【Abstract】 Background With the deepening understanding of depression,it has been found that depression is not only a neurodegenerative disease,but also closely related to the hypothalamus pituitary thyroid axis(HPT axis).The neurotrophic hypothesis of depression suggests that the precursor of brain-derived neurotrophic factor(proBDNF)plays a role in the pathogenesis of depression,but the relationships of depression with thyroid hormone and proBDNF are rarely studied.Objective To investigate the relationships of proBDNF and thyroid hormone level with depression.Methods Forty-three inpatients and outpatients with depression(case group)and 31 healthy examinees(control group)from the Mental Hospital of Yunnan Province were enrolled during October 2017 to June 2018.General information and levels of thyroid hormone〔triiodothyronine(T3),thyroxine(T4),free triiodothyronine(FT3),free thyroxine(FT4),thyrotropin(TSH)and proBDNF〕were collected and compared between the two groups.The relationships of levels of thyroid hormone and proBDNF with the total and subscale scores of HAMD-24 were analyzed.The correlation between thyroid hormone and proBDNF level was assayed.Results There were no significant differences in mean T3 and FT4 levels between the two groups(P>0.05).Mean T4,FT3 and TSH levels in the case group were lower than those in the control group(P<0.05).The level of FT3 was positively correlated with the total score of HAMD-24 and the score of cognitive impairment subscale in the case group(P<0.05).There was no significant difference of proBDNF level between the two groups(P>0.05).In the case group,the proBDNF level was not correlated with the total score and subscale scores of HAMD-24(P>0.05).And there was no correlation between thyroid hormone level and proBDNF level(P>0.05).Conclusion Depression patients are more prone to anxiety,suicide,paranoia,obsession,despair and sleeping problems,and may have hypothyroidism.

【Abstract】 Background Neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and mean platelet volume (MPV) are novel inflammatory response markers that can be used to predict the prognosis of patients with acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI).However,there are few studies exploring the clinical value of NLR combined with MPV in predicting the prognosis of STEMI patients.Objective To investigate the predictive value of NLR combined with MPV in the occurrence of nosocomial major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) after emergency percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with acute STEMI.Methods A total of 516 consecutive patients diagnosed as STEMI with emergency PCI in the First Affiliated Hospital of the Medical College,Shihezi University from October 2015 to September 2018 were selected.According to the median peripheral blood NLR and MPV on emergency admission,our cohort was divided into low NLR combined with low MPV group(NLR≤2.51 and MPV≤10.70 fl,n=135),low NLR and high MPV group(NLR≤2.51 and MPV>10.70 fl,n=123),high NLR combined with low MPV group(NLR>2.51 and MPV≤10.70 fl,n=137),high NLR combined with high MPV group(NLR>2.51 and MPV>10.70 fl,n=121).Our cohort was divided into high-risk group(GRACE score>140 points,n=212),medium-risk group (108 <GRACE score≤140 points,n=222),low-risk group (GRACE score ≤108 points,n=82) according to baseline GRACE score.According to the occurrence of MACE during hospitalization,our cohort was divided into MACE group (n=71) and non-MACE group (n=445).Comparisons of pre-PCI clinical and laboratory data,post-PCI medication,laboratory and color Doppler echocardiography data within 24 hours after PCI were performed by NLR with MPV,and the incidence of MACE,respectively.Logistic regression analysis was used to investigate the influencing factors of post-PCI MACE.ROC curve analysis was used to evaluate the value of NLR,MPV and NLR combined with MPV in predicting the occurrence of post-PCI MACE.The correlation between NLR and MPV before PCI was analyzed.The pre-PCI NLR and MPV were compared by GRACE score.Compared the incidence of no reflow and in-hospital MACE in hospital after PCI by NLR with MPV,and GRACE score,respectively.Results Low NLR combined with high MPV group showed lower rate of pre-infarction angina and higher mean GRACE score than low NLR combined with low MPV group (P<0.05).High NLR combined with low MPV group showed higher prevalence of hypertension and higher mean GRACE score,and lower rate of pre-infarction angina than than other three groups stratified by NLR and MPV(P<0.05).Low NLR combined with high MPV group had higher mean HCT,and higher mean peak values of HCT and TnT,and lower mean HDL-C and CRP than low NLR combined with low MPV group(P<0.05).High NLR combined with low MPV group showed higher mean neutrophil count,NLR and MPV,and higher mean peak values of CK-MB and TnT,as well as lower mean lymphocyte count and LVEF than low NLR combined with high MPV group(P<0.05).In comparison with high NLR combined with high MPV group,low NLR combined with low MPV group had lower mean neutrophil count,NLR,MPV,peak CK-MB and peak TnT,and CRP,and higher mean lymphocyte count and LVEF(P<0.05),low NLR combined with high MPV group showed lower mean neutrophil count,NLR,MPV,peak CK-MB and peak TnT,Scr,HDL-C and CRP,as well as higher mean lymphocyte count and LVEF(P<0.05),and high NLR combined with low MPV group demonstrated lower mean NLR,MPV,peak TnT,and CRP,and higher mean lymphocyte count and LVEF(P<0.05).Multivariate Logistic regression analysis showed that heart rate (OR=1.025),Killip classⅡ-Ⅳ(OR=4.231),GRACE score (OR=1.031),NLR (OR=2.716),MPV (OR=2.106),TnT peak (OR=1.215),CRP (OR=1.011),LVEF (OR=0.923) were independent influencing factors for the occurrence of in-hospital MACE in STEMI patients (P<0.05).The AUC of NLR,MPV and NLR combined with MPV for predicting MACE in STEMI patients after PCI was 0.670〔95%CI(0.609,0.730)〕,0.678〔95%CI (0.616,0.741)〕,and 0.732〔95%CI (0.671,0.791)〕,respectively.There was significant difference between NLR with MPV and NLR or MPV alone in predicting AUC of post-PCI MACE (P=0.012,0.023,respectively).NLR was positively correlated with MPV (rs=0.168,P=0.008).Mean NLR and MPV increased successively in low-risk,medium-risk,and high-risk groups(P<0.05).Low NLR combined with low MPV group showed lower incidence of no-reflow and in-hospital MACE after PCI compared with other three groups stratified by NLR and MPV (P<0.05).The incidence of no-reflow and in-hospital MACE in both high NLR combined with low MPV and high NLR combined with high MPV groups was higher than that of low NLR combined with high MPV group(P<0.05).High NLR combined with high MPV group showed higher incidence of no-reflow and in-hospital MACE than high NLR combined with low MPV group (P<0.05).The incidence of no-reflow and in-hospital MACE in both low-risk and medium-risk groups was lower than that in the high-risk group (P<0.05).Conclusion High NLR and high MPV at the early stage of admission are independent risk factors for nosocomial MACE in patients with STEMI after PCI.And NLR combined with MPV can more effectively predict the occurrence of in-hospital MACE,which can be used as a good indicator for prognosis evaluation of early STEMI patients.

