Paper: Declining exposures to lead and cadmium contribute to explaining the reduction of cardiovascular mortality in the US population, 1988–2004

Authors: Adrian Ruiz-Hernandez, Ana Navas-Acien, Roberto Pastor-Barriuso, Ciprian M Crainiceanu, Josep Redon, Eliseo Guallar, Maria Tellez-Plaza

Abstract:

Background
Lead and cadmium exposures have markedly declined in the USA following the implementation of large-scale public health policies and could have contributed to the unexplained decline in cardiovascular mortality in US adults. We evaluated the potential contribution of lead and cadmium exposure reductions to explain decreasing cardiovascular mortality trends occurring in the USA from 1988–94 to 1999–2004.

Methods
Prospective study in 15 421 adults ≥40 years old who had participated in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 1988–94 or 1999–2004. We estimated the amount of change in cardiovascular mortality over time that can be independently attributed to the intermediate pathway of changes in blood lead and urine cadmium concentrations.

Results
There was a 42.0% decrease in blood lead and a 31.0% decrease in urine cadmium concentrations. The cardiovascular mortality rate ratio [95% confidence intervals (CIs)] associated with a doubling of metal levels was 1.19 (1.07, 1.31) for blood lead and 1.20 (1.09, 1.32) for urine cadmium. The absolute reduction in cardiovascular deaths comparing 1999–2004 to 1988–94 was 230.7 deaths/100 000 person-years, in models adjusted for traditional cardiovascular risk factors. Among these avoided deaths, 52.0 (95% CI 8.4, 96.7) and 19.4 (4.3, 36.4) deaths/100 000 person-years were attributable to changes in lead and cadmium, respectively.

Conclusions
Environmental declines in lead and cadmium exposures were associated with reductions in cardiovascular mortality in US adults. Given the fact that lead and cadmium remain associated with cardiovascular disease at relatively low levels of exposure, prevention strategies that further minimize exposure to lead and cadmium may be needed.

The Offices of Student Affairs and Faculty Affairs are offering a lunch hour hands-on seminar session on building resilience on Thursday, March 1, 12:00-1:00, in room 458 Salk Hall as part of the School of Dental Medicine Teaching and Learning Seminar Series. 

Building a Tougher Student: Applying the Research on Mindset

Are students today less resilient than they used to be? Are they more prone to crack under stress or adversity? In this workshop, we’ll explore those questions and discuss the research on Mindset, identifying research-based interventions and practical teaching strategies to help students build resilience and learn from setbacks and failure. By the end, participants will be able to:

•   Distinguish the characteristics of a growth vs. fixed mindset

•   Discuss evidence-based interventions shown to build resilience

•   Identify specific teaching strategies to leverage Mindset research 

Session facilitated by Marie Norman, PhD, is Associate Professor and Director of the Innovative Design for Education and Assessment (IDEA) Lab at the Institute for Clinical Research Education in the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Medicine.

Paper: NF-κB Restricts Inflammasome Activation via Elimination of Damaged Mitochondria 

Authors: Zhong Z, Umemura A, Sanchez-Lopez E, Liang S, Shalapour S, Wong J, He F, Boassa D, Perkins G, Ali SR, McGeough MD, Ellisman MH, Seki E, Gustafsson AB, Hoffman HM, Diaz-Meco MT, Moscat J, Karin M.

Abstract: Nuclear factor κB (NF-κB), a key activator of inflammation, primes the NLRP3-inflammasome for activation by inducing pro-IL-1β and NLRP3 expression. NF-κB, however, also prevents excessive inflammation and restrains NLRP3-inflammasome activation through a poorly defined mechanism. We now show that NF-κB exerts its anti-inflammatory activity by inducing delayed accumulation of the autophagy receptor p62/SQSTM1. External NLRP3-activating stimuli trigger a form of mitochondrial (mt) damage that is caspase-1- and NLRP3-independent and causes release of direct NLRP3-inflammasome activators, including mtDNA and mtROS. Damaged mitochondria undergo Parkin-dependent ubiquitin conjugation and are specifically recognized by p62, which induces their mitophagic clearance. Macrophage-specific p62 ablation causes pronounced accumulation of damaged mitochondria and excessive IL-1β-dependent inflammation, enhancing macrophage death. Therefore, the "NF-κB-p62-mitophagy" pathway is a macrophage-intrinsic regulatory loop through which NF-κB restrains its own inflammation-promoting activity and orchestrates a self-limiting host response that maintains homeostasis and favors tissue repair.

As the first filmmakers ever allowed by the United Nations to be given a tent and registered inside a refugee camp, [they] were able to get a never before seen look into the world’s most pressing crisis. [Their] experience uncovered overwhelming trauma but also the untapped potential our uprooted neighbors posses. With the right programs we can support healing, ease the burden on host countries and even empower the disenfranchised by unleashing people’s creativity.

