Galashina E.A., Ulyanov V.Y., Bondarenko A.S.


Aim. To assess the separate indices of blood serum bone tissue metabolism content in patients with instability of prostheses after the primary knee joint arthroplasty.

Materials and methods. The main group joined 40 patients with implant-associated inflammation, the comparison group – 40 patients with primary aseptic instability of prostheses, the control – 20 conditionally healthy donors. The blood serum hPTH and 25-OH Vitamin D content was determined using solid-phase immune-enzyme assay.

Results. Among the patients of the main group, blood serum hPTH concentration increased as compared with the control after1 and 12 months following the surgery and compared with each previous observation period; 25-OH Vitamin D level decreased compared with the control before the surgery, after1 and 12 months following the surgical intervention and compared with each previous period of observation. In the patients of the comparison group versus the control values, blood serum hPTH concentration elevated and 25-OH Vitamin D level declined after 1 and 12 months following the surgery and compared with the previous observation period 1 month later.

Conclusions. When estimating the blood serum hPTH and 25-OH Vitamin D content in patients with instability of prostheses after the primary knee joint arthroplasty, there were revealed multidirectional changes in their levels, showing bone tissue metabolic disorders.

Monocyte chemotactic factor content in normal sperm and in samples of ejaculate with diminished fertility

Sosnin D.Y., Galkovich K.R.


Aim. To study the dynamics of monocyte chemotactic factor (MCP-1) content in the ejaculate of healthy men and men with diminished spermatozoid concentration.

Material and methods.Sixty-four men were examined. The main group included 16 patients with azoospermia. The comparison group – 24 patients with oligozooasthenospermia (spermatozoid concentration lower than 15 mln/ml). The control group was presented by ejaculate samples of 24 healthy men, characterized by normal parameters. The MCP-1 concentration was determined with the method of solid phase enzyme immunoassay using the assay kit “MCP-1-EIA-BEST” (A8784) (CJSC Vector-Best, Russia).

Results. The mean MCP-1 concentration in the samples of undiluted seminal plasma was 2242.8 ± 672.0 pg/ml versus the blood serum, where MCP-1 content was 18.9 times lower and was 118.8 ± 22.9 pg/ml. No reliable differences were revealed when comparing the mean values of MCP-1 in the studied groups in ejaculates; there were also no statistically significant difference between the indices in MCP-1 groups in the blood serum.

Conclusions. Male seminal plasma is characterized by unusually high MCP-1 content, exceeding more than tenfold the concentration of this protein in the blood serum. High MCP-1 concentration in sperm and the absence of its dependence on the concentration of this protein in blood serum indicates local production of this protein into the seminal plasma by male reproductive organs. Further studies are needed to find out a concrete localization of the sites of production of this protein in male genital organs and to study its probable role in reproductive processes in male and female organisms.

Characteristic features of lysocim influence on growth kinetics of candida albicans fungi

Godovalov A.P., Pastukhov D.M.


Aim.To assess the growth kinetics and biofilm-forming activity of Candida albicans strains when cultivated in nutrient medium with different concentrations of lysocim.

Materials and methods. Growth kinetics of strains was determined by changes in optic density of suspension at 620 nm, and biofilms detected them by their staining with fuchsin. The results were registered on photometer.

Results.Lysocim changes the growth kinetics of C. albicans, reducing the duration of exponential and prolonging the stationary phases of growth. It was established that increased lysocim concentration positively influences the proliferative activity of the fungi. As lysocim concentration is increased, C. albicans biofilm-forming activity is elevating.

Conclusions. Thus, the increased level of lysocim contributes to transition of fungi into the plankton form of growth that should be taken into consideration when treating patients with candidiasis.

Peritoneal adhesion: state of issue and modern methods of prevention

Samartsev V.A., Gavrilov V.A., Pushkarev B.S., Parshakov A.A., Kuznetsova M.P., Kuznetsova M.V.


Peritoneal adhesion (PA) is still an actual surgical issue. It is known that any surgical intervention causes abdominal adhesion that, in its turn, induces a number of complications such as adhesive intestinal obstruction. There is registered a high lethality among patients with the developed acute adhesive intestinal obstruction. Adhesive intestinal obstruction hurts health of patients, leading to eight (on average) days of hospitalization and intrahospital lethality of 3 % per episode. The cause of the development of a significant number of lethal cases is imperfection of preventive, diagnostic, therapeutic measures; 20 to 30 % of patients with adhesive intestinal obstruction need surgical treatment. Heavy expenses in the system of healthcare are required for treatment of peritoneal adhesions. The review presents the data regarding modern state of the problem, advanced tendencies in diagnosis, prevention and treatment of patients with peritoneal adhesions, their use in practical studies.

Clinical case of unfavorable pregnancy outcome for the newborn in immunoincompatible pregnancy: difficulties of diagnosis and treatment

Padrul M.M., Semyagina L.M., Sadykova G.K., Semyagin I.


During the whole period of gestation, there occur complicated immunobiological mother-fetus relationships, which to a large extent determine further course of pregnancy and outcome for the newborn. Hemolysis of erythrocytes under the influence of antibodies,formed in mothers to fetal erythrocyte antigens, causes hemolytic disease of the fetus/newborn. The problem of hemolytic disease in immunoincompatible pregnancy,first of all in Rh-incompatibility, can’t be considered completely solved in this country,despite the achievements of perinatal medicine. The paper presents a clinical case of unfavorable perinatal pregnancy outcome in case of rhesus-immunization of the mother against the background of growing titer of highly agglutinable class of antibodies and unstable indices of maximum systolic speed in the medial cerebral artery (growth up to the zone “A” with successive fall to the zone “C”) without any other signs of fetal disorders available. This clinical case demonstrates actuality of the problem and difficulties in diagnosis of hemolytic disease of the fetus.

Crohn’s disease complications, requiring surgical treatment

Klimentov M.N., Styazhkina S.N., Neganova O.A., Lyubimtseva M.S., Semibratova E.V., Turbin O.D.


Crohn’s disease sickness rate is 0.3–0.2 per 100000 persons, its prevalence is 322 per 100000 persons; Up to 60–70 % of patients with Crohn’s disease undergo this or that type of surgical intervention – from opening of paraproctitis to extensive intestinal resections. Uninterrupted course of disease and probability of severe relapses induce application of long postoperative drug therapy to avoid repeated operations. Repeated resections of the bowel in Crohn’s disease are dangerous from the position of the development of short bowel syndrome, severe digestive disorders. Surgical treatment in Crohn’s disease is aimed at prevention of complications and improvement of patients’ quality of life, if drug therapy is useless.
