Off-line sample prefractionations applied prior to biomarker discovery proteomics are options to enable more protein identifications and detect low-abundance proteins. This work compared five commercial methods efficiency to raw serum analysis using label-free proteomics. The variability of the protein quantities determined for each process was similar to the unprefractionated serum. A 49% increase in protein identifications and 12.2% of reliable quantification were obtained. A 61 times lower limit of protein quantitation was reached compared to protein concentrations observed in raw serum. The concentrations of detected proteins were confronted to estimated reference values. [less ▲]

Introduction and objectives: Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second most frequent cancer in women and the third in men. Identification of the mechanisms of progression in these early CRC stages is important to develop new diagnostic and therapeutic tools. Formalin-Fixed Paraffin-Embedded (FFPE) specimens are materials that enable proteomic clinical research. Hence our aim was to address the comparison of FFPE samples from early CRC stages patients using shotgun proteomic analysis. Methods: We performed a retrospective study on 36 CRC tissue samples (pT1N0M0, n=16 and pT2N0M0, n=20) compared together and with 40 control tissue samples (20 patients with diverticulitis, using paired inflamed (DI) and healthy tissue (DH)). Each tissue slice was macrodissected to enrich in epithelial cells. We used FFPE-FASP kit (Expedeon) for sample preparation and protein digests were analyzed using 2D-nanoAquity UPLC separation online with Q-Tof Synapt HDMSTM G2 using ion mobility as additional separation. We performed protein identification and differential analysis using Progenesis QI for proteomics (Nonlinear Dynamics). Results and discussion: We selected 149 proteins differentially distributed between T1 and T2 CRC stages which were not significantly different between CRC and DH or DI. Only 30 proteins were significantly more abundant in T1 versus T2 and 119 were distributed inversely, with a minimum fold ratio of 2. Among those, ATP synthase subunit beta, Aspartate-tRNA ligase, Haptoglobin and Kininogen were identified. . Moreover, we validated Kininogen and 3 others proteins with a significant differential distribution between pT1N0M0 and pT2N0M0 stages by immunohistochemistry. Conclusion: This FFPE retrospective study comparing T1 and T2 CRC highlighted proteins already previously identified as potential CRC biomarkers. These proteins may reflect important early changes in cancer development and may help understanding early tumor progression. [less ▲]

Introduction and objectives: In Crohn's disease (CD), there is a discrepancy between clinical activity of the disease (symptoms) and intestinal healing. However absence of tissue healing is associated with the risk of relapse and tissue damage progression. Endoscopy is costly and invasive. Hence biomarkers correlating with intestinal healing could improve disease management and potentially decrease the number of endoscopy when patients are in clinical remission. Aim: We aimed to identify potential biomarkers associated to CD mucosal healing and relapse after IFX withdrawals by a shotgun label-free proteomic study. Methods: We used the STORI1 clinical trial cohort (n=103) aiming at identifying markers associated to relapse prediction after Infliximab treatment withdrawals. We used serum samples of patients in clinical remission (at base line). We grouped these according to the degree of intestinal healing seen at endoscopy or according to relapse occurrence during the 28 month follow-up and composed pooled samples. We performed depletion of the 20 most abundant plasma proteins on each serum pools and ran a proteomic label-free differential analysis using 2D-nanoUPLC-MSE HDMS Synapt G2 for data acquisition. We performed different statistical analysis. Moreover, a Gene Ontology annotation was also performed for the potential biomarkers highlighted. Results and Discussion: We identified analysing these depleted serum pools 430 different proteins and 188 proteins common to all samples. Among these, 40 were found with a significant differential abundance in the groups compared. We selected some among the most significant one (ratio>1.3) or being by nature consistent with the context of this study (sample origin and clinical question addressed). For example, the C-reactive protein (CRP) was found with a significant Ratio of 2 between Relapsers and Non Relapsers. The other potential biomarkers associated to mucosal healing or to relapse prediction, were selected for further validation by Western Blot analysis (WB), routine laboratory tests and also by a Mass Spectrometry based technology: multiplexed selected reaction monitoring (SRM). Multiplexed SRM will enable quantitative analysis of these candidates in each individual patient as well as WB tests. Conclusions: This research strategy and the validation results on potential biomarkers associated to mucosal healing or relapse after treatment cessation in this cohort of CD patients, as well as tests done on other CD patients, might provide new opportunities for patient follow-up test developments. The next step is to perform SRM validation on the STORI cohort and design signatures using these potential biomarkers SRM data for prognosis power evaluation. 1.

