UNLABELLED Esophageal adenocarcinoma incidence is rapidly increasing which may be due to the growing incidence of Barrett's esophagus (BE) and obesity. The mechanisms linking obesity and progression of Barrett's carcinogenesis is poorly understood. The aim of the study was to evaluate the expression of adipokines receptors in BE and in normal squamous(More)
The vascular endothelium forms a barrier that controls flow of solutes and proteins and the entry of leukocytes into tissue. Injured tissue releases IL-33, which then alarms the immune system and attracts Th2 cells, thus increasing local concentration of IL-4. The aim of the study was to assess the influence of IL-33 and IL-4 on barrier functions of the(More)
The low-grade inflammation present in obese visceral adipose tissue impairs glucose metabolism, and contributes to the development of insulin resistance and weight gain. Immune processes occurring in response to the deposition of cholesterol within the vascular walls support atherosclerotic plaque growth and contribute to the cardiovascular complications.(More)
BACKGROUND Human vascular endothelial function and integrity may be regulated by many non-specific factors. However, the potential influence of specific antigens via an IgE-mediated mechanism remains unknown. The aim of the study was to determine the expression of the IgE receptors FcεRI and FcεRII in the human vascular endothelium and to assess their(More)
INTRODUCTION Atherosclerosis leading to coronary artery disease (CAD) is a chronic inflammatory condition. Interleukin 35 (IL-35) released by regulatory T cells (Tregs) has been found to be associated with CAD in the Chinese population. However, nothing is known about the relation between IL-35 concentrations and cholesterol levels. The aim of the study was(More)
BACKGROUND Asthma is an inflammatory disorder with multiple mediators involved in the inflammatory response. Despite several attempts, no new anti-inflammatory drugs have been registered for asthma treatment for several years. However, thiazolidinediones, peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor agonists, have demonstrated some anti-inflammatory(More)
