【Abstract】 Background The depression disorder is one of the most common mood disorders,with characteristics of high morbidity,recurrence rate,disability rate and mortality,imposing a huge burden of disease on the patients,even leading to suicide.However,means for rapidly screening of suicidal behavior in patients with depressive disorder are relatively limited.Objective To develop a simple prediction model for suicidal behavior in patients with depressive disorder using identified associated psychosocial factors of suicidal behavior,offering a reference for the prevention and treatment of suicide behavior in such patients.Methods By use of cluster sampling,depressive disorder patients treated in the Second Affiliated Hospital of Nanchang University and the First Affiliated Hospital of Nanchang University of Nanchang from January to December 2018 were recruited.The General Information Questionnaire developed by our research group,Zung Self-rating Depression Scale(SDS),Zung Self-Rating Anxiety Scale(SAS)and Landeiman Social Support Scale were used to gather sociodemographic data,prevalence of depression and anxiety and social support information,respectively.Multivariate logistic regression was used to screen the risk factors for suicidal behaviors.Risk scoring measuring the effect of factors on suicidal behaviors was used to develop the prediction model.Results The survey obtained a response rate of 93.60%(2 090/2 233).The prevalence of suicide attempt was 6.79%(142/2 090).Frequent smoking,heavy drinking,having one or more depressive episodes,having one or more hospitalization due to depressive disorder,presence of coexisting anxiety symptoms,psychotic symptoms,and suicidal ideas,family history of mental disorders,antidepressant use,and prevalence of other internal and surgical diseases were associated with a high risk of suicide attempts(P<0.05).Multivariate Logistic regression analysis showed that the number of previous depressive episodes≥1〔OR=4.308,95%CI(3.547,5.232)〕,coexisting anxiety symptoms〔OR=2.329,95%CI(1.201,4.518)〕,coexisting psychotic symptoms〔OR=2.492,95%CI(1.448,4.287)〕,coexisting suicidal ideas 〔OR=4.044,95%CI(2.305,7.096)〕,and high SAS standard score〔OR=1.036,95%CI(1.003,1.071)〕 were risk factors for suicide attempts(P<0.05),while antidepressant use〔OR=0.110,95%CI(0.057,0.212)〕was associated with decreased risk of suicidal attempts(P<0.05).The risk score model established based on Logistic regression results is:risk score=40.56×previous depressive episodes+23.50×coexisting anxiety+25.36×coexisting psychotic symptoms+38.81×coexisting suicidal idea-61.25×antidepressant+1.00×SAS standard score.The AUC of the model in predicting suicide was 0.920〔95%CI(0.907,0.931)〕,and when the cut-off value was determined as 193.23,the Youden's index was 0.7,reaching the maximum value,with a sensitivity of 76.8%,and a specificity of 94.2%.Conclusion The prevalence of suicide attempts in patients with depressive disorder is high,the number of previous depressive episodes≥1,coexisting anxiety symptoms,coexisting psychotic symptoms,coexisting suicidal ideas,and high SAS standard score were risk factors for suicide attempts. The risk score prediction model based on Logistic regression was 76.8% in sensitivity and 94.2% in specificity.

【Abstract】 Background Cough variant asthma (CVA) is an important cause of chronic cough,and pathophysiological features of the disease appear to be similar to typical asthma.Being recognized as the early stage of asthma,CVA is recommended to be treated with anti-inflammatory agents in combination with bronchodilators as early as possible.However,the effect and mechanism of inhaled corticosteroids and β2 agonists in the treatment of CVA has not been elucidated.Objective To observe the overall efficacy of salmeterol/fluticasone,and its impact on pulmonary function,airway inflammatory markers〔percentage of peripheral blood eosinophils (BER),serum eosinophil cationic protein(ECP),interleukin 5(IL-5)
and MUC5AC〕 and recurrence rate in CVA patients.Methods 52 patients with CVA in ictal phase treated in The Third Affiliated Hospital of Luohe Medical College during June 2016 to December 2017 were recruited and were equally randomized into the control group(orally administered compound methoxyphenamine capsules) and observation group(inhaled fluticasone propionate/salmeterol xinafoate powder).Both groups were treated for 8 weeks,and were followed up for 24 weeks (8-week treatment plus subsequent 16 weeks without the above-mentioned treatment).Main outcome measures for the overall efficacy were changes in daytime and nighttime cough symptom scores,FEV1,peak expiratory flow(PEF),percentage of peripheral blood BER,ECP,IL-5 and MUC5AC at the end of 8th and 24th weeks in comparison with the baseline status.Quality of life was measured by the Mandarin Chinese Version of the Leicester Cough Questionnaire(LCQ-MC) at baseline,and at the end of 8th and 24th weeks of intervention.Adverse reactions during treatment and recurrence rate during follow-up were recorded.Results Except 2 cases in the control group and 3 cases in the observation group who dropped out of the study or were lost to follow up,the other cases were included for final analysis.At the end of 8-week treatment,the observation group showed a higher overall response rate than the control group〔95.6%(22/23) vs 75.0%(18/24)〕 (P=0.047).The mean daytime and nighttime cough symptom scores of the observation group were all lower than those of the control group at the end of 