[Hypertensive urgencies and emergencies]

FARSANG Csaba

[Prompt recognition and evaluation of hypertensive urgencies and emergencies can substantially decrease definitive target organ damage and mortality. Most frequent cause of sudden increase in blood pressure is stopping antihypertensive treatment. In hypertensive crises quickly acting parenteral drugs are of choice, while in urgencies orally administered ones might be sufficient. Cerebral and coronary hypoperfusion should be avoided therefore blood pressure must be decreased gradually.]

[Incorporation of ortho- and meta-tyrosine into cellular proteins leads to erythropoietin-resistance]

MIKOLÁS Esztella Zsóka, KUN Szilárd, LACZY Boglárka, MOLNÁR Gergő Attila, SÉLLEY Eszter, KŐSZEGI Tamás, WITTMANN István

[Introduction: Erythropoietin (EPO) is a glycoprotein hormone, which is responsible for the proliferation and differentiation of erythroid cell lines. Since it is widely used as the treatment of renal anaemia, EPO-resistance is a common concern. Aims: We aimed to perform in vitro experiments to investigate a possible mechanism of EPO-hyporesponsiveness. Methods: We used a factor dependent erythroblast cell line (TF-1). Two independent observers calculated cell counts simultaneously on day 1; 2... tovább »

[Prevalence and care of prediabetic patients in the Hungarian hypertensive population]

KÉKES Ede, KISS István

[Authors studies the incidence of hypertensive patients with prediabetes - according to the IFG criteria - based on the 2005 Hungarian Hypertension registry (38849 subject) and on the „Live under 140/90” sub-program („Prevent it”) (23670 subject) database. The presences of diabetes patients were excluded. IFG incidence (from 5,6 to 7,1 mmol/l) was found between 13-18% of the adult population over 40 years. In men, the incidence was significantly higher. In individuals with IFG the BMI, waist... tovább »
