Authors: Leng P, Li D, Sun Y, Wang Y, Zhang H Abstract The aim of the study is to screen the effective shRNA sequence which can silence the human COX-2 expression level in synovial cells of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patient transfected by the lentivirus. Four pairs of hCOX-2 shRNA were designed and inserted into lentivirus to form pGPHI/GFP/Neo-shRNA vector. The reconstructed virus was transfected into synovial cells derived from RA patients, and then the expression level of hCOX-2 mRNA and the protein of the inflammatory factors including prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), interleu...

I think it is entirely appropriate to greet the advent of senolytics with enthusiasm. These treatments are the first legitimate rejuvenation therapies to successfully target one of the root causes of aging, the accumulation of lingering senescent cells in old tissues. The first human trial data is approaching publication, but even before it arrives, the evidence to date strongly suggests that meaningful levels of rejuvenation can be achieved in old people at a very low cost. The first senolytic drugs (such as dasatinib and navitoclax) and plant extracts (such as fisetin and piperlongumine) cost very little, and remove only...

AbstractTo evaluate the association between sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) among a national sample cohort from Korea. Data were collected from 2002 through 2013 for individuals aged ≥ 20 years in the Korean National Health Insurance Service (NHIS)-National Sample Cohort. We extracted the data from RA patients (n = 7619) and 1:4-matched controls (n = 30,476) and analyzed the occurrence of SSNHL. Matching was performed based on age, sex, income, region of residence, and medical history. RA was diagnosed based on International Classification o...
