To investigate the effects of aerobic exercise and resveratrol on janus kinase 2(JAK2) and transforming growth factor-β1(TGF-β1) in renal tissue of type 2 diabetes rats and its mechanism. Methods: The model of type 2 diabetic rats was established through SD rats fed high-fat diet for 5 weeks together with intraperitoneal infecting after a low dose of STZ. The rats were randomly divided into diabetic control group(DC), diabetic exercise group(DE), diabetic resveratrol group(DR), diabetic exercise and resveratrol group(DER), normal control group(NC), 12 rats in each group. Exercise-related groups performed 8 weeks treadmill exercise (20 m/min, 60 min/day). Resveratrol was administered to drug-related groups for 8 weeks (45 mg/kg, 7 day/week). Eight weeks later, we examined blood glucose concentrations, 24 h microalbuminuria(UA), serum creatinine(Scr), blood urea nitrogen(BUN), and the expressions of TGF-β1, janus kinase 2(JAK2) and JAK2 mRNA in renal tissue. After eight weeks of intervention, compared with NC group, the concentrations blood glucose, 24 h UA, Scr, BUN, the expressions of TGF-β1, JAK2 and JAK2 mRNA were increased significantly in DC group(P<0.05). Compared with DC group, the concentrations of blood glucose, 24 h UA, Scr, BUN, the expressions of TGF-β1, JAK2 and JAK2 mRNA were decreased significantly in DE group, DR group and DER group(P<0.05). Exercise, resveratrol and combined intervention may decrease the expressions of JAK2 mRNA, JAK2 and TGF-β1, which further attenuate renal injury for type 2 diabetes. The renal protective effect produced by exercise and resveratrol combined intervention is better than that produced by exercise or resveratrol intervention alone.

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>This study aimed to investigate the expression and correlation of secreted frizzled-related protein 1 (SFRP1) and β-catenin in gingival tissues of patients with chronic periodontitis (CP). The role of the classical Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway in the development of periodontitis was also explored.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>Twenty-eight patients with CP (CP group) were enrolled in this study. Among them, 16 cases were moderate CP, and 12 demonstrated severe CP. Twelve healthy cases comprised the controls (normal group). Gingival tissue was collected, and the probing depth, bleeding index, and clinical attachment loss were recorded. The expression levels of SFRP1 and β-catenin were detected by immunohistochemistry, and staining intensity was evaluated by double scoring method. SPSS 19.0 was used for statistical analysis.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>The staining strength scores of SFRP1 and β-catenin were 2.16±0.65 and 1.12±0.51 in the normal group, 3.57±0.45 and 2.36±0.49 in the CP group, 3.61±0.40 and 2.30±0.44 in the moderate CP group, and 3.52±0.52 and 2.45±0.55 in the severe CP group, respectively. The expression of SFRP1 and β-catenin in the CP group was higher than that in the normal group (P<0.01). A significant difference was noted between the normal group and the moderate and severe CP groups (P<0.01) but none between the moderate and severe CP groups (P>0.05). A positive correlation was found between the expression of SFRP1 and β-catenin (r=0.657, P<0.01). The expression levels of β-catenin and SFRP1 were related to periodontal indexes. The correlation between the expression of SFRP1 and probing depth was most significant (r=0.723, P<0.01), as well as that between β-catenin and bleeding index (r=0.697, P<0.01).</p><p><b>CONCLUSIONS</b>Patients with CP exhibit elevated expression of SFRP1 and β-catenin in gingival tissues, and this event is related to the degree of periodontal destruction. Abnormal expression of SFRP1 and β-catenin may promote the development of periodontitis.</p>

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To investigate the changes in serum neuron-specific enolase (NSE) and serum ferritin (SF) in patients with pneumoconiosis and their relationship with the onset of pneumoconiosis.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>The serum NSE and SF levels in the peripheral blood of patients with pneumoconiosis were measured by electrochemical fluorescence immunoassay.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>The patients with first-stage pneumoconiosis and second-stage pneumoconiosis had significantly higher serum NSE and SF levels than the control group (23.0264±14.0410 and 44.9776±26.5208 ng/ml vs 8.1480±3.7512 ng/ml, P < 0.05; 267.2515±186.5809 and 579.1371±433.9326 ng/ml vs 120.8613±74.2809 ng/ml, P < 0.05), and the patients with second-stage pneumoconiosis had significantly higher serum NSE and SF levels than those with first-stage pneumoconiosis (P < 0.05). After treatment, the serum NSE level decreased significantly in the patients with pneumoconiosis (21.1675±17.5942 ng/ml vs 33.4490±21.6948 ng/ml, P < 0.05), but it was still significantly higher than that in the control group (P < 0.05). The treatment did not produce significant changes in SF level among these patients (P > 0.05).</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>Patients with pneumoconiosis have elevated serum NSE and SF levels, which may be related to the onset and progression of this disease.</p>

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To evaluate the feasibility of HLA haploidentical peripheral blood hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (PBSCT) for patients with β thalassemia major.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>Sixteen patients with β thalassemia major received HLA haploidentical PBSCT from parents. Two conditioning regimens were used. Regimen A was adopted before December 2007, which consisted of fludarabine (total 150 mg/m²), busulfex (total 520 mg/m²), cyclophosphamide (CTX, total 100 mg/kg), antithymocyte globulin (ATG, total 10 mg/kg) and total body irradiation of 3 Gy. Regimen B was adopted after December 2007, which consisted of fludarabine (total 240 mg/m²), busulfex (total 520 mg/m²), CTX (total 100 mg/kg), and ATG (total 10 mg/kg). Combination of cyclosporin (CsA), methotrexate (MTX) and mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) were used for prophylaxis of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD).</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>Of 16 patients, 14 (87.5%) had sustained engraftment. The median days of neutrophil exceeding 0.5 × 10⁹/L and platelet exceeding 20 × 10⁹/L were 13 days (range 10 - 17 days) and 15 days (range 14 - 20 days) after PBSCT, respectively. Complete chimerism was achieved in all the 14 patients at one month after PBSCT. One patient lost his graft with autologous reconstitution 52 days after transplantation. Four patients had grade II-IV acute GVHD and one patient had chronic extensive GVHD. In the 49-month median follow-up duration, 13 of 16 patients were alive in disease-free situation.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>HLA haploidentical PBSCT, which could provide stable and sustained engraftment for thalassemia major patients with no HLA identical donor, is a promising treatment strategy.</p>

OBJECTIVE@#To investigate the transduction efficiency of recombinant adeno-associated virus 2 ( rAAV2) in human bone marrow CD34+ hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells and mesenchyme stem cells.@*METHODS@#The rAAV2 containing green fluorescent protein genes (rAAV2/GFP) were constructed, packaged and purified. CD34+ hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells and mesenchyme stem cells were infected with the rAAV2/GFP. After transduction for 48 hours, the expression of GFP was detected under fluorescence microscope. Furthermore, the transduction efficiency of AAV transduced CD34+ with hydroxyurea (HU) pretreatment and that of untreated were compared.@*RESULTS@#GFP genes were expressed in 5.3% +/- 1.7% CD34+ cells. After pretreatment with HU, the expression of the GFP gene in CD34+ cells increased to 13.2% +/- 2.8%, and 23% +/- 3.6% mesenchyme stem cells expressed the GFP gene. Conclusion The transduction efficiency of mesenchyme stem cells is higher than that of CD34+ hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells. HU pretreatment can obviously increase the transduction efficiency of CD34+ hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells.
