Context: Turner syndrome (TS) predisposes to obesity and related disorders being a part of the metabolic syndrome. As TS population is at a higher risk of cardiovascular diseases research for laboratory markers of metabolic complications is ongoing. Based on our previous observation special significance is attributed to MMPs (matrix metalloproteinases), their inhibitors TIMPs and neurotrophic factors, such as BDNF (Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor) and GDNF (...

Utility of BDNF and MMP-1 as Markers of Cardiometabolic Risk in Turner Syndrome Girls

Błaszczyk Ewa , Miłosz Lorek , Francuz Tomasz , Gieburowska Joanna , Gawlik Aneta

Background: It remains unclear whether cardiometabolic and vascular risks in Turner syndrome (TS) are the consequence of unidentified intrinsic factors or, conversely, the result of modifiable risk factors, such as overweight. New markers that could explain the pathogenesis of metabolic complications are under investigation.Objective: The comparison of the selected biochemical cardiometabolic risk markers between TS patients and healthy controls.<p c...

Brain-derived neurotrophic factor and matrix metalloproteinases as markers of metabolic status in girls with Turner syndrome.

Błaszczyk Ewa , Gawlik Jakub , Gieburowska Joanna , Tokarska Agnieszka , Francuz Tomasz , Gawlik Aneta ,

Background: Turner syndrome (TS) predisposes to obesity and related metabolic disorders and presents a high risk of congenital heart defects. Growth hormone (GH) treatment used in TS girls also affects the parameters of carbohydrate-lipid metabolism. Thus, the search for new markers that could be early predictors of metabolic disorders seems to be justified.Objective and Method: The assessment and comparison of MMP-1, MMP-2, MMP-9 (matri...
