Patient Safety Fellowship

The Jewish Healthcare Foundation, together with Health Careers Futures, is now accepting applications for the 2020 Patient Safety Fellowship.

As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to affect all facets of life in the U.S., especially the healthcare system, the Patient Safety Fellowship will teach aspiring leaders the fundamentals of patient safety as they relate to preparedness and crisis intervention, using COVID-19 as a case study. Despite knowledge of the disease ahead of its spread in the U.S., how did the system fail to adequately prepare and provide an effective response in the initial phases of the outbreak? Through researching the ecosystem of authorities that influence patient safety, infectious disease and response, and by understanding the context that leadership plays in times of crisis, Fellows will have the opportunity to answer those questions.

During the 9-week program (8 sessions), Fellows will interact with some of the region’s and nation’s foremost experts in infectious disease, emergency preparedness, and experts in safety science to understand what went wrong and what worked well in the U.S. preparation and response to COVID-19. Fellows will develop leadership skills in crisis preparation and intervention, applying principles from epidemiology, predictive analytics, crisis leadership, and quality engineering to take away crucial learnings to prevent these missteps from happening again in the future. During the finale, Fellows will be tasked with synthesizing all of the lessons they have learned and lead a response to a simulated disaster scenario.

A virtual open house for candidates interested in learning more about the Fellowship will be held on Wednesday, April 8th from 12pm – 1:30pm.

Paper: Organophosphorus pesticide chlorpyrifos intake promotes obesity and insulin resistance through impacting gut and gut microbiota

Authors: Yiran Liang, Jing Zhan, Donghui Liu, Mai Luo, Jiajun Han, Xueke Liu, Chang Liu, Zheng Cheng, Zhiqiang Zhou, and Peng Wang

Abstract:
Background
Disruption of the gut microbiota homeostasis may induce low-grade inflammation leading to obesity-associated diseases. A major protective mechanism is to use the multi-layered mucus structures to keep a safe distance between gut epithelial cells and microbiota. To investigate whether pesticides would induce insulin resistance/obesity through interfering with mucus-bacterial interactions, we conducted a study to determine how long-term exposure to chlorpyrifos affected C57Bl/6 and CD-1 (ICR) mice fed high- or normal-fat diets. To further investigate the effects of chlorpyrifos-altered microbiota, antibiotic treatment and microbiota transplantation experiments were conducted.

Results
The results showed that chlorpyrifos caused broken integrity of the gut barrier, leading to increased lipopolysaccharide entry into the body and finally low-grade inflammation, while genetic background and diet pattern have limited influence on the chlorpyrifos-induced results. Moreover, the mice given chlorpyrifos-altered microbiota had gained more fat and lower insulin sensitivity.

Conclusions
Our results suggest that widespread use of pesticides may contribute to the worldwide epidemic of inflammation-related diseases.

Paper: M2 polarization of macrophages facilitates arsenic-induced cell transformation of lung epithelial cells

Authors:  Jiajun Cui, Wenhua Xu, Jian Chen, Hui Li, Lu Dai, Jacqueline A. Frank,Shaojun Peng, Siying Wang, Gang Chen

Abstract: The alterations in microenvironment upon chronic arsenic exposure may
contribute to arsenic-induced lung carcinogenesis. Immune cells, such as
macrophages, play an important role in mediating the microenvironment in the lungs.
Macrophages carry out their functions after activation. There are two activation status
for macrophages: classical (M1) or alternative (M2); the latter is associated with
tumorigenesis. Our previous work showed that long-term arsenic exposure induces
transformation of lung epithelial cells. However, the crosstalk between epithelial cells
and macrophages upon arsenic exposure has not been investigated. In this study,
using a co-culture system in which human lung epithelial cells are cultured with
macrophages, we determined that long-term arsenic exposure polarizes macrophages
towards M2 status through ROS generation. Co-culture with epithelial cells further
enhanced the polarization of macrophages as well as transformation of epithelial cells,
while blocking macrophage M2 polarization decreased the transformation. In addition,
macrophage M2 polarization decreased autophagy activity, which may account for
increased cell transformation of epithelial cells with co-culture of macrophages.
