ABSTRACT

Objective@# To summarize the clinical manifestations of IgG4-related diseases in the head and neck, explore treatment methods.@*Methods @#The clinical data of 21 patients diagnosed with IgG4-related diseases were retrospectively analyzed. The clinical data and the results of glucocorticoid and immunosuppressive therapy were studied retrospectively.@* Results@#All patients had swollen sclerotic masses, and CT showed irregular high-density masses with uniform enhancement in the enlarged glands. Some patients had mucosal thickening and mass-like changes in theoral cavity, nose, sinuses, throat and other tissues, and most of the patients had cervical lymphadenopathy and elevated serum IgG4 levels (≥ 1.35 g/L). Histopathological examination of affected exosine glands and affected mucosa and lymph nodes in all patients showed infiltration of lymphocytes, plasma cells and IgG4+ plasma cells. In 21 patients, the mass in the affected glands and mucosa (including head, neck and other tissues) disappeared, and the clinical symptoms were relieved after the application of glucocorticoids. However, with a reduction in glucocorticoids, the mass recurred or even worsened.@*Conclusion @#For patients with a single mass in the submandibular gland, parotid gland and other salivary glands, as well as lymph node enlargement, CT is the first choice to identify the nature of gland neoplasms. Combined with pathological examination, related auxiliary examination and peripheral blood examination are also needed to obtain a definitive diagnosis. Glucocorticoid therapy is used to achieve a good prognosis, and long-term follow-up and timely adjustment of medication regimens are required.

ABSTRACT

Objective@#To investigate the current status of myopia in children and adolescents in Qamdo, Tibet, and analyze related influencing factors, so as to provide a basis for the prevention and control of adolescents in plateau areas.@*Methods@#A cross sectional study was conducted among 959 children and adolescents randomly selected from one district and two counties in Qamdo (from the fourth grade of elementary school to the second grade of high school) for visual acuity and refraction tests and filled out a vision related behavior questionnaire to analyze the incidence of myopia among adolescents in the region and its associated factors.@*Results@#The myopia rate of adolescents in grades 4-11 was 54.43%, the rate of undercorrection of refractive errors was 85.25%, and the percentage of students wearing eyeglasses was 34.67%,fully vision correction rate was 42.54%. The myopia rate of students in grades 4-6 was 35.14%, 64.71% in grades 7-9, and 73.48% in grades 10-11. The myopia rate increased with grades( χ 2= 101.18 , P <0.01). The myopia rate (70.40%) of urban students (grades 4-9) was higher than that of county level(41.45%), and the myopia rate of students with myopia from either parent (68.24%) was higher than that of students without myopia (51.91%) , the myopia rate of girls (59.96%) was higher than that of boys (48.36%)( χ 2=53.19,13.46,12.98, P <0.01). Use electronic products for more than 2.5 hours per day, electronic devices usage after bedtime, the light low indoor brightness when studying on a sunny day, and only use one of the table lamps or roof lights when studying at night, preference for fried food, poor sleep quality, in the morning the students who still feel tired are at higher risk of myopia( χ 2=10.35, 10.91, 6.87, 4.25, 4.97, 5.71, 12.11, P < 0.05). Multivariate regression analysis showed that the occurrence of myopia was related to region, grade, gender, parental myopia, time spent on electronic products every day in the past 5 months, and sleep quality( P <0.05).@*Conclusion@#The high rate of myopia in children and adolescents in Qamdo may be related to the quality of sleep, the length of time electronic products are used, the eye environment, and the frequency of eating fried foods. Outdoor activities do not show significant differences.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Objective: The purpose of this study was to explore the clinical effect of preoperative health education based on the WeChat platform for parents of children with simple congenital heart disease. Methods: In this study, participants were randomly divided into an intervention group (WeChat group, n=40) and a control group (leaflet group, n=40) in our center. All parents were required to complete the Family Caregiver Task Inventory (FCTI) on the first visit and the Zarit Burden Interview (ZBI) and FCTI before the operation. Clinical, family and relevant data from children and parents were collected and subsequently analyzed. Results: Before the operation, the FCTI score and the ZBI score in the WeChat group were significantly lower than those in the control group (P=0.010, P=0.027, respectively). Compared to the FCTI score on the first visit, the preoperative status score was significantly lower in the WeChat group (P=0.008). The rate of loss to follow-up and complications in the WeChat group was also significantly lower than in the control group (P=0.003). Conclusion: Preoperative health education assisted by the WeChat platform for parents of children with simple congenital heart disease can effectively improve the parents' care ability and reduce the burden of care, preoperative complications and the rate of loss to follow-up.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Objective: To investigate the effect of WeChat-based telehealth services on the postoperative follow-up of children who underwent congenital heart surgery during the COVID-19 epidemic. Methods: This study retrospectively analyzed the clinical and family data of 108 children who underwent congenital heart surgery and underwent remote follow-up via the WeChat platform from December 2019 to March 2020 in our hospital. Results: During the follow-up period, the WeChat platform was used to refer 8 children with respiratory infection symptoms to local hospitals for treatment. Two children with poor incision healing were healed after we used the WeChat platform to guide the parents in dressing the wounds on a regular basis at home. Nutritional guidance was given via the WeChat platform to 13 patients with poor growth and development. The psychological evaluation results of the parents showed that the median (range) SDS score was 43 (34-59), and 7 parents (6.5%) were classified as depressed; the median (range) SAS score was 41 (32-58), and 12 parents (11.1%) were classified as having mild anxiety. Conclusion: The use of WeChat-based telehealth services was effective for the remote postoperative follow-up of children who underwent congenital cardiac surgery during the COVID-19 epidemic. Providing WeChat-based telehealth services can reduce the amount of travel required for these children and their families, which is helpful for controlling and preventing the spread of COVID-19.

