Advanced lipoprotein parameters could better explain atheromatosis in non-diabetic chronic kidney disease patients

Abstract Background: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients have a high burden of atheromatous cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) not fully explained by traditional lipid parameters. Lipoprotein composition and subclass particle number information could improve ASCVD risk assessment. The objective of this study is to investigate the association of advanced lipoprotein parameters with the risk of atheromatosis in a […]

Serum metabolic biomarkers for synucleinopathy conversion in isolated REM sleep behavior disorder

Abstract Isolated rapid eye movement (REM) sleep behavior disorder (iRBD) is a prodromal stage of Lewy-type synucleinopathies (LTS), which can present either with an initial predominant parkinsonism (Parkinson’s disease (PD)) or dementia (dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB)). To provide insights into the underlying pathogenic mechanisms, the lipoprotein and protein glycosylation profile of 82 iRBD patients, […]

Metabolomics Reveals Reduction of Metabolic Oxidation in Women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome after Pioglitazone-Flutamide-Metformin Polytherapy

Abstract Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a variable disorder characterized by a broad spectrum of anomalies, including hyperandrogenemia, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, body adiposity, low-grade inflammation and increased cardiovascular disease risks. Recently, a new polytherapy consisting of low-dose flutamide, metformin and pioglitazone in combination with an estro-progestagen resulted in the regulation of endocrine clinical markers in […]
