The aim of the study was to estimate the prevalence of mild cognitive impairment (MCI), depressive syndrome cases, and its comorbidity, and to identify predictors of these conditions. Methods. 276 diabetics elders were screened for MCI and depressive symptoms. Detailed information of history of diabetes, and data of BMI, HbA1c, and blood lipids were(More)
The aim of the study was to determine the serum levels of adiponectin, leptin and IL-1 β in elderly diabetic patients with and without mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and to examine the associations of these markers with clinical and cognitive parameters. A biochemical evaluation was performed of 62 seniors with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) and MCI, and 132(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to determine the serum levels of CRP, IL-6 and TNF-α in elderly diabetic patients with depressive syndrome alone or with coexisting mild cognitive impairment (MCI). METHODS 276 diabetics elders were screened for depressive symptoms (using Geriatric Depression Scale: GDS-30) and MCI (using the Montreal Cognitive(More)
BACKGROUND Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) is involved in the up-regulation of intercellular adhesion molecule 1 (ICAM-1). Allergic rhinitis is often associated with bronchial hyperresponsiveness. OBJECTIVE We investigated the relationship between allergic airway disease severity and serum concentrations of soluble ICAM-1 (sICAM-1) and TNF-alpha(More)
BACKGROUND Nitric oxide (NO) is the endogenous molecule involved in regulatory, protective, and defensive mechanisms. Although exhaled NO (ENO) has been used to monitor patients with asthma, possible usage of ENO in allergic rhinitis (AR) still needs to be evaluated. The authors wanted to determine the levels of NO exhaled orally both out of the pollen(More)
BACKGROUND We assessed the course of treatment in patients with persistent allergic rhinitis (AR) treated with montelukast, levocetirizine, or desloratadine alone or combinations of antihistamine and montelukast. METHODS A 32-week randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover, double-armed study in 40 adult patients with history of persistent(More)
BACKGROUND Both histamine H1- and H2-receptors (H2R) were found on regulatory T (Treg) cells; however, there is a paucity of information regarding the role of H2R in Treg function. This study aimed to investigate the effects of natural allergen stimulation and specific immunotherapy (SIT) on H2R expression in Treg cells in patients with allergic rhinitis(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to evaluate serum levels of advanced glycation end products (AGEs), receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE), and C-reactive protein (CRP) in elderly patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus with and without mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and to determine the predictors (including AGEs, RAGE, and CRP levels) of(More)
BACKGROUND Diabetes, depression and aging have been associated with pro-inflammatory and prothrombotic state. AIM The aim of the study was to determine the plasma levels of thrombomodulin, plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) and fibrinogen in elderly diabetic patients with and without depressive symptoms and to examine factors (including(More)
BACKGROUND A genetically determined overproduction of specific immunoglobulin E (IgE) underlies many diseases like asthma or allergic rhinitis. IgE as well as tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), and intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) play a critical role in the induction and maintenance of inflammation. While the correlation between IgE and atopy is(More)
