【Abstract】 Background Guidelines from various medical specialties have different definitions for maximum extreme exercise.By analyzing the data of cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPET) included in the fourth edition of Principles of Exercise Testing and Interpretation,we found that if a peak RER or a blood pressure reading is used as the termination criterion,some patients' functional indicators will be underestimated,or some patients will not reach the specific value.In the CPET,in order to objectively quantify and accurately ensure that the results of the CPET are accurate,the Max testing is feasible.Objective To clinically verify whether the CPET is a maximum extreme exercise,and to design the Max test to verify the accuracy of the objective quantitative functional assessment of CPET results and whether it is feasible to use the specific value of a specific index as the criterion for stopping the exercise.Methods Sixty cases from Fuwai Hospital were enrolled during December 2017 to June 2018,including 20 physcial examinees(control group) and 40 with cardiovascular diseases(patient group).All of them first performed individualized symptom-limited maximal CPETs,during which 12-lead ECG parameters,oxygen saturation,noninvasive blood pressure level and pulmonary gas exchange were measured with PFT Ergo Omnia 1.6.2 produced by COSMED S.R.L,Italy.When the CPET ended,they had a 5-minute break,then underwent the Max testing,during which,they cycled with a velocity of ≥60 r/min,at a constant intensity equivalent to to 130% of peak oxygen consumption,until exhausted.The difference and percentage difference between the peak heart rate and the peak oxygen uptake were calculated.If the percentage difference between heart rate,and that between oxygen uptake are all less than -10%,then the participant's Max testing is thought to be succesful,otherwise it is failed.Results Patient group's peakO2 (L/min,ml·min-1·kg-1,%pred),anaerobic threshold(L/min,ml·min-1·kg-1,%pred),peak VO2P(ml/time,% pred),peak RER,peak SBP,peak WR,peak heart rate,OUEP(ratio,%pred) were lower than those of the control group(P<0.05).The E/CO2-lowest (ratio,%pred) and E/CO2 slope(ratio,%pred) were higher in the patient group than in the control group (P<0.05).No adverse events occurred during the CPETs and Max testing in all cases.Among the healthy controls,16(80.0%) were successful in completing the Max testing.And CPET was proved to be maximum extreme exercise,non-maximum extreme exercise,and failed for 12 cases(75.0%),4(25.0%),and 4(20.0%),respectively.In the patients,Max testing was successful in 37 cases(92.5%).CPET was proved to be maximum extreme exercise for 34 cases(91.9%),non-maximum extreme exercise for 3 cases(8.1%),and failed in 3 cases(7.5%).Conclusion For CPET with a low peak RER and a maximum challenge,the Max testing can be completed after 5 minutes to confirm the accuracy of the objective quantitative assessment of CPET.Max testing is safe and feasible,and deserves further research and clinical application.

【Abstract】 Background Reelin is a large secreted extracellular matrix glycoprotein that modulates neuronal development and participates to the functioning of adult central synapses.After migrations have ceased,neurons within the spinal cord especially in the superficial dorsal horn continue to express Reelin.The expression of spinal dorsal horn Reelin down-regulates significantly in neuropathic pain rats,while the role of Reelin in nociceptive processing and pain is still unknown.Objective To investigate the effects of intrathecal injection of Reelin shRNA on pain behaviors in adult rats.Methods A total of 119 8-10-week-old healthy male SD rats of SPF grade were selected and treated with intrathecal catheter implantation in 2015.The 108 rats