ABSTRACT

Objective:To investigate the diagnostic performance of Xpert Mycobacterium tuberculosis/rifampin (Xpert MTB/RIF) assay for pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Methods:Clinical data of 226 patients with AIDS and suspected pulmonary TB in Shanghai Public Health Clinical Center, Fudan University from July 2017 to November 2019 were retrospectively analyzed. Fluorescence staining microscopy of sputum smear, BACTEC MGIT 960 liquid culture (or Roche solid culture) and Xpert MTB/RIF assay were implemented respectively. The sensitivity and specificity of Xpert MTB/RIF in the diagnosis of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) infection and rifampin resistance were analyzed. Results:Totally 226 patients of suspected pulmonary TB were enrolled. There were 94(41.6%) patients had positive mycobacterium culture, in which 51 (54.3%) were MTB and 43 (45.7%) were nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM). Using the positive MTB culture of sputum and mycobacterial protein from BCG of Rm 0.64 in electrophoresis (MPB64) as reference standard, the sensitivity and specificity of Xpert MTB/RIF assay for MTB diagnosis were 72.6%(95% confidence interval ( CI) 66.7%-78.4%) and 97.1% (95% CI 95.0%-99.3%), respectively. The sensitivity and specificity of Xpert MTB/RIF assay for MTB diagnosis in patients with positive sputum smear were 76.7%(95% CI 67.7%-85.8%) and 90.0(95% CI 83.6%-96.5%), respectively. The sensitivity and specificity of Xpert MTB/RIF assay for MTB diagnosis in patients with negative sputum smear were 50.0%(95% CI 41.8%-58.2%)and 99.3%(95% CI 97.9%-100.0%), respectively. With phenotypic resistance as reference standard, the sensitivity and specificity of Xpert MTB/RIF assay for rifampicin resistance were 75.0% and 100.0%, respectively. Conclusion:Among AIDS patients, the performance of Xpert MTB/RIF assay for pulmonary TB diagnosis is pretty good and could differentiate MTB from NTM rapidly, which has good application value.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To investigate the mechanism of sinomenine (SIN) in inducing the immunosuppressive effects of rat-derived dendritic cells (DCs).Methods:The bone marrow-derived precursor cells from Wistar rats were cultured in vitro. The morphological differences between sinomenine treated DCs (sinomenine modified group, SIN group) and conventional induced DCs (conventional induced group, control group) were observed under microscope. The CD phenotype of DCs was detected by flow cytometry. DCs were induced maturation by lipopolysaccharides (LPS) stimulation. The impact of SIN on the expressions of Toll-like receptor (TLR)2, TLR3 and TLR4 on the DCs surface were detected by flow cytometry. Results:In the conventional induction group, the cells showed clusters or suspension growth, with obvious granular sense on the cell surface; while in the sinomenine induction group, the cells were clustered together, with no significant change in cell volume and morphology. The relative expressions of CD80 and CD86 were 70.7% and 71.3% in the conventional induction group, while 51.7% and 49.4% in the SIN group. The relative expression of TLRs on DCs in SIN + LPS group was TLR2 (51.2±0.34)%, TLR3 (50.3±0.14)%, TLR4 (52.1±0.16)%, which were significantly lower than those in LPS group [(94.35±0.16)%, (97.55±0.16)%, (94.6±0.12)%].Conclusions:SIN may induce immune tolerance by inhibiting the maturation of DCs via inhibiting the TLRs signaling pathways.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To explore the semantic priming processing characteristics of children with Chinese developmental dyslexia(DD).Methods:According to scores of the dyslexia checklist for Chinese children, character recognition test and Raven's standard progressive matrices (RSPM), 19 primary school students from a school in Wuqia County of Xinjiang were selected as DD group.Meanwhile, 19 children were selected as chronological-age control(CA) group matching in age and RSPM scores, and 20 children were selected as reading-level control(RL) group according to the character recognition test and RSPM scores.The amplitude of N400 of children in three groups were tested by semantic priming paradigm under the conditions of semantic related, unrelated and pseudo words.Results:The accuracy