This epidemiological study is completed on island Rab, located in North Adriatic Sea. For this study it is important that Adriatic Sea has one of the highest solar radiations in geographical area of Europe. The aim of this epidemiological study is to estimate correlation between incidence of Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and exposure of sunlight in(More)
We evaluate the effect of intravitreal injections of Bevacizumab (IVB) alone or combined with triamcinolone (IVT) in the first injection for treatment of refractory diabetic macular oedema (DME). Sixty eyes of sixty patients with refractory DME were included. Half of the receive injections of IVB (1.25 mg/0.05 mL) or combined IVB and IVT (1.25 mg/0.05 mL(More)
In a double-blind randomized clinical trial, 79 non-insulin-dependent diabetic subjects with early retinopathy and open-angle glaucoma received orally either three 500-mg capsules of Doxium (calcium dobesilate) daily for 6 months (41 patients) or three placebo capsules daily for the same period (38 patients). At the end of the study statistically(More)
50 patients with diabetes mellitus of 2-7 years' duration were divided by a random method into 2 equal groups, one of which received 1,500 mg of Doxium (calcium dobesilate) daily for 3 months, the other group receiving a placebo. All the patients had diabetic retinopathy, open-angle glaucoma, raised intraocular pressure, and hyperviscosity of whole blood,(More)

To exclude primary splenic lymphoma we performed splenic aspiration where Leishmania amastigotes were found. No cases of(More)
Newborn and adult articular cartilage expresses bone (BMPs) and cartilage derived morphogenetic proteins (CDMPs). These morphogenetic proteins act over membrane receptors (BMPRs). We examined the expression pattern of BMP-7, BMP-3, CDMP-1, CDMP-2 and their receptors in adult normal and osteoarthritic, articular, knee cartilage. Immunostaining was carried(More)
Depending on the geographic and climatic region and vegetation, allergenic plants are characteristic for certain areas and the pollen concentrations of various plant species depend on the fenophase of each single species and most of all on the climatic and meteorological conditions of a certain area. It is precisely because of these specific characteristics(More)
