BACKGROUND AND AIM: Patients with Gaucher disease type 1 (GD1) show an altered lipid profile and a certain degree of insulin resistance, which might contribute to cholelithiasis (CL) and could possibly be associated with ABCG5/ABCG8 gene variants. We aimed to investigate the prevalence of CL in Caucasian adult patients with GD1 and the possible risk factors, including gene variants of the ABCG5/ABCG8 genes. METHODS: 61 Caucasian patients with GD1 (38 female/23male), aged 18-62 years and 61 healthy subjects matched for age, gender and BMI, without CL, for comparison of lipid profiles...

OBJECTIVE: To establish the frequency of the c.301_302 delAG mutation of the PROP1 gene in Romanian patients with multiple pituitary hormone deficiency (MPHD). SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Somatic assessment, hormonal test, bone age, magnetic resonance imaging of the pituitary gland, and molecular diagnosis were performed in 26 patients with MPHD (7 patients with familial form of MPHD and 19 patients with sporadic form of MPHD). RESULTS: The c.301_302delAG mutation was detected in the homozygous state in 10 patients belonging to 5 unrelated families (7 patients with familial history of MPHD and 3 patients with sporadic form of MPHD)...

BACKGROUND: Dyslipidemia in Gaucher disease includes reduced total, low-density lipoprotein (LDL)-, and high-density lipoprotein (HDL)-cholesterol (C). No prospective analysis of lipid profile changes in treatment-naïve patients under enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) is available. METHODS: We analyzed lipid profile changes during ERT in a prospective controlled manner. Twelve treatment-naïve patients, Gaucher disease type 1 (GD1), 29.5 ± 12.9 years, 4M/8F. Diagnosis was made by enzymatic measurement and mutational analysis...

OBJECTIVE: In Central and South-Eastern European countries, the most frequent mutation types responsible for congenital nonsyndromic sensorineural hearing loss (NSHL) are c.35delG and p.W24X (15-55.8% and 2.5-4.3%, respectively). The aim of the study was to determine for the first time in Romania the prevalence of c.35delG and p.W24X mutations in patients with NSHL. MATERIAL: 75 unrelated children with NSHL from Transylvania (North-West Romania). METHODS: a...

OBJECTIVE: It remains controversial if glucocorticoid replacement therapy impairs bone mineral density (BMD) in young patients with 21-hydroxylase deficiency. We aimed to analyze the impact of treatment variables, phenotype and genotype on BMD and bone metabolism in these patients. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study. MEASUREMENTS: Twenty-eight Caucasian patients with classical 21-hydroxylase deficiency (5-39 years). Clinical parameters, hormonal status, osteocalcin (OC), C-terminal telopeptide of type I collagen (CTX), genotype and lumbar BMD (Z-scores) were assessed...
