ROSTA András, MOLNÁR Zsuzsanna, SCHNEIDER Tamás, VÁRADY Erika, DEÁK Beáta, ÉSIK Olga

[Hodgkin’s disease is a clonal B-cell disease. The exact etiology of the disease has not yet been identified, research data showing the crucial role of the Epstein-Barr virus. The Hodgkin’s disease is curable in 70-80 % of the cases. In the early stage of the disease, the treatment of choice should be the combined modality therapy. The required number of cycles of combined chemotherapy, the dose and the field extension of radiotherapy are all subjects of recent clinical trials. In the advanced... tovább »

[Current diagnostics and treatment of adolescent hypertension]

PÁLL Dénes, KATONA Éva, FÜLESDI Béla, JENEI Zoltán, POLGÁR Péter, PARAGH György, KAKUK György

[As the prevalence of hypertension in young people aged 14-18 is reported to be 1-1.5%, regular blood pressure measurement is proposed by the international committees in the adolescence, at least once a year. To establish the diagnosis of hypertension, repeated blood pressure measurements and sex-, age-, heightand weigt-based nomograms are needed. If casual blood pressures are consequently elevated, an ABPM measurement may provide additional informations, e.g. about white coat hypertension,... tovább »

[Platelet aggregation inhibitors in the prevention of coronary coronary artery disease. „Handle with care!"]

NAGY Viktor

[Platelets play pivotal role in the pathophysiology of unstable angina, acute myocardial infarction and in complications following percutaneous coronary intervention. Three classes of platelet-inhibiting drugs, aspirin, thienopyridines and platelet glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors are now commonly used for the prevention and treatment of the disorders of coronary artery thrombosis. For the last several decades, aspirin has been the sole option for antiplatelet therapy in the treatment and... tovább »

[Primary haemostasis in atherothrombotic processes]

UDVARDY Miklós

[It is now generally accepted, that the majority (>90%) of acute coronary and carotid syndromes are caused by thrombosis secondary to atheromatous plaque disruption, and approximately 75% of stroke cases are also of thrombotic origin. The prothrombotic changes in blood coagulation and in the primary haemostatic system may contribute substantially to the risk of occlusive arterial thrombotic events. The imbalance in the endothelium-platelet interaction seems to play crucial role in vessel wall... tovább »
