Short-term impact of the 2017 diabetes awareness day in Greece

Ilias Ioannis , Kakoulidis Ioannis , Skitzi Georgia , Koukkou Eftychia

Introduction/Aim: Disease awareness days are numerous and varied [1]. In the present study we tried to assess the short-term impact of the 2017 diabetes awareness day in Greece by examining localized relevant internet-based searches.Materials/Methods: We collected data from Google TrendsTM regarding relative [internet] search volumes (RSVs) with key words “diabetes” (in Greek and English; study group) and “breast cancer” (a...

The 4-hydroxynonenal mediated oxidative damage of blood proteins and lipids involves secondary lipid peroxidation reactions

Alfaqih Mahmoud A. , Mustafa Ayman G. , Al-shboul Othman

Lipid peroxidation is linked with several metabolic diseases. Lipid peroxidation causes cellular damage through reactive aldehyde species such as 4-hydroxyonenal (4-HNE). The exact mechanism(s) by which 4-HNE causes damage in the intravascular compartment is not exactly known. Using an in vitro system, we investigated the damage induced by 4-HNE on the blood by measuring protein carbonyl groups and thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) following 4-HNE treatm...

Effect of duration of exposure to glucose-based peritoneal dialysis fluid on peritoneal membrane thickness

Oruc Aysegul , Dogrusoz Zemine , Bolca Naile , Korkmaz Mertsoz Rahime , Akgur Suat , Yildiz Abdulmecit , Ersoy Canan , Yavuz Mahmut , Ersoy Alparslan

The efficacy of peritoneal dialysis (PD) is closely related to the status of the peritoneum. Long-term PD leads to structural and functional changes in the peritoneum and affects dialysis adequacy. Also high-glucose content of dialysate accelerates peritoneal fibrosis. It is reported that ultrasonography (USG) reflects parietal peritoneal membrane thickness and PD duration is related with peritoneal thickness. This study aimed to evaluate peritoneal thickness with USG in PD pa...

Coexistence of mitochondrial diabetes and primary amyloidosis

Safi Wajdi , Tabbebi Mouna , Kacem Faten Hadj , Ghorbel Dorra , Rekik Nabila , Feki Mouna Mnif , Mnif Fatma , Fakhfakh Faiza , Abid Mohamed

Introduction: Primary amyloidosis is a multi-systemic disease difficult to identify given the diversity of the disorders that it can cause especially at an early stage of the disease. This makes its diagnosis difficult in case of association with a pathology that can be intricate with its clinical expression. In this context we report the first case in the literature associating mitochondrial diabetes (DM) with a primary amyloidosisCase: A 32 years old g...
