Within the context of current international initiatives on the control of persistent organic pollutants (POPs), an overview is given of the scientific knowledge relating to POP sources, emissions, transport, fate and effects. At the regional scale, improvements in mass balance models for well-characterised POPs are resulting in an ability to estimate their(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate dental care habits and knowledge of oral health in age- and sex-matched adult long and short duration insulin-dependent diabetics and non-diabetics. Ninety-four long and 86 short duration diabetics and 86 non-diabetics, aged 20-70 years, participated in the study. All subjects answered a questionnaire with 38(More)
The aim of this study was to define a population of diabetics exhibiting an increased risk of developing severe periodontitis by comparing the medical status of 2 groups of diabetics, 1 with no/minor periodontal disease and 1 with severe periodontal disease. The case-control study consisted of 2 parts, a baseline study and a follow-up study. 39 case-control(More)

The study involved 82 subjects with long- and 72 with short-duration diabetes and 77 non-diabetics, all aged 20-70 years. The clinical and radiographic examination(More)
In a prospective, double-blind, intraindividual, cross-over, placebo-controlled multicenter study, clinical and biochemical effects of once daily postprandial dose regimens of 50, 100, and 200 mg spironolactone were investigated in 45 outpatients with primary hypertension, WHO (World Health Organization) Stage I-II. Each of the three actire therapy periods,(More)
The hormonal responses to the stimulus of changing from resting supine to sitting upright for 15 minutes were assessed in 20 patients with hypertension, divided into 2 groups. 8 patients had essential hypertension (EH) and 12 unilateral renal artery stenosis (URS). The prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) concentration, plasma renin activity (PRA), angiotensin II (A-II)(More)
We studied a group of 12 hypertensive patients (seven men, five women) with unilateral renal arterial stenosis, and evaluated the morphological criteria on renal angiography for the significance of the stenosis and compared them with the prostaglandin-E2 (PGE2), plasma renin activity (PRA), and angiotensin II (ANG II) concentrations in both renal veins.(More)