with successful implantation were randomly assigned to normal group (Norm gourp,n=12),RNA interference group (RNAi group,n=12),sham-operation group (Sham group,n=12),sham plus RNA interference group (SR group,n=6),chronic compression injury (CCI) of sciatic nerve group (CCI group,n=27),CCI plus RNA interference group (CR group,n=27),and CCI plus empty vector group (EV group,n=12),respectively.Groups of CCI,CR and EV received a partial sciatic nerve ligation to establish CCI models.RNAi,SR and CR groups were intrathecally treated with lentiviral vector of Reelin shRNA,while EV group received intrathecal injection of an empty lentiviral vector.Western blotting was used to test the expression level of Reelin protein on the 4th,7th,10th,14th and 21st days of intervention.Immunohistochemical technique was used to observe the localization of Reelin in the spinal dorsal horn on the 10th day of intervention.Paw withdrawal mechanical threshold(PWMT) and paw withdrawal thermal latency(PWTL) were tested before and on the 1st,4th,7th,10th,14th,17th and 21st days of intervention,respectively.Results On the 10th day of intervention,compared with rats in Norm group,the mean expression level of Reelin protein increased significantly on both right and left sides of spinal dorsal horn of rats in RNAi group (P<0.05);the mean expression level of Reelin protein in the left spinal dorsal horn in CR group was significantly lower than that of in sham and CCI groups (P<0.05);the mean expression level of Reelin protein in the right spinal dorsal horn in Sham group was significantly higher than that of CCI,CR and EV groups (P<0.05);the mean expression level of Reelin protein in the right spinal dorsal horn in CR group was significantly lower than that in CCI group (P<0.05). The mean expression level of Reelin protein in the right spinal dorsal horn was significantly lower than that in the left spinal dorsal horn in CCI group on the 4th day of intervention and the same was true of CR group (P<0.05). The mean expression level of Reelin protein in the left spinal dorsal horn in CCI group was much higher than that of Reelin protein in the right spinal dorsal horn in CCI group and that of Reelin protein in the left spinal dorsal horn in CR group on the 7th,10th,14th,and 21st days of intervention (P<0.05). The mean expression level of Reelin protein on right spinal dorsal horn in CR group was lower than that of the right spinal dorsal horn in CCI group on the 7th,10th,14th,and 21st days of intervention (P<0.05). Reelin diffusely localized in laminae Ⅰ,Ⅱ,Ⅴ of spinal dorsal horn and in the lateral spinal nucleus (LSN) of rats in normal group.Only a small amount of filament proteins were found in lamina Ⅰ-Ⅱ and LSN of bilateral spinal dorsal horn,and a small amount of expression was found in lamina Ⅴ of the spinal dorsal horn in RNAi group.Reelin protein on both right and left sides of spinal dorsal horn had no changes in Sham group.Reelin protein in the right spinal dorsal horn was less than the contralateral level in CCI group.Only a very small amount of Reelin protein could be detected on both right and left sides of superficial dorsal horn in CR group.Empty vector had no obvious effects on the expression of spinal Reelin protein in EV group.Compared with rats in Sham group,both mean PWMT and PWTL of rats in CCI,CR and EV group were significantly decreased on the 1st,4th,7th,10th,14th,17th,21st days of intervention (P<0.05). Both mean PWMT and PWTL in CR group were lower than those of CCI group on the 7th,10th,14th,17th,21st days of intervention (P<0.05). Conclusion Spinal Reelin may have no significant effects on pain threshold under physiological condition while spinal Reelin downregulation may contribute to the development of neuropathic pain after peripheral nerve injury.

