ABSTRACT

Objective:To compare serum procalcitonin and fibrinogen degradation product levels between type 2 diabetes mellitus patients with Escherichia coli bloodstream and urinary tract infections. Methods:The clinical data of 82 type 2 diabetes mellitus patients with Escherichia coli infections who received treatment between December 2014 and December 2019 in the First Affiliated Hospital of Datong University (The Fifth People's Hospital of Datong) were retrospectively analyzed. These patients were assigned to bloodstream infection ( n = 40) and urinary tract infection ( n = 42) according to the way of Escherichia coli infection. Serum procalcitonin and fibrinogen degradation product levels, neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio, platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio, C-reactive protein, white blood cell count, D-Dimer level, antithrombin III activity, and electrolytes were determined and compared between the two groups. Correlation between procalcitonin and other variables was analyzed. Multiple linear regression analysis was performed with procalcitonin level as a dependent variable and other relevant indexes as independent variables. Results:Body temperature, white blood cell count, neutrophil count, monocyte count, neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio, platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio, procalcitonin level, C-reactive protein level, fibrinogen degradation product level, and D-Dimer level in the bloodstream injection group were (39.49 ± 0.64) ℃, (14.92 ± 11.78) × 10 9/L, (13.39 ± 11.60) × 10 9/L, (0.72 ± 0.36) ×10 9/L, (14.86 ± 10.52), (199.15 ± 160.69), (22.81 ± 17.86) μg/L, (133.44 ± 63.63) mg/L, (49.71 ± 41.44) mg/L, (16.56 ± 12.20) mg/L, respectively, which were significantly higher than those in the urinary tract infection group [(37.12 ± 1.20) ℃, (9.04 ± 3.95) × 10 9/L, (6.25 ± 4.02) × 10 9/L, (0.42 ± 0.29) × 10 9/L, (3.67 ± 3.34), (120.01 ± 44.08), (4.46 ± 8.69) μg/L, (39.22 ± 22.16) mg/L, (3.81 ± 3.41) mg/L, (0.84 ± 0.75) mg/L), t = 7.356, 2.578, 3.162, 2.958, 5.538, 2.591, 2.810, 4.825, 2.902, 2.375, all P < 0.05]. Platelet count, lymphocyte count, blood sodium level and antithrombin Ⅲ activity in the bloodstream infection group were (167.50 ± 104.93) × 10 9/L, (1.06 ± 0.58) × 10 9/L, (130.89 ± 6.50) mmol/L, (57.88 ± 16.28)% , which were significantly lower than those in the urinary tract infection group [(239.40 ± 82.52)× 10 9/L, (2.14 ± 0.71) × 10 9/L, (138.46 ± 5.96) mmol/L, (90.11 ± 8.90)%, t = -2.853, -6.313, -4.046, -7.350, all P < 0.05]. Correlation analysis revealed that serum procalcitonin level was positively correlated with body temperature ( r = 0.387), white blood cell count ( r = 0.355), neutrophil count ( r = 0.368), C-reactive protein ( r = 0.605), fibrinogen degradation product level ( r = 0.616), D-Dimer level ( r = 0.486) (all P < 0.05), and it was negatively correlated with sodium level ( r = -0.319) and antithrombin Ⅲ activity ( r = -0.465) (both P < 0.05). Multiple linear regression analysis results revealed that fibrinogen degradation product level and body temperature were greatly correlated with procalcitonin level. Conclusion:Inflammatory indicators procalcitonin level, body temperature, white blood cell count, neutrophil count, C-reactive protein, fibrinogen degradation product level and D-Dimer level were remarkably higher in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients with Escherichia coli bloodstream infection than those in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients with Escherichia coli urinary tract infection. Procalcitonin level was greatly correlated with body temperature and fibrinogen degradation product level.

