Vascular cellular adhesion molecules are high during one year after acute COVID-19 infection in patients with type 2 diabetes

Alieva Anna , Khaydarova Feruza , Sultonova Khurshida , Kamalova Khurshida , Talenova Vasila , Tajieva Iroda

Background: Molecules of adhesion is a group of glycoproteins which expressed in cell surface and play pivotal role in inflammatory and oncological processes, and new studies show increasing of adhesion molecules within 6-12 hours after COVID-19 contamination, peaking in 24 hours. High level of adhesion molecules is a predictor of disease severity and mortality rate.Aim: Of our study was to evaluate the level of VCAM-1 in patients with type 2 diabetes me...

Association between lipoprotein(a) concentrations and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease risk in patients with familial hypercholesterolemia: an analysis from the HELLAS-FH

Anagnostis Panagiotis , Rizos Christos , Skoumas Ioannis , Rallidis Loukianos , Tziomalos Konstantinos , Skalidis Emmanuel , Kotsis Vasileios , Doumas Michalis , Kolovou Genovefa , Sfikas George , Garoufi Anastasia , Lambadiari Vaia , Dima Ioanna , Kiouri Estela , Agapakis Dimitrios , Zacharis Evangelos , Antza Christina , Kolovou Vana , Koumaras Charalambos , Bantouvakis George , Liamis George , Liberopoulos Evangelos

Aims: Lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] is an independent risk factor for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) in the general population. However, such a role in patients with familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is less documented. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the association between Lp(a) concentrations and ASCVD prevalence in adult patients with FH.Methods: This was a cross-sectional study from the Hellenic Familial Hypercholesterolemia Regi...

Maldonado Genessis , Aouhab Zineb , Ionescu Madalina , Chacko Amala , Franco Diana , Robles Lydia , Navarrete Deyger

Introduction: Diabetes mellitus (DM) is frequently associated with vascular complications including diabetic microangiopathy. Nailfold capillaroscopy is a useful non-invasive diagnostic tool to identify changes in the microvascular architecture. Published literature hints at the presence of nailfold circulatory morphologic changes in diabetic patients.Objective: The purpose of the study was to identify by nailfold capillaroscopy microvascular changes in ...

Empagliflozin induces endocan expression and alleviates NAFLD through regulation of NF-κB pathway

Nasiri-Ansari Narjes , Kyriakopoulos Georgios , Kyrou Ioannis , Flessa Christina-Maria , Lianou Maria , Karapanagioti Angeliki , Kaltsas Gregory , Papavassiliou Athanasios G , Randeva Harpal S , Kassi Eva

Introduction: Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the leading cause of chronic liver disorders. Endocan is a novel molecule of endothelial dysfuction which is expressed in liver. SGLT2i have been reported to improve NAFLD through amelioration of inflammation. While there are contradictory results regarding the serum endocan levels in NAFLD patients, data regarding endocan expression in liver tissue are limited. Aim: Herein, we aimed to investigat...

Very Low Calorie Ketogenic Diet combined with interval training for preserving muscle mass during weight loss in sarcopenic obesity: a pilot study

Camajani Elisabetta , Feraco Alessandra , Basciani Sabrina , Caprio Massimiliano

The prevalence of sarcopenic obesity (SO) is increasing worldwide, posing important challenges to public health and national health care system, especially during the COVID pandemic. In subjects with SO, it is essential to reduce body weight preserving lean mass, in order to avoid a worsening of muscle function. Lifestyle modification with adequate nutrition and proper physical activity is essential to counteract SO progression. In accordance with the Position Statement of the...

Effects of bariatric surgery and dietary intervention on changes in insulin resistance and appetite hormones over the period of 3 years

Brzozowska Malgorzata , Isaacs Michelle , Bliuc Dana , Baldock Paul , Eisman John , White Chris , Greenfield Jerry , Center Jacqueline

Objectives: Little is known about the mechanisms responsible for improvement in insulin resistance after bariatric surgery. We examined the impact of three types of bariatric surgery, in comparison with dietary intervention (DIET) on concurrent changes in Homeostatic Model Assessment for Insulin Resistance (HOMA-IR) and appetite hormones over the period of 3 years. We also investigated the weight loss independent hormonal effects on insulin resistance.Me...

Introduction: Diabetes-related ketoacidosis (DKA) is an acute endocrine emergency requiring immediate diagnosis and management. Common misconception is that DKA is associated with type 1 diabetes only. We explored the proportion of people with type 2 diabetes, and compared the management, complications and outcome of DKA between people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.Methods: We conducted a retrospective study on people admitted with DKA across six hospi...
