One important hypothesis in primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) pathophysiology suggests that bacterial products from an inflamed leaky gut leads to biliary inflammation. We aimed to investigate whether circulating markers of bacterial translocation were associated with survival in a Norwegian PSC cohort.

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is characterized by uneven disease courses with various clinical outcomes. A few prognostic markers of disease severity may help stratify patients and identify those w...
Circulating endothelial microparticles (EMPs) and progenitor cells (PCs) are biological markers of endothelial function and endogenous repair capacity. The study was aimed to investigate whether COPD ...
Some studies suggested that proprotein convertase subtilisin kexin type 9 (PCSK9) is linked to liver steatosis severity and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). We aimed to assess whether circulating...
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common neurodegenerative disease and the early diagnosis and intervention are important for valid treatment of AD. However, there are few biomarkers for the diagno...
To investigate the correlation of circulating long non-coding RNA nuclear-enriched abundant transcript 1 (lncRNA NEAT1) expression with disease risk, severity, prognosis and inflammatory cytokine leve...
Investigators will measure skin barrier function using noninvasive devices and sample their skin and blood to study the expression anti-oxidative enzymes, skin barrier proteins and inflamm...
This study will identify a combination of disease severity markers (genetic, immunology, epigenetic, imaging) associated with disease severity and progression in a cohort of patients with ...
The goal is this study is to evaluate how the skin surface lipid composition is correlated with overall sebum production, barrier function, and inflammatory disease status. We hypothesize ...
Epidermis that lacks moisture and/or sebum presents as dry skin, which is often characterized by a pattern of fine lines, scaling and itching. In dry skin, the barrier function may be comp...
This study is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled bilateral study on the effect of moisturizing creams on skin barrier function. The hypothesis is that a new active emulsion has...
A severity of disease classification system designed to measure the severity of disease for patients aged 15 and over admitted to intensive care units.
An analysis comparing the allele frequencies of all available (or a whole GENOME representative set of) polymorphic markers in unrelated patients with a specific symptom or disease condition, and those of healthy controls to identify markers associated with a specific disease or condition.
The barrier between the perineurium of PERIPHERAL NERVES and the endothelium (ENDOTHELIUM, VASCULAR) of endoneurial CAPILLARIES. The perineurium acts as a diffusion barrier, but ion permeability at the blood-nerve barrier is still higher than at the BLOOD-BRAIN BARRIER.
The property of blood capillary ENDOTHELIUM that allows for the selective exchange of substances between the blood and surrounding tissues and through membranous barriers such as the BLOOD-AIR BARRIER; BLOOD-AQUEOUS BARRIER; BLOOD-BRAIN BARRIER; BLOOD-NERVE BARRIER; BLOOD-RETINAL BARRIER; and BLOOD-TESTIS BARRIER. Small lipid-soluble molecules such as carbon dioxide and oxygen move freely by diffusion. Water and water-soluble molecules cannot pass through the endothelial walls and are dependent on microscopic pores. These pores show narrow areas (TIGHT JUNCTIONS) which may limit large molecule movement.
The selectively permeable barrier, in the EYE, formed by the nonpigmented layer of the EPITHELIUM of the CILIARY BODY, and the ENDOTHELIUM of the BLOOD VESSELS of the IRIS. TIGHT JUNCTIONS joining adjacent cells keep the barrier between cells continuous.
