Minimal invasive technique for gene delivery in porcine liver lobe segment
Introduction: The feasibility and outcome of large volume injection of gene solution in a segment of a liver lobe, without backflow, were studied in a porcine model, using a custom-designed balloon catheter. Method: Eight ...
Effects of grape extracts on the in vitro activity of enzymes involved in oxidative stress regulation
Background/Aim: A number of in vitro and in vivo studies have investigated the potential preventive activity of grape extracts against different diseases, and have mostly focused on their antioxidant properties. The present ...
Hyaluronic acid levels are increased in complicated parapneumonic pleural effusions
Background and Aim. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a component of extracellular matrix and may play a role in the pleural inflammation which is implicated in parapneumonic effusions.The aim of the current study was to investigate ...
Training in ureteroscopy: A critical appraisal of the literature
The aim of the present review was to study factors influencing training and the maintenance of skills in performing ureteroscopy (URS). We searched on the following keywords in the Medline, Embase and Cochrane databases: ...
Effects of Guaiazulene on In Vitro Bovine Embryo Production and on mRNA Transcripts Related to Embryo Quality
Contents: Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are between the major contributors for the reduced rate of in vitro bovine embryo production. It is believed that they can cause abnormal meiosis of oocytes, developmental arrest or ...
The labdane diterpene sclareol (labd-14-ene-8, 13-diol) induces apoptosis in human tumor cell lines and suppression of tumor growth in vivo via a p53-independent mechanism of action
The labdane diterpene sclareol has demonstrated significant cytotoxicity against human tumor cell lines and human colon cancer xenografts. Therefore, there is need to elucidate the mode of action of this compound as very ...
Hypoxia upregulates the expression of the O-linked N-acetylglucosamine containing epitope H in human ependymal cells
Epitope H contains an O-linked N-acetylglucosamine (O-GlcNAc) residue in a specific conformation and/or environment recognized by mouse IgM monoclonal antibody H (mabH). Epitope H is present in several types of cells and ...

Complex distal 10q rearrangement in a girl with mild intellectual disability: Follow up of the patient and review of the literature of non-acrocentric satellited chromosomes
We report on an intellectually disabled girl with a de novo satellited chromosome 10 (10qs) and performed a review of the literature of the non-acrocentric satellited chromosomes (NASC). Satellites and stalks normally occur ...
Association of anti-CCP positivity and carriage of TNFRII susceptibility variant with anti-TNF-α response in rheumatoid arthritis
Objective: To investigate the possible influence of tumour necrosis factoralpha (TNF), TNF receptor I (TNFRI) and TNF receptor II (TNFRII) gene polymorphisms on anti-TNF treatment responsiveness, stratified by autoantibody ...
