Dr. Weiping Ren discovers antibiotic useful for localized treatment of bone wear
Posted on：Tuesday, August 9, 2011
DETROIT - Total joint replacement surgeries can help relieve joint pain common in people with conditions like osteoarthritis. But sometimes, the debris from prosthetic joints leads to aseptic loosening, or disintegration of surrounding bones. In 2009, a Wayne State University researcher determined that the anti-inflammatory antibiotic erythromycin can prevent and treat such disintegration. There was one caveat, however：there are side effects associated with long-term usage of erythromycin.
But Weiping Ren, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor of biomedical engineering in WSU's College of Engineering, has found a solution. Erythromycin can be administered directly at the site of bone breakdown, rather than orally, so the whole body is not affected. The details of Ren's study are published in the August 2011 issue of Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research.
"Although oral erythromycin reportedly inhibits inflammation in patients with aseptic loosening, long-term systematic（oral）erythromycin treatment is not recommended," said Ren.
Used primarily for its antimicrobial properties, erythromycin is used to treat conditions like respiratory tract infections and whooping cough, both caused by harmful bacteria. In addition to fighting bacteria, erythromycin reduces inflammation, making it a successful treatment for aseptic loosening.
"But long-term systemic use of erythromycin raises concerns about various side effects, including bacterial resistance, liver damage and gastrointestinal discomfort," said Ren. "We hypothesized that it may be advantageous to restrict erythromycin delivery to the inflammatory tissue around the implant to avoid these side effects."
To test his idea, Ren implanted metal pins coated with erythromycin in the inflamed tissue surrounding the prosthetic joint. He measured bone growth and implant stability, both indicators of how well the prosthesis integrates with the bone, and analyzed microscopic images of the periprosthetic tissue - the affected tissue surrounding the prosthesis.
Ren found that at very low doses - about a quarter of the dose used for killing bacteria - erythromycin effectively reduces aseptic loosening inflammation. "At the same time, we confirmed that oral erythromycin can be effectively delivered into the periprosthetic tissues, supporting our hypothesis that oral erythromycin can be used as one of the nonsurgical treatment methods to extend implant longevity," said Ren.
By extending implant longevity, localized erythromycin will safely treat aseptic loosening and reduce the likelihood that patients with the condition will need revision surgery. "Medical insurance costs will be greatly reduced, because revision surgery is much more expensive than primary surgery," said Ren.
Ren collaborated with David C. Markel, M.D., chairman of the Detroit Medical Center-Providence Hospital orthopaedic residency program and chief of orthopaedic surgery at Providence Hospital in Southfield, Mich.
The current study was funded by the Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation. Ren also received funding through the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Foundation's McDevitt Excellence in Research Award for his 2009 study published in Bone.

New approach for regioselective synthesis--proteins as guidance for regioselective modification of steroids and disaccharides. The goal of this project is to establish a new approach of using proteins as guidance for regioselective synthesis. We will demonstrate this method by describing two projects that have strong application potential. One is to use bovine serum albumin（BSA）to guide the regioselective reduction of steroids. The other is to use lectin（concanavalin A）to guide the regioselective modification of disaccharides such as lactose and melibiose. Modified steroids, disaccharides and oligosaccharides play important roles in drug and vaccine development. This new method may be useful in the development of new modified steroids and carbohydrates for developing new drugs and vaccines.
Two-dimensional stationary phases for liquid chromatographic separations. The area of high performance liquid chromatography（HPLC）is an important field of research. One of the areas of great interest is the separation of biomolecules- proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates, etc. Currently, many bioseparations require several steps using different separation columns for an adequate isolation of the target biomolecules. This research was undertaken to create stationary phases that could be used in HPLC columns for separation of biomolecules. The incorporation of different functionalities into stationary phases will eliminate time-consuming steps for these isolations and improve efficiency. The stationary phases have a combination of functionalities that allow them to be used as two-dimensional material for bioseparation.
Biosensors based on artificial receptors Boronic acid and its derivatives have a proven record as synthetic receptors and probes. Therefore, a properly designed synthetic receptor comprised of boronic acids may be used as a glucose sensor due to the boronate/sugar interactions. It is proposed that a number of artificial receptors for glucose be synthesized, using the emerging technology of molecular imprinting. Molecular imprinting technology is a very promising technique for making artificial antibodies and receptors. It is a method that introduces specific binding sites into a synthetic polymer by co-polymerization of functional monomers and cross linkers in the presence of a template（in this case, a glucose molecule）. When the Template is washed out; the resulting polymer contains specific sties for the template, thus making it an artificial receptor.
