Suppression of atherosclerotic development in Watanabe heritable hyperlipidemic rabbits treated with an oral antiallergic drug, tranilast. (1/477)

BACKGROUND: Inflammatory and immunological responses of vascular cells have been shown to play a significant role in the progression of atheromatous formation. Tranilast [N-(3,4-dimethoxycinnamoyl) anthranillic acid] inhibits release of cytokines and chemical mediators from various cells, including macrophages, leading to suppression of inflammatory and immunological responses. This study tested whether tranilast may suppress atheromatous formation in Watanabe heritable hyperlipidemic (WHHL) rabbits. METHODS AND RESULTS: WHHL rabbits (2 months old) were given either 300 mg x kg-1 x d-1 of tranilast (Tranilast, n=12) or vehicle (Control, n=13) PO for 6 months. Tranilast treatment was found to suppress the aortic area covered with plaque. Immunohistochemical analysis showed that there was no difference in the percentage of the RAM11-positive macrophage area and the frequency of CD5-positive cells (T cells) in intimal plaques between Tranilast and Control. Major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class II expression in macrophages and interleukin-2 (IL-2) receptor expression in T cells, as markers of the immunological activation in these cells, was suppressed in atheromatous plaque by tranilast treatment. Flow cytometry analysis of isolated human and rabbit peripheral blood mononuclear cells showed that an increase in expression both of MHC class II antigen on monocytes by incubation with interferon-gamma and of IL-2 receptor on T cells by IL-2 was suppressed by the combined incubation with tranilast. CONCLUSIONS: The results indicate that tranilast suppresses atherosclerotic development partly through direct inhibition of immunological activation of monocytes/macrophages and T cells in the atheromatous plaque.  (+info)

Tranilast suppresses vascular chymase expression and neointima formation in balloon-injured dog carotid artery. (2/477)

BACKGROUND: Activation of vascular chymase plays a major role in myointimal hypertrophy after vascular injury by augmenting the production of angiotensin (ANG) II. Because chymase is synthesized mainly in mast cells, we assumed that the chymase-dependent ANG II formation could be downregulated by tranilast, a mast cell-stabilizing antiallergic agent. We have assessed inhibitory effects of tranilast on neointima formation after balloon injury in the carotid artery of dogs, which share a similar ANG II-forming chymase with humans, and further explored the pathophysiological significance of vascular chymase. METHODS AND RESULTS: Either tranilast (50 mg/kg BID) or vehicle was orally administered to beagles for 2 weeks before and 4 weeks after balloon injury. Four weeks after the injury, remarkable neointima was formed in the carotid arteries of vehicle-treated dogs. Chymase mRNA levels and chymaselike activity of vehicle-treated injured arteries were increased 10.2- and 4.8-fold, respectively, those of uninjured arteries. Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) activity was slightly increased in the injured arteries, whereas ACE mRNA levels were not. Tranilast treatment completely prevented the increase in chymaselike activity, reduced the chymase mRNA levels by 43%, and decreased the carotid intima/media ratio by 63%. In vehicle-treated injured arteries, mast cell count in the adventitia showed a great increase, which was completely prevented by the tranilast treatment. Vascular ACE activity and mRNA levels were unaffected by tranilast. CONCLUSIONS: Tranilast suppressed chymase gene expression, which was specifically activated in the injured arteries, and prevented neointima formation. Suppression of the chymase-dependent ANG II-forming pathway may contribute to the beneficial effects of tranilast.  (+info)

Three distinct anti-allergic drugs, amlexanox, cromolyn and tranilast, bind to S100A12 and S100A13 of the S100 protein family. (3/477)

To investigate the roles of calcium-binding proteins in degranulation, we used three anti-allergic drugs, amlexanox, cromolyn and tranilast, which inhibit IgE-mediated degranulation of mast cells, as molecular probes in affinity chromatography. All of these drugs, which have different structures but similar function, scarcely bound to calmodulin in bovine lung extract, but bound to the same kinds of calcium-binding proteins, such as the 10-kDa proteins isolated in this study, calcyphosine and annexins I-V. The 10-kDa proteins obtained on three drug-coupled resins and on phenyl-Sepharose were analysed by reversed-phase HPLC. It was found that two characteristic 10-kDa proteins, one polar and one less polar, were bound with all three drugs, although S100A2 (S100L), of the S100 family, was bound with phenyl-Sepharose. The cDNA and deduced amino acid sequence proved our major polar protein to be identical with the calcium-binding protein in bovine amniotic fluid (CAAF1, S100A12). The cDNA and deduced amino acid sequence of the less-polar protein shared 95% homology with human and mouse S100A13. In addition, it was demonstrated that the native S100A12 and recombinant S100A12 and S100A13 bind to immobilized amlexanox. On the basis of these findings, we speculate that the three anti-allergic drugs might inhibit degranulation by binding with S100A12 and S100A13.  (+info)

