ABSTRACT

Objective:To observe and evaluate the safety and efficacy of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in the treatment of eyes with macular edema (ME) secondary to branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) in Lhasa, Tibet.Methods:A retrospective case series. From September 2018 to January 2022, a total of 41 patients (41 eyes) with BRVO-ME, who were diagnosed in Department of Ophthalmology of Tibet Autonomous Region People’s Hospital, were included in this study. There were 21 eyes in 21 males and 20 eyes in 20 females. The median age was 53 (31,75) years. There were 24 patients with hypertension (58.8%, 24/41). Best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), ocular pressure, fundus color photography and optical coherence tomography (OCT) were performed in all eyes. The BCVA was performed using the international standard logarithmic visual acuity chart, which was converted into logarithm of the minimum angle of resolution (logMAR) BCVA for record. The foveal macular thickness (CMT) was measured by OCT. All eyes were treated with intravitreous injection of anti-VEGF drugs, once a month, among which 23 eyes (56.1%, 23/41) received intravitreous injection of ranibizumab (IVR), and 18 eyes (43.9%, 18/41) received intravitreous injection of conbercept (IVC), and were grouped accordingly. There was no significant difference in age ( Z=-0.447), gender composition ( Z=-0.485), logMAR BCVA ( t=-1.591), intraocular pressure ( t=-0.167) and CMT ( t=-1.290) between two groups ( P>0.05). During the follow-up, the same devices and methods were used at baseline to perform relevant examinations, and the changes of BCVA, intraocular pressure, CMT and new cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events were compared between baseline and the last follow-up. logMAR BCVA, intraocular pressure and CMT were compared between baseline and last follow-up using Student t test. The comparison of injection times and follow-up time between IVR group and IVC group was conducted by Mann-Whitney U test. Results:At baseline, logMAR BCVA, intraocular pressure, and CMT were 0.852±0.431, (12.5±2.5) mm Hg (1 mm Hg= 0.133 kPa), and (578.1±191.1) μm, respectively. At the last follow-up, the number of anti-VEGF drug treatments was (2.7±1.2) times; logMAR BCVA and CMT were 0.488±0.366 and (207.4±108.7) μm, respectively, with CMT > 250 μm in 14 eyes (34.1%, 14/41). Compared with baseline, BCVA ( t=4.129) and CMT ( t=-0.713) were significantly improved, with statistical significance ( P<0.001). The injection times of IVR group and IVC group were (2.6±0.9) and (3.0±1.5) times, respectively. There were no significant differences in the number of injection times ( t=-1.275), logMAR BCVA ( t=-0.492), intraocular pressure ( t=0.351) and CMT ( t=-1.783) between the two groups ( P>0.05). No new hypertension, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events occurred in all patients during follow-up. At the last follow-up, there were no eye complications related to treatment modalities and drugs. Conclusion:Short-term anti-VEGF treatment can improve the visual acuity of BRVO secondary ME patients and alleviate ME in Lhasa, Tibet. The safety and efficacy of ranibizumab and conbercept were similar.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To explore the local prevalence of early cognitive dysfunction after a stroke in some hospital of Qinghai province, analyze its risk factors and construct a risk factor model.Methods:A prospective cross-sectional survey was conducted among 854 stroke patients at 3 hospitals in Qinghai Province. The survey solicited demographic data, clinical data, and information about the respondents′ diet and leisure activities. Within 14 days after stroke onset, all of the participants′ cognitive performance was quantified using the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE). Those with scores ≤27 formed the cognitive impairment group ( n=569), while the rest were the normal cognition group ( n=285). Through univariate analysis and multivariate logistic regression analysis, the relationship between each factor and the outcome was clarified, and a prediction model was established in the form of a regression equation. The model′s receiver operating characteristics (ROC) curve was computed. Results:The incidence of acute cognitive impairment after stroke was 66.6%. Univariate analysis showed that there were significant differences between the two group