ABSTRACT

Background@#The poor bioadhesion capacity of tilmicosin resulting in treatment failure for Staphylococcus aureus small colony variants (SASCVs) mastitis. @*Objectives@#This study aimed to increase the bioadhesion capacity of tilmicosin for the SASCVs strain and improve the antibacterial effect of tilmicosin against cow mastitis caused by the SASCVs strain. @*Methods@#Tilmicosin-loaded chitosan oligosaccharide (COS)-sodium carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) composite nanogels were formulated by an electrostatic interaction between COS (positive charge) and CMC (negative charge) using sodium tripolyphosphate (TPP) (ionic crosslinkers). The formation mechanism, structural characteristics, bioadhesion, and antibacterial activity of tilmicosin composite nanogels were studied systematically. @*Results@#The optimized formulation was comprised of 50 mg/mL (COS), 32 mg/mL (CMC), and 0.25 mg/mL (TPP). The size, encapsulation efficiency, loading capacity, polydispersity index, and zeta potential of the optimized tilmicosin composite nanogels were 357.4 ± 2.6 nm, 65.4 ± 0.4%, 21.9 ± 0.4%, 0.11 ± 0.01, and -37.1 ± 0.4 mV, respectively; the sedimentation rate was one. Scanning electron microscopy showed that tilmicosin might be incorporated in nano-sized crosslinked polymeric networks. Moreover, adhesive studies suggested that tilmicosin composite nanogels could enhance the bioadhesion capacity of tilmicosin for the SASCVs strain. The inhibition zone of native tilmicosin, tilmicosin standard, and tilmicosin composite nanogels were 2.13 ± 0.07, 3.35 ± 0.11, and 1.46 ± 0.04 cm, respectively. The minimum inhibitory concentration of native tilmicosin, tilmicosin standard, and tilmicosin composite nanogels against the SASCVs strain were 2, 1, and 1 µg/mL, respectively. The in vitro time-killing curves showed that the tilmicosin composite nanogels increased the antibacterial activity against the SASCVs strain. @*Conclusions@#This study provides a potential strategy for developing tilmicosin composite nanogels to treat cow mastitis caused by the SASCVs strain.

ABSTRACT

There are two serious obstacles to tumor immunotherapy. Firstly, the immune response of the tumor is seriously reduced due to immunosuppressive tumor microenvironment (ITM) and low immunogenicity of tumor. The second obstacle is the dense and complex heterogeneous structures, which seriously prevent the nanoparticles (NPs) from penetrating deeper into tumor tissue. Immunogenic cell death (ICD) induced by doxorubicin (DOX) is an effective method to enhance tumor immune activity. However, interferon-γ (IFN-γ) secreted by cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) after ICD induction would increase the expression of indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase 1 (IDO1) and enhance ITM. IDO1 siRNA would reduce the expression of IDO1 protein, regulate the tumor immunosuppressive microenvironment and regulate ITM, so as to enhance the ICD effect of DOX. In this paper, a novel charge conversional, particle size reduction and highly penetrable NPs based on a pH sensitive copolymer poly(ethylene glycol)-poly-L-lysine-2,3-dimethylmaleic anhydride (mPEG-PLL-DMA, PLD) and polyamidoamine (PAMAM) dendrimers to achieve deep delivery of tumor tissue. DOX and IDO1 siRNA were encapsulated to achieve efficient tumor immunotherapy. Preparation and cell level experiments showed that PLD material had significant pH sensitivity. Results of 3D tumor penetrable experiment in vitro showed that adding the pH sensitive material PLD significantly improved the permeability of the preparation. In addition, 4T1 tumor model was established for BALB/c mice and all animal experiments were displayed in according with the requirements of the Animal Experiment Ethics Committee of Shenyang Pharmaceutical University. The results of in vivo efficacy experiments and tissue experiments evaluated that IDO1 siRNA significantly improved the ICD effect owing to DOX, so as to significantly inhibit tumor growth.