Ketotifen and cardiovascular effects of xamoterol following single and chronic dosing in healthy volunteers. (4/477)

AIMS: To study whether desensitization occurs after long-term administration of the 1-adrenoceptor partial agonist xamoterol and, if so, whether this can be influenced by ketotifen. METHODS: In a double-blind, randomized design 10 young, healthy males received ketotifen (2 x 1 mg day(-1) p.o.) or placebo for 3 weeks with xamoterol (2 x 200 mg day(-1) p.o.) administered concomitantly during the last 2 weeks. 'l1-adrenoceptor mediated responses were assessed as exercise-induced tachycardia and isoprenaline-induced shortening of heart rate corrected electromechanical systole (QS2c); isoprenaline-induced tachycardia was measured as a mixed beta1-/beta2-adrenoceptor-mediated effect. RESULTS: The first dose of xamoterol significantly increased resting heart rate and systolic blood pressure and significantly shortened QS2c. The last dose of xamoterol after 2 weeks of treatment still produced the same responses. Ketotifen did not influence these effects of xamoterol on resting haemodynamics. The first dose of xamoterol caused a rightward shift of the exercise- and isoprenaline-induced tachycardia (mean dose ratios+/-s.e.mean: 1.20+/-0.05 and 2.46+/-0.23) and the isoprenaline-evoked shortening of QS2c (dose ratio 3.59+/-0.68). This rightward shift was even more pronounced after 2 weeks xamoterol treatment. This additional rightward shift after 2 weeks of xamoterol was not affected by ketotifen (mean difference (95% CI) of log transformed dose ratios between placebo and ketotifen: exercise tachycardia 0.001 (-0.03; 0.04); isoprenaline tachycardia 0.03 (-0.15; 0.21); isoprenaline induced shortening of QS2c 0.13 (-0.22; 0.48)). CONCLUSIONS: In humans xamoterol is a partial beta1-adrenoceptor agonist with positive chrono- and inotropic effects at rest and antagonistic properties under conditions of beta-adrenoceptor stimulation. These effects were well maintained after chronic dosing with no signs of beta1-adrenoceptor desensitization. Ketotifen does not change the beta-adrenoceptor mediated responses of xamoterol after chronic dosing.  (+info)

Comparison of intranasal triamcinolone acetonide with oral loratadine in the treatment of seasonal ragweed-induced allergic rhinitis. (5/477)

A double-blind, randomized, multicenter, parallel-group controlled study compared the efficacy and safety of intranasal triamcinolone acetonide (220 micrograms/day) and oral loratadine (10 mg/day) in patients with at least two seasons of ragweed-induced seasonal allergic rhinitis. A 28-day screening period, including a 5-day baseline period, preceded a 4-week treatment period. Reduction in rhinitis symptom scores was evident in both groups as early as day 1, with no significant between-group differences during week 1. At weeks 2, 3, and 4, patients treated with triamcinolone acetonide were significantly (P < 0.05) more improved in total nasal score, nasal itch, nasal stuffiness, and sneezing than were patients treated with loratadine. At weeks 3 and 4, rhinorrhea and ocular symptoms were significantly (P < 0.05) more improved from baseline among triamcinolone acetonide patients compared with loratadine patients. There was no significant between-group difference in relief from postnasal drip at any time point. Physicians' global evaluations significantly (P = 0.002) favored triamcinolone acetonide at the final visit, with moderate to complete relief of symptoms attained by 68% of triamcinolone acetonide patients and 59% of loratadine patients. Over the 4-week treatment period, triamcinolone acetonide patients had significantly greater improvement in total nasal score, nasal itch, nasal stuffiness, sneezing, and ocular symptoms. Both treatments were well tolerated, with headache being the most frequently reported drug-related adverse effect in both the triamcinolone acetonide (15%) and loratadine (11%) groups. These results indicate that triamcinolone acetonide is more effective than oral loratadine in relieving the symptoms of ragweed-induced seasonal allergic rhinitis.  (+info)

