【Abstract】 Background Hypertension is one of the risk factors affecting the life quality of the elderly and it is closely related to blood lipid metabolism with gender differences.The blood fatty acid spectrum is an important indicator which reflects the level of blood lipid metabolism, but its correlation with the occurrence and development of hypertension is still controversial.Objective To investigate the gender differences in plasma phospholipid fatty acids and their correlation with blood pressure in community elderly hypertensive patients of Ningxia.Methods A total of 2 231 community residents of Ningxia who were examined in Ningxia International Travel Health Care Center in March 2016 were selected through cluster sampling method. According to the inclusion and exclusion criteria of this study, we screened 282 hypertension patients,149 males and 133 females. And their demographic information was collected. Physical examination was conducted to obtain the biochemical indicators and plasma phospholipid fatty acid spectrum.And then Spearman rank correlation analysis was used to analyze the relationship between plasma phospholipid fatty acid content and systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure and pulse pressure difference. Multiple linear regression analysis was adopted to analyze the influencing factors of systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure and pulse pressure difference. Results The age, education level, marital status, monthly income, smoking, serum creatinine, blood urea(UA), alanine aminotransferase(ALT), aspartate aminotransferase(AST)of males were significantly higher than those of the females, while the total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol(HDL-C)and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol(LDL-C)of males were significantly lower than those of the females(P<0.05).The plasma phospholipid fatty acid C13:0, C22:1, and C24:1, monounsaturated fatty acid( MUFA), C18:3n-3, C18:3n-6 and C20:2n-6 of females were higher than those of the males(P<0.05).Correlation analysis showed that in male patients, plasma phospholipid fatty acids C12:0 and C20:4n-6 were negatively correlated with diastolic blood pressure(P<0.05), while C21:0, C18:1, C20:5n-3, C18:2n-6, and C20:2n-6 were positively correlated with diastolic blood pressure(P<0.05), C20:4n-6 were positively correlated with pulse pressure difference and there was negative correlation between C24:0, C18:1, C18:  3n-3, C20:5n-3 and C20:2n-6 and pulse pressure difference(P<0.05).In female patients, plasma phospholipid fatty acid C10:0 was negatively correlated with systolic blood pressure, while C21:0, C22:0, C18:1T, C18:3n-3, and C18:2TT were positively correlated with systolic blood pressure(P<0.05), and C22:0 and C14:1 were positively correlated with diastolic blood pressure(P<0.05), C18:1T and C18:3n-6 were positively correlated with pulse differential pressure(P<0.05).In hypertensive patients, the plasma phospholipid fatty acids C22:0 and C18:1T were positively correlated with systolic blood pressure, while C23:0 was negatively correlated with systolic blood pressure(P<0.05), and C12:0 and C20:4n-6 were negatively correlated with diastolic blood pressure, and C15:0, C18:0, C21:0, C22:0, C18:1, C20:5n-3, C18:2n-6, and C20:2n-6 were positively correlated with diastolic blood pressure(P<0.05), and C18:1T and C20:4n-6 were positively correlated with pulse pressure difference, while C20:5n-3 was negatively correlated with pulse pressure difference(P<0.05).Multiple linear regression analysis showed that plasma phosphatic fatty acids C21:0〔β=3 312.095, 95%CI(969.916, 5 654.275), P=0.007〕, C20:5n-3〔β=184.205, 95% CI (16.822, 351.588), P=0.032〕, and C20:2n-6〔β=-12 371.615, 95%CI(-20 122.194, -4 621.037), P=0.003〕were the influencing factors of male diastolic blood pressure.C18:3n-6〔β=492.867, 95%CI (77.420, 908.315), P=0.021〕was the influencing factor of female pulse pressure difference, and C18:1T〔β=113.848, 95% CI (43.906, 183.790), P=0.002〕and C20:4n-6〔β=31.488, 95% CI (2.431, 60.546), P=0.034〕were the influencing factors of pulse pressure difference in elderly hypertension patients. Conclusion The plasma phospholipid fatty acid C13:0, C22:1, and C24:1, MUFA, C18:3n-3, C18:3n-6 and C20:2n-6 of females are higher than those of the males in elderly community hypertensive patients of Ningxia. There are positively correlated between C21:0, C20:5n-3, C20:2n-6 with male diastolic blood pressure, C18:3n-6 with pulse differential pressure, C18:1T, C20:4n-6 with pulse differential pressure.Therefore, we should pay attention to the diet habit and rationally control the intake of fatty acids.