ABSTRACT

Traumatic fracture accounts for about 50% of the total of traffic accidents. The incidence of fracture in postmenopausal women is significantly higher than that in men. About 5%-10% of patients with bone fracture will suffer from complications such as delayed union or nonunion, which seriously affects the recovery of patients after operation and increases the economic burden of families and society, however, the specific regulatory mechanism has not been fully defined. Immune cells play an important regulatory role in fracture healing, and innate immune response is the first to initiate and participate in fracture healing. Macrophages are innate immune cells which widely exist in various tissues of the body. They play a complex and precise regulatory role in fracture healing by participating in inflammatory response, osteogenic and osteoclast differentiation, mineralization and angiogenesis. Nevertheless, macrophages can be polarized into different subsets and perform different or even opposite functions under different immune microenvironments. At present, it is believed that there are three main polarization states of macrophages: non-activated M0 macrophages, classically activated M1 macrophages and selectively activated M2 macrophage. It has been shown that each subset was positively involved in the regulation process of fracture healing at different stages. Herein, in this paper, the role of different subsets of macrophages in different stages of fracture healing and the related experimental studies are reviewed, helpfully to clarify the immunological mechanism of fracture in-depth and provide new strategies for the research on the immunological intervention of fractures targeting macrophages.

ABSTRACT

Tibial plateau fracture is a common acute trauma of the knee joint. At present, there are many studies on its classification and treatment, and minimally invasive treatment has become a research hotspot and mainstream direction of tibial plateau fracture. We summarized the clinical results of minimally invasive treatment of more than 300 cases of tibial plateau fractures, and proposed the concept of core weight-bearing area on tibial plateau, that is, the core weight-bearing area of the tibial plateau of the knee joint under normal motion statuswhile walking and moderate-intensity running. We performed thinsection CT scanning of the knee joint in a male volunteer for three-dimension finite element modeling.The results showed that during the walking state (the load was twice that of gravity), the core weight-bearing area of the medial and lateral plateaus was 389 mm 2 and 363 mm 2, accounting for 33.2% and 42.9% of tibial plateau, respectively;during the moderate-intensity running state (the load was four times that of gravity), the core weight-bearing area of the medial and lateral plateaus was 418 mm 2 and 406 mm 2, accounting for 35.6% and 48.0%of tibial plateau, respectively. Accordingly, tibial plateau fractures are supposed to be divided into core weight-bearing fracture and non-core weight-bearing fracture, and there are significant differences in the treatment ofthese twokinds of fractures: reduction is more demanding for core weight-bearing fracture,and the fracture involves the core area closely, the anatomical reduction is sought; for non-core weight-bearing area, the reduction requirements can be appropriately low demanded, and even in some cases , for example simple avulsion fracture, marginal fracture, some tibial plateau Hoffa fractures,can be treated conservatively. In summary, during clinical diagnosis and treatmentpractice, orthopedic surgeons should take the core weight-bearing area fracture as the core of diagnosis and treatment, strictly evaluate the extent of fracture involvement, select targeted internal fixation materials, and target to promote more accurate, minimally invasive, and individualized treatment of tibial plateau fractures.