Association of metabolic syndrome with the risk of developing liver disease in chronic hepatitis B patients

Metabolic syndrome is a constellation of abnormal glucose and lipid metabolic parameters that increase ones risk of developing cardiovascular diseases. Metabolic profiles have been linked to progression of varying stages of liver disease in chronic hepatitis B infection. The main objective of this prospective cross sectional study was to establish a link between metabolic syndrome indicators and markers of progression of...

Changes in Lipid Class and Fatty Acid Composition during the Development of African pear (Dacryodes edulis) fruit pulp

The pulp of the African pear (D.edulis) fruits were investigated for its oil compositions, major lipid classes and constituents fatty acids from 4 weeks after anthesis (WAA) to fruit maturation. The oil was extracted with n-hexane using soxhlet extractor and characterised by gas chromatography. Fatty acid profile showed a saturated acid content of between 19.5-36.5% and unsaturated fatty acid content of 63.5-80.5%....

New insight on premature atherosclerosis in Egyptian children with β-thalassemia major

beta-Thalassemia major (β-TM) in children is associated with an increase in the risk of premature cardiovascular complications caused by accelerated atherosclerosis which significantly contributes to morbidity and mortality. The molecular mechanisms underlying β-TM associated atherosclerosis and its relation to biochemical risk factors still remain obscure. We aimed to investigate the association between SIRT1 single...

Evaluation of the effect of vitamin C on caspase 9 and oxidative stress in rheumatoid arthritis patients

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic and an autoimmune disease of the joints and is widely distributed worldwide. It is characterized by alterations of the antioxidant defense system and increased free radical formation and pro-inflammatory cytokine. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of vitamin C supplementation on oxidative stress biomarkers and caspase 9 level in rheumatoid arthritis patients....

Increased levels of mannose-6-phosphate/insulin-like growth factor 2 receptor (M6P/IGF2-R) found in serum of patients with breast cancer

The multifunctional transmembrane mannose-6-phosphate/insulin-like growth factor-2 receptor (M6P/IGF2-R) has been proposed as a putative prognostic marker in breast cancer. Loss of heterozygosity (LOH) with mutations in the remaining allele have been described at the gene level. We previously reported significant decrease of M6P/IGF2-R at the protein level in cancer cells than normal peritumoral ducts of breast tumors...

This study focused on the integrity retention profile of hematological disorder indices on exposure to ethanol extract of Corchorus olitorus leaf. Seventy two apparently healthy rats were obtained from the animal farm of the Department of Zoology and Environmental Biology University of Nigeria, Nsukka and used for this study. These indices include assessed were Red blood cell distribution width standard deviation, Red...
