Opioid-Related Diagnoses and Concurrent Claims for HIV, HBV, or HCV among Medicare Beneficiaries, United States, 2015.Unsterile opioid injection increases risk for infection transmission, including HIV, hepatitis B virus (HBV), or hepatitis C virus (HCV). We assess prevalence of and risk factors associated with opioid overdose and infections with HIV, HBV, or HCV among Medicare beneficiaries with opioid-related fee-for-service claims during 2015. We conducted a cross-sectional analysis to estimate claims for opioid use and overdose and HIV, HBV, or HCV infections, using data from US Medicare fee-for-service claims. Beneficiaries with opioid-related claims had increased odds for HIV (2.3; 95% confidence interval (CI), 2.3-2.4), acute HBV (6.7; 95% CI, 6.3-7.1), chronic HBV (5.0; 95% CI, 4.7-5.4), acute HCV (9.6; 95% CI, 9.2-10.0), and chronic HCV (8.9; 95% CI, 8.7-9.1). Beneficiaries with opioid-related claims and for HIV, HBV, or HCV infection, respectively, had a 1.1-1.9-fold odds for having a claim for opioid overdose. Independent risk factors for opioid overdose and each selected infection outcome included age, sex, race/ethnicity, region, and residence in a high-vulnerability county. Having opioid-related claims and selected demographic attributes were independent, significant risk factors for having HIV, HBV, or HCV claims among US Medicare beneficiaries. These results might help guide interventions intended to reduce incidences of HIV, HCV, and HBV infections among beneficiaries with opioid-related claims.

Prevalence in the United States of selected candidate gene variants: Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 1991-1994.Population-based allele frequencies and genotype prevalence are important for measuring the contribution of genetic variation to human disease susceptibility, progression, and outcomes. Population-based prevalence estimates also provide the basis for epidemiologic studies of gene-disease associations, for estimating population attributable risk, and for informing health policy and clinical and public health practice. However, such prevalence estimates for genotypes important to public health remain undetermined for the major racial and ethnic groups in the US population. DNA was collected from 7,159 participants aged 12 years or older in Phase 2 (1991-1994) of the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III). Certain age and minority groups were oversampled in this weighted, population-based US survey. Estimates of allele frequency and genotype prevalence for 90 variants in 50 genes chosen for their potential public health significance were calculated by age, sex, and race/ethnicity among non-Hispanic whites, non-Hispanic blacks, and Mexican Americans. These nationally representative data on allele frequency and genotype prevalence provide a valuable resource for future epidemiologic studies in public health in the United States.

Identification of differentially expressed genes in murine mesothelioma cell lines of differing tumorigenicity using suppression subtractive hybridization.We have previously prepared two B7-1 transfectant clones (AC29 B7-6 and AC29 B7-7) from the AC29 murine mesothelioma (MM) cell line which displayed markedly different in vivo growth rates and susceptibility to cytotoxic T cell killing. Using suppression subtractive hybridisation (SSH), we searched for factors which may determine the biological distinction seen in these clones. We isolated 19 cDNA clones from two SSH generated libraries by screening using subtracted cDNA probes and characterised them using Northern hybridisation, sequencing, RT-PCR and real-time RT-PCR. The 19 cDNA clones comprised 16 different transcripts of which 15 were identified by homology to known genes and one was novel. Expression of a murine endogenous retroviral (mERV) transcript mERV-AC29 was found in the immunogenic AC29 B7-6 clone and parental AC29 but absent in AC29 B7-7. Real-time RT-PCR was used to confirm that galectin-1, the disintegrin/metalloproteinase MDC9 and ribonucleotide reductase M1 were overexpressed in AC29 B7-7. Our results show that SSH is a powerful method for the identification of genes expressed differentially between phenotypically different tumour cell lines or clones. Characterisation of the role of those identified here will provide useful information in understanding genes responsible for differential tumorigenicity.

Endemic, notifiable bioterrorism-related diseases, United States, 1992-1999.Little information is available in the United States regarding the incidence and distribution of diseases caused by critical microbiologic agents with the potential for use in acts of terrorism. We describe disease-specific, demographic, geographic, and seasonal distribution of selected bioterrorism-related conditions (anthrax, botulism, brucellosis, cholera, plague, tularemia, and viral encephalitides) reported to the National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System in 1992 to 1999. Tularemia and brucellosis were the most frequently reported diseases. Anthrax, plague, western equine encephalitis, and eastern equine encephalitis were rare. Higher incidence rates for cholera and plague were noted in the western United States and for tularemia in the central United States. Overall, the incidence of conditions caused by these critical agents in the United States is low. Individual case reports should be considered sentinel events. For potential bioterrorism-related conditions that are endemic and have low incidence, the use of nontraditional surveillance methods and complementary data sources may enhance our ability to rapidly detect changes in disease incidence.

