    ABSTRACT: Notoginsenoside R1 (NGR1), a novel phytoestrogen isolated from Panax notoginseng, has been widely used in the treatment of microcirculatory diseases in Asian countries. Here we investigated the effect of NGR1 on osteoblast differentiation and mineralization process. Furthermore, we also evaluated NGR1's estrogenic properties, especially its effects on estrogen receptors (ERs). NGR1 activated the transcriptional activity of phosphorylated estrogen response element (pERE)-luciferase (Luc) and induced ERα phosphorylation in hBMSC. In addition, ER activation correlated with induction and was associated with osteoblast differentiation biomarkers including alkaline phosphatase activity and transcription of osteoblastic genes, e.g., type I collagen (COL1), osteonectin, osteocalcin (OC), runt related protein 2 (Runx2), and osterix. NGR1 also promoted the mineralization process of osteoblasts. The NGR1-induced effects were confirmed to be mediated by the ER by the observation that pretreatment of the osteoblasts with the ER antagonist, ICI 182,780 fully blocked the effects. Our results showed that NGR1 stimulates osteogenic differentiation of cultured osteoblasts by activating ER signaling and in turn might be a potential therapeutic alternative for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis.

    ABSTRACT: There is no consensus on the optimal treatment for patients with complex proximal humeral fractures. A meta-analysis was performed to evaluate clinical effectiveness of plate and tension band fixation compared with conservative therapy. We systematically searched electronic databases (Pubmed, Medline, Embase, Cochrane library and Google Scholar) to identify comparative studies and randomized controlled trials in which plate and tension band fixation was compared with conservative treatment of the complex proximal humeral fractures from 1995 to 2013. The quality of the studies was assessed and effective data were pooled for meta-analysis. A total of 222 patients from three RCTs and three comparative studies were included in this meta-analysis (113 fractures treated with plate and tension band and 109 with conservative treatment). The primary and secondary outcomes (Constant Score, nonunion, avascular necrosis and osteoarthritis) were compared and there was no significant difference among these different treatments of this injury. Compared with conservative treatment, internal fixation including plate and tension band did not find better shoulder function, higher rate avascular necrosis of humeral head, lower rate nonunion, and higher rate osteoarthritis. In further, high quality and large randomized trials should be recommended to make a choice between these treatment modalities.

    ABSTRACT: Chemotherapy is one of the most common treatments used for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), which effectively improves outcome and reduces tumor recurrence. However, the drug resistance mechanisms involved in chemotherapy, which is the predominant challenge in HCC treatment, remain to be fully elucidated. Therefore, there is an urgent requirement for the identification of novel therapeutic strategies or drugs. MicroRNAs (miRs) have become an area of interest, and in the present study, the effects of miR‑133a and miR‑326 on HepG2 cells, and their function on B‑cell lymphoma‑extra large (Bcl‑xl) in HepG2 cells were investigated. Using computational programs, Bcl‑xl was predicted as the common target gene of miR‑133a and miR‑326. A dual‑luciferase reporter assay was used to verify the target genes of miRs. The mRNA and protein levels of Bcl‑xl were observed to be downregulated following transfection with miR‑133a or miR‑326 mimics. Combining miR‑133a or miR‑326 with 5‑fluorouracil (5‑FU) or cisplatin (DDP) resulted in increased cell death. The results of the present study indicated that miR‑133a, miR‑326 and Bcl‑xl acted protectively against the apoptosis, induced by 5‑FU or DDP, in HepG2 cells. This suggested the potential use of miRs either as ancillary anti‑cancer drugs or as anti‑cancer drugs themselves.

