【Abstract】 Background Compared with the traditional obesity index,lipid accumulation product(LAP) is a new index that can better predict the risk of type 2 diabetes.In the population in northern China,LAP also shows high accuracy in predicting the risk of type 2 diabetes.However,it is unclear whether LAP also has high accuracy in predicting type 2 diabetes risk in populations in southern China,because the triglyceride(TC) and waist circumstance vary obviously in southern and northern populations due to significant differences in climate,lifestyle and eating habit.Objective To evaluate the predictive value of LAP for type 2 diabetes risk in community-dwelling people in Pearl River Delta.Methods By stratified multistage random sampling,828 community-dwelling residents from Pearl River Delta were enrolled from July to September 2017.They received a questionnaire survey,anthropometric tests,and laboratory examinations.According to quartiles of LAP,they were divided into group Q1(LAP<11.22),group Q2(LAP:11.22-22.05),group Q3(LAP:22.06-44.50) and group Q4(LAP>44.50).Binary Logistic regression models were used to assess the relationship between LAP and type 2 diabetes.Receiver operating characteristic(ROC) curve analysis was used to analyze diagnostic value of BMI,WHR and LAP for type 2 diabetes.Results Excluding 18 cases of incomplete research data,810 cases were finally included in the survey,including 203 cases in group Q1,202 cases in group Q2,202 cases in group Q3 and 203 cases in group Q4.LAP was positively correlated with fasting blood glucose,and crude prevalence rate of type 2 diabetes(P<0.05).The risk of type 2 diabetes in group Q4 was 12.22 times higher than that in group Q1〔OR=12.22,95%CI(2.83,52.67),P<0.001〕.When controlling for age,gender,marital status and education level,the risk of type 2 diabetes in group Q4 was 6.65 times higher than that in group Q1〔adjusted OR=6.65,95%CI(1.49,29.77),P<0.05〕.After controlling age,gender,marital status,education level,physical exercise,systolic and diastolic blood pressure,the risk of type 2 diabetes in the group Q4 was 5.04 times higher than that in group Q1〔adjusted OR=5.04,95%CI(1.07,23.64),P<0.05〕.As for the predictive effect,the area under the curve of LAP was superior to that of BMI(Z=-2.210,P=0.027).The sensitivity of lap to predict the risk of type 2 diabetes was 85.37%,and the best critical value was 25.485.Conclusion LAP is statistically significant associated with the prevalence of type 2 diabetes in populations in Pearl River Delta.LAP might perform better in predicting type 2 diabetes risk than BMI,but its performance might be similar to that of WHR.

【Abstract】 Background Bronchiectasis is a common and frequently-occurring respiratory disease,which is mostly caused by infection.Human secreted phospholipase A2 type X(sPLA2-X)plays an important role in accelerating the occurrence and development of an inflammatory response.However,whether serum sPLA2-X and important inflammatory indicators such as procalcitonin(PCT),C-reactive protein(CRP),inducible nitric oxide synthase(iNOS),and interleukin(IL)-6,IL-17,IL-33,are correlated or not in patients with bronchiectasis and infection,has not been reported.Objective To study the association of serum sPLA2-X with PCT,CRP,IL-6,iNOS,IL-17 and IL-33 in serum in patients with bronchiectasis and infection,and based on this,to further evaluate its association with this disease.Methods Participants were enrolled from Guizhou Provincial People's Hospital between February 2017 and January 2019,including 47 with bronchiectasis and infection from Department of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine(case group),and 21 healthy physical examinees from Physical Examination Center(control group).Demographic data of the two groups were collected and compared.Also,laboratory findings(such as serum sPLA2-X,white blood cell count,PCT,CRP,iNOS,IL-6,IL-17 and IL-33)of the control group(examined on the day of physical examination)were compared with those of the case group measured before treatment(on the day of admission)and after treatment(on the day prior to discharge),respectively.The association of pre-treatment serum sPLA2-X with PCT,CRP,iNOS,IL-6,IL-17 and IL-33 in the case group was analyzed.Results Compared with the healthy control group,the mean levels of serum sPLA2-X,PCT,CRP,iNOS,IL-17,white blood cell count,IL-6 and IL-33 in the case group before treatment were all significantly higher(P<0.05),after treatment,although the former five were still much higher(P<0.05),the latter three decreased to the levels similar to those of the controls(P>0.05).The mean levels of the aforementioned eight indicators decreased significantly in the case group(P<0.05).Serum sPLA2-X was positively correlated with PCT,CRP,iNOS,IL-6,IL-17,and IL-33 in the case group before treatment(r = 0.526 2,0.640 1,0.550 7,0.516 8,0.609 9,0.357 4,
P<0.01).Conclusion In patients with bronchiectasis and infection,serum sPLA2-X is elevated and positively correlated with PCT,CRP,iNOS,IL-6,IL-17,IL-33,indicating that it may be associated with the disease,and might be used as an important indicator for evaluating the severity of the disease.

