OBJECTIVE: To observe the effect of electroacupuncture (EA) on postoperative ileus after laparotomy for gastrointestinal cancer. METHODS: A total of 90 patients with postoperative ileus after laparotomy for gastrointestinal cancer were randomized into an EA group and a conventional treatment group, 45 cases in each one. In the conventional treatment group, the postoperative fast track surgical regimen was accepted. In the EA group, on the base of the treatment as the conventional treatment group, acupuncture was applied to Zusanli (ST 36), Shangjuxu (ST 37), Yinlingquan (SP 9) and Taichong (LR 3) and electric stimulation was attached on Zusanli (ST 36) and Yinlingquan (SP 9), with continuous wave, 2 Hz in frequency and 3-5 mA in intensity. Acupuncture was provided once daily till the onset of postoperative exhaust and defecation. The first postoperative exhaust time, the first postoperative defecation time, the postoperative hospital stay and the wound pain under standing on the next morning after entering group were compared in the patients between the two groups. The impact of the EA expectation was analyzed on the first postoperative exhaust time, the first postoperative defecation time and the postoperative hospital stay separately. RESULTS: The first postoperative exhaust time and the first postoperative defecation time in the EA group were earlier than the conventional treatment group (P<0.05), the postoperative hospital stay was shorter than the conventional treatment group (P<0.05), and the rate of wound pain in the postoperative standing was lower than the conventional treatment group (P<0.05). EA expectation had no obvious correlation with the clinical therapeutic effect (P>0.05). CONCLUSION: EA can relieve postoperative ileus symptoms, alleviate pain and shorten hospital stay in the patients after laparotomy for gastrointestinal cancer.

BACKGROUND: Pyogenic arthritis, pyoderma gangrenosum, and acne (PAPA) syndrome is a rare autosomal dominant genetic disease characterized by severe autoimmune inflammation, caused by mutations in the PSTPIP1 gene. Due to PAPA heterogeneous clinical manifestation, misdiagnosis or delayed diagnoses are difficult to avoid. With the use of whole-exome sequencing, we identified a missense mutation in the PSTPIP1 gene in a Chinese family. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of PAPA reported in China. CASE SUMMARY: A 9-year-old boy suffered from recurrent aseptic pyogenic arthritis triggered by minor trauma or few obvious predisposing causes for more than 3 years. Pyogenic arthritis occurred every 3-5 mo, affecting his knees, elbows, and ankle joints. Treatments, such as glucocorticoids, antibiotics, even surgeries could alleviate joints pain and swelling to some extent but could not inhibit the recurrence of arthritis. Similar symptoms were present in his younger brother but not in his parents. According to the whole-exome sequencing, a missense mutation in exon 11 of the PSTPIP1 gene (c.748G>C; p.E250Q) was detected in the boy, his younger brother and his father. Taking into account the similar phenotypic features with PAPA syndrome reported previously, we confirmed a diagnosis of PAPA syndrome for the family. CONCLUSION: In this case, a missense mutation (c.748G>C; p.E250Q) in PSTPIP1 gene was identified in a Chinese family with PAPA syndrome. Previous studies emphasize the fact that PAPA syndrome is hard to diagnose just through the clinical manifestations owing to its heterogeneous expression. Genetic testing is an effectual auxiliary diagnostic method, especially in the early stages of pyogenic arthritis. Only if we have a deep understanding and rich experience of this rare disease can we make a prompt diagnosis, develop the best clinical treatment plan, and give good fertility guidance.

Estrogen and estrogen receptor (ER)-regulated gene transcriptional events have been well known to be involved in ER-positive breast carcinogenesis. Meanwhile, circular RNAs (circRNAs) are emerging as a new family of functional non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) with implications in a variety of pathological processes, such as cancer. However, the estrogen-regulated circRNA program and the function of such program remain uncharacterized. Methods: CircRNA sequencing (circRNA-seq) was performed to identify circRNAs induced by estrogen, and cell proliferation, colony formation, wound healing, transwell and tumor xenograft experiments were applied to examine the function of estrogen-induced circRNA, circPGR. RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) and ceRNA network analysis wereperformed to identify circPGR's target genes and the microRNA (miRNA) bound to circPGR. Anti-sense oligonucleotide (ASO) was used to assess circPGR's effects on ER-positive breast cancer cell growth. Results: Genome-wide circRNA profiling by circRNA sequencing (circRNA-seq) revealed that a large number of circRNAs were induced by estrogen, and further functional screening for the several circRNAs originated from PGR revealed that one of them, which we named as circPGR, was required for ER-positive breast cancer cell growth and tumorigenesis. CircPGR was found to be localized in the cytosol of cells and functioned as a competing endogenous RNA (ceRNA) to sponge miR-301a-5p to regulate the expression of multiple cell cycle genes. The clinical relevance of circPGR was underscored by its high and specific expression in ER-positive breast cancer cell lines and clinical breast cancer tissue samples. Accordingly, anti-sense oligonucleotide (ASO) targeting circPGR was proven to be effective in suppressing ER-positive breast cancer cell growth. Conclusions: These findings reveled that, besides the well-known messenger RNA (mRNA), microRNA (miRNA), long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) and enhancer RNA (eRNA) programs, estrogen also induced a circRNA program, and exemplified by circPGR, these estrogen-induced circRNAs were required for ER-positive breast cancer cell growth, providing a new class of therapeutic targets for ER-positive breast cancer.

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the rules for acupoint selection of acupuncture and moxibustion in domestic clinical treatment of perimenopausal syndrome based on data mining technology in modern times. METHODS: The relevant literature were retrieved from Chinese Biomedical Literature Database (CBM), China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI) and Wanfang database on this disease treated with clinical acupuncture and moxibustion in China from 1978 to 2013. The database of acupuncture-moxibustion prescription was set up. The relevant regulations of data mining technology were used to analyze the rules for acupoint selection. RESULTS: Totally, 211 papers, 254 acupuncture-moxibustion prescriptions and 130 acupoints were included. The total frequency of acupoints application was 2193 times, with 14 meridians involved. The utilization of the acupoints in the lower limbs and on the back were 33.0% (723/2193) and 23.8% (521/2193) and those of yin and yang meridians were 51.8% (1136/2193) and 44.0% (965/2193), respectively. The utilization of the specific acupoints accounted for 88.7% (1946/2193). CONCLUSION: In clinical treatment of perimenopausal syndrome with acupuncture and moxibustion in modern times, the acupoint selection from involved meridians is the basis, associated with multiple methods of acupoint combination; yin and yang meridians are equally important and the specific acupoints are considered particularly critical in application.
