The aim of this study was to explore the chronergy of intravenous recombinant streptokinase (r-SK) in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). A total of 114 patients were divided into two groups according to the time of AMI onset: the morning onset (6:01-12:00, n=53) and non-morning onset (12:01-06:00, n=61) groups. The recanalization rate was recorded, as well as anticoagulant and fibrinolytic indices. Statistical analysis was performed to evaluate the recanalization rate following thrombolysis, as well as the anticoagulant and fibrinolytic activities. The recanalization rates following thrombolysis in the morning onset and non-morning onset groups were 60.4 and 82.0%, respectively (P<0.05). The level of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) antigen was significantly higher in the morning onset group compared with that in the non-morning onset group (P<0.05). This indicated a resistance to r-SK thrombolysis in the morning at the early stage of AMI, which possibly correlates with increased PAI-1 antigen levels and activity.

Aims: This study is to investigate the regulatory effect of microRNA-21 (miR-21) on bone metastasis of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Methods: In this study, 18 patients were diagnosed with vertebral column metastasis of NSCLC. MiR-21 or small interfering RNAs were transfected into H2170 cells using Lipofectamine 2000. Real-time PCR was performed to detect miR-21 expression. Western blotting was used to measure the expression of COX-19 protein. Enzymatic activity tests were performed to measure the activity of cytochrome C oxidase. Flow cytometry was used to monitor changes in cell apoptotic rate. MTT assay was used to determine the capability of cell proliferation. Results: Bone metastasis of NSCLC enhanced the levels of miR-21 in NSCLC patients. Proliferation capability of cells with high expression of miR-21 was greater than that of cells with the inhibition of miR-21 expression. High expression of miR-21 promoted cell proliferation by inhibiting cell apoptosis. COX-19 was a key factor in the inhibition of apoptosis by miR-21. Inhibition of COX-19 expression reduced cell proliferation by enhancing cell apoptosis. Conclusions: This study demonstrates that inhibition of miRNA-21 suppresses NSCLC cell proliferation by promoting cell apoptosis via the decrease of COX-19 expression. © 2015, E-Century Publishing Corporation.