Long term prevention of allergic lung inflammation in a mouse model of asthma by CpG oligodeoxynucleotides. (6/477)

Asthma is an inflammatory disease of the airways that is induced by Th2 cytokines and inhibited by Th1 cytokines. Despite a steady increase in the incidence, morbidity, and mortality from asthma, no current treatment can reduce or prevent asthma for a prolonged period. We examined the ability of unmethylated CpG oligodeoxynucleotides (ODN), which are potent inducers of Th1 cytokines, to prevent the inflammatory and physiological manifestations of asthma in mice sensitized to ragweed allergen. Administration of CpG ODN 48 h before allergen challenge increased the ratio of IFN-gamma to IL-4 secreting cells, diminished allergen-induced eosinophil recruitment, and decreased the number of ragweed allergen-specific IgE-producing cells. These effects of CpG ODN were sustained for at least 6 wk after its administration. Furthermore, there was a vigorous Th1 memory response to the recall Ag, inhibition of peribronchial and perivascular lung inflammation, and inhibition of bronchial hyperresponsiveness 6 wk after administration of CpG ODN. Administration of CpG ODN in IFN-gamma -/- mice failed to inhibit eosinophil recruitment, indicating a critical role of IFN-gamma in mediating these effects. This is the first report of a treatment that inhibits allergic lung inflammation in presensitized animals for a prolonged period and thus has relevance to the development of an effective long term treatment for asthma.  (+info)

Adhesive explant culture of allergic nasal mucosa: effect of emedastine difumarate, an anti-allergic drug. (7/477)

Allergic reaction of the nose comprises of an immediate and a late reaction. To evaluate nasal allergic reactions, many experiments have been performed by investigators. In this study, we performed a new tissue culture technique (adhesive explant culture) to analyze the migration of cells into the culture medium from the cultured allergic nasal mucosa in response to an allergen. Basophilic cells (mast cells and basophils) and eosinophils, which were released into the culture medium after the allergen challenge, were evaluated by the analysis of histamine and eosinophil cationic protein (ECP) content in the culture medium. Histamine and basophilic cells in the culture medium were more abundant in the immediate phase (within 30 min) after challenge than in the late phase (from 30 min to 10 hr). On the other hand, ECP and eosinophils in the culture medium were more abundant in the late phase than in the immediate phase. The increase of histamine content in both phases were not inhibited by pre-treatment of emedastine difumarate (EME), an anti-allergic drug. However, the increase of ECP in the late phase was inhibited by pre-treatment with EME. Moreover, the number of EG2-positive cells was also decreased by pre-treatment with EME. These results suggest that EME might lower the activation of eosinophils in the late phase of the allergic reaction. The present study also indicates that this adhesive explant culture system is useful model for studying the cellular allergic responses to drugs ex vivo.  (+info)

Effect of an orally active Th1/Th2 balance modulator, M50367, on IgE production, eosinophilia, and airway hyperresponsiveness in mice. (8/477)

We have found a novel anti-allergic agent, M50367, which suppresses IgE biosynthesis and eosinophil accumulation in vivo. In this study, we evaluated the ability of M50367 to modulate Th1/Th2 balance in Th2-background BALB/c mice and to inhibit airway hyperresponsiveness in a murine model of atopic asthma. Oral M50367 at 3-30 mg/kg/day exhibited 51 to 73% reduction of IL-4/IL-5 production and 2- to 5-fold augmentation of IFN-gamma production by Ag-stimulated cultured splenocytes of the mice sensitized with DNP-Ascaris. These alterations in Th1/Th2 cytokine production were accompanied by 55-85% suppression of plasma IgE level. Oral M50367 at a dose of 10 mg/kg/day significantly inhibited Ig-independent peritoneal eosinophilia by 54%, which was induced by repeated i.p. injections of Ascaris suum extract. To develop airway hyperresponsiveness caused by allergic airway inflammation, BALB/c mice were sensitized with i.p. OVA injections, followed three times by OVA inhalation. Oral M50367 significantly inhibited the increase in airway reactivity to acetylcholine, together with the elevation of plasma IgE level and pulmonary eosinophilia, which were observed in vehicle-treated mice 1 day after the last inhalation. Moreover, M50367 treatment reduced IL-4 and IL-5 production and tended to enhance IFN-gamma production, not only by cultured splenocytes, but also in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid. These results suggest that M50367 has a modulating ability of Th1/Th2 balance to down-regulate Th2 response in the circulating system as well as at the sites of inflammation, and may be beneficial for the treatment of allergic disorders such as atopic asthma.  (+info)

