Aim: To study the relationship between erectile dysfunction and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM)/metabolic syndrome (MetS). Methods: This prospective study invited male patients with T2DM attending for a routine outpatient check-up to complete two questionnaires. A general questionnaire was used to collect demographic and clinical characteristics, while sexual function was assessed using the International Index of Erectile Function scoring system. The prevalence of MetS in this patient population was determined using information from the general questionnaire. Risk factors for erectile dysfunction were identified using univariate and multivariate logistic regression analyses. Results: A total of 175 patients provided valid questionnaires; of these, 148 (84.6%) had MetS. The prevalence of erectile dysfunction was 90.9% (159/175) in the entire survey population compared with 89.2% (132/148) in patients with MetS. Multivariate logistic regression analysis identified the following risk factors for erectile dysfunction in patients with T2DM and/or MetS: age, blood pressure and duration of diabetes. Conclusion: These current findings suggest that the MetS and its components have a negative impact on male erectile function. © 2016, © The Author(s) 2016.

Objective: To examine the relationship between risk factors for cardiac disease and erectile dysfunction (ED) in men from Xi’an, China. Methods: Participants were patients with cardiovascular disease who visited the Cardiovascular Medicine Department of Xi’an Jiaotong University First Affiliated Hospital between September 2011 and March 2012. Two hundred and fifty patients were issued with questionnaires and underwent a physical examination and blood test.Risk factors for ED were identified using univariate and multivariate analyses. Results: In total, 222 participants returned valid questionnaires (89% response rate), underwent a physical examination and blood test, and were included in the study. The most common cardiovascular diseases were hypertension (n = 142; 64%), coronary heart disease (n = 90; 41%) and angina pectoris (n = 78; 35%). Most patients (n = 144; 65%) had two or more cardiovascular diseases. Age, smoking, body mass index, total cholesterol level, hypertension and the ratio of total cholesterol to high-density lipoprotein cholesterol were significantly associated with ED. Domestic location, level of education, participation in physical activity, diabetes and drinking alcohol were not associated with ED. Conclusions: Common risk factors for cardiovascular disease are associated with ED in patients with cardiovascular disease. This study furthers understanding of the risk factors for ED in Chinese patients with cardiovascular disease and paves the way for further research into the prevention of ED. © 2016, © The Author(s) 2016.

Purpose. To understand the changing trends in the disease spectrum and mortality rate of Shenmu hospital Pediatrics Department hospitalizations, and to provide a scientific basis for the future medical care and prevention of childhood diseases. Methods. A retrospective statistical analysis was conducted on the data regarding Hospitalization record of Shenmu County Hospital having hospital discharge time from January 1st, 1998 to December 31st, 2012. Results. From January 1, 1998 to December 31, 2012 in Shenmu Hospital 23 448 children below the age of 14 were hospitalized, amongst them 17 173 were male which accounts for 73.2%. The majority of the patients were less than 3 years old constituting 78.8% (which included 57.2% of 1-month ∼1-year-old children). The average number of hospitalization days was 6.8 days, with a median time of 6 days. The leading cause of hospitalization were respiratory system diseases. Other major illnesses causing hospitalization include infectious diseases, digestive tract disorders, neonatal diseases and nervous system diseases. A total of 144 children died during this period and the trend in the mortality rate is observed to be declining (X2 = 13.46, p < 0.01). The top three causes of death in diseased children were asphyxia, premature birth and neonatal respiratory distress syndrome. Conclusion. During 15 years, the changing trends in the pediatric inpatient disease spectrum and mortality rate are significantly important for clinicians to prevent and minimize the disease incidence, and also to apply early therapeutic options to high risk patients.

Antidiabetic activity of Coptis chinensis Franch (Ranunculaceae) polysaccharide (CCPW) has been reported. However, its molecular mechanism remains unclear. Objective: An attempt was made to further verify the antidiabetic activity of CCPW on type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and elucidate the mechanism of antidiabetic activity. Materials and methods: Male Wistar rats were fed with high-fat diet (HFD) and injected with streptozotocin (STZ) to generate a T2DM model. Effects of CCPW on fasting blood glucose (FBG), triglyceride (TG), total cholesterol (TC), glutathione (GSH), glutathione peroxidases (GSH-Px), superoxide dismutases (SOD), catalase (CAT), malondialdehyde (MDA), c-jun n-terminal kinase (JNK), phosphorylated insulin receptor substrate 1 (phospho-IRS1), phosphorylated phosphatidylinositol 3 kinase (phospho-PI3Kp85) and glucose transporter 4 (Glut4) were investigated. Results: FBG level of diabetic rats could be significantly inhibited by 51.2, 42.7, and 23.3% through administration of CCPW at doses of 200, 100, and 50mg/kg b.w., respectively (p<0.01). CCPW also could significantly reduce TG by 19.2, 12.1, and 7.4%, and TC by 24.2, 20.9, and 18.7%, respectively (p<0.05 or p<0.01). CCPW showed an obvious antioxidant effect through increasing GSH-Px, SOD, and CAT activities, and decreasing GSH and MDA contents (p<0.05 or p<0.01). Furthermore, CCPW could inhibit JNK and phospho-IRS1 expression and promote the expression of phospho-PI3Kp85 and Glut4 compared with those in the DM group (p<0.05 or p<0.01). Discussion and conclusion: CCPW can produce antidiabetic activity in rats with T2DM through its antioxidative effect, which is closely related to the JNK/IRS1/PI3K pathway. © 2015 Informa Healthcare USA, Inc.

To analyze the relationship between levels of air pollution and number of children hospitalizations because of respiratory tract infection in Shenmu County, the data regardingmeteorological factors, environmental pollutants, that is SO2 and NO2, Particulate Matter 10 (PM10), and hospitalizations of children less than 16 years of age was collected during the time duration of November 2009 toOctober 2012.Using SAS 9.3, descriptive data analysis for meteorological and environmental factors and hospital admissions were performed along with main air pollutants determination. Using the statistical software R 3.0.1, a generalized additive Poisson regression model was established, the linear fitting models of the air pollutant concentrations and meteorological factors were introduced considering the lag effect, and the relative risk of the main atmospheric pollutants on children hospitalization was evaluated. The results showed that the primary air pollutant in Shenmu County is PM10 and its Pearson correlation coefficient with Air Pollution Index (API) is 0.917. After control of long termclimate trend, "week day effect,"meteorological factors, and impact of other contaminants, it was found that, on the same day and during the lag of 1 to 10 days, PM10 concentrations had no significant effect on children hospitalization rate. © 2015 Yonglin Liu et al.
