Efficacy and safety of Sildenafil treatment in pulmonary hypertension caused by chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: A meta-analysis.

Life Sci 2020 Sep 4;257:118001. Epub 2020 Jul 4.

Department of Respiratory Medicine, Respiratory Diseases Institute, The First Affiliated Hospital, and College of Clinical Medicine of Henan University of Science and Technology, Luoyang 471003, China. Electronic address:

Aims: Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a severe and prevalent complication of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), with low quality of life and poor prognosis. This study was designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Sildenafil in the treatment of PH caused by COPD (COPD-PH) and provide reference for clinical treatment.

Materials And Methods: We systematically searched PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, Clinical Trials.gov databases, Wanfang Data and CNKI for comprehensive literature reporting Sildenafil for randomized controlled trials (RCT) of COPD-PH. Quality assessment, data analysis used the modified Jadad scale and RevMan5.3 software.

Key Findings: A total of 9 RCTs involving 579 patients were included in our study. The primary outcome measure was Six minutes walking distance (6MWD). Secondary observations were Pulmonary artery systolic pressure (PASP), Borg dyspnea index, and Survey scale (SF-36). Our data demonstrate that Sildenafil can improve 6WMD [29.64, 95% CI (13.78, 45.50), P < 0.00001] and PASP [-7.86, 95% CI (-11.26, -4.46) P < 0.00001] of COPD-PH, compared with the control group. However, SF-36 [2.64, 95% CI (-6.85, 12.14) P = 0.59] and Borg dyspnea index [-0.28, 95% CI (-1.08, 0.52) P = 0.49] have no significant difference between those two groups. Adverse reactions in the Sildenafil treatment group were tolerated headaches and digestive symptoms, which were relatively safe.

Significance: Available clinical evidence indicates that Sildenafil seems to be safe and effective for COPD-PH and can improve the patients' 6WMD. However, large-sample, high-quality multicenter RCTs are still needed to provide stronger evidence-based medical evidence.

Efficacy and safety of levosimendan in patients with acute right heart failure: A meta-analysis.

Life Sci 2017 Sep 8;184:30-36. Epub 2017 Jul 8.

Department of Respiratory Medicine, The First Affiliated Hospital, and College of Clinical Medicine of Henan University of Science and Technology, Luoyang, China. Electronic address:

Aims: Right heart failure (RHF), which is caused by a variety of heart and lung diseases, has a high morbidity and mortality rate. Levosimendan is a cardiac inotropic drug and vasodilator. The effect of levosimendan on RHF remains unclear. We sought to evaluate the efficacy and safety of levosimendan in patients with acute RHF.

Materials And Methods: We systematically searched PubMed, Cochrane Library, EMBASE, and ClinicalTrials.gov to identify studies reporting the efficacy and safety of levosimendan for the treatment of RHF.

Key Findings: Ten trials, including 359 participants from 6 RCTs and 4 self-controlled trials, were evaluated. In the 6 RCTs, we found that patients treated with levosimendan for 24h showed a significant increase in tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion [1.53; 95% CI (0.54, 2.53); P=0.002] and ejection fraction [3.59; 95% CI (1.21, 5.98); P=0.003] as well as a significant reduction in systolic pulmonary artery pressure [-6.15; 95% CI (-9.29, -3.02); P=0.0001] and pulmonary vascular resistance [-39.48; 95% CI (-65.59, -13.38); P=0.003], whereas changes in mean pulmonary pressure were nonsignificant. Adverse events did not significantly differ between the two groups.

Significance: Our study shows that levosimendan exhibits short-term efficacy for treating RHF in patients with a variety of heart and lung diseases. Additional strict multicentre RCTs with long follow-up times and large sample sizes are required to further validate the efficacy and safety of this treatment.

MiR-557 works as a tumor suppressor in human lung cancers by negatively regulating LEF1 expression.

Tumour Biol 2017 Jun;39(6):1010428317709467

MicroRNAs play an important role in regulating post-transcriptional gene expression in the progression of various human cancers. In this study, we investigated the role of microRNA-557 in human lung cancer cells. The molecular mechanism of microRNA-557 was also clarified in the proliferation and invasion of human lung cancer cells. Our results showed microRNA-557 levels were obviously decreased in clinical lung cancer specimens and lung cancer cell lines. Cell viability of A549 and NCI-H460 cells transfected with microRNA-557 mimics was significantly decreased than those transfected with negative control mimics. MicroRNA-557 promoted cell death of A549 and NCI-H460 but did not affect the cell apoptosis of lung cancer cells. Overexpression of microRNA-557 inhibited cell invasion of A549 and NCI-H460 cells. TargetScan analysis showed that microRNA-557 might target 3' untranslated region of lymphocyte enhancement factor 1, and the western blotting results showed that transfection of microRNA-557 mimics significantly decreased the levels of lymphocyte enhancement factor 1 in A549 and H460 cells. MicroRNA-557 might work as a tumor suppressor by negatively regulating the expression of lymphocyte enhancement factor 1 in lung cancer cells.

The values of neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio and platelet to lymphocyte ratio in predicting 30 day mortality in patients with acute pulmonary embolism.

BMC Cardiovasc Disord 2016 06 4;16:123. Epub 2016 Jun 4.

Department of Respiratory Medicine, The First Affiliated Hospital, and College of Clinical Medicine of Henan University of Science and Technology, 471003, Luoyang, China.

Background: vAcute pulmonary embolism (PE) is a life threatening disease. The treatment options depend on the severity of the disease and the mortality varies widely depending on the severity of the condition. It is important to identify patients who are at high risk of mortality. The aim of the present study was to explore the prognostic alues of neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR) for 30-day mortality in patients with acute PE.

Methods: The study included 321 patients admitted to our university hospital between January 2013 and May 2015 with the diagnosis of acute PE. Multivariable risk models were developed to assess the predictive values of the NLR and PLR for 30-day mortality. Discrimination was evaluated using receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves.

Results: Two hundred forty-eight patients met our selection criteria. Twenty of them died within 30 days of hospital admission. NLR was found to be an independent predicator after other confounding factors were adjusted in the model. For 1 unit of increase of NLR, the risk of 30-day mortality rose about 13  % (OR = 1.13,95 % CI: 1.04-1.23). The area under ROC for NLR is 0.79 (95 %CI: 0.703-0.880). PLR was associated with 30-day mortality in univariate analysis but the predicative ability diminished with inclusion of other predicators in multivariable model.

Conclusions: NLR is readily available predicator for short-term mortality. It could be a useful indicator for identifying high risk population and guiding clinical management of acute PE.
