The endoplasmic reticulum and the Golgi apparatus are the subcellular sites for glycosphingolipid neobiosynthesis. In addition to this very well-established knowledge, it is now emerging that post-Golgi changes in glycosphingolipid structures occurring at the plasma membrane are an important opportunity to modulate cell glycosphingolipid composition and to(More)
BACKGROUND Benefits of drug-eluting stents (DES) in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) are greatest in those at the highest risk of target-vessel revascularization (TVR). Drug-eluting stents cost more than bare-metal stents (BMS) and necessitate prolonged dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT), which increases costs, bleeding risk, and risk of complications(More)
The collective properties of the lipids that form biological membranes give rise to a very high level of lateral organization within the membranes. Lipid-driven membrane organization allows the segregation of membrane-associated components into specific lipid rafts, which function as dynamic platforms for signal transduction, protein processing, and(More)
Tumor-infiltrating immune cells can be conditioned by molecules released within the microenvironment to thwart antitumor immune responses, thereby facilitating tumor growth. Among immune cells, neutrophils play an important protumorigenic role by favoring neoangiogenesis and/or by suppressing antitumor immune responses. Tumor-derived oxysterols have(More)
BACKGROUND We sought to compare the long-term safety of two devices with different antiproliferative properties: the Endeavor zotarolimus-eluting stent (E-ZES; Medtronic, Inc) and the Cypher sirolimus-eluting stent (C-SES; Cordis, Johnson & Johnson) in a broad group of patients and lesions. METHODS Between May 21, 2007 and Dec 22, 2008, we recruited 8791(More)
An efficient method for the synthesis of long-chain α,ω-diamino acids, starting from natural α-amino acids, has been developed. The long-chain skeleton has been generated through condensation between a protected aldehyde, derived from l-aspartic acid, and an ylide obtained from an ω-hydroxy-alkyl phosphonium salt. After conversion of the ω-hydroxy group(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the safety and efficacy of durable polymer drug eluting stents (DES) and biodegradable polymer biolimus eluting stents (biolimus-ES). DESIGN Network meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials. DATA SOURCES AND STUDY SELECTION Medline, Google Scholar, Embase, and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL)(More)
BACKGROUND Treatment with aspirin and a P2Y12 inhibitor is commonly used in patients with cardiovascular disorders. The overall effect of such treatment on all-cause mortality is unknown. In the Dual Antiplatelet Therapy (DAPT) Study, continuation of dual antiplatelet therapy beyond 12 months after coronary stenting was associated with an unexpected(More)
