Polymorphisms of α1-antitrypsin and Interleukin-6 genes and the progression of hepatic cirrhosis in patients with a hepatitis C virus infection

lower levels of IL-6 [7,8]. α1-Antitrypsin (A1AT) is an acute phase protein produced primarily in the hepatocytes. The blood concentration of A1AT increases three to four times in response to inflammation or tissue injury [ 9 ]. Interestingly, A1AT deficiency is associated with chronic liver disease and pulmonary emphysema [ 10 ]. So far, over 100 variants have been discovered in the A1AT gene [ 11 ]. The wild type M allele is associated with normal concentrations of A1AT in the serum, while the S allele (Glu264Val, rs17580) and Z allele (Glu342Lys, rs28929474

The LRP1 gene polymorphism is associated with increased risk of metabolic syndrome prevalence in the Serbian population

Introduction During the past 50 years, numerous dramatic changes in human environment as well as behavioral and lifestyle changes, have led to a global increase in obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Both diseases are reaching epidemic proportions in developed and developing countries and their co-occurrence represents one of the biggest health threats in the 21st century [ 1 , 2 ]. Metabolic syndrome (MetS) has been described as a cluster of risk factors for cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) and T2DM, primarily due to the existence of abdominal

Genetic polymorphisms of hemostatic factors and thrombotic risk in non BCR-ABL myeloproliferative neoplasms: A pilot study

, such as ischemic stroke, myocardial infarction, transient ischemic attack, unstable angina, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) of the legs, thrombosis of abdominal veins, and thrombosis of the pulmonary artery, were defined as vascular events. All comparisons were performed between the thrombosis and the thrombosis-free groups for all ET, PV and PMF patients. This study was conducted with the permission of the regional biomedical research ethics committee and in accordance with good clinical and laboratory practices and the principles of the Declaration of Helsinki.

The past and present infections (mumps, high fever, tuberculosis, lung infections, reproductive tract infections and antisperm antibodies) and testicular or abdominal injury/surgery or vasectomy and Y-chromosome micro-deletions, were also excluded. Moreover, men (both fertile and infertile) with hormonal disorders [tri-iodothyronine (T 3 ), tetra-iodothyronine (T 4 ), thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH
