Wilms' tumour (WT) and soft tissue sarcomas (SA) in children lack reliable biochemical markers. This study was carried out to determine the clinical significance of serum soluble interleukin-2 receptor alpha (sIL-2Ralpha) in the diagnostics and treatment monitoring of children with WT and SA. The study included 48 children: ten with WT, eight with SA and 30(More)
Atrial natriuretic factor administered in the large dose did not change glomerular filtration rate, but it was diuretic in low-sodium rats. In response to ANF, excretion of c-GMP was decreased in low-sodium rats in comparison with normal-sodium stimulated c-GMP accumulation in isolated glomeruli was more diminished in low- than normal sodium rats. These(More)
The aim of this study was to establish the corresponding heritability estimates were 0.54 for FPI and 0.66 for RIR. Adjusting for age, gender, contribution of genetic factors to the variance of plasma insulin concentration in healthy, and body mass index did not affect heritability estimates for either FPI or RIR. Our data indicate normotensive twins.(More)
Acylcarnitines are by-products of fatty acid, pyruvate and some xenobiotics metabolism excreted in urine. We compare the renal handling of free and acylcarnitine in a group of 15 healthy children in relation to sodium and urea excretion and to sodium fractional tubular reabsorption (FTR%) and fractional excretion (FE%). Urea and sodium were determined by(More)
The aim of this study was to establish the contribution of genetic factors to the variance of plasma insulin concentration in healthy, normotensive twins. Seventeen pairs of monozygotic (MZ) and 17 pairs of dizygotic (DZ) twins were investigated. The test of genetic variance revealed a significantly larger within-pair variance of fasting plasma insulin(More)
UNLABELLED The purpose of the study was to evaluate prevalence of COPD in sea-port workers who has been employed with handling phosphoric compounds, sulphur compounds and grain. Smoking habits has been also analysed. Study group consists of 238 persons working in Gdańsk sea-port. Protocol of the study has included: medical history, detailed description of(More)
