We tested the hypotheses that PVT is the result of platelet hyperactivity or intestinal barrier disruption. Methods This study included 49 patients with cirrhosis (15 females) of mixed etiology. Based on spiral computed-tomography, the patients were divided into two groups: with PVT (n = 16) and without PVT (n = 33). Serum biomarkers of intestinal barrier integrity were endotoxins and z...

Introduction: F E NO measurement has a very good repeatability in clinical setting. Less is known about F E NO reproducibility in epidemiological studies. The aim of the study was to assess short-term repeatability of F E NO levels and its correlates in children aged 6-9, participants in respiratory epidemiology survey. Methods: F E NO was measured before spirometric test using portable device (NIOX MINO) on two sessions one week apart in 101 children, examined at local schools. Children9s respi...
