AIM OF THE STUDY Metastases of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) into pleura disqualify a patient from surgery and present a bad prognostic index. The aim of the study was to find out whether washing out the pleural cavity in such cases and examining obtained washings for presence of cancer cells will help to detect early NSCLC metastases into pleura, and(More)
Bcl-2 antigen is a proto-oncogene responsible for the inhibition of the death of cells in the mechanism of apoptosis. The expression of bcl-2 antigen was analysed in liver bioptates obtained from patients with chronic hepatitis C. Thirty-five patients with advanced fibrosis (bridging fibrosis or cirrhosis) and various inflammatory activity were(More)
The authors estimated PCNA and P53 in subjects with laryngeal cancer in whom local or nodal recurrences were observed. The study included 54 patients from Upper Silesia in age 37-79 years (mean 57 +/- 8.8). The mean value of the PCNA index in subjects with local recurrence (LR) was 24.2% +/- 12.1 while in subjects without LR 22.1% +/- 9.4 (p > 0.05).(More)
Benign pleomorphic adenomas of the larynx are very rare. Review of the literature showed about 20 cases of this tumours. We present a case of benign mixed tumor located in the false vocal cord and coexisted with laryngomucocele. The tumor was removed by endoscopic laser resection. To our knowledge it is the second published in literature case of benign(More)
OBJECTIVES Abdominal wall endometriosis is usually a secondary process in scars after a cesarean section or appendectomy. Malignant transformation is an infrequent complication of endometriosis. The great majority of cases belong to adenocarcinoma. Only 21.3% of cases of malignant transformation of endometriosis occur at extragonadal pelvic sites, 4% of(More)
The problem of primary mixed neoplasms has been recently a subject of numerous research works trying to find out their pathogenetic mechanisms, early detection, clinical course and treatment opportunities. The authors present a rare case (fibrosarcoma and squamous carcinoma) in a 73-year-old man. The patient had a surgery (total laryngectomy) and(More)
The aim of the study was the analysis of the utility of nm 23 protein in prediction of cervical lymph node metastases in patients with laryngeal cancer. A preliminary study was performed in 35 patients with laryngeal cancer with cervical lymph node metastases, which were confirmed by histopathologist. The control group consisted of 30 patients with(More)

The authors present in the study actual knowledge of the pathogenesis of the chronic viral hepatitis type B. Dividing of the disease into stages with description immunologic reactions connected with morphological features of the liver is used. Three stages of the disease have been reported: replication, elimination and integration of HBV in the liver. It(More)
