Exogenous hydrogen sulfide ameliorates high glucose-induced myocardial injury & inflammation via the CIRP-MAPK signaling pathway in H9c2 cardiac cells

In this study, we hypothesize that exogenous H2S may protect cardiac cells against high glucose (HG)-induced myocardial injury and inflammation with the involvement of the CIRP-MAPK signaling pathway.Main methodsH9c2 cardiac cells cultured under HG conditions were transfected with siRNA and different inhibitors for detecting the effects of sodium hydrogen sulfide (NaHS) (a H2S donor) on cell biological processes. The cardiac cell viability and LDH activity were determined by CCK-8 and LDH kit. ELISA was employed to measure the levels of inflammatory factors, while 2′,7′-dichlorofluorescein diacetate (DCFH-DA) to evaluate reactive oxygen species (ROS). Mitochondrial membrane potential (MMP) was identified by rhodamine 123 staining. TUNEL staining and Hoechst 33258 staining were employed to observe cardiac cell apoptosis. Besides, we determined the expression of CIRP-MAPK signaling pathway- and apoptosis-related factors by protein immunoblot analysis.Key findingsHG culturing induced toxicity, LDH, higher level of inflammatory factors, ROS, MMP, and apoptosis in cardiac cells, attenuated the viability of cardiac cells, and activated the CIRP-MAPK signaling pathway. Notably, CIRP silencing aggravated the above condition. H2S or blockade of the MAPK signaling pathway reversed the above conditions induced by HG.SignificanceThe present study provides evidence for the protective effect of exogenous H2S on HG-induced myocardial injury and inflammation in H9c2 cardiac cells...

This study aimed at determining the performance of health information management departments (HIMD) to identify the policies of these hospitals, their similarities, and differences in their procedures in this respect. Managers of the departments and information disclosure and medical record staff in 22 teaching hospitals were invited to complete a questionnaire regarding their practices in four axes including confidentiality principles, principles of disclosure consent, disclosure information to external and internal users. We found that there are no specific national framework and guidelines for the disclosure of health i...

Authors: Zechmeister M, Endel F Abstract In Austria, there is no single source of truth holding information about all physicians and their medical practice. Therefore, different sources have to be combined to accumulate detailed information about doctors, identify data errors and increase overall data quality. The aim of this project is to link two datasets from vastly different origins utilizing reproduceable and mostly automatic procedures in contrast to manually acquired links in the past. As there is no global identifier, names and addresses of the doctors were used instead. Because of different spellings and t...

In this study we explore machine learning approaches to infection severity recognition on driveline exit site images. We apply a U-net convolutional neural network (CNN) for driveline tube segmentation, resulting in a Dice score coefficient of 0.95. A classification CNN is trained to predict the membership of one out of three infection classes in photographs. The resulting accuracy of 67% in total is close to the measured expert level performance, which indicates that also for human experts there may not be enough information present in the photographs for accurate assessment. We suggest the inclusion of thermographic imag...

Health care professionals can easily lose their sight on the important insights of the patients' clinical and medical history. Although machine learning algorithms have already proved their significance in healthcare research, remains a challenge translation and dissemination of fully automated prediction algorithms from research to decision support at the point of care. In this paper, we address the effect of changes in th...
