The aim of this prospective study was to analyze the incidence of serious infections and changes in immunological markers after liver transplantation (LT) in a cohort of patients with hepatitis C virus (HCV). This study included 34 patients who had LT, 20 patients with HCV etiology (HCV group), and 14 patients with alcoholic etiology (non-HCV group).(More)
BACKGROUND Plasma BNP and NT-proBNP are often used as interchangeable parameters in heart failure care in clinical practice. In our previous study we have shown that inflammation was able to induce increased NT pro BNP in a hospital cohort with chronic heart failure in the elderly, indicating that NT-proBNP/BNP ratio should be evaluated concomitantly with(More)
UNLABELLED Heart failure patient in the elderly is a growing population with poor prognosis. However this patient population has not been well studied. The present study is based on a hospital cohort heart failure registry during 2005 at Heart Failure Centre Medicine, Dept. of Medicine, SU/Sahlgrenska Hospital. In this study 150 patients were enrolled(More)
Plasma BNP and NT-proBNP are often regarded as interchangeable parameters in assessing heart failure (HF) severity and prognosis. Renal failure results in disproportionate increases of NT-proBNP and an increased NT-proBNP/BNP ratio. Low kidney function is therefore considered particularly when NT-proBNP is used to assess HF. The purpose of this study was to(More)
Orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) is a successful therapy for patients with end-stage liver disease, and infection remains a significant cause of morbidity and mortality for patients undergoing this procedure. To assess humoral and cellular immunity markers as potential risk factors for development of infection, 46 consecutive liver transplant(More)
Marin-Amat's syndrome is a rare associated movement, wherein contraction of orbicularis oculi is brought about by opening of the jaw in association with aberrant regeneration of facial nerve. This is the opposite of the Marcus-Gunn phenomenon; hence it has also been called Inverted Marcus-Gunn Phenomenon. Moreover in this case the opened the mouth or moved(More)
BACKGROUND Accumulating data suggest an immunopathogenic role for the complement system as a causative element in pregnancy loss (PL). Formation of pathogenic antibodies with activation of the classical pathway may have a role, but this mechanism fails to characterize the majority of cases with recurrent PL. We established the prevalence of(More)
OBJECTIVE Primarily to develop a multimarker score for prediction of 3-year mortality in older patients with decompensated heart failure (HF). DESIGN Prospective cohort study. SETTING Secondary care. Single centre. PATIENTS AND BIOMARKERS: 131 patients, aged ≥65 years, with decompensated HF were included. Assessment of biomarkers was performed at(More)
