LI Xiang,LI Xin-zhi.Department of Orthopaedics,Renhe Hospital,China Three Gorges University,Yichang 443001,China

    Abstract  The treatment of diseases caused by lumbar disc degeneration(LDD)has always been subject to much attention.At present,there are mainly conservative treatment and surgical treatment,but none of them can stop or reverse the process of disc degeneration.In recent years,gene therapy for LDD has been receiving much attention.Gene therapy involves the screening of the target gene and target cell,transfer of the therapeutic gene to the recipient cells using appropriate vector,regulation of the expression of target genes so as to achieve the purpose of the recipient cells synthesizing the RNA and expressing proteins in a continuous fashion.Modifying intradiscal gene expression via gene therapy is perhaps the best method for the lumbar disc degenerative diseases in the near future.

YANG Hong-xiaMI Shu-huaJIA Shu-jieet al.Department of Vip ClinicBeijing Anzhen Hospital Affiliated to Capital Medical University,Beijing 100029,China

    Abstract  Objective  To explore the impacts of the metabolic syndrome on pulse wave velocity of the elderly patients with primary hypertension.Methods  From October 2011 to Febrary 2013,147 elderly patients with primary hypertension were admitted to department of Vip clinicBeijing Anzhen Hospital,of these patients,80 patients had metabolic syndrome,67 patients had not metabolic syndrome.The height,weight,body mass index(BMI),waist circumference,heart rate,blood pressure,and levels of fasting plasma glucose,TG,TC,HDL-C and LDL-C were measured or calculated. The carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity(C-FPWV) was used to evaluate aortic elasticity using automatic pulse wave velocity(PWV) system.Results  There was no statistically significant difference in age,gender,history of primary hypertension,heart rate,systolic blood pressure(SBP),diastolic blood pressure(DBP),TC and LDL-C levels between two groups(P0.05).There were statistically significant differences in BMI,waist circumference,fasting blood glucose,TGHDL-C levels,and C-FPWV(P0.05).Waist circumference(r=0.32,P=0.00),fasting plasma glucose level(r=0.12,P=0.03),TG level(r=0.26,P=0.26) were positively correlated with C-FPWV.BMI(r=0.18,P=0.45) and HDL-C level(r=0.09,P=0.09) did not have linear correlation with C-FPWV.Multiple linear regression analysis results showed that the waist circumference has regression relationship with C-FPWV(R2=0.39,P0.05).Conclusion  C-FPWV is positively correlated with waist circumference,metabolic syndrome can degenerate large artery elasticity in elderly patients with essential hypertension.

QIN Yang,XU Tong-tong,LV Xiang-wei.Department of Internal Medicine Teaching and Research,Affiliated Hospital of Guilin Medical College,Guilin 541001,China

    Abstract  Objective  To explore the significance of the levels change of serum leptin and adiponectin before and after treatment in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF).Methods  62 CHF patients admitted to the Department of Cardiac Internal Medicine,VIP,Affiliated Hospital of Guilin Medical College from September 2011 to May 2012 were selected as observation group (17 cases of cardiac function levels ,26 cases of level and 19 cases of level ).Another 40 healthy people were selected as control group.Body mass index (BMI),blood lipid,blood pressure levels were recorded in the two groups.The plasma leptin,adiponectin,brain natriuretic peptide (BNP),IL-6,LVEF and LVEDd were also detected in the two groups before and after treatment.Results  The BMI,TG,TC,HDL-C,LDL-C,systolic pressure and diastolic pressure between control group and observation group showed no statistically significant difference (P0.05).In terms of serum leptin,adiponectin,BNP,IL-6 and LVEDd,the patients with cardiac function level ,level and level were significantly higher than the control group,and patients of level and level were significantly higher than patients of level ,and patients of level were significantly higher than patients of level .When it came to LVEF,the former were significantly lower than the latter ones (P0.05).After treatment,the levels of serum leptin,adiponectin,BNP,IL-6 and LVEDd were significantly reduced,but LVEF was significantly increased (P0.05).Conclusion  The level of serum leptin,adiponectin of patients with CHF is higher than healthy people,serum leptin and adiponectin may be involved in the pathogenesis and development of chronic heart failure,and the monitoring of them may be helpful for the evaluation and treatment of heart failure.

HUANG Jian,HUANG Yun-zhu,YANG Guo-zhen,et al.Department of Biochemical Science,Affiliated Hospital of Guiyang Medical University,Guiyang 550004,China

    Abstract  Objective  To study the association of ApoA5 gene-1131TC and 56 CG polymorphism with type2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and lipid spectrum in Han People of Guizhou.Methods  192 T2DM unrelated patients received by the Affiliated Hospital of Guiyang Medical College during the period from March 2012 to March 2013 were selected as the T2DM group while 206 people with normal level of blood lipid and blood sugar once taking physical examination in our hospital during the same period as the control group.In order to examine the genotype of ApoA5-1131TC and 56CG,the technology of agarose gel-electrophoresis combined with polymerase chain reaction/restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) was adopted.The frequency distribution of the allelic genes was also recorded while the level of blood lipid and blood sugar were examined with automatic chemistry analyzer.Results  The distribution of genotype of ApoA5-1131TC in the control group (χ2=0.477,P=0.489) and T2DM group (χ2=1.597,P=0.206) has been found to conform to the Hardy-Weinberg law of genetic equilibrium and was also representative of the group.The genotype and allele frequency of the two groups showed statistically significant difference (P0.05).The 1131C type carriers (TC+CC) had an 1.965 times increased risk of T2DM compared with TT genotype (OR=1.965) and had a significant increase in TG levels compared with non-C carriers (TT) (P0.05).ApoA5 56CG was in exon2 of ApoA5,and only CC genotype was detected.Conclusion  ApoA5-1131TC polymorphism is associated with the risk of T2DM in Han People of Guizhou.C allele has a significantly increased T2DM risk and is associated with the increased serum TG levels.We do not observe ApoA5 gene 56CG polymorphism.

XU Li-ping,LI Jia,FANG Lin.Department of General Surgery,Ningbo First Hospital,Ningbo 315010China

    Abstract  Objective  To investigate the expression pattern of miR-26b in breast cancer and the impact of miR-26b on the proliferation of MD-MBA-231 breast cancer cells,and search for its target gene.Methods  A total of 38 female patients with breast cancer treated with surgery in the Tenth Peoples Hospital of Tongji University in Shanghai from January 2010 to May 2012 were enrolled. The cancer tissue and normal adjacent breast tissue were obtained. Realtime fluorescence quantitative PCR (RT-PCR) was performed to quantify the expression of miR-26b in breast cancer and normal breast specimens. MTT assay was employed to characterize the function of miR-26b in the proliferation of breast cancer cells. The breast cancer cells were treated with 50 nmol/L miR-26b mimic,or 100 nmol/L miR-26b mimic,or miRNA,or liposome,namely the 50 nmol/L miR-26b treatment group,the 100 nmol/L miR-26b treatment group,the negative control group and the blank control group. The proliferation rates in each group were tested after 24 h,48 h,72 h,and 96 h. Target prediction was performed to determine the target gene of miR-26b using the software TargetScan;and the
