ABSTRACT

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can inhibit the proliferation of leukemia cells and induce apoptosis. The signaling pathways involved mainly include PI3K/Akt pathway, MAPK signaling pathway, JAK-STAT pathway, Wnt pathway and mitochondrial pathway. Among them, the mitochondrial apoptotic pathway is affected by many key apoptotic pathways, which plays a terminal role in promoting apoptosis. At present, there is a great need for the systematic and comprehensive research on various signaling pathways and intermolecular interactions.

ABSTRACT

ObjectiveTo investigate the efficacy of Bushen Shengxue prescription and Yiqi Yangxue prescription in the treatment of chronic aplastic anemia and the effect on T cell subsets and the expression of T-box expressed in T cells (T-bet) and GATA binding protein 3 (GATA3). MethodA total of 585 patients with chronic aplastic anemia who were treated in 19 hospitals in China from May 2018 to June 2021 were enrolled. With the prospective, double-blind and randomized control methods, the patients were randomized into three groups: kidney deficiency group, Qi and blood deficiency group, and control group. The three groups were respectively treated with Bushen Shengxue prescription granule, Yiqi Yangxue prescription granule, and Placebo (half the dose of Bushen Shengxue formula granules). In addition, all of them were given oral cyclosporin and androgen. The treatment lasted 6 months, with 3 months as a course. The blood routine indexes, T cell subsets, and fusion genes T-bet and GATA3 before and after treatment were analyzed, and the safety indexes were monitored. ResultDuring the observation, a total of 75 cases dropped out and 18 were rejected. Finally, 161 cases in the kidney deficiency group, 164 in the Qi and blood deficiency group, and 167 in the control group were included. After 6 months of treatment, the total effective rate was 98.8% (159/161) in the kidney deficiency group, which was higher than the 79.9% (131/164) in the Qi and blood deficiency group (χ2=30.135, P<0.01) and the 61.7% (103/167) in the control group (χ2=70.126, P<0.01). The total effective rate was higher in the Qi and blood deficiency group than in the control group (χ2=13.232, P<0.01). After treatment, the hemoglobin (HGB) content increased significantly in three groups (P<0.05) as compared with that before treatment, particularly the kidney deficiency group (P<0.01). After treatment, the white blood cell (WBC) count and platelet (PLT) count in the kidney deficiency group and the control group increased compared with those in the Qi and blood deficiency group (P<0.01). There was no specific difference in neutrophils (ANC) after treatment among the three groups. At the same time point, the level of T helper type 1 (Th1) cells, Th1/Th2 ratio (P<0.05), level of CD4+, and CD4+/CD8+ ratio (P<0.05) were significantly low in the kidney deficiency group among three groups. There was no significant difference in CD19-, HLA/DR+, and CD25+ between the kidney deficiency group and the other two groups, but the T-bet of the kidney deficiency group and the control group was lower than that of the Qi and blood deficiency group (P<0.05). ConclusionBushen Shengxue prescription exerts therapeutic effect on the aplastic anemia by improving the immunoregulatory mechanism, inhibiting the activity of immune system, modulating T cell subsets, suppressing Th1 and CD4+, and promoting bone marrow hematopoiesis. Moreover, it is safe with little side effects, which is worthy of further promotion.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To analyze the etiology of hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD) cases collected from Wenshan prefecture from 2014 to 2018 and the molecular epidemiology of coxsackievirus A6(CV-A6).Methods:Viruses were isolated by RD cells and Hep-2 cells from stool samples collected from HFMD patients in Wenshan prefecture from 2014 to 2018. Virus RNA was extracted and virus VP4/VP2 junction region sequence was firstly amplified and sequenced by MD91 and OL68-1 primer pairs, then the virus serotype was determined. Virus entire VP1 gene sequences were determined by relative primer pairs according to the references. The reference sequences of CV-A6 virus entire VP1 gene were downloaded from the GenBank and the phylogenetic tree was constructed and the genetic characteristics and molecular epidemiology were analyzed.Results:During five years of study period, a total of 581 strains of enteroviruses (EVs) was isolated with an isolation rate of 20.40% (581/2 848). Among 581 strains, 74 strains were CV-A6, accounting for 12.74% (74/581); 124 were CV-A16, accounting for 21.34% (124/581); 374 were EV-A71, accounting for 64.37% (374/581); nine were other EVs, accounting for 1.55% (9/581). The entire VP1 sequences of 74 CV-A6 strains were filtered by constructing a phylogenetic tree and the completely same strains were excluded from analysis. We finally analyzed the phylogenetic characteristics of 22 strains isolated in this study with 52 reference strains. The results showed that all 22 Wenshan strains belonged to D3a sub-genotype, of which 21 strains belonged to cluster 1, and only one strain belonged to cluster 2.Conclusions:From 2014 to 2018, the outbreaks of HFMD in Wenshan prefecture were mainly caused by EV-A71, CV-A16 and CV-A6, accounting for 64.37%, 21.34% and 12.74% respectively. Phylogenetic analysis showed, similar to the situation in China, the sub-genotype D3a of CV-A6 was the predominant virus and the cluster 1 was the main sub-genotype in this outbreak.

