Sudden cardiac death in the young (SCDY) is always a devastating event. The death is sudden and unexpected and often in a person who was thought to be healthy. In recent years our understanding of these tragic events have drastically improved; 10-20years ago we did not know how often SCD occurred in the young, and we had sparse knowledge on the role of inheritance. We have found that SCD corresponds to 7% of all deaths with an overall (highest possible) incidence rate of 2.8 per 100,000 person-years (autopsy rate of sudden death cases of 75%)...

For the last five years, invasive cardiology in Poland has developed extensively. Currently, 98% of the 161 Polish cathlabs operate in 24/7 mode, 37 of them supported by cardiac surgery departments on-site. A certification curriculum for interventional cardiology operators is supported by dedicated workshops and scientific meetings during national conferences. The rise in the number of coronary angiographies and PCIs was paralleled by an increased use of drug-eluting stents, bioresorbable vascular scaffolds and physiologic assessment of coronary arteries...

HCV infection is significantly more prevalent in the population of psychiatric patients, drug addicts and people tending to undertake risky sexual behaviors than in the general population. This article presents a spectrum of psychopathological symptoms and psychological dysfunctions, an outline of current theories on the neuropathology and psychiatric aspects of HCV infection treatment. The unspecific character of the psychopathological symptoms in the HCV infection makes the process of thorough diagnostics and adequate treatment difficult, thus the specific and characteristic features have been emphasized...

INTRODUCTION: Although surgical endarterectomy remains the treatment of choice for carotid artery stenosis, stenting plays an important role as an alternative treatment modality, especially in high-risk patients. The actual safety profile associated with stenting procedures is probably better than that reported by randomized controlled trials. AIM: To assess the safety of stent implantations in extracranial arteries supplying the brain, and also to identify risk factors associated with this procedure...

The Achilles tendon (AT) consists of fibers originating from the soleus muscle (SOL), which lies deep, and the medial (GM) and lateral (GL) heads of the gastrocnemius muscle, which lie superficial. As the fibers descend toward the insertion of the AT, the individual subtendons twist around each other. The aim of this study was to investigate the twisted structure of the AT and its individual subtendons. Specimens of the AT, with preserved calcaneal bone and a fragment of the triceps surae muscle, were obtained from 53 fresh-frozen, male cadavers (n=106 lower limbs)...

BACKGROUND: One of the major challenges limiting the development of gene therapy is an absence of efficient and safe gene carriers. Among the nonviral gene delivery methods, lipofection is considered as one of the most promising. In the present study, a set of cationic polyprenyl derivatives [trimethylpolyprenylammonium iodides (PTAI)] with different lengths of polyprenyl chains (from 7, 8 and 11 to 15 isoprene units) was suggested as a component of efficient DNA vehicles. METHODS: Optimization studies were conducted for PTAI in combination with co-lipid dioleoylphosphatidylethanolamine on DU145 human prostate cancer cells using: size and zeta potential measurements, confocal microscopy, the fluorescein diacetate/ethidium bromide test, cell counting, time-lapse monitoring of cell movement, gap junctional intercellular coupling analysis, antimicrobial activity assay and a red blood cell hemolysis test...

Outcomes of the World Humanitarian Summit were mixed with some refreshing new directions being endorsed and a lack of systemic reform. The selective agenda and OCHAs lack of success in engaging pre-meeting political participation not only hampered the Summit's ability to deal with global issues and institutional reform, but also alienated it from leading aid agencies and governments. The UN's failure to commit to humanitarian principles and global disarray of the humanitarian system indicates the need for extensive reform or a new global humanitarian body...

BACKGROUND: Visceral leishmaniasis (VL), caused predominantly by Leishmania donovani and transmitted by both Phlebotomus orientalis and Phlebotomus martini, is highly endemic in East Africa where approximately 30 thousands VL cases are reported annually. The largest numbers of cases are found in Sudan - where Phlebotomus orientalis proliferate in Acacia forests especially on Sudan's eastern border with Ethiopia, followed by South Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia, Kenya and Uganda. Long-standing civil war and unrest is a dominant determinant of VL in East African countries...

In this report, the effects of two oligochitosans, i.e., oligochitosan A (OCHA) and oligochitosan B (OCHB), on control of dry rot of Zanthoxylum bungeanum (Z. bungeanum) caused by Fusarium sambucinum (F. sambucinum) were evaluated. First, both oligochitosans show desirable ability to decrease the infection of F. sambucinum. Second, the oligochitosans strongly inhibit the radial colony and submerged biomass growth of F. sambucinum. Lastly, these oligochitosans are capable of increasing the activities of phenylalanine ammonia lyase (PAL), polyphenoloxidase (PPO) and peroxidase (POD) significantly, as well as enhancing the content of total phenolics in Z...
