The authors present the results of breast examinations in 201 female patients controlled by cytology and histology. Based on their results obtained by an AGA 680 type infrared thermography, their conclusion was that the method is primarily suitable for the examination of biological thermogenesis, one of the functional characteristics of tumours. Some T1(More)
To demonstrate the influence of exercise training on the lipoprotein cholesterol fractions (high-density lipoprotein (HDL), low-density lipoprotein (LDL), and very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol) in patients with coronary heart disease (CHD), 65 male patients were examined for cardiovascular function and lipid metabolism, before starting or(More)
The inhibition of K cell mediated haemolysis of anti-D-sensitized human red blood cells by unsensitized erythrocytes has been demonstrated. Inhibition of lysis was non-competitive in nature and influenced by the size and number of unsensitized cells. However, even in the presence of high inhibitor: target cell ratios (50:1) haemolysis, although reduced, was(More)
Between 1965 and 1987 the authors studied the survival of 169 patients (130 females, 39 males) suffering from follicular thyroid cancer. It is established that the factors favorably influencing the course of the disease are as follows: age below 40 years, female sex, tumor location inside the thyroid capsule. Radical surgery does not affect the survival,(More)
Non-T-cells from individuals sensitized against antigen D were found to lyze O,Rh-positive erythrocytes. The lytic effect was abolished by incubation of the effector cells at 37 degrees C for 30 min, and was reconstituted by addition of anti-D antibodies. These results suggested that sensitized donors have lymphocytes armed with specific antibodies in vivo.
One hundred and eleven previously untreated patients with extensive small cell lung cancer were included in a prospective randomized study with the aim to assess the efficacy and tolerance of high-dose epirubicin (120 mg/m2) in combination with either cyclophosphamide (800 mg/m2; arm 1) or cisplatin (60 mg/m2; arm 2). Ninety-six patients were evaluable for(More)
The role of sensitizing antibody in monocyte-mediated antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC) has been investigated using human erythrocyte target cells and hyperimmune anti-A and anti-B antisera. The influence of sensitizing antibody concentration on target cell selection by effector monocytes was measured using a cold target competition assay. It(More)
32 patients with different tumours were irradiated by 60Co gamma-rays. During therapy lasting for several weeks, changes in the content of immunoglobulin and of some other serum proteins, circulating immune complexes and plasma free hemoglobin were determined. Immunosuppression according to immunoglobulin content in serum was not produced by this type of(More)
