Metabolomics is an emerging approach in a systems biology field. Due to continuous development in advanced analytical techniques and in bioinformatics, metabolomics has been extensively applied as a novel, holistic diagnostic tool in clinical and biomedical studies. Metabolome's measurement, as a chemical reflection of a current phenotype of a particular(More)
Cancer disease is the second leading cause of death in the world. Epidemiology data indicate that early diagnosis of a tumour increases a patient's chance of recovery. Biomarkers are effective instruments which can potentially lead to precancer screening or precancer diagnosis and may provide useful information on the cancer type and the disease's stage of(More)
Pulmonary embolism (PE) is a common cardiovascular emergency which can lead to pulmonary hypertension (PH) and right ventricular failure as a consequence of pulmonary arterial bed occlusion. The diagnosis of PE is challenging due to nonspecific clinical presentation, which results in relatively high mortality. Moreover, the pathological factors associated(More)
The goal of the present paper was to develop a quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) method using a simple statistical approach, such as multiple linear regression (MLR) for predicting the blood-brain barrier (BBB) permeability of chemical compounds. The "best" MLR models, comprised logP and either molecular mass (M) or isolated atomic energy(More)
Prostate cancer (CaP) is a leading cause of cancer deaths in men worldwide. The alarming statistics, the currently applied biomarkers are still not enough specific and selective. In addition, pathogenesis of CaP development is not totally understood. Therefore, in the present work, metabolomics study related to urinary metabolic fingerprinting analyses has(More)
In a personalized treatment designed for a patient with pancreatic cancer resistant to other treatments, the success of Mitomycin C (MMC) has been highlighted. This was revealed in a murine xenograft tumor model encompassing pancreatic adenocarcinoma cells extracted from the patient. The patient was found to exhibit a biallelic inactivation of the PALB2(More)
Although in recent decades the development of many drugs against cancer has been witnessed, the morbidity and mortality for the most prevalent urogenital cancer have not been significantly reduced. A key task in cancer medicine is to detect the disease as early as possible. In order to achieve this, many new technologies have been developed for cancer(More)
AIM The purpose of this work was to develop and validate a rapid and robust LC-MS/MS method for the determination of dexmedetomidine (DEX) in plasma, suitable for analysis of a large number of samples. METHOD Systematic approach, Design of Experiments, was applied to optimize ESI source parameters and to evaluate method robustness, therefore, a rapid,(More)
BACKGROUND Resistant hypertension (RH) affects about 15-20% of treated hypertensive patients worldwide. RH increases the risk of cardiovascular events such as myocardial infarction and stroke by 50%. The pathological mechanisms underlying resistance to treatment are still poorly understood. OBJECTIVE The main goal of this pilot study was to determine and(More)
The automated mass spectral deconvolution and identification system (AMDIS) is a modern analytical tool, mostly used as a data processing method in environmental studies. The most attractive feature of that software is a fast, automatic data processing, which includes removal of interferences from the overlapping peaks and purification of the obtained mass(More)
