Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), especially active disease, is associated with considerable changes in body composition, lipids, adipokines and insulin sensitivity. Metabolic changes, such as increased total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels, occur even in preclinical RA. Active RA is associated with decreased lipid levels, BMI, fat and muscle(More)
Frontal areas are thought to be the coordinators of working memory processes by controlling other brain areas reflected by oscillatory activities like frontal-midline theta (4-7 Hz). With aging substantial changes can be observed in the frontal brain areas, presumably leading to age-associated changes in cortical correlates of cognitive functioning. The(More)
Representations in working memory (WM) are temporary, but can be refreshed for longer periods of time through maintenance mechanisms, thereby establishing their availability for subsequent memory tests. Frontal brain regions supporting WM maintenance operations undergo anatomical and functional changes with advancing age, leading to age related decline of(More)
Autoimmune-inflammatory rheumatic diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA) have been associated with autoimmune atherosclerosis leading to increased cardiovascular risk. Traditional risk factors, genetics, as well as the role of systemic inflammation including inflammatory cells, cytokines, chemokines, proteases, autoantibodies, adhesion receptors and(More)
Dexamethason in a total dose of 15 mg was given in 125 cases of premature labour 48 hours before delivery to prevent the development of respiration distress syndrome. Clinically, the incidence of RDS was 14,5% (18 cases) in the treated group, while in the control group it was 27,7% (32 cases out of 119). Owing to RDS two prematures died in the treated(More)
The results of foam tests carried out on postnatal stomach contents from 267 neonates were analyzed to see whether a correlation can be found between the incidence of RDS and the foam-test values. The test proved to be a good indicator in the recognition of RDS. If ++, + positive, on negative foam-tests are obtained development of RDS can be expected in(More)
During daily encounters, it is inevitable that people take risks. Investigating the sequential processing of risk hazards involve expectation formation about outcome contingencies. The present study aimed to explore risk behavior and its neural correlates in sequences of decision making, particularly in old age, which represents a critical period regarding(More)
