Cyanobacteria and cyanotoxins in Polish freshwater bodies
It is concluded that Planktothrix, Aphanizomenon, Microcystis and Dolichospermum were dominant in the presence of cyanobacteria and cyanotoxins in fresh water bodies located in 5 provinces in Poland and the general pattern in geographical distribution was typical of other eutrophic waters in Europe.

Differentiation of pancreatobiliary cancer from benign biliary strictures using neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin.
It is concluded that measurement of biliary, but not serum NGAL, may differentiate malignant pancreatobiliary from benign biliary strictures, serving as a complementary biomarker for serum CA19-9. Expand
The biodegradation of microcystins in temperate freshwater bodies with previous cyanobacterial history.
The hypothesis that microcystin biodegradation is a common phenomenon in central European waters and that it may occur by a mechanism which is different from the one previously reported is confirmed, which implies the necessity to develop a more accurate methodology for screening bacteria with MC biodegrading ability.

Serum neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) correlates with clinical and endoscopic activity in ulcerative colitis but fails to predict activity in Crohn's disease.
It is concluded that serum NGAL level corresponds to clinical and endoscopic activity of UC and accurately predicts disease endoscopic remission in patients with complete endoscopic and histologic remission. Expand
A report of Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii and other cyanobacteria in the water reservoirs of power plants in Ukraine
The studied waters displayed no toxicity in human platelets in vitro, and further toxicological and ecological studies are necessary to evaluate the potential presence of cyanotoxin producers in Ukraine. Expand
Simultaneous liver mucinous cystic and intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms of the bile duct: a case report.
The case of a 56-year-old woman who presented with abdominal pain and jaundice due to the presence of a large hepatic multilocular cystic tumor associated with an intraductal tumor is reported. Expand
Temperature Effects Explain Continental Scale Distribution of Cyanobacterial Toxins
Direct and indirect effects of temperature were the main drivers of the spatial distribution in the toxins produced by the cyanobacterial community, the toxin concentrations and toxin quota, and a Toxin Diversity Index (TDI) increased with latitude, while it decreased with water stability. Expand
Antimicrobial resistance of Helicobacter pylori in Poland: a multicentre study.
The resistance of Helicobacter pylori to antimicrobials, known to be increasing in many countries, is an important factor compromising the efficacy of eradication therapy. Therefore, our study aimedExpand