【Abstract】 Background Atrial fibrillation (AF) is one of the most common arrhythmias encountered clinically.Thrombosis is a common complication of AF.For a long time,warfarin was a first choice for anticoagulation in patients with AF.But adverse reactions of warfarin have been troubled clinicians and patients.At present,with the new anticoagulants generated,and their efficacies have been verified by large-scale clinical trials,this problem has been solved.But there is still lack of direct comparative studies of such anticoagulants.Objective To evaluate the therapeutic effect of novel oral anticoagulants in patients with AF by network meta-analysis.Methods Databases of PubMed,EMBase,the Cochrane Library,Web of Science,CBM,Wanfang Data,CNKI were searched for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) concerning novel oral anticoagulants in patients with AF from inception to July,2018.Quality assessment and data extraction from the included RCTs were performed.Statistical analyses of the incidence of embolization,intracranial hemorrhage,ischemic stroke,myocardial infarction,and gastrointestinal bleeding,and all-cause mortality were conducted with R 3.4.3 and Stata 14 software.Surface under the cumulative ranking (SUCAR) was used to rank the value of the treatments.Results A total of 28 RCTs were included,involving 261 272 patients.The results of network meta-analysis showed that the incidence of embolic events associated with warfarin was higher than that caused by dabigatran(150 mg),rivaroxaban (20 mg),apixaban (10 mg),and edoxaban (60 mg) (P<0.05).The incidence of intracranial hemorrhage related with warfarin was higher than that caused by dabigatran (110 mg),dabigatran 
(150 mg),rivaroxaban (20 mg),apixaban (10 mg),edoxaban (30 mg)and edoxaban (60 mg)(P<0.05).Warfarin was associated with a higher incidence of ischemic stroke compared with dabigatran (150 mg) (P<0.05).Other treatments,except for ximelagatran (36 mg) and rivaroxaban (15 mg),were associated with lower all-cause mortality compared with warfarin (P<0.05).Warfarin was associated with a higher incidence of myocardial infarction compared with ximelagatran (36 mg) (P<0.05).But it was associated with a lower incidence of gastrointestinal bleeding compared with rivaroxaban (20 mg) (P<0.05).SUCAR values of all the interventions demonstrated that,dabigatran (150 mg) was associated with lower incidence of embolization and all-cause mortality;edoxaban(30 mg) was related to lower incidence of intracranial hemorrhage and gastrointestinal bleeding;ximelagatran (36 mg) was associated with lower incidence of ischemic stroke and myocardial infarction.Conclusion Available evidence shows that apixaban (10 mg) may be a promising treatment.The overall quality of the included studies is high,and the analysis results have certain guiding significance.However,considering the unsatisfied quality of the included domestic studies,our results need to be verified by more high-quality domestic studies.

【Abstract】 Background Professional identity of general practitioners(GPs)can stimulate enthusiasm and initiative of GPs in primary health care.Driving forces of research and teaching and career expectations can affect the professional identity of GPs.However,their relationship and formation mechanism of professional identity are unclear.Objective To explore the formation mechanism of professional identity of GPs,in order to provide effective incentive approaches of research and teaching for the improvement of GPs' professional identity.Methods From September to November 2017,using stratified random sampling,we selected 397 GPs from community health centers in urban area,urban and rural intersections and suburbs of Shanghai.All of them were surveyed with 4 self-administered questionnaires,GPs' Basic Personal Characteristics Questionnaire,GPs' Self-perceived Driving Forces of Research and Teaching Scale (SDFRT),Career Expectation Scale (CES) and Professional Identity Scale (PIS).On the basis of the survey results,we constructed a structural equation model (SEM) and tested it for the analysis of the formation mechanism of GPs' professional identity.Results A total of 397 questionnaires were issued,383 of which were valid.The effective recovery rate was 96.5%.The mean scores of 4 dimensions of the SDFRT,resource support,organization management,performance incentive and innovation support,were (10.3±3.0),(11.4±2.9),(6.1±2.2),and (11.3±2.7),respectively.The mean scores of dimensions of career development,career achievement and work-life balance of the CES were (9.5±3.1),(6.7±1.9),and (6.8±1.8),respectively.The mean scores of 3 dimensions of the PIS,professional cognition,professional behavior and professional values were (10.5±3.0),(8.6±1.6),and (8.4±1.7),respectively.The mean scores of all the dimensions of the scales showed positive correlations (P<0.05) except that the mean score of career development presented no linear correlation with that of performance incentive and work-life balance (P>0.05).Bootstrap analysis for the test of mediating effect showed that path coefficients from organization management,performance incentive and innovation support to professional cognition with career achievement,work-life balance as mediating variables did not include 0 in the 95% confidence interval (CI),indicating that mediating effects were significant.The results extracted from SEM showed that career expectation played a mediator role between organization management and professional identity completely,and played a mediator role between performance incentive,innovation support and professional identity partly.Organization management had mild positive effects on professional identity.Performance incentive positively influenced professional cognition,but negatively influenced both professional behavior and professional values.Innovation support produced strong positive effects on each dimensions of the PIS.Conclusion The career expectation plays a mediator role between research and teaching driving forces and professional identity partly.Community health centers are suggested to strongly support the innovative research and teaching work of GPs,ensure the equity of resource allocation and management system,and improve the performance evaluation mechanism.