ABSTRACT

Objective:We study the clinical effect of (Traditional Chinese Medicine) TCM psychological sleep regulation technique in treating insomnia with deficiency of heart and gallbladder qi.Methods:A total of 60 patients from the Sleep Medicine Special Outpatient Department of Guang’anmen Hospital of China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences, who met the inclusion criteria from June 2020 to March 2021, were divided into 2 groups with 30 in each group, by random number table method. The treatment group were treated with TCM psychological sleep regulation technology. The control group were treated with Zopiclone tablets for 4 weeks. We used the Insomnia Severity Index (ISI) to assess the severity of insomnia, the self-developed TCM syndrome to assess the severity of symptoms, and the Dysfunctional Beliefs and Attitudes Scale to assess the unreasonable cognition related to sleep before and after treatment. The Treatment Emergent Symptom Scale (TESS) was used to assess the safety of the 2 groups in the 4th week of treatment.Results:The total effective rate was 77.7% (23/30) in the treatment group and 80.0% (24/30) in the control group. There was no significant difference between the two groups ( χ2=0.098, P=0.754). After treatment, the score of TCM syndromes in the treatment group (5.15 ± 2.66 vs. 8.98 ± 2.05, t=-1.552) was significantly lower than that of the control group ( P<0.05), and the DBAS-30 score (125.84 ± 20.57 vs. 82.89 ± 21.64, t=2.445) was significantly higher than that of the control group ( P<0.05). Conclusions:TCM psychological sleep control technology can improve the clinical symptoms of patients with insomnia, and heart and gallbladder qi deficiency. The efficacy is similar to that of Zopiclone, and it is superior to western medicine in improving beliefs and attitudes of sleep.

