【Abstract】 Compulsory isolation is the main method of drug rehabilitation in China.Key to this method's success is not only physical rehabilitation but,more importantly,removing "addictedness".Compulsory isolation drug rehabilitation is associated with a high relapse rate,owing to the limitations of the work functions of the compulsory isolation agencies,the special role of police officers,and limitations in the practices of the related agencies,as well as the incompleteness of the follow-up care system.Our study explored a method of localized group therapy that integrates multiple techniques and modules.The high-dose,systematic group therapy was performed on a target population to improve efficacy and reduce relapse.Our study also provides evidence of the establishment of a scientific and effective drug rehabilitation model.

【Abstract】 Background Mental disorders are often comorbidities with alcohol use disorders. At present,there are few reports on the influencing factors of this phenomenon, and the conclusions are inconsistent. Clinicians pay more attention to the diagnosis of mental disorders and ignore the existence of comorbidity. Comorbidity are often missed. Objective To investigate the prevalence of alcohol use disorder (AUD) and associated factors among inpatients with mental disorders.Methods We enrolled 710 inpatients with mental disorders from Heibei Mental Health Center,from October 10 to October 17,2016.We employed the diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders-fifth edition (DSM-5) to assess the types of mental disorders,and according to the results,assigned 171 with AUD and 539 without to the comorbidity group and non-comorbidity group,respectively.We used a self-developed baseline questionnaire to collect their baseline data 〔including sex,age,marital status,education,living style,family relationship,occupation,pre illness personality,alcohol family history,diagnosis,risk assessment (such as impulsive,outward,self injury,suicide)〕.Results The prevalence of AUD in inpatients with schizophrenia spectrum disorders,depressive disorders,bipolar and related disorders,and other types of mental disorders was 19.6% (59 cases),27.2% (44 cases),34.5% (51 cases),17.2% (17 cases),respectively.Inpatients with AUD and those without showed significant differences in the distribution of sex,status of family relations,occupation,family history of alcoholism,distribution of mental disorders and the proportion of impulsiveness (P<0.05).Multivariate Logistic regression analysis showed that male 〔OR=7.57,95%CI (4.63,12.37)〕,inharmonious family relationship 〔OR=2.35,95%CI (1.36,4.08)〕,unemployed 〔OR=3.75,95%CI (1.98,7.10)〕,depressive disorders 〔OR=2.81,95%CI (1.40,5.63)〕and risk of impulse-control disorders 〔OR=1.72,95%CI (1.12,2.65)〕were the associated factors for the prevalence of AUD in inpatients with mental disorders (P<0.05).Conclusion The prevalence of AUD is high in inpatients with mental disorders.Male,inharmonious family relationship,unemployed,depressive disorders and risk of impulse-control disorders may be the factors associated with it.

【Abstract】 Background In December 2004, the project “central subsidy for local management and treatment of severe mental illness” (also known as “686” project) was officially launched. Five hospitals in Hebei, including Hebei Mental Health Center have actively carried out the special work of “unlocking treatment” in Hebei Province, from which hundreds of patients with severe mental illness benefited. Objective To explore the relationship between medication adherence and social support among locked schizophrenia patients after receiving unlocking treatment,providing a theoretical basis for improving the medication adherence of this population. Methods This follow-up survey was conducted from October to November 2016. The participants were those locked schizophrenia patients in Hebei Province who received unlocking treatment,a therapy program by 5 hospitals (Hebei Mental Health Center,Huanghua Anding Hospital,Hengshui Jingda Mental Rehabilitation Hospital,Zhangjiakou Shalingzi Hospital and Hengshui Mental Hospital) between November 2006 and March 2012. The status of medication adherence and social support was surveyed by Data of Locked Schizophrenia Patients Receiving Unlocking Treatment Questionnaire,Social Support Rating Scale(SSRS),and Medication Adherence Rating Scale. Results A total of 87 cases were included. The mean total scores of SSRS of them were much lower than those of the national norms 〔 (24.0±4.8) vs (34.6±3.7)〕 (t=-20.628,P<0.01).  The medication adherence differed significantly by prevalence of receiving re-locking treatment(P<0.05),but not by sex,age,educational level,marital status,prevalence of somatic disease,prevalence of enjoying the minimum living guarantee,methods for paying the medical expenses(P>0.05).The prevalence of having good medication adherence was (59±40) %. The medication adherence was positively correlated with the scores of subjective support and objective support and total scores of SSRS(rs=0.328,P=0.002;rs=0.351,P=0.001;rs=0.392,P<0.001),but showed no correlation with utilization of support(rs=0.204,P=0.058). Conclusion After receiving unlocking treatment,locked schizophrenia patients showed an significantly increased medication adherence,and social support is a contributing factor involved in the process.

