Postmenopausal osteoporosis is the most common metabolic bone disease with important genetic factors. We evaluated the frequency of polymorphism 283G/A of the vitamin D3 VDR gene receptor. The study included 800 women at the postmenopausal (505) and reproductive (295) age. Statistically significant changes, depending on the genotype, were shown.(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic application of third generation progestagens as contraceptives or hormone replacement therapy (HRT) could influence the serum lipid profile, and consequently the bile and gallstone composition. The aim of this study was to determine components of serum, bile and gallstones in women of reproductive age or postmenopausal women using(More)
BACKGROUND Recognition of different genetic variants underlying osteoporosis would make it possible to introduce individual, symptomatic treatment as well as early prophylaxis of osteoporosis. The aim of the study was to evaluate the frequency of the rs2275913 (-197G > A) polymorphism of the IL-17 gene and assess the relation of this polymorphism with the(More)
Snail1 is a zinc-finger transcription factor, which plays a role in colorectal cancer development by silencing E-cadherin expression and inducing epithelialmesenchymal transition (EMT). During EMT tumour cells acquire a mesenchymal phenotype that is responsible for their invasive activities. Consequently, Snail1 expression in colorectal cancer is usually(More)
Numerous studies have demonstrated that exposure of mammalians, including humans to inorganic cadmium, result in a cascade of toxic effects. The developing mammalian brain is particularly more sensitive to cadmium then the adult brain, being affected both morphologically and neurochemically. Uridine is a precursor of RNA, and the intensity of its(More)
As a first attempt at exploring an association between histaminergic and serotoninergic neuronal phenotypes in glucose regulation, the influence of the histamine H3 receptor antagonist thioperamide on glucose uptake by brain was determined in rats in which the serotoninergic innervations of brain was largely destroyed perinatally. Male Wistar rats were(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Recognition of different genetic variants underlying development of osteoporosis would make it possible to administer individual symptomatic treatment as well as early prophylactics of osteoporosis. The aim of the study was to evaluate frequency of polymorphism 326A/T of gene ITLN-1 and assessment of its relations with the clinical(More)
The aim of this study was to determine histamine content in the brain and the effect of histamine receptor antagonists on behavior of adult rats lesioned as neonates with the serotonin (5-HT) neurotoxin 5,7-dihydroxytryptamine (5,7-DHT). At 3 days after birth Wistar rats were pretreated with desipramine (20 mg/kg ip) before bilateral icv administration of(More)
Rats lesioned shortly after birth with 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA; 134 μg icv) represent a near-ideal model of severe Parkinson’s disease because of the near-total destruction of nigrostriatal dopaminergic fibers. There are scarce data that in Parkinson’s disease, activity of the central histaminergic system is increased. The element manganese, an essential(More)
