OBJECTIVE@#To assess the impact of early relapse (ER) after autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplan-tation (AHSCT) on overall survival (OS) for multiple myeloma (MM) patients.@*METHODS@#Clinical data of 37 patients with MM undergoing AHSCT in department of hematology of Shanxi Bethune Hospital from January 2012 to December 2017 were retrospectively analyzed. The effect of ER on OS of patients was analyzed. The effects of international staging system (ISS) staging, cytogenetics, pre-transplant efficacy, minimal residual disease, and age on OS of the patients were also analyzed respectively.@*RESULTS@#Among the 37 patients, 13 cases (35.1%) had ER, and 24 cases (64.9%) had non-ER. 3 patients with ER had extramedullary disease, but none with non-ER showed extramedullary disease. More than or equal to very good partial rate (VGPR) in patients with ER and without ER were 3 cases (23.1%) and 15 cases (62.5%), respectively, and the curative effect of the former was significantly lower than that of the latter (P<0.05). The median follow-up time was 31 (12-96) months, and median OS time was 93 months in all the patients. The median survival time of patients with ER was 17 months, and the median progression free survival was 7 months, both were significantly shorter than 93 months and 38 months of patients with non-ER (P<0.05). Univariate analysis showed that the OS was affected by ER, cytogenetic abnormalities (FISH), and ≥VGPR before transplantation. Multivariate analysis showed that ER was an independent prognostic factor.@*CONCLUSION@#The prognosis of patients with ER after AHSCT in newly diagnosed MM is poor. ER is an independent prognostic factor of survival.

OBJECTIVE@#To evaluate the value of serum free light chain (sFLC) κ/λ ratio (sFLCR) on the diagnosis and prognosis of patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma(MM), and explore the effect of sFLCR normalization on the prognosis of patients after 4 courses of induction therapy.@*METHODS@#The clinical data of 43 newly diagnosed MM patients from January 2014 to January 2019 were analyzed retrospectively. Immunoturbidimetry was used to detect the expression levels of sFLC κ and λ. According to the ratio of involved and uninvolved sFLC, using 100 as a boundary, the MM patients were divided into the high ratio group (sFLCR≥100 or ≤0.01) and the low ratio group (0.010.05).@*CONCLUSION@#Patients in the high ratio group at the initial diagnosis have worse renal function, later stage of disease, lower deep remission rate, earlier disease progression, shorter survival time, and worse clinical prognosis.

OBJECTIVE@#To investigate the effects of inhibiting proliferation and inducing apoptosis of low-dose triptolide and sorafenib alone or in combination on FLT3-ITD acute myeloid leukemia cell line MV4-11 and STAT5 pathway.@*METHODS@#The MV4-11 cells were treated with low dose triptolide(IC) and sorafenib(IC) alone or in combination for 48 hours. The cell proliferation and inhibition were detected by using CCK-8 kit, the cell apoptosis was detected by flow cytometry, the expression of FLT3,STAT5 in mRNA and protein levels was detected by RT-PCR and Western blot respectively.@*RESULTS@#The treatment of MV4-11 cells with low dose triptolide and sorafenib alone and in combination for 48 hours could inhibit cell proliferation and induce cell apoptosis, moreover the inhibitory rate and apoptotic rate of MV4-11 cells in drug-combination group both were higher than those in single drug group. The mRNA expression and protein expression of FLT3,STAT5 signaling pathway in drug combination group were significantly lower than those in single drug group.@*CONCLUSION@#Low-dose triptolide combined with sorafenib can synergistically inhibit the proliferation and induce the apoptosis of MV4-11 cells, which may be related with the inhibition of FLT3 and STAT5 pathway.

