The effect of various doses of ionizing radiation on the osteoinductive properties of decalcified bone matrices implanted heterotopically and on the rate of remodeling of nondecalcified bone grafts implanted orthotopically in allogeneic systems was studied. Decalcified bone matrices and nondecalcified bone grafts were preserved by lyophilization or by(More)
Fifty-one simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplants (SPKT) were performed between 1988 and 2004 in patients of mean age 34 years and 23 years duration of diabetes treatment. All kidney and pancreas recipients were on maintenance hemodialysis therapy prior to SPKT. The pancreas with duodenal segment and the kidneys were harvested from cadaveric heart-beating(More)
Comparison of the effectiveness of three techniques used for the programmed augmentation of mandibular bone, which is part of the therapeutic procedure used in pre-prosthetic, pre-implantology surgery. The techniques are based on stimulation of natural events continuously present in living bone, that is, the process of bone remodelling. We compared the(More)
Various cell lines, including SV40 virus-transformed human and mouse fibroblasts, established fibroblastic and epithelial cell lines, as well as their hybrids were tested for osteoinductive properties versus presence of Concanavalin A receptors. No correlation was found between the presence of these receptors and osteoinductive properties of cells. So far,(More)
The organization of the hepatic microvascular network has been widely studied in recent years, especially with regard to cirrhosis. This research has enabled us to recognize the distinctive vascular patterns in the cirrhotic liver, compared with the normal liver, which may explain the cause of liver dysfunction and failure. The aim of this study was to(More)
Disturbances in bone marrow vascularisation can be one of the causes of diabetic osteopathy. The aim of the study was to answers the question if microalbuminuria as a results of capillary injury can be a sign of bone mineralisation disorders in IDDM renal sufficient patients. We examined 60 IDDM patients (30 women without menstruation disturbances; 30 men;(More)
It has been found that ionizing radiation induces stable paramagnetic centers in the crystalline lattice of bone hydroxyapatite (HA). These defects, which can be detected and measured by electron spin resonance (ESR) spectrometry, can be treated as a new kind of biologic marker and used for the following: (1) evaluation of crystallinity of bone mineral,(More)
OBJECTIVE Total body and lumbar spine bone mineral density (BMD-TB, BMD-L) and total body bone mineral content (BMC-TB) were measured to establish the course of bone demineralization in anorexia nervosa and the clinical factors influencing BMC-TB and BMD changes during treatment. METHOD Forty-two girls with DSM III-R anorexia nervosa, age 14.7+/-2.4(More)
