The effect of red grape seed extract on serum paraoxonase activity in patients with mild to moderate hyperlipidemia [O efeito do extrato de semente de uva vermelha na atividade do soro paraoxonase em doentes com hiperlipidemia leve a moderada]
CONTEXT AND OBJECTIVE: Red grape seed extract (RGSE) contains oligomeric proanthocyanidin complexes as a class of flavonoids. These compounds are potent antioxidants and exert many health-promoting effects. This study aimed ...
Plasma oxidized LDL and thiol-containing molecules in patients with exudative age-related macular degeneration.
It was proposed that total thiols (tSH) as powerful reducing agents and oxidized low-density lipoprotein (OX-LDL) may be associated with development of choroidal neovascularization in exudative age-related macular degeneration ...
Relationship between vitamin D receptor gene FokI and ApaI polymorphisms and serum levels of fetuin-A, vitamin D, and parathyroid hormone in patients on hemodialysis
Introduction. Low fetuin-A and 1,25-hydroxyvitamin D3 (vitamin D) levels accompanied with high intact parathyroid hormone (PTH) contents are associated with cardiovascular disease in dialysis patients. The aim of present ...
Growth Arrest-specific 6 Protein and Matrix Gla Protein in Hemodialysis Patients.
Plasma protein growth arrest-specific 6 (GAS6) and matrix Gla protein (MGP) are crucial mediators of vascular calcification and are involved in the development of vascular complications in chronic kidney diseases. This ...
Serum Receptor Activator of Nuclear Factor-? B Ligand, Osteoprotegrin, and Intact Parathyroid Hormone in Hemodialysis and Renal Transplant Patients
Serum receptor activator of nuclear factor-? B ligand and osteoprotegrin are mediated to vascular calcification in the general population. Our knowledge is very sparse in hemodialysis and renal transplant patients. Receptor ...
