Amyloidogenic aggregation and misfolding of proteins are linked to neurodegeneration. The mechanism of neurodegeneration in Alzheimer's disease, which gives rise to severe neuronal death and memory loss, is not yet fully understood. The amyloid hypothesis remains the most accepted theory for the pathomechanism of the disease. It was suggested that β-amyloid(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the events during and after radical cystectomy and urinary diversion for bladder cancer, in terms of major and minor complications, comparing a minimal with an extended lymphadenectomy, as more lymph nodes obtained during radical cystectomy may improve staging and thus the outcome. PATIENTS AND METHODS We reviewed 92 consecutive(More)
Recent reports seem to support the role of the thrombophilia and decreased fibrinolysis in the aetiopathogenesis of aseptic necrosis of bone. In the present study, haemostatic disturbances were analysed in adults (n = 49) and patients in childhood (Perthes disease) (n = 47) with aseptic necrosis of the femoral head. Fibrinolytic parameters (in vitro clot(More)
The disposition of ceftriaxone was studied after a single 2 g intravenous dose in seven patients 3 to 5 days after liver transplantation. Ceftriaxone concentrations in plasma, urine, and bile were measured by HPLC, and plasma protein binding was determined by equilibrium dialysis. Plasma protein binding was nonlinear, and the unbound fraction varied between(More)
Disturbances in intraluminal endoplasmic reticulum (ER) Ca(2+) concentration leads to the accumulation of unfolded proteins and perturbation of intracellular Ca(2+) homeostasis, which has a huge impact on mitochondrial functioning under normal and stress conditions and can trigger cell death. Thapsigargin (TG) is widely used to model cellular ER stress as(More)
Cloprednol was tested in 25 patients with chronic reversible bronchial obstruction, with respect to changes in hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis function and its efficacy on their clinical asthma. Patients were treated by a single morning dose for a 6-month period. The HPA axis function as estimated by fasting plasma cortisol levels did not show any(More)