in terms of age, sex, ethnicity, education, occupation, altitude, living with a spouse and social support. Stroke type, hemiplegia, a history of hypertension, and triglyceride and D-2 polymer levels were significant predictors, as were ADL score, leisure activity level, and weekly consumption of fruits, nuts and salt. The multivariate logistic regression analysis showed that age, being female, hemorrhagic stroke, hypertension, and living at high altitude were independent risk factors for cognitive impairment at the acute stage of stroke. However, education, occupation, leisure activity and consumption of triglycerides and nuts were independent protective factors. The prediction model showed an area under the ROC curve of 0.832, with sensitivity of 0.698 and specificity of 0.814.Conclusions:The prevalence of cognitive dysfunction in the acute stage of stroke is high in some hospital of Qinghai province. Age, being female, hemorrhagic stroke, hypertension and high altitude living are independent risk factors for stroke, while education, an occupation, leisure activity and triglyceride and nut consumption are protective factors. The risk factor model established in this study has good predictive ability with this population, with whom it can be used to formulate interventions to improve the life quality of stroke survivors.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To explore the clinical characteristics of patients with colchicine poisoning, and analyze the risk factors affecting the prognosis of colchicine poisoning and its value in the prognostic assessment.Methods:Patients with colchicine poisoning admitted to the Emergency Intensive Care Unit of the First Affiliated Hospital of Wenzhou Medical University from December 2017 to October 2022 were retrospectively included and divided into the survival group and death group according to the 14-d outcome. The general conditions of the two groups of patients were compared, and the clinical characteristics of patients with colchicine poisoning were analyzed. The differences of laboratory indexes, electrocardiogram, cardiac ultrasound and other clinical indexes during the first admission of patients between the two groups were compared, and their value in the prognosis evaluation of patients with colchicine poisoning was explored.Results:There were 41 patients with colchicine poisoning, aged 15-85 years, including 35 males and 6 females. There were 27 patients (65.9%) in the survival group and 14 patients (34.1%) in the death group, including accumulative poisoning (58.7%) and suicide poisoning (41.3%). The main clinical manifestations of patients with colchicine poisoning were gastrointestinal symptoms (82.93%), multiple organ dysfunction (78.05%), infectious fever (73.17%), myocardial damage (48.78%), coagulation dysfunction (46.34%), and bone marrow suppression (41.46%). Intestinal obstruction (19.51%) and rhabdomyolysis (2.44%) occurred in some patients. Multivariate Logistic regression analysis showed that the increase in absolute value of QTc interval ( OR=1.028, 95% CI: 1.000~1.056, P<0.05), lactic acid ( OR=1.599, 95% CI: 1.088~2.350, P<0.05), prothrombin time ( OR=1.205, 95% CI: 1.002~1.450, P<0.05), D-dimer ( OR=1.242, 95% CI: 1.089~1.417, P<0.05), and alkaline phosphatase ( OR=1.013, 95% CI: 1.002~1.024, P<0.05) were the risk factors for the prognosis of patients with colchicine poisoning. The decrease in the absolute value of ADL score ( OR=0.947, 95% CI: 0.909~0.988, P<0.05) and indirect bilirubin ( OR=0.756, 95% CI: 0.572~0.999, P<0.05) were the protective factors for the prognosis of patients with colchicine poisoning. D-dimer (AUC=0.913), lactic acid (AUC= 0.875) and alkaline phosphatase (AUC=0.770) had predictive value for the prognosis of patients with colchicine poisoning, and their cut-off values were 8.965 mg/L, 4.05 mmol/L and 230.5 U/L, respectively. Conclusions:The patients with colchicine poisoning have multiple organ dysfunction on admission, and are in a critical condition. The early levels of D-dimer, lactic acid and alkaline phosphatase could effectively predict the prognosis of patients with colchicine poisoning.