Bazan Maria , Casella Sofia , Lopez Santiago , Carrizo Teresita , Velarde Maria , Diaz Elba , Abregu Adela

Background: Diabetes is associated with increased risk of vascular disease. In children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes (T1D), clinical manifestations of vascular complications are infrequent; however, a pro-inflammatory state and endothelial disturbance could appear early. A subclinical inflammation state result in increased plasma levels of adhesion molecules, inflammatory cytokines as tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF╬▒), and acute phase proteins as C-reactive prote...

The Role of Fibroblast Growth Factor 21 and Irisin in the Pathogenesis of Obesity in Childhood and Adolescence

Karampatsou Sofia-Iliada , Genitsaridi Sofia-Maria , Papageorgiou Ifigeneia , Charmandari Evangelia

Background: Obesity in childhood and adolescence represents a major health problem that reached epidemic proportions in the last decades. Obesity is characterized by an increase in the adipose tissue, which leads to chronic inflammation and release of adipokines, like Fibroblast Growth Factor 21 (FGF21). On the other hand, intense exercise results in decreased adipose tissue, which leads to the release of proteins, the myokines, like irisin. In obesity a resistance in FGF21 an...

Lonapegsomatropin (TransCon hGH) is an investigational once-weekly prodrug of somatropin for the treatment of GHD. Previous trials in treatment-naïve (52-week heiGHt Trial) and treatment-experienced children (26-week fliGHt Trial) have reported the efficacy and safety of lonapegsomatropin. Subjects were eligible to enter the open-label extension enliGHten Trial, which continues to evaluate weekly lonapegsomatropin in pediatric GHD. In heiGHt, treatment-naïve subjects...

Insights Into the Role of Cortisol in the Formation of the Clock/Bmal1 Complex and its Interaction with dsDNA, via Molecular Dynamics Simulations

Nicolaides Nicolas , Raftopoulou Sofia , Kino Tomoshige , Vlachakis Dimitrios , Chrousos George

Background: The circadian rhythm-generating peripheral Clock/Bmal1 heterodimer complex regulates the circadian activities of many biological systems, including the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, by trans-activating or trans-repressing downstream target genes.Objective and Hypotheses: To investigate the potential role of elevated cortisol in Clock/Bmal1 heterodimer complex-generated circadian biorhythms, both ...
