Heat shock proteins (HSPs) represent an important element in the body's defense against various damaging factors. The probably also play an important role in the pathogenesis and treatment of several diseases, including autoimmune pathology and neoplasms. Recently, several investigators have focused their attention on the involvement of the HSP70 protein(More)
AIM To estimate the serum alpha1-antichymotrypsin (ACT), alpha1-acid glycoprotein (AGP) and transferrin (Tf) concentrations and to evaluate the microheterogeneity of these acute phase proteins in patients with ulcerative colitis. METHODS Twenty-seven patients with ulcerative colitis (UC) and 17 healthy control subjects were studied. The patients were(More)
Abnormal vitamin K status was documented in patients with chronic kidney diseases (CKD), especially those undergoing hemodialysis. The data related to patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis (PD) are contradictory. Therefore, in the present study we aimed to evaluate vitamin K status in patients with CKD who are treated with continuous ambulatory PD.(More)
INTRODUCTION    Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2) and cholesteryl ester lipase (CEL) may oxidize low-density lipoproteins (oxLDL). OBJECTIVES    The aim of the study was to determine the influence of metformin on the metabolism of atherogenic lipid fractions in relation to Lp-PLA2 and CEL levels, as well as assess consequent improvement in(More)
Pharmacologic effect of the drug results from its metabolism to metabolites showing decreased lipophilic properties and increased solubility in water. Transformations leading to inactivation of the drug are usually conducted by microsomal enzymes combined with cytochrome P-450. Main types of the metabolic reactions involved in the metabolism of exogenous(More)
Ionic liquids (ILs) can be used for embalming and tissue preservation. ILs does not cause tissue damage and the tissue colour remains unaltered after treatment. Microscopical morphology of tissues fixed in ILs is of better quality than that of tissues fixed in formalin. Tissue preservation depends on the type of ILs. Best results were obtained with(More)
Asymmetry of cations and the type of anions play a key role in the properties of ionic liquids (ILs) as fixatives for tissue preservation. 1-Methyl-3-octyloxymethylimidazolium tetrafluoroborate has proven to be a very good fixative, with similar effects as formalin. Our study shows that it is applicable for both histological and immunohistochemical(More)
The aim of the study was a screening assessment of the nutritional status of patients admitted to hospitals and discharged from hospitals. The study was carried out in 4 university hospitals, 4 woivodeship hospitals and 4 district hospitals. In randomly selected 3310 patients (every 10th patient admitted to hospital) anthropometric parameters were assessed:(More)
Changes to patients' lifestyle, especially a modified dietary approach, play a key role in the treatment of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). A balanced, limiting and individually tailored nutritional scheme enables weight loss and an improvement in the clinical picture of NAFLD. According to nutritional recommendations for patients with NAFLD,(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Green tea is known worldwide for its high content of polyphenolic compounds and multifactorial beneficial effects on human health. The role of green tea as an inhibitor of lipid hydrolysis is widely discussed. The aim of the study was to assess the influence of green tea extract on lipid digestion and absorption. METHODS The study(More)
