Since atherosclerosis has been proven to be an inflammatory disease, it is obvious that the proper treatment for dyslipidemia should not only correct lipid parameters but also inhibit inflammation. Monocytes and monocyte-derived proinflammatory cytokines are widely known to be involved in the formation and rupture of the atherosclerotic plaque. The aim of(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the levels of lipid and extralipid parameters in patients with atherogenic dyslipidemia. We investigated the lipid-lowering therapeutic efficacy of fenofibrate and its extralipid influence on oxidized low-density lipoprotein (oxLDL), C-reactive protein (CRP), Fibrinogen, factor VII and plasminogen activator type 1(More)
Reservoirs situated along a river continuum are ecosystems where rates of transfer of suspended matter and associated micropollutants are reduced due to sedimentation, accumulation, and biological and physical transformation processes. Among the micropollutants, PCDDs and PCDFs are substances that are highly toxic and carcinogenic for humans and animals.(More)
High resolution Time Interval Measurement Systems (TIMS) can be applied in experimental physics, ultrasonic flow meters, distance meters, or clock period meters. In this paper the problem of single-stage, high resolution TIMS design and implementation in programmable CMOS FPGA devices is discussed. Different architectures of TIMS are compared. Moreover,(More)
Many pharmacological investigations have demonstrated that antidepressant agents profoundly affect serotonergic and noradrenergic neurotransmission. The molecular mechanisms by which these drugs exert their therapeutic action have not been clearly established. In our study, the possibility that antidepressant drug action is associated with dopamine(More)
The current study evaluates the impact of sewage sludge and urban reservoir sediment on changes in total and Toxic Equivalency (TEQ) PCDD/PCDF concentration in soil and phytotoxicity measured using three test species: Lepidium sativum, Sinapis alba, and Sorghum saccharatum, during 5 weeks of Cucurbita pepo L. cv 'Atena Polka' (zucchini) cultivation. 'Atena(More)
The aim of the study was to compare the effect of treatment with two different statins on plasma fibrinogen levels in patients with primary isolated hypercholesterolemia. Sixty three patients enrolled into the study were randomly divided into two groups, treated with simvastatin (20 mg/d) or fluvastatin (40 mg/d), respectively. Plasma lipid profile and(More)
The effects of bilateral microinjections of kainic acid 1.0 microgram and 2.5 micrograms into the hypothalamus on the behaviour of rats were studied controlling this behaviour during 2 weeks by the method of Lat. Moreover, the exploratory activity and irritability of the animals were assessed during that time period. After 2 weeks the activity of(More)
Rats were treated ip with MAO inhibitos (MAO-I): nialamid (NL), pivalylbenzylhydrazine, tranylcypromine, pheniprazine (Ph) or pargyline, and the leve of total, free and bound acetylcholine (Ach) as well as the acetylcholinesterase (Ach-E) activity were estimated in four parts of rats brain 2 or 16 hr after the treatment. These parameters were estimated also(More)
