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)
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)
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)
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)
The two major susceptibility genes, BRCA1 and BRCA2, are involved in hereditary breast and ovarian cancer syndrome. Early detection of mutation carriers has crucial clinical importance, as it allows identification of women who may benefit from intensive clinical follow-up or prophylactic surgery. Generally accepted inclusion criteria for BRCA1/2 mutation(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)
The authors examined 34 patients with arterial hypertension, whose glomerular filtration rate ranged from normal to renal failure. The peripheral plasma renin activity (PRA) values were determined before and 30 and 90 min after injecting furosemide. In 17 patients with chronic renal failure treated by haemodialysis and with arterial hypertension, PRA was(More)
We studied the particle size distribution of plasma high-density lipoproteins (HDL) by gradient gel electrophoresis and by assay of cholesterol esterification rate (FERHDL) in plasma depleted of very low (VLDL) and low-density (LDL) lipoproteins in 32 hypertensive women (53 +/- 10 y old) and in an age-matched group of 21 apparently healthy women. There were(More)
Ovarian cancer is one of the most severe of oncological diseases. Inherited mutations in cancer susceptibility genes play a causal role in 5-10% of newly diagnosed tumours. BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene alterations are found in the majority of these cases. The aim of this study was to analyse the BRCA1 gene in the ovarian cancer risk group to characterize the(More)
