ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To investigate the effect of electroacupuncture (EA) at Neiguan (PC 6) on myocardial fibrosis in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs), and to explore the contribution of interleukin-1 β (IL-1 β), insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), and transforming growth factor β 1 (TGF- β 1) to the effects.@*METHODS@#Nine 12-weeks-old Wistar Kyoto (WKY) male rats were employed as the normal group. Twenty-seven SHRs were equally randomized into SHR, SHR+EA, and SHR + sham groups. EA was applied at bilateral PC 6 once a day 30 min per day in 8 consecutive weeks. After 8-weeks EA treatment at PC 6, histopathologic changes of collagen type I (Col I), collagen type 1 (Col 1) and the levels of IGF-1, 1L-1 β, TGF- β 1, matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-2 and MMP-9 were examined in myocardial tissure respectively.@*RESULTS@#After 8-weeks EA treatment at PC 6, the enhanced myocardial fibrosis in SHRs were characterized by the increased mean fluorescence intensity of Col I and Col 1 in myocardium tissue (P<0.01). All these abnormal alterations above in SHR + EA group was significantly lower compared with the SHR group (P<0.01). Meanwhile, the increased levels of IL-1 β, IGF-1, TGF-β 1 in serum or myocardial tissue of SHRs, diminished MMP 9 mRNA expression in SHRs were also markedly inhibited after 8 weeks of EA treatment (P<0.05 or P<0.01). Furthermore, the contents of IL-1 β, IGF-1, TGF-β 1 in myocardial tissue were positively correlated with the systolic blood pressure and hydroxyproline respectively (P<0.01).@*CONCLUSION@#EA at bilateral PC 6 could ameliorate cardiac fibrosis in SHRs, which might be mediated by regulation of 1L-1 β/IGF-1-TGF- β 1-MMP9 pathway.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To observe the effect of electroacupuncture (EA) at "Neiguan" (PC 6) on cardiac function of ventriculus sinister in rats with spontaneously hypertensive (SHR), and to explore the mediation effect of endothelin-1 (ET-1)/endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS).@*METHODS@#Six 12-week-old male Wistar Kyoto (WKY) rats were taken as the normal group. Eighteen 12-week-old SHR were randomly divided into a model group, an EA group and a sham EA group, 6 rats in each group. The rats in the EA group were treated with EA (disperse-dense wave, 2 Hz/15 Hz in frequency, 1 mA in current intensity) at "Neiguan" (PC 6), 30 min each time, once a day for 8 weeks. The rats in the sham EA group were treated with superficial needling at "Neiguan" (PC 6) with no electrical stimulation applied. After treatment, the left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and left ventricular fractional shortening (LVFS) were tested by echocardiographic analysis. The left ventricular systolic pressure (LVSP), left ventricular end-diastolic pressure (LVEDP), heart rate (HR), the maximum rate of increase/decrease of left ventricular pressure (±dp/dtmax) were detected. The serum content of ET-1 was detected by ELISA. Western blot was used to evaluate the expression of ETAR, eNOS in myocardial tissue of left ventricular.@*RESULTS@#Compared with the normal group, LVEF, LVFS, +dp/dtmax/LVSP and -dp/dtmax/LVSP were decreased (P<0.01, P<0.05), while LVSP, LVEDP, +dp/dtmax and -dp/dtmax were increased (P<0.01) in the model group. Compared with the model group, LVEF, LVFS, +dp/dtmax/LVSP and -dp/dtmax/LVSP were increased (P<0.01, P<0.05), and LVSP and LVEDP were decreased (P<0.01) in the EA group. Compared with the normal group, the serum content of ET-1 and the expression of ETAR in myocardial tissue were increased (P<0.01), whereas expression of eNOS was decreased (P<0.01) in the model group. Compared with the model group, the serum content of ET-1 and the expression of ETAR in myocardial tissue were decreased (P<0.05), whereas expression of eNOS was increased (P<0.05) in the EA group.@*CONCLUSION@#EA intervention may alleviate hypertensive cardiac function damage by up-regulating the expression of eNOS protein in myocardial tissue, down-regulating the serum content of ET-1 and the expression of ETAR protein in myocardial tissue.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To investigate the effects of different acupuncture manipulations on Deqi sensations and surface myoelectricity, and explore the correlation between Deqi sensations and needling manipulations.@*METHODS@#Forty-five healthy participants accepted twirling, lifting-thrusting, and twirling plus lifting-thrusting manipulanions at right Zusanli (ST 36), respectively. The acupuncturist's and participants' Deqi sensations were collected by MGH Acupuncture Sensation Scale (MASS). The intensity and occurrence rate of soreness, dull pain, pressure, heaviness, fullness, numbness, sharp pain, warmth, coolness, and throbbing feelings of participants, and tightness, smooth, and tangle feelings of acupuncturist were measured. The correlation between the acupuncturist's and participant's Deqi sensations was analyzed. Surface electromyogram (EMG) were recorded before, during and after needling in 30 participants. The integrated EMG (iEMG), mean power frequency (MPF) and media frequency (MF) were analyzed.@*RESULT@#Both fullness and soreness of participants and tightness of acupuncturist were the most frequently occurred ones. A positive correlation between participants' fullness and acupuncturist's tightness was observed during the three aforementioned needling manipulations (P1). Almost all the needling sensations measured in the present study could be induced by the three needling manipulations. However, strength of Deqi sensations was exhibited as lifting-thrusting > twirling plus lifting-thrusting > twirling according to MASS index. The iEMG values were increased and MPF, MF values were decreased during needling compaired to those before needling, especially during lifting-thrusting (P<0.01).@*CONCLUSIONS@#The intensity and occurrence rate of the different Deqi sensations induced by different needling manipulations were basically similar. The fullness and soreness were both the most frequently induced Deqi sensations. The strongest Deqi sensation could be induced by lifting-thrusting manipulation. There is a positive correlation between participants' fullness and acupuncturist's tightness during the three needling manipulations. The myoelectricity around the acupoint is related to Deqi responses. (Registration No. AMCTR-IOR-20000314).

