We report on a molecular cytogenetic characterization of 15q26 deletion and 2q37.1 duplication in a fetus presenting with intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR), diaphragmatic hernia, multicystic kidneys, left kidney pyelectasis, and clubfeet. A terminal 15q26 deletion and a terminal 2q duplication of at least 10 and 9 Mb, respectively, derived from a maternal translocation, were found. The 15q26 deletion represents a contiguous gene deletion syndrome mainly characterized by IUGR, congenital diaphragmatic hernia, and less frequently kidney defects...

Mitochondrial diabetes (MD) is a heterogeneous disorder characterized by a chronic hyperglycemia and is maternally transmitted. Syndromic MD is a subgroup of MD including diabetic microangiopathy and macroangiopathy, in addition to extrapancreatic disorder. MD is caused by genetic mutations and deletions affecting mitochondrial DNA. This mitochondrial damage initiates apoptosis. In this study, we hypothesized that functional polymorphisms in genes involved in apoptotic pathway could be associated with the development of apoptosis in MD disease and increased its risk...

Mycophenolate mofetil is a prodrug widely used in renal transplantation to prevent organ rejection. It is hydrolyzed to its active compound mycophenolic acid (MPA). MPA area under the curve (AUC0-12h) is considered the best pharmacokinetic parameter for the estimation of MPA exposition and for prediction of rejection. MPA-AUC requires several blood samples, making it impractical for clinical practice. Therefore, development of a limited sampling strategy (LSS) to estimate MPA AUC0-12h using three blood samples is very helpful for MPA individual dose adjustment...

Lithium (Li) is a relevant mood stabilizer metal for the treatment of bipolar disorder (BD), as it protects from both depression and mania and reduces the risk of suicide. However, Lihas some clinical concerns as a narrow therapeutic index requiring routine monitoring of the serum level. The present study was designed to analyze the cardio-toxic side effect of Li and the ability of grape seed and skin extract (GSSE) to protect the heart against such toxicity. After 30days of exposure to Li (0, 2, 5 and 100mg/kg bw) and prevention with GSSE (4000mg/kg bw), rats were killed by decapitation and their heart processed for Li-induced oxidative stress...

Glycosylated albumin is considered as a potentially accurate indicator of shorter-term average glucose concentration compared to the current standard HbA1c and as such, it's attracting the interest of the scientific community as a possible diagnosis marker for diabetic patients. The purpose of this paper is to achieve a better understanding of the glycation effect of albumin on its electrochemical properties. That is done through the use of Interdigitated gold microelectrodes (IDGE) as support in a label free impedimetric immunosensor for detection of human serum albumin detection in glycated (GA) and non-glycated (HSA) form...

The present study investigated the in vitro and the in vivo antioxidant capacities of Allium sativum (garlic) extract against deltamethrin-induced oxidative damage in rat's brain and kidney. The in vitro result showed that highest extraction yield was achieved with methanol (20.08%). Among the tested extracts, the methanol extract exhibited the highest total phenolic, flavonoids contents and antioxidant activity. The in vivo results showed that deltamethrin treatment caused an increase of the acetylcholinesterase level (AChE) in brain and plasma, the brain and kidney conjugated dienes and lipid peroxidation (LPO) levels as compared to control group...

Campylobacter and Arcobacter spp. are common causes of gastroenteritis in humans; these infections are commonly due to undercooked poultry. However, their virulence mechanism is still poorly understood. The aim of this study was to evaluate the presence of genotypic virulence markers in Campylobacter and Arcobacter species using PCR. The prevalence of virulence and cytolethal distending toxin (CDT) genes was estimated in 71 Campylobacteraceae isolates. PCR was used to detect the presence of virulence genes (iam, cadF, virB1, flaA, cdtA, cdtB, and cdtC) using specific primers for a total of 45 Campylobacter isolates, including 37 C...

Data on the individual nephrotoxic effects of imidacloprid (IMI) and gibberellic acid (GA3) are scarce. Moreover, there is a lack of information about their combined effects on the renal tissue. Our study investigated the effects of IMI and GA3 separately or together on rats kidney. IMI (64 mg/kg bw) was given for 3 weeks by gavage either individually or in combination with GA3 (200 mg/L) via drinking water. IMI associated or no with GA3 increased the levels of kidney malondialdehyde, advanced oxidation protein products, protein carbonyls and metallothionein, plasma creatinine, urea, blood urea nitrogen and lactate dehydrogenase activity...