【Abstract】 Background Recurrent spontaneous abortion(RSA) is one of the common diseases during pregnancy.Current etiological research shows that ACA(+) is closely related to its pathogenesis.COX-2 plays a role in regulating platelet aggregation and peripheral vasoconstriction,and catalyzing the inducible production of prostaglandin.So COX-2 and COX-2-catalyzed synthesis of PGE2 may be associated with ACA(+) RSA with the trend of blood hypercoagulability and affect pregnancy outcomes.Objective Clarify the relationship between ACA(+) RSA and   the abnormal expression of its COX-2 and PGE2, and explore the therapautical effect and molecular mechanism of method of invigorating the Kidney-nourishment & blood-activation decoction(KBD) to ACA(+) RSA.Methods All the participants were recruited from First Affiliated Hospital,Heilongjiang University of Chinese Medicine during March 2015 to March 2016,including 16 ACA(+) outpatients and inpatients with a history of RSA and current pregnancy loss undergoing curettage(experimental group 1),11 ACA(+) RSA outpatients and inpatients with a history of RSA undergoing tocolytic therapy due to possible miscarriage symptoms and signs during current pregnancy(experimental group 2),15 outpatients undergoing normal artificial abortion(control group 1),and 13 cases undergoing normal antenatal care(control group 2).RT-PCR was used to detect the expression levels of COX-2 and PGE2 mRNA in decidua samples of experimental group 1 and control group 1,but 30 cases were finally included(one case in the experimental group 1 was excluded later because chromosome abnormality was found to be the culprit for RSA).The experimental group 2 received KBD,while control group 2 received no interventions.ELISA was used to measure the expression levels of COX-2 and PGE2 in venous blood samples of experimental group 2 and control group 2 before and after the intervention period.Finally,only 20 cases in these two groups were enrolled because one case in the experimental group 2 was excluded due to later spontaneous abortion,and three cases in control group 2 actively dropped out.Results (1)The control group 1 showed higher mean expression levels of COX-2 mRNA and PGE2 mRNA in decidual tissues compared with experimental group 1(P<0.05).(2)At baseline,the control group 2 and experimental group 2 had significant differences in mean serum progesterone,β-HCG,COX-2 and PGE2 levels(P<0.05).But after receiving KBD,the experimental group 2 showed insignificant different mean levels of serum progesterone,β-HCG,and COX-2(P>0.05),and higher mean serum level of PGE2 compared with the control group 2(P<0.05).(3)Serum progesterone,β-HCG,COX-2 and PGE2 increased significantly in experimental group 2 after treatment(P<0.05).Conclusion Decreased expression levels of COX-2 and PGE2 in serum and decidual tissues of ACA(+) RSA patients indicate that both COX-2 and PGE2 may be involved in the occurrence of the disease.And KBD contributes to the maintenance of pregnancy possibly by regulating COX-2 and PGE2.

【Abstract】 Due to recently increased prevalence of chronic diseases,many self-management interventions become increasingly popular.However,self-management status in chronic heart failure patients is not so optimistic.We reviewed the self-management intervention models recently used in chronic heart failure patients under the guidance of doctors and nurses,and summarized that in foreign countries,the guidance is mainly delivered via the advanced remote supervising system,while in China,the guidance is mainly delivered via health education.To improve the prognosis of these patients through enhancing their self-management abilities,we suggest that both the two aforementioned guidance methods for patients are used together,and self-management status is also encouraged to record daily.

【Abstract】 Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome(OSA)is very common and can occur at any age.This article systematically described the current status of OSA diagnosis and treatment and the latest treatment progress,from non-surgical treatment and surgical treatment,respectively.The authors believe that general treatments,such as etiological treatment,lifestyle improvement,weight loss and sleep position intervention,can significantly improve the symptoms of patients with mild to moderate OSA.For patients with moderate to severe OSA,continuous positive airway pressure(CPAP)therapy remains the gold standard.The emerging telemedicine technology(TLC)is a promising medical model that can significantly improve the compliance of CPAP patients.For patients who cannot tolerate CPAP treatment,they can use oral appliance,and drugs.For patients with severe OSA who have congenital or acquired anatomical abnormalities and cannot tolerate CPAP,we recommend surgery.