【Abstract】 Background Since 2014,Chengdu has continued to promote the construction of Chest Pain Center to improve the treatment of acute coronary syndrome(ACS).At present,studies have reported a guideline-practice gap in the clinical diagnosis and treatment of patients with non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome(NSTE-ACS).However,there is no research about the guideline-practice gap in the clinical diagnosis and treatment and its influencing factors in Chengdu.Objective To explore the guideline-practice gap of NSTE-ACS treatment with the management of Chest Pain Center in Chengdu and analyze its influencing factors.Methods  A multicenter retrospective cross-sectional study was conducted among 1 022 cases of NSTE-ACS receiving inpatient treatment in 11 hospitals with a well-constructed or under construction Chest Pain Center(7 with a primary level center) in Chengdu during 2017 to 2018.General information,treatment strategies,status of percutaneous coronary intervention(PCI)within the recommended time,and discharged medication of these patients were collected from the Chest Pain Center Data Reporting Platform and the electronic medical record system of these 11 hospitals.According to the risk criteria for invasive treatment strategies in the 2016 Chinese Guidelines for the Management of Non-ST-segment Elevation Acute Coronary Syndrome,the patients were divided into low-risk(141 cases ),medium-risk(178 cases),high-risk(668 cases),and extremely high-risk(35 cases) groups.Results A total of 629(61.5%) cases underwent invasive diagnosis and treatment(388 underwent PCI).The rate of receiving invasive diagnosis and treatment in low-risk group was higher than that in medium-risk group but was lower than that in high-risk group(P<0.05),and so was that in extremely high-risk group(P<0.05).Binary Logistic regression analysis showed that NSTE-ACS type and history of coronary heart disease were influencing factors for undergoing PCI within the recommended time(P<0.05).Compared with medium-risk group or extremely high-risk group,the rates of discharged with aspirin(ASA) and statins were lower in low-risk group but were higher in high-risk group(P<0.05).The rates of discharged with P2Y12 inhibitors and dual antiplatelet therapy(DAPT)in extremely high-risk group were higher than those in low-risk or medium-risk group,but were lower than those in high-risk group(P<0.05).The rate of discharged with beta-receptor blockers in medium-risk group was higher than that of low-risk group,and extremely high-risk group,but was lower than that of high-risk group(P<0.05).The rates of discharged with angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors/angiotensin receptor blockers,and optimal medical therapy(OMT)in high-risk group were lower than those in low-risk group,meanwhile higher than those in middle-risk group and extremely high-risk group(P<0.05).Binary Logistic regression analysis showed that diastolic blood pressure at admission and the level of Chest Pain Center were the influencing factors of OMT as discharge medication(P<0.05).Conclusion There are guideline-practice gaps in the invasive diagnosis and treatment rate(61.5%),PCI rate(38.0%),and secondary preventive medication P2Y12 inhibitor(74.0%),ASA(73.4%),and statins(86.7%)in NATE-ACS patients in Chengdu.Patients with unstable angina pectoris and without a history of coronary heart disease are not suggested to undergo PCI within the guideline-recommended time.Elevated diastolic blood pressure at admission and management by the primary Chest Pain Center are factors that promote patients discharged with OMT.

【Abstract】 Background Liver fibrosis is a pathological change common to various chronic liver diseases.During this process,transforming growth factor-β1(TGF-β1) is significantly increased,which induces the activation of hepatic stellate cells(HSC),promoting process of liver fibrosis.NLRC5,the largest member of NLR family,is an important negative regulator of inflammatory pathway.There is evidence that NLRC5 plays a key role in the development and reversal of liver fibrosis by regulating inflammatory signals and liver fibrosis response.Objective To investigate the role of NLRC5 in the activation of HSCs induced by TGF-β1 and the reversal of liver fibrosis.Methods The experiment was implemented from March to July 2018.A total of 24 8-week-old male C57BL/6 mice(body weight 15-20 g) were selected and equally divided into experimental group,normal control group and reversal group using a table of random numbers.After the liver fibrosis model was established in experimental and reversal groups,the mice in all groups were sacrificed,and liver tissues were taken out for measuring liver histological changes with HE staining,Masson trichrome staining and α-smooth muscle actin(α-SMA) immunohistochemistry,respectively.NLRC5 and its mRNA,phosphorylated inhibitor protein αIκBα(P-IκBα),I κ B α,cytoplasmic p65 and nuclear p65 were detected.LX-2 cells were cultured in vitro and were divided into control group,TGF-β1 group and TGF-β1+MDI group.The levels of α-SMA,Col1α1 and Col1α1 mRNA,and NLRC5 and NLRC5 mRNA in LX-2 cells were detected.After being treated with siRNA,activated LX-2 cells were divided into NLRC5-siRNA group,control-siRNA group and normal cell group.NLRC5 and its mRNA,α-SMA,Col1α1,P-IκBα,IκBα,cytoplasmic and nuclear p65 were detected.Results The detection using HE staining showed that in the normal control group,hepatic cell cords