BACKGROUND It has been reported that malignancy is often accompanied by hematological alterations and that such alterations may correlate with poor prognosis. It has also been demonstrated that several cytokines may be synthesized by many malignant tumors and that elevated serum levels of some cytokines are associated with changes in blood cell counts in(More)
The aim of this study was to exploit the potential clinical use of circulating cytokine measurements in colorectal cancer (CRC) patients. The levels of cytokines and cytokine receptors were assessed by ELISA in the sera of 50 healthy volunteers and 157 patients with previously untreated CRC and then related to clinicopathological features and prognosis.

Blood serum cytokines: TNFalpha, IL-1ra, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10 as well as CRP were investigated in patients with colorectal cancer, prior treatment and 1, 10 and 42 days after surgery. There was an increase of the levels of CRP, IL-6 and IL-10 in most patients 24 hours after surgery. The levels of IL-1ra were elevated in patients in stage C and in several(More)
We describe an infection with Ureaplasma urealyticum causing rapid loosening of a cemented total hip arthroplasty. When reviewing the literature we found that no such case has been reported previously. Taking intraoperative cultures for U urealyticum during revision surgery is not a standard procedure. In cases with rapid, presumed aseptic, loosening of a(More)
Total hip arthroplasty is a common and important treatment for osteoarthritis patients. Long-term cardiovascular effects elicited by osteoarthritis or the implant itself remain unknown. The purpose of the present study was to determine if there is an increased risk of late cardiovascular mortality and morbidity after total hip arthroplasty surgery.A(More)
Blood serum cytokines: TNFα, IL-lra, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10 as well as CRP were investigated in patients with colorectal cancer, prior treatment and 1,10 and 42 days after surgery. There was an increase of the levels of CRP, IL-6 and IL-10 in most patients 24 hours after surgery. The levels of IL-1ra were elevated in patients in stage C and in several patients(More)
BACKGROUND Wear-induced osteolysis is the main factor in reducing the longevity of total hip arthroplasty (THA). The transmembrane Receptor Activator of Nuclear Factor κ B (RANK) and its corresponding ligand RANKL is an important regulator of osteoclast activity and bone resorption and is associated with osteolysis around implant. Inhibiting RANKL with(More)
INTRODUCTION In vitro, Vitamin-E-diffused, highly cross-linked polyethylene (PE) has been shown to have superior wear resistance and improved mechanical properties when compared to those of standard highly cross-linked PE liners used in total hip arthroplasty (THA). The aim of the study is to evaluate the safety of a new cemented acetabular cup with(More)
Attempts to obtain burn toxin from animal and human skin are reported. Mouse skin was burned with a metal stamp by the method of Allgöwer. The human and the skin of various experimental animals was scalded in NaCl solution by the method of Rosenthal. Using the latter method it was possible to obtain the so-called "crude burn toxin" from the human skin. It(More)
