We report a case of fetal endocarditis coexisting with a congenital heart defect: a common atrium (left atrial isomerism) with complete congenital heart block. The case was studied by echocardiography from 32 to 39 weeks of gestation. A postmortem examination was carried out a few hours after Cesarean section. The autopsy, histopathological and(More)
Ficolins are serum pattern recognition molecules. They have opsonic properties and are able to activate complement via the lectin pathway. This paper reports investigations concerning ficolin-2 and ficolin-3 in ovarian cancer (OC). Their serum levels, single nucleotide polymorphisms of the corresponding FCN2 and FCN3 genes and specific mRNA expression in(More)
Mannose-Binding Lectin (MBL) is a serum pattern recognition molecule, able to activate complement in association with MASP proteases. Serum levels of MBL and MASP-2, activities of MBL–MASP complexes, single nucleotide polymorphisms of the MBL2 and MASP2 genes and/or their specific mRNA expression in ovarian sections were investigated in 128 patients(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop our own procedures, allowing for a quick evaluation of glomerular basement membrane (GBM) thickness and to present a statistical classification of thin basement membrane disease (TBMD), minimal change disease (MCD), and IgA nephropathy (IgAN) cases. STUDY DESIGN Measurements were carried out with the aid of the original software for(More)
In this study the effect of single and multiple doses of bismuth on the metabolism and excretion of endogenous metals (Cu, Zn) was investigated. Wistar rats were administered bismuth chloride subcutaneously (1 x 3 mg Bi/kg or 7 x 3 mg Bi/kg). Rats were sacrificed at different time periods after bismuth injections. The levels of Cu and Zn were determined in(More)