Paper: Inactivating mutations and hypermethylation of the NKX2-1/TTF-1 gene in non-terminal respiratory unit-type lung adenocarcinomas

Abstract: The major driver mutations of lung cancer, EGFR mutations and EML4-ALK fusion, are mainly detected in terminal respiratory unit (TRU)-type lung adenocarcinomas, which typically show lepidic and/or papillary patterns, but are rarely associated with a solid or invasive mucinous morphology. In order to elucidate the key genetic events in non-TRU-type lung cancer, we carried out whole-exome sequencing on 43 non-TRU-type lung adenocarcinomas based on morphology (17 acinar, nine solid, and two enteric adenocarcinomas, and 15 adenocarcinomas with a mucinous morphology). Our analysis identified mutations in TP53 (16/43, 37.2%), KRAS (13/43, 30.2%), and NKX2-1/TTF-1 (7/43; 16.3%) as the top three significantly mutated genes, while the EGFR mutation was rare (1/43, 2.3%) in this cohort. Eight NKX2-1/TTF-1 mutations (five frameshift, two nonsense, and one missense) were identified, with one case harboring two distinct NKX2-1/TTF-1 mutations (one missense and one frameshift). Functional assays with the NK2 homeobox 1 (NKX2-1)/thyroid transcription factor 1 (TTF-1) mutants revealed that none of them retain the activity as a transcriptional factor. Histologically, invasive mucinous adenocarcinomas accounted for most of the NKX2-1/TTF-1 mutations (five cases), as well as one enteric and one acinar adenocarcinoma. Immunohistochemistry showed that the cohort was largely divided into TTF-1-postive/hepatocyte nuclear factor 4-α (HNF4-α)-negative and TTF-1-negative/HNF4-α-positive groups. NKX2-1/TTF-1 mutations were exclusively found in the latter, in which the gastrointestinal markers, mucin 5AC and cytokeratin 20, were frequently expressed. Bisulfite sequencing revealed that the NKX2-1/TTF-1 gene body was highly methylated in NKX2-1/TTF-1-negative cases, including those without the NKX2-1/TTF-1 mutations. The genetic or epigenetic inactivation of NKX2-1/TTF-1 may play an essential role in the development and aberrant differentiation of non-TRU-type lung adenocarcinomas.

Thu 3/22/2018 5:30PM - 7:45PM
Public Health Auditorium (G23)

Children living with cancer is a tragedy made worse with insufficient infrastructure, funds, access to treatment, and trained medical professionals. Unfortunately, families caring for children with cancer in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs) face this harsh reality, and it contributes to the low survival rate of just 20% for pediatric cancer, a stark contrast to high-income countries’ 80% survival rate. 

Join the Center for Global Health and the Global Health Student Association in viewing the new documentary film, "How I Live," which delves into the unique issues people of LMICs face. After the film, we’ll have a panel discussion with the film’s producers and global health professionals with a reception afterward.

As part of the Provost’s Year of Healthy U initiative, we are organizing a one-day cross-disciplinary conference around the topic of family and health. In this conference, we will focus on the central role of the family as a fundamental building block of society. Family is often the foundation of determining a healthy (or unhealthy) lifestyle for all family members. Family narrative and dynamics, gender identity, kinship and social organization, race, literacy, household income, and sociolinguistic background represent the early input children receive and shape the construction of identities, roles in society and expectations and values. They affect the earliest experiences which impact our health.The Year of Healthy U and this conference represent a unique opportunity to convene experts to discuss the diverse roles family plays in health and well-being and to discuss how to make our community safe and healthy for all.

Paper: Blockade of dengue virus infection and viral cytotoxicity in neuronal cells in vitro and in vivo by targeting endocytic pathway

Authors: Min-Ru Ho, Tsung-Ting Tsai, Chia-Ling Chen, Ming-Kai Jhan, Cheng-Chieh Tsai,  Yi-Chao Lee, Chun-Han Chen & Chiou-Feng Li

Abstract: Dengue virus (DENV) infection in neuronal cells was speculated to trigger neuropathy. Herein, we determined the blockade of DENV infection by targeting endocytic pathways in vitro and in vivo. In DENV-infected mouse brains, we previously showed that viral proteins are expressed in neuronal cells around the hippocampus with accompanying neurotoxicity. DENV caused infection, including entry, double-stranded (ds)RNA replication, protein expression, and virus release, followed by cytotoxicity in the mouse neuronal Neuro-2a cell line. Pharmacologically blocking clathrin-mediated endocytosis of the DENV retarded viral replication. Targeting vacuolar-type H+-ATPase (V-ATPase)-based endosomal acidification effectively blocked the DENV replication process, but had no direct effect on viral translation. Blockade of the clathrin- and V-ATPase-based endocytic pathways also attenuated DENVinduced neurotoxicity. Inhibiting endosomal acidification effectively retarded DENV infection, acute viral encephalitis, and mortality. These results demonstrate that clathrin mediated endocytosis of DENV followed by endosomal acidification-dependent viral replication in neuronal cells, which can lead to neurotoxicity.

