【Abstract】 Background People with osteoporosis often have multiple coexisting diseases.These comorbidities may further decrease bone mineral density(BMD)and increase fracture risk,eventually putting a greater burden on patients and society.There are very few studies about the relationship between osteoporosis and comorbidities,which gives insufficient support to clinicians to comprehensively understand the comorbidities of osteoporosis.Objective This study aimed to investigate the characteristics of comorbidities and their impact on osteoporosis in osteoporotic inpatients,improving clinicians' diagnostic and therapeutic levels and reducing the burden of such patients.Methods From the totaled 37 559 inpatients with osteoporosis in West China Hospital of Sichuan University treated during March 2006 to December 2018,31 362 were enrolled after excluding 6 197.Data about diagnosis and BMD were collected.According to whether the patients have comorbidity,they were divided into comorbidity group and non comorbidity group,and the BMD of lumbar spine,femoral neck and total hip of the two groups were compared;according to whether the patients had fracture,they were divided into fracture group and non fracture group,and the number of comorbidity and the comorbidity rate of various diseases of the two groups were compared.Results 30 698(97.88%)were found with comorbidities,with an average number of comorbidities of(4.0±2.2),and 10 378(33.09%)of them had fractures.The top 3 comorbidities were essential(primary)hypertension(I10),type 2 diabetes(E11)and other intervertebral disc disorders(M51),with a prevalence of 41.41%,18.75%,and 15.88%,respectively.The top 3 coexisting systemic diseases were diseases of the musculoskeletal system and connective tissue(M00-M99),diseases of the circulatory system(I00-I99)and endocrine,nutritional and metabolic diseases(E00-E90),with a prevalence of 42.27%,32.15% and 31.25%,respectively.Among all the 24 comorbidities,there were 14 diseases that subjects complicated with anyone of them had higher lumbar vertebrae BMD than those without(P<0.05).Those with the highest BMD increase were complicated with type 2 diabetes(E11),essential(primary)hypertension(I10)and gonarthrosis(M17).There were 3 diseases,that subjects complicated with anyone of them had lower lumbar vertebral BMD than those without(P<0.05),including diseases of the blood and blood-forming organs and certain disorders involving the immune mechanism(D50-D89),chronic obstructive pulmonary disease(J44)and certain infectious and parasitic diseases(A00-B99).There were 4 diseases that subjects complicated with anyone of them had higher femoral neck BMD than those without(P<0.05).Those with the highest BMD increase were complicated with gonarthrosis(M17),diseases of the musculoskeletal system and connective tissue(M00-M99)and type 2 diabetes(E11).There were 12 diseases that subjects complicated with anyone of them had lower femoral neck BMD than those without(P<0.05).Those with the most BMD decrease were complicated with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease(J44),diseases of the blood and blood-forming organs and certain disorders involving the immune mechanism(D50-D89)and cerebral infarction(I63).There were 5 diseases that subjects complicated with anyone of them had higher total hip BMD than those without(P<0.05).Those with the highest BMD increase were complicated with type 2 diabetes mellitus(E11),gonarthrosis(M17)and other intervertebral disc disorders(M51).There were 9 diseases that subjects complicated with anyone of them had lower total hip BMD than those without(P<0.05).Those with the most BMD decrease were complicated with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease(J44),diseases of the blood and blood-forming organs and certain disorders involving the immune mechanism(D50-D89)and other respiratory disorders(J98).Subjects with osteoporotic fracture had more comorbidities than those without(P<0.05).Subjects with osteoporotic fracture had lower prevalence of coexistence of diseases of the musculoskeletal system and connective tissue(M00-M99),gonarthrosis(M17),injury,poisoning and certain other consequences of external causes(S00-T98),certain infectious and parasitic diseases(A00-B99)and neoplasms(C00-D48)than those without(P<0.05).Subjects with osteoporotic fracture had higher prevalence of coexistence of essential(primary) hypertension (I10),diseases of the circulatory system(I00-I99),endocrine,nutritional and metabolic diseases(E00-E90),diseases of the genitourinary system(N00-N99),diseases of the digestive system(K00-K93),diseases of the respiratory system(J00-J99),chronic obstructive pulmonary disease(J44),diseases of the nervous system(G00-G99),other respiratory disorders(J98),other diseases of liver(K76),cerebral infarction(I63),chronic ischaemic heart disease(I25),atherosclerosis(I70),diseases of the blood and blood-forming organs and certain disorders involving the immune mechanism(D50-D89),and mental and behavioural disorders(F00-F99)than those without(P<0.05).Conclusion In this study,it was found that osteoporosis was often associated with other common chronic diseases in the elderly,and special attention should be paid to the evaluation of BMD and risk of fragility fracture in patients with hypertension,diabetes,chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and nervous system diseases.When DXA underestimates BMD in patients with osteoarthritis and other muscle-joint diseases,a QCT BMD exam or a fracture risk assessment tool such as FRAX may be required for diagnosis.