8th and 24th weeks of intervention(P<0.05).In both groups,the mean daytime and nighttime cough symptom scores decreased after intervention.Specifically,the mean daytime and nighttime cough symptom scores at the end of the 8th week of intervention were much lower compared with the baseline scores,and compared with the scores at the end of 24 weeks of intervention(P<0.05).In both groups,mean scores of LCQ-MC and its three physical,psychological and social domains increased after intervention,specifically,mean scores of LCQ-MC and physical,psychological and social domains at the end of the 8th week of intervention were much higher compared with the baseline levels,and compared with the levels at the end of the 24th week of intervention(P<0.05).The observation group showed higher mean scores of LCQ-MC and physical,psychological and social domains than the control group at the end of 8 and 24 weeks of intervention(P<0.05).At the end of the 8th and 24th weeks of intervention,the ΔFEV1 in the observation group was greater than that in the control group (P<0.05).In both groups,mean PEF increased after intervention.Specifically,mean PEF at the end of 8 weeks of intervention was much higher compared with the baseline level,and compared with the level at the end of 24 weeks of intervention(P<0.05).At the end of the 8th week of intervention,the mean PEF of the observation group was higher than that of the control group(P<0.05).Compared with the control group,the observation group demonstrated lower mean percentage of peripheral blood BER,ECP,IL-5 and MUC5AC at the 8th week of intervention,and demonstrated lower mean IL-5 at the 24th week of intervention(P<0.05).In the observation group,the mean percentage of peripheral blood BER,ECP,IL-5 and MUC5AC at the 8th week of intervention were lower than the baseline levels,and were lower than the levels at the 24th week of intervention(P<0.05).The incidence of adverse reactions in the observation group and control group was 13.0% (3/23) and 8.3% (2/24),respectively,without significant difference (P>0.05).The recurrence rate of the observation group was 26.1% (6/23),which was lower than that of the control group 〔58.3% (14/24)〕(P<0.05).Conclusion Inhaling fluticasone propionate/salmeterol xinafoate powder provides further improvements in cough symptoms,quality of life,pulmonary function and airway inflammation in patients with CVA,and may delay the decline of pulmonary functions,rebound of inflammatory markers as well as CVA recurrence caused by the discontinuation of the therapy.

【Abstract】 Background 20% to 40% of patients with diabetes clinically develop diabetic kidney disease(DKD).The main clinical manifestations of DKD are trace proteinuria and negative changes in renal function.The glomerular filtration rate(GFR) is an indicator of kidney function.In diabetic patients,the relationship of renal function with interventricular septal thickness(IVST) has been confirmed,but its relationship with left ventricular wall thickness(LVWT) is not clear.Objective To investigate the development of DKD in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.Methods A retrospective analysis was performed on the clinical and laboratory data of patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus who received treatment in 2008 and 120-month follow-up(as of December 31,2018) from Chengdu Fifth People's Hospital.Those with significantly increased albuminuria 〔defined as 24-hour urinary albumin excretion>500 mg/d and GFR<50 ml/min〕 and those without during the study period were assigned to DKD group,and non-DKD group,respectively.Kaplan-Meier method was used for survival analysis.Log-rank test was used to compare the survival status.Multivariate Logistic regression analysis was used to analysis the influencing factors associated with DKD.ROC analysis was conducted to estimate the value of IVST and LVWT in predicting the development of DKD.Results A total of 178 were included and 48 of them(26.9%) developed DKD.Compared with those without DKD,those with DKD showed similar sex ratio,mean age,BMI,total cholesterol,LDL,BUN,Scr,sUA,hemoglobin,and HbA1c(P>0.05),but had longer mean duration of diabetes,higher mean systolic blood pressure,fasting blood glucose,LVWT and IVST,and mean lower HDL(P<0.05).The result of multivariate Logistic regression analysis suggested that IVST 〔OR=4.577,95%CI(2.280,9.188)〕,and LVWT 〔OR=3.805,95%CI(1.917,7.553)〕 were independently associated with the occurrence of DKD(P<0.05).Log-rank test results showed that increased IVST was associated with higher incidence of DKD either in those with hypertension (n=47)or in those without hypertension (n=131)(P<0.05),and so was increased LVWT(P<0.05).Correlation analysis showed that LVWT and IVST were positively correlated with 24-hour urinary albumin excretion(P<0.001),and were negatively correlated with GFR(P<0.001).ROC curve analysis showed that the AUC of IVST in the prediction of the development of DKD was 0.824,with 70.00% sensitivity and 73.64% specificity when the optimal cutoff value was determined as 12.5 mm.And the AUC of LVWT was 0.721,with 60.91% sensitivity and 67.27% specificity when the optimal cutoff value was determined as 11.5 mm.Conclusion Longer duration of diabetes,elevated systolic blood pressure and fasting blood glucose,decreased HDL,increased LVWT and IVST were found to be associated with the development of DKD in type 2 diabetes,among which increased LVWT and IVST may be independent predictors for DKD in type 2 diabetes mellitus.

