Background: This study aimed to investigate the association between the exposure to secondhand smoke (SHS) and dysglycemia. Methods: This cross-sectional study included a total of 4,417 adults (1,103 with SHS exposure, 3,314 without it) aged 19 years old or older, using data from the 7th Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. Exposure to SHS at home and/or at workplace and/or public space was assessed by a self-reported questionnaire and corroborated by urine cotinine levels. In addition, the SHS group subjects were subdivided into five groups according to the urine cotinine level. The associations between SHS and dysglycemia (fasting blood glucose ≥100 mg/dL or HbA1c ≥5.7%) were examined using logistic regression analyses. Results: After adjusting for covariates, the SHS group showed higher odds ratio for dysglycemia than the non-exposed SHS group, although the relationship was not significant (odds ratio, 1.176; 95% confidence interval, 0.985-1.405; P=0.074). The SHS group showed a higher fasting plasma glucose level in men than the non-exposed group (odds ratio, 1.274; 95% confidence interval, 1.014-1.600; P=0.038). In addition, the risk of dysglycemia was high in subgroups of higher urine cotinine concentration in the SHS group. Conclusion: Dysglycemia is correlated with the degree of exposure to secondhand smoke.

Efficacy and safety of acupuncture for functional constipation: a randomised, sham-controlled pilot trial

Hye-Yoon Lee, Oh-Jin Kwon, Jung-Eun Kim, Mikyeong Kim, Ae-Ran Kim, Hyo-Ju Park, Jung-Hyo Cho, Joo-Hee Kim, Sun-Mi Choi
2018 BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine  
The prevalence of functional constipation (FC) is 3-27%, and FC has been reported to cause discomfort in daily life and various complications. The treatment for FC depends on laxatives, and thus, effective and non-toxic alternative treatments are needed. Methods: We conducted a randomised, sham-controlled parallel-design, pilot trial. Participants with FC were randomly assigned to either the real acupuncture (RA) or sham acupuncture (SA) group. The RA consisted of eight fixed acupuncture points

SA consisted of shallow acupuncture insertion at 12 non-acupuncture points. Twelve sessions were provided over 4 weeks. The outcome measures were weekly defecation frequency (DF), spontaneous complete bowel movement (SCBM), Bristol stool scale (BSS) score and constipation assessment scale (CAS) score. The participants were followed for 4 weeks after the treatment. Results: Thirty participants were enrolled (15:15). The mean DF were 5.86 ± 5.62, 5.43 ± 3.39 and 5.79 ± 3.64 in the RA group and 3.73 ± 1.62, 5.00 ± 1.77 and 5.40 ± 1.96 in the SA group at weeks 1, 5, and 9, respectively. The increases in weekly SCBMs were 2.50 ± 3.86 and 2.71 ± 4.01 with RA and 2.33 ± 2.74 and 1.93 ± 2.25 with SA at weeks 5 and 9, respectively (mean difference [MD] 0.78). The BSS scores were 0.57 ± 1.72 and 1.09 ± 1.30 with RA and 0.15 ± 1.06 and 0.14 ± 0.88 with SA at weeks 5 and 9, respectively (MD 0.95). The CAS score changes were − 3.21 ± 2.91 and − 3.50 ± 3.98 with RA and − 2.67 + ±2.82 and − 2.87 ± 2.95 with SA at weeks 5 and 9, respectively. Greater improvements were observed in subgroup analysis of participants with hard stool. The numbers of participants who developed adverse events (AEs) were equal in both groups (four in each group), and the AEs were not directly related to the intervention. Conclusions: This clinical trial shows feasibility with minor modifications to the primary outcome measure and comparator. Acupuncture showed clinically meaningful improvements in terms of SCBMs occurring more than 3 times per week and in these improvements being maintained for 4 weeks after treatment completion. As this is a pilot trial, future studies are warranted to confirm the efficacy and safety.

