Autotaxin level in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus or cardiovascular disease

Duran Iffet Dağdelen , Gulcelik Neşe Ersoz

Introduction: Autotaxin (ATX)[Ectonucleotide Pyrophosphatase /Phosphodiesterase family member 2 (ENPP2)] is a lysophospholipase D stimulating cell migration, metastasis and angiogenesis. ATX hydrolizes lysophosphatidylcholine (LPC) and produces bioactive lysophosphatidic acid(LPA). There are some clues about ATX–LPA pathway modulation may unlock the gate of metabolic derangement including diabetes formation or may impact formation of cardiovascular diseases via LPA’s...

Association of c-reactive protein with insulin resistance in first degree relatives of diabetic patients

Gulcelik NE , Serter R , Ozkaya M , Aral Y

Objective: C-reactive protein (CRP) is a nontraditional risk factor that predicts cardiovascular disease but its relationship between diabetes and insulin resistance is not well documented. We evaluated the association of CRP levels and insulin resistance in a group of patients at high risk for diabetes.Materials and methods: In this study we evaluated 22 first degree relatives of type 2 diabetic patients with impaired glucose tolerance test (Group 1) an...

Is there a gender difference in clinically nonfunctional pituitary adenomas?

Duran Iffet Dağdelen , Gulcelik Neşe Ersoz , Berker Dilek , Guler Serdar

Introduction: Clinically nonfunctioning pituitary adenomas (NFPA) are the most common pituitary tumor type. They are usually recognized after they cause symptoms especially when tumor size increases and eventually invades adjacent structures. Nevertheless the discovery would also be accidental. In the literature some kind of gender difference is reported in NFA’s behavioral results such as pituitary axis deficits or consequences of surgery however they resulted with contr...