OBJECTIVE: Glucocorticoids are powerful anti-inflammatory compounds that also induce the expression of leptin and leptin receptor (Ob-R) in synovial fibroblasts through TGF-betasignalling and Smad1/5 phosphorylation. Compound A (CpdA), a selective glucocorticoid receptor agonist, reduces inflammation in murine arthritis models and does not induce diabetes or osteoporosis, thus offering an improved risk:benefit ratio in comparison with glucocorticoids. Due to the detrimental role of leptin in OA pathogenesis, we sought to determine whether CpdA also induced leptin and Ob-R protein expression as observed with prednisolone. METHODS: Human synovial fibroblasts and chondrocytes were isolated from the synovium and cartilage of OA patients after joint surgery. The cells were treated with prednisolone, TGF-beta1, TNF-alpha and/or CpdA. Levels of leptin, IL-6, IL-8, MMP-1 and MMP-3 were measured by ELISA and expression levels of Ob-R phospho-Smad1/5, phospho-Smad2, alpha-tubulin and glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase were analysed by western blotting. RESULTS: CpdA, unlike prednisolone, did not induce leptin secretion or Ob-R protein expression in OA synovial fibroblasts. Moreover, CpdA decreased endogenous Ob-R expression and down-regulated prednisolone-induced leptin secretion and Ob-R expression. Mechanistically, CpdA, unlike prednisolone, did not induce Smad1/5 phosphorylation. CpdA, similarly to prednisolone, down-regulated endogenous and TNF-alpha-induced IL-6, IL-8, MMP-1 and MMP-3 protein secretion. The dissociative effect of CpdA was confirmed using chondrocytes with no induction of leptin secretion, but with a significant decrease in IL-6, IL-8, MMP-1 and MMP-3 protein secretion. CONCLUSION: CpdA, unlike prednisolone, did not induce leptin or Ob-R in human OA synovial fibroblasts, thereby demonstrating an improved risk:benefit ratio. [less ▲]

Objective: The aetiology of OA is not fully understood although several adipokines such as leptin are known mediators of disease progression. Since leptin levels were increased in synovial fluid compared to serum in OA patients, it was suggested that joint cells themselves could produce leptin. However, exact mechanisms underlying leptin production by chondrocytes are poorly understood. Nevertheless, prednisolone, although displaying powerful anti-inflammatory properties has been recently reported to be potent stimulator of leptin and its receptor in OA synovial fibroblasts. Therefore, we investigated, in vitro, spontaneous and prednisolone-induced leptin production in OA chondrocytes, focusing on transforming growth factor-b (TGFb) and Wnt/b-catenin pathways. Design: We used an in vitro dedifferentiation model, comparing human freshly isolated hip OA chondrocytes cultivated in monolayer during 1 day (type II, COL2A1 þ; type X, COL10A1 þ and type I collagen, COL1A1 ") or 14 days (COL2A1 "; COL10A1 " and COL1A1þ). Results: Leptin expression was not detected in day1 OA chondrocytes whereas day14 OA chondrocytes produced leptin, significantly increased with prednisolone. Activin receptor-like kinase 1 (ALK1)/ALK5 ratio was shifted during dedifferentiation, from high ALK5 and phospho (p)-Smad2 expression at day1 to high ALK1, endoglin and p-Smad1/5 expression at day14. Moreover, inactive glycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK3) and active b-catenin were only found in dedifferentiated OA chondrocytes. Smad1 and b-catenin but not endoglin stable lentiviral silencing led to a significant decrease in leptin production by dedifferentiated OA chondrocytes. Conclusions: Only dedifferentiated OA chondrocytes produced leptin. Prednisolone markedly enhanced leptin production, which involved Smad1 and b-catenin activation [less ▲]

