The article presents the results of a study of the immune system of the patients with viral hepatitis B in combination with giardiasis. In accordance with the tasks to be solved, the patients were divided into groups: 1st group - 59 patients, with a developed long-term clinical form of giardiasis and the presence of chronic viral hepatitis B, group 2 - 48 patients without giardiasis and the presence of early, initial stages of HBV and a control group - 45 patients who do not have HBV and giardiasis. In 3,4±1,4% of the patients of the 1st group the index of the leukocyte shift was normal, while for a significant part of the patients in this group the index of the leukocyte shift was in the third degree - 59,3±6,3% (t = 6,43, p<0,001). Unfavorable gradation ratios of leuko-intestinal index (LII) are observed in the 1st group of patients. A good LII was observed in only 3,4±1,2% of cases, while in the remaining patients LII values were unsuccessful: unsatisfactory in 37,3±6,2% of cases (t = 4,08, p<0,001), poor - in 28,8±5,9% of cases (t = 3,19, p<0,02), very poor in 20,1±5,3% of cases (t = 0,42, p>0,05). Almost single situation with the state of the immune status shows on the reserve for increasing capacity as the efficacy of treatment among patients and their prevention through strict implementation of preventive measures.

The aim of the study was to examine the effectiveness of III generation β-blocker carvedilol in patients with chronic pulmonary tuberculosis and diabetes. For study of the antiarrhythmic efficiency of carvedilol was assigned this to 70 patients (40 men, 30 women) at a dose of 12,5-25 mg. In 12 (17,1±4,5) patients with combined pathology was detected hypertension on the basis of this, they took IPAF. It was discovered in 9 (12,9±4,0) patients with coronary artery disease, they were taking nitrates and dihydropyridine antagonists series. Thus, our studies have shown that not all patients with antiarrhythmic drug effect was observed on the first day, but he grew during the course of carvedilol therapy. In addition, we concluded high efficacy against both supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias. Long-term use of the drug is more effective in comparison with a single. Carvedilol, inhibiting lipid peroxidation, causes the neutralization of superoxide anion, inactivating nitric oxide, which is known to cause, along with vasodilating action bronchodilator effect.

The aim of this study was to study subjective symptoms and laboratory parameters of patients with MS in different age groups. A prospective study of 364 patients with newly diagnosed MS at the age of 20 to 80 years, (200 men and 164 women). In order to study the features of MS in patients of different ages, initially all subjects were divided into three groups: the first group included patients with MS aged from 20 to 40 years, the second group comprised persons with MS aged from 41 to 60 years and the third group were patients with MS in the age range from 61 to 80 years. The frequency of complaints is significantly increased towards the older age groups. Thus, in the third group, the relative frequency of persons with dyspnea, respectively, compared with patients in the 20-40 age group in which the frequency of these complaints. Complaints of weakness and arrhythmia were third group, which is significantly higher than the corresponding indices in the20-40 age group. In patients of the second group, the relative frequency of complaints was higher relative to the group of patients 20-40 years. In patients of the second group, dyspnea with exercise, dizziness and weakness of patients, respectively, which is significantly higher than the similar complaints for the first group of patients that occurred respectively of individuals. Arrhythmia and pain in the heart are observed of the second group, which is higher than in the first group. In patients of the third group, an increase in hematocrit was observed in comparison with the first group of individuals, and platelets decrease in the concentration of erythrocytes and leukocytes.

The comparative characteristic of the born after 22 completed weeks of gestation in the regional prenatal centers and detection of its regional features. In research are used the materials of three regional prenatal centers (Lenkoran, Guba and Sheki) deployed in areas with different medico-geographical and medico-demographic conditions. The stillbirth after 22 completed weeks of gestation (by definition of WHO) was the largest in Lenkoran(5,4%), average in Sheki (3,2%) and the smallest in Guba (2,5%) the prenatal centers (p<0,05). The middle gestational age of the born made 38,2 weeks in Guba, 38,7 weeks in Lenkoran and 38,8 in Sheki prenatal centers (p<0,05). Distinction between the prenatal centers was deeper on prematurity frequency (the birth till 37 completed weeks) which made 9,4% in Guba, 6,1% in Sheki and 6,0% in Lenkoran prenatal centers. There was an inequality in terms of stillbirth level in regions of Azerbaijan with different socio-economic conditions in the prenatal centers, on shares and the born with small body weight. In the regional prenatal centers the born with a body weight of 500-999 grams in more than 90,95±2,03%, 1000-1499 grams from 11,76±5,52 to 39,02±0,82%, 1500-1999 grams from 3,77±0,82 to 7,79±2,16% cases are born dead that is the certificate of low level and quality of antenatal medical care.

This article studies the relationship between genes, which are associated with diabetes and complications of diabetes mellitus in the population of Azerbaijan. We examined 160 children with diabetes and 271 healthy people without diabetes and other autoimmune diseases. In both groups were surveyed class II genes of the Human Leukocyte Antigens (HLA), CTLA4 and gen of insulin. In children with diabetes studied the relationship between retinopathy, nephropathy and neuropathy with these genes. The study revealed that there is no correlation relationship between the studied parameters. Only positive trend was detected between nephropathy and gene HLA-DQB1 al1.

BACKGROUND:: According to the current literature, the recommended surgical treatment is circumferential spinal fusion, including both anterior and posterior procedures, for progressive thoracolumbar kyphosis in mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS). The purpose of this study was to report our experience with the posterior-only approach and instrumented fusion for MPS kyphosis. METHODS:: Six consecutive patients with MPS and thoracolumbar junctional kyphosis managed with the posterior-only approach were included. Demographic data, the type of MPS, medical comorbidities, and accompanying clinical manifestations were recorded. Measurements recorded on radiographs for the study included the presence of any coronal-plane deformity, fusion levels, changes in the local kyphosis angle (LKA), proximal and distal junctional kyphosis angles, and the apical vertebral wedge angle. RESULTS:: The average age at the time of surgery was 6.6 (range, 4 to 12) years. The average follow-up duration was 52.6 (range, 44 to 64) months. The mean preoperative LKA of 63.1±15.8 (range, 48 to 92) degrees decreased to a mean of 16.6±8.4 (range, 5 to 30) degrees immediately after surgery. At the latest follow-up, the mean LKA was 19.6±8.8 (range, 8 to 34) degrees. Apical vertebral listhesis was reduced in all patients with surgical correction. The average apical vertebral wedge angle of 15 (range, 11 to 19) degrees at the early postoperative period decreased to 4.6 (range, 2 to 7) degrees at the latest follow-up. Adjacent-segment problems occurred in 2 patients. There were no neurological complications or implant failures in any of the patients. CONCLUSIONS:: Posterior-only corrective techniques and instrumented fusion with pedicle screws for progressive thoracolumbar junctional kyphosis in MPS patients are safe and effective methods. Its results are comparable to those achieved with conventional circumferential fusion. However, patients should be monitored closely for adjacent-segment problems. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE:: Level IV—retrospective case series. Copyright © 2016 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
