The activities of antioxidant enzymes (AOE) and amounts of glutathione adduct of Hb (Hb ASSG) in erythrocytes of chronic epileptic patients treated with mono or mixed therapy of phenobarbital (PB), carbamazepin (CBZ) and valproic acid (VPA), were evaluated and the results were compared with those for normal individuals. The activity of superoxide dismutase(More)
OBJECTIVE Interleukin 6 (IL6) has the ability to influence each level of the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenocortical (HPA) axis. The aim of the study was to test whether IL6 concentration correlates with the adrenal cortex response to ACTH in healthy humans. We postulated that higher basal IL6 concentration would be associated with the higher cortisol response(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The aim of our study was to evaluate and compare the differences in the parameters of portal hypertension in two groups of patients with liver cirrhosis, with and without hepatic encephalopathy (HE). METHODOLOGY 30 patients with liver cirrhosis, 17 (56.7%) of them with HE, were investigated by clinical, neurological, laboratory, endoscopic(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The aim of the study was detection of abdominal infections by 99mTc- antigranulocyte antibodies. METHODOLOGY Total of 36 patients with clinical suspicion on abdominal or gastrointestinal infections was investigated. RESULTS There were 23 true positive (TP) findings (one pulmonary abscess, 2 subhepatic abscesses after surgery, 2 perianal(More)
OBJECTIVE Metastases of the adrenal gland are a frequent finding in patients with malignant tumors like bronchogenic carcinoma or breast cancer. Only limited and conflicting data on adrenocortical function in these patients are available. DESIGN Cross-sectional study. METHODS We investigated the impact of adrenal macrometastases on adrenocortical(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The aim of the study was the evaluation of the clinical validity of immunoscintigraphy with 99mTc labeled antibodies for the detection of metastases and recurrences of colorectal carcinomas. METHODOLOGY We examined 17 patients with colorectal carcinomas. Scintigraphy was performed with anti-CEA MoAb 99mTc-BW 431/26. RESULTS Recurrences(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The aim of the study was evaluation of the morphology of the blood vessels, blood flow velocity and direction with Doppler ultrasound (D-US) and correlation with the relative liver parenchymal perfusion assessed by hepatic radionuclide angiography (HRA). METHODOLOGY Real-time, D-US and HRA were performed in 108 patients. RESULTS In(More)
BACKGROUND Intraabdominal or mesenteric fibromatosis is a rare benign nonmetastatic neoplasm that appears as a sporadic lesion or in patients with familiar polyposis. Its evolution is unpredictable. About 10% of the cases shaw a very aggressive growth. CASE REPORT We presented a 22-year-old woman in whom an aggressive intraabdominal fibromatosis had(More)
The aim of this study was the detection of helicobacter pylori (HP) infection and estimation of this infection relationship with age, gender, blood groups and Rhesus factor, as well as the assessment of the accuracy of the method. A total of 227 patients with gastritis were examined. Blood ABO groups and Rh positivity were determined using standard tests.(More)
Inflammatory pseudotumours are very rare with hardly over hundred cases reported in literature. The disease is rare in children. The tumour is usually solitary, rarely multifocal. We report on two women old 48 and 49 years. One had a solitary tumour, and the other had four multifocal inflammatory pseudotumours which were surgically removed. Preoperatively(More)
