ABSTRACT

Objective: To observe the clinical efficacy of Tuina (Chinese therapeutic massage) manipulation for pediatric adenoid hypertrophy (AH). Methods: A total of 60 children with AH were randomized into an observation group and a medication group, with 30 cases in each group. The observation group was treated with pediatric Tuina treatment, and the medication group was treated with 0.05% mometasone furoate nasal spray. The changes of main clinical symptom score, quality of life (QOL) score and X-ray nasopharynx lateral film were observed, and the clinical efficacy was evaluated. Results: The total effective rate of the observation group was 90.0%, and that of the medication group was 66.7%. The difference between the two groups was statistically significant (P<0.05). After treatment, the A/N value [ratio of adenoid thickness (A) and nasopharyngeal cavity width (N)] of posterior nasopharyngeal lateral film did not show significant change in either group (P>0.05). After treatment, the clinical symptom scores in both groups decreased, and the intra-group differences were statistically significant (P<0.001), but there was no statistical difference between the two groups (P>0.05). After treatment, the QOL scores of children in both groups decreased, and the intra-group differences were statistically significant (P<0.001), and the difference between the two groups was statistically significant (P<0.001). Conclusion: Tuina manipulation is effective in treating pediatric AH, and produces a better effect in improving traditional Chinese medicine symptoms and QOL than 0.05% mometasone furoate nasal spray.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To study the association of serum levels of trace elements with core symptoms in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).@*METHODS@#From September 2018 to September 2019, an investigation was performed for 1 020 children with ASD and 1 038 healthy children matched for age and sex in the outpatient service of grade A tertiary hospitals and special education institutions in 13 cities of China. Autism Behavior Checklist (ABC), Social Responsiveness Scale (SRS), and Childhood Autism Rating Scale (CARS) were used to assess the core symptoms of the children with ASD. The inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry was used to measure serum levels of trace elements magnesium, iron, copper, and zinc.@*RESULTS@#The children with ASD had significantly lower serum levels of magnesium, copper, and zinc than the healthy children (@*CONCLUSIONS@#The serum levels of magnesium and zinc may be associated with core symptoms in children with ASD, which requires further studies. The nutritional status of trace elements should be monitored for children with ASD in clinical practice.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To investigate the role of Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) in early brain injury in rats with subarachnoid hemorrhage and its effect on autophagy in hippocampus CA1 area. Methods: Totally 192 SD rats were randomly divided into sham operation group, SAH model group (model group), SAH+DMSO solvent group (solvent group), and SAH+TLR4 inhibitor group (CLI-095 group). Each group was divided into 24 h and 48 h 2 time points. The SAH model was established by internal carotid artery puncture. The drug-administered group was injected with 10 μL of DMSO solution or 100 μg/mL of CLI-095 solution of 10 μL before the preparation of SAH model. The behavioral changes of the rats were detected by Garcia score; the cerebral edema was detected by wet and dryweight method. The morphology of hippocampal CA1 neurons was observed by HE staining. Immunohistochemistry and immunoblotting were used to detect the expressions of TLR4, LC3 and Beclin1 in the hippocampus CA1 area. Results: Compared with the sham group, Garcia score was reduced at each time point (P<0.05). The degree of brain edema was increased and the number of viable neurons was reduced (P<0.05). The expressions of TLR4, LC3 and Beclin1 were increased in the hippocampus CA1 area in the model group (P<0.05). Compared with the model group, the Garcia score was increased at each time point (P<0.05). The degree of brain edema was reduced and the number of viable neurons was increased (P<0.05). The expressions of TLR4, LC3 and Beclin1 were reduced in the hippocampus CA1 area in the CLI-095 group (P<0.05). Conclusion: TLR4 may participate in the regulation of SAH-induced autophagy and aggravate the process of secondary brain injury in SAH.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To investigate the expressions of vasohibin-1 and MACC1 in lung squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC) and their associations with the clinicopathological characteristics of the patients.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>The expressions of vasohibin-1 and MACC1 proteins were examined with immunohistochemistry in 160 LSCC tissues and 80 normal lung tissues.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>The positivity rates of vasohibin-1 and MACC1 proteins were 59.4% and 11.3% in LSCC tissues, respectively, which were significantly higher than the rates in normal lung tissues (57.5% and 8.8%, respectively; P<0.05). The expressions of vasohibin-1 and MACC1 proteins were significantly correlated with the tumor grades, lymph node metastasis, and TNM stages (all P<0.05). Spearman correlation analysis indicated a positive correlation between vasohibin-1 expression and MACC1 expressions (P<0.001). Kaplan-Meier survival analysis showed that LSCC patients with a positive expression of vasohibin-1 had significantly shorter overall survival time than those negative for vasohibin-1; the overall survival time was also significantly shorter in patients positive for MACC1 than in those negative for MACC1 (both P<0.05). Multivariate COX regression analysis indicated that positive expressions of vasohibin-1 and MACC1 protein and TNM stage were independent prognostic factors of LSCC.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>Aberrant expressions of vasohibin-1 and MACC1 may participate in the development and promote invasion and metastasis of LSCC. The combined detection of vasohibin-1 and MACC1 expression may provide important evidence for predicting the progression and prognosis of LSCC.</p>
