Objective To investigate the associations of peripheral CD4+ CD25 + CD127low/-regulatory T cells (Treg) with HBV viral load and liver pathology in hepatitis B virus (HBV) carriers.Methods Forty six chronic HBV carriers admitted in the first hospital of Jiaxing during October 2012 and February 2014,and 23 healthy subjects (controls) were enrolled in the study.CD4+ CD25 + CD127low/-Treg in peripheral blood of the two groups were detected by flow cytometry.Ultrasound-guided liver biopsies were performed in chronic HBV carriers and HBV DNA load was determined by real-time PCR method.Independent samples t test was used for the comparison between groups,and Spearman rank correlation or Pearson linear correlation analyses were performed.Results The frequency of the peripheral CD4+ CD25+CD127low/-Treg in 46 HBV carriers was (5.11 ±1.47)%,which was significantly higher than that in healthy controls [(3.46 ± 1.23) %,t =4.629,P < 0.01].The HBV DNA load in HBV carriers was (6.21 ±1.98)lg copies/mL,which was positively correlated with the CD4+ CD25+ CD127low/-Treg level (r =0.405,P < 0.01).Among 46 HBV carriers,21 (45.65%) were of inflammation grade 2 or above,and 16 (34.78%) were of fibrosis stage 2 or above.Peripheral CD4+ CD25+ CD127low/-Treg level was negatively correlated with inflammation and fibrosis in HBV carriers (r =-0.343 and-0.452,P < 0.05).Conclusion CD4 + CD25 + CD127low/-Treg may be associated with the chronicity of HBV infection and the degree of liver damage.

Objective To observe the expressions of serum insulin-like growth factor (IGF)- Ⅰ ,Ⅱ and IGF binding protein (IGFBP) 3, 5 and to explore the clinical significances in patients with clear cell carcinoma of kidney. Methods Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) methods were adopted to examine serum expressions of IGF-Ⅰ , Ⅱ and IGFBP 3, 5 in 40 cases with clear cell carcinoma of kidney (renal carcinoma group) and 16 cases with hydronephrosis (control group) from May 2007 to December 2009. Results IGF- Ⅰ , Ⅱ and IGFBP 3,5 in renal carcinoma showed higher expressions before operation (985. 7 μg/L, 1154.0 μg/L,46.6 μg/L and 9.6 μg/L, respectively)than after operation (431.4 μg/L, 632.6 μg/L, 26.7 μg/L, and 6.7 μg/L, respectively, all P<0. 05 ~0.01). There were no significant differences in those indexes between pre- and post- operation in control group (P> 0. 05). Conclusions There are high expressions of serum IGF-Ⅰ , Ⅱ and IGFBP 3, 5 in renal carcinoma patients, and IGF- Ⅱ has clinical significance in diagnosis.

Objective To study the uncertainty and traceability of HBV DNA assays and discuss the comparability of results among different detection systems. Methods Different detecting systems were used to detect HBV DNA using the national standard substance as "quality control substance". The uncertainty of the results was evaluated referring "Guidelines for estimating and reporting measurement uncerTAinty of chemical test results" of NATA The results were traced back to the national standard substance. According to the CLSI document EP9-A2, the results were analyzed and subjected to bias estimation with the t(0.05sv) √u2b1+ u2b2 as the criterion clinically accepted to investigate the comparability of different detecting systems. Results The means (-y) measured by 3 HBV DNA assay systems were 6.15,5.88,and 6.31 lg(kIU/L) respectively. Except system A,both the biases of system B and C had statistical significance (all P < 0. 05) and expanded uncertainty of three detection systems was varied, but the difference was within the maximum acceptable range (± 0. 5) of the external quality assessment by National Center for Clinical Laboratory. Being traceable to national standard substance, the results of HBV DNA of the three detecting systems were (5.45 ± 1.23), (5.55 ± 1.32) and (5.42 ± 1.25) lg(kIU/L), respectively.There was significant difference among three systems (F = 5.63, P < 0. 05). Comparing system A and B,there was significant difference in statistic (q = 5. 12, P < 0. 05) and the difference between system B and C also had statistically significant (q = 6. 85, P < 0. 05), but the results between system A and C had no statistical difference (q = 1.85,P > 0. 05). Among these three systems, the difference of any two detection systems had no statistical significance (all P > 0. 05). It showed that system bias was acceptable in clinical application and the results between different systems were comparable. Conclusions It is necessary to estimate the uncertainty and traceability when comparing the HBV DNA assay among the different labs. It also needs to estimate the bias of different systems and evaluate the clinical acceptability to ensure the accuracy and comparability of the results.

