【Abstract】 The coronary microvascular system refers to arteries with an inner diameter of less than 0.5 mm,and its number of vessels accounts for 95% of the entire coronary artery tree.The viewpoint that coronary microvascular disease(CMVD)causes angina pectoris in patients has attracted more and more attention.With the continuous development of the bio-psycho-social medical model and the proposal of psycho-cardiology,the adverse effects of psychological disorders on cardiovascular diseases are gradually recognized.This article introduces the definition,epidemiology,pathogenesis and risk factors of CMVD and depression,and summarizes their common pathogenesis and risk factors.It is found that there is a correlation between depression and CMVD,and it is believed that the effective and reasonable treatment of depression can improve the condition of CMVD,and then improve patients' quality of life and prognosis.Therefore,the study of depression and CMVD should be paid more attention by clinicians.

【Abstract】 Background Prehospital delay in seeking treatment in patients with acute myocardial infarction(AMI)is a vital factor on patients outcome.However,most studies focus on demographic factors,clinical symptoms and display of AMI,and cognitive aspects,and there is a lack of systematic research on social-psychological factors.As a common psychological factor,anxiety and its effects over AMI patient's prehospital time(PHT)has not yet been reported.Objective Our study was to assess the impact of anxiety on PHT of AMI patients in order to provide a basis for the development of prehospital delay intervention strategies for anxiety-related AMI patients.Methods In this multi-centered,cross-sectional observational study,we enrolled 265 patients diagnosed with AMI from four hospitals(Tongji Hospital of Tongji University,Tenth People's Hospital of Tongji University,Yangpu Hospital Tongji University,People's Liberation Army No.411 Hospital)in Shanghai from April 2016 to February 2017.Data collection included demographic status,symptoms of AMI onset,decision time,transit time,PHT(the time of symptom onset to the arrival at hospital door).Anxiety was measured with the Generalized Anxiety Disorder-7(GAD-7).Results The mean PHT of 265 patients was 150.0(70.0,501.0)min.The results of anxiety assessment showed that a total of 104 patients displayed symptoms of anxiety(mild,n=81; moderate,n=16; severe,n=7).We found that patients with anxiety were more likely to display sign of depression,cardiac denial and fear of death(P<0.05).The incidence of feeling of death and dizziness in anxious patients was higher than non-anxious patients(P<0.05).There was no significant difference in decision time,transit time and PHT between anxious and non-anxious patients(P>0.05).PHT and decision time in patients with severe anxiety tended to be longer than those with mild anxiety(P<0.05).There was no significant difference in the transit time of patients with different degrees of anxiety(P>0.05).Conclusion Patients with AMI and anxiety are more likely to have depression and cardiac denial.In comparison to patients who are mildly anxious,severely anxious patients with AMI might significantly prolong decision time and PHT,which is more likely to cause the miss of the optimal reperfusion period and affect the prognosis.

