Supposedly, thyrocyte-specific transcripts such as thyroglobulin (Tg) and thyroid-stimulating hormone receptor (TSH-R) were proposed to be useful for the diagnosis of circulating tumour cells in patients suffering from differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC). However, several research groups reported blood-borne Tg transcripts in healthy individuals. This(More)
Lack of quality sleep increases central nervous system oxidative stress and impairs removal of neurotoxic soluble metabolites from brain parenchyma. During aging poor sleep quality, caused by sleep fragmentation, increases central nervous system cellular stress. Currently, it is not known how organisms offset age-related cytotoxic metabolite increases in(More)
Samples of apparently normal skin from one patient with von Willebrand's disease (vWD) and five patients without vWD were examined with fluorescein-tagged antiserum to the component of factor VIII required for aggregation of platelets by ristocetin (VIII-R.A.F.). No evidence of VIII-R.A.F. was found in the vWD skin, while bright granules were seen on and/or(More)
