The aim of our study was to established possible a correlation between Holter blood pressure measurements and BP levels measured incidentally by the medical personnel. We also tried to evaluate usefulness of ABPM in monitoring intensification of the hypertension. The research was performed on 57 pregnant women where pregnancies were complicated by hypertension (PIH or chronic hypertension). All patients were divided into four groups conforming with JNC VI protocol according to BP level measured in the time of the admission to hospital. Therefore circadian blood pressure profile was done by using ABPM SpaceLab device. After that BP load indicator was estimated in each group to assess intensification of the disease. However, we compared those results between groups by using t-Student test (p < 0.05). We qualified 22 patients to group 0 with SBP = 129,45 + 6.31 mmHg and DBP = 80.59 + 5.45 mmHg in the time of admission. There were 21 pregnant women with mild hypertension (group I SBP = 144,14 + 7.32 mmHg, DBP = 93.14 + 4.52 mmHg), moderate (group II, N = 8 with SBP = 153,88 + 5.54 mmHg and DBP = 101,34 + 3.78 mmHg) and severe hypertension (group III, N = 6 with SBP = 175,83 + 33.23 mmHg, DBP = 121 + 11.92 mmHg).

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.
