Sarantopoulou V , Philippou G , Vasileiou V , Lymberi P , Sarika L , Alevizaki M , Anastasiou E

Introduction: In the literature there are only three papers so far, addressing the impact of thyroid antibodies (Anti-TPO) on pregnancy in Type1 Diabetic Women (DM1) and these present conflicting results. The aim of the study is to evaluate the presence of Anti-TPO in DM1 pregnant women and whether these are related with differences in thyroid function, metabolic control and pregnancy outcome.Methods: In 78 DM1 women with singleton pregnancies Anti-TPO, ...

Introduction: GDM seasonability has been rarely addressed, with conflicting results. The aim of the study is to evaluate monthly GDM incidence in a large group of Greek women.Methods: 7618 pregnant women underwent 100g OGTT during the third trimester (GDM: ADA 2000 criteria). Seasonal, monthly GDM incidences and mean seasonal glucose levels during OGTT were calculated. Mean month temperature data were obtained from the Greek Meteorological Service.<p...

Estrogen receptor alpha PvuII polymorphism in female acute stroke patients: no associations with disease severity and short-term prognosis

Pappa T. , Vemmos K. , Mantzou E. , Stamatelopoulos K. , Saltiki K. , Anastasiou E. , Alevizaki M.

Introduction: Several studies have examined the association of the common PvuII polymorphism of the estrogen receptor alpha (ERĪ±) gene with the risk of stroke. Data linking the polymorphism with the severity and outcome of cerebrovascular disease is lacking. We looked for possible associations of the PvuII polymorphism with stroke severity and short-term prognosis in a cohort of female stroke patients.Patients-Methods: We studied 302 postmenopausal ...

The severity of cardiovascular disease in women is modified by estrogen receptor alpha polymorphic variants

Alevizaki M , Saltiki K , Kanakakis I , Cimponeriu A , Alevizaki C , Georgiou I , Anastasiou E

Impaired estrogen (E2) action is important for cardiovascular disease (CAD) in both men and women. Associations of CAD with estrogen receptor polymorphisms, which may influence sensitivity to E2 have been reported for men but have not been confirmed for women. The aim of the present study was to investigate the association of estrogen receptor common polymorphisms with the severity of coronary disease in women undergoing coronary angiography.Estrogen rec...
