    Abstract ( 24 )   PDF (1061KB) ( 13 )  
    Since 2008, propranolol has become the first-line treatment for infantile hemangiomas. Many researches have been reported on its treatment mechanism both at home and abroad, and several expert consensus or clinical practice guidelines have been formulated and published. In recent years, with the continuous accumulation of clinical experience, increasing number of basic research works, and deepening understanding of the pathogenesis of hemangioma and the mechanism of action of propranolol, it is necessary to update the expert consensus to be more consistent with clinical practice, in order to guide medication and management, provide scientific norms for the clinical use of propranolol in the treatment of infantile hemangiomas. This updated version mainly simplified the process of clinical examination, medication, and monitoring, making it more convenient and operable.

    Study on the mechanism of miR-330-3p in cartilage degeneration in temporomandibular joint osteoarthritis in rats
    WANG Chu-yao, ZOU Lu-xiang, LU Chuan, HE Dong-mei
    2022, 20 (4):  320-327.  doi: 10.19438/j.cjoms.2022.04.002
    Abstract ( 23 )   PDF (1499KB) ( 7 )  
    PURPOSE: To study the mechanism of miR-330-3p in cartilage degeneration in temporomandibular joint osteoarthritis(TMJOA) in rats. METHODS: Human chondrocytes SW1353 was stimulated by inflammation and stress respectively and rat TMJOA model was established through unilateral anterior crossbite(UAC). The expression of miRNA-330-3p in vitro and in vivo was detected by RT-qPCR. The proliferation and metabolism changes of SW1353 were detected by EDU fluorescence staining and immunoblotting after miRNA-330-3p overexpression or inhibition. Furthermore, bioinformatics analysis was performed to predict and screen the downstream targets of miRNA-330-3p. RT-qPCR and immunoblotting were used to clarify the regulation of miRNA-330-3p on the target and the function of target. After intra-articular injection of miRNA-330-3p in TMJOA rats, the changes in cartilage metabolism were detected by immunohistochemistry to clarify the effect of miRNA-330-3p on TMJOA. SPSS 22.0 software package was used to analyze the data. RESULTS: The expression of miRNA-330-3p decreased in chondrocytes under stress or inflammatory stimuli in vitro and in TMJOA rats. Inhibition of miRNA-330-3p decreased chondrocyte proliferation, reduced SOX9 and increased MMP13 expression, while overexpression of miRNA-330-3p had opposite effects. Bioinformatics analysis revealed that CTNNB1 was one of the possible downstream targets, and its expression was elevated after inflammatory/stress stimuli in vitro and in TMJOA rats. SOX9 expression decreased, and MMP13 expression increased after overexpression of CTNNB1, with opposite results for inhibition of CTNNB1. There was a negative relationship between miRNA-330-3p and CTNNB1. Intra-articular injection of miRNA-330-3p in TMJOA rats alleviated cartilage degeneration. CONCLUSIONS: miRNA-330-3p attenuates cartilage degeneration in TMJOA by inhibiting the expression of CTNNB1.

    LI Hui, HUANG Lin-jian, XIE Qian-yang, YANG Chi
    2022, 20 (4):  340-346.  doi: 10.19438/j.cjoms.2022.04.005
    Abstract ( 26 )   PDF (1359KB) ( 2 )  
    PURPOSE: To investigate the changes of rabbit mandibular condyle under mechanical compression in vitro. METHODS: Mandibular condylar explants were cultured in vitro, and subjected to static pressures of 0(control), 15 and 75 kPa for 3 days, respectively. The gross morphology, histology and expression of collagen II(COL2), collagen X (COL10), SOX9 and MMP13 were examined, and micro-CT was performed. Statistical analysis was carried out using SPSS 16.0 software package. RESULTS: In 15 kPa group, the condyle was still intact and white with flat remodeled articular surface. In 75 kPa group, the remodeled articular surface was rough, and flat area was larger than that in 15 kPa group. Condyles became dulling and yellow with cracked cartilage in the center of articular surface. The morphological structure of the condylar cartilage and chondrocytes were more compacted than those in the control group. In the 75 kPa group, the whole layer of cartilage was damaged and detached from the subchondral bone in the central area. The expression of COL2 and SOX9 increased significantly under the pressure of 15 kPa (P<0.01), and decreased significantly at 75 kPa. The expression of COL10 and MMP13 increased significantly under the pressure of 75 kPa(P<0.01). Micro-CT showed a significant increase in bone mineral density(BMD), bone volume/total volume(BV/TV) and trabecular thickness(Tb.Th) in the pressurized groups(P<0.01). CONCLUSIONS: The integrity and function of condylar explants were maintained under the mechanical loading of 15 kPa, and adaptive remodeling was observed. Degenerative changes in cartilage were observed at 75 kPa. The pressure of 75 kPa exceeded the junction bond of cartilage and subchondral bone, and resulted in detachment of cartilage from subchondral bone which may lead to osteoarthritis.

