The present study aimed to explore the diagnostic value and prognostic significance of C1q/tumor necrosis factor-related protein 9 (CTRP9) combined with pentraxin-3 (PTX-3) in acute coronary syndrome (ACS). A total of 137 patients with coronary heart disease and chest pain were included. Among them, seventy-nine patients with ACS were allocated into a study group and fifty-eight patients with non-cardiac chest pain (NCCP) were allocated into a control group. The serum CTRP9, PTX-3 levels were quantified by ELISA, and their correlation with other ACS-related indexes, diagnostic value for ACS and predictive significance for poor prognosis were analyzed. In addition, the risk factors of the poor prognosis of ACS patients were studied. CTRP9 was lowly expressed and PTX-3 was highly expressed in the serum of ACS patients. CTRP9 was negatively correlated with cardiac troponin I (cTnI), creatine kinase-MB (CK-MB) and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) (P<0.05), while PTX-3 was positively correlated with them (P<0.05). Combined detection of CTRP9 and PTX-3 was of high value in the diagnosis and prognosis of ACS patients. In addition, CTRP9 and PTX-3 were independent risk factors for the poor prognosis of ACS. Patients with ACS had lower CTRP9 expression and higher PTX-3 expression than those without ACS. Moreover, the combined detection of CTRP9 and PTX-3 can better evaluate the diagnosis and prognosis of ACS patients.

Therapeutic efficacy of brucea javanica oil emulsion (BJOE) combined with transcatheter hepatic arterial chemoembolization (TACE) in patients with primary liver cancer.

This study is to investigate the effects of brucea javanica oil emulsion (BJOE) combined with transcatheter hepatic arterial chemoembolization (TACE) on primary liver cancer (PLC) and the related mechanisms. Totally 64 PLC patients were divided into the TACE monotherapy and BJOE/TACE combination therapy groups. The short- and long-term efficacies, and the toxicity and tolerability profiles, of these treatments were evaluated. The serum levels of soluble Fas (sFas) and soluble Fas ligand (sFasL) were detected with ELISA. For the short-term efficacy, the response rate (RR) in the TACE monotherapy and BJOE/TACE combination therapy groups were 50% (16/32) and 78.12% (25/32), respectively. Survival analysis showed that, the combination therapy significantly elevated the 1-, 2-, and 3-year survival rates of PLC patients, compared with the monotherapy. No significant differences were observed in the toxicity and tolerability profiles between these therapies. ELISA showed that, the serum sFas/sFasL levels were significantly increased in PLC patients. At 1 m after the combination therapy, the serum sFas/sFasL levels were significantly higher than before treatment. At 3 m and 6 m after treatment, the serum sFas/sFasL levels were gradually declined. The short- and long-term efficacies of the BJOE/TACE combination therapy for PLC are superior to the TACE monotherapy. The combination therapy could promote liver cancer cell apoptosis by regulating the expression of sFas/sFasL. Serum sFas/sFasL levels might be used as the predictive marker for the disease pathogenesis and prognosis, and the treatment efficacy.
