ABSTRACT

Objective:High-throughput screening to obtain small molecular compounds against Gram-negative bacilli by targeting BamA outer membrane protein.Methods:The sybyl-X2.1 software was used to perform high-throughput virtual screening of small molecular compounds in Chemdiv compound library based on the molecular docking. The top 150 hits by high-throughput screening were re-screened through in vitro biological experiments. The top 4 small molecules with obvious antibacterial activity were selected for in-depth molecular docking analysis, and the small molecule 8308-0401 with the highest docking score was selected for further experiments. The antibacterial effect of 8308-0401 combined with rifampicin was tested by checkerboard assay. Finally, the affinity between 8308-0401 and BamA was tested by plasma surface resonance assay. Results:The docking score of the top 150 hits calculated by high-throughput virtual screening had a mean value of 5.63. In vitro biological experiments showed that small molecules 8308-0401, 8365-1335, C066-2507 and L582-0346 exhibited strong antibacterial activity. Among those molecules, 8308-0401 showed the highest molecular docking score, and synergistic antibacterial activity against both types of strains and clinical isolates when combined with rifampicin. 8308-0401 has a strong affinity to BamA with binding a constant of 182 μmol/L. Conclusion:The small molecule 8308-0401 exerts antibacterial activity against Gram negative bacilli by targeting the outer membrane protein BamA.

Resveratrol 15 mg/kg was intraperitoneally injected once a day for 7 consecutive days in L+ R, R, SIRT3 -/-L+ R and SIRT3 -/-R groups, while the equal volume of normal saline was injected in the rest groups.Lipopolysaccharid 15 mg/kg was injected via the tail vein to develop a mouse model of endotoxin-induced lung injury at 30 min after resveratrol injection on 7th day, in L+ R and SIRT3 -/-L+ R groups and at the corresponding time points in L and SIRT3 -/-L groups, while the equal volume of normal saline was injected in the other groups.Blood samples were collected from the orbital venous plexus at 12 h after injection of normal saline or lipopolysaccharid for determination of serum total oxidation state (TOS) and total antioxidant state (TAS) levels by the xylenol orange method and ABTS colorimetric method, and the oxidative stress index (OSI) was calculated.After the mice were sacrificed, the lung tissues were taken for microscopic examination of the pathological changes which were scored and for determination of the mitochondrial membrane potential (MMP) (by JC-1 method), cellular oxygen consumption rate (OCR) (by the specific fluorescent probe method), and expression of SIRT3 (by Western blot). Results:Compared with group C or group SIRT3 -/-C, the lung injury score, serum TOS concentration and OSI were significantly increased, TAS concentration, MMP and OCR were decreased, and SIRT3 expression was down-regulated in L, L+ R, SIRT3 -/-L and SIRT3 -/-L+ R groups ( P<0.05). Compared with group L, the lung injury score, serum TOS concentration and OSI were significantly decreased, TAS concentration, MMP and OCR were increased, and SIRT3 expression was up-regulated in group L+ R, and lung injury score, serum TOS concentration and OSI were significantly increased, TAS concentration, MMP and OCR were decreased, and SIRT3 expression was down-regulated in group SIRT3 -/-L ( P<0.05). Compared with group L+ R, the lung injury score, serum TOS concentration and OSI were significantly increased, the TAS concentration, MMP and OCR were decreased, and the expression of SIRT3 was down-regulated in group SIRT3 -/- L+ R ( P<0.05). There was no significant difference in the indicators mentioned above between group SIRT3 -/-L+ R and group SIRT3 -/-L ( P>0.05). Conclusions:Down-regulation of SIRT3 expression can lead to impaired mitochondrial function, which is involved in the pathophysiological mechanism of endotoxin-induced lung injury.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To observe the effect of combining transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) with functional electrical stimulation-assisted cycling (FES-cycling) on lower limb motor function early after a stroke.Methods:Thirty-seven survivors of a recent stroke were divided into a tDCS treatment group ( n=18) and a pseudo-stimulation group ( n=19). While receiving routine rehabilitation training and clinical drug treatment, the tDCS treatment group also cycled in response to functional electrical stimulation while simultaneously receiving tDCS anode stimulation of the motor cortex M1 area. The pseudo-stimulation group followed the same protocol but with the tDCS stimulation inactivated. Both groups were treated for 20min daily, 5 days weekly for 4 weeks. Before and after the 4 weeks of treatment, the lower limb motor function, walking ability and ability in the activities of daily living of both groups were evaluated using the Fugl-Meyer assessment scale for the lower extremities (FMA-LE), the timed up and go test (TUGT) and the modified Barthel index (MBI) respectively. Transcranial magnetic stimulation was used to detect each subject′s cerebral cortex motor threshold (CMT) , cortical latency (CL) and central motor conduction time (CMCT) as well as the amplitude (Amp) of the motor evoked potential of the lower limb primary motor cortex (M1 area). Results:After 4 weeks of treatment, the average FMA-LE and MBI scores and TUGT times of the two groups had improved significantly compared with those before treatment. The average FMA-LE score and TUGT time of the tDCS group were significantly better than those of the pseudo-stimulation group. The average CMT, CL and CMCT in both groups were significantly lower than those before the intervention, while the average Amp had increased significantly, but there were significant differences in the average CMT, Amp, CL and CMCT between the two groups after the 4 weeks of treatment.Conclusions:Transcranial direct current stimulation combined with cycling assisted by functional electrical stimulation can effectively stimulate excitability in the motor cortex soon after a stroke. That should promote the recovery of nerve activity and lower limb function.