of the DD group under the conditions of irrelevant semantics((0.55±0.25) vs (0.81±0.16), P<0.05), and pseudo characters((0.43±0.27) vs (0.68±0.26), P<0.05) were significantly lower than those of CA group.There was no difference between DD group and RL group, as well as between RL group and CA group(both P>0.05). There was no significant difference in the response time among the three groups of children under semantic related and unrelated conditions( F=1.23, 2.03, both P>0.05). In terms of ERP data, in semantic related condition, there was no significant difference in N400 amplitude among the three groups ( F=0.55, P>0.05). In semantic unrelated condition, the amplitude of N400 in DD group was smaller than that in CA Group((-5.92±3.70)μV vs (-9.76±3.45)μV, P<0.05), and there was no statistically significant difference between DD group and RL Group((-5.92±3.70)μV vs (-7.41±4.02)μV, P>0.05), as well as between CA gorup and RL group.As to pseudo words condition, children in DD group had a lower amplitude of N400 than those in CA and RL groups ((-6.03±2.92)μV vs (-9.98±3.40)μV, (-8.91±3.40)μV, both P<0.05). While no significant differences were found between CA group and RL group. Conclusion:Children with Chinese DD have cognitive defects in semantic and orthographic processing.The semantic cognitive defects may caused by their low reading level, rather than their inherent defect, while the defect in orthographic processing may be their inherent defect.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To understand the surveillance of iodine deficiency disorders (IDD) in Zhongwei City of Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region after marketization reform of salt industry (2017).Methods:In 2018, Shapotou District, Zhongning County and Haiyuan County of Zhongwei City were divided into five sampling areas according to the location of east, west, south, north and middle. In each area, one township was selected, and three salt sales outlets were selected from each township; at the same time, three supermarkets were selected from the cities and towns of each county (district), and different kinds of salt samples in all sales outlets and supermarkets were tested semi-quantitatively. From 2016 to 2020, Shapotou District, Zhongning County and Haiyuan County of Zhongwei City were divided into five sampling areas according to the location of east, west, south, north and middle. One township was selected from each area, and one primary school was selected from each township, 40 non-boarding students aged 8 - 10 years old (age balanced, half males and half females) were selected from each primary school; at the same time, 20 pregnant women were selected from each township, and salt samples were collected from houses of children and pregnant women to test salt iodine content. From 2018 to 2020, according to the "Ningxia Iodine Deficiency Disorders Surveillance Program (2016 Edition)", random urine samples of children and pregnant women were collected to detect urinary iodine content. In 2018 and 2019, the thyroid volume of children was measured by B-mode ultrasound, and the goiter rate was calculated.Results:In 2018, 13 kinds of salt were supplied in the market of Zhongwei City, a total of 130 salt samples were tested, and 11 samples of non-iodized salt were detected, with a rate of 8.46%. From 2016 to 2020, the consumption rates of qualified iodized salt in Zhongwei City were 90.33% (813/900), 67.89% (611/900), 78.67% (708/900), 91.56% (825/901) and 94.44% (850/900), respectively. From 2018 to 2020, the medians urinary iodine of children aged 8 - 10 years old were 189.33, 195.64, and 222.10 μg/L, and the medians urinary iodine of pregnant women were 158.21, 158.01, and 171.84 μg/L, respectively. In 2018 and 2019, the goiter rates of children aged 8 - 10 years old were 1.75% (7/400) and 0.67% (4/600), respectively.Conclusion:After marketization reform of salt industry, the consumption rates of qualified iodized salt in Zhongwei City decrease in 2017 and 2018, however, children and pregnant women have sufficient iodine nutrition, and the goiter rate of children is controlled at a low level.