ABSTRACT

Objective:To investigate the expression of mBmi-1 in papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) and to analyze its relationship with clinical features of PTC and its mechanism.Methons:A total of 60 tissue samples were collected from Jun. 2018 to Dec. 2018 in Department of Oncology Surgery of Affiliated Hangzhou First People’s Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine. Real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) was used to detect the expression level of B cell-specific MLV integration site-1 (mBmi-1) in PTC tissues and its relationship with pathological features was analyzed. Bmi-l microRNAs (miRNAs) were predicted by bioinformatics sites targetscan and microRNA.org and confirmed by luciferase reporter gene experiments. CCK-8 (Cell Counting Kit-8) kit and Transwell chamber were used to measure changes in PTC proliferative capacity and invasive ability.Results:In this study, we found that mBmi-1 expression was positively correlated with PTC lesion size and invasion ability. Bioinformatics prediction results suggested that Bmi-1 was a target gene of microRNA-203 (MicroRNA-203, miR-203) , and the 3’-UTR target sequence of miR-203 against Bmi-1 was GUAAAGU. After transfection of the miR-203 mimetic, the expression of Bmi-1 mRNA in the PTC cell line TPC-1 was significantly down-regulated. The dual luciferase reporter gene assay demonstrated that miR-203 can act on the 3’UTR region of the Bmi-1 gene to predict the target. In addition, the transfection of miR-203 mimetic effectively inhibited the proliferation and invasion of PTC cells, and the ability of proliferation and invasion of PTC cell TPC-1 was restored after overexpression of Bmi-1 in PTC cell TPC-1 transfected with miR-203 mimic.Conclusions:Bmi-1 is positively correlated with the proliferation and invasion ability of PTC. miR-203 can inhibit the proliferation and invasion of PTC cells by directly targeting Bmi-1 gene.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To investigate the clinical significance of Delphian lymph node (DLN) dissection in papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) .Methods:The correlation of DLN detection and metastasis in 208 PTC patients with various clinical and pathological features was analyzed retrospectively. The value of DLN metastasis in predicting PTC high-risk features was evaluated, and the tendency of surgical selection for PTC with DLN metastasis was also discussed.Results:① Of 208 PTC patients, DLN was detected in 144 patients (69.23%) . The detection rate of DLN was related to gender, number of central lymph nodes (excluding DLN) removed and metastasis (all P<0.05) . Male, greater number of nodes in the central compartment (excluding DLN) was more favorable for DLN detection. ② The rate of DLN metastasis was 18.27% (38/208) . In the univariate analysis, DLN metastasis was significantly associated with the following variables:gender, whether it is microcarcinoma, isthmus involvement, number of lesions, extrathyroidal extension, tumor size, number of central lymph nodes (excluding DLN) removed and metastasis (all P<0.05) . In the multivariate analysis, tumor size larger than 1 cm, isthmus involvement and greater number of central lymph nodes (excluding DLN) metastasis were independent risk factors of DLN metastasis ( P<0.05) . ③ The sensitivity of DLN metastasis to predict extranodal invasion, central and lateral lymph node metastasis was 54.54%, 37.36% and 62.86%, with specificity of 78.69%, 92.45% and 55.56%, respectively. ④ Patients with DLN metastasis were more likely to receive total thyroidectomy, bilateral central lymph node dissection, and lateral cervical lymph node dissection. Conclusions:Due to high rate of DLN detected and metastasis, DLN should be routinely dissected. Patients with DLN metastasis predict high risk characteristics of PTC and extensive lymph node metastasis, which is of clinical significance for lymph node dissection.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE To investigate the clinical value of the lymph nodes posterior to the right recurrent laryngeal nerve (LN-prRLN, right VI-2) dissection in papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). METHODS We studied the relationships between LN-prRLN metastasis and the clinicopathological characteristics in 408 patients with right or bilateral PTC who underwent LN-prRLN dissection. RESULTS Right VI-2 lymph node metastasis was 16.67%. Single factor analysis showed that there were statistically significant correlations between right VI-2 metastasis and gender, age, size and number of right thyroid lobe tumor, capsular invasion, right VI-1 lymph node metastasis and their size, and also metastatic lymph node in the right cervical lateral compartment. Multivariate Logistic regression analysis showed that Right VI-2 lymph node metastasis was related to right tumor size, capsular invasion, the right VI-1 metastasis and right lateral lymph node metastasis(P<0.05). The receiver-operator characteristic (ROC) analysis showed that the risk factors of LN-prRLN: age <35.5 years, right tumor size >0.85 cm, lymph node (right VI-1) number >1.5, metastatic lymph node (right VI-1) size >0.45 cm, lymph node number in the right cervical lateral compartment >0.5 and the areas under the ROC curves were 0.585, 0.787, 0.788, 0.725, 0.719. CONCLUSION The dissection of LN-prRLN should be considered when patient with the risk factors such as male, age <35.5 years, right tumor size >0.85 cm, capsular invasion, lymph node (right VI-1) number >1.5, metastatic lymph node (right VI-1) size >0.45 cm, lymph node number in the right cervical lateral compartment >0.5.