ABSTRACT

Objective To study the effect of autologous periosteum on the healing of tendon-bone interface in rabbit rotator cuff tear. Methods Supraspinatus tenotomy was performed on one side shoulder in 60 New Zealand white rabbits to establish the model of rotator cuff tear. The rabbits were randomly divided into two groups:the study group(used autologous periosteum to promote the suture fixation)and control group(simple suture fixation). The rabbits were sacrificed at 4,8 and 12 weeks postoperatively with twenty rabbits sacrificed each time. Tissue samples of the tendon-bone interface was taken for histological examination and biomechanical test was performed to assess the strength of tendon-bone junction. Results At 4 weeks the study group showed extensive inflammatory cell infiltration, and a small amount of chondrocytes and extracellular matrix. At 8 weeks, the study group showed a large amount of immature chondrocytes arranged rather regularly. At 12 weeks,the tendon bone junction appeared similar to normal. In the study group,both the tendon-bone connection and the arrangement of chondrocytes were significantly better than the control group. The result of biomechanical testing showed that the highest tendon load in the study group was significantly higher than the control group (P < 0.05). Conclusions The use of autologous periosteum as a patch to strengthen the repair of the rotator cuff tear can effectively promote the healing of tendon bone interface, shorten the rotator cuff healing time and has good biological properties. This method provides an experimental basis for clinical rotator cuff repair surgery.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To analyze the correlation of miR-625 expression with clinicopathological characteristics in esophageal squa-mous cell carcinoma (ESCC) and to explore the effect of miR-625 on the migration and proliferation of ESCC cells. Methods:The expres-sion level of miR-625 was determined through real-time PCR in 86 paired human ESCC tissue specimens and tumor-adjacent normal esophageal tissue specimens, ESCC cell lines, and esophageal epithelial cell line. The associations of miR-625 expression with clinico-pathological characteristics and survival in ESCC patients were analyzed. Transwell and CCK-8 assays were performed to examine the effect of miR-625 expression on migration and proliferation of ESCC cells. Results:Compared with tumor-adjacent normal specimens, miR-625 was significantly downregulated in ESCC tissue specimens (P<0.05). MiR-625 expression was decreased in ESCC cell lines com-pared with human esophageal epithelial cell lines (P<0.05). Lower miR-625 expression was associated with poorer prognosis and sur-vival. The migration and proliferation abilities of ESCC cells were inhibited by miR-625 overexpression (P<0.05). Conclusion:MiR-625 acts as a tumor suppressor gene in the development and progression of ESCC, suggesting that miR-625 may serve as an efficient prog-nosis biomarker and a potential therapeutic target for ESCC.