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To explore the clinical characteristics of patients with paraquat mixed with diquat poisoning.Methods:The clinical data of 145 patients with paraquat mixed with diquat poisoning admitted to the Department of Emergency of the First Affiliated Hospital of Wenzhou Medical University from January 20, 2016 to March 31, 2022 were retrospectively analyzed. According to the detection results of plasma toxicants in patients with poisoning, the patients were divided into the paraquat diquat mixed group (mixed group), paraquat group (PQ group) and diquat group (DQ group). The clinical indexes, organ dysfunction, different poisoning doses and prognosis of the three groups were compared. Patients in the mixed group were divided into the survival group and death group according to their 90-day survival, and the differences of each index between the two groups were compared. Kaplan-Meier survival analysis was conducted for each index. After Log-rank test, multivariate Cox regression was used to analyze the risk factors of death in the mixed group.Results:A total of 31 patients were included in the mixed group, 92 patients in the PQ group, and 22 patients in the DQ group. There were significant differences in age, toxic dose, number of organ dysfunction, PSS score and APACHE II score among the three groups ( P<0.05). The main injured organs of the mixed group were gastrointestinal tract, kidney, liver, lung and nervous system. The proportion of organ damage in the mixed group was higher than that in the PQ group and DQ group. The white blood cell count, neutrophil count, HB, creatinine, AST, lactic acid, PT and APTT were statistically significant among the three groups ( P<0.05). In the mixed group, patients taking oral administration of < 20 mL all survived; 8 patients taking oral administration of 20 -50 mL died; 11 patients took oral administration of 51-100 mL and 8 (72.7%) died; and 10 patients took oral administration of more than 100 mL and 9 patients (90%) died. In the mixed group, patients with the concentration of diquat > 5000 ng/mL died. Among 31 patients with mixed poisoning, 30 patients (96.78%) had significantly higher concentrations of diquat than paraquat. There were no significant differences in sex, age, time from poisoning to hospitalization, ingestion amount, lymphocyte count, Hb, BNU, CK, total bilirubin, PH, and PT between the survival group and the death group ( P>0.05). Multivariate Cox regression analysis showed that the ingestion amount, plasma PQ concentration at admission, plasma DQ concentration at admission, and lactic acid were independent risk factors for death ( P<0.05). Conclusions:Paraquat mixed with diquat can cause multiple organ function damage. The main damaged organs are gastrointestinal tract, kidney, liver, lung and nervous system. Compared with PQ or DQ poisoning, mixed poisoning has a higher incidence of organ damage, a more serious condition, and a higher mortality rate. Ingestion amount, plasma PQ concentration at admission, plasma DQ concentration at admission and lactic acid were independent factors influencing the prognosis of mixed poisoning.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To access the clinical efficacy and safety of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) in treatment of IgA nephropathy (IgAN).Methods:The data of IgAN patients who were diagnosed by renal biopsy in the First Affiliated Hospital, College of Medicine, Zhejiang University from May 2016 to August 2020 and had been treated with HCQ for more than 6 months without other immunosuppressants were retrospectively analyzed. The efficacy and side effects were compared between groups according to the baseline urine protein/creatinine ratio (UPCR) or whether combined with renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system inhibitor (RAASi).Results:A total of 121 patients were enrolled, including 45 males (37.19%). At baseline, the median UPCR was 0.69(0.45, 1.00) g/g; the median estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) was 93.46(73.14, 115.67) ml·min -1·(1.73 m 2) -1; the median serum creatinine was 80.00(61.00, 98.00) μmol/L, and the serum albumin was (44.39±3.36) g/L. After HCQ treatment, UPCR and red blood cells were significantly decreased compared with baseline (all P<0.05). Triglyceride, total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol were also significantly decreased during the follow-up period. Serum creatinine, eGFR, serum albumin and serum uric acid remained stable. After 6 months of follow-up, the total remission rate was 56.88%, including 15.60% of partial remission and 41.28% of complete remission; at the end of follow-up, the median follow-up time was 280.00(214.00, 411.00) days and the total remission