Correlation Between Circulating Resistin and Vascular Inflammation Measured by 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) Positron Emission Tomography (PET) (18FDG-PET)

2014-08-27 03:12:42 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Vascular inflammation is a key factor in both the pathogenesis and outcome of atherosclerosis.Resistin was shown to induce vascular endothelial dysfunction and vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation.

18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) is a promising tool for identifying and quantifying vascular inflammation within atherosclerotic plaques.Therefore, the purpose of the study is to demonstrate the correlation between circulating resistin and vascular inflammation detected by 18FDG-PET in obese persons.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Studies in which the presence or absence of disease or other health-related variables are determined in each member of the study population or in a representative sample at one particular time. This contrasts with LONGITUDINAL STUDIES which are followed over a period of time.

Studies designed to examine associations, commonly, hypothesized causal relations. They are usually concerned with identifying or measuring the effects of risk factors or exposures. The common types of analytic study are CASE-CONTROL STUDIES; COHORT STUDIES; and CROSS-SECTIONAL STUDIES.

Descriptive anatomy based on three-dimensional imaging (IMAGING, THREE-DIMENSIONAL) of the body, organs, and structures using a series of computer multiplane sections, displayed by transverse, coronal, and sagittal analyses. It is essential to accurate interpretation by the radiologist of such techniques as ultrasonic diagnosis, MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING, and computed tomography (TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED). (From Lane & Sharfaei, Modern Sectional Anatomy, 1992, Preface)

A value equal to the total volume flow divided by the cross-sectional area of the vascular bed.

A microscope with a light source that can be projected into a linear beam. It allows cross-sectional viewing of the AQUEOUS HUMOR; CONJUNCTEIVA; CORNEA; EYELIDS; IRIS; and lens (see LENS, EYE) of the eye.
