ABSTRACT

Objective To study the effect of astragalus polysaccharides combined with hUSCs transplantation on type 2 diabetic rats. Methods Twenty-five SD rats were randomly selected into the normal control group, and the remaining 105 SD rats were used to establish type 2 diabetes model. The 100 rats successfully modeled were randomly divided into the diabetes group, astragalus polysaccharide treatment group, hUSCs treatment group, and astragalus polysaccharide+hUSCs treatment group, with 25 rats in each group. After 2 weeks of treatment, the FBG concentration, insulin and C-peptide concentrations, and body weight changes were measured in each group. The distribution and survival of PKH-26-labeled hUSCs in rat pancreatic tissue were observed by fluorescence microscopy. TUNEL method was used to detect the apoptosis of rat islet cells. Real-time quantitative PCR and Western Blot were used to detect the expression of TGF-β/Smad signaling pathway-related genes in rat pancreatic tissue. Results The FBG concentration of rats in the astragalus polysaccharide treatment group, hUSCs treatment group and astragalus polysaccharide +hUSCs treatment group were significantly decreased, and that in the combination treatment group was significantly lower those in the astragalus polysaccharide group and hUSCs group, and the differences were statistically significant ( all P<0 . 05 ) . Compared with the diabetic group , the insulin concentration, C-peptide concentration and body weight in the astragalus polysaccharide treatment group, hUSCs treatment group and combination treatment group rats were significantly increased, and those in the combination treatment group was significantly higher than those in the astragalus polysaccharide treatment group and in the hUSCs treatment group, the differences were statistically significant( all P<0.05). The results of fluorescence microscopy showed that the number of PKH-26 positive hUSCs in the combined treatment group was 74.64 ±9.75 in each high power field, which was significantly higher than that in the hUSCs treatment group (43.64±5.83), the difference was statistically significant (P<0.05). Compared with the diabetic group, the apoptotic rates of islet cells in the astragalus polysaccharide treatment group and the hUSCs treatment group were reduced, and the relative expressions levels of mRNA and protein of TGF-β1, Smad3, and Smad7 in the pancreatic tissue were also significantly reduced(all P<0.05). The reduction was more significant in the combination treatment group, and the differences were statistically significant (all P<0.05). Conclusions Astragalus polysaccharide combined with hUSCs transplantation can effectively reduce the FBG concentration, increase the concentration of insulin, C-peptide and body weight, reduce the apoptosis of pancreatic islet tissue, which may be related to the reduction of TGF-β/Smad in pancreatic tissue. Signaling pathways are involved in suppressing the inflammatory response.

