ABSTRACT

Objective:To study the clinical significance of early detection of soluble growth stimulating gene 2 protein (sST2) and prealbumin (PAB) in patients with chronic pulmonary heart disease (CPHD) complicated with refractory heart failure.Methods:From September 2017 to June 2019, 112 CPHD patients complicated with refractory heart failure were admitted to Hengshui People's Hospital. The selected patients met the revised guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (2013 revision) and the cardiac function grade Ⅲ-Ⅳ according to the grading criteria of the New York Cardiology Society. Cardiogenic shock, severe liver and kidney dysfunction, malignant tumors, anemia, and autoimmune diseases were excluded. Patients were divided into the high PAB group (≥200 mg/L) and the low PAB group (<200 mg/L) according to the PAB level on admission. The pulmonary artery systolic blood pressure (PASP), pulmonary artery mean pressure (MPAP), and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) were observed in the two groups before and after the treatment. PAB, total bilirubin (TBIL), hypersensitive C reactive protein (hs-CPR), N-terminal B type brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) and sST2 levels were detected. Measurement data were expressed in terms of mean ± standard deviation, the counting data were compared using χ 2 test. Correlation analysis was conducted using Spearman correlation test. Results:There were 40 cases in the high PAB group and 72 cases in the low PAB group. There were no statistically significant differences in general data between the high PAB and low PAB groups ( P>0.05). Hospitalization time was significantly different between the two groups ( P<0.05). Before the treatment, there were no significant differences in PASP, MPAP, NT-proBNP and LVEF between the two groups ( P>0.05). High sST2 was significantly different between the two groups ( P<0.05). After the treatment, PASP, MPAP, NT-proBNP and sST2 were decreased in both groups, and the improvement was more obvious in the high PAB group than in the low PAB group, with statistical significance ( P<0.05). Before the treatment, the levels of TBIL and hs-CPR were not statistically different between the high PAB and low PAB groups ( P>0.05). However, the levels of TBIL and hs-CPR were beyond the normal range. After the treatment, TBIL and hs-CPR were decreased in both groups, and there was statistically significant difference between the two groups ( P<0.05). Spearman correlation analysis showed that PAB was negatively correlated with sST2 ( r=-0.778, P=0.001). There was a positive correlation between cardiac function and sST2 ( r=0.569, P=0.034), hospitalization time ( r=0.572, P=0.033) in patients with refractory heart failure. The higher the sST2 of CPHD with refractory heart failure, the longer the patient hospitalization time, and the more serious the heart failure was. The area under the combined ROC curve of PAB and sST2 was 0.756. CPHD patients with refractory heart failure had the greatest predictive value. Conclusion:The combined test of sST2 and PAB can evaluate the condition and outcome of CPHD patients with refractory heart failure, and guide the clinic.

ABSTRACT

Objective To establish a liquid biopsy technique of KRAS gene G12D mutation and to assess its diagnostic value. Methods KRAS G12D mutation was analyzed by ddPCR in plasma DNA from 52 colorectal cancer patients and compared that of to 80 healthy subjects. KRAS gene sequencing in cancerous tissue of colorectal cancer patient being set as a golden standard, we evaluated the accuracy of ddPCR and analyzed the correlation between G12D mutation rate, plasma concentration;and their clinical manifestations in CRC. Results ddPCR indicated that KRAS G12D mutation rate and concentration(26.92%, 81.5 copies/mL) in the plasma samples of colorectal cancer patients were significantly higher than that of healthy subjects (8.75%, 16 copies/mL). Colorectal cancer patients with highly differentiated adenocarcinoma showed a significantly higher number of mutant copies than medium and low differentiated adenocarcinoma(P<0.05);M2 patients had a significantly higher number of mutant copies than N1 and NO patients (P<0.05);The concordance rate of KRAS gene mutation between cancerous tissue and plasma ctDNA was 87.50% in CRC.Conclusions ddPCR is a fast, noninvasive and accurate method for plasma testing of ctDNA, and the test results could be used to monitor the course of the disease and as clinical guidelines.

ABSTRACT

Objective A Real-time PCR method was established to study the infection of adenovirus (Ad) in infants with sporadic diarrhea in Wenzhou. Methods According to hexon gene of adenovirus, one prime pair was designed as universal primes and applied to detect adenovirus DNA by Real-time PCR. It was also compared with immunochromatographic assay. 157 fecal specimens from diarrhea infants were tested while positive specimens were sequenced and identified by isolate culture and restriction endonucleases. Results A rapid and specific Real-time PCR assay for detection adenovirns was set up. The positive rates of adenovirns in fecal specimens by immunochromatographic assay and Real-time PCR were 1.91% (3/157) and 3.18% (5/157), respectively. Out of the 154 specimens with negative result from immunochromatographic assay, 2 showed positive by Real-time PCR. 5 positive specimens, identified by Real-time PCR, were sequenced as Ad3 (3/157, 1.91% ) and Ad7 (2/157, 1.27% ). 2 of the 5 positive specimens were proved to be Ad3 by cell culture and restriction endonucleases.Conclusion Real-time PCR combined with sequence analysis seemed more sensitive and specific so could be used for identifying types of adenovirus in clinical specimens. Ad3 and Ad7 were important pathogens which caused infant sporadic diarrhea in Wenzhou during February and April in 2008.

