    Title The Advantages of the Application of Amnion Membrane in the Treatment of Burns.
    Date January 2010
    Journal Prilozi / Makedonska Akademija Na Naukite I Umetnostite, Oddelenie Za Biološki I Medicinski Nauki = Contributions / Macedonian Academy of Sciences and Arts, Section of Biological and Medical Sciences

    A crucial and important factor for successful treatment of burns is the early covering of the burned area with skin substitutes. The covering of the burn requires material that restores the epidermal function and integrates itself into the process of healing. Biological dressings are the golden standard for the temporary covering of burns. All biological skin substitutes are susceptible to early graft reaction and the only exception is the amnion membrane. The importance of the amnion membrane as a biological dressing for burns amounts to: a barrier to bacterial colonization, hastens the epithelisation, and control of water loss. Amnioplasty is a method of application of amnion membrane on the recipient site. In this comparative study, 60 patients with dermal and sub-dermal burns were included. Research was made on an examination group of 30 patients with burns where the method of amnioplasty was applied, and for this amnion membrane conserved in 76% alcohol was used. The control group was made up of 30 patients with burns treated conventionally, and standard methods for the local treatment of burns were applied: exposition, occlusive dressing and initial excision with skin grafting. Pathohistological and microbiological analyses of the bioptical material were made. The degree of the burns was determined through a pathohistological analysis of the bioptical material taken the third day, and in some of the subjects where re-epithelialization was determined on the seventh day, the further re-epithelialization was observed clinically. Pathohistological examination enabled discrimination between bacterial colonization and the invasive bacterial infection. Furthermore, the type of bacterial colonization and infection was determined, which was confirmed with microbiological analysis. The analysis of the results from the microbiological and pathohistological researches of the bioptical material according to the bacterial colonization and infection showed that, although between the examined and the control group there was no statistically important difference, the value of p = 0.067 is close to the statistically important value of p < 0.05. The results of the pathohistological examination of the bioptical material taken the seventh day and analysed according to the re-epithelialization showed that there was a significant difference between the two groups of p < 0.035. It should be mentioned that, although according to the microbiological examinations of the bioptical material a statistically significant difference was not achieved, clinical significance was achieved. The obtained significance of p < 0.035 compared to the re-epithelialization in both groups approved the application of the method of amnioplasty. The histological analysis of the bioptical material not only determines the degree of the burns specifically, but facilitates the choice of method for further treatment, observes the speed of the re-epithelialization and plays an important part in the correct diagnosis and the early start of the specific therapy, important in preventing sepsis. The application of amnion membrane as a biological dressing speeds the re-epithelialization and prevents invasive bacterial infection. Pathohistological examination of the burns is recommended to be established as a standard method in clinical practice.

    Title Influence of Hypertension on Acetaldehyde-induced Vasorelaxation in Rat Thoracic Aorta.
    Date November 2003
    Journal Pharmacological Research : the Official Journal of the Italian Pharmacological Society

    Ethanol causes vasoconstriction and contributes to the development of hypertension. Acetaldehyde (ACA), the primary metabolite of ethanol, elevates blood pressure by releasing endogenous catecholamines. In vitro, ACA leads to vasorelaxation, although the response may vary among various vascular beds. This study examined the influence of hypertensive state on the ACA-induced vasorelaxant responsiveness. Ring segments of thoracic aorta were isolated from Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) and spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) and isometric tension development was measured. In aorta with or without intact endothelium, the contractile responses to KCl and norepinephrine were greatly attenuated, whereas vasoconstrictive response to 5-HT was enhanced, by hypertension. Vasorelaxant response to histamine was similar between WKY and SHR groups. ACA (1-30 mM) elicited endothelium-intact as well as -denuded vasorelaxation in a dose-dependent manner in aorta from both WKY and SHR groups. Interestingly, the ACA-induced endothelium-intact vasorelaxation was significantly diminished, whereas the ACA-induced endothelium-denuded vasorelaxation was significantly augmented, by hypertension. These data indicated that the ACA-induced vasorelaxant response, either endothelium-intact or-denuded, is altered by the hypertensive state.

    Title The Influence of Gender, Diabetes, and Acetaldehyde on the Intrinsic Contractile Properties of Isolated Rat Myocardium.
    Date October 2002
    Journal Cardiovascular Toxicology

    Diabetes is associated with ventricular dysfunction. Ethanol consumption increases the risk of cardiovascular disease among diabetics. Acetaldehyde (ACA), the main ethanol metabolite, depresses cardiac contraction and contributes to ethanol-induced cardiac dysfunction. This study examined the influence of gender and diabetes on ACA-induced myocardial dysfunction. Adult male and female rats were made diabetic with streptozotocin (55 mg/kg). Left ventricular papillary muscles were isolated and stimulated to contract at 0.5 Hz. The mechanical parameters measured were peak tension development, time-to-peak tension (TPT), time-to-90% relaxation (RT90), and maximum velocities of tension development and decline (+/-VT). TPT and RT90 were comparably similar between genders. The +/-VT appeared to be slower in myocardium from female rats when compared to that of male counterparts, although the difference was not significant. Experimental diabetes elicited severe hyperglycemia, cardiac hypertrophy, hepatomegaly, and renal hypertrophy in both male and female animals. Myocardial mechanical properties exhibited prolonged TPT and RT90 in diabetic myocardium from both genders. The +/-VT was significantly reduced by diabetes in male but not in female myocardium. Acute ACA exposure decreased myocardial tension development and the +/-VT and shortened TPT and RT90 in myocardium from normal and diabetic rats of both genders. The ACA-induced depressant response on tension development was slightly enhanced by the diabetic state. In conclusion, these data suggest that the development of diabetes-induced myocardial dysfunction is similar between male and female animals and that the ACA-induced myocardial depressant action may be affected by diabetes but not by gender.

