Introduction: Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disease that is manifested by progressive loss of cognitive function. Neuroactive steroids and their metabolites have an important regulatory role in the nervous system, affect neuronal plasticity, response to stress, learning and memory and have a neuroprotective effect. One of the not fully elucidated risk factors for AD is impaired glucose tolerance/type 2 diabetes (T2D). It is well known that lower androgen...

Background and aims: Neuroactive steroids and their metabolites play an important regulatory role in the nervous system affecting the neuronal plasticity, stress response, learning, and memory. The aim of the study was to compare the steroid metabolome in AD patients and controls.Materials and methods: The study comprised of 48 AD patients (30 women and 18 men; age 73.8±9.54 years) and 33 matched controls (22 women and 11 men; age 68.2±5.94 yea...

Objectives: The identification of novel causing genes in thyroid carcinoma is very important in diagnosis and prognosis of the disease. Recently, The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) study found EIF1AX, CHEK2 and PPM1D genes as new minor causing genes in the papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) development. The goal of this study was to detect variants in these genes in PTC, follicular thyroid carcinoma (FTC) and anaplastic thyroid carcinoma (ATC) cohorts.<p class="a...
