Placental protein 13 (galectin-13) has decreased placental expression but increased shedding and maternal serum concentrations in patients presenting with preterm pre-eclampsia and HELLP syndrome
Placental protein 13 (PP13) is a galectin expressed by the syncytiotrophoblast. Women who subsequently develop preterm pre-eclampsia have low first trimester maternal serum PP13 concentrations. ThisExpand

Coamplified and overexpressed genes at ERBB2 locus in gastric cancer
DNA copy number amplification at the chromosomal region of 17q is frequent in gastric cancer. Recently 17q21 was identified as the critical region for the amplicon formation because this regionExpand

Dynamic changes of matrix metalloproteinases and their tissue inhibitors in severe sepsis.
PURPOSE Little is known about the dynamic changes of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and their inhibitors (TIMPs) in sepsis. Our aim was therefore to investigate the time course of MMPs and theirExpand

Physilogically beneficial effects of titanium
Titanium is the tenth most common element in the Earth's crust. In soils we find it in form of TiO2, some titanates and Ti-silicates. Therefore, in most cases Ti is not taken up by plants andExpand

Circulating anti-heat-shock-protein antibodies in normal pregnancy and preeclampsia
It has been previously reported that circulating anti-heat-shock-protein (Hsp) antibody levels are elevated in cardiovascular disorders. The aim of the present study was to determine circulatingExpand

Perioperative time course of matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9), its tissue inhibitor TIMP-1 & S100B protein in carotid surgery
Background & objectives: Ischaemic stroke is a life burdening disease for which carotid endarterectomy (CEA) is considered a gold standard intervention. Pro-inflammatory markers like matrixExpand

Phage restriction and the presence of small plasmids in Salmonella enteritidis.
Between 1990-1994, a total of 16,505 S. enteritidis strains of human, animal and food origin were phage-typed, using the Hungarian scheme and the changes of incidence of the dominant phage types wereExpand
