ABSTRACT

Abstract This study aimed to establish and compare models of mammary gland hyperplasia (MGH) with hyperprolactinemia (HPRL) using two different methods. The models provide information on the relationship between mammary gland hyperplasia and associated hormones. Model A was constructed using intramuscular injections of estradiol benzoate injection (EBI), followed by progesterone (P), and then metoclopramide dihydrochloride (MDI). Model B was designed by administering MDI, follow by EBI, and then P intramuscularly. Model B showed higher MGH progression compared with model A. Notably, increase in estradiol (E2) was negatively correlated with prolactin (PRL) secretion. However, PRL levels in model B were significantly higher compared with the levels in model A. Estrogen (ER), prolactin receptor (PRLR), and progesterone receptor (PR) mRNA and protein expression levels in model B rats were positively correlated with changes in the corresponding hormone levels. However, E2, P, and PRL levels in model A showed no direct relationship with levels of the mRNAs of related hormones and protein expression levels. Our results suggest that model B is an appropriate model of MGH with HPRL that can be used to perform further studies about the interactions of the E2, P, and PRL hormones in this disorder.

ABSTRACT

O uso de próteses mal adaptadas pode ocasionar o surgimento de processos proliferativos não neoplásicos. A hiperplasia fibrosa inflamatória (HFI) é uma lesão benigna, proveniente de reação hiperplásica do tecido conjuntivo fibroso em resposta às injúrias crônicas de baixa intensidade. O objetivo do presente trabalho é relatar um caso clínico sobre remoção cirúrgica de HFI, seguida de reabilitação oral com próteses removíveis. Paciente de 75 anos do sexo masculino relatou que gostaria de fazer a troca da sua prótese, pois a mesma estava fraturada. Ao exame clínico intra-oral constatou-se que suas próteses possuíam higienização precária, e, a superior, possuía uma borda cortante que causou uma lesão hiperplásica na região de fundo de vestíbulo anterior. Quanto ao aspecto clínico, apresentava-se com consistência fibrosa e firme à palpação, de coloração semelhante a mucosa e assintomática. O plano de tratamento proposto foi reembasamento da prótese antiga com resina Soft Confort (Dencril, Brasil) eliminando as áreas que traumatizavam a mucosa, cirurgia pré-protética para a remoção da HFI, exame histopatológico e a confecção de novas próteses, sendo a superior prótese total convencional e a inferior prótese parcial removível. Observa-se a importância no cuidado do planejamento reabilitador protético dos pacientes, pois, como foi descrito neste caso, em algumas situações pode haver necessidade de lançarmos mão de diversas modalidades de tratamento prévias à reabilitação(AU)


The use of poorly adapted prostheses can lead to the emergence of non-neoplastic proliferative processes. Inflammatory fibrous hyperplasia (HFI) is a benign lesion, resulting from a hyperplastic reaction of fibrous connective tissue in response to low-intensity chronic injuries. The aim of the present study is to report a clinical case about surgical removal of HFI, followed by oral rehabilitation with removable prostheses. A 75-year-old male patient reported that he would like to change his prosthesis, because it was fractured. On intra-oral clinical examination, it was found that his prostheses had poor hygiene, and the upper one had a cutting edge that caused a hyperplastic lesion in the deep region of the anterior vestibule. As for the clinical aspect, it was fibrous and firm on palpation, mucosa-like and asymptomatic. The proposed treatment plan was to repurpose the old prosthesis with Soft Confort resin (Dencril, Brazil), eliminating the areas that traumatized the mucosa, pre-prosthetic surgery for the removal of HFI, histopathological examination and the making of new prostheses, the upper prosthesis being conventional total and the lower partial removable prosthesis. It is observed the importance in the care of the prosthetic rehabilitation planning of the patients, because, as it was described in this case, in some situations it may be necessary to resort to different treatment modalities prior to the rehabilitation(AU)