rate was 56.20%, including 9.92% of partial remission and 46.28% of complete remission. Group analysis showed that the remission rate was 60.53% ( n=76) and 48.48% ( n=33) at 6 months (Mann-Whitney U test, Z=-2.331, P=0.020) and 57.65% ( n=85) and 52.78% ( n=36) at the end of follow-up (Mann-Whitney U test, Z=-1.673, P=0.094) between patients with baseline UPCR<1 g/g and patients with baseline UPCR≥1 g/g; and the remission rate was 66.67% ( n=30) and 53.16% ( n=79) at 6 months (Mann-Whitney U test, Z=1.062, P=0.288) and 61.29% ( n=31) and 54.44% ( n=90) at the end of follow-up (Mann-Whitney U test, Z=0.930, P=0.352) between patients with single HCQ and patients with HCQ+RAASi. For side effects, the eGFR of 2 patients decreased by more than 30% compared with baseline, 1 patient relapsed and 1 patient developed blurred vision. Conclusions:HCQ is safe and effective for the treatment of IgAN.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To analyze Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM) prescriptions in COVID-19 patients in Shanghai area.Methods:Two hundred and forty patients were enrolled in the study, including 19 mild cases, 199 moderate cases, 16 severe case and 6 critical cases. The COVID-19 formula in Shanghai area was extracted and input in TCM Inheritance platform. Data association method such as software association rules,improved mutual information method,complex system entropy clustering,unsupervised entropy hierarchical clustering were used to analyze the frequency,herb flavor and meridian, combination rule and core combination of different types of Chinese herbs in the treatment of COVID-19 in Shanghai area.Results:According to the frequency analysis of 240 prescriptions of Chinese medicine,194 herbs were found. The COVID-19 formula herbs were all "cold", the frequency of use in mild, moderate, severe and critical cases was [46.02%(104/226), 46.31%(1 230/2 656), 37.06%(146/394), 39.24%(31/79)]. The flavor was mainly "bitter" and the frequency of use in 4 types of disease were [36.53%(122/332), 37.33%(1 445/3 857), 35.96%(205/564), 33.62%(39/113)]. Scutellaria was the most frequently used TCM of "bitter and cold". The drugs used were mainly lung,stomach and spleen meridians. By comparing the formulas between mild and moderate cases,herb combinations with the highest frequency were all "scutellaria glycyrrhiza" and "tangerine glycyrrhiza". The formulas for 19 mild cases were collected,and 197 drug combinations were counted, and 125 Chinese medicine association rules,including 13 Chinese herbs. The formulas were extracted in 199 moderate cases of COVID-19, a total of 92 drug combinations and 38 Chinese medicine association rules were collected,including 19 Chinese herbs. In 16 severe cases, a total of 62 drug combination models and 46 Chinese medicine association rules were collected,including 17 Chinese herbs. For the 6 critical cases,80 Chinese medicine prescriptions were combined,and 10 Chinese medicine association rules, including 12 Chinese herbs.Conclusions:The herbal prescriptions of COVID-19 in Shanghai are characterized by clearing away heat and resolving dampness. By analyzing prescription rules with complex system entropy clustering, association compatibility ideas of different types of traditional Chinese medicine are found to be different among four types of COVID-19 cases. Analyzing the connection rules in formulas, by using the theory of TCM and pharmacology of traditional Chinese medical formula in different COVID-19 patients may be helpful for general practitioners.

ABSTRACT

Chronic inflammation of the liver is a risk factor that promotes the progression of hepatocellular carcinoma, and in the presence of viral infection, enhanced Fc receptor signal will further aggravate inflammatory response and participate in the process of canceration. Polymeric immunoglobulin receptor (pIgR) not only plays a critical role in first-line anti-infection immunity, but also promotes the metastasis and growth of early-stage hepatocellular carcinoma. Identifying pIgR as a predictive index for metastatic potential in patients with early-stage liver cancer can help to promote the stratification and treatment decisions for such patients, which has a positive significance in improving patient prognosis. Targeted inhibition of the pIgR/Yes signal cascade as a potential treatment option may provide more treatment options for controlling tumor size to allow resection or transplantation.

