By re-analzying public metagenomic data from 101 patients infected with influenza A virus during the 2007-2012 H1N1 flu seasons in France, we identified 22 samples with SARS-CoV sequences. In 3 of them, the SARS genome sequences could be fully assembled out of each. These sequences are highly similar (99.99% and 99.7%) to the artificially constructed recombinant 5 SARS-CoV (SARSr-CoV) strains generated by the J. Craig Venter Institute in USA. Moreover, samples from different flu seasons have different SARS-CoV strains, and the divergence between these strains cannot be explained by natural evolution. Our study also shows that retrospective studies using public metagenomic data from past major epidemic outbreaks serves as a genomic strategy for the research of origins or spread of infectious diseases.

On the origin of SARS-CoV-2–The blind watchmaker argument

In the comparison with SARS-CoV of 2003, SARS-CoV-2 is extremely well adapted to the human populations and its adaptive shift from the animal host to humans must have been even more extensive. By the blind watchmaker argument, such an adaptive shift can only happen prior to the onset of the current pandemic and with the aid of step-by-step selection. In this view, SARS-CoV-2 could not have possibly evolved in an animal market in a big city and even less likely in a laboratory. Discussions of the origin of SARS-CoV-2 need to factor in the long process of adaptive shift and some models have indeed advanced in that direction.

GT198蛋白是抗癌化药和抗癌草药的靶点

肿瘤血管生成是癌症的一个特征。一些抗血管生成的抗癌药物已被证明临床有疗效。我们之前的研究显示,在包括口腔癌在内的人类实体瘤中,GT198 蛋白(基因符号PSMC3IP,又称为Hop2)是一个诱导血管生成的癌蛋白。本研究结果表明,十几种临床抗癌化疗药物,和几种临床成功的抗癌草药,都能直接抑制GT198蛋白靶点。GT198是一个能与DNA结合的DNA修复蛋白。利用体外DNA结合法检测GT198活性,我们测试了129个美国NCI收集的临床抗癌化疗药物。发现体外直接抑制GT198的化药包括但不限于米托蒽醌、多柔比星(阿霉素)、紫杉醇、依托泊苷、放线菌素D和伊马替尼(格列卫)。紫杉醇和依托泊苷具有较高的结合亲和力,而多柔比星由于竞争性抑制GT198,具有较高的结合效力。由于GT198与DNA拓扑异构酶有蛋白序列同源性,而DNA拓扑异构酶是过去认为的药物靶点,因此,GT198蛋白很可能是个以前未被认知的药物新靶点。为了寻求更高效的GT198抑制剂,我们进一步测试了几种抗癌草药的提取物。发现具有高亲和力和高效力的阳性抑制草药都是临床上已经有成功历史的抗癌草药,包括牙买加的多香果(Allspice)、中国的皂角刺(Gleditsia sinensis L.),和厄瓜多尔的BIRM。我们使用有机化学方法对多香果进行了部分纯化,证明用GT198为靶标,以体外DNA结合法追踪测活,可以高效快速纯化天然产物。综上表明,此项研究揭示了GT198是多种抗癌化药的新靶点。这项研究还提供了一个鉴定化合物与纯化天然产物的优异药物靶标。特别关键的是,这项研究为快速分离高效低毒的抗癌中草药提供了绝佳机会。

利用一对多尿液蛋白质组比较为发热待查提供线索

发热待查是指不明原因的发热,尽管医疗诊断技术在不断发展,但是发热待查仍旧是亟待解决的难题。尿液是机体排泄代谢废物的一种途径,由于不受到稳态调节机制的影响,尿液能反映机体产生的微小变化,比血液更早期、更敏感。在本研究中,我们对收集的尿液样本采用一对多的尿液蛋白质组比较方法,即一个病人和一组健康人样本对比分析的方法,旨在通过差异蛋白来寻找与疾病相关的生物学通路,为发热待查的临床诊断提供线索和依据。分析结果表明,差异蛋白富集到的生物学通路与发热有关,尿蛋白质组能够提供病人和健康人的区别;同时一对多的研究方法能为发热待查患者提供个性化的线索,也是未来探索病人未知疾病的一个方法。