ABSTRACT

Resumen Introducción: la hiperplasia nodular linfoide del colon se define como > 10 nódulos linfoides visibles en colonoscopia. No existen estudios de su validez al compararlo con la histopatología. Objetivos: determinar la validez del hallazgo de nódulos en colonoscopia para el diagnóstico de hiperplasia nodular linfoide. Material y métodos: estudio prospectivo de prueba diagnóstica. Se incluyeron colonoscopias realizadas consecutivamente de 2014 al 2018 con equipos Olympus PCFQ150AI y GIFXP150N con obtención de biopsias. El criterio endoscópico fue la presencia de > 10 nódulos de 2 a 10 mm y el criterio histológico fue hiperplasia de folículos linfoides y mantos de linfocitos en lámina propia o submucosa. Los datos se analizaron en Epidat3.1. Se obtuvo la sensibilidad (S), especificidad (E), valor predictivo positivo (VPP) y negativo (VPN), y coeficientes de probabilidad positivo (LR+) y negativo (LR-) con sus intervalos de confianza. Resultados: se incluyeron 327 colonoscopias, la mediana de edad fue de 84 meses. La principal indicación para la colonoscopia fue sangrado digestivo bajo (38,8%). El hallazgo de nódulos se encontró en el 21% y el sitio de mayor frecuencia fue el colon total (46%), mientras que por histopatología se encontró hiperplasia nodular linfoide en el 38%. El hallazgo de nódulos obtuvo una S de 32% (intervalo de confianza [IC] del 95%: 24-140), E de 84% (IC 95%: 79-89), VPP de 56% (IC 95%: 44-68), VPN de 67% (IC 95%: 61-72), LR+ de 2,04 (IC 95%: 1,4-3) y LR- de 0,8 (IC 95%: 0,8-0,9). Conclusiones: la validez diagnóstica del hallazgo de nódulos en colonoscopia para hiperplasia nodular linfoide es pobre, por lo que la toma de biopsia debe recomendarse siempre.


Abstract Introduction: Nodular lymphoid hyperplasia of the colon is characterized by the presence of >10 lymphoid nodules visible in colonoscopy. There are no studies that confirm their validity when compared with histopathology. Objective: To determine the validity of nodules detected at colonoscopy for the diagnosis of nodular lymphoid hyperplasia in children. Materials and methods: Prospective study of diagnostic test accuracy. Colonoscopies performed consecutively from 2014 to 2018 using Olympus PCFQ150AI and GIFXP150N biopsy machines were included. The endoscopic criterion was the presence of >10 nodules from 2 to 10mm of diameter, while the histological criterion was presence of follicular lymphoid hyperplasia and lymphocyte mantles in lamina propia or submucosa. Data were analyzed in Epidat3.1. Sensitivity (SE), specificity (SP), positive predictive value (PPV), negative predictive value (NPV), positive likelihood ratio (LR+) and negative likelihood ratio (LR-) were obtained with their corresponding confidence intervals. Results: 327 colonoscopies were included; the median age was 84 months. The main indication for colonoscopy was lower gastrointestinal bleeding (38.8%). Nodules were found in 21% of the patients, predominantly throughout the whole colon (46%), whereas histopathology found nodular lymphoid hyperplasia in 38%. SE for the finding of nodules was 32% (95% confidence interval [CI]: 24-140), SP was 84% (95% CI: 79-89), PPV was 56% (95% CI: 44-68), NPV was 67% (95% CI: 61-72), LR+ was 2.04 (95% CI: 1.4-3) and LR- was 0.8 (95% CI: 0.8-0.9). Conclusions: The validity of the presence of nodules on colonoscopy for the diagnosis of nodular lymphoid hyperplasia is poor, so biopsy should always be performed.

ABSTRACT

This study aimed to explore the mechanism of Xiaoyao San(XYS) in the treatment of three diseases of liver depression and spleen deficiency, ie, depression, breast hyperplasia, and functional dyspepsia, and to provide a theoretical basis for the interpretation of the scientific connotation of "treating different diseases with the same method" of traditional Chinese medicines. Traditional Chinese medicine systems pharmacology database and analysis platform(TCMSP) was used to screen the active components of XYS which underwent principal component analysis(PCA) with the available drugs for these three diseases to determine the corresponding biological activities. The targets of XYS on depression, breast hyperplasia, and functional dyspepsia were obtained from GeneCards, TTD, CTD, and DrugBank databases. Cytoscape was used to plot the "individual herbal medicine-active components-potential targets" network. The resulting key targets were subjected to Kyoto encyclopedia of genes and genomes(KEGG) pathway analysis and gene ontology(GO) enrichment analysis. A total of 121 active components of XYS and 38 common targets in the treatment of depression, breast hyperplasia, and functional dyspepsia were collected. The key biological pathways were identified, including advanced glycation and products(AGEs)-receptor for advanced glycation and products(RAGE) signaling pathway in diabetic complications, HIF-1 signaling pathway, and cancer-related pathways. The key targets of XYS in the treatment of depression, breast hyperplasia, and functional dyspepsia included IL6, IL4, and TNF, and the key components were kaempferol, quercetin, aloe-emodin, etc. As revealed by the molecular docking, a strong affinity was observed between the key components and the key targets, which confirmed the results. The therapeutic efficacy of XYS in the treatment of diseases of liver depression and spleen deficiency was presumedly achieved by reducing the inflammatory reactions. The current findings are expected to provide novel research ideas and approaches to classify the scientific connotation of "treating different diseases with the same method" of Chinese medicines, as well as a theoretical basis for understanding the mechanism of XYS and exploring its clinical applications.