The purpose of the present study is to investigate the effect of isoliquiritigenin (ISL) on the cerebral basilar artery in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR). The change of SHR systolic pressure was measured by tail artery pressure measurement instrument before and after ISL intervention. After perfusion with 1 × 10(-5) mol/L phenylephrine (PE), 1 × 10(-5) mol/L PE + 1 × 10(-4) mol/L ISL and 1 × 10(-5) mol/L PE, the diameter of the cerebral basilar artery separated from SHR was measured by pressure myograph. The current of large-conductance calcium-activated potassium (BKCa) channel of SHR single vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) was recorded by whole-cell patch-clamp technique and the cGMP levels of basilar artery was evaluated by ELISA. The results showed that 1) after intervention with ISL for 14 days, the systolic pressure of SHR was decreased from (218.3 ± 1.6) mmHg to (119.2 ± 1.9) mmHg (P < 0.01), but there was no difference in systolic pressure between ISL-treated SHR and Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) rat; 2) 1 × 10(-4) mol/L ISL relaxed the SHR cerebral basilar artery (P < 0.01); 3) ISL significantly increased the outward current density of VSMC from SHR cerebral basilar artery (P < 0.01, n = 6), and the effect could be reversed by 1 × 10(-3) mol/L TEA (a BKCa channel inhibitor), but 3 × 10(-4) mol/L 4-AP (a Kv channel inhibitor) had no effect on the enhanced current density induced by ISL in VSMC; 4) 1 × 10(-5) mol/L Methylene blue (a sGC inhibitor) significantly inhibited the ISL-enhanced current density in VSMC (P < 0.05, n = 6); 5) ISL significantly increased the cGMP level of SHR basilar artery (P < 0.05, n = 6). The results suggest that the role of the ISL in relaxing the SHR cerebral basilar artery may be related to its effect in enhancing BKCa current by increasing the levels of cGMP in the VSMC.

Objective To investigate the effect of visfatin on the NG2 cell number in the brain of normal rats and rats with cerebral ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury. Methods Transient focal cerebral I/R model was established by middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) and a monofilament suture via intraluminal approach in rats. Thirty adult male Wistar-Kyoto rats were randomly divided in to four groups, namely, a sham operation group (Sham), a cerebral I/R model group(MCAO), Sham+FK866(a specific inhibitor of visfatin) group, and cerebral I/R+FK866 group. Animats nn the latter two groups were intragastsically given FK866 (1 mg/[kg • d]) for a consecutive of 14 days; Sham operation or MCAO was pefformed at the 7th day of FK866 treatment. The NG2 cells were observed by immunofluorescence staining in animal brains at the 7th day after surgery. Results There was no signficant difference in NG2 cell numbeis between the Sham group and Sham + FK866 group. Cerebral I/R model group had significantly less NG2 cells in the core region of infarction(P<0. 01) and significantly more in the penumbra area (P<0. 01) compared with the Sham group, with no significant change in the contralateral side. The NG2 cell numbers were not significantly different between the cerebral I/ R model group and cerebral I/R + FK866 group in the above mentioned areas. Conclusion Inhibition of visfatin shows no noticeable effect on NG2 cell number in the brains of normal and cerebral I/R rats, indicating that the neuroprotective effect of visfatin is not assoiiated with NG2 cells.

This study was purposed to construct a fusion DNA vaccine containing WT1 multi-epitope and stimulating epitope of mycobacterium tuberculosis heat shock protein 70 and to detect its expression and immunogenicity. On the basis of published data, a multi-epitope gene (Multi-WT1) containing three HLA *0201-restricted CTL epitopes: one HLA*2402-restricted CTL epitope, two Th epitopes and one universal Th Pan-DR epitope (PADRE) was constructed. DNA-coding sequence was modified by Computer-Aided Design (CAD) to optimize proteasome-mediated epitope processing through the introduction of different amino acid spacer sequences. The synthetic nucleotide sequence was then inserted into an eukaryotic vector to construct the plasmid pcDNA3.1-WT1.For enhancing CTL activity, HSP70 fragment including stimulatory domain P407-426 was amplified by PCR from mycobacterial HSP70 gene and cloned into pcDNA3.1(+). Then Multi-WT1 was fused to the N-terminal of pcDNA3.1-mHSP70(407-426) to make the multi-epitope fusion gene vaccine pcDNA3.1-WT1-mHSP70(407-426). HEK-293T cells were transfected with this vaccine and the expressed product was identified by RT-PCR. Enzyme-linked immunospot assay (ELISPOT) was used to evaluate the immunological responses elicited by vaccine. The results showed that the most of WT1 epitopes could be correctly cleaved which was confirmed by software Net Chop 3.1 and PAPROCIanalysis. RT-PCR showed correct expression of target gene in HEK293T cells and ELISPOT showed specific T-cell responses. It is concluded that the eukaryotic expression vector PcDNA3.1-WT1-mHSP70(407-426) fusion gene has been successfully constructed and the immunity response is also elicited, which is a good candidate for further research of DNA vaccine.
