In several studies, hemodialysis (HD) patients treated with recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEPO) because of renal anemia showed increased levels of soluble adhesion molecules. The purpose of the study was to investigate the changes of soluble P-selectin (sSELP) and its relationship to platelet activation during a single HD session in patients with(More)
Clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) is the most frequent type of kidney cancer. In order to better understand the biology of ccRCC, we accomplished the gene profiling of fresh tissue specimens from 11 patients with the renal tumors (9 ccRCCs, 1 oncocytoma and 1 renal B-lymphoma), in which the tumor-related data were compared to the paired healthy kidney(More)
OBJECTIVE Exhaled nitric oxide (eNO) has been suggested as a marker of airway inflammatory diseases. The level of eNO is influenced by many various factor including age, sex, menstrual cycle, exercise, food, drugs, etc. The aim of our study was to investigate a potential influence of circadian variation on eNO level in healthy subjects. METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Alpha1 -antitrypsin deficiency (AATD) predisposes individuals to early-onset emphysema. Despite its prevalence, especially among patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, AATD is still underdiagnosed. The aim of this study is to identify individuals with lung disease and severe AATD in central-eastern Europe. METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND The role of the beta2-adrenergic receptor (ADRB2) genotype in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is unclear. In patients with acute exacerbations of COPD (AECOPD), we assessed the role of ADRB2 haplotypes in morning lung function and in the bronchodilator response to salbutamol. MATERIAL/METHODS In 107 patients with(More)
Nitric oxide (NO) has an influence on airway physiology by mediation in ciliary activity, inflammation, host defence, bronchial tone, and pulmonary vascular resistance. However, the clinical relevance of the measurement of nasal NO (nNO) in different physiological and pathological conditions has yet to be established before it can be used as a diagnostic(More)
BACKGROUND New biologic therapies blocking TNF undoubtly constitute a considerable advancement in the management mentioned diseases, but are also associated with higher risk of activation of tuberculosis. METHODS An assessment of tuberculosis activation rate in the group of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile idiopatic arthritis, ankylosing(More)
Serum levels of alpha 1-antitrypsin were studied in 80 patients with chronic bronchitis. As a manifestation of the inflammatory response, nonsignificant increase was recorded compared to the group of healthy subjects. In discordance with literary data, no significant differences were found between bronchitics smokers and non-smokers. In 5 patients (6.2%),(More)
In December 2011, a major revision of GOLD 2011 guidelines was published based on the evidence-based medicine. The goal of GOLD 2011 is to determine the severity of the disease, its impact on the patient's health, and the risk of future events; all of which eventually guide therapy. A combined COPD assessment according to GOLD 2011 considers the patient's(More)
Haloperidol is an antipsychotic agent that primarily acts as an antagonist of D2 dopamine receptors. Besides other receptor systems, it targets sigma 1 receptors (σ1Rs) and inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptors (IP3Rs). Aim of this work was to investigate possible changes in IP3Rs and σ1Rs resulting from haloperidol treatment and to propose physiological(More)