    YOU Yuan-he, TIAN Zhuo-wei, DU Zhong, XIAO Meng, XU Gui-song, ZHENG Jia-wei, WANG Yan-an
    2022, 20 (4):  347-353.  doi: 10.19438/j.cjoms.2022.04.006
    Abstract ( 26 )   PDF (1473KB) ( 3 )  
    PURPOSE: To explore the functional status of YAP under selumetinib treatment, and to assess the efficacy of dual targeting YAP and MEK1/2 in inhibition of NF1-Schwann cells in vitro. METHODS: NF1-Schwann cell model was established by lentivirus transfection. RT-PCR and Western blotting were performed to identify the efficacy of gene knockdown. RT-PCR, Western blotting combined with immunofluorescence were carried out to detect the functional status of YAP. siRNA was adopted to knockdown YAP gene expression. CCK-8 was used to evaluate cell viability of Schwann cells under treatment of different drug combination (YAP inhibitor veteporfin and MEK1/2 inhibitor selumetinib). Colony and sphere formation were used to detect the ability of tumor formation in vitro. Combined index analysis was performed to predict the synergistic effect via Chou-Talalay method. GraphPad Prism 8 software package was used for data analysis. RESULTS: Herein, we established a NF1-neurofibroma Schwann cell model(shNf1-RSC96). Increased nuclear translocation and transcriptional activation of YAP were confirmed under selumetinib intervening. Genetic inhibition of YAP significantly enhanced the cytotoxicity of selumetinib to NF1-Schwann cells in vitro. Additionally, combined treatment with Verteporfin and selumetinib showed a synergistic effect in vitro. CONCLUSIONS: Blocking the nuclear translocation and transcriptional activation of YAP enhances inhibition effect of selumetinib to neurofibroma-Schwann cells. Dual targeting of YAP and MEK1/2 might be a promising therapeutic strategy for treating NF1-neurofibroma.

    2022, 20 (4):  360-365.  doi: 10.19438/j.cjoms.2022.04.008
    Abstract ( 23 )   PDF (1125KB) ( 4 )  
    PURPOSE: To develop an approach based on whole exome sequencing (WES) to explore the correlation between genotype and clinical phenotype of a Chinese familial gigantiform cementoma (FGC) family caused by a mutation in ANO5 gene. METHODS: Nine patients from a Chinese FGC family with facial deformities and lower limb fractures were included. The clinical manifestations, skeletal radiographic features, bone mineral density (BMD), and bone turnover biomarkers were investigated. Peripheral blood from 9 patients and 14 controls within the family was collected, and WES was performed. By using filtering strategy, the candidate genes were sequenced and further validated by PCR and Sanger sequencing in the unaffected individuals within the family and 384 healthy control subjects. RESULTS: The major manifestations of Chinese FGC patients were representative multiquadrant and expansive deformities involving the mandible and maxilla, especially severe in the anterior mandible with diffuse osteopenia bone loss and several fractures in the lower limbs. Sequencing results showed that there was a missense, heterozygous mutation in ANO5 (c.1538C>T, p.Thr513Ile) in all affected individuals, that affected the folding, structure and function of ANO5. CONCLUSIONS: FGC is a rare autosomal dominant hereditary disease caused by ANO5 mutations, with severe facial deformity, long bone fractures and low BMD as main characteristics of Chinese' patients. The first and a novel missense mutation of ANO5 was identified, which extended the phenotypic and genetic spectrum of FGC.

    Abstract ( 24 )   PDF (1232KB) ( 7 )  
    PURPOSE: To examine the expression of nuclear factor erythroid-2 related factor (Nrf2) in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) and investigate the effect of Nrf2 on TPF induced chemotherapy. METHODS: A total of 65 patients with OSCC who received TPF chemotherapy were selected. Nrf2 expression in the biopsy specimens before treatment was examined by immunohistochemistry. The correlations between Nrf2 expression and clinical factors and clinical response to TPF induced chemotherapy were analyzed. SPSS 23.0 software package was used for data analysis. RESULTS: Survival analysis showed that Nrf2 expression was significantly correlated with the prognosis of TPF induced chemotherapy in OSCC patients. Patients with higher Nrf2 expression had better overall survival, disease-free survival, local relapse-free survival and distant metastasis free survival. Univariate and multivariate Cox analysis showed that Nrf2 was an independent prognostic risk factor for TPF chemotherapy in OSCC patients. CONCLUSIONS: The expression of Nrf2 is correlated with the efficacy of TPF induced chemotherapy in OSCC patients. Patients with low Nrf2 have a better prognosis, and Nrf2 can be used as a biomarker to predict the efficacy of TPF induced chemotherapy in OSCC patients