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To explore if there is premature senescence of chondrocytes in patients with Kashin-Beck disease (KBD) and osteoarthritis.Methods:Five knee cartilage samples of KBD, osteoarthritis and control groups were collected, respectively, from the Second Affiliated Hospital of Xi'an Jiaotong University. DNA was then extracted from cartilage samples and DNA methylation was analyzed by Illumina Infinium HumanMethylation450 BeadChip. At the same time, based on genome-wide methylation data, the online DNA methylation aging clock calculator (https://dnamage.genetics.ucla.edu/home) was used to calculate the DNA methylation age (DNAm age) of samples, and the results were compared with their actual ages.Results:In the comparison between KBD group and control group, 1 212 differentially methylated CpG sites were found, including 497 hypermethylated CpG sites and 715 hypomethylated CpG sites, corresponding to 264 hypermethylated genes and 368 hypomethylated genes, respectively. In the comparison between osteoarthritis group and control group, 656 differentially methylated CpG sites were found, including 343 hypermethylated CpG sites and 313 hypomethylated CpG sites, corresponding to 177 hypermethylated genes and 174 hypomethylated genes, respectively. In the above comparison, 367 overlapped CpG sites (corresponding to 182 genes) were found, which were differentially methylated in both KBD and control groups and osteoarthritis and control groups. The results of DNA methylation aging clock showed that the average age acceleration differences between DNAm age and actual age of KBD, osteoarthritis and control groups were 2.549, 0.017, and - 5.364 years, respectively, the DNAm ages of KBD and osteoarthritis groups were greater than the actual ages.Conclusion:The chondrocytes show premature senescence in both KBD and osteoarthritis.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To establish a comet test method for detection of genotoxicity of three reference chemicals in rat liver cells. Methods:6-10 week old Sprague Dawley rats were randomly divided into 4 groups, with normal saline (0.9% NaCl solution) as negative control group. Animals in three test groups were treated, respectively, with ethyl methanesulfonate (EMS) 200 mg/kg, N-methyl-N-nitrosourea (MNU) 50 mg/kg, and D-mannitol 2 000 mg/kg. There were 10 animals in each group, 5 males and 5 females. The animals received two times (21 h interval) of test compounds through intragastric administration, and their clinical symptoms and body weight changes were recorded during the experiment. The rats were sacrificed 3 h after the last exposure. The liver was weighed, then used to prepare single-cell suspensions for the alkaline comet test which determines the average tail DNA content percentage (DNA%) of hepatocytes and other comet indicators. Results:(1) D-mannitol, EMS and MNU did not show significant toxicity in the whole animal. (2) The mean values of tail DNA content percentage (DNA%) of rat hepatocytes in EMS [(60.07±24.69)%] and MNU [(41.66±22.35)%] groups were higher than that in the negative control group [(2.32±1.39)%] and the difference was statistically significant (P<0.05). The difference between D-mannitol group [(3.06±3.30)%] and the negative control group was not significant (P>0.05). Conclusion:This laboratory has established a comet test method using hepatocytes from treated rats. Among three testing chemicals, EMS and MNU have displayed genotoxicity by this assay, but no genotoxicity was observed in D-mannitol treated animals.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To observe and compare the therapeutic effects of hydroxypropyl chitosan ferrous ion complex solution and ferrous sulfate solution in iron deficiency anemia rats and their effects on gastric mucosa.