ABSTRACT

Objective To evaluate the relationship between long non-coding RNAs (LncRNA) in tumor tissues and clinico-pathological features of hepatocllular carcinoma (HCC).Methods Using hepatocellular carcinoma gene database GSE36376,we conducted a study on eight LncRNAs which are associated with liver diseases and analyzed the correlation between these LncRNAs and HCC clinico-pathological characteristics.We also evaluated the potential effect of LncRNAs on HCC development.Results H19 was overexpressed in non-tumorous tissues of HCC (P < 0.05),while MEG3,HOXA13,KCNQ1OT1 were all upregulated in tumorous tissues (all P < 0.05).HULC level in HCC tumorous tissues was negatively correlated with AJCC staging,BCLC staging and tumor size (all P < 0.05).UCA1 was positively correlated with BCLC staging (r =0.135,P < 0.05).Univariate analysis and multivariate logistic analyses showed that UCA1 was a risk factor of intrahepatic metastasis of HCC (OR =6.054,95% CI =1.429 ~ 25.642,P < 0.05); in contrast,HULC overexpression in tumorous tissues played a positive role in HCC tumor size (OR=0.805,95%CI=0.678 ~0.956,P<0.05).Conclusion HULC in tumorous tissues suppressed HCC proliferation,while UCA1 was a risk factor of HCC aggressiveness.

ABSTRACT

Objective To observe the protective effect of Xiaohuangdecotion against liver damage inα-naphthylisothiocyanate (ANIT)- induced cholestasis in rats and probe the potential mechanisms.Methods Male Wistar rats (40) were randomly divided into a normal group, a model group, aXiaohuangdecotion treatment group, and a UDCA control group (10 for each). Except for rats in the normal group, ANIT solution (6 ml/kg) was administered in other rats by gavages for cholestasis model. After ANIT treated 48 h, rats inXiaohuangdecotion group and UDCA group were treated withXiaohuangdecotion (1.73 g/kg) and UDCA (10 mg/kg) respectively for 1 week. And, rats in the normal group and the model group were given an equal volume of saline. At the end of the experiment, liver function rats were examined. Liver histology was examined by HE staining, and CD68 factor was tested by immunohistochemistry and Western blot.Results Compared with the model group, the content of ALT (164.6 ± 53.4 U/Lvs. 208.4 ± 28.5 U/L), AST (247.6 ± 76.1 U/Lvs. 341.8 ± 32.8 U/L), ALP (601.0 ± 101.1 U/Lvs. 720.6 ± 123.3 U/L), TBiL (96.5 ± 18.1μmol/Lvs. 149.6 ± 30.2μmol/L), DBiL (73.7 ± 16.6μmol/Lvs. 140.3 ± 28.6μmol/L) and TBA (93.4 ± 13.0μmol/Lvs. 146.5 ± 38.9μmol/L) were significantly reduced in the treatment group (P<0.01 orP<0.05). Compared with the model group, CD68 level (7.08 ± 0.19 vs. 17.42 ± 0.48)were significantly reduced by intervention ofXiaohuangdecotion (P<0.01).ConclusionsXiaohuangdecotion could improve liver functions and reduce CD68 expression, leading to a good hepatoprotective and jaundice-relieving effects.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To observe the effect of simvastatin at different doses on the inflammatory factors and renal function in se-nile patients with diabetic kidney disease ( DKD) . Methods:Totally 160 cases of DKD patients were randomly divided into the control group, low dose group, conventional dose group and high dose group. All the patients were given the foundation treatment, and the low dose group, conventional dose group and high dose group was respectively given simvastatin 10, 20,40 mg·d-1 . The changes of in-flammatory cytokines (CRP, ICAM-1 and IL-1β) and renal index (BUN, Cr, UAER, 24hUpro and Uβ2-MG) among the groups were observed and compared before and after the 4-week treatment. Results:CRP in the high dose group after the treatment was significantly decreased when compared with that before the treatment and that in the control group after the treatment, and the difference was statisti-cally significant (P0.05). BUN in the four groups after the treatment had no obvious change when compared with that before the treatment, and there was no significant difference among the groups (P>0. 05). Cr and UAER in the four groups after the treatment were significantly decreased (P0. 05). Conclusion:Simvastatin can improve diabetic nephropathy conditions in two aspects of inflammation factors and renal in-dex, and simvastatin at high dose shows more advantages.
