Association of Fasting Triglycerides to High-Density Lipoprotein Ratio with Risk for Metabolic Disorders in Children

Efthymia Katsa Maria , Ioannidis Anastasios , Zyga Sofia , Sachlas Athanasios , Tsironi Maria , Paola Rojas Gil Andrea

Background: Atherosclerosis begins in childhood and progresses silently. Triglycerides/HDL ratio(TG/HDL) is a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases.Objective and hypotheses: To investigate TG/HDL as possible predictive factor for metabolic disorders in children.Method: Descriptive correlation, with 110 children (6–12 years old) in Sparta, Greece. Anthropometric and biochemical analyzes were performed.R...

Background: Pediatric hypertension is a risk factor for adult hypertension and cardiovascular disease which entails the necessity of early detection.Aim: To investigate how nutrition habits are correlated with systolic blood pressure (SBP) in health children and adolescent population.Methods: 1395 children and adolescents from Greece were enrolled to participate in the research. A specially designed questionnaire regarding to eatin...

Serum Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) concentrations and Reduced Appendix Testis Estrogen Receptor Expression in Cryptorchidism

Panagidis Antonios , Kourea Helen , Sinopidis Xenophon , Kostopoulou Eirini , Rojas-Gil Andrea Paola , Skiadopoulos Spyridon , Georgiou George , Spiliotis Bessie E.

Objective: AMH causes fetal paramesonephric duct regression and is involved in testicular development and function. Sertoli cell AMH remains high during childhood until puberty. The appendix testis (AT), a remnant of the paramesonephric duct, contains both androgen and estrogen receptors. AT androgen receptors have been reported to play a role in embryonic testicular descent. The AT is commonly resected during orchiopexy and abdominal surgery as possible torsion in the future ...

The possible association of the apoptotic marker APO1/Fas with predisposition to metabolic syndrome and mean platelet volume in children

Kostopoulou Eirini , Katsa Maria Efthymia , Magana Maria , Ioannidis Anastasios , Chatzipanagiotou Stylianos , Sachlas Athanasios , Spiliotis Bessie , Rojas Gil Andrea Paola ,

Objective: To investigate the possible relationship between APO1/Fas, components of metabolic syndrome and Mean Platelet Volume (MPV) in a healthy pediatric population.Study design: 185 children, aged 5-17 years old, were enrolled to the study. The participants were divided intο subgroups according to age and body mass index percentile (BMI%). APO1/Fas was measured by ELISA and MPV by the MEK-6410K.Re...

Emotional Intelligence scores in children and adolescents with subclinical hypothyroidism - correlation with serum serotonin and thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) concentrations.

Kostopoulou Eirini , Arianas George , Ioannidis Anastasios , Dimopoulos Ioannis , Chiotis Christos , Prezerakos Panagiotis , Spiliotis Bessie , Rojas Gil Andrea Paola ,

Introduction: Thyroxine is important for nervous system development. Subclinical hypothyroidism (SCH), a mild thyroid dysfunction, is associated with impaired cognitive function in children and mood disorders in adults. Serotonin is also involved in brain development, mood and behavior modulation. The possible interaction between thyroid function tests, serum serotonin concentrations and emotional intelligence, was studied.Method...

Association of the apoptotic markers Apo1/Fas and cCK-18 and the adhesion molecule ICAM-1 with Type 1 diabetes mellitus in children and adolescents.

Kostopoulou Eirini , Efthymia Katsa Maria , Ioannidis Anastasios , Foti Maria , Dimopoulos Ioannis , Spiliotis Bessie , Paola Rojas Gil Andrea

Introduction: Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) is characterized by insulin-producing pancreatic β-cells loss. Apo1/Fas, a glycosylated surface protein, is implicated in maintaining homeostasis of the immune system. Cytokeratin-18 (cCK-18) is a predictive marker of liver disorders in T2DM. Intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) is considered a candidate gene for susceptibility to diabetes mellitus. Aim: To investigate the possible role of Apo1/Fas, cCK-...

Maganna Maria , Katsa Maria Efthymia , Ioannidis Anastasios , Zyga Sofia , Tsironi Maria , Sachlas Athanasios , Routsi Kleopatra , Dolianiti Loukia , Rojas Gil Andrea Paola

Background: Apoptosis is a programmed sequence of events towards cell death. Blood vessels employ apoptosis for remodeling during development and to maintain homeostasis during adulthood. The atherosclerotic process begins in early childhood and is correlated with obesity and metabolic disorders.Objective and hypotheses: To investigate the correlation of apoptotic marker Apo-1/Fas with children’s biochemical and anthropometric characteristics.<p...
