[Optimizing the efficacy of triple combination therapy of chronic hepatitis C]

TORNAI István

[The outcome of chronic hepatitis C (CHC) therapy has been improved significantly. If sustained virologic response (SVR) is achieved, then it may prevent the occurrence of liver failure and hepatocellular carcinoma. With the currently used double combination therapy (peginterferon and ribavirin) SVR can be achieved in 40-50% of patients with genotype 1. In treatment naive patients, triple combination with protease inhibitors can result in 70-75% SVR. In treatment experienced patients, however,... tovább »

[Opportunities in drug therapy of biliary tract cancer. Past - present- future]

RUBOVSZKY Gábor, HITRE Erika, LÁNG István

[Biliary tract cancer is relatively rare tumour, but the dismal prognosis renders it frightful. Biliary tract cancers which consist of gall bladder cancers and bile duct cancers can be cured only with surgery thus it is exceedingly important that the surgery should take place in dedicated centres. The multidisciplinary approach may involve drug therapy, too, as an adjunct to surgery or for palliation. This publication summarizes present data about systemic treatment with some chronological... tovább »

[Development of the diagnostic criteria of Alzheimer’s disease]

KOVÁCS Tibor

[Alzheimer’s disease is a new endemic of the 21st century, which is going to become the biggest health and social problem of the ageing societies in the next few decades. Significant discoveries have been made by structural and functional imaging and biochemical (especially CSF) and genetic tests regarding the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. The modern diagnostic results were recently incorporated into the diagnostic criteria. This review summarises these diagnostic results.]

[A simple method to demonstrate urate crystals in formalin fixed tissue]

BÉLY Miklós, KRUTSAY Miklós

[In our previous study we refuted the thesis that sodium urate crystals are not, or only rarely detectable in formalin-fixed histological samples because they dissolve in the aqueous formalin solution. Our observations indicate that dissolution of urate crystals is primarily caused by haematoxylineosin staining. Undeniably, however, urate crystals are partially dissolved in the aqueous solution of formaldehyde, and thus a small amount of urate deposits may totally dissolve from tissue samples.... tovább »
