Alkaptonuria is a rare metabolic disease characterised by accumulative deposition of homogentisic acid in the connective tissue of the body. This results in early degeneration of tendons, cartilages, heart valves, and other tissues. The main objective of the study is to examine the possibility of the nervous system involvement in patients with alka...

ABSTRACT: Glypican-3 is a heparan sulfate proteoglycans (HSPGs) expressed at plasma membrane surface. Several studies demonstrated the re-expression of glypican-3 during the malignant transformation. Glypican-3 expression in hepatocellular carcinoma was suggested to be a diagnostic marker for differential diagnosis of hepatic nodules. The aim of th...
