We examined in vitro antioxidant capacity of polyphenolic extract obtained from the wood of oak Quercus robur (QR), Robuvit, using TEAC (Trolox equivalent antioxidant capacity) method and the effect of its intake on markers of oxidative stress, activity of antioxidant enzymes, and total antioxidant capacity in plasma of 20 healthy volunteers. Markers of(More)
Method of lipoprotein determination on polyamideacryl gel Lipoprint enables an exact quantification nonatherogenic and atherogenic plasma lipoproteins. For its use in human medicine this method was recently approved by FDA. According to majority of nonatherogenic, or atherogenic lipoproteins in their spectrum this method can distinguish nonatherogenic type(More)
Majority of studies that focused on the influence of abdominal obesity on lipoprotein profile, were conducted in the fasting conditions. The effects of visceral fat accumulation on postprandial lipoprotein concentrations have not yet been studied in details. We therefore focused on the postprandial lipoprotein profile in otherwise healthy men and women with(More)
OBJECTIVES The mean platelet volume (MPV) and red cell distribution width (RDW) have recently arisen interest because of their association with an increased cardiovascular risk. The aim of our study was, therefore, to determine whether an association exists between MPV, RDW and lipoprotein sub-fractions, and to show the impact of statin therapy on these new(More)
UNLABELLED Regression of atherosclerosis is a key aspect of preventing further coronary artery disease and understanding which cell type forms smooth muscle cells in atherosclerotic fibrous caps will aid in reducing CAD. Atherogenesis is a complex interplay of cells migrating and proliferating into the vascular wall. CD34 positive hemapoetic stem cells are(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Arterial hypertension doubles the risk of coronary heart disease, heart and kidney failure, and peripheral arterial disease. Less variation in diurnal ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) patterns may affect mortality outcome. Therefore, as hypertension occurs in over 95% of older subjects, the prognostic value of dipping status(More)
Our goal was to investigate the effect of short term exercise on fasting and postprandial lipoprotein profile. Healthy sedentary men exercised 20 min for four days. The intensity of exercise was modulated to maintain 75–80 % of a calculated HRmax. Before and after the exercise program, fasting and postprandial (4 h after standard meal) concentrations of(More)
Recommendations from the cardiological professional companies working in the area of primary prevention of cardiovascular diseases put an emphasis on regular aerobic physical activity. Its positive effect on both cardiovascular and overall mortality has repea-tedly been proven by the observations of prospective and cross sectional epidemiological studies.(More)
Type 2 diabetes mellitus leads to the typical known form of dyslipidaemia among the patients. This dyslipiademia type re-presents prognostically important type of atherogenic dyslipiadaemia, that significantly increases the risk of atherothrombosis. Estimation of the size of lipoprotein particles with Lipoprint method among newly diagnosed, untreated(More)
OBJECTIVES Favorable metabolic changes have been observed in many in vitro and animal studies after application of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2). Metabolic changes after hyperbaric oxygen therapy, especially focused on lipoprotein subfractions, have not been described in humans. Our aim was to investigate possible alteration in concentration of lipoprotein(More)