ABSTRACT

Resumo Fundamento: A taxa de falha de enxerto de veia safena um ano após a cirurgia de revascularização do miocárdio varia de 10% a 25%. O objetivo deste estudo foi de investigar se a atorvastatina pode reduzir o acúmulo de células musculares lisas vasculares para inibir a hiperplasia intimal por meio da inibição da via p38 MAPK. Métodos: Quarenta e cinco ratos Sprague-Dawley foram randomizados em três grupos. Trinta ratos foram submetidos à cirurgia de enxerto de veia e randomizados para tratamento com veículo ou atorvastatina; quinze ratos foram submetidos à cirurgia sham. Detectamos a hiperplasia intimal por meio de coloração com hematoxilina-eosina e a expressão de proteínas relacionadas por meio de análise imuno-histoquímica e Western blot. Foram realizadas as comparações por análise de variância de fator único e pelo teste da diferença mínima significativa de Fisher, com p < 0,05 considerado significativo. Resultados: A íntima analisada pela coloração com hematoxilina-eosina era dramaticamente mais espessa no grupo controle que no grupo atorvastatina e no grupo sham (p < 0,01). Os resultados da coloração imuno-histoquímica de α-SMA demonstraram que a porcentagem de células positivas para α-SMA no grupo controle era mais alta que no grupo atorvastatina (p < 0,01). Nós também avaliamos α-SMA, PCNA, p38 MAPK e fosforilação de p38 MAPK após o tratamento com estatina por meio de análise de Western blot e os resultados indicaram que a atorvastatina não levou à redução de p38 MAPK (p < 0,05); no entanto, resultou na inibição da fosforilação de p38 MAPK (p < 0,01) e reduziu significativamente os níveis de α-SMA e PCNA, em comparação com o grupo controle (p < 0,01). Conclusão: Nós demonstramos que a atorvastatina pode inibir o acúmulo de células musculares lisas vasculares por meio da inibição da via p38 MAPK e é capaz de inibir a hiperplasia intimal em modelos de enxerto de veia em ratos.


Abstract Background: The rate of saphenous vein graft failure one year after coronary artery bypass grafting ranges from 10% to 25%. The aim of this study was to explore whether atorvastatin can reduce accumulation of vascular smooth muscle cells to inhibit intimal hyperplasia via p38 MAPK pathway inhibition. Methods: Forty-five Sprague-Dawley rats were randomized to three groups. Thirty rats received a vein graft operation, and they were randomized to be treated with vehicle or atorvastatin; fifteen rats received a sham operation. We detected intimal hyperplasia by hematoxylin-eosin staining and related protein expression by immunohistochemical and Western blot analysis. Comparisons were analyzed by single-factor analysis of variance and Fisher's least significant difference test, with p < 0.05 considered significant. Results: The intima analyzed by hematoxylin-eosin staining was dramatically thicker in the control group than in the atorvastatin group and sham group (p < 0.01). The outcomes of immunohistochemical staining of α-SMA demonstrated that the percentage of α-SMA-positive cells in the control group was higher than in the atorvastatin group (p < 0.01). We also evaluated α-SMA, PCNA, p38 MAPK, and phosphorylation of p38 MAPK after statin treatment by Western blot analysis, and the results indicated that atorvastatin did not lead to p38 MAPK reduction (p < 0.05); it did, however, result in inhibition of p38 MAPK phosphorylation (p < 0.01), and it significantly reduced α-SMA and PCNA levels, in comparison with the control group (p < 0.01). Conclusion: We have demonstrated that atorvastatin can inhibit accumulation of vascular smooth muscle cells by inhibiting the p38 MAPK pathway, and it is capable of inhibiting intimal hyperplasia in a rat vein graft model.

