Interleukin-18 exacerbates skin inflammation and affects microabscesses and scale formation in an imiquimod-induced mouse model of psoriasis.

Chin Med J (Engl) 2019 Feb 5. Epub 2019 Feb 5.

Department of Dermatology, The First Hospital of China Medical University, Shenyang, Liaoning 110001, China.

Background: As a potent pro-inflammatory cytokine of the interleukin (IL)-1 family, IL-18 was elevated in early active and progressive plaque-type psoriatic lesions and that serum or plasma levels of IL-18 correlated with the Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI). Although results from previous studies have established that IL-18 may aggravate psoriatic inflammation, the mechanisms of this process remain unknown. In this study, IL-18 knock out (KO) mice and Wild-type (WT) mice were used to investigate the effects of IL-18 within a mouse model of psoriasis. Read More

Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, Soonchunhyang University Hospital Cheonan, 31, Soonchunhyang 6-gil, Dongnam-gu, Cheonan-si, Chungcheongnam-do 330-721, Republic of Korea.

Background: Sevoflurane is widely used to anesthetize children because of its rapid action with minimal irritation of the airways. However, there is a high risk of agitation after emergence from anesthesia. Strabismus surgery, in particular, can trigger agitation because patients have their eyes covered in the postoperative period. Read More

Clinical indices and mortality of hospitalized avian influenza A (H7N9) patients in Guangdong, China.

Chin Med J (Engl) 2019 Feb;132(3):302-310

Department of Medical Statistics and Epidemiology, School of Public Health, Sun Yat-sen University, Guangzhou, Guangdong 510080, China.

Background: Six epidemic waves of human infection with avian influenza A (H7N9) virus have emerged in China with high mortality. However, study on quantitative relationship between clinical indices in ill persons and H7N9 outcome (fatal and non-fatal) is still unclear. A retrospective cohort study was conducted to collect laboratory-confirmed cases with H7N9 viral infection from 2013 to 2015 in 23 hospitals across 13 cities in Guangdong Province, China. Read More

Innovative analysis of predictors for overall survival from systemic non-Hodgkin T cell lymphoma using quantile regression analysis.

Chin Med J (Engl) 2019 Feb;132(3):294-301

Department of Hematology, Beijing Friendship Hospital, Capital Medical University, Beijing 100050, China.

Background: Non-Hodgkin T/NK cell lymphoma is a rare and widely variable type of lymphoma with the most dismal prognosis. This study aimed to investigate varied impact of the clinical indicators to the overall survival (OS).

Methods: We conducted a retrospective study to identify the non-invasive clinical features of T cell lymphoma that can predict prognosis with an innovative analysis method using quantile regression. Read More

Comparison of cryoballoon ablation for atrial fibrillation guided by real-time three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography vs. contrast agent injection.

Chin Med J (Engl) 2019 Feb;132(3):285-293

Department of Cardiology, First Affiliated Hospital of Dalian Medical University, Dalian, Liaoning 116011, China.

Background: Pulmonary vein (PV) occlusion generally depends on repetitive contrast agent injection when cryoballoon ablation for atrial fibrillation (AF). The present study was to compare the effect of cryoballoon ablation for AF guided by transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) vs. contrast agent injection. Read More

Clinical and muscle magnetic resonance image findings in patients with late-onset multiple acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency.

Chin Med J (Engl) 2019 Feb;132(3):275-284

Department of Neurology, Peking University People's Hospital, Beijing 100044, China.

Background: Late-onset multiple acyl-coA dehydrogenase deficiency (MADD) is an autosomal recessive inherited metabolic disorder. It is still unclear about the muscle magnetic resonance image (MRI) pattern of the distal lower limb pre- and post-treatment in patients with late-onset MADD. This study described the clinical and genetic findings in a cohort of patients with late-onset MADD, and aimed to characterize the MRI pattern of the lower limbs. Read More

Levetiracetam administration is correlated with lower mortality in patients with mitochondrial encephalomyopathy, lactic acidosis, and stroke-like episodes: a retrospective study.

Chin Med J (Engl) 2019 Feb;132(3):269-274

Department of Neurology, Peking University First Hospital, Beijing 100034, China.

Background: Studies on the relationship between antiepileptic drug (AED) administration and clinical outcomes in patients with mitochondrial encephalomyopathy, lactic acidosis, and stroke-like episodes (MELAS) remain scarce. Levetiracetam (LEV) is an AED that is neuroprotective in various neurologic disorders. This study aimed to determine the impact of LEV on the outcome of MELAS. Read More