【Abstract】 Background The etiology and pathogenesis of diabetes are complex.We intensively studied and summarized TCM-based tongue and face diagnosis techniques to make better use of them to diagnose diabetes conveniently,effectively and reliably.Objective To investigate pre- and post-treatment changes in tongue and face diagnosis parameters derived from corresponding images and their associations with laboratory indices in patients with type 2 diabetes.Methods From September 2017 to December 2018,320 diabetic patients' tongue and face diagnosis parameters derived from images(taken by DKF-ⅡFace Digital Detector and DKF-ⅡTongue Digital Detector developed by Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine),and laboratory indices(plasma blood glucose,glycosylated hemoglobin,cholesterol,triacylglycerol,high-density lipoprotein,low-density lipoprotein,blood urea nitrogen,blood creatinine,blood uric acid) were collected.Canonical correlation analysis was used to analyze the associations of tongue and face diagnosis parameters with laboratory indices.The paired t-test was used to analyze pre- and post-treatment changes in tongue and face diagnosis parameters in 35 of the participants.Results The canonical correlation coefficient between tongue diagnosis parameters and laboratory parameters was 0.919(P<0.05).The overall level of tongue diagnosis parameters were mainly influenced by the R value of tongue color,the characteristic value of rotten grease and the characteristic value of thickness of the tongue fur(canonical correlation coefficients were -0.808,
-0.791,-0.750,P<0.05).And the overall level of laboratory indices were mainly influenced by cholesterol,glycosylated hemoglobin and triacylglycerol(canonical correlation coefficients were -0.643,-0.590,-0.569,P<0.05).The canonical correlation coefficient between the of face diagnosis parameters and laboratory indices was 0.834(P<0.05).The reference of tongue diagnosis was mainly affected by the Y of face(canonical correlation coefficient was 0.732,P<0.05).And the laboratory indices were mainly affected by the fasting blood glucose and glycosylated hemoglobin(canonical correlation coefficients were 0.737 and 0.397,P<0.05).Compared with pre-treatment,the characteristic value of prick and G value of tongue color in 35 diabetic patients decreased after treatment(P<0.05),but other tongue and face diagnosis parameters did not(P>0.05).Conclusion  Tongue and face diagnosis parameters may be associated with clinical biochemical indices in type 2 diabetic patients to some extent,indicating that the former two may be used as TCM-based auxiliary predictive parameters for clinical diagnosis and outcome.The pre- and post-treatment changes in tongue and face diagnosis parameters show that tongue diagnosis parameters may be also used as an efficacy evaluation method in these patients.

