Macrophage-derived exosomes accelerate wound healing through their anti-inflammation effects in a diabetic rat model

Mengdie Li, Tao Wang, He Tian, Guohua Wei, Liang Zhao & Yijie Shi
Chronic, subclinical inflammation was often observed in the diabetic wound area, causing inadequate and delayed wound-healing effects by failing to initiate cell migration, proliferation, and extracellular matrix deposition. Therefore, we presented macrophage-derived exosomes (Exos) and explored their potential for inhibiting inflammation and accelerating diabetic wound healing in a skin defect, diabetic rat model. A thorough investigation demonstrated that Exos exerted anti-inflammatory effects by inhibiting the secretion of pro-inflammatory enzymes and cytokines. Furthermore, they accelerated the...

Updated distribution map of species in the Drosophila ananassae complex (Diptera: Drosophilidae)

Shane McEvey, MICHELE SCHIFFER & Michal Polak
The distribution of species of the Drosophila ananassae complex on islands of the Pacific, Australia and New Guinea have been of interest to taxonomists, geneticists, and evolutionists for more than 80 years (Tobari, 1993). Polymorphism in pigmentation, in courtship and sexual behaviour, in polytene chromosomes, in male genital morphology, and in nuclear and mitochondrial DNA, correlate with isolated island populations, especially those at altitude on higher islands. Species’ distributions have been mapped by McEvey &...

High anal swab viral load predisposes adverse clinical outcomes in severe COVID-19 patients

Haibo Li, Lili Ren, Lulu Zhang, Yeming Wang, Li Guo, Conghui Wang, Yan Xiao, Ying Wang, Jian Rao, Xinming Wang, Ying Liu, Chaolin Huang, Xiaoying Gu, Guohui Fan, Hui Li, Binghuai Lu, Bin Cao & Jianwei Wang
To identify the association between the kinetics of viral load and clinical outcome in severe coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) patients, a retrospective study was performed by involved 188 hospitalized severe COVID-19 patients in the LOTUS China trial. Among the collected 578 paired throat swab (TS) and anal swab (AS) samples, viral RNA was detected in 193 (33.4%) TS and 121 (20.9%) AS. A higher viral RNA load was found in TS than that of AS,...

The effect of amiloride in decreasing albuminuria in patients with diabetic kidney diseases: a prospective, crossover, open-label study

Ruizhao Li, Zhiyong Xie, Li Zhang, Ying Huang, Jianchao Ma, Wei Dong, Zhilian Li, Yuanhan Chen, Huaban Liang, Yanhua Wu, Xingchen Zhao, Wenjian Wang, Zhiming Ye, Shuangxin Liu, Wei Shi & Xinling Liang
Diabetic kidney diseases (DKD) were the leading cause of End-stage renal diseases worldwide. Albuminuria was a target for treatment in DKD and decreasing albuminuria was particularly important for improving its prognosis. However, there is still a lack of specific treatment for DKD. We conducted a prospective, crossover, open-label study to investigate the effect of amiloride in patients with DKD. Safety and efficacy were assessed by monitoring urine protein creatinine ratio(uPCR), urinary albumin creatinine ratio (uACR),...

Self-reported snoring is associated with chronic kidney disease in obese but not in normal-weight Chinese adults

Ziyun Jiang, Jun Qin, Kai Liang, Ruxing Zhao, Fei Yan, Xinguo Hou, Chuan Wang & Li Chen
The relationship between sleeping disorders and chronic kidney disease (CKD) has already been reported. Snoring, a common clinical manifestation of obstructive sleep apnea–hypopnea syndrome, is of clinical value in assessing sleeping disorder severity. However, investigations of the connection between snoring and CKD are limited, especially in normal-weight populations. This study assessed the relationship between snoring frequency and CKD in obese and normal-weight people in China. A community-based retrospective cross-sectional study of 3250 participants was performed....

Predictive factors and nomogram to evaluate the risk of below-ankle re-amputation in patients with diabetic foot

Wentong Dai, Yuan Li, Zexin Huang, Cai Lin, Xing-xing Zhang & Weidong Xia
Diabetes mellitus, as the most common metabolic disease, is common worldwide and represents a crucial global health concern. The purpose of this research was to investigate the related risk factors and to develop a re-amputation risk nomogram in diabetic patients who have undergone an amputation. A observational analysis was performed on 459 patients who have underwent amputation for diabetic foot from January 2014 through December 2019 at the First Affiliated Hospital of Wenzhou Medical University....