【Abstract】 Background Short stature is a common problem in children's growth and development,which is caused mainly by growth hormone deficiency (GHD),and its diagnosis depends on the growth hormone(GH) stimulation test.Studies have shown that serum lipid levels may be one of the factors that influence the variability of GH response at a stimulation test.However,similar studies have not been conducted in child population yet.Objective To investigate the relationship between serum lipids and peak GH at a stimulation test in children and adolescents with short stature,to provide evidence for possible factors influencing the stimulated peak GH in such populations.Methods A retrospective analysis was performed on 1 009 Chinese children and adolescents with short stature recruited from Department of Endocrinology,Jining Medical University,from 2013 to 2017.Clinical data such as height,body weight,and other anthropometric parameters as well as serum lipid profile,results of GH stimulation test with L-dopa or insulin-induced hypoglycemia test (insulin tolerance test,ITT) were collected.Stratified analysis was performed on two subgroups 〔dwarfism subgroup (n=595) and slightly undersized subgroup (n=414)〕 divided by the third height percentile.Univariate and multiple linear regression analyses were used to explore the correlations of peak GH at a stimulation test with anthropometric parameters and serum lipids.Results The peak GH value at the stimulation test with L-dopa (PEAK1) was negatively correlated with body weight,BMI,BMI SDS,TG,TC,HDL-C,LDL-C,VLDL-C,and ALT,but positively correlated with IGF-1 (P<0.05);the peak GH value at the ITT (PEAK2) was negatively correlated with BMI SDS,TC,and HDL-C,but positively correlated with female,age,bone age,height,body weight,Hb and IGF-1 (P<0.05).Multiple linear regression analysis showed that PEAK1 was negatively correlated with both TG and HDL-C (P<0.05),and PEAK2 was negatively correlated with HDL-C (P<0.05).In the dwarfism subgroup,PEAK1 showed a negative correlation with HDL-C (P<0.05).In the slightly undersized subgroup,PEAK1 demonstrated a negative correlation with both TG and HDL-C (P<0.05),and PEAK2 demonstrated a negative correlation with HDL-C (P<0.05).Conclusion This study suggests that serum lipids affect the response of GH at the stimulation test.It is suggested that low-fat diet should be adopted before the GH stimulation test,which may improve the accuracy of diagnosis of GHD.

