We determined collagen synthetic rates and utilization of key amino acid precursors of collagen in slices of wedge liver biopsy specimens obtained at required surgery from 9 patients with hepatosplenic schistosomiasis and from 4 control patients. The liver specimens from the patients with schistosomiasis showed advanced fibrosis, with histologic evidence of(More)
AIM Prostate cancer (PCa) is the second most common cancers in men worldwide. Its incidence can be influenced by several risk factors including genetic susceptibility. Therefore the search for the expression of a certain gene (ERG) and its rearrangement could give us clues for proper identification of PCa. And the study of ERG expression and its comparison(More)
BACKGROUND Bladder cancer represents the fifth most common malignancy worldwide and a major cause of cancer-related morbidity and death. Incidence and mortality rates have remained relatively constant over the past four decades. Urothelial bladder cancers have identified multiple risk factors. AIM We aimed at evaluating the expression of the FGFR3 protein(More)
The use of a microtechnique (modified nitrous acid extraction) to test samples from 150 school children and from patients with acute follicular tonsillitis has indicated that group A streptococci in the throat can be identified from tonsillar scrapings in 30 min. The results are comparable to the grouping results obtained by standard throat culture(More)
Immunological and epidemiological characteristics of M1T1 and M1T8 (T8, 25, Imp.19) group A streptococci isolated in Egypt have been described. Both strains possess a common M1 antigen. The M1T8 strains possess a second antigen which has the immunological and biological characteristics of M protein. The M1T1 strains do not possess this second M antigen.(More)
We evaluated the relationship between immunoregulatory and effector functions of monocytes in subjects with heavy S. mansoni infection (greater than 400 eggs/g of stool). Two main patterns were found. In seven individuals (mean 601 eggs/g), the depletion of adherent cells from peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) increased blastogenic responses to(More)