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To evaluate the clinical efficacy of minimally invasive treatment of Fraser type Ⅱ floating knee by homeopathic reduction.Methods:From November 2016 to July 2018, 7 patients with Fraser type Ⅱ floating knee were treated by homeopathic reduction and minimally invasive surgery at Trauma Emergency Center, The Third Hospital of Hebei Medical University. They were 5 males and 2 females, aged from 30 to 82 years (average, 52 years). They all suffered from tibial plateau fracture complicated with floating knee, with 5 cases of Fraser type ⅡA (tibial plateau fracture complicated with femoral shaft fracture) and 2 cases of Fraser type ⅡC (tibial plateau fracture complicated with femoral condyle fracture). The femoral and tibial plateau fractures were reduced with a bidirectional traction reduction device, followed by minimally invasive implantation of internal fixators. The operation time, length of a single incision, blood loss and fluoroscopic frequency were recorded. The anteroposterior and lateral X-ray films of the lower limb were taken and fracture healing time was recorded during follow-up. The function of knee joint was evaluated by Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) scoring system at the last follow-up.Results:For the 7 patients, operation time averaged 87.2 min, length of a single incision 2.8 cm, blood loss 471 mL, and fluoroscopy frequency 37 times. The postoperative X-ray films showed fine alignment and force line and smooth articular surface in all patients. All the incisions healed by grade A. The follow-up time for 7 patients ranged from 12 to 21 months (average, 15.6 months). All the fractures healed after an average time of 12.8 weeks. The HSS scores at the last follow-up showed that 6 cases were excellent and one was good.Conclusion:The fractures of the femur side and of the tibia side can be treated separately by closed reduction and internal fixation using a homeopathic bidirectional traction reduction device so as to obtain better knee joint function.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To investigate the associations of articular depression depth (ADD) and tibial plateau widening (TPW) by pre-operative CT measurement with incidence of lateral meniscal tear in patients with Schatzker type Ⅱ tibial plateau fracture.Methods:Included in this retrospective study were 131 patients who had been admitted to Emergency Center of Trauma, The Third Hospital Affiliated to Hebei Medical University from January 2016 to January 2020 for Schatzker type Ⅱtibial plateau fractures. They were 88 males and 51 females, aged from 18 to 60 years (average, 41.5 years), with 74 right and 57 left sides injured. All patients were treated with closed reduction and internal fixation assisted by bidirectional traction. Arthroscopy was used to detect the status of lateral meniscus immediately after closed reduction and internal fixation of the fracture fragments. Furthermore, patients were divided into 2 groups according to the integrity of lateral meniscus: meniscal tear group ( n=70) and tear-free group ( n=61). The 2 groups were compared in terms of age, gender, body mass index(BMI), injury side, time interval from injury to surgery, TPW and ADD. The receiver operating curve (ROC) was drafted to calculate the cut-off values of TPW and ADD in complication of lateral meniscal tear in patients with Schatzker type Ⅱ tibial plateau fracture. Results:The overall incidence of lateral meniscal tear in this cohort was 53.4% (70/131). There was no statistically significant difference in terms of age, gender, injury side, BMI or time interval from injury to surgery between the 2 groups ( P>0.05); TPW and ADD were significantly higher in the meniscal tear group than in the tear-free group ( P<0.05). To predict lateral meniscal tear in patients with Schatzker type Ⅱtibial plateau fracture, the area under ROC was 0.656 (95% CI: 0.562 to 0.750, P=0.002) for TPW and 0.709 (95% CI: 0.619 to 0.800, P<0.001) for ADD, respectively; the cut-off values of TPW and ADD were 4.3 mm and 6.1 mm. Conclusion:TPW and ADD may be effective predictors for prediction of lateral meniscal tear in patients with Schatzker type Ⅱ tibial plateau fracture.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To explore the risk factors and the treatment outcomes of rifampicin-resistant tuberculosis (RR-TB) in Guizhou Province.Methods:The clinical data of 16 548 pulmonary tuberculosis patients with drug sensitivity test results registered in the Tuberculosis Information Management System in China from designated tuberculosis hospitals of 88 counties (cities, districts) in Guizhou Province from January 2014 to December 2018 were collected. The gender, age, occupation, ethnicity, patient registration classification, molecular biology or Lowenstein-Jenden (L-J) solid culture results of positive sputum culture patients, and treatment outcomes were retrospectively analyzed. Cohen′s kappa coefficient was used to analyze the consistency between molecular biology and L-J solid culture in detecting rifampin resistance. Chi-square test and non-conditional