ABSTRACT

Abstract Introduction: A comprehensive cytometry assessment in the critical ill patient shows modifications in cell lines that estimate severity and mortality in sepsis. The objective of this study is to determine the utility of different cytometric parameters and indices as predictors of mortality in septic patients. Materials and Methods: Retrospective cohort study of adults with sepsis (SEPSIS Criteria 3) hospitalized in an Intensive Unit Care (Quito, Ecuador). Patients with neoplasms or immunodeficiency states were excluded. Different cytometric parameters have been assessed and logistic regression models were used to stablish the predictive range of mortality for each parameter and areas under the curve (AUC) for sensitivity analysis. Results: Over 159 patients, the mortality was 25%. In non-survivors, the median of the APACHE II was 25.20 points, and the median of the SOFA was 11.18, 10.44, 10.15 points at the time of admission, 48, and 72 hours respectively. About the sensitivity analysis for mortality, the cut-off point of EDW was 14.5% (AUC 0.708), and it presented an adjusted OR of 5.25 (95%CI: 1.64-16.76, p: 0.005). The cut-off point of MPV was 8.45 fL (AUC 0.666), and it had an adjusted OR of 5.28 (95%CI: 1.72-16.21, p 0.004). Conclusions: EDW and MPV are independent predictors of mortality, and they must be used with scales or biomarkers to optimize the management and therapy of patients with sepsis. They would be an alternative in centers where only blood cytometry is available as an analytical test.


Resumen Introducción: Una evaluación completa de citometría en el paciente enfermo crítico muestra modificaciones en las líneas celulares que estiman la gravedad y la mortalidad en la sepsis. El objetivo de este estudio es determinar la utilidad de diferentes parámetros e índices citométricos como predictores de la mortalidad en pacientes sépticos. Materiales y métodos: Estudio retrospectivo de cohortes de adultos con sepsis (Criterio 3 de la SEPSIS) hospitalizados en una Unidad de Cuidados Intensivos (Quito,Ecuador). Se excluyeron los pacientes con neoplasias o estados de inmunodeficiencia. Se evaluaron diferentes parámetros citométricos y se utilizaron modelos de regresión logística para establecer el rango predictivo de la mortalidad para cada parámetro y las áreas bajo la curva (AUC) para el análisis de sensibilidad. Resultados: En más de 159 pacientes, la mortalidad fue del 25%. En los no supervivientes, la mediana del APACHE II fue de 25,20 puntos, y la mediana del SOFA fue de 11,18, 10,44 y 10,15 puntos en el momento del ingreso, 48 y 72 horas respectivamente. En cuanto al análisis de sensibilidad para la mortalidad, el punto de corte del EDW fue 14,5% (AUC 0,708), y presentó un OR ajustado de 5,25 (IC 95%: 1,64-16,76, p: 0,005). El punto de corte de MPV fue de 8,45 fL (AUC 0,666), y presentó un OR ajustado de 5,28 (95%CI: 1,72-16,21, p 0,004). Conclusiones. EDW y MPV son predictores independientes de mortalidad, y deben ser utilizados con escalas o biomarcadores para optimizar el manejo y la terapia de los pacientes con sepsis. Serían una alternativa en los centros donde sólo se dispone de citometría de sangre como prueba analítica.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: La enfermedad mínima residual es la permanencia de células leucémicas residuales en niveles subclínicos luego de la remisión de la enfermedad. Esta condición incrementa el riesgo de recaída y mortalidad. Objetivo: Caracterizar factores clínicos y moleculares de pacientes con leucemias agudas y enfermedad mínima residual detectada por citometría de flujo en una institución de alta complejidad de la ciudad de Medellín, Colombia durante los años 2015 - 2017. Metodología: Este es un estudio descriptivo retrospectivo, que incluyó pacientes con leucemia diagnosticada por citometría de flujo. Se realizó un muestreo no probabilístico de casos consecutivos. La información recolectada fue digitada en una base de datos en Excel, y el análisis se realizó a través del programa IBM SPSS Versión 24, empleando según la naturaleza de cada variable frecuencias absolutas y relativas, promedio y desviación estándar o mediana y rangos intercuartílicos según su distribución. Resultados: Se incluyó un total de 60 pacientes con predominio del sexo masculino 63,3 por ciento (38). El diagnóstico más frecuente fue la leucemia linfoide 78,3 por ciento (47). Del total de pacientes incluidos, 36,6 por ciento (22) fue positivo para enfermedad mínima residual; 28,3 por ciento recibió trasplante de médula ósea y el 10 por ciento (6) presentó compromiso de líquido cefalorraquídeo. En la segunda citometría en pacientes con enfermedad mínima residual, 90,9 por ciento (20) expresaba CD45+. El 31,8 por ciento (7) de los pacientes con enfermedad mínima residual presentó recaída. Conclusión: La enfermedad mínima residual es una condición frecuente en pacientes con leucemias agudas que requiere seguimiento y constituye un factor pronóstico relevante(AU)