ABSTRACT

Objective@# To examine the outcome of surgical treatment in patients with stages Ⅱ-Ⅲ bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw. @*Methods@#Twenty-nine patients with bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw were examined. The patients were followed up for more than 6 months, and the treatment outcome was reviewed. @*Results@# After curettage of local lesions, 19 out of the 21 patients were cured, and 2 were relieved of symptoms. Six patients underwent subtotal resection of the maxilla, and the symptoms disappeared completely after the surgery. Two patients underwent partial resection of the mandible and recovered.@*Conclusion@#Surgical debridement is an effective measure for the treatment of patients with bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw in stages Ⅱ-Ⅲ. In most cases, curettage of local lesions via the intraoral approach can completely remove sequestrum and inflammatory granulomatous tissue. Subtotal maxillary resection or partial mandible resection is performed when the bone death reaches the level of the maxillary sinus floor or continues to the mandible. By timely surgical intervention, the bone lesion is removed to maintain the sterile, active bone microenvironment locally.

ABSTRACT

To find the predictors of High Dose Methotrexate toxicities in childhood Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Patients. This study included 198 Childhood Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia patients (303 infusions) who were treated with High Dose Methotrexate. Methotrexate levels at different time point were measured by modified enzyme multiplied immunoassay technique assay. The correlation between Methotrexate levels and toxicity was evaluated by Receiver Operating Characteristic curve. When the Methotrexate level at 42 h was lower than 0.76 µmol/L, the sensitivity for predicting thorough clearance at 66 h was 90.78%. When the Methotrexate level at 42 h was higher than1.5 µmol/L, the sensitivity for predicting delayed clearance was 82.17%. When the Methotrexate level at 66 h was higher than 0.5 µmol/L, the sensitivity for predicting Methotrexate toxicity was 89.09%. When the Methotrexate level at 66 h was lower than 0.1 µmol/L, the sensitivity for predicting Methotrexate nontoxicity was 92.73%. The Methotrexate level at 42 h could be predictor for delayed clearance. The Methotrexate level at 66 h could be predictor for toxicity.

