Brain-derived neurotrophic factor and its clinical implications
TLDR
Brain-derived neurotrophic factor regulates glucose and energy metabolism and prevents exhaustion of β cells, and may be useful in the prevention and management of several diseases including diabetes mellitus.
Urinary microbiota in patients with prostate cancer and benign prostatic hyperplasia
TLDR
It is suggested that there are significant changes in the microbial population in EPS, urine and seminal fluid of subjects with prostate cancer and BPH, indicating a possible role for these bacteria in these two conditions.

  • 1 February 2002
TLDR
It is suggested that estrogen, statins, and essential fatty acids and their metabolites, in addition to their other modes of action in the prevention of osteoporosis, have the ability to augment constitutional (or endothelial) nitric oxide generation, which is known to be beneficial in osteoporeosis.
Are free radicals involved in the pathobiology of human essential hypertension?
  • K. Kumar, U. Das
  • Biology, Medicine
    Free radical research communications
  • 1993
TLDR
An increase in free radical generation and a simultaneous decrease in the production of nitric oxide and anti-oxidants such as SOD and vitamin E occurs in essential hypertension, which can lead to an increase in peripheral vascular resistance and hypertension.
