3,3'-Diindolylmethane Promotes Gastric Cancer Progression β-TrCP-Mediated NF-κB Activation in Gastric Cancer-Derived MSCs.

Front Oncol 2021 24;11:603533. Epub 2021 Mar 24.

Jiangsu Key Laboratory of Medical Science and Laboratory Medicine, Institute of Stem Cell, School of Medicine, Jiangsu University, Zhenjiang, China.

Gastric cancer is a malignant tumor characterized by high morbidity and invasion. Surgery combined with chemo-radiotherapy is the most common treatment for gastric cancer, while multiple drug resistance always results in treatment failure. Once the anti-tumor drugs enter the tumor foci, tumor cells as well as those found in the microenvironment are affected. Read More

The effect of inhibiting exosomes derived from adipose-derived stem cells via the TGF-β1/Smad pathway on the fibrosis of keloid fibroblasts.

Gland Surg 2021 Mar;10(3):1046-1056

Department of Plastic Surgery, Affiliated Hospital of Guangdong Medical University, Zhanjiang, China.

Background: The main mechanism of keloid formation is that keloid fibroblasts (KFs) apoptosis is inhibited, leading to excessive proliferation. Transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) is a key signal molecule in the process of regulating cell fibrosis. This paper discusses the effect of adipose-derived stem cell exosomes (ADSCs-EXO) on the proliferation and apoptosis of KFS and its possible mechanism, in order to provide reference for the clinical intervention of hypertrophic scar.

Management of non-compressible torso hemorrhage: An update.

Chin J Traumatol 2021 Mar 26. Epub 2021 Mar 26.

Medical Center of Trauma and War Injury, Daping Hospital, Army Medical University, State Key Laboratory of Trauma, Burns and Combined Injury, Chongqing, 400042, China. Electronic address:

With the widespread adoption of advanced tourniquets, the mortality rate of limb wound hemorrhage has decreased significantly, and non-compressible torso hemorrhage has gradually occupied the leading position of potentially preventable death both in military and civilian circumstances. With the emergence of novel hemostatic devices and materials, strategies for the management of non-compressible torso hemorrhage have changed significantly. This review summarizes the current treatment strategies and types of equipment for non-compressible torso hemorrhage and suggests future research directions, hoping to provide a comprehensive review for the medical personnel and researchers engaging in this field.

Transcriptome Analyses of Myometrium from Fibroid Patients Reveals Phenotypic Differences Compared to Non-Diseased Myometrium.

Int J Mol Sci 2021 Mar 31;22(7). Epub 2021 Mar 31.

Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Biology, Michigan State University College of Human Medicine, Grand Rapids, MI 49503, USA.

Uterine fibroid tissues are often compared to their matched myometrium in an effort to understand their pathophysiology, but it is not clear whether the myometria of uterine fibroid patients represent truly non-disease control tissues. We analyzed the transcriptomes of myometrial samples from non-fibroid patients (M) and compared them with fibroid (F) and matched myometrial (MF) samples to determine whether there is a phenotypic difference between fibroid and non-fibroid myometria. Multidimensional scaling plots revealed that M samples clustered separately from both MF and F samples. Read More

Plump endothelial cells integrated into pre-existing venules contribute to the formation of 'mother' and 'daughter' vessels in pyogenic granuloma: possible role of galectin-1, -3 and -8.

Scars Burn Heal 2021 Jan-Dec;7:2059513120986687. Epub 2021 Jan 22.

Autonomus Service Institute of Biomedicine, Caracas, Venezuela.

Introduction: Pyogenic granuloma (PG) is a reactive inflammatory vascular lesion of the skin and mucous membranes, characterised by the presence of enlarged venules and seamed and seamless capillaries with plump endothelial cells (EC), and numerous macrophages. EC activation upregulates the synthesis of galectins and induces their translocation to the EC surface promoting angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis, particularly galectin-1 (Gal-1), Gal-3 and Gal-8. However, the presence and distribution of Gal-1, -3 and -8, as well as their implications in the pathogenesis of PG, has not been considered. Read More

Characterization of the T Cell Response to Cell Wall Extract in Children With Kawasaki Disease and Its Potential Role in Vascular Inflammation.

Front Pediatr 2021 19;9:633244. Epub 2021 Feb 19.

Department of Pediatrics, School of Medicine, University of California San Diego, La Jolla, La Jolla, CA, United States.

KD is an acute febrile illness and systemic vasculitis of unknown etiology among young children, which can cause coronary artery abnormalities and aneurysms (CAA) and is the leading cause of acquired heart disease among children in the US. cell wall extract (LCWE) induces in mice a vasculitis following intraperitoneal injection defined by the activation of macrophages, dendritic cells and CD8+ cytotoxic T cells leading to aortitis, coronary arteritis, aneurysms and myocarditis that strongly mimic the immunopathology and the cardiac lesions observed in children with Kawasaki disease (KD). To address a potential pathogenic role of LCWE-specific T cells in human vascular inflammation, we studied the activation of circulating CD4+ and CD8+ T cells in response to LCWE in 3 cohorts: (1) KD children 2-3 weeks after fever onset, (2) age-similar healthy children controls, (3) healthy adult controls.
