【Abstract】 Background Many patients with liver cirrhosis and diabetes mellitus(DM)suffer from protein-energy malnutrition as well as disorder of glycometabolism.With poor glycogen reserve and insulin resistance,these patients are prone to hypoglycemia in the morning.Previous studies have reported that late-evening snack(LES) is able to shorten the time of hunger and reduce the energy supply of oxidative decomposition of fat and protein to prevent hypoglycemia in the next morning in patients with cirrhosis.However,whether LES plays a role in cirrhosis patients with DM is still worth exploring.Objective To investigate the effect of 200 kcal of LES on energy metabolism and glucose metabolism in patients with liver cirrhosis and DM.Methods Twenty-five patients with hepatitis B cirrhosis and DM who met the research criteria were selected from January 1,2015 to December 30,2017 in the Department of Severe Liver Diseases in Beijing You'an Hospital,Capital Medical University. They were divided into high-carbohydrate LES management group with low-glycemic index(intervention group,n=13) and cirrhosis and DM diet group(non-intervention group,n=12) according to the random number table method.All patients continued to have antiviral,liver protection and hypoglycemic treatment.The non-intervention group maintained three meals a day;the intervention group changed the traditional three meals to four meals,and each meal reduced 67 kcal(16.7 g carbohydrate),and added a meal one hour before bedtime.The baseline demographic data(sex and age),baseline anthropometric data(body mass and BMI)before and after three-month intervention,dietary intake(carbohydrate,fat,protein and energy),energy metabolism index〔resting energy expenditure(REE),predicted resting energy expenditure(PREE),percentage of PREE(PREE%),respiratory quotient(RQ),carbohydrate oxidation rate(CHO%),fat oxidation rate(FAT%) and protein oxidation rate(PRO%)〕,glucose metabolism index〔glycosylated hemoglobin(HbA1c),fasting blood glucose (FBG) and fasting insulin (FINS)〕,insulin resistance index(HOMA-IR),islet B cell function index (FBCI) and liver function index (ALT,AST,TBIL,TP,ALB,PALB,CHE and PTA) were compared between two groups.Results There was no significant difference in body mass,BMI,carbohydrate intake,fat intake,protein intake and energy intake between the two groups at baseline and three months after intervention(P>0.05).There was no significant difference in REE,PREE and PREE% between the two groups after three-month intervention(P> 0.05).RQ and CHO% in the intervention group were higher than those in the non-intervention group after three-month intervention,while FAT and PRO% were lower(P<0.05).RQ and CHO% after three-month intervention in intervention group were higher than those at baseline in the same group,while FAT and PRO% were lower(P<0.05).HbA1c,FBG,FINS and HOMA-IR in intervention group were lower than those in non-intervention group at 3 months after intervention(P<0.05).There was no significant difference in FBCI between the two groups at 3 months after intervention (P> 0.05).HbA1c,FBG,FINS and HOMA-IR in the intervention group at 3 months after intervention were lower than those in the same group at baseline(P<0.05).TP,ALB and PALB in the intervention group at 3 months after intervention were higher than those in the same group at baseline(P<0.05).Conclusion Before going to bed,200 kcal of food with low-glycemic index and high-carbohydrate can improve nutritional metabolism and blood sugar control in patients with hepatitis B cirrhosis and DM,reduce insulin resistance and prevent hypoglycemia caused by disorders of glucose metabolism.

【Abstract】 Background Bronchial dilation test is mostly used as an important step in differentiating chronic obstructive pulmonary disease(COPD) from bronchial asthma-chronic obstructive pulmonary disease overlap(ACO),but it does not identify all COPD and ACO.Studies have shown that inspiratory capacity(IC) has a good sensitivity to reflect the degree of pulmonary hyperinflation and respiratory difficulty in patients with severe COPD,so we aim to study whether IC can be used as an indicator to distinguish patients with COPD from patients with ACO.Objective To evaluate the diagnostic value of IC in identifying COPD and ACO.Methods Twenty patients with COPD(COPD group) and 21 patients with ACO(ACO group) who were admitted to the respiratory department of the First Hospital Affiliated to Zhejiang Chinese Medical University and met the study criteria were enrolled from March to September in 2018.All patients underwent pulmonary ventilation function test,whose data were recorded as pre bronchial dilation test data,and then bronchial dilation test.After the bronchial dilation test,the pulmonary ventilation function test was performed again,whose data were recorded as post bronchial dilation test data.The general information(including height,mass,BMI,gender and age),indicators of pulmonary ventilation function 〔forced expiratory volume in 1 