Therapy for SIBO must be complex, addressing all causes, symptoms and complications, and fully individualised, it should include treatment of the underlying disease, nutritional support and cyclical gastro-intestinal selective antibiotics. Expand
Survey on cannabis use in Parkinson's disease: Subjective improvement of motor symptoms
An anonymous questionnaire sent to all patients attending the Prague Movement Disorder Centre revealed that 25% of 339 respondents had taken cannabis and 45.9% of these described some form ofExpand
High-performance liquid chromatographic determination of tramadol and its O-desmethylated metabolite in blood plasma. Application to a bioequivalence study in humans.
Simultaneous HPLC determination of the analgetic agent tramadol, its major pharmacodynamically active metabolite (O-desmethyltramadol) in human plasma is described and the validated analytical method was applied to pharmacokinetic studies of tramadl in human volunteers. Expand
Difficult-to-control arterial hypertension or uncooperative patients? The assessment of serum antihypertensive drug levels to differentiate non-responsiveness from non-adherence to recommended therapy
The study used data from 84 patients with arterial hypertension who underwent SDL assessment to verify compliance with the recommended treatment and suggests that an assessment of SDLs might be helpful before an extensive evaluation is initiated for difficult-to-control hypertension. Expand
Significant decrease in prevalence of Helicobacter pylori in the Czech Republic.
The overall prevalence of H. pylori infection in the general population has fallen substantially in the Czech Republic over the past 10 years and there was little variation in smoking prevalence across categories of smoking. Expand
Body indices and basic vital signs in Helicobacter pylori positive and negative persons
There was a negative effect of Hp positivity on systolic and diastolic blood pressure in subjects below 25 and a relatively strong positive effect in subjects over 65 years, and unmeasured factors related to social and family environment may cause the apparent association between HpPositivity and children's growth and blood pressure.

Comparison of different protocols for 13C‐urea breath test for the diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori infection in healthy volunteers
Citric acid solution as a test drink and 20‐ or 25‐min breath sampling intervals are optimal for the 13C‐UBT in healthy volunteers, and Optimal intervals for breath sampling are at times 20 or 25 min after 12C‐urea ingestion. Expand
Blood pressure and stature in Helicobacter pylori positive and negative persons.
Chronic H. pylori infection had no impact on body weight, body mass index and vital signs either in adults or children and adolescents, and appeared to be associated with short stature in children. Expand
A Capillary GC Method Using Nitrogen Phosphorus Detection for Determination of Topiramate in Patients with Epilepsy
A new capillary gas chromatographic assay with nitrogen phosphorus detection for the determination of topiramate in the serum was developed and validated. The sample procedure included aExpand
Analytical monitoring of trinitrotoluene metabolites in urine by GC-MS. Part I. Semiquantitative determination of 4-amino-2,6-dinitrotoluene in human urine.
A routine procedure based on the semiquantitative determination of 4-amino-4,6-dinitrotoluene in urine samples by gas chromatography (GC-MS) is developed and constitutes the first step of a broad project focused on this occupational medicine problem. Expand
