PURPOSE Cryoglobulinemic glomerulonephritis (CGGN) is a type of membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis (MPGN) that develops in patients with systemic cryoglobulinemia. To date the exact pathogenesis of CGGN remains unclear. It has been suggested that macrophages may be significant contributors to the glomerular injury in this disease. In our study we(More)
Spore-forming bacteria are a class of microorganisms that possess the ability to survive in extreme environmental conditions. Morphological features of spores assure their resistance to stress factors such as high temperature, radiation, disinfectants, and drying. Consequently, spore elimination in industrial and medical environments is very challenging.(More)
INTRODUCTION Dense deposit disease (DDD) is a rare renal disease related to the dysregulation of the alternative pathway of the complement cascade, caused by several factors including the presence of an autoantibody to C3 nephritic factor, mutations in factor H and autoantibodies to this protein. DDD is characterized by C3 accumulation with absent or scanty(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate the total blood platelets count, fraction of phagocytizing thrombocytes (PhT%), and phagocytic index of thrombocytes (PhIT) in gastric cancer considering the stage of the disease, and perioperative immunonutrition support. METHODS Our study included 44 patients operated for gastric cancer divided into 2 groups(More)
PURPOSE Cadmium toxicity in the exposure of the general, professional and cigarette smoking populations has been well known. From the dental point of view, it is important to find out whether and how separate and joint exposures to cadmium and zinc affect the structure and function of the submandibular gland, which is the major saliva-releasing gland.(More)
Not only bile but also chronic cholecystitis may play a role in gallbladder carcinogenesis. Numerous studies have revealed a close correlation between chronic inflammation and neoplasia. The experiments were conducted on paraffin sections, obtained from 377 surgically resected gallbladders with chronic cholecystitis. Immunohistochemical reaction was(More)
The aim of the study was to examine the process of sciatic nerve regeneration and changes in the dorsal root ganglia (from which sensory fibres of the sciatic nerve extend) in animals intoxicated with ethanol. The experiment used 20 rats, divided into two groups: control and treated. The treated animals were intragastrically given 2g/kg b.w. of ethanol in(More)
The aim of the study was to examine morphological changes in the spinal dorsal ganglia (from which sensory fibres of the sciatic nerve extend) in animals intoxicated with ethanol, in which the sciatic nerve was transected and then sutured. By means of morphometric methods using a computer system of picture analysis and in ultrastructural examinations it was(More)
The effect of lead on ultrastructure of supraoptic and paraventricular neurons was studied in rats allowed to drink lead acetate solution instead of water during 6 weeks. Generally, the neurosecretory neurons appeared to be sensitive to lead dependently on its concentrations, but the ultrastructural patterns of the individual neurons varied from cell to(More)
Ultrastructure of neurohypophysis was examined in rats allowed to drink for 6 weeks only solution of lead acetate. It was found the increased number of neurosecretory granules in axonal terminals, the signs of granulolysis in Herring bodies and the presence of axonal terminals with atypical, heterogeneous contents. The possible mechanisms of alterations(More)