ABSTRACT

Objective To assess the clinical predictability of waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) among female civil servants who had experienced risk factors of cardiovascular disease. Methods Data was gathered from 4153 female civil servants aged 21-91 y working at universities who were enrolled in health screening centre at the Second Hospital Attached to Hebei Medical University, in 2006. WHR quartiles were determined as: <0.80, 0.80-<0.84, 0.84-<0.90 and ≥0.90. Subjects were placed into high-risk categories for cardiovascular disease on the basis of national health reference on range norms of protocol including hypertension, diabetes mellitus and dyslipidemia. Results Participants had an increased likelihood of hypertension (systolic blood pressure) , dyslipidemia (elevated triacylglycerol and descending HDL-C) and diabetes mellitus at WHR≥0.84. All aforementioned variables had a significant odds ratio at WHR ≥0.84. This trend was further persisted after adjustment had been made on smoking, age, and BMI. Descended HDL-C was observed at the 0.80≤WHR<0.84 when compared with WHR< 0.80. Conclusion These data indicated an upward shift in the critical threshold for WHR to ≥0.84. Above which point, there was an elevation of risk factors on cardiovascular diseases among all the female civil servants. The trend persisted regardless of smoking, BMI <or ≥28 and at what age group, among the civil servants population.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To recognize the clinical features of the enterovirus 71 (EV71) infection with pulmonary edema or pulmonary hemorrhage as a fulminant and often fatal illness.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of the three cases with EV71 infection for clinical manifestation, laboratory data, medications, outcome etc.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>All the cases were infants and they all died. These infants had no skin or mucosal lesions, however, they had sudden onset of cyanosis and tachypnea 1 to 2 days after the onset of the febrile disease with vomiting. All these 3 cases were misdiagnosed and were treated for shock on admission. Pulmonary hemorrhage was not considered in any of the cases on admission. All the cases received tracheal intubation when foamy secretions were discharged from mouth and nose of the patients and notable cyanosis was noted. After intubation, all had pink foamy fluid flew out from the endotracheal tube. The patients had hyperglycemia and limb weakness, two had tachycardia, and hypertension was found in one case. Chest X-ray showed bilateral or unilateral widespread air space opacity, but the cardiac size and shape were normal. All the patients had leucocytosis. EV71 infection was confirmed by detection of specific sequences of the virus in throat swab and tracheal secretions samples and in one case in cerebrospinal fluid sample.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>Pulmonary edema or pulmonary hemorrhage occurred in the 3 cases with EV71-infected infants. The initial presentation was often nonspecific with fever and vomiting, and sudden appearances of cyanosis, tachypnea, tachycardia, hypertension or hypotension, limb weakness may suggest pulmonary edema or hemorrhage. Excessive fluid resuscitation may deteriorate the illness, on the contrary, fluid restriction and inotropic agents, and early intubation with positive pressure mechanical ventilation may be the proper treatment.</p>

ABSTRACT

As a therapeutic agent in thrombosis the fibrinolytic enzymes are of interest and the search for a new enzyme continues. A novel fibrinolytic enzyme was produced from Rhizopus chinensis 120, which was screened from the starter for brewing rice wine in the South of China, by solid fermentation, and purified through ammonium sulfate precipitation, hydrophobic interaction, ionic exchange and gel filtration chromatographies. The purified enzyme hydrolyzed fibrin, it cleaved the alpha-, beta- and gamma-chains of fibrinogen simultaneously, and it also activated plasminogen to plasmin. The enzyme hydrolyzed N-Succinyl-Ala-Ala- Pro-Phe-pNA, and Km was 0.23 mmol/L and Kcat 16.36 s(-1). The optimal temperature of the enzyme for hydrolying fibrin was 45 degrees C, and the optimal pH range of 6.8 - 8.8. The isoelectric point of the enzyme estimated by isoelectric focusing electrophoresis was 8.5 +/- 0.1. The enzyme was a glycoprotein. EDTA, PCMB, PMSF inhibited the activety of the enzyme, and SBTI, Lys, TPCK, Aprotinine had none obvious inhibition, which suggested that the activity centre of the enzyme had hydrosulfuryl, metal and serine. The first 12 amino acids of the N-termimal sequence of the enzyme were NH2-Ser-Val-Ser-Glu-Ile-Gln-Leu-Met-His-Asn-Leu-Gly, and had none homology with that of other fibrinolytic enzyme from other microbes. The novel fibrinolytic enzyme from Rhizopus chinensis 12# has potential to become a therapeutic agent in thrombosis.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVES</b>To understand the relation between nitric oxide (NO) level in seminal plasma and male fertility.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>The levels of NO in seminal plasma of 174 fertile males and 217 abnormospermia patients were measured by using the reductase of nitric acid, Greiss reagent and spectrophotometry.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>1. NO was found in all 174 samples (20-49 years) of fertile males which was (27.78 +/- 5.81) mumol/L. The NO level in seminal plasma in fertile males was became higher after age 40, and there was no significant difference between 20-29-year-old [(26.25 +/- 5.52) mumol/L] and 30-39-year-old[(28.11 +/- 5.87) mumol/L]. But the group of 40-49-year-old[(30.17 +/- 6.14) mumol/L] had a higher level of NO in seminal plasma than 20-29-year-old (P < 0.05). 2. The seminal plasma samples from nine types of abnormospermia were measured, which all had a higher level of NO than fertile males. In abnormospermia, the level of NO in seminal plasma of the patients with single abnormality increased slightly, two abnormality obviously increased, and the highest level of NO in seminal plasma appeared in three abnormality.</p><p><b>CONCLUSIONS</b>This results confirmed that proper level of NO in seminal plasma may regulate the spermatogenesis.</p>
