Authors: Zorc-Pleskovič R, Pleskovič A, Vraspir-Porenta O, Zorc M, Milutinović A Abstract In coronary artery disease (CAD), the disruption of the tunica media immune privilege manifests as increased leukocyte infiltration and the formation of vasa vasorum. We aimed to characterize the immune privilege status of the tunica media in human coronary arteries (CAs) with atherosclerotic plaques, by comparing the abundance and composition of immune-cell infiltrates within the individual arterial-wall layers, and by evaluating vasa vasorum neovascularization of the tunica media. The tissue samples were obtained from 36 ...

Authors: Yılmaz Susluer S, Kayabasi C, Ozmen Yelken B, Asik A, Celik D, Balci Okcanoglu T, Serin Senger S, Biray Avci C, Kose S, Gunduz C Abstract Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been implicated in numerous biological processes, including epigenetic regulation, cell-cycle control, and transcriptional/translational regulation of gene expression. Differential expression of lncRNAs and disruption of the regulatory processes are recognized as critical steps in cancer development. The role of lncRNAs in hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is not well understood. Here we analyzed the expression of 135 lncRNAs in plasm...

Authors: Caronia L, Saglietti M Abstract This paper focuses on the epistemic and interactional resources displayed by nurses participating in medical case construction and the ways through which they make a difference in the unfolding of this activity. This paper draws on an ethnographic research in an Italian Intensive Care Unit (ICU) selected according to a purposeful sampling approach out of a national sample of 40 ICUs participating in a larger research project. Our dataset, collected over a period of six months of ethnographic observations, consisted of the observers' field notes and log-books, audio and video...

Authors: Müller T Abstract Heterogeneous expression of neurotransmitter deficits results from onset and progression of Parkinson's disease. Intervals, characterized by reappearance of motor and associated certain nonmotor symptoms, determine the end of good tolerability and efficacy of oral levodopa therapy. These "OFF" states result from levodopa pharmacokinetics and disease progression-related deterioration of the central buffering capacity for fluctuations of dopamine levels. This review discusses safinamide as an add-on therapeutic agent in orally levodopa-treated patients with "OFF" ph...