【Abstract】 Background Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is highly invasive,characterized by rapid tumor doubling time,early metastasis,easy recurrence,and poor prognosis.At the time of diagnosis,only about 30% of patients are in limited disease.Although SCLC is highly sensitive to radiotherapy and chemotherapy,some patients will develop drug resistance and tumor proliferation after a period of treatment.Therefore,to find out the factors affecting the response and outcome following treatment in SCLC patients will play a certain role in stratified management and prognosis improvement of these patients.Objective To analyze the serum levels of NSE and Pro-GRP in the evaluation of response and outcome following initial chemotherapy in SCLC patients.Methods From July 2015 to July 2016,103 patients with SCLC confirmed by pathological examination were recruited from Department of Respiratory Medicine,Changhai Hospital.All of them received initial chemotherapy for 4 to 6 cycles.Serum NSE and Pro-GRP levels were measured before and after chemotherapy.The patients were followed up as of 2017-07-31,and the progression-free survival(PFS) were recorded.Results Among the 103 patients,7 (6.8%) had complete response (CR),18 (17.5%) had partial response (PR),53 (51.4%) had stable disease (SD),and 25 (24.3%) had disease progression (PD).Compared with baseline,patients with CR and PR had decreased average serum NSE and Pro-GRP levels after the chemotherapy,so did those with SD(P<0.05).But there were no significant differences in average pre- and post-chemotherapy NSE and Pro-GRP levels in PD patients (P>0.05).The average levels of NSE and Pro-GRP in CR+PR,SD,and PD groups were significantly different after chemotherapy (P<0.05).Spearman rank correlation test revealed that pre-chemotherapy NSE and Pro-GRP levels had no correlations with treatment response (rs=0.019,P=0.845;rs=0.171,P=0.086),but postchemotherapy NSE and Pro-GRP levels did (rs=0.342,P<0.001;rs=0.350,P<0.001).The distribution of responses to initial chemotherapy differed significantly between those with NSE< upper limit of normal(ULN) and those with NSE≥ULN (P<0.05).But the distribution of responses to initial chemotherapy did not vary significantly between those with Pro-GRP < ULN and those with Pro-GRP ≥ULN (P<0.05).The PFS changed obviously according to tumor stage,metastasis status,levels of postchemotherapy NSE and Pro-GRP(P<0.05).Multivariate survival analysis using Cox's regression model showed that tumor stage 〔HR=2.19,95%CI (1.29,3.72)〕 and postchemotherapy NSE level 〔HR=2.67,95%CI (1.62,4.44)〕 were prognostic factors of SCLC patients (P<0.05).Conclusion Postchemotherapy NSE and Pro-GRP levels can well monitor the response to chemotherapy in SCLC patients.In particular,postchemotherapy NSE level may also be used for predicting the outcome.

【Abstract】 Background Smoking is one of the risk factors for colorectal cancer,and is closely associated with the recurrence and metastasis of colorectal cancer after operation.The harm of smoking to patients with colorectal cancer has not achieved sufficient clinical attention,and the research on smoking cessation rate and factors influencing relapse in such patients is rare.Objective To investigate smoking cessation rate and factors influencing relapse in colorectal cancer patients who had smoking habit at admission within one year after operation.Methods From January 2014 to January 2017,117 patients who had not quit smoking when diagnosed with colorectal cancer by colonoscopy and pathology at Minhang Hospital,Fudan University were enrolled.They received radical colorectal cancer surgery (laparotomy or laparoscopic minimally invasive surgery) 1 to 2 weeks after routine cessation of smoking.The patients stopped smoking for 3-4 weeks and received regular health education before discharge.The general condition of the patients were recorded,the information of factors that may influence the relapse were obtained through a questionnaire survey,and the situation of relapse was observed through one-year out-patient follow-up.The smoking cessation rate and independent factors influencing relapse were analyzed with multivariate Logistic regression.Results A total of 117 cases were included,and all of them completed one-year follow-up.Smoking cessation rate was 59.8%(70/117),and smoking relapse rate was 40.2%(47/117).Sex,education level,monthly household income,age of starting to smoke,smoking age,daily cigarette consumption,having the first cigarette within 5 minutes of waking up in the morning,understanding level of the dangers of smoking,understanding level of the relationship between smoking and respiratory diseases,and receiving regular postoperative chemotherapy were not associated with postoperative one-year smoking relapse rate (P>0.05).Age >55 years old,not living alone,family members and friends opposing smoking,understanding the relationship between smoking and colorectal cancer,undergoing laparotomy,and having a permanent colostomy were associated with a lower smoking relapse rate (P<0.05).Multivariate Logistic regression analysis showed that age 〔OR=0.276,95%CI(0.104,0.729)〕,living alone 〔OR=0.190,95%CI(0.044,0.816)〕,attitudes of family and friends towards smoking 〔OR=0.279,95%CI(0.108,0.719)〕and whether having a permanent colostomy 〔OR=0.162,95%CI(0.032,0.810)〕 were independent influencing factors for postoperative one-year smoking relapse in colorectal cancer patients (P<0.05).Conclusion Postoperative one-year smoking cessation rate in patients with colorectal cancer is less than desirable.Age,living alone or not,family members and friends' attitudes toward smoking are the main factors that affect patients smoking cessation.Tobacco control should be strengthened especially for those undergoing minimally invasive surgery without colostomy.

