【Abstract】 Background Dietary protein intake and distribution in each meal have received increasing interest.An even distribution of protein intake throughout the day in meals can maximally stimulate muscle protein synthesis to maintain or increase muscle mass.This would be a particularly important strategy for older individuals experiencing sarcopenia and obese individuals losing skeletal muscle mass during energy-restricted diets.Objective To investigate the correlation of daily dietary protein intake and distribution with skeletal muscle mass in community-dwelling elderly people in Shanghai.Methods In 2017,a total of 329 elderly people were recruited from four communities(Shimenerlu Community,Chuncheng Community,Lvdi Community and Jiangsulu Community) in Shanghai.General personal characteristics were collected,including sex,age,BMI,skeletal muscle mass,body fat content and history of disease.Three-day food record was used to assess the daily dietary energy,relative daily protein intake,and daily fat intake in three consecutive days.Dietary nutrient intakes were calculated using SY nutrition software developed by Shanghai Clinical Nutrition Quality Control Center & Shanghai Medical College,Fudan University.Results Among the 329 subjects,116 were males,and 213 were females.The mean age was(69.8±6.4) years.All of them returned effective questionnaires,with a response rate of 100.0%.Compared with women,men had higher average dietary energy,fat intake and carbohydrate intake(P<0.05).Of the subjects,7.0%(23/329) at least consumed 2 meals of ≥30 g protein/meal,21.6%(71/329) consumed 1 meal of ≥30 g protein/meal,71.4%(235/329) did not consume any meals of ≥30 g protein/meal per day.The frequency of protein consumption(≥30 g/meal) differed significantly by BMI,skeletal muscle mass and body fat content(P<0.05).Multiple linear regression analysis showed that having 1 meal and ≥2 meals of ≥30 g protein/meal per day instead of having no such meal were independent influencing factors of skeletal muscle mass in the elderly(P<0.05).Sex-based subgroup analyses showed that having ≥2 meals of ≥30 g protein/meal per day was an independent influencing factor of skeletal muscle mass in elderly men(P<0.05),and having 1 meal and ≥2 meals of ≥30 g protein/meal were independent influencing factors of skeletal muscle mass in elderly women(P<0.05).Age-based subgroup analysis found that having 1 meal and ≥2 meals of ≥30 g protein/meal per day were independent influencing factors of skeletal muscle mass in 60-79-year-old people(P<0.05).BMI-based subgroup analysis revealed that having 1 meal and ≥2 meals of ≥30 g protein/meal per day were independent influencing factors for skeletal muscle mass in those with BMI<24 kg/m2,and those with BMI≥24 kg/m2,respectively(P<0.05).Dose-response analysis demonstrated that when having 1 meal of 40 g protein/meal or at least 2 meals of 35 g protein/meal per day,the skeletal muscle mass tended to be stable.Conclusion Only a few elderly people in the community consumed at least 1 meal of ≥30 g protein/meal per day.An even distribution of protein across the day in meals(≥30 g/meal) may increase or retain the skeletal muscle mass.Moreover,the consumption of 2 meals with protein content of 30-35 g per meal might be an important strategy for increasing or maintaining skeletal muscle mass in elderly people.