ABSTRACT

Objective To analyze the genetic characteristics of VP1 3'region of human coxsack-ievirus B2 (CV-B2) strains isolated from Yunnan province. Methods RT-PCR and gene sequencing were performed to analyze the VP1 3'region of 15 CV-B2 strains isolated from acute flaccid paralysis ( AFP) cases during 2005 to 2006, healthy children in 2013 and hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD) cases in 2014 in Yunnan province. CV-B2 VP1 gene reference sequences were downloaded from the Genbank. Nucleotide (nt) and amino acid (aa) diversities were calculated by MEGA5. 2 software and a phylogenetic tree was constructed. Genetic and molecular epidemiological characteristics of CV-B2 strains circulating in Yunnan province were analyzed. Results A total of 15 CV-B2 strains were isolated, which were one from 232 AFP cases in 2005, one from 240 AFP cases in 2006, 12 from 400 healthy children in 2013 and one from 500 HFMD cases in 2014. Phylogenetic analysis of the 15 CV-B2 strains in Yunnan province and those down-loaded from the GenBank showed that CV-B2 could be genetically divided into five genotypes. The prototype strain Ohio-1 and one strain (01-1) isolated in Taiwan in 1988 belonged to genotype 1. Strains isolated in France in 2006, 2007 and 2010 belonged to genotype 2. Strains isolated in Yunnan, Shandong, Henan, Fu-jian and Taiwan belonged to genotype 3. Strains isolated in Russia, Yunnan AFP cases in 2005 and 2006 and India belonged to genotype 4. Strains isolated in Taiwan, Shandong and New South Wales, Australia be-longed to genotype 5. Different genotypes distributed in different countries/areas with some confined within specific countries/areas. Conclusions The 12 strains isolated from healthy children and one from HFMD cases in Yunnan province belonged to genotype 3, while the two strains isolated from AFP cases belonged to genotype 4. Diversities in nt and aa sequences between the strains isolated from the healthy children and HFMD case were only 0. 76% and 0. 03%, respectively, indicating that they might come from the same transmission source. However, the nt and aa diversities between the isolates of genotype 3 ( from healthy children and HFMD case) and genotype 4 (from AFP cases in 2005 and 2006) were 15. 11%-15. 22% and 2. 76%-2. 72%, respectively. Correlation of CV-B2 with AFP and HFMD was worthy of further study.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To explore the efficacy and safety of deferasirox in aplastic anemia (AA)patients with iron overload.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>A single arm, multi- center, prospective, open- label study was conducted to evaluate absolute change in serum ferritin (SF)from baseline to 12 months of deferasirox administration, initially at a dose of 20 mg·kg(-1)·d(-1), and the safety in 64 AA patients with iron overload.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>All patients started their deferasirox treatment with a daily dose of 20 mg · kg(-1) ·d(-1). The mean actual dose was (18.6±3.60) mg · kg(-1)·d(-1). The median SF decreased from 4 924 (2 718- 6 765)μg/L at baseline (n=64) to 3 036 (1 474- 5 551)μg/L at 12 months (n=23) with the percentage change from baseline as 38%. A median SF decrease of 651 (126-2 125)μg/L was observed at the end of study in 23 patients who completed 12 months' treatment, the median SF level decreased by 1 167(580-4 806)μg/L [5 271(3 420-8 278)μg/L at baseline; 3 036(1 474-5 551)μg/L after 12 months' treatment; the percentage change from baseline as 42% ] after 12 months of deferasirox treatment. The most common adverse events (AEs) were increased serum creatinine levels (40.98%), gastrointestinal discomfort (40.98%), elevated liver transaminase (ALT: 21.31%; AST: 13.11%)and proteinuria (24.59%). The increased serum creatinine levels were reversible and non-progressive. Of 38 patients with concomitant cyclosporine use, 12(31.8%)patients had two consecutive values >ULN, 10(26.3%)patients had two consecutive values >1.33 baseline values, but only 1(2.6%)patient's serum creatinine increased more than 1.33 baseline values and exceeded ULN. For both AST and ALT, no patients experienced two post- baseline values >5 ×ULN or >10 × ULN during the whole study. In AA patients with low baseline PLT count (less than 50 × 10(9)/L), there was no decrease for median PLT level during 12 months' treatment period.</p><p><b>CONCLUSIONS</b>AA patients with iron overload could achieve satisfactory efficacy of iron chelation by deferasirox treatment. The drug was well tolerated with a clinically manageable safety profile and no major adverse events.</p>

