PURPOSE OF THE STUDY To evaluate if renal angioplasty (PTRA) in patients with transplanted kidney and renal artery stenosis (TRAS) can have long-term effect on hypertension and renal function. MATERIALS AND METHODS Within a 24-year time period, 58 PTRAs in 55 adults (three times Re-PTRA) with transplanted kidney were performed. The group included 34 males(More)
The fractional rate of cholesterol esterification in very low density lipoprotein- and low density lipoprotein-depleted plasma (FERHDL) was studied in normolipidemic subjects and in individuals with hyperlipidemia and proven coronary artery disease (CAD). The FERHDL was significantly higher than the FER in whole plasma and was significantly higher in normal(More)
The relationship between the fractional rate of cholesterol esterification (FERHDL) in very low density lipoprotein (VLDL)- and low density lipoprotein (LDL)-depleted plasma and the particle size distribution of high density lipoproteins (HDL) were studied in: a) a control group of 9 apparently healthy men (42 +/- 11 years); b) 15 septuagenarians (76 +/- 6(More)
OBJECTIVE Mutations in the BRCA1 gene confer a high risk for the development of breast or ovarian cancer. The aim of this study was to establish the frequency and spectrum of BRCA1 mutations in Czech breast or ovarian cancer families. SUBJECTS AND METHODS We have screened 28 patients with early-onset cancer and 54 patients from risk families for germ-line(More)
BACKGROUND Detection of melanoma cells in peripheral blood is a promising method for monitoring haematogenous spread of melanoma cells. It enables us to detect early metastasis and to better stratify candidates for adjuvant immunotherapy. Inconsistent data on the sensitivity and clinical relevance of this method have been reported. STUDY DESIGN We(More)
The benefit of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) of transplant renal artery stenosis for ischemic nephropathy may be adversely affected by rejection or other complications. As a result, assessment of the effect of PTA on renal function or blood pressure is often difficult. In this paper, we evaluated the effect of PTA using the method of(More)
To evaluate the role of insulin and hypertriglyceridaemia in the regulation of renal haemodynamics and sodium handling in insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM), 11 IDDM patients without microalbuminuria and 13 weight-, age-, protein intake- and sex-matched healthy control subjects were studied. Clearances of inulin (Cin), para-amino-hippuric acid(More)
The antidiuretic action of a number of vasopressin analogues has been measured in the rat and man in water diuresis. These analogues had the following categories of structural alteration: a) substitution of -CH2CH2-(dicarba) and -SCH2-(6-monocarba) for the natural -SS- bridge between residues 1 and 6, b) changes in the nature of the C-terminal tripeptide(More)
