Results from a randomized, phase 3, open-label, active-controlled trial- STRUCTURE-showed that in patients previously treated with bisphosphonates, romosozumab led to gains in hip BMD, which were not observed with teriparatide. This post hoc analysis investigated the comparative utility of early changes in P...

Growth differentiation factor-15 predicts poor survival after cardiac arrest.

Early prognostication in post-cardiac arrest (CA) patients remains challenging and biomarkers have evolved as helpful tools in risk assessment. The stress-response cytokine growth differentiation factor-15 (GDF-15) is dramatically up-regulated during various kinds of tissue injury and predicts outcome in many pathological conditions. We aimed to assess the predictive value of circulating GDF-15 in post-CA patients.

The threshold of alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) for the diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has become a pressing health problem facing the world today due to its high morbidity, high mortality, and late discovery. As a diagnostic criteria of HCC, the exact threshold of Alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) is controversial. Therefore, this study was aimed to systematically estimate the performance of AFP in diagnosing HCC and to clarify its optimal threshold.

Serum miR-483-5p and miR-133a as Biomarkers for Diagnosis of Hepatocellular Carcinoma Post-Hepatitis C Infection in Egyptian Patients.

Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common malignant tumors with high incidence and mortality rate. Identification of new, reliable and non invasive biomarkers are important to improve early detection of hepatocellular carcinoma. Circulating micro-RNAs are abundant and play a central role in different biological process of hepatocellular carcinoma. We aimed to evaluate miR-483-5p and miR-133a as potential biomarkers for diagnosis of hepato-cellular carcinoma in cirrhotic patients post chronic ...

A rat model of placental inflammation explains the unexplained elevated maternal serum alpha-fetoprotein associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes.

It has been reported in numerous studies that elevated maternal serum alpha-fetoprotein (MS-AFP) is associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes (APO), such as pre-eclampsia, stillbirth, preterm birth and fetal growth restriction. However, the mechanism linking elevated MS-AFP and APO is obscure. In this study, we tried to explore the mechanism by using pregnant rats.

Acetylation of alpha-fetoprotein promotes hepatocellular carcinoma progression.

Alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) is a well-established biomarker for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Here, we investigated the acetylation state of AFP in vivo. AFP acetylation was regulated by the acetyltransferase CBP and the deacetylase SIRT1. Acetylation of AFP at lysines 194, 211, and 242 increased the stability of AFP protein by decreasing its ubiquitination and proteasomal degradation. AFP acetylation promoted its oncogenic role by blocking binding to the phosphatase PTEN and the pro-apoptotic protein caspase...