ABSTRACT

Objective To compare cardiovascular responses of intubations by Discopo and Macintosh laryngoscope in elderly patients with hypertension. Methods Sixty elderly hypertensive patients with ASAⅡ~Ⅲundergoing elective surgery were equally randomized into two groups. After induction of general anesthesia , orotracheal intubation was performed with Discopo or Macintosh. The Mean arterial pressure (MBP) and heart rate (HR), as while as Electrocardiogram (ECG) and Blood oxygen saturation (SpO2), were recorded before (baseline values) and at 1,3,5 minutes after intubation(post-induction values). The rate of one-time successive intubation,intubation time and complication were also recorded. Results Compared with the macintosh group, the rate of one-time successive intubation was higher and the intubation time was shorter in the Discopo group (P< 0.05, respectively),with no complications. Compared with T0,MBP and HR at T2 in the two groups and T3 in the Macintosh group increased significantly (P < 0.05). Compared with the Macintosh group,MBP and HR at T2,T3 of the Discopo group decreased significantly (P < 0.05). Conclusion Little effect of tracheal intubation with Discopo on cardiovascular response was observed in elderly hypertensive patients.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate the correlation of oxygen extraction rate (ERO2) with blood lactate clearance rate and cardiac output (CO) in the early stage of post-restoration of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) in patients resuscitated from cardiogenic cardiac arrest,and to analyze the relationship between the ERO2 and prognosis.Methods Fourteen patients successfully resuscitated from in-hospital cardiogenic cardiac arrest in the emergency ICU from October 2012 to January 2014 were retrospectively analyzed.These patients were assigned to survival group (n =5) or death group (n =9) as per the outcome at 72 h after ROSC.At admission (0 h),3,6 and 12 h after ROSC,arterial blood and venous blood were drawn to detect ERO2 and lactate clearance rate.Cardiac output (CO) was measured by thoracic impedance method,APACHE Ⅱ scores were assessed,and survival time was recorded.Results The patients in the death group died during the period of 12-72 hours after ROSC.The significantly decreased ERO2 at 6 h and 12 h after ROSC,and decreased blood lactate clearance rate and decreased CO at 3 h,6 h and 12 h after ROSC were found in the death group compared with the survival group (all P < 0.05).The ERO2 at 6 h and 12 h after ROSC was significantly positively related to blood lactate clearance rate (r =0.857,r =0.947,both P < 0.05) and CO (r =0.968,r =0.936,both P < 0.05) at 3 h,6 h and 12 h after ROSC.The ERO2 at 6 h and 12 h after ROSC was significantly negatively related to APPACHE Ⅱ score (r =-0.970,r =-0.973,both P < 0.05);APPACHE Ⅱ scores were significantly negatively correlated with blood lactate clearancerates (r=-0.880,r=-0.899,r=-0.850,all P<0.05) and CO (r=-0.876,r=-0.922,r=-0.916,all P<0.05) at 3 h,6 h and 12 h after ROSC.Conclusions The ERO2 at 6h after ROSC may be used to assess the severity and prognosis of patients resuscitated from cardiogenic cardiac arrest.

ABSTRACT

Objective To discuss the efficacy and safety of triamcinolone acetonide (TA)retrobulbar injection combined with panretinal photocoagulation (PRP)in the treatment of diabetic macular edema (DME), and to explain the advantages of this combination treatment method in treating DME.Methods Sixty-four cases (64 eyes) with macular edema due to diabetic retinopathy(DR)were randomly divided into combination treatment group(n=34,treated with TA retrobulbar injection combined with PRP)and PRP group(n=30,received PRP treatment only).The changes in the best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), the fovea centralis thickness (CMT), and the intraocular pressure(IOP)before treatment and in 1 month, 3 months, 6 months after treatment were compared. Results The BCVA was improved in both groups after treatment. However, the BCVA improvement in combination treatment group was statistically more significant (P<0.05)compared with PRP group in 1 month, 3 months and 6 months after treatment. The resolution of DME after treatment as compared with that before treatment,the CMT reduced in two groups in 1 month,3 months,6 months after treatment.At each stage,the CMT in combination treatment group was lower than PRP group (P<0.05 ). No complications of glaucoma, cataract,vitreous hemorrhage,retinal detachment,choroidal detachment,and endophthalmitis were found in all patients.Conclusion For the patients with DME,the combination treatment with TA retrobulbar injection and PRP has a better therapeutic effect than the sole PRP treatment in reducing the macular edema and improving the BCVA.The operation is simple and has less complication.

ABSTRACT

This study was aimed to reveal the species characteristics of Chinese patent medicines for antitussive ef-fect and provide references for developing new drugs. This research targeted Chinese patent medicines for antitussive effect which were included in the Pharmacopoeia of the People's Republic of China and the New National Chinese Patent Medicines as well as those characterized by keywords such as cough cure, cough alleviating, antitussive effect, cough, persistent cough. The analysis was made on the species characteristics, such as the number of Chinese patent medicines for antitussive effect, license number, ethnomedicine patent medicines, drugs for children use, protection of varieties of traditional Chinese medicine, the number of drugs, the generic names of drug, and drug forms. The results showed that 684 Chinese patent medicines for antitussive effect collected in this research had ac-counted for 8.60% of the total 7 260 of Chinese patent medicines. A total of 7 450 license numbers were approved, and 33% of the Chinese patent medicines shares one license number. One Chinese patent medicine owns 16.6 li-cense numbers on average. Ethnomedicine patent medicines had 3 Tibetan prescriptions such as the Shiwuwei Chenxiang pill and 4 Mongolian prescriptions, such as the Siwei Tumuxiang powder. Drugs for children accounted for 14%, including 9 forms. The type of the generic names of drug reached 16 and most of them originate from abbrevia-tions of the main drug in prescription. The number of drugs in prescription ranges from 8 to 16. Chinese patent medicines for antitussive effect involved 16 forms, of which the proportion of the use of solid preparation was higher than the liquid preparation. It was concluded that Chinese patent medicines for antitussive effect were characterized by such advantages such as a variety of species, various forms, the reasonable number of drugs, considerable medicine retail market share and drug for children use which can meet the clinical needs, and meanwhile some prob-lems, such as a lack of criteria for the generic names of drug, the homogenization of fierce competition, and inade-quacy of ethnomedicine patent medicines.
