【Abstract】 Autism spectrum disorder(ASD)is a group of neurodevelopmental disorders characterized by impaired social interactions,a narrow range of interests and activities,and repetitive and stereotyped behaviors.The incidence of ASD worldwide is about 1%-2%,and it is still increasing year by year.This paper mainly introduces the epidemiological status of ASD and the implementation status of family intervention,and reviews the development status of ASD in China.Previous interventions for children with ASD mainly focused on the recovery of social functions and the increase of social behaviors,and rehabilitation training mainly in rehabilitation institutions,special schools and hospitals.Nowadays,more and more domestic and foreign scholars focused their attention on the parents and families of children with ASD,and gradually realized that the rehabilitation training for children with ASD should not be only limited to institutions,hospitals and special schools,and more rehabilitation treatments should be integrated into the family life.At the same time,the necessity and difficulties of family intervention in China were analyzed,and the thoughts and discussions on family intervention for children with ASD were put forward,so as to enable children with ASD to receive active and relaxing rehabilitation training except the sleep time through family intervention.This paper also focuses on the psychological and emotional state of ASD children's parents and primary caregivers,and points out that medical workers should actively cooperate with relevant psychological,educational and social sectors to design individualized intervention programs to help children with ASD and their parents and families achieve the best possible quality of life.

【Abstract】 Background With the development of living conditions and economy,type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and T2DM-related chronic complications are increasing year by year.Studies show that advanced glycation end-products(AGEs) in skin are closely associated with diabetes-related vascular complications,but in China there is lack of use of AGEs in skin in large-scale community-based screening of T2DM.Objective To analyze the value of AGEs in skin measured noninvasively in community-based screening of T2DM-related vascular complications.Methods From 2 community health centers participating in the medical consortium led by the First Affiliated Hospital of Anhui Medical University after signing a agreement,369 individuals undergoing physical examination during August 2017 to May 2018 were recruited,including 44 with T2DM without complications (pure T2DM group),53 with T2DM and complications (T2DM with complications group),and 272 healthy controls(control group).Levels of TG,TC,Cr,FBG,HbA1c and AGEs in skin were measured in all participants.Prevalence of lower extremity vascular lesion was determined by ankle brachial index.By the prevalence and severity of peripheral vascular lesion,T2DM patients were stratified into T2DM without peripheral vascular lesion,T2DM with mild and moderate peripheral vascular lesion subgroups.By A/C ratio,T2DM patients were stratified into T2DM without albuminuria,T2DM with microalbuminuria,and macroalbuminuria subgroups.By Neurologic Deficit Score (NDS),T2DM patients were stratified into T2DM with normal neurological function,mild,moderate and severe neurologic deficit subgroups.Results There was significantly difference in skin AGEs among pure T2DM group,T2DM with complications group and control group (P<0.05).Specifically,the control group had lower AGEs in skin compared with other two groups (P<0.05).Compared with pure T2DM group,the level of AGEs in skin was higher in T2DM with complications group (P<0.05).T2DM patients with complications had higher level of AGEs than those without of the same age group (P<0.05).The level of skin AGEs increased with the number and severity of T2DM-related complications,such as peripheral vascular lesions,albuminuria,and peripheral neuropathy,and so on (P<0.05).Multivariate Logistic regression analysis showed that age 〔OR=0.84,95%CI(0.73,0.97)〕 and AGEs in skin〔OR=1.35,95%CI(1.17,1.57)〕 were associated with T2DM with peripheral vascular lesions (P<0.05).Gender 〔OR=0.14,95%CI(0.03,0.61)〕,FBG 〔OR=1.49,95%CI (1.10,2.02)〕 and AGEs in skin〔OR=1.09,95%CI (1.02,1.16)〕 were associated with T2DM with albuminuria (P<0.05).Gender 〔OR=0.23,95%CI (0.06,0.86)〕 and HbA1c 〔OR=1.68,95%CI (1.04,2.71)〕 were associated with T2DM with peripheral neuropathy (P<0.05).The AUC of AGEs in skin in identifying T2DM-related complications was 0.833〔95%CI(0.753,0.914)〕,the optimal cut-off point was 71.5 AU,the sensitivity of diagnosis was 71.7%,and the specificity was 86.4%.Conclusion AGEs in skin may be used as a predictor of T2DM with peripheral vascular disease and kidney disease,and may be used as a reference for noninvasive measurement of T2DM-related complications in the community.However,the relationship between AGEs in skin and diabetic neuropathy needs to be studied and verified further.

【Abstract】 Background Respiratory syncytial virus(RSV)bronchiolitis is prone to recurrent wheezing,and the concentration of CysLTs in lower respiratory tract secretions is elevated.There are relatively few studies about montelukast,a leukotriene receptor antagonist,in the treatment of symptoms after RSV bronchiolitis.Objective To explore the effectiveness and safety of montelukast in the treatment of symptoms after RSV bronchiolitis in infants.Methods Consecutive infant patients with RSV bronchiolitis discharged from Weifang Maternal and Child Health Hospital from June 2015 to June 2017 were enrolled and were randomly divided into treatment group and control group,treated with montelukast oral granules 4 mg,once daily,for 12 weeks,placebo,once daily,for 12 weeks respectively(Ⅰ phase).Symptom-free days and personal diary about RSV bronchiolitis were evaluated in all infants.Nine-month follow-up(Ⅱ phase)was performed.Number of infants with recurrent wheezing and use of medical resources during Ⅰ + Ⅱphases were analyzed.Data were analyzed by full analysis set(FAS),a classic intention-to-treat analysis.Results A total of 186 infants were enrolled(92 in the treatment group,and 94 in the control group),179 of them(89 in the treatment group,and 90 in the control group)completed the Ⅰ-phase intervention,and finally 170 completed the interventions in bothⅠ + Ⅱphases(84 in the treatment group,and 86 in the control group).The average compliance was 97.8%(7 560/7 728)in the treatment group,and 97.4%(7 690/7 896)in the control group,showing no significant difference between the groups(χ2=3.16,P=0.07).During the study period of Ⅰ phase, there was no significant difference in the number of symptom-free days,symptom-free daytime,symptom-free at night and personal diary about RSV bronchiolitis between the two groups(P>0.05). During the whole study period(Ⅰ + Ⅱ phases),the number of patients with wheezing after RSV bronchiolitis in the treatment group was less than that in the control group(P<0.05).In the first nine months of follow-up,the treatment group had lower prevalence rate of recurrent wheezing(χ2=5.14,P=0.02).The numbers of using medical resources,beta-receptor agonists,and glucocorticoids,and hospitalization during the whole study period in the treatment group was less than that in the control group(P<0.05).The number of asymptomatic days was significantly different between those with eczema history in the treatment group and those in the control group〔(49.7±20.2)vs(36.3±20.4)〕(t=2.19,P=0.03),and between those with parental asthma history in the treatment group and those in the control group〔(51.3±20.9)vs(37.8±19.3)〕(t=2.24,P=0.03).During the whole study,no children withdrew from the study because of adverse reactions.There were no significant differences of the rate of gastrointestinal disorders,rash , elevated transaminase between the two groups(χ2=0.23,P=0.63;χ2=0.03,P=0.86;χ2=0.15,P=0.69).Conclusion Although the treatment with montelukast oral granules(4 mg,once daily,for 12 weeks)could not improve the respiratory symptoms after RSV bronchiolitis,it could decrease the recurrence frequency of wheezing.This treatment is safe and effective to some extent.
