UNLABELLED Malnutrition, delayed growth and puberty are commonly observed in children suffering from cystic fibrosis. The aim of this study was to assess the age of menarche in girls with CF using status quo analysis. The relationship between types of CFTR mutations and onset of the first menstruation was also evaluated. Material was based on somatic data(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the ultrastructure of pinealocytes and plasma melatonin concentrations in Fischer rats bearing an advanced (14th) passage 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene-induced mammary tumor. Quantitative ultrastructural analysis of the cell size and relative volumes of various cell organelles as well as the number of(More)
OBJECTIVES Superior cervical ganglia are of crucial importance in regulating the secretion of the pineal hormone melatonin. Changes in pineal morphology have been observed in many mammalian species after sympathectomy. Therefore, we decided to investigate the ultrastructure of Djungarian hamster pinealocytes following superior cervical ganglionectomy. (More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To evaluate structural and ultrastructural abnormalities of the levator palpebrae superioris (LPS) complex in patients with congenital blepharoptosis. PATIENTS AND METHODS Samples of the LPS complex were obtained from patients operated on for congenital blepharoptosis between 2000 and 2001 and studied under light microscopy (15(More)
Poland has the second worst pedestrian fatality rate in the European Union. In the years 2007-2012, 9101 pedestrians were killed and 71328 injured on Polish roads. Almost 30% of pedestrian injury accidents took place at unsignalized zebra crosswalks. Based on police accident database, the worst problem in terms of numbers of fatalities occurs in built-up(More)
OBJECTIVE In patients with obesity and type 2 diabetes, the changes in insulin resistance are associated with the changes in expression of genes involved in nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) activation in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs). As such studies have never been carried out in patients with gestational diabetes (GDM), in this study, we evaluated(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to evaluate beta-cell function and insulin resistance in relation to the occurrence of anti-islet antibodies in first degree relatives of patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D). MATERIAL AND METHODS The group studied consisted of 90 relatives and 60 healthy individuals without a family history of diabetes. An(More)
BACKGROUND We analyzed the relationship between fasting plasma glucose (FPG), the presence of autoantibodies, first phase of insulin secretion and insulin resistance in the first degree relatives of patients with type 1 diabetes. MATERIALS AND METHODS The group studied consisted of 90 healthy relatives, divided into two groups: "high-normal" FPG group(More)
BACKGROUND Malnutrition and delayed growth are commonly seen in children with cystic fibrosis and are indicators of poor prognosis. Understanding the factors that affect growth and nutritional status may improve care, treatment and longevity. OBJECTIVES To determine how nutritional status, as estimated using anthropometric measurements, in children with(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to assess differences in circulating osteocalcin (OC) and osteoprotegerin (OPG), as well as in their expression in subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT), visceral adipose tissue (VAT) and placental tissue obtained from patients with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and normal glucose tolerance (NGT).
