BACKGROUND Pentose phosphate pathway (PPP) represents a potentially 'protective' mechanism in hyperglycaemia due to shunting of glycolytic intermediates into PPP reactions. We hypothesized that thiamine status (plasma and erythrocyte levels of thiamine and its esters) together with genetic variability in key PPP enzymes-transketolase (TKT), transaldolase(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the work was to find biomarkers identifying patients at high risk of adverse clinical outcomes after TAVI and SAVR in addition to currently used predictive model (EuroSCORE). BACKGROUND There is limited data about the role of biomarkers in predicting prognosis, especially when TAVI is available. METHODS The multi-biomarker(More)
While the pathogenic role of dicarbonyl stress and accelerated formation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) to glucose intolerance and to the development of diabetic complications is well established, little is known about these processes in gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), a condition pathogenically quite similar to type 2 diabetes. The aims of(More)
OBJECTIVE Pentraxin-3 (PTX3) appears to have a cardioprotective effect through a positive influence against postreperfusion damage. This study assesses the prognostic value of PTX3 level and its relationship with clinical parameters and markers of oxidative stress and nitric oxide metabolism in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI).

INTRODUCTION Patients with cardiogenic shock (CS) are at a high risk of developing infectious complications; however, their early detection is difficult, mainly due to a frequently occurring noninfectious inflammatory response, which accompanies an extensive myocardial infarction (MI) or a postcardiac arrest syndrome. The goal of our prospective study was(More)
BACKGROUND Omentin is an adipokine expressed predominantly in visceral adipose tissue, with adipose tissue stromal cells being the main source. Very little is known about the relationship between the genetic variability of the omentin gene and pathophysiology of obesity, although omentin is believed to play an important role in visceral obesity development.(More)