    ABSTRACT: Aspidin PB is a natural product extracted from Dryopteris fragrans (L.) Schott, which has been characterized for its various biological activities. We reported that aspidin PB induced cell cycle arrest and apoptosis through the p53/p21 and mitochondria-dependent pathways in human osteosarcoma cells. Aspidin PB inhibited the proliferation of Saos-2, U2OS, and HOS cells in a dose-dependent and time-dependent manner. Aspidin PB induced changes in the cell cycle regulators (cyclin A, pRb, CDK2, p53, and p21), which caused cell cycle arrest in the S phase. We also explored the role of siRNA targeted to p53; it led to a dose-dependent attenuation of aspidin PB-induced apoptosis signaling. Moreover, after treatment with aspidin PB, the p21-silenced cells decreased significantly at the S phase. Aspidin PB increased the percentage of cells with mitochondrial membrane potential disruption. Western blot analysis showed that aspidin PB inhibited Bcl-2 expression and induced Bax expression to disintegrate the outer mitochondrial membrane and caused cytochrome C release. Mitochondrial cytochrome C release was associated with the activation of caspase-9 and caspase-3 cascades. Furthermore, the double-stranded DNA breaks and reactive oxygen species signaling were both involved in aspidin PB-induced DNA damage. In addition, aspidin PB inhibited tumor growth significantly in U2OS xenografts. Above all, we conclude that aspidin PB represents a valuable natural source and may potentially be applicable in osteosarcoma therapy.

    ABSTRACT: Osteoinduction and proliferation of bone-marrow stromal cells (BMSCs) in three-dimensional (3D) poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) scaffolds have not been studied throughly and are technically challenging. This study aimed to optimize nanocomposites of 3D PCL scaffolds to provide superior adhesion, proliferation and differentiation environment for BMSCs in this scenario. BMSCs were isolated and cultured in a novel 3D tissue culture poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) scaffold coated with poly-lysine, hydroxyapatite (HAp), collagen and HAp/collagen. Cell morphology was observed and BMSC biomarkers for osteogenesis, osteoblast differentiation and activation were analyzed. Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) micrographs showed that coating materials were uniformly deposited on the surface of PCL scaffolds and BMSCs grew and aggregated to form clusters during 3D culture. Both mRNA and protein levels of the key players of osteogenesis and osteoblast differentiation and activation, including runt-related transcription factor 2 (Runx2), alkaline phosphates (ALP), osterix, osteocalcin, and RANKL, were significantly higher in BMSCs seeded in PCL scaffolds coated with HAp or HAp/collagen than those seeded in uncoated PCL scaffolds, whereas the expression levels were not significantly different in collagen or poly-lysine coated PCL scaffolds. In addition, poly-lysine, collagen, HAp/collagen, and HAp coated PCL scaffolds had significantly more viable cells than uncoated PCL scaffolds, especially scaffolds with HAp/collagen and collagen-alone coatings. That BMSCs in HAp or HAp/collagen PCL scaffolds had remarkably higher ALP activities than those in collagen-coated alone or uncoated PCL scaffolds indicating higher osteogenic differentiation levels of BMSCs in HAp or HAp/collagen PCL scaffolds. Moreover, morphological changes of BMSCs after four-week of 3D culture confirmed that BMSCs successfully differentiated into osteoblast with spread-out phenotype in HAp/collagen coated PCL scaffolds. This study showed a proof of concept for preparing biomimetic 3D poly (ε-caprolactone)/ hydroxyapatite/collagen scaffolds with excellent osteoinduction and proliferation capacity for bone regeneration.

    ABSTRACT: Abstract Recent studies have shown that a class of small, functional RNAs, named microRNAs, may regulate multidrug resistance-associated protein 1 (ABCC1). Since ABCC1 is an important efflux transporter responsible for cellular drug disposition, the discovery of microRNAs (miRNA) brings an idea that there may be some other unknown multidrug resistance (MDR) mechanisms exist. Using computational programs, we predicted that the 3'untranslated region (3'UTR) of ABCC1 contains a potential miRNA binding site for miR-133a and also two other for miR-326. These binding sites were confirmed by luciferase reporter assay. ABCC1 mRNA degradation was accelerated dramatically in cells transfected with miR-133a or miR-326 mimics using qRT-PCR, Furthermore, western blot analysis indicated that ABCC1 protein expression was significantly down-regulated in hepatocellular carcinoma cells line HepG2 after transfection with miR-133a or miR-326 mimics, suggesting the involvement of mRNA degradation and protein expression mechanism. The effects of the two miRNAs on adriamycin (ADM) sensitivity to HepG2 cells were determined by MTT assay. Compared with mock transfection, miR-133a or miR-326 mimics transfection sensitized these cells to ADM. These findings for the first time demonstrated that the involvement of miR-133a and miR-326 in MDR is mediated by ABCC1 in hepatocellular carcinoma cell line HepG2 and suggested that miR-133a and miR-326 may be efficient agents for preventing and reversing ADM resistance in cancer cells.

