Gene Expression Monitoring of Mononuclear Cells (MNC) Subpopulations and Immunological Status and Metabolome Defining of Healthy Population

2014-08-27 03:16:32 | BioPortfolio


Study on healthy volunteers is focusing on analysis of transcriptome profile fluctuations in healthy population in three mononuclear cell types (CD4+ cells, CD56+ cells and CD4+CD25+ cells)and should provide a reference for comparison with transcriptomic data of any disease state.Furthermore, metabolome and immunological status are defined on same samples.

Ventricular Tachyarrhythmia (VT) Storm, Gene Expression in Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) Patients With Electrical Storm

The purpose of the proposed pilot study is to identify factors which are associated with periods of high ventricular arrhythmia burden. This will be performed by analysis of gene expressi...

Frequency Of MCP-1 And CCR2 Gene Polymorphisms And Its Effect On Gene Expression And GCF MCP-1 Level In AgP

The aim of this study is to estimate genetic impact of MCP-1 -2518 and its receptor CCR2 -190 polymorphisms on AgP patients among Turkish individuals and whether MCP-1 genotype effects mRN...

The Effect of Exercise on Peripheral Blood Gene Expression in Angina

Regular exercise is known to produce significant health benefits and to reduce the risk of heart diseases, although how this benefit occurs is not well understood. White blood cells are kn...

Effects On Dihydrotestosterone Regulated Gene Expression In Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia Or Prostate Cancer

Dutasteride is used in the treatment of benign prostate enlargement (BPH).It inhibits conversion of testosterone (T) into the more potent dihydrotestosterone (DHT) to stop prostate (and po...

Prednisone Administration in Quiescent COPD Patients to Determine the Effect on Gene Expression

In this study, prednisone dose, day/time administration will be controlled in a stable COPD patient population to determine its effect on peripheral whole blood gene expression. This data ...

Independent association of whole blood miR-328 expression and polymorphism at 3'UTR of the PAX6 gene with myopia.

This study aimed to find associations between miR-328 expression in whole blood, polymorphism at 3'UTR of the PAX6 gene (paired box homeotic gene 6) and myopia.

Gene expression profile of peripheral blood mononuclear cells may contribute to the identification and immunological classification of breast cancer patients.

It has been reported that the gene expression profile of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) exhibits a unique gene expression signature in several types of cancer. In this study, we aimed to e...

Fatty liver is associated with blood pathways of inflammatory response, immune system activation and prothrombotic state in Young Finns Study.

Fatty liver (FL) disease is the most common type of chronic liver disease. We hypothesized that liver's response to the process where large droplets of triglyceride fat accumulate in liver cells is re...

Gene expression signature for detection of gastric cancer in peripheral blood.

Gastric cancer (stomach cancer) is the fifth most common malignancy and the third leading cause of cancer-associated mortality worldwide. Identifying gastric cancer patients at an early and curable st...

Blood-induced differential gene expression in Anopheles dirus evaluated using RNA sequencing.

Malaria parasites are transmitted through blood feeding by female Anopheline mosquitoes. Unveiling the blood-feeding process will improve understanding of vector biology. Anopheles dirus (Diptera: Cul...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Sampling of blood levels of the adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) by withdrawal of blood from the inferior petrosal sinus. The inferior petrosal sinus arises from the cavernous sinus and runs to the internal jugular vein. Sampling of blood at this level is a valuable tool in the differential diagnosis of Cushing disease, Cushing syndrome, and other adrenocortical diseases.

The expression of a gene in an abnormal place, or at an abnormal time in an organism. Ectopic Gene Expression is often induced artificially by genetic techniques.

A form of gene interaction whereby the expression of one gene interferes with or masks the expression of a different gene or genes. Genes whose expression interferes with or masks the effects of other genes are said to be epistatic to the effected genes. Genes whose expression is affected (blocked or masked) are hypostatic to the interfering genes.

Techniques used to add in exogenous gene sequence such as mutated genes; REPORTER GENES, to study mechanisms of gene expression; or regulatory control sequences, to study effects of temporal changes to GENE EXPRESSION.

A sampling methodology using small sample sizes when conducting surveys in small geographical or population-based areas or lots.
