Voutetakis Antonis , Kanaka-Gantenbein Christina , Gryparis Alexandros , Dacou-Voutetakis Catherine

Background: Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (HT) is a relatively common autoimmune disorder that involves both cellular and humoral immunity, the latter characterized by the presence of antithyroid antibodies. Nevertheless, despite the large number of relevant studies, the underlying pathogenetic mechanisms still remain unclear; evidence and indications pointing to both genetic and environmental components. Genetic studies have uncovered molecular associations tha...

Batch-to-Batch Consistency of a Highly O-Glycosylated Long-Acting Human Growth Hormone (MOD-4023)

Moschcovich Laura , Guy Rachel , Felikman Yana , Zakar Miri , Hershkovitz Oren

Background: OPKO Biologics is a clinical-stage public company developing long-acting therapeutic proteins utilizing CTP technology. The technology involves fusion of the C-terminal peptide of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), which is highly O-glycosylated, to the target protein. CTP enabled the production of a long-acting human growth hormone (hGH) (MOD-4023), which supports a single weekly injection in growth hormone-deficient patients. MOD-4023 is manufactured as a non-vi...

Inhibitory Effects of Curcuminoids on the Enzymes from the Steroidogenic Pathway

Rodríguez Castaño Patricia , Pandey Amit V

Background: Turmeric is a popular ingredient in the cuisine of many Asian countries. It is also known for its use in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine. It comes from the root of the Curcuma longa. Turmeric is rich in curcuminoids, including curcumin, demethoxycurcumin, and bisdemethoxycurcumin. Curcumin has potent anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic activities. Since many anti-cancer drugs target enzymes from the steroidogenic pathway, we tested the bioactivi...

IGF1 Deficiency: An Important Differential Diagnosis in Severe Growth Failure and Its Excellent Response to rhIGF1 Replacement Therapy

Giri Dinesh , Storr Helen , Savage Martin O , Ramakrishnan Renuka

Background: IGF1 is the key effector peptide in the control of normal growth. IGF1 deficiency in the presence of normal GH is associated with growth failure. This may be caused by primary defects in the GH-IGF1 axis or by conditions such as malnutrition or chronic inflammation. Severe primary IGF1 deficiency (height <−3 S.D., serum IGF1 <2.5th centile, GH normal) is an European Medicines Agency (EMA) licensed indication for rhIGF1 therapy. We repor...

Merazka Amel , Achir S , Baz O , Foudil D , Mimouni S

Background: Central diabetes insipidus (DIC) is usually the final result of lesions affecting the hypothalamic–neurohypophysal system, for the children, Germinoma is the main reason. The MRI aspect is often limited to thickness pituitary stalk with loss of hyperintensity of the neurohypophysis.Objective and hypotheses: Thickening of pituitary stalk is suggestive of germinoma, the clinical picture is dominated by a DIC (90%), associated to hypopituit...

Selected Serum Adipokines in Children with Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Oświęcimska Joanna , Szymlak Agnieszka , Chobot Agata , Mazur Bogdan , Ziora Katarzyna

Background: Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a functional gastrointestinal disorder. The pathogenesis of this disease has not been clarified so far. It is hypothesized that visceral hypersensitivity observed in IBS is associated with the activation of immune system and development of low-grade inflammation in the intestinal mucosa. Previous studies have shown that hormonal function of adipose tissue in inflammatory bowel disease is disturbed. However, there is only a few repo...
