BACKGROUND Leishmaniasis is a disease caused by protozoan parasites of genus Leishmania. The frequent involvement of Leishmania tropica in human leishmaniasis has been recognized only recently. Similarly as L. major, L. tropica causes cutaneous leishmaniasis in humans, but can also visceralize and cause systemic illness. The relationship between the host(More)
BACKGROUND L. tropica can cause both cutaneous and visceral leishmaniasis in humans. Although the L. tropica-induced cutaneous disease has been long known, its potential to visceralize in humans was recognized only recently. As nothing is known about the genetics of host responses to this infection and their clinical impact, we developed an informative(More)
CNS injuries in brain contusions of a moderate and severe gravity leave lasting EEG traces that can be revealed on examining the patients in the state of sleep and drowsiness, and manifest in the form of pathological oscillations of the slow electrical processes in the second and decasecond intervals. These oscillations have an amplitude of 0.2 to 1.0 mV(More)
In 50 patients with craniocerebral injuries and 50 healthy subjects the duration of motor response of the right and the left hand to light stimulation was examined. It was found that the duration of this response depended on the injury gravity, the localization of the contusion focus in the brain, and the time that had passed since the injury infliction.(More)
Sex influences susceptibility to many infectious diseases, including some manifestations of leishmaniasis. The disease is caused by parasites that enter to the skin and can spread to the lymph nodes, spleen, liver, bone marrow, and sometimes lungs. Parasites induce host defenses including cell infiltration, leading to protective or ineffective inflammation.(More)
