In recent years, increasing attention has been paid to the contribution of genetic factors to variability in patient pain threshold and the efficacy of pain management. One of the genes implicated in pain pathology and treatment response is interleukin 6 (IL6). The aim of the present study was to evaluate the association between IL6 (rs1800795: –174G>C) and(More)
The aim of this study was to determine whether the contact sports change the perception of pain as assessed by the cold pressor test (CPT), and if the test induces the same reaction of the cardiovascular system in contact athletes and non-athletes. The study involved 321 healthy men; 140 contact athletes and 181 students of the University of Szczecin(More)
Pain in patients with hip osteoarthritis appears long before surgery, and requires effective management as it affects patient comfort and daily activities. Therefore, the search for factors influencing response rate to analgesics is mandatory. In recent years, increasing attention has been paid to genetic factors underlying pain threshold and treatment(More)
The aim of this study was to characterise the temperament of combat athletes in comparison to that of individuals who do not practise any sports with regard to pain sensitivity measured with the cold pressor test (CPT) and pressure pain threshold (PPT). The study involved 284 healthy men, aged 18 to 43years. The first group consisted of 198 combat athletes,(More)
The GSTP1 gene encodes glutathione S-transferase P1, which is a member of the glutathione S-transferases (GSTs), a family of enzymes playing an important role in detoxification and in the antioxidant defense system. There is some evidence indicating that GSTP1 c.313A>G polymorphism may be beneficial for exercise performance. Therefore, we decided to verify(More)
The 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase gene (MTHFR) A1298C polymorphic variant is a candidate to explain the individual differences in trainability and response to exercise training. Therefore, the aim of the study was to verify whether the A1298C polymorphism influenced the aerobic and anaerobic performance as well as body and mass composition in(More)
In order to achieve higher efficiency of training and thus better athletic performance, new research and diagnostic methods are constantly being developed, particularly those that are non-invasive. One such a method is thermography, suitable for quantitative and therefore objective evaluation of variables, such as changes in the temperature of the skin(More)
