Elevated plasma homocysteine level promotes atherosclerosis in blood vessels due to, among others, generation of reactive oxygen species and reduction of nitric oxide bioavailability. The aim of this study was to investigate whether melatonin administration reduces plasma homocysteine level in rats consuming increased doses of methionine in the diet. The(More)
Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is a protein that stimulates processes of neurogenesis, the survival of neurons and microglia, stimulates neuroplasticity, and takes part in the differentiation of cells developed in the hippocampus. BDNF is also released from skeletal muscles during exercise and can facilitate cross-talk between the nervous and(More)
Regular exercise is known to improve physiological and functional capacity of many organs due to adaptive processes. We have previously shown that acute exercise in untrained rats results in apoptosis of renal tubular cells and that the apoptotic process seems to be associated with stimulation of angiotensin II, AT1 and AT2 receptors. In this study, we(More)
Life expectancy of patients with liver cirrhosis is closely linked to the degree of liver dysfunction and the occurrence of bacterial infection. An early diagnosis of infection helps to initiate adequate and timely measures and improves outcome of cirrhotic patients. Endocan is a newly recognized biomarker of sepsis. However, there have been no studies of(More)
AIM To investigate the relationship between advanced oxidation protein products (AOPPs) and myocardial injury by comparing the selected biomarker for detecting myocardial injury [high-sensitive troponin T (hs-TnT)] in patients with chronic HCV infection. METHODS AND RESULTS Eighty-eight patients with cirrhosis and 40 healthy control subjects were enrolled(More)
