Elective single versus double blastocyst-stage embryo transfer in women aged 36 years or older: a retrospective cohort study

He Cai, Ben Mol, Stephan Gordts, Hui Wang & Juanzi Shi
We evaluated if elective single-blastocyst transfer (eSBT) could be adopted in women aged 36 or older. In this retrospective cohort, women aged ≥36 years received IVF ovarian stimulation cycles and had ≥ two blastocysts. A total of 240 women underwent eSBT and 189 double-blastocyst transfer (DBT) in the first transfer cycle. The subsequent frozen-thawed embryo transfer cycles were a combination of single- and double- blastocyst transfers. Analysis was stratified for patients in age groups 36–37,...

Meng Li, Liping Lu, Mingcheng Guo, Qi Jiang, Lan Xia, Yuan Jiang, Shu Zhang, Yong Qiu, Chongguang Yang, Yiwang Chen, Jianjun Hong, Xiaoqin Guo, Howard Takiff, Xin Shen, Chuang Chen & Qian Gao
The fitness of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) is thought to be an important determinant of a strain’s ability to be transmitted and cause outbreaks. Studies in the laboratory have demonstrated that MDR-TB strains have reduced fitness but the relative transmissibility of MDR-TB versus drug-susceptible (DS) TB strains in human populations remains unresolved. We used data on genomic clustering from our previous molecular epidemiological study in Songjiang (2011-2020) and Wusheng (2009-2020), China, to compare the relative transmissibility...

Candida parapsilosis is becoming a predominant non-albicans cause of invasive candidiasis (IC). Echinocandins are the preferred choice for IC treatment and prophylaxis. Resistance to echinocandins in C. parapsilosis has emerged in several countries, but little is known about the susceptibility profile in China or about mechanisms of resistance. Here, we investigated the echinocandin susceptibilities of 2523 C. parapsilosis isolates collected from China and further explored the resistance mechanism among echinocandin-resistant isolates. Anidulafungin exhibited the highest...

Zimu Li, Qingyun Liu, Yi Zhang, Yao Yang, Xiaomin Zhou, Wei Peng, Zhigang Liang, Xiaowei Zeng, Qiuxu Wang & Nansha Gao
Driven by the lifestyle habits of modern people, such as excessive smoking, drinking, and chewing betel nut and other cancer-causing foods, the incidence of oral cancer has increased sharply and has a trend of becoming younger. Given the current mainstream treatment means of surgical resection will cause serious damage to many oral organs, so that patients lose the ability to chew, speak, and so on, it is urgent to develop new oral cancer treatment methods....

Rui Zhao, Huaqiang Tao, Yuanyuan Song, Jianbo Guo, Zhi Chen, Caicai Lu, Yi Han, Haibo Li & Yanan Hou
Perchlorate (ClO4-) industrial wastewater requires efficient removal to prevent adverse environmental impacts, however, high concentration and low biodegradability give rise to poor ClO4- bioreduction performance. S2--autotrophic granular sludge (S2--AuGS) was firstly cultivated for high concentration perchlorate (ClO4-) removal in the Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (UASB) reactor (ClO4-: 150 mg·L-1). Simultaneously, the S2- was utilized to control the SO42- generation as electron donor, the effluent SO42- concentration (190 mg·L-1) was satisfied with drinking water standard (250...

Xiaolei Zhou, Yanli Yuan, Hongping Kuang, Bingxiang Tang, Hui Zhang & Manlin Zhang
Lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD) is one of the most common causes of cancer death in men. BUB1B (BUB1 mitotic checkpoint serine/threonine kinase B) has been reported to contribute to the initiation and development of several cancers. Here, we aimed to explore the potential role of BUB1B in LUAD. We found BUB1B was upregulated in LUAD, suggesting its potential role as a biomarker for LUAD diagnosis. Significantly, LUAD patients with high BUB1B expression had a shorter survival...

