27152377 serum YKL-40 level in coronary artery disease patients was significantly higher than that in control subjects.
27121858 Increased mRNA level of CHI3L1 could be associated with the progression of astrocytoma and poor patient survival not only for glioblastoma, but for lower grade astrocytoma tumors as well.
27069189 We identified five new biomarkers: GDF15, osteonectin, TRAP5, TWEAK, and YKL40 as being promising markers for monitoring bone metastases.
27013031 YKL-40 expression is up-regulated in patients with COPD and correlates with exacerbation attacks and may contribute to airway remodeling by acting on lung fibroblasts.
26828595 Elevated serum CHI3L1 concentration is an independent prognostic biomarker for poorer survival in lung cancer patients.
26733160 This review comprehensively analyzes recent data about expression pattern, and involvement of human YKL-40, YKL-39 and SI-CLP in cancer. [review]
26698298 Neurogranin and YKL-40 are promising AD biomarkers, independent of and complementary to the established core Alzheimer's disease (AD) biomarkers, reflecting additional pathological changes in the course of AD
26696093 YKL-40 is a potential marker for in vitro cultured pro-inflammatory macrophages and is not a valuable biomarker in serum and sputum of patients with COPD treated with inhaled corticosteroids.
26620310 Ykl-40 expression was significantly lower in the serum of TB patients compared to lung cancer, lung metastasis, pneumonia, and transudate pleural effusion. Pleural Ykl40 was similar among all groups.
26603717 The serum YKL-40 cutoff to identify beta-thalassemia major patients with liver cirrhosis or heart disease was determined.
