This report describes a chondromyxoid fibroma of the second metacarpal bone in a 32-year-old female patient. Chondromyxoid fibroma is a rare, benign, slow-growing bone tumor of cartilaginous origin. Tumor has a high recurrance rate. Our aim was to show successful treatment of a metacarpal chondromyxoid fibroma with wide resection and implantation of finger(More)
Circadian timing system includes an input pathway transmitting environmental signals to a core oscillator that generates circadian signals responsible for the peripheral physiological or behavioural events. Circadian 24-h rhythms regulate diverse physiologic processes. Deregulation of these rhythms is associated with a number of pathogenic conditions(More)
Dupuytren's disease predominantly occurs among Europeans, with higher reported prevalence in Northern than in Mediterranean European countries. We evaluated the recurrence and extension rates among Caucasian patients from Primorsko-goranska County in Croatia who underwent partial fasciectomy as treatment for Dupuytren's disease. Furthermore, we investigated(More)
HINTERGRUND: 1,2 % aller Frakturen entfallen auf Humerusschaftfrakturen, die unter etwas jüngeren Altersgruppen verzeichnet werden. Stolpern, Abstürze oder Verkehrsunfälle zählen zu den Ursachen, obwohl diese Frakturen auch pathologisch bedingt sein können. Um die Frage zu klären, welche von den zwei chirurgischen Behandlungen, die in unserer Abteilung für(More)
Although functional genomics methods offer new viewpoint on molecular processes involved in particular pathological state, these methods, in particular proteomics, are still under-represented in Dupuytren's contracture research. However, several recent papers based on functional genomics technologies represent a breakthrough in studying Dupuytren's(More)
OBJECTIVES Inflammation is an underlying mechanism behind fibrotic processes and differentiation of cells into myofibroblasts. Presented study therefore provides new data on activation of autoimmune and inflammatory immune response genes that accompany activation of p38 and cell differentiation in primary cells derived from Dupuytren's disease (DD)(More)
Psoriasis is a benign, chronic skin disease characterized by keratinocyte hyperproliferation and abnormal differentiation. Telomerase is an enzyme-reverse transcriptase that protects chromosomes from degradation by stabilizing telomere length. Recent studies suggest that telomerase activity (TA) may be responsible in part for some of nonmalignant(More)
Considering that nodular melanoma (NM) has the potential to show an early distant metastasis, there is an urgent need for the discovery and evaluation of new diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers. We aimed to investigate the protein expression of membrane and nuclear epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), cyclin D1, and the corresponding gene status in NM(More)
Global heating and increased solar ultraviolet irradiance have caused an increase in number of many diseases, particularly skin malignant diseases. Aim of this study was to investigate the influence of climate changes on the health of the population of the Primorsko-goranska and Istria Counties. We gathered and analyzed data about the frequency of skin(More)
Dupuytren's disease (DD) is a fibroproliferative disorder, the cure for which is still limited to surgical excision of the affected fascia, often leading to high recurrence rates. Due to this fact, non-surgical treatments are being investigated, among them those targeting molecular processes of proliferation and differentiation in Dupuytren's cell cultures.(More)
