Platelet hyperactivation in maintained growth hormone-deficient childhood patients after therapy withdrawal as a putative earlier marker of increased cardiovascular risk

, : Platelet hyperactivation in maintained growth hormone-deficient childhood patients after therapy withdrawal as a putative earlier marker of increased cardiovascular risk. Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism 90(1): 98-105

GH deficiency (GHD) is associated with a higher risk of vascular disease, whose pathophysiological mechanisms remains not yet fully elucidated. This study aimed to assess the main cardiovascular risk indexes, plasma catecholamines content, and the platelet function in childhood-onset GHD patients.

The male-specific lethal (MSL) complex of Drosophila is responsible for the presence of a monoacetylated isoform of histone H4 (H4Ac16), found exclusively on the X chromosome of males. This particular covalent modification of histone H4 is correla...

Interleukin (IL)-4 and IL-13 are closely related cytokines known to inhibit osteoclast formation by targeting osteoblasts to produce an inhibitor, osteoprotegerin (OPG), as well as by directly targeting osteoclast precursors. However, whether thei...
