Objective and design: It is believed that the magnitude of the systemic inflammatory response induced by percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) impacts on the long-term outcomes in patients with stable angina (SA) and unstable angina (UA). We aimed to determine whether an inflammatory response appears in in-stent restenosis (ISR) patients undergoing(More)
To assess the value of serial C-reactive protein (CRP), serum amyloid A (SAA), tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) and interleukin-10 (IL-10) evaluation in the risk stratification in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention. The study was designed as a prospective cohort trial with a 1-year follow-up. Eighty patients (70 with stable(More)
The aim of this study was to prove whether anthropogenic pollution affects antioxidant defense mechanisms such as superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase (CAT) activity, ferritin (FRT) concentration and total antioxidant status (TAS) in human serum. The study area involves polluted and salted environment (Kujawy region; northern-middle Poland) and Tuchola(More)
BACKGROUND Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection is one of the most common chronic infections in humans. While a causative relationship between H. pylori infection and several gastrointestinal disorders has been well established, the association between this condition and the development of atherosclerosis and coronary artery diseases (CAD) is less(More)
INTRODUCTION Within the last 8 years, it has become evident that hepcidin has a diagnostic and therapeutic potential. Therefore, it is a great need to establish the reference interval for hepcidin and its precursor. The aim of this study was to assess the impact of age and sex on serum prohepcidin concentration in healthy adults. MATERIAL AND METHODS 100(More)
The aim of the study was to assess the compatibility of IgA antiendomysium antibodies (IgAEmA) and IgA tissue transglutaminase antibodies (IgAtTG) in treated patients with coeliac disease and to estimate the value of the IgAtTG-ELISA as a marker of gluten-free diet maintenance. The study included 71 children and young adults (46 F, 25 M) aged from 6 years(More)
UNLABELLED Fibrinolysis is involved in numerous systemic processes, including inflammation and tissue remodeling. Up to date researchers focused on hemostasis problems in patients with cirrhosis. There are little data about fibrynolysis in patient with chronic viral hepatitis. The aim of the study was to evaluate selected fibrinolytic parameters in children(More)
BACKGROUND Various chronic infections, including Chlamydia pneumoniae (C. pneumoniae), are regarded as one of the possible factors which initiates, progresses and exacerbates atherosclerotic process. The relationship between C. pneumoniae infection and haemostatic factors which also may promote atherosclerosis, has not yet been established. AIM To assess(More)
