In this study, the levels of ischemia-modified albumin (IMA) in pediatric oncology patients with soft tissue sarcomas (STSs) and neuroblastoma (NB) were analyzed. To date, there have been no studies concerning IMA in these groups of patients. Ninety-nine children with STSs and NB were analyzed from 2006 to 2009, and 30 healthy children were also enrolled in(More)
BACKGROUND Antioxidant systems in cells maintain the proper homeostasis of reactive oxygen species, which at high concentrations can induce carcinogenesis. The aim of this study was to evaluate the serum levels of ischemia-modified albumin (IMA), erythrocyte superoxide dismutase (SOD), and glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) as markers for prognosis in children(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study was to determine the level of adiposity and obesity in Polish adolescents and compare the results with earlier studies conducted in this population as well as those carried out in other populations. METHODS The study group consisted of 456 boys and 514 girls aged 14-18 years living in Cracow chosen(More)