ABSTRACT

A clinical case of Neuroendocrine Cell Hyperplasia is presented with a bibliographic review. An infant patient with respiratory distress syndrome, characterized by nasal flaring, retractions, and tachypnea with temporary resolution with the use of bronchodilators. However, the patient requires oxygen. With complementary examinations (negative viral panel twice) and epidemiology it is classified as a viral Bronchiolitis. Without improvement, extrapulmonar pathologies were suspected, discarding hearth disease, epilepsy, pathological gastroesophageal reflux. New tests were performed to rule out other pathologies, including immunological disorders. Those results were normal, so a high-resolution chest tomography was done which allowed the diagnosis of Neuroendocrine Cell Hyperplasia. During the follow up the child had improved and required oxygen until he was two years old. Neuroendocrine Cell Hyperplasia belongs to a huge group of less common interstitial disorders, which diagnosis is clinical and radiological. It can easily be confused with common respiratory disorders. For this reason, it is important to know about this disease to make an early diagnosis. Most of the cases had a gradual (months to years) improvement.


Se presenta un caso clínico de Hiperplasia de Células Neuroendocrinas y la revisión de la literatura. Paciente lactante menor con cuadro de dificultad respiratoria, caracterizado por aleteo nasal, retracciones y taquipnea persistente acompañada de desaturación. Sin adecuada respuesta al uso de broncodilatadores. Por exámenes complementarios, panel viral negativo en dos ocasiones y epidemiología, se le diagnostica una bronquiolitis viral. Por no presentar mejoría se completan estudios, descartándose neumonía atípica, cardiopatía, epilepsia, reflujo gastroesofágico patológico y compromiso inmunológico. El diagnóstico fue determinado en base a la clínica, junto con imágenes en vidrio esmerilado característicos en lóbulo medio y língula. En su seguimiento mejora paulatinamente, requiriendo soporte de oxígeno hasta los dos años. La Hiperplasia de Células Neuroendocrinas es una patología intersticial pulmonar poco frecuente, cuyo diagnóstico es clínico y radiológico. Puede ser fácilmente confundida con desórdenes respiratorios comunes, por lo que es importante sospecharla para realizar un diagnóstico precoz. La mayor parte de los casos evolucionan con declinación de los síntomas, mejorando espontáneamente en meses o en los primeros años de vida.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: Rutin is a flavonol glycoside that can be found in a wide variety of vegetables and has activity, anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetic properties. OBJECTIVE: This study investigated the effect of rutin oral administration on Wistar rats submitted to hepatic hyperplasia after partial hepatectomy (PH). METHODS: To achieve this, we considered the analysis of hepatic hyperplastic and plasma biochemical activity of Wistar rats, subjected to treatment with rutin 40 mg/kg/day for 10 days in group 1 (G1) or saline in group 2 (G2), followed by partial hepatectomy. RESULTS: The results indicated an increase in the number of mitoses after 24 hours and 48 hours (P=0.0022 and P=0.0152, respectively) of PH in the group that received rutin, as well as an increase in AST serum levels after 24 hours (P=0.0159) and 48 hours (P=0.0158) and alkaline phosphatase after 24 hours (P=0.015) in the same group, in relation to the respective controls. The group that received rutin showed a more evident variation than the control group when comparing the 24 hour and 48 hour results regarding AST, number of mitoses and number of apoptosis (P<0.005). CONCLUSION: It was concluded that rutin intervened in hepatic hyperplasia after 24 hours and 48 hours of PH, favoring hepatic hyperplasia.


