[Vitamin D receptor gene BsmI polymorphism in rheumatoid arthritis and associated osteoporosis]

PÁKOZDI Angéla és munkatársai

[Rheumatoid arthritis is frequently associated with secondary osteopenia or osteoporosis. Gene polymorphisms, such as the BsmI polymorphism of the vitamin D receptor gene are likely to be be involved in the pathogenesis of osteoporosis. However, very little information is available on the role of the BsmI polymorphism in rheumatoid arthritis or in arthritisassociated metabolic bone disorders. Here the authors review international data on vitamin D receptor gene polymorphisms and their... tovább »

RASS Péter, PÁKOZDI Angéla, LAKATOS Péter, SZABÓ Zoltán, VÉGVÁRI Anikó, SZÁNTÓ Sándor, SZEGEDI Gyula, BAKÓ Gyula, SZEKANECZ Zoltán

[AIM: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is commonly associated with secondary osteoporosis.The BsmI polymorphism of the vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene has been implicated in the pathogenesis of osteoporosis. However, little data is available on the relationship between rheumatoid arthritis and the BsmI polymorphism. In this study, Hungarian frequencies of BsmI polymorphism genotypes were compared with those found in other countries. METHODS: In this study, 64 RA patients and 40 healthy controls were... tovább »

[Evaluation of bone mineralization in cow’s milk sensitive children]

HIDVÉGI Edit, ARATÓ András, CSERHÁTI Endre, SZABÓ Antal, SZABÓ András, HORVÁTH CSABA

[BACKGROUND - Patients with cow's milk allergy (CMA) form a potential risk group for osteopenia, because their milk-free diet usually has a low calcium content.The study analyses various parameters of bone mineralization in CMA children. PATIENTS AND METHODS - Twenty-seven CMA patients (mean age: 4.3 years, range: 3-8 years) were enrolled in the study.Transient sensitivity to cow's milk was observed in 20 of 27 patients. During the milk-free diet period (mean duration 11.8 months) children were... tovább »

[Epidemiologic features of nephrolithiasis in Hungary, based on morbidity data on hospitalized patients]

SILLER György, PÁLDY Anna, NÁDOR Gizella, VINCZE István, ZSÁMBIKINÉ Bakacs Márta, PINTÉR Alán, HORVÁTH CSABA

[AIM - To examine geographic, gender and age differences in the morbidity of nephrolithiasis (NL) in Hungary based on data from hospitalised NL cases. PATIENTS AND METHODS:The descriptive epidemiologic study involved settlements with 2,000 or more inhabitants and applied a spatial accumulation analysis to reveal any significant differences from the national average. Standardized morbidity ratios (SMRs) were calculated by indirect standardization and differences were tested by the c2 test.... tovább »
