Importance of chronic fibroproliferative diseases (FDs) including pulmonary fibrosis, chronic kidney diseases, inflammatory bowel disease, and cardiovascular or liver fibrosis is rapidly increasing and they have become a major public health problem. According to some estimates about 45% of all deaths are attributed to FDs in the developed world.(More)
BACKGROUND Evidence suggests the central role of tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α in the pathomechanism of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD); however, its effect on epigenetic factors, including small non-coding microRNAs (miRs), is less known. Our present aim was the comparative investigation of the expression of TNF-α and immune response-related miRs in(More)
AIMS In polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), metabolic and cardiovascular dysfunction is related to hyperandrogenic status and insulin resistance, however, Vitamin D3 has a beneficial effect partly due to its anti-oxidant capacity. Nitrative stress is a major factor in the development of cardiovascular dysfunction and insulin resistance in various diseases.(More)
BACKGROUND Paediatric Crohn's disease patients suffer from several complications, including low bone mineral density and inadequate serum levels of 25-hydroxy vitamin D. AIMS The aim of this prospective study was to address the effect of infliximab therapy on bone metabolism, bone mineral density and vitamin D homeostasis. The seasonal variability of(More)
INTRODUCTION MicroRNAs (miRs) came recently into focus as promising novel research targets offering new insights into the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). AIMS The aim of our study was to identify a pediatric IBD (pIBD) characteristic miR profile serving as potential Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC) specific diagnostic(More)
Eosinophilic colitis (EC) is a common cause of haematochezia in infants and young children. The exact pathomechanism is not understood, and the diagnosis is challenging. The role of microRNAs as key class of regulators of mRNA expression and translation in patients with EC has not been explored. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to explore the(More)
Genetic background of coeliac disease has been subjects to intensive research since decades. However, only results of HLA phenotyping have been taken over to routine clinical practice. Meanwhile, data on the role of epigenetical factors in the manifestation of diseases have been emerging. In coeliac disease, there are several questions both in the fields of(More)
AIM To evaluate the role of microRNA (miR)-146a, -155 and -122 in the duodenal mucosa of pediatric patients with Crohn's disease (CD) and the effect of transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) on these miRs in duodenal epithelial and fibroblast cells. METHODS Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded biopsies derived from the macroscopically inflamed (CD inflamed: n(More)