ABSTRACT

@#[Abstract] Objective: To investigate the effect of histone demethylase JMJD3 (jumonji domain-containing protein 3) on the stemness of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) cells. Methods: The relationship between the expression of JMJD3 and the overall survival of DLBCL patients was analyzed using the clinical data of DLBCL patients in TCGA database. The control plasmid (pCMV) and JMJD3 expression plasmid(pCMV-JMJD3)weretransfectedintoDLBCLcellsofABCandGCBsubtype via lipofectamine transfection. Then, the mRNAlevels of JMJD3,ALDH1, OCT4 and SOX2 were detected by RT-PCR and qPCR; the activity ofALDH1 enzyme was detected by Flow cytometry; the protein expressions of OCT4 and SOX2 were detected by Western blotting. Gene enrichment in DLBCL patients with high JMJD3 expression was analyzed by gene set enrichment analysis (GSEA). Results: The result of prognosis analysis showed that high expression of JMJD3 was related with poor prognosis in DLBCL patients (P<0.05); however, multivariate analysis showed that the expression of JMJD3 was not the independent factor affecting the prognosis of DLBCL patients (all P>0.05). The expression of JMJD3 was remarkably increased in DLBCL cells transfected with pCMV-JMJD3, which led to significantly increased mRNA level and enzyme activity of ALDH1 as well as up-regulated mRNA and protein expressions of OCT4 and SOX2 (P<0.05 or P<0.01). GSEA analysis showed that enrichment of Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway related gene set was observed in DLBCL patients with high JMJD3 expression (P<0.05). Conclusion: JMJD3 promotes the stemness of DLBCL cells, which may be a potential therapeutic target for DLBCL patients.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND@#Glioblastoma is one of the most common malignant brain tumors. Conventional clinical treatment of glioblastoma is not sufficient, and the molecular mechanism underlying the initiation and development of this disease remains unclear. Our study aimed to explore the expression and function of miR-873a-5p in glioblastoma and related molecular mechanism.@*METHODS@#We analyzed the most dysregulated microRNAs from the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) database and examined the expression of miR-873-5p in 20 glioblastoma tissues compared with ten normal brain tissues collected in the Zhejiang Tongde Hospital. We then overexpressed or inhibited miR-873-5p expression in U87 glioblastoma cell lines and analyzed the phenotype using the cell counting kit-8 assay, wound healing assay, and apoptosis. In addition, we predicted upstream and downstream genes of miR-873-5p in glioblastoma using bioinformatics analysis and tested our hypothesis in U87 cells using the luciferase reporter gene assay and Western blotting assay. The differences between two groups were analyzed by Student's t test. The Kruskal-Wallis test was used for the comparison of multiple groups. A P < 0.05 was considered to be significant.@*RESULTS@#The miR-873-5p was downregulated in glioblastoma tissues compared with that in normal brain tissues (normal vs. tumor, 0.762 ± 0.231 vs. 0.378 ± 0.114, t = 4.540, P < 0.01). Overexpression of miR-873-5p inhibited cell growth (t = 6.095, P < 0.01) and migration (t = 3.142, P < 0.01) and promoted cell apoptosis (t = 4.861, P < 0.01), while inhibition of miR-873-5p had the opposite effect. Mechanistically, the long non-coding RNA HOTAIRM1 was found to act as a sponge of miR-873-5p to activate ZEB2 expression in U87 cells.@*CONCLUSIONS@#We uncovered a novel HOTAIRM1/miR-873-5p/ZEB2 axis in glioblastoma cells, providing new insight into glioblastoma progression and a theoretical basis for the treatment of glioblastoma.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Objective: To analyze and summarize the clinical safety and feasibility of minimally invasive video-assisted mitral valve replacement via a right thoracic minimal incision in patients aged over 65 years. Methods: The clinical data of 45 patients over 65 years old who had mitral valve disease were analyzed retrospectively from January 2014 to January 2017 at Union Hospital, Fujian Medical University. The patients were divided into two groups; 20 patients in group A, who underwent minimally invasive video-assisted mitral valve replacement via a right thoracic minimal incision, and 25 patients in group B, who underwent conventional mitral valve replacement. We collected and analyzed their relevant clinical data. Results: The operation was completed successfully in both groups. Compared with group B, group A was clearly superior for postoperative analgesia time, postoperative hospital length of stay, thoracic drainage liquid, blood transfusion, and length of incision. There were no differences between the two groups in postoperative severe complications and mortality. More patients in group B had pulmonary infections and poor incision healing, while more patients in group A had postoperative pneumothorax and subcutaneous emphysema. Conclusion: In patients aged over 65 years, minimally invasive video-assisted mitral valve replacement with a small incision in the right chest had the same clinical safety and efficacy as the conventional method.

