Assessment of HMGB-1 concentration in tick-borne encephalitis and neuroborreliosis

A constant increase in the incidence of tick-borne diseases has been observed in Europe since the last decade of the twentieth century. In Poland, the most common zoonoses transmitted by Ixodes ricinus ticks are tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) and Lyme disease. These diseases have become a serious clinical problem, especially in Podlaskie Region, which is considered an endemic area for these diseases (Czupryna et al., 2011).

This study can’t contribute to the debate over whether liberals or conservatives are more likely to commit such errors, the researchers write, because the stimuli weren’t constructed to be equally polarising to the two “sides” (though some prior research suggest both tribes are equally vulnerable). It also doesn’t tell us what can be done about this sort of ill-formed reasoning. Though on that front, at least, Gampa, Wojcik, and their colleagues do have some ideas: “A takeaway from this research… may be that reasoners should strive to be epistemologically humble. If logical reason...

Authors: Kowal J, Markiewicz A, Dębicka-Kumela M, Bogdali A, Romanowska-Dixon BE Abstract Purpose: The aim of the study was an evaluation of I-125 brachytherapy patients with uveal melanoma with special consideration for the relationship of the treatment results and the irradiation dose applied to the tumor apex. Material and methods: Medical records of 344 adults with uveal melanoma treated with I-125 brachytherapy in the Department of Ophthalmology and Ocular Oncology of the Jagiellonian University, Medical College in Cracow, Poland were retrospectively analyzed. The study was conducted between 2003 and 2012...

In this study, we have screened the in vitro inhibitory efficacy of four different drug molecules (o-choline, DABCO®, lumefantrine and eugenol) against T. equi and B. caballi, targeting different parasite metabolism pathways. Imidocarb dipropionate and diminazene aceturate were used as reference control drugs. The 50 % in vitro growth inhibitory concentration (IC50) of lumefantrine, o-choline, DABCO® and eugenol for T. equi were: 30.90 μM; 84.38 μM; 443 μM; 120 μM and for B. caballi growth inhibition were: 5.58 μM; 135.29 μM; 150 μM; 197.05&thins...

Authors: Chaiphongpachara T, Yusuk P, Laojun S, Kunphichayadecha C Abstract Malaria is transmitted by female mosquitoes in the genus Anopheles and is a major public health issue. Different species of Anopheles mosquitoes have different epidemiological characteristics, behaviors, and ecological requirements, and so an understanding of their biology and ecology in a particular area is critical for successful disease control. The aim of this study was to determine which environmental factors are associated with Anopheles larvae in a malaria-endemic area in Ratchaburi Province, Thailand, which shares a border with Myan...

Background: Recent studies have reported that brain abnormalities in patients with myalgic encephalitits (ME), including the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) in the prefrontal cortex, correlate with fatigue symptom. Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) was recently introduced as a safe non-invasive therapeutic modality for some neurological disorders, acting through modulation of cortical neural activity. However, there are no studies that have examined the effects of rTMS in ME patients.