Introduction: The minimal residual disease is the permanence of residual leukemic cells at subclinical levels after remission of the disease. This condition increases the risk of relapse and mortality. Objective: To characterize the clinical and molecular factors of patients with acute leukemias and minimal residual disease detected by flow cytometry in a highly complex institution in the city of Medellín, Colombia during the years 2015 - 2017. Methodology: This is a retrospective descriptive observational study, which included patients with leukemia diagnosed by flow cytometry. A non-probabilistic sampling of consecutive cases was carried out. The information collected was entered into a database in Excel, and the analysis was carried out through the IBM SPSS Version 24 program, using absolute and relative frequencies, average and standard deviation or median and interquartile ranges, according to the nature of each variable and its distribution. Results: 60 patients were included in which male sex predominated with 63.3 percent (38). The most frequent diagnosis was lymphoid leukemia with 78.3 percent (47). Of the total patients included, 36.6 percent (22) were positive for minimal residual disease; 28.3 percent received a bone marrow transplant and 10 percent (6) had a cerebrospinal fluid compromise. In the second cytometry of the patients with minimal residual disease, 90.9 percent (20) expressed CD45 +. 31.8 percent (7) of the patients with minimal residual disease relapsed. Conclusion: Minimal residual disease is a frequent pathology in patients with acute leukemias that requires follow-up and constitutes a relevant prognostic factor(AU)

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: Super-paramagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPION) contain a chemotherapeutic drug and are regarded as a promising technique for improving targeted delivery into cancer cells. RESULTS: In this study, the fabrication of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) was investigated with loaded Dextran (DEXSPION) using the co-precipitation technique and conjugated by folate (FA). These nanoparticles (NPs) were employed as carriers and anticancer compounds against liver cancer cells in vitro. Structural, magnetic, morphological characterization, size, and drug loading activities of the obtained FA-DEX-5-FUSPION NPs were checked using FTIR, VSM, FESEM, TEM, DLS, and zeta potential techniques. The cellular toxicity effect of FA-DEX-5-FU-SPION NPs was evaluated using the MTT test on liver cancer (SNU-423) and healthy cells (LO2). Furthermore, the apoptosis measurement and the expression levels of NF-1, Her-2/neu, c-Raf-1, and Wnt-1 genes were evaluated post-treatment using flow cytometry and RT-PCR, respectively. The obtained NPs were spherical with a suitable dispersity without noticeable aggregation. The size of the NPs, polydispersity, and zeta were 74 ± 13 nm, 0.080 and 45 mV, respectively. The results of the encapsulation efficiency of the nano-compound showed highly colloidal stability and proper drug maintenance. The results indicated that FA-DEX-5-FU-SPION demonstrated a sustained release profile of 5-FU in both phosphate and citrate buffer solutions separately, with higher cytotoxicity against SNU-423 cells than against other cells types. These findings suggest that FA-DEX-SPION NPs exert synergistic effects for targeting intracellular delivery of 5-FU, apoptosis induction, and gene expression stimulation. CONCLUSIONS: The findings proved that FA-DEX-5-FU-SPION presented remarkable antitumor properties; no adverse subsequences were revealed against normal cells.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: La enfermedad granulomatosa crónica es una inmunodeficiencia primaria congénita del sistema inmune innato, originada por defectos en el complejo enzimático nicotinamida adenina dinucleótido fosfato oxidasa presente en células fagocíticas. Estos defectos funcionales causan incapacidad para producir especies reactivas del oxígeno en los fagocitos, que afectan la eliminación de algunos microorganismos patógenos dentro del fagolisosoma. El diagnóstico de esta enfermedad se realiza actualmente mediante la prueba de 1,2,3-dihidrorodamina asistida por citometría de flujo multiparamétrica, o la tinción de fagocitos con nitroazul de tetrazolio asistida por microscopio óptico. Objetivos: Describir los aspectos fisiopatológicos y moleculares de la enfermedad granulomatosa crónica; y discutir aspectos relacionados con las pruebas de diagnóstico antes mencionadas. Métodos: Se realizó una investigación bibliográfica-documental a partir de artículos científicos publicados desde 1933 hasta 2018, para ello fueron consultadas las bases de datos SciELO, PubMed y Springer. Desarrollo: Se exponen las características fisiopatológicas de la enfermedad granulomatosa crónica, así como la relación entre las mutaciones genéticas más abundantes en la población afectada y la gravedad de las manifestaciones clínicas que presentan los pacientes. Además, se analizan críticamente los beneficios y las deficiencias de dos técnicas que se utilizan actualmente para diagnosticar la enfermedad. Conclusiones: La enfermedad granulomatosa crónica puede generar consecuencias inmunológicas e inflamatorias graves, que se hallan en consonancia con las características genéticas expresadas en el complejo enzimático dañado. El diagnóstico de la enfermedad resulta más confiable, exhaustivo y específico, mediante la citometría de flujo y su prueba de 1,2,3-dihidrorodamina(AU)


