Proper control of hepatic glucose production is central to whole-body glucose homeostasis, and its disruption plays a major role in diabetes. Here, we demonstrate that although established as an intracellular lipid chaperone, aP2 is in fact actively secreted from adipocytes to control liver glucose metabolism. Secretion of aP2 from adipocytes is regulated(More)
The lipid chaperone aP2/FABP4 has been implicated in the pathology of many immunometabolic diseases, including diabetes in humans, but aP2 has not yet been targeted for therapeutic applications. aP2 is not only an intracellular protein but also an active adipokine that contributes to hyperglycemia by promoting hepatic gluconeogenesis and interfering with(More)
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a systemic disease of connective tissue which affects joints lined with synovial membrane. Laryngeal joints also have such a structure. Among all reasons leading to their inflammation rheumatoid arthritis is mentioned on the first place. In larynx RA mostly affects cricoarythenoid joints (CA). RA of the CA joints is found in 27%(More)
Angiosarcoma is a rare form of sarcoma which may be either a primary tumor or it may result from previous irradiation because of another tumor. In this paper, we present a case of a female patient diagnosed as having peritoneal disseminated angiosarcoma 20 years after ovarian cancer treatment (surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy). The case was very(More)
Congenital nasolacrimal duct mucocele (CNDM) is a very rare condition in newborns. Prolapse or expansion of the mucocele into the nose may lead to respiratory distress and difficulty in feeding. The triad of cystic medial canthal mass, dilatation of the nasolacrimal duct and a contiguous sub-mucosal nasal mass on computed tomography (CT) is indicative in(More)