ABSTRACT

Chronic hypertension evoked aberrant myocardial remodeling is the main reason for progressive death from heart failure. It is of great clinical significance to find effective prevention and treatment methods to block this pathological process. It has been shown that imbalance of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) induced by chronic hypertension, i.e., hyper-excitation of sympathetic nerve system and suppression of parasympathetic (vagal) nerve system, activates immune cells-mediated inflammatory responses, and exacerbates the pathological remodeling of cardiac tissue. Except the negative inotropic outcomes, excitation of vagal nerves also has an anti-inflammatory effect which is mediated by activating the cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway (CAIP). Previous studies showed that electroacupuncture (EA) could exert anti-hypertensive and systematic anti-inflammatory effects by increasing vagal activity. In addition, preliminary study from our lab demonstrated that EA was able to alleviate the pathological progress from hypertension to cardiac hypertrophy. However, the potential role of CAIP in restoring hypertension induced aberrant myocardial remodeling is still unknown. Herein, based on the alteration of ANS function in hypertension and EA's impact on vagal activity, we propose novel research ideas that EA could attenuate the pathological process of hypertension induced abnormal myocardial remodeling via activating CAIP.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: Low frequency-pulsed electromagnetic fields (LF-PEMFs) have been confirmed to not only treat delayed bone union or nonunion, but also be effective for fresh bone fractures, ostectomy and fatigue fractures.OBJECTIVE: To systematically evaluate the efficacy and safety of LF-PEMFs for bone healing.METHODS: CNKI and PubMed databases were retrieved for the randomized controlled trials concerning LF-PEMFs promoting bone healing published from January 1985 to May 2016. Meta-analysis was conducted on RevMan 5.1 software after data management and quality assessment.RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: Thirteen eligible literatures were enrolled, involving 1244 patients. Meta-analysis showed that the overall effectiveness and bone mineral density in the LF-PEMFs group were significantly higher than those in the control group. The healing time in the LF-PEMFs group was significantly shorter than that in the control group. These results suggest that LF-PEMFs show high efficacy and safety for bone healing, and also can markedly shorten the healing time. However, more high-quality multi-center, large-scale randomized controlled trials are still needed to testify all above conclusions.

ABSTRACT

AIM:To investigate the neuroprotective effect of progesterone against adenosine triphosphate (ATP)-injured human neuroblastoma SH-SY5Y cells.METHODS:The SH-SY5Y cells in the logarithmic phase were divided into different groups according to the progesterone and ATP concentrations.The cell viability was measured by CCK-8 assay.The membrane permeability was detected using fluorescent dye YO-PRO-1.Cytosolic Ca2+ concentration was measured with fluorescent dye Fluo-3/AM.The expression of purinergic P2X7 receptor was assessed by Western blot.RESULTS:The viability of the SH-SY5Y cells was significantly decreased (P < 0.05) and YO-PRO-1 uptake was obviously increased (P < 0.05) in a concentration-dependent manner compared with control group when SH-SY5Y cells were treated with ATP at 1,3,5 and 7 mmol/L for 2 h.The viability reduction of the SH-SY5Y cells induced by ATP was obviously counteracted by treatment with progesterone at 3,10 and 30 nmol/L for 30 min (P < 0.05) as compared with ATP group.YO-PRO-1 fluorescence enhancement induced by ATP in SH-SY5Y cells was significantly reduced (P < 0.05) by progesterone (30 nmol/L) or P2X7 receptor antagonist KN-62 (500 nmol/L) pretreatment for 30 min,and no obvious difference between treatments with progesterone and KN-62 was observed.Cytosolic Ca2+ fluorescence intensity in normal group was a little,but that in ATP group was increased (P < 0.05).Progesterone or KN-62 pretreatment significantly decreased the cytosolic fluorescence intensity of Ca2+ induced by ATP (P < 0.05).However,no obvious difference between treatments with progesterone and KN-62 was found.The expression of P2X7 receptor in ATP group was significantly higher than that in control group (P < 0.05),and progesterone inhibited ATP-induced P2X7 receptor expression (P < 0.05).CONCLUSION:Progesterone inhibits P2X7 receptor expression,membrane pore formation,intracellular Ca2+ increase and cell death induced by ATP,so progesterone may protect SH-SY5Y cells against ATP-induced injuries.

