Abstract : INTRODUCTION: There is limited knowledge about early-onset dementia (EOD) on fracture risk. METHODS: Individuals ages 50 to 64 were identified from the National Database of Health Insurance Claims and Specific Health Checkups of Japan (2012 to 2019). The association between EOD and fractures and the association between cholinesterase inhibitors for EOD and fractures were evaluated using logistic regression analyses. RESULTS: We identified 13,614 EOD patients and 9,144,560 cognitively healthy individuals. The analysis revealed that EOD was associated with an increased risk of hip fractures (adjusted odds ratio, 95% confidence interval: 8.79, 7.37-10.48), vertebral fractures (1.73, 1.48-2.01), and major osteoporotic fractures (2.05, 1.83-2.30) over 3 years. The use of cholinesterase inhibitors was significantly associated with a reduction in hip fractures among EOD patients (0.28, 0.11-0.69). DISCUSSION: EOD patients have a higher risk of osteoporotic fractures than cognitively healthy individuals. The use of cholinesterase inhibitors may reduce the risk of hip fracture among EOD patients. HIGHLIGHTS: It is unknown whether early-onset dementia (EOD) increases the risk of fractures. We identified 13,614 individuals with EOD using a nationwide administrative database. Patients with EOD have a higher risk of hip, vertebral, and major osteoporotic fractures. The use of cholinesterase inhibitors may reduce hip fracture among patients with EOD.

Abstract : As a base for human transcriptome and functional genomics, we created the "full-length long Japan" (FLJ) collection of sequenced human cDNAs. We determined the entire sequence of 21,243 selected clones and found that 14,490 cDNAs (10,897 clusters) were unique to the FLJ collection. About half of them (5,416) seemed to be protein-coding. Of those, 1,999 clusters had not been predicted by computational methods. The distribution of GC content of nonpredicted cDNAs had a peak at approximately 58% compared with a peak at approximately 42%for predicted cDNAs. Thus, there seems to be a slight bias against GC-rich transcripts in current gene prediction procedures. The rest of the cDNAs unique to the FLJ collection (5,481) contained no obvious open reading frames (ORFs) and thus are candidate noncoding RNAs. About one-fourth of them (1,378) showed a clear pattern of splicing. The distribution of GC content of noncoding cDNAs was narrow and had a peak at approximately 42%, relatively low compared with that of protein-coding cDNAs.

Title : MDP77: A novel neurite-outgrowth-promoting protein predominantly expressed in chick muscles - Uyeda_2000_Biochem.Biophys.Res.Commun_269_564

Abstract : A 4.7 kb chick cDNA clone that coded for the novel muscle-derived protein, MDP77, was isolated from a cDNA library of the denervated crus muscles using an antibody which inhibited the neurite outgrowth activity. MDP77 consisted of 676 aa with a calculated molecular mass of 77 k. The deduced amino acid sequence exhibited an extended coiled-coil domain and a leucine zipper motif. A recombinant protein promoted the neurite-outgrowth from the cultured chick neurons of the spinal cord in a dose-dependent manner. Northern blotting and in situ hybridization revealed that MDP77 was predominantly expressed in the cardiac and the skeletal muscles. In the COS-7 cells transfected with the cDNA of the epitope-tagged MDP77, the expressed protein was detected in the culture medium, suggesting that the MDP77 was secreted.

Title : Clinical factors that affect blood gases in non-smoking women with chronic liver disease - Fujimori_1998_Respir.Med_92_57

Abstract : Chronic liver disease is often accompanied by hypoxaemia. We investigated the clinical factors that were related to the arterial oxygen tension (PaO2) in 40 women, all non-smokers with chronic liver disease. They were positive for hepatitis C virus (HCV) antibody and had no evidence of cardiopulmonary disease. Arterial blood was collected from patients at rest (> 15 min) for analysis of blood gases. We determined the correlation between blood gas tension and the clinical variables, i.e. the presence or absence of skin manifestations such as cutaneous spider nevi and palmar erythema, the presence or absence of splenomegaly, vital capacity, forced expiratory volume in one second, V25/body height, serum alanine aminotransferase (AST), serum asparate aminotransferase (ALT), serum cholinesterase, serum gamma-globulin/total protein, excretion of indocyanine green at 15 min (15-min retention rate, ICG level), blood level of ammonia, blood level of endotoxin, plasma level of glucagon and the serum level of type IV collagen-7S. The mean level of PaO2 was 78 +/- 11 (range: 43-95) torr. The mean alveolar-arterial oxygen tension gradient (A-aDO2) was 19 +/- 13 (range: 2-60) torr. Multiple regression analysis used PaO2 and A-aDO2 as objective variables, and the clinical findings as explanatory variables. The explanatory variables that were significantly correlated with blood gas values were ICG level, blood level of endotoxin and presence of skin manifestations. The ICG level showed a high correlation with blood gas values; the ICG level increased, the PaO2 decreased (r = -0.69), while the A-aDO2 showed a high positive correlation (r = +0.78, P < 0.001). Findings suggest that a reduction in hepatic blood flow and hepatocellular function interfere with the inactivation of vasoactive substances such as endotoxin by the liver, leading to the development of skin manifestations, the dilatation of intrapulmonary capillaries and the induction of hypoxaemia.

Title : Neurocrescin: a novel neurite-outgrowth factor secreted by muscle after denervation - Nishimune_1997_Neuroreport_8_3649

Abstract : Regeneration of injured axons at neuromuscular junctions has been assumed to be regulated by extracellular factors that promote neurite outgrowth. We report here the cloning of a novel neurite outgrowth factor, designated neurocrescin, from chick denervated skeletal muscle. A recombinant neurocrescin promoted neurite outgrowth from cultured neurons of spinal cord and telencephalon of chick embryo. It was expressed predominantly in neural tissue and muscle, and was secreted extracellularly after intramolecular cleavage. This truncated form was detected in denervated muscle but not in innervated muscle. Thus, neurocrescin appears to be a novel neurite outgrowth factor that is secreted in an activity-dependent fashion. A highly homologous counterpart was also cloned from mouse brain.
