ABSTRACT

Objective To discuss the expression of Foxp3+ regulatory T cells (Foxp3+ Tregs) and programmed death receptor 1 (PD1) in epithelial ovarian cancer tissues and its clinicopathological significance. Methods One hundred and twenty-nine patients with epithelial ovarian cancer were selected from June 2011 and June 2014. Immunohistochemical method was used to detect the expression of Foxp3+ Tregs and PD1 in the epithelial ovarian cancer tissue and the normal tissue adjacent to the carcinoma. The clinicopathological relationship between the expression of Foxp3+ Tregs and PD1 of epithelial ovarian cancer were analyzed. Results The positive expression rate of Foxp3+Tregs and PD1 in epithelial ovarian cancer was significantly higher than that of normal tissue adjacent to the carcinoma [71.32%(92/129) vs. 1.55%(2/129), 65.89%(85/129) vs. 3.10%(4/129)], the difference was statistically significant (P<0.05). The expression of Foxp3+Tregs and PD1 in epithelial ovarian cancer was related to lymph node metastasis, TNM staging, and degree of differentiation (P<0.05), it was not related to the age, the size of the tumor, and the pathological type of the patients (P > 0.05). During the follow-up period of 3 years, the survival rate of patients with expression of Foxp3+ Tregs was significantly lower than that of the negative expression: 21.74%(20/92)vs.78.38%(29/37), the survival rate of patients with PD1 positive expression was significantly lower than that of the negative expression:28.24% (24/85) vs.56.82%(25/44) , P < 0.05. There was a positive correlation between the expression of Foxp3+ Tregs and PD1 in epithelial ovarian cancer (P < 0.05). Conclusions The abnormal expression of Foxp3+Tregs and PD1 in epithelial ovarian cancer is related to the development of tumour, it can be used as an important biomarker to evaluate the pathological progress and prognosis of patients. It is worth for further clinical promotion.

ABSTRACT

Objective To explore central mechanism of metformin(MET)in salt -sensitive hypertensive rats by assessing the effect of metformin on inflammation and oxidative stress in hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus (PVN),sympathetic nerve activity and blood pressure.Methods Eight -week -old male Dahl salt -sensitive rats were divided into 4 groups:the normal -salt diet control group[0.3% NaCl +intracerebroventricular(ICV)artificial cerebrospinal fluid(aCSF)],the normal -salt diet with MET group(0.3% NaCl +ICV MET 25μg/d],the high -salt diet control group (8% NaCl +ICV aCSF),the high -salt diet with MET group (8% NaCl +ICV MET 25μg/d). Mean arterial pressure(MAP)was determined every week by a tail -cuff occlusion.After 6 weeks,all rats were eutha-nized,and blood and brain tissues were collected.Then,the plasma norepinephrine(NE,an indicator of sympathetic activity)was detected by enzyme linked immune sorbent assay(ELISA).The expression levels of interleukin(IL)-1β,IL -10 and NOX -2[a subunit of NAD(P)H oxidase],superoxide dismutase(SOD)in the PVN were detected by immunofluorescence,immunohistochemistry and Western blot methods.Reactive oxygen species(ROS)was detec-ted by dihydroethidium(DHE)staining.Results The MAP level of high -salt diet with metformin group was attenu-ated compared with that of the high -salt diet control group[(129.55 ±6.52)mmHg vs.(154.47 ±6.57)mmHg, F =121.90,P <0.05].The change of plasma NE level of high -salt diet with metformin group was lower compared with that of the high -salt diet control group[(364.57 ±30.73)pg/mL vs.(547.68 ±25.08)pg/mL,F =179.24, P <0.05].The expression levels of IL -1β,IL -6,NOX -2 and ROS were markedly higher in high -salt diet with metformin than those of the high -salt diet control group(F =27.80,21.20,22.48,31.99,all P <0.05),which of IL -10 and SOD was lower(F =17.69,23.69,all P <0.05).Conclusion Metformin may attenuate blood pressure in salt -sensitive hypertensive rats,at least partly via decreasing inflammatory molecules and inhibiting oxidative stress in the PVN,subsequently inhibiting sympathoexcitation.

