increased and the level of functional BIM protein was down-regulated in T47D compared with MCF7(P < 0.05). Conclusion BIM deletion polymorphism might initiate intrinsic resistance to paclitaxel therapy in breast cancer.

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To analyze the clinical features, therapeutic methods and prognosis of primary breast lymphoma (PBL).</p><p><b>METHODS</b>Twenty-one PBL patients treated in Ruijin Hospital from January 2003 to December 2013 were included in this study, with 17 diffuse large cell lymphoma (DLBCL), 1 mucosa-associated lymphoid tumor (MALT), 1 follicular lymphoma (FL), 1 Burkitt lymphoma and 1 subcutaneous peniculitis T-cell lymphoma according to the WHO 2008 classification. Of 21 patients, only one patient with MALT has bulged tumor mass (>7 cm), other patients had tumor mass <5 cm. Six patients had core needle biopsy of tumor, 2 modified radical operation, and others tumor excision for diagnosis. All the patients received chemotherapy. The impacts of surgery, rituximab and prophylaxis with lumbar puncture on the outcomes of patients were analyzed. Survival was estimated using Kaplan-Meier method and compared by log-rank test. All the results were analyzed by SPSS 10.0.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>Among 21 PBL patients, 19 achieved complete remission (CR), 1 partial remission (PR) and 1 disease progression (PD). Followed-up till July 2014, with median follow-up of 14 months (6-75 months), only one patient died, with 3-year survival of 92.3%. Compared with chemotherapy alone, the progression-free survival (PFS) of combination therapy (surgery plus chemotherapy) was significant longer (P=0.015), but without statistic differences of CR rate and overall survival (OS) between two groups. Among the 20 patients with CD20-positive tumor cells, 17 received Rituximab. PFS and OS, as well as CR rate of PBL had no difference between the treatment with and without Rituximab. The incidence of central nervous system (CNS) infiltration had no difference between patients with and without CNS prophylaxis through lumber-puncture and intrathecal injection.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>With the common subtype of DLBCL, PBL patients had good outcome. Surgery, as a method to obtain tumor samples for diagnosis, could not prolong OS of patients. Therefore, radical operation shouldn't be recommended. PBL was reported to have high risk of CNS events, but prophylaxis with lumber puncture and intrathecal injection couldn't decrease the incidence of CNS infiltration.</p>

BACKGROUND:In recent years, the application of stem cel s to treat autoimmune diseases has become a hot spot. But, studies on umbilical cord blood mesenchymal stem cel s transplantation for the treatment of polymyositis/dermatomyositis are rarely reported. OBJECTIVE:To explore the immunologic mechanism of Th cytokines on the occurrence and development of polymyositis/dermatomyositis by observing the changes in serum interferon-γ, interleukin-4 and interleukin-17 in patients after umbilical cord blood mesenchymal stem cel s transplantation. METHODS:Eighty-one polymyositis/dermatomyositis patients were selected and divided into conventional therapy group (n=44) undergoing glucocorticoid and immunosuppressants therapy and cel transplantation group (n=37) undergoing intravenous infusion of umbilical cord blood mesenchymal stem cel s at a density of (3.5-5.2 )×107 . Dosing regimen was same in the two groups. After fol ow-up of 1, 3, 6 months, the changes of creatine kinase and myodynamia were evaluated;after fol ow-up of 3 and 6 months, lung imaging was evaluated;in the cel transplantation group, interferon-γ, interleukin-4 and interleukin-17 levels were detected before treatment and at 3 and 6 months after treatment. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION:At 1, 3, 6 months after treatment, the creatine kinase level was significantly decreased, and the muscle force grade was significantly increased in both groups (both P0.05). These findings indicate umbilical cord blood mesenchymal stem cel s transplantation combined with glucocorticoid and immunosuppressants therapy can adjust immune network effects and improve the immune tolerance in polymyositis/dermatomyositis patients, which is safe and effective.

Objective To investigate the effect of radiofrequency ablation(RFA) in the treatment of small liver cancer.Methods In recent 6 years,130 patients with primary or secondary liver cancer(≤5cm in diameter)were treated by RFA,among which 86 cases were primary,and 44 cases were secondary liver cancer.Among the 130 cases,18 received RFA plus TAEC,and 20 had RFA combined with PEI.Results Overall 1-and 3-year survival rate was 91.3% and 77.7% respectively.Complications occurred in 7 cases,including biliary fistula,intestinal fistula,and slight burn of skin.There was no death in this series.Conclusions RFA is an effective and safe therapeutic approach for small liver cancer ≤5cm in diameter.Its effect may be similar to that of surgical resection.
