RATIONALE The meta-Analysis of Cell-based CaRdiac study is the first prospectively declared collaborative multinational database, including individual data of patients with ischemic heart disease treated with cell therapy. OBJECTIVE We analyzed the safety and efficacy of intracoronary cell therapy after acute myocardial infarction (AMI), including(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an immune-mediated central nervous system disease characterized by inflammation, demyelination and axonal degeneration. Cytokines are proven mediators of immunological process in MS. The aim of this study was to investigate whether there is a difference in the production of the tumor necrosis factor alpha(More)
The aim of this research was to determine the importance of tracking the dynamics of changes of the hemostatic system factors (aggregation of thrombocytes, D-dimer, PAI-1, antithrombin III, protein C and protein S, factor VII and factor VIII, fibrin degradation products, euglobulin test and th activated partial thromboplastin time--aPTPV) in relation to the(More)
BACKGROUND Experimental and first clinical studies suggest that the transplantation of bone marrow derived, or circulating blood progenitor cells, may beneficially affect postinfarction remodelling processes after acute myocardial infarction. AIM This pilot trial reports investigation of safety and feasibility of autologous bone marrow-derived progenitor(More)
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of two of the most important functional CYP1A2 variations −3860G > A and −163C > A on carbamazepine pharmacokinetics in Serbian pediatric epileptic patients. The study involved 40 Serbian pediatric epileptic patients on steady-state carbamazepine treatment. Genotyping for −3860G > A and −163C > A was(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the distribution of CYP2C8 variants *3 and *5, as well as their effect on carbamazepine pharmacokinetic properties, in 40 epileptic pediatric patients on carbamazepine treatment. Genotyping was conducted using polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP), and allele-specific(More)
BACKGROUND Rett syndrome (RTT) is a severe neurodevelopmental disorder that represents the second most common cause of mental retardation in females. However, incidence and prevalence of RTT are scarcely reported. METHODS A retrospective study included all patients with RTT diagnosed between 1981 and 2012 in Serbia. Estimation of incidence and prevalence(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Treadmill test combined with myocardial perfusion scintigraphy (MPS) is a commonly used technique in the assessment of coronary artery disease. There are many patients, however, who may not be able to undergo treadmill test. Such patients would benefit from pharmacological stress procedures combined with MPS. The most commonly used(More)
INTRODUCTION Persistent left superior vena cava, a rare congenital abnormality, can complicate placement of pacemaker leads through the subclavian vein. A left-sided approach is usually preferable in such cases. CASE REPORT We reported a case in which we began a single-chamber pacemaker implantation procedure via a right subclavian approach (because of(More)
Brain abscesses were neurosongraphically diagnosed in 3 out of 44 neonates who had confirmed purulent meningitis. In two cases, the cause was Proteus mirabillis, whereas in one the cause could not be isolated. The ultrasound finding indicated abscess cavities localised in the frontal (in one case bilaterally) and temporal regions of the CNS. Neurosurgical(More)
