UNLABELLED Preeclampsia is a serious cardiovascular complication in pregnancy which is associated with an increased future metabolic and cardiovascular risk for mother and newborn. Recently, chemerin was introduced as a novel adipokine inducing insulin resistance in vitro and in vivo. In the current study, we investigated serum concentrations of chemerin by(More)
Preeclampsia (PE) contributes to maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality worldwide. Moreover, it is associated with an increased future metabolic and cardiovascular risk for mother and newborn. Recently, growth arrest specific protein (Gas) 6 has been introduced as a novel metabolic risk factor with anti-angiogenic, pro-atherogenic, and pro-adipogenic(More)
A total of 3406 brains were used to determine the relationship between length of body and weight of brain, which at a correlation coefficient of approximately 0.3 are not very close. Individual results are in good agreement with those reported in a similar paper by Polish authors. It is suggested that additional influential factors be included in such(More)
Light- and electron-microscopie studies were performed in glia cells and neurons of the cerebellum of 12-day-old rats until 48 following intraperitoneal application of 8 mg/kg 6-aminonicotinamide (6-AN), an antimetabolite of nicotinamide that inhibits the oxidative pentose-phosphate pathway. Particularly sensitive were the neuroblasts of the external(More)
6-Aminonicotinamide (6-AN), an antimetabolite of nicotinamide, damages the astrocytes and oligodendrocytes through a blockade of the pentose phosphate pathway. Both types of glia cells become hydropic. A third type of glia cell, described by VAUGHN and PETERS, the multipotential glia, is affected to a lesser extent. These cells phagocytize and form(More)