ABSTRACT

Objective@#To understand the current situation of toilet facilities among rural primary schools and toilet-using behavior among primary students,and to provide a reference for improving school environment.@*Methods@#Totally 149 students in 2 rural non-boarding primary schools in northern China were selected. and on-site observation and questionnaire survey were used to obtain the current situation of toilet hygiene, toilet time and toilet behavior, as well as feelings towards school toilet. The results of the survey were statistically analyzed by using SAS 9.4.@*Methods@#Both two schools were deep pit latrine, the number of pit in female toilets is lower than the requirements of the “Code for design of school”, and the urinal trough and the number of pit in male toilet meet the standard requirements. The average total time of toilet-using was (28.46±11.72)s for boys and (42.48±15.52)s for girls, the difference was of significant difference (t=-7.96, P<0.01). The average actual time of toilet-using is (24.27±9.13)s for boys and (24.69±9.40)s for girls, with no statistical difference. The result showed that school 2 was better than school 1 in the behavior of urinating frequency in toilet, queuing when using toilet, and the way to express needs of toilet-using in class(χ2=11.70,27.19,17.74,P<0.05); senior students use less toilets than lower grade students. The main complains for students in school toilet hygiene is its bad smell(χ2=5.28,13.18,P<0.05).@*Conclusion@#Primary school students in northern China always take bathroom breaks in the morning, and the average time of toilet-using is different from that of adults. Senior students are more willing to express their toilet needs than lower grade students. Students are not satisfied with the hygiene of school toilets, and the toilet experience is poor.

ABSTRACT

@# Objective:To investigate the role and mechanism of chromosomal region maintenance 1 (CRM1) inhibitor sulforaphene (LFS-01) in killing triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) cells by inhibiting signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) signaling pathways. Methods: Whether LFS-01 could combine with the NES pocket of CRM1 was verified by molecular dynamics simulation techniques. The killing activity of LFS-01 on four different breast cancer cell lines was detected by CCK-8 method. TNBC MDA-MB-468 and MDA-MB-231 cells were treated with different concentrations of LFS-01, and the intracellular localization of CRM1 cargo protein STAT3 and protein with NES sequence was detected by immunofluorescence; WB was used to detect the effect of LFS-01 on the expression of STAT-3 signaling pathway and its downstream proteins; WB, cellular immunofluorescence and transmission electron microscopy were adopted to detect the occurrence of autophagy; the effect of LFS-01 on cell cycle and apoptosis was detected by flow cytometry. Results: Molecular dynamics simulations showed that LFS-01 can bind to the NES pocket of CRM1, indicating that it may structurally affect the latter's protein transport function. LFS-01 could specifically kill TNBC MDA-MB-468 and MDA-MB-231 cells. STAT3 and NES-tagged proteins were mainly blocked in the nucleus of TNBC cells after the treatment with 10 μmol/L LFS-01, while they were evenly distributed in the cytoplasm in the control group. The expressions of phosphorylated STAT3 protein, Bcl-xL and Cylin D1 were decreased in MDA-MB-468 and MDA-MB-231 cells with the increase of LFS-01 dose and the prolongation of treatment time; the expression of autophagy marker protein LC3B increased, and highdensity, multi-layered autophagosomes appeared at the same time; cell cycle arrest was observed in S phase and apoptosis rate was significantly increased (P<0.05 or P<0.01). Conclusion: LFS-01 blocks the export of CRM1 carrier protein, thereby inhibiting the activation of STAT3 signaling pathway and promoting autophagy, cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in TNBC MDA-MB-468 and MDAMB-231 cells.

