BACKGROUND Deregulated c-Myc expression and alterations of c-myc oncogene have been reported to play an important role in breast cancer tumorigenesis. We examined the relationship between c-Myc protein level, amplification of c-myc oncogene and commonly used clinical and pathologic factors. METHODS The studies were conducted on 94 ductal and lobular(More)
In a previous small series of surgically treated non-small cell lung cancer patients (NSCLC), we found that higher apoptotic index (AI) negatively influenced survival (Dworakowska D, Jassem E, Jassem J, Karmolinski A, Dworakowski R, Wirth T, et al. Clinical significance of apoptotic index in non-small cell lung cancer: correlation with p53, mdm2, pRb and(More)
Searching for ways to improve the characterization of breast cancer we examined the relationship between the status of the FHIT gene transcript and amplification of c-myc and the c-erbB2 oncogene. Abnormal FHIT transcript was detected in 32 of 79 cancers examined. The presence of Fhit protein estimated by Western blots was evident only in cancers exhibiting(More)
The aim of the study was to investigate the relationship between the static thermography figure of merit DeltaT (the difference in mean values of skin area temperature for the burn wound area and the unaffected reference skin area) and a means of burn classification which would be most suitable for the choice of treatment. The work was an in vivo animal(More)
Europeans have a high incidence of colorectal cancer in comparison to Africans. Lack of detectable sequence adenoma-colorectal carcinoma in Africans may suggest the development of adenocarcinoma is de novo. The aim of this study is to assess colonic mucosal proliferative activity in various pathological conditions of diverse population groups. Materials(More)
AIMS The blue-dye staining method of sentinel lymph node identification in lung cancer patients has been scarcely reported. The study was designed to assess the sensitivity, accuracy and negative predictive value (NPV) of intraoperative sentinel lymph node mapping in patients with non-small cell lung cancer by means of staining with colloid or water(More)
OBJECTIVE The prognostic value of pRb and p53 altered expression in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) remains debatable. We assessed the occurrence of altered pRb and p53 protein expression, and the prognostic value of these assays considered as separate and combined variables in operable NSCLC. The study group included 195 NSCLC consecutive patients from(More)
OBJECTIVE Gaucher's disease is a rare autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disease. We describe a unique case of middle-ear involvement presenting with hearing loss. CASE REPORT A five-year-old boy with known Gaucher's disease presented with bilateral hearing impairment and conductive hearing loss on pure tone audiometry with flat tympanometry traces. (More)
Purpose: The aim of this study was to assess the prognostic relevance of apoptotic index (AI), considered alone or together with expression of several proteins controlling G1 check point (p53, mdm2, pRb and p21WAF1/CIP1) in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. Methods: Study group included 50 NSCLC patients who underwent curative pulmonary(More)
