In the adult female, acne is a chronic condition with a substantial negative psychological, social and emotional impact. Based on time of onset, two subtypes of adult female acne are recognized: 'persistent acne' is a continuation of the disease from adolescence, while 'late-onset acne' first presents in adulthood. The morphological characteristics of adult female acne are often distinct from adolescent acne. In adults, inflammatory lesions (particularly papules, pustules and nodules) are generally more prominent on the lower chin, jawline and neck, and comedones are more often closed comedones (micro cysts). Adult acne is mainly mild-to-moderate in severity and may be refractory to treatment. A holistic approach to acne therapy should be taken in adult females, which combines standard treatments with adjunctive therapy and cosmetic use. A number of factors specific to the adult female influence choice of treatment, including the predisposition of older skin to irritation, a possible slow response to treatment, a high likelihood of good adherence, whether of child-bearing age, and the psychosocial impact of the disease. Adherence to therapy should be encouraged through further patient education and a simplified regimen that is tailored to suit the individual patient's needs and lifestyle. This article reviews the specific characteristics of adult female acne, and provides recommendations for acne therapy in this patient group. © 2013 European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology.

A prospective study was conducted during an 8-month period, from August 2006 to April 2007, to describe the epidemiology of Staphylococcus aureus-associated infections. In addition, the molecular characteristics, antimicrobial susceptibilities and antibiotic resistance determinants were identified in S. aureus isolates from hospitals and the community in Vladivostok, Russia. Among the 63 S. aureus isolates eligible for this study, methicillin resistance was observed in 48% (n = 30). Hospital-acquired strains accounted for 93% (28/30) of all methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) isolates. The major MRSA clone (sequence type (ST) 239, staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec (SCC. mec) type III, Panton-Valentine leukocidin (PVL)-negative, with two related staphylococcal protein A gene (spa) types (types 3 and 351)) represented 90% of all of the MRSA isolates. This clone was multidrug-resistant, and 41% of isolates showed resistance to rifampicin. Community-acquired MRSA isolates (n = 2) were categorized as ST30, SCC. mecIV, spa type 19, and PVL-positive, and as ST8, SCC. mecIV, of a novel spa type 826, and PVL-negative. Eight different STs were detected among methicillin-susceptible S. aureus (MSSA) isolates, of which 55% were PVL-positive. One MSSA clone, which was categorized as ST121, spa type 273, and PVL-positive, caused fatal community-acquired pneumonia infections. The strains predominantly isolated in hospitals in Russia belonged to the multidrug-resistant Brazilian/Hungarian ST239 MRSA clone; however, this clone has new antibiotic susceptibilities. Additionally, the emergence of PVL-positive MSSA strains with enhanced virulence was observed, warranting continued surveillance. © 2009 The Authors.

OXYS rats represent a selection strain of laboratory animals, which are characterized by the accelerated senescence. Substantial morphologic changes of cerebral vessels were revealed in the senescence-accelerated OXYS rats by the noninvasive MRI diagnostics using the induced arterial hypertension and the author's original methods. These changes appeared as vascular lesions with a thickening of the intimae and the increasing of the signal intensity from blood in cerebral vessels. Cerebral arterial hypertension in normotensive Wistar rats developed as result of intraperitoneal injections of hydrocortisone acetate and diet enriched by sodium ions. The pathology of cerebral vessels in OXYS rats began its development much earlier and was based on spontaneous hypertension in connection with initially elevated blood pressure as well as the genotype of the animals. Four different inductors (two vasodilators and two vasoconstrictors) were used in the study of the endothelium-independent and endothelium-dependent vasodilatation and vasoconstrictions. We have compared previously unknown effects of these inductors on cerebral vessels in senescence-accelerated OXYS rats and those in normal Wistar rats. The response of the arteries to the action of inductors showed changes in the status of anterior, middle, and posterior cerebral arteries of circle Willis. Thus, we have indicated the changes in compensatory and adaptive characters of arteries in hypertensive OXYS rats in comparison with hypertensive Wistar rats. Reduced vasodilator response in the middle cerebral arteries suggests an elevated risk for development of arterial hypertension in these rats. © 2014 Springer-Verlag Wien.