【Abstract】 Background Anxiety and depression is common among patients with coronary artery disease(CAD),which protracts the course of disease,affecting the treatment and prognosis,with high rate of missed diagnosis.Clinical characteristics of these patients remain unexplored.Objective To identify the clinical characteristics of CAD patients with anxiety and depression,which can be helpful for early diagnosis.Methods In this single-center cross-sectional study,a total of 131 patients diagnosed with CAD in Tongji Hospital of Tongji University from March to July 2013 were enrolled.General Information Questionnaire,Beck Depression Inventory(BDI),Beck Anxiety Inventory(BAI),Symptom Checklist 90(SCL-90,composed of 10 dimensions,including somatization,obsessive-compulsive symptoms,interpersonal sensitivity,depression,anxiety,hostility,terror,paranoia,psychosis and other symptoms) were distributed and completed by the patients independently.Results A total of 131 questionnaires were distributed,and all were recovered,of which 120 were valid,with an effective response rate of 91.6%.Thirty-nine patients(32.5%) were accompanied by anxiety and/or depression,of which 38(31.7%) had anxiety,seven(5.8%) had depression,and six(5.0%) accompanied by both.In somatization dimension,compared to those without anxiety or depression,the CAD patients with anxiety and/or depression complained more “headaches”“faintness or dizziness”“chest pain” “trouble breathing”“numbness or tingling in parts of your body”“ sense of obstruction in your throat”“feeling weak in parts of your body”“heavy feelings in your arms or legs”(P<0.05).In the dimension of obsessive-compulsive symptoms,the incidence of “unwanted thoughts or ideas that won't leave your head”“feeling difficult in getting things done”“having to check and double check what you do”“difficulty in making decisions”“your mind going blank”“trouble in concentrating”“having to repeat the same actions such as counting,washing”in CAD patients with anxiety and/or depression were higher than those without anxiety and/or depression (P<0.05).In the dimension of interpersonal sensitivity,the incidence of “ blaming others for perfection”“feeling inferior to others”“feeling very nervous about others” and “feeling uncomfortable about eating or drinking in public”in CAD patients with anxiety and/or depression were higher than those without anxiety or depression(P<0.05).In the depression dimension,the prevalence of “loss of sexual interest or pleasure”“thoughts of ending life”“crying easily”“blaming yourself”“feeling lonely”“feeling blue”“worrying too much about things”“feeling no interest in things”“feeling hopeless about the future”“feeling everything is difficult”“feeling of worthlessness”in CAD patients with anxiety and depression was higher than those without anxiety and depression (P<0.05).In anxiety dimension,“nervous or oversensitive”“suddenly scared for no reason”“heart pounding or racing”“feeling tense or keyed up”“feeling so restless you couldn't sit still”“feeling pushed to get things done”were more common in CAD patients with anxiety and/or depression than those CAD patients without anxiety or depression(P<0.05).In the dimension of terror,CAD patients with anxiety and/or depression had higher incidence of “feeling afraid in open spaces or on the street”“feeling afraid to travel on buses,subways or trains”“having to avoid certain things,places or activities”“feeling uneasy in crowds in shopping malls or theatres”“feeling nervous when you are left alone”“feeling afraid you will faint in public”than those CAD patients without anxiety or depression(P<0.05).In paranoid dimension,“feeling that most people cannot be trusted”were more prevalent in CAD patients with anxiety and/or depression than that in those without anxiety or depression(P<0.05).In the psychosis dimension,for CAD patients with anxiety and/or depression,the prevalence of “the idea that someone else can control your thoughts”“feeling lonely even when you are with people”“having thoughts about sex that bother you a lot”“the idea that you should be punished for your sins”“the idea that something serious is wrong with your body”“never feeling close to others personally”were higher than those without anxiety or depression(P<0.05).About other symptoms,CAD patients with anxiety and/or depression suffered more from “poor appetite”“trouble in falling sleep”“thoughts of death or dying”“awakening in the early morning”and“ restless or disturbed sleep”than those CAD patients without anxiety or depression(P<0.05).Conclusion The incidence of CAD patients with comorbid anxiety and depression is high,among whom the somatization disorders are more common and apparent.Besides,the obsessive-compulsive symptoms,interpersonal sensitivity,terror and psychotic symptoms among CAD patients with anxiety and/or depression are marked,as well as sleep disorders.Therefore,the assessment of anxiety and depression should be strengthened in CAD patients with related symptoms.

