[TREATMENT OF GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX DISEASE]

PAPP János

[In the acidic type of gastroesophageal reflux disease treatment is based on the use of proton pump inhibitors. Efficiency of the treatment is primarily assessed by the changes in symptoms. A long-term, continuous drug use is invariably necessary. In typical cases an increased dose or combination therapy is rarely required, however, in the presence of extraesophageal symptoms, the use of higher doses has been found to be beneficial. The minimum efficient drug amount is usually determined by... tovább »

[TREATMENT APPROACHES OF CHRONIC HEPATITIS B IN HUNGARY]

TORNAI István, NEMESÁNSZKY Elemér

[Today, there are less patients with active chronic hepatitis B requiring treatment than patients with chronic hepatitis C. However, the course and outcome of chronic hepatitis B is usually more severe, therefore, the disease has not lost importance. The most dangerous risks are the development of liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. The disease may present in various forms. Symptom-free carriers only need follow-up and hepatologic care. In the active stages with elevated liver enzymes... tovább »

[THE PATHOPHYSIOLOGICAL IMPORTANCE OF FAT TISSUE - INTRAABDOMINAL OBESITY]

PARAGH György, KÖBLING Tamás

[Obesity affects a significant proportion of the population in Western countries. Metabolic changes that are associated with obesity lead to metabolic syndrome, a significant risk factor of cardiovascular mortality. Body mass index, which is used to describe the extent of obesity, is not suitable on its own to predict cardiovascular risk or assess metabolic changes, because it doesn't provide information on the distribution of accumulated fat within the body. Several studies have shown that it... tovább »

[INSULIN ASPART IN THE CLINICAL PRACTICE]

JERMENDY György

[Insulin aspart (B28 Asp-insulin), which is produced by recombinant DNA technology, is a fast-acting insulin analogue. Due to the aspartate for proline substitution at position 28 of the Bchain, the insulin molecule's tendency for selfassociation is diminished, therefore, insulin aspart rapidly dissociates into dimeric and monomeric forms and absorbs quickly and easily after subcutaneous administration. Compared to human regular insulin, insulin aspart has a faster onset of activity, a higher... tovább »

[A NEW WAY TO TREAT ALLERGIC ASTHMA: ANTI-IGE THERAPY]

MAGYAR Pál

[Immunoglobulin E (IgE) plays a central role in the pathogenesis of the inflammation of the bronchial mucosa and airway hyperreactivity, which in turn produces the symptoms of allergic bronchial asthma. Omalizumab, the recently developed anti-IgE monoclonal antibody binds to the Cε3 region of the IgE molecule and thus prevents binding of the IgE to the surface of FCεRI receptor bearing cells (mast cells, basophils and antigen presenting dendritic cells). In the absence of cell-bound IgE, these... tovább »

[THE PHENOMENON OF BURNOUT IN VIEW OF THE HUNGARIAN AND INTERNATIONAL LITERATURE]

KOVÁCS Mariann

[There is plethora of international publications on the topic of burnout among health professionals. The most comprehensive study in Hungarian on this issue was written fifteen years ago by psychiatrist Sandor Fekete. In the past fifteen years there has been a growing interest among both the scientific community and the public in studies on health psychology, behavioural sciences, sociology of health and quality of life as well as in the harmful effects of work stress. The first part of the... tovább »