second(FEV1),forced vital capacity(FVC),IC,peak expiratory flow(PEF),forced expiratory flow after 25% of FVC(FEF25),forced expiratory flow after 50% of FVC(FEF50),forced expiratory flow after 75% of FVC(FEF75),maximum mid-expiratory flow(MMEF)〕,the pre and post bronchial dilation test data and their absolute value changes(Δ),and improvement rate between patients in two groups were compared.The correlation between IC improvement rate and Δ FEV1,improvement rate of FEV1,Δ FVC,improvement rate of FVC,Δ PEF,improvement rate of PEF among patients with ACO and COPD was analyzed.The improvement rate of IC was analyzed to show its diagnostic value of ACO.Results The age of patients in the ACO group was smaller than that in the COPD group(P<0.05).When compared with the COPD group,the ACO group showed higher ΔFEV1 and improvement rate of FEV1,higher ΔFVC and improvement rate of FVC,higher ΔPEF and improvement rate of PEF,and improvement rate of IC(P<0.05).There was no correlation between the improvement rate of IC and ΔFEV1,improvement rate of FEV1,ΔFVC,improvement rate of FVC,ΔPEF and improvement rate of PEF in ACO group(P>0.05).Improvement rate of IC was positively relevant with improvement rate of FVC in the COPD group(rs=0.501,P=0.021) and was not related with ΔFEV1,improvement rate of FEV1,ΔFVC,ΔPEF and improvement rate of PEF(P>0.05). In ROC analysis,the improvement rate of IC presented an area under the ROC curve of 0.714(P=0.019);the optimal cutoff value was 13.11%,with a sensitivity of 61.90% and specificity of 85.00%.Conclusion IC has a certain value in evaluating the response of bronchodilator in patients with mild-moderate COPD,but it is not as sensitive as FEV1 in a certain extent.IC does show good sensitivity and specificity in the ACO diagnosis,and has a large clinical reference value.However, whether IC can be used as an indicator to identify COPD and ACO needs further study.

【Abstract】 Background Breast-conserving surgery combined with whole breast radiotherapy has become the standard treatment for early breast cancer,but the most important disadvantage of breast-conserving surgery is that there may be tiny residual lesions at or close to the margin.Several studies have demonstrated that intraoperative frozen-section analysis(FSA) can assess the situation of margins,and prevent reoperation and reduce the local recurrence rate.Objective To explore the factors influencing surgical margin positivity in FSA during breast-conserving surgery.Methods According to the study criteria,we enrolled 629 patients undergoing FSA during breast-conserving surgery Tianjin Medical University Cancer Institute and Hospital from August 1,2014 and October 31,2016.We collected their clinical data,and analyzed the prevalence and associated factors of initial positive margin,the value of the distance from the mass to the nipple in the diagnosis of initial positive margin,and factors associated with the number of initial positive margins.Results Among the 629 patients,434(69.0%) were found with initial negative margins,other 195 (31.0%) with initial positive margins.After extended resection,the margins of 92 (47.2%) patients became negative,but the margins of 7 (3.6%) patients were still positive.96 patients (49.2%) immediately underwent total mastectomy after being found with initial positive margins.526 patients (83.6%) had successful breast-conserving surgery.Those with initial positive margins and initial negative margins showed significant differences in terms of the distance from the mass to the nipple,tumor distribution along the duct,pathological type and lymph node metastasis prevalence (P<0.05).Multivariate logistic regression analysis showed that the distance from the mass to the nipple〔OR=0.830,95%CI (0.700,0.982),P=0.030〕,and tumor distribution along the duct〔OR=0.232,95%CI (0.103,0.521),P<0.001〕,pathological type 〔invasive carcinoma of no special type:OR=0.268,95% CI (0.090,0.798),P=0.018〕,lymph node metastasis〔OR=0.154,95%CI (0.075,0.318),P<0.001〕 were the influencing factors of the initial positive margin in breast-conserving surgery.The ROC curve of the distance from the mass to the nipple for the diagnosis of initial positive margin was drawn,the area under the ROC curve was 0.572〔95%CI(0.520,0.624)〕,the optimal cut-off value was 4.55 cm,and the sensitivity was 0.815,the specificity was 0.333.The prevalence of 1,2,3 and 4 or more initial positive margins was 50.8%(99/195),28.2%(55/195),11.3%(22/195),and 9.7%(19/195),respectively.Menopause,and implementation of preoperative breast MRI were associated with less initial positive margins(P<0.05).Conclusion The distance from the mass to the nipple,tumor distribution along the duct,pathological type (mainly invasive carcinoma of no special type),and lymph node metastasis are the influencing factors of the initial positive margin in breast-conserving surgery.Non-menopausal patients and those receiving no preoperative breast MRI are more likely to be found with more initial positive margins.

