In humans, we reported an association of a certain allele of carnosinase gene with reduced carnosinase activity and absence of nephropathy in diabetic patients. CN1 degrades histidine dipeptides such as carnosine and anserine. Further, we and others showed that treatment with carnosine improves renal function and wound healing in diabetic mice and rats. We(More)
Polymorphonuclear granulocytes (PMNs) are thought to fulfill their role in host defense primarily via phagocytosis and release of cytotoxic compounds and to be inefficient in antigen presentation and stimulation of specific T cells. Dendritic cells (DCs), in contrast, are potent antigen-presenting cells with the unique capacity to initiate primary immune(More)
Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disorder that affects approximately 2-3% of the population worldwide and has severe effects on patients' physical and psychological well-being. The discovery that psoriasis is an immune-mediated disease has led to more targeted, effective therapies; recent advances have focused on the interleukin (IL)-12/23p40(More)
It was the purpose of the present study to quantify the expected motor deficit in parkinsonian patients with the computer assisted Motor Performance Test Series (MPS), version 05.87 by Schuhfried (1987) and to examine which of the motor test variables found correlate at a significance level of p less than 0.01 with items of "motor examination" recorded at(More)
Dermatopathology represents the gold standard for the diagnosis of skin diseases and neoplasms that cannot be diagnosed on clinical grounds alone. The aim of this study was to test the feasibility and to assess the accuracy of an Internet-based real-time (live) teledermatopathology consultation. Twenty teaching cases and 10 randomly selected routine cases(More)
We report of a 23-year-old woman who presented with a six-month history of a recurring, pruritic rash located on her chest, upper abdomen and most recently on the lower back. Until then the patient had been healthy. She did not take any medications, was not aware of any allergies or a family history of skin diseases. The rash had occurred initially six(More)
Analogous to adenomyoepitheliomas of the breast, cutaneous adenomyoepithelioma is composed of two components, one being myoepithelial, the other ductal epithelial, and it lies in the spectrum of neoplasms having a "pure" myoepithelioma at one end and a mixed apocrine tumor at the other. We present the case of a 53-year-old woman with a 3 cm nodular lesion(More)
