26904686 The concentrations of gastric peptide(Ghrelin and obestatin)and adipocytokines(omentin and Apelin ) across all subgroups were lower than in the control group. The differences were statistically significant (p < 0.0001), which may be of importance in the development of the disease complications
26741958 GH, IGF-1 and ISI-Matsuda index were lower in the high fatty liver index group in obese subjects with fatty liver and sarcopenia.
26721207 High serum ghrelin may be protective against the development of hypertension.
26643495 Our study provides the first preliminary evidence suggesting that oxidative stress may affect fetal ghrelin levels in humans.
26599409 the GHRL rs26311 polymorphism is associated with an increased risk to hepatitis B virus-related liver cirrhosis, especially in men.
26536003 Preproghrelin Leu72Met variation is on the exon 2 with a cytosine (C) to adenine (A) transition at base 408 (+408C>A). Previous studies indicated that this variation was associated with obesity, early onset of obesity and metabolic syndrome.
26506614 Among the gastroesophageal reflux disease patients, ghrelin levels were inversely associated with the frequency and severity of acid regurgitation
26407611 Ghrelin modulates GLUT1 expression and thus indirectly enhances tumor cell proliferation. These findings are of major relevance, because glucose uptake is assumed to be a promising target for cancer treatment.
26402983 low serum ghrelin concentrations associated with increased global cardiovascular risk
26396004 Higher levels of ghrelin were associated with an increased risk of Barrett's esophagus among the general population.