logistic regression model were used to analyze the risk factors of mono-rifampicin resistance tuberculosis and multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) and the factors affecting treatment outcomes.The measurement data were compared by chi-square test or Fisher exact test. Results:The detection rate of RR-TB in the newly diagnosed cases was 6.79%(807/11 883), and that in the retreated cases was 30.01%(1 400/4 665). The drug sensitivity tests of 184 sputum culture positive RR-TB samples were performed by both L-J solid culture and molecular biology, and the rifampicin resistance detection rates were 20.65%(38/184) and 16.85%(31/184), respectively. The consistency between two methods was good ( kappa=0.697, 95% confidence interval ( CI) 0.564-0.830, P<0.01). Multivariate logistic regression analysis showed that patients aged 20 to 39 years old (odds ratio ( OR)=1.679, 95% CI 1.134-2.487) and aged 40 to 60 years old ( OR=1.526, 95% CI 1.019-2.283) were the high risk groups for MDR-TB. Treatment failure ( OR=27.753, 95% CI 22.455-34.300; OR=2.982, 95% CI 1.544-5.760, respectively), relapse and return ( OR=5.381, 95% CI 4.563-6.346; OR=3.897, 95% CI 2.901-5.234, respectively) were both high risk factors for MDR-TB and mono-rifampicin resistance tuberculosis. The treatment rate of RR-TB patients was 39.96% (396/991) from 2014 to 2016. Among 396 treatment cases, 138(34.85%) were cured and 16(4.04%) died. The patients aged>60 years old had lower cure rate (12.68%(9/71) vs 39.69%(129/325)) and higher death rate (11.27%(8/71) vs 2.46%(8/325)) than those aged ≤60 years. The differences were both statistically significant ( χ2=18.732, P<0.01; Fisher′s exact test, P=0.003). Conclusions:The RR-TB patients in Guizhou Province are mainly re-treated. Young and middle-age (20-60 years old) and treatment history are risk factors for RR-TB. The patients over 60 years old have a low cure rate and a high mortality rate. It is suggested to strengthen the screening, treatment and management of RR-TB to reduce the spread of tuberculosis.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To analyze the cause of poor distance visual acuity after refractive rotationally asymmetric multifocal intraocular lens (IOL) implantation in cataract patients.Methods:The data were collected from patients who underwent cataract phacoemulsification combined with intraocular lens (refractive rotationally asymmetric multifocal intraocular lens, SBL-3) implantation at Beijing Aier Intech Eye Hospital from December 2016 to December 2018, and followed up for six months after operation. Standard logarithmic visual acuity chart was used to record uncorrected distance visual acuity, best corrected distance visual acuity, intermediate visual acuity, and near visual acuity. Defocus curve was drawn. The corneal topography, postoperative visual quality and intraocular lens centered or not were checked by Itrace.Results:Total 95 eyes of 70 patients were implemented by cataract phacoemulsification combined with regional refractive intraocular lens operation. Among them, uncorrected distance visual acuity of 16 eyes of 16 patients, were less than or equal to 0.6. The distance power zone of the intraocular lens of 7 patients were placed in the area of high corneal refractive power. Because of measurement error, reserved error, etc, the power of IOL in 7 patients had deviations. Farsightedness and dizziness occurred in 2 patients. The visual discomfort symptoms disappeared and vision improved through intraocular lens positioning.Conclusions:The poor quality of distance visual acuity is mainly caused by the coincidence of the distance power zone with the corneal high-refractive region, the deviation of the power of the intraocular lens, and the intraocular lens center shift. If the cornea has a high refractive area, the distance power zone should avoid to be placed in the same area. The intraocular lens should be reserved between 0-+ 0.25 D. Two-step surgery is recommended. It′s also recommended to make sure the lens is centered during the operation by lens reflection method.