ABSTRACT

This paper is aimed to investigate the feasibility of applying the small intestine submucosa (SIS) as the scaffold in constructing tissue engineering cartilage in vitro. We obtained SIS from the small intestine of specific pathogen-free pigs. Then we isolated tunica submucosa layer from the mucosal, muscular, and serosal layers by gentle mechanic abrasion. The SIS was made acellular by combination of detergent and enzyme digestion. The chondrocytes were seeded onto the SIS and were cultured for 3 weeks. The cell growth, attachment and distribution were detected by histochemical stain, immunohistochemical stain and scan electron microscope. The chondrocytes could adhere and grow well on the matrix surface, and synthesize a large of the GAG and type U collagen. However, the chondrocytes grew only on the surface andsuperficial layer of the scaffold, they did not move into the inner part of the scaffold. It could be concluded that SIS has good cellular compatibility without cytotoxicity and provides temporary substrate to which these anchorage-dependent cells can adhere, and stimulate the chondrocytes anchored on the scaffold to proliferate and keep differentiated phenotype. Further study will be needed to promote the ability of chondrocyte chemotaxis in order to distribute the chondrocytes into the whole scaffold uniformly.

ABSTRACT

Objective To explore short-term prognosis of patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and prognostic risk factors, and to provide information for prognostic risk assessment. Methods A total of 156 patients with acute coronary syndrome were enrolled. The correlations of baseline characteristics with 30-day improvement, death, angina pectoris and heart failure were analyzed using unordered multivariate logistic regression. Results Logistic regression analysis showed that the independent risk factors for 30-day death included age (OR=1.20, 95%CI: 1.07-1.34), diabetes (OR=19.41, 95%CI: 3.02-124.70), leukocytosis (OR=11.36, 95%CI: 1.87-69.11) and increased platelet (OR=7.72, 95%CI: 1.29-46.15). The independent risk factors for 30-day angina pectoris included leukocytosis (OR=2.35, 95%CI: 0.89-6.17) and dyslipidemia (OR=6.25, 95%CI: 2.11-18.48). The independent risk factors for the occurrence of heart failure during 30-day post-ACS included age (OR=1.10, 95%CI: 1.03-1.17), male (OR=4.18, 95%CI: 0.81-21.51), leukocytosis (OR=2.97, 95%CI: 1.09-8.14) and dyslipidemia (OR=7.69, 95%CI: 2.39-24.76). Conclusions Age, diabetes, leukocytosis and increased platelet are independent risk factors associated with 30-day death; Leukocytosis and dyslipidemia are independent risk factors associated with 30-day angina pectoris; Age, male, leukocytosis and dyslipidemia are the independent risk factors associated with 30-day heart failure.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate the association of lipoprotein lipase gene Hind Ⅲ and S447X polymorphisms with metabolic syndrome. Methods PCR-RFLP was used to detect lipoprotein lipase Hind Ⅲ and S447X genotypes in 401 subjects(including 201 controls, 200 metabolic syndrome patients). Results ( 1 ) The levels of waist circumference ( WC ) , hip circumference ( HC ) , waist-to-hip ratio ( WHR ) , body mass index (BMI), systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure ( DBP) , total cholesterol ( TC) , triglyceride (TG), high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C), low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C), and fasting plasma glucose (FPG) were significantly different between metabolic syndrome group and control group (all P< 0.05). (2)The frequencies of H+H+ genotype,H+allele,SS genotype, and S allele for metabolic syndrome were all significantly higher than those for controls( H+H+ genotype:66. 5% vs 54.2% ,P=0.012; H+ allele:78.0% vs 71.4%, P=0.031;SS genotype:89.5% vs 77. 1% , P = 0.001; Sallel:94.5% vs 87. 56% , P = 0.001). (3) The levels of WC, HC, WHR, BMI, SBP, DBP, TG, LDL-C, and FPG in H + H-/H-H- genotype were significantly lower than those in H+H+ genotype, HDL-C was significantly higher than that in H+H+ genotype ( all P<0. 05). The levels of WC, HC, WHR, BMI, SBP, DBP, TC, TG, and FPG in SX/XX genotype were significantly lower than those in SS genotype, HDL-C was significantly higher than that in SS genotype ( all P< 0.05). (4)Multi-way logistic regression analysis suggested that risk factors for metabolic syndrome were smoking, drinking, and SS genotype (OR value was 4.289,2.268, and 2. 597, respectively ). (5) Result of interaction analysis among different factors indicated that the risk for metabolic syndrome in smoker with SS genotype was 3. 996 times of non-smokers with SX/XX genotype. Conclusions The lipoprotein lipase gene S447X polymorphism is associated with metabolic syndrome risk in Kazakh, and SS genotype and S allele may serve as genetic risk factors of metabolic syndrome, H + H-/H-H- and SX/XX genotypes yield beneficial effect for lipid and blood pressure. SS genotype and smoking may exist additive effect.
