【Abstract】 Background Simvastatin(SIM)is often clinically used for secondary prevention of cardio-cerebrovascular disease,but its effect on endogenous absorption of hematoma after intracerebral hemorrhage is still unclear.Objective  To study the efficacy and mechanism of SIM for endogenous absorption of hematoma in a mousse model of BV-2 encephalorrhagia inducted by red blood cells(RBCs).Methods This experiment was implemented from December 2017 to December 2018.Single-cell suspensions of well-cultured mouse BV-2 cells were prepared,and were divided into blank control group A,model group,SIM groups(0.312 5,0.625 0,1.250 0,2.500 0,5.000 0,10.000 0,20.000 0,40.000 0,and 80.000 0 μmol/L)according to the reagents added.MTT colorimetry was used to detect the effect of different concentrations of SIM on the survival rate of BV-2 cells.Immunofluorescence technique was used to observe the in vitro intracerebral hemorrhage model of RBCs phagocytosed by BV-2 cells.After modeling, it was divided into blank group(200 μ l MEM complete medium),model group(blank group + RBC),SIM group(model group + SIM).Flow cytometry was used to examine the effect of BV-2 cells on removing RBCs.Western blot was used to measure the effect of SIM on the expression levels of CD47,CD36,toll-like receptor 4(TLR4),peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ(PPARγ)and nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2(NRF2).Results MTT assay found that SIM≥5 μmol/L had a significant inhibitory effect on BV-2 cells(P<0.05).Immunofluorescence microscopy showed that RBCs were phagocytosed by BV-2 cells in all groups except the blank control group,indicating that the in vitro mouse model of intracerebral hemorrhage was successfully developed.Flow cytometry revealed that SIM groups had more RBCs phagocytosed by microglia cells compared with the model group(P<0.05).Western blot found that compared with the blank group,the expression levels of CD47,CD36,TLR4,PPARγ and NRF2 in the model group were significantly up-regulated(P<0.05),and in SIM groups,the expression levels of CD36,PPARγ and NRF2 were also significantly up-regulated,but those of CD47 and TLR4 were down-regulated significantly(P<0.05).Conclusion SIM may effectively promote the endogenous removal of the hematoma in a mousse model of BV-2 cells encephalorrhagia inducted by RBCs.The action mechanism may be related to the restrain of the expression of CD47 and TLR4 proteins,and the upregulation of the expression of CD36,PPARγand NRF2 proteins.

【Abstract】 Background At present,the severity of coronary artery lesions is mainly assessed by invasive coronary angiography-based SYNTAX score,and it is hard to predict slow flow during PCI.Finding a biomarker to accurately predict high-risk coronary lesions and the occurrence of slow flow has become one of the hot spots in cardiovascular research.Objective The present study is an analysis of the relationship of serum Adropin level with the severity of coronary artery disease (CAD) as well as slow flow during PCI in patients with non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS).Methods A total of 280 participants,240 with NSTE-ACS underwent PCI and 40 individuals with normal coronary angiography (control group) were prospectively enrolled during March 2016 to June 2018.According to the SYNTAX score,patients with NSTE-ACS were divided to high-risk subgroup (SYNTAX score≥33),medium-risk subgroup (22<SYNTAX score<33),and low-risk subgroup (SYNTAX score ≤ 22).The clinical data and serum Adropin level of all participants were collected.Univariate and multivariate regression analyses were performed to assess the relationship between Adropin level and SYNTAX score.ROC curve analysis of Adropin was carried out to explore its value in predicting high SYNTAX score(≥33) in NSTE-ACS patients.The corrected TIMI frame count (CTFC) was calculated for patients with slow flow during PCI,and the relationship between Adropin and CTFC was analyzed by Pearson correlation analysis.Results The serum Adropin level differed significantly across three subgroups of NSTE-ACS〔high-risk subgroup (2 357±821)ng/L,medium-risk subgroup (2 899±756)ng/L,and low-risk subgroup (3 177
±913)ng/L〕,and the control group 〔(3 688±966)ng/L〕(P<0.001).Pearson correlation analysis showed that the serum Adropin level was negatively correlated with SYNTAX score(r=-0.701,P<0.001).Multivariate Logistic regression analysis showed that low serum Adropin level was an independent predictor of high SYNTAX score(≥33) in NSTE-ACS patients〔OR=0.999,95%CI(0.998,1.000),P=0.007〕.The serum Adropin cut-off value at admission for predicting high SYNTAX score (≥33) based on ROC curve analysis was determined to be 2 295 ng/L,with a sensitivity of 84.4% and a specificity of 92.5%〔AUC=0.958,95%CI(0.936,0.980)〕.38 patients (15.8%) suffered from slow flow during PCI and had a lower mean Adropin level compared with control group (P=0.002).Pearson correlation analysis showed that the serum Adropin level was negatively correlated with CTFC(r=-0.796,P<0.001).Conclusion In patients with NSTE-ACS,serum Adropin level is negatively correlated with SYNTAX score.Low serum Adropin can predict high risk NSTE-ACS patients.Slow flow is more likely to occur in NSTE-ACS patient with lower serum Adropin level during PCI.