ABSTRACT

Objective@#To summarize the gene mutation of early onset epileptic spasm with unknown reason.@*Method@#In this prospective study, data of patients with early onset epileptic spasm with unknown reason were collected from neurological department of Children's Hospital of Fudan University between March 2016 and December 2016. Patients with known disorders such as infection, metabolic, structural, immunological problems and known genetic mutations were excluded. Patients with genetic disease that can be diagnosed by clinical manifestations and phenotypic characteristics were also excluded. Genetic research methods included nervous system panel containing 1 427 epilepsy genes, whole exome sequencing (WES), analysis of copy number variation (CNV) and karyotype analysis of chromosome. The basic information, phenotypes, genetic results and the antiepileptic treatment of patients were analyzed.@*Result@#Nine of the 17 cases with early onset epileptic spasm were boys and eight were girls. Patients' age at first seizure onset ranged from 1 day after birth to 8 months (median age of 3 months). The first hospital visit age ranged from 1 month to 2 years (median age of 4.5 months). The time of following-up ranged from 8 months to 3 years and 10 months. All the 17 patients had early onset epileptic spasm. Video electroencephalogram was used to monitor the spasm seizure. Five patients had Ohtahara syndrome, 10 had West syndrome, two had unclear classification. In 17 cases, 10 of them had detected pathogenic genes. Nine cases had point mutations, involving SCN2A, ARX, UNC80, KCNQ2, and GABRB3. Except one case of mutations in GABRB3 gene have been reported, all the other cases had new mutations. One patient had deletion mutation in CDKL5 gene. One CNV case had 6q 22.31 5.5MB repeats. Ten cases out of 17 were using 2-3 antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) and the drugs had no effect. Seven cases used adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) and prednisone besides AEDs (a total course for 8 weeks). Among them, five cases had no effect and two cases were seizure free recently. A case with GABRB3 (C.905A>G) had seizure controlled for 3 mouths. A case with ARX (C.700G>A) had seizure controlled for 6 mouths.@*Conclusion@#The early onset epileptic spasm with unknown reason is highly related to genetic disorders. A variety of genetic mutations, especially new mutations were found. Genetic heterogeneity of epileptic spasm is obvious.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to evaluated the difference and consistency in tumor size measured by sonographic and pathological examination in papillary thyroid carcinoma(PTC).METHODS A total of 114 patients with PTC, including 122 malignant nodules, was collected from Hangzhou First People's Hospital between Jun 2012 and Jun 2014. The tumor sizes were measured by preoperative sonographic and postoperative pathologic evaluation. Pearson correlation analysis, paired t-test, and Bland-Altman plot were used to evaluate the correlation and consistency in tumor size measured by the two methods.RESULTS Pearson correlation analysis showed that the largest tumor size measured by sonography were positively correlated with pathologic size (r=0.957, P=0.000). Paired t-test showed that there were statistically difference between sonographic size and pathological size (8.24±5.06) mmvs (7.79±4.75) mm,P=0.001. The absolute difference value of the largest tumor size measured by the two methods was from zero to 6.5 mm, with the average of (1.03±1.14) mm. Bland-Altman analysis showed that the limits of agreement (LoA) of difference was from -2.41 mm to 3.33 mm, with the 95% confidence interval from -2.87 mm to 3.78 mm.Within the limit of the consistency, the maximum moduli was 2.9 mm.CONCLUSION There is a significant discrepancy between the preoperative sonographic and the pathologic size of the papillary thyroid carcinoma, which should be taken into account in clinical practice.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE The objective of this study is to discuss when to dissect the lymph nodes behind the right recurrent laryngeal nerve (LN-prRLN) from the standpoint of the right cervical level Ⅵ-1 (superficial layer to the recurrent laryngeal nerve) lymph nodes in papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) patients.METHODS The clinical data of 306 bilateral or right PTC patients from the Hangzhou First People's Hospital who underwent dissection of level Ⅵ-1 lymph nodes and LN-prRLN between March 2014 and September 2015 were analyzed. We measured the number of level Ⅵ-1 metastatic lymph nodes and size of level Ⅵ-1 lymph nodes metastasis loci to predict the metastasis of LN-prRLN.RESULTS The number of level Ⅵ-1 metastatic lymph nodes and size of level Ⅵ-1 lymph nodes metastasis loci were risk factors of LN-prRLN metastasis(P<0.05). When the number of the level Ⅵ-1 metastatic lymph nodes was greater than 1.5, the AUC was 0.813 (the sensitivity was 78.43%, the specificity was 76.65%). The ROC showed that when the size of level Ⅵ-1 lymph nodes metastasis loci were more than 0.45 cm, the AUC was 0.726 (sensitivity was 90.20%, specificity was 48.90%).CONCLUSION In bilateral or right PTC patients with metastasis of level Ⅵ-1 lymph nodes, especially when the number of level Ⅵ-1 metastatic lymph nodes was greater than 2cm and the metastasis loci were more than 0.45 cm, we should dissect the LN-prRLN.