二维光学刺激下的视觉感知定律

Subjects: Engineering and technical science >> Optical Engineering

人类对刺激量的感知分为数量感知和质量感知。无论是韦伯-费克纳(Weber-Fechner)的对数感觉定律还是史蒂文斯(Stevens)的幂函数感觉定律,都是关于感觉量与一维亮度刺激之间定量关系的定律。图像属于具有二维亮度分布特征的刺激量。本文研究的是二维亮度刺激的质量的感知,即二维亮度刺激质量好坏程度的感知。好坏程度是一个模糊的心理学概念,因此我们需要用模糊数学的方法来量化图像视觉感知质量的好坏程度,即建立一个模糊隶属函数PQ来定量表示图像视觉质量的好与坏的程度。

Subjects: Medicine, Pharmacy >> Clinical Medicine

Sepsis is an essential issue in critical care medicine, and early detection and intervention are key for survival. We established the sepsis early warning system based on a data integration platform that can be implemented in ICU. The sepsis early warning module can detect the onset of sepsis 5 hours proceeding, and the data integration platform integrates, standardizes, and stores information from different medical devices, making the inference of the early warning module possible. Our best early warning model got an AUC of 0.9833 in the task of detect sepsis in 4 hours proceeding on the open-source database. Our data integration platform has already been operational in a hospital for months.

Bacterial and viral therapies of cancer background, mechanism and perspective

Qinglin Dong, Xiangying Xing
Subjects: Medicine, Pharmacy >> Preclinical Medicine

Bacterial and viral therapies of cancer are highly promising, yet their mechanisms are incompletely understood, hindering their improvement and application. In this paper, We (1) review briefly the genesis and progress of bacterial and viral therapies of cancer, (2) compare and evaluate the proposed mechanisms of bacterial and viral therapies of cancer and present the unifying mechanism that bacteria/viruses stimulate cancer cells to produce antibacterial/antiviral proteins, which also serve as the responsive cancer antigens triggering host anticancer immune response, and (3) provide a perspective on the exploitation of non-human and non-animal bacteria and viruses, particularly protist-infecting bacteria and viruses and bacterial virus (bacteriophage/phage), for cancer treatment and prevention.

目的 探索应用改良No-touch技术建立兔颈总动脉-颈外静脉内瘘模型的可能性。 方法 2021年02月08日至2021年02月22日,将10只雄性新西兰兔随机等分为实验组与假手术组。实验组在内瘘手术时不剥离静脉周围组织,即改良No-touch技术处理颈外静脉,建立颈总动脉-颈外静脉内瘘。假手术组探查到血管后不吻合血管。术后14 d使用CDU评估内瘘血管内径及血流频谱变化、苏木精 - 伊红(H-E)染色观察动静脉内瘘建立后内膜增生情况,并取兔颈外静脉血行血气分析。 结果 实验组兔均顺利成功完成动静脉内瘘手术,成功率100%。术后14 d CDU评估结果显示实验组兔颈外静脉较假手术组明显扩张(P=0.016)、收缩期峰值流速(PSV)明显增加(P=0.015)。在实验组兔内瘘动脉及流出道静脉观察到“双向血流”频谱,提示血流为螺旋层流。H-E染色结果显示,实验组兔颈外静脉内弹力膜破坏、内膜厚度较假手术组明显增加(P<0.001)。实验组兔颈外静脉血PO2较假手术组明显升高(P=0.006)。结论 应用改良No-touch技术可成功建立兔颈总动脉-颈外静脉内瘘,成功率高,重复性好,为进一步研究改良No-touch技术在动静脉内瘘手术中的应用提供理想的动物模型。