【Abstract】 Background Chronic heart failure (CHF) is the terminal stage of all cardiovascular diseases,and its incidence,hospitalization rate and mortality rate increased gradually.Compared with traditional diuretics,tolvaptan has less effect on electrolyte balance,which in turn can achieve better therapeutic effects,but there is also a risk of elevating plasma osmotic pressure.Objective To investigate the predictive effect of elevated plasma osmotic pressure (POP) induced by tolvaptan on the prognosis of patients with CHF.Methods We enrolled 83 patients with CHF from Department of Cardiology,the Affiliated Hospital of Southwest Medical University from January 2015 to January 2017.All of them received combination treatment with tolvaptan based on their own conditions and an outpatient follow-up of 12-months (started since the initiating of the standardized treatment).We collected their clinical data,laboratory findings and echocardiographic results.Kaplan-Meier method was used to perform the survival analysis.Univariate and multivariate Cox proportional hazard models were adopted to investigate the factors affecting the prognosis of these patients and the values of them were examined by ROC analysis.Results Except for 6 drop outs,other 77 completed the follow-up.Among them,25 with endpoint events and 52 without were found with poor prognosis,good prognosis,respectively.The 2-,4-,and 6-month survival rates for them were 93.8%,84.2%,77.0%,respectively.The analysis with multivariate Cox proportional hazard models identified that troponin T (cTnT)〔RR=1.373,95%CI(1.005,1.876)〕,left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) 〔RR=1.463,95%CI(1.036,2.066)〕,N-terminal brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) 〔RR=1.051,95%CI(1.015,1.166)〕,increased POP 〔RR=1.638,95%CI(1.206,2.224)〕were independent factors for the prognosis of CHF patients with tolvaptan treatment (P<0.05).For predicting the prognosis of CHF treated by tolvaptan,the area under the ROC curve (AUC) of cTnT,LVEF,NT-proBNP,increased POP,
NT-proBNP combined with increased POP was 0.74,0.67,0.80,0.83,0.87,respectively.NT-proBNP combined with POP had a larger AUC than NT-proBNP (Z=2.706,P=0.048) and POP (Z=3.124,P=0.032) alone.Conclusion cTnT,LVEF,
NT-proBNP and increased POP could independently predict the prognosis of patients with CHF treated by tolvaptan,in particular,NT-proBNP combined with increased POP has a higher predictive value.

