Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) is rare and very severe disease, classified into the group of subacute and viral infections of central nervous system (CNS), and can simulate clinical pictures of numerous degenerative diseases of nervous system. PML was firstly described in 1958, and pathologic-morphologic substrate was explained in papers(More)
In order to determine the baseline state of oxidative stress indices in drug-free patients with Parkinson's disease (PD), we analyzed cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and peripheral blood samples of 34 subjects in disease stages I-III, according to the Hoehn & Yahr scale, compared with controls. The results showed a highly significant increase in malondialdehyde(More)
With a view to investigating whether in circadian variations of platelet aggregation (PA) and fibrinolytic activity there is an elevated risk period for incidence and development of ischemic stroke, 25 healthy subjects (5 females and 20 males), their age ranging from 29 to 51, were exposed to the analysis of PA, euglobulin lysis time (ELT), fibrinogen(More)
The etiology of neuronal death in neurodegenerative diseases, including Huntington's disease (HD), is still unknown. There could be a complex interplay between altered energy metabolism, excitotoxicity and oxidative stress. Unilateral administration of quinilonic acid (QA), NMDA agonist, in rat striatum in a single dose of 150 nM was used as a model of HD.(More)
Migraine is a syndrome clinically manifested in attacks which dominant symptom is unilateral, rarely generalized, recurrent headache that can last for hours, and occasionally, days. According to different sources, it is considered that about 10-15% of world population suffers from some type of this syndrome. Migraine is most frequently clinically revealed(More)
PURPOSE To determine the levels of interleukin 6 (IL-6) and its soluble receptor (sIL-6R) in the aqueous humor (AH) of patients with different uveitis entities. PATIENTS AND METHODS AH and serum samples were collected from 35 patients (39 eyes) who underwent surgery for uveitis complications and from 10 controls (senile cataract). In the studied group,(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of lipoprotein(a) in the carotid atherosclerosis and ischemic cerebrovascular disorders. Four groups of subjects were included: 49 patients with transient ischemic attacks, 61 with acute cerebral infarction, 48 with asymptomatic carotid atherosclerosis and a group of 50 healthy subjects. Lipoprotein(a) serum(More)
Treatment of Wistar rats with aluminum chloride causes astroglial and neuronal cell damage in the selective brain regions of association cortex and hippocampus, seen in patients with Alzheimer's disease. Adult Wistar rats were treated with unilateral intrahippocampal injection of AlCl3 in one single dose of 3.7 g/kg b.w. Control group of animals was treated(More)