ABSTRACT

Cardiomyocytes injury model has been widely used in the study for the molecular mechanism of cardiovascular diseases and drug action. It is very important to select the appropriate model due to the different formation mechanisms for various models. Clinical cardiovascular pathological change is relatively complex. Currently used models according to the characteristics of clinical cardiovascular diseases mainly include hydrogen peroxide-induced myocardial cell damage model, hypoxia reoxygenation injury model, adriamycin-induced myocardial cell damage model, high sugar high fat-induced myocardial cell damage model, and isoprenaline-induced myocardial cell damage model. Every model has its advantages as well as its disadvantages. The suitable model of myocardial cell injury can be selected according to the research purpose.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To investigate the clinical characteristics of different stages of type 2 diabetic nephropathy(DN), and to explore the possible factors affecting visceral fat area (VFA).Methods:From September 2018 to March 2019, 464 patients with type 2 diabetes who were hospitalized in the First Affiliated Hospital of Datong University were selected.Among them, 315 patients with urinary albumin/creatinine ratio(UACR)<30 mg/g were selected as normal proteinuria group, 72 patients with UACR 30-299 mg/g were selected as microalbuminuria group, 45 patients with UACR>300 mg/g were selected as massive proteinuria group, and 32 patients with serum creatinine higher than the reference value were selected as renal failure group.The serum creatinine of the first three groups was in the normal range.The clinical data of these patients such as blood pressure, body mass index(BMI), VFA, subcutaneous fat area(SFA), brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity(BAPWV), blood lipid, renal function and blood sugar were collected and compared among the four groups.Using VFA as strain and other indicators as independent variables, multivariate linear regression analysis was carried out.Results:There were statistically significant differences among the four groups in age, height, weight, BMI, head circumference, neck circumference, waist circumference, hip circumference and waist-hip ratio ( F=15.580, 4.679, 6.186, 3.553, 3.153, 2.689, 5.170, 3.114, 3.535, all P<0.05). The VFA of the normal proteinuria group, microalbuminuria group, massive proteinuria group and renal failure group were (102.25±37.09)cm 2, (104.12±40.93)cm 2, (119.63±48.82)cm 2, (110.54±41.58)cm 2, respectively, and the BAPWV were (1 546.97±330.18)cm/s, (1 595.52 ±381.27)cm/s, (1 459.63±285.61)cm/s, (1 703.89±318.64)cm/s, the differences were statistically significant among the four groups( F=3.344, 4.020, all P<0.05). There were statistically significant differences in alanine aminotransferase, creatinine, uric acid, total cholesterol, red blood cell, hemoglobin, ratio of neutrophils to lymphocytes (NLR) and ratio of platelets to lymphocytes (PLR) among the four groups ( F=3.405, 15.535, 6.552, 2.803, 6.158, 15.580, 3.764, 3.262, all P<0.05). With VFA as strain, multivariate linear regression analysis showed that waist circumference, BMI, TG and BAPWV were risk factors for VFA. Conclusion:DN is associated with multiple obesity-related indicators and inflammatory indicators such as NLR, PLR; VFA is associated with BAPWV.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To explore the effects of genetic factors and non-genetic factors on warfarin dosage in pregnant women after heart valve replacement. Methods: Totally 68 pregnant women were treated with warfarin throughout pregnancy. PCR-chip method was used to detect the polymorphism of CYP2C9 and VKORC1 gene,and the clinical data were collected. The effects of genetic factors and non-genetic factors on stable dosage of warfarin were statistically analyzed. Results: CYP2C9, VKORCl genotypes and weight had sig-nificant effects on warfarin dosage. The three variables could explain 44. 6% of warfarin individual differences. Conclusion: Genetic factors have significant effect on warfarin dosage in pregnant patients, so the detection of genetic polymorphism of CYP2C9 and VKORCl can be applied to individualize warfarin dosage in pregnant patients with heart valve replacement.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To explore the role played by clinical pharmacists in the formulation and pharmaceutical care of individual-ized administration of warfarin. Methods:Clinical pharmacists adopted maximum a posteriori Bayesian method to formulate the dosage regimen of patients treated with warfarin and monitored the implementation process. The increase of INR was timely identified on ac-count of drug interactions to avoid bleeding events,as well as the decrease of INR caused by patients' medication mistakes to avoid re-currence of thrombosis. Results:The maximum a posterior Bayesian estimation method could be used to estimate and guide clinical medication,which showed great reference value for individualized drug regimen. Conclusion:Clinical pharmacists should formulate in-dividualized administration plan according to genetic testing results and choose optimal treatment for patients. Moreover,the implemen-tation of dosage regimen should be monitored during the whole progress,so as to timely find INR abnormal fluctuations due to disease interactions,drug interactions,poor treatment compliance and so on,and consequently improve anticoagulant effect and reduce adverse reactions such as bleeding and thrombosis etc.

ABSTRACT

Objective To analyze the relationships of high mobility group box 1 protein (HMGB1) with regulatory T cells (Treg), T helper 17 cells (Th17) and cytokine secrtion in peripheral blood of gravidas with preeclampsia(PE),and to investigate the mechanism of HMGB1 in regulating Th17/Treg ratio via receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE)-IL-6 pathway. Methods Forty gravi-das with mild(20 cases) and severe(20 cases) PE were recruited as experimental groups,20 heathy gravi-das in the third trimester of pregnancy were enrolled as control group. Concentrations of HMGB1,IL-6,IL-17 and TGF-β in peripheral blood of all subjects were determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Real-time quantitative PCR(RT-PCR) was used to detect the expression of RAGE at mRNA lev-el in peripheral blood mononuclear cells(PBMCs). The percentages of Treg and Th17 cells were determined by flow cytometry. RT-PCR was performed to analyze changes in the expression of RAGE,IL-6,Foxp3 and RORγt at mRNA level after the PBMCs isolated from 20 garvidas with PE were cultured in vitro and stimula-ted with recombinant human HMGB1 (rhHMGB1). Results The levels of HMGB1,IL-6,Th17 and IL-17 in peripheral blood of gravidas with PE were significantly higher than those in the normal pregnancy group. Moreover,HMGB1 level was positively correlated with IL-6 level and ratios of Th17/Treg and IL-17/TGF-β in preeclamptic pregancies. In vitro stimulation of PBMCs with rhHMGB1 significantly enhanced the expres-sion of RAGE,IL-6 and RORγt at mRNA level, but suppressed the expression of Foxp3 at mRNA level. Conclusion Enriched HMGB1 in plasma shifts the Th17/Treg balance towards Th17 dominance via the RAGE-IL-6 pathway, which exacerbates inflammation and participates in the onset of preeclampsia during pregnancy.

