Background and purpose: To describe a patient with urticarial lesions which was successfully treated with mindfulness and nutraceuticals.Material and methods: Literature review and case report.Case report: A 20-year-old female patient with an unmarked past medical history presented with diffuse pruritic urticarial lesions associated with breathless and severe fatigue, lasting for 5 months. The lesions covered all body, except palms and plants. Hospitalized for three days, she received dexamethasone, promethazine, and subcutaneous adrenalin and discharged with fexofenadine, prednisone, and ranitidine. Mindfulness and relaxation practice were instructed and some nutraceuticals. After two months, she returned asymptomatic, without any new episodes of urticaria or fatigue. Conclusion: Most of the chronic urticaria patients are treated with antihistamines and/or steroids. This case illustrates an alternative holistic approach, combining mindfulness and relaxation practices with nutraceuticals. This alternative therapeutical strategy should be explored by back to back comparison to the conventional pharmaceutical approach.

The exploration of fracture internal fixation materials has been one of the research hotspots in the field of biomedical materials. The traditional internal fixation material for fracture is metal fixation. Although its mechanical strength is very large, it can not be degraded and absorbed in human body after implantation of human body or canine joint, which requires secondary operation to remove, which not only brings pain to patients, but also causes economic pay. [1] Therefore, the development of a biodegradable fracture internal fixation material has become the goal of many researchers. Polylactic acid (PLA) is nontoxic and harmless, has good biocompatibility and strong mechanical properties. It can be degraded in vivo after implantation. The degradation products are CO2 and H2O.[2]For the study of the feasibility of polylactic acid as a substitute for common fracture fixation materials ,18 northern Chinese pastoral dogs were randomly divided into blank group, PLA group and plate group. The data were recorded according to the Wakitani score from the first week to the fifteenth week after operation. First, all the indexes were divided into two categories by principal component analysis [3], then the blank group, steel plate group and PLA group were fitted and compared. Finally, it is concluded that PLA is more beneficial to joint repair than steel plate.

【Abstract】Background: Missed diagnosis rate of spiral tibia shaft fracture with posterior malleolus crack fracture (PMCF) is high in the clinical. However, the mechanism and related factors of fracture are still unclear. Moreover, PMCF has been observed in other types of tibial shaft fractures. Objective: To explore the correlative factors of tibial shaft fracture with ipsilateral PMCF, decrease the rate of clinical missed diagnosis, strengthen the effective fixation of PMCF, and reduce the incidence of traumatic arthritis. Methods: From September 2014 to May 2019, we collected 137 tibiofibular fracture. Only 68 cases involved in ankle joint CT examination and were retrospectively analyzed. The patients were divided into posterior malleolus group (30 cases) and non-posterior malleolus group (38 cases) according to whether come up PMCF or not. The posterior malleolus group contained 24 males and 6 females, 27-77 (47.57±11.79) years old, the non-posterior malleolus group contained 23 males and 15 females, 18-85 (48.71±13.84) years old. The gender, age, location, fibula fracture and tibial shaft fracture classification were observed for univariate and multivariate analysis. Results: The probability of PMCF was higher with right tibial shaft fracture (OR=3.69 95%CI:1.13-12.08 P

Enzyme engineering is an important part of modern biotechnology. Due to its high reaction specificity, high efficiency, mild reaction conditions, and low pollution, it is also an important method widely used in the pharmaceutical field. The application of enzymes in medicine is diverse, such as: diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases with enzymes, manufacture of various drugs with enzymes, etc., mainly through manual operations, to obtain enzymes required by the pharmaceutical industry, and through various means Enzymes perform their catalytic functions. This article mainly introduces the application of enzyme engineering in the pharmaceutical field, and also prospects the development trend of enzyme engineering in the pharmaceutical field.

Objective: To explore the non-placement of "T" tube" after laparoscopic choledochotomy. feasibility and complication analysis of primary suture bile duct. Methods: Retrospective analysis of January 2013~ December 2016, Laparoscopic choledocholithotomy for primary bile duct suture in 87 cases, Combined with literature, the indications, methods and complications of the operation were summarized and analyzed. Results: There was no operative death in the whole group, Postoperative complications occurred in 5 cases (5.7%), 1 case with jaundice, gradually subsided after 4 days of conservative treatment. Two cases had postoperative bile leakage, to prolong the drainage time of the peritoneal drainage tube and stop by itself. In 1 case, bile duct stenosis occurred. 1 case of residual common bile duct stones. The average postoperative hospitalization was 9 days. Conclusion: Select the right case strictly, Patient and delicate operation, Laparoscopic choledochotomy is safe and feasible.

Objective: To study the effect of training under high temperature on blood and heat shock protein 72(HSP72)expression of flying saucer athletes. Methods: The numbers of training group and control group are 30. Twenty-four flying saucer athletes in Zhejiang province were selected and randomly divided into training group and control group, 15 in each group. Peripheral venous blood of each group was taken before and after the experiment. The HSP72 content of lymphocyte, blood routine and biochemical indexes were measured respectively. Results: There was significant difference in white blood cell in training group count before and after the experiment(P< 0.05). The expression of HSP72 and the white blood cell in training group was higher than that control group(P< 0.05). Conclusions: Organism could be affected and turned to stress state due to training under high temperature. It is necessary to provide the safeguard for the flying saucer athletes under high temperature in order to prevent the damage.

Objective: To study the expression of CDC20、TOP2A in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma and its relationship with survival of esophageal carcinoma.Methods :65 patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma from January 2016 to June 2018 were selected by computer random selection. All patients were treated with radical operation. The CDC20、TOP2A expression of the patients was examined. At the same time, the relationship between 3-year survival rate and CDC20、TOP2A was analyzed by follow-up investigation.Results: the CDC20、TOP2A expression level of cancer tissue group was higher than that of adjacent tissue group and normal tissue group (P 0.05; there were differences between groups (P P >0.05) and positive proportion in TNM stage, lymphatic metastasis, invasion factor and CDC20、TOP2A expression level; there were differences in tumor differentiation ,5-year survival rate and CDC20、TOP2A expression level (P P >0.05), and showed inverse proportion relationship.Conclusion: metastasis, recurrence and prognosis of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma are related to the level of CDC20、TOP2A expression. These two indexes can effectively evaluate the pathological situation of esophageal cancer and provide an important reference for the prognosis of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma patients.
