The immunological homunculus conception considers somatotopic organization to СNS regulation of immune system. Previously, we have shown within the immunological homunculus conception that take place causal relationships parameters of EEG and HRV, on the one hand, and the parameters of cellular and humoral immunity as well as phagocytose, on the other hand. The purpose of this study is to find out the relationships between induced by balneotherapy changes in parameters of EEG and HRV, on the one hand, and the parameters of immunity, on the other hand. Methods. In basal conditions in 33 men and 10 women with chronic pyelonephritis and cholecystitis in remission, we recorded twice, before and after balneotherapy at the spa Truskavets’, EEG (“NeuroCom Standard”) and HRV (“Cardiolab+VSR”). In blood estimated routine parameters of Humoral Immunity on a set of I and II levels recommended by the WHO. Results. We detected that changes in relative level CD22+ B-Lymphocytes upregulated by parasympathetic outflows and β-rhythm generating structures that are projected onto the loci O2, Fp1, F3 and F4, while downregulated by sympathetic outflows and θ-rhythm generating structures that are projected onto the locus T5. Serum level of IgA upregulated by parasympathetic outflows and α-rhythm generating structures that are projected onto the loci T3 and C3 as well as δ-rhythm generating structures onto F7 and T5, while downregulated by sympathetic outflows and θ-rhythm generating structures that are projected onto the loci T5, F7, Fp2, F3, F8 and F4. Serum level of CIC upregulated by parasympathetic outflows and α-rhythm generating structures that are projected onto the loci T4, Fp2, T3, F8 and C3 as well as θ-rhythm generating structures onto the loci T3 and T6, while downregulated by sympathetic outflows and β-rhythm generating structures that are projected onto the loci Fp1, F3 and P4 as well as δ-rhythm generating structures onto T4. Unlike the previous parameters serum level of IgM downregulated by parasympathetic outflows and α-rhythm generating structures that are projected onto the loci T3 and T6 as well as β-rhythm generating structures onto the locus T5, while upregulated by sympathetic outflows and θ-rhythm generating structures that are projected onto the loci F3, Fp2, T5, F4, O1 and F8. Serum level of IgG downregulated by parasympathetic outflows, while upregulated by sympathetic outflows and δ-rhythm generating structures that are projected onto the loci O2 and F8 as well as α-rhythm generating structures onto C3. Conclusion. The results are supplemented and refined Tracey’s immunological homunculus conception.

    Background. Previously we have been carry out comparative investigation long-term effects of Bioactive Water Naftussya from layers Truskavets’, Pomyarky and Skhidnyts’a on some metabolic and biophysical parameters at men with dysfunction of neuro-endocrine-immune complex. The aim of this study is the investigation long-term effects on neuro-endocrine regulation at similar patients. Materials and methods. The object of observation were 20 volunteers: ten women and ten men aged 33-76 years without clinical diagnose but with dysfunction of neuro-endocrine-immune complex and metabolism. We evaluated the trait and reactive anxiety, recorded EEG, HRV and blood pressure, determined levels of Cortisol, Aldosterone, Testosterone, Triiodothyronine and Calcitonin. After examination volunteers within 7 days used bioactive water Naftussya (250 mL three times a day) from Truskavets’ or Pomyarky layer, then repeated the tests listed. Results. Weekly drinking of Bioactive Water Naftussya normalizes initially elevated levels of testosterone in women and reduces initially normal its level in men, in both sexes normalizes initially elevated levels of triiodothyronine and activity of the autonomic regulatory systems as the parasympathetic, so sympathetic, combined with a slight increase in the normal levels of aldosterone and trend to increase (under low) reactive anxiety as well as post occlusive reactivity of vascular tone. Among the 164 registered parameters quantitative EEG revealed noticeable changes only 8. This is, above all, normalizing increase initially reduced spectral power density (SPD) α-rhythm in loci T6 by 93%, P4 by 33%, F7 by 29%, increase by 10% in the normal range modal frequency of β-rhythm and further enhance SPD θ-rhythm in locus T5 by 42%. On the other hand, showed a reduction by 28% initially normal PSD of β-rhythm in locus in O2 and further reduction its by 20% in locus P4. Moreover, there was left-sided lateralization initially symmetric α-rhythm. No significant differences between the effects of Naftussya both deposits were found. Conclusion. Bioactive water Naftussya both Truskavets’ and Pomyarky layers causes favorable normalizing effects on abnormalities neuro-endocrine parameters, which is a manifestation of its adaptogenic properties

    Previously we examined relationships between electrokinetic index of the buccal epithelium (EKI) and some functional and metabolic parameters of patients with chronic pyelonephritis in the phase of remission. The purpose of this study is the relationships between changes in EKI and some parameters of immunity, fecal microbiocenosis as well as urine in these same patients. Materials and Methods. Under a observations were 32 males and 10 females by age 24-76 years with chronic pyelonephritis in the phase of remission. We determined the rate of electronegative nuclei of buccal epithelium by intracellular microelectrophoresis (EKI), counted up leukocytogram and calculated its adaptation and strain indexes by IL Popovych, evaluated immune status on a set of I and II levels recommended by the WHO as well as fecal microbiocenosis, bacteriuria and leukocyturia by routine methods. After 9-11 days of balneotherapy (drinking of bioactive water Naftussya, applications of ozokerite, mineral pools) all testes repeated. Results. A number of parameters of immunity and fecal microbiocenosis have been identified, the changes of which correlate with changes in EKI. A turn-based exclusion in the multiple regression model includes changes in the Killing Index by Neutrophils of E. coli, levels in the blood of T-active and 0 Lymphocytes, rod-nuclear Neutrophils, Entropy of the Immunocytogram, Popovych's Strain Index of Leukocytogram as well as Leukocytesuria and content in feces E. coli. R=0,686; R2=0,470; Adjusted R2=0,342; F(8,3)=3,7; p=0,004. Conclusion. Caused by balneotherapy, the increase in most patients in the EKI is accompanied by favorable changes in parameters of immunity and fecal microbiocenosis, which justifies its use to assess the effectiveness of balneotherapy

We detected that changes in relative level CD4+ T helper lymphocytes upregulated by parasympathetic outflows and β-rhythm generating structures that are projected onto the loci T3, T4 and P4, while downregulated by sympathetic outflows and β-rhythm generating structures that are projected onto the locus F7 as well as α-rhythm generating structures onto T6 and P4 loci. Level of CD8+ T cytolytic lymphocytes vice versa downregulated by parasympathetic outflows as well as δ-rhythm generating structures onto locus F7 and θ-rhythm generating structures onto the locus T3, while upregulated by θ-rhythm generating structures onto the locus T4. Level of CD16+ natural killers upregulated by sympathetic outflows and β-rhythm generating structures that are projected onto the loci T4, T5 and C3 as well as α-rhythm generating structures onto the locus T4, while downregulated by parasympathetic outflows and β-rhythm generating structures that are projected onto the loci Fp1 and F4 as well as α-rhythm generating structures onto the loci P4, O1 and O2, θ-rhythm generating structures onto the loci F7, T5, T6 and O2 as well as δ-rhythm generating structures that are projected onto the loci F7, T5 and T6. Level of 0-lymphocytes upregulated by sympathetic outflows and δ-rhythm generating structures that are projected onto the loci F7 and T5 as well as α-rhythm generating structures onto the loci P4 and O2, while downregulated by β-rhythm generating structures that are projected onto the loci T5 and O1. Conclusion. The results are supplemented and refined Tracey’s immunological homunculus conception

    Get PDF
    Background. This article begins with a series of articles on the effects on parameters of water-salt, nitrous and lipid metabolism, as well as the neuroendocrine-immune complex of mineral water, extracted from the bore located in the city Gertsa (Bukovyna, Ukraine). The chemical analysis prompted us to use waters Sophiya and Naftussya from spa Truskavets’ as a reference as well as an artificial salt analogue of Gertsa water, which contains no organic matter or trace elements. Materials and methods. Experiment was performed on 58 healthy female Wistar rats 240-290 g divided into 6 groups. Animals of the first group remained intact, using tap water from drinking ad libitum. Instead, the other rats received the same tap water as well as waters Sophiya, Naftussya, Gertsa and its artificial salt analogue through the probe at a dose of 1,5 mL/100 g of body mass for 6 days. The day after the completion of the drinking course in all rats the parameters of metabolism and neuroendocrine-immune complex were registered. Results. Screening registered parameters found 42 among them who in rats subjected to water-salt loads, significantly different from that of intact rats, but on average the same group of animals that received liquids with different mineralization and chemical composition. Conclusion. Takes place nonspecific (general) reaction neuroendocrine-immune complex and metabolism in water-salt load as such, regardless of the specific chemical composition of fluids applied

