Identification of placental genes linked to selective intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) in dichorionic twin pregnancies: gene expression profiling study.

Hum Genet 2019 Jun 30;138(6):649-659. Epub 2019 Apr 30.

Department of Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases, Polish Mother's Memorial Hospital-Research Institute in Lodz, Lodz, Poland.

A linkage of dichorionic (DC) twin pregnancies with selective intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) to alterations in placental gene expression is unclear. The aim of the study was to identify placental genes related to hypoxia, adipogenesis and human growth which may contribute to IUGR development. The study group (IUGR/AGA) comprised dichorionic (DC) twin pregnancies, where the weight of the twins differed by > 15%; in addition, one twin was small for gestational age (< 10th percentile-SGA) (IUGR) while the other was appropriate for gestational age (> 10th percentile-AGA).

Do Third Molars Contribute to Systemic Inflammation? Results From a Population-Based Study From Northeast Germany.

J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Aug 27;77(8):1541-1547. Epub 2019 Mar 27.

Associate Professor, Institute for Community Medicine, University Medicine Greifswald, Greifswald, Germany.

Purpose: Erupted and impacted third molars have been reported to contribute to systemic inflammation. This study investigated the systemic effect of third molars on serum levels of inflammatory parameters and on inflammatory messenger peptide hormones in a general population sample.

Materials And Methods: Data of 2,151 participants from the Study of Health in Pomerania were included in this study. Read More

First trimester placental vascularization and angiogenetic factors are associated with adverse pregnancy outcome.

Pregnancy Hypertens 2018 Jul 11;13:87-94. Epub 2018 Apr 11.

Laboratory of Neuroimmunology and Developmental Origins of Disease (NIDOD), Wilhelmina Children's Hospital, University Medical Centre Utrecht, 3584 EA Utrecht, The Netherlands.

Background: Hypertensive disorders, fetal growth restriction and preterm birth are major obstetrical complications and are related to impaired placentation. Early identification of impaired placentation can advance clinical care by preventing or postpone adverse pregnancy outcome.

Objectives: Determine whether sonographic assessed placental vascular development and concomitant changes in inflammation- and/or angiogenesis-related serumproteins differ in the first trimester between uncomplicated pregnancies and pregnancies with adverse outcome. Read More

Prospective, randomized, single-blind comparison of effects of 6 months' treatment with atorvastatin versus pravastatin on leptin and angiogenic factors in patients with coronary artery disease.

Heart Vessels 2012 Jul 4;27(4):337-43. Epub 2011 Jun 4.

Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Cardiology and Memorial Heart Center, Iwate Medical University School of Medicine, Uchimaru 19-1, Morioka, Iwate 020-8505, Japan.

Leptin has been reported to exert an atherosclerotic effect by regulating expression of angiogenic factors that have been implicated in the pathogenesis of coronary artery disease (CAD). The purpose of this study was to investigate whether lipid-lowering therapy (LLT) with statins could affect leptin levels and angiogenic factors in patients with CAD. This study included 76 patients with CAD and 15 subjects without CAD (non-CAD). Read More

[Adipose tissue as an endocrine organ].

Srp Arh Celok Lek 2005 Sep-Oct;133(9-10):441-5

The traditional function attributed to white adipose tissue of energy storage in the form of triglycerides has been challenged by results from recent studies, showing that adipose tissue is, in fact, a highly active metabolic and endocrine organ. A radical change in perspective followed the discovery of a large number of proteins secreted from white adipocytes, such as leptin, resistin, adiponectin, adipsin, acylation-stimulating protein, angiotensinogen, tumour necrosis factor a, interleukin-6, retinol-binding protein, plasminogen activator inhibitor-1, tissue factor, fasting-induced adipose factor, fibrinogen/angiopoetin-related protein, and metallothionein. The effects of specific proteins may be either autocrine or paracrine, meaning that they might act in adipose tissue itself or in more distant target tissues. Read More
