Association of genetic variation in telomere-related SNP and telomerase with ventricular arrhythmias in ischemic cardiomyopathy.
BACKGROUND: Telomeres are known to provide genomic stability and telomere length has been associated with cardiovascular diseases. Moreover, a higher telomerase activity has been shown to be associated with ventricular ...
Is BMI alone a sufficient outcome to evaluate interventions for child obesity?
BACKGROUND: BMI is often used to evaluate the effectiveness of childhood obesity interventions, but such interventions may have additional benefits independent of effects on adiposity. We investigated whether benefits to ...
Troponin T monitoring to detect myocardial injury after noncardiac surgery: a cost-consequence analysis.
BACKGROUND: Myocardial injury after noncardiac surgery (MINS) is a mostly asymptomatic condition that is strongly associated with 30-day mortality; however, it remains mostly undetected without systematic troponin T ...
The need for accredited training in gynaecological oncology: a report from the European Network of Young Gynaecological Oncologists (ENYGO).
BACKGROUND: Primary data on training experiences of European gynaecological oncology trainees are lacking. This study aims to evaluate trainee profile, satisfaction and factors affecting the training experience in ...
Counteractive effects of antenatal glucocorticoid treatment on D1 receptor modulation of spatial working memory.
RATIONALE: Antenatal exposure to the glucocorticoid dexamethasone dramatically increases the number of mesencephalic dopaminergic neurons in rat offspring. However, the consequences of this expansion in midbrain dopamine ...
Predictive value of S100-B and copeptin for outcomes following seizure: the BISTRO International Cohort Study.
OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the performance of S100-B protein and copeptin, in addition to clinical variables, in predicting outcomes of patients attending the emergency department (ED) following a seizure. METHODS: We prospectively ...
The role of immediate provisional restorations on implants with a hydrophilic surface: A randomised, single-blind controlled clinical trial.
OBJECTIVES: To compare the radiographic bone changes, clinical parameters and aesthetic outcomes of immediately provisionalised and conventionally restored implants at 12- and 24-months post-implant placement. MATERIAL AND ...
The effect of experimental diabetes and glycaemic control on guided bone regeneration: histology and gene expression analyses.
OBJECTIVES: To investigate the effect of experimental diabetes and metabolic control on intramembranous bone healing following guided bone regeneration (GBR). MATERIAL AND METHODS: Ninety-three Wistar rats were allocated ...
Maxillary Sinus Floor Augmentation Using an Equine-Derived Graft Material: Preliminary Results in 17 Patients.
Objective: Sinus floor elevation with lateral approach is probably the most frequently performed reconstructive procedure to rehabilitate posterior maxilla when a bone deficiency is present. Different graft materials have ...
