    Abstract: INTRODUCTION: Maintenance of normal weight and higher levels of physical activity are associated with a reduced risk of several types of cancer. As genomic instability is regarded as a hallmark of cancer development, one proposed mechanism is improvement of DNA repair function. We investigated links between dietary weight loss, exercise, and strand break rejoining in an ancillary study to a randomized-controlled trial. METHODS: Overweight/obese postmenopausal women (n=439) were randomized to: a) reduced-calorie weight-loss diet ("diet" n=118); b) moderate-to-vigorous intensity aerobic exercise ("exercise" n=117); c) a combination ("diet+exercise" n=117); or d) control (n=87). The reduced-calorie diet had a 10% weight-loss goal. The exercise intervention consisted of 45 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous aerobic activity 5 days/week for 12 months. DNA repair capacity was measured in a subset of 226 women at baseline and 12 months, from cryopreserved peripheral mononuclear cells using the Comet assay. Anthropometric and body composition measures were performed at baseline and 12 months. RESULTS: DNA repair capacity did not change significantly with any of the 12 month interventions compared to control; there were also no significant changes when stratified by changes in body composition or aerobic fitness (VO2max). At baseline, DNA repair capacity was positively associated with weight, BMI, and fat mass (r=0.20, p=0.003; r=0.19, p=0.004; r=0.13, p=0.04, respectively) and inversely with lean body mass (r=-0.14, p=0.04). CONCLUSION: In conclusion, DNA repair capacity did not change with dietary weight loss or exercise interventions in postmenopausal women within a period of 12 months. Other assays that capture different facets of DNA repair function may be needed.

    Description: Objective: Ischemic heart disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. The complement system plays a major role in inflammation and tissue injury following myocardial ischemia and reperfusion (MI/R) injury. Systemic C5 inhibition in clinical studies has resulted in mixed results and the role of earlier complement components (e.g., C3a), upstream from C5 cleavage, has not been elucidated for MI/R injury. Therefore, we evaluated the role of C5 or C3a in a mouse model of MI/R injury.Methods: We performed experimental MI/R with 30 min of ischemia and 4 hr of reperfusion in 8-12 wk old C57BL/6 (WT) mice. Systemic C5 or C3a inhibition was performed with an anti-C5 monoclonal antibody (BB5.1) 30 min prior to reperfusion or with a C3a receptor antagonist (C3aRA). Since the C3aRA induces neutropenia that resolves within 120 min, we administered C3aRA at two different time points in two separate groups: 30 min prior to reperfusion within the neutropenic time frame and 120 min prior to reperfusion, when the neutropenia had resolved, but C3aRA remained active. Following MI/R, cardiac function was assessed via echocardiography, serum troponin I concentrations were measured as an index of myocardial cell death and myocardial inflammation was determined via myocardial polymorphonuclear leukocyte (PMN) infiltration.Results: In wild type mice, MI/R significantly decrease myocardial ejection fraction and increased serum troponin I levels and myocardial PMN infiltration compared to sham-operated animals. Systemic C5 inhibition, 30 min prior to reperfusion, significantly protected mice from MI/R injury, confirming an important role for C5 in murine MI/R injury.Treatment with the C3aRA, 30 min prior to reperfusion (i.e., within the neutropenic time frame), protected mice significantly from MI/R related injury. In contrast, administration of the C3aRA 120 min prior to reperfusion, when the neutropenia had resolved, but C3aRA remained active, did not prevent MI/R injury.Conclusions: These results confirm an important role for C5 cleavage in murine MI/R injury. At the same time, they suggest a minimal role for C3a, since neutropenia rather than C3a receptor antagonism appears to be responsible for C3aRA related amelioration in MI/R injury. While C5 inhibition in the clinical setting of MI/R does not appear to be therapeutic, our results raise the possibility that inhibition of either C5a or C5b-9 may be more advantageous than inhibition of C3a or complete inhibition of C5 in humans.
    Description: Einleitung: Die koronare Herzerkrankung ist weltweit die führende Todesursache. Das Komplementsystem spielt eine wichtige Rolle bei der Entzündungsreaktion und dem Gewebeschaden nach myokardialer Ischämie und Reperfusion (MI/R). Die Inhibition des Komplementfaktors C5 hatte in klinischen Studien unterschiedliche Ergebnisse gezeigt, und die Rolle von Komplementfaktoren, die oberhalb der C5-Spaltung in der Komplementkaskade liegen (z.B. C3a), wurde für MI/R nicht erforscht. Daher untersuchten wir die Rolle von C5 und C3a in einem MI/R-Mausmodell.Methoden: Wir führten in 12 Wochen alten C57BL/6 (WT)-Mäusen experimentell MI/R mit 30 min Ischämie und 4 h Reperfusion durch. Systemische Inhibition der Komplementfaktoren C5 oder C3a wurde mittels eines anti-C5 monoklonalen Antikörpers (BB5.1) 30 min vor der Reperfusion oder mit einem C3a-Rezeptorantagonist (C3aRA) durchgeführt. Da der C3aRA eine Neutropenie induziert, die innerhalb von 〈TextGroup〉 120 min 〈/TextGroup〉 abgeklungen ist, verabreichten wir den C3aRA in zwei unterschiedlichen Versuchsgruppen zu zwei Zeitpunkten: 30 min vor der Reperfusion, innerhalb der Neutropenie, und 120 min vor der Reperfusion, wenn die Neutropenie abgeklungen war, aber der C3aRA noch aktiv war. Nach MI/R untersuchten wir die kardiale Funktion mittels Echokardiographie, bestimmten die Serumkonzentration von Troponin I als Zeichen myokardialen Zelluntergangs und die myokardiale Infiltration mit Polymorphonukleären Zellen (PMN) als Maß myokardialer Inflammation. Ergebnisse: WT-Mäuse hatten nach MI/R im Vergleich zu sham-operierten Mäusen signifikant reduzierte Ejektionsfraktionen, während Troponin I und die myokardiale PMN-Infiltration signifikant erhöht waren. Systemische C5-Inhibierung 30 min vor der Reperfusion schützte Mäuse signifikant vor MI/R-Schädigung und bestätigt damit eine wichtige Rolle von C5 in MI/R im Mausmodell. Eine Behandlung mit dem C3aRA 30 min vor der Reperfusion, während der neutropenischen Phase, schützte die Mäuse signifikant vor MI/R-Schädigung. Eine Verabreichung des C3aRA 120 min vor der Reperfusion, wenn die Neutropenie abgeklungen war, aber der C3aRA noch aktiv war, verhinderte allerdings keine MI/R-Schädigung.Fazit: Diese Ergebnisse bestätigen eine wichtige Rolle für C5 bei MI/R im Mausmodell. Die durch den C3aRA verursachte Neutropenie, und nicht der C3a-Rezeptorantagonismus, scheint für die Abschwächung des MI/R-Schadens verantwortlich zu sein. Damit scheint C3a bei MI/R im Mausmodell nur eine untergeordnete Rolle zu spielen. Da die Inhibition des Komplementfaktors C5 in klinischen Studien nicht erfolgreich war, sprechen unsere Ergebnisse dafür, dass die Inhibition von C5a oder C5b-9 in klinischen Studien erfolgversprechender sein könnte als die Inhibition von C3a oder eine komplette Inhibition von C5.