【Abstract】 Background In recent years,the score of model for end-stage liver disease (MELD) which explores high-risk factors of the incidence of complication and mortality after liver transplantation has attracted a lot of attention. Most studies focus on the effect of preoperative conditions on postoperative recovery at present.In this study,we investigated the effect of preoperative conditions on the changes of MELD score after liver transplantation and provided new ideas for the recovery of recipients after transplantation.Objective To investigate the effects of the preoperative conditions of donors after cardiac death (DCD) on MELD scores after liver transplantation.Methods A total of 25 DCD liver transplantation cases in the Institute of Organ Transplantation,Tongji Hospital,Tongji Medical College,Huazhong University of Science and Technology were retrospectively selected from September 2013 to September 2015.Data on donor sex,age,duration of ICU treatment,preoperative serum indices 〔alanine aminotransferase (ALT),aspartate aminotransferase (AST),direct bilirubin (DBiL),total bilirubin (TBiL),white blood cell count (WBC),and hemoglobin (Hb) 〕,and the MELD scores of recipients before and after transplantation were collected and analyzed.Results The decreases in the postoperative MELD scores of male (n=19) and female (n=6) donors were(2.80±1.32)% and (1.40±0.66)%,and the difference was significant(t=2.476,P=0.021).There were 15 donors <45 years old and 10 donors ≥45 years old;the decreases in the postoperative MELD scores of the two groups were(2.73±1.26)% and (2.07±1.40)%,and were not significantly different between groups
(t=-1.210,P=0.242).Regarding the duration of ICU treatment,there were 3 cases <5 d,14 cases 5-10 d and 8 cases >10 d;the decreases in the postoperative MELD scores of the three groups were (2.30±1.38)%,(2.85±0.85)% and(2.94±1.76)%,and were not significantly different among groups (F=0.957,P=0.516).There was no linear correlation between the decreases in the postoperative MELD scores of the recipients and the age,duration of ICU treatment,preoperative AST,DBiL,WBC and Hb of the donors,as well as the preoperative MELD scores of the recipients (r=-0.344,P=0.093;r=-0.294,P=0.154;
r=-0.271,P=0.090;r=-0.181,P=0.386;r=-0.310,P=0.096;r=-0.205,P=0.325;r=-0.219,P=0.294).The preoperative ALT and TBiL levels of the donors negatively correlated with the decreases in the postoperative MELD scores of the recipients (r=-0.301,P=0.044;r=-0.372,P=0.012).Linear regression analysis showed that the preoperative levels of ALT,AST and TBiL of the donors correlated with the decreases in the postoperative MELD scores of the recipients (P<0.05).Conclusion The higher levels of ALT,AST and TBiL before transplantation,the lower decreases in the postoperative MELD scores of recipients,and the slower recovery of recipients.A high level of ALT,AST or TBiL is the main risk factor for complications in liver transplantation.

【Abstract】 Background Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a common endocrine and metabolic disorder  characterized by hyperglycemia. Long-term hyperglycemia can cause cognitive impairment,including memory and learning impairment, orientation impairment,executive impairment and so on. Compared with common complications of T2DM,there is less research on the complications of central nervous system. Objective To observe the effect of simvastatin on learning and memory capacity in rats with T2DM and to determine the role of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR)/p70 ribosomal protein S6 kinase (p70S6K) pathway in the improvement in cognitive function induced by simvastatin.Methods In September 2016,120 healthy male Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats were divided into the control group,diabetic group and simvastatin group (n=40,respectively).T2DM rat models were successfully established in the diabetic group (n=38) and the simvastatin group (n=37) by intraperitoneal injection of streptozotocin.Rats in the simvastatin group were given simvastatin intragastrically.Rats in the control group and diabetic group were administered an equal volume of 0.9% sodium chloride solution intragastrically.After 32 weeks of feeding,the rats were subjected to a Morris water maze test to evaluate memory capacity.Changes in the hippocampal formation in each group were observed under a microscope.Western blotting was performed to analyze the expression of mTOR,p70S6K,tau,malondialdehyde (MDA),and glutathione (GSH) protein.Results Compared with the control group,rats in the diabetic group and simvastatin group were characterized by higher fasting blood glucose and lower body weight (P<0.01).The escape latencies of rats in the diabetic and simvastatin groups were longer on the 2nd,3rd,4th,and 5th day than in the control group (P<0.05);while the escape latencies on the 2nd,3rd,4th,and 5th days in the simvastatin group were shorter than those in the diabetic group (P<0.05).Microscopic observations showed that hippocampal neurons in the diabetic group were reduced,showed disordered arrangement,membrane folds,missing nuclei,and reduced organelles;while the hippocampal neurons in the simvastatin group were approximately normal in structure and slightly reduced in number.The p-mTOR/mTOR,p-p70S6K/p70S6K,and p-tau/t-tau in the diabetic and simvastatin groups were significantly higher than those in the control group (P<0.01);while these levels in the simvastatin group were lower than those in the diabetic group (P<0.01).The MDA/β-actin and GSH/β-actin in the diabetic group and simvastatin group were significantly higher than those in the control group (P<0.01);while these levels in the simvastatin group were lower than those in the diabetic group (P<0.01).Conclusion The improvement in cognitive function in T2DM rats administered simvastatin may be related to inhibition of the mTOR/p70S6K signaling pathway and reduced generation of oxidative stress.