ABSTRACT

PURPOSE: Although the polymorphisms of erythrocyte complement receptor type 1 (CR1) in patients with malaria have been extensively studied, a question of whether the polymorphisms of CR1 are associated with severe malaria remains controversial. Furthermore, no study has examined the association of CR1 polymorphisms with malaria in Chinese population. Therefore, we investigated the relationship of CR1 gene polymorphism and malaria in Chinese population. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We analyzed polymorphisms of CR1 gene rs2274567 G/A, rs4844600 G/A, and rs2296160 C/T in 509 patients with malaria and 503 controls, using the Taqman genotyping assay and PCR-direct sequencing. RESULTS: There were no significant differences in the genotype, allele and haplotype frequencies of CR1 gene rs2274567 G/A, rs4844600 G/A, and rs2296160 C/T polymorphisms between patients with malaria and controls. Furthermore, there was no association of polymorphisms in the CR1 gene with the severity of malaria in Chinese population. CONCLUSION: These findings suggest that CR1 gene rs2274567 G/A, rs4844600 G/A, and rs2296160 C/T polymorphisms may not be involved in susceptibility to malaria in Chinese population.

ABSTRACT

Objective To analyze the clinical features and efficacy of different treatments on 5 cases with Landau-Kleffner syndrome (LKS) with poor prognosis.Methods Five patients with LKS who had poor prognosis were enrolled in the Children's Hospital of Fudan University from September of 2008 to December of 2012.The clinical features and findings of video electroencephalograph (VEEG) of these patients were analyzed.In addition,the outcomes of treatments (antiepileptic drug,corticosteroids and ketogenic diet) on LKS who had poor prognosis were studied.The outcome of epilepsy was classified by using the Engel classification scheme and the outcome of electrical status epilepticus during sleep (ESES) was classified by the decrease in spike wave index (SWI).Results All of 5 patients (2 male and 3 female) had auditory agnosia and epileptic seizure.All patients had normal background activity and epileptiform discharges,and the location of epileptiform discharge was mainly from bilateral temporal;3 patients had ESES.Four out of the 5 patients had refractory epilepsy and the other one got seizure free with antiepileptic drug.Four patients received corticosteroids for 6 months.The aphasia disappeared in 1 patient,improved in 1 patient and sustained in the other 2 patients.Three patients who had ESES did not response to corticosteroids.Among 3 patients receiving ketogenic diet,1 patient was seizure free and the ESES disappeared;in another SWI was reduced;the rest one had a significant reduction in seizure.All the patients had improvement in their aphasia and cognition,however they still had cognitive disorder of various degrees.Conclusions The patients who had multiple seizure type or special seizure type may have poor outcome.Most of these patients have refractory epilepsy or persistent ESES.Corticosteroids can improve aphasia and cognition,but the persistence of ESES can make aphasia and cognition worse.Ketogenic diet can be used as an alternative treatment for refractory epilepsy or persistent ESES in LKS.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>BACKGROUND</b>Diabetic wound is one of the most serious complications of diabetes mellitus. There are no significantly effective therapies for chronic non-healing diabetes ulcer so far. This study aimed to explore the feasibility of healing impaired wound using artificial dermis constructed with human adipose derived stem cells (ASCs) and poly (L-glutamic acid)/chitosan (PLGA/CS) scaffold in streptozotocin-induced diabetic mice.