ABSTRACT

Objective To evaluate the effect of resveratrol on the activity of NADPH oxidase during acute lung injury induced by intestinal ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) in rats.Methods Thirty-two pathogenfree healthy female Sprague-Dawley rats,weighing 180-230 g,were divided into 4 groups (n =8 each) using a random number table:sham operation group (Sham group),intestinal I/R group (I/R group),vehicle group (Veh group) and resveratrol group (Res group).Intestinal I/R was produced by occlusion of the superior mesenteric artery for 75 min followed by 4 h of reperfusion.In group Res,resveratrol 15 mg/kg was intraperitoneally injected for 5 consecutive days before establishment of the model and at 15 min before ischemia.The equal volume of vehicle (0.5% alcohol) was intraperitoneally injected in group Veh.The equal volume of normal saline was intraperitoneally injected in Sham and I/R groups.At the end of reperfusion,the rats were sacrificed and the lung was removed for microscopic examination of pathologic changes which were scored and for determination of wet/dry weight ratio (W/D ratio),malondialdehyde (MDA) content and superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity (by colorimetric method) and expression of NADPH oxidase subunits (gp91phox and p47phox) in lung tissues (by Western blot).Results Compared with group Sham,pathologic scores,W/D ratio and MDA content were significantly increased,the expression of gp91phox and p47phox was up-regulated,and the activity of SOD was decreased in I/R and Veh groups (P<0.05).Compared with I/R and Veh groups,pathologic scores,W/D ratio and MDA content were significantly decreased,the expression of gp91phox and p47phox was down-regulated,and the activity of SOD was increased in group Res (P<0.05).Conclusion The mechanism by which resveratrol reduces intestinal I/R-induced acute lung injury is related to inhibiting NADPH oxidase-mediated oxidative stress response of rats.

Objective To investigate the effect of continuous nursing on the psychological status and quality of life in patients with low rectal cancer after Miles operation.Methods A total of 84 patients with low rectal carcinoma underwent Miles operation were selected from August 2014 to August 2016 in Henan Rongjun Hospital.The patients were divided into observation group (n =38) and control group (n =46) according to nursing measures.The patients in the control group were given routine nursing measures,while the patients in the observation group were given continuous nursing measures on the basis of routine nursing care.The psychological status and quality of life of the patients were compared between the two groups before and after intervention.Results There was no significant difference in swlf-rating anxiety scale (SAS) and self-rating depression scale(SDS) scores between the two groups before intervention (P > 0.05).After six months intervention,the SAS and SDS scores in the two groups were significantly lower than those before intervention,and the scores of SAS and SDS in the observation group were significantly lower than those in the control group (P <0.05).There was no significant difference in the quality of life between the two groups before intervention (P > 0.05).After six months intervention,the quality of life of patients in the two groups were significantly higher than those before intervention,and the quality of life of patients in the observation group were significantly higher than those in the control group (P < 0.05).Conclusion Continuous nursing can significantly improve the negative emotions of anxiety and depression,and improve the quality of life in patients with low rectal cancer after Miles operation.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate the alteration and possible compensation mechanism of the default mode network (DMN) in patients with subacute pontine infarction.Methods Rs-fMRI data were collected from 23 patients with subacute pontine infarction and 23 normal controls.The data was analyzed with the functional connectivity (FC) method and compared between subacute pontine infarction patients and controls.All imaging was performed on a Philips Achieva 3.0T MRI scanner.Posterior cingulated cortox (PCC) was used as seed points to analyze the FC changes in the brain regions between the pontine infarction group and the controls.The discrepancies of experiment data between two groups were compared by using two-sample t-test analysis.Results The FC of the DMN showed a significant increase in the right postcentral gyrus, left medial prefrontal cortex and left precuneus compared with normal controls and a significant decrease in bilateral insula,posterior lobe of the left cerebellum,right parahippocampal gyrus and left inferior occipital gyrus.Conclusion The DMN altered in patients with subacute pontine infarction and the changes of the FC suggested the plasticity of cortical or compensation in the relevant brain areas.

