Performance of the Access Bio/CareStart rapid diagnostic test for the detection of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

To reduce the risk of drug-induced haemolysis, all patients should be tested for glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency (G6PDd) prior to prescribing primaquine (PQ)-based radical cure for the treatment of vivax malaria. This systematic review and individual patient meta-analysis assessed the utility of a qualitative lateral flow assay from Access Bio/CareStart (Somerset, NJ) (CareStart Screening test for G6PD deficiency) for the diagnosis of G6PDd compared to the gold standard spectrophotometry (International Prospective Register of Systematic Reviews [PROSPERO]: CRD42019110994).

The Prevalence of HBV Infection: A Retrospective Study of 13-Years in a Public Hospital of Northeast China.

The prevalence of hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection was an imbalance in different provinces of China. This study aimed to investigate the prevalence of HBV infection and evaluate the prophylactic measures in a public hospital of northeast China over the preceding 13 years. A total of 13,948 patients in 2004 and 15,256 patients in 2017 of Shengjing Hospital of China Medical University were tested of serum HBsAg, HBeAg, HBsAb, HBeAb, and HBcAb levels with Abbott MEIA Kits. In people born before 1992, HBsAg-positive rate was 5.45% and 6.47%; isolated HBsAb positive rate was 14.62% and 21.24%; HBV marker negative rate was 54.27% and 42.77% in 2004 and 2017 survey, respectively. The males had a significant higher HBsAg-positive rate than the females. In people born during 1992-2004, HBsAg positive rate was 0.58% and 0.57%, isolated HBsAb positive rate was 41.47% and 46.57%; and HBV marker negative rate was 51.97% and 46.86% in 2004 and 2017 survey, respectively. Males and females had no difference of HBsAg-positive rate. In children born after 2005, HBsAg positive rate was 0.11%, isolated HBsAb positive rate was 76.68%, and HBV marker negative rate was 18.51% in 2017 survey. No difference of HBsAg-positive rate was found between the genders. A dramatic decrease of HBsAg positive rate and a progressive increase of HBsAb-positive rate were found among people born after 1992 and progressed further in those born after 2005. Immunization of infants and timely birth dose was the key method for prevention of HBV infection. Expanded HB vaccination would be needed for people born before 2005, especially those born between 1992 and 2004.

Changes over the years in radiopharmaceutical design.

Of the many uses of radiopharmaceuticals, developing radiotracers that contribute significantly to diagnosis and therapy of patients has been a major focus. This requires a broad spectrum of expertise including that of the attending physician who lends insight to an unmet clinical need neither addressed by other imaging techniques nor by analysis of tissue, blood, and urine for diagnostics and addressed by pharmaceuticals for therapeutic applications. The design criteria have depended on radiochemistry, on matching the radiopharmaceutical with the imaging devices, and basing the design on current pharmaceuticals. The chelates of technetium-99m were based on radiochemistry rather than clinical need yet are still used today in >70% of the clinical studies. Targeted radiotracers in neurologic and psychiatric disorders, inflammation, cardiovascular disease, and oncology have all been studied with the goal of determining the change in the density of a target protein as a function of disease or treatment or, especially in oncology, detection of the total extent of disease. In latter approach PET in university settings leads the way; however, the use of SPECT/CT has increased the specificity of SPECT imaging to complement the cost- effective generator and instant kits already available. Remarkable advances has been achieved in radionuclide therapy using theragnostic agents, with the exclusive domain of oncology For this application the design of radionuclide therapy follows that used for diagnostics. The increased impact of the discipline depends on the opportunity to continue the search for the most appropriate radiopharmaceutical for each individual patient.

Salvianolic Acid C Attenuates LPS-Induced Inflammation and Apoptosis in Human Periodontal Ligament Stem Cells via Toll-Like Receptors 4 (TLR4)/Nuclear Factor kappa B (NF-κB) Pathway.

BACKGROUND Periodontitis is a chronic inflammatory disease that causes gingival detachment and disintegration of alveolar bone. Salvianolic acid C (SAC) is a polyphenol compound with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activities that is isolated from Danshen, a traditional Chinese medicine made from the roots of Salvia miltiorrhiza Bunge. The aim of this study was to investigate the mechanisms of underlying its protective effects and its inhibition effect on inflammation and apoptosis in human periodontal ligament stem cells (hPDLSCs). MATERIAL AND METHODS LPS-induced hPDLSCs, as a model mimicking an inflammatory process of periodontitis in vivo, were established to investigate the therapeutic effect of SAC in periodontitis. The inflammatory cytokines secretion and oxidative stress status were measured by use of specific commercial test kits. The hPDLSCs viability was analyzed by Cell Counting Kit-8 assay. The cell apoptosis and cell cycle were assayed with flow cytometry. Expressions levels of proteins involved in apoptosis, osteogenic differentiation, and TLR4/NF-kappaB pathway were evaluated by Western blotting. Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity was detected by ALP assay kit and ALP staining. The mineralized nodules formation of hPDLSCs was checked by Alizarin Red S staining. RESULTS Our results showed that LPS induced increased levels of inflammatory cytokines and oxidative stress and mediated the phosphorylation and nuclear translocation of NF‑kappaB p65 in hPDLSCs. SAC reversed the abnormal secretion of inflammatory cytokines and inhibited the TLR4/NF‑kappaB activation induced by LPS. SAC also upregulated cell viability, ALP activity, and the ability of osteogenic differentiation. The anti-inflammation and TLR4/NF‑kappaB inhibition effects of SAC were reversed by TLR4 overexpression. CONCLUSIONS Taken together, our results revealed that SAC effectively attenuates LPS-induced inflammation and apoptosis via the TLR4/NF-kappaB pathway and that SAC is effective in treating periodontitis.

