INTRODUCTION The role of hypertension in chronic renal failure (CRF) progression was described in 1914 by Volhard and Fahr [1], in 1940 by Rite and colleagues [2] and subsequently many studies described the effects of various antihypertensive drugs on regulation of blood pressure and CRF progression. The recent experimental and clinical studies especially(More)
Immunoradiometric assay (IRMA) for serum prolactin (PRL) measurement can give falsely low values, leading to unnecessary surgery in patients with prolactinomas. We studied clinical and biochemical features of patients with pituitary macroprolactinomas in whom plasma PRL levels had been underestimated due to the so-called "high dose PRL hook effect". This(More)
The percentage of platelets that retain discoid form correlate with their post-transfusion viability and therefore they may act as a simple indicator for the quality of the stored platelet concentrates (PCs). The morphological score (MS) of platelets, given by Kunicki, requires the index of different forms of platelets: discoid, spherical, starlike and(More)
INTRODUCTION Leydig cell tumor is a rare sex-cord tumor with sex steroid secretion (mostly testosterone). All clinical symptoms and signs are the consequence of extremely high testosterone level. The diagnosis is confirmed using hormone analysis. CASE DESCRIPTION A 46-year-old woman with previously normal reproductive function was admitted to the hospital(More)
In order to monitor changes of the nutritive status of hemodialyzed patients, antropometric and laboratory parameters of the population of hemodialyzed patients in 1988 vs. 1994 have been compared. Antropometric parameters were measured by the same investigator. The results show absence of significant difference between antropometric parameters (body weight(More)
The present study examined the effect of intermittent oral high doses of 1-alpha-OHD3 in combination with a pharmacological dose of 24,25(OH)2D3 on parathyroid hormone (PTH) secretion. Twenty hemodialysis (HD) patients (10 males, aged 26-72 years, on regular hemodialysis for 7-128 months) with secondary hyperparathyroidism resistant to long-term low-dose(More)
The effects of captopril on morphologic changes and clinical course of adriamycin (ADR) nephropathy in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) were examined. After ADR infections rats were divided into two groups: ADR-C group (n = 20) given captopril (60 mg/kg per day) and ADR group (n = 19) receiving no antihypertensive treatment. SHR were examined every 6(More)
