Angiogenesis is crucial for the development and metastasis of human brain glioma. Based on our previous successful construction of a lentivirus-mediated alphastatin (an endogenous angiogenesis inhibitor) gene transfer system and our findings that alphastatin exhibited potent inhibitory effects on the migration and differentiation of human umbilical vein endothelial cell lines (HUVECs) induced by vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) or basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) in vitro, here, we investigated the effect of using lentiviral vectors to overexpress alphastatin in human glioma cells to show whether sustained long-term expression of alphastatin diminishes tumor growth in a xenograft glioma model. We found that the transduced glioma cells sustainedly secreted alphastatin, which did not affect the proliferative ability of the glioma cells. Furthermore, tumor xenografts treated with the recombinant lentivirus were significantly smaller compared to the control xenografts and vascularity within the treated tumors was evidently decreased. Our data suggest that stable expression of alphastatin inhibits human glioma growth by inhibiting angiogenesis, with a probable mechanism of suppressing the turnover of VE-cadherin membrane molecules.

We sought to investigate the efficacy of arsenic trioxide (As2O3) against a human gastric cell line implanted in nude mice in vivo, as well as the mechanism involved. The solid tumor model was created in nude mice with the gastric cancer cell line SGC-7901. The animals were randomly divided into three groups. As2O3 was injected into animals in two arsenic-treated groups (2.5 mg/kg and 5 mg/kg), and the same volume of saline solution was injected into the control group. The inhibitory effect was observed in every group. Apoptotic cells and apoptotic bodies were observed by transmission electron microscope; the fraction of apoptotic cells was detected by TUNEL (terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase dUTP nick-end labeling) under laser confocal technology. The expression of Fas and FasL was detected by immunohistochemical staining. In nude mice, after treatment with 5 mg/kg and 2.5 mg/kg As2O3, approximately 50% and 30% tumor growth inhibition were observed, respectively (P < 0.05 for both treatment groups). Increase in apoptotic cells and apoptotic bodies appeared in As2O3-treated tumors compared with the control group. The fluorescence intensity levels of apoptotic cells in tumor were significantly higher in the arsenic-treated groups (P < 0.05 for both treatment groups). The fluorescence intensity level of apoptotic cells in the 5-mg/kg group was higher than that in the 2.5-mg/kg group (P < 0.05). The expression of Fas protein increased in dose- and time-dependent manner after the treatment with As2O3, but that of FasL protein showed no significant difference between control and treated groups. As2O3 did not induce hepatic and renal system injury in the nude mice. As2O3 can inhibit the growth of human gastric cell implanted tumor. We ascribe this to upregulation of Fas, which can induce apoptosis of gastric cells. © 2010 Elsevier Inc.

Methods BIMS was specifically amplified from HL-60 cells by RT-PCR, confirmed to be correct by sequencing and cloned into shuttle vector pAdTrack-CMV carrying a green fluorescence protein gene to generate a recombinant plasmid pAdTrack-CMV-BIMS. This plasmid and adenovirus backbone plasmid pAdEasy-1 were linearized and electroporated into E. coli BJ5183 host bacteria to mediate homologous recombination. The positive clone was identified by restrict endonuclease digestion. The recombinant pAdEasy-CMV-BIMS was transferred into HEK293 cells for packaging and amplification. The successful construction of recombinant human BIMS adenovirus (Ad-BIMS) was demonstrated by Western blot. To test whether Ad-BIMS has the capability of inducing apoptosis of tumor cells, Ad-BIMS was used to infect GC resistant Burkitt lymphoma Raji cells.Results After infected for 2-5 days, BIMS expression in Raji cells was detected by RT-PCR and Western blot. The significant growth retardation and apoptosis of Raji cells were also observed by MTT and flow cytometry.Conclusion These results indicated that BIMS might be a potential candidate of gene therapy for chemoresistant tumor cells.Objective To transfer pro-apoptotic BIM directly into tumor cells bypass the complicated biological processes of BIM activation so as to reverse the chemoresistance of cancer cells. © 2014 by China CDC.

