    Dardiotis, E.; Paterakis, K.; Tsivgoulis, G.; Tsintou, M.; Hadjigeorgiou, G. F.; Dardioti, M.; Grigoriadis, S.; Simeonidou, C.; Komnos, A.; Kapsalaki, E.; Fountas, K.; Hadjigeorgiou, G. M. (2014)
    Accumulating evidence suggests that the extent of brain injury and the clinical outcome after traumatic brain injury (TBI) are modulated, to some degree, by genetic variants. Aquaporin-4 (AQP4) is the predominant water ...
  • Insulin Alters the Permeability of Sheep Pleura 

    Kouritas, V. K.; Hatzoglou, C.; Ioannou, M.; Gourgoulianis, K. I.; Molyvdas, P. A. (2010)
    Aim: Insulin promotes ion transportation across epithelia, mainly kidneys, leading to water and electrolyte abnormalities, possibly causing 'insulin oedema syndrome', which rarely presents as pleural effusion. Direct ...
  • Insulin-Induced Electrophysiology Changes in Human Pleura Are Mediated via Its Receptor 

    Kouritas, V. K.; Ioannou, M.; Foroulis, C. N.; Desimonas, N.; Evaggelopoulos, K.; Gourgoulianis, K. I.; Molyvdas, P. A.; Hatzoglou, C. (2010)
    Background. Insulin directly changes the sheep pleural electrophysiology. The aim of this study was to investigate whether insulin induces similar effects in human pleura, to clarify insulin receptor's involvement, and to ...
  • Venous thromboembolism during air travel: does the existing evidence raise legal implications? 

    Mavroforou, A.; Michalodimitrakis, E.; Koutsias, S.; Mavrophoros, D.; Giannoukas, A. D. (2009)
    Venous thromboembolism associated with prolonged sitting during air travel has been reported in the medical literature. The aim of this article was to review whether the existing evidence can raise ethical concerns and ...