ABSTRACT

To interpret the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) theory by the network technology, in order to promote the modernization and programming of studies on compatibility of TCMs. In this paper, efforts were made to express the direct interactions between drugs through the herb-pair network, analyze the community characteristics of the network and its relations with blood-Qi theory, and study the expression of blood-Qi theory on the herb-pair network through prescriptions. According to the findings, the herb-pairs network showed a strong community structure characteristics; Each community is composed of a series of herb pairs with close correlations, and either blood efficacy or Qi efficacy but not both of them. Based on that, the 386 single TCM ingredients involved by the herb-pair network were divided into three types of communities: Blood (B) community, Qi (Q) community and uncertain community. According to the statistical results of 262 prescriptions mapped onto the three types of communities, if a prescription contains single herbs of the Q community, the probability that it contains single herbs o the B community is 99.84%; Meanwhile, there are 140 prescriptions containing single herbs of both the Q community and the B community. The result is completely coincident with the TCM Blood-Qi theory that single herbs belong to both Q and B communities or the B community, because Qi regulation leads to blood regulation, but not vice versa. For example, a patient with hemorrhage due to trauma or blood-heat, Qi tonifying prescriptions may aggravate hemorrhage. In this paper, authors found high-recognition macroscopic network numerical characteristics to network data reference for judging rationality of new prescriptions, and proved human blood and Qi relations from the perspective of data analysis.

ABSTRACT

Objective To identify the differentially expressed genes of osteoblasts under the stimulation of mechano growth factor E peptide( MGF-Ct24E) and mechanical stress by microarray analysis. Methods Primary osteoblasts were cultured in vitro, which were subjected to mechanical stimulation(with the mechanical strain of 12% and frequency of 0.5 Hz) and MGF-Ct24E treatment(50 mg/L), respectively. The gene expression profiles were analysed by cDNA microarrys and quantitative PCR was used to validate the microarray data. ResultsCompared with the control group, 1 866 genes were found to have differentially expressed in the mechanical loading group, in which 1 113 genes were up-regulated, while 753 genes were down-regulated. 1 178 genes were found to have differentially expressed in the MGF-Ct24E group, in which 796 genes were up-regulated and 382 genes were down-regulated. GO analysis suggested that the gene expression profile of MGF-Ct24E group was consistent with that of the mechanical loading group and differentially expressed genes were mainly involved in cell proliferation and differentiation, response to mechanical stress and mechaotransduction. ConclusionsThe microarray analysis showed that MGF-Ct24E treatment had similar effects with the mechanical loading on the gene expression of osteoblasts, which might provide a novel approach to study the usage of MGF-Ct24E for treating bone repair in the absence of mechanical stimulation.

ABSTRACT

The main objective of this study was to observe the adhesion, proliferation and differentiation of mouse osteblast-like MC3T3-E1 cells cultured on maleic anhydride-modified poly(D,L-lactic acid) (MPLA) and poly(D,L-lactic acid) (PDLLA) polymers, and to evaluate the cytocompatibility of MPLA polymer. The effects of MPLA and PDLLA polymers on the morphology, adhesion, proliferation, the content of total cellular protein, alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity and the content of Ca of MC3T3-E1 cells were explored. These results indicated that MC3T3-E1 cells on MPLA polymer adhered and spread more fully. On MPLA polymer, the proliferation, total protein content, ALP activity, Ca content of the cells were significantly higher than those of the cells on PDLLA polymer (P < 0.01). It was concluded that MPLA polymer could promote the adhesion, spreading, proliferation and the synthesis of protein of osteoblasts, and also induced the differentiation and mineralization of osteoblasts, suggesting that MPLA polymer might have the better cytocompatibility than PDLLA.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To explore the mechanism for adefovir dipivoxil (ADV) resistance occurred in chronic hepatitis B patients of a series of phase III clinical trails.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>30 resistant HBV strains were selected out from 177 cases of ADV treated chronic hepatitis B patients. HBV polymerase RT region were amplified by nested PCR and analyzed with the standard nucleotide sequence of HBV strains deposited in GeneBank.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>21 out of 30 HBV strains were primary resistant strains, among them 5 HBV strains (23.8%, 5/21) had the polymorphism site of rtN118H. While the other 9 HBV strains showed secondary resistance, variations in conservative region C (rtM207V) and other non-conservative regions were found. The classic mutation sites such as rtN236T and rtA181V/T were not found.</p><p><b>CONCLUSIONS</b>Polymorphism site of rtN118H might be responsible for HBV primary resistance to ADV therapy. rtM207V variation in HBV RT C domain and other variation sites might play a role in HBV secondary resistance to ADV treatment, and natural resistant quasispecies may be the basis for the ADV quick resistance. These conclusions await further confirmation by phenotype test.</p>
