  • Association of the leptin gene with knee osteoarthritis susceptibility in a Han Chinese population: A case-control study 

    Qin, J.; Shi, D.; Dai, J.; Zhu, L.; Tsezou, A.; Jiang, Q. (2010)
    Previous studies have suggested that leptin works as a key regulator in the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis (OA), and genetic factors modulate OA. This study assessed the contribution of leptin gene (LEP) polymorphism(s) ...
  • Death from spontaneous coronary artery dissection in a healthy postmenopausal woman 

    Zagelidou, H.; Leodari, R.; Roupa, Z.; Maras, D.; Sapountzi-Krepia, D.; Terzis, A. (2004)
    Spontaneous dissection of the coronary arteries, in the absence of trauma, is an unusual but well-documented entity that occurs usually in middle-aged women. It is a rare cause of sudden death and myocardial infarction. ...
  • A genome-wide association study identifies an osteoarthritis susceptibility locus on chromosome 7q22 

    Kerkhof, H. J. M.; Lories, R. J.; Meulenbelt, I.; Jonsdottir, I.; Valdes, A.

    Objective: We studied the independent and joint effects of the genes encoding alpha-synuclein (SNCA) and microtubule-associated protein tau (MAPT) in Parkinson disease (PD) as part of a large meta-analysis of individual ...
  • A large-scale genetic association study to evaluate the contribution of Omi/HtrA2 (PARK13) to Parkinson's disease

K.; Toda, T.; Tomiyama, H.; Wirdefeldt, K.; Wszolek, Z.; Xiromerisiou, G.; Maraganore, D. M. (2011)
    High-profile studies have provided conflicting results regarding the involvement of the Omi/HtrA2 gene in Parkinson's disease (PD) susceptibility. Therefore, we performed a large-scale analysis of the association of common ...
  • Respiratory diseases and Helicobacter pylori infection: Is there a link? 

    Roussos, A.; Philippou, N.; Mantzaris, G. J.; Gourgoulianis, K. I. (2006)