RESUMO CONTEXTO: A rutina é um flavonoide que pode ser encontrado em grande variedade de vegetais e apresenta atividades anticâncer, anti-inflamatória e antidiabética. OBJETIVO: O objetivo deste estudo foi investigar o efeito da administração oral de rutina sobre a hiperplasia hepática em ratos Wistar submetidos à hepatectomia parcial. MÉTODOS: Foi realizada a análise da hiperplasia hepática e da bioquímica plasmática dos ratos Wistar tratados com rutina 40 mg/kg por 10 dias no grupo 1 (G1) ou salina no grupo 2 (G2), seguido da hepatectomia parcial. RESULTADOS: Os resultados indicaram aumento do número de mitoses após 24 e 48 horas (P=0,0022 e P=0,0152, respectivamente) da hepatectomia parcial no grupo que recebeu rutina, além de um aumento nos níveis séricos de AST após 24 horas (P=0,0159) e 48 horas (P=0,0158) e de fosfatase alcalina após 24 horas (P=0,015) no mesmo grupo, em relação aos respectivos controles. O grupo que recebeu rutina mostrou variação mais evidente do que o grupo controle quando se comparou os resultados de 24 horas e 48 horas em relação a AST, número de mitoses e número de apoptoses (P<0,005). CONCLUSÃO: Foi possível concluir que a rutina interferiu na hiperplasia hepática após 24 e 48 horas após a hepatectomia parcial, favorecendo a hiperplasia hepática.

ABSTRACT

RESUMEN La hiperplasia de células neuroendocrinas pancreáticas es una patología donde se produce un aumen to en el número de células de los islotes de Langerhans y a veces puede simular un proceso tumoral. Caso clínico: presentamos el caso de un paciente con tumor sólido de cola de páncreas, sintomático, al que se le realizó esplenopancreatectomía corporocaudal laparoscópica. El resultado anatomopatoló gico posterior informó una hiperplasia neuroendocrina. Conclusión: la hiperplasia de células neuroen docrinas debería considerarse en el diagnóstico diferencial de tumores sólidos de páncreas. La alterna tiva quirúrgica laparoscópica es factible cuando no es posible establecer el diagnóstico prequirúrgico con estudios de imágenes o biopsia.


ABSTRACT Pancreatic endocrine cell hyperplasia is defined as an increase in the number of cells of Langerhans islets and can sometimes mimic a tumoral process. Case report: a male patient with a symptomatic solid tail of pancreas tumor underwent laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy and splenectomy. The pathological examination reported neuroendocrine cell hyperplasia. Conclusion: pancreatic endocrine cell hyperplasia should be considered in the differential diagnosis of solid pancreatic tumors. Laparoscopic surgery is feasible when the preoperative diagnosis with imaging tests of biopsy is not possible.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Introduction: Facial asymmetry associated with unilateral condylar hyperplasia (UCH) is a complicated clinical condition. Objective: The objective of this study was to describe morphological characteristics of the mandible and the temporomandibular joint in patients with facial asymmetry, using computed tomography and 3D reconstruction. Methods: A retrospective observational study was performed with patients displaying facial asymmetry evaluated by single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)/CT analysis, for suspected UCH, between 2015 and 2018. The following variables were compared between the affected side (producing the asymmetry) and the contralateral side (side to where the jaw is deflected): condylar length, condylar medial and lateral pole length, mandibular ramus length, intra-articular spaces, articular eminence height and position of the posterior wall of the glenoid fossa. Results: Forty-three patients (21 women, mean age: 20.7 ± 7.25 years) with facial asymmetry were included, 19 patients presented right side deviation and 24 patients had left side deviation. Condylar length, lateral pole length, the sum of maximum values and articular eminence height were greater in the affected side (p< 0.05). A positive correlation was found between the position of the posterior wall of the glenoid fossa and the articular eminence height in the affected side (r = 0.442). Conclusions: In patients with suspected UCH, evaluated through CT, craniofacial measurements showed significantly larger condylar length and the condylar sum of maximum values in the affected side. A positive correlation was found between the increased dimensions of the articular eminence and the more posterior position of the glenoid fossa in the affected side.


