A PARK8 form of Parkinson's disease (PD) is caused by a novel gene, leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2), and a single mutation G2019S was found in a proportion of LRRK2-associated cases of diverse ethnic origins. We performed the LRRK2 G2019S mutation analysis in 304 Russian patients with PD, including 291 sporadic and 13 autosomal dominant cases. The(More)
Reactivity of arterial vessels in the small intestine mesentery to irradiation with a helium-neon laser before and after NO synthase blockade was studied by means of biomicroscopy. Blood flow velocity and vascular diameter increased under conditions of laser irradiation. During irradiation, arterial vasodilation was inversely related to the initial(More)
A recently described form of Parkinson's disease - PARK8 - is caused by mutations in the novel LRRK2 gene on chromosome 12q12. The most common mutation in this gene is the substitution G2019S and we studied it for the first time in a large group of Russian Slavonic patients (311 patients) with Parkinson's disease including 295 sporadic and 16 familial(More)
Helicobacter pylori positive form of duodenal ulcer (CagA+ and CagA-) was studied in 120 patients with duodenal ulcer (DU). CagA+ was found in 78 patients (65%); CagA(-)--in 42 (35%). Diagnostic criteria of symbiosis between Helicobacter pylori and macroorganisms have been established. They describe normal mucous structure, absence of CagA+ and G-cell(More)
Campylobacter pylori were detected in 70% of patients with diseases of the digestive tract. It was found endoscopically that presence of Campylobacter pylori is always accompanied by changes of gastric mucosa, mainly in the antral region. There were no specific symptoms characteristic of Campylobacter pylori gastritis. There was a close correlation between(More)
We propose a general equilibrium model to study the spatial inequality of consumers and firms within a city. Our mechanics rely on Dixit and Stiglitz monopolistic competition framework. The firms and consumers are continuously distributed across a two-dimensional space, there are iceberg-type costs both for goods shipping and workers commuting (hence firms(More)
