The aim was to assess the relationship between eNOS 4a/b and -786T/C polymorphisms with coronary artery disease (CAD), obesity and diabetes mellitus. Total number of 1313 patients underwent coronary angiography, 939 had significant CAD (stenosis of > or = 1 coronary artery > or = 50%), 222 had smooth coronary arteries. Patients with insignificant(More)
The lytic properties of 21 bacteriophages constituting a new typing set for Proteus were examined in 507 Proteus mirabilis and 29 P. vulgaris strains isolated from patients and healthy subjects. Comparison of their morphological, serological, genetic and lytic properties showed that, in the Myoviridae and Podoviridae families, some phages were so closely(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of this paper is to elucidate the relation between laboratory markers and coronary artery disease (CAD). METHODS The study involved 1254 consecutive patients with suspected or known CAD referred for coronary angiography. The blood samples including blood cell count, C-reactive protein, fibrinogen, uric acid, creatinine, and lipid(More)
A total of 2087Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates collected during the period 1994–1997 were used as starting material. Out of 1704 in-patient isolates, 299 strains were selected for the preparation of phage lysates but only five strains provided stable lysates,i.e., maintained the ability to be repeatedly and completely lysed by the appropriate phage in the(More)
The objective of this study was to assess the efficacy and safety of liposomal heparin spray-a new formula of topical heparin delivery. This was a randomized, multicenter, controlled open clinical trial with 2 parallel groups. Forty-six outpatients with clinical signs of superficial venous thrombosis (SVT) were treated with either topical liposomal heparin(More)
In the 1996/97 period, 1,413 Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PA) strains were isolated from 843 patients of the Brno teaching hospitals of St. Anne and Bohunice together with small groups from other hospitals. In the same period, 203 PA strains, used as controls, were isolated from 187 patients treated outside hospitals. Statistical evaluation was based on 1,023(More)
UNLABELLED One of the most serious complications after orthotopic transplantation of the heart (OTH) is graft rejection. Its early detection can help successful control. The diagnostic gold standard is myocardial biopsy, it is however not always supreme. We tried to find out whether some modern echocardiographic methods can provide further valuable(More)
In 18 patients with hypercholesterolaemia (total cholesterol > or = 6.7 mmol/l or LDL > or = 4.0 mmol/l a standard and Doppler echocardiographic examination was made before and after 27 +/- 7 months hypolipidaemic treatment leading to a drop of the cholesterol levels of at least > or = 1 mmol/l. Except for hypercholesterolaemia these patients did not suffer(More)
The authors evaluated retrospectively 224 patients with ischaemic heart disease. These patients were subjected to an ergometric loading test on a bicycle ergometer followed by angiography of the coronary arteries. With regard to the site of the increased amplitude of R waves during the loading test the patients were divided into seven groups which were(More)
