The integration of the immune and endocrine systems through a network of signaling molecules-including cytokines and hormones-produces a consequent modulatory effect on immune function. In this study we aimed to comparatively evaluate the serum concentrations of dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEA-S) and cortisol in patients with allergic rhinitis and healthy control subjects.

This study aimed to explore the association between growth differentiation factor-15 (GDF-15), a stress-induced factor, and sex hormones in male patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). In this st...
Serum periostin levels have been reported to be an indicator of Th2 inflammation in asthmatic patients.
Patients with sarcoidosis often experience fatigue and psychological distress, but little is known about the etiology of these conditions. While serum and saliva steroid hormones are used to monitor a...
Prostate specific antigen (PSA) is regulated by steroid hormones, such as testosterone, the serum levels of which are altered in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD).This pilot study compared serum ...
Previous studies have used serum periostin levels as a biomarker of Th2-driven inflammatory responses. However, no population-based study has yet examined the association of serum periostin levels wit...
1. To investigate whether the auditory stimulation causes changes in hormones levels (cortisol+prolactin) during general anesthesia. 2. To determine if there is a correlation betwe...
The medicinal properties of pinecones have been used for years to treat a variety of illnesses. In the mouse model, an extract of pine cones, poly-phenylpropanoid-polysaccharide complex (P...
One of the proposed mechanisms in CU is autoimmunity. It was shown by a positive response to autologous serum skin test (ASST)in almost half of chronic urticaria (CU) patients. IL-18 also ...
Approximately, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) occurs in 8% of the adult population over time. Exposure to traumatic events increases the risk of poor physical health and often lead...
To assess the associations of serum sex hormones with the presence and progression of subclinical atherosclerosis.
An inherited autosomal dominant trait characterized by abnormally elevated levels of total serum THYROXINE; (T4) in euthyroid patients with abnormal SERUM ALBUMIN that binds T4 with enhanced affinity. The serum levels of free T4, free T3, and TSH are normal. It is one of several T4 abnormalities produced by non-thyroid disorder. This condition is due to mutations of the ALB gene on CHROMOSOME 4.
A pyrrole and heptanoic acid derivative,HYDROXYMETHYLGLUTARYL-COA REDUCTASE INHIBITOR (statin), and ANTICHOLESTEREMIC AGENT that is used to reduce serum levels of LDL-CHOLESTEROL; APOLIPOPROTEIN B; AND TRIGLYCERIDES and to increase serum levels of HDL-CHOLESTEROL in the treatment of HYPERLIPIDEMIAS and prevention of CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES in patients with multiple risk factors.
An inherited autosomal recessive trait, characterized by peripheral resistance to THYROID HORMONES and the resulting elevation in serum levels of THYROXINE and TRIIODOTHYRONINE. This syndrome is caused by mutations of gene THRB encoding the THYROID HORMONE RECEPTORS BETA in target cells. HYPOTHYROIDISM in these patients is partly overcome by the increased thyroid hormone levels.
Hypersensitivity reaction (ALLERGIC REACTION) to fungus ASPERGILLUS in an individual with long-standing BRONCHIAL ASTHMA. It is characterized by pulmonary infiltrates, EOSINOPHILIA, elevated serum IMMUNOGLOBULIN E, and skin reactivity to Aspergillus antigen.
A tetrameric protein, molecular weight between 50,000 and 70,000, consisting of 4 equal chains, and migrating on electrophoresis in 3 fractions more mobile than serum albumin. Its concentration ranges from 7 to 33 per cent in the serum, but levels decrease in liver disease.
Stress is caused by your perception of situations around you and then the reaction of your body to them. The automatic stress response to unexpected events is known as 'fight or flight'. Discovered by Walter Cannon in 1932, it is the release of h...
The term allergy is used to describe a response, within the body, to a substance, which is not necessarily harmful in itself, but results in an immune response and a reaction that causes symptoms and disease in a predisposed person, which in turn can cau...
Endocrine disorders are grouped into two categories: hormone imbalance - when a gland produces too much or too little of an endocrine hormone development of lesions (such as nodules or tumors) in the endocrine system, which may or may not affect...
