[Liver diseases and diabetes mellitus]

WINKLER Gábor

[The liver plays a pivotal role in metabolism. Thus, it is hardly surprising that its acute and chronic diseases may be accompanied by multiple disturbances of the carbohydrate metabolism, and the development of diabetes mellitus - primarily of type 2 diabetes mellitus - may result in structural changes in the liver. This article overviews the main pathogenetic mechanisms of this bidirectional relationship, discusses special considerations of choosing the therapy and highlights special difficulties of the assessment of a diabetic metabolism.]

[The role of vitamin D in gastrointestinal diseases]

ZÖLD Éva, BODOLAY Edit, ZEHER Zargit, BARTA Zsolt

[The amount of the fat-soluble vitamin D can be reduced by a number of chronic diseases or even obesity. On the other hand, vitamin D itself can also influence the development or course of these disorders. Some gastrointestinal diseases are known to cause vitamin D deficiency, but some observations and studies have also proved that certain gastrointestinal diseases occur more frequently in case of vitamin D deficiency. Moreover, in case of some intestinal tumours even “vitamin D sensitivity” can occur. Our aim is to introduce the relationship between vitamin D and gastrointestinal diseases, and to highlight the importance of vitamin D replacement in gastrointestinal diseases accompanied by vitamin D deficiency or vitamin D sensitivity.]

[Association between cyclothymic affective temperament and hypertension]

NEMCSIK János, BATTA Dóra, KŐRÖSI Beáta, RIHMER Zoltán

[Affective temperaments (cyclothymic, hypertymic, depressive, anxious, irritable) are stable parts of personality and after adolescent only their minor changes are detectable. Their connections with psychopathology is well-described; depressive temperament plays role in major depression, cyclothymic temperament in bipolar II disorder, while hyperthymic temperament in bipolar I disorder. Moreover, scientific data of the last decade suggest, that affective temperaments are also associated with somatic diseases. Cyclothymic temperament is supposed to have the closest connection with hypertension. The prevalence of hypertension is higher parallel with the presence of dominant cyclothymic affective temperament and in this condition the frequency of cardiovascular complications in hypertensive patients was also described to be higher. In chronic hypertensive patients cyclothymic temperament score is positively associated with systolic blood pressure and in women with the earlier development of hypertension. The background of these associations is probably based on the more prevalent presence of common risk factors (smoking, obesity, alcoholism) with more pronounced cyclothymic temperament. The scientific importance of the research of the associations of personality traits including affective temperaments with somatic disorders can help in the identification of higher risk patient subgroups.]

[Prominents in Hungarian nephrology Professor Gyula Petrányi (1912-2000). Part II]

SZALAY László

[A nation can only survive and keep its identity through its traditions. This is why the initiative to launch this series coming from professor János Radó is worthy of attention. Gyula Petrányi is an outstanding personality in 20th century internal medicine, to be more precise in nephrology and immunology, his activity being wide-ranging. The first part of the current summary of his work deals with a tribute to his personality, and his role in immunomodularity treatment in glomerulonephritis. The second part shall cover his role in spreading renal biopsy, screening and caring kidney patients, dialysis, in developing kidney patients’ care, furthermore in clinicopharmacology and renal transplantation.]

[ANIMAL MODELS OF HUNTINGTON’S DISEASE]

GÁRDIÁN Gabriella

[Huntington’s disease is an autosomal dominantly inherited progressive neurodegenerative disorder. The main symptoms are choreiform, involuntary movements, personality changes and dementia. Huntington’s disease is a member of a group of diseases caused by CAG repeat expansions. One research aim is to determine the earliest molecular changes associated with Huntington’s disease. There is no possibility for this in humans, but various early changes have been identified in an animal model of Huntington’s disease. They are constructed by excitotoxin causing striatal lesion, or mitochondrial toxins inducing energy impairment, or by generating transgenic mice.]
