    Abstract ( 403 )   PDF (7168KB) ( 154 )  
    Objective · To explore the relationship between sleep problems and behavioral symptoms among the children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Methods · This study included 356 autistic children and 225 typically developing children aged 3-8 years. The Children’s Sleep Habits Questionnaire (CSHQ) was used to investigate the sleep problems of the two groups, and Social Responsiveness Scale (SRS), Childhood Autism Rating Scale (CARS), Autism Behavior Checklist (ABC) were used to assess the behavioral symptoms of the children with ASD. Results · According to the CSHQ total score, the prevalence of sleep problems was significantly higher in the children with ASD than that in the normally developing children [69.38% (245/356) vs. 47.56% (107/225), P=0.000]. The total scores of CSHQ, sleep onset delay, sleep duration, night waking, parasomnia, sleep disordered breathing, and daytime sleepiness in children with ASD were significantly higher than those in the control group (all P<0.05). Compared with the ASD children without sleep disorder, the ASD children with sleep disorder got higher SRS total scores, social cognition, social communication, social motivation and autistic mannerisms scores (all P<0.05). Moreover, the total scores of ABC, sensory stimuli sensorial, relating, body and object use, and language scores were higher in the ASD children with sleep disorder (all P<0.05). ASD children with sleep disorder had higher scores in CARS (P=0.008), and according to the CARS stratification, the children with ASD in the sleep disturbance group had more severe symptoms (P=0.033). Conclusion · Children with ASD have higher risk of sleep problems than the typically developing children. And sleep problems are significantly associated with behavior of children with ASD. Behavioral symptoms are severer in the ASD children with sleep problems. It is suggested that sleep problems may have some deep and internal relationship with the onset of ASD, and more attention should be paid to patients' sleep problems in order to improve their recovery effect.

    Abstract ( 480 )   PDF (8124KB) ( 203 )  
    Objective &middot; To investigate the effects and safety of accelerated repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) on suicide ideation in depressive patients and to examine whether intensive rTMS has a rapid remission of suicidal ideations or not. Methods &middot; A total of 14 depression out patients with severe suicidal ideations were enrolled in the study. All the participants were treated with rTMS (5 Hz) on the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex. rTMS was delivered 3-4 times daily for 3 d (total 10 sessions, 20 000 stimuli). The participants were taking antidepressants at a fixed effective dose during rTMS treatment. Scale for Suicidal Ideation (SSI), Hamilton Depression Scale-17 (HAMD17) and Clinical Global Impression-Severity of Illness (CGI-SI) were assessed at baseline and 4 d, 2 weeks and 4 weeks after baseline. Results &middot; rTMS of 5 Hz was safe and well-tolerated. The SSI scores decreased significantly at all follow-up timepoints after rTMS treatment (F15.788, P0.000), and the SSI score decreased the most significantly the day after the end of rTMS therapy. The effect of anti-suicide ideation could be maintained after 4 weeks. There was a significant correlation between the degree of decrease of suicidal ideation and the decrease of HAMD17 score (t5.658, P0.000), but not related with CGI-SI (t-1.058, P0.295). accelerated rTMS treatment improved depressive symptoms significantly, and the total effective rate reached 78.57% after 4 weeks the baseline. Conclusion &middot; accelerated rTMS treatment may have the potential to quickly reduce suicide ideation in depressive patients, with good safety. The degree of decrease in suicide ideation is related to the antidepressant effect of rTMS, and its efficacy can be maintained.

    Abstract ( 511 )   PDF (11464KB) ( 303 )  
    Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common endocrine disorders in women of reproductive age. It is characterizedhyperandrogenism, rare ovulation or anovulation, and ovarian polycystic changes. Due to the heterogeneity of clinical manifestations, the pathogenesis of PCOS has not yet been fully elucidated, but genetic factors are considered to be the main pathogenesis of PCOS. Changes in epigenetic modifications such as DNA methylation and X-chromosome inactivation patterns may affect the of androgen receptor genes and insulin genes, thereby altering androgen activity, increasing androgen levels, and ultimately leading to PCOS. Peroxisome proliferator activated receptors (PPARs) are members of the nuclear hormone receptor superfamily. Peroxisome proliferator activated receptor &gamma; (PPARG) is the major subtype of the PPARs family in ovarian granulosa cells. PPARG plays an irreplaceable physiological function in reproduction and metabolism. It is involved in ovarian steroid metabolism, ovarian tissue remodeling, granulosa cell cycle regulation and insulin-glucose metabolism. Further research on the role of PPARG in the pathogenesis of PCOS can provide a theoretical basis for the prediction, diagnosis and treatment of long-term complications, which is reviewedthis article.

    2019, 39 (5):  550. 
    doi: 10.3969/j.issn.1674-8115.2019.05.021

    Abstract ( 469 )   PDF (11118KB) ( 189 )  
    Domestic and foreign studies have shown that fine particulate matter (PM2.5) pollution is a major factor affecting human health. In addition to the direct impact on the respiratory and cardiovascular systems, PM2.5 exposure during pregnancy can directly affect the growth and development of offspring, manifested as cardiopulmonary dysfunction and cognitive disorder, various adverse pregnancy outcomes, abnormal organ development, and congenital defects. However, the mechanism underlying the developmental toxicity of PM2.5 is still unclear. This article reviews PM2.5-induced developmental toxicity based on epidemiological investigation and toxicological studies, which will provide references for further studies.
