Studies have shown that traditional Chinese medicine Salvianolic acid B (SAB) can promote the proliferation and migration of endothelial cells. Heparin has a good anticoagulant effect. The inner layer of artificial vascular graft is fabricated by coaxial electrospinning method, and loaded with heparin and SAB. The release of heparin and SAB was sustained for almost 30 days, and SAB without initial burst release. Furthermore, the combined effect of SAB and heparin contributed to promoted Human Umbilical Vein Endothelial Cells (HUVECs) growth and improved blood compatibility of graft...

OBJECTIVES: Ventricular assist devices (VAD) are increasingly implanted in patients with terminal heart failure. Here we describe the clinical course, management and outcome of VAD patients with S. aureus bloodstream infection (SAB). METHODS: We conducted a post hoc analysis of data from 1073 patients who had been prospectively enrolled in two consecutive SAB bicenter cohort studies. Patients with VAD in situ at the onset of SAB were identified. Follow-up of patients was at least 90 days...

Objective: The aim of this study is to discuss the effects and mechanism of salvianolic acid B (SAB) on the proliferation and apoptosis of human nasal polyps fibroblasts (NPFs). Method: The NPFs were treated with SAB at different concentrations (5, 10, 20, 40 μmol/L). CCK-8 assay was used to determine the inhibition of SAB on the proliferation of NPFs and determined the optimum concentration for the following experiments. The NPFs were divided into four groups: a) control group: the cells were cultured in DMEM without TGF-β1 or salvianolic acid B; b) the TGF-β1 group: the cells were cultured in DMEM containing 5 ng/ml TGF-β1; c) the SAB group: the cells were cultured in DMEM containing SAB at the optimum concentration by CCK-8 assay; d) the TGF-β1+SAB treatment groups: the cells were cultured in DMEM containing 5 ng/ml TGF-β1 and SAB at the optimum concentration by CCK-8 assay...

INTRODUCTION: The effects of multiple inherited and acquired thrombophilic defects on the outcome of in-vitro fertilization (IVF) remain unexplored. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between multiple thrombophilia and clinical outcomes in a large prospective cohort of women undergoing IVF. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Consecutive women scheduled for IVF were eligible. The primary study outcome was live birth. Secondary outcomes included spontaneous abortion, clinical pregnancy, and symptomatic venous thromboembolism...

Physiological studies in animals and human support an important role of circadian system in reproduction. The aim of this study was to investigate the potential association of CLOCK gene polymorphisms with idiopathic recurrent spontaneous abortion (IRSA). We performed a case-control study. The study group consisted of 268 women with a history of three or more idiopathic recurrent spontaneous abortions and 284 women with at least two live births and no history of pathologic pregnancies all from Slovenia and Serbia...

PURPOSE: Access to claims databases provides an opportunity to study medication use and safety during pregnancy. We developed an algorithm to identify pregnancy episodes in the French health care databases and applied it to study antiepileptic drug (AED) use during pregnancy between 2007 and 2014. METHODS: The algorithm searched the French health care databases for discharge diagnoses and medical procedures indicative of completion of a pregnancy. To differentiate claims associated with separate pregnancies, an interval of at least 28 weeks was required between 2 consecutive pregnancies resulting in a birth and 6 weeks for terminations of pregnancy...

Ibuprofen is an analgesic frequently used in the 1st and 2nd trimester of pregnancy. Most relevant studies deal with NSAID as a group and do not specifically focus on ibuprofen. In this study, 1117 women exposed to ibuprofen in the 1st trimester were compared to 2229 non-exposed women. Data were retrieved from the German Embryotox database. No significantly increased risk of major birth defects (4.8% vs. 4.1%; OR adjusted 1.11, 95% CI 0.75-1.64) or a distinct pattern of birth defects were found. The cumulative incidences of spontaneous abortions were similar across cohorts (15...