RESUMO Introdução: A assimetria facial associada à hiperplasia condilar unilateral (HCU) é uma condição clínica complexa. Objetivo: O objetivo desse estudo foi descrever as características morfológicas da mandíbula e da articulação temporomandibular de pacientes com assimetria facial, usando tomografia computadorizada e reconstruções tridimensionais. Métodos: Esse estudo observacional retrospectivo foi realizado em pacientes com assimetria facial e suspeita de HCU, avaliados por meio da análise de tomografia computadorizada de emissão de fóton único (SPECT)/TC, entre os anos de 2015 e 2018. As seguintes variáveis foram comparadas entre o lado afetado (responsável pela assimetria) e o lado contralateral (lado para onde a arcada estava desviada): comprimento condilar, comprimento dos polos medial e lateral do côndilo, comprimento do ramo mandibular, espaços intra-articulares, altura da eminência articular e posição da parede posterior da fossa glenoide. Resultados: A amostra constituiu-se de 43 pacientes (21 mulheres, idade média: 20,7 ? 7,25 anos) com assimetria facial, da qual 19 pacientes apresentavam desvio do lado direito e 24, do lado esquerdo. O comprimento condilar, o comprimento do polo lateral, a soma dos valores máximos e a altura da eminência articular foram maiores no lado afetado (p< 0,05). Foi encontrada uma correlação positiva entre a posição da parede posterior da fossa glenoide e a altura da eminência articular no lado afetado (r = 0,442). Conclusão: Em pacientes com suspeita de HCU, avaliados por meio de TC, as medidas craniofaciais mostraram um comprimento condilar e a soma dos valores condilares máximos significativamente maiores no lado afetado. Foi encontrada uma correlação positiva entre as dimensões aumentadas da eminência articular e a posição mais posterior da fossa glenoide no lado afetado.

ABSTRACT

Total Panax notoginseng saponin (TPNS) is the main bioactivity compound derived from the roots and rhizomes of Panax notoginseng (Burk.) F.H. Chen. The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of TPNS in treating vascular neointimal hyperplasia in rats and its mechanisms. Male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into five groups, sham (control), injury, and low, medium, and high dose TPNS (5, 10, and 20 mg/kg). An in vivo 2F Fogarty balloon-induced carotid artery injury model was established in rats. TPNS significantly and dose-dependently reduced balloon injury-induced neointimal area (NIA) (P<0.001, for all doses) and NIA/media area (MA) (P<0.030, for all doses) in the carotid artery of rats, and PCNA expression (P<0.001, all). The mRNA expression of smooth muscle (SM) α-actin was significantly increased in all TPNS groups (P<0.005, for all doses) and the protein expression was significantly increased in the medium (P=0.006) and high dose TPNS (P=0.002) groups compared to the injury group. All the TPNS doses significantly decreased the mRNA expression of c-fos (P<0.001). The medium and high dose TPNS groups significantly suppressed the upregulation of pERK1/2 protein in the NIA (P<0.025) and MA (P<0.004). TPNS dose-dependently inhibited balloon injury-induced activation of pERK/p38MAPK signaling in the carotid artery.

ABSTRACT

Gastric polyps are common precancerous diseases. With the intensive study on the characteristics of different types of gastric polyps in recent years, only 1.7% of the gastric polyps were found to have dysplasia and cancer, and most of the dysplasia and cancer were found in polyps larger than 1 cm. Traditional idea suggests that polyps should be removed immediately, but routine removal of all polyps results in an increased financial burden on patients. At present, there are controversies about whether endoscopic treatment is necessary for different pathological types and small gastric polyps.

