Patients with glucocorticoid excess develop central obesity, yet in simple obesity, circulating glucocorticoid levels are normal. We have suggested that the increased activity and expression of the enzyme 11beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (11betaHSD1) generating active cortisol from cortisone within adipose tissue may be crucial in the pathogenesis(More)
The Golgi apparatus of motor neurons (GA) is fragmented in sporadic amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), in familial ALS with SOD1 mutations, and in mice that express SOD1G93A of familial ALS, in which it was detected months before paralysis. In paralyzed transgenic mice expressing SOD1G93A or SOD1G85R, mutant proteins aggregated not only in the cytoplasm(More)
BACKGROUND Psoriasis, especially when severe, is a risk factor for cardiometabolic disease beyond traditional risk factors. The mechanism of atherogenesis in psoriasis remains unknown. Cell membrane vesicles (ie, microparticles), released upon cell activation or apoptosis, have recently been associated with cardiometabolic disease and may play a pathogenic(More)
INTRODUCTION We describe a novel treatment of mucocutaneous peristomal junction breakdown in a patient with severe eczema using aerosol steroids, where conventional methods failed to achieve healing. PRESENTATION OF CASE Observation and photographic evidence showing resolution of severe peristomal eczema in a patient, in whom systemic steroids were(More)