The anti-inflammatory/antiallergic activity of a novel second-generation p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase inhibitor, SB 239063 [trans-1-(4-hydroxycyclohexyl)-4-(4-fluorophenyl)-5-(2-methoxypyridimidin-4-yl)imidazole], was investigated in vivo and in vitro. SB 239063 had an IC50 of 44 nM for inhibition of recombinant purified human p38α. In lipopolysaccharide-stimulated human peripheral blood monocytes, SB 239063 inhibited interleukin-1 and tumor necrosis factor-α production (IC50 values = 0.12 and 0.35 μM, respectively). A role for p38 kinase in cytokine-associated inflammation in the mouse was shown by p38 activation in the lung and inhibition of lipopolysaccharide-induced tumor necrosis factor-α production by SB 239063 (ED50 = 5.8 mg/kg p.o.). Antiallergic activity was demonstrated by essential abolition (∼93% inhibition) of inhaled ovalbumin (OA)-induced airway eosinophilia by SB 239063 (12 mg/kg p.o.), measured by bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) in OA-sensitized mice. In addition, p38 ...
Methods: Female Balb/c mice were sensitized with 200 μl 0.5% DNCB for three days. After sensitization, mice were challenged with 200 μl 1% DNCB on the same dorsal skin and also 20 μl 1% DNCB on each ear every 3 days, and orally administrated by gavage with DCE (0.6, 1.2 and 2.4 g/kg) daily from day 14 to day 29 for 16 consecutive days. At the end of experiment, the clinical scores for AD on the mice were calculated to evaluate the therapeutic effect of DCE; and serum, ears and dorsal skin of the mice were collected for mechanistic study. The anti-allergic activity of DCE was also evaluated using antigen-induced RBL-2H3 cell line. The release of selected cytokines, chemokines and β-hexosaminidase was measured to determine the anti-allergic activity of DCE. In addition, intracellular Ca2+ level, MAPKs and Lyn phosphorylations were further investigated to reveal its anti-allergic molecular mechanisms ...

The anti-allergy drug FPL 52757 (Fisons Ltd. ,) 6,8-diethyl-5-hydroxy-4-oxo-4H-1-benzopyran-2-carboxylic acid produced mild and reversible hepatotoxicity in some patients during clinical trials. The purpose of this work was to elucidate the mechanism by which FPL 52757 caused hepato-toxicity. However, since further humans could not be tested the work is limited to animal models. Toxicity studies showed that the beagle dog was the only animal species of ten tested which was readily susceptible to the hepatotoxic effect of the compound. In this project hepatotoxicity could not be demonstrated in ferrets or rats in special studies designed to reduce resistance to drug-induced hepatotoxicity. Similarly, hepatic microsomal enzyme induction in dogs by pretreatment with phenobarbitone and protection against cytotoxicity by pretreatment with methionine provided no evidence for involvement of a reactive metabolite in the hepatoxicity. Work by Fisons and additional studies in this project showed that the ...

Allergic disease decreases the daily quality of life of many people, and can increase the number of working days lost owing to sick leave. Associated symptoms with allergic disease depend on the origin of the disease, and can either be allergic, non-allergic and purulent, or can cause rhinitis as a result of a common cold. Treatment depends on the origin of the rhinitis. However, an antihistamine is indicated in most instances. Combination treatment includes sympathomimetic drugs (either local or systemic) and corticosteroid medication (when indicated, and in most instances, used locally). The article provides an overview of the nature and the management of allergic disease and the histamine 1 antihistamines.
A variety of anti-allergy medications are generally administered. ACEI edema appears to be an allergic reaction, but it is not mediated by mast cell degranulation; therefore, the efficacy of usually effective anti-allergy drugs such as epinephrine, antihistamines, and corticosteroids is unlikely and remains unproven. No randomized controlled blinded studies have compared these medications, probably because most physicians quickly give all three. The edema generally lasts 24-72 hours and spontaneously subsides if the ACEI is halted. Standard anti-allergy medications have not been noted to be harmful, but no current evidence recommends for or against using any of them to treat ACEI angioedema.. Angioedema of the upper airway and larynx can be life-threatening. It is an ominous finding indicative of a severe process, and often requires ICU admission. The authors suggest the early use of fiber optic examination to determine the presence and extent of laryngeal involvement, and note that no patient ...