Xuelin Han, Xueting Su, Zhiqian Li, Yanxi Liu, Shuo Wang, Miao Zhu, Changjian Zhang, Fan Yang, Jingya Zhao, Xianping Li, Fangyan Chen & Li Han
Complement receptor 3 (CD11b/CD18) is an important receptor that mediates adhesion, phagocytosis and chemotaxis in various immunocytes. The conidia of the medically-important pathogenic fungus, Aspergillus fumigatus can be internalized into alveolar epithelial cells to disseminate its infection in immunocompromised host; however, the role of CR3 in this process is poorly understood. In the present study, we investigated the potential role of CR3 on A. fumigatus internalization into type II alveolar epithelial cells and its effect...

METTL21C mediates lysine trimethylation of IGF2BP1 to regulate chicken myoblast proliferation

Shanshan Wang, Jiarong Zhao, Ling Wang, Tao Zhang, Wenxian Zeng & Hongzhao Lu
1. Methyltransferase-like 21C (METTL21C) and insulin-like growth factor 2 mRNA-binding protein 1 (IGF2BP1) play important roles in the proliferation of chicken myoblasts. However, it remains unclear whether there is protein-protein interaction between METTL21C and IGF2BP1 to regulate proliferation of chicken myoblasts. 2. In this study, the Igf2bp1 gene was amplified from cDNA of liver tissue of Lueyang black-bone chicken to construct the overexpression vector HA-Igf2bp1. The HA-Igf2bp1 and Flag-Mettl21c vectors were individually transfected and co-transfected...

In the past three decades, a large body of data on the effects of exposure to ionizing radiation and the ensuing changes in gene expression has been generated. These data have allowed for an understanding of molecular-level events and shown a level of consistency in response despite the vast formats and experimental procedures being used across institutions. However, clarity on how this information may inform strategies for health risk assessment needs to be explored. An...

The demonstration of batch-to-batch consistency is indispensable for quality control of vaccines. We did a randomized, double-blind, parallel-controlled trial to evaluate the immunogenicity consistency of one shot of Ad5-nCoV in healthy adults who had not received any COVID-19 vaccine before. All eligible participants were randomly assigned equally to receive one of three consecutive batches of Ad5-nCoV (5×1010 viral particles/vial, 0.5 mL). The primary endpoint was geometric mean titers (GMTs) of serum SARS-CoV-2 receptor binding domain...

Hui Fu, Jingjing Guo, Yili Ge, Aiping Wu, Wei Li, Huanyao Liu, Guixiang Yuan & Erik Jeppesen
Biological communities exhibit multiple distribution patterns at metacommunity scale and assessing the major drivers of these patterns is a key issue in community ecology. Here we aimed to investigate how the environmental and geographic gradients shape the distribution patterns of macrophytes at metacommunity level. We applied the framework of the elements of metacommunity structure (EMS) to identify the distinct types of 48 macrophyte metacommunities in the Hengduan Mountain Region (HDMR) of China.

You Ge, Ying Zhou, Jing Lu, Tao Qiu, Ling-En Shi, Zhi Zhang, Haiyang Hu, Pingmin Wei & Gengfeng Fu
We aimed to explore the impact of sexual transmission modes on immune reconstitution after combined antiretroviral therapy (cART). We have retrospectively analyzed longitudinal samples from 1557 treated male patients with virological suppression (HIV-1 RNA<50 copies/ml) for at least 2 years. Both heterosexuals (HET) and men who have sex with men (MSM) patients showed an increasing annual trend in CD4+ T cell counts after receiving cART (HET, β: 23.51 (cell/µl)/year, 95% CI: 16.70 to 30.31; MSM,...

Shiping Wei, Ying Huang, Wenyu Huang, Xiaofei Wang & Jianwei Liang
It has proved that the photo-Fenton system modified by polycarboxylic acid is effective against the degradation of organic pollutants. Still, its effect and impact on actual water bodies are not clear. Therefore, this study mainly discussed the effect of actual water elements on the degradation of 2,4-Dichlorophenol in photo-Fenton system modified by Nitrilotriacetic acid (NTA) and its mechanism in pure water. The specific research contents were: the effect of initial concentration of 2,4-Dichlorophenol on its...
