Fragments from the transcribed region of the ribosomal repeat include considerable amounts of unmethylated CpG DNA motifs. These motifs activate immune cells via the interaction with Toll receptors. In vitro experiments confirmed the stimulatory effect of transcribed region of ribosomal repeat on human lymphocytes. Culturing of lymphocytes in a medium(More)
The lymphocytes of peripheral blood of healthy donors were influenced by X-ray radiation (10 cGy) or a fragments of the transcribed region of rDNA (TRrDNA) transmitted to the incubation medium of non-irradiated cells. Both factors induced transposition of the loci 1q12 of homologous chromosomes from the membrane to the centre of the nucleus in lymphocytes;(More)
The cytotoxicity of four aminoglycoside antibiotics was studied by estimation of the dose-effect relationship using a panel cellular biotest system including cell cultures for test objects. The cultures represented 4 differentiation types: normal human fibroblasts and myoblasts, human or Syrian hamster hepatoma cells, and mouse/mouse hybridoma cells. It was(More)
Chronic endobronchial inflammation and bacterial infection are the main causes of morbidity and mortality in cystic fibrosis (CF), an autosomal recessive genetic disorder associated with improper function of chloride channels. Inflammation in CF lung is greatly amplified after Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection. In this study the relationship between P.(More)
Pseudo-alpha(1)-acid glycoprotein with carbohydrate chain ratio typical of native form was synthesized by a previously developed original technique of quantitative transfer of alpha(1)-acid glycoprotein carbohydrate chains to other polymeric carrier. Similarly to native glycoprotein, the semisynthetic analog inhibited lymphocyte proliferation and stimulated(More)
Direct positive correlation has been shown between the level of stimulation of peripheral blood lymphocytes and of the inhibition degree of PHA stimulation by dexamethasone. On the basis of this correlation we subdivided all the examined individuals into three groups of susceptibility: resistant, sensitive, and intermediate. The studies carried out in these(More)
The total-systems inflammatory response was assessed in patients with sepsis and multiple organ failure by measuring plasma cytokines TNF-alpha, IL-1 beta, and IL-6 and their clearance and total elimination in the course of permanent hemofiltration (PHF). Sepsis and multiple organ failure were found to involve a stable circulation of numerous cytokines,(More)
BACKGROUND The life expectancy of patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) is largely dependent on the pulmonary disease severity and progress. Malnutrition may be an important complicating factor in active and chronic lung disease. AIMS The focus of this study was to investigate several inflammatory markers in pancreatic-insufficient CF patients with different(More)
Benzodiazepines (BDZs) are known to act not only in the central nervous system, but on peripheral cells and tissues binding to the peripheral-type benzodiazepine receptors. In the present study, the influence of two different BDZs (diazepam (Dz) and tofizopam (Tof) on several immune functions has been examined in vitro. Some differences between Dz and Tof(More)