    Description: Entscheidend für die Prognose der traumatischen N. facialis-Läsion sind der Zeitpunkt des Auftretens nach der Schussverletzung, die Kenntnis über Schwere der Schädigung, die Beherrschung der operativen Erstversorgung sowie eine optimale Langzeittherapie.Das Geschoss zerschmetterte das Mastoid der 23-jährigen Patientin, zerstörte den N.facialis im mastoidalen Segment, passierte die A. carotis interna und Wirbelsäule und kam im Oropharynx zu liegen. Innerhalb von 24 Stunden erfolgte die Geschoss-Bergung transoral. Über eine Mastoidektomie fanden wir eine komplette Ruptur des N. facialis. Es folgte eine primäre Nervenrekonstruktion mit einem N. auricularis magnus-Transplantat. Bereits nach 4 Tagen begann die Patientin mit der Physiotherapie. Hierunter verbesserte sich der House-Brackmann-Index von 5-6 auf 4, der Stennert-Parese-Index von 10-9 auf 6 innerhalb von 8 Monaten.

    Abstract: In binding competition assays using a protein kinase C preparation from mouse brain (particulate fraction) 3H-labelled 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA), for a series of new diterpene esters (DTE) the relative binding affinity [rba = Kia(TPA)/Kia(DTE)] in relation to TPA was determined. A wide range of values was noticed, some of the DTE binding more strongly than TPA (rba greater than 1), others binding less strongly than TPA (rba less than 1) In comparative terms, competition for specific binding sites appears to correlate better with irritant than with promoting activity of the DTE. Using mouse peritoneal neutrophils, binding of [3H]-TPA was determined by a modification of the "cold-acetone filter assay"; saturation of high-affinity sites (Kda = 0.2 nM) was obtained at concentrations less than or equal to 1 nM, but there was also evidence for specific binding at "low-affinity" sites (Kda = 26 nM). Induction of chemoluminescence in the presence of luminol in mouse peritoneal neutrophils with a set of DTE usually elecited two peaks; at concentrations greater than or equal to 10 nM DTE a short-lived, "spike-like" response lasting only from 0 to about 5 min (phase A) its followed by a "plateau" response from about 5-120 min (phase B). This latter phase of chemoluminescence stimulation with luminol correlated well with the irritant potential of the DTE used. The sequence of the two phases can be inverted partially by using first TPA at 2,5 nM followed by a quick concentration increase to 100 nM; this indicates two different concentration-dependent events. As regards the intensity of the chemoluminescent response, quantitative but not qualitative differences between DTE were observed, which show some correlation with strong and weak tumour-promoting activity. Inhibition studies suggest the involvement of the myeloperoxidase/H2O2/Cl- system in the luminogenic response; it is suggested that the release of hypochlorite or a closely related oxidant may be instrumental in tumour promotion.