ABSTRACT

Objective To observe the effects of hydrocortisone on the rate of return of spontaneous circulation(ROSC)and the outcome of patients with cardiac arrest(CA)and cardiopulmonary resuscitation(CPR). Methods A cohort study was conducted,78 non-traumatic patients with CA were divided into hydrocortisone group (31 cases)and control group(47 cases). Conventional treatments were given in the two groups after admission,and additionally intravenous 100 mg hydrocortisone was given to the hydrocortisone group during resuscitation. The ROSC rate and prognosis were compared between the two groups. Multivariate logistic regression analysis was used to predict the impact factor of ROSC. Results The ROSC rate and 24-hour survival rate in the hydrocortisone group were significantly higher than those of the control group(ROSC rate:58.1% vs. 40.4%,24-hour survival rate:48.4%vs. 36.2%,both P<0.05). There were no significant differences between the hydrocortisone and the control groups in duration of CPR〔minute:17.1(6-45)vs. 15.8(7-48)〕,acute physiology and chronic health evaluation Ⅱ(APACHE Ⅱ)score in survivors(37.2±8.2 vs. 36.1±8.2),the survival rate(12.9% vs. 12.8%)and hospital discharge rate(6.4%vs. 6.4%)in 7 days. Hydrocortisone〔odds ratio(OR)=3.12,95%confidence interval(95%CI)-1.18-8.29, P=0.017〕and witness(OR=4.24, 95%CI -1.87-12.43,P=0.008) were independent predictors for an increased ROSC rate after multiple logistic regression analysis. Conclusion Giving hydrocortisone during resuscitation may increase ROSC rate in CA patients.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate the effects of acidosis on the current change of transient receptor potential channel M7 (TRPM7) and collagen production in mouse cardiac fibroblast (MCFs), and to explore the pathophysiological function of TRPM7 on the cardiac fibrosis. Methods (1) The model of MCFs was established and isolated. (2) MCFs was subcuhured. (3) Patch clamp technique was used to observe the current characteristics of TRPM7 in low PH solutions. (4) The influence of acidic condition on Ca2+ influx in MCFs was recorded by calcium fluorescent indicators. Results (1) There was a high level expression of TRPM7 in MCFs and the electrophysiological characteristics of TRPM7-like (TRPM7L) was similar to that of TRPM7. (2) Ca2+ influx was increased in acidic condition, and the F340/F380 ratio was increased from 1.0 to 4. 6 at pH 4.0 compared with pH 7.0 (t=2.72, P<0.01). Conclusions (1) TRPM7 is the molecular basis of the native TRPM7L in MCFs and TRPM7L plays an important role in Ca2+ influx. (2) The pathophysiological function of MCFs is influenced by regulation of Ca2+ influx mediated by TRPM7L in the condition of acidosis.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate the changes of TRPM 7-like current in mouse cardiac fibroblast(CFs) after myocardial infarction and the effect of myocardial ischemia on the TRPM 7 expression and current. Methods (1) The model of myocardial infarction was made and CFs were isolated;(2) CFs were cultured and infected by TRPM 7 siRNA;(3) The effects of myocardial ischemia on TRPM 7 current were recorded by whole cell patch clamp technique;(4) The influences of myocardial isehemia on Ca2+ influx in CFs were recorded by Ca2+ fluorescence imaging. (5) The effects of ischemia on total collagen content of CFs were studied. Results (1) Ca2+ inward current of CFs was increased after myocardial infarction [(16.2±1.7) vs. (7.4±0.7) pA/pF, P<0.053];(2) TRPM 7 current was reduced by 90% after siRNA infection;(3) The total collagen content of CFs after ischemia was approximately 2.3-fold higher than basic value. Conclusions Ca2+ influx in CFs plays an important role in the pathophysiological process of myocardial fibrosis.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE: Adopting methods of cell culture to explore the effects and mechanisms of Jianpi Bushen Huoxue Prescription (JPBSHXP), a traditional Chinese compound herbal medicine for strengthening spleen, reinforcing kidney and activating blood circulation, in inhibiting hematopoietic cells apoptosis in a mouse model of aplastic anemia (AA). METHODS: Blood serum of AA mice was made from an AA mouse model. Blood serums containing different traditional Chinese compound herbal medicine were made from rats after intragastric administration of JPBSHXP and its related decoctions, respectively. Bone marrow cells of normal mice were incubated by these blood serums for 24 hours, respectively. The apoptosis of the bone marrow cells were assayed by flow cytometry and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). RESULTS: It was indicated that the bone marrow cells of normal mice incubated with blood serum of AA mice displayed typical apoptosis. The apoptosis rates of bone marrow cells of the AA mice incubated by blood serum containing different traditional Chinese herbal medicine were decreased. The effect of Bushen (reinforcing kidey) Recipe was better than Jianpi (strengthening spleen) Recipe and Huoxue (activating blood circulation) Recipe, while the effect of JPBSHXP was the best. TEM results showed that the effect of Bushen Recipe was better than that of the Jianpi Recipe and the Huoxue Recipe, while the effect of JPBSHXP was the best. CONCLUSION: JPBSHXP and its related decoctions can significantly decrease the apoptosis rate of bone marrow mononuclear cells of the AA mice. It is inferred that JPBSHXP can promote bone marrow hematogenesis.
