Interrelatedness between C-reactive protein and oxidized low-density lipoprotein
(Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine, 2015)
C-reactive protein (CRP) is a marker of inflammation. Atherosclerosis is now recognized as inflammatory disease, and it seems that CRP directly contributes to atherogenesis. Oxidation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) ...
Cohesion and the aneuploid phenotype in Alzheimers disease: A tale of genome instability
(Neuroscience and Biobehavioral Reviews, 2015)
Neurons are postmitotic cells that are in permanent cell cycle arrest. However, components of the cell cycle machinery that are expressed in Alzheimers disease (AD) neurons are showing features of a cycling cell and those ...
On the use of small and cheaper sensors and devices for indicative citizen-based monitoring of respirable particulate matter
(Environmental Pollution, 2015)
Respirable particulate matter present in outdoor and indoor environments is a health hazard. The particle concentrations can quickly change, with steep gradients on short temporal and spatial scales, and their chemical ...
Role of nonlinear localized Ca2+ pulses along microtubules in tuning the mechano-sensitivity of hair cells
(Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology, 2015)
This paper aims to provide an overview of the polyelectrolyte model and the current understanding of the creation and propagation of localized pulses of positive ions flowing along cellular microtubules. In that context, ...
Review of Synthesis and Antioxidant Potential of Fullerenol Nanoparticles
(Journal of Nanomaterials, 2015)
This review describes the chemical synthesis of polar polyhydroxylated fullerene C-60 derivatives, fullerenols C-60(OH)(n), 2 LT = n LT = 44, C-60 HzOx(OH)(y), and polyanion fullerenols C-60(OH)(15)(ONa)(9), ranging from ...
Applications of Anti/Prooxidant Fullerenes in Nanomedicine along with Fullerenes Influence on the Immune System
(Journal of Nanomaterials, 2015)
Fullerenes are molecules that, due to their unique structure, have very specific chemical properties which offer them very wide array of applications in nanomedicine. The most prominent are protection from radiation-induced ...
Anesthetics and Cerebral Protection in Patients Undergoing Carotid Endarterectomy
(Journal of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesia, 2015)
High-Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein and Statin Initiation
The assessment of cardiovascular risk and treatment of cardiovascular diseases are major public health issues worldwide. Inflammation is now recognized as a key regulatory process that links multiple risk factors for ...
Effects of altered hepatic lipid metabolism on regulation of hepatic iNOS
(Clinical Lipidology, 2015)
An altered hepatic lipid metabolism involves multifactorial pathologies such as hepatic inflammation, insulin resistance and oxidative stress. Immunity has an essential role in the regulation of glucose and lipid metabolism ...
Track structure modeling in liquid water: A review of the Geant4-DNA very low energy extension of the Geant4 Monte Carlo simulation toolkit
(Physica Medica -European Journal of Medical Physics, 2015)
Understanding the fundamental mechanisms involved in the induction of biological damage by ionizing radiation remains a major challenge of todays radiobiology research. The Monte Carlo simulation of physical, physicochemical ...