Introduction: Chronic granulomatous disease is a congenital primary immunodeficiency of the innate immune system, caused by defects in the nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate oxidase enzyme complex present in phagocytic cells. These functional defects cause inability to produce reactive oxygen species in phagocytes, affecting the elimination of some pathogenic microorganisms within the phagolysosome. The diagnosis of this disease is currently made by means of the 1,2,3-dihydrorodamine test assisted by multiparametric flow cytometry, or the staining of phagocytes with nitro-blue tetrazolium assisted by light microscopy. Objectives: To characterize molecular and pathophysiologically the chronic granulomatous disease; and to discuss aspects related to the aforementioned diagnostic tests. Methods: In this work, a bibliographic-documentary research was carried out from scientific articles published from 1933 to 2018, for which the SciELO, PubMed and Springer databases were consulted. Development: The pathophysiological characteristics of chronic granulomatous disease are exposed, as well as the relationship between the most abundant genetic mutations in the affected population, and the severity of the clinical manifestations presented by the patients. In addition, the benefits and deficiencies of two techniques currently used to diagnose the disease are critically analyzed. Conclusions: Chronic granulomatous disease can generate severe immunological and inflammatory consequences, which are in line with the genetic characteristics expressed in the damaged enzyme complex. The diagnosis of the disease is more reliable, exhaustive and specific, using flow cytometry and its 1,2,3-dihydrorodamine test(AU)

ABSTRACT

Introdução: O potencial de transformação maligna de células-tronco hematopoiéticas portadoras de mutações no gene glicosilfostatidilinositolclasse A (PIG-A) para leucemias agudas, embora raro, já é bem descrito na literatura. Objetivo: Neste estudo, porém, buscou-se evidenciar pela primeira vez na literatura o surgimento ou a manutenção de clones de hemoglobinúria paroxística noturna (HPN) em pacientes diagnosticados com leucemia aguda ou ainda após o início do tratamento quimioterápico. Método: A pesquisa de clones de HPN foi realizada por citometria de fluxo em blastos, hemácias, granulócitos ou monócitos de 47 amostras de sangue periférico e medula óssea de pacientes submetidos à investigação diagnóstica ou acompanhamento terapêutico, provenientes de dois hospitais oncológicos e públicos de Belém, no período de dezembro de 2017 a dezembro de 2018. Resultados: A presença de clones de HPN foi observada em 19/47 (40,4%) amostras de pacientes, em investigação diagnóstica ou acompanhamento terapêutico, que realizaram pelo menos um estudo de acompanhamento terapêutico e ainda tiveram o surgimento ou a manutenção do clone de HPN mesmo após iniciado o tratamento quimioterápico. Conclusão: Foi possível evidenciar, de forma primária, a presença de clones de HPN em pacientes diagnosticados com leucemia aguda tanto no período de investigação diagnóstica como durante o acompanhamento terapêutico, independentemente da ontogenia celular. Sem, porém, que se possa ainda avaliar a importância da presença desses clones de HPN para a evolução da doença primária, prognóstico ou necessidade de tratamento específico.


