Objective. To describe the clinical characteristics of IPEX syndrome in a child with FOXP3 mutation. Clinical Case. A boy aged 2.3 years was born from first normal pregnancy with a weight of 3420 gr. Family History. Two brothers of the mother died before the age of 3 years with severe infections, diarrhea, erythroderma, and elevated immunoglobulins class E(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this study is to assess the cost of using continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion to treat children with type-1diabetes in Bulgaria, considering changes in body mass index (BMI) and the glycated hemoglobin. The study was performed from the perspective of the Bulgarian National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) and patients. METHODS(More)
A neurotoxin 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) was introduced to 1, 2 and 3 day old male Wistar rats. Falck-Hillarp histochemical fluorescent method was used to analyze hypothalamic and hypophysial structures containing catecholamines. Statistically reliable decrease in catecholamine fluorescence intensity in hypothalamus and hypophysis, accumulation of(More)
Open-field behaviour and emotionally differently reinforced learning were studied in male Wistar rats with bilaterally ablated Locus coeruleus. Histochemical analysis of the hypothalamic structures was carried out. Decrease of investigating activity and attention was found as well as disturbances of learning with emotionally-negative (painful)(More)
For 6 months the rats were kept on 20 degrees ethanol. Then, the rats could choose whether to drink alcohol (A) or water. The rats formed 2 groups: those preferring A and those preferring water. The control rats were kept on water. The function of hypothalamus monoamine- and peptidergic systems were disturbed following chronic A treatment.(More)
Falk's histochemical fluorescent method was used to study monoamine (MA)-containing structures in isolated hypothalamus nuclei and in the neurohemal region of the medial eminence (ME) in 40 male rats under the conditions of a long-term stress (6 months) which was caused by a repeated weak electrodermal stimulation. A statistically significant decrease in(More)
The posterior neurohypophysis (PNH)-pars intermedia complex of the wild and pond carp, Cyprinus carpio L., has been studied by light, fluorescence and electron microscopy. "Gomori-positive" neurosecretory fibres are abundant in the main trunk of the neurohypophysis as well as its roots penetrating the pars intermedia. Terminals of these fibres are in(More)
"Falck-positive" monoaminergic neurosecretory cells (M-NSC) are found in stage I-II sturgeon larvae in the dorsal zone of the preoptic nucleus (PN) by means of fluorescence and electron microscopy. Single poorly differentiated M-NSC are located mostly among the ependymal cells. At this stage the M-NSC have very short dendrites protruding into the third(More)
