Junbo Xing, Hong Cao, Yumin Chen, Caihong Shui, Tingting Shan, Dan Hu
Pharmacology & Pharmacy (PP) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/pp.2013.45059
Abstract: A highly sensitive liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometric (LC-MS/MS) method was developed for the de-termination of imperatorin and isoimperatorin in rat plasma using psoralen as internal standard. Analyses were performed on a Shimadzu HPLC system using a Shimadzu C18 column eluted with a mobile phase of methanol-water (25:75), containing 0.1% formic acid at a flow rate of 0.4 ml/min. The detection was performed by positive ion elec-trospray ionization in multiple reactions monitoring mode, monitoring the transitions m/z 203→147 and m/z 203→159 for imperatorin and isoimperatorin, respectively. The method was validated over the concentration range of 2.5 -1000.0 ng/mL for imperatorin and isoimperatorin. The limits of detection and quantification were 1.0 and 3.0 ng/mL, repectively for both analytes. The intra-day and inter-day accuracy and precision of the assay were less than 10.9%. This method has been applied successfully to a pharmacokinetic study involving the intragastric administration of extract of Angelicae Dahuricae Radix to rats.

Journal of Cancer Therapy (JCT) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/jct.2019.101004
Abstract: Background: For Stage II/III rectal cancer patients, curative resection is the primary treatment, prescribing of postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy (PAC) is regarded as a standard therapy. The interval between surgery and the initiation of PAC is usually within 8 weeks. However, the optimal cut-off is still controversial. This study aimed to explore the impact of extremely early initiation of PAC for II/III rectal cancer. Methods: Patients with Stage II/III rectal cancer treated from January 2013 to December 2015 were retrospectively collected at the Department of Tongji Hospital. According to the starting point of PAC, patients were categorized into two groups: extremely early group (The interval of PAC ≤ 2 weeks) and normal group (The interval of PAC within 3 - 5 weeks). For the sake of evaluating the effectiveness of different intervals, Overall Survival rate (OS), Progress-Free Survival rate (PFS) and Recurrence or Metastasis Rate (RMR) were analyzed, as well as the Quality of Life Score. To estimate the safety of the extremely early PAC, we evaluated the first post chemotherapy adverse reactions and defecation ability, and analyzed the variance laboratory indexes around the first postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy. Results: A total of 267 patients were included in this study. Compared to normal group (192 cases), extremely early group (75 cases) of patients attained a better tendency of OS and PFS, although there were no significant statistical differences (OS: P = 0.0930; PFS: P = 0.1058). However, the RMR was significant lower (P = 0.0452) and the Quality of Life Score was significantly higher (P = 0.0090) in extremely early group. Multivariate analysis also showed that extremely early group had better defecation ability (P = 0.0149) and less side reactions of post

Disease Markers , 2013, DOI: 10.1155/2013/659528
Abstract: Our previous study of a Chinese family with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) suggested that A1180V of the cardiac sodium channel gene (SCN5A) was associated with the disease within this family. According to data deposited in dbSNP, however, A1180V has been found in some small samples of the Asian population. In this study, we followed up the affected pedigree and expanded the investigation of the prevalence of A1180V in 460 unrelated healthy Han Chinese. Besides, we searched and analyzed it in other database as well. During the follow-up period, 1 A1180V carrier’s condition deteriorated alot, and another 4 carriers progressed to DCM or atrioventricular block (AVB). We also found that the A1180V was absent among the 460 individuals (0%, 0/460), and the carrier frequency of A1180V among Chinese was about 0.51% obtained from the 1000 genome project. In conclusion, our finding suggests that A1180V is a potential risk factor for DCM, and it is extremely rare among Healthy Han Chinese. 1. Introduction Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is the most common form of primary cardiomyopathy and is a leading cause for heart transplantations [1] approximately 30%–50% of affected individuals have a familial form of DCM [2]. To date, at least 40 disease genes have been reported to be associated with familial DCM [3], in which; mutations of SCN5A gene which encodes the alpha subunit of the major sodium channel in the heart have been demonstrated to result in myocardial damage and DCM [4, 5]. Previously, SCN5A has been implicated in conduction disturbances and several electrophysiological phenotypes [6, 7], including atrioventricular block (AVB), long QT syndrome, sick sinus syndrome, sudden infant death syndrome, and atrial fibrillation [8, 9]. Meanwhile, more and more SCN5A mutations were discovered to be related with DCM, such as A1180V [10], D1275N [11], W156X, R225W [12], and R222Q [13]. We first reported finding A1180V, a single nucleotide mutation, , that occurred in exon 20 of the SCN5A gene in a three-generation Chinese family with age-related DCM and progressive AVB in 2008 [10]. In that study, A1180V was detected in all studied patients and in six younger unaffected members of the pedigree. The mutation, however, was not found in 200 healthy Han Chinese controls. Experimental data revealed that A1180V channels exhibited a negative transform of voltage-dependent inactivation of the cardiac sodium channels, which lead to a rate-dependent sodium current reduction, and a moderate increase in late sodium current. Correspondingly, our clinical study revealed QRS widening at

