    Scientific reports 6:28724 (2016) PMID 27346699 PMCID PMC4921860

    Circulating endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) play a role in the regeneration of damaged brain tissue. However, the relationship between circulating EPC levels and functional recovery in intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) has not yet been tested. Therefore, our aim was to study the influence of ci...
  5. Potential protective role of endogenous glutamate-oxaloacetate transaminase against glutamate excitotoxicity in fetal hypoxic-ischaemic asphyxia.

    Developmental Medicine and Child Neurology 58(1):57 (2016) PMID 26205194

    Fetal blood contains higher concentrations of glutamate-oxaloacetate transaminase (GOT; a blood enzyme able to metabolize glutamate) than maternal blood. The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between GOT and glutamate levels in arterial blood samples from umbilical cord in cont...

  12. Monthly ibandronate versus weekly risedronate treatment for low bone mineral density in stable renal transplant patients.

    Nuclear Medicine Communications 36(8):815 (2015) PMID 25856225

    Bisphosphonates may aid in treating and preventing bone loss promoted by chronic immunosuppressive treatment and secondary hyperparathyroidism in renal transplant (RT) patients. However, the effectiveness of bisphosphonates is compromised by poor patient compliance. The objective of the study wa...
  13. Blood glutamate grabbing does not reduce the hematoma in an intracerebral hemorrhage model but it is a safe excitotoxic treatment modality.

    Journal of Cerebral Blood Flow and Metabolism 35(7):1206 (2015) PMID 25735920 PMCID PMC4640266

    Recent studies have shown that blood glutamate grabbing is an effective strategy to reduce the excitotoxic effect of extracellular glutamate released during ischemic brain injury. The purpose of the study was to investigate the effect of two of the most efficient blood glutamate grabbers (oxaloa...
  14. Rapid calcitriol increase and persistent calcidiol insufficiency in the first 6 months after kidney transplantation.

    Nuclear Medicine Communications 36(5):489 (2015) PMID 25603274

    Vitamin D deficiency or insufficiency is prevalent in kidney transplant recipients. Little is known about post-transplantation changes in vitamin D forms, which are essential for bone health and other health outcomes. The aim was to measure the levels of calcidiol and calcitriol during the first...
