Dig Dis Sci 2019 Jan 4. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Department of General Surgery, Renmin Hospital of Wuhan University, 238 Jiefang Road, Wuhan, 430060, Hubei province, China.

Objectives: The present study aimed to determine whether intestinal epithelial cell (IECs) apoptosis could be induced by endoplasmic reticulum stress (ERS) in severe acute pancreatitis (SAP), and the role of chemical chaperone 4-phenylbutyric acid (4-PBA) in SAP-associated intestinal barrier injury.

Methods: Twenty-four male Sprague Dawley rats were randomly divided into three groups: the sham operation group, the SAP group, and the SAP model plus 4-PBA treatment group (4-PBA group). A rat model of SAP was induced by retrograde injection of 5% sodium taurocholate (STC) into the biliopancreatic duct; in the 4-PBA group, 4-PBA was injected intraperitoneally at a dose of 50 mg/kg body weight for 3 days before modeling.

General, Digestive, and Endocrine Surgery, Nouvel Hôpital Civil, Université de Strasbourg, 1 Place de L'hôpital, 67100, Strasbourg, France.

Aberrant splenic artery originating from the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) is extremely rare and recognition of this anomaly is important in the pre-operative planning of complex surgery such as pancreatic surgery, liver transplantation and vascular surgery. We present the case of an 80-year-old female diagnosed as septic shock due to mesenteric ischemia and obstructive pyelonephritis. Her splenic artery was originating from the SMA and the anomaly was readily appreciated on the pre-operative CT images. Read More

Oxid Med Cell Longev 2018 25;2018:9150807. Epub 2018 Nov 25.

College of Life Science, Shandong Agricultural University, Tai'an 271018, China.

The present work was performed to evaluate the effect of acidic-extractable polysaccharides (AE-PS) from fruit bodies of on type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and its structural characteristics. The T2DM mice induced by high-fat diet (HFD) and streptozotocin (STZ) were administered with 100 and 400 mg/kg AE-PS for 4 weeks. Our work proved that AE-PS decreased the levels of serum lipid, lipid peroxidation, and blood glucose; improved glucose and insulin resistance; enhanced antioxidant enzyme activities; and attenuated the injuries of the liver, kidney, and pancreas in T2DM mice.
