The aim of this paper was to observe the effect of Xinfeng Capsules(XFC)-containing serum on the apoptosis and inflammation of fibroblast-like synoviocytes(FLS) in rheumatoid arthritis(RA) induced by tumor necrosis factor-α(TNF-α), so as to investigate the mechanism of XFC in the treatment of RA. RA-FLS immortalized cell line was established, and XFC drug-containing serum was prepared. CCK-8, ELISA, RT-qPCR, immunofluorescence and TUNEL were used to observe the effect of XFC-containing serum on RA-FLS apoptosis and inflammatory indexes. CCK-8 results showed that the optimal concentration and time of TNF-α on RA-FLS were 10 ng·mL~(-1) and 48 h, respectively; and the optimal concentration and time of XFC on RA-FLS were 6.48 mg·g~(-1) and 72 h, respectively. The results of ELISA showed that compared with RA-FLS group, the expressions of TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-6, IL-8 in TNF-α+RA-FLS group were significantly increased, while the expressions of IL-4 and IL-10 were significantly decreased(P<0.01); after intervention with XFC-containing serum, the expressions of TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-6, IL-8 were significantly decreased, whereas the expressions of IL-4 and IL-10 were significantly increased(P<0.01). The results of RT-qPCR showed that compared with RA-FLS group, the mRNA expressions of Fas, FasL, caspase-3, caspase-8, Bax, Bcl-X1 in TNF-α+RA-FLS group were significantly decreased, while the mRNA expression of Bcl-2 was significantly increased(P<0.001); after intervention with XFC-containing serum, the mRNA expressions of Fas, FasL, caspase-3, caspase-8, Bax, Bcl-X1 were significantly increased, whereas the mRNA expression of Bcl-2 was significantly decreased(P<0.01). The results of immunofluorescence showed that compared with RA-FLS group, the protein expressions of caspase-3 and Bax in TNF-α+RA-FLS group was significantly lower than those in RA-FLS group(P<0.05); after intervention with XFC-containing serum, the protein expressions of caspase-3 and Bax were significantly increased, whereas the protein expression of Bcl-2 was significantly decreased(P<0.05). TUNEL results showed that compared with RA-FLS group, the apoptosis of TNF-α+RA-FLS group was decreased(P<0.05); after intervention with XFC-containing serum, the apoptosis was significantly increased(P<0.05). One of the mechanisms of XFC in the treatment of RA is to promote the apoptosis of RA-FLS and inhibit its inflammatory reaction.

Graduate School of Anhui University of Traditional Chinese Medicine Hefei 230031,China.

This paper aims to investigate the effect of oral administration of Tripterygium Glycosides Tablets combined with traditional Chinese medicine on immune inflammatory index in patients with rheumatoid arthritis,in order to explore the compatibility mode of traditional Chinese medicine in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. Medical records of hospitalized patients with rheumatology at the First Affiliated Hospital of Anhui University of Traditional Chinese Medicine from June 2012 to December 2017 were collected. The combined administration of Tripterygium Glycosides Tablets and traditional Chinese medicine was adopted for the experimental group,while the simply administration of Tripterygium Glycosides Tablets were adopted for the control group. SPSS 21. 0 was used to analyze the changes of general conditions and immune inflammatory metabolic indexes in the two groups of RA patients. The association rules were analyzed by SPSS Clementine 14. 2 software Apriori module,and the random walk model was evaluated by ORACLE 10 g tool. The results showed that a total of 1 220 patients with rheumatoid arthritis met the requirements of this study,including 322 in the experimental group and 898 in the control group. Before treatment,there was no significant difference in age and duration between the two groups. The difference value of Ig A,Ig G,RF,CCP-AB,hs-CRP and ESR in the two groups of RA patients decreased before and after treatment,and the experimental group was superior to the control group in reduction of Ig A,Ig G,RF,CCP-AB,hs-CRP and ESR.The control group was superior to the experimental group in reduction of Ig M( P<0. 01 or P<0. 05). Compared with before treatment,ALT,AST,ALP,GGT,CREA,BUN,b-MG,MA,TRU and Ig U all increased,with statistically significant differences( P<0. 01).The UA of the two groups of RA patients decreased after treatment,with statistically significant differences( P<0. 01). The experimental group was superior to the control group in reduction of UA,with statistically significant differences( P < 0. 05 or P < 0. 01). The herbs adopted in the prescriptions of 1 220 patients were mainly classified into four categories,namely spleen-sweating herbs,blood-activating and stasis-relieving herbs,phlegm and phlegm-relieving herbs,and heat-clearing and antidote herbs. The results of association rule analysis indicated a significant correlation between the single-flavored Tripterygium Glycosides Tablets,oral Chinese medicine and immune inflammation,and improvement of liver and kidney function indexes. The results of the random walk model analysis indicated that the experimental group's Ig M and hs-CRP were superior to those of the control group in terms of random fluctuation maximum,walking positive growth rate,comprehensive evaluation index increasing rate,comprehensive improvement rate,comprehensive evaluation index recording times,and expected improvement value. The results of this study showed that the single administration of Tripterygium Glycosides Tablets can effectively improve the immune inflammatory metabolic index of patients with rheumatoid arthritis,and the combined administration of Tripterygium Glycosides Tablets and traditional Chinese medicine could alleviate the immune inflammatory index of RA patients and reduce liver and kidney dysfunction compared with simple oral administration. The comprehensive evaluation Ig M and hs-CRP in the group of combined administration of Tripterygium Glycosides Tablets and traditional Chinese medicine were better than those in the group of the Tripterygium Glycosides Tablets. There was a long-term correlation between the comprehensive evaluation index and the intervention measures of the two groups of patients.

