[Diabetes mellitus and the liver]

BECHER Péter, PATAI Árpád, MÁJER Katalin

[In the past years, the prevention of micro- and macrovascular complications has been the main target of diabetes treatment. Its unfavourable effects on the liver have been forgotten: the accelerated progression of the liver diseaeses and the increased risk of hepatocellular carcinoma. The multimetabolic syndrome leads to non-alcoholic fatty liver diseases (steatosis, steatohepatitis, cirrhosis). On he other hand some types of liver cirrhosis (for example the common alcoholic form) are worsening the insulin resistance, so they may due to a hepatogenous diabetes mellitus, that’s treatment is different and needs more regard, than type 2 diabetes.]

[The role of Hungarian-rooted scholars in the development of Otoneurology ]

TAMÁS T. László, GARAI Tibor, TOMPOS Tamás, MAIHOUB Stefani, SZIRMAI Ágnes

[Despite of the symptoms of vertigo have been known since thousands of years, it was evident by the research of the pioneer scientists of the 19th century (Flourens, Ménière, Breuer and others) that dizziness can also be attributed to inner ear disfunctions. The discovery of the vestibulo-ocular reflex was an important milestone (Endre Hőgyes, 1884). The vestibulo-ocular reflex stabilizes images on the retina by rotating the eyes at the same speed but in the opposite direction of head motion. The milestone discovery of Hőgyes by stimulating individual labyrinth receptors and recording the activity of eye muscles were verified by János Szentágothai in 1950. Low-frequency lesions of the angular vestibulo-ocular reflex can be investigated by caloric test (Robert Bárány,1906), high-frequency lesions by head impulse test (Gabor Michael Halmagyi and Ian Stewart Curthoys, 1988).]

[We spend four fifths of our sleep time in nonREM (NREM) sleep. The rather strange designation of this sleep state was a consequence of the fascination by rapid-eye-movement sleep (REM sleep) after its discovery in the middle of the last century.]

[Classical neurology: Adieu! Or: what is the future of hungarian neurology, fruitful transformation or preprogrammed death?]

HALÁSZ Péter, RAJNA Péter

[According to our oppinion several ideas, trends and aims of the traditional neurology became outworn. (So together with all the romantic beauty and hierarchic relations: Adieu!). The specialisation within the main body of the profession is unavoidable. A new, high quality, cost-benefit sensitive, institutional system should be built up, non essentially on inpatient, but on outpatient basis, supported by a personal and partnership oriented patient/doctor relationship, with multidiszciplinatory co-operations and team-work. Education should be also rebuilt accordingly. This analysis of the present situation and recommendations for the future plans was given - since our ages - without any personal interest or attraction. We tried to keep before us only the future of our beloved profession, the preservation of worths, and the exploration of the withdrawing dogmatic views. We invite everybody who is interested in the current questions of our profession to share their oppinion with the whole neurological society and take part in open discussion of these important questions.]

[Gratitude money in Hungarian healthcare; Attitudes and opinions]

NAGY András László

[With less and less satisfactory funding for health care, the government is striking growing interest in gratitude money. Almost at the same time, the Minister of Health set up the so-called Thanksgiving Committee and began research - commissioned and supported by the Central European University and the State Treasury - by Tárki. Studies summarizing the results of the two programs also became known at about the same time. In our series, we browse in parallel the Commission report, which focuses on theoretical approaches, and the study, which is based on sociological facts (opinions). In addition to the similarity in content, the parallelism is justified by the fact that the researchers of Tárki (Géza Bognár and Róbert Iván Gál, supervisor János Kornai) thank Péter Balázs, the head of the working committee invited by the Minister, for his “valuable comments”. It can therefore be assumed that the two research groups knew and used each other’s results.]
