ABSTRACT

Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of total scapular arthroplasty after total scapulectomy for scapular tumors. Methods: A clinical data of 17 patients with scapular tumors treated with total scapulectomy and total scapular arthroplasty between January 2010 and December 2017 were retrospectively reviewed. There were 9 males and 8 females with an average age of 34.4 years (range, 13-64 years). Seven patients were diagnosed with chondrosarcoma, 3 with osteosarcoma, 2 with Ewing's sarcoma, 1 with high-grade sarcoma, 1 with polymorphic dedifferentiated sarcoma, 1 with fibrosarcoma, 1 with plasmacytoma, and 1 with bone giant cell tumor. According to the surgical staging system described by Enneking et al, 1 patient was rated as stage 3, 8 as stageⅠB, 8 as stageⅡB. According to the classifications of shoulder girdle resections of Malawer et al, 11 patients were type ⅢB, 5 were type ⅣB, 1 was type ⅥB. The disease duration ranged from 0.5 to 8.0 months (mean, 3.2 months) and tumor size ranged from 11.0 cm×7.5 cm×6.0 cm to 18.5 cm×18.0 cm×12.5 cm. The 1993 Musculoskeletal Tumor Society (MSTS) upper limb function scoring system and shoulder mobility were used to evaluate postoperative shoulder joint function. Tumor recurrence and metastases were monitored by radiograph. Results: Poor superficial incision healing occurred in 1 patient, the rest incisions achieved healing by first intention. All patients were followed up 20-72 months (mean, 45.4 months). Two of the 17 patients died of multiple organ dysfunction syndrome caused by tumor metastases; 3 patients suffered from pulmonary metastases and were alive with disease. No local recurrence occurred in all patients. The overall survival rate was 88.2% (15/17) and the disease-free survival rate was 70.6% (12/17). Rib fracture after trauma, aseptic loosening, and atrophy of the deltoid muscle occurred in 1, 1, and 1 case, respectively. The other related complication was not observed. At last follow-up, the MSTS score was 26.1±1.4, and the flexion, extension, and abduction range of motion of shoulder joint were (70.0±7.5), (31.2±11.3), and (54.4 ±12.5) °, respectively. Conclusion: Reconstruction with total scapular arthroplasty after total scapulectomy can obtain a satisfactory shoulder contour and an acceptable functional outcomes in patients with scapular tumors.

ABSTRACT

Objective To explore the effects of curdione on cognitive function and expression of inflammatory factors in the hippocampus after partial hepatectomy in aged mice.Methods The animals were divided into control group, sham group, operation group, and high-, medium-and low-dose curdione groups.The model of partial hepatectomy in aged mice was established according to the method reported in literature.The levels of SOD, MDA, CAT and GSH-Px in the hippocampus were detected by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), while the expressions of NF-κB, IL-1β, IL-6 and TNF-α were measured by Western blot.Results The escape latency was significantly increased (P<0.01), and the number of platform-site crossovers was significantly decreased in operation group (P<0.05).Compared with those in operation group, curdione significantly decreased escape latency and increased platform-site crossovers (P<0.05, P<0.05).The levels of SOD, CAT and GSH-Px in the hippocampus were significantly decreased (P<0.05) and the content of MDA was significantly increased after partial hepatectomy (P<0.01), and these were reversed by curdione (P<0.05, P<0.05, respectively).The expressions of NF-κB, IL-1β, IL-6 and TNF-α protein were significantly inhibited by curdione (P<0.05).Conclusion Curdione can significantly improve cognitive dysfunction after partial hepatectomy in aged mice and the mechanism may be related to its inhibition of oxidative stress, inhibition of NF-κB activation and reduction of inflammatory cytokines IL-1β, IL-6 and TNF-α in the hippocampus.

ABSTRACT

Objective To determine whether rs28364072 polymorphism in the low-affinity IgE receptor (FCER2)is associated with asthma risk in Chinese Han nationality asthmatics.Methods 120 cases of asthmatics and 116 healthy control subjects were enrolled in this study.DNA was purified from peripheral blood,and genotyping of rs28364072 SNP was performed by PCR and Sanger sequencing.The clinical indexes were compared between asthmatic subjects.Results A significant difference was found in the distributions of the genotyges (TT,TC,CC)and allele frequency among populations in north Indian,Saudi Arabian,Romas and Chinese Han nationality.A significant difference was also found in the distributions of the genotyges (TT,TC,CC) between asthmatic subjects and controls.Significant difference was observed in the allele (T/C) frequency between asthmatic subjects and healthy controls.The presence of C allele of GLCCI1 gene was found to be a greater risk factor in asthmaticsubjects compared with the healthy controls.The odds ratio (OR) of CC and CC+TC were 2.73 (1.19 ~ 6.23),2.05 (1.21 ~ 3.48),respectively.There was significant difference in the ACT score,EOS% between CC and TT genotyge.Conclusion The minor alleles C of rs28364072 SNP was significantly associated with the increase of asthma risk in asthma patients of of Han Nationality of Chinese.

ABSTRACT

Objective To characterize the neuraminidase (NA) genes of influenza B virus in Shangrao.Methods The specimens of nasopharyngeal swabs were collected from patients with influenza-like symptoms in influenza sentinel hospital.Seven strains of influenza B virus were randomly selected for culture and isolation in Madin-Darby Canine Kidney Epithelial Cells (MDCK Line).Viral RNA was extracted.Fragments of NA genes were amplified by one-step RT-PCR and then were sequenced.The data obtained were analyzed with software DNAStar 6.0 and Mage 5.0.The deduced amino acid sequences were examined to explore the features ofNA gene.Results The NA gene showed high homology ofnucleotides between the 7 strains of influenza B virus.No amino acid substitution was found in catalytic or framework residues of the deduced amino acid sequences of NA gene.Conclusions All the 7 strains of influenza B virus were sensitive to neuraminidase inhibitors.However,ongoing resistance surveillance is necessary for control and prevention of influenza.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJEVTIVE</b>To evaluate the therapeutic effects of different therapeutic regimens for non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with or without EML4-ALK rearrangement.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>Twenty-one ALK-positive and 50 ALK-negative NSCLC patients who received voluntarily EML4-ALK testing and 75 NSCLC patients without AL testing were enrolled in this study. The 3 groups of patients received different treatments, and the therapeutic effects, progression-free survival (PFS), and treatment-related adverse events were analyzed.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>Crizotinib treatment obviously prolonged the PFS in EML4-ALK-positive patients with an objective response rate (OOR) of 61.9% and a median response duration of 16 months, which were significantly better than those in with ALK-negative patients and patients without ALK testing who received different second-line therapies.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>Crizotinib is superior to platinum-based chemotherapy in NSCLC patients with ALK rearrangement. ALK rearrangement id not a modifier of the effect of chemotherapy regimens in NSCLC patients.</p>