【Abstract】 Background ANCA-associated vasculitis(AAV) is very common in elderly people and typically affects the kidneys,manifesting as acute glomerulonephritis.The pathological characteristics of renal involvement are segmental necrotizing glomerulonephritis and crescentic nephritis.Previously,immunofluorescence examination was recommended to detect the deposition of oligoimmune complexes.However,in recent years,immune complex deposition in AAV detected by kidney immunofluorescence is not rare.Few studies have examined AAV with immune complex deposition in China.In elderly people,the clinical and pathological characteristics of the pathogenesis of AAV with immune complex deposition,as well as the response to treatment,are not completely clear.Objective To explore the clinical and pathological characteristics of AAV with renal immune complex deposition in elderly patients.Methods We performed a retrospective analysis of 56 AAV patients diagnosed by clinical pathology in Department of Nephrology,Zhongshan Hospital,Xiamen University,the First Affiliated Hospital of Xiamen University,and the 900th Hospital of Joint Logistic Support Force between January 2009 and December 2018.According to the status of immune complex deposition detected by immunofluorescence test and electron microscopy,we assigned 14 with immune complex deposition and 42 with oligoimmunocomplex deposition to immune complex deposition group,and oligoimmunocomplex deposition group,respectively.Both groups were treated with hormones and immunosuppressive agents.We compared the clinical manifestations,multiple system involvement,laboratory results,renal pathological characteristics and treatment response between the groups.Results There were no significant differences between the two groups in sex ratio,mean age,course of disease and BAVAS score,ANCA type distribution,prevalence of kidney,lung,skin,joint muscle and the central nervous system,serum BUN,Hb,ALB level,prevalence of crescents >50%,necrosis of glomerular capillary loop,and glomerulosclerosis(P>0.05).The levels of Scr,24-h urinary protein,the number of crescent bodies,and interstitial fibrosis in the immune complex deposition group were higher than those in the oligoimmune complex group(P<0.05).After 6 months of treatment,the remission rate was 9/14 in the immune complex deposition group and 76.2%(32/42) in the oligoimmune complex group,showing no significant difference(χ2=0.273,P=0.601).Conclusion Kidney pathology in elderly AAV patients with immune complex deposition often shows more serve renal damage as well as more crescents with a greater degree of interstitial fibrosis.

【Abstract】 Background Osteonecrosis of femoral head(ONFH) is a refractory orthopedic disease.Due to delayed early diagnosis and rapid collapse process,many patients may inevitably undergo total hip arthroplasty.Therefore,it is of great practical significance to find a scientific method to diagnose ONFH.Objective To analyze the plasma advanced glycation end products(AGEs) in patients with ONFH(ARCOⅡ-Ⅳ) and to study its correlation with the development of ONFH.Methods ONFH inpatients(consisting of ARCO Ⅱ,Ⅲand Ⅳ based on imaging data) and healthy adult physical examinees were recruited from No.3 Orthopaedic Department,and Physical examination Center,the First Affiliated Hospital of Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine,respectively,during June to December 2016.ELISA-detected plasma AGEs were compared between ONFH inpatients and healthy controls,and were compared in ONFH inpatients by causes of ONFH,ARCO stage,pre- and post-collapse stages.Results The mean plasma AGEs concentration in ONFH inpatients〔(2.87±0.73)mg/L〕 was greater than that of the healthy controls〔(2.33±0.94)mg/L〕(t=3.692,P<0.001).The AGEs concentration varied significantly among ARCOⅡ,Ⅲand Ⅳ patients(P<0.05).Those with ARCOⅡshowed lower mean AGEs concentration than those with ARCOⅣ(P<0.05).The AGEs concentration also varied significantly among the patients either at pre-collapse or post-collapse stage of ONFH(P<0.05).Furthermore,the AGEs concentration changed significantly according to the causes of ONFH(P<0.05).In particular,patients with trauma-induced ONFH had higher mean AGEs concentration than those with alcohol-induced,steroid-induced or idiopathic ONFH(P<0.05).According to the results of Spearman correlation analysis,AGEs concentration was positively correlated with ARCO stage(rs=0.274,P=0.007).ROC curve analysis showed that the AUC of AGEs in idnetifying the collapse of ONFH was 0.651(0.567,0.729),with 72.45% sensitivity and 59.09% specificity when the cut-off value was determined as 2.419 mg/L.Conclusion Plasma AGEs concentration is closely related to the progress of ONFH,which may be used as a reference for diagnosis of ONFH and disease monitoring.