Allergies, also known as allergic diseases, are a number of conditions caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system to something in the environment that usually causes little or no problems to most people. These diseases include hay fever, food allergies, atopic dermatitis, allergic asthma and anaphylaxis. Symptoms may include red eyes, an itchy rash, sneezing and a runny nose, shortness of breath or swelling. Food intolerances and food poisoning are separate conditions.
While an anti-allergic effect of Chaga mushroom (Inonotus obliquus) has been indicated, its therapeutic effect on allergy and immunoregulatory mechanisms and chemical constituents directly responsible for that are hardly known. We examined the effect of 70% ethanol extract of Chaga mushroom (EE) and its dichloromethane (DF) and aqueous (AF) fractions using a mouse model of chicken ovalbumin (cOVA)-induced food allergy, and found that only EE and DF ameliorated allergy symptoms to a significant extent. The in vivo mast cell-stabilizing activity was also found only in EE and DF whereas the activities to suppress Th2 and Th17 immune responses and cOVA-specific IgE production in the small intestine were observed in all three treatment regimens, implying that inhibition of the mast cell function by lipophilic compounds was vital for the therapeutic effect ...

Title:Anti-inflammatory and Anti-Allergic Properties of Donkey's and Goat's Milk. VOLUME: 14 ISSUE: 1. Author(s):Felicita Jirillo and Thea Magrone. Affiliation:University of Bari, Policlinico, Piazza G. Cesare, 11-70124, Bari, Italy.. Keywords:Allergy, cow, donkey, elderly, goat, microbiota, milk.. Abstract:Nowadays, donkeys and goats milk consumption has been reevaluated for its potential benefits to human health. For example, in infants with intolerance to cows milk, donkeys milk represents a good alternative due to its chemical characteristics similar to those of human milk. On the other hand, goats milk in virtue of its higher content in short chain, medium chain, mono and polyunsaturated fatty acids than that of cows milk, is more digestible than the bovine counterpart. From an immunological point of view, donkeys milk is able to induce release of inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines from normal human peripheral blood lymphomononuclear cells, thus maintaining a ...
Probiotic bacteria exert positive effects on human health. Among a wide range of health beneficial effects, the anti-allergic effect is an important one. One indication of allergic reaction is the increase in IgE level in our body. The mechanism initialized by probiotic bacteria leads to the decrease of IgE level that ultimately inhibits the allergic reactions. The present study is aimed to screen anti-allergic effect of native probiotics isolated from nectar. The probiotic bacteria were isolated from the nectar sample collected from Rangpur district of Bangladesh. The isolated probiotic bacteria were then subjected to morphological and biochemical tests. These morphological and biochemical tests allowed us to ensure that the isolated bacteria were the probiotic type. Then animal trial was conducted using these probiotic isolates. In the study, mice were used as the animal model. At the end of the trial, the blood samples isolated from different mice groups were analyzed. It has been found that, ...

KIOM-MA128, a novel herbal medicine, has been reported to exert some beneficial effects on various biological events, such as atopic dermatitis, inflammation and cancer. The aim of this study is to investigate how KIOM-MA128 regulates the allergic response. We measured the activity of β-hexosaminidase and the levels of allergic mediators in the conditioned media of antigen/IgE (Ag/IgE)-activated RBL-2H3 mast cells. We examined the levels of proteins associated with both the FcεRI and arachidonate cascades. Finally, we established the passive cutaneous anaphylaxis (PCA) model in mice to confirm the anti-allergic effects of KIOM-MA128 in vivo. KIOM-MA128 dose-dependently inhibited degranulation and the production of the allergic mediators described above, with no significant cytotoxicity. In the arachidonate cascade, KIOM-MA128 significantly reduced both cytosolic phospholipase A2 (cPLA2) phosphorylation and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) expression. Moreover, in the FcεRI cascade, KIOM-MA128 not only