ABSTRACT

@#We describe three cases of primary hypothyroidism which presented initially to neurosurgery department with pituitary hyperplasia. We have found a novel pattern of ‘dome-shaped’ enlargement of pituitary in MRI of these patients. Out of these 3 patients, in two of them, the planned surgery was deferred when endocrinologists were consulted and the pituitary hyperplasia completely resolved with levothyroxine treatment. In the third case, pituitary surgery was already performed before endocrinology consultation and histopathology revealed thyrotroph hyperplasia. The hyperplastic lesions described typically have a homogenous symmetrical ‘dome’ shaped architecture unlike the non-functioning pituitary adenoma (NFPA), which usually might often be of varying shapes and homogeneity. Analysis of pituitary images from similar case reports published in literature, also showed this typical ‘dome’ shaped pituitary enlargement. This imaging characteristic can be a clue to look for underlying hormone deficiency, especially in primary hypothyroidism. Therefore, a thorough endocrine evaluation especially looking for primary hypothyroidism in such dome-shaped pituitary lesions are mandatory to prevent unwarranted neuro-surgical intervention as treatment of primary hypothyroidism may result in resolution of the abnormal enlargement.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND@#We previously demonstrated that continuous exposure to nitrous acid gas (HONO) for 4 weeks, at a concentration of 3.6 parts per million (ppm), induced pulmonary emphysema-like alterations in guinea pigs. In addition, we found that HONO affected asthma symptoms, based on the measurement of respiratory function in rats exposed to 5.8 ppm HONO. This study aimed to investigate the dose-response effects of HONO exposure on the histopathological alterations in the respiratory tract of guinea pigs to determine the lowest observed adverse effect level (LOAEL) of HONO.@*METHODS@#We continuously exposed male Hartley guinea pigs (n = 5) to four different concentrations of HONO (0.0, 0.1, 0.4, and 1.7 ppm) for 4 weeks (24 h/day). We performed histopathological analysis by observing lung tissue samples. We examined samples from three guinea pigs in each group under a light microscope and measured the alveolar mean linear intercept (Lm) and the thickness of the bronchial smooth muscle layer. We further examined samples from two guinea pigs in each group under a scanning electron microscope (SEM) and a transmission electron microscope (TEM).@*RESULTS@#We observed the following dose-dependent changes: pulmonary emphysema-like alterations in the centriacinar regions of alveolar ducts, significant increase in Lm in the 1.7 ppm HONO-exposure group, tendency for hyperplasia and pseudostratification of bronchial epithelial cells, and extension of the bronchial epithelial cells and smooth muscle cells in the alveolar duct regions.@*CONCLUSIONS@#These histopathological findings suggest that the LOAEL of HONO is < 0.1 ppm.

ABSTRACT

Resumen Las técnicas empleadas para la detección del Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) son no invasivas e invasivas. En estas últimas, la presencia del H. pylori se determina a partir de la tinción de hematoxilina-eosina (HE), prueba rutinaria, mientras que en pocas ocasiones se aplica la tinción de Warthin-Starry (WS) como coloración especial. Objetivo: identificar la presencia de H. pylori por medio de la coloración especial de la WS en biopsias de pacientes con gastritis crónica folicular, previamente negativas en la tinción HE. Materiales y métodos: se desarrolló un estudio de tipo descriptivo transversal, en un período de 12 meses. Se tomaron los bloques de parafina de las muestras de la mucosa gástrica de pacientes con diagnóstico de gastritis crónica e hiperplasia folicular. Además, se extrajo un corte histológico del mismo bloque, al cual se le aplicó HE y se determinó la presencia o ausencia de H. pylori. Así, de estar ausente, se tomó del mismo bloque un corte adicional y se aplicó WS. Esto se evaluó con el fin de identificar la existencia o no del bacilo. Resultados: se recolectaron 314 muestras; 209 fueron negativas y 105 fueron positivas para HE. El 45 % (94) de estas muestras fueron positivas respecto a la presencia del bacilo, al aplicar la segunda coloración, y el 55 % (115) de las muestras persistieron negativas. Conclusión: el hallazgo de H. pylori es significativamente alto al aplicar la coloración de WS a muestras cuyo estudio histológico evidenció la ausencia del bacilo en biopsias de la mucosa gástrica, especialmente en muestras con escasa cantidad de bacterias.


Abstract Non-invasive and invasive techniques can be used for detection of Helicobacter pylori. An invasive technique identifies the bacteria through routine hematoxylin-eosin staining. Warthin-Starry stain is rarely used. Objective: Our objective was to identify H. pylori by Warthin-Starry staining of patient's biopsies with chronic follicular gastritis who had previously tested negative in hematoxylin-eosin staining. Materials and methods: This is a descriptive, cross-sectional descriptive study that was carried out over a period of 12 months. The study examined paraffin blocks of samples taken from the gastric mucosa of patients diagnosed with chronic gastritis and follicular hyperplasia. A histological section was extracted from a block and tested with hematoxylin-eosin staining for the presence or absence of H. pylori. If absent, an additional cut was taken from the same block and Warthin-Starry staining was used to retest for the presence of the bacteria. Results: Of the 314 samples collected, 209 tested negative, and 105 tested positive for H. pylori when hematoxylin-eosin staining was used. Of the 209 negative samples, 45% (94) tested positive when Warthin Starry stain was used, and 55% (115) still tested negative. Conclusion: Findings of H. pylori are significantly higher when Warthin Starry stain was used to test samples whose previous histological study had evidenced an absence of the bacillus, especially in samples with a small amount of bacteria.