Objective To study the long-term efficacy of splenectomy for patients with advanced shistosomiasis japonica.Methods Levels of WBC,RBC,PLT,EOS,ALT,ALP,GGT,A,TB,HA,LN,Ⅳ-C,PCⅢ,IGG,IGA,C3,C4,CD3,CD4,CD8,CD19 in periphetral venous blood were determined in 239 patients with advanced shistosomiasis.Meanwhile,the liver,gallbladder and spleen were examined with ultrasonography.Results The levels of WBC,PLT,EOS,ALT,ALP,IGG,IGA,LN,Ⅳ-C,CD19 increased in splenectomy group,the levels of A,TB,CD3,CD4,C3,C4 decreased in splenectomy group,while RBC,HA,PCⅢ,CD8 were not changed.Conclusion Splenectomy is a danger to hepatic function.Humoral immunity increases while cellular immunity decreases in splenectomy group.Splenectomy may aggravate the hepatic fibrosis in patients with advanced shistosomiasis.

Objective To determine the serum level of chernokine CCL27 in patients with psoriasis vulgaris,and to analyse its clinical relevance.Methods A total of 61 patients(40 in progressive stage and 21 in stable stage)with psoriasis vulgaris,with an average disease duration of 37.97±14.34 years,were included in this study.Appropriate thempy was given to these patients.Serum samples were collected from the patients before and after therapy,as well as from 45 healthy human controls.ELISA was applied to examine the serum concentration of CCL27.Clinical severity of psoriasis vulgaris was assessed by psoriasis area and severity index(PASI)score.Results Serum level of CCL27 was 670.02±262.15 ng/L in psoriatic patients,compared to 373.10±92.84 ng/L in the controls(t=8.18.P<0.01).Increased serum level of CCL27 was observed in patients with progressive psoriasis vulgaris compared to those with stable psoriasis (799.94±214.54 ng/L vs 422.57±135.53 ng/L,t=8.39,P<0.01).After 8 weeks of therapy,a significant decrease was noticed in the serum level of CCL27 in patients who experienced≥70%reduction in PASI score(t=9.95,P<0.01).but not in those experiencing a PASI reduction of<70%(t=1.84,P>0.05).The serum level of CCL27 was positively correlated with PASI score(r=0.58,P<0.01).Conclusions The serum level of CCL27 is significantly elevated in patients with psoriasis vulgaris,and it is correlated with the disease severity.

Objective To explore the occurrence and development of schistosomiasis japonica hepatic fibrosis, and the treatment countermeasure. Methods Three groups of patients,including advanced schistosomiasis (splenectomy involved), non-advanced schistosomiasis splenomegaly and advanced schistosomiasis with hepatitis, were followed up. Biochemical tests including hepatic fibrosis indexes, liver ultrasonography,lymphocyte subcluster, and membrane CD35 were examined. Immunohistochemical tests of liver cells were performed in some patients. Results A total of 94.06% of 1212 patients took various anti-schistosome treatments. The difference was significant for positive antigen and antibody to schistosome, LN and HA ,and the ultrasonic indexes of liver fibrosis among the three groups. The degree of liver substance pathohistological examinations showed inflammation had a positive correlation with hepatic fibrosis. The contents of C-Ⅰ, C-Ⅲ in portal regions, central vein and hepatic sinusoid were increased in advanced schistosomiasis hepatic fibrosis. In hepatic fibrosis, hepatic sinusoid showed two pathological changes of dilation and stricture. Conclusions In schistosomiasis japonica, hepatic sinusoid changes play a great role in hepatic fibrosis.Hepatic fibrosis would still develop even after the thorough anti-schistosome therapy. So, anti-fibrosis therapy is necessary.
