Background: The blood-brain barrier (BBB) is a multicellular neurovascular unit (NVU) that allows selective passage of necessary molecules into the central nervous system (CNS) while limiting the entry of neurotoxins and most drugs. A cross talk with pericytes and neural cells mediates the acquisition of tight junctions (TJs) in brain microvascular endothelial cells (BMECs), which limit the paracellular passage of solutes, thereby regulating CNS homeostasis. H...

Introduction: Primary ovarian Insufficiency (POI) occurring in youth is a devastating condition. POI is characterized by at least 4 months of disordered menses in association with menopausal follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) levels. The most common causes of POI in adolescence are iatrogenic and chromosomal abnormalities. Data are scarce regarding the incidence of POI in adolescents.Objectives: We aimed to estimate the incidence and the distribution of ...
