Sarcopenia is the decline of muscle mass and strength with age. Evidence suggests that oxidative stress and molecular inflammation play important roles in age-related muscle atrophy. The two factors may interfere with the balance between protein synthesis and breakdown, cause mitochondrial dysfunction, and induce apoptosis. Sarcopenia, inflammation and oxidative stress is highly prevalent in hemodialysis patients and may contribute to mortality. The copy number of mitochondrial...
Compelling epidemiological evidence indicates that alterations of mitochondrial DNA, including mutations and abnormal content of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), are associated with the initiation and development of chronic lymphoblastic leukemia (CLL).The aim of this study was to explore association between mtDNA content in peripheral blood cells could be used as a risk predictor for CLL.
The present study has the objective to study whether the mitochondrial DNA copy number values that can be generated when human embryos are analyzed for chromosomal content before embryo transfer correlates with the actual number of mitochondria as well as their energy requirements of the human embryo.
Finding a predictive biomarker for IAI could improve the clinical outcome for the mother and the neonate. The aim of this study is to quantify the copy number of circulating cell-free mitochondrial DNA in maternal serum and the placenta compared to controls.the investigators hypothesise that circulating cell-free mitochondrial DNA levels could help predict the likelihood of early inflammation in IAI. In addition, mitochondrial DNA could be a promotor triggering the pathogenesis...
Compelling epidemiological evidence indicates that alterations of mitochondrial DNA, including mutations and abnormal content of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), are associated with the initiation and development of cardiovascular disease. This study was undertaken to investigate whether mtDNA copy number in peripheral blood cells could be used as a risk predictor for coronary heart disease.
Individuals with low copy numbers of salivary amylase gene have lower salivary amylase levels and might therefore have decreased capacity to metabolize starch into glucose. We will in a randomized crossover meal study examine the postprandial response of high-starch meals in individuals with either low or high copy number of the salivary amylase gene.
This protocol (in patients aged 65 and over suffering from previously untreated multiple myeloma), represents the first worldwide, pharmacogenomic study on this scale in terms of the number of patients analyzed and the implemented molecular diagnostics resources. The goal is to be able to identify patients who will best respond to the study treatments or experience the fewest associated side effects and improve prognosis, in order to optimize care management in multiple myeloma...
The study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Apatinib for later treatment of patients(after second-line treatment for locally recurrent or metastatic nasopharyngeal carcinoma), including overall survival (OS), distant metastasis-free survival (DMFS) and locoregional relapse-free survival (LRRFS); the relationship between EBV DNA copy number and survival after radiotherapy or radiochemotherapy; Quality of life score (QoL); evaluation of drug safety.
Patients with confirmed mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome 2 (thymidine kinase 2 [TK2] deficiency) have reduced levels of nucleotides (deoxythymidine monophosphate and deoxycytidine monophosphate) for mitochondrial DNA synthesis. This results in mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome (i.e less number of functional mitochondrial DNA). Patients with confirmed TK2 deficiency will be treated with open label deoxythymidine (dThd) and deoxycytidine (dCyt), which are nucleotide precur...
This is a phase II trial of regorafenib in patients with metastatic melanoma harboring c-Kit mutations and/or amplifications of c-Kit gene copy number. The primary end point is disease control rate (DCR), and the secondary end points are safety, response rate (RR), progression free survival (PFS), and overall survival (OS).
It has been suggested that mitochondrial dysfunction might play a role in the development of diabetic cardiomyopathy. From animal studies, it has been suggested that an altered PPAR and PGC1 expression is involved in the reduced cardiac mitochondrial function, however human data on cardiac mitochondrial function and PPAR regulation is scarce. The latter is due to the fact that there is no validated measurement for assessing cardiac mitochondrial function non-invasively in vivo....
In this, here we want to present a new method for analysis variation in gene copy number for patients and carriers of SMA. This is a relative quantitation method and, therefore, relies on the inclusion of one or more internal control or reference sequences; quantitation of DNA is relative to this reference sequence of known copy number. A peak height from within a potentially duplicated or deleted target region is amplified simultaneously with a disomic reference region in a mu...
Mitochondrial diseases are complex diseases with great clinical and genetic heterogeneity and their diagnosis is difficult. The Medical Genetics Department includes among its activities the diagnosis of these diseases. It has been a reference centre for mitochondrial diseases at the national level since 2006 and was recently approved under the call for projects "European Reference Network (ERN) for rare diseases", EURO-NMD, supported by the Nice University Hospital. The routin...
Mitochondria are important parts of the cell that are responsible for producing energy. The amount of energy they produce depends on how much energy the body needs to function and this energy production can be severely impaired in people with mitochondrial disease. Symptoms of mitochondrial disease vary widely but usually involve the brain, nerves and muscles, as these are tissues that need a lot of energy. Mitochondrial disorders affect 1 in 5000 of the UK population and there...
Mitochondrial disorders are a group of inherited disorders causing malfunctional mitochondria. Mitochondria are found in every cell of the body, and the disorders therefore give symptoms from every tissue, especially those with high energy needs as the brain, heart and muscles. The disorders are highly disabling. The aim of the study is to investigate the relation between muscle strength and contractile cross sectional area (CCSA) in the leg of patients affected by mitochondri...
An association between insulin resistance and mitochondrial dysfunction has been observed in aging, T2D, and in offspring of patients with T2D. It remains to be determined whether pharmacological agents that enhance insulin sensitivity improve muscle mitochondrial function. If these insulin sensitizers improve muscle mitochondrial functions, there are potential therapeutic opportunities to use these drugs to improve mitochondrial dysfunction such as sarcopenia of aging or obe...
Our central hypothesis is that oral CoQ10 is a safe and effective treatment for children with inborn errors of mitochondrial energy metabolism due to defects in specific respiratory chain (RC) complexes or mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) mutations, and that this beneficial action is reflected in improved motor and neurobehavioral function and in quality of life.
Mitochondrial disorders are a group of inherited disorders causing malfunctional mitochondria. Mitochondria are found in every cell of the body, and the disorders therefore give symptoms from every tissue, especially those with high energy needs as the brain, heart and muscles. The symptoms are often unspecific in terms of muscle weakness and fatigue, which delays the first contact to the doctor and further delays the diagnosis. The aim of this study is to investigate if it is...
This pilot study established a minimally invasive biopsy technique to obtain high-quality MTrP tissue samples to evaluate mitochondrial function via high-resolution respirometry.
Mitochondrial Diseases are rare, progressive, multi-system, often-early fatal disorders affecting both children and adults. KH176 is a novel chemical entity currently under development for the treatment of inherited mitochondrial diseases, including MELAS (Mitochondrial Encephalomyopathy, Lactic acidosis, and Stroke-like episodes), MIDD (Maternally Inherited Diabetes and Deafness), Leigh's Disease and LHON (Leber's Hereditary Optic Neuropathy). The current Proof of Concept stud...
Mitochondrial myopathies include various inherited diseases that are caused by damage to the mitochondria, energy-producing structures that fuel the body's processes. The main symptoms are muscle weakness, reduced muscle mass, and difficulty with exercising. The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of exercise training versus inactivity on mitochondrial function in muscle and muscle performance in people with mitochondrial myopathies.
Mitochondrial diseases are a genetically heterogeneous group of disorders caused by mutations or deletions in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) displaying a wide range of severity and phenotypes. These diseases may be inherited from the mother (mitochondrial inheritance) or non-inherited. The latter are ultra-rare pediatric diseases caused by a mutation or deletion of mtDNA, which develop into a systemic multi organ disease and eventually death. MNV-BM-BLD is a therapeutic process for ...