Introduction: The potential for malignant transformation of hematopoietic stem cells carrying mutations in theglycosylphosphatidylinositol class A (PIG-A) gene for acute leukemias, although rare, is already well described in the literature. Objective: In this study, however, it was attempted to show for the first time in the literature the emergence or maintenance of paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) clones in patients diagnosed with acute leukemia or even after the beginning of the chemotherapy treatment. Method: The search of PNH clones was performed by flow cytometry in blasts, erythrocytes, granulocytes or monocytes of 47 samples of peripheral blood and bone marrow from patients undergoing diagnostic investigation or therapeutic follow-up in two oncological and public hospitals in Belém, from December 2017 to December 2018. Results: The presence of PNH clones was observed in 19/47 (40.4%) patient samples, in diagnostic investigation or therapeutic follow-up, who participated of at least one therapeutic follow-up study and still experience the appearance or maintenance of the PNH clone even after the beginning of the chemotherapy treatment. Conclusion: Primarily, it was possible to demonstrate the presence of PNH clones in patients diagnosed with acute leukemia both during the diagnostic investigation period and therapeutic follow-up, regardless of cell ontogeny. However, the importance of the presence of these PNH clones for the evolution of the primary disease, prognosis or need for specific treatment was not evaluated yet.

ABSTRACT

This study aimed at performing cytometric phenotyping of the blood samples from free-living, young white-eyed parakeets (Psittacara leucophthalmus), stained with 3,3-dihexyloxacarbocyanine [DiOC6(3)]. DiOC6(3)-stained whole blood samples from 19 free-living, young white-eyed parakeets were analyzed by flow cytometry and cell types were distinguished by their typical fluorescence in blue laser channel (FL-1) and SSC (side scatter). It was possible to differentiate erythrocytes (58.3±13.6) from leukocytes (32.4±13.1) and some of the leucocyte subpopulations: lymphocytes/thrombocytes (29.7±7.7), monocytes (30.6±8.5), and granulocytes (5.9-26). However, lymphocytes and thrombocytes could not be sorted in the plots. Our study determined that the predominant population in white-eyed parakeet (P. leucophthalmus) was lymphocytes, thrombocytes, and monocytes in the leucocytes gates in comparison to the granulocyte population. The cytometry method and use of DiOC6(3) stain was available for parakeets blood samples and can be studied and applied to other species of parrots.(AU)


Este estudo teve como objetivo realizar a fenotipagem citométrica com 3,3-di-hexiloxacarbocianina [DiOC6 (3)] de amostras de sangue de maritacas jovens de vida-livre (Psittacara leucophthalmus). As amostras de sangue total, coradas com DiOC6(3) de 19 maritacas de vida livre, foram analisadas por citometria de fluxo e os tipos de células foram distinguidos por sua fluorescência típica no canal laser azul (FL-1) e SSC (dispersão lateral). Foi possível diferenciar eritrócitos (58,3±13,6) de leucócitos (32,4±13,1) e algumas subpopulações de leucócitos: linfócitos/trombócitos (29,7±7,7), monócitos (30,6±8,5) e granulócitos (5,9-26), entretanto, linfócitos e trombócitos não puderam ser diferenciados em duas populações distintas. Nosso estudo determinou que a população predominante P. leucophthalmus foi mononuclear agranulocítica em comparação com a taxa de aquisição da população granulocítica. A metodologia de citometria de fluxo com uso da coloração de DiOC6(3) foi aplicável a amostras sanguíneas das maritacas e pode ser estudado e aplicado para outras espécies de psitacídeos.(AU)

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To investigate the effect of expression level changes of monocytic myeloid-derived suppressor cells (M-MDSC) to related immune function in the patients with primary immune thrombocytopenia (ITP).@*METHODS@#Peripheral blood samples were collected from 53 newly diagnosed ITP patients and 30 healthy volunteers. The quantity of M-MDSC, mRNA levels of Arg-1 and iNOS were detected. CD4@*RESULTS@#The count of M-MDSC in peripheral blood of newly diagnosed ITP patients was significantly higher than that in the control group (P < 0.01). However, the expression level of Arg-1 in peripheral blood was not significantly different between the newly diagnosed ITP group and the control group. But the expression level of iNOS in the newly diagnosed ITP patients was significantly higher than that in the control group (P < 0.01). After treatment, the count of M-MDSC in the patients with ITP was significantly lower than before treatment (P < 0.01), which showed that M-MDSC could significantly inhibit the proliferation and secretion of IFN-γ in CD4@*CONCLUSION@#M-MDSC may be related to the disorder of immune tolerance in the patients with ITP, and may become a new index to monitor the curative efficacy of ITP patients.

