[Homocysteine and its role in pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease and other neurodegenerative disorders].
Homocysteine (Hcy) has recently become the focus of interest in the research on Parkinson's disease (PD) and other neurodegenarative disorders. Chronic treatment with levodopa (LD), considered the standard treatment for PD, leads to an increase in homocysteine concentration in serum and cerebro-spin...
[Atypical case of teenager fatal poisoning by butane as a result of gas for lighters inhalation against his will].
Inhalatomania with volatile organic compounds is a still present phenomenon among Polish young adolescents. Conscious, voluntary exposition on such substances may result in serious health consequences, including sudden death in the course of acute intoxication. In this paper, atypical case of death...
[Hypoparathyroidism and hypogonadism as a clinical manifestation of hemochromatosis].
We present a case of a patient in whom hypoparathyroidism developed as a complication of hereditary hemochromatosis and was followed by hypogonadism, representing an atypical clinical manifestation of this disorder. In the article, we describe the diagnostic and treatment strategies undertaken in th...
[Phenomenon of remodeling and adjustment the topology of the calcaneus with a solitary cyst--case report].
Solitary cyst is a place of osteolytic bone loss. In this paper presents the biomechanical aspect of the remodeling and adaptation of the topology of the calcaneus suffering from this disease, which leads to the avoidance of pathological fracture.
[The comparison of 4th, 5th and 6th year medical students knowledge of rules and practical skills in the interpretation of electrocardiogram...
We wanted to better define in which year the students acquire the most of their clinical skills and determine if 6th year students have sufficient knowledge and skills to adequately perform in their future career. We additionally wanted to understand from which source students draw their knowledge o...
[Higher incidence of alveolar lymphocytes (AL) apoptosis in smokers depends on BCL-2 expression and specific response to tumor necrosis fact...
We have previously described the increased apoptosis rate in smokers alveolar lymphocytes (AL) that was independent from the FASL/ FAS system activation. Consequently, the role of intrinsic apoptosis pathway and other ligand/death receptor pairs as TNFalpha/TNFR1 and TRAIL/DR4 important for apoptosis...
[Saliva cotinine determination using high-performance liquid chromatography with diode - array detection].
We analyzed 18 samples of saliva derived from patients smoking volunteers from the Department of Conservative Dentistry and Periodontology, University of Medical Sciences. University of Medical Sciences and the Chair and Department of Endocrinology, Metabolism and Internal Medicine, University of Me...
[Awareness of health hazards in view of demonstrated behavioural patterns both conducive and detrimental to health].
Credibility of physicians depends not only on their knowledge and achievements in therapies they manage but also on daily manifested behavioural patterns, directed at maintaining and augmenting own health as well as prevention of diseases. A patient will hardly trust members of medical staff if their...
Stem cell niches exposed to tobacco smoke.
Stem cells (SC) were identified in both fetal and adult tissues. They appear a great potential for proliferation and differentiation. SC functions are affected by their local microenvironment, known as a SC niche, composed of extracellular matrix (ECM) and neighboring cells of other types. Both fetal...
[Evaluation of hand injury severity].
We looked at the range of injury, likely total length of treatment, final functional result and possible amount of posttraumatic disability. Created HTSS scale was compared to Hand Injury Severity Score (HISS) and their statistically significant correlation (p < 0,001) was found. We have also found...
