The main lymphocytes' subpopulations of peripheral blood in 21 children (mean age--9.8 +/- 3.3 y) with permanent proteinuria and haematuria, 11 with IgA nephropathy (IgA) and 10 with nephropathy in course of Schonlein-Henoch purpura (Sch-H) during intensification of symptoms were assessed on flow cytometer f. Coultier, using monoclonal antibodies. The(More)
BACKGROUND Lipid disorders are known to be linked to disturbance in oxidative reactions and play an important role in the progression and complications of idiopathic nephrotic syndrome (INS). AIMS The aim of this study was to assess oxidized low-density lipoprotein (oxLDL), high-sensitive C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) serum concentrations and other(More)
BACKGROUND Detrusor overactivity (DO) is one of the most frequent bladder dysfunctions in children up to the age of 18. Nowadays, the only way to confirm DO is by urodynamic investigation, which is an invasive procedure. Among the many mediators influencing bladder function, nerve growth factor (NGF) plays an important role. The present study was designed(More)
PURPOSE We investigated HbA1c's validity as a screening parameter for excluding dysglycemic states in the studied population. MATERIAL/METHODS Sensitivity and specificity of HbA1c in some cut-off points were compared with diagnoses based on the oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) in individuals diagnosed between 2009-2010. Receiver operating characteristic(More)
BACKGROUND Numerous studies have demonstrated that elevated serum uric acid concentration (SUA) is correlated with lipid profile in hypertensive or obese patients. However, the relationship between serum uric acid levels and lipid profile in non-obese late adolescent population was not examined before. AIMS In this study we decided to assess the potential(More)
BACKGROUND Registration of infliximab in Poland has increased chances to induce clinical remission and mucosal healing in the severe form of pediatric Crohn's disease. OBJECTIVES The aim of this retrospective study was to assess the results and safety of infliximab therapy in the severe form of pediatric Crohn's disease. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study(More)
INTRODUCTION Antibodies reacting with various microbial epitopes have been described in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and are associated with a specific diagnosis and clinical presentation. AIM To evaluate the profile of new anti-glycan antibodies, their potential association with disease phenotype and diagnostic accuracy in paediatric Crohn's disease(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the study was to assess the expression of selected adhesion molecules on mononuclear cells of peripheral blood and lymphocyte subpopulations in children with IgA nephropathy (IgAN). MATERIAL AND METHODS 14 children with IgAN and 20 healthy controls were included in the study. Flow cytometry was used to determine the expression of such(More)