【Abstract】 Background Gestational diabetes mellitus(GDM) accounts for an increasing proportion of gestational diseases in recent years,and its high incidence has brought great harm to maternal and infant health and public health in China.At present,studies suggest that the structural changes of human intestinal flora are closely related to related metabolic diseases.And more and more evidence suggests that changes in the structure and relative proportions of the constituents of intestinal flora may be high risk factors for diseases such as diabetes and obesity.Objective To explore the relationship between the changes of intestinal Clostridium coccoides and Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron and the occurrence of GDM.Methods In this study,a nested case-control design was used.A total of 1 034 pregnant women from the First Affiliated Hospital of Xinjiang Medical University were enrolled during March 1,2018 to March 30,2019.They were included as an observational cohort at the time of confirming the pregnancy in the first visit,receiving follow-up services once every 4 weeks as well as other antenatal care services from the hospital,till GDM was identified.And those with a definite diagnosis of GDM were included in the case group,who were compared with number-,age-,gestational week- and admission time-matched controls.Comparisons were made between two groups in terms of general data,Clostridium coccoides and Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron levels at admission,20 weeks of gestation,and time of identifying of GDM in the case group.The correlations of fasting blood glucose with Clostridium coccoides and Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron at different times in the case group were analyzed.Results All the cases in the observational cohort completed the follow-up except for 28 dropouts and 5 missing cases,and the prevalence of GDM in them was 8.99%(90/1 001).The case and control groups had no significant differences in mean age,education distribution,mean abdominal circumference,prevalence of family history of diabetes,polycystic ovary syndrome and hypertension(P>0.05).There was no significant difference between the two groups in the level of Clostridium coccoides and Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron when they were enrolled in the group(P>0.05);the level of Clostridium coccoides and Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron in the case group were higher than that in the control group at 20 weeks of gestation and time of identifying of GMD(P<0.05).At 20 weeks of gestation and time of identifying of GMD,the levels of Clostridium coccoides and Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron in the case group were higher than admission(P<0.05);Time corresponding to the diagnosis of GDM in case group,the levels of Clostridium coccoides and Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron in the control group were higher than admission and 20 weeks of gestation(P<0.05).In case group,both Clostridium coccoides and Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron were positively correlated with fasting blood glucose at the time of identifying GDM(r=0.435,P<0.001; r=0.342,P=0.001).Conclusion The structural changes of Clostridium coccoides and Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron be one of the causes of GDM.

【Abstract】 Background At present,sepsis still has high morbidity and mortality,and the evaluation method of its prognosis has been a hot topic.In recent years,the national early warning score(NEWS),midregional-proadrenomedullin(MR-proADM)and procalcitonin(PCT)have been widely used to independently evaluate the prognosis in patients with sepsis,but the evaluation efficiency of each of them is moderate.Whether the combination of the three has higher evaluation efficiency is still lack of relevant research.Objective To explore the prognostic value of NEWS combined with MR-proADM and PCT in patients with sepsis,to provide help for emergency physicians to make an appropriate evaluation of the prognosis of such patients.Methods A total of 112 patients with sepsis admitted to Department of Emergency,the Second Affiliated Hospital of Hainan Medical University from June 2016 to June 2019 were retrospectively selected.General data,NEWS,MR-proADM and PCT were collected.The patients were divided into the survival group and death group according to 28-day prognosis.The risk factors for 28-day mortality were explored by Logistic regression analysis.And the receiver operating characteristic(ROC)curve analysis was performed to evaluate the value of NEWS,MR-proADM and PCT,alone or in combination,in predicting 28-day mortality.Results During the 28 days of follow-up,88(78.6%)patients survived(survival group),and 24(21.4%)died(death group).The mean age,and mean levels of NEWS,MR-proADM and PCT in the death group were greater than those of survival group(P<0.05).The mortality of patients with NEWS >1-3,>3-5,>5 was higher than that of those with NEWS≤1(P<0.05).And the mortality of patients with NEWS>5 was higher than that of those with NEWS>1-3(P<0.05).The mortality of patients with MR-proADM >4.6 nmol/L was higher than that of those with MR-proADM≤1.2 or >1.2-2.5 nmol/L(P<0.05).The mortality of patients with PCT>3.6 μg/L was higher than that of those with PCT≤ 0.8 or > 0.8-1.4 μg/L(P<0.05).Multivariate Logistic regression analysis showed that NEWS〔OR=1.321,95%CI(1.070,1.630)〕,MR-proADM〔OR=1.254,95%CI(1.062,1.480)〕 and PCT〔OR=1.179,95%CI(1.049,1.326)〕were independently associated with 28-day mortality(P<0.05).The area under the ROC curve(AUC)of NEWS combined with MR-proADM and PCT for predicting 28-day mortality was significantly greater than that of each marker alone(Z=2.670,P=0.007;Z=2.104,P=0.043;Z=2.449,P=0.014).Conclusion NEWS,MR-proADM and PCT were closely related to the prognosis,and were independently associated with 28-day mortality in patients with sepsis.The combination of the three had higher capability to predict 28-day mortality than each alone.