ABSTRACT

Although most acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients can achieve complete remission (CR) induced by standardized chemotherapy, but the relapse rate after remission remains high. The key reason is its high heterogeneity in cytogenetics and molecular biology. There are evidences show that minimal residual disease (MRD) is closely associated with disease recurrence, so that, finding specific genetic and molecular biological changes as new targets for MRD detection has become a research hotspot in recent years. In this review the intrinsic relationship between relapse of AML and MRD detection of specific molecular events, the application of these new targets in MRD detection and their targeted therapies according to the latest guidelines, so as to achieve the optimal treatment in CR phase.

ABSTRACT

Assays based on the flow cytometry technique allow a convenient analysis of multiple cellular parameters; however, their results should be interpreted cautiously due to a strong impact of confounding factors. Different techniques in cell culturing such as either enzymatic or mechanic detachment of adherent cells can heavily influence the structure of the cell membrane or presence of the surface antigens leading to strong false positive signals, and finally, substantial experimental bias. The aim of our study was to assess and compare the impact of cell harvesting methods (both enzymatic and non-enzymatic) on the apoptosis process and on the surface antigen cytometric analyses. We found significant differences in the quality of analysis in terms of the amount of detected surface markers determined by the detachment method. Our results demonstrated clearly how important it is to carefully choose the appropriate detachment method and may help to avoid mistakes in experiment planning. In conclusion, we recommend to adjust the detachment method to the type of analyzed markers (surface antigens or translocated phosphatidylserine).

ABSTRACT

Abstract Objective Neutrophils are key effector cells of the innate immune system. They recognize antigens through membrane receptors, which are expressed during their maturation and activation. Neutrophils express FcγRII (CD32), FcγRIII (CD16), and FcγRI (CD64) after being activated by different factors such as cytokines and bacterial products. These receptors are involved with phagocytosis of IgG-opsonized microbes and enhance defense mechanisms. Based on that, our study seeks to compare the expression of FcγRII, FcγRIII, FcγRI, and CD11b on neutrophils from elderly and young subjects and their expression after in vitro activation with cytokines and LPS. Methodology Neutrophils were isolated from human peripheral blood and from mice bone marrow by density gradient. After isolation, FCγRs expression was immediately analyzed by flow cytometry or after in vitro stimulation. Results In freshly isolated cells, the percentage of FcγRIIIb+ and CD11b+ neutrophils were higher in samples from young individuals; FcγRIIIa expression was more prominent on aged neutrophils; FcγRIA expression was similar in all samples analyzed. Exposure to CXCL8 and LPS resulted in a higher percentage of FcγRIa+ neutrophils on elderly individuals' samples but lower when compared with neutrophils from young donors. We observed that LPS caused an increase in FcγRIIa expression on aging human neutrophils. In contrast, FcγRIIIb expression in response to CXCL8 and LPS stimulation was not altered in the four groups. CD11b expression was lower in neutrophils from elderly individuals even in response to LPS and CXCL8. In mice, we observed differences only regarding CD11b expression, which was increased on aged neutrophils. LPS exposure caused an increase in all FcγRs. Conclusions Our results suggest that, in humans, the overall pattern of FcγR expression and integrin CD11b are altered during aging and immunosenescence might contribute to age-related infection.

ABSTRACT

SUMMARY: The use of hematological counts for the prevention, diagnosis and follow-up of hematological diseases has increased. Indeed, the correct operation of a clinical laboratory is essential to producing comparable results. However, there is a paucity of validation and reproducibility studies among the different existing methods for clinical analysis. Therefore, our aim was to assess the commutability of the results provided by analyzers with different measuring systems. Sixty venous blood samples were obtained from patients, without discriminating for age or sex. Then, an automated hematological analysis was performed using the Cell-Dyn Ruby and HumaCount 5L instruments. The variables measured were: RBC, Hb, HCT, MCV, MCH and MCHC. The data were compared by a one-way ANOVA and Pearson's correlation coefficient. Statistical significance was fixed at p < 0.05. There were no statistically significant differences for RBC, HCT, MCH or MCHC. In addition, with the exception of MCHC, all the analytes showed a good correlation coefficient between the two instruments. There is a variety of automated systems for the clinical laboratory and it is essential for the clinician to know the different methodologies used in hematological analyzers as well as their sensitivity and specificity. Therefore, our results are useful for demonstrating the importance of practical knowledge of the analyzers mentioned.


