Comparison of 4 and 128-slice MHCT at CT angiography of brain vessels in patients with arterial hypertension
Objective: To compare the diagnostic information about the state of the brain vessels in patients with arterial hypertension obtained at investigations using 4 and 128-slice CT.
Material and Methods: The study involved 88 patients aged 21-75 who were divided into 4 groups depending on the level of the total cardiovascular risk: 62 patients were investigated using 4-sliceCT and 26 128-slice CT. At 4-slice MHCT, protocol Gerebral CTA was used in 38 patients, Sure Start program in 24 patients. At 128-slice CT Neuro DSACT program was used in 11 patients, Carotid DSACT in 15 patients.
Results: The following changes of the intracranial vessels were observed in patients with arterial hypertension: narrowing of the vertebral artery (44 patients, 50 % ), S-like deviation of the inner carotid artery (ICA) (22 patients, 25 %), curved ICA (25 patients, 28.41%), narrowed ICA (12 patients, (13.4 %), narrowed anterior cerebral artery (20 patients, 32.95 %). Twenty-three cases (26.14 %) of brain vessel aplasia and 37 cases (42.04 %) of brain vessel hypoplasia were registered.
Conclusion: MHCT angiography in patients with arterial hypertension allows accurate and reliable detection of the changes in the brain vessels. The advantages of 128-slice CT is the use of smaller amounts of contrast substance, on an average by 30%, reduction of irradiation dose by 47.4%, as well as larger area of scanning when compared with 4-slice CT.
Key words: multihelical computed tomography, angio graphy, arterial hypertension, intracranial vessels, irradiation dose.

Liver-specific lipoprotein as a possible marker of immune tolerance arrest under the influence of low-dose ionizing radiation
Objective: To investigate the role of liver-specific lipoprotein (LSL) in formation of autoimmune liver lesions under the influence of low-dose ionizing radiation (IR).
Material and Methods: The following methods were used in the study: immunoenzyme essay, affine chromatography, immune blotting, and electrophoresis in polyacrylate gel in the conditions of denaturation.
Results: It was shown that prolonged influence of low-dose low-intensity ionizing radiation was associated with increase of serum levels of autoantibodies to LSL. These levels were close to those of autoantibodies (AAB) to LSL found in patients with chronic hepatitis.
Conclusion: Prolonged influence of low-dose low-intensity IR associated with increase of serum AAB to LSL can suggest about a negative effect of low-dose IR on the immune tolerance of the organism and explain the increase in the exposed population of the disease frequency of the diseases with an important role of autoimmunity reactions in the disease pathogenesis.
Key words: autoimmunity, immune tolerance, low-dose radiation, liver-specific lipoprotein.

Comparative investigation of tumor markers of thymidinkinase β2-microglobulin as prognostic factors in patients with acute myoblast leukemia
Summary. The author presents the findings of determining the levels of TK and β2 MG in the blood serum of the patients with AML during the treatment using a standard protocol of remission induction 7+3. It was proven that TK was an inde pendent prognostic factor of AML malignant course and an important criterion of the treatment efficacy. Its parameters did not correlate with the amount of leukocytes in the blood and blast cells in the bone marrow, β2 MG is not an independent prognostic factor of the course of AML and response to CT but is an additional criterion of the treatment efficacy. Its level does not possess differential diagnosis significance in iden tification of AML variants but can be used as a criterion of remission completeness and in early diagnosis of relapses. It was determined that the lower are the initial indices of TK and β2 MG, the higher is remission probability. In cases when it is not complete, TK and β2 MG levels do not achieve the normal parameters, even if they decrease.