@*METHODS@#Seven rats were randomly selected from thirty five SPF grade SD rats as control group, and were fed with normal diet, distilled water (E). The rest of SD rats were fed with low iron feed and distilled water plus continuous tail vein bloodletting to establish the iron deficiency anemia model. After the model was established successfully, the rats were randomly divided into four groups: blank control group (A), iron deficiency anemia control group (B), ferrous sulfate group (C), hydroxypropyl chitosan ferrous ion complex (HPCTS-Fe@*RESULTS@#After modeling, except the normal control group, the hair color of the rats in the four groups showed dark yellow and the belly of the toes became white gradually. HGB, HCT, Ret%, MCV, MCH, MCHC and SF decreased significantly (P < 0.05). After treatment, the rats with dark yellow hair in group C and D were improved, and the toe abdomen turned pink gradually. RBC, HGB, HCT, Ret%, MCV, MCH, MCHC and SF in rats in group C and D increased, which were higher than those in group B (P < 0.05). The HGB of the rats in group D was higher than that of group C in day 28th during treatment and the Ret% was higher than that in group C at day 10th (P<0.05).After treatment, the liver and spleen of the rats in group C and D were lighter than those in group B (P<0.05).The gastric mucosa in group A, B, D and E was not damaged obviously, while it was slightly irritated and damaged in group C.@*CONCLUSION@#Hydroxypropyl chitosan ferrous complex solution can improve the hemoglobin level of SD rats with iron deficiency anemia, which is stronger than ferrous sulfate solution and shows no damage to gastric mucosa.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To study the association of neonatal blood calcium levels with perinatal factors and neonatal urinary calcium levels measured by an intelligent urine test system.@*METHODS@#The medical data of 96 full-term singleton neonates with mild diseases were collected by a cross-sectional survey, who were hospitalized in the Department of Neonatology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Xi'an Jiaotong University, from June to August 2018. Urinary calcium levels measured by an intelligent urine test system, total blood calcium levels, ionized calcium levels, and the mother's calcium and vitamin D supplementation during pregnancy were recorded.@*RESULTS@#Compared with the group without vitamin D supplementation for the mother (17 neonates), the group with vitamin D supplementation for the mother (79 neonates) had significantly higher levels of total blood calcium and ionized calcium (@*CONCLUSIONS@#Vitamin D supplementation during pregnancy can increase the blood levels of total calcium and ionized calcium in neonates, and calcium supplementation alone cannot increase the blood levels of total calcium or ionized calcium in neonates. Hypothermia in neonates might cause the reduction in blood calcium levels. The urinary calcium level measured by the intelligent urine test system is positively correlated with the blood level of ionized calcium.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: Stem cell therapy has emerged as a novel treatment for chronic temporal lobe epilepsy that has been widely used in various animal models of epilepsy. However, there is yet no consensus in the therapeutic effect in existing experimental studies. OBJECTIVE: To systemically evaluate the therapeutic efficacy of stem cell therapy in animal models of chronic temporal lobe epilepsy, providing experimental evidence and new ideas for further clinical trials. METHODS: A systematic search of CNKI, WanFang, PubMed, Embase and Web of Science was performed for animal studies related to stem cell therapy for chronic temporal lobe epilepsy published from inception to May 2018. Two reviewers independently extracted data, assessed methodological quality and evaluated evidence quality by using CERQual tool. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: Eight animal studies were eligible for inclusion, including 284 animals suffering chronic temporal lobe epilepsy. Between-study heterogeneity was substantial, so a qualitative description was performed. Stem cell therapy has some improvement in the seizure frequency and duration of chronic temporal lobe epilepsy in animals, which can promote the recovery from epilepsy in most animals. Other outcomes include memory and learning, stem cell migration, differentiation and integration. The exact efficacy of stem cells cannot be determined due to the lack of rigor, characterization, and evidence quality. We therefore do not have absolute confidence to recommend the clinical use of stem cell therapy for chronic temporal lobe epilepsy. Thus, it is necessary to conduct high-quality preclinical studies to further evaluate the efficacy of stem cell transplantation for chronic temporal lobe epilepsy and its clinical conversion risk before implementation of clinical trials.

