Various mechanisms are involved in the process of ethanol-induced tissue impairment. Oxidative stress and its effects are among the most important. We compared the effects of antioxidant vitamins (vitamin C and E in combination) and steroids (testosterone and nandrolone separately) on the toxicity of ethanol in rats. Animals (male Wistar rats, n = 48) were(More)
Stress is considered to be a risk factor of several diseases. The following hypotheses were tested: (1) single exposure to an intensive stressor is followed by endothelial stimulation and/or damage to endothelial cells, (2) potential stress-induced endothelial cell damage is reduced by repeated pretreatment with pentoxifylline and (3) pentoxifylline(More)
Endothelium-protective properties of pharmacological agents may be assessed by using different experimental models of endothelial dysfunction or injury. The model of endothelial dysfunction induced by vessel perfusion with polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) was used for evaluation of pentoxifylline (PTX) effects on vasoconstrictor responses to noradrenaline(More)
OBJECTIVE To present an overview of trials and discussion focused on the diagnostic value of hysterosalpingography in the diagnosis of tubal disease. SUBJECT Review article. SETTING Sanatorium Pronatal, Prague. CONCLUSIONS Hysterosalpingography may be a screening test for tubal patency. Data demonstrates high specificity of hysterosalpingography for(More)
Hyperestrogenemia and change in the estrogen-androgen level ratio in men are supposed to be possible risk factors for several cardiovascular diseases. To study the male rabbit spiral strip reactivity (aorta, renal artery, femoral artery) after 1-month sex hormone administration (estradiol or testosterone twice per week) the method of isomeric contraction(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare clinical and embryological characteristics in donor cycles triggered for final oocytes maturation with Pregnyl 10 000 IU i.m. versus triptorelin 0.2 mg s.c. in the same patients in two sequential stimulation cycles. The aim of the study is to decrease the risk of the development of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) at high(More)
