Deregulation of miR-324/KISS1/kisspeptin in early ectopic pregnancy: mechanistic findings with clinical and diagnostic implications
[Abstract] BACKGROUND: Ectopic pregnancy is a life-threatening condition for which novel screening tools that would enable early accurate diagnosis would improve clinical outcomes. Kisspeptins, encoded by KISS1, play ...
Leukocyte telomere length in patients with radiographic knee osteoarthritis
[Abstract] Relative mean telomere sequence amount was determined by quantitative PCR (qPCR) of peripheral blood leukocyte (PBL) samples obtained at recruitment (n = 310) from individuals from the Osteoarthritis (OA) ...

[Abstract] There are more than 200 rheumatic diseases, which are the second leading cause of incapacitation worldwide and affect about 2 billion people, mainly women. This thesis focuses especially on two of the most common: ...
Characterization of HMGB1/2 interactome in prostate cancer by yeast two hybrid approach: potential pathobiological implications
[Abstract] High mobility group box B (HMGB) proteins are pivotal in the development of cancer. Although the proteomics of prostate cancer (PCa) cells has been reported, the involvement of HMGB proteins and their interactome ...
