Glucocorticoid Sensitivity and Proinflammatory Cytokines Pattern in Pemphigus
(SPRINGER/PLENUM PUBLISHERSNEW YORK, 2012-08)
Glucocorticoids (GC) represent the main treatment for pemphigus; however, some patients show GC resistance. GC sensitivity was evaluated in 19 pemphigus patients and 41 controls by the number of binding sites [B-max (fmol/mg ...
Hypophagia induced by glucocorticoid deficiency is associated with an increased activation of satiety-related responses
(AMER PHYSIOLOGICAL SOC, 2009)
Uchoa ET, Sabino HA, Ruginsk SG, Antunes-Rodrigues J, Elias LL. Hypophagia induced by glucocorticoid deficiency is associated with an increased activation of satiety-related responses. J Appl Physiol 106: 596-604, 2009. ...
Mechanical vibration preserves bone structure in rats treated with glucocorticoids
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE INC, 2010)
Glucocorticoids are an important cause of secondary osteoporosis in humans, which decreases bone quality and leads to fractures. Mechanical stimulation in the form of low-intensity and high-frequency vibration seems to be ...
Effects of environmental conditions, human activity, reproduction, antler cycle and grouping on fecal glucocorticoids of free-ranging Pampas deer stags (Ozotoceros bezoarticus bezoarticus)
(Elsevier B.V., 2006-01-01)
In this study, a commercial enzyme immunoassay (EIA) was validated in detecting glucocorticoids in Pampas deer feces, in order to investigate the influence of several factors on the adrenocortical function. Fecal samples, ...
Evaluation of the glucocorticoid receptor as a biomarker of treatment response in Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease
(Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology Inc., 2017)
© 2017 The Authors. PURPOSE. This study is aimed to investigate the role of glucocorticoid receptor (GR) isoforms in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) as biomarkers of glucocorticoid (GC) resistance and to validate ...
Glucocorticoid receptor β in acute and chronic inflammatory conditions: Clinical implications
(Elsevier GmbH, 2006)
Glucocorticoids (GC) are hormones with a wide variety of actions, including profound anti-inflammatory/immunosuppressive effects. Their actions are mediated by an intracellular receptor called the glucocorticoid receptor ...
Increased expression of the glucocorticoid receptor β in infants with RSV bronchiolitis
OBJECTIVES: The majority of studies on glucocorticoid treatment in respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) bronchiolitis concluded that there are no beneficial effects. We hypothesized that RSV-infected patients may have an ...
GLUCOCORTICOID-REGULATED GENE IN TRANSFORMED TO NORMAL PHENOTYPIC REVERSION
(Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica (ABRADIC), 2014)
Insulin signaling proteins in pancreatic islets of insulin-resistant rats induced by glucocorticoid
(Soc Biolgia Chile, 2011-01-01)
Chronic administration of glucocorticoids induces insulin resistance that is compensated by an increase in beta-cell function and mass. Since insulin signaling is involved in the control of beta-cell function and mass, we ...
