AIM To reveal the structural features of the red blood cell membrane in patients with prolonged persistence of hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV). MATERIALS AND METHODS 61 patients with moderate and mild chronic viral hepatitis B and C were examined. A control group comprised 22 healthy donors. Fluorescence of the red blood cell membrane(More)
A hundred and one patients with chronic viral hepatitis (CVH) in the phase of replication were examined. Group 1 comprised 53 patients with CVH in combination with chronic opisthorchiasis. Group 2 (a comparison group) included 48 patients with CVH without opisthorchiasis. According to the etiology of hepatitis, each group was divided into 3 subgroups:(More)
The study included 93 patients (mean age 56.8+/-7.2) with COPD; 22 presented with grade 1 COPD, 36 and 35 with grade II and 111 COPD respectively. The latter group displayed reduced absorption of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates in the small intestine, the degree of dysfunction increasing with the severity of the disease, degenerative/dystrophic changes in(More)
AIM To examine clinical efficacy of combined therapy with reaferon and iodantipirin in patients with chronic hepatitis B and C of moderate activity. MATERIAL AND METHODS 100 patients with confirmed diagnosis of chronic viral hepatitis (CVH) at the stage of replication. All the patients have undergone puncture biopsy of the liver with estimation of index(More)
Fecal elastase-1 was measured in 38 patients with ulcerative colitis to evaluate the functional state of pancreas by enzyme immunoassay with the use of monoclonal antibodies. It was shown that absolute and relative fecal elastase-1 levels in patients with chronic inflammatory intestinal disorders significantly decreased with increased severity of the(More)
The diagnostic significance of serum markers of fibrosis was investigated in 92 patients with chronic viral hepatitis (CVH) by studying the collagenolythic activity of blood, proteasic inhibitor activity, collagen metabolism products (oxyproline fraction), and fibronectin. At the same time, the patients underwent puncture biopsy of the liver, which made it(More)
The researchers evaluated the condition of lipid peroxidation and antioxidant protection system together with biochemical, immunological and morphological values in 117 patients with chronic hepatitis (CH) in virus replication phase (28 patient had CH type B, 66--CH type C and 28--CH type B+C), and estimated the importance of their interrelations to the(More)
The study included 93 patients with grade 1-3 chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in the stable clinical phase. Absorptive function of the small intestine was evaluated by biochemical methods and with the use of radionuclides; plasma tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) levels were measured by an enzyme immune-assay. Trophologic status in 44%(More)
AIM To study the specific features of the nutritional status of patients with persistent chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in relation to the hormone-regulating function of energy exchange in terms of leptin and to concurrently evaluate the functional status of fat and protein digestion and absorption and to measure body fat percentage. To assess(More)
To study the impact of Opisthorchis infestation on the upper digestive tract and small bowel in chronic inflammatory bowel diseases, the authors examined 164 patients with inflammatory bowel diseases, including 71 patients with ulcerative colitis and 45 with Crohn's disease without parasitosis and 48 with chronic opisthorchiasis (31 with ulcerative colitis(More)