    Abstract ( 18 )   PDF (1457KB) ( 2 )  
    PURPOSE: To analyze the therapeutic methods of odontogenic maxillary sinusitis(OMS) and evaluate its efficiency, and to provide reference for clinical diagnosis and treatment. METHODS: Fifty-three cases of OMS at Shanghai Ninth People's Hospital from January 2011 to December 2020 were reviewed, and the etiology and constituent ratio were summarized. OMS was treated by functional surgery to remove various odontogenic lesions and preserve sinus mucosa and alveolar bone. The preoperative and postoperative maxillary sinusitis were quantitatively evaluated by Lund-Mackay scoring method, and the mean difference of Lund-Mackay before and after operation was compared by paired t test using SPSS 17.0 software package. In addition, the postoperative reactions and complications were evaluated. RESULTS: The common causes of OMS were odontogenic cystic lesions(49.05%), apical inflammation(20.75%), oral maxillary sinus fistula (16.98%) and foreign bodies (13.21%). The Lund-Mackay score was 3.72±0.51 before operation and 0.05±0.32 after operation, which decreased significantly(P<0.001). The postoperative response was small and there was no serious complication. CONCLUSIONS: The treatment of OMS should focus on the elimination of odontogenic lesions. Functional surgery was recommended to protect maxillary sinus mucosa.

    YANG Song, WANG Ning, ZHAO Shu-chao, LI Heng-yong, GE Sheng-you, ZHOU Kai, SONG Kai, SHANG Wei, FENG Yuan-yong
    2022, 20 (4):  390-395.  doi: 10.19438/j.cjoms.2022.04.013
    Abstract ( 26 )   PDF (1157KB) ( 7 )  
    PURPOSE: To explore the expression and clinical significance of chemerin in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM), analyze the relationship with clinicopathological characteristics and prognosis, in order to provide evidence for further postoperative treatment of OSCC patients with T2DM (T2DM-OSCC). METHODS: OSCC specimens combined with type 2 diabetes and without type 2 diabetes (general OSCC) were selected from the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery of the Affiliated Hospital of Qingdao University from January 2009 to December 2014. Chemerin expression levels in tumors and para-cancerous tissues were detected by immunohistochemistry (IHC), SPSS 26.0 software package was used for data analysis. RESULTS: In the T2DM-OSCC patients, chemerin expression was significantly higher in tumor tissues compared with para-cancerous tissues (P<0.05) and chemerin expression was associated with cervical lymph node metastasis, higher TNM stage, lower tumor differentiation, and tumor recurrence (P<0.05). Chemerin expression in tumor tissues of T2DM-OSCC patients was significantly higher than that in ordinary OSCC patients (P<0.05). Log-Rank analysis and Kaplan-Meier analysis showed that the 5-year OS was shorter in the group of high chemerin expression combined with type 2 diabetes than other three groups(P<0.05). Cox model showed that chemerin expression in tumor tissues was an independent prognostic factor (P<0.05) affecting OS of T2DM-OSCC patients. CONCLUSIONS: Chemerin expression was higher in T2DM-OSCC patients than in ordinary OSCC, high expression of chemerin suggests poor prognosis in T2DM-OSCC patients. Chemerin is expected to be a potential indicator and target molecule for judging the prognosis of T2DM-OSCC patients.

    2022, 20 (4):  410-412.  doi: 10.19438/j.cjoms.2022.04.017
    Abstract ( 18 )   PDF (880KB) ( 1 )  
    Thyroglossal duct cyst is a common deformity of the neck, usually occurring in children between 1 and 10 years of age, and also seen in adults. It is mainly caused by the disorder of thyroid hypothyroidism during the fetal period. It can be located at any sites along its descending route. Surgical treatment is the main treatment for this disease. Coagulotting factor V(FV) deficiency is a rare hemorrhagic disorder, and can be divided into inherited and acquired FV deficiency(AFVD). Here, we reported a 45-year-old female patient with a neck mass who was diagnosed with FVD by chance. After surgical resection of the neck mass, the specimens were sent for frozen paraffin pathology and diagnosed as thyroglossal duct cyst.The patient received fresh frozen plasma (FFP) infusion before and after operation,the operation went smoothly and the postoperative recovery was satisfactory.

    Neoadjuvant therapy is systemic therapy before local treatment in patients with non-distant metastatic malignancies, aiming to reduce tumor load and distant metastasis, increase opportunity of radical resection, and relieve symptoms, et al.
