ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#Angelicae Sinensis Radix (ASR, Danggui in Chinese), Cistanches Herba (CH, Roucongrong in Chinese), Ginseng Radix et Rhizoma (PG, Renshen in Chinese), and Panacis Quinquefolii Radix (PQ, Xiyangshen in Chinese), widely used as medicine and dietary supplement around the world, are susceptible to fungal and mycotoxin contamination. In this study, we aim to analyze their fungal community by DNA metabarcoding.@*METHODS@#A total of 12 root samples were collected from three main production areas in China. The samples were divided into four groups based on herb species, including ASR, CH, PG, and PQ groups. The fungal community on the surface of four root groups was investigated through DNA metabarcoding via targeting the internal transcribed spacer 2 region (ITS2).@*RESULTS@#All the 12 samples were detected with fungal contamination. Rhizopus (13.04%-74.03%), Aspergillus (1.76%-23.92%), and Fusarium (0.26%-15.27%) were the predominant genera. Ten important fungi were identified at the species level, including two potential toxigenic fungi (Penicillium citrinum and P. oxalicum) and eight human pathogenic fungi (Alternaria infectoria, Candida sake, Hyphopichia burtonii, Malassezia globosa, M. restricta, Rhizopus arrhizus, Rhodotorula mucilaginosa, and Ochroconis tshawytschae). Fungal community in ASR and CH groups was significantly different from other groups, while fungal community in PG and PQ groups was relatively similar.@*CONCLUSION@#DNA metabarcoding revealed the fungal community in four important root herbs. This study provided an important reference for preventing root herbs against fungal and mycotoxin contamination.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To investigate the efficacy of conformal intensity-modulated radiotherapy combined with paclitaxel liposome versus cisplatin in the treatment of locally advanced cervical cancer. Methods:Sixty patients with cervical cancer who received treatment in Rushan People's Hospital from February 2014 to September 2016 were included in this study. They were randomly assigned to undergo either conformal intensity-modulated radiotherapy combined with cisplatin (control group, n = 30) or conformal intensity-modulated radiotherapy combined with paclitaxel liposome (observation group, n = 30) for five cycles. Clinical efficacy and incidence of adverse reactions were compared between the two groups. Results:Total response rate in the observation group was slightly, but not significantly, higher than that in the control group [93.3% (28/30) vs. 90.0% (27/30), P > 0.05]. The incidences of myelosuppression and gastrointestinal reactions in the observation group were 26.7% (8/30) and 53.3% (16/30), respectively, which were significantly lower than those in the control group [46.7% (14/30), 76.7% (23/30), χ2 = 5.16, 7.17, both P < 0.05]. After radiotherapy and chemotherapy, the score of quality of life in the observation group was significantly higher than that in the control group ( t = 3.19, 4.12, 3.22, 4.53, 3.63, 3.08, 3.78, all P < 0.05). Conclusion:Conformal intensity-modulated radiotherapy combined with paclitaxel liposome for treatment of locally advanced cervical cancer can effectively reduce myelosuppression and gastrointestinal reactions and improve quality of life. Conformal intensity-modulated radiotherapy combined with paclitaxel liposome has certain clinical significance in the treatment of locally advanced cervical cancer.

ABSTRACT

To date, there is no report on the genetic diversity of ticks in these regions. A total of 370 representative ticks from the south and east regions of Kazakhstan (SERK) and Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region (XUAR) were selected for molecular comparison. A fragment of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (cox1) gene, ranging from 631 bp to 889 bp, was used to analyze genetic diversity among these ticks. Phylogenetic analyses indicated 7 tick species including Hyalomma asiaticum, Hyalomma detritum, Hyalomma anatolicum, Dermacentor marginatus, Rhipicephalus sanguineus, Rhipicephalus turanicus and Haemaphysalis erinacei from the SERK clustered together with conspecific ticks from the XUAR. The network diagram of haplotypes showed that i) Hy. asiaticum from Almaty and Kyzylorda Oblasts together with that from Yuli County of XUAR constituted haplogroup H-2, and the lineage from Chimkent City of South Kazakhstan was newly evolved; and ii) the R. turanicus ticks sampled in Israel, Almaty, South Kazakhstan, Usu City, Ulugqat and Baicheng Counties of XUAR were derivated from an old lineage in Alataw City of XUAR. These findings indicate that: i) Hy. asiaticum, R. turanicus and Ha. erinacei shared genetic similarities between the SERK and XUAR; and ii) Hy. marginatum and D. reticulatus show differences in their evolution.

