BACKGROUND The pathogenesis of rhegmatogenous retinal detachments remains unclear, but some data suggest immune system involvement. Cytokines are substances secreted by cells in order to modulate the function of other cells. They exert primarily local effects. Because the TH1/TH2 balance is crucial in the immune response, the predominance of one cytokine(More)
A high performance thin-layer chromatography (HPTLC) method combined with densitometry for determination of phenothiazine derivatives is described. Quantitation was performed in reflectance mode by using a computer-controlled densitometer Desaga CD 60. Established calibration curve (r > 0.999), precision (RDS values: 0.95-2.53%), detection limits as well as(More)

MATERIALS AND METHODS The analysis was performed based on the results of a survey, which covered 198 rural inhabitants living in Wola Uhruska region. The study was carried out during training(More)
The occurrence of primary open glaucoma (POAG) in families proves the hypothesis that POAG is a disease with underlying genetic factors. This work describes a family of four generations, in which eight members suffered from POAG. In the 3rd and 4th generation members, the disease occurred at an early age (between the age of 20-40 years), i.e. at a much(More)
Patients with central retinal artery occlusion usually suffer from serious systemic diseases that could be potentially threatening life. Retinal emboli are associated with the presence of hypertension and other cardiovascular diseases, diabetes mellitus, hematological disturbances or infections. The goal of this study is the assessment of the most common(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of the study was to determine alpha-antitrypsin (AAT) and ceruloplasmin (CER) level in the subretinal fluid of patients with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD). Investigation was performed in 41 patients (22 women, 19 men) operated on for RRD at the age from 24 to 81. The group of patients was divided with regard to the extent and(More)
The paper presents an original method of examining blood-aqueous humor permeability. The examinations were performed on grey rabbits that had been intravenously injected 10% fluorescein solution. Subsequently, at definite time intervals from the moment of the administration, fluid of the anterior chamber was taken in which the amount of aqueous fluorescein(More)
