BACKGROUND This study sought to define the mechanism by which PPAR-γ ligands affect the course of experimentally induced colitis in rats. MATERIAL/METHODS Inflammation was induced in Wistar rats by a single rectal administration of 2,4,6,-trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid (TNBS). The antagonist of PPARγ antagonist, bisphenol A diglycidyl ether (BADGE), was(More)
Non-specific inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), including ulcerative colitis and Crohn`s disease, is a chronic noninfectious inflammatory disease whose incidence is increasingly high, especially in the developed countries. Effective methods of its treatment and prevention of recurrences are still under investigation. Amongst the options to control(More)
BACKGROUND Adenomyoepithelioma (AME) of the breast is a rare tumour of unpredictable clinical behaviour. Most of the tumours are benign with some giving local recurrences or distant metastases. CASE PRESENTATION We report a case of late lung metastases in a woman with a history of breast adenomyoepithelioma. Partial lobectomy was performed for lung(More)
Small cell carcinomas of the urinary bladder originating from the neuroendocrine cells are extremely rare. We present a case of a 76-year-old patient with small cell carcinoma of the urinary bladder. The patient had hematuria and cystoscopy revealed a tumor located in a urinary bladder diverticulum. Partial resection of the bladder wall with(More)
The role of adenosine A3 receptors and their distribution in the gastrointestinal tract have been widely investigated. Most of the reports discuss their role in intestinal inflammations. However, the role of adenosine A3 receptor agonist in pancreatitis has not been well established. The aim of this study is [corrected] to evaluate the effects of the(More)
Cyclosporine A is an immunosuppressive drug used after organ's transplantation. The adverse effects on such organs as kidney or liver may limit its use. Oxidative stress is proposed as one of the mechanisms of organs injury. The study was designed to elucidate CsA-induced changes in liver function, morphology, oxidative stress parameters, and mitochondria(More)
Erratum After the publication of the article [1], the authors realised it contained an error with the Methods section. The following paragraph should be deleted from the original article: Cell proliferation assay Proliferation was measured using Delfia cell proliferation kit (Perkin-Elmer, Waltham, MA, USA) according to manufacturer protocol.

PURPOSE The role of adenosine and its receptors in acute pancreatitis remains unelucidated. The aim was to evaluate the effects of the adenosine A2a receptor agonist and antagonist in the severe, taurocholate-induced experimental acute pancreatitis (EAP). MATERIAL AND METHODS The experiments were performed on 80 male Wistar rats, subdivided into 4 groups:(More)
Pathogenesis of endometrial cancer has been connected with alterations of microRNA expression and in particular miR-205 up-regulation was consistently reported in this carcinoma. Presented study aimed to investigate if inhibition of miR-205 expression using LNA-modified-nucleotide would attenuate endometrial cancer cells proliferation in vitro and in(More)
