  1. Genetics of Alzheimer's disease.

    BioMed research international 2013:254954 (2013) PMID 23984328 PMCID PMC3741956

    We review the known genetics of early- and late-onset Alzheimer's disease....
  2. Aorta structural alterations in term neonates: the role of birth and maternal characteristics.

    BioMed research international 2013:459168 (2013) PMID 23984364 PMCID PMC3741912

    To evaluate the influence of selected maternal and neonatal characteristics on aorta walls in term, appropriately grown-for-gestational age newborns. Age, parity, previous abortions, weight, height, body mass index before and after delivery, smoking, and history of hypertension, of diabetes, of card...
  3. Development of bioadhesive chitosan superporous hydrogel composite particles based intestinal drug delivery system.

    BioMed research international 2013:563651 (2013) PMID 23984380 PMCID PMC3747347

    Bioadhesive superporous hydrogel composite (SPHC) particles were developed for an intestinal delivery of metoprolol succinate and characterized for density, porosity, swelling, morphology, and bioadhesion studies. Chitosan and HPMC were used as bioadhesive and release retardant polymers, respectivel...
  4. Antibodies against food antigens in patients with autistic spectrum disorders.

    BioMed research international 2013:729349 (2013) PMID 23984403 PMCID PMC3747333

    Immune system of some autistic patients could be abnormally triggered by gluten/casein assumption. The prevalence of antibodies to gliadin and milk proteins in autistic children with paired/impaired intestinal permeability and under dietary regimen either regular or restricted is reported. 162 ASDs...
  5. High intensity physical exercise and pain in the neck and upper limb among slaughterhouse workers: cross-sectional study.

    BioMed research international 2014:218546 (2014) PMID 24527440 PMCID PMC3910536

    We investigated the association between high intensity physical exercise and pain among 595 slaughterhouse workers in Denmark, Europe. Using logistic regression analyses, odds ratios for pain and work disability as a function of physical exercise, gender, age, BMI, smoking, and job position were est...
  6. The evidence for nerve repair in obstetric brachial plexus palsy revisited.

    BioMed research international 2014:434619 (2014) PMID 24551845 PMCID PMC3914347

    Strong scientific validation for nerve reconstructive surgery in infants with Obstetric Brachial Plexus Palsy is lacking, as no randomized trial comparing surgical reconstruction versus conservative treatment has been performed. A systematic review of the literature was performed to identify studies...
  7. Semiphysiological versus empirical modelling of the population pharmacokinetics of free and total cefazolin during pregnancy.

    BioMed research international 2014:897216 (2014) PMID 24672799 PMCID PMC3930089

    We therefore developed a semiphysiological modeling approach, which leveraged gestation-induced changes in creatinine clearance (CrCL) into a population PK model. This model was then compared to the conventional empirical covariate model. First, a base two-compartmental PK model with a linear protei...
  8. Ginseng is useful to enhance cardiac contractility in animals.

    BioMed research international 2014:723084 (2014) PMID 24689053 PMCID PMC3932289

    We are interested to investigate the role of PPARδ in ginseng-induced modification of cardiac contractility. The isolated hearts in Langendorff apparatus and hemodynamic analysis in catheterized rats were applied to measure the actions of ginseng ex vivo and in vivo. In normal rats, ginseng enhanced...
  9. The low chamber pancreatic cancer cells had stem-like characteristics in modified transwell system: is it a novel method to identify and enr...

    BioMed research international 2014:760303 (2014) PMID 24689055 PMCID PMC3934619

    We tried to use modified transwell system to isolate and enrich CSCs from human pancreatic cancer cell lines (Panc-1). Our results clearly showed that the lower chamber cells in modified transwell system were easily forming spheres; furthermore, these spheres expressed high levels of stem cell marke...
  10. Renal overexpression of atrial natriuretic peptide and hypoxia inducible factor-1α as adaptive response to a high salt diet.

    BioMed research international 2014:936978 (2014) PMID 24689065 PMCID PMC3943195

    We tested the hypothesis that renal expression of ANP and HIF-1α is involved in a mechanism responding to the oxidative stress produced in the kidneys of rats chronically fed a high sodium diet. Sprague-Dawley rats were fed with a normal salt (0.4% NaCl) (NS) or a high salt (8% NaCl) (HS) diet for 3...