ABSTRACT

Objective@#To carry out a investigation on molecular epidemiological features of tick-borne Brucella in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region (Xinjiang), and to provide a scientific basis for formulation of effective preventive and control measures.@*Methods@#In 2016-2018, parasitic ticks (including engorged females) were collected on the body surface of livestock in 10 counties (cities) along the border of Xinjiang. The free-living ticks were collected by flagging method in Alashankou. The engorged female was placed in a breathable insect tube for spawning, each egg batch was divided into two parts: one part was tick eggs, while the second part was allowed further larval development. All ticks were identified by molecular biology (16S rRNA) identification. Tick DNA was extracted, PCR was performed based on Brucella omp22 and IS711, and amplification products were sequenced and analyzed by BLAST.@*Results@#A total of 1 084 ticks were collected in 11 counties (cities), of them 747 were parasitic ticks (including 34 engorged females) and 337 were free-living ticks. Based on 16S rRNA identification, 1 084 ticks belonged to 4 genera and 5 species, and the proportions of Dermacentor nuttalli, Dermacentor marginatus, Haemaphysalis punctata, Hyalomma asiaticum and Rhipicephalus turanicus were 29.43% (319/1 084), 16.51% (179/1 084), 10.42%(113/1 084), 37.27% (404/1 084), and 6.37% (69/1 084), respectively. A total of 214 Brucella-positive nucleic acid samples were detected, the positive rate was 19.74%. The parasitic ticks' positive rate was 25.30% (189/747), and the free-living ticks' positive rate was 7.42% (25/337), parasitic ticks' positive rate was higher than that of free-living ticks (χ2=46.873, P < 0.05). Two Brucella melitensis nucleic acid samples were detected in 34 "engorged females-tick eggs" developmental stage, and one Brucella melitensis nucleic acid sample was detected in 22 "tick eggs-larvae" developmental stage.@*Conclusions@#Brucella is widely distributed in parasitic ticks and free-living ticks in Xinjiang border areas, and the parasitic ticks' positive rate is obviously higher than that of free-living ticks. The Brucella melitensis has potential transovarian transmission and transstadial transmission in ticks. In the prevention and control of livestock brucellosis, the work of killing ticks should be strengthened, including parasitic ticks on the body surface and free-living ticks in the environment.

ABSTRACT

Mycotoxins,secondary metabolites produced by certain fungi,have become one of the most harmful factors that affect the clinical safety of medicinal herbs that probably can be contaminated by harmful toxins generated from fungi in the whole process from planting to clinical use. Therefore,more toxicological research of mycotoxins,a better knowledge of the pathogenesis and quick detection with sensitivity and accuracy will play an important role in targeted therapy of poisoning by mycotoxins and early warning . In this paper,the current status of mycotoxin contamination in medicinal herbs was ana?lyzed,and the progress of toxicological study on common contaminants was reviewed. In view of the high toxicity of toxins,the strategy of ″Prevention First″ is highly desirable. Hence,the development of rapid detection of typical mycotoxins was systematically discussed. The review was intended to provide ref?erence for ensuring clinical safe administration of medicinal herbs and for reducing the risk of mycotoxin poisoning.

