UNLABELLED: It is believed that important pathogenic mechanism in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is hyperinsulinemia. Insulin synthesis is linked to C-peptide release, but the role of C-peptide in PCOS is not well described. THE AIM OF THE STUDY was to evaluate C-peptide serum levels in overweight or obese women with PCOS and assessment of correlation between serum concentrations of C-peptide and androgens and metabolic disturbances in PCOS. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 65 women diagnosed with PCOS were included to the study...

AIM: To evaluate clinical implications of pCD40L as a marker of atherosclerotic vascular affection in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). MATERIAL AND METHODS: The examination of 132 females (mean age 35 years, SLE duration 96 months) assessed classic factors of atherosclerosis risk (AR), total coronary risk (TCR), detected subclinical atherosclerosis with ultrasonic scanning of the carotid arteries. Serum level of pCD40L was measured with enzyme immunoassay (EL4)...

The term "chronic kidney disease" (CKD) was introduced recently to nephrological literature. CKD is a growing epidemic problem, which affects 11% of adult US population. CKD, particularly with GFR below 60 ml/min/1, 73 m2 is associated with increased risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. It is a result of coexistance of "traditional" cardiovascular risk factors cumulation such as hypertension, lipid and carbohydrate disorders but also "non-traditional" cardiovascular risk factors such as: anemia, calcium-phosphate metabolism disturbances, chronic inflammation and others...

A reduced HDL-Cholersterol and increased triglyzerides are an often seen laboratory abnormality. They are known risk factors for arteriosclerosis. However the small influence of a pharamcologic treatment on the two reduced the interest in them. We therefore want to show the relation of the triglyzerides with the HDL-Cholesterol and the nonpharmacologic treatment of these two factors. Some clinical examples are illustrating the topic.

BACKGROUND: A variety of benign tumors present in the nasal and paranasal sinuses. METHODS: We review our experience over the last 10 years with endoscopic management of these tumors and discuss (presentation, diagnostic considerations, and therapeutic options. RESULTS: Eighteen patients with benign sinonasal tumors were managed with endoscopic techniques. Representative cases are presented, including pleomorphic adenoma, ameloblastoma, meningioma, cholersterol granuloma, ossifying fibroma, fibrous dysplasia, and osteomas...

Serial measurement of serum proteins, albumin, and cholesterol levels was used in attempt to assess the course and prognosis in cancer patients. This assessment is based on the fact that their declines followed first order kinetics and that these patients usually died when their levels were lower than half the initial levels. Two categories of cancer patients were identified: those in whom the initial measurements of serum albumin or cholersterol, taken soon after diagnosis, were declining (Group I), and those who showed such a decline as they entered an advanced or terminal phase (Group II)...

Fasting levels of plasma cholersterol and triglyceride, lipoprotein patterns, and fasting and postintravenous glucose levels of blood glucose, serum insulin, serum growth hormone, and plasma free fatty acids in a genetic potential diabetic population were compared to those in a similar normal control population. THe potential diabetic population was further divided into groups of patients with a normal (prediabetic) or abnormal (chemical diabetic) glucose tolerance test. Although no clear-cut lipid differences were noted, certain trends appeared...
