The investigators will address the hypothesis that portal hypertension is mediated in part by bacterial or endotoxin translocation and the production of inflammatory mediators (tumor necro...
This study will determine whether supplementation of probiotic Lactobacillus Rhamnosus GG improves psychological status in middle age and older adults through a 12-week, randomized, double...
The main objective of the study is to investigate the effect of probiotic supplementation on lactose maldigestion.
Aim: to investigate the role of inflammation and auto-immunity in pulmonary arterial hypertension by using the profile of volatile organic compounds. Hypothesis: first, the investigators ...
Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a consequence of an increase in pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR), pulmonary blood flow, pulmonary venous pressure, or a combination of these elements. Pul...
To verify the prevalence of systemic arterial hypertension (SAH) and to identify possible early predictors of SAH at ages 2 and 4 years in very low birth weight (VLBW) infants.
Derangements of the gut microbiome have been linked to increased systemic inflammation and central nervous system disorders, including schizophrenia. This systematic review thus aimed to investigate t...
Proteins mainly expressed in normal lungs and significantly changed in lungs exposed to systemic-to-pulmonary shunts might be promising targets for pulmonary arterial hypertension induced by congenita...
This study aimed to evaluate the level of plasma Cysteine rich 61 (Cyr61) in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE)-associated pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) patients, and to explore the diagnostic...
Patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) due to systemic sclerosis (SSc) have high mortality. Left ventricular (LV) peak global longitudinal strain (GLS) is decreased in SSc. It is unknown ...
Persistently high systemic arterial BLOOD PRESSURE. Based on multiple readings (BLOOD PRESSURE DETERMINATION), hypertension is currently defined as when SYSTOLIC PRESSURE is consistently greater than 140 mm Hg or when DIASTOLIC PRESSURE is consistently 90 mm Hg or more.
Common occlusive arterial disease which is caused by ATHEROSCLEROSIS. It is characterized by lesions in the innermost layer (ARTERIAL INTIMA) of arteries including the AORTA and its branches to the extremities. Risk factors include smoking, HYPERLIPIDEMIA, and HYPERTENSION.
Blockage of an artery due to passage of a clot (THROMBUS) from a systemic vein to a systemic artery without its passing through the lung which acts as a filter to remove blood clots from entering the arterial circulation. Paradoxical embolism occurs when there is a defect that allows a clot to cross directly from the right to the left side of the heart as in the cases of ATRIAL SEPTAL DEFECTS or open FORAMEN OVALE. Once in the arterial circulation, a clot can travel to the brain, block an artery, and cause a STROKE.
Increased pressure within the cranial vault. This may result from several conditions, including HYDROCEPHALUS; BRAIN EDEMA; intracranial masses; severe systemic HYPERTENSION; PSEUDOTUMOR CEREBRI; and other disorders.
A birth defect characterized by the narrowing of the AORTA that can be of varying degree and at any point from the transverse arch to the iliac bifurcation. Aortic coarctation causes arterial HYPERTENSION before the point of narrowing and arterial HYPOTENSION beyond the narrowed portion.