Abstract: We study {0,\alpha}-sets, which are sets of unit vectors of $\mathbb{C}^m$ in which any two distinct vectors have angle 0 or \alpha. We investigate some distance-regular graphs that provide new constructions of {0,\alpha}-sets using a method by Godsil and Roy. We prove bounds for the sizes of {0,\alpha}-sets of flat vectors, and characterize all the distance-regular graphs that yield {0,\alpha}-sets meeting the bounds at equality.

Mathematics , 2010, DOI: 10.1088/1751-8113/43/34/345202
Abstract: We show that the quantum Casimir operators of the quantum linear group constructed in early work of Bracken, Gould and Zhang together with one extra central element generate the entire center of $\Uq$. As a by product of the proof, we obtain intriguing new formulae for eigenvalues of these quantum Casimir operators, which are expressed in terms of the characters of a class of finite dimensional irreducible representations of the classical general linear algebra.

BMC Cancer , 2012, DOI: 10.1186/1471-2407-12-276
Abstract: We initiated a case–control study consisting of 390 patients with CRC and 445 healthy controls in men only. We genotyped ESR2 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) rs1256049 and rs4986938 and measured serum estradiol concentration using chemilluminescence immunoassay. Multivariable logistic regression model was performed to evaluate the associations between these variables and CRC risk.ESR2 rs1256049 CT/TT genotypes were associated with reduced risk of CRC (odds ratio [OR], 0.7, 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.5–1.0), while rs4986938 CT/TT genotypes were associated with increased risk of CRC (OR, 1.5, 95% CI, 1.0–2.1). In addition, the CRC risk increased with the number of risk genotypes of these two SNPs in a dose–response manner (Ptrend, 0.003). Specifically, subjects carrying risk genotypes of both SNPs had the highest risk of CRC (OR, 2.0, 95% CI, 1.3–3.3.). Moreover, serum estradiol concentration alone was associated with risk of CRC in men (OR, 1.2, 95% CI, 1.0–1.3). However, individuals presenting both rs4986938 CT/TT genotypes and high level of serum estradiol had a high risk of CRC (OR, 2.3, 95% CI, 1.4–3.9), compared with those presenting CC genotype and low level of serum estradiol. The similar joint results were not observed for SNP rs1256049.These results suggest that endogenous estrogen and genetic variations in ESR2 may individually, or more likely jointly, affect CRC risk in male Han Chinese population, while larger studies are needed to validate our findings.