【Abstract】 Background Acute ischemic stroke is a common and frequently occurring disease in the elderly and is associated with high mortality.But there is no accurate response to intravenous thrombolytic therapy using urokinase in such patients,and the disease is easily to recur.So it is crucial to seek active and effective treatment after intravenous thrombolytic therapy with urokinase.Objective To investigate the factors associated with the safety and outcome in ischemic stroke patients receiving early administration of tirofiban after urokinase for intravenous thrombolysis,providing a novel perspective for the treatment of this disease.Methods We conducted a retrospective study on 89 cases of ischemic stroke treated in Suzhou First People's Hospital between February 2017 and February 2019,and classified them into experimental group(early use of tirofiban after urokinase for intravenous thrombolysis) and control group(use of urokinase for intravenous thrombolysis).We collected their clinical data,including gender,age,prevalence of hypertension,diabetes and atrial fibrillation,admission plasma glucose level,onset-treatment-time,the NIHSS score at admission and 7th day after admission,the number of patients with bleeding,systemic bleedings,hemorrhagic infarction type 1(HI-1),HI-2,parenchymal hematoma type 1(PH-1) or PH-2 in 7 days,and deaths in 3 months after admission,and mRS scores(≤1 was considered a favorable outcome,and ≥2 was considered an unfavorable outcome) at 3 months after treatment.We used propensity score matching to control the confounding factors,and used binary Logistic regression to analyze the factors associated with the outcome.Results By propensity score matching,26 of the 32 cases in the experimental group and 26 of the 57 cases in the control group were finally included for further analysis,with no significant inter-group differences in sex ratio,mean age,prevalence of hypertension,diabetes,and atrial fibrillation,mean admission plasma glucose level,onset-treatment-time,and admission NIHSS score(P>0.05).The mean NIHSS score on the 7th day after admission decreased significantly in the control group(Z=-2.321,P<0.05) as well as in the experimental group(Z=-4.121,P<0.05),and it decreased even more significantly in the experimental group(Z
=-2.754,P=0.006).The incidence of bleeding,systemic bleedings,HI-2 and PH-2 within 7 days after admission and mortality rate in 3 months did not differ significantly in two groups(P>0.05).No HI-1 and PH-1 were found in all patients during the 7 days.The experimental group had a lower mean mRS score,indicating that a better outcome was achieved in general(P<0.05).Univariate Logistic regression analysis suggested that age〔OR=0.920,95%CI(0.848,1.000),P=0.049〕,NIHSS score at admission〔OR=0.538,95%CI(0.362,0.798),P=0.002〕 and early treatment with tirofiban〔OR=11.271,95%CI(1.833,69.317),P=0.009〕 were associated with the outcome.Conclusion Intravenous tirofiban immediately after urokinase seems to be safe and potentially more effective in early improvement of neurological functions and 3-month outcome compared with urokinase alone.

