Effect of High Intensity Interval Training on Blood Glucose Control in Experimental Animal of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

Subjects: Medicine, Pharmacy >> Preclinical Medicine

?Objective?To explore the effect of high intensity interval training (HIIT) on blood glucose control in experimental animal of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and to evaluate the quality of the included studies.?Methods?literatures were obtained?by searching PubMed, EMbase, Web of Science, BIOSIS Preview and Cochrane Library. Chinese literatures?were obtained through CNKI, WanFang Data, SinoMed and VIP Database; The collection and screening studies were conducted in strict accordance with inclusion/exclusion criteria. The methodological quality and reporting quality of the included studies were evaluated using SYRCLE's risk of bias tool for animal studies?(SYRCLE) and Animal Research: Reporting In Vivo Experiments guidelines 2.0(ARRIVE2.0). Outcomes,such as body weight (BW), fasting blood glucose (FBG), fasting insulin (FINS), homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance?(HOMA)?were meta-analyzed and evaluated by Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE).?Results?Twenty studies were included, including male mice (9) or rats (11).?T2DM models have been developed mainly in two ways: high-fat diet and/or combined with streptozotocin (STZ) injection (15 articles), genetic modification (5 articles). Exercise and interval intensity are measured using VO2 max, maximum speed and slope, with 1-4.5 minutes of exercise and 15 second -3 minutes of interval, and the training duration was 8-13 weeks with 3-5 times of training a week.?The SYRCLE’s result?was mainly uncertain;None of the single items or the single studies assessed by?ARRIVE 2.0 appeared complete. Standardized mean difference (SMD) combined the effect size of outcomes showed that compared with the sedentary control group, the heterogeneity was all large, and there?are?significant differences in FBG, HOMA.?Very low quality of all evidence assessed by GRADE.?Conclusions?The effect of HIIT on blood glucose control is clear, but the influencing factors are complex, the risk of bias is high, the quality of reporting is low, the source of heterogeneity in outcomes is complex, and the quality of evidence is extremely low, which make its reliability and validity are questioned. It is recommended to use ARRIVE2.0 as a guide to increase the integrity and transparency of research information and improve research quality through experimental protocol registration and attachments.

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.

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.

Objective: Therapeutic tumor vaccines are eagerly awaited in clinic by patients with high expectations; however, very few clinically successful tumor vaccine has been developed thus far, and there remains no consensus on the generation of tumor vaccines. We hypothesized that targeted delivery of pan-tumor antigens instead of individual tumor-associated antigen (TAA) to dendritic cells via the activating receptor endocytic pathway (AREP) would provide an alternative avenue to develop potent personalized tumor vaccines. Methods: We first prepared biotin-tagged tumor antigens (B-TAgs) with mouse CT26. WT colorectal cancer cells by exploiting metabolic glycan labeling and bioorthogonal reaction methods; then, we prepared a bifunctional fusion protein containing streptavidin and a mouse IgG2a Fc fragment (SA-Fc), in which streptavidin was used for conjugation with B-TAgs, and Fc for mediating the interaction with the Fcγ receptor. Finally, conjugates (Fc-TAgs) of SA-Fc with B-TAgs were prepared based on affinity-guided noncovalent reaction. The phenotype of Fc-TAgs pulsed bone marrow-derived dendritic cells (BMDCs) was examined by flow cytometry. The therapeutic effects of Fc-TAgs pulsed BMDCs were observed in an established mouse CT26. WT colorectal cancer model. Results: The prepared B-TAgs covers almost all glycosylated tumor antigens. SA-Fc fusion protein exhibits biotin-binding activity as a homodimer. SA-Fc can effectively conjugate with B-TAg at a mixing ratio of 1:96 (w/w). Data of flow cytometry revealed that on Fc-TAgs pulsed BMDCs, the expression levels of surface molecules, such as CD80 and MHC II, were greatly increased. In the established murine colorectal cancer model, combination treatments with Fc-TAgs pulsed BMDCs and PD-1 blockade achieved significant therapeutic effects. Limitations: The strategy we proposed for the preparation of personalized tumor vaccine requires that the tumor be surgically removed from the patient. The rationality and validity of this strategy need to be proven by more preclinical investigations. Conclusions: The novel strategy we proposed circumvents the necessities for neoantigen prediction and provides an alternative pathway to establish a flexible system for the preparation of personalized dendritic cell tumor vaccines. In the setting of checkpoint blockade-based immunotherapy, a novel DCV would improve antitumor immunity and benefit the eradication of tumor residues within the body of the cancer patients.

ACE2 shedding and furin abundance in target organs may influence the efficiency of SARS-CoV-2 entry

Subjects: Medicine, Pharmacy >> Preclinical Medicine

Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is a recently identified lineage B coronavirus, causing rapid worldwide outbreak of Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). Despite genetically closed to SARS-CoV, SARS-CoV-2 seems to possess enhanced infectivity and subtle different clinical features, which may hamper the early screening of suspected patients as well as the control of virus transmission. Unfortunately, there are few tools to predict the potential target organ damage and possible clinical manifestations caused by such novel coronavirus. To solve this problem, we investigate the potential host cell entry mechanisms of SARS-CoV-2 through bioinformatics. Using the online single-cell sequence datasets, we analyze the expression of major receptor in host cells that mediates the virus entry, including angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), and its co-expressed membrane endopeptidases. The results indicated the differential expression of ADAM10 and ADAM17 might contribute to the ACE2 shedding and affect the membrane ACE2 abundance. We further confirm a putative furin-cleavage site reported recently in the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2, which may facilitate the virus-cell fusion. Based on these findings, we develop a novel approach that comprehensively analyzed the virus receptor expression, ACE2 shedding, membrane fusion activity, virus uptake and virus replication to evaluate the infectivity of SARS-CoV-2 to different human organs. Our results indicate that, in addition to airway epithelia, cardiac tissue and enteric canals are susceptible to SARS-CoV-2 as well.
