It is possible that electromagnetic field (EMF) generated by mobile phones (MP) may have an influence on the autonomic nervous system (ANS) and modulates the function of circulatory system. The aim of the study was to estimate the influence of the call with a mobile phone on heart rate variability (HRV) in young healthy people. The time and frequency domain(More)
AIM The aim of the study is an analysis of distribution of visual evoked potentials (VEP) latencies in the group of schizophrenic and healthy subjects. METHOD A study was carried out on a group of 30 patients (8 males and 22 females) with a DSM-III-R diagnosis of schizophrenia (disorganised schizophrenia--5, paranoid schizophrenia--12, residual(More)
Visual evoked potentials (VEPs) were recorded in a group of 20 operators aged 25-45 years during two sessions, before and after a 5-hour work at computer terminals, in order to assess visual system fatigue. The outcomes were referred to the norms established for the age-matched population of 30 subjects not exposed to professional contact with computers.(More)
OBJECTIVES The present study was undertaken in order to verify the hypothesis stating that patients with depression exhibit some abnormalities concerning a cerebral symmetry. For this purpose, an analysis of the relationship between the VEPs (Visual Evoked Potentials) results and the depressive symptoms intensification, as well interrelation between(More)
PURPOSE The authors examined the number of interstitial cells of Cajal-like cells (ICC-LCs) in obstructed ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) in comparison with normal UPJ specimens and age-related changes. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 20 human formalin fixed, paraffin-embedded specimens of intrinsic UPJO from children at the mean age of 8.1 years (age(More)
OBJECTIVES The most important factors in the pathogenesis of cognitive disorders in diabetes mellitus (DM) are metabolic changes directly caused by hyperglycemia. Impairment of cognitive function is accompanied by a decrease in cerebral insulin. Insulin improves cognitive processes, including somatosensoric cognitive functions. Cognitive disorders are(More)
Sirtuins, silent information regulator 2 (Sir 2) proteins, belong to the family of NAD+-dependent enzymes with deacetylase or mono-ADP-ribosyltransferase activity. These enzymes are responsible for processes of DNA repair or recombination, chromosomal stability and gene transcription. In mammals, sirtuins occur in seven varieties, from 1 to 7 (SIRT1–SIRT7),(More)
Interstitial cells of Cajal (ICCs) were discovered in the gastrointestinal tract over 100 years ago and since then numerous digestive tract pathologies involving ICCs have been described. Many researchers explored ICCs presence and function in the upper urinary tract. Currently, we know that ICCs have potential plasticity, their own spontaneous activity and(More)
The aim of the study was to examine endothelial function in patients with hematological malignancies treated with high-dose chemotherapy followed by hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. The studies were conducted on 43 consecutive patients qualified for HSCT following high-dose chemotherapy based on the current standards. Then, due to exclusion(More)