【Abstract】 Background The incidence of malignant tumors is on the rise in China.Early detection and treatment are very important to improve the prognosis and even cure malignant tumors.However, how to find a reliable and low-cost tumor screening method in the tumor screening project is worthy of clinical exploration.Objective To investigate the prevalence and screening methods of malignant tumors in physical examination in healthy populations,providing a reference for bettering tumor screening.Methods Participants were 185 938 physical examinees(105 204 men and
80 734 women without a history of having malignant tumors,stratified into 5 age groups of≤29,30-44,45-59,60-74,and≥75) from Health Control Department,Aerospace Center Hospital,from January 2016 to December 2018.By retrospectively analyzing their physical examination results,those who had positive results indicating high risk of malignant tumors were screened,and were followed up to explore the subsequent diagnosis,and among them those who were confirmed with a malignant tumor were counted.Results In our study,153 cases were diagnosed with malignant tumors,and the top five in turn were lung cancer(0.21‰),thyroid cancer(0.12‰),breast cancer(0.11‰),liver cancer(0.09‰),and cervical cancer(0.06‰).The detection rate of malignant tumor was the highest in the 60-74 age group(2.30‰),followed by≥75 age group(1.75‰),45-59 age group(1.46‰),30-44 age group(0.38‰) and≤29 age group(0.15‰).Compared with women,men showed higher lung cancer〔0.28‰ vs 0.12‰〕and liver cancer detection rate〔0.13‰ vs 0.02‰〕(χ2=4.318,5.032,P<0.05).Women had higher detection rates of breast cancer〔0.26‰ vs 0〕and thyroid cancer〔0.22‰ vs 0.05‰〕than men (χ2=27.368,9.989,P<0.01).The main detection methods used were chest CT or DR,ultrasound,tumor markers and liquid-based cytology test ThinPrep.Lung cancer was mainly detected by lung CT/DR.Ultrasound was the main means of screening pelvic and peritoneal and glandular tumors.Measuring tumor makers was a highly sensitive and specific method for detecting liver cancer,pancreatic cancer,gastric cancer,colorectal cancer and prostate cancer.Conclusion It is of great significance to conduct early screening for malignant tumors in healthy population,the high incidence age of malignant tumors was 60-74 years old. The main detection methods were chest CT or DR, ultrasound, tumor markers, TCT,especially for malignant tumors with high incidence.Physical examination center should establish a reliable and feasible method of tumor screening.

【Abstract】 Background Previous studies found that statins can activate osteoblasts and promote bone anabolic effect,thus providing a new perspective for clinical treatment of osteoporosis in the elderly.But it is not clear whether statins can treat osteoporosis in the elderly in the local community.There is also no literature in China about whether statins can retard bone mass loss rate of those with low bone mass.Objective To study the effects of atorvastatin on bone mass and muscle strength in elderly patients with hypercholesterolemia combined with low bone mass.Methods 401 elderly patients with hypercholesterolemia 〔total cholesterol(TC)>6.99 mmol/L〕and low bone mass(-2.5<T<-1.0) who received management from Shanghai Zhoujiaqiao Community were enrolled from July to September 2014,and were divided into two groups according to patient subjective choice of regimen:experimental group(n=199,voluntary taking atorvastatin 20 mg/d,plus calcium carbonate D3 600 mg/d and alfacalcidol 0.5 g/d),control group(n=202,taking calcium carbonate D3 600 mg/d,alfacalcidol 0.5 g/d).Bone density index,change of bone turnover markers〔beta collagen degradation products(beta-CTX),propeptide of typeⅠ collagen carboxyl end(PINP)〕,biochemical indicators〔creatine kinase(CK),ALT,AST,TC〕,and change of hand grip strength(both left- and right-hand grip strength) before intervention and after two years' intervention