Antiallodynic Effect of Hyperbaric Oxygen on Paclitaxel-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy in a Model of Rat and Its Mechanism

Ting Miao, Xianze Meng, Hong He, Xiaojun Ji
Objective: To investigate the antiallodynic effect of Hyperbaric oxygen treat-ment (HBOT) on paclitaxel (PTX)-induced peripheral neuropathy in a model of rat and the influence on Astrocyte activation-Inflammatory pathway. Method: 45 male Sprague-Dawley rats were equally divided into 3 groups, the Control group (Control), the Model group (PTX), the Therapy group (PTX HBOT). Except for the Control group, all groups were intraperit

Clinical and Molecular Characters of a Yemeni Child with Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome

Saeed Thabet, Abdulgafoor Kassim, Nabil Al-Jomaai, Ramea Alathwary, Saddam Alhalemi
Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome is an x-linked immunodeficiency condition charac-terized by microthrombocytopenia, eczema and recurrent infections. It is caused by mutations in the Wiskott Aldrich Protein (WASP) gene. Hereby we report a 13-month-old Yemeni male infant with mutation in WASP Gene, who presented with congenital microthrombocytopenia, eczema, bleeding tendency and recurrent infections. The variant found in this case creates

Wenhao Zhu, Hanni Zhang, Yunliang Guo, Keli Ge, Yonghong Zhou
Objective: To study the anti-tumor effect and mechanism of parthenolide in gastric cancer cell BGC-823. Methods: The cck8 assay was used to detect the changes of BGC-823 cells viability after treatment with different con-centrations of parthenolide at different time points. The proliferation ability of BGC-823 cells was detected by clone formation assay. And the cell cycle and apoptosis were measured by flow cy

Inhibition of Autophagy Attenuated Cell Damage after OGD/R in SH-SY5Y Cells by Down-Regulating AMPK-Mediated Autophagy Signaling Pathway

Yanxue Zhang, Hongyun Li
Background: Activation of autophagy becomes a new therapeutic target for the treatment of stroke. The aim of this study was to observe the role of autophagy in the model of glucose-oxygen deprivation reoxygenation (OGD/R) in SH-SY5Y cells by interfering with AMPK-mediated autophagy signaling pathway. Methods: The effects of autophagy on OGD/R injury in SH-SY5Y cells were investigated by evalua

The Recto-Vesical Ligament: Myth or Reality?

Raja Briki, Ons Cherif, Mouna Derouich, Salma Chachia, Sassi Boughizane, Hedi Khairi
The recto-vesical ligament is an abnormal peritoneal band that can be associated with uterine malformations by default fusion of Müller’s ducts. It is a very rare entity. We report a case of laparoscopic surgery conducted on a 28-year-old patient in order to explore primary subfertility. We discover that the patient had two permeable vaginas, two distinct cervices and two com-pletely separate hemiuterus with two

Chylothorax is a rare cause of pleural effusion, which can be divided into traumatic and non-traumatic causes. Often, the cause of a non-traumatic chylothorax is challenging. We report a young gentleman with idiopathic chylothorax who was diagnosed in a rural hospital with limited resources. This was confirmed on clinical presentation, pleural fluid analysis, CECT imaging and a diagnostic lymp