    Abstract: We have previously reported an increased expression of cytokeratins 8/18 (K8/K18) in cells expressing the F508del mutation of cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR). This is associated with increased colocalization of CFTR and K18 in the vicinity of the endoplasmic reticulum, although this is reversed by treating cells with curcumin, resulting in the rescue of F508del-CFTR. In the present work, we hypothesized that (i) the K8/K18 network may interact physically with CFTR, and that (ii) this interaction may modify CFTR function. CFTR was immunoprecipitated from HeLa cells transfected with either wild-type (WT) CFTR or F508del-CFTR. Precipitates were subjected to 2D-gel electrophoresis and differential spots identified by mass spectrometry. K8 and K18 were found significantly increased in F508del-CFTR precipitates. Using surface plasmon resonance, we demonstrate that K8, but not K18, binds directly and preferentially to the F508del over the WT human NBD1 (nucleotide-binding domain-1). In vivo K8 interaction with F508del-CFTR was confirmed by proximity ligation assay in HeLa cells and in primary cultures of human respiratory epithelial cells. Ablation of K8 expression by siRNA in F508del-expressing HeLa cells led to the recovery of CFTR-dependent iodide efflux. Moreover, F508del-expressing mice topically treated with K8-siRNA showed restored nasal potential difference, equivalent to that of WT mice. These results show that disruption of F508del-CFTR and K8 interaction leads to the correction of the F508del-CFTR processing defect, suggesting a novel potential therapeutic target in CF.

    Abstract: A genome-wide association study (GWAS) of bladder cancer identified a genetic marker rs8102137 within the 19q12 region as a novel susceptibility variant. This marker is located upstream of the CCNE1 gene, which encodes cyclin E, a cell-cycle protein. We performed genetic fine-mapping analysis of the CCNE1 region using data from two bladder cancer GWAS (5,942 cases and 10,857 controls). We found that the original GWAS marker rs8102137 represents a group of 47 linked SNPs (with r(2) 〉/= 0.7) associated with increased bladder cancer risk. From this group, we selected a functional promoter variant rs7257330, which showed strong allele-specific binding of nuclear proteins in several cell lines. In both GWASs, rs7257330 was associated only with aggressive bladder cancer, with a combined per-allele OR = 1.18 [95% confidence interval (CI), 1.09-1.27, P = 4.67 x 10(-5)] versus OR = 1.01 (95% CI, 0.93-1.10, P = 0.79) for nonaggressive disease, with P = 0.0015 for case-only analysis. Cyclin E protein expression analyzed in 265 bladder tumors was increased in aggressive tumors (P = 0.013) and, independently, with each rs7257330-A risk allele (Ptrend = 0.024). Overexpression of recombinant cyclin E in cell lines caused significant acceleration of cell cycle. In conclusion, we defined the 19q12 signal as the first GWAS signal specific for aggressive bladder cancer. Molecular mechanisms of this genetic association may be related to cyclin E overexpression and alteration of cell cycle in carriers of CCNE1 risk variants. In combination with established bladder cancer risk factors and other somatic and germline genetic markers, the CCNE1 variants could be useful for inclusion into bladder cancer risk prediction models.

    Abstract: Thirteen common susceptibility loci have been reproducibly associated with cutaneous malignant melanoma (CMM). We report the results of an international 2-stage meta-analysis of CMM genome-wide association studies (GWAS). This meta-analysis combines 11 GWAS (5 previously unpublished) and a further three stage 2 data sets, totaling 15,990 CMM cases and 26,409 controls. Five loci not previously associated with CMM risk reached genome-wide significance (P 〈 5 x 10(-8)), as did 2 previously reported but unreplicated loci and all 13 established loci. Newly associated SNPs fall within putative melanocyte regulatory elements, and bioinformatic and expression quantitative trait locus (eQTL) data highlight candidate genes in the associated regions, including one involved in telomere biology.
