Hematotoxicity of intratracheally instilled arsenic trioxide in rats

treated with 0.1, 1.0, and 10.0 mg/mL ATO solution, respectively. Taking the last exposure time as the experimental starting point, blood (5 mL) was collected via the abdominal aorta into EDTA-K vacuum blood collection tubes at 6, 12, 24, 48, and 72 h and analyzed using a fully automated blood analyzer. 2.4 Statistical analyses Analysis was conducted using SPSS 18.0. The results were expressed as the mean ± standard deviation. Groups were compared by one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA), followed by the Student–Newman–Keuls (SNK) post-hoc test.

Research progress in the correlation between oral and stomach Hpinfections

] divided the patients into two groups, with group A as gastric Hp-positive patients and group B as gastric Hp-negative patients. The same method was used to detect oral Hp in the two groups, and the results showed that the oral positive rate was higher in group A than in group B. This result indicated that oral Hp and stomach Hp had certain correlation. Assumpção et al . [ 12 ] studied a total of 99 patients with dyspepsia and used PCR to compare and analyze Hp in the oral cavity and gastric mucosa of the same patient. The Hp genotype in the oral cavity was found to be

Research progress on the correlation between gestational vaginal microecology and vaginal infectious diseases

vaginal infectious diseases. This result has been highly valued by clinicians in recent years [ 1 , 2 ]. This review summarizes the correlation between vaginal microecology and vaginal infection during the gestation period by reviewing recent clinical literature to improve the understanding of clinicians and perfect the treatment scheme for vaginal microecological-related diseases during pregnancy. 1 Summary of vaginal microecology 1.1 Summary The vagina is a cavity that connects directly to the outside world and consists of a layer of microbes on its surface

The Correlation between Gene Polymorphism and Hepatocellular Carcinoma

Abstract

The association of gene polymorphism and susceptibility to hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has been widely studied in recent years. Gene mutations are closely related to HCC. Understanding and measuring the gene mutations are useful to reduce the incidence of HCC and improve its prognosis.

Correlation between the Insertion/Deletion Mutations of Prion Protein Gene and BSE Susceptibility and Milk Performance in Dairy Cows

Abstract

Objective To investigate the 23 bp and 12 bp insertion/deletion (indel) mutations within the bovine prion protein (PRNP) gene in Chinese dairy cows, and to detect the associations of two indel mutations with BSE susceptibility and milk performance.

Methods Based on bovine PRNP gene sequence, two pairs of primers for testing the 23 bp and 12 bp indel mutations were designed. The PCR amplification and agarose electrophoresis were carried out to distinguish the different genotypes within the mutations. Moreover, based on previous data from other cattle breeds and present genotypic and allelic frequencies of two indels mutations in this study, the corrections between the two indel mutations and BSE susceptibility were tested, as well as the relationships between the mutations and milk performance traits were analyzed in this study based on the statistical analyses.

Results In the analyzed Chinese Holstein population, the frequencies of two “del” alleles in 23 bp and 12 bp indel muations were more frequent. The frequency of haplotype of 23del-12del was higher than those of 23del- 12ins and 23ins-12del. From the estimated r2 and D’ values, two indel polymorphisms were linked strongly in the Holstein population (D’ = 57.5%, r2 = 0.257). Compared with the BSE-affected cattle populations from the reported data, the significant differences of genotypic and allelic frequencies were found among present Holstein and some BSE-affected populations (P < 0.05 or P < 0.01). Similarly, there were significant frequency distribution differences of genotypes and alleles among Chinese Holstein and several previous reported healthy dairy cattle (P < 0.05 or P < 0.01). Moreover, association of genotype and combined genotypes of two indel polymorphisms with milk performance and resistant mastitis traits were analyzed in Holstein population, but no significant differences were found (P > 0.05).

Conclusions These observations revealed that the influence of two indel mutations within the bovine PRNP gene on BSE depended on the breed and they did not affect the milk production traits, which layed the foundation for future selection of resistant animals, and for improving health conditions for dairy breeding against BSE in China.