The enzymatic activity of ADAM8 and ADAM9 is not regulated by TIMPs.The ADAM family of proteases are type I transmembrane proteins with both metalloproteinase and disintegrin containing extracellular domains. ADAMs are implicated in the proteolytic processing of membrane-bound precursors and involved in modulating cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions. ADAM8 (MS2, CD156) has been identified in myeloid and B cells. In this report we demonstrate that soluble ADAM8 is an active metalloprotease in vitro and is able to hydrolyse myelin basic protein and a variety of peptide substrates based on the cleavage sites of membrane-bound cytokines, growth factors and receptors which are known to be processed by metalloproteinases. Interestingly, although ADAM8 was inhibited by a number of peptide analogue hydroxamate inhibitors, it was not inhibited by the tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases (TIMPs). We also demonstrate that the activity of recombinant soluble ADAM9 (meltrin-gamma, MDC9) lacks inhibition by the TIMPs, but can be inhibited by hydroxamate inhibitors. The lack of TIMP inhibition of ADAM8 and 9 contrasts with other membrane-associated metalloproteinases characterised to date in this respect (ADAM10, 12, 17, and the membrane-type metalloproteinases) which have been implicated in protein processing at the cell surface.

A secreted form of human ADAM9 has an alpha-secretase activity for APP.ADAM9 (MDC9, meltrin gamma) is a member of the ADAM family of metalloproteases, which play important roles in cell-cell fusion, intracellular signaling, and other cellular functions. Here we cloned a novel form of human ADAM9, designated hADAM9s (s for short), which lacks the carboxyl-terminus. Human ADAM9s was found to be secreted from transfected COS cells. RT-PCR analysis demonstrated that the mRNA for hADAM9s is expressed in human brain, liver, heart, kidney, lung, and trachea. When hADAM9s was co-expressed in COS cells with APP and treated with phorbol ester, the APP was digested exclusively at the alpha-secretory site. These results suggest that hADAM9s has an alpha-secretase-like activity for APP. Non-amyloidgenic cleavage of APP may occur at the plasma membrane. Our new results support a new therapeutic strategy to decrease in the Abeta content by directly activating ADAM9 in the extracellular space.

Mice lacking the metalloprotease-disintegrin MDC9 (ADAM9) have no evident major abnormalities during development or adult life.MDC9 (ADAM9/meltrin gamma) is a widely expressed and catalytically active metalloprotease-disintegrin protein that has been implicated in the ectodomain cleavage of heparin-binding epidermal growth factor-like growth factor (HB-EGF) and as an alpha secretase for the amyloid precursor protein. In this study, we evaluated the expression of MDC9 during development and generated mice lacking MDC9 (mdc9(-/-) mice) to learn more about the function of this protein during development and in adults. During mouse development, MDC9 mRNA is ubiquitously expressed, with particularly high expression levels in the developing mesenchyme, heart and brain. Despite the ubiquitous expression of MDC9, mdc9(-/-) mice appear to develop normally, are viable and fertile, and do not have any major pathological phenotypes compared to wild-type mice. Constitutive and stimulated ectodomain shedding of HB-EGF is comparable in embryonic fibroblasts isolated from mdc9(-/-) and wild-type mice, arguing against an essential role of MDC9 in HB-EGF shedding in these cells. Furthermore, there were no differences in the production of the APP alpha and gamma secretase cleavage product (p3) and of beta- and gamma-secretase cleavage product (A beta) in cultured hippocampal neurons from mdc9(-/-) or wild-type mice, arguing against an essential major role of MDC9 as an alpha-secretase in mice. Further studies, including functional challenges and an evaluation of potential compensation by, or redundancy with, other members of the ADAM family or perhaps even with other molecules will be necessary to uncover physiologically relevant functions for MDC9 in mice.

Multiple risk factors and population attributable risk for ischemic heart disease mortality in the United States, 1971-1992.The objective of this study was to assess the associations and population attributable risks (PAR) of risk factor combinations and ischemic heart disease (IHD) mortality in the United States. We used logistic regression models to assess the association of risk factors with IHD in the First National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (1971-1974) and Epidemiologic Follow-up Study (1982-1992) among white and black men and women. We examined eight modifiable risk factors: hypertension, elevated serum cholesterol, diabetes, overweight, current smoking, physical inactivity, depression, and nonuse of replacement hormones. Risk factors associated with IHD mortality were the same among white and black men (i.e., age, education, smoking, diabetes, hypertension, and serum cholesterol). Age, education, smoking, diabetes, and hypertension were the risk factors among white and black women. Physical inactivity, nonuse of replacement hormones, serum cholesterol, and overweight were the additional risk factors among white women. Adjusted for demographic risk factors, overall PARs for study risk factors were 41.2% for white men, 60.5% for white women (with five risk factors only), 49.2% for black men, and 71.2% for black women. Much IHD mortality attributable to individual risk factors is caused by those factors in combination with other risk factors; relatively little mortality is attributable to each risk factor in isolation. Analysis that does not examine risk factor combinations may greatly overestimate PARs associated with individual risk factors.
