Anticyclic citrullinated peptide (anti-CCP) antibodies have been detected in patients with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JRA), particularly in those with polyarticular JIA. We analyzed the presence of anti-CCP antibodies of the IgG class in sera of patients with defined juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) of various subgroups. One hundred and fifty-nine(More)
A total of 209 diabetic children and adolescents aged 6–17 years (mean, 12.6 ± 2.3 years) were examined by ophthalmoscopy, video fluorescein angiography and hemoglobin (HbA1c) tests. Microaneurysms were found in 26% of the children (ophthalmoscopy, 11%; angiography, 23%). The prevalence of retinopathy was 16% in patients aged 6–10 years, 27% in those aged(More)
Blood samples from 1885 individuals of two collectives (Styria in Austria: 997; Franconia in Bavaria, Federal Republic of Germany: 888) were assayed for galactokinase activity. The enzyme activity was estimated by the method of Beutler et al. [1] with the aid of galactose-1-C14. The radioactivity was measured on a Tricarbscintillation counter (Packard). The(More)

In order to investigate the influence of indirect bilirubin to O2-dependent bactericidal mechanism in adult and newborn phagocytes we use the NBT reduction activity of granulocytes and monocytes as index, by infiltrated granulocytes and monocytes in different concentration of indirect bilirubin with or without latex stimulator. The NBT reduction activity of(More)
For evaluation of the development of the hip joints in young infants, between Jun., 1988 and Oct., 1991, 522 hips of the infants under 4 months of age were studied by ultrasonography based on the method well described by Graf.
