Pathological neovascularization, a leading cause of blindness, is seen in retinopathy of prematurity, diabetic retinopathy, and age-related macular degeneration. Using a mouse model of hypoxia-driven retinal neovascularization, we find that fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21) administration suppresses, and FGF21 deficiency worsens, retinal neovessel growth. The protective effect of FGF21 against neovessel growth was abolished in adiponectin (APN)-deficient mice. FGF21 administration also decreased neovascular lesions in two models of neovascular age-related macular degeneration: very-low-density lipoprotein-receptor-deficient mice with retinal angiomatous proliferation and laser-induced choroidal neovascularization...

BACKGROUND: Exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation may benefit adults with atrial fibrillation or those who had been treated for atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation is caused by multiple micro re-entry circuits within the atrial tissue, which result in chaotic rapid activity in the atria. OBJECTIVES: To assess the benefits and harms of exercise-based rehabilitation programmes, alone or with another intervention, compared with no-exercise training controls in adults who currently have AF, or have been treated for AF...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: A considerable number of early stage colorectal cancer (CRC) patients may develop cancer relapse or metastasis after curative surgery. Isolated tumor cells (ITC) and micrometastasis in lymph nodes (LNMM), which are undetectable by conventional pathological examination, may be one primary reason. Detection of ITC/LNMM is time-consuming and cost-ineffective, we aimed to find biomarkers in primary CRC tissues to help predicting ITC/LNMM status. METHODS: We enrolled 137 node-negative patients with early stage CRC in this study...

A remote-node heterodyne millimeter-wave radio-over-fiber (MMW-RoF) link was proposed by a dual-mode optical carrier with orthogonal polarizations and single-wavelength modulation, which effectively suppresses the chromatic dispersion and four-wave mixing. For optical wireline transmission, the bit error rate (BER) of a 25-km single-mode fiber (SMF) transmitted baseband 24-Gbit/s 64-QAM OFDM can be improved to 5.9×10<sup>-4</sup> with an error vector magnitude (EVM) of 7.1%. Moreover, the beat 35-GHz MMW carrier with a 32-dB carrier-to-noise ratio was generated for wireless transmission...

Gemcitabine and cisplatin is the first line chemotherapy for non-small cell lung cancer with high toxicity. Aidi injection is a cantharidin and astragalu-based Chinese herbs injection in China. Has Aidi injection attenuation and synergistic efficacy to GP in NSCLC? There is lack of strong evidence to prove it. To further reveal it, we systematically evaluated all related studies. We collected all studies about Aidi injection plus GP for NSCLC in Medline, Embase, Web of Science, CNKI, VIP, Wanfang Database, CBM, CCRCT, Chi-CTR, and US-clinical trials (established to June 2015)...

Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), an omega-3 fatty acid abundant in fish oil, protects endothelial cells (EC) from lipotoxicity and triggers EC NO release. The latter is related to an elevation of cytosolic Ca(2+). Although EPA has been shown to cause human EC cytosolic Ca(2+) elevation, the mechanism is unclear. Microfluorimetric imaging was used here to measure free cytosolic Ca(2+) concentration. EPA was shown to cause intracellular Ca(2+) release in mouse cerebral cortex endothelial bEND.3 cells; interestingly, the EPA-sensitive intracellular Ca(2+) pool(s) appeared to encompass and was larger than the Ca(2+) pool mobilized by sarcoplasmic-endoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+)-ATPase inhibition by cyclopiazonic acid...

The thalamus and hippocampus have been found both involved in the initiation, propagation, and termination of temporal lobe epilepsy. However, the interaction of these regions during seizures is not clear. The present study is to explore whether some regular patterns exist in their interaction during the termination of seizures. Multichannel in vivo recording techniques were used to record the neural activities from the cornu ammonis 1 (CA1) of hippocampus and mediodorsal thalamus (MDT) in mice. The mice were kindled by electrically stimulating basolateral amygdala neurons, and Racine's rank standard was employed to classify the stage of behavioral responses (stage 1~5)...

BACKGROUND: Brugada syndrome (BrS), a disorder associated with characteristic electrocardiogram precordial ST-segment elevation, predisposes afflicted patients to ventricular fibrillation and sudden cardiac death. Despite marked achievements in outlining the organ level pathophysiology of the disorder, the understanding of human cellular phenotype has lagged due to a lack of adequate human cellular models of the disorder. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to examine single cell mechanism of Brugada syndrome using induced pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes (iPSC-CMs)...

Synthetic pathways to complex meroterpenes derived from 3,5-dimethylorsellinic acid (DMOA) and farnesyl pyrophosphate have not been reported despite heavy biosynthetic and medicinal interest. Herein we report the first total synthesis of berkeleyone A, a potential gateway compound to a plethora of fungal-derived meroterpenes, in 13 steps. In addition, we have further developed a novel annulation reaction for the synthesis of hydroxylated 1,3-cyclohexadiones in a single step.

Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP‑NETs) are relatively uncommon. Unfortunately, epidemiological studies on the incidence of GEP‑NETs worldwide have reported a marked increase in the detection of these tumors. Although they often exhibit relatively indolent clinical courses, GEP‑NETs have the potential for lethal progression, especially in patients who present with advanced disease. Early detection and surgical removal is currently the only reliable curative treatment for GEP‑NET patients...

Neovascular eye diseases including retinopathy of prematurity, diabetic retinopathy and age-related-macular-degeneration are major causes of blindness. Fenofibrate treatment in type 2 diabetes patients reduces progression of diabetic retinopathy independent of its peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)α agonist lipid lowering effect. The mechanism is unknown. Fenofibrate binds to and inhibits cytochrome P450 epoxygenase (CYP)2C with higher affinity than to PPARα. CYP2C metabolizes ω-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFAs)...
