INTRODUCTION: Thrombocytosis is a disease where the platelet count exceeds 600,000/μl. It is usually reactive in nature, less often clonal. Reactive thrombocytosis is usually a response to reactive inflammation or infection, splenectomy, iron deficiency, pregnancy, physical effort or cancer. CASE REPORT: The case is described of a heart attack with ST-segment elevation in a 19-year-old male which was occurred due to intensive haematopoietic system renewal, caused by frequent blood donation which, in turn, caused reactive thrombocytosis...

Physical effort can elicit differential adaptive changes in the tissues of trained versus untrained rats. Proteolytic activity in the extracellular matrix could be engaged in such adaptation due to its influence on the elasticity of tissues. The effects were investigated of a single physical effort on the activity of elastase, cathepsin K, and plasmin in the skeletal muscles, heart muscles, and aortas of untrained (UT, n=30) and trained (T, n=30) rats. T rats underwent 6 weeks of endurance training. After the last training session, T and UT rats were divided randomly into 3 subgroups...

INTRODUCTION: Metabolic Syndrome is a set of interrelated risk factors for the emergence and progression of cardiovascular disease and diabetes, such as central obesity (abdominal), elevated blood pressure and disorders of carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. Peri- and postmenopausal women are particularly at risk of developing MS, by aging and the loss of protective effect of estrogen on the body, additionally by intellectual work associated with a sedentary lifestyle and job stress. The aim of our study was to analyze the frequency of MS and its criteria in perimenopausal and postmenopausal women doing intellectual work, as well as selected factors on which metabolic syndrome depend...

INTRODUCTION: In the opinion of many researchers, nursing staff are exposed to an exceptionally high level of occupational stress. The problem of stress in the working environment of the nursing staff becomes more and more important in the context of increasing staff shortages and insufficient support from colleagues and employers. The aim of this study was to analyse stress factors indicated by the nursing staff in Poland and Lithuania, and to assess their job satisfaction. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Two standard research tools were used in the study: the Nursing Stress Scale and the Job Satisfaction Survey...

INTRODUCTION: The Vipera berus (common viper) is the only species of venomous snake found in Poland. The aim of this study was to determine to what extent coagulopathy has occurred as a post-bite complication. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The medical records of 138 adult patients in the Sucha Beskidzka hospital with the diagnosis of snake bite between 2001-2014 were retrospectively analyzed. Demographic, clinical and laboratory data were collected. Antivenom was given to all patients, except one, with snake bites, but laboratory test were taken prior to administration of antivenom...

INTRODUCTION: Alcohol consumption is the world's third largest risk factor for disease and disability. According to the WHO report from 2011: 71% of urban respondents ty and 77% of rural respondents admit to alcohol consumption]. Lower socio-economic status and educational levels result in a greater risk of alcohol-related injury, disease and death. Alcohol is a common component of many medicines, as well as an ingredient in many oral hygiene home products. Mouthwashes containing alcohol are considered to inhibit wound healing in the oral cavity...

Indoor swimming pools can be used all year round and serve for one of the most popular sport pursued for recreation. The positive effect of swimming arises in particular from the involvement of all the muscles of the body, decreasing the burden on the joints, as well as functional improvement of both the lungs and heart. Chlorine is typically used to disinfect swimming pool water and as a result the changes that take place lead to the formation of by-products, such as monochloramines (NH<sub>2</sub>Cl), dichloramines (NH<sub>2</sub>Cl<sub>2</sub>) i trichloramines (NH<sub>2</sub>Cl<sub>3</sub>), trihalogenometans (THM) or haloacetic acid (HAA)...

INTRODUCTION: <i>Entamoeba gingivalis</i>, as the name implies. typically lives around the gumline of the teeth in the tartar and gingival pockets of the oral cavity. Pathogenicity of protozoa in the oral cavity is not completely understood. The occurrence in patients with a good state of the immune system usually does not cause any pathological changes. In the presentede survey, an increased incidence of <i>Entamoeba gingivalis</i> in conjunction with pathological changes in the oral cavity was found...

INTRODUCTION: In the literature there are some discrepancies concerning the occurrence of vertigo and disequilibrium, as well as the type of vestibular dysfunction in patients after mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI). OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to assess the type of vestibular system dysfunction in MTBI patients after injury at baseline and 6-month follow-up. MATERIAL AND METHODS: From a group of 188 patients with vertigo/dizziness and balance instability after MTBI, prospective analysis in 50 patients with abnormal videonystagmography (VNG) were conducted...

The <i>Dermacentor reticulatus</i> tick is a main vector of Babesia canis in Europe. The risk of canine babesiosis is unpredictable, due to significant differences in the prevalence of <i>B. canis</i> between ticks originating from closely situated regions. This phenomenon may be explained by vertical transmission of the pathogen in a vector population. Thus, molecular techniques were applied to investigate the occurrence of transovarial transmission in <i>D. reticulatus</i> ticks...

INTRODUCTION: The positive aspects of work of the underaged are perceived as including its economic value, positive role in the process of upbringing and socialization, and in the process of vocational training or economic education. However, on the other hand, attention is also paid to the negative consequences of work, such as threats to psychophysical and intellectual development, risk to health or even life, of the adolescents. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The basis for this study was a survey conducted in a group of Polish adolescents aged 14-15 years...

For the first time in the world literature, the presented study describes oral-anal contact between two sympatric <i>Ixodes ricinus</i> and <i>Dermacentor reticulatus</i> ticks, which are the vectors of many pathogens in Europe. Among the specimens collected in nature, an <i>I. ricinus</i> male was found with the hypostome and chelicerae inserted in the anal aperture of a <i>D. reticulatus</i> female. Given the biological and physiological traits of both species and microorganisms colonising these arthropods, it seems that the interspecific oral-anal contacts between ticks may be an unknown alternative route of transmission of pathogenic and symbiotic microorganisms present in ticks' alimentary tract, faeces, body surface, and in the haemolymph and organs, taking place when the male's mouthparts are inserted into the female's body...

Zoonotic serotypes of <i>Salmonella enterica</i> subsp. <i>enterica</i> are an important biological factor that poses a threat to public health, and broilers are often asymptomatic carriers of these bacteria. The aim of this study was to analyze the prevalence of <i>Salmonella</i> spp. and <i>Salmonella</i> serotypes in broiler chicken flocks in northern Poland in 2014-2016. The study was conducted on commercial flocks monitored by the Institutes of Veterinary Hygiene in Gdańsk and Olsztyn in 2014-2016...