【Abstract】 Background Diabetic nephropathy(DN)is one of the serious complications of type 2 diabetes mellitus(T2DM).Previous studies have suggested that C1q/TNF-related protein-3(CTRP3)may play a role in the development of DN.However,the relationship between CTRP3 and DN remains unclear.Objective To investigate the relationships of serum CTRP3 with DN and associated metabolic parameters.Methods Fifty-four patients with T2DM(T2DM group),55 with type 2 diabetic nephropathy(DN group) from Binzhou Medical University Hospital,and 55 healthy people (control group) were enrolled from July 2017 to June 2018.The three groups were tested for metabolic parameters.Moreover,ELISA was adopted to detect the concentrations of CTRP3,interleukin 6(IL-6),tumor necrosis factor-α(TNF-α),and adiponectin(APN).Pearson correlation test was used for correlation analysis.Multiple linear regression was used to analyze the influencing factors of CTRP3 in each group.And receiver operating characteristic curve (ROC)was plotted to analyze the ability of CTRP3 in distinguishing disease status.And receiver operating characteristic curve (ROC)was plotted to analyze the ability of CTRP3 in distinguishing DN and T2DM.Results Compared with the control group,serum IL-6 and TNF-α were significantly increased in T2DM and DN groups,whereas APN and CTRP3 levels were notably decreased(P<0.05).DN group showed higher average IL-6 level but lower average CTRP3 levels than T2DM group(P<0.05).Female and overweight/obesity were associated with higher serum CTRP3 level(P<0.05).Multiple Logistic regression analysis results showed that CTRP3 was independently associated with the risks of T2DM 〔OR=0.804,95%CI(0.731,0.883),P<0.001〕 and DN 〔OR=0.730,95%CI(0.654,0.814),P<0.001〕.Pearson correlation analysis showed that in the control group,CTRP3 was negatively correlated with insulin(r=-0.415)and insulin resistance index(HOMA-IR)(r=-0.438)(P<0.05).CTRP3 was negatively correlated with insulin,HOMA-IR,HbA1c,IL-6 and TNF-α in T2DM group (r=-0.312,-0.327,-0.286,-0.342,-0.359) and in DN group(r=-0.407,-0.436,-0.287,-0.386,-0.365) (P<0.05).CTRP3 also showed a negative correlation with Cr(r=-0.389)in DN group(P<0.05).Moreover,it was positively correlated with eGFR and APN in T2DM group(r=0.274,0.436) and in DN group(r=0.428,0.273) (P<0.05).Besides,multiple linear regression analysis indicated that HOMA-IR
〔β=-64.330,95%CI(-92.067,-9.537)〕 and APN 〔β=9.210,95%CI(4.510,16.627)〕 were independently associated with CTRP3 in T2DM group(P<0.05).And HOMA-IR 〔β=-62.773,95%CI(-122.250,-13.348)〕and eGFR 〔β=0.953,95%CI(0.327,2.442)〕were independently associated with CTRP3 in DN group(P<0.05).The AUC for CTRP3 in the diagnosis of DN was 0.881〔95%CI(0.820,0.943)〕,the sensitivity was 76.36%,and the specificity was 90.91%.Conclusion CTRP3 was significantly reduced in patients with T2DM and DN,and was independently associated with the risks of T2DM and DN,and showed high sensitivity and specificity in the diagnosis of DN,indicating that it may play a role in the pathogenesis of DN and may be used as a potential biomarker for DN.
