Objectives To study the effect of VIM in Enterovirus 71 (EV71) infection of (human brain microvascular endothelial cells (HBMEC) and elaborating the mechanism of EV71 infection in the nervous system. Methods Knocked out the VIM by CRISPR technology , the differences in EV71 absorption , replication , release between wild VIM and VIM knocked-out (VIM-KO) HBMEC were detected by fluorescence quantitative PCR. Results 4 ℃ absorption experiment conformed that EV71 adsorption in VIM- KO is 40% less than in the normal HBMEC. After EV71 infect HBMEC for 48 h (48 h p. i.), the quantitative PCR result showed intracellular viral RNA in VIM-KO was only 1/12 of that in the normal HBMEC. Also the extracellular viral RNA was quantified, and the number of cells in VIM-KO had been reduced 1.4 times compared with the normal HBMEC. Conclusions Once VIM knocking out, EV71 attachment has been obviously reduced. Meanwhile, the level of viral RNA replication and release are decreased compared with the normal HBMEC. VIM may be an attachment receptor of EV71 in HBMEC , when the virus invades HBMEC with the binding of VIM. Moreover , VIM plays an important role in the replication and release of EV71.

Objective To study the factors influencing epidemiological characteristics and virulence of Enterovirus 71 (EV71) in Guangdong province from 2008 to 2010. Methods RNA was extracted from collected samples or cultured virus , then reversing transcription into cDNA. We amplified full-length EV71-VP1 using poly-merase chain reaction technology , then conducted sequence alignment and established phylogenetic tree with MEGA software (version 5.0) to confirm the genotype of EV71. The association between severity of clinical symp-toms and sex, age, viral genotype and VP1 variation was also analyzed using Logistic regression. Results The genotype of the predominant epidemical strain was C4a in Guangdong from 2008 to 2010. However , this subtype had already differentiated into 4 subgroups (C4a1- C4a4). There was no correlation between clinical syndrome and sex or viral genotype; the severity of symptoms was negatively correlated with age: before 4 years old, varia-tion A289T can easily lead to severe cases, increasing the risk of infection (P<0.05, OR = 2.360, 95%CI:1.163~ 4.659). Conclusion The main epidemical EV71 strain is C4a1 in Guangdong province. The emerging differen-tiation and simultaneous prevalence should merit attention to strengthen relevant surveillance; and the protection of the susceptible population should be reinforced during EV71 prevalence.

Objective:This study aims to evaluate the clinical effect and adverse reactions of oxaliplatin or irinotecan plus capecitabine treatment for colorectal liver metastases. Methods:Data from 125 cases of colorectal liver metastasis patients were continuously enrolled and randomized into two groups, i.e., 63 in group one (treatment group) and the other 62 in group two (the control group). Capecitabine was administered at 1 000 mg/m2 doses, twice a day from d1 to d14, to all patients. Irinotecan was administered at 150 mg/m2 in d1 to group one, and oxaliplatin was administered at 130 mg/m2 in d1 to group two. The drug administration cycle lasted for 21 days in both regimens, with at least 6 administration cycles. The total course was for 6 months at most. The therapeutic efficacy, median progression-free survival time, median survival time, short-term clinical effect, and adverse drug reaction were monthly determined. Results:The overall response rates and disease control rates were 33.3%and 66.7%in group one, respectively, and 35.5%and 70.9%in group two, respectively, with no significant differences between the groups (P>0.05). The median survival time and median progression-free survival time were 14 months and 5 months in group one, respectively, and 12 months and 5 months in group two, with no significant differences between the two groups (P>0.05). The level-Ⅲand-Ⅳadverse drug reactions mainly include hematological toxicity, gastrointestinal reactions, and hand-foot syndrome. The diarrhea frequency is obviously higher in group one than in group two, and the difference between the two groups is sta-tistically significant (P0.05). Conclusion:The Oxaliplatin or Irinotecan plus Capecitabine treatment is effective for colorectal liver metastases, which enhances survival rate and reduces patient suffering because of it has less side effects and good tolerance. The treatment must be further generalized and clinically applied.

ObjectiveTo observe the efficacy of maintenance hormonal treatment after response to chemotherapy in advanced breast cancer. Methods8 patients with advanced breast cancer were treated with chemotherapy,maintenance hormonal therapy were given after response to chemotherapy.The efficacy was evaluated every 2 cycles of chemotherapy and 2 months of endocrine therapy according to RECIST standard.Results8 patients received chemotherapy for 2-8 cycles (median 4 cycles). All patients got PR, the duration of chemotherapy was 1-6 months (median 2 months), the time to failure of chemotherapy was 4 months. Until the last follow-up day (31th December 2010), the time to progression was 6-86 months (median 13.5 months).Survival was 6-86 months(median 21.5 months).Seven patients quit the chemotherapy due to severe side effects of hematologic toxicity,fatigue or nausea vomiting.One patient died because of allergy to paclitaxol.Conclusion Maintenance hormonal treatment after patients with metastatic breast cancer response to chemotherapy may prolong the duration of effective therapy and improve the QOL.

In this study, we evaluated the development potential of caprine mammary gland epithelial cells (CMGECs) after transfection and nuclear transfer into enucleated, ovulated oocytes. We first isolated CMGECs from udders of lactating goats which were transfected with expression plasmid for human lacterrin and selected by G418. Then we chose sixteen neomycin resistant lines and induced them with prolactin for the expression of human lactoferrin checked by Western blotting. The donor cells, expressing human lactoferrin of 75 kD, were fused and activated with enucleated ovulated oocytes. Pronuclear-stage reconstructed embryos were transferred into the oviducts of 16 recipient goats. There were fourteen (87.5%), thirteen (81.3%), and ten (62.5%) pregnancies confirmed pregnant by ultrasound on Day 30, 60, and 90, respectively. Three recipients carried the pregnancies to term and delivered one goat each. Nested PCR-RFLP analysis confirmed that all of the kids were clones of the donor cells. These results demonstrated that CMGECs after transfection remain totipotent for nuclear transfer.

Objective To compare and evaluate the clinical efficacy and side effect of vinorelbine plus gemcitabine and vinorelbine plus cisplatin combinations in advanced non-small-cell lung cancer(NSCLC). Methods 56 cases with non-treated advanced NSCLC were unrandomly divided into two groups: the GN group (27patients) treated with vinorelbine plus gemcitabine, the NP group (29 patients) treated with vinorelbine plus cisplatin,1/3 weeks×2~6 cycles. Results For the GN group, the overall response rate was 37.7 %, MTTP was 5.1months,one year survival rate (1-ySR) was 40.7 %. There were no significant difference in the response rates and the survival rates for the GN group compared with the NP group (P >0.05); But on the side effect of toxicities, WHO grade anemia and nausea/vomiting and tiredness of the GN group was significantly milder than the NP group (P < 0.05). Conclusion Vinorelbine combined Gemcitabine regimen (GN) is active and well-tolerated. It is worth to investigate GN recommended as the first line chemotherapeutic regimen for the treatment of patients with advanced NSCLC.