ABSTRACT

Due to worldwide abuse of chemical antibiotics and continuous emergence of "superbugs", the harm of bacterial drug resistance to human beings has become more and more serious. Therefore, it is of great significance to look for green antibiotics with a wide range of sources, broad antibacterial spectrum, non-toxicity or low toxicity, environmentally friendliness, diverse active components and low drug resistance. The volatile oil of traditional Chinese medicine is a kind of volatile oily liquid that exists in plants and can be distilled with steam and immiscible with water. Because of its good potential to resist drug-resistant pathogens, it is widely used in food, medicine and other fields. This paper summarized the antibacterial advantages and characteristics of volatile oil of traditional Chinese medicine, and the antibacterial effect and antibacterial mechanism of combined application of volatile oil of traditional Chinese medicine, in order to provide some theoretical basis and study ideas for solving the problem of bacterial drug resistance and developing natural and green antibiotics.

ABSTRACT

@#【Objective】 To study the mechanisms and therapeutic effects of human olfactory mucosa-derived mesenchymal stem cells(OMSC)on experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis(EAE)in mice.【Methods】Under local anesthesia by using nasal endoscopy,olfactory epithelia of healthy donors were obtained,digested and cultured up to the 5th passage. OMSC were identified,differentiated and stained. EAE models were induced in C57 female mice by myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein(MOG35- 55)and pertussis toxin(PT). Neurological function was documented daily. On day 16 after immunization(peak of incidence),the mice were divided randomly into two groups and treated with OMSC and PBS via tail vein injection respectively. On day 24 after immunization ,blood was collected from angular vein and levels of IL-10,IL-17,IFN-γ and IL-6 were determined by cytometric beads array(CBA). The size of the spinal cord lesion in mice was observed and measured by using HE and LFB staining. Peripheral blood lymphocytes(PBL)of healthy donors were obtained and then co-cultured with OMSC. The proportions of CD4+ T cells secreting IFN- γ(Th1 cells)in lymphocyte group and co-culture group were compared after 2 days of cultivation. Adding IDO or COX pathway inhibitor to co- culture group and cultivating for 2 days,we observed and compared the proportions of Th1 cells in lymphocyte group,co-culture group and inhibitor treatment group respectively.【Results】OMSC exhibited certain mesenchymal stem cell-like characteristics with respect to expression of stem cell surface markers and multilineage differentiation potentials. After induced by MOG35- 55 and PT,EAE models showed different levels of neurological damage. Compared with those in PBS treatment group,in OMSC treatment group,the severity of neural dysfunction in mice was significantly reduced(P =0.002),the level of IFN-γ in serum was lower(P = 0.032),but no significant differences in the levels of IL-10,IL-17 and IL-6 were found between two groups. HE and LFB staining revealed that the inflammatory infiltration and demyelinating areas in OMSC treatment group were less than those in PBS treatment group. The proportion of Th1 cells was lower in co-culture group than that in lymphocyte group(P = 0.001),higher in IDO inhibitor group than that in co-culture group(P = 0.01),but no significant difference was found between IDO inhibitor group and lymphocyte group or between COX inhibitor group and co-culture group.【Conclusions】OMSC may regulate the proportion of Th1 lymphocytes through IDO pathway so as to inhibit the demyelinating injuries of EAE in mice. This study provides a new idea for the clinical treatment of multiple sclerosis.

ABSTRACT

@#AIM: To evaluate the effect of red-green duochrome test in subjective refraction.<p>METHODS: A randomly-selected sample size of 60 new patients with myopia were measured twice using subjective refraction with and without the red-green duochrome test. Assessments on the effectiveness were made based on comprehensive optometry analysis, accommodation response, accommodation sensitivity, positive and negative relative accommodation.<p>RESULTS: Application of red-green duochrome test on the targeted population did not show any statistical significance to the subjective refraction results. No difference was observed on patients with dilated pupils(<i>P</i>=0.686)and non-dilated pupils(<i>P</i>=0.655). Bland-Altman analysis of displayed good consistency between both subjective refraction measurements on each patient. Multivariate linear regression analysis shows that the results of subjective refraction were independent of age, obliquity, regulation lag, positive relative adjustment, and negative relative adjustment effect(<i>P</i>>0.05).<p>CONCLUSION: The red-green duochrome test does not affect optometric results.
