He worked as Assistant/Adjunct in Dpt of Pharmacology (1966-1975), Dpt of Pediatric Nephrology (1975-1977), the Associate Professor, Full Professor and Chief in Dpt of Pediatrics, J. Korczak Memorial Children’s Hospital in Wroclaw (1978-2002), and then in the Faculty of Dentistry, and as the Chair and Head of the Dpt of Social Pediatrics, Faculty of Health Sciences, Wroclaw Medical University (2002-2011). He received the Senior Fulbright-Hays Program award and worked in Dpt of Pediatrics, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA (1973-175; director dr Albert W.

He published 65 peer-reviewed papers as the only or first author, and solved several important scientific/clinical puzzles, such as for example: the peculiar disposition of drugs in cystic fibrosis patients, the dangerous diuretic tienilic acid-coumarin derivatives interaction, the aquarium fish food proteins as the triggering agents in development of autoimmune hepatitis, the beneficial effect of hydrocortisone plus epsilon-aminocaproic acid on disappearance rate of cutaneous vasculitis and fibrinolysis, the possible accumulation of cimetidine after multiple oral doses, the need for calculation of plasma elimination half-life of drugs only after reaching steady-state concentration, and an important role of viral infections in inhibition of xenobiotic metabolizing enzymes leading to development of autoimmune hepatitis. He is serving as an editorial member of the World J Clin Pediatrics (China), Int J Neurology Res (Hong Kong), Archives of Clinical Hypertension (India), International Journal of Autoimmune Disorders & Therapy (India). SRL Pediatrics & Neonatal Care (USA). Recently, Dr Prandota et al found the increased seroprevalence of chronic toxoplasmosis in autistic children [Int J Neurol Res, 2015,1(3), 102-122].
