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: 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...
