@#To investigate the mechanism of Shouwu Jiangzhi decoction in treatment of hyperlipidemia by suppress apoB-48 in small intestines, Golden Syrian hamsters were randomly devided into blank group, model group, fenobrate treatment group and Shouwu Jiangzhi decoction treatment group based on weight. The hyperlipidemia models of golden Syrian hamsters were induced by high fat diet(HFD)treatment for 4 weeks, then administered orally with drugs for 4 weeks. The serum indexes of HDL-C, LDL-C, TG and TC were determined by microplate methods, ELISA kits were used to evaluate the contents of serum TNF-α, apoB-48 and FFA. The protein expression levels of p38, ERK, JNK, SREBP, TNF-α and apoB-48 in small intestines were determined by Western blots. The results showed that Shouwu Jiangzhi decoction can effectively increase the serum HDL-C level and reduce the serum level of TG, LDL-C, TNF-α and apoB-48 in HFD-induced hamsters. Furthermore, Shouwu Jiangzhi decoction can significantly downregulate the protein expressions of p38, JNK, ERK, SREBP, TNF-α and apoB-48 in small intestines. Results above indicate that Shouwu Jiangzhi decoction may downregulate the protein expression of apoB-48 to treat hyperlipidemia via partially downregulating TNF-α/MAPK signal pathway.

Objective: To investigate the relationship between serum levels of high sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hs-cTnT) and the severity of coronary lesions in patients with stable coronary artery disease (SCAD). Methods: A total of 450 SCAD patients with coronary angiography (CAG) conifrmed diagnosis in our hospital were studied, and serum levels of hs-cTnT were examined at 3 days prior CAG in all patients. Based on tertiles of Gensini score, the patients were divided into 3 groups: Low score group,n=153 patients with Gensini score28. The relationships between Gensini score and hs-cTnT levels were analyzed among 3 groups. The optimal cut-off value of hs-cTnT for predicting high Gensini score and the need of revascularization were studied by ROC curve, the relationships between hs-cTnT and high Gensini score, the need of revascularization were further detected by Logistic regression analysis. Results: The median values (25%-75%) of hs-cTnT in Low score group, Intermediate score group and High score group were 6.72 (4.20, 8.93) pg/ml, 7.90 (5.74, 12.68) pg/ml and 14.99 (10.26, 24.30) pg/ml respectively, allP<0.01. ROC curve analysis indicated that the area under curve (AUC) of hs-cTnT for predicting high Gensini score was 0.837 (95% CI 0.803-0.874), for the need of revascularization was 0.772 (95% CI 0.728-0.817); the best cut-off value of hs-TnT for predicting high Gensini score was 10.04 pg/ml and for the need of revascularization was 8.56 pg/ml. Logistic regression analysis suggested that with adjusted age, gender, the history of hypertension, diabetes, smoking, blood levels of creatinine, LDL-C and hs-CRP, hs-cTnT was still an independent predictor for high Gensini score (OR=1.13, 95% CI 1.06-1.20,P<0.001) and for the need of revascularization (OR=1.19, 95% CI 1.14-1.24,P<0.001). Conclusion: Serum level of hs-cTnT has been related to severity of coronary lesions in SCAD patients, hs-cTnT might be used as one of the pre-operative predictor for severe coronary disease and for the need of revascularization.
