INTRODUCTION: Severe aortic stenosis (AS) caused by degenerative calcification is the most frequent acquired valvular heart disease worldwide and mortality rates are considerably high. Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) is a well-established method for valve replacement in high risk patients with AS. However, there is a lack of reliable predictors for patients undergoing TAVI since commonly used scores were developed for surgical populations. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 208 patients subjected to TAVI were included in this study...

CONTEXT: Acid-labile subunit (ALS) deficiency due to homozygous inactivation of the ALS gene (IGFALS) is associated with moderate short stature, and in few cases pubertal delay. The clinical expression of heterozygosity is unknown. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the clinical, laboratory, and radiological features of homozygous and heterozygous carriers of a novel mutation in the ALS gene in comparison with non-carriers. SUBJECTS: Three short Kurdish brothers and their relatives...

The growth hormone/insulin-like growth factor (IGF) system plays a critical endocrine role controlling nutrient metabolism in dairy cattle. In liver, growth hormone receptor (GHR) and IGF-1 are dynamically regulated by lactation and energy balance. Less is known about the regulation of GHR, IGF-1, and IGF-binding protein mRNA in reproductive tissues (uterus, ovarian follicle, and corpus luteum). The objective was to determine expression patterns for GHR, IGF-1, and IGF-binding protein (IGFBP)-2 mRNA in the liver, uterus, dominant follicle, and corpus luteum in Holstein cows (n = 21) sampled at 3 times during early lactation...

To begin the process of identification and charactization of rat ovarian insulin-like growth factor binding proteins, we have undertaken to explore the ovarian expression, cellular localization, and hormonal regulation of the insulin-like growth factor binding protein-2 (IGFBP-2) gene for which an antigonadotropic potential has recently been demonstrated. To this end, a solution hybridization/RNase protection assay was employed wherein total ovarian RNA (20 micrograms) from immature (21-23 days old) female rats was hybridized with a [32P]-labeled IGFBP-2 riboprobe...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase
