Diabetes mellitus causes endothelial dysfunction. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of normal (5 mmol/L), high (20 mmol/L), and fluctuating (5 and 20 mmol/L changed every day) glucose concentration in the culture medium on the viability of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) co-cultured with human umbilical artery smoo...
Article
Assessment of progress in chronic wound healing is very important as it enables deciding when the applied therapy should be replaced with a more advanced one. Wound healing societies recommend using the rate in wound surface area reduction as a marker of the therapy effectiveness. If the wound surface area did not reduce by 50% or more in 4 weeks o...
Article
Some clinical studies reported that glucose variability increased the risk of developing diabetes-related late complications more than constant hyperglycemia, while others claimed that the evidence was not strong enough to support such a conclusion. A few in vitro studies investigated the effect of constantly high or variable glucose levels (VGLs)...
Article
Human endothelial cells are used in experimental models for studying in vitro pathophysiological mechanisms of different diseases. We developed an original bioreactor, which can simulate human blood vessel, with capillary polysulfone membranes covered with the human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) and we characterized its properties. The...

In the treatment of chronic wounds the wound surface area change over time is useful parameter in assessment of the applied therapy plan. The more precise the method of wound area measurement the earlier may be identified and changed inappropriate treatment plan. Digital planimetry may be used in wound area measurement and therapy assessment when i...
Conference Paper
The main objective of this study was to asses usefulness of usage of transmembrane pressure changes measurements for monitoring of cells culture in the closed construction of bioreactor with semipermeable capillary membranes. Two simultaneous HUVECs’ cultures in bioreactors with an assumed cells densities of 20,000 and 60,000 cells/cm2 were carried...
Article
Purpose: The objective was to assess glucose, lactate, glycerol, and pyruvate concentrations in the interstitial fluid of the adipose tissue as well as the glucose relative recovery coefficient in reference to capillary blood (RC) during the first two days of the standard treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) in patients with type 1 and type 2...
Article
The aim of the present study was to verify a system for continuous monitoring of feet temperature. The temperature measurement system developed in cooperation of the Center for Biomedical Technology (Krems, Austria) and Digilog Inc. (Perg, Austria) company was used for monitoring of the skin temperature on foot. The temperature monitoring device...
Article
The paper presents a method for the preparation of sulfonated polysulfone in order to receive a matrix to immobilisation of biomolecules. Optimum conditions of the synthesis are described. The phase inversion method was used to prepare a sulfonated polysulfone membrane and then urease was immobilized on the surface of the prepared matrix. Com-paris...
Article
Proper healing of ulcers and wounds on the feet of diabetes patients is important in order to prevent amputation. If the wound area reduction during the first 4 weeks of the treatment is not 40% or more, reevaluation of the treatment is necessary. The wound area evaluation is not complicated when the patient stays at a hospital, but when he or she...
Article
The paper presents results of comparison of the wound area assessment methods in the diabetic foot syndrome (DFS). Wound size is a basic parameter that is used to evaluate efficacy of the applied treatment. Four measurement methods were used: the rulers, the planimetric Visitrak (Smith & Nephew, England), the Silhouette (Aranz Medical, New Zealand)...
Article
The objective of the study was to establish the quasi-continuous courses, using microdialysis technique, of glucose, lactate, and glycerol concentrations in interstitial fluid of abdominal adipose tissue during the standard treatment of acute diabetes complications. Clinical studies were carried out on 31 diabetic patients during the initial 48 h o...
Article
This study presents actually available membrane systems devoted to therapeutic and diagnostic applications. In particular LDL apheresis systems including new Two Stage Membrane System with Recirculation (TSMS) and the microdialysis technique are discussed. Application of the membrane systems to therapeutic purposes with utilization of methods impro...

The results of predictions of three mathematical models used to describe the impact of convective flow on dialyzer clearance are presented. These models are based on the ordinary differential equations, which describe changes of solute concentration and solute and fluid flows along the module length. One of the models takes into consideration the e...
Article
A membrane plasma fractionation (MPS) technique is applied in order to obtain selective removal of pathological plasma components from the extracorporeal circuit. An effective plasma fractionation procedure should be characterized by the highest possible removal of the pathological plasma components and, equally as important, the lowest unwanted pr...
