Permeability of the arachnoid and pia mater. The role of ion channels in the leptomeningeal physiology
Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to study the ionic permeability of the leptomeninges related to the effect of ouabain (sodium-potassium-ATPase inhibitor) and amiloride (epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) inhibitor) on ...
A dedicated surveillance network for congenital toxoplasmosis in Greece, 2006-2009: Assessment of the results
Background: Toxoplasmosis is caused by infection with the protozoan parasite Toxoplasma gondii. Acute infections in pregnant women may be transmitted to the fetus and cause severe illness. The purpose of this study was to ...
Early primary biliary cirrhosis: A new association with erythema nodosum of unknown origin
Primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) is associated with immune-mediated dermatologic disorders. The association of PBC with erythema nodosum (EN) seems rare. We report two females (42 and 44 years old) with low-grade fever, ...
The protective effect of LRRK2 p.R1398H on risk of Parkinson's disease is independent of MAPT and SNCA variants
The best validated susceptibility variants for Parkinson's disease are located in the α-synuclein (SNCA) and microtubule-associated protein tau (MAPT) genes. Recently, a protective p.N551K-R1398H-K1423K haplotype in the ...
HBeAg-positive hepatitis delta: Virological patterns and clinical long-term outcome
Background and Aims: The presence of the hepatitis B virus (HBV)-eAg in patients with hepatitis B is associated with higher HBV replication and with an increased risk to develop liver-related clinical endpoints defined as ...
3rd European Biobed Workshop
Essential oil content and composition, nutrient and mycorrhizal status of some aromatic and medicinal plants of Northern Greece
A field survey was conducted in three northern Greek mountain areas (Chortiatis, Ossa, and Pieria) to investigate the mycorrhizal and nutritional status, and the essential oil content and composition of common medicinal ...
Mutations conferring colistin resistance development in Acinetobacter baumannii clinical isolates
The colistin resistance mechanisms in Acinetobacter baumannii are largely unknown. In the present study, we investigated the characteristics and the mechanisms of colistin resistance in two genetically indistinguishable ...
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 ...
A short survey on genetic sequences, chou's pseudo amino acid composition and its combination with fuzzy set theory
The study of genetic sequences is of great importance in biology and medicine. Sequence analysis and taxonomy are two major fields of application of bioinformatics. In this survey, we present results concerning genetic ...
