BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to analyze the risk factors for vasovagal reaction (VVR) in manual femoral sheath removal after percutaneous coronary intervention and to discuss methods for the prevention and control of VVR. METHODS: The data of 455 patients who underwent percutaneous intervention in four interventional centers during a period of 30 months were retrospectively analyzed. Patients were divided into a VVR group and a control group according to whether VVR developed. The clinical data of all patients were analyzed using univariate and multivariate logistic regression analysis to examine VVR -related factors. RESULTS: A total of 455 patients underwent 464 manual femoral sheath removal operations, of whom 12 developed VVR (2.59%). Of these 12 VVR patients, one had VVR during and 11 had VVR after the intervention. There were no statistically significant differences between the two groups in age, body mass index, gender, time of sheath removal, proportions of patients with hypertension, diabetes, and hyperlipemia, laboratory values of hemoglobin a1c, and ejection fraction (p > 0.05). Compared with the control group, use of nitrates was the only risk factor with a significant correlation with VVR (p = 0.012). CONCLUSION: In manual femoral sheath removal, the use of nitrates is the most important risk factor for the occurrence of VVR after percutaneous intervention.

BACKGROUND: To investigate the expression and function of RSK4, MMP-9 and CD44 in primary clear cell renal cell carcinoma (primary ccRCC) and metastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma (metastatic ccRCC), as well as the correlation with clinicopathological features of patients. METHOD: The expression levels of RSK4, CD44 and MMP-9 in 52 primary ccRCC samples and 48 metastatic ccRCC samples were detected by immunohistochemistry, and the relationship between RSK4, CD44 and MMP-9 expression and clinicopathological features as well as prognosis of metastatic ccRCC patients was statistically analysed. Ectopic RSK4 expression in ccRCC cell lines was performed to determine its effect on cell cycle regulation, tumour invasiveness, and metastatic capability. RESULTS: The positive rates of RSK4, MMP-9 and CD44 expression in metastatic ccRCC tissues were 75, 68.75 and 91.7%, respectively, while the rates in primary ccRCC tissues were 44.2, 34.6 and 69.2%, respectively. Thus, the positive rates in metastatic ccRCC were higher than those in primary ccRCC (PRSK4 = 0. 002; PMMP-9 = 0. 002; PCD44 = 0. 001). However, the expression of RSK4, CD44 and MMP-9 was unrelated to age, gender, or metastatic sites (P > 0.05) but was related to WHO/ISUP nucleolar grade (PRSK4 = 0.019; PCD44 = 0.026; PMMP-9 = 0.049). In metastatic ccRCC, expression among the three proteins showed a positive correlation (P = 0.008). Moreover, expression between RSK4 and CD44 (P = 0.019) and MMP-9 and CD44 (P = 0.05) also showed positive correlations, whereas RSK4 and MMP-9 showed no significant correlation (P = 1.00). Molecular studies showed that overexpression of RSK4 could enhance the invasive and migratory abilities of ccRCC cell lines through the regulation of CD44 and MMP-9 expression and vice versa. CONCLUSIONS: The overexpression of RSK4, MMP-9 and CD44 is associated with the invasion and metastasis of ccRCC, indicating that they could be potential prognostic factors and serve as new potential therapeutic targets for ccRCC.

Triple-negative breast carcinoma (TNBC) is a subtype of breast carcinoma defined by negativity for estrogen receptor (ER) or progesterone receptor (PR) by immunohistochemical analysis and negativity for human epidermal growth factor receptor (Her2) by immunohistochemistry or in situ hybridization. TNBC is clinically marked by its high aggressiveness, particularly poor outcomes including a low survival rate, and the lack of specific and effective treatments. Therefore, new potential targets for the treatment of TNBC must be identified. This review summarizes recent evidence supporting novel targets and possible therapeutic regimens in the treatment of TNBC.

Schiff base, an important family of reaction in click chemistry, has received significant attention in the formation of self-healing hydrogels in recent years. Schiff base reversibly reacts even in mild conditions, which allows hydrogels with self-healing ability to recover their structures and functions after damages. Moreover, pH-sensitivity of the Schiff base offers the hydrogels response to biologically relevant stimuli. Different types of Schiff base can provide the hydrogels with tunable mechanical properties and chemical stabilities. In this review, we summarized the design and preparation of hydrogels based on various types of Schiff base linkages, as well as the biomedical applications of hydrogels in drug delivery, tissue regeneration, wound healing, tissue adhesives, bioprinting, and biosensors.

Gold nanoparticles having a rod-like morphology are regularly investigated as potential nano-therapeutic materials owing to their interesting optical properties, facile surface modification, tunable aspect ratios, and low cytotoxicity. Gold nanorods are historically prepared starting from HAuCl4 in the presence of ascorbic acid, silver nitrate, and the growth directing surfactant, cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB). While CTAB drives a rod-like morphology, it is known to be cytotoxic. This inherent toxicity is often addressed by removing or masking the native CTAB surfactant present on the nanorod surface. In the current study we have investigated a less toxic alternative surfactant, dodecylethyldimethylammonium bromide (C12EDMAB), as a possible growth-directing agent. Monodisperse gold nanorods having various lengths have been grown in the presence of C12EDMAB. SEM data suggests that the quantity of C12EDMAB on the rod's surface is much higher than that of CTAB. Toxicity assays were performed on HEp-2 and A549 cells showing lower toxicity at select concentrations for C12EDMAB coated rods.

Three new solid complexes have been synthesized by the reaction of rare earth(III) nitrate with the first ligand curcumin (HL) and the second ligand 1,10-phenanthroline-5,6-dione (L') in alcohol solution (pH=6.5-7.0). The composition of the complexes has been characterized by elemental analysis, molar conductivity, thermogravimetric analysis, IR, UV-vis methods. The results reveal that beta-diketone group of the first ligand to coordinates with rare earth ions in bidentate mode after deprotonated. But the second ligand uses its two N atoms coordinates with rare earth ions in bidentate mode. The general formula of the complexes is REL(3)L' (RE=Sm, Eu, Dy). The results of antibacterial activity indicated that the complexes have excellent antibacterial ability for the testing bacterium than that of curcumin. The result of agarose gel electrophoresis suggested that the complex of SmL(3)L' can cleave the plasmid DNA at physiological pH and temperature. And it was found that the cleavage process of plasmid DNA was sensitive to pH, however, adding radical scavengers almost had no effect on the DNA cleavage reaction, therefore, the cleavage of DNA by SmL(3)L' does not produce diffusible hydroxyl radicals via the Fenton reaction.
