Objective: To investigate the influence factors of affect prognosis of surgical treatment in patients with basal ganglia hematoma. Methods: The correlative analysis was conducted between the clinical data [gender, age, preoperative Glasgow coma seal (GCS) score, levels of blood glucose and C-ractive protein (CRP), hematoma volume, middleline shift, intraventricular hematoma] of 157 patients with basal ganglia hematoma and prognosis. Results: Univariate analysis showed that the age, GCS score, level of blood glucose, hematoma volume, middleline shift and intraventricular hematoma were significantly correlated with the prognosis (P < 0.05-0.005). Multivariate logistic regression analysis showed that the age, GCS scores, hematoma volume and intraventricular hematoma were the independent correlated factors affecting the prognosis (P < 0.05-0.005). Conclusion: The influence factors of affect prognosis of surgical treatment in patients with basal ganglia hematoma are age, GCS score, hematoma volume, intraventricular hematoma.

To investigate natural spontaneous menopausal age, menstruation span and their relationship with menarche age and parity in Pudong district of Shanghai. From Jan 2007 to Jul 2008, 15 083 spontaneous menopause women undergoing cervical cancer screening were enrolled in this study. The questionnaire included menarche age, parity, spontaneous menopausal age and menstruation span. Those women were divided into four groups based on age, which were group of 56 - 60, 61 - 65, 66 - 70 and more than 70.Analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used for comparing difference between menopausal age and menstruation span. Multiple factor regressions was used to analyze the relationship between menarche age, parity and menopausal age and menstruation span. (1) Spontaneous menopausal age: the minimum was 29 years old, the maximum was 61 years old, and the mean age was (50.6 ± 3.7) years old. The mean spontaneous menopause age were (50.9 ± 3.4), (50.7 ± 3.7), (50.0 ± 4.1), (49.6 ± 4.0) years in groups of 56 - 60, 61 - 65, 66 - 70 and more than 70 years. With the increasing age range in four groups, the increasing trends of menopausal age were observed, which the difference of 1.36 year was shown between groups of 56 - 60 and more than 70 years. (2) Menstruation span: the mean of menstruation span was (34.3 ± 4.1) years, which the minimal age of 12 years and maximal age of 48 years were recorded. (34.6 ± 3.8), (34.3 ± 4.1), (33.9 ± 4.6), (33.2 ± 4.5) were observed in groups of 56 - 60, 61 - 65, 66 - 70 and more than 70 years. With the increasing age range in four groups, the increasing trends of menstruation span were observed, which the difference of 1.41 year was shown between groups of 56 - 60 and more than 70 years. (3) The impact of menarche age on menopausal age and menstruation span: there was no correlation between menarche age and menopausal age (r = 0.02); however, menstruation span was found to be negatively correlated with the menarche age (r = -0.43). (4) The impact of parity on menopausal age and menstruation span: the mean menopausal age of women who had 1 - 2 deliveries was significantly higher than those had no delivery or more than 3 deliveries (P < 0.05). However, there was no difference in menopausal age between women with 1 and 2 deliveries or between women without delivery and more than 3 deliveries (P > 0.05). Menstruation span of women with 1 delivery was significantly longer that those with more than 1 delivery (P < 0.05), similarly, women with 2 deliveries had longer menstruation span than women without delivery or more than 3 deliveries (P < 0.05). There were no difference in menstruation span between women with more than 3 deliveries and without delivery (P > 0.05). (5) Multifactor regression analysis for menstruation span: menarche age was correlated with menstruation span negatively (r = -0.97, P < 0.001). There was significantly different menstruation span between group of 61 - 65, 66 - 70 or more than 70 years and group of 56 - 60 (r = -0.18, P = 0.020; r = -0.78, P < 0.001 and r = -1.23, P < 0.001). Menstruation span in women with 1 - 2 deliveries was significantly longer than that of women without delivery or more than 3 deliveries. (6) Multifactor logistic analysis of menopausal age: there was no association between menarche age and menopausal age, however, significant differences were found in mean menopausal age between different groups, which show that menopausal age of group 56 - 60 years was significant higher than the other groups, including age-group 61 - 65 years, 66 - 70 years and over 70 years (r = -0.18, P = 0.020; r = -0.78, P < 0.001; r = -1.23, P < 0.001). Menopausal age in women with 1 - 2 deliveries was significantly higher than those of women without delivery or with more than 3 deliveries, however, no difference between women with 1 and 2 deliveries or between women without deliveries and more than 3 deliveries was observed. (1) Menopausal age and menstruation span exhibited increasing trends in Pudong district of Shanghai. (2) Menarche age and parity were the important factors influencing menopausal age and menstruation span. (3) With younger age of menarche, the menstruation span become longer.(4) Deliveries of 1 - 2 times can significantly delay the menopause and prolong menstruation span, however, the multiple deliveries (≥ 3 times) had no significant impact on menopausal age and menstruation span.

