A cerebral palsy rehabilitation training system was designed by using the Kinect motion interactive mode. The motion capture function and the data recording, analysis and evaluation function were designed in the system for the rehabilitation of upper limbs and lower limbs. The system can modify the program through the actual investigation on cerebral palsy patients and data analysis. It also has the action data recording and evaluation function for recording and evaluating the data from multi-course treatment by combining different cases to better understand patients' current training and rehabilitation to provide the treatment data for doctors and therapists. © 2016, Executive Office of the Journal.

HuR, a ubiquitously expressed RNA-binding protein, stabilizes mRNA and regulates its translation. HuR expression was increased at all stages of breast cancer and correlated with poor clinical outcome. However, the detailed mechanisms remain unclear. Here we reported that overexpression of HuR increased CDK3 mRNA stability and thus its protein expression in MDA-MB-231 and MCF-7 cells. Mechanistically, CDK3 mRNA was identified as a target of HuR via bioinformatics and RNA binding protein immunoprecipitation (RIP) assays. Furthermore, treatment with HuR shRNA decreased CDK3 expression, inhibited cell proliferation and promoted cell apoptosis in breast cancer. More importantly, overexpression of CDK3 reversed the suppressive effects of HuR knockdown on cell growth in both MDA-MB-231 and MCF-7 cells. Finally, HuR and CDK3 expression levels were positively correlated and significantly up-regulated in breast cancer samples. And overexpression of HuR attenuated the chemotherapeutical efficiency of breast cancer. Therefore, our results indicate that ectopic expression of HuR promotes breast cancer cell proliferation and survival by directly binding to and stabilizing CDK3 mRNA. © 2017 Elsevier Masson SAS

Pressure ulcers are very common in hospital patients. Though many studies have been reported in many countries, the large-scale benchmarking prevalence of pressure ulcers in China is not available. The aim of this study is to quantify the prevalence of pressure ulcers and the incidence of hospital-acquired pressure ulcers and analyze risk factors in hospitalized patients in China. A multi-central cross-sectional survey was conducted in one university hospital and 11 general hospitals in China. The Minimum Data Set (MDS) recommended by European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (EUPAP) was used to collect information of inpatients. All patients stayed in hospital more than 24 hours and older than 18 years signed consent form and were included. Data from 39952 out of 40415 (98.85%) inpatients were analyzed. Of the 39952 patients, 631 patients (including 1024 locations) had pressure ulcers. The prevalence rate of pressure ulcers in 12 hospitals was 1.58% (0.94-2.97%). The incidence of hospital-acquired pressure ulcers (HAPU) was 0.63% (0.20-1.20%). The most common locations developed pressure ulcers were sacrum, heels, and iliac crests. The common stages of pressure ulcers were stage I and II. Patients in Intensive Care Unit, Geriatric and Neurological Department were easier to develop pressure ulcers. The prevalence and incidence of pressure ulcers in China was lower than that reported in European and other countries. The stages of pressure ulcers in China were different than that reported in European countries. Our study provides with a baseline value for intensive research on pressure ulcer in China.