【Abstract】 Background Antiretroviral therapy (ART) prolongs the life expectancy of people living with human immunodeficiency virus(HIV)/ acquired immune deficiency syndrome(AIDS).However,there are limited data on the long-term immune reconstitution in such patients after ART.The ratio of CD4+ T lymphocytes (CD4 cells) to CD8+ T lymphocytes (CD8 cells) has been used as a crucial marker for the assessment of immune status in recent years.Understanding post-ART immune reconstitution evaluated by immune markers(including CD4∶CD8 ratio) in such patients is of great importance,which provides clinicians with reference indicators for the management and treatment of this disease.Objective To investigate the immune reconstitution after ART in HIV/AIDS patients.Methods Participants were 98 HIV/AIDS outpatients consecutively recruited from Department of Infectious Diseases,Public Health Clinical Center of Chengdu in July 2014.All of them received 48-month ART using a regimen based on tenofovir disoproxil,lamivudine and efavirenz.Clinical data were collected,among which immune markers at baseline,and at the end of the 6th,12th,24th,36th,and 48th months of treatment were analyzed in detail.Correlation analysis was performed on the CD4∶CD8 ratio at the endpoint event.Results At baseline,and at 6,12,24,36,and 48 months after ART,CD4 cell count,CD8 cell count,CD4 cell recovery rate,CD4∶CD8 ratio,CD4∶CD8 ratio normalization rate and rate of T cells with multiple reconstitutions were all significantly different(P<0.05).CD4∶CD8 ratio differed significantly across time points(at baseline,and at 6,12,24,36,and 48 months after ART) in the subgroup of patients with baseline CD4 cell count ≤200 cells/μl,201-349 cells/μl,or ≥350 cells/μl (P<0.001).The rates of CD4∶CD8 ratio normalization at baseline and at each follow-up time point of post-ART showed no significant differences (P>0.05).At the end of ART,the rates of CD4 cell count ≥500 cells/μl,CD4∶CD8 ratio normalization,and T cells with multiple reconstitutions were 59.8% (58/97),22.7% (22/97),and 19.6% (19/97),respectively.The CD4∶ CD8 ratio at 48 months after ART was positively correlated with baseline CD4 cell count (rs=0.269,P=0.01),and baseline CD4∶ CD8 ratio (rs=0.592,P<0.001),and was negatively correlated with baseline CD8 cell count (rs=-0.355,P<0.001),but was independent of age (rs=0.129,P=0.21),time from diagnosis to ART initiation (rs=-0.141,P=0.17),and viral load (rs=0.145,P=0.15).Conclusion HIV/AIDS patients with long-term ART still had poor immune reconstitution.The CD4∶ CD8 ratio was related to the baseline immune level,but needs to be verified by large-sample and long-term studies.

【Abstract】 Background Studies have shown that chronic diseases are closely related to psychological emotions.Most previous studies focused on the relationship between individual chronic diseases and anxiety and depression,and there is a lack of systematic research on the relationship between chronic disease burden and anxiety and depression in elderly patients.Objective To explore the relationship between chronic disease burden and anxiety and depression in elderly patients.?Methods From March to June in 2018,103 elderly patients were enrolled continuously from the Department of Geriatric Medicine in Tongji Hospital.Chronic disease burden was measured with Charlson Comorbidity Index (CCI).CCI scores≤3 indicated low chronic disease burden.CCI scores>3 indicated high chronic disease burden.Anxiety was measured with the Generalized Anxiety Disorder-7 (GAD-7).Depression was measured with the Patient Health Questionnaire-9 (PHQ-9).The incidence of anxiety and depression in elderly patients with different degrees of chronic disease burden was compared.Results The GAD-7 scores ranged from 0 to 21 with a mean of (3.7±4.8).PHQ-9 scores ranged from 0 to 25 with a mean of (5.3±5.3).The results of assessments showed that a total of 42 (40.8%) patients exhibited symptoms of depression;28 (27.2%) patients exhibited symptoms of anxiety;and 22 (21.4%) patients exhibited comorbid anxiety and depression.Low disease burden group had 54(52.4%)cases,while high disease burden group contained 49 (47.6%)cases.There was no significant difference of anxiety and depression in two groups (P>0.05).There was no significant difference in the incidence of anxiety and depression between patients with different genders and age (P>0.05).Conclusion There is a high incidence of anxiety and depression in the elderly inpatients,so the medical staffs need to pay more attention to their mental health.In our study,no significant correlation was found between the disease burden of elderly inpatients and anxiety and depression,so we suspect that negative emotions have little impact on the elderly patients with multiple chronic diseases.