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To analyze the incidence and risk factors of non-acute symptomatic portal vein thrombosis (PVT) after endoscopic gastric variceal injection (GVI) in the treatment of liver cirrhosis with gastric variceal bleeding (GVB).Methods:66 patients with GVB who were treated with GVI for the first time from July 2017 to October 2019 in Minhang Hospital Affiliated to Fudan University were retrospectively analyzed. The data of gender, age, preoperative Child-Pugh grade, preoperative platelet count, preoperative plasma D-dimer concentration, preoperative splenic length, preoperative portal vein velocity, preoperative splenic vein velocity, preoperative portal vein diameter, preoperative splenic vein diameter, treatment times, total number of injection points, total dose of sclerosing agent and tissue adhesive agent were collected. The patients were divided into PVT group and non-PVT group according to the occurrence of non-acute symptomatic PVT within one year after GVI. Univariate analysis was performed first, and then the factors with P<0.2 were included in the binary logistic regression model to screen the risk factors of PVT after GVI. Results:There were 25 cases (37.88%) in PVT group and 41 cases (62.12%) in non-PVT group. There were significant differences in D-dimer concentration, spleen length, Child-Pugh grade and total dose of sclerosing agent between the two groups ( P<0.05). The D-dimer concentration ( OR=2.319, 95% CI:1.359-3.956), spleen length ( OR=1.044, 95% CI:1.007-1.081) and total dose of sclerosing agent ( OR=1.075, 95% CI:1.004-1.152) were independent risk factors for PVT ( P<0.05). Conclusions:Preoperative D-dimer concentration, spleen length and total dose of sclerosing agent can predict the risk of PVT after GVI. In order to reduce the risk of PVT after GVI, the dose of sclerosing agent should be reduced as much as possible.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To explore the relationship between dental fluorosis and serum chemical elements in children after water modification.Methods:Using the method of stratified sampling, according to the monitoring data of the Xi'an Center for Disease Control and Prevention in the past 20 years, the drinking-water-borne fluorosis areas in Xi'an City were changed according to the water-improvement period of 1-, 5-, 10- and ≥15 years, and 2 villages in each layer were selected as the survey sites. Each survey site selected school-age children aged 7 to 13 years old as the survey subjects to detect the prevalence of dental fluorosis; and blood samples were collected to detect 14 chemical elements contents in the serum [calcium (Ca), iron (Fe), magnesium (Mg), copper (Cu), zinc (Zn), iodine (I), selenium (Se), lead (Pb), arsenic (As), cadmium (Cd), chromium (Cr), fluorine (F), mercury (Hg), nickel (Ni)]. The differences of chemical element contents in children with different water improvement years and different dental fluorosis conditions were analyzed.Results:The prevalence of dental fluorosis of children were 51.40% (55/107), 16.92% (11/65), 16.67% (17/102) and 5.08% (6/118) in the villages with different water improvement period, the difference was statistically significant (χ 2 = 74.444, P < 0.05). Serum levels of Ca, Fe, Mg, Cu, Zn, I, Se, Pb, As, Cr, F and Ni in children of different water improvement period were compared, the difference were statistically significant ( P < 0.05). Levels of Fe, Zn and Ni in dental fluorosis patients were lower than those in normal children ( P < 0.05), and the serum fluoride level was higher than that of normal children ( P < 0.05). There were no significant differences in the contents of other chemical elements levels between children with dental fluorosis and normal children ( P > 0.05). Conclusions:The detection rate of dental fluorosis in children in ward villages whose water has been improved for more than 15 years is the lowest, and the detection rate of children with dental fluorosis can be reduced by improving water to reduce fluoride. Children in the drinking-water-borne fluorosis areas are deficient in some trace element.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To evaluate the effect of different water-improving methods on dental fluorosis of children aged 8 to 12 in drinking-water-borne fluorosis areas in Xi'an City, and provide basis for making fine prevention and control measures.Methods:In 2018, 50 drinking-water-borne fluorosis villages in Xi'an City with water improvement time from 2011 to 2013 were selected as survey sites. The condition and the way of water improvement were surveyed, water fluoride content was determined and the prevalence of dental fluorosis in children aged 8 to 12 was examined, and the rates of dental fluorosis were compared before and after the water improvement in the 50 villages.Results:The water-improving projects were in normal operation in 50 villages. The medians of water fluoride content were 