The present paper examines the phenomenon of paronymy in the sublanguage of medicine. The study of paronyms plays an important role in the development of terminological competence of future specialists in the field of medicine and healthcare. The authors emphasize the need to pay due attention to terminological paronyms when compiling teaching manuals and developing didactic materials in Latin for students of medical universities. The urgency of organizing the work with these lexical units is determined, on the one hand, by the propaedeutic objective - minimization of difficulties that students may encounter in dealing with special terminology in the process of educational and professional communication; on the other hand, the study of paronyms is aimed at expanding the active and passive vocabulary of medical students...

The sagittal profile of the corpus callosum is available for morphometric measurements of conditioned linear distances when elucidating its age-related changes and sexual dimorphism. But in this case, the opportunity to determine the total area of the sagittal profile of the corpus callosum is lost, while being a more full expression of its digital characteristics. We set the goal to establish the differences between planimetric indices of male corpus callosum of the first and second periods of adulthood and the advanced age...

Roots and rhizomes of Vinca herbacea Waldst. et Kit, were collected during early flowering and fruiting. Рhenophases biologically active substances I and II were obtained by liquid-liquid extraction. Dominant alkaloids: tabersonin, reserpine, maidine, norfluorocurarin and copsinin were obtained after the dispertion in citrare-phosfhate buffer and subsequent TLC. Accelerated restitution of granulocytopoiesis was observed in mice during both irradiation and myelotoxic drug-induced acute leucopenia. Increase in total WBC over 200% was observed after treatment by substance I in drug-induced leucopenia model (fivefold oral administration) and over 130% after treatment by substance I in irradiate mice (fivefold intraperitoneal administration)...

The role of exogenous testosterone (methyltrienolone) in the repair of damaged pancreatic islet and liver cells during alloxan diabetes was studied. Modeling of diabetes was performed through single intraperitoneal injection of Alloxan, with the dose 2 mg per 10 g of body weight. Pancreatic and liver tissues were investigated microscopically using 3-4 µm slices embedded in paraffin and stained with hematoxylin and eosin. Software Adobe Photoshop was used to measure the areas of pancreatic islets as well as areas of necrotic foci in these islets of animals with Alloxan-induced experimental diabetes...

Major problems haunt the physicians who need to delineate the best management strategy for their patients with thyroid nodule is the identification of the most aggressive cases, especially among papillary thyroid cancers, which would benefit from more aggressive therapy and follow up. Beyond its strong correlation with PTC, the BRAF mutation is well described to associate with poor prognosis. The aim of our study was to identify BRAF antibody expression in different hystotypes of the thyroid nodules and assessment of it expression according to the tumor aggressiveness...

It is commonly known that in diabetes mellitus the risk of cardiovascular diseases and mortality increases. The purpose of this study was to determine the specific features of the morphological restructuring of the myocardium in the early stage of experimental diabetes and use the combined impact of powerful antioxidants (Vitamin C and Vitamin E) on the rat myocardium in conditions of alloxan-induced diabetes. The experimental animals were divided into three groups: 40 rats were the target, and 20 rats were the control...

Aim - identify neuroimaging characteristics associated with different post-stroke fatigue (PSF) domains within first 6 months after ischemic strokes. There were enrolled in the study 107 patients with acute ischemic strokes. General PSF and certain PSF domains (global, physical, mental, motivational, activity-related) were measured by multidimensional fatigue inventory-20 (MFI-20) scale at hospital stay, in 1, 3 and 6 months after stroke occurrence. Brain MRI studies included cerebral infarct localization, planimetric measurements of infarct volumes, measurement of brain atrophy indexes (bifrontal, bicaudate, cortical atrophy indexes, width of third ventricle) and evaluation of leukoaraiosis severity, according to Fazekas scale...

Homocysteine is independent risk factors for the development of cardiovascular diseases, such as atherosclerosis and hypertension. Therefore, the aim of our study was to establish the relationship between the concentration of lead in the blood of patients who were in contact with this heavy metal at work and clinical manifestations. The subjects of the study were 203 men 38 to 47 years old. The main group consisted of 146 people who were in direct contact with lead at work (cable network repair), the control group was 57 people (engineers and technicians)...

Acute coronary syndrome remains a significant problem for cardiologists. Despite improved therapy, mortality remains extremely high once CHF becomes symptomatic. Multimarker approach in cardiovascular risk prediction was proved as the most effective tool. One of the promising biomarkers is a stress-induced marker growth differentiation factor 15 (GDF-15). Purpose of the study was to improve stratification methods of CHF progression risk as a complication of ACS by studying levels of GDF-15. In our study we showed association between high level of GDF-15, determined at the first 24 hours after ACS, and CHF progression after 12 months...
