Athens, Greece. In Expert Rev Respir Med, 11 Dec 2015
Patients underwent serum anti-GM-CSF antibodies, disease severity score (DSS), Doppler transthoracic echocardiograph, glucose, thyroid hormones, lipids, troponin and pro-Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) examination.
Gene expression profiles of some cytokines, growth factors, receptors, and enzymes (GM-CSF, IFNγ, MMP-2, IGF-II, EGF, TGF-β, IGF-IIR) during pregnancy in the cat uterus.
Burdur, Turkey. In Theriogenology, 23 Nov 2015
In the present study, the gene expression profiles of factors associated with pregnancy such as EGF, transforming growth factor beta, granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor, interferon gamma, insulin-like growth factor 2, insulin-like growth factor 2 receptor, and matrix metalloproteinase 2 were analyzed in uterine tissues of female cats.
Genome-wide transcription profiling in neutrophils in acute respiratory distress syndrome.
Cambridge, United Kingdom. In Lancet, Mar 2015
METHODS: GeneChip Affymetrix oligonucleotide arrays were used to assess global transcriptional profiles in highly pure PMNs from ventilated patients fulfilling the Berlin ARDS definition (n=10), in freshly isolated PMNs from age-matched and sex-matched healthy volunteers (n=10), and in healthy volunteer PMNs exposed in vitro to recombinant human granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor (rhGM-CSF) (1 ng/mL for 6 h).