0.31, 0.88 and 1.14 mg/L in villages with municipal water supply, low fluorine well and defluoridation treatment water supply (the villages of different water-improvement methods were 12, 24 and 14, respectively), the differences were statistically significant ( H = 75.54, P < 0.01). The qualification rates of water fluoride in villages with different water-improvement methods were 100.00% (12/12), 79.17% (19/24) and 57.14% (8/14), and the difference was statistically significant (χ 2 = 6.95, P < 0.05). The detection rate of dental fluorosis was 43.17% (218/505) in the 11 villages with excessive water fluoride content, and the detection rate was 20.77% (331/1 594) in the 39 villages with qualified water fluoride content, the difference was statistically significant (χ 2 = 99.66, P < 0.01). After water improvement, the total detection rate of dental fluorosis (26.16%, 549/2 099) in the 50 villages was lower than that before water improvement (41.66%, 959/2 302), the difference was statistically significant (χ 2 = 117.17, P < 0.01). The detection rates of dental fluorosis were reduced after the water improvement in villages with municipal water supply and low fluorine well, the differences were statistically significant (χ 2 = 74.37, 69.36, P < 0.01). The detection rate was declined after water improvement in villages with defluoridation treatment water supply, but the difference was not significant (χ 2 = 0.78, P > 0.05). There was a statistically significant difference in the detection rate of dental fluorosis among children in villages with different water-improvement methods (χ 2 = 72.79, P < 0.01). The detection rate of dental fluorosis in villages with defluoridation treatment water supply [39.53% (200/506)] was higher than that in villages with municipal water supply [17.97% (133/740)] and low fluorine well [25.32% (216/853)], the differences were statistically significant ( P < 0.017); the detection rate of dental fluorosis in villages with municipal water supply was lower than that in villages with low fluorine well ( P < 0.017). Conclusions:The dental fluorosis of children's has been effectively controlled in the villages after water improvement in Xi'an City. The fluoride content in the water and the detection rate of dental fluorosis in children in some endemic areas are still high. It is necessary to further improve the water quality or consolidate the improvement effect as soon as possible.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To investigate the current situation of suicidal self-injurious behavior in teenagers and analyze its influencing factors. Methods:From January to November 2020, a stratified sampling method was used to investigate 707 teenagers in Guangdong. The “questionnaire of health-related behaviors of Chinese teenagers” compiled by the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention was used anonymously to investigate the current situation of suicidal self-injurious behavior of the teenagers. The chi-square test was used for univariate analysis, and logistic regression was used for multivariate analysis. Results:The incidence rate of suicidal self-injurious behavior was 14.57% (103/707). It was 13.31% (45/338) in males, 15.72% (58/369) in females, 13.83% (48/347) in junior high school students and 15.28% (55/360) in senior high school students. There was no statistical significance in the incidence of suicidal self-injurious behavior of teenagers between different genders, different learning stages, smoking or not, asexual behavior or not, gambling or not, and fighting or not (all P>0.05). The incidence of suicidal self-injurious behaviors in teenagers from single parent family, drunkenness, runaway, loneliness, under great study pressure, lovelorn, and mobile phone addiction was significantly higher (χ2=13.809, 10.852, 14.279, 11.451, 12.893, 22.905, 19.473, respectively. All P<0.001). Logistic regression analysis showed that the following were main risk factors affecting the incidence of suicidal self-injurious behavior in teenagers: single parent family (OR=3.826, 95%CI: 1.402-7.501), drunkenness (OR=3.903, 95%CI: 1.512-7.368), runaway (OR=3.447, 95%CI: 1.669-7.715), loneliness (OR=3.613, 95%CI: 1.504-7.697), great study pressure (OR=3.712, 95%CI: 1.387-7.604), lovelorn(OR=4.125, 95%CI: 1.516-8.117) and mobile phone addiction(OR=4.027, 95%CI: 1.499-7.984 (all P<0.001). Conclusion:The incidence of suicidal self-injurious behavior in teenagers is not low in Guangdong, and targeted measures should be developed to screen and intervene based on the influencing factors.