[Effect of triptolide in improving platelet activation in patients with ankylosing spondylitis by regulating VEGFA,SDF-1,CXCR4 pathway].

Zhongguo Zhong Yao Za Zhi 2019 Aug;44(16):3520-3525

the First Affiliated Hospital of Anhui University of Traditional Chinese Medicine Hefei 230031,China.

The effect of triptolide( TP) on VEGFA,SDF-1,CXCR4 pathway were investigated in vitro to explore the mechanism in improving platelet activation in patients with ankylosing spondylitis( AS). Peripheral blood mononuclear cells( PBMC) were used for the experiment and divided into 4 groups: normal group( NC),model group( MC),triptolide group( TP),and AMD3100 group. The optimal concentration of TP was measured by the MTT method. The expressions of TNF-α,IL-1β,IL-4,IL-10,VEGFA and VEGFR were detected by ELISA. The expressions of SDF-1,CXCR4 and VEGFA were detected by real-time quantitative PCR( RT-qPCR).The expressions of SDF-1,CXCR4,VEGFA and VEGFR were detected by Western blot. The expression levels of CD62 p,CD40 L and PDGFA were detected by immunofluorescence. MTT results showed that medium-dose TP had the strongest inhibitory effect on cells at24 h. The results of ELISA and PCR showed that TP inhibited mRNA expressions of IL-1β,TNF-α,VEGFA,VEGFR and SDF-1,CXCR4 and VEGFA. The results of Western blot indicated that TP inhibited SDF-1,CXCR4 and VEGFA,VEGFR protein expressions; immunofluorescence results indicate that TP can inhibit the expressions of CD62 p,CD40 L,PDGFA. TP may regulate platelet activation by down-regulating SDF-1,CXCR4,VEGFA and VEGFR mRNA expressions,thereby down-regulating IL-1β and TNF-αexpressions,and up-regulating the expressions of IL-4 and IL-10 cytokines.

Anhui University of Chinese Medicine Hefei 230038,China.

To evaluate the effect of traditional Chinese medicine(TCM) invigorating spleen unit therapy on inflammatory markers of osteoarthritis(OA) patients by random walk model. The patient information was collected by the data processing system of medical records of the First Affiliated Hospital of Anhui University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. In-patient information of the department of rheumatology of the hospital between June 2012 and December 2016 was collected and summarized. Based on the use of traditional Chinese medicine decoction and hospital-prepared compound Qiyi Capsules(Xinfeng Capsules),the patients were divided into the unit therapy group and the simple endotherapy group. The random walk model was used to evaluate the effect of traditional Chinese medicine invigorating spleen unit therapy on TCM spleen therapy unit(ESR) and high sensitive C reactive protein(hs-CRP). A total of 3 517 cases of OA patients met the study requirements. The simple endotherapy group had 1 771 cases(50. 36%),while the unit therapy group had 1 746 cases(49. 64%). The baseline data analysis showed that the general information of the cases,the TCM oral intake frequency and the core prescription information had no statistically significant difference,with comparability. The unit therapy group showed the maximum ESR stochastic volatility at 924,walking step number of 1 771,forward walking growth rate at 0. 264 5,ratio at3. 78,random fluctuation power law at 0. 306 5± 0. 076 8,positive increase rate of comprehensive evaluation index at 0. 264 5,and comprehensive evaluation index record number of 1 771; whereas the simple endotherapy group showed the maximum ESR random fluctuation value at 478,walking step number of 1 399,forward walking growth rate at 0. 152 4,ratio at 6. 56,random fluctuation power law at 0. 347 4±0. 101 7,positive increase rate of comprehensive evaluation index at 0. 152 4,and comprehensive evaluation index record number of 1 399. The unit therapy group showed the maximum hs-CRP random fluctuation value at 391,walking step number of1 081,forward walking growth rate at 0. 178 1,ratio at 5. 62,random fluctuation power law at 0. 343 6±0. 094 7,positive increase rate of comprehensive evaluation index at 0. 178 1,and comprehensive evaluation index record number of 1 081; while the simple endotherapy groups showed the maximum hs-CRP random fluctuation value at 210,walking step number of 797,forward walking growth rate at0. 113 2,ratio at 8. 83,random fluctuation power law at 0. 382 6±0. 109,positive increase rate of comprehensive evaluation index at0. 113 2,and comprehensive evaluation index record number of 797. According to our department of rheumatism,there was a longrange correlation between the two groups in the comprehensive evaluation index and the intervention measures. TCM spleen strengthening unit therapy has a better effect in alleviating the inflammatory index of OA than traditional Chinese medicine.
