Incidence of orthostatic hypertension is estimated at 5% but is even more prevalent in borderline hypertension and autonomic neuropathies. The aim of this study was to develop a potential model to investigate orthostatic hypertension. We used normotensive and hypertensive Wistar rats to analyze responses and diurnal variations of arterial blood pressure,(More)
In a certain area of Szolnok county, 5,978 live births occurring in the period 1963-1965 were studied by the optimal epidemiological model. Of the study population, 5,433 children (91%), were identified. It was completed by 211 children, thus the total material involved 5,644 cases, and 67 congenital cardiovascular malformations were detected among them.(More)
A survey was planned for establishing the point prevalence at birth of congenital heart disease and for assessing at the same time the efficacy of a screening for such anomalies. This model included: (1) exact determination of the population under survey; (2) approximately complete ascertainment of all persons in the population studied; (3) identical(More)
Since only scarce data are available on the immune response against heat shock proteins (HSP) in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), we have measured with an ELISA method serum levels of IgG, IgA, and IgM antibodies to mycobacterial HSP65 and human HSP60 in 66 patients with Crohn's disease (CD), 42 patients with ulceratiVe colitis (UC), and 126 age-and(More)
Microgravity and simulated microgravity may cause cardiovascular deconditioning, but mechanisms of instantaneous responses to inverse-orthostasis are not studied. Hence, we investigated transient and steady state cardiovascular changes by combining the tilt technique with cardiovascular telemetry. Normotensive and NO-deprived hypertensive Wistar rats were(More)
The molting cycle in insects is regulated by the fluctuating levels of ecdysteroids. Twenty-four hours prior to the pupal molt in Manduca sexta steroid titers are relatively high and they fall to very low levels at 4 hr before the molt. Several physiological events accompanying molts have been shown to require the rise and then the subsequent decline of(More)
Subtractive hybridization has been widely used for the identification of differentially expressed genes. Here we describe a simple, sensitive strategy of subtractive hybridization that involves binding the driver poly(A)+ RNA pool to paramagnetic Dynabeads Oligo (dT)25. After hybridization with target cDNA, the molecules common to both pools are removed.(More)
All first-degree relatives of 81 index patients with isolated ventricular septal defects were examined cardiologically in sample one. The congenital abnormalities in first-degree relatives of 296 index patients affected ventricular septal defects were studied by questionnaire in sample two. (The relatives reported as having congenital cardiovascular(More)
An attempt was made to estimate the occurrence of ventricular septal defect in Hungary. The study was based on data derived from three surveys. Point prevalence at birth of isolated ventricular septal defects amounted to 1.33 +/- 0.34%, 1.39 +/- 0.31% and 1.77 +/- 1.12%, respectively. Considering the diagnostic difficulties and other distorting factors, the(More)
