Malignant tumor is a serious threat to human life, with an increasing incidence and mortality rate year by year. Thrombosis is the second leading cause of death in malignant tumor patients. Microparticles (MP) are cell vesicles derived from a variety of cells that are under the stimulation or apoptosis. The expression of tissue factor (TF) on the surface can he called TF positive MP, which participate not only in thrombosis, hut also in the invasion and metastasis of tumors. Therefore, this article will review the role of TF positive MP in patients with malignant tumors.

Lung cancer has the highest morbidity and mortality in the world, and non-small cell lung carcinomas (NSCLC) account for 80% of cases of lung cancer. The mechanism of NSCLC is still largely unknown, and finding novel targets is of great importance for the treatment of NSCLC. The current study was designed to evaluate the role of miR-148a in NSCLC cell proliferation and invasion and to investigate the possible molecular mechanisms. We found that miR-148a expression was decreased in NSCLC tissues and cell lines. Upregulation of miR-148a significantly decreased A549 cell proliferation, and downregulation of miR-148a significantly increased A549 cell proliferation. Upregulation of miR-148a markedly increased apoptotic cell death and inhibited cell invasion potential. Upregulation of miR-148a significantly decreased signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) expression and 3′-untranslated region luciferase activity. Downregulation of miR-148a significantly increased STAT3 expression. Overexpression of STAT3 significantly inhibited the effect of miR-148a on cell viability and invasion potential. In conclusion, we found that miR-148a inhibited NSCLC cell proliferation and invasion potential through the inhibition of STAT3. Our findings highlight miR-148a/ STAT3 axis as a novel therapeutic target for the inhibition of NSCLC growth. © 2017 He and Xue.

Thyroid carcinoma is very common in clinical malignant tumors, while papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is the most common pathological type. The chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease. In recent years, a growing number of cases of chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis combined with PTC are found in clinic, so the relationship between them has become a hot focus. This article will summarize the current research from epidemiology, pathogenesis and pathological morphology.

Objective To evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) combined with laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy (LADG) for gastric cancer. Methods 60 patients with distal gastric cancer from April 2016 to September 2016 in Shanxi Cancer Hospital were enrolled. According to the admission time, the patients were numbered randomly by odd and even. 30 odd patients received conventional treatment (traditional group), and were even 30 incorporated into ERAS group. Record and comparison of two groups were conducted, including age, sex, weight, body mass index (BMI), 1-day preoperative serum albumin (ALB) level, operation time, anastomosis type, total intraoperative blood loss, postoperative TNM staging, bowel movement recovery time, postoperative hospital stay, total cost of hospitalization, complications, and serum ALB level after operation. Results The level of ALB in ERAS group was (36.16 ± 2.46) g/L at 4th day after operation, and (39.61 ±2.03) g/L at 7th day after operation, which were higher than those in traditional group [(34.38±2.31) g/L and (37.98±1.96) g/L, respectively], with stable changes and statistical difference (P = 0.006, P = 0.003). The recovery time of intestinal peristalsis in ERAS group was shorter than that in traditional group [(51.23±9.05) h vs. (58.97±9.61) h, P = 0.003], and the total hospitalization cost in ERAS group was less than that in traditional group [(7.23±0.34) × 104 yuan vs. (7.58± 0.37) × 104 yuan, P< 0.001]. There were no significant differences in age, sex, weight, BMI, 1-day preoperative serum ALB level, operative time, anastomosis type, total intraoperative blood loss, postoperative TN M staging, complication and the postoperative hospital stay between the two groups (all P > 0.05). Conclusion The combination of ERAS and laparoscopic-assisted distal gastrectomy is safe and effective compared with traditional ways, which can relieve the stress reaction, promote the recovery of gastrointestinal function, reduce the hospitalization cost, and accelerate the rehabilitation of patients.

Based on high throughput sequencing and PCR detection technology, this study has found out that intestinal microbial diversity was impaired and the quantities of two main bacteria flora (Bacteroidetes and Clostridium) were significantly reduced in patients with diarrhea-predominant irritable bowel syndrome (D-IBS). Meanwhile mucosal expression of toll-like receptor (TLR) 2 and TLR4 were significantly enhanced, which was inversely correlated with the reduction of Bacteroidetes and Clostridium. Thus, it suggests that D-IBS may be associated with TLR signal transduction triggered by the intestinal dysbacteriosis.