    Background. Organic substances, despite their presence in all drinking mineral waters, are still considered to be active only in the water of Naftussya type (which, due to mineralization less than 1 g/L, are not formally mineral), whereas the physiological activity of true mineral waters (which mineralization is greater than 1-2 g/L) are associated with electrolytes and trace elements. The purpose of this study was to clarify the role of organic carbon and nitrogen of mineral waters in their effects on certain parameters of metabolism. Material and Methods. Experiment was performed on 48 healthy female Wistar rats 240-290 g divided into 5 groups. Animals of the first group for 6 days administered a single tap water through the probe at a dose of 1,5 mL/100 g of body mass. In the second group we administered the water Naftussya from the Truskavets’ layer, in the third group the water Sophiya of the Truskavets’ field. The rats of the fourth group received the native water from the Gertsa (Bucovyna) field, and the last group its artificial salt analogue. The day after the completion of the drinking course in all rats some metabolic parameters were registered. Results. On the basis of the correlation analysis with step-by-step exclusion, four metabolites of blood as well as five metabolites of urine are included in the regressive model for organic carbon (R=0,697; R2=0,486; Adjusted R2=0,347; F(10,4)=3,5; p=0,0025). Organic nitrogen of mineral waters affects five metabolic parameters of urine only, but with approximately the same force (R=0,621; R2=0,385; Adjusted R2=0,312; F(5,4)=5,3; p=0,0008). Conclusion. Organic substances of mineral waters play an essential role in their effects on the parameters of metabolism

    Cluster analysis of uric acid exchange parameters in female rats

    Get PDF
    Background. Uric acid is traditionally considered as the final product of human and primate DNA/RNA degradation, devoid ofuseful physiological activity. However, there is an opinion that theuric acid molecule, by analogy with methylxanthines (caffeine, theophylin, theobromine) has physiological activity. The acquired experience allows us to offer a topic for future research: “Neurotropic and immunotropic activity of endogenous uric acid”. Working hypothesis. Uric acid, interacting with A1 and A2a adenosine receptors as well as phosphodiesterase and Na,K-ATPase of neurons, modulates the activity of nerve centers, which in turn modulate immunocytes. Perhaps the direct effect of uric acid on immunocytes, since the existence oftheophylline-resistant and theophylline-sensitive subpopulations of T-lymphocytes has long been known. The proposed article is the first swallow of the announced project.Material and Methods. Experiment was performed on 58 healthy female Wistar rats 220-300 g. Among them 10 animals remained intact, using tap water from drinking ad libitum. The rats of others groups for 6 days administered through the tube various fluids at a dose of 1,5 mL/100 g of body mass.The day after the completion of the drinking course the plasma and urine levels of the uric acid (uricase method) were determined. Results. We obtained a wide range of uric acid metabolism parameters, divided into four clusters, quantitatively and qualitatively different from each other. On the basis of the accepted criteria, 29,3% of animals state normouricemia in combination with normal or slightly increased excretion of uric acid. In 24,1% of rats, hypouricemia is combined with normal or slightly reduced uricosuria. In 31,0% of animals normal or slightly elevated levels of plasma uric acid are accompanied by a very marked dispersion of uricosuria. The remaining 15,5% of rats expressed hyperuricemia combined with normal or slightly increased uricosuria. In the following articles, functional relationships of uricemia and uricosuria with the parameters of autonomic regulation, immunity and metabolism will be analyzed

    Background. The presence of influence both sympathetic and vagus links of the autonomic nervous system to the immune system is generally recognized, but the data on their specific immunotropic effects are ambiguous. This includes, in particular, immune responses to the stress-induced shift of sympatho-vagal balance. The purpose of this study is to identify the characteristics of the immune profile, as well as the microbiota associated with it, in persons whose immune status is susceptible or resistant to chronic stress. Materials and Methods. The object of observation were 32 men and 8 women with chronic pyelonephritis in remission. The criterion for inclusion was the magnitude of the sympatho-vagal balance index LF/HF (recorded by "CardioLab+HRV"), which exceeded the age norm by 0,5 σ. Immune status evaluated on a set of I and II levels recommended by the WHO. The observed contingent by pair matching of persons with the same values of LF/HF ratio was retrospectively divided into two groups, almost identical to the average value of LF/HF and its dispersion, but with opposite deviations from the norm of the immune status index. Results. Immune profiles constructed on Z-scores can be divided into three networks. The first set contains 8 parameters (Killing Index vs E. coli and Staph. aur., IL-6, Entropy of LCG, Popovych’s Strain Index of LCG, Igg G and M as well as Microbial Count E. coli) that are not significantly different from persons who are stress-sensitive and stress-resistant. 18 parameters of the second set (Leukocytes, Phagocytose Index vs E. coli and Staph. aur.(PhIA), B-Lymphocytes, Segmented Neutrophils, Microbial Count Staph. aur., T-active (Ta), T-cytolytic and Natural Killers Lymphocytes (NK), IgA, Bactericidity vs E. coli and Staph. aur. (BCA), Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus feces, Stub Neutrophils, T-helpers, Popovych’s Adaptation Index of LCG (PAI) as well as CIC) to a greater or lesser degree higher in stress-resistant persons. Instead, the 8 parameters of the third set (Lymphocytes, Monocytes and Eosinophils (E), TNF-α, IL-1 as well as Popovych’s Strain Index of LCG, 0-Lymphocytes and Hemolytica E. coli HEC) are higher in stress-sensitive persons. The method of discriminant analysis revealed 9 parameters (ranked by criterion Λ: 0-Lym, BCA, HEC, Ta, CIC, E, PhIA, PAI, NK) that characterize the features of immune profile of stress-susceptible and stress-resistant persons

    Features of neuro-endocrine and immune reactions to various water-salt loads in female rats

    Background. Previously, we have shown that the weekly load of rats with water-salt solutions of different chemical compositions causes both general and specific reactions of the parameters of metabolism. The purpose of this study is to identify under these conditions specific neuroendocrine and immune responses. Materials and methods. Experiment was performed on 58 healthy female Wistar rats 240-290 g divided into 6 groups. Animals of the first group remained intact, using tap water from drinking ad libitum. Instead, the other rats received the same tap water as well as waters Sophiya, Naftussya, Gertsa and its artificial salt analogue through the probe at a dose of 1,5 mL/100 g of body mass for 6 days. The day after the completion of the drinking course in all rats some neuroendocrine and immune parameters were registered. Results. The method of discriminant analysis revealed 29 parameters of the neuroendocrine-immune complex (10 of them reflect the neuroendocrine regulation, 4 thymus mass and thymocytogram elements, 5 elements of splenocytogram, 10 elements of immunocytogram and leukocytogram of blood and parameters of phagocytosis), according to which the reaction on various water-salt loads are identified with an accuracy of 98.3%. Conclusion. The peculiarities of the reactions of the parameters of the neuroendocrine-immune complex are due to the content of water in sulfate, bicarbonate and magnesium, as well as organic carbon and nitrogen

    Background. Previously we have shown within the immunological homunculus conception that take place causal relationships between induced by balneotherapy changes in parameters of EEG and HRV, on the one hand, and the parameters of humoral and cellular immunity, on the other hand. The purpose of this study is to find out the relationships between induced by balneotherapy changes in parameters of EEG and HRV, on the one hand, and the parameters of phagocytosis , on the other hand. Material and methods. In basal conditions in 33 men and 10 women with chronic pyelonephritis and cholecystitis in remission, we recorded twice, before and after balneotherapy at the spa Truskavets’, EEG (“NeuroCom Standard”) and HRV (“Cardiolab+VSR”). In blood estimated parameters of phagocytic function of neutrophils against Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli. Results. Judging by the coefficients of canonical correlation, the maximal subordinate nervous regulation is the completeness of phagocytosis of E. coli (R=0,944), whereas the influence of the nervous system on the completeness of phagocytosis Staph. aur. is minimal (R=0,607). With regard to the intensity of phagocytosis, the differences in the strength of nerve influence are expressed less (0,893 vs 0,744), and in relation to the activity of phagocytosis as well as the bactericidal ability of neutrophils, there are no differences between R (0,858 vs 0,857 and 0,831 vs 0,834, respectively). However, significant differences were found between profiles of correlation coefficients between EEG and HRV parameters, on the one hand, and phagocytosis parameters, on the other hand, for representatives of Gram-negative and Gram-positive microbes. Conclusion. In the nervous regulation of phagocytosis by neutrophils of the Gram-negative and Gram-positive microbes are involved the structures that are localized in different parts of the CNS
