  • Bone mineral density and genetic markers involved in three connected pathways (focal adhesion, actin cytoskeleton regulation and cell cycle): The CUMAGAS-BMD information system 

    Zintzaras, E.; Doxani, C.; Ziogas, D. C.; Mprotsis, T.; Rodopoulou, P.; Karachalios, T. (2011)
    The focal adhesion, the actin cytoskeleton and cell-cycle are connected pathways and their genes are implicated in the pathogenesis of low BMD. Data from 211 studies that investigated the association between BMD and gene ...
  • Complications of chronic peritoneal dialysis: The role of leptin 

    Apostolidou, E.; Xatzoglou, C. (2011)
    The use of peritoneal dialysis for patients with end stage renal disease is not widespread, mainly because of the complications of repeated peritoneal dialysis, such as peritonitis and peritoneal fibrosis. Leptin is a 16 ...
  • Cytokines and pathological sleep 

    Kapsimalis, F.; Basta, M.; Varouchakis, G.; Gourgoulianis, K.; Vgontzas, A.; Kryger, M. (2008)
    Cytokines are proteins produced by leukocytes and other cells that function as intercellular mediators acting on several target tissues, resulting in multiple biologic actions. Over the last decade, medical research has ...
  • Effect of single dose irradiation on human glioblastoma spheroids in vitro 

    Fehlauer, F.; Stalpers, L. J. A.; Panayiotides, J.; Kaaijk, P.; González Gonźalez, D.; Leenstra, S.; Van Der Valk, P.; Sminia, P. (2004)
    Investigation of the predictive value of a radiosurgery-relevant treatment of glioblastoma spheroids. Organotypic multicellular spheroids were cultured and irradiated (20 Gy). Morphology, apoptosis and immunohistochemical ...
  • T-cells and B-cells in systemic sclerosis 

    Sakkas, L. I.; Platsoucas, C. D. (2010)
    Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is characterized by activation of fibroblasts with extensive deposition of collagen, by small vessel vasculopathy with fibrointimal proliferation, and activation of the immune system, with hyper-γ- ...
  • Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in pleural effusions 

    Kiropoulos, T. S.; Daniil, Z.; Gourgoulianis, K. I.; Zakynthinos, E. (2007)
    Pleural effusion is a common clinical problem in everyday clinical practice. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a 34-45 kDa homodimeric glycoprotein, which is a potent mediator of angiogenesis and vascular ...
