Endoplasmic reticulum in health and disease: the 12th International Calreticulin Workshop, Delphi, Greece.

Endoplasmic reticulum in health and disease: the 12th International Calreticulin Workshop, Delphi, Greece. J Cell Mol Med. 2017 Nov 21;: Authors: Charonis AS, Michalak M, Groenendyk J, Agellon LB Abstract Starting from 1994, every 2 years, an international workshop is organized focused on calreticulin and other endoplasmic reticulum chaperones. In 2017, the workshop took place at Delphi Greece. Participants from North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australia presented their recent data and discussed them extensively with their colleagues. Presentations dealt with structural aspects of calreticulin and calnexin, the role of Ca(2+) in cellular signalling and in autophagy, the endoplasmic reticulum stress and the unfolded protein response, the role of calreticulin in immune responses. Several presentations focused on the role of calreticulin and other ER chaperones in a variety of disease states, including haemophilia, obesity, diabetes, Sjogren's syndrome, Chagas diseases, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, neurological malignancies (especially glioblastoma), haematological malignancies (especially essential thrombocythemia and myelofibrosis), lung adenocarcinoma, renal pathology with emphasis in fibrosis and drug toxicity. In addition, the role of calreticulin and calnexin in growth and wound healing was discussed, as well as the possible use of extracellular calreticulin as a marker for certain diseases. It was agreed that the 13th I...

One of the important factors to prevent and treat diabetes is nutritional therapy. Epidemiological and short-term interventional studies emphasise the association between higher fibre intake and improvements in lipid profile as well as fasting and postprandial glycaemic control. Soluble fibres are more effective for management of diabetes, obesity, dyslipidaemia, ...

Twelve commercially available meat products, with a total of 210 fresh and processed meat samples, were analysed for nitrate and nitrite by an optimised RP-HPLC technique with isocratic elution using n-octylamine in 20.0% methanol at pH 6.60. The nitrate content in the meat samples ranged from 0.00–12...

Medical experts recognize some clinical, geometrical and haemodynamic features of diabetic retinopathy. These features include the blood vessel area, exudates, microaneurysm, hemorrhages and neovascularization, etc. In Computer Aided Diagnosis (CAD) systems, these features are detected in fundus images using computer vision techniques. In this paper, we review the methods of low, middle and high...

Authors: Kuyucu E, Kara A, Say F, Erdil M, Bülbül AM Abstract As it is mentioned in the literature, rates of complications and revision are higher in the obese compared to non-obese patients, although obesity does not a contraindication for unicompartmental knee arthroplasty and successful outcomes are achieved. However, there is not any study in the literature comparing the outcomes of fixed and mobile unicompartmental prostheses which are applied in the obese patients. Objective of this study was to compare outcomes of our obese patients who we applied fixed or mobile unicompartmental arthroplasty and f...