【Abstract】 Background Non-tumor breast cancer does not have typical characteristics of breast cancer,and the detection rate in its early screening is lower than that in mass-type breast cancer.Objective To explore the value of MRI combined with mammography in the diagnosis of non-tumor breast cancer.Methods From January 2015 to July 2016,82 female patients who met the clinical criteria for palpation and mammography in the Fourth Hospital of Hebei Medical University were diagnosed as non-tumor breast lesions,and they were recruited as research subjects and divided into the malignant group and the benign group according to postoperative pathological results as the gold standard.The results of MRI and mammography were compared between the two groups.The sensitivity,specificity and accuracy of MRI and mammography based on BI-RADS classification were analyzed.Then,individual analysis was performed based on the signs and parameters of MRI and mammography.Logistic regression analysis was used to establish a fitted equation for the signs and parameters of MRI combined with mammography in the diagnosis of non-tumor breast cancer.The ROC curve for the diagnosis of non-tumor breast cancer was plotted and the area under the ROC curve(AUC),sensitivity,and specificity were calculated.Results According to the postoperative pathological results,53 patients were included in the malignant group and 29 patients were included in the benign group.For the MRI examination,the ADC value of the malignant group was lower than that of the benign group,while the outflow type in the time-to-intensity curve(TIC) type and the uneven enhancement ratio in the strengthening mode were higher than those in the benign group(P<0.05).The malignant group had a higher proportion of clustered microcalcification than the benign group(P<0.05).Based on the BI-RADS classification criteria,the sensitivity of MRI for the diagnosis of non-tumor breast cancer was 81.13%(43/53),the specificity was 65.52%(19/29),and the accuracy was 75.61%(62/82).The sensitivity of mammography was 66.04%(35/53),the specificity was 72.41%(21/29),and the accuracy 68.29%(56/82).In MRI examination,the accuracy of the ADC value,TIC type,and enhancement mode were greater than 70.0%(76.30%,77.80%,and 74.39%,respectively).In mammography examination signs(focal asymmetric density,clustered microcalcification,gland architectural distortion or disorder,and mixed signs),only the accuracy of clustered microcalcification was greater than 60.0%(70.73%).The fitted equation of the combined diagnosis model was Logit(P)=-6.369×ADC value+2.580×TIC type+ 1.856×enhancement mode +1.927×clustered microcalcification.The best cut-off value for the combined diagnosis model was 0.708,the AUC value was 0.919,the sensitivity was 84.91%,and the specificity was 93.10%.Conclusion Both MRI and mammography have different deficiencies in the diagnosis of non-tumor breast cancer.Logistic regression analysis is used to fit the ADC value,enhancement mode and TIC type in MRI and clustered microcalcification in mammography.This combined diagnosis model can significantly improve the diagnostic value of non-tumor breast cancer.

【Abstract】 Background NK/T-cell lymphoma is a malignant tumor that threatens human health.Its pathogenesis has not yet been clarified.There are few reports on the dynamic monitoring of NK/T-cell lymphoma at the molecular level.Objective To study the application of In Vivo Imaging Technique (IVIT) in the dynamic monitoring of NK/T cell lymphoma growth.Methods From October 2015 to October 2016,a total of 3 BALB/C-nu grade SPF mice were taken for experiment(The experiment was repeated three times).100 μl NK92-Luc cell lymphoma (containing 1×106 cells) was subcutaneously injected into the left hypochondrium of each mouse to establish a nude mouse model of subcutaneous xenograft tumor.Tumor volume was measured and calculated every day after the appearance of tumor,and growth curve was drawn according to the tumor growth.Bioluminescence imaging of tumors was detected by small animal in vivo imaging system on the 5th,8th,and 11th days after injection,and curve was plotted according to tumor luminescence photon number.The mice were sacrificed at the end of the experiment,and tumors and livers were taken out and were then embedded into wax blocks of paraffin,and were stained with HE for observing the histomorphological status.Results All the mice were successfully inoculated with tumors.The mean tumor size at the 5th,8th,and 11th days after injection was(0.003 8±0.002 3),(0.132 3±0.060 7),(0.423 2±0.069 6) mm3,respectively.Tumor growth curve plotted based on the changes in tumor volume showed that the growth of tumor was not obvious in the first 2 days,but quickened significantly in the 3rd and 5th days,and grew fastest in the 6th and 8th days,but tended to be moderate in the 9th to 11th days.The in vivo imager detected that the measured average photon number of the tumor at the 5th,8th,and 11th days after injection was (53 688 222±25 446 363)ph/s,(2 072 443 366±1 029 688 415)ph/s,(5 559 915 605
±708 457 376)ph/s,respectively.The tumor growth curve plotted according to tumor luminescence photon number mapping was consistent with the that based on changes in the tumor volume.Light microscopy revealed that the tumor cells were arranged in a sheet or nest shape,and the tumor cells infiltrated the blood vessels and pathological mitotic figures.Conclusion IVIT can non-invasively,continuously,quantitatively and dynamically monitor nude mice model of NK/T cell lymphoma stably expressing luciferase,suggesting that it may be used for early detection of NK/T cell lymphoma.