【Abstract】 Background The impairment of depressive disorders is difficult to understand appropriately due to atypical manifestations commonly found in the diseased teenagers,as well as insufficient awareness of the disease in the diseased teenagers and their family members as well as the society.Even if some want to receive treatment,they often could not obtain standard treatment due to the impeding by their family members.Objective To explore the effect of information-motivation-behavioral skills(IMB) model-based health education among the parents of depressive disorder teenagers.Methods The parents of 90 teenagers with depressive disorders treated in Department of Psychosomatic Medicine,the Second Affiliated Hospital of Nanchang University were sampled from June 2018 to December 2018,and were randomly divided into group A (n=45,routine health education) and group B (n=45,IMB model-based health education).The Zung Self-rating Anxiety Scale(SAS),Zung Self-rating Depression Scale(SDS) and Self-perceived Burden Scale(SBS) were used to investigate the prevalence of anxiety and depression,and level of self-perceived burden,respectively,at baseline and at the end of the 12-week intervention.A self-designed questionnaire was used to assess the knowledge of depressive disorders at the end of intervention.Results The mean standard scores of SAS and SDS decreased obviously in both groups after intervention(P<0.05),and greater declines were found in group B (P<0.05) although the baseline levels in the two groups were similar(P>0.05).At baseline,there were no significant differences in the mean scores of physical burden,economic burden,emotional burden,family burden,social burden and psychological burden induced by caring between the two groups(P>0.05),but the mean scores of these 6 types of burdens were lowered more significantly in group B after intervention(P<0.05).Furthermore,the mean scores of these 6 types of burdens declined obviously in both groups after intervention(P<0.05).The post-intervention mean scores of levels of knowledge of depressive disorders,family management techniques and subsequent consultation criteria in group B were all higher than those in group A(P<0.05).Conclusion The IMB model-based health education may improve the negative emotions,levels of self-perceived burden,knowledge of depressive disorders,and skills of depressive management in parents of teenagers with depressive disorders.Moreover,the family management plan for the teenagers made by the parents may also be improved,and the level of intention of receiving further treatment of the teenagers may be increased,too.

【Abstract】 Background Overweight and obesity have been proved to be important risk factors of chronic diseases such as diabetes,hypertension,arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease and tumor.According to the latest data,the total number of overweight and obesity population in China is close to 1/4 of the total population.Timely knowing the prevalence of overweight and obesity in different regions may provide theoretical basis for formulating prevention and control strategies of obesity and other chronic diseases.Objective To investigate the prevalence of overweight,obesity and central obesity in community-living residents in Pinggu District of Beijing,to provide a science-based strategy for local control of obesity-related diseases as early as possible.Methods This study was conducted between June 2013 and September 2014 in a multistage random sample of community-living residents(aged 25-75 years old) from Pinggu District by Pinggu Hospital,Beijing Friendship Hospital,Capital Medical University and Peking University People's Hospital.Data including sex,age,place of residence,overweight(24 kg/m2≤BMI <28 kg/m2),obesity(28 kg/m2≤BMI<35 kg/m2),severe obesity(BMI≥35 kg/m2) and central obesity(waistline≥
90 cm for men,≥85 cm for women) were collected,and the prevalence of the latter three was calculated.The data were weighted for statistical analysis by sex and age group as well as geographical residence with the reciprocals of the ratios of sex,age group,and geographical residence as weights.Results A total of 4 002 cases participated in the questionnaire survey and all of them(100.00%) responded effectively.After weighting,the total cases numbered 436 519,and the prevalence of overweight,obesity,severe obesity,and central obesity was 39.64%(173 023/436 519) 〔95%CI(39.49%,39.78%)〕,26.30%
(114 808/436 519) 〔95%CI(26.16%,26.43%)〕,1.87%(8 180/436 519) 〔95%CI(1.82%,1.91%)〕,and 47.00%
(205 140/436 519) 〔95%CI(46.85%,47.14%)〕,respectively.Men had higher prevalence of overweight,but lower prevalence of obesity,severe obesity,and central obesity compared with women(P<0.05).The prevalence of overweight,obesity,severe obesity and central obesity differed significantly according to age groups(P<0.05).Urban residence was associated with higher prevalence of overweight obesity and central obesity but lower prevalence of severe obesity(P<0.05).Multivariate Logistic regression analysis showed that age and residence were independent influencing factors of central obesity(P<0.05).Conclusion The prevalence of obesity,overweight and central obesity in community-living residents in this district is high,which is higher than that of the national level.Age and residence affect the occurrence of central obesity.As the risk of central obesity increases with age,the prevention of central obesity should be paid more attention in men since young and middle adulthood,and in women since the menopause(over 45 years old).Middle-aged and young people are the key populations for the prevention and control of overweight,obesity and central obesity.
