We recently treated this 20-year-old male patient by an endovascular technique. At first, he was treated by intra-aneurysmal embolisation with parent artery preservation. But he presented with rerupture 1 month(More)
15-Deoxy-(Delta12,14)-prostaglandin J(2) (15d-PGJ(2)) is a naturally occurring cyclopentenone metabolite of prostaglandin D(2) (PGD(2)) and is known as a specific potent ligand for the peroxisome proliferators activator receptor-gamma (PPARgamma). 15d-PGJ(2) inhibits cell growth and induces apoptosis in a number of different cancer cells. However, the(More)
OBJECTIVE The MER receptor tyrosine kinase (MERTK) gene is critical for the efficient clearance of apoptotic cells and has implications for inflammation and autoimmune diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). We investigated the genetic polymorphisms in MERTK to evaluate it as a potential candidate gene for a host genetic study of SLE and(More)