Although glucocorticoids (GCs) have been used to treat acute lymphoblast leukemia (ALL) for decades, the mechanisms of GC sensitivity and resistance in ALL cells are poorly understood. This study investigated the role and mechanisms of pro-apoptotic protein BIM in apoptosis of GC-sensitive and- resistant ALL cells. The dramatic apoptosis was observed in GC-sensitive CEM-C7 cells after incubated with DEX for 48 h, while not in GC-resistant CEM-C1 cells. The significant up-regulation of BIM in CEM-C7 cells induced by DEX was also observed, but no up-regulation of BIM was detected in DEX-induced CEM-C1 cells. When treated with DEX plus RU486, a glucocorticoid receptor blocker, the apoptosis and BIM expression of CEM-C7 cells were canceled. P38MAPK-blocking pharmacon SB203580 also significantly inhibited the up-regulation of BIM in CEM-C7 cells. These suggested that the absence of BIM up-regulation is one of the important mechanisms of GC resistance, GC-GR conjugation is indispensible in both GC-induced apoptosis and up-regulation of BIM, and p38 MAPK signal pathway is also involved in this process. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.

To discuss the therapeutic effects of the atlantoaxial pedicle screw system fixation in treatment of atlantoaxial instability. From June 2003 to March 2010, 32 patients with atlantoaxial instability were treated by atlantoaxial pedicle screw system fixation, included 21 males and 11 females wiht an average age of 42.5 years old ranging from 28 to 66 years. Among them, 18 cases were odontoid process fractures, 7 were congenital dissociate odontoid process, 4 were Jefferson fracture combined with odontoid fracture, 3 were rheumatic arthritis causing atlantoaxial instability. All patients suffered from the atlantoaxial subluxation and atlantoaxial instability. The JOA score ranged from 4 to 14 (means 9.1 +/- 0.3) before operation. The patients had some image examination including the X-ray of cervical vertebrae (include of dynamic position film), spiral CT 3D reconstruction and/or MRI. The position of pedicle screw system implantation,the angle of pedicle screw system implantation and screw length were measured. Operating skull traction. Operation undewent general anesthesia, implanted the pedicle screw, reduction and bone fusion under direct vision. The bone was fixated between posterior arch of atlas and lamina of axis by the lateral combination bended to posterior. RESULTS :One hundred and twenty-eight atlantoaxial pedicle screws were implanted in 32 patients. No patient had the injure of spinal cord, nerve root and vertebral artery. All patients were followed-up from 6 to 48 months (averaged 16 months). After operation, the JOA score ranged from 11 to 17 (averaged 15.9 +/- 0.2), improvement rate was 86.1%. The fracture of odontoid process were healing completely. All fusion bone were combinated. The internal fixation wasn't loosening and breaking. The atlantoaxial pedicle screw system fixation was effective method to treat atlantoaxial instability. The method had many advantages, such as provide rigid and short segment fixation, safe and simple, high fusion rate. The method was worth in clinical application.

The present study is, to the best of our knowledge, the first report of a rare, transient form of unilateral facial paralysis induced by perimesencephalic non-aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage. The paralysis may have resulted from the compression of a part of the facial nerve by the flow of the hemorrhage into the cavum subarachnoidale; alternatively, the paralysis may have been caused by disorder of the blood supply of the facial nucleus, with the hemorrhage leading to brainstem vasospasm. The patient underwent hemostatic therapy, administration of a symptomatic antiemetic and dehydration. The facial nerve compression was released due to the absorption of the hemorrhage or the rapid improvement of the facial nucleus blood supply following the resolution of the vasospasm. Consequently, the facial nerve function was fully recovered, and the facial paralysis disappeared. © 2015, Spandidos Publications. All rights reserved.

Objective: To discuss the hemostasis effect of rapid manual compression performed immediately after the catheterization through femoral artery, and to analyze its complications. Methods: Based on the author's experience obtained from dozens of years' practice in interventional field, the author summarized an effective hemostasis technique, which was performed through rapid manual compression on the puncturing point. The mean compression time with hand was only about two minutes. This manipulation procedure for hemostasis had been carried out in 324 patients immediately after the catheterization through femoral artery was finished. One day after the catheterization, observation of the skin around the puncture point and palpation of the puncturing site were conducted. Results: Rapid manual compression hemostasis was successfully carried out in all 324 patients, of whom subcutaneous ecchymosis around the puncture site was seen in only four. The effective hemostasis rate was 98.8% (320/324). In another six patients mild skin injury due to compression around the puncture site was observed, which, without any medication, recovered spontaneously in one week. Conclusion: For the hemostasis of femoral puncturing point after catheterization, manual compression method employed immediately after the interventional procedure is finished is a time - saving, labour - saving, safe, economical, repeatable, environment - protecting and practical hemostatic technique.