ABSTRACT

A suitable ultra-high performance liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS) method was developed for the determination of 11 mycotoxins with isotope internal standard in malt. The mycotoxins in malt were extracted and purified by one-step ultrasonic extraction procedure using acetonitrile/water/acetic acid (80 : 19 : 1), and then detected and confirmed by UPLC-MS/MS, and quantified by isotope labeled AFB1 ([13C17]-AFB1) and ZEN ([13C18]-ZEN) internal standards. Rapid separation of the 11 mycotoxins was successfully achieved on a Phenomenex Kinetex C18 column (100 mm x 2.1 mm, 2.6 μm) with gradient elution using the mobile phase of methanol containing 0.1% formic acid and 2 mmol x L(-1) ammonium acetate in water. Simultaneous acquisition was performed in multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) mode with electrospray ionization (ESI) source operated in both positive and negative ionization modes. The established method provided a good linearity for the 11 mycotoxins within their respective linear ranges with correlation coefficients all higher than 0.999 1. The average recoveries ranged from 75.0% to 117.0% with relative standard deviations (RSDs) below 5.1%. The limits of detection (LODs) and quantitation (LOQs) ranged from 0.05 to 30 μg x kg(-1) and 0.15 to 87.5 μg x kg(-1), respectively, which were below the maximum residue levels (MRLs) set by the European Union. Twenty malt samples were analyzed and nine samples were detected with mycotoxins, which were confirmed according to the same fragment ions found in positive samples and the standards at the same retention time. This study has demonstrated that the one-step extraction procedure of mycotoxins from complex matrices coupled to UPLC-MS/MS method is simple, quick, accurate and sensitive for quantitative and qualitative analysis of multiple mycotoxins in malt.

ABSTRACT

The safety of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is a major strategic issue that involves human health. With the continuous improvement in disease prevention and treatment, the export of TCM and its related products has increased dramatically in China. However, the frequent safety issues of Chinese medicine have become the 'bottleneck' impeding the modernization of TCM. It was proved that mycotoxins seriously affect TCM safety; the pesticide residues of TCM are a key problem in TCM international trade; adulterants have also been detected, which is related to market circulation. These three factors have greatly affected TCM safety. In this study, fast, highly effective, economically-feasible and accurate detection methods concerning TCM safety issues were reviewed, especially on the authenticity, mycotoxins and pesticide residues of medicinal materials.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate the role of hippocampal α7 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (α7nAChR) in sevoflurane-induced deficit in long-term cognitive function in neonatal rats.Methods Sixty-four male Sprague-Dawley rats,aged 7 days,weighing 10-15 g,were randomly divided into 4 groups (n =16each) using a random number table:control group (group C),sevoflurane anesthesia group (group S),sevoflurane anesthesia + α7nAChR agonist PNU-282987 group (group PS),and α7nAChR inhibitor MLA group (group M).In C and S groups,the rats inhaled 30% oxygen and 3% sevoflurane for 6 h,respectively.In group PS,PNU282987 (5 mg/kg) was injected intraperitoneally and 24 h later the rats were exposed to 3% sevoflurane for 6 h.In group M,MLA 3 mg/kg was injected intrappritoneally and 24 h later the rats inhaled 30% oxygen for 6 h.Eight rats in each group were randomly chosen and sacrificed immediately after oxygen or sevoflurane inhalation.The hippocampus was renoved for determination of the expression of α7nAChR and NR1,NR2A and NR2B subunitscontaining NMDA receptors in the total protein and membrane protein in hippocampal neurons.When the left rats in each group were raised to 2 months,Y-maze test was performed to detect the cognitive function.Results Compared with group C,the expression of α7nAChR and NR1,NR2A and NR2B subunits-containing NMDA receptors in the membrane protein was significantly down-regulated,and the percentage of spontaneous alternation was decreased in group S,the expression of NRI and NR2A subunits-containing NMDA receptors in the membrane protein was down-regulated (P < 0.05),and no significant change was found in the expression of NR2B subunitscontaining NMDA receptors in the membrane protein and percentage of spontaneous alternation in group PS (P > 0.05),and no significant change was found in the expression of NR1 and NR2A subunits-containing NMDA receptors in the membrane protein (P > 0.05),and the expression of NR2B subunits-containing NMDA receptors in the membrane protein was down-regulated,and the percentage of spontaneous alternation was decreased in group M (P < 0.05).Compared with group S,no significant change was found in the expression of NR1 and NR2A subunits-containing NMDA receptors in the membrane protein (P > 0.05),and the expression of NR2B subunitscontaining NMDA receptors in the membrane protein was significantly up-regulated,and the percentage of spontaneous alternation was increased in PS group (P < 0.05).There was no significant difference in the expression of α7nAChR and NR1,NR2A and NR2B subunits-containing NMDA receptors in the total protein and the number of entries into each arm in Y-maze test between the four groups (P > 0.05).Conclusion The mechanism by which sevoflurane induces deficit in long-term cognitive function may be related to decreased function of hippocampal α7nAChR and inhibition of function of NMDA receptors in neonatal rats.