Background Elevated fibrinogen (Fg) level is a known risk factor for ischemic stroke. There are few clinical trials on oral fibrinogen-depleting therapies for secondary ischemic stroke prevention. We aimed to assess the effects of one-year therapy with oral lumbrokinase enteric-coated capsules on secondary ischemic stroke prevention. Methods This is a multicenter, randomized, parallel group and controlled study that began treatment in hospitalized patients with ischemic stroke and continued for 12 months. Patients were randomized to either the control group that received the standard stroke treatment or the fibrinogen-depleting group that received the standard stroke treatment plus enteric-coated lumbrokinase capsules. The NIH Stroke Scale scores (NIHSSs) and plasma Fg level were recorded. The carotid artery intima-media thickness (IMT) and status of plaques were examined through carotid ultrasound examination. Primary outcomes included all-cause mortality, any event of recurrent ischemic stroke/transient ischemic attack (TIA), hemorrhagic stroke, myocardial infarction and angina, and other noncerebral ischemia or hemorrhage. Kaplan-Meier survival analysis and the Long-rank test were used to compare total vascular end point incidence between the two groups. Comparison of median values between two groups was done by the Student t test, one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA), or non-parametric rank sum test. Results A total of 310 patients were enrolled, 192 patients in the treatment group and 118 patients in the control group. Compared to the control group, the treatment group showed favorable outcomes in the Fg level, carotid IMT, the detection rate of vulnerable plaques, the volume of carotid plaques, NIHSS scores, and incidence of total vascular (6.78% and 2.08%, respectively) and cerebral vascular events (5.93% and 1.04%, respectively) (P <0.05). In the treatment group, the volume of carotid plaques was significantly related to the carotid IMT, the plaque diameter, width and number (P=0.000, 0.000, 0.000, 0.022; F=13.51, 2.52, 11.33, -3.29, but there was a weak correlation with the Fg level (P=0.056). After 1-year therapy, the incidence of overall vascular end points was reduced by 4.7%. Conclusion Long-term oral fibrinogen-depleting therapy may be beneficial for secondary ischemic stroke prevention.

Background: Retinal vein occlusion (RVO) is a common retinal vascular disease and it is one of the most frequently reported causes of visual damage and blindness in the elderly. The current study investigated the potential association between antiphospholipid antibodies (APLA) and RVO risk by conducting a meta-analysis of case-control studies. Methods: A systematic literature search of Pubmed and Embase databases was conducted in August 1st, 2014. Odds ratios (ORs) were used to evaluate the associations between APLA and the incidence of RVO. A random-effects model was obtained for the quantitative synthesis. Results: A total of 11 studies were included in this meta-analysis. A meta-analysis of all studies assessing the risk of RVO revealed that APLA was associated with a statistically increased risk of RVO incidence (OR = 5.18, 95% CI = [3.37, 7.95]). The association between anticardiolipin antibodies (ACA) and the risk of RVO was significant (n =8, OR = 4.59, 95% CI = [2.75, 7.66]). However, the association between lupus anticoagulants (LA) and risk of RVO was non-significant (n = 5, OR = 3.90, 95% CI = [0.99, 15.37]). No significant publication bias was found in the 11 selected studies. Conclusion: APLA was significantly associated with the risk of RVO. Advanced analyses showed that ACA rather than LA affected the risk of RVO. Additional well-designed and well-conducted epidemiological studies are required to further our understanding of the relationship between APLA and RVO risk. © 2015 Zhu et al.

AIM: To investigate the expression of CD40 in ulcerative colitis. METHODS: The expression of CD40 protein was detected by immunohistochemistry in 56 cases of human ulcerative colitis and 10 case of normal colon tissue. RESULTS: The positive rate of CD40 expression in active ulcerative colitis was significantly higher than that in normal colon tissue (62.50% vs 20.00%, χ2 = 6.2217, P < 0.05). The positive rate of CD40 expression was significantly higher in moderately than in mildly active ulcerative colitis (P < 0.05). CONCLUSION: CD40 is abnormally expressed in colon tissue of patients with ulcerative colitis. © 2012, WJC Press. All rights reserved.

This study reports 10 patients with hematological malignances with t(20;21)(q11;q11) resulting from del(20q) (for example, der(20)del(20)(q11q13)t(20;21)(q11;q11) and der(21)t(20;21)(q11;q11)) and described their clinical features and the possible prognostic significance of this abnormality. The t(20;21)(q11;q11) was a rare but recurrent abnormality secondary to del(20q) besides i(20q-). The frequency of der(20)del(20)(q11q13)t(20;21)(q11;q11) among our patients with del(20q) was 2.4%. It was considered that the 20q deletion preceded translocation with chromosome 21. This abnormality is often cryptic, occurs predominantly in older men and is observed most often in myelodysplastic syndromes. Patients with this abnormality have an unfavorable prognosis, similar to patients with i(20q-). The molecular consequences of der(20)del(20)(q11q13)t(20;21)(q11;q11) may be different from patients with i(20q-). To the best of our knowledge this is the largest dataset published to date.
