[May patients with chronic kidney disease do sports?]

APOR Péter, RÁDI Attila, BABAI László

[Physical activity and sports in healthy people do not result in renal impairment. In end-stage renal disease - together with dialysis - moderate physical activity supports the maintenance of the controlled status. In chronic kidney disease moderate exercise improves filtration, the lipid profile, diminishes proteinuria and oxidative damage, maintains the muscular performance and metabolically active muscle mass. Metabolism of diabetics are significantly improved with exercise, it provides... tovább »

[Gender differencies in coronary reactivity in angiotensin II hypertension rat model]

MÁTRAI Máté, NÁDASY György L, HETHÉSSY Judit, SZEKERES Mária, MONOS Emil, SZÉKÁCS Béla, VÁRBÍRÓ Szabolcs

[It is known that hypertension shows several gender specific elements both in pathogenesis and in therapy. Understanding this phenomenon may bring us closer to individualized therapy. That was the reason why we examined process of hypertensive adaptation on the level of small intramural coronary arteries. 10-10 male and female Sprague-Dawley rats were used in this study. Animals received osmotic pumps in anaesthesia, which emitted 100 ng/bwkg/min angiotensin II acetate for four weeks. After... tovább »

[Sándor Gerő, the researcher clinician (1904-1992)]

GÁCS János

[Sándor Gerő presents two theories concerning the origin of atherosclerosis. The first one is called “primary lipid infiltration concept” which means the penetration of high concentration plasma lipids into the arterial wall without its damage. The other theory for the origin of atherosclerosis is primary damage of the vascular wall (namely of fibers, mucopolysaccharid etc.) which is followed by lipid infiltration. In the literature it is named “primary vascular concept” of atherosclerosis. The... tovább »

[Too early publication? (priority of the Hungarian authors was saved by a South- American radiologist)]

RADÓ János

[It is supposed that the invention of diuretic (furosemide) renography was a premature discovery. This is suggested by the fact that it was rediscovered by more than one people. Author supported this contention by a statistical analysis of „citation intervals” performed on the basis of Garfield’s suggestions. The length of the time from the description of the procedure to the appearance of citations („citation interval”) proved to be an average of 21.3±9.6 (SD) years, significantly longer than... tovább »
