The pathogenesis of neurologic complications of Lassa fever is poorly understood. A Nigerian patient had fever, disorientation, seizures, and blood-brain barrier dysfunction, and Lassa virus was found in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) but not in serum. The concentration of Lassa virus RNA in CSF corresponded to 1 x 10(3) pfu/mL, as determined by a quantitative(More)
37 patients with atherosclerosis of lower extremities and the mean claudication distance of 300-500 m (Fontaine 11 degrees) were subjected to pharmacotherapy with pentoxyfilline 600 mg twice daily, and walking exercise tests on a treadmill. The concentrations of ATP and magnesium ions in erythrocytes were assessed in the patients in resting condition, and(More)
Experiments under varied gravitational accelerations as well as in density-adjusted media showed that sensation of gravity in protists may be linked to the known principles of mechanosensation. Paramecium, a ciliate with clear graviresponses (gravitaxis and gravikinesis) is an ideal model system to prove this hypothesis since the ciliary activity and thus(More)
In the group of patients (n = 19), with advanced atheromatous ischemia of the legs the presence and titres of rum IgG, IgA, and IgM antibodies for Chlamydia pneumoniae (Cp) were measured. Those were compared with controls (n = 12). Additionally in the patients undergoing surgery (revascularisation or amputation), specimens of atheromatous arteries were(More)
