Growth factors as vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), produced by the endothelial cells, take an essential part in pathological and physiological angiogenesis. The possibility of angiogenesis modulation by application of laser radiation may contribute to the improvement of its use in this process. Thus, the aim of the study was to investigate the(More)
Thrombin activatable fibrinolysis inhibitor (TAFI) is a plasma zymogene (procarboxypeptidase B) which can decrease fibrinolysis and thus act as a haemostatic factor. TAFI is now extensively studied in many complications as well as in physiological and complicated pregnancy. The question we posed in the present study was whether TAFI antigen is present in(More)
The present study's purpose has been to examine the development of the human suprarenal glands (SGs) during the prenatal period. Special attention was paid to sexual dimorphism and the differences between the parameters of the right and left SGs. Specimens were obtained from 187 human fetuses spontaneously aborted between the 4th and 7th months of(More)
UNLABELLED The analysis of bibliography referring to the role of haemostasis disturbances in pathogenesis of ulcerative colitis in children revealed considerable discrepancies in the obtained findings of the study and some controversies in their interpretation. The aim of the study was the assessment of tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) and its inhibitor(More)
INTRODUCTION The natural anticoagulant-activated protein C system plays an important role in the pathogenesis of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the concentration of protein C (PC), protein S (PS), thrombomodulin (TM), selectin E (sSelE), and thrombin-antithrombin complex (TAT) in patients with idiopathic pulmonary(More)
The healing process and the angiogenesis associated with it, is a very important but currently poorly understood area. Low level laser therapy (LLLT) has been reported to modulate the process of tissue repair by stimulation of cellular reaction such as migration, proliferation, apoptosis and cellular differentiation. The aim of this work was to evaluate the(More)
Diabetes, including type 1 and type 2, is associated with the hypercoagulable state. The aim of this study is to evaluate the concentration of selected hemostatic parameters and vascular endothelial growth factor-A (VEGF-A) in diabetic subjects. The study was conducted in 62 patients with diabetes. Group I consisted of 27 patients having uncontrolled(More)
BACKGROUND A normal coronary angiogram is found in about 20% of patients who undergo coronary angiography due to chest pain. In some of them syndrome X is diagnosed. Endothelial dysfunction is one possible cause of this pathology. AIM To compare the endothelial function estimated by two different methods in patients with typical or atypical anginal pain(More)
In postmenopausal women, an increased leptin concentration and reduced levels of ghrelin and adiponectin were observed. The aim of this study was to evaluate the concentrations of the active form of ghrelin, total ghrelin, leptin receptor, lipoprotein(a) (Lp(a)), and plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 (PAI-1) in postmenopausal women who received oral or(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate whether the type of heart vasculature is in any way related to the length of the main stem of the left coronary artery. The study was inspired by publications describing a shorter main stem of the left coronary artery in adults with left coronary artery predominance, also associated with a worse clinical(More)
