OBJECTIVE To detect lymphocyte subpopulations and CD3+/DR + expression in sepsis. METHODS In a prospective clinical study we evaluated subpopulations of lymphocytes and percentage of CD3+/HLA-DR+ lymphocytes using two-color flow cytometry in 40 patients with sepsis and compared them with 34 healthy adults. RESULTS Septic patients, when compared with(More)
The authors describe a fatal case of tertian malaria (Plasmodium vivax) imported to the Czech Republic from India. Severe clinical symptoms leading to shock and multi-organ failure are more frequent in tropical malaria (P. falciparum). Despite the use oc continuous veno-venous haemodiafiltration HLA-DR decline and death occurred. The effect of the(More)
Ocular toxocariasis (ocular form of larval toxocariasis) arises mainly unilaterally and represents no rare disease. On 3rd Department of Infectology, 1st Faculty of Medicine, Charles University, Prague, 102 patients with proved larval toxocariasis were treated from 1981 to 1990.

The immunoglobulin was administered in a single dose or repeatedly by the intramuscular route. The decline(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to analyze lymphocyte subset numbers in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from patients with tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) and acute neuroborreliosis. METHODS CSF lymphocyte subsets were enumerated in 42 TBE and nine neuroborreliosis patients using flow cytometry. RESULTS The CSF numbers of CD4+, CD8+, HLA-DR+ and total-T(More)
A brief survey of the present incidence of infectious diseases (by WHO) and new possibilities of their team study. Global significance of morbidity and mortality of some infections is stressed, namely those of malaria, tuberculosis, HIV infection, infantile diarrhoea, respiratory diseases. Alarming trends in age distribution of some diseases (87% of HIV(More)
