INTRODUCTION Oxidized low-density lipoprotein (ox-LDL) plays a key role in the processes of atherogenesis, the major cause of myocardial infarction. Increased levels of ox-LDL relate to plaque instability in human coronary atherosclerotic lesions. Moreover, ox-LDL levels show a direct correlation to the severity of coronary syndromes. Most of these effects(More)
INTRODUCTION hMLH1 gene, lying on chromosome 3p21-23, is a key factor of the mismatch repair (MMR) complex, which amends DNA replication errors. MMR alterations are involved in the development of both hereditary and sporadic forms of colorectal carcinoma related to ulcerative colitis (UC). I219V Polymorphism is located on exon 8 of hMLH1 and provides an(More)
The adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) gene, localized on chromosome 5, consists of 15 exons. The largest is the exon 15, which comprises more than 75% of the coding sequence of the gene and is the most common target for both germline and somatic mutations (Groden et al, 1993). The germline mutations in the APC gene are in charge of the familial adenomatous(More)
PURPOSE Recent evidence indicates that people with normal glucose tolerance (NGT) but 1-h post-load plasma glucose (1-h OGTT) ≥ 155 mg/dl have an increased risk for developing Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), determining a new risk category with deeper metabolic impairment. The aim of this study was to identify, among women with gestational diabetes (GDM),(More)
PURPOSE Swallowing disorders can be secondary to different types of diseases in which, at least initially, patients succeed in establishing voluntary or involuntary compensatory mechanisms that enable them to maintain a sufficient nutritional state. When the compensatory mechanisms become insufficient massive food aspiration into the airways can occur and(More)
