Doxorubicin causes a chronic cardiomyopathy. Although the exact pathogenesis is unknown, recent animal data suggest that somatically acquired alterations of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and concomitant mitochondrial dysfunction play an important role in its onset. In this study, skeletal and myocardial muscles were examined from human autopsies. Compared to(More)
BACKGROUND H-ras and c-fos oncogenes interact in signalling pathways but their level and time course of expression during oral cancer development are unclear. The present study used an animal model for the simultaneous investigation of H-Ras and c-Fos expression in sequential stages of oral oncogenesis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Three experimental groups of(More)
Markers of cell proliferation (Ki-67 antigen) and apoptosis (Bax, Bcl-2) were studied in an experimental system of induced oral carcinogenesis in Syrian golden hamsters. Thirty-seven animals were divided into one control group and three experimental groups, which were treated with a carcinogen and sacrificed at 10, 14 and 19 weeks after treatment. The(More)
AIM To investigate atrophic parenchymal changes in ischemic liver conditions. DESIGN We studied 18 cases of hepatic lesions with atrophic changes due to altered blood flow (hepatic venous congestion n=15 including 4 cases with additional nodular regenerative hyperplasia-NRH, NRH n=1, and antiphospholipid syndrome with patchy parenchymal atrophy n=2).(More)
A 68-year-old man presented with a suppurating mass on his skull and a palpable mass on his right upper thoracic wall. Computed tomography revealed a round mass, 70 mm in diameter, invading the right pleural cavity, and a second tumor infiltrating the skull through the left parietal bone. Both masses were resected simultaneously. Histopathology showed that(More)
