Despite the critical role of microRNA in inflammatory response, little is known about its function in inflammation-induced Acute Lung Injury (ALI)/Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS). To investigate the potential role of microRNA146a (miR-146a) in ALI, we used lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced ALI rat model. Our data revealed that LPS-induced lung(More)
BACKGROUND Novel influenza A viruses of avian-origin may be the precursors of pandemic strains. This descriptive study aims to introduce a novel avian-origin influenza A (H10N8) virus which can infect humans and cause severe diseases. METHODS Collecting clinical data of three cases of human infection with a novel reassortment avian influenza A (H10N8)(More)
OBJECTIVE Although microRNA-132 (miR-132) has been shown to be involved in the inflammatory regulation, its role in sepsis-induced lung injury is unknown. We hypothesized that miR-132 attenuated lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced inflammation of alveolar macrophages by targeting acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and enhancing the acetylcholine (ACh)-mediated(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the protective effect of transfected microRNA-146a (miR-146a) on mice with sepsis-induced acute lung injury (ALI) in vivo. METHODS Twenty-four healthy male BALB/C mice were randomly divided into sham group, sepsis group, transfection group and transfection control group, each n=6. Mice in transfection group were given miR-146a(More)
BACKGROUND The anti-inflammatory effect of miR-155 was closely linked to transforming growth factor-β-activated kinase-1-binding protein 2 (TAB2) and autophagy. This study investigated the role of miR-155 in attenuation of septic lung injury through TAB2 and autophagy in mouse model and in vitro. METHODS Patients who underwent fiberoptic bronchoscope(More)
