The present study aimed to characterize bone microarchitecture assessed by computed tomography (CT) at the calcaneus in male subjects suffering from osteoporosis. Seventy-nine subjects were assessed (45 with osteoporosis and 34 control subjects matched for age). Osteoporosis was defined according to the World Health Organization classification either at the(More)
Pancreas transplantation with systemic venous drainage of the graft causes elevated plasma levels of insulin, known to be a potent regulator of plasma lipoprotein metabolism. We studied 11 post-type I diabetic pancreas-kidney transplant recipients, 9 type I diabetic kidney transplant recipients displaying peripheral hyperinsulinemia due to subcutaneous(More)
We measured serum cholesterol, triglyceride, and lipoprotein Lp(a) concentrations in serum of 37 patients with massive proteinuria of different origin, comparing values with those for age- and sex-matched controls and finding significantly increased Lp(a) concentration in the total group of patients compared with controls. Lp(a) concentration was not(More)
Few data are available on measurements of serum concentrations of complement proteins in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Therefore we measured serum levels of C3, C4, and C1-esterase inhibitor (C1-INH) as well as C-reactive protein (CRP) in 167 patients with Crohn's disease (CD) and 111 patients with ulcerative colitis (UC). Median serum concentrations of(More)
Chronic urticaria is a disease of unknown etiology. One type of the disease is accompanied by gastrointestinal complaints. The aim of the present study was to determine the prevalence of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection in patients with chronic urticaria, and measure the effectiveness of eradication of HP on the skin disease. Patients with chronic(More)
The effect of apolipoprotein E genotype and polymorphisms of lipoprotein lipase gene on plasma postprandial triglyceride levels in familial combined hyperlipidemic subjects and their relatives have not been sufficiently studied. This study included sixteen familial combined hyperlipidemic parents (G1): age: 52 +/- 9 years with total-cholesterol: 7.2 +/- 1.7(More)
In type I (insulin-dependent) diabetic patients, peripheral hyperinsulinemia due to subcutaneous insulin treatment is associated with increased high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, and also with an altered surface composition of HDL. Pancreas grafts also release insulin into the systemic rather than into the portal venous system, giving rise to(More)
Transplantation of pancreatic gland with systemic venous drainage of the graft causes elevated plasma levels of insulin. To examine lipid metabolism triglyceride clearance capacity, lipolytic enzymes, plasma lipids and lipoproteins were quantified in pancreas-kidney transplant recipients and compared them to lipid parameters of healthy controls and those of(More)
We report the long-term metabolic observations made on 37 patients after simultaneous pancreas and kidney transplantation. Plasma C-peptide levels were above the physiological range in all patients and there was no significant difference between patients undergoing delayed duct occlusion (n = 12) or those with drainage of exocrine secretion into the urinary(More)
