Moderate Hyponatremia Is Associated with Increased Risk of Mortality: Evidence from a Meta-Analysis
Background Hyponatremia is the most common electrolyte disorder in clinical practice, and evidence to date indicates that severe hyponatremia is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. TheExpand

Octreotide promotes apoptosis in human somatotroph tumor cells by activating somatostatin receptor type 2.
Somatostatin analogs currently used in the treatment of acromegaly and other neuroendocrine tumors inhibit hormone secretion and cell proliferation by binding to somatostatin receptor type (SST) 2Expand

Potential roles of osteopontin and alphaVbeta3 integrin in the development of coronary artery restenosis after angioplasty.
Angioplasty procedures are increasingly used to reestablish blood flow in blocked atherosclerotic coronary arteries. A serious complication of these procedures is reocclusion (restenosis), whichExpand

A case of osmotic demyelination syndrome occurred after the correction of severe hyponatraemia in hyperemesis gravidarum
BackgroundOsmotic demyelination syndrome (ODS) may be observed as a result of a rapid change in serum osmolarity, such as that induced by an overly rapid correction of serum sodium levels inExpand

Estrogen and selective estrogen receptor modulators exert neuroprotective effects and stimulate the expression of selective Alzheimer's disease indicator-1, a recently discovered antiapoptotic gene,
According to the fact that Alzheimer's disease (AD) is more common in postmenopausal women, estrogen treatment has been proposed. Experimental studies, still mostly performed using animal models,Expand

Rosiglitazone stimulates adipogenesis and decreases osteoblastogenesis in human mesenchymal stem cells
Thiazolidinediones (TZD) are widely prescribed for the treatment of Type 2 diabetes. Increased loss of bone mass and a higher incidence of fractures have been associated with the use of this class ofExpand

Prosurvival Effect of DHCR24/Seladin-1 in Acute and Chronic Responses to Oxidative Stress
ABSTRACT DHCR24/seladin-1, a crucial enzyme in sterol synthesis, is of lower abundance in brain areas affected by Alzheimer's disease. While high levels of DHCR24/seladin-1 exert antiapoptoticExpand

Cyclic adenosine 3',5'-monophosphate-responsive element modulator gene expression in germ cells of normo- and oligoazoospermic men.
In about one third of infertile men the cause of impaired spermatogenesis is not known. Spermatogenesis appears to be mediated at least in part by the pituitary gonadotropins, which activate theExpand