【Abstract】 Background The prevention and treatment of chronic diseases〔including hyperuricemia(HUA)〕in communities are a kind of comprehensive management for such diseases.Many factors,such as obesity,metabolic disorders,cardiovascular disease,cerebrovascular disease,and chronic kidney disease are associated with the risk of increased HUA.However,previous studies linking obesity to HUA have shown different results.Objective To assess the association between diverse measures of obesity〔body mass index(BMI),waist circumference(WC) and neck circumference(NC)〕and HUA in the elderly in Puxing Community.Methods Elderly(65-99 years old) people(n=4 364) were recruited from the Puxing Community,Pudong New District,Shanghai.All of them participated in the free physical examination delivered by the Puxing Community Health Center during April to June,2015.A cross-sectional survey was used to collected the data concerning BMI,WC and NC,and other factors associated with HUA〔history of smoking and drinking,hypertension,diabetes,levels of uric acid(UA)fasting plasma glucose(FPG),total cholesterol(TC),triacylglycerol(TG),urea,creatinine(Cr),total bilirubin,ALT and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR)〕.They were divided into high sUA group(n=610) and normal UA group(n=3 754) according to the level of UA (UA>420 μmol/L in men and postmenopausal women was defined as the diagnostic criterion for HUA).And personal characteristics of both groups were compared.By BMI,the participants were stratified into underweight,normal weight,overweight,and obesity.On the basis of the quartile of WC,they were assigned to A1(WC<82.2 cm for men,<78.0 cm for women),A2(82.2 cm≤WC<88.5 cm for men,78.0 cm
≤WC<85.0 cm for women),A3(88.5 cm≤WC<94.0 cm for men,85.0 cm≤WC<92.0 cm for women),A4(WC≥94.0 cm
for men,≥92.0 cm for women).They were also divided into 4 groups according to the quartile of NC,B1(NC<35.0 cm for men,<31.0 cm for women),B2(35.0 cm≤NC<37.0 cm for men,31.0 cm≤NC<33.0 cm for women),B3(37.0 cm
≤NC<38.0 cm for men,33.0 cm≤NC<35.0 cm for women),B4(NC≥38.0 cm for men,≥35.0 cm for women).The relationships of HUA prevalence with BMI,WC and NC were analyzed by sex.Multivariable Logistic regression analyses were also performed to investigate the relationships of HUA prevalence with BMI,WC and NC.Results The average age,history of hypertension,BMI,WC,NC,systolic and diastolic blood pressure,UA,TG,urea,SCr,total bilirubin,ALT and eGFR,prevalence of overweight and obesity,abdominal obesity,increased NC,hypertension,and decreased eGFR were significant different between high UA group and normal UA group (all P<0.05).The prevalence of HUA significantly increased with the growth of age,BMI,WC,and NC in both men and women(P<0.05).After adjusting for sex,age,smoking,drinking,TC,TG,total bilirubin,ALT,hypertension,and diabetes,multivariate Logistic regression analyses of the models established with the BMI,WC and NC data showed that BMI,WC and NC were all associated with HUA(P<0.001).The prevalence of HUA increased by 42%,38%,29%,respectively,with every 1-standard deviation(3.4 kg/m2) increase in BMI,every 1-standard deviation(9.5 cm) increase in WC,and every 1-standard deviation(3.3 cm) increase in NC.After further adjusting for WC and NC,multivariable Logistic regression analyses found that BMI was associated with HUA(P<0.05).In addition,male,TG,decreased eGFR,hypertension and diabetes were associated with HUA(P<0.05).Conclusion BMI,WC and NC were all associated with HUA.But after adjusting for the latter two,BMI was found to be associated with HUA.Compared with WC and NC,BMI might have a stronger association with HUA.

【Abstract】 Background Severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) has a rapid progression and high mortality,and early prediction and correct assessment of the severity of acute pancreatitis (AP) are important. At present,the scoring system commonly used in clinical practice is cumbersome and cannot be applied to early evaluation. Studies have shown that pleural effusion(PE) can be a good early predictor of SAP. However,there are few studies on the risk factors of AP complicated with PE. Objective To explore influencing factors of  AP complicated by PE,so as to have a better understanding of risk factors at an early stage,reduce the probability of developing into SAP and improve prognosis.Methods Retrospective analysis was performed on 326 AP inpatients with complete medical records and chest imaging findings in the Department of Gastroenterology of First Affiliated Hospital of Kunming Medical University from January 2013 to December 2017.The patients were divided into PE group and non-PE group according to whether having concurrent PE.The group was further divided into two subgroups according to the length of hospital stay:the subgroup whose hospitalization time was no more than 7 days(including 7 days) and the subgroup whose hospitalization time was longer than 7 days.Discharge diagnosis,complications(hyperlipidemia,hyperglycemia,abdominal effusion,pulmonary infection,liver and kidney injury,pancreatic pseudocyst,and complicated with two or more diseases),hospitalization time,hospitalization expenses,general information〔age,body mass index,gender,etiology,previous history of pancreatitis,smoking history (>2 cigarettes/d,duration >1 year),history of drinking(average daily intake of alcohol >60 g and duration > 5 years)〕 were compared.Laboratory test indicators within 48 h after admission〔worst values:white blood cell count(WBC),neutrophil percentage (NEU),serum albumin (ALB),serum calcium (Ca),fibrinogen (FIB),blood glucose (GLU),C-reactive protein (CRP),amylase (AMY),lipase(LIP)〕,and other data,including 48 h Ranson score,modified CT severe index(MCTSI) score,bedside index for severity in acute pancreatitis(BISAP) score were also compared between PE group and non-PE group.Then multivariate Logistic analysis was used to analyze the influencing factors of AP complicated with PE.Laboratory test indicators and other data between two subgroups were compared.Results Of 326 AP patients,137 were in PE group and 189 in non-PE group.There was statistically significant differences in discharge diagnosis,complications,hospitalization time,hospitalization expenses,gender,history of pancreatitis,WBC,NEU,ALB,Ca,FIB,CRP,AMY,LIP,48 h Ranson score,MCTSI score and BISAP score between PE group and non-PE group(P<0.05).Multivariate Logistic analysis showed that no history of pancreatitis,CRP,MCTSI score and BISAP score were influencing factors of AP complicated with PE(P<0.05).In PE group,ALB and Ca of the subgroup whose hospitalization time was longer than 7 d were lower than those of the subgroup whose hospitalization time was less than or equal to 7 d,and its GLU and 48h Ranson scores were higher than those of the subgroup whose hospitalization time less than or equal to 7 d(P<0.05).In non-PE group,the CRP and MCTSI scores of the subgroup whose hospitalization time was longer than 7 d were higher than those of subgroup whose hospitalization time less than or equal to 7 d(P<0.05).Conclusion History of pancreatitis,ALB,FIB,CRP,MCTSI score,and BISAP score are factors influencing AP complicated with PE.

【Abstract】 Background With the aging of the population in Shanghai,the number of patients with chronic diseases observed in the community-based physical examination is increasing year by year.However,it is rarely reported that the status of chronic diseases can be evaluated by the inflammatory indicators during the physical examination.Objective To determine the scores of inflammatory indicators in the aged population in a community of Shanghai,and evaluate related clinical value.Methods In this study,we collected the physical examination data of the aged population in a community of Shanghai in July 2017.The general clinical characteristics and biochemical parameters were included.Furthermore,scores of inflammatory indicators,including lymphocyte-monocyte ratio(LMR),neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio(NLR) and platelet-lymphocyte ratio(PLR) were calculated.The prevalence of hypertension,diabetes and hyperlipidemia as well as the ratios of abnormal blood pressure,blood sugar,and blood lipid levels of the aged population included in this study were collected.The differences of LMR,NLR and PLR between participants with normal and abnormal blood pressure,glucose level,and blood lipid level were analyzed.Correlations between NLR and the levels of glycosylated hemoglobin and fasting blood glucose were evaluated.Additionally,the diagnostic values of LMP,NLR and PLR for diabetes were evaluated by receiver operating characteristic(ROC) curve.Results A total of 380 elderly people met the study criteria,including 157 males and 223 females with age(74.1±7.0)years old.In these participants,the number of cases diagnosed with hypertension was 245(accounting for 64.5% of the total number),diabetes was 81(21.3%),and hyperlipidemia was 17(4.5%).Whereas,the number of cases with observed abnormal blood pressure was 315(82.9%),abnormal blood glucose level was 157(41.3%),and dyslipidemia was 133(35.0%).Furthermore,we found that there were no significant differences in LMR,NLR and PLR between participants with normal and abnormal blood pressure level(P>0.05) as well as participants with normal and abnormal blood lipid level(P>0.05).Similarly,there were no significant differences in LMR and PLR between patients with normal and abnormal blood glucose level(P>0.05).However,NLR was significantly higher in patients with abnormal blood glucose level than those with normal blood glucose level(P<0.05).Using Pearson correlation test,we found that NLR in the aged population was not correlated with blood glycosylated hemoglobin level(r=0.051,P=0.322).In contrast,NLR was positively correlated with fasting blood glucose levels(r=0.151,P=0.003).Moreover,it was showed that the area under the ROC curve(AUC) of NLR for diagnosis of diabetes was 0.580〔95%CI(0.522,0.638),P=0.008〕;the cut-off point was 1.730;the sensitivity is 59.2%;and the specificity was 55.6%.Whereas,the AUC of LMR and PLR for diagnosis of diabetes were 0.479〔95%CI(0.420,0.538),P=0.486〕 and 0.480〔95%CI(0.421,0.539),P=0.508〕 respectively.Conclusion The incidence of chronic diseases is high among the aged population in the community.Among all the tested inflammatory indicators,there was a significant difference in NLR between patients with normal and abnormal blood glucose level.Thus,NLR has potential value in screening of diabetes in patients with abnormal blood glucose level during physical examination.

