The triple therapy of Helicobacter pylori eradication prevents repeated bleeding from stomach ulcer. The aim of this one-way blind prospective study was to evaluate the efficiency of the two-week triple therapy for Helicobacter pylori eradication in preventing renewed bleeding in patients with stomach ulcer within one year. This research included 60(More)
In the research we included a total of 207 subjects with the dismissal diagnosis of "mycetismus", who were treated at the Department of Infectious Diseases, General Hospital Osijek, during the 1983-1992 period. 32 of them were children. There were 44.93% of men, 39.61% of women and 15.45% of children. The latent time > 6 hours was determined in 51 (25%) and(More)
A clinical, retrospective and non-comparative study was undertaken to assess the clinical efficacy and tolerability of azithromycin in the treatment of community-acquired pneumonia caused by Legionella pneumophila. A total of 16 patients with a serologically confirmed diagnosis of Legionnaires' diseases were included. Azithromycin was administered orally at(More)
92 patients treated for tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) in the Department for Infectious Diseases, University Hospital Osijek, over a 22-year period (1973-1995) were analysed. The patients were mostly forestry workers. The appearance of the disease followed the biological activity of the tick, with the largest number of affected individuals recorded between(More)
Six female patients with encephalitis, mean age 36.5 (17-60) years, were admitted to the hospital during the 2000-2001 influenza A (H1N1) epidemic in the Osijek--Baranja County. In three (50.0%) patients, the manifestation of encephalitis occurred on day 4 or 5, and in two (33.3%) patients within 24-48 hours of the onset of influenza symptoms. The disease(More)
The aim of this investigation was to determine the effect of exercise training on the levels of plasma cytokines and acute phase reactants in the early post acute myocardial infarction (AMI) period. Sixty patients were enrolled into this three-week cardiac rehabilitation study. The mean time from AMI was 7.08 +/- 1.60 days, and the patient mean age was 60(More)
Determination of anti-citrullinated peptides (anti-CCP) specificity as a predictor of joint erosive changes, correlation between their serum level and radiological damages as well as disease activity score (DAS28). A trial has been conducted on a 211 patient sample fulfilling ACR criteria for rheumatoid arthritis (RA). There was assigned anti-CCP serum(More)
The aim of the research was to show our diagnostic and therapeutic experience with antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) in pregnant women. 36 pregnant women suspect on APS were included in the study: 32 with primary antiphospholipd syndrome (PAPS) and 4 with secondary antiphospholipid syndrome (SAPS). All pregnant women received low-molecular-weight-heparin(More)
To simulate a traumatic lumbar puncture, blood was added to 33 normal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) specimens. A hypothesis was tested if the CSF glucose and CSF lactate were unchanged after contamination with blood. Lactate and glucose here measured in both normal and blood-stained CSF. The estimated contamination of the normal CSF with red cells ranged from(More)
In this paper, we study the existence of Diophantine quadruples with the property D(z) in the ring Z[ √ −2 ]. We find several new polynomial formulas for Diophantine quadruples with the property D(a + b √ −2), for integers a and b satisfying certain congruence conditions. These formulas, together with previous results on this subject by Abu Muriefah,(More)
