The maternal and fetal Renin-Angiotensin-Systemis involved in the control of pregnancy outcomes such as blood pressure controland gestational age. However, very little is known about the impact of theangiotensin converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) on pregnancy outcome. A prospectiveclinical observational study was conducted to analyse the association ofmaternal and fetal ACE2 gene rs2074192 polymorphism with fetal growth duringpregnancyThis is the first study showing thatthe babies but not their mothers with ACE2 gene rs2074192 T allele had a highrisk for SGA, which contributes to metabolic syndrome andcardiovascular diseases in later life.ReadMore">

The addition of immunosuppression to supportivecare reduces proteinuria in a subset of patients withIgA nephropathy (IgAN) but is associated with an increased rate ofadverse events. The present study investigates whether urinary biomarkers areable to identify subjects who benefit from immunosuppression and to predict theprogression of disease in a sub-cohort of the STOP-IgAN trial.ReadMore">

Transientischemic attack (TIA) is an ischemic episode of neurologic dysfunctioncharacterized by a spontaneous clinical resolution of symptoms within 24 hours.Mechanisms of this remarkable recovery are not yet well understood. In patientswith permanent brain injury caused by a stroke cortical levels ofg-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) are decreased. In this study, authors aimed toinvestigate, whether similar alterations of cortical GABA are also present inpatients with TIA.ReadMore">

Single-centerretrospective study was conducted to identify markers of hypocapnic cerebralhypoperfusion (HYCH) in patients with orthostatic intolerance (OI) withouttachycardia and without orthostatic hypotension. The study results concludedthat both HYCH and Postural tachycardia syndrome (POTS) patients havecomparable decrease in cerebral blood flow velocity (CBFv) which is due tovasoconstrictive effect of hypocapnia. Blood flow velocity monitoring canprovide an objective biomarker for HYCH in OI patients without tachycardia.ReadMore ">

Statusepilepticus (SE) is one of the most critical symptoms of encephalitis.Studies on early predictions of progression to super-refractory statusepilepticus (SRSE) and poor outcome in SE due toacute encephalitis are scarce. This study aims to investigate thevalues of neuroimaging and continuous electroencephalogram (EEG) in themultimodal prediction.ReadMore">