Quercetin is a naturally occuring flavonoid. Quercetin has antioxidant, antiviral and anti-allergy effects. The antioxidant effect is attributed to the cathechol-B-ring and the location of the hydroxyl substitutions. Quercetin has demonstrated activity against some viruses. This is attributed to quercetins ability to reduce the infectivity of viruses and blocking viral replication. Quercetin has also been shown to have a positive effect on the human immune system. Possibly by increasing neutrophil chemotaxis, macrophage phagocytosis, natural killer cell lytic activity, and mitogen-stimulated lymphocyte proliferation. Quercetin has also been shown to have anti-allergy effects attributed to the fact that it may affect mast cell proliferation and secretory granule development.. ...

NaturalNews) Spirulina is considered one of natures most perfect foods because it performs such a broad spectrum of activities in the body. Its nutritional profile shows it can replace many more expensive supplements, and its research profile reveals its dedication to promoting good health.

What is Cortisol?. Cortisol is a steroid and a stress hormone. Production of cortisol is stimulated when stress is triggered. Cortisol plays an important role in the different metabolic processes in the body. Through its increased distribution in stress situations, it is able to provide energy by consuming sugar, fat and protein reserves. By immune processes cortisol also helps with its anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic effect, and has an important function in maintaining the health of the body.. Excessively low cortisol levels. It is well known that chronic stress is unhealthy - and stress is in turn the most important impulse that causes the increase of the distribution of cortisol. If the cortisol levels are too high, symptoms can include immunodeficiencies, depression, physical exhaustion, metabolic disorders, diabetes, obesity and sleeping disorders. Excessively high cortisol levels can indeed cause unpleasant symptoms.. Just the same, excessively low cortisol levels can interfere with ...
The risk of hyponatremia is not particularly high. Beware more of dehydration than hyponatremia. Nevertheless, you should not drink constantly. Its a good idea to have a drink at the pace of the drink points on the marathon route.. If a beginner runs the marathon very slowly, there is less heat in the body and less fluid is consumed. If you always drink a couple of cups at resting places and then drink some extra of your own drinks just in case, you may have too much fluid load.. When sweating on a hot day, also non-fitness enthusiasts should take care of hydration properly. And beware, you need to be careful with alcohol, as it drains your body.. Excess weight and several drugs may increase the symptoms of heat. These include, for example, anti-allergic drugs, beta-blockers, antidotes, and de-icing agents. Avoid taking any drugs like aspirin, ibuprofen and naproxen (NSAIDS) before or during a race if at all possible. These drugs increase the risk for exercise-associated hyponatremia and acute ...

Consultant Immunologist at Epsom and St Helier, Dr Grant Hayman said: The symptoms of hay fever can be unpleasant, but are quite common. There are a number of things you can do to help lessen the symptoms, such as wearing wraparound glasses to keep pollen out of your eyes, drying bed linen indoors during the pollen season and keeping the windows closed if at all possible.. If you are feeling very uncomfortable then I would recommend speaking to your pharmacist. They can give advice and suggest the best treatments, like antihistamine tablets, anti-allergy eye drops and/or steroid nasal sprays. If your symptoms get worse or do not get better after taking medication from your local pharmacist, get in touch with your GP..

As an active athlete, I had breathing problems, i.e. inadequate nasal airflow, on exercise in particular. This in turn led to frequent and deliberate blowing my nose and headache; I had a feeling of reduced airflow. I tried all the nasal hygiene products available and anti-allergy treatments, without success. The more so, my condition worsened from year to year. Then I visited Klapan Polyclinic at mid-August 2009 and was operated on within 2 weeks. I am very grateful to Professor Klapan and his surgical team, nurses in particular, for all their kindness, cordiality and assistance. The best of all, however, is the feeling that now, after the surgery, all my problems have vanished and I can normally breathe on both nostrils. The difference is most pronounced during my high-exercise trainings, when my nose works even better. In a word, the service offered to me by Klapan Polyclinic has substantially changed my life and I thank them all from the bottom of my heart, bless them!. R. I., pupil, born ...