Lung inflammation and alveolar epithelial cell death are critical events in the development and progression of acute lung injury (ALI). Although angiopoietin-like protein 4 (ANGPTL4) participates in inflammation, whether it plays important roles in ALI and alveolar epithelial cell inflammatory injury remains unclear. We therefore investigated the role of angptl4 in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced ALI and the associated mechanisms. Lentivirus-mediated short interfering RNA targeted to the mouse angptl4 gene (AngsiRNA) and a negative control lentivirus (NCsiRNA) were intranasally administered to mice. Lung inflammatory injury and the underlying mechanisms for regulation of angptl4 on the LPS-induced ALI were subsequently determined. We reported that angptl4 levels were increased both in human alveolar epithelial A549 cells and lung tissues obtained from a mouse model of LPS-induced ALI. Angptl4 expression was induced by LPS in alveolar epithelial cells, whereas LPS-induced lung inflammation (neutrophils infiltration in the lung tissues, tumor necrosis factor α, interleukin 6), lung permeability (lung wet/dry weight ratio and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) protein concentration), tissue damage (caspase3 activation), and mortality rates were attenuated in AngsiRNA-treated mice. The inflammatory reaction (tumor necrosis factor α, interleukin 6) and apoptosis rates were reduced in AngsiRNA(h)-treated A549 cells. Moreover, angptl4 promoted NF-kBp65 expression and suppressed SIRT1 expression both in mouse lungs and A549 cells. Additionally, SIRT1 antagonist nicotinamide (NAM) attenuated the inhibitory effects of AngsiRNA both on LPS-induced NF-kBp65 expression and IL6 expression. These findings suggest that silencing angptl4 protects against LPS-induced ALI via regulating SIRT1/NF-kB signaling pathway. © 2015 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

The aim of our study was to investigate the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) assessment test (CAT), serum copeptin, procalcitonin and C-reactive protein (CRP) levels as potential predictive factors for recurrence of acute exacerbation and all-cause mortality in 6 months of COPD inpatients. One hundred fifty-nine patients who met the inclusion criteria were enrolled and followed up for 6 months. The CAT scores, serum copeptin, procalcitonin and CRP levels were measured on admission and 14 days and 3 months later in all patients. The primary endpoint was recurrence of acute exacerbation in 6 months. The secondary endpoint was all-cause mortality after 6 months. The CAT scores, serum copeptin, procalcitonin and CRP levels were significantly elevated on admission and stabilized at 14 days (P < 0.01). In a univariate logistic regression analysis, CAT scores (odds ratio [OR] = 1.10), forced expiratory volume in 1 second % (OR = 1.01), serum copeptin (OR = 1.32) and CRP levels (OR = 1.01) were significantly related to recurrence of acute exacerbation in 6 months (P < 0.05). In a multivariate logistic regression model, increasing CAT scores (OR = 1.10) and serum copeptin levels (OR = 1.29) were still associated with an increased odds of exacerbation (P < 0.05). In a univariate logistic regression analysis, increasing CAT scores (OR = 1.19), forced expiratory volume in 1 second % (OR = 1.05), serum copeptin levels (OR = 1.44) and hospitalization in the previous years (OR = 1.24) were significant determinants of death over a follow-up period of 6 months (P < 0.05). But only serum copeptin (OR = 1.53) and CAT scores (OR = 1.37) were associated with mortality in multivariate logistic regression analysis. Hence, high CAT scores and serum copeptin levels link with recurrence of acute exacerbation and all-cause mortality during 6 months in patients with acute exacerbation of COPD. © 2014 Southern Society for Clinical Investigatian.
