Endotoxin aggression of intestinal origin occurs in 89% of patients with acute myocardial infarction and may be a factor of the induction and/or progression of the disease. The most common sources of endotoxin aggression are Escherichia coli, Bacteroides, Klebsiella, Proteus, and Pseudomonas.
Integral parameters of bacterial lipopolysaccharide concentration and antiendotoxin immunity activity were determined in the blood serum of subjects with two extreme variants of eating disorders: obesity and anorexia nervosa (in its clinical model, long-term starvation). The results of the study showed that obese patients had initially higher endotoxin… (More)
The level of endotoxin and indicators of the activity of anti-endotoxin immunity (the concentration of antibodies against Re chemotype glycolipid and enterobacterial common antigen) were determined in the serum of 174 patients with persistent viral infections (with herpes simplex, hepatitis C, and human immunodeficiency viruses). In HIV-infected patients,… (More)
The involvement of bacterial lipopolysaccharides in atherogenesis is postulated. Excess of bacterial lipopolysaccharides (endotoxin aggression) is observed in the general blood circulation of volunteers who have atherosclerosis risk factors (obesity, diabetes mellitus, stress, haemostatic, renal, intestinal pathology, etc.). The results are optimistic with… (More)