    ABSTRACT: The development of acquired resistance to chemotherapy is a major obstacle in the successful treatment of cancer. In breast cancer cells, B-cell lymphoma-extra large (Bcl-xL) is involved in the development of resistance to various chemotherapeutic agents; therefore, preliminary biological prediction was performed to identify a putative binding site for let-7b in the 3'-untranslated region (UTR) of the Bcl-xL gene and a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) within this binding region. The present study investigated the association between the SNP rs3208684 A>C and chemotherapeutic agent resistance in breast cancer cells. The data indicated that let-7b negatively regulates the expression of Bcl-xL and appears to sensitize MCF-7 cells to the chemotherapeutic agents 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and doxorubicin. Furthermore, the SNP rs3208684 A>C was demonstrated to enhance Bcl-xL protein expression by disrupting the binding of let-7b to the 3'-UTR of Bcl-xL and, in MCF-7 cells, overexpression of let-7b in the presence of a mutant Bcl-xL 3'-UTR (C allele) significantly increased 5-FU and doxorubicin resistance. Thus, the results of the present study demonstrate that the SNP rs3208684 A>C may upregulate Bcl-xL protein expression and enhance the resistance of the MCF-7 cells to 5-FU and doxorubicin by decreasing the binding of let-7b to the 3'-UTR of Bcl-xL.

    ABSTRACT: B‑cell lymphoma‑extra large (Bcl‑xl) is an anti‑apoptotic member of the B‑cell lymphoma 2 (Bcl‑2) family that is often found to be overexpressed in human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), therefore conferring a survival advantage to tumor cells. microRNA (miRNA) let‑7b is downregulated in HCC and its expression correlates with multidrug resistance. Using computational programs, it was predicted that the 3' untranslated region (UTR) of the Bcl‑xl gene contains a potential miRNA binding site for let‑7b, and that a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) site rs3208684 (A or C allele) resides within this binding site. Luciferase assays and western blot analysis demonstrated that let‑7b targeted Bcl‑xl gene expression and negatively regulated the amount of Bcl‑xl protein. SNP rs3208684 (A>C) variation enhanced the expression of Bcl‑xl by disrupting the binding of let‑7b to the 3'UTR of Bcl‑xl. The effects of the two polymorphic variants on chemotherapeutic drug sensitivity were determined by cell counting kit 8 assays. Overexpression of the Bcl‑xl mutated (C) allele in BEL‑7402 HCC cells significantly decreased fluorouracil (5‑FU) sensitivity, as compared with mock transfection and overexpression of the wild‑type allele. From this, it was concluded that let‑7b increased 5‑FU sensitivity by repressing Bcl‑xl expression in HCC cells. These results suggest that SNP (rs3208684) may be a potential marker for personalized treatment.

    ABSTRACT: To compare the effectiveness of the 3 methods (traditional open Achilles tendon anastomosis, minimally invasive percutaneous Achilles tendon anastomosis, and Achilles tendon anastomosis limited incision) for acute Achilles tendon rupture so as to provide a reference for the choice of clinical treatment plans. Between December 2007 and March 2010, 69 cases of acute Achilles tendon rupture were treated by traditional open Achilles tendon anastomosis (traditional group, n=23), by minimally invasive percutaneous Achilles tendon anastomosis (minimally invasive group, n=23), and by Achilles tendon anastomosis limited incision (limited incision group, n=23). There was no significant difference in gender, age, mechanism of injury, and American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) ankle-hindfoot score between 3 groups (P > 0.05). Minimally invasive group and limited incision group were significantly better than traditional group in hospitalization days and blood loss (P < 0.01). Incision infection occurred in 2 cases of traditional group, and healing of incision by first intention was achieved in all patients of the other 2 groups, showing significant difference in the complication rate (P < 0.05). Re-rupture of Achilles tendon occurred in 1 case (4.3%) of minimally invasive group and limited incision group respectively; no re-rupture was found in traditional group (0), showing significant difference when compared with the other 2 groups (P < 0.05). All cases were followed up 12-18 months with an average of 14.9 months. The function of the joint was restored. The AOFAS score was more than 90 points in 3 groups at 12 months after operation, showing no significant difference among 3 groups (P > 0.05). The above 3 procedures can be used to treat acute Achilles tendon rupture. However, minimally invasive percutaneous Achilles tendon anastomosis and Achilles tendon anastomosis limited incision have the advantages of less invasion, good healing, short hospitalization days, and less postoperative complication, and have the disadvantage of increased risk for re-rupture of Achilles tendon after operations.