ABSTRACT

@# Objective: To investigate the expression of long non-coding RNASNHG16 (lncRNASNHG16) in colorectal cancer (CRC) tissues and cells, and to explore the mechanism of its regulation on the expression of mitochondrial glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase (GPAM) via sponging miR-128-3p. Methods: Sixty pairs of colorectal cancerous tissues and para-cancerous tissues that resected from CRC patients, who underwent surgery in the Department of Anorectal Surgery, Gansu Provincial People’s Hospital during Jan. 2014 and Jan. 2017, were collected for this study; In addition, CRC cell lines (SW480, SW620, HCT116, Caco-2,DLD-1, HT29) and colonic epithelial cell line CCD841 were also collected for the study. The expression of SNHG16 in collected tissues and cell lines was determined by Real-time quantitative PCR (qPCR), and its correlation to the clinicopathological features of CRC patients was also analyzed. SW480 cells were transfected with miR-128-3p mimic, miR-128-3p inhibitor, and si-SNHG16, respectively, and then the mRNA expressions of miR-128-3p and SNHG16 were detected by qPCR, the protein expression of GPAM was determined by Western blotting, and the cell proliferation, apoptosis and invasion were detected by CCK-8 assay, colony formation assay, cell apoptosis assay and Transwell chamber assay, respectively. The binding between SNHG16 and miR-128-3p was validated with dual luciferase reporter gene assay and RNA Immunoprecipitation assay. For in vivo experiment, mouse model of SW480 cell exnograft was constructed, and the effect of SNHG16 knockdown on the growth of exnograft was observed. Results: SNHG16 was found to highly expressed in human CRC tissues and cell lines (all P<0.01), and SNHG16 expression level was associated with lymph node metastasis, Duke's stage and patients’survival (all P<0.01). Knockdown of SNHG16 significantly inhibited CRC cell proliferation and invasion, and induced apoptosis (all P<0.01); After SNHG16 knockdown, the volume of exnograft was obviously reduced (P<0.05). Dual luciferase reporter gene assay and RNA Immunoprecipitation assay validated the interaction between miR-128-3p and SNHG16, and they were negatively correlated with each other in CRC patients (P<0.01). The SNHG16 regulated the expression of its down-stream gene GPAM via endogenously sponging miR-128-3p. Conclusion: SNHG16 regulates GPAM expression in CRC cells by sponging miR-128-3p, and SNHG16 and miR-128-3p may serve as potential targets for the diagnosis and treatment of CRC.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: Deubiquitination is a posttranslational protein modification prevalent in mammalian cells. Deubiquitinases regulate the functions of the target protein by removing its ubiquitin chain. In this study, the effects of the deubiquitinase USP38's functions on the LSD1 protein and on cell physiology were investigated. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Western blotting, real-time quantitative PCR, immunoprecipitation, denaturing immunoprecipitation and luciferase reporter assays were used to analyze the protein stability, protein interactions and changes in the ubiquitin chain. Cell proliferation assays, colony formation assays, drug treatments and western blotting were used to explore the functions of USP38 in cells. RESULTS: The deubiquitinase USP38 stabilizes protein LSD1 in cells by binding LSD1 and cleaving its ubiquitin chain to prevent the degradation of LSD1 by the intracellular proteasome. USP38 enhances the ability of LSD1 to activate signaling pathways and hence promotes cellular abilities of proliferation and colony formation through interacting with LSD1. Furthermore, USP38 enhances the drug tolerance of human colon cancer cells. CONCLUSIONS: USP38 is an LSD1-specific deubiquitinase that affects cellular physiology through interacting with LSD1.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Background: Cell-derived microvesicles (MVs) are vesicles released from activated or apoptotic cells. However, the levels of MVs in myocardial infarction have been found inconsistent in researches. Objective: To assess the association between MVs and myocardial infarction by conducting a meta-analysis. Methods: A systematic literature search on PubMed, Embase, Cochran, Google Scholar electronic database was conducted. Comparison of the MVs levels between myocardial infarction patients and healthy persons were included in our study. Standard Mean Difference (SMD) and 95% confidence interval (CI) in groups were calculated and meta-analyzed. Results: 11 studies with a total of 436 participants were included. Compared with the health persons, AMVs [SMD = 3.65, 95% CI (1.03, 6.27)], PMVs [SMD = 2.88, 95% CI (1.82, 3.93),] and EMVs [SMD = 2.73, 95% CI (1.13, 4.34)], levels were higher in patients with myocardial infarction. However, LMVs levels [SMD = 0.73, 95% CI (-0.57, 2.03)] were not changed significantly in patients with myocardial infarction. Conclusions: AMVs, PMVs and EMVs might be potential biomarkers for myocardial infarction.