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>ASCs were isolated from fresh human lipoaspirates and expanded ex vivo for three passages, and then cells were seeded onto PLGA/CS scaffold to form artificial dermis. Expression of VEGF and TGFβ1 by ASCs presented in artificial dermis was determined. The artificial dermis was transplanted to treat the 20 mm × 20 mm full-thickness cutaneous wound created on the back of diabetic mice. Wound treated with scaffold alone and without treatment, and wound in normal non-diabetic mice served as control.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>Cells growing within scaffold showed great proliferation potential, depositing abundant collagen matrix. Meanwhile, expression of VEGF and TGF-β1 by seeded ASCs maintained at a consistent high level. After treated with ASC based artificial dermis, diabetic wounds exhibited significantly higher healing rate compared with wounds treated with scaffold alone or without treatment. Histological examination also demonstrated an improvement in cutaneous restoration with matrix deposition and organization. Further quantitative analysis showed that there was a significant increase in dermis thickness and collagen content on artificial dermis treated wounds.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>ASC/PLGA artificial dermis can effectively accelerate diabetic wound healing by promoting angiogenic growth factors and dermal collagen synthesis.</p>

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To explore the changes of protein expression of mitochondrial fission gene dynamin-related 1(Drp 1) in the cortical neurons of rats with chronic fluorosis.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>A total of 120 one-month-old SD rats (each weighing approximately 100-120 g at the beginning of the experiment) were randomly divided into three groups, and fed with the different doses of fluoride containing in drinking water (untreated control containing 0 mg/L fluoride, and low-fluoride & high-fluoride supplemented with 10 and 50 mg/L fluoride,respectively). After 3 or 6 months exposure, 20 rats from each group were killed. Then the protein expression of mitochondrial fission gene, Drp1, was detected by immunohistochemistry and western-blotting method.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>Dental fluorosis and urinary fluorosis were obviously found in the rats exposed to fluoride. At the experiment period of 3 months, the numbers of positive cells of Drp1 detected by immunohistochemistry changed. Compared with the control group (36.3 ± 5.8), the changes in low-fluoride group (34.7 ± 4.1) showed no significant difference (t = 1.5, P > 0.05),but the increase in high-fluoride group (45.0 ± 4.7) had statistical significance (t = 8.8, P < 0.05). The western-blotting method had consistent results. Compared with the control group (0.59 ± 0.03), a significant increase of the average topical density in low- fluoride (0.62 ± 0.03) and high-fluoride (0.71 ± 0.02) groups were found (t = 0.02,0.11, P < 0.05). At the experiment period of 6 months, the numbers of positive cells of Drp1 detected by immunohistochemistry significantly changed. Compared with the control group (33.2 ± 4.4), the number in low- fluoride and high-fluoride groups were separately (36.6 ± 3.8) and (39.4 ± 4.2),both increased significantly (t = 3.5,6.3, P < 0.05). Same results could be found in western-blotting method,compared with the control group (0.65 ± 0.06), the average topical density in low- fluoride (0.80 ± 0.09) and high-fluoride (0.76 ± 0.08) groups both increased significantly (t = 0.1,0.1, P < 0.05).</p><p><b>CONCLUSIONS</b>Taking excessive amount of fluoride might result in the changes of expression of Drp1, and the neurons damage from the chronic fluorosis might be associated with the hyperfunction of mitochondrial fusion.</p>