Current updated meta-analysis was designed to compare clinical effects of hemiarthroplasty (HA) vs primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) for displaced femoral neck fractures in elderly patients. Five randomized and 4 quasi-randomized controlled trials with a total 1208 patients were included for final analysis. It showed that mortality and postoperative infection between HA and THA had no statistical differences, that long-term reoperation rate of HA was higher than that of THA, that medium-term dislocation rate of HA was lower than that of THA, and that pain rates of HA in short-term and long-term were both higher than THA. Summarily, treatment of THA for elderly displaced femoral neck fracture could provide better results of reduced reoperation rate and pain relief; however, HA yielded a lower incidence of postoperative dislocation. © 2012 Elsevier Inc.

Aim: Associations between polymorphisms in miR-146aG>C, miR-196a2C>T and miR-499A>G and risk of HCC, and interaction with HBV infection in a Chinese population, were the target of the present research. Methods: The duplex polymerase-chain-reaction with confronting-two-pair primers (PCR-RFLP) was performed to determine the genotypes of the miR-146aG>C, miR-196a2C>T and miR-499A>G genotypes. Associations of polymorphisms with the risk of HCC were estimated by conditional logistic regression analysis. Results: Drinking, family history of cancer, HBsAg and HCV were risk factors for HCC. Multivariate regression analyses showed that subjects carrying the miR-196a2 CC genotype had significantly increased risk of HCC, with an adjusted OR (95% CI) of 2.18 (1.23-3.80). In addition, cases carrying the miR-196a2 C allele had a 1.64-fold increase in the risk for HCC (95%CI=1.03-2.49). The miR-196a2 CT and TT genotypes greatly significantly increased the risk of HCC in subjects with HBV infection, with adjusted ORs (95% CI) of 2.02 (1.12-3.68) and 2.69 (1.28-5.71), respectively. Conclusion: Our results demonstrate that miR-196a2 CC genotype and C allele have an important role in HCC risk in Chinese, especially in patients with HBV infection.

In Chinese medicine, Shengjiang (Zingiberis Rhizoma Recens) and its processed products, such as Ganjiang (Zingiberis Rhizoma), Paojiang (Zingiberis Rhizoma Preparatum), and Jiangtan (Zingiberis Rhizoma Carbonisata), exert distinct efficacy clinically. This research tried to study the effects of extracts from Shengjiang and its processed products in RAW 264.7 macrophage cells. After incubation of the different ginger types in RAW 264.7 cells for 24 h, an aliquot of the culture was mixed with an equal volume of Griess reagent, and nitric oxide (NO) production was evaluated using a Griess assay. Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) was used as the positive control. Milli-Q water (MQW) was used as the solvent control. The results showed that NO production increased significantly in RAW 264.7 cells following the stimulation of LPS (0.05 μg mL-1), Shengjiang, Ganjiang, Paojiang, and Jiangtan (50 μg mL-1, 500 μg mL-1) separately compared with the MQW control (P<0.01). The stimulation effects of Shengjiang and Ganjiang were significantly higher than those of Paojiang and Jiangtan at different concentrations (P<0.01). The conclusion we could get from this research is that Shengjiang and its processed products could induce NO production in RAW 264.7 cells. © 2015 Hui Liao.

The epithelial barrier dysfunction is associated with the pathogenesis of a number of diseases. Ubiquitin E3 ligase A20 (A20) plays a critical role in maintaining the homeostasis in the body. This study aimed to investigate the role of A20 in the degradation of endocytic antigens in airway epithelial cells. The expression of A20 in the human nasal epithelial cell line, RPMI 2650 cells (Rpcs), was evaluated. The role of A20 in maintaining the intracellular permeability in Rpc monolayers was assessed in Transwells. The endosome/lysosome fusion in epithelial cells was observed by immunocytochemistry. On the absorption of antigen, the expression of A20 was increased in Rpcs. The knockdown of the A20 gene in Rpcs increased the amounts of the endocytic antigens across the Rpc monolayers. A20 was required in the process of the endosome/lysosome fusion. The antigens transported to the basal compartment by A20-deficient Rpc monolayers still kept strong antigenicity. The nasal epithelial cell line, Rpcs, expresses A20 that facilitates the degradation of endocytic antigens in Rpcs by facilitating the endosome/lysosome fusion. © 2012 Elsevier Inc.