Perioperative sedative use is not associated with acute kidney injury after total hip or knee arthroplasty

Tak Kyu Oh, Jin-Woo Park, Hyun-Jung Shin, Hyo-Seok Na, Ah-Young Oh, Jung-Won Hwang
2019 Annals of Translational Medicine  
The use of sedatives (propofol or dexmedetomidine) is common in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) or total hip arthroplasty (THA) under spinal anesthesia. Although propofol and dexmedetomidine have been reported to decrease the risk of acute kidney injury (AKI) after cardiac surgery, their effects on AKI incidence after TKA or THA are still unknown. The purpose of this study was to investigate the associations between sedative dosage (propofol and dexmedetomidine) and AKI incidence after TKA or THA

This retrospective observational study analyzed medical records of adult patients aged 18 years or older who underwent unilateral TKA or THA under spinal anesthesia at a single tertiary care hospital between January 2007 and June 2018. Data were analyzed using univariable and multivariable logistic regression analyses. A total of 5,663 patients were included in the analysis (TKA: 3,570, 63.0%; THA: 2,093, 37.0%), and 147 patients (2.6%) developed AKI in postoperative days 0-3. Multivariable logistic regression analysis showed that propofol dosage (odds ratio: 0.99, 95% confidence interval: 0.94, 1.05; P=0.839) and dexmedetomidine dosage (odds ratio: 0.95, 95% confidence interval: 0.84, 1.09; P=0.461) were not significantly associated with AKI incidence. This study demonstrated no significant association between sedative uses (propofol, dexmedetomidine) and AKI incidence after THA or TKA under spinal anesthesia, and use of such sedatives does not require extreme caution.

Golden Gate Cloning-Compatible DNA Replicon/2A-Mediated Polycistronic Vectors for Plants

Jae Hoon Lee, Hyo Jun Won, Eun-Seok Oh, Man-Ho Oh, Je Hyeong Jung
2020 Frontiers in Plant Science  
The expression of multiple proteins and high-throughput vector assembly system are highly relevant in the field of plant genetic engineering and synthetic biology. Deployment of the self-cleaving 2A peptide that mediates polycistronic gene expression has been an effective strategy for multigene expression, as it minimizes issues in coordinated transgene regulation and trait staking in plants. However, efficient vector assembly systems optimized for 2A peptide-mediated polycistronic expression

In this article, we present Golden Gate cloning-compatible modular systems allowing rapid and flexible construction of polycistronic expression vectors applicable for plants. The genetic modules comprised 2A peptides (T2A and P2A)-linked tricistron expression cassette and its acceptor backbones, named pGO-DV1 and pGO-DV2. While both acceptor backbones were binary T-DNA vectors, pGO-DV2 was specially designed to function as a DNA replicon enhancing gene expression levels. Using the Golden Gate cloning, a set of six tricistronic vectors was constructed, whereby three transgenes encoding fluorescent proteins (mCherry, eYFP, and eGFP) were combinatorially placed along the expression cassette in each of the binary vectors. Transient expression of the construct in tobacco leaves revealed that the expression levels of three fluorescent proteins were comparable each other regardless of the gene positions in the tricistronic expression cassette. pGO-DV2-based constructs were able to increase protein expression level by up to 71%, as compared to pGO-DV1-based constructs.

So-Young Park, In Young Oh, Jung-Hyun Kim, Hyo-Jung Kim, Bomi Seo, Oh Young Kwon, Woo-Jung Song, Hyouk-Soo Kwon, You Sook Cho, Hee-Bom Moon, Tae-Bum Kim
2020 Journal of Korean medical science  
Stevens-Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis (SJS/TEN) are the most severe cutaneous drug hypersensitivity reactions, which are unpredictable adverse drug reactions. SJS/TEN is associated with significant mortality and morbidity; however, effective treatment is difficult. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are well-known for their anti-inflammatory and tissue regeneration properties. The purpose of the present study was to verify whether MSCs could be applied for the treatment of SJS/TEN.
more » ... We developed an SJS/TEN mouse model using peripheral blood mononuclear cells from a lamotrigine-induced SJS patient. MSCs were injected into the model to verify the treatment effect. In SJS model mice treated with MSCs, ocular damage rarely occurred, and apoptosis rate was significantly lower. We demonstrated a therapeutic effect of MSCs on SJS/TEN, with these cells presenting a potential novel therapy for the management of this disorder.

Surprisingly, there was almost no indication that the commercial sponsor damaged positive responses, but there was some indication that under the localized condition, there was more negativity toward the commercial sponsorship. The ELM and attribution theory provide theoretical space for understanding these effects.
