Satisfactory results were obtained in eight cases, the only poor outcome following a three-year delay between the initial injury and the reposition. The(More)
UNLABELLED Circulating forms of L-selectin were found to be elevated in several autoimmune diseases. ICAM-1 has been suggested a predictor of the onset of GO. The aim of the study was an estimation of serum L-selectin and ICAM-1 in patients with Graves' disease with ophthalmopathy during treatment with corticosteroids to assess their potential as a(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of the study was to estimate serum pro-inflammatory cytokines concentration: TNF alpha and IL-6 as well as anti-inflammatory cytokine levels: IL-10 and IL-1ra in patients with Graves' disease and ophthalmopathy before and during glucocorticoid therapy. Serum cytokines were detected in three groups of subjects: 20 patients with Graves'(More)
The aim of this study was to estimate the influence of corticosteroids on Th1 and Th2 serum cytokine balance in patients with GO: IFNgamma, TNFalpha, IL-4 and IL-10. Further, we tested the hypothesis of an up-regulation of Th2 immune response during successful treatment with corticosteroids to explain their beneficial effect in Graves' ophthalmopathy. Serum(More)
Due to the grow-up of number of patients suffering from signs of dry-eye syndrome we are obligated to investigate physiology and pathology of tear film. Data obtained from patients with Sjögren Syndrome and other types of lacrimal dysfunction shows that the expectations for break-up in dry-eye treatment strategy are very high. In our review we are(More)
UNLABELLED Aim of the study was to estimate the efficacy of 6-alpha-methylprednisolone injection into involved extraocular muscles in eyes with motility disturbances caused by endocrine ophthalmopathy. MATERIAL AND METHODS For further evaluation we qualified 4 patients, 1 female and 3 males, aged: 60, 43, 42 and 64 years, with clinical activity score(More)
On the basis of observation of the ulcer disease of the stomach and duodenum in 970 patients given the restorative treatment in rehabilitation hospitals after being discharged from the surgical hospital the authors recommend the earlier rehabilitative treatment since it gives more rapid reestablishment of their working capacity.
