AIM To determine a relationship between matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) activity and its tissue inhibitors TIMP-1 and 2, tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), bone mineral density (BMD), and bone exchange in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). SUBJECTS AND METHODS Seventy-six patients with COPD and 20 healthy volunteers were examined using(More)
AIM to study a relationship between the serum level of osteoprotegerin (OPG), the markers of bone metabolism, tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), and bone mineral density (BMD) in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). SUBJECTS AND METHODS Fifty-five patients aged 44 to 58 years who had COPD were examined. BMD in the lumbar spine(More)
AIM To analyse informative value of monitoring of NO metabolites concentration in condensate of expired air vapor (EAVC) for definition of bronchial asthma (BA) severity and antiinflammatory effect of basic therapy. MATERIAL AND METHODS NO metabolites concentration in EAVC was measured with Grace's reagent in 76 adults and 180 children in the course of(More)
AIM To estimate the bone mineral density (BMD) in end-stage lung disease (ESLD) and to determine risk factors for reduced BMD and correlations between lung functional parameters and pretransplantation bone mass. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty-five case histories were retrospectively analyzed in patients with ESLD who were to undergo lung transplantation. BMD(More)
