Background: Endothelial dysfunction is thought to be a key event in the development of atherosclerosis. Demonstration of increased endoglin expression in atherosclerotic plaques suggested participation of endoglin in atherogenesis. Endoglin expression was also related to nitric oxide (NO) production in endothelium.Objective and hypotheses: Aim of the study was to evaluate the subclinical atherosclerosis in adolescents with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM)...

Background: The variable presence of adrenal insufficiency (AI) due to hypocortisolemia (HC) in patients with thalassemia is well established; however, the prevalence of adrenocortical hypofunction (ACH) in the zona glomerulosa and zona reticularis of the adrenal cortex is unknown.Objective and hypotheses: To establish the prevalence of ACH, we examined the cortisol response to 1 μg- and 250 μg- ACTH tests, plasma aldosterone (A)/plasma renin a...

Background: Primary adrenal insufficiency other than congenital adrenal hyperplasia (non-CAH PAI) is very uncommon in children but associated with a variety of molecular defects. Biosynthesis of adrenocortical hormones is reduced although the relation of steroid profiles with underlying molecular etiology is not yet studied.Objective: Investigation of clinical and steroid hormone profiles of a multicenter cohort of child...