were neat and orderly,without necrotic degeneration and inflammatory cell infiltration,but in the experimental group,potty necrosis,regeneration,steatosis and ballooning degeneration occurred.And in the reversal group,the liver restored ruddy and the structure tended to be normal.The detection with Masson trichrome staining demonstrated that compared with the normal control group,significantly increased blue collagen fibers were observed in the experimental group under the light microscopy,and the increase of blue collagen fibers was also seen in the reversal group but to a lesser degree.The proportion of α-SMA positive cells in the experimental group was higher than that in the normal control group and the reversal group(P<0.05).The mean levels of NLRC5 and NLRC5 mRNA in liver tissue of experimental group were higher than those of normal control group and reversal group(P<0.05).The experimental group showed higher mean levels of P-IκBα and nuclear p65 and lower mean level of cytoplasmic p65 in the liver tissue compared with normal control and reversal groups(P<0.05).The mean levels of α-SMA,Col1α1 and Col1α1 mRNA of LX-2 cells in TGF-β1 group were higher than those in control group and TGF-β1+MDI group(P<0.05).The mean levels of NLRC5 and NLRC5 mRNA in LX-2 cells of TGF-β1 group were higher than those of control group and TGF-β1+MDI group(P<0.05).The mean NLRC5 level in the NLRC5-siRNA group was lower than that in the Control-siRNA group〔(0.679±0.045)vs(1.260±0.071)〕(P<0.001).The mean levels of α-SMA,Col1α1 and Col1α1 mRNA in the NLRC5-siRNA group were lower than those in the Control-siRNA group,but were higher than those in the normal cell group(P<0.05).Compared to either normal cell group or Control-siRNA group,NLRC5-siRNA group showed higher mean levels of P-IκBα and nuclear p65,and lower mean level of cytoplasmic p65(P<0.05).Conclusion NLRC5 can regulate and interfere with key processes related to liver fibrosis by regulating TGF-β1-induced HSC activation and ECM synthesis.It may play a key role in regulating the progression and reversal of liver fibrosis through the NF-κB signaling pathway

【Abstract】 Background Drug resistance of bacteria has always been a global problem.The resistance of bacteria related to perforated appendicitis in children to commonly used antibacterial drugs is consistently changing,which influences the therapeutic effect and poses challenges to clinical drug selection.Objective To explore the transition of bacterial drug resistance in children with perforated appendicitis and analyze the changes of antibacterial drug regimens in order to give advice rationally on clinical antibiotics strategy.Methods The clinical data of 461 children with perforated appendicitis treated in Ningbo Women and Children's Hospital from January 2013 to December 2018 were retrospectively collected.According to the time they were admitted to the hospital,children were divided into Group 1(G1,from January 2013 to December 2015)(n=214) and Group 2(G2,from January 2016 to December 2018)(n=247).The results of bacterial culture and drug susceptibility test of abdominal pus from appendicitis surgery,and antibacterial drug regimens were analyzed.Results Of the 461 patients,451 cases had bacterial cultures of abdominal pus,and 10 cases had no bacterial cultures(the reason was that the perforated appendix pus was too few to collect).Among the bacterial culture results,the number of detected strains of Escherichia coli,Pseudomonas aeruginosa,and Streptococcus anginosus were the top three in both G1 and G2,accounting for 60.8%(129/212),10.4%(22/212),and 6.1%(13/212)in G1,respectively,and 59.5%(163/274),12.0%(33/274),and 4.7%(13/274)in G2,respectively.The resistance of Escherichia coli to cefazolin,maxipime,and macrodantin in G1 and G2 was statistically significant(P<0.05).There were no significant differences in the resistance of Escherichia coli to ampicillin sulbactam,aztreonam,gentamicin,cotrimoxazole,ceftriaxone,ampicillin,ciprofloxacin,ertapenem,amikacin,cefotetan,imipenem,tobramycin,piperacillin tazobactam,ceftazidime,and levofloxacin between G1 and G2(P>0.05).The resistance of Pseudomonas aeruginosa to ampicillin sulbactam,cotrimoxazole,ceftriaxone,and ampicillin in G1 and G2 was statistically significant(P<0.05).There were no significant differences in resistance of Pseudomonas aeruginosa to cefazolin,ciprofloxacin,cefotetan,macrodantin and imipenem between G1 and G2(P>0.05).Among the anti-bacterial strategies,the top three in G1 were ceftriaxone sodium+meroxicillin sodium/sulbactam sodium,cefodizime sodium+piperacillin sodium and sulbactam sodium needle+metronidazole sodium chloride,and ceftriaxone sodium+meroxicillin sodium/sulbactam sodium+metronidazole disodium phosphate,while the top three in G2 were ceftazidime+metronidazole disodium phosphate,imipenem/cisastatin sodium+metronidazole disodium phosphate,and cefotiam needle+azlocillin sodium for injection.Compared with the G1,the use of ceftriaxone decreased in G2,while the use of carbapenems(imipenem) increased.Conclusion The problem of drug resistance of bacteria should not be ignored.Ceftriaxone and other drugs have been questioned as the first choice for empirical antibiotics in the treatment of perforated appendicitis,while imipenem is increasingly being used widely as a third-line drug.The drug susceptibility test result is meaningful for guiding the empirical drug application,as well as the dynamic transition of drug resistance.