RESUMEN: El uso de recuentos de células sanguíneas para la prevención, diagnóstico y monitoreo de enfermedades hematológicas ha ido en aumento. Por ello, el funcionamiento correcto de un laboratorio clínico es indispensable para producir resultados comparables. Sin embargo, existen pocos estudios de validación y reproducibilidad de los diferentes métodos de análisis clínico existentes. Por lo tanto, nuestro objetivo fue evaluar la intercambiabilidad de los resultados entregados por los analizadores que utilizan diferentes sistemas de medición. Se obtuvieron sesenta muestras de sangre venosa de pacientes, sin discriminar por edad o sexo. Los eritrogramas fueron obtenidos utilizando los analizadores automatizados Cell-Dyn Ruby y HumaCount 5L. Las variables medidas fueron: RBC, Hb, HCT, MCV, MCH y MCHC. Los datos fueron comparados por ANOVA a una vía y la correlación de Pearson. La significación estadística se estableció en el nivel estándar p<0,05. No hubo diferencias estadísticamente sig- nificativas para RBC, HCT, MCH y MCHC. Con la excepción de la MCHC, todos los analitos presentaron un buen coeficiente de correlación entre los dos analizadores comparados. Existen varios sistemas de automatización para su uso en laboratorios clínicos. Por lo tanto, es primordial para el clínico estar familiarizado con las diferentes metodologías utilizadas en los analizadores de sangre, así como su sensibilidad y especificidad. Nuestros resultados son útiles para mostrar la importancia del conocimiento práctico de los diferentes sistemas de medidas comparados.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: La citometría de flujo es una técnica de avanzada, objetiva y altamente sensible que permite el análisis y la cuantificación simultánea de múltiples parámetros celulares, muy utilizada en el estudio de la leucemia linfoide crónica, entidad caracterizada como un trastorno proliferativo maligno de linfocitos de aspecto maduro e incompetentes. Objetivo: Describir la estrategia de diagnóstico del inmunofenotipaje por citometría de flujo de la leucemia linfoide crónica. Métodos: Se analizó una muestra de médula ósea para la citometría de flujo de un paciente con sospecha clínica y morfológica de la leucemia linfoide crónica. El inmunofenotipaje celular se realizó con el empleo de anticuerpos monoclonales dirigidos contra los antígenos de diferenciación linfoides B y T. Se procedió a la lectura de la muestra en un citómetro GALLIOS, Beckman Coulter y los datos obtenidos se analizaron con el empleo del programa informático Kaluza. Resultados: Los antígenos con expresión positiva fueron el CD19 (99,94 por ciento), CD20 (81,56 por ciento), CD5 (80,25 por ciento), así como la coexpresión de CD5+/CD19+ (96,56 por ciento), CD5+/CD20+ (80,56 por ciento), CD19+/CD20+ (84,86 por ciento), CD23 (62,65 por ciento), CD49d (65,18 por ciento), CD38 (52,17 por ciento). Se encontró monoclonalidad de la cadena ligera k en un 44,27 por ciento. La expresión de los antígenos CD3, CD4, CD8y CD25 resultó negativa. Conclusiones: La estrategia diagnóstica propuesta permitió identificar los antígenos más frecuentemente expresados en pacientes con leucemia linfoide crónica, así como la coexpresión de los mismos y la monoclonalidad de la cadena k, los cuales son marcadores celulares que permiten realizar el diagnóstico inmunofenotípico de la leucemia linfoide crónica, por citometría de flujo(AU)