were compared.Results The baseline data,including demographic factors,BMD,TC showed no significant differences between the groups(P>0.05),the bone turnover markers,biochemical markers(except TC),and hand grip strength showed significant differences between the groups(P<0.05).After two years' intervention,compared with the control group,the experimental group showed greater mean BMD variation of the lumbar vertebrae of 1-4 〔(0.029±0.002) g/cm2 vs (0.007±0.001) g/cm2〕,of femoral neck〔0.024(0.012,0.040)g/cm2 vs 0.009(0.003,0.015)g/cm2〕,and of hip〔(0.026±0.017) g/cm2 vs (0.007±0.006) g/cm2〕(P<0.001).The experimental group showed lower mean variation of beta-CTX〔(-0.151±0.087) μg/L vs(-0.020±0.017) μg/L〕,and of PINP〔(-17.57±16.89) μg/L vs(-3.48±6.29) μg/L〕(P<0.001).The mean variation of CK of the experimental group was higher than that of the control group〔0.17(0.11,0.18)U/L vs -0.01(-0.02,0.01) U/L〕(P<0.05),the mean variation of AST of the experimental group was higher than that of the control group〔(1.20±0.31) U/L vs (1.07±0.31)  U/L〕(P<0.001),the mean variation of TC of the experimental group was higher than that of the control group〔(-2.68±0.10) mmol/L vs(-0.25±0.00) mmol/L〕(P<0.001).Moreover,the experimental group also demonstrated higher left-hand grip strength 〔(-1.99±1.34) kg vs(1.18±1.77) kg〕 and higher right-hand grip strength 〔(-2.28±1.26) kg vs(1.10±1.80)kg〕(P<0.001).After the intervention of statins,there was no linear correlation of CK with the left- or right-hand grip strength within the intervention group(r=0.050,P=0.480;r=-0.105,P=0.141).But both left- and right-hand grip strength and TC were positively correlated(r=0.302,P<0.001;r=0.462,P<0.001).Conclusion Atorvastatin could slow the increase of age-related bone loss,increase BMD,and inhibit bone turnover,but might decrease the muscle strength of the upper limb significantly.Thus,the elderly taking atorvastatin should strengthen muscle strength training.

【Abstract】 Background Endometrial receptivity is a comprehensive condition that makes the endometrium receptive to normal embryo implantation.In recent years,ultrasonic research of endometrial receptivity has become a hot topic,but mainly focuses on endometrial thickness,echo and blood flow.With the development of ultrasonic technology,the tissue elastic properties of endometrium is expected to be a new direction in the study of endometrial receptivity.Objective To explore the value of real-time shear wave elastography(SWE) in evaluating endometrial receptivity by comparatively analyzing the elastic modulus of endometrium in receptive and proliferative phases measured quantitatively with real-time SWE.Methods  Participants were 80 women who underwent outpatient follicle monitoring for preparing for a healthy pregnancy in Wenzhou People's Hospital during January to December,2018.The mean echo type,thickness,and elastic modulus of receptive endometrium and proliferative endometrium measured with both real-time SWE and two-dimensional ultrasound were analyzed comparatively,and the relationship of mean thickness with elastic modulus was explored with Spearman correlation analysis.Results The endometrium of 80 women showed three-line sign in proliferative phase and homogenous hyperechoicity in receptive phase.Receptive endometrium had thicker mean endometrial thickness〔11.0(10.0,12.8) mm vs 7.0(6.0,8.0) mm〕 and lower mean elastic modulus〔(9.4±2.7) kPa vs(25.7±4.4) kPa〕 than proliferative endometrium (P<0.05).There was a negative correlation between the mean value of the endometrial thickness and elastic modulus(rs=-0.849,P<0.05).The mean elastic modulus varied significantly by echo types(P<0.05).Conclusion  Endometrial elasticity,thickness and type of echoes quantitatively measured by real-time SWE may indirectly reflect the temporal phase of endometrial mesenchymal,and may provide a new perspective for evaluating endometrial receptivity in infertility patients.