ABSTRACT

Objective To clarify the role of nuclear factor κB(NF-κB) signaling pathway in pathogenesis of Kashin-Beck disease(KBD) by observing the expression of NF-κB p65 in the whole blood samples of patients with KBD and controls,and the expression of NF-κB p65 in C28/I2 chondrocyte, and to analyze the role of NF-κB p65 molecule in chondrocyte apoptosis. Methods Through a case-control study, 161 patients with KBD (KBD group) were selected from Xunyi, Yongshou, Changwu, Linyou, Qianyang and Long counties in KBD endemic areas and 312 healthy people(control group) were matched by age and sex in Shaanxi Province. Venous blood samples were collected from patients and healthy controls, which were anticoagulated and used for determination of NF-κB p65 protein.According to the group design,the model of C28/I2 chondrocyte oxidative damage was established.The experiments were divided into 4 groups including control group(C), tBHP injury group (O, tBHP 300.00 μmol/L), low selenium pre-protection group (OS1, 0.05 mg/L Na2SeO3+ 300.00 μmol/L tBHP), and middle selenium pre-protection group(OS2, 0.10 mg/L Na2SeO3+ 300.00 μmol/L tBHP). Then, cell apoptosis was detected by Hoechst 33342 and reactive oxygen species (ROS) was detected by dichlorfluorescein(DCF) method. The protein was extracted by Trizol method, then protein expression level of NF-κB p65 molecule was detected by Western blotting in whole blood samples and C28/I2 chondrocyte. Results The differences in age and sex were not statistically significant between KBD group and control group (t = 0.336, P > 0.05; χ2= 0.407, P > 0.05). The protein expression level of NF-κB p65 in KBD group was 1.835 times as high as that of control group (KBD:0.167 ± 0.026, control: 0.091 ± 0.014, t = 5.147, P < 0.01). Under the fluorescence microscope, chondrocyte showed strong blue fluorescence in tBHP group and the level of ROS(1.219 ± 0.104) was higher than those of low and middle selenium pre-protection groups(0.832 ± 0.077, 0.635 ± 0.070, P < 0.05).The protein expression level of NF-κB p65 in tBHP group (1.563 ± 0.351) was higher than that of control group (0.451 ± 0.069, P < 0.05), and protein levels of NF-κB p65 had a decreasing tendency in low and middle selenium pre-protection groups compared to tBHP group. Conclusion The NF-κB signaling pathway is up-regulated in KBD patients, moreover, chondrocyte experiments show that cell apoptosis is mediated via upregulation of NF-κB p65,which suggests NF-κB signaling pathway may play an important role in pathogenesis of KBD.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate prevalence of associated diseases in patients with gout as well as their diagnoses and treatment. Methods Two hundreds out-patients diagnosed with gout from April to October 2008 were investigated at Peking University People's Hospital, and information collected included their general characteristics, associated diseases, diagnoses and treatment, as well as blood lipid profiles, serum creatinine, uric acid, results of routine urine tests and glomerular filtration rate estimated by MDRD formula in the past three months. Results Among patients with gout, prevalence of associated hypertension, obesity, renal calculi, coronary heart disease, cerebral infarction and diabetes were 54.5% (109/200), 23.2% (42/181), 20.0% (40/200), 12.0% (24/200), 8.0% (16/200) and 7.0% (14/200), respectively, and 53.7% (101/188) of them associated with hypertriglyceridemia, 63.7% (114/179) with impaired renal function and 15.1% (27/179) with chronic kidney disease. In acute attack of gout, 124 (62.0%) of them were treated with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NASID), 72 (36.0%) with colchicines, 12 (6.0%) with corticosteroid and 30 (15.0%) with urate-lowering drugs, respectively, and during its intermittent period, 69. 8% (81/116) of them received urate-lowering therapy with indications generally accepted internationally, but serum level of uric acid could be maintained below 0.06 g/L in only 8.6% (10/116) of them. And 73.8% (48/65) of the patients with no therapy indications also were treated with urate-lowering drugs. Conclusions The most commonly associated diseases in gout patients are hypertension, hyperlipidemia and obesity, followed by renal calculi, chronic kidney disease and coronary heart disease, and so on. At present, oral NSAID is the first choice of drugs for its acute attack. Indications for urate-lowering therapy in this hospital usually are not consistent with those by generally international acceptance, with lower therapeutic effectiveness achieved.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate the effect of ingredients-added Taohongsiwutang(a decoction of medicinal herbs, the decoction) on the secretion of endothelin-1 and basic fibroblast growth factor of kera-tinocytes. Methods Human keratinocytes were cultured in vitro. The viability and proliferation of kera-tinocytes treated with different concentrations of the decoction were assessed by MTT method. The concentrations of endothelin-1 and basic fibroblast growth factor in the supernatant were determined by ELISA. Results The proliferation of keratinocytes was promoted by 4.27, 5.49 and 6.1 mg/mL of the decoction, endothelin-1 secretion was stimulated by 1.83 and 5.49 mg/ml of the decoction in keratinocyte culture, but no effect on the secretion of basic fibroblast growth factor. Conclusions High concentrations of the decoction can promote the proliferation of keratinocytes. Different concentrations of the decoction can stimulate keratinocytes to secrete endothelin-1, which suggests that the decoction can stimulate keratinocytes to secrete endothelin-1 in vitro.

Objective:To explore the relationship between expressions of guococorticoid receptor(GR)? and ? mRNA in peripheral blood mononuclear cell(PBMC) of patients with polymyositis/dermatomyositis(PM/DM) and the glucocorticoid(GC) efficacy.Methods:Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction(RT-PCR) was used to semiquantite the expressions of GR? and ? mRNA in PBMC of 18 cases of PM/DM patients sensitive to GC,10 cases of PM/DM patients resistant to GC and 20 cases of health blood donors.The levels of cortisol in sera of PM/DM patients and of health donors were detected using radioimmunoassay.Results:There was no significant difference in the levels of seral cortisol among PM/DM patients sensitive to GC, resistant to GC and the health donors.The expressions of GR? mRNA in PBMC from PM/DM patients either sensitive to GC or resistant to GC were significantly lower those that of the normal control. Moreover,the expression of GR? mRNA in PBMC of PM/DM patients resistant to GC was significantly lower than that of patients sensitive to GC. While the expression of GR? mRNA in PBMC of PM/DM patients was significantly higher than that of the normal control,there was no significant difference of the expression of GR? mRNA between PM/DM patients sensitive and resistant to GC.Conclusion:The lower expression of GR? mRNA in PM/DM patients may be related to resistance to GC therapy,whereas there is no significant role of the expression level of GR? mRNA.
