Secondary brain damage after traumatic brain injury (TBI) involves neuro-inflammatory mechanisms that are mainly dependent on the intracerebral production of cytokines. Interleukin-6 (IL-6) may have a role both in the pathogenesis of neuronal damage and in the recovery mechanisms of injured neurons through the modulation of nerve growth factor (NGF)(More)
BACKGROUND Insulin resistance (IR) is usually the first metabolic alteration diagnosed in obese children and the key risk factor for development of comorbidities. The factors determining whether or not IR develops as a result of excess body mass index (BMI) are still not completely understood. OBJECTIVES This study aimed to elucidate the mechanisms(More)
We have investigated how four different pour point depressant (PPD) polymers affect the pour point transition in mixtures of a single pure wax in a solvent. We used either n-eicosane (C20), CH3(CH2)18CH3, n-tetracosane (C24), CH3(CH2)22CH3 or n-hexatriacontane (C36), CH3(CH2)34CH3 as the wax component with either n-heptane or toluene as the solvent(More)
