Authors: Lavoie JM Abstract Plasma cholesterol level is determined by a complex dynamics that involves transport lipoproteins which levels are tightly dependent on how the liver and the intestine regulate cholesterol and biliary acid metabolism. Regulation of cholesterol and biliary acids by the liver and the intestine is in turn coupled to a large array of enzymes and transporters that largely influence the inflow and the outflow of cholesterol and biliary acids through these organs. The activity of the key regulators of cholesterol and biliary acids may be influenced by several external factors such as pharmacolo...

As a starting point, it is necessary to establish a working definition of women’s health.  This isn’t as straightforward as it might seem, as women’s health can be considered at multiple levels.  The c...

This study was performed to assess the expression pattern of survivin in benign and malignant gallbladder lesions using immunohistochemistry (IHC), and to assess its clinicopathological significance. SETTINGS AND DESIGN: Prospective study from July 2012 to July 2014 was performed as a part of intramural research project. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Tissue samples from resected gallbladder for cholelithiasis (n = 27) and carcinoma gallbladder (n= 24) were evaluated for survivin expression by IHC using a scoring system. Their expression was correlated with different clinicopathological parameters. STATISTICAL ANALY...
