Comparison of risk assessment strategies for not-high-risk pulmonary embolism.
Mainz, Germany. In Eur Respir J, Feb 2016
UNASSIGNED: We compared the prognostic performance of the 2014 European Society of Cardiology (ESC) risk stratification algorithm with the previous 2008 ESC algorithm, the Bova score and the modified FAST score (based on a positive heart-type fatty acid-binding protein (H-FABP) test, syncope and tachycardia, modified using high-sensitivity troponin T instead of H-FABP) in 388 normotensive pulmonary embolism patients included in a single-centre cohort study.Overall, 25 patients (6.4%) had an adverse 30-day outcome.
Metabolic functions of FABPs--mechanisms and therapeutic implications.
Boston, United States. In Nat Rev Endocrinol, Oct 2015
In this Review we discuss the roles and regulation of both intracellular and extracellular FABP actions, highlighting new insights that might direct drug discovery efforts and opportunities for management of chronic metabolic diseases.
Role of the gut in lipid homeostasis.
Saint Louis, United States. In Physiol Rev, 2012
We review the pathways and genetic regulation of chylomicron assembly, the role of dominant restriction points such as microsomal triglyceride transfer protein and apolipoprotein B, and the role of CD36, l-FABP, and other proteins in formation of the prechylomicron complex.