Staphylococcus aureus is a common cause of bloodstream infection and methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) is a growing threat worldwide. We evaluated the incidence rate of S. aureus bacteremia (SAB) and MRSA from population-based surveillance in all hospitals from two Thai provinces. Infections were classified as community-onset (CO) when blood cultures were obtained ≤ 2 days after hospital admission and as hospital-onset (HO) thereafter. The incidence rate of HO-SAB could only be calculated for 2009-2014 when hospitalization denominator data were available...

BACKGROUND: Antibody-mediated rejection (ABMR) remains associated with reduced kidney graft survival and no clear prognostic marker is available. METHODS: We investigated whether donor-specific antibodies (DSA) ability to bind C1q in comparison with ABMR C4d status, both indirect signs of complement activation, improve risk stratification at time of ABMR. Hence, among 467 patients in whom ≥1 graft biopsy was performed between 2008 and 2015, we included 56 with ABMR according to Banff'15 criteria...

OBJECTIVE: Epithelioid trophoblastic tumor (ETT) is a rare variant of gestational trophoblastic neoplasia that develops from chorionic-type intermediate trophoblast, simulates carcinoma, presents years after a pregnancy event, is associated with low or normal human chorionic gonadotropin levels, and is relatively resistant to chemotherapy. Our aim was to identify the role of surgery in combination with platinum/etoposide-based chemotherapy in the management of both localized and metastatic ETT...

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) occurs in 2-9% of all pregnancies. Evidence suggests that the use of insulin in treating hyperglycemia in GDM patients reduces the risk of perinatal morbidity. Pregnancy is an exciting time in a woman's life. However, once patient is diagnosed with GDM, she will be managed more intensively. GDM is managed using diet and exercise but one in six women with GDM requires insulin. A 35-year-old woman at the 14th gestational week of her tenth pregnancy was seen for routine prenatal care...

OBJECTIVES: Staphylococcus aureus bacteraemia (SAB) is a common infection associated with significant short-term mortality. Little is known about long-term prognosis. The aim of this study was to determine one-year all-cause mortality and infection-related mortality and associated predictors. METHODS: Data from 303 consecutive patients with SAB were prospectively collected from March 2011 to February 2014. All patients were followed one year or until death. RESULTS: One-year all-cause- and infection-related mortality were 36...

STUDY QUESTION: Is aberrant expression of gene associated with retinoid-interferon-induced mortality-19 (GRIM-19) associated with unexplained recurrent spontaneous abortion (URSA)? SUMMARY ANSWER: GRIM-19 deficiency may regulate regulatory T cell/ T helper 17 cell (Treg/Th17) balance partly through reactive oxygen species (ROS) - mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) signaling axis in URSA. WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY: Immunological disorders may cause impaired maternal immune tolerance to the fetus and result in fetal rejection...

INTRODUCTION: Renal transplantation became a routine and successful medical treatment for Chronic Kidney Disease in the last 30 years all over the world. Introduction of Luminex based Single Antigen Beads (SAB) and recent BANFF consensus of histopathological phenotypes of different forms of rejection enables more precise diagnosis and changes the therapeutic approach. The graft biopsies, protocol or cause, indicated, remain a golden diagnostic tool for clinical follow up of kidney transplant recipients (KTR)...

Meerkats are group-living, insectivorous herpestids in which subordinate members provide extensive care for the dominant female's young. In contrast to some cooperative breeders, subordinate female meerkats are physiologically able to reproduce and occasionally do so successfully; their attempts are more frequently 'suppressed' via eviction or infanticide by the dominant female. Spontaneous abortion and neonatal loss occur with some regularity, further negatively impacting reproductive success. Here, we compared the reproductive outcomes and endocrine profiles, including of serum progesterone (P4 ), serum estradiol (E2 ), and fecal glucocorticoid metabolites (fGCm), of dominant and subordinate dams residing within their clans in the Kalahari Desert of South Africa...
