Patients with depression have a high prevalence of developing dyslipidemia. In this study, we aim to investigate the difference of serum lipids, including total cholesterol (TCH), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), and triglycerides (TG), between the depressed patients and healthy controls. Sex differences in lipids and their psychological correlations were also included. The study included 56 healthy controls (males/females = 26/30) and 110 first-diagnosed drug-naïve outpatients (males/females = 35/75). A total of...

Special electromagnetic field-treated water and far-infrared radiation alleviates lipopolysaccharide-induced acute respiratory distress syndrome in rats by regulating haptoglobin

Changyong Luo, Yan Li, Xu Liang, Yifan Chen, Qiao Zou, Yurong Kong, Zhengguang Guo, Wei Sun & Xin Wang
Special electromagnetic field-treated water (SEW) and far-infrared radiation (FIR) can reduce acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) in rats inflicted by lipopolysaccharides (LPSs). However, little is known about its underlying molecular mechanism. Differentially expressed proteins (DEPs) of SEW and FIR interventions were obtained from a proteomics database. A total of 89 DEPs were identified. Enrichment analysis of DEPs was performed using the Database for Annotation, Visualization, and Integrated Discovery. These DEPs were associated with the responses...

Junyan Wang, Xing Wang, Xiaona Liu, Qingbin Guo, Weimeng Kong & Di Liu
The coupling reactions of amines into imines oxidized by persulfate with the assistance of ultrasound were carried out. The reaction conditions were optimized and the effect of ultrasonic was also investigated. The results indicated that Na2S2O8 in combination with ultrasound possessed excellent oxidative performance, which made this transformation smoothly proceed under the conditions of solvent-/catalyst- free, and low reaction temperature, giving excellent yields of imines in short reaction time. Our procedure had high reaction tolerance...

Prognostic alternative splicing regulatory network of RBM25 in hepatocellular carcinoma

Yong-Fa Zhang, Yi-Xiu Wang, Ning- Zhang, Zhen-Hai Lin, Long-Rong Wang, Yun Feng, Qi Pan & Lu Wang
RNA-binding motif protein 25 (RBM25) is a poorly characterized RNA-binding protein that is involved in several biological processes and regulates the proliferation and metastasis of tumor cells. The regulatory role of RBM25 in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is unknown. Here, RBM25 expression and outcomes in HCC patients were evaluated using The Cancer Genome Atlas database. RBM25 was overexpressed in HCC patients compared with the healthy group. The high expression of RBM25 in tumor tissues was significantly...

Congcong Li, Chaoxi Chen, Yucai Wei, Min Tan, Shuo Zhai, Juebo Zhao, Lu Wang & Tao Dai
It is urgently needed to develop novel adjuvants for improving the safety and efficacy of vaccines. Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), with high surface area, play an important role in drug delivery. With perfect biocompatibility and green preparation process, the γ-cyclodextrin metal-organic framework (γ-CD-MOF) fabricated with cyclodextrin and potassium suitable for antigen delivery. In this study, we modified γ-CD-MOF with span-85 to fabricate the SP-γ-CD-MOF as animal vaccine adjuvants. The ovalbumin (OVA) as the model antigen was...

Long noncoding RNA#45 exerts broad inhibitory effect on influenza a virus replication via its stem ring arms

Lei Zhang, Xinxin Zheng, Jun Li, Guoqing Wang, Zenglei Hu, Yu Chen, Xiaoquan Wang, Min Gu, Ruyi Gao, Shunlin Hu, Xiaowen Liu, Xinan Jiao, Daxin Peng, Jiao Hu & Xiufan Liu
A growing body of evidence suggests the pivotal role of long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) in influenza virus infection. Based on next-generation sequencing, we previously demonstrated that Lnc45 was distinctively stimulated by H5N1 influenza virus in mice. In this study, we systematically investigated the specific role of Lnc45 during influenza A virus (IAV) infection. Through qRT-PCR, we first demonstrated that Lnc45 is highly up-regulated by different subtypes of IAV strains, including H5N1, H7N9, and H1N1 viruses....

Ensemble and calibration multiply robust estimation for quantile treatment effect

Xiaohong He & Lei Wang
Quantile treatment effects can be important causal estimands in the evaluation of biomedical treatments or interventions for health outcomes such as birthweight and medical cost. However, the existing estimators require either a propensity score model or a conditional density vector model is correctly specified, which is difficult to verify in practice. In this paper, we allow multiple models for propensity score and conditional density vector, then construct a class of calibration estimators based on multiple...

A novel immune-related long non-coding RNA signature improves the prognosis prediction in the context of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma

Lin Chen, Zhimou Cai, Kexing Lyu, Zhiwei Cai & Wenbin Lei
The tumor immune microenvironment plays an important role in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). Reliable prognostic signatures able to accurately predict the immune landscape and survival rate of HNSCC patients are crucial to ensure an individualized/effective treatment. Here, we used HNSCC transcriptomic and clinical data retrieved from The Cancer Genome Atlas and identified differentially expressed immune-related long non-coding RNAs (DEirlncRNAs). DEirlncRNA pairs were recognized using univariate analysis. Cox and Lasso regression analyses were...

Yan Chen, Da Lin, Changxuan Shi, Liang Guo, Linhua Liu, Lin Chen, Ting Li, Ying Liu, Chengchao Zheng, Xintong Chi, Chun Meng & Yaoming Xue
Insulin resistance (IR) is a complex pathological condition resulting from the dysregulation of cellular response to insulin hormone in insulin-dependent cells and is recognized as a pathogenic hallmark and strong risk factor for metabolic syndrome. The present study aims to elucidate the molecular mechanism of the pathogenesis of IR. Here, we used human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) to establish the IR cell model induced by 1 × 10−6 mmol/L insulin. After 48 h, reactive...

Improved kth power expectile regression with nonignorable dropouts

Dongyu Li & Lei Wang
The kth (1<k≤ 2) power expectile regression (ER) can balance robustness and effectiveness between the ordinary quantile regression and ER simultaneously. Motivated by a longitudinal ACTG 193A data with nonignorable dropouts, we propose a two-stage estimation procedure and statistical inference methods based on the kth power ER and empirical likelihood to accommodate both the within-subject correlations and nonignorable dropouts. Firstly, we construct the bias-corrected generalized estimating equations by combining the kth power ER and inverse...
