BACKGROUND In Europe, the suicide rate among children and adolescents is the highest in Hungary. In the young age group (10-14 and 15-19 years), the suicide mortality rate had not showed a decrease. METHODS This study examined suicide cases committed by children and adolescents highlighted from the extraordinary death cases in Budapest between 1994 and(More)
dUTPase prevents uracil incorporation into DNA by strict regulation of the cellular dUTP:dTTP ratio. Lack of the enzyme initiates thymineless cell death, prompting studies on enzyme regulation. We investigated expression pattern and localization of Drosophila dUTPase. Similarly to human, two isoforms of the fly enzyme were identified at both mRNA and(More)
UNLABELLED Molecular biological examinations have been carried out by the authors from 1995 in patients with different haemostasis, very recently these types of the studies were done in patients with different gastrointestinal (Helicobacter pylori-induced gastritis, hepatitis C infection, ileitis terminalis, ulcerative colitis, colon polyposis and(More)
Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) is one of the most common immune-mediated adverse drug reactions, with frequencies as high as 2-3% for certain groups of post-cardiac surgery patients. We report on an 50-year-old woman with early post-operative thrombosis of the prosthetic mitral valve due to heparin-induced thrombocytopenia. Non-invasive imaging(More)
It has been shown that PARP inhibition is protective in several models of ischemia-reperfusion injury including cardiac, cerebral and renal ones. Due to their ability to reduce myocardial necrosis and to improve myocardial function PARP inhibitors emerged as candidates for treating various cardiovascular diseases including acute myocardial ischemia. Since(More)
INTRODUCTION The most serious complication of tonsillectomy is haemorrhage. Primary post-tonsillectomy bleeding occurs during the first 24 hours following the procedure as a consequence of inadequate suturing/ligation of the feeding arteries. Secondary post-tonsillectomy bleeding occurs most frequently between the 5-8. postoperative days. The role of(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic myelogenous leukemia is characterised by the presence of Philadelphia translocation and consecutive expression of bcr-abl oncogene with enhanced tyrosine kinase activity, which is known to be the essential pathogenetic event in the disease. Imatinib (Glivec, formerly STI571) is a highly selective inhibitor of the bcr-abl tyrosine kinase(More)
UNLABELLED INTRODUCTION, AIMS: The authors present the Cotard's syndrome, a rare psychiatric condition, pointing out the latest results in terms of etiology and psychoneurology. The central feature of the syndrome is a nihilistic delusion, in which the patient denies his or her own existence and that of the external world. METHOD We searched electronic(More)
We report on a case of a patient with schizophrenia who was taking 700 mg extended release quetiapine fumarate during her entire pregnancy to prevent relapse. At week 41 she gave birth to a healthy boy. The newborn's weight was 3410 gramms, his height was 49 cm, his Apgar score in the first minute was 9, and at 5 minutes, it was 10.
The base-emitter voltage, due to its extremely reproducible exponential characteristic, is the basic element in the design of I.C. temperature sensors and temperature compensated voltage references. To achieve the required accuracy and stability in these circuits, an accurate description of the base-emitter voltage temperature dependence V<sub>BE</sub>(T)(More)
