Visfatin is a new adipokine involved in several processes. The data concerning visfatin in chronic hepatitis C (CHC) is small. To assess visfatin serum concentration and to study its association with biochemical and morphological features in CHC. Seventy nonobese patients with CHC (Group 1) confirmed by the presence of serum hepatitis C virus (HCV)-RNA and(More)
Cytidine 5'-diphosphocholine (CDP-choline) is an endogenously synthesized mononucleotide which exerts a variety of physiological effects by altering central cholinergic transmission. Administered intracerebroventricularly (i.c.v.) or intravenously, it reverses haemorrhagic hypotension in rats, apparently by the activation of central cholinergic receptors.(More)
The aim of the study were to answer the question 1.) Whether circulating pro-inflammatory markers of endothelial dysfunction and due to chronic low-grade inflammation of obesity, are altered in untreated lean, young relatively healthy polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) patients in comparison with healthy controls; 2.) Whether postprandial plasma concentration(More)
UNLABELLED INTRODUCTION. Hyperthyroidism in the course of Graves-Basedow disease leads to intensification of oxidative processes and increased production of free oxygen radicals. It results in abnormal oxidative status of the organism. OBJECTIVES Aim of this work was to assess the dynamics of oxidative status changes in women with Graves-Basedow disease(More)
AIM To analyze the relationship between pretreatment clinical or histological features and the levels of soluble platelet-endothelial cell adhesion molecule-1 (sPECAM-1) and soluble vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (sVCAM-1), to determine their serum concentration in responders and nonresponders, to evaluate the behavior under antiviral therapy, to explain(More)
Obesity is accompanied by a high incidence of atherosclerosis, arterial hypertension and non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus in the pathogenesis of which is associated with oxygen-derived free radicals. The aim of the study was to compare blood oxidation status in obese women without coexisting diseases and in healthy women with normal body mass index(More)
Langerhans cell histocytosis is a rare disease. LCH is reported mainly in children aged less than 15 years, however it may appear at any age. In this work, the case of 17-month boy is reported. The boy was admitted to the pediatric ophthalmology department in order to diagnose the swelling and bruising in the lower part of left orbit, which had lasted for(More)
INTRODUCTION The recent investigations point out the significant role of oxidative stress in the development of thyroid gland disease. The present study was designed to investigate the variation of oxidative stae in women with non-autoimmunological subclinical hyperthyroidism. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study was conducted on 20 females with(More)
The histaminergic system influences various activities of the central nervous system, including cardiovascular regulation. Histamine administered intracerebroventricularly (i.c.v.) in anesthetized rats produces the increase in mean arterial pressure (MAP) and heart rate (HR), however, in contrast to normotensive animals, histamine-induced rises in MAP and(More)
