Correlation of hTERT Expression with Cervical Cytological Abnormalities and Human Papillomavirus Infection.

Pril (Makedon Akad Nauk Umet Odd Med Nauki) 2017 Dec;38(3):143-151

Department of Molecular Biology, Genetics and Microbiology, Institute of Biology, Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, Ss. Cyril and Methodius University, Skopje, Republic of Macedonia.

Telomerase Reverse Transcriptase (TERT) is the main catalytic sub-unit of telomerase, a reverse transcriptase enzyme. Telomerase expression is regulated at many levels, with numerous studies suggesting that up-regulation of human TERT gene (hTERT) at transcriptional level results in immortal cell phenotype associated with cancer. The aim of this study is to determine the correlation between hTERT expression and different cervical precursor lesions, as well as with cervical cancer in patients with confirmed Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection.

Clinical Proteomics in Kidney Disease: From Discovery to Clinical Application.

Pril (Makedon Akad Nauk Umet Odd Med Nauki) 2017 Dec;38(3):39-54

Mosaiques Diagnostics GmbH, Hannover, Germany.

Proteome analysis has been applied in multiple studies in the context of chronic kidney disease, aiming at improving our knowledge on the molecular pathophysiology of the disease. The approach is generally based on the hypothesis that proteins are key in maintaining kidney function, and disease is a clinical consequence of a significant change of the protein level. Knowledge on critical proteins and their alteration in disease should in turn enable identification of ideal biomarkers that could guide patient management. Read More

Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF)-23 increase is considered one of the earliest biochemical abnormalities in chronic kidney disease-mineral bone disorder (CKD-MBD). Furthermore, accumulating data have provided evidence of a link between increased FGF-23 levels and cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in CKD patients as well as in several other populations including cardiology patients and general population. The cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying the deleterious effect of FGF-23 on the cardiovascular system are not yet completely defined and are the focus of intense research. Read More

There are two points of interplay of chronic kidney (CKD) and peripheral arterial disease (PAD): CKD has been recognized as one of the main factors for presence of PAD, and PAD has been defined as a useful tool for risk stratification of CKD population. Peripheral arterial disease in patients with CKD is a frequent finding, even in those without symptoms. This review tends to describe determinants for occurrence of arterial disease in chronic kidney disease patients and necessity for its screening. Read More
