Lower respiratory tract infections are a heterogeneous group of disorders induced by plenty of pathogens. Atypical bacteria play an important role in the respiratory tract pathology. In our study 90 patients with acute infection of the respiratory tract were examined in serological screening test for Mycoplasma pneumonia and Chlamydia pneumoniae. It was(More)
Chemokines and T-lymphocytes play an important role in lower respiratory tract inflammation. This study evaluated the concentration of IL-8 and count of T-lymphocytes expressing adhesion molecules LFA-1, Mac-1, Lsel and their correlation in patients with asthma and COPD in periods of exacerbation and clinical improvement (after seven days of(More)
Amyloidosis is a group of biochemical disturbances, leading to extracellular deposition of misfolded protein fibril's. It can be of primary, secondary or hereditary (familial) origin. The disorder is known from 150 years, and as already 23 fibril precursor proteins have been identified. Its symptoms can be systemic, localized; some forms don't produce any(More)
The category of atypical respiratory infection involves viruses, bacteria and rickettsia. These micro-organisms can play a marked role in the exacerbation an asthma course but also participate in its development. Authors discuses both aspects, reporting own observations. The knowledge of real importance of atypical infections in asthma remains to be(More)
The pathogens of atypical respiratory infections form a big heterogeneous group of different microorganisms. The classical ones belong to bacterial species of Mycoplasma pneumonaie, Chlamydia pneumoniae and Legionella pneumophila. This category comprises also some viruses and rickettsia. In many cases they are responsible for the asthma course exacerbation.(More)
In the base of bronchial asthma is a chronic inflammatory process which takes place in bronchial mucous membrane. The main cells of allergic reaction are: mastocytes., basophils, eosinophiles and others. There are many factors released from them in various periods of allergic inflammation. Evaluation of a concentration of these factors may be very usefull(More)
