OBJECTIVES There are very few published studies of agents having the potential to improve bone health in children with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The objective of this study was to establish the efficacy and safety of intranasal calcitonin in improving bone mineral density (BMD) in young patients with IBD and to define additional factors that impact(More)
Statins enjoy widespread acceptance as effective drugs to reduce morbidity and mortality in patients with and without cardiovascular disease, and are considered safe for long-term use.

OBJECTIVE Scavenging of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) elevates blood pressure (BP) in patients receiving anti-angiogenic therapy. Similarly, inhibition of circulation VEGF by its soluble receptor fms-like tyrosine kinase-1 (sFlt-1) underlies BP elevation in pre-eclampsia. Both phenotypes are characterized by augmented production of endothelin-1(More)
INTRODUCTION The endothelial glycocalyx, consisting of membrane-bound proteoglycans and attached glycosaminoglycans plays an important role in vascular homeostasis. We aimed to assess whether glycocalyx mRNA transcripts are differentially expressed in placental tissue of pre-eclamptic and normotensive women. METHODS We evaluated the expression of(More)