【Abstract】 Background Patients with autoimmune liver disease may be accompanied by extrahepatic autoimmune disease,and autoimmune thyroid disease(AITD)is the most common.In primary biliary cholangitis(PBC)patients,the incidence of extrahepatic autoimmune disease can be up to 42.3%.The study of thyroid hormone and antibody secretion in patients with PBC may provide evidence for the diagnosis and evaluation of PBC.Objective To analyze the clinical significance of thyroid hormones and antibodies in patients with PBC,offering evidence for early diagnosis and treatment of PBC.Methods We conducted a retrospective study among 121 PBC inpatients from the Affiliated Hospital of Southwest Medical University from June 2013 to July 2018,among whom 65 progressed to cirrhosis(Child-Pugh grade:39 cases of grade A,19 cases of grade B,7 cases of grade C)and other 56 did not.A total of 101 healthy physical examinees were selected from the hospital during the same period.General data,thyroid hormone and antibody indices were collected.Thyroid hormone and antibody were compared between PBC patients and healthy people,cirrhosis patients and non-cirrhosis patients and healthy people,cirrhosis patients with different liver function grades. Results  Compared with the healthy controls,lower average levels of FT3 and FT4,and higher average level of TSH as well as higher rates of TPOAb and TGAb positivity were found in PBC patients(P<0.05),and in cirrhosis patients and non-cirrhosis patients(P<0.05).Cirrhosis patients had lower average levels of FT3 and FT4,and lower rate of TGAb positivity,but higher average level of TSH than non-cirrhosis patients(P<0.05).Compared with those with grade B or C cirrhosis,patients with grade A cirrhosis showed higher average level of FT3 and lower average level of TSH(P<0.05).The average level of FT4 in those with grade C cirrhosis was lower than that of those with grade A cirrhosis(P<0.05).Patients with grade C cirrhosis showed lower average levels of FT3 and FT4,and higher average level of TSH than those with grade B cirrhosis(P<0.05).Conclusion There are differences in thyroid hormones and antibodies between PBC patients and healthy subjects.Decreased levels of FT3 and FT4 and elevated level of TSH in PBC patients with cirrhosis indicate that TSH may play a role in promoting hepatic fibrosis,but FT3 and FT4 may be involved in delaying the progression.The level of FT3 increases with the increase of Child-Pugh grade while the level of TSH decreases with that in PBC patients.The levels of FT3 and TSH reflect the severity of liver function impairment indirectly.

【Abstract】 Background Both generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) and depressive disorder (MDD) could lead to reduction in heart rate variability (HRV),increasing the risk of comorbid cardiovascular diseases.However,the effects of anxiety and depression on HRV parameters and the underlying mechanisms are still unclear.And studies about the impact of comorbid MDD on HRV in GAD patients are also very rare.Objective To investigate the relationships of HRV with GAD and MDD by examining HRV features in such patients.Methods A total of 140 participants were recruited from Jiangxi Mental Hospital during January 2015 to December 2016,including 90 outpatients and inpatients〔30 with GAD alone(GAD group),30 with GAD and MDD(GAD and MDD group),and 30 with MDD alone(MDD group)〕,and 50 clinic health examinees(control group).A survey was conducted to collect demographic data〔age,sex,BMI,systolic blood pressure(SBP),diastolic blood pressure(DBP),weekly exercise time〕 of patients group at baseline,and of the control group at one week after grouping using a clinician-developed demographic questionnaire.The 17-item version of Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale(HAMA-17) and Hamilton Depression Rating Scale(HAMD) were used to identify anxiety and depression symptoms,respectively.HRV was measured in patients group at one week after treatment,and in control group at one week after grouping.And the measurement results,time-domain parameters〔standard deviation of average NN intervals (SDANN),and the square root of the mean squared differences of successive normal sinus intervals (RMSSD)〕,and frequency-domain parameters〔low frequency (LF) and high frequency (HF)〕,were analyzed.Pearson correlation analysis was used to assess the correlations of HAMA-17 and HAMD scores with HRV.Results Sex ratio,mean age,BMI,SBP,DBP,and weekly exercise time did not differ significantly across the three patients groups and the control group (P>0.05).GAD,and GAD with MDD groups had significantly higher mean HAMA-17 scores than MDD group and control group(P<0.05).GAD with MDD and MDD groups showed higher mean HAMD scores than GAD group and control group(P<0.05).Mean LF value of GAD with MDD group was much lower than that of other two patients groups and control group(P<0.05).Mean LF value of GAD group was much lower than that of MDD group and control group(P<0.05).Mean HF value of GAD with MDD group was much lower than that of other two patients groups and control group(P<0.05).Mean HF value of GAD group was much lower than that of MDD group and control group(P<0.05).MDD group showed much lower mean values of HF and LF than control group(P<0.05).The values of HF and LF were lower in MDD group than those in control group(P<0.05).Furthermore,LF,HF,and LF/HF values were negatively correlated with the scores of HAMA-17 and HAMD in GAD and MDD patients(P<0.05).Conclusion Our present study demonstrated that both GAD and MDD can lead to reduction in HRV,and HRV was significantly correlated with the severity of anxiety and depression,suggesting that reduced HRV might be a psychopathological indicator of GAD.Since GAD comorbid MDD may result in a further reduction in HRV,the risk of cardiovascular diseases in these patients need clinicians to pay more attention.
