the great social importance of this problem [1–5]. More than five million people die every year from CS; in most countries, stroke is the second or third most common cause of death [6]. CS has an important role as a cause of population disability – less than 20% of people who have had CS are able to return to work and nearly 40% require nursing care [2, 5,(More)
Three forms of adenylate cyclase have been detected in Y. pestis: membrane-bound, cytoplasmic and extracellular. Extracellular adenylate cyclase has been purified so as to achieve a homogeneous state, and some of its physicochemical parameters have been investigated. In the process of purification the initial preparation of this enzyme has been subjected to(More)
Homosynaptic depression of H-reflex was studied in 25 healthy persons and 33 patients with hemiplegia. The mean duration of the homosynaptic depression in healthy persons was 5200 ms. After the initial relative facilitation the time course of the homosynaptic depression corresponded to a logarithmic function of the interval between the conditioning and(More)
A new classification of motor disorders in patients after brain hemisphere's stroke as well as with its sequelae was proposed on the basis of clinical electromyographic studies. The classification validity was confirmed by mathematic statistic methods. The classification was composed of motor syndromes and is based on the following criteria: the severity of(More)
Inhibition of the soleus H-reflex was studied in hemiparetic postapoplectic patients and in control group of patients without motor disorders. The depression of H-reflex was caused by stimulation of ipsilateral peroneal nerve and presented in two successive waves (D1 and D2). The former of them corresponds to presynaptic inhibition. The size of both waves(More)
Effects ofYersinia pestis capsular antigen and toxin on the cells of experimental antimals are described. The antigen of bacterial fraction I enhanced the oxidative burst of white mice peritoneal leukocytes but suppressed the activity of guinea pig leukocytes. The effect of “murine” toxin was quite the contrary. Moreover, the effects of the toxin on the(More)
Correlation between clinical structure of motor deficit and indices of stimulation electromyography was studied in 108 patients with hemispheric stroke. Methods of statistic analysis were applied including devising of histograms, Pareto diagrams, determination of the narrowness of correlation ratio. The analysis revealed complex relationship between the(More)