【Abstract】 Background Available studies have shown that in the monitoring of patient volume status and volume responsiveness by the FloTrac/Vigileo system,stroke volume variation(SVV) ≥ 13% indicates the patient capacity is insufficient,otherwise it is relatively sufficient,and when the tidal volume(VT) ≤ 5 ml/kg,SVV can not accurately reflect patient volume status and volume responsiveness.However,there is no clear conclusion about the specific relationship between VT and SVV.Objective To investigate the effects of different VT on SVV in open gastrointestinal surgery,and to analyze the feasibility and accuracy of using SVV to evaluate patient volume responsiveness under different VT.Methods Sixty patients undergoing elective open gastrointestinal surgery in Weifang People's Hospital from October 2018 to June 2019 were selected.After mechanical ventilation,the VT was adjusted to 6,8,10 and 12 ml/kg,respectively,and the mean arterial pressure(MAP),heart rate(HR),SVV and CI values were recorded.When the SVV measured at VT of 8 ml/kg was ≥13%,then rapid intravenous rehydration of 500 ml 6% hydroxyethyl starch 130/0.4 in 0.9% sodium chloride injection was performed.Then the MAP,HR,SVV and the CI under four VT conditions were measured and recorded again.Results Before rapid intravenous rehydration therapy,MAP and HR were similar under four different VT conditions(P>0.05),while SVV differed significantly(P<0.05).The SVV under four different VT conditions increased with the increase VT,to be specific,SVV at VT=8 ml/kg was higher than that at VT=6 ml/kg,SVV at VT=10 ml/kg was higher than that at VT=6 ml/k and VT=8 ml/kg,and SVV at VT=12 ml/kg was higher than that at VT=6 ml/k,VT=8 ml/kg and VT=10 ml/kg(P<0.05).After rapid rehydration therapy,MAP and HR were still similar under four different VT conditions(P>0.05),while SVV still differed significantly(P<0.05).When the ΔCI(the difference of CI before and after rapid rehydration therapy) ≥15% was defined as having response to rehydration therapy,the AUC of SVV in determining the volume responsiveness at VT=6 ml/kg,8 ml/kg,10 ml/kg and 12 ml/kg,was 0.625,0.884,0.873,and 0.856,respectively,and the corresponding diagnostic threshold was 10%,13%,16%,and 19%,respectively.Conclusion VT has an effect on SVV.The greater the VT,the larger the measured SVV value.The SVV monitored under VT of 6-12 ml/kg can determine the blood volume status of the patient.But compared with at VT of 6 ml/kg,the SVV measured at VT=8,10,12 ml/kg can more accurately determine the capacity status and volume responsiveness of the patient under mechanical ventilation.The critical values of SVV under different VT are different.The critical values of SVV are 10%,13%,16%,and 19%,respectively,when VT=6,8,10,12 ml/kg.