Paper: TGFβ attenuates tumour response to PD-L1 blockade by contributing to exclusion of T cells

Authors: Sanjeev Mariathasan, Shannon J. Turley[…]Thomas Powles

Abstract: Therapeutic antibodies that block the programmed death-1 (PD-1)–programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) pathway can induce robust and durable responses in patients with various cancers, including metastatic urothelial cancer1,2,3,4,5. However, these responses only occur in a subset of patients. Elucidating the determinants of response and resistance is key to improving outcomes and developing new treatment strategies. Here we examined tumours from a large cohort of patients with metastatic urothelial cancer who were treated with an anti-PD-L1 agent (atezolizumab) and identified major determinants of clinical outcome. Response to treatment was associated with CD8+ T-effector cell phenotype and, to an even greater extent, high neoantigen or tumour mutation burden. Lack of response was associated with a signature of transforming growth factor β (TGFβ) signalling in fibroblasts. This occurred particularly in patients with tumours, which showed exclusion of CD8+ T cells from the tumour parenchyma that were instead found in the fibroblast- and collagen-rich peritumoural stroma; a common phenotype among patients with metastatic urothelial cancer. Using a mouse model that recapitulates this immune-excluded phenotype, we found that therapeutic co-administration of TGFβ-blocking and anti-PD-L1 antibodies reduced TGFβ signalling in stromal cells, facilitated T-cell penetration into the centre of tumours, and provoked vigorous anti-tumour immunity and tumour regression. Integration of these three independent biological features provides the best basis for understanding patient outcome in this setting and suggests that TGFβ shapes the tumour microenvironment to restrain anti-tumour immunity by restricting T-cell infiltration.

Paper: ApoE4 markedly exacerbates tau-mediated neurodegeneration in a mouse model of tauopathy

Authors: Shi Y, Yamada K, Liddelow SA, Smith ST, Zhao L, Luo W, Tsai RM, Spina S, Grinberg LT, Rojas JC, Gallardo G, Wang K, Roh J, Robinson G, Finn MB, Jiang H, Sullivan PM, Baufeld C, Wood MW, Sutphen C, McCue L, Xiong C, Del-Aguila JL, Morris JC, Cruchaga C; Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative, Fagan AM, Miller BL, Boxer AL, Seeley WW, Butovsky O, Barres BA, Paul SM, Holtzman DM.

Abstract: APOE4 is the strongest genetic risk factor for late-onset Alzheimer disease. ApoE4 increases brain amyloid-β pathology relative to other ApoE isoforms. However, whether APOE independently influences tau pathology, the other major proteinopathy of Alzheimer disease and other tauopathies, or tau-mediated neurodegeneration, is not clear. By generating P301S tau transgenic mice on either a human ApoE knock-in (KI) or ApoE knockout (KO) background, here we show that P301S/E4 mice have significantly higher tau levels in the brain and a greater extent of somatodendritic tau redistribution by three months of age compared with P301S/E2, P301S/E3, and P301S/EKO mice. By nine months of age, P301S mice with different ApoE genotypes display distinct phosphorylated tau protein (p-tau) staining patterns. P301S/E4 mice develop markedly more brain atrophy and neuroinflammation than P301S/E2 and P301S/E3 mice, whereas P301S/EKO mice are largely protected from these changes. In vitro, E4-expressing microglia exhibit higher innate immune reactivity after lipopolysaccharide treatment. Co-culturing P301S tau-expressing neurons with E4-expressing mixed glia results in a significantly higher level of tumour-necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) secretion and markedly reduced neuronal viability compared with neuron/E2 and neuron/E3 co-cultures. Neurons co-cultured with EKO glia showed the greatest viability with the lowest level of secreted TNF-α. Treatment of P301S neurons with recombinant ApoE (E2, E3, E4) also leads to some neuronal damage and death compared with the absence of ApoE, with ApoE4 exacerbating the effect. In individuals with a sporadic primary tauopathy, the presence of an ε4 allele is associated with more severe regional neurodegeneration. In individuals who are positive for amyloid-β pathology with symptomatic Alzheimer disease who usually have tau pathology, ε4-carriers demonstrate greater rates of disease progression. Our results demonstrate that ApoE affects tau pathogenesis, neuroinflammation, and tau-mediated neurodegeneration independently of amyloid-β pathology. ApoE4 exerts a 'toxic' gain of function whereas the absence of ApoE is protective.

Global Healthcare Delivery Course: Harvard Medical School
Fri 6/8/2018 to Sat 6/9/2018


The program is designed to give practicing clinicians an introduction to best practices in the provision of health services in low-resource settings globally. The course will discuss the biosocial determinants of health and disease and explore how programs that deliver healthcare in low-resource settings address these factors to improve the health of the communities they serve.
 
Topics covered in the program will include: 
- Understanding the global burden of disease and social determinants of health, 
- Infectious Diseases: HIV prevention and treatment and global tuberculosis control, 
- Non-communicable disease prevention and treatment: cancer care in global health, emergency medical care in global settings, global surgery, and mental health in a global context, 
- Human resource capacity building: the role of community health workers in health service delivery, and
- Global healthcare policy.  
The course will be taught through lectures and an interactive case approach that seek to provide participants with a rich understanding of the complexities of health care delivery in low-resource settings.
The program will include two days of course work and case discussions as well as a “meet the faculty” reception.
