Baill., and Eleutherococcus senticosus Maxim) extracts on mental performance, such as attention, speed and accuracy, in tired individuals performing stressful cognitive tasks. The pilot study(More)
The antidepressant-like activity of an extract of the roots of Rhodiola rosea (RR), its combination with piperine containing extract (RPE), pure substances isolated from Rhodiola, such as rhodioloside, rosavin, rosin, rosarin, tyrosol, cinnamic alcohol, cinnamaldehyde and cinnamic acid has been assessed in laboratory animals through application of the(More)
We examined the influence of stable prostacyclin analogues (carbacyclin) and thromboxane A2 (U46619) on atherosclerotic properties of cells: [3H]thymidine incorporation and intracellular cholesterol content. A primary culture of human aortic subendothelial cells derived from atherosclerotic plaques was used. Carbacyclin exerted a direct anti-atherosclerotic(More)

Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is a recessively inherited inflammatory disorder, characterised by recurrent attacks of fever and serositis. Since nitric oxide (NO) is an important mediator of inflammation, the production of NO (assessed as the accumulation of nitrate and nitrite and measured by capillary electrophoresis) in blood plasma of FMF patients(More)
A noninvasive method of quantitative assessment of cerebral blood flow based on heat clearance from brain tissues is described. The rate of heat clearance depends essentially on the blood flow. The employment of microwave techniques permits to warm the investigated brain zone and to record the temperature decrease extracranially. As a thermometer, a(More)
