      [Abstract] Introduction and objectives: Circulating galectin-3 (Gal-3) is elevated and significantly correlates with all-cause and cardiovascular mortality in patients with heart failure. However, the relationship between ...
    • Circulating miR-181a-5p as a New Biomarker for Acute Cellular Rejection in Heart Transplantation 

      Constanso-Conde, Ignacio; Hermida-Prieto, Manuel; Barge-Caballero, Eduardo; Núñez, Lucía; Pombo-Otero, Jorge; Suárez-Fuentetaja, Natalia; Paniagua-Martín, María J.; Barge-Caballero, Gonzalo; Couto-Mallón, David; Pan Lizcano, Ricardo Francisco; Vázquez Rodríguez, José Manuel; Crespo-Leiro, María Generosa (Elsevier, 2020-06-07)
      [Abstract] Background: Acute cellular rejection (ACR) is a major complication in heart transplantation (HTx). Endomyocardial biopsy is the reference method for early detection of ACR, but a new non-invasive approach is ...
    • Gonadotrophin-releasing hormone agonist-induced pituitary adenoma apoplexy and casual finding of a parathyroid carcinoma: a case report and review of literature