    ABSTRACT: In the present study, the effects of celecoxib on proliferation, collagen expression, ERK1/2 and SMAD2/3 phosphorylation in NIH/3T3 fibroblasts were investigated. NIH/3T3 fibroblasts stimulated with fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF-2) or transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) were examined in the presence of celecoxib. Proliferation was assessed by MTT assays; ERK1/2 expression and SMAD2/3 expression were assessed by quantitative RT-PCR and western blotting; ERK1/2 phosphorylation and SMAD2/3 phosphorylation were assessed by western blot analysis. The results indicated that celecoxib could suppress cell proliferation stimulated by FGF-2 (IC(50) FGF+group, 75±1.9μmol/l) and TGF-β1 (IC(50) TGF+group, 48±1.4μmol/l), by inhibiting ERK1/2 phosphorylation but not ERK1/2 expression. Celecoxib also suppressed collagen expression (0.35-fold COL3 and 0.43-fold COL1 at 320μmol/l celecoxib relative to the untreated control after stimulation with TGF-β1 for 3h, P<0.01), by inhibiting SMAD2/3 phosphorylation but not SMAD2/3 expression. The suppression of NIH/3T3 fibroblast proliferation and collagen expression upon stimulation by FGF-2 and TGF-β1 is likely a result of the inhibition of ERK1/2 and SMAD2/3 phosphorylation by celecoxib.

    ABSTRACT: A case of type II odontoid fracture with irreducible posterior dislocation is presented. Cervical traction was employed but reduction could not be achieved with up to 15 kg of traction. The patient was treated with intraoperative transoral open reduction combined with anterior-posterior fixation. Rigid fixation and bone union were obtained without any complication in the 12-month follow-up. The patient has restricted C-spine rotation but no neck pain with movement. Transoral open reduction may be considered in patients with irreducible posteriorly displaced odontoid fracture.

    ABSTRACT: According to Lenke classification of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS), patients with type 5 curve in which the structural major curve is thoracolumbar or lumbar curve with nonstructural proximal thoracic and main thoracic curves, could be surgically treated with selective anterior thoracolumbar or lumbar (TL/L) fusion. This study retrospectively analyzed the radiographies of selective anterior TL/L fusion in 35 cases of AIS with Lenke type 5 curve. Segmental fixation with a single rigid rod through anterior thoracoabdominal approach was applied in all patients. Measurements of scoliosis curve in preoperative, immediate postoperative and follow-up radiographies were analyzed. The average follow up time was 36 months (24-42 months). The average preoperative Cobb angle of the TL/L curve was 45.6 degrees and improved into 9.7 degrees immediate postoperatively, with 79.7% curve correction. In addition, the minor thoracic curve decreased from 29.7 degrees preoperatively to 17.6 degrees postoperatively, with a spontaneous correction of 41.5%. During the follow-up, a loss of 4.6 degrees correction was found and the average Cobb angle of TL/L increased to 14.4 degrees . Also, the minor thoracic curve increased to average 20.1 degrees with a loss of 2.4 degrees correction. Trunk shift deteriorated slightly immediate postoperatively and improved at the follow-up. The lowest instrumented vertebra (LIV) tilt was improved significantly and maintained its results at the follow-up. During the follow-up, the coronal disc angle immediately above the upper instrumented vertebra (UIVDA) and below the LIV (LIVDA) aggravated, while the sagittal contours of T5-T12 and T10-L2 were well maintained. The lumbar lordosis of L1-S1 and the sagittal Cobb angle of the instrumented segments were reduced slightly postoperatively and at the follow-up. There were no major complications or pseudarthrosis. The outcomes of this study show that selective anterior thoracolumbar or lumbar fusion with solid rod instrumentation is effective for surgical correction of AIS with Lenke type 5 curve. The TL/L curve, minor thoracic curve, and LIV title can be improved significantly, with good maintenance of sagittal contour. However, the UIVDA and LIVDA aggravate postoperatively when the trunk rebalances itself during follow-up. The degeneration of LIV disc warrants longer-term follow-up.
