Actinomadura pelletieri mycetoma--an atypical case with spine and abdominal wall involvement.
We describe a case of mycetoma caused by Actinomadura pelletieri with simultaneous involvement of the spine, abdominal wall and retroperitoneal space in a man who had suffered from 'Madura foot' 10Expand
Smoke exposure and circulating progenitor cells: evidence for modulation of antioxidant enzymes and cell count.
BACKGROUND Cigarette smoking is involved in vascular inflammation and impairment of circulating progenitor cells (CPCs), including endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs). The study aim was to evaluateExpand
Circulating progenitor cells in rheumatoid arthritis: association with inflammation and oxidative stress
Objectives: To evaluate the association between inflammation, oxidative stress, and circulating progenitor cell (CPC) number and redox equilibrium, vascular lesions and accelerated atherosclerosis inExpand
Chronic Kidney Disease Management in General Practice: A Focus on Inappropriate Drugs Prescriptions
Nephrotoxic drugs prescriptions are often prescribed inappropriately by general practitioners (GPs), increasing the risk of chronic kidney disease (CKD). The aim of this study was to detectExpand
AB0075 Toll-like receptor 3 and interleukine 1b expression in circulating progenitor cells isolated from patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
Background Circulating progenitor cells (CPCs), including CD34+ cells and endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs), play a role in delaying atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease. Toll-like receptor 3Expand
FRI0103 Vit d deficiency, depletion of circulating endothelial progenitor cells and impaired arterial stiffness in patients with ra
Background Vitamin D deficiency was recently acknowledged as an independent predictor of cardiovascular diseases and all-cause mortality in several clinical setting and its serum levels are commonlyExpand
