The role of CD36 receptor in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis.
Atherosclerosis is a progressive, chronic inflammation in artery walls. Oxidized low density lipoproteins (ox-LDL) play an important role in atherosclerotic plaque formation. ox-LDL are taken up byExpand

Metabolic Syndrome is Associated with Ceramide Accumulation in Visceral Adipose Tissue of Women with Morbid Obesity
Accelerated transmembrane transport of long‐chain fatty acids dependent on fatty acid transporters is responsible for lipid accumulation and, eventually, the development of metabolic syndrome. ThisExpand

Creatinine or cystatin C - which is a better index of renal function in morbid obesity?
PURPOSE The most important index of renal function is estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) which can be calculated from creatinine or cystatin C concentration in serum. There is uncertainty,Expand

Lack of pronounced changes in the expression of fatty acid handling proteins in adipose tissue and plasma of morbidly obese humans
Background/ObjectivesFatty acid handling proteins are involved in the process of accumulation of lipids in different fat tissue depots. Thus, the aim of the study was to estimate the expression ofExpand

Impact of Weight Loss on the Total Antioxidant/Oxidant Potential in Patients with Morbid Obesity—A Longitudinal Study
The assessment of total antioxidant activity seems to have a higher diagnostic value than the evaluation of individual antioxidants separately. Therefore, this is the first study to assess the totalExpand