【Abstract】 Background The main pathophysiological basis of renal ischemia/reperfusion injury is lipid peroxidation injury of renal tubular epithelial cells,which directly affects the formation of urine.Probucol is a hypolipidemic drug with strong antioxidant effect. It can reduce the level of lipid peroxidation by increasing the activity of antioxidant enzymes in cells, and has better tissue or cell protective effect. However, there is no report about the effect of probucol on the damage of HK-2 human renal proximal tubule cells(RPTC)induced by oxygen-glucose deprivation/reoxygenation(OGD/R).Objective To explore effect and potential mechanism of probucol on OGD/R in HK-2 RPTC,giving new ideas for the new use of old drugs.Methods From December 2017 to September 2018,HK-2 RPTC were conventionally cultured to adhere on the culture plate completely and then divided into normal control group,OGD/R group,OGD/R+25 μmol/L probucol group,OGD/R+50 μmol/L probucol group,and OGD/R+100 μmol/L probucol group,respectively.The normal control group received no intervention.OGD/R models were established in other four groups.After successfully modeling,OGD/R group were given no intervention,OGD/R+25 μmol/L probucol group,OGD/R+50 μmol/L probucol group,and OGD/R+100 μmol/L probucol group were treated with 25,50 and 100 μmol/L probucol,respectively.At 12,24 and 48 hours after treatment,the proliferation activities of cells in each group were calculated to determine the optimal time and concentration of probucol for subsequent experiments.HK-2 cells were cultured to adhere on the culture plate completely and then divided into normal control group(no treatment),OGD/R group(establishing OGD/R model),probucol group(treatment with the optimal concentration of probucol),and OGD/R + probucol group(first establishing OGD/R model,then intervened with the optimal concentration of probucol).At the optimal treatment time of probucol,the morphology of cells in each group was observed,and the activities of lactate dehydrogenase(LDH)and glutathione peroxidase(GPX),levels of malondialdehyde(MDA),glutathione(GSH)and GPX4 were detected.Results The proliferative activities of cells in OGD/R group,OGD/R+25 μmol/L probucol group,OGD/R+50 μmol/L probucol group and OGD/R+100 μmol/L probucol group were lower than those in normal control group at 12,24 and 48 hours after intervention(P<0.05).The cell proliferation activities of OGD/R+50 μmol/L probucol group and OGD/R+100 μmol/L probucol group at 24 and 48 hours after intervention were higher than those of OGD/R group and OGD/R+25 μmol/L probucol group(P<0.05).The cell proliferation activities at 24 and 48 hours after intervention increased significantly compared with those at 12 hours after intervention in both OGD/R+50 μmol/L probucol group and OGD/R+100 μmol/L probucol group(P<0.05).Because the principle of drug use is that under similar action,lower concentration and shorter action time are generally chosen,the following experiment was carried out with 50 μmol/L probucol for 24 hours.In OGD/R group,the number of suspended cells increased,the cells shrank,the volume decreased,the normal morphology lost,and the refractive index decreased.The cells in probucol group had normal morphological structure and complete adherence.In OGD/R+probucol group,the number of suspended cells decreased,but the refractive index of cells was comparatively good.The activities of LDH in OGD/R group and OGD/R+probucol group were higher than those in normal control group(P<0.05).The activities of LDH in probucol group and OGD/R+probucol group were lower than those in OGD/R group(P<0.05).The activity of LDH in OGD/R+probucol group was higher than that in probucol group(P<0.05).The level of MDA in the control group was lower than that of OGD/R group and probucol group(P<0.05).The