  • Biomarkers in the exhaled breath condensate of healthy adults: Mapping the path towards reference values 

    Koutsokera, A.; Loukides, S.; Gourgoulianis, K. I.; Kostikas, K. (2008)
    The need for non-invasive assessment of airway inflammation is imperative, since inflammatory airway diseases, such as asthma and COPD, are characterized by variation in their clinical presentation throughout their course. ...
  • Melatonin secretion is impaired in women with preeclampsia and an abnormal circadian blood pressure rhythm 

    Bouchlariotou, S.; Liakopoulos, V.; Giannopoulou, M.; Arampatzis, S.; Eleftheriadis, T.; Mertens, P. R.; Zintzaras, E.; Messinis, I. E.; Stefanidis, I. (2014)
    Non-dipping circadian blood pressure (BP) is a common finding in preeclampsia, accompanied by adverse outcomes. Melatonin plays pivotal role in biological circadian rhythms. This study investigated the relationship between ...
  • Nocturnal change of circulating intercellular adhesion molecule 1 levels in children with snoring 

    Kaditis, A. G.; Alexopoulos, E. I.; Kalampouka, E.; Hatzi, F.; Karadonta, I.; Kyropoulos, T.; Kaditis, D. G.; Gourgoulianis, K.; Syrogiannopoulos, G. A. (2007)
    Hypoxia promotes adherence of leukocytes to endothelial cells by inducing expression of adhesion molecules like intercellular adhesion molecule 1 (ICAM-1). Increased serum levels of circulating ICAM-1 (cICAM-1) have been ...
  • Nocturnal hypertension is associated with an exacerbation of the endothelial damage in preeclampsia 

    Bouchlariotou, S.; Liakopoulos, V.; Dovas, S.; Giannopoulou, M.; Kiropoulos, T.; Zarogiannis, S.; Gatselos, G.; Zachopoulos, T.; Kyriakou, D. S.; Kallitsaris, A.; Messinis, I.; Stefanidis, I. (2008)
    Background: Non-dipping pattern of circadian blood pressure in preeclampsia is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. The pathogenetic mechanisms of this relationship are still unclear. We investigated ...
  • Recording lifetime behavior and movement in an invertebrate model 

    Zou, S.; Liedo, P.; Altamirano-Robles, L.; Cruz-Enriquez, J.; Morice, A.; Ingram, D. K.; Kaub, K.; Papadopoulos, N.; Carey, J. R. (2011)
    Characterization of lifetime behavioral changes is essential for understanding aging and aging-related diseases. However, such studies are scarce partly due to the lack of efficient tools. Here we describe and provide proof ...