Improved genetic identification of acipenseriform embryos with application to the endangered pallid sturgeon Scaphirhynchus albus.

We produced pallid sturgeon Scaphirhynchus albus embryos at five pre-hatch developmental stages and isolated and quantified genomic DNA from four of the stages using four commercial DNA isolation kits. Genomic DNA prepared using the kit that produced the largest yields and concentrations were used for microsatellite DNA analyses of 10-20 embryos at each of the five developmental stages. We attempted to genotype the hatchery-produced embryos at 19 microsatellite loci and confirmed reliable genotyping by comparing the microsatellite genotypes to those of known parents. Embryos at stages 5 and 8 did not produce reliable genotyping while those at stages 14, 24 and 33 did. We used the same DNA isolation method on 262 wild-caught acipenseriform embryos collected from the lower Yellowstone River. A total of 200 of the wild embryos were successfully identified to stages 8 to 34 and the rest could not be staged. Using a combination of single nucleotide polymorphism and microsatellite markers, 249 of the wild-caught embryos were genetically identified as paddlefish Polyodon spathula, 5 were identified as shovelnose sturgeon Scaphirhynchus platorynchus and 8 failed to amplify. None were identified as pallid sturgeon. This study demonstrates that early-stage wild-spawned acipenseriform embryos can be genetically identified less than 24 h post-spawn. This methodology will be useful for recovery efforts for endangered pallid sturgeon and can be applied to other acipenseriform species. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

From opiates to methamphetamine: building new harm reduction responses in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Despite the rise of stimulant use, most harm reduction programs still focus on people who inject opioids, leaving many people who use methamphetamine (PWUM) underserviced. In Asia, especially, where methamphetamine prevalence has overtaken opioids prevalence, harm reduction programs assisting PWUM are rare. The few existing innovative practices focusing on methamphetamine use lie underreported. Understanding how these programs moved their focus from opiates to methamphetamine could help inspire new harm reduction responses. Hence, this paper analyzes a newly implemented outreach program assisting methamphetamine users in Jakarta, Indonesia. It addresses the program's critical learning points when making the transition to respond to stimulant use.

Dietary acrylamide exposure in F344 rats and colon tumor-bearing nude mice: Dataset of gene expression of cancer pathway targets and methylation status of tumor suppressor genes in colon mucosae and tumors.

Dietary acrylamide, a thermally induced food contaminant, at a level (2 mg/kg diet) typifying higher occurrence in certain food products - is neither an independent carcinogen nor a tumor promoter in the colon. This is evidenced by our previous studies using the medium-term azoxymethane (AOM)-induced colon tumorigenesis assay in F344 rats and the human colon tumor xenograft model in athymic nude () mice (https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0073916) [1]. In addition, we found that acrylamide may act as a colon co-carcinogen in association with a known carcinogen (AOM) in F344 rats. Furthermore, exposure to acrylamide at 2 mg/kg in the diet was not associated with any toxicologically relevant changes in clinical biochemistry, hematology, and apical endpoints in healthy rats (exposed only to saline injections) (https://doi.org/10.1016/j.toxrep.2016.08.010) [2]. Here we report data from our previous investigation [1] on gene expression of cancer pathway targets as well as the methylation status of select tumor suppressor genes. Briefly, mRNA and DNA were extracted from (a) colon mucosae and tumors from F344 rats exposed to AOM or saline and (b) athymic nude () mice bearing human colon tumor xenografts, both exposed to dietary acrylamide at concentrations of 0 or 2 mg/kg diet for 20 and 4 weeks, respectively. RT Profiler PCR Cancer PathwayFinder Arrays (Qiagen) and EpiTect Methyl II DNA Restriction kits and PCR Assays (Qiagen) were used to detect cancer-relevant gene expression (84 genes representing 9 pathways) and the methylation status of the CpG islands associated with 22 tumor suppressor genes in colon mucosae, tumors and xenografts. Additionally, RT Profiler PCR Arrays (Qiagen) for cell cycle regulation, growth factors, inflammatory cytokines and receptors, and inflammatory response and autoimmunity were used to investigate the gene expression (84 genes in each array) of targets involved in these select cellular pathways in the colon mucosae from AOM-treated F344 rats.

Circulating DNA, a Potentially Sensitive and Specific Diagnostic Tool for Future Medicine.

Liquid biopsy has the great potential of detecting early diseases before deterioration and is valued for screening abnormalities at early stage. In oncology, circulating DNA derived from shed cancer cells reflects the tissue of origin, so it could be used to locate tissue sites during early screening. However, the heterogenous parameters of different types limit the clinical application, making it inaccessible to encompass all the cancer types. Instead, for reproducible scenario as pregnancy, fetal cell-free DNA has been well utilized for screening aneuploidies. Noninvasive and convenient as is, it would be of great value in the next decades far more than early diagnosis. This review recapitulates the discovery and development of tumor and fetal cell-free DNA. The common factors are also present that could be taken into consideration when collecting, transporting, and preserving samples. Meanwhile, several protocols used for purifying cell-free DNA, either classic ones or through commercial kits, are compared carefully. In addition, the development of technologies for analyzing cell-free DNA have been summarized and discussed in detail, especially some up-to-date approaches. At the end, the potential prospect of circulating DNA is bravely depicted. In summary, although there would be a lot of efforts before it's prevalent, cell-free DNA remains a promising tool in point-of-care diagnostic medicine.
