Non-enzymatic glycation of proteins is a consequence of hyperglycemia in diabetes and correlates with aging. The aim of the study was to investigate age-related changes in the glycation of human aortic elastin in healthy subjects by two approaches: (1) assessment by fluorescence method of formed in vivo advanced glycation end products (AGEs) of elastins,(More)
PROBLEM The aim of this study was to investigate anti-elastin and anti-anti-elastin autoantibodies in intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) lots as an attempt to further explain the effect of IVIg in recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL). METHOD OF STUDY Serum samples of 10 female patients with RPL and 10 healthy subjects were tested for anti-elastin autoantibodies(More)
The objective of this work is to present and analyze our da Vinci S robotic surgery results in the treatment of gynecologic tumors for a 1-year period. Fifty-one patients underwent da Vinci S (Intuitive Surgical, USA) robotic surgery at the Medical University—Pleven Gynecologic Oncology Clinic from January 2008 to January 2009. Robot-assisted radical(More)
BACKGROUND Th2-type T cell response has a considerable role in atopic diseases. The involvement of Th17 and IL-17 in atopy process provided new understanding of allergic diseases. Bronchial hyperresponsiveness is quite common in allergic rhinitis. We aimed to explore the expression of IL-17 producing CD3+ CD4+ T cells in peripheral blood of rhinitic(More)
The presence of aberrant obturator vessels, arising from the external iliac circulatory system and their lesion during a surgical intervention in the area, may lead to bleeding, which is difficult to control. For a period of 5 years, 133 endoscopic bilateral pelvic lymph node dissections in patients with cervical cancer were performed, and the present(More)
BACKGROUND Interleukin-17A (I-17A)-producing CD4+T helper cells have been implicated in allergic inflammation; however, the role of IL-17A in allergic rhinitis (AR) patients with different degrees of atopy and airway reactivity to methacholine (Mch) has not been examined. OBJECTIVES To explore IL-17A-producing CD3+CD4+T cells in peripheral blood of(More)
In this study, perioperative outcomes and survival data in patients with early cervical cancer operated with three surgical methods: robot-assisted, laparoscopic and open, are to be analyzed. From January 2006 to May 2010, 294 patients with T1в1 cervical cancer were studied retrospectively. Robot-assisted radical hysterectomy (RARH) was performed in 73(More)
