Jelic S. , Stojanovic L. , Marisavljevic D. , Popovic-Kuzmanovic D.

Background: Literature data regarding the prevalence of the syndromes of thyroid autoimmunity (AIT) in antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) are rather limited. However, quite frequently it is hypothesized on common pathophysiologic mechanisms underlining these disorders.Objectives: The aim of this investigation was to evaluate the frequency of disorders of thyroid function and occurrence of anti-thyroid antibodies (ATAs) among patients with antiphospholipid s...

Introduction: Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is anxious disorder that occurs following exposure to trauma. In the last two decades, numerous studies showed that dysregulation of hipothalamo–pituitary–adrenal axis (HPAA) is a core feature of the PTSD.

Introduction: Metabolic syndrome (MS) is an independent risk factor of coronary artery disease (CAD). We investigated how influenced this risk is by the definition of MS, and whether the risk is greater than that conferred by its components.Methods: We analyzed 200 consecutive patients (35–79 years, mean 59.23±8.6, men 132, women 68) who underwent coronary angiography due to suspected myocardial ischemia. MS was obtained by several definitions:...

Stojanovic M , Pekic S , Cvijovic G , Kendereski A , Doknic M , Miljic D , Zivkovic V , Djurovic M , Micic D , Popovic V

Hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) is an acute viral disease caused by Hantavirus. One of the rare complications of this disease is hypopituitarism (only sporadically reported) due to hemorrhage, necrosis and atrophy of anterior pituitary lobe. The aim of the study was to investigate the anterior pituitary function in patients who recovered from HFRS.We evaluated 31 patients (29 male and 2 female), aged 38.7±2.2 years, with BMI 25.7±0...

Anorexia nervosa (AN) is a product of complex interactions between physiological and psychological processes. Nausea, gastric pain and fullness are common features of AN patients. The aim of the study was to investigate the effects of therapy and psychological conditions on body weight restoration in patients with AN. In 21 AN patients (age 22.4±0.7 yrs) with gastric problems at low weight (BMI 15.9±2.3 kg/m2). oesophagogastroduodenoscopy with gastric biop...