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To observe the effect of braces combined with insoles on scoliosis and walking performance in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). Methods:From September, 2019 to September, 2020, 42 subjects with AIS were selected and randomly divided into brace group (n = 21) and brace combined with insole group (n = 21). Both groups received two-month routine rehabilitation, including braces for 22 to 23 hours a day and gymnastics for 30 minutes a day. The brace combined with insole group additionally wore insoles, at least eight hours a day for two months. Meanwhile, 32 even-aged adolescents were recruited as healthy controls. Firstly, gait and plantar pressure of 42 patients and 32 healthy adolescents were compared to find out abnormal indicators. Secondly, the scoliosis and above abnormal indicators were compared between the brace group and the brace combined with insole group Results:The center of pressure excursion index (CPEI) was higher in AIS group than in the healthy group (F = 3.120, P < 0.05), and there was no significant difference in walking speed, gait cycle and phase between two groups (P>0.05). An obvious imbalanced pressure was observed between the medial and lateral heel of the single foot and the bilateral foot in AIS patients (P < 0.05). After treatment, the Cobb's angle decreased in AIS patients (t > 7.552, P < 0.001), however, no difference was found between the brace group and the brace combined with insole group (t = 0.459, P > 0.05); the CPEI decreased (t = 2.209, P < 0.05), and the pressure in medial and lateral heel as well as the left and right foot tended to be balanced (t > 2.306, P < 0.05) in the brace combined with insole group, and were better than that of the brace group (|t| > 2.319, P < 0.05). Conclusion:Plantar pressure distribution shows obvious local and global asymmetric changes in AIS patients. The efficacy of insoles on the scoliosis is limited, but the insole can effectively improve the abnormal biomechanics and balance the force.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To analyze the clinical application and main roles of Cardiopulmonary Exercise Test (CPET) in patients with lung cancer based on the theory of the World Health Organization Family International Classifications (WHO-FICs). Methods:An evidence-based scoping review was implemented. Literatures related to the applications of CPET in patients with lung cancer were retrieved, from databases including PubMed, Web of Science, CNKI and Wanfang data; from January, 2013 to April, 2021. The indications, contraindications, motor dysfunction, pulmonary rehabilitation interventions, evaluation methods and indicators, and the environment factors of CPET applicated in patients with lung cancer was reviewed based on WHO-FICs framework. Results:This paper analyzed the included literatures from five aspects: the type of disease, functioning, pulmonary rehabilitation exercise interventions, functioning evaluation and environment factors. The major diseases included different pathological types of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) (2C25), and the most common complication of lung cancer was chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) (CA22). The obstacles of CPET conducted in lung cancer patients mainly included physical structure and functional activities and participation obstacles. Pulmonary rehabilitation based on the CPET was divided into therapeutic, preventive and health promotion interventions. The evaluation tools and indicators were oxygen intake, carbon dioxide output, oxygen pulse, heart rate, blood pressure, electrocardiogram, Borg Scale, 6-minute Walking Test, the MOS Item Short Form Health Survey (SF-36), etc. The classification and description of environmental factors were provided. Conclusion:The application of CPET in lung cancer mainly included preoperative evaluation and prognosis prediction, exercise prescription formulation and exercise effect assessment, anti-cancer treatment impact assessment. Based on WHO-FICs theory system, the applications of CPET mainly involved NSCLC, and COPD was the most common complication of lung cancer. Pulmonary rehabilitation for lung cancer is function- and demand-oriented. Based on CPET evaluation results, individualized therapeutic, preventive and health promotion interventions are conducted to improve the overall function and optimize the health outcomes of patients with lung cancer.

