[A short chronicle of three decades ]

KAPRONCZAY Katalin

[Hungarian professional periodicals started quite late in European context. Their publish­ing, editing and editorial philosophy were equally influenced by specific historical and political situations. Certain breaking points of history resulted in termina­tion of professional journals (War of In­de­pendence 1848-1849, First and Se­cond World Wars), however there were pe­riods, which instigated the progress of sciences and founding of new scientific journals. Both trends were apparent in years... tovább »

FALUS András

[Immunology is a complex science studying healthy and abnormal immune responses. This discipline of physiology and pathophysiology primarily understands the individual mechanisms through a cellular and molecular biological, genetic, epigenetic and (neuro) endocrinological approach, as well as by exploring the details of pathological processes.

[Lung cancer – a review of thirty years. Thoughts about the past struggles, the present results and promises of the future]

OSTOROS Gyula

[In the past thirty years there was a huge development in the complex treatment of lung cancer. This development is due mostly to the last decade.

WINKLER Gábor

[According to current guidelines of type 2 diabetes, treatment, glucagon-like pep­tide (GLP) -1 receptor agonists (RAs) are primary suggested drugs of the early antidiabetic medication, just after the first an­ti­­diabetic metformin. However, more and more arguments support their optional application in old age diabetes.

Besides the psychological traps of traditionally intuitive and heuristic medical decision making, lack of information, scarce resources and characteristics of doctor-patient relationship contribute equally to this uncertainty. Formal, mathematical model based analysis of decisions used widely in developing clinical guidelines and in health... tovább »

[Economic features of rewarding physicians – changing for fair incomes in Hungary ]

BALÁZS Péter

[Since ages, rewarding physicians was a crucial problem. Among true professionals (priests, legal experts, physicians and teachers) only medical doctors are necessarily working in physical terms, which generates permanent uncertainty about their remuneration. Old Age manual services (surgery, obstetrics) were paid by artisans’ standards while patients of faith-healing (by priest-doctors) presented religious offers according to their capacities. Hippocrates’ business ethics transformed this... tovább »

[Focus on Lege Artis Medicinae (LAM)]

VASAS Lívia, GEGES József

[Three decades ago, LAM was launched with the goal of providing scientific information about medicine and its frontiers. From the very beginning, LAM has also concerned a special subject area while connecting medicine with the world of art. In the palette of medical articles, it remained a special feature to this day. The analysis of the history of LAM to date was performed using internationally accepted publication guidelines and scientific databases as a pledge of objectivity. We examined... tovább »