【Abstract】 Background The addition of oxaliplatin to adjuvant chemotherapy for colorectal cancer has been shown to improve overall survival at the expense of increased toxicity.The incidence and severity of toxicity might be greater among older patients who might also derive less benefit from oxaliplatin.Objective To evaluate the association between oxaliplatin-assisted chemotherapy and peripheral neuropathy in elderly patients with colorectal cancer.Methods This study was a retrospective cohort study.A total of 38 085 patients aged 66 or above who underwent surgery for colorectal malignancies in the Department of Gastrointestinal Surgery of Hainan General Hospital and the Second Affiliated Hospital of Hainan Medical University from 2012 to 2015 were included in the study.Among 3 607 stage Ⅱ and Ⅲ patients receiving adjuvant chemotherapy,1 541 (42.72%) patients received oxaliplatin-assisted chemotherapy and 2 066 (57.28%) patients received fluorouracil chemotherapy alone.According to age,patients were divided into 66-69 years old group(n=987) and ≥70 years old group(n=2 620).The clinical data were collected in the three-year follow up.As of 1 February 2018,the incidence of peripheral neuropathy,drug use rate of neuropathic pain and mortality rate were recorded.A multi-variable hazard modelling was constructed by the incidence of peripheral neuropathy and drug use rate of neuropathic pain.The cumulative incidence function was used to estimate the incidence of peripheral neuropathy,drug use rate of neuropathic pain,and mortality rate.Results There were significant differences in gender,pathological stages,complication rate of dementia and stroke,Charlson's complications index (CCI) between two groups (P<0.05).The proportion of pathological stageⅢ and colon cancer in patients aged 66-69 with oxaliplatin-assisted chemotherapy was higher than those without oxaliplatin-assisted chemotherapy,while the complication rate of diabetes mellitus and CCI were lower (P<0.05).The proportion of male,pathological stageⅢ and colon cancer in patients aged 70 or above with oxaliplatin-assisted chemotherapy was higher than those without oxaliplatin-assisted chemotherapy,while the age,complication rate of dementia and CCI were lower (P<0.05).Oxaliplatin-assisted chemotherapy was associated with an increased risk of peripheral neuropathy in all patients (P<0.05).Oxaliplatin-assisted chemotherapy was not associated with an increased risk of peripheral neuropathy in patients aged 66-69 (P<0.05).Oxaliplatin-assisted chemotherapy was associated with an increased risk of peripheral neuropathy in patients aged 70 or above(P<0.05).Oxaliplatin-assisted chemotherapy was associated with increased use of gabapentin,tricyclic antidepressants and duloxetine in all patients (P<0.05).Oxaliplatin-assisted chemotherapy was associated with increased use of tricyclic antidepressants in patients aged 66-69(P>0.05).Oxaliplatin-assisted chemotherapy was associated with increased use of gabapentin and tricyclic antidepressants in patients aged 70 or above (P<0.05).The incidence of peripheral neuropathy was 6.63% 〔95%CI(5.44%,7.97%)〕,the drug use rate of neuropathic pain was 15.43% 〔95%CI(13.61%,17.37%)〕 and the mortality rate was 14.72% 〔95%CI(13.04%,16.67%)〕 in patients receiving oxaliplatin-assisted chemotherapy for three years.Conclusion Oxaliplatin-assisted chemotherapy in elderly patients with colorectal cancer can lead to peripheral neuropathy,especially in patients aged 70 and above who have a higher risk of peripheral neuropathy and drug use of neuropathic pain.Therefore,for adjuvant chemotherapy in elderly patients with colorectal cancer,it is necessary to fully consider the peripheral neuropathy.

【Abstract】 The physiological role of intestinal microbiota in non-gastrointestinal diseases has attracted growing attention of researchers, which has also been shown to be an important factor in the pathogenesis and development of heart failure.There are characteristic changes in intestinal microbiota composition in patients with heart failure, such as the increase of harmful microbiota and their metabolites, for example trimethylamine oxide(TMAO), and the decrease of protective microbiota and their metabolites, for example short-chain fatty acids. Meanwhile, heart failure can also induce intestinal congestion, edema, and heightened permeability, allowing harmful microbiota and their toxic metabolites such as endotoxin into the circulation through the intestinal wall, which triggers cytokine generation and activates signal pathway, thereby contributing to further impairment in cardiac function. Given the importance of intestinal microbiota in the development of heart failure, it is expected that regulating intestinal microbiota and interfering with its metabolites will be a new target for the diagnosis and treatment of heart failure. The article aims to review the changes of intestinal microbial composition, the mechanism of their toxic metabolites in heart failure and the research progress in interventional intestinal microbiota in the treatment of heart failure.