ABSTRACT

@#Objective    To observe the short-term efficacy and the incidence of adverse cardiovascular events in patients aged over 80 years with multivessel coronary artery disease following two-stage Hybrid surgery. Methods    We retrospectively analysed the clinical data of 67 patients aged over 80 years with multivessel coronary artery disease undergoing surgery in our hospital. The were 44 males and 23 females with an anverage age of 82.4±2.1 years. According to the operation pattern, the patients were divided into two groups: a two-stage Hybrid surgery group (n=29, 19 males, 10 females, aged 83.2±3.1 years) and a traditional thoracotomy group (n=38, 25 males, 13 females, aged 83.3±3.4 years). We compared the clinical results of perioperation between the two groups. Results    Conpared with the traditional thoracotomy group, the two-stage Hybrid surgery group had shorter postoperative duration of mechanical ventilation (6.7±2.2 h vs. 18.2±3.4 h) and hospitalization stay (15.7±3.0 d vs. 20.7±5.6 d) and had less volume of chest drainage during the first 24 h after surgery (176.5±32.3 ml vs. 443.8±51.5 ml). The incidence of adverse cardiovascular events in the two-stage Hybrid surgery group was significantly lower than that in the traditional thoracotomy group (6.9% vs. 23.1%, P<0.05). Conclusion    The two-stage Hybrid surgery in patients aged over 80 years with multivessel coronary artery disease can significantly decrease the postoperative incidence of adverse cardiovascular events, shorten the postoperative duration of mechanical ventilation and hospitalization stay, reduce the volume of chest drainage during the first 24 h after surgery and improve prognosis of surgery for the elderly patients.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: Glycoproteins play a critical role in the cellular activities of eukaryotes. Sialic acid is typically the outermost monosaccharide of glycolipids and glycoproteins, and is necessary for normal development. RESULTS: A strategy based on avidin-biotin affinity was established to enrich sialylated glycoproteins from HeLa cervical carcinoma, SW1990 pancreatic adenocarcinoma, and A549 lung adenocarcinoma cells. Using HPLC-MS/MS, western blot, real-time PCR, and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, gp96 was identified in all three cell lines. No significant difference in the protein expression of gp96 was detected at the whole cell level, but the amount of bioti-nylated gp96 in SW1990 cells was 30-40 % lower than that in A549 and HeLa cells, and the amount of sialylated gp96 in SW1990 cells was 30 % lower than that in A549 and HeLa cells. Immunoblotting results showed that the expression of sialyltransferase proteins in the total cell lysates from HeLa and A549 cells were higher than that in SW1990 cells. CONCLUSIONS: We established a new method for investigating the expression and sialylation of glycoproteins using metabolic labeling, click chemistry, and avidin-biotin affinity. We successfully used this method to purify sialylated glycoproteins from cancer cell lines. Our results showed that the levels of gp96 sialylation varied across different cancer cell lines, and this may be because of differences in sialyltransferase expression.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVES: Herniated discs and degenerative disc disease are major health problems worldwide. However, their pathogenesis remains obscure. This study aimed to explore the molecular mechanisms of these ailments and to identify underlying therapeutic targets. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Using the GSE23130 microarray datasets downloaded from the Gene Expression Omnibus database, differentially co-expressed genes and links were identified using the differentially co-expressed gene and link method with a false discovery rate ,0.25 as a significant threshold. Subsequently, the underlying molecular mechanisms of the differential co-expression of these genes were investigated using Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes pathway enrichment analysis. In addition, the transcriptional regulatory relationship was also investigated. RESULTS: Through the analysis of the gene expression profiles of different specimens from patients with these diseases, 539 differentially co-expressed genes were identified for these ailments. The ten most significant signaling pathways involving the differentially co-expressed genes were identified by enrichment analysis. Among these pathways, apoptosis and extracellular matrix-receptor interaction pathways have been reported to be related to these diseases. A total of 62 pairs of regulatory relationships between transcription factors and their target genes were identified as critical for the pathogenesis of these diseases. CONCLUSION: The results of our study will help to identify the mechanisms responsible for herniated discs and degenerative disc disease and provides a theoretical basis for further therapeutic study.