ABSTRACT

Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites produced by certain genera of toxigenic fungus and frequently oc-cur in food worldwide. Humans and animals can be simultaneously exposed to different mycotoxins through the diet. As most mycotoxins are highly toxic, carcinogenic, teratogenic and mutagenic, they have posed grave health threats to consumers. Determination of mycotoxins and their main metabolites in blood, urine, bile, milk or faeces can serve as biomarkers and can facilitate effective exposure assessment, crucial to estimate mycotoxin related dis-ease risk. According to reason mentioned above, the study of metabolism and evaluations of mycotoxins in biologi-cal fluids have been paid increasing attention since the results may offer valuable indications on the real risk for consumers. Therefore, it is important to develop proper analytical methods for the rapid quantitative and qualita-tive measurement of mycotoxins and key metabolites in vivo. This paper reviewed some biomarkers and their harm to animals and humans, systematically summarized the research progress of analytical methods and prospected the development trends.

ABSTRACT

A rapid and sensitive analytical method was developed for the simultaneous determination of fumonisins B1 and B2 in traditional Chinese medicines by HPLC-MS/MS. The detection limits for fumonisins B1 and B2 were 0.25 ng x mL(-1) corresponding to 2 microg x kg(-1) in samples. Recoveries from different samples spiked with fumonisins B1 and B2 at levels ranging from 0.2 to 3 mg x kg(-1) were 84.0%-96.1% and 86.3%-99.3%, respectively. Among the total of 34 samples purchased from local markets, ten samples of which were visibly moldy samples due to inappropriate storage, and 24 were normal samples. The results showed that 6 of the visibly moldy samples and 5 of the normal samples were contaminated with total fumonisins at levels ranging 82.4-2349 microg x kg(-1) and 102-729 microg x kg(-1), respectively.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To develop a method for the simultaneous determination of aflatoxin B1, B2, G1, G2 and ochratoxin A in Glycyrrhiza uralensis by HPLC-FLD after immunoaffinity column with online post-column photochemical derivatization.</p><p><b>METHOD</b>Sample was extracted with MeOH: H2O (80:20) and cleaned up by immunoaffinity column. The toxins were separated by reversed-phase HPLC and the mobile phase was consisted of methanol and 0.5% acetic acid solution with gradient elution. The determination was carried out by fluorescence detector after photochemical derivatization.</p><p><b>RESULT</b>The detection limits of aflatoxin G2, G1, B2, B1 and ochratoxin A were 0.02, 0.06, 0.015, 0.03 and 0.25 microg x kg(-1), respectively. The recoveries of analytes were from 76.0% to 103% and the relative standard deviations (RSDs) were below 13%.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>The method is a simple, accurate and can be used to determine the contents of aflatoxin B1, B2, G1, G2 and ochratoxin A in G. uralensis simultaneously.</p>
