AIM OF THE STUDY This retrospective study attempts to evaluate the influence of serum vascular endothelial growth factor C (VEGF-C), microvessel density (MVD) and lymphatic vessel density (LMVD) on the result of tumour treatment in women with cervical cancer. MATERIAL AND METHODS The research was carried out in a group of 58 patients scheduled for(More)
PURPOSE OF INVESTIGATION Angiogenesis is important in the promotion and progression of malignancy. The formation of new blood vessels is coordinated by many factors, angiopoietins among others. Overexpression of angiopoietins has been observed in various tumors. The aim of the study was to evaluate plasma concentration of Ang-1, Ang-2 and Tie-2 in cervical(More)
Even when patients with nonsmall cell lung cancer undergo surgical resection at an early stage, recurrent disease often impairs the clinical outcome. There are numerous causes potentially responsible for a relapse of the disease, one of them being extensive angiogenesis. The balance of at least two systems, VEGF VEGFR and Ang Tie, regulates vessel(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Endoglin is a proliferation-associated antigen on endothelial cells and essential for angiogenesis. Soluble endoglin (s‑endoglin), formed by proteolytic cleavage of ectodomain of membrane receptor could be an indicator of tumor‑activated endothelium. The aim of present study was to analyze changes of s‑endoglin level in plasma of lung(More)
BACKGROUND One of the important proangiogenic factors involved in the growth of normal and neoplastic tissues is vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). AIM We hypothesized that serum VEGF concentration would differ between patients with metastatic and non-metastatic thyroid cancer, multinodular goiter, and healthy subjects. We also hypothesized that(More)
INTRODUCTION Angiogenesis, formation of a new blood vessel from the existing vascular network, is essential for tumor growth, progression and metastasis. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) has been identified to be one of the most important factors of angiogenesis. VEGF-C, a novel member of the family, is a relatively specific lymphangiogenic growth(More)
UNLABELLED Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is main angiogenic factor, which stimulates endothelial cells migration and proliferation. The extensive angiogenesis plays important role in tumor growth and metastasis. AIM OF THE STUDY Analysis of serum concentrations of vascular endothelial growth factor in patients with non-small cell lung cancer(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of hypothyroidism on oxidative modification of low density lipoprotein (LDL). MATERIAL AND METHODS 24 patients with overt hypothyroidism and 10 patients with mild hypothyroidism were enrolled to the study. The control group consisted of 24 healthy subjects with normal serum TSH. Plasma level(More)
UNLABELLED Matrix metalloproteinases are responsible for the proteolytic degradation of the basement membrane and extracellular matrix. Elevated expression levels of MMP-9 and MMP-2 have been associated with tumor invasion and metastasis. THE AIM OF THIS STUDY To determine serum concentrations of metalloproteinases 9 and 2 in non-small cell lung cancer(More)
