AIM OF THE STUDY Investigation of the relationships between the grade and stage of chronic liver diseases irrespective of their etiology using some novel serum markers of liver fibrogenesis, the "classical" serum markers of liver necro-inflammatory injury (such as transaminases), and the histomorphological evaluation of liver biopsies. METHODS Markers of(More)
INTRODUCTION The study concentrates on nine neoclassical facial references, canons. SAMPLE AND METHODS These neoclassical canons are studied and compared in two groups of young Caucasian population as follows: 160 students were studied, namely 60 primary school boys at the age of seven and 100 young men at the age ranging from 22 to 25 studying at the(More)
The authors with the help of cephalometric RTG analysis study the changes of facial skeleton in children with orofacial clefts and the treatment results. Cephalometric analysis was performed on distance X-rays in patients with orofacial clefts from the whole Slovak republic in the number of 178, with age of 7.8 and 9 years. According to the type of the(More)
The incidence of orofacial cleft (OC) in newborns was compared with the occurrence of virus-neutralizing antibodies to coxsackie viruses in the serum of newborns and their mothers. No significant difference was found when comparing the seropositivity rates between the group of patients and the control group of healthy newborns. If the patients were divided(More)
BACKGROUND Nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without cleft palate (nsCL/P) is the most common orofacial birth defect with an aetiology involving both genetic and environmental factors. Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified several genomic susceptibility regions for nsCL/P. In the present study, the three well established single nucleotide(More)
The aim of this study was to choose and to measure craniofacial parameters that were expected to be influenced by cleft defects. Eight-year-old children (both boys and girls) with operated clefts (15 antropometric parameters) were measured. The measurements were carried out at the Department of Reconstructive Surgery, Hospital Ruzinov, Bratislava. The(More)
Serum antibodies to Mycoplasma pneumoniae and Chlamydia trachomatis have been studied in a group of newborns with orofacial cleft (OC) and their mothers (n = 59) as compared to a control group of healthy newborns and their mothers (n = 40) assayed by ELISA and Western blot analysis. In the first group, IgG antibodies to M. pneumoniae were found by ELISA in(More)
