Here, we report on an ion-channel mimetic sensor using self-assembly monolayers deposited onto gold electrodes for electrochemical determination of dopamine. The different compositions of the modification solution consist of corrole-SH and other thiol derivatives used as the "background compounds" such as 1-dodecanethiol (DDT), 6-mercapto-1-hexanol(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to evaluate the antioxidant status in plasma and erythrocytes from patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS). METHODS 16 patients with AS and 16 healthy volunteers were involved in this study. Activities of antioxidant enzymes: superoxide dismutase (SOD) and its isoenzymes - (SOD-Mn) and (SOD-ZnCu), catalase (CAT),(More)
AIM The aim of this randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study was to assess whether a low frequency magnetic field can influence pain intensity, quality of life and sleep, and glycaemic control in patients with painful diabetic polyneuropathy. METHODS Sixty-one patients were randomized into two groups: the study group comprised 32 patients(More)
UNLABELLED A total of 30 patients (ten female/20 male), 9 years to 22 years old (mean age 17.3 years) and 30 healthy teenage controls (mean age 16.4 years) were included in our study. The patients had steroid-sensitive idiopathic nephrotic syndrome (INS) and had completed steroid therapy 4 years to 15 years ago. Height and weight, body mass index (BMI),(More)
Ocular infections are one of the most frequent causes of ailments among the patients coming to ophthalmologic offices. This article presents one of the physical medicine's methods--magnetotherapy--which uses the alternating low frequency magnetic fields in the therapy of viral conjunctivitis and keratitis in a 49-year-old female patient. Basing on the(More)
BACKGROUND Solitary rectal ulcer syndrome (SRUS) is a rare disorder of the rectum but it causes differential diagnosis problems. AIM To determine the potential use of autofluorescence colonoscopy (AFC) in diagnosis of SRUS. MATERIAL AND METHODS We performed 1618 colonoscopies. After the medical history was taken white light colonoscopy was performed.(More)
Uterine myomas represent one of the most common female diseases. Uterine myomas or fibromas are benign, hormone-responding tumours of, respectively, smooth muscles and fibroblasts and their aetiology induces a significant interest. In myomas the presence of aromatase was detected and, in addition, oestrogen was found to be synthesized in myoma cells. The(More)
The aim of this study is to present the physiotherapeutic procedure in patients after total cementless ankle atrhroplastics. It was introduced thus far methods and resources in the way of physics and kinesitherapy, how also methods in physical medicine, which there are introduced to numerous department of medicine also in orthopedics. From reason of small(More)
BACKGROUND Photodynamic therapy (PDT) reveals immune modulatory effect. The aim of the study was to evaluate the influence of 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) mediated photodynamic effect on secretory activity (MIF, MCP-1) of colon cancer cells in vitro both in normoxia and in hypoxia-like conditions. METHODS Two colon cancer cell lines differing in malignancy(More)
Photosensitizers with desirable combinations of chemical, photophysical and biological properties are essential for improving the efficacy of photodynamic therapy (PDT) against various cancers. Chlorins seem to be promising candidates for photodynamic therapy (PDT) owing to their photophysical properties. This paper reports spectroscopic and biological(More)