ABSTRACT

Objective To evaluate the value of neurophysiological index ( NI) in evaluating the rate of progression of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis ( ALS ) . Methods Forty-eight patients with ALS were enrolled in Zhongda Hospital of Southeast University from January 2010 to August 2016, of whom 36 patients met the ALS definite diagnostic criteria , 12 patients met the ALS probable diagnostic criteria ( following study confirmed those patients met the ALS definite diagnostic criteria ) , including 8 bulbar-onset and 40 upper extremity onset forms of the disease .Fifty-four age-and sex-matched healthy subjects served as controls.After evaluated by the ALS Functional Rating Scale-revised ( ALSFRS-R) , all subjects underwent electrophysiological examination in the Electromyography Lab of the hospital .The rate of disease progression (ΔFS) =48-total ALSFRS-R score at initial visit/symptom duration (months).The relevance between the complex muscle action potential (CMAP), F frequency, distal motor latency (DML), NI and the ΔFS was investigated respectively.Results In ALS group, the ALSFRS-R score was 14.56 ±10.10, the duration from onset to diagnosis was (14.56 ±10.10) months, and theΔFS was 1.54 ±1.18 per month.The median nerve NI in ALS group was 0.60 ±0.76, in control group was 2.56 ±0.78, with statistically significant difference between two groups (t=-12.5, P<0.01).The ulnar nerve NI in ALS group was 0.70 ±0.55, in control group was 0.96 ±0.10, also with statistically significant difference between two groups (t=-0.31, P=0.003).The median nerve NI and ulnar nerve NI both were negatively correlated withΔFS (r=-0.63, P=0.000; r=-0.506, P=0.007).The ΔFS was exponentially based on median nerve NI (R2 =0.668, P<0.01).Conclusion NI is an objective electrophysiological index , which could be used to evaluate the rate of disease progression in ALS , and to evaluate the prognosis of the disease .

ABSTRACT

Objective To establish the norms of Self-rated Health Measurement Scale Version 1. 0 ( SRHMS V1.0) for urban residents in Guangdong. Methods We used regional stratified random sampling method to select 6000 urban residents of 5 cities in Guangdong ( including Guangzhou, Maoming, Shantou, Shaoguan and Shenzhen) for a questionnaire investigation with SRHMS V1. 0, and establish the norms of mean,percentile and threshold based on characteristics of SRHMS V1.0 scores. Results The residents can be divided into 8 groups on the basis of gender and cut-off point of age 40,50 and 60. The mean norms of SRHMS V1.0 total scores were:(78.57±10.10),(76.93±9.90),(75.33±10.66),(69.45±13.90)for males under age40,40-50,50-60 and above 60 respectively;(77.03±10.00),(74.55±10.27),(72.24±11.76), (66.48±14.37)for females under age40,40-50,50-60 and above 60 respectively. The percentile norms of SRHMS V1.0 from 5 percent to 95 percent were established with 5% as interval. The norms of cutting off scores were established as five states according to the scores of TS,namely severe poor health,poor health,gen-eral health,good health and fairly good health,with( x-s),( x-0.5s),( x+0.5s),( x+s) as cutting off scores. Conclusion The study established the SRHMS V1.0 norms for urban residents of Guangdong preliminarily,which provides reference for further research of the population''s health status and its impacting factors.
