    Objective To detect the level of N-α-acetyltransferase 10 (Naa10) in the saliva and serum of patients with oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) and normal adults, and to explore its clinical significance.Methods Using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) to detect the levels of Naa10 in the serum and saliva of OSCC patients and normal adults, the correlation between the level of Naa10 and age, gender, nationality, histological grade, clinical stage and tumor metastasis were analyzed. To evaluate the value of salivary and serum Naa10 in the diagnosis of OSCC by receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve.Results The levels of Naa10 in saliva and serum of patients with OSCC were higher than those in normal controls. In both patients with OSCC and normal controls, salivary Naa10 was higher than serum Naa10. Level of Naa10 in serum was correlated with the age of OSCC patients (P<0.05). Level of Naa10 in saliva was correlated with the histological grade of OSCC patients (P<0.05). But there was no statistical difference between the other pathological parameters and Naa10 levels in saliva and serum. The area under the ROC curve of Naa10 in saliva and serum was 0.924 and 0.713. In saliva and serum, the sensitivity, specificity and accuracy of Naa10 were 85.4%, 85.0%, 85.3% and 74.2%, 65.0%, 72.1%.Conclusion Detection of Naa10 levels in saliva and serum is useful in diagnosis of OSCC, and its sensitivity and specificity in saliva are better than those in serum. The level of Naa10 in saliva is related to the degree of differentiation, which may help to determine the degree of malignancy of OSCC.

    Abstract ( 922 )   HTML ( 16 )   PDF(pc) (1269KB) ( 338 )   Save
    Objective This work aims to determine the changes in periodontal index and inflammatory factor levels in gingival crevicular fluid after implant restoration in patients with chronic periodontitis.Methods A total of 40 patients with tooth-loss in chronic periodontitis and healthy periodontium were selected as the research and control groups, respectively, and were treated with implant restoration from June 2015 to June 2017. Probing depth (PD), modification plaque index (mPLI), papilla index score (PIS), modification sulcus bleeding index (mSBI) and marginal bone loss volume were detected and compared at 1, 3, and 6 months after implant restoration between the two groups. The interleukin (IL)-1β, IL-6, and IL-8 levels in gingival crevicular fluid of two groups were detected and compared.Results The implant survival rate after implant restoration for the two groups were both 100%. Three months after implant restoration, IL-1β, IL-6, and IL-8 levels in the research group were significantly increased as opposed to the levels 1 month after implant restoration; and the mentioned levels in the research group are also higher than that of 3 months after implant restoration in control group (P<0.05, P<0.01). Six months after implant restoration, the PD, mPLI, mSBI and marginal bone loss volume for the research group increased compared with that at 1 month after implant restoration; the mentioned results in the research group are significantly higher than that of 6 months after implant restoration in control group (P<0.05, P<0.01). The PIS of the two groups showed no statistically significance (P>0.05).Conclusion The short-term effect of implant restoration in chronic periodontitis patients is ideal, but the risk of peri-implantitis is higher on patients with healthy periodontium compared with the other group.

    As the development of genomics and transcriptomics, non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) have been paid much attention. Previous studies have suggested that ncRNAs could regulate gene expression through several biological processes such as chromosome remodeling, transcription, and posttranscription translation. Abnormal versions of ncRNAs are closely related to several human diseases such as the generation and development of tumors. Therefore, ncRNAs may become novel biomarkers in the diagnosis, prognosis and target therapies of tumor research. As the essential role of ncRNAs playing in tongue squamous cell carcinoma (TSCC), the latest domestic and foreign literatures in TSCC progression were reviewed in this article.

    Song Hongning, Wang Xuxia, Zhang Jun
    Inter J Stomatol. 2018, 45 (4):  425-432.  DOI: 10.7518/gjkq.2018.04.010
    Abstract ( 516 )   HTML ( 3 )   PDF(pc) (1319KB) ( 643 )   Save
    Long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) is a family of non-protein-coding RNAs with length of more than 200 nucleotides. These lncRNAs have gained considerable attention and recently emerged as main participants in biological processes. An increasing number of studies showed that lncRNAs play important roles in diverse cellular processes, including proliferation, differentiation, apoptosis, migration, invasion and chromatin remodelling. Importantly, lncRNAs are increasingly recognised in cancer biology and prognosis. Multiple studies also indicated that lncRNAs play important roles in tumour growth and metastasis and poor prognosis in multiple tumour types. These RNAs may also act as a potential biomarker and therapeutic target for human cancers. Furthermore, lncRNA deregulation is observed in multiple tumours. However, the molecular mechanism of lncRNAs in cancer initiation, progression and metastasis remains poorly understood. In this review, we highlight the recent findings on lncRNAs in cancer pathogenesis and summarise an overview of current knowledge concerning the expression and role of lncRNA in various cancers. Additionally, lncRNAs emerged as a new class of promising cancer biomarkers. Independent studies demonstrated the feasibility of their use as tools in the diagnosis and prognosis of different types of malignancies and in the prediction and possible monitoring treatment response. The role of lncRNAs in cancers is an emerging field of study. Although our understanding about the role of lncRNAs in the onset and progression of cancers is still in its infancy, further understanding the activities of lncRNAs will secure improved treatment options for cancer patients.
