Using the prospective Hungarian childhood diabetes register, a nationwide case-control study was carried out to investigate the possible role of various non-genetic factors as risk determinants for type 1 diabetes in childhood. A questionnaire (covering family characteristics, social status, fetal and perinatal events, breast-feeding habits, infectious(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to estimate the accuracy of panoramic radiographic signs predicting inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) paresthesia after lower third molar removal. STUDY DESIGN In a case-control study the sample was composed of 41 cases with postoperative IAN paresthesia and 359 control cases without it. The collected data included "classic"(More)
UNLABELLED Correlation of the plasma levels of insulin-sensitizing, anti-inflammatory and anti-atherosclerotic adiponectin with HDL has been demonstrated. However, its relation to HDL-bound paraoxonase 1 (PON1) has not been clarified. The association of serum PON1 activity with findings of metabolic syndrome was investigated in three age and sex-matched(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the aggregation of cardiovascular risk factors (hyperinsulinaemia, impaired glucose tolerance, dyslipidaemia, and hypertension) in 180 (77 female, 103 male) obese and 239 control children. Blood glucose, serum insulin and lipid levels were determined from blood samples taken after an overnight fast. Oral(More)
BACKGROUND This study was undertaken to evaluate the effects of maternal central hemodynamics on fetal heart rate patterns near term, with special regard to the maternal body position. METHODS Brief non-stress test and bioimpedance cardiography were carried out in the supine position, then repeated in a full left lateral decubitus position of mothers with(More)
OBJECTIVES The validity of equations for the calculation of resting metabolic rate (RMR) were studied and new predictive equations were developed. STUDY DESIGN The RMR was measured in a sample of 371 10- to 16-year-old prepubertal and postpubertal children. The study group included 193 male (116 nonobese and 77 obese) and 178 female (119 nonobese and 59(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To report on minor modification of laparoscopic Vecchietti vaginoplasty and to examine the quality of sexual life after the operation. DESIGN A retrospective study to examine the role of minor modification during laparoscopic Vecchietti operation to prevent injuries and to evaluate the sexual function of patients with neovagina. SETTING(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the present study was to examine the association between the darkening of the root on the preoperative panoramic radiograph and intraoperative inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) exposure. PATIENTS AND METHODS In the present study, 116 mandibular third molar surgical extraction cases with darkening of the third molar roots on the preoperative(More)
UNLABELLED The relationship between resistin, one of the adipokines, and metabolic syndrome is not fully elucidated. Altered activity of the HDL-associated antioxidant enzyme paraoxonase 1 (PON1) that participates in the antioxidant defense mechanisms of HDL may have an important role in the obesity-related accelerated atherosclerosis. Inverse associations(More)
AIM Leptin, which was discovered only a decade ago, is a peptide that informs hypothalamic areas about the energy balance of the body. New research findings, has suggested a possible role of leptin in eating disorders as well. Few data are available about the relationship between leptin, insulin and glucose metabolism in the pathomechanism of eating(More)