level of MDA in OGD/R group was higher than that of probucol group and OGD/R+probucol group(P<0.05).The level of MDA in OGD/R+probucol group was higher than that in probucol group(P<0.05).The activity of GPX in OGD/R group was lower than that in normal control group(P<0.05).The activities of GPX in both probucol group and OGD/R+probucol group were higher than those in OGD/R group(P<0.05).The activity of GPX in OGD/R+probucol group was lower than that in probucol group(P<0.05).The level of GSH in OGD/R group was lower than that in normal control group(P<0.05).The level of GSH in OGD/R group was lower than that of both probucol group and OGD/R+probucol group(P<0.05).The level of GPX4 in OGD/R group was lower than that in normal control group(P<0.05).The levels of GPX4 in probucol group and OGD/R+probucol group were higher than those in OGD/R group(P<0.05).Conclusion Probucol can protect HK-2 RPTC from OGD/R-induced injury,possibly by activating GPX,especially by increasing the level of GPX4,directly or indirectly inhibiting the excessive production of lipid peroxides.

【Abstract】 Background Lung cancer is the first killer threatening human life and health. The incidence of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)accounts for 70% to 80% of lung cancer. Radiotherapy and chemotherapy are the main measures to treat NSCLC,but it is difficult to obtain satisfactory therapeutic effect. Bufeihuayu Decoction is a clinical experience prescription for the treatment of lung cancer. It has certain curative effect on common lung diseases and lung cancer. However,the existing research is limited to the curative effect of Bufeihuayu Decoction on NSCLC,and its mechanism is rarely reported.Objective To explore NSCLC patients' clinical response and serological response〔changes in serological markers of both nitric oxide(NO) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)〕to Bufeihuayu decoction,an adjuvant therapy.Methods This randomized,double-blind study was conducted in 87 cases of NSCLC from Ruikang Hospital Affiliated to Guangxi University of Chinese Medicine from January 2012 to December 2015.Patients were divided into control group(n=43) and observation group(n=44) by randomized parallel control study.Both groups received vinorelbine plus cisplatin,a conventional chemotherapy program as first-line therapy,in addition,the observation group received Bufeihuayu decoction〔for 2 courses of treatment (once daily,3 weeks as a course of treatment)〕.Comparisons were made between the two groups in terms of clinical response〔assessed by TCM syndrome score and quality of life evaluated by the Karnofsky Performance Scale (KPS) and SF-36〕,serological response(evaluated by serum NO and VEGF),immune response(evaluated by peripheral T-lymphocyte subsets) and safety(evaluated by the incidence of toxicity and side effects) during the treatment period.Results After treatment,compared with the control group,the observation group had much higher overall response rate,and rate of achieving stable disease(P<0.05),significantly lower serum NO and VEGF levels(P<0.05),obviously higher levels of peripheral CD3+ T cells,CD4+ T cells and CD4+/CD8+ ratio,and much lower level of CD8+ T cells(P<0.05).Moreover,the TCM syndrome score,KPS score and SF-36 score in the observation group were significantly better than those in the control group(P<0.05).The incidence of alopecia,gastrointestinal reactions,myelosuppression,and diarrhea was much lower than that of the control group(P<0.05).Conclusion As an adjuvant therapy to first-line chemotherapy for NSCLC,Bufeihuayu decoction can significantly enhance the overall clinical response,down-regulate the levels of serum NO and VEGF,improve the cellular immune function and quality of life,and reduce the side effects caused by chemotherapy.