Journal of Biomedicine and Biotechnology , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/413956
Abstract: Objective. To investigate acute recoil of bioabsorbable poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) stent. Background. As newly developed coronary stent, bioabsorbable PLLA stent still encountered concern of acute stent recoil. Methods. Sixteen minipigs were enrolled in our study. Eight PLLA XINSORB stents (Weite Biotechnology Co., Ltd., China) and eight metallic stents (EXCEL, Jiwei Co., Ltd. China) were implanted into coronary arteries. Upon quantitative coronary angiography analysis, acute absolute recoil was defined as the difference between mean diameter of inflated balloon (X) and mean lumen diameter of stent immediately after deployment (Y), while acute percent recoil was defined as (X−Y)/X and expressed as a percentage. Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) was performed immediately after implantation and 24 hours later to compare cross-sectional area (CSA) between two groups and detect stent malapposition or collapse. Results. Acute absolute recoil in XINSORB and EXCEL was  mm and − mm respectively (). Acute percent recoil in XINSORB and EXCEL was % and −%, respectively (). CSA of XINSORB was similar to that of EXCEL immediately after implantation, so was CSA of XINSORB at 24-hours followup. Within XINSORB group, no difference existed between CSA after implantation and CSA at 24-hours followup. No sign of acute stent malapposition was detected by IVUS. Conclusions. The acute stent recoil of XINSORB is similar to that of EXCEL. No acute stent malapposition or collapse appeared in both kinds of stent. This preclinical study was designed to provide preliminary data for future studies of long-term efficacy and safety of XINSORB stent.

PLOS ONE , 2014, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0096996
Abstract: Objective Although renal denervation (RD) has been shown to be effective in treating post- myocardial Infarction (MI) heart failure (HF) in animal models and clinical trials, its utility as a standalone treatment without traditional drug treatment for post-MI HF still needs to be investigated. Methods Rats were randomly assigned into seven experimental groups: N group (control group with no MI and no RD, n = 10), MI group (MI, n = 20), RD group (renal denervation, n = 10), RD-3d+MI group (RD performed three days before MI, n = 15), β-blocker-3d+MI group (Metoprolol treated three days before MI, n = 15), ACEI-3d+MI group (Perindopril treated three days before MI, n = 15), and ARB-3d+MI group (Losartan treated three days before MI, n = 15). Cardiac function, autonomic nervous system parameters, and neuroendocrine activities were evaluated 8 weeks post MI. Results Compared to β-blockers, ACEIs, and ARBs, RD alone provided significantly better cardiac remodeling and function, enhanced water and sodium excretion, and improved autonomic modulation. Conclusions In this post-MI HF animal model, surgical RD provides effective autonomic modulation, inhibition of the RAAS, improved cardiac remodeling, and preserved renal function, without affecting normal circulation and cardiopulmonary function in normal rats. Compared to β-blocker, ACEI, and ARB single-drug therapies, RD alone is more efficacious. These results suggest that RD may be an effective treatment option for HF, especially in patients who have contraindications to drug therapy.

PLOS ONE , 2013, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0074976
Abstract: Background Three recent genome-wide association studies (GWASs) have reported that three SNPs (rs4072037, rs13361707 and rs2274223) located on genes related to host inflammatory response are significantly associated with susceptibility to gastric cancer (GC) in Chinese populations. Helicobacter pylori infection is also an important risk factor for GC through causing inflammatory response in the gastric mucosa. However, no study has established whether there are potential gene-environment interactions between these genetic variants and H. pylori infection to the risk of GC. Methods We genotyped three polymorphisms (rs4072037 at 1q22, rs13361707 at 5p13, and rs2274223 at 10q23) in 335 Chinese gastric adenocarcinoma patients and 334 controls. H. pylori serology was examined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Multivariable logistic regression models were used to evaluate the association between the variables and GC risk. Results We confirmed that the three SNPs (rs4072037, rs13361707 and rs2274223) were significantly associated with GC susceptibility. H. pylori infection also significantly increased the risk of GC. Furthermore, there were joint effects between H. pylori infection and the three SNPs on the risk of GC. The most elevated risk of GC was found in subjects with H. pylori seropositivity and AA genotypes for rs4072037 [odds ratio (OR), 3.95; 95% confidence interval (CI), 2.29–6.79], H. pylori seropositivity and CT/CC genotypes for rs13361707 (OR, 2.68; 95% CI, 1.62–4.43), H. pylori seropositivity and AG/GG genotypes for rs2274223 (OR, 2.45; 95% CI, 1.55–3.88) compared with those with H. pylori seronegativity and other genotypes of each SNP. Significant interactions were observed between H. pylori seropositivity and the three SNPs (all PG× E <0.05) to the risk of GC. Conclusion These findings indicate that the three SNPs (rs4072037, rs13361707 and rs2274223) identified in the GWASs may interact with H. pylori infection to increase the risk of GC.
