Genetic polymorphisms of vitamin D3 metabolizing CYP24A1 and CYP2R1 enzymes in Turkish patients with ischemic stroke.
Conclusion This is the first study conducted regarding the association of CYP24A1 rs927650 and CYP2R1 rs10741657 genetic polymorphisms and ischemic stroke risk. The polymorphic genotypes of these polymorphisms, together with hypertension, diabetes, smoking, and obesity, were found as significant risk factors for ischemic stroke.

DIABETES is a lifelong condition that can cause serious health woes for those affected by it - here are the 10 hidden symptoms to look out for.
Revel Pharmaceuticals is the result of work funded in large part by the SENS Research Foundation, with the support of its many philanthropic donors. That part of the history of the underlying research isn't covered in today's short article on the company, so it seems worth mentioning here. Cross-links are chemical bonds formed between molecules in the extracellular matrix. Some are necessary to structure and function, but other unwanted cross-links are added over the years, creating stiffness in flexible tissues such as blood vessel walls and skin. In the case of blood vessels, stiffness causes hypertension, and eventual m...
Hypoparathyroidism and hyperparathyroidism guidelines developed by more than 100 global experts were presented at the ASBMR meeting and will be published next year, replacing 2014 and 2016 guidelines.Medscape Medical News
Researchers say men outnumber women in stroke therapy clinical trials, which means women may end up receiving less effective treatment.
VITAMIN B12 deficiency can lead to a cascade of symptoms if left untreated, ranging from memory loss to confusion. One peculiar sensation in the hands, however, warrants immediate medical help.
In this one-hour webinar, NIH intramural investigator, Dr. Nicole Farmer, MD, will present her recent work on " The Role of Teaching Kitchens in Addressing Nutrition Disparities and Implementation Research. " Dr. Farmer is an internal medicine physician and is currently a Staff Scientist within the Translational Biobehavioral and Health Disparities Branch at the NIH Clinical Center. Her research covers three major areas: biopsychosocial outcomes of health behaviors, the role of cooking interventions on dietary behaviors and cardiovascular outcomes, and the role of social determinants of health in nutrition dispar...
Pathological findings of the islets can reflect the pathophysiologies of type 2 diabetes. Detailed pathological analysis enable to subclassify type 2 diabetes. ABSTRACTThe etiology of type 2 diabetes is multifactorial, in which environmental and genetic factors are involved to varying degrees. This suggests that its pathophysiology might vary depending on the individuals. Knowledge of the differences is critical, because these differences are directly linked to the care and treatmen t of the patients. Recent studies have attempted to carry out subclassifications of type 2 diabetes based on clinical an...