Objectives: To study the rate of apoptosis and expression of pro-and anti-apoptotic molecules in the synovial membrane in early and late rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Methods: Samples of the synovium, cartilage, synovial fluid, and blood serum were obtained from patients with seropositive RA. The localization of Bcl-2-, p53-and TUNEL-immunoreactive cells in the synovial membrane was studied. The level of the soluble Fas (sFas) receptor was determined in the blood serum and synovial fluid using an immunoassay. Results: In early RA, p53-immunoreactive synovial cells of type A were found to form rare aggregates in the intima. In late RA, on the contrary, these cells increased in number and occurred predominantly in the synovial stroma. Bcl-2-immunoreactive synovial cells were observed in lymphocytic infiltrates in the intima. They were found mainly in early RA. In late RA, their number decreased. The apoptotic index determined from the proportion of TUNEL-reactive synovial cell nuclei reached a maximum in late RA. The temporal differences in the rate of apoptosis were correlated with the humoral level of sFas, which increased significantly in late RA. On the contrary, in the synovial fluid, the sFas level decreased monotonically from early to late RA. Conclusion: In early RA, in the synovial membrane, the rate of apoptosis and p-53-immunostaining intensity were low, and Bcl-2-immunostaining intensity was high. The sFas level in synovial fluid was high. In late RA, the rate of apoptosis and p-53-immunostaining intensity increased, Bcl-2-immunostaining intensity decreased, as did the sFas level. © 2010 Taylor & Francis on license from Scandinavian Rheumatology Research Foundation.

The distribution of two enzymes involved in H2S synthesis, cystationine β-synthase (CBS) and cystationine γ-liase (CSE), was studied in the walls of the internal carotid artery, order I-V branches of the middle cerebral artery basin, and intracerebral vessels of adult Wistar rats. Immunohistochemical staining showed the presence of CBS in the endothelium of small pial arteries (order IV-V branches) and intracerebral arterioles and in the capillary walls, neurons, and vascular nerves. As for CSE, in the internal carotid artery and large (order I-II) pial branches it was found mainly in the tunica media myocytes, in order III-IV vessels in myocytes and endothelium, and in smaller pial and intracerebral vessels in the endothelium. Along with enzyme-positive vessels, many pial and intracerebral arteries contained no these enzymes in the walls. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media New York.

We studied the effects of Esphyl polypropylene mesh and Ecoflon polytetrafluoroethylene endoprostheses on local and systemic production of cytokines. Polytetrafluoroethylene is a more reactogenic material than polypropylene; it stimulates mainly the local production of pro-inflammatory cytokines. The local anti-inflammatory effect of polypropylene was less pronounced, but persisted for longer time. © 2014 Springer Science+Business Media New York.

A hygienic estimation of the actual average daily dose (AADD) of iron, consumed by the adolescent population with the sources of its per oral administration in human bodies in the conditions of iron excess (0.8 mg/l) in tap water has been performed. An object of the study was a random sample of 156 schoolchildren aged 14-17 years from Vladivostok. Methods: All adolescents were interviewed with use of a questionnaire that included questions about daily consumption of tap water, bottled water, 21 food products and dishes. Iron concentration in food and drinking water was determined according to the reference tables and laboratory findings. Results: The harmless levels of AADD of iron for adolescent health (about 17 mg/day) were stated. An occurrence frequency of iron consumption deficiency was equal to 28.08 (boys) and 58,54 (girls) cases per 100 adolescents. Conclusions: Against iron excess in tap water according to the organoleptic limiting sign of iron content harmfulness (up to 2.7 MPC), iron consumption deficiency is formed by lower intake of high bioavailable iron sources: eggs, fishes (girls), eggs, sausage products and animal meat (boys). © Northern State Medical University, Arkhangelsk.

Immunocytochemical method was used to determine the distribution of neurons expressing heme oxygenase-2 (HO-2-positive neurons) in the nuclei of various parts of the brainstem of 16 male Wistar rats. The sizes of neurons and the optical density of the product of histochemical reaction in their cytoplasm were determined in the nuclei studied. HO-2-positive neurons, differing in shape, size and numbers, were identified in the nuclei of the medulla oblongata, pons and midbrain. HO-2-positive cells were found 3-5 times more frequently in the sensory nuclei as compared to the motor ones. At the same time, relatively large number of nuclei was detected, which contained either no or a few HO-2-positive neurons.

ChAT-positive neurons in the nuclei of the medulla oblongata of Wistar rats have been studied with the use of histochemical and immunohistochemical methods. We have found that the topography and the number of cholinergic neurons at the projection nuclei studied largely depend on the method of detection of these neurons. Histochemical method always revealed more neurons than immunohistochemistry. Such a feature of ChAT-positive neurons detection was clearly seen among the majority of nuclei in the medial region and in some of the nuclei in the lateral region of the medulla oblongata. The number of immunoreactive cells in the nuclei varied from 17 to 26 %, whereas the histochemical reaction determined 1.5 - 3 times more neurons in the same nuclei. ChAT-positive cells in the nuclei of the back seam were detected mainly by a histochemical method.