Introduction: Flow cytometry is an advanced, objective, highly sensitive technique for the simultaneous analysis and quantification of multiple cellular parameters. This technique is very common in the study of chronic lymphocytic leukemia, a condition defined as a malignant proliferative disorder of mature, incompetent lymphocytes. Objective: Describe the diagnostic strategy for flow cytometry immunophenotyping of chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Methods: Flow cytometry testing was performed of a bone marrow sample taken from a patient with clinical and morphological suspicion of chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Cell immunophenotyping was based on monoclonal antibodies targeted against lymphoid differentiation antigens B and T. The sample was read in a GALLIOS Beckman Coulter cytometer, and the data obtained were analyzed with the software Kaluza. Results: Antigens with a positive expression were CD19 (99.94 percent), CD20 (81.56 percent), CD5 (80.25 percent), as well as the co-expression of CD5+/CD19+ (96.56 percent), CD5+/CD20+ (80.56 percent), CD19+/CD20+ (84.86 percent), CD23 (62.65 percent), CD49d (65.18 percent), CD38 (52.17 percent). Monoclonality of the k light chain was present in 44.27 percent. Expression of antigens CD3, CD4, CD8 and CD25 was found to be negative. Conclusions: The diagnostic strategy proposed made it possible to identify the antigens most frequently expressed in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia, as well as their co-expression and the monoclonality of the k chain, all of which are cell markers allowing flow cytometry-based immunophenotypical diagnosis of chronic lymphocytic leukemia(AU)

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: There is a large amount of industrial wastewater produced by the mushroom industry during the canning processing each year, which could provide abundant carbon, nitrogen and inorganic salts for microbial growth. The aim of this study was to optimize the culture conditions for Bacillus licheniformis cultured in the Agaricus bisporus industrial wastewater to produce the agricultural microbial fertilizer. RESULTS: In this work, the maximal biomass of B. licheniformis could be obtained under the following culture conditions: 33.7°C, pH 7.0, 221 rpm shaking speed, 0.5% wastewater, 2 (v:v, %) inoculum dose, loading liquid of 60 mL/250 mL and a culture time of 24 h, and the average experimental value obtained was 1.35 ± 0.04 × 109 Obj/mL, which was within the 95% confidence interval of the predicted model (1.29­1.38 × 109 Obj/mL), and met the national microbial fertilizers' standard in China. Furthermore, the field experiment results showed that the fermentation broth of B. licheniformis could significantly improve the yield of Anoectochilus roxburghii. CONCLUSIONS: Agaricus bisporus industrial wastewater can be used to produce agricultural microbial fertilizer.

ABSTRACT

Introdução: Moçambique é um dos países endémicos à malária. Em 2011, a estimativa de prevalência desta doença era de 40­80% em crianças dos 2­9 anos e 90% em crianças menores de 5 anos. Estas altas prevalências podem ser devido à dificuldade das crianças em desenvolverem uma resposta imune eficaz. São necessários mais estudos para entender a resposta imune nestas crianças. Este estudo teve como objectivo descrever as características imuno-hematológicas em crianças menores de 15 anos infectadas por Plasmodium falciparum. Metodologia: Foram recrutadas crianças de 2-15 anos, infectadas por P. falciparum. Em cada criança, cujo tutor legal consentiu que participasse no estudo, colheu-se 5 ml de sangue venoso para um tubo com anticoagulante K3EDTA. O sangue foi usado para a contagem automática de células por citometria de fluxo. Os resultados foram agrupados por idade, dos 2-8 anos e 9-15 anos. Resultados: Das 50 crianças incluídas no estudo, 84% tinham idades entre os 2-8 anos, 70% do sexo masculino e 4% com serologia positiva para HIV. O nível de hemoglobina foi mais elevado no grupo de 9-15 anos (10,3g/dL) em relação ao grupo de 2-8 anos (8,7g/dL). A contagem absoluta de linfócitos T-CD4 foi maior no grupo de 2-8 anos (819 cél./µl). A activação celular não apresentou diferenças entre os grupos. Conclusão: A maioria dos casos de malária e anemia aguda foi observada em crianças dos 2 aos 8 anos, predominantemente do sexo masculino. Os valores absolutos de linfócitos foram mais elevados nas crianças dos 2-8 anos, mas os valores percentuais linfocitários não diferiram entre os grupos.