ABSTRACT

BackgroundGenetic interactions are known to play an important role in the missing heritability problem for type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Interactions between enhancers and their target genes play important roles in gene regulation and disease pathogenesis. In the present study, we aimed to identify genetic interactions between enhancers and their target genes associated with T2DM.MethodsWe performed genetic interaction analyses of enhancers and protein-coding genes for T2DM in 2,696 T2DM patients and 3,548 controls of European ancestry. A linear regression model was used to identify single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) pairs that could affect the expression of the protein-coding genes. Differential expression analyses were used to identify differentially expressed susceptibility genes in diabetic and nondiabetic subjects.ResultsWe identified one SNP pair, rs4947941×rs7785013, significantly associated with T2DM (combined P=4.84×10−10). The SNP rs4947941 was annotated as an enhancer, and rs7785013 was located in the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene. This SNP pair was significantly associated with EGFR expression in the pancreas (P=0.033), and the minor allele “A” of rs7785013 decreased EGFR gene expression and the risk of T2DM with an increase in the dosage of “T” of rs4947941. EGFR expression was significantly upregulated in T2DM patients, which was consistent with the effect of rs4947941×rs7785013 on T2DM and EGFR expression. A functional validation study using the Mouse Genome Informatics (MGI) database showed that EGFR was associated with diabetes-relevant phenotypes.ConclusionGenetic interaction analyses of enhancers and protein-coding genes suggested that EGFR may be a novel susceptibility gene for T2DM.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To investigate the correlation between preoperative serum γ-glutamyl transferase (GGT) level and the postoperative survival of patients with renal cell carcinoma.Methods:The clinical data of 235 patients with renal cell carcinoma who underwent nephrectomy from December 2005 to December 2011 in the Affiliated Hospital of China University of Mining and Technology were retrospectively analyzed. According to the preoperative serum GGT level at 1.5 times the upper limit of normal value 90 U/L (the upper limit of normal value of samples in this study was 60 U/L), patients were divided into 2 groups: GGT ≤ 90 U/L group (218 cases) and GGT>90 U/L group (17 cases). The correlation between GGT and clinicopathological characteristics as well as postoperative survival of patient with renal cell carcinoma was also analyzed.Results:There were statistically significant differences in gender, age, the level of the aspartate aminotransferase (AST), the level of alanine aminotransferase (ALT), the neutrpphil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), lymph node metastasis, distant metastasis, neoplasm staging between GGT ≤ 90 U/L group and >90 U/L group (all P < 0.05). Kaplan-Meier survival analysis showed that the median overall survival time was 84 months and 54 months, respectively in GGT ≤ 90 U/L group and GGT > 90 U/L group, and the difference was statistically significant of both groups ( χ2 = 4.334, P = 0.037). Univariate Cox proportional risk regression model showed that pathologic type, pathology T staging, preoperative GGT level, lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) level, ALT level were influencing factors of postoperative overall survival in patient with renal cell carcinoma (all P < 0.05). The multivariate Cox regression model analysis showed that the pathological type ( HR = 2.323, 95% CI 1.228-4.396, P = 0.010), GGT level ( HR = 2.406, 95% CI 1.077-5.376, P = 0.032), LDH level ( HR = 2.320, 95% CI 1.080-4.981, P = 0.031) were independent influencing factors of postoperative overall survival in patient with renal cell carcinoma. Conclusions:Preoperative elevated serum GGT level is associated with poor prognosis of patients with renal cell carcinoma, and the monitoring of it may help to evaluate the prognosis of patients and provide guidelines for individual treatment method.
