    Objective · To investigate the effect of Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) in the pathological injury in fat embolism mice model. Methods · One hundred and twenty male C57BL/6 mice were randomly divided into 10 groups. One group was set as blank control group, and others were injected separately with 1, 2…9 μL/g of allogeneic perirenal fat via tail vein, respectively. The mortality of each group was counted, median lethal dose (LD50) of fat injection in mice was calculatedBliss method, and the fat embolism LD50 mice model was established. The TLR4 protein in the pulmonary tissue of surviving mice was detectedWestern blotting. Sixty male C57BL/6 mice were randomly divided into the control group (the same dose of saline was given via tail vein) and the experimental groups (group 2 h, group 8 h, group 24 h and group 48 h, the LD50 fat was given via tail vein). The TLR4 protein at different time after fat injection was detectedWestern blotting. The mortality of 20 TLR4 gene-knockout mice (TLR4-/mice) was recorded and compared with 60 wild-type mice after LD50 fat injection. Results · The LD50 of fat embolism mice model was (3.93±0.78) μL/g. After the injection of 1-7 μL/g fat, the s of TLR4 protein in the pulmonary tissue of all seven groups were significantly increased, compared with the control group (all P0.000). In the fat embolism LD50 mice model, compared with the control group, the s of TLR4 protein in group 2 h were significantly increased (P0.005). Then, level of TLR4 protein was gradually reduced after 2 h, and there was no significant difference between the control group and group 48 h. The mortality of TLR4-/-mice injected with LD50 fat was lower than that of wild-type mice (P0.043). Conclusion · TLR4 protein involves in the pathologic process of fat embolism syndrome. The knockout of TLR4 gene can reduce the mortality of fat embolism mice. TLR4 and its correlated non-infectious inflammatory response may be an important molecular mechanism of biochemical injury in fat embolism syndrome. Blocking the activation of TLR4-mediated signaling pathway can significantly improve the prognosis, which provides new basis for the prevention, evaluation and treatment of fat embolism syndrome.

Methods · August 2015 to August 2018, 300 patients with primary breast cancer confirmedoperation and pathology in Shanghai First Maternity and Infant Hospital, Tongji University were selected. All patients had mammography before operation. The relation between characteristics of molybdenum target imaging and pathological types were retrospectively analyzed. The correlation between specific imaging signs such as lump, calcification, spiculation sign and important pathological features were further analyzed. Results · Among 300 cases of breast cancer, 251 cases (83.7%) had lumps, of which 183 cases had spiculation sign, and 190 cases had calcification. Besides, 235 cases (78.3%) had calcification; 77 cases (25.7%) had structural disorder with diffdensity; 98 cases (32.7%) had positive signs of vascular symptoms. Lump (95.1%), spiculation sign (82.3%) and calcification (83.7%) were mostly observed in invasive ductal carcinoma. Structural disorder (88.2%) was mostly observed in invasive lobular carcinoma. Calcification (96.1%) and lump (60.8%) were mostly observed in intraductal carcinoma. Calcification (100.0%) was mostly observed in lobular carcinoma in situ. Lump was mostly observed in simple carcinoma, medullary carcinoma and mucinous adenocarcinoma. The positive rates of estrogen receptor (ER) and progesterone receptor (PR) were higher in patients with tumor lump >5 cm than those with tumor lump ≤ 5 cm, but there were no significant differences (P0.165, P0.317). The positive rate of ER was 54.5% and the positive rate of PR was 60.8% in patients with calcification, which were lower than those without calcification (P0.027, P0.006). The positive rate of PR in patients with spiculation sign was 71.6%, which was higher than those without spiculation sign (P0.018). But there was no significant difference in the of ER in patients with or without spiculation sign (P0.321). Patients with lumps alone had a lower incidence of lymph node metastasis (29.5% vs 37.9%, P0.009), and lower histological grade (P0.043), in comparison with patients with lumps and calcification. But they had higher ER positive rate (70.5% vs 57.9%, P0.033) and PR positive rate (73.8% vs 65.3%, P0.014). Conclusion · Breast cancer patients with different pathological types show different signs of mammography which may have certain associations with the of immunohistochemical indicators such as ER and PR. Simple lump shadows in mammography may be a predictor in the good prognosis of breast cancer. [Key words]breast cancer; molybdenum target X-ray; pathological feature; immunohistochemical indicator