Introduction: Mozambique is one of the endemic countries to malaria. In 2011, the estimated prevalence of this disease was 40­80% in children aged from 2­9 years and 90% in children under 5 years. These high rates may be due to the difficulty of children in building an effective immune response. Further studies are needed to understand the immune response mounted by children in the presence of Plasmodium. This study aimed to describe the immuno-haematological characteristics of children under 15 years infected with Plasmodium falciparum. Methodology: Children aged from 2-15 years, infected with P. falciparum, were recruited for the study. In each child, whose legal guardian consented to take part of the study, was collected 5 ml of venous blood to a K3EDTA anticoagulant tube. The samples were tested using automatic full blood cell counting and flow cytometry. The results were grouped by age, 2-8 years and 9-15 years. Results: From the 50 children included in the study, 84% were aged 2-8 years, 70% were male and 4% were HIV positive. The haemoglobin level was higher in the 9-15 year old group (10.3g/dL) compared to the 2-8 year old group (8.7g/dL). The absolute T-CD4 lymphocytes levels were higher in the 2-8 year old group (819 cells/µl). The T-CD8 lymphocytes activations levels were similar in both groups. Conclusion: The majority of the children attended in the Paediatric Emergency who diagnosed malaria were 2 to 8 years old. These children were predominantly male and presented acute anaemia. The absolute T-CD4 and T-CD8 lymphocytes levels were higher in children aged 2-8 years, but the percentage levels of lymphocytes did not differ between groups.

ABSTRACT

SUMMARY: Mesenchymal stem cells are characterized by in vitro high proliferation and multilineage potential maintenance. This study aimed to isolate and characterize equine YS mesenchymal stem cells and compare these with amniotic membranes. The yolk sac (YS) and amniotic membranes (AM) were obtained from 20 pregnant mares with gestational age around 30 days. Cells were cultured in α-MEM supplemented with 15 % FBS, 1 % antibiotic solution, 1 % L-glutamine and 1 % nonessential amino acids. To cell characterization we used cytogenetic analysis, fibroblast colony-forming unit assays, cell growth curves, immunophenotyping, flow cytometry, differentiation assays and teratoma formation. Results: Both cell sources presented fibroblastoid and epithelioid-like format. The YS cells have lower colony formation potential then AM ones, 3 versus 8 colonies per 103 plated cells. However, YS cells grew progressively while AM cells showed steady. Both, the YS and amnion cells immunolabeled for Oct-4, Nanog, SSEA-3, cytokeratin 18, PCNA, and vimentin. In addition, presented mesenchymal, hematopoietic, endothelial and pluripotency markers in flow cytometry. Discussion: Both cell sources presented high plasticity and differed into osteogenic, adipogenic, and chondrogenic lineages, and no tumor formation in nude mice was observed. The results suggest that horse YS may be useful for cell therapy such as amnion-derived cells.


RESUMEN: Las células madre mesenquimales se caracterizan por una alta proliferación in vitro y un mantenimiento potencial de múltiples líneas. Este estudio tuvo como objetivo aislar y caracterizar las células madre mesenquimales del saco vitelino equinas y compararlas con las membranas amnióticas. Se obtuvo el saco vitelino (SV) y las membranas amnióticas (MA) de 20 yeguas preñadas con edad gestacional de aproximadamente 30 días. Las células se cultivaron en α -MEM suplementado con 15 % de FBS, 1 % de solución antibiótica, 1 % de L-glutamina y 1 % de aminoácidos no esenciales. Para la caracterización celular utilizamos análisis citogenéticos, ensayos de unidades de colonias de fibroblastos, curvas de crecimiento celular, inmunofenotipaje, citometría de flujo, ensayos de diferenciación y formación de teratomas. Ambas fuentes celulares presentaron formato fibroblastoideo y epitelioide. Las células SV tienen un potencial de formación de colonias más bajo que las de MA, 3 versus 8 colonias por 103 células en placa. Sin embargo, las células SV crecieron progresivamente mientras que las células MA se mostraron estables. Tanto las células YS como las células amnios están inmunomarcadas para Oct-4, Nanog, SSEA-3, citoqueratina 18, PCNA y vimentina. Además, presentó marcadores mesenquimales, hematopoyéticos, endoteliales y pluripotenciales en citometría de flujo. Ambas fuentes celulares presentaron alta plasticidad y diferían en linajes osteogénicos, adipogénicos y condrogénicos, y no se observó formación de tumores en ratones. Los resultados sugieren que el SV de caballo puede ser útil para la terapia celular, como las células derivadas de amnios.
