MITOTIC CATASTROPHE AS A VARIANT OF APOPTOSIS
This review article us a summary of various variants of programmed cellular death and the role of pathological cell division in the development of one of the apoptotic forms – the mitotic catastrophe. The article also outlines possible consequences of the mitotic catastrophe itself and the impairment of its realization program.
THE ROLE OF VITAMINS IN THE TREATMENT OF CANCER AND ANTI-AGING PROGRAMMS
Depending on the dose, the vitamins are classified either as the drug products or the nutritional additives. They are used extensively in therapeutic doses as part of numerous rejuvenescence methods. At the same time, the published evidential data concerning safety of vitamins for antioxidant protection of the body and the prolongation of life are rather conflicting. The article reviews the studies investigating the relationship between cancer as part of the aging processes the effect and vitamins.
The effect of decreasing body mass after adjustable gastric bandage application on the cardiovascular раthology risk-factors
Ye. Stolina et al.
It has been determined that during the follow-up period the patients achieved clinically relevant (>5% compared to baseline) decrease of the body mass, as well as the doses of medications taken, and developed an improvement in values characterizing carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. The results suggest that the surgical management of obesity can be viewed as a way to decrease the body mass and an opportunity to normalize the metabolic parameters in patients with morbid obesity.
Diagnosis and treatment of the lower limbs teleangiectasis in dermatological practice (part II. Complications)
T. Korolkova and M. Ignatyuk
The article analyses the pathological changes occurring in and around vessels of the lower limbs after experimental sclerotherapy, as well as the water content and oxygen saturation of skin in the area around the sclerotic vessel after various types of sclerotherapy in order to investigate the conditions facilitating complications extensively discussed in literature (such as hyperpigmentation, capillary matting, superficial thrombophlebitis, skin necrosis, etc.).
Correction of cicatrical changes of skin using early repeated laser dermabrasion
A. Mikhailov et al.
The authors introduce the method of early repeated dermabrasion using Er-YAG-laser to treat cicatrical changes of skin. The absence of thermal injury together with high degree of ablation and short-term reepithelization within the treated area allow for early onset of repeated laser dermabrasion, thus decreasing the treatment duration by 1,5-2,0 months (contra 1-2 years). This method is most effective for the treatment of normo- and hypertrophic scars, less effective for the correction of hypo- or atrophic scars and has poor effect on burn scars.
Non-suture hair transplantation in the surgical management of hair loss
D. Papaskiri et al
The article introduces a method of non-suture hair transplantation used to treat cicatrical and androgen alopecia. This method implies the removal of follicles from the donor area without skin incision thus preventing the formation of scar, which is common for flap transplantation. The graft quality obtained with «Acrotorque-II» unit («Robbins Instruments Inc», USA) corresponds to that of the mono- and micrografts acquired using thorough manual preparation of the donor material in case of conventional micrografting. The efficacy of hair transplantation using the non-suture method achieves 90%.