【Abstract】 Background Hubei Province launched a pilot project of health management in 2013. After four years of implementation, it has achieved good results and has been popularized throughout the Province. However, there is no systematic evaluation standard for health management in Hubei Province. Objective To establish and apply an evaluation system for health management service in Hubei Province.Methods Literature review and expert consultation methods were used to establish the evaluation system of Hubei health management services from 2014 to 2016.Based on analytic hierarchy process (AHP),index weight coefficients were established.From the data of pilot areas in four functional zones in Huangpi of Wuhan,namely,Airport Economic Zone,North Hankou Commercial Zone,Mulan Tourism Zone and Metropolitan Agricultural Zone,the weighted rank sum ratio (WRSR) model was used to classify and rank the service.Results The final established health management service evaluation system included 6 first-level indexes,21 second-level indexes and 38 third-level indexes.The WRSR values of North Hankou Commercial Zone,Metropolitan Agriculture Zone,Mulan Tourism Zone and Airport Economic Zone were 0.702 6,0.680 3,0.618 5,0.498 7,respectively.Conclusion The WRSR model can be used to evaluate the quality of health management service in Hubei Province,which proves that the overall service is generally good.

【Abstract】 Background There were three Constitution of Chinese Medicine Questionnaire(CCMQ) with 60-item, 41-item, and 30-item. But, their performance hadn't been evaluated in the healthy population. Besides, targets of the three CCMQ were different. Then their performance should be evaluated and compared by the same sample, so that researchers can choose the suitable one according to their actual situation. Objective To compare the performance of 60-item CCMQ, 41-item CCMQ, and 30-item CCMQ in healthy populations. Methods This cross-sectional study was conducted from 2015 to 2016. The 1 295 participants were all with a history of donating whole blood voluntarily without payment,who were recruited at Beijing Red Cross Blood Center huts and cars received a field survey,for collecting the data concerning general demographic characteristics, constitution evaluated by 60-item CCMQ. According to the whole-blood donation times calculated by the donated blood volume, the participants were divided into three groups: 1-4 times group (n=692), 5-9 times group (n=311) and ≥10 times group (n=292). The reliability, construct validity, and discrimination validity of these 3 versions of CCMQ were analyzed with Cronbach's α, factor analysis, and method of least squares, respectively. Results The Cronbach's α were 0.70-0.80 for 60-item CCMQ, 0.61-0.80 for 41-item CCMQ, 0.49-0.73 for 30-item CCMQ. By factor analysis, 8 common factors with an eigenvalue greater than 1 were extracted from 60-item CCMQ, and 41-item CCMQ, respectively, explaining 48.08%, 52.86% of the total variance, respectively. For the 8 common factors extracted from 30-item CCMQ, the first 6 ones had an eigenvalue greater than 1, while factor 7 and factor 8 had an eigenvalue of 0.96, 0.90, respectively, explaining 57.13% of the total variance. 1-4 times group, 5-9 times group and ≥10 times group showed significant differences in the mean scores of gentleness, qi-deficiency, yang-deficiency, yin-deficiency, phlegm dampness, dampness-heat, blood-stasis, qi-depression, and special diathesis of both 60-item and 41-item CCMQ, and in the mean scores of gentleness, qi-deficiency, yang-deficiency, yin-deficiency, dampness-heat, blood-stasis, and qi-depression of the 30-item CCMQ (P<0.05). Conclusion For the assessment of constitution of healthy populations, all these 3 versions of CCMQ have good reliability and validity. Researchers can select one of them according to the purpose of study and the properties of the participants.