【Abstract】 Background The development of integrated medical and nursing care in China frequently encounters bottlenecks,and numerous problems need to be urgently solved. Typically,the demand of a multi-stage,multi-layered and diversified medical and nursing care for the elderly is the source issue that affects institutional development and service implementation. Therefore,targeting and analyzing the demand can guarantee that integrated medical and nursing care will develop healthily,improve supply-demand balance,and optimize the allocation of resources.Objective To investigate the awareness,demand and influencing factors of integrated medical and nursing care among community-dwelling elderly in Luzhou City,so as to provide evidence for the development of delivery modes of this kind of care.Methods From February to May 2018,a cross-sectional survey was conducted in Luzhou City among a convenience sample of 650 community-dwelling elderly individuals who were eligible for the study.The Self-developed General Demographic Questionnaire and Integrated Medical and Nursing Care Questionnaire,Chinese version of the Comprehensive Frailty Assessment Instrument (CFAI),Chinese version of the Zung Self-Rating Depression Scale (SDS),and Social Support Rating Scale (SSRS) were adopted for the survey.Based on the framework of Andersen's behavioral model,3 Logistic regression models (named as model Ⅰ,model Ⅱ,model Ⅲ) incorporated with predisposing,enabling and need factors (obtained from the survey results),respectively,were established and their estimated probability and goodness of fit were assessed by Hosmer-Lemeshow test.Binary Logistic regression analysis was performed to investigate the influencing factors of community-dwelling elderly' needs for integrated medical and nursing care.Results A total of 650 sets of questionnaires were distributed,and 627 responsive ones were collected,with a response rate of 96.5%.Among the 627 respondents,340 (54.2%) were aware of the integrated medical and nursing care,and 416 (66.3%) demanded for this kind of care.Compared with model Ⅰ,the -2 log likelihood (-2LL) values in models Ⅱ and Ⅲ were smaller,while Cox&Snell R2 and Nagelkerke R2 were greater.Moreover,the -2LL of model Ⅲ was smaller,while Cox&Snell R2 and Nagelkerke R2 were greater compared with model Ⅱ,suggesting that model Ⅲ displayed the best goodness of fit to the sample.Additionally,binary Logistic regression analysis indicated that,age〔OR=1.692,95%CI (1.118,2.560)〕,number of children 〔OR=0.571,95%CI (0.407,0.800)〕,convenience of seeking healthcare〔OR=2.931,95%CI (2.117,4.058)〕,social support degree 〔OR=0.455,95%CI (0.326,0.635)〕,chronic disease prevalence 〔OR=1.999,95%CI (1.343,2.975)〕,awareness level of integrated medical and nursing care 〔OR=1.719,95%CI (1.222,2.418)〕,frailty degree 〔OR=2.495,95%CI (1.666,3.736)〕,and depression degree 〔OR=1.914,95%CI (1.296,2.827)〕  were the influencing factors of demand for integrated medical and nursing care among the community-dwelling elderly (P<0.05). Conclusion Both the levels of awareness and needs of integrated medical and nursing care among the community-dwelling elderly people in Luzhou are relatively high.As the needs of such care are affected by multiple factors,it is recommended that the government,enterprises and subsequent researchers carry out classification analysis of these factors during the investigation.In addition,the delivery of integrated medical and nursing care should be gradually developed after pilot implementation.

