ABSTRACT

@#Macular edema(ME)is a typical non-specific complication of uveitis, one of the common causes of visual impairment in patients with non-infectious uveitis(NIU). The treatment of uveitis related ME is still challenging in clinic. Various agents, such as corticosteroids, anti-vascular endothelial growth factors, and immune-modulators, have been used for combating uveitis related ME. However, there is not enough evidence to support the efficacy of any of these agents. Intravitreal dexamethasone implant(IDI, Ozurdex©; Allergan Inc, Irvine, CA)is a widely administered corticosteroid for the long-term management of uveitic ME in certain cases. Recent studies have demonstrated that IDI effectively improves uveitis related ME, and this effect could be sustained for at least six months with close monitoring and retreatment, as needed. Currently, we reviewed major clinical studies about IDI in eyes with NIU and briefly overviewed their results.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>In previous studies, we immunized mice with Ebola recombinant protein vaccine and gene vector vaccine. Both stimulated high levels of humoral immunity. In this work, we constructed a pseudovirus containing Ebola membrane proteins to verify whether the two immunization strategies can induce neutralizing antibodies in mice.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>A pseudovirus containing an Ebola virus membrane protein based on the HIV-1 viral gene sequence was constructed and evaluated using a known neutralizing antibody. The titer of the neutralizing antibody in the sera of mice immunized with the recombinant protein and the gene vector vaccine was examined using a neutralization test.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>Ebola pseudovirus was successfully prepared and applied for neutralizing antibody detection. Immunological experiments showed that recombinant protein GP-Fc and gene vaccine pVR-modGP-Fc had good immunogenicity. The titer of the bound antibody in the serum after 8 weeks of immunization in mice was more than 1:105, and the recombinant protein induced greater humoral immunity. The results of the neutralization test based on the Ebola pseudovirus system demonstrated that both vaccines induced production of protective antibodies, while the gene vaccine induced a higher titer of neutralizing antibodies.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>An Ebola pseudovirus detection system was successfully established and used to evaluate two Ebola vaccines. Both produced good immunogenicity. The findings lay the foundation for the development of new Ebola vaccines and screening for neutralizing monoclonal antibodies.</p>

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To develop a rapid, highly sensitive, and quantitative method for the detection of NT-proBNP levels based on a near-infrared point-of-care diagnostic (POCT) device with wide scope.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>The lateral flow assay (LFA) strip of NT-proBNP was first prepared to achieve rapid detection. Then, the antibody pairs for NT-proBNP were screened and labeled with the near-infrared fluorescent dye Dylight-800. The capture antibody was fixed on a nitrocellulose membrane by a scribing device. Serial dilutions of serum samples were prepared using NT-proBNP-free serum series. The prepared test strips, combined with a near-infrared POCT device, were validated by known concentrations of clinical samples. The POCT device gave the output of the ratio of the intensity of the fluorescence signal of the detection line to that of the quality control line. The relationship between the ratio value and the concentration of the specimen was plotted as a work curve. The results of 62 clinical specimens obtained from our method were compared in parallel with those obtained from the Roche E411 kit.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>Based on the log-log plot, the new method demonstrated that there was a good linear relationship between the ratio value and NT-proBNP concentrations ranging from 20 pg/mL to 10 ng/mL. The results of the 62 clinical specimens measured by our method showed a good linear correlation with those measured by the Roche E411 kit.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>The new LFA detection method of NT-proBNP levels based on the near-infrared POCT device was rapid and highly sensitive with wide scope and was thus suitable for rapid and early clinical diagnosis of cardiac impairment.</p>

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To investigate the role of Gemin3 in cell proliferation and its regulation pathway.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>Using co-immunoprecipitation and GST pull-down assay to determine the domain of Gemin3 and p53 binding and interaction in vitro and in vivo. To check the effect of Gemin3 on p53 by luciferase reporter assay. Stable Gemin3 knock-down cell lines were generated by lentivirus-delivered small hairpin RNA then puromycin selection. Real-time PCR was used to confirm the effect of Gemin3 level on p53 and its downstream genes, and flow cytometry was used to analyze the effect of Gemin3 on apoptosis.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>The C-terminal of Gemin3 interacted with the DNA binding domain of p53. The p53 reporter gene, PA3M-p53 and increasing amount of GFP-Gemin3 were co-transfected into Saos-2 cells. Gemin3 repressed p53 expression at transcription level. Real-time PCR indicated that the expression of p53, p21 and Bax in Gemin3 knock-down cells was higher than that in the control cells. Western blot showed Gemin3 knock-down cells had a higher p53 espression. Flow cytometric assay showed that knock-down Gemin3 expression led to an increased cell apoptosis.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>Gemin3 binds with p53 forming a complex and plays an anti-apoptotic role by repressing the p53 expression.</p>

ABSTRACT

In order to analysis the effect of fetal lung mesenchymal stem cell (FL-MSC) on differentiation of umbilical cord blood mononuclear cells (MNC) into megakaryocytes, the fresh umbilical cord blood MNC were isolated and divided into 2 groups in the culture added with TPO, IL-11 and heparin. In the first group MNC were cultured alone and in the second group MNC were cocultured with FL-MSC. The cells were collected at day 7, 10, 14 for cell counting and detection of CD41a and CD61 by flow cytometry. The morphology and ultrastructure of megakaryocytes were observed by immunohistochemistry method and transmission electron microscopy at day 14. The content of DNA was analyzed by flow cytometry at day 14 too. The results indicated that the of CD41a+ and CD61+ cells were obtained mostly in the second group at day 10 and were in 4.5 and 4.7 fold as much as the MNC cultured alone. The morphology and ultrastructure of megakaryocytes showed immature of nuclei in both of two groups. It is concluded that the FL-MSC could effectively enhance the production of CD41a+ and CD61+ cells, where the effect on nucleus development of the young megakaryocyte was not obviously shown.