Improving Diabetes Treatment
August 23, 2009
Diabetes patients rely on frequent glucose readings to manage their health, but glucose often doesn't provide an accurate picture. Levels may fluctuate, depending on the person's most recent meal, overall diet, physical activity, even mood. Associate professor Sean Liu, who teaches in the Chemistry Department, is working on an alternative to assess patients' diabetes condition that's simple, reliable and cost-effective.
Instead of glucose, Liu measures the amount of glycated hemoglobin, also known as A1C, which is a more stable indicator of the patient's health. "We know that diabetes doesn't kill patients. The complications do, like kidney failure, heart disease and stroke," Liu says. "Higher levels of A1C are a sign that a diabetic will have a higher risk of complications."
However, measuring A1C levels is complicated, time-consuming and expensive. Patients have to visit their doctor's office to have blood drawn and sent to a lab for analysis. Results usually take a few days.
Liu's research focuses on an "affinity" material that binds to A1C and can be measured more easily. So far, preliminary experiments have been successful in determining A1C levels through the affinity material. Through future collaborations with other scientists and engineers, Liu hopes to develop a low-cost portable device that can measure A1C levels quickly.
"Instead of sending blood samples to a lab, where they use fancy equipment that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars, the ultimate goal is to be able to take readings in a doctor's office or at home," he says.
Welcome to the world of health-related research at Cal Poly Pomona, where teacher-scholars guide students through extraordinary hands-on learning experiences. Their to-do list is daunting but exhilarating：disabling harmful bacteria, using stem cells to study side effects of drugs, simplifying the management of diabetes, understanding the causes of epilepsy. One experiment at a time, they add to the knowledge base of the academic community, never overstate their findings and are always excited by the possibilities. This article is part of a series on health-related research at Cal Poly Pomona.
Joint Research into Nicotine and Diabetes Finds Crucial Connection
September 6, 2011
Medical researchers have long known that diabetics who smoke are compounding their health risks and very possibly shortening their lives. What had remained a mystery was the specific culprit that lurked in a pack of cigarettes.
Two teacher-scholars at Cal Poly Pomona appear to have found the answer：nicotine. The addictive chemical is widely considered the leading suspect, but scientific progress rests on research, the kind that Sean Liu and John Chan meticulously perform in the lab they share on campus. Though they caution that their results are preliminary, it appears they have opened a new window to the way doctors and patients assess diabetes risks among smokers.
Liu, an associate professor of chemistry, is an expert in A1C, more commonly known as glycated hemoglobin.（A higher blood sugar level is typically associated with a higher A1C level.）Chan, a professor of biology, studies nicotine. With offices just down the hall from each other, they frequently talk shop, but it took a casual conversation over lunch in the Campus Center Marketplace to forge a research partnership.
We talked about the possibility that nicotine could affect A1C levels, “Liu says. Afterward, we went to the [scientific] literature and couldn’t find anything. That¿swhen we decided to collaborate.”
Looking back, Chan says with a smile, had he and Liu not grabbed a bite to eat that afternoon two years ago, “this wouldn’t have happened.”
This has taken place over many months in a nondescript laboratory on the third floor of the biotechnology building. In layman’s terms, their research involves meticulously following a basic recipe, altering the amount of one ingredient and then assessing the results.
We put human blood cells in a solution to release the hemoglobin and then we added metabolized blood sugar：glucose-6-phosphate, Liu says. We added various amounts of nicotine and checked the A1C level.
The process initially sounds complex, but Chan and Liu explain it in a way that even a scientifically challenged observer can grasp. First, they create a gel that acts as a magnet for A1C. They put the gel in a test tube（called a column tube）and add a solution containing released hemoglobin from human blood cells exposed to glucose-6-phosphate and various amounts of nicotine. Through a process called elution, the A1C can be collected. The A1C is then transferred to a small, light-transparent container called a cuvette. The cuvette is placed in a spectrophotometer, whose readings show how much the A1C fluctuates.
The implications could be significant. People who smoke but have no familial disposition to diabetes might raise their risks through their consumption of nicotine. Those who decide to quit smoking by weaning themselves with nicotine patches could still experience greater A1C levels. Long-term use of patches, then, might continue to expose the user to a higher risk of diabetes.
After hearing about the research, doctors were initially surprised but they saw that it made sense, Liu says. In the long term, this research could influence how diligently doctors screen their diabetic patients.
Liu and Chan both caution that they are working with preliminary results in a laboratory setting and that more concrete data beyond their initial findings are required. The next step, Chan says, is to examine whether similar observations can be reproduced in studies on animals. Once confirmed, the mechanism of how nicotine induces more A1C in the presence of glucose at a chemical and molecular level can be examined.
We need to do more study, Chan says.
The research was supported with residual funds from previous grants, a grant from the Faculty Center for Professional Development and assistance from the College of Science. Chan and Liu say they need outside support to complete and publish their findings.
We don’t need a lot, Chan says. We believe this could be significant.