    Objective · To investigate the curative efficacy and influential factors of 131I treatment for pulmonary metastases differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC). Methods · A total of 95 DTC patients (33 males and 62 females) with pulmonary metastasis who underwent 131I treatment in Department of Nuclear Medicine, Xinhua Hospital, Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine, April 2012 to May 2016 were retrospectively analyzed. The efficacy of 131I treatment was assessed using determination of serum thyroglobulin level and 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron-emission tomography/computed tomography (18F-FDG PET/CT). The possible factors affecting efficacy included gender, age, pathological classification, wheteer pulmonary metastasis diagnosed before treatment, the iodine and 18F-FDG uptake of pulmonary lesions, the size and number of lung lesions, extrapulmonary distant metastasis. Univariate analysis was performed using Rank test and χ2 test, the critical value was obtained through receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve and Logistic regression was also performed. Results · The rates of efficacy and inefficacy of 131I treatment were 53.68% and 46.32%, respectively. Univariate analyses showed that maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) evaluated18F-FDG PET/CT (P0.004), the size of lung metastases (P0.000), age<45 years (P0.004), 131I uptake (P0.022), whether pulmonary metastasis diagnosed before treatment (P0.000), extrapulmonary distant metastasis (P0.014) were the factors influencing outcome of 131I treatment. The critical value of 18F-FDG uptake for patients obtainedROC curve was 1.45 (sensitivity of 56.8% and specificity of 76.5%) and the critical value of lung lesion diameter was 9.63 mm (sensitivity of 43.2% and specificity of 88.2%). Multivariate Logistic regression analysis showed that the influential factors included the age of patients, the size and 18F-FDG SUVmax of lung metastases and whether pulmonary metastasis diagnosed before treatment. Conclusion · 131I treatment is an effective method for pulmonary metastases DTC. The patients aged less than 45 years, with the lung lesion size less than 9.63 cm, low 18F-FDG SUVmax and diagnosed before treatment may have good response to 131I treatment.

    Major depression disorder (MDD) is a common but serious affective disorder in modern society. Suicide idea and suicide behaviour inducedMDD during its later stage put a heavy burden on society and family. Anti-depression drugs lack efficiency in treating a portion of MDD patients. This is referred to as treatment resistant depression (TRD). A study reported the rapid onset and long lasting anti-depression effect of ketamine, which also come into effect in TRD patients. &Delta;9-Tetrahydrocannabinol is the active substance of marijuana, which also exerts rapid anti-depression effect via targeting at brain cannabinoid receptors. The two central nerve system stimulants belonging to the tightly controlled psychoactive substances have obvious adverse effects. This article summarizes the action of ketamine and endocannabinoid system in rapid anti-depression therapy in recent researches.

    Abstract ( 938 )   PDF (4189KB) ( 456 )  
    A 70-year-old male with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) 9 years ago initially presenting elevation of prostate specific antigen (PSA) was diagnosed with high-risk prostate cancer in March, 2018. He received 18F-FDG positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT), which showed mild FDG-avidity in swollen lymph nodes across the entire body, considering CLL. Then he underwent neoadjuvant androgen deprivation therapy for 1 month and then robot-assisted radical prostatectomy and biopsy of the right iliac vascular obturator lymph nodes. The prostate pathology was prostate cancer, and the pathology of lymph nodes was CLL. His serum PSA levels 1 month and 3 months after operation both reached the level of cure. For the patients with concomitant high-risk prostate cancer and CLL, PET/CT may be valuable in distinguishing whether the swollen lymph nodes were infiltratedprostate cancer and guiding the lymphadenectomy.