OBJECTIVE: This work reports on musculoskeletal uptake of (18)F-FPRGD2, targeting the integrin alphavbeta3, in patients who had undergone (18)F-FPRGD2 positron emission tomography combined with computed tomography (PET/CT) for oncologic purposes. METHODS: Whole-body (18)F-FPRGD2 PET/CT images of 62 cancer patients were retrospectively reviewed to detect foci of musculoskeletal (18)F-FPRGD2 uptake. For 37 patients, a FDG PET/CT performed in clinical settings was available. In each joint with an abnormal uptake, the maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) was estimated. RESULTS: A total of 260 musculoskeletal foci of (18)F-FPRGD2 uptake were detected. Most common sites of uptake were joints and discs (n = 160; 61.5 %), entheses (osteotendinous and osteoligamentous junctions; n = 55; 21.2 %) and recent fractures (n = 18; 6.9 %). In addition, 27 (10.4 %) miscellaneous foci were detected. Out of the 146 lesions for which a FDG PET was available, 63 % showed both (18)F-FPRGD2 and FDG uptake, 33.6 % did not show FDG avidity and 3.4 % showed only FDG uptake. The uptake intensity of the 92 lesions positive with (18)F-FPRGD2 and FDG was similar with both radiopharmaceuticals, but the target-to-background (blood pool or muscle) ratios were significantly higher with (18)F-FPRGD2 than with FDG (p < 0.0001). CONCLUSION: The (18)F-FPRGD2 uptake in joints, spine degenerative diseases and tendons was highly prevalent in our population. Up to one-third of (18)F-FPRGD2 foci showed no FDG uptake suggesting that (18)F-FPRGD2 signal may not be related to inflammatory angiogenesis only. [less ▲]

Introduction and objectives: In Crohn's disease (CD), there is a discrepancy between clinical activity of the disease (symptoms) and intestinal healing. However absence of tissue healing is associated with the risk of relapse and tissue damage progression. Endoscopy is costly and invasive. Hence biomarkers correlating with intestinal healing could improve disease management. We aimed to identify potential biomarkers associated to CD mucosal healing by a shotgun proteomics label free study. Methods: We used the STORI clinical trial cohort (n=103) aiming at identifying markers associated to relapse prediction after Infliximab treatment withdrawals. We used serum samples of patients in clinical remission, grouped according to the degree of intestinal healing seen at endoscopy. We performed depletion of the 20 most abundant plasma proteins on each serum pools and ran a proteomics label free differential analysis using 2D-nanoUPLC-MSE HDMS Synapt G1 for data acquisition and Protein Lynks Global Server vs 2.4 for data analysis (Waters, Corp., Milford, USA). Results and Discussion: We obtained potential biomarkers and designed a multiplexed -selected reaction monitoring (SRM) method for validation of these candidates in each individual patient. The method may also be tested in an independent set of IBD patients with and without mucosal healing. Conclusions: This research strategy and results of SRM validation of potential biomarkers associated to mucosal healing in this cohort of CD patients as well as the tests done on other CD patients, may provide new opportunities for CD follow-up tests development.

Acute graft-versus-host disease (aGVHD) remains a life-threatening complication of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), limiting its application. To optimize management of aGVHD and reduce therapy-related toxicity, early specific markers are needed. The main objective of this study was thus to uncover diagnostic biomarkers comparing plasma protein profiles of patients at the time of acute GVHD diagnosis and of patients undergoing HSCT without aGVHD. Additional analysis of samples taken 15 days before aGVHD diagnosis was also performed to evaluate the potential of the newly discovered biomarkers for early diagnosis. To extract a maximum of information from plasma samples, we used three complementary proteomic approaches, namely 2D-DIGE, SELDI-TOF-MS and 2D-LC-MSE. We identified and confirmed by means of a independent techniques, the differential expression of several proteins indicating significantly increased inflammation response and disturbance in the coagulation cascade. The variation of these proteins was already observed 15 days before GVHD diagnosis, suggesting the potential early detection of the disease before symptoms appearance. Finally, logistic regression analysis determines a composite biomarker panel comprising fibrinogen, fragment of fibrinogen beta chain, SAA, prothrombin fragments, apolipoprotein A1 and hepcidin that optimally discriminated patients with and without GVHD. The area under the receiver operating characteristic curve distinguishing these 2 groups was 0.95. [less ▲]

Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) specimens of patients are useful sources of materials for clinical research and have recently gained interest for use in the discovery of clinical proteomic biomarkers. However, the critical step in this field is the ability to obtain an efficient and repeatable extraction using the limited quantities of material available for research in hospital biobanks. This work describes the evaluation of the peptide/protein extraction using FFPE sections treated by the following two methods before shotgun proteomic analysis: a commercial solution (FFPE-FASP) (filter aided sample preparation) and an antigen retrieval-derived protocol (On Slice AR). Their efficiencies and repeatabilities are compared using data-independent differential quantitative label-free analysis. FFPE-FASP was shown to be globally better both qualitatively and quantitatively than On Slice AR. FFPE-FASP was tested on several samples, and differential analysis was used to compare the tissues of diverticulitis patients (healthy and inflammatory tissues). In this differential proteomic analysis using retrospective clinical FFPE material, FFPE-FASP was reproducible and provided a high number of confident protein identifications, highlighting potential protein biomarkers. BIOLOGICAL SIGNIFICANCE: In clinical proteomics, FFPE is an important resource for retrospective analysis and for the discovery of biomarkers. The challenge for FFPE shotgun proteomic analysis is preparation by an efficient and reproducible protocol, which includes protein extraction and digestion. In this study, we analyzed two different methods and evaluated their repeatabilities and efficiencies. We illustrated the reproducibility of the most efficient method, FFPE-FASP, by a pilot study on diverticulitis tissue and on FFPE samples amount accessible in hospital biobanks. These data showed that FFPE is suitable for use in clinical proteomics, especially when the FFPE-FASP method is combined with label-free shotgun proteomics as described in the workflow presented in this work.

We present the case report of a 28 year old male presenting with recurrent fever episodes and arthralgia. Based on the presence of an inflammatory syndrome, a hyper- ferritinemia, a salmon-pink rash and recurrent fever episodes, the diagnosis of an adult onset Still’s disease (AOSD) was made. A treatment with corticosteroids was started. During the following years, the corticosteroids could not be tapered. Eventually, a treatment with anakinra, an interleukin 1 (IL-1) receptor antagonist was started, allowing tapering of the corticosteroids. This case report supports the possible role of IL-1 in the pathogenesis of AOSD, possibly through the inflammasome. [less ▲]

PURPOSE: The aim of the study was to control the in vivo localisation of implanted cells in cell-based therapies. Labelling cells with (111)indium-oxine is one of the most interesting methods proposed. We evaluated this method in the setting of autologous osteoblast implantation in nonunion fractures. METHODS: An in vitro study of osteoblasts was conducted after (111)indium-oxine labelling. Radioactivity retention and viability, proliferation and the ability to produce alkaline phosphatase were evaluated in a seven-day culture. In vivo labelling of implanted osteoblastic cells was conducted during a therapeutic trial of atrophic nonunion fractures, with the leakage outside the nonunion site and local uptake evolution at four, 24 and 48 hour being studied. RESULTS: The mean labelling efficiency for osteoprogenitors was 78.8 +/- 4.6 %. The intracellular retention was 89.4 +/- 2.1 % at three hours and 67.3 +/- 4.7 % at 18 hours. The viability assessed at three hours was 93.7 +/- 0.6 %. After seven days of culture, morphology and alkaline phosphatase staining were similar for both labelled and unlabelled control cells, although the proliferation rate was decreased in the labelled cells. Some local intraosseous leakage was observed in four of 17 cases. All patients showed uptake at the injection site, with four having no other uptake. Four patients showed additional uptake in the bladder, liver and spleen, while 11 patients had additional uptake in the lungs in addition to the bladder, liver and spleen. The activity ratios (injection site/body) were 48 +/- 28 % at four hours, 40 +/- 25 % at 24 hours and 35 +/- 25 % at 48 hours. After correcting for decay, the activity within the injection site was 82 +/- 15 % at 24 hours and 69 +/- 11 % at 48 hours compared with the activity measured at four hours. No relationship was found between uptake and radiological bone repair. CONCLUSIONS: The (111)indium-oxine labelling appears to be a good method for monitoring the behaviour of the osteoblastic cells after their implantation in atrophic nonunion fractures. [less ▲]