【Abstract】 Background As a serious global health problem, tuberculosis is the ninth cause of death. Tuberculous meningitis (TBM) is one of the most serious tuberculosis, and its current recommended treatment is 2HRZE/10HR. However. about half of patients with TBM were dead or disabled, with severe social harm. Linezolid (LZD) and levofloxacin (LFX) are second-line anti-tuberculosis drugs with strong anti-tuberculosis effect, and both have good blood-brain barrier permeability.Objective To investigate the efficacy and side effects of LZD combined with LFX in the treatment of TBM during the intensive phrase of treatment.Methods  We enrolled 49 cases who were diagnosed as definite,probable or possible TBM and received inpatient treatment from Huzhou Central Hospital from January 2014 to October 2017 and simply randomized them into the experimental group(n=24) and the control group(n=25),receiving the basic anti-TB treatment,basic anti-TB treatment combined with LZD and LFX,respectively.Examination of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) was performed at the baseline and end of the 1st,2nd,4th,8th weeks of treatment,white blood cell count (WBC),chloride and proteins,and glucose ratio (CSF/serum) were analyzed.The death,neurological sequelae and side effects associated with treatment were recorde between two groups at the end of the 8th week of treatment.Results During the treatment period,the WBC and proteins decreased significantly but glucose ratio and chloride increased successively in the experimental group(P<0.05).After the completion of 8-week treatment,the mortality rate and incidence of neurological sequelae were 8.0% (2/25),16.0% (4/24),respectively in the control group,and 4.2% (1/24),4.2% (1/24) respectively in the experimental group,indicating the two had similar rates of the death and neurological sequelae (χ2=1.203,P=0.273).There was no significant difference in the incidence of adverse reactions between the two groups 〔56.0%(14/25) vs 66.7%(16/24),χ2=0.587,P=0.444).Adverse reactionss associated with treatment occurred in both groups were not serious,and they were all relieved after the treatment was modified.Conclusion  In the intensive phrase of treatment for TBM,basic anti-TB treatment combined with LZD and LFX can improve the outcome by promoting the recovery of CSF.

【Abstract】 Background Botulinum toxin has been used to treat axillary osmidrosis for a long time with relatively good efficacy and less toxic side effects.However,no one can give a unified standard for botulinum toxin preparation,including manufacturers.Objective To investigate the difference in efficacy of botulinum toxin type-A (BTX-A) at two different dilutions for the treatment of bromhidrosis.Methods This study included 120 outpatients with bromhidrosis treated at Shenzhen Hospital of Southern Medical University from January 2014 to June 2017,who were randomly divided via a random number table into group A (n=59) and group B (n=61).In group A,BTX-A was diluted with 0.9% sodium chloride solution to 50 U/1 ml,
and in group B,BTX-A was diluted with 0.9% sodium chloride solution to 50 U/2 ml,to form an intravenous injection-induced skin rash.The patients were followed-up for 2 weeks after injection,and the onset time and treatment effects were recorded.Results During the follow-up period,some patients experienced symptom relief (onset) as early as the 3rd day after BTX-A injection,and on the 14th day,all patients experienced onset.The average onset time was (7.3±2.0) days in group A,and (6.5±2.0) days in group B.The difference was statistically significant (t=2.029,P=0.045).In group A,therapy was ineffective in 8 patients,effective in 26 patients,and markedly effective in 25 patients.In group B,therapy was ineffective in 5 patients,effective in 29 patients,and markedly effective in 27 patients.There was no significant difference in the treatment effect between the two groups (u=-0.492,P=0.622).Conclusion Two different dilutions of BTX-A had similar effects on bromhidrosis,however,patients in the lower concentration group experienced faster symptom relief.