    Title The Children's Depression Inventory: Error in Cutoff Scores for Screening Purposes.
    Date August 2002
    Journal Psychological Assessment

    The Children's Depression Inventory (CDI) is used to screen for depression in school-age children. Such screening uses the manual's reported information on suggested cutoff scores. These cutoff scores are based on an erroneous base-rate calculation and an inadequate methodology. Data are provided showing that for the suggested cutoff scores of 13 or 20, the CDI has poor receiver-operating characteristics. Indeed, for the cutoff score of 20, suggested as being suitable for screening in the general population (e.g., schools), clinicians will miss 86% of depressed children. In conclusion, it is recommended that the CDI is better suited as a continuous measure of mood and that cutoff scores should not be used to screen for the likely presence or absence of depression.

    Title Influence of Atp-sensitive K+ Channel Modulation on the Mechanical Properties of Diabetic Myocardium.
    Date February 2002
    Journal Endocrine Research

    ATP-sensitive K+ (KATP) channels are therapeutic targets for hypertension and diabetes. KATP channel opening elicits vasorelaxation and myocardial protection, whereas its closing stimulates insulin secretion. The cardiac KATP conductance is believed altered under diabetes. This study was to evaluate the influence of KATP channel openers and blocker on myocardial contractile dysfunction in diabetes. Adult rats were made diabetic with streptozotocin (55 mg/kg) and maintained for eight weeks. Contractile properties were studied using isolated papillary muscles in the absence or presence of KATP channel openers (BRL 38227 and pinacidil) and KATP blocker (glyburide). Experimental diabetes led to hyperglycemia, reduced growth, cardiac hypertrophy and hepatomegaly. Mechanical properties exhibited prolonged duration and reduced velocity of both contraction and relaxation in diabetic myocardium, characteristic of diabetic cardiomyopathy. Acute exposure to both KATP channel openers induced concentration-dependent negative inotropic effects (NIE) on myocardial contraction. The magnitude of the NIE was similar between the normal and diabetic groups and was fully reversible upon washout for BRL 38227 although not for pinacidil. Both KATP channel openers depressed the velocity of contraction and relaxation, whereas exerted no effect on the duration of contraction and relaxation, in myocardium from both groups. Acute exposure to glyburide, a KATP channel blocker, failed to alter any of the mechanical parameters measured. These data suggest that acute modulation of KATP channel with channel opener or blocker had little influence on diabetic cardiomyopathy, at least in the setting of multicellular preparations.

    Title Dietary Magnesium Supplementation Attenuates Ethanol-induced Myocardial Dysfunction.
    Date March 1999
    Journal Alcoholism, Clinical and Experimental Research

    Hypomagnesemia is positively correlated with a number of cardiovascular abnormalities and recent evidence suggests that magnesium supplementation prevents ethanol-induced development of hypertension. The purpose of our study was to assess whether dietary magnesium supplementation effectively reverses or attenuates chronic ethanol-induced cardiac dysfunction, both at the tissue and the cellular level. Therefore, the influence of dietary magnesium supplementation during chronic ethanol ingestion on the mechanical properties of cardiac muscle was studied using isolated papillary muscles and ventricular myocytes from rat heart. In addition, the acute effects of ethanol on cardiac muscle from animals chronically exposed to ethanol in the absence and presence of dietary magnesium supplementation were also examined. Chronic ethanol exposure caused significant cardiac, hepatic, and renal enlargement, increased systolic blood pressure, and produced hypomagnesemia. After chronic ethanol exposure, the baseline force generating capacity of papillary muscles was markedly depressed and was associated with a significant slowing in the maximum velocities of contraction and relaxation. By contrast, in isolated myocytes, long-term ethanol exposure increased the extent of cell shortening associated with a significant reduction in the duration of relengthening and an increase in both the maximum velocities of shortening and relengthening. Dietary magnesium supplementation among animals chronically ingesting ethanol effectively normalized heart size, systolic blood pressure, and reduced plasma ethanol concentration. Magnesium supplementation also attenuated chronic ethanol-induced depression of contractile force and increased the extent of cell shortening. As expected, acute ethanol exposure caused a dose-dependent inhibition of both isometric force and isotonic shortening associated with a decrease in the intracellular calcium transient. However, the extent of the acute ethanol-induced reduction in isometric force and isotonic shortening was always slightly greater among preparations from animals chronically exposed to ethanol. Dietary magnesium supplementation normalized the acute inhibitory action of ethanol on isometric force, isotonic shortening, and the intracellular calcium transient. Our results suggest that dietary magnesium supplementation may attenuate chronic ethanol-induced alterations in baseline myocardial mechanical function and normalize the cardiac response to acute ethanol exposure.
