BACKGROUND Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) belongs to the group of chronic diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, prevalence of which is increasing in the Polish population. The two main clinical types of IBD are ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease (CD). The expression level of the ABCB1/MDR1 gene which encodes P-glycoprotein seems to be of great(More)
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) consists of ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn’s disease (CD), which are complex genetic disorders resulting from the interplay between several genetic and environmental risk factors. The arylamine N-acetyltransferase 2 (NAT2) enzyme detoxifies a wide spectrum of naturally occurring xenobiotics including carcinogens and(More)
A growing body of evidence suggests that some drugs used in cardiovascular diseases may modulate the level of proinflammatory cytokines. In the present study we examined whether nebivolol, a third generation beta-adrenergic blocker, influences lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced serum concentrations of TNF-alpha, IL-1beta, and IL-6 in normotensive (WKY) and(More)
Systemic sclerosis (SSc) belongs to the group of systemic diseases of the connective tissue, which are characterized by a chronic autoimmune inflammatory process. P-glycoprotein, initially associated with the drug resistance in patients with cancer, becomes more and more often a subject of considerations in terms of its significance in the development of(More)
HINTERGRUND UND ZIELE Polymorphismen im ABCB1-Gen, das für das P-Glykoprotein kodiert, können die intrazelluläre Konzentration von Xenobiotika beeinflussen und so zur Entwicklung von Autoimmunerkrankungen, einschließlich des bullösen Pemphigoids (BP), beitragen. In der vorliegenden Studie sollte untersucht werden, ob in einer polnischen Kohorte die C3435T-(More)
BACKGROUND The main types of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) are ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease (CD). There is evidence that, in addition to immunological and environmental factors, genetic factors also play an important role in the pathogenesis of IBD. Determination of polymorphism of CYP2D6 and NAT2 genes encoding I and II phase enzymes of(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Polymorphisms in the P-glycoprotein-encoding ABCB1 gene may affect the intracellular concentration of xenobiotics, and thus contribute to the development of autoimmune diseases, including bullous pemphigoid (BP). The objective of the present study was to investigate whether there is an association between the C3435T and G2677T/A(More)