【Abstract】 The effect of medication in pregnancy on maternal health and fetal growth and development has aroused wide concern.However,due to limits of medical ethics and other factors,it is difficult to conduct an in-depth scientific research on medication during pregnancy.Schizophrenia is a chronic mental disease whose prevalence rate is increasing year by year.In particular,it is highly prevalent in those aged 25-35 years old,and women of this age group are in the ‘right' age to have a baby.In addition,treating emotional disorders and other psychiatric disorders associated with pregnancy,also may involve the use of antipsychotics.Antipsychotics can affect the fetus through the placenta,cause perinatal syndrome,even severe fetal malformations,and may also affect long-term neurobehavior.Likewise,untreated mental symptoms also affect the pregnant woman and the fetus.Therefore,the safety and necessity of appropriate use of antipsychotics during pregnancy have become a clinical problem that needs to be solved urgently.This paper mainly discusses the rational application of antipsychotics in pregnancy,in order to provide help for clinicians in formulating medication treatment plan for mental disorders during pregnancy.

【Abstract】 Background Thyroid nodules are a common clinical problem.Although thyroid nodules fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is the gold standard for identifying benign and malignant thyroid nodules,about 15%-30% of thyroid nodules cannot be identified by it.Therefore,there is an urgent need to find molecular markers that can effectively help identify thyroid nodules.Objective To investigate the expression levels of microRNA-221 and microRNA-222 in thyroid FNAC specimens of patients with benign and malignant thyroid nodules and their diagnostic value for benign and malignant thyroid nodules.Methods Sixty patients with thyroid nodules who met the research criteria in the First Affiliated Hospital of Kangda College of Nanjing Medical University from March 2015 to December 2017 were selected.All patients were examined by FNAC.The first diagnosis was malignant lesions in 17 cases,benign lesions in 34 cases,suspected malignant and undiagnosed lesions in 5 cases,follicular lesions in 2 cases and follicular tumors in 2 cases.The expression levels of miR-221 and miR-222 in thyroid nodules FNAC specimen of patients with benign and malignant lesions were compared.Take the results of pathological examination after operation as the gold standard,the working characteristic curve (ROC curve) of patients with malignant thyroid nodules diagnosed by miR-221 and miR-222 in thyroid nodules FNAC cytology was drawn,and the area under the ROC curve (AUC),sensitivity and specificity were calculated.The coincidence rates of thyroid nodules FNAC examination results and miR-221 and miR-222 in thyroid nodules FNAC examination specimens for the diagnosis of thyroid nodules were calculated.The expression levels of miR-221 and miR-222 in thyroid nodules FNAC samples of patients with different general data were compared.Results Pathological examination showed 51 benign nodules and 9 malignant nodules in 60 patients after thyroidectomy.The expression levels of miR-221 and miR-222 in patients with malignant nodules were higher than those in patients with benign nodules (P<0.05).The AUC of miR-221 in thyroid FNAC specimens for diagnosis of malignant thyroid nodules was 0.774 (0.691, 0.858). The cut-off value was 2.77, the sensitivity was 80%, the specificity was 60.0%, and the Yoden index was 0.400. The AUC of miR-222 in thyroid FNAC specimens for diagnosis of malignant thyroid nodules was 0.759 (0.672, 0.845). The cut-off value value was 2.73, the sensitivity was 76.7%, the specificity was 66.7%, and the Yoden index was 0.443. The coincidence rate of thyroid nodules FNAC examination results and thyroid nodules FNAC examination samples in the diagnosis of thyroid nodules by miR-221 and miR-222 was 80.0%.There was no significant difference in the expression levels of miR-221 and miR-222 between patients with different gender,age,maximum diameter of tumors,number of lesions,invasion of capsule,lymph node metastasis and TNM stage (P>0.05).Conclusion The expression levels of miR-221 and miR-222 in thyroid nodules FNAC specimen of patients with malignant thyroid gland were significantly increased.The diagnostic value of thyroid nodules FNAC alone in differentiating benign and malignant thyroid nodules was not high,but combined with thyroid nodules FNAC results,it could improve the diagnostic efficiency of benign and malignant thyroid nodules.
