High-risk human papillomavirus (HPV) types cause cervical lesions of varying severity, ranging from transient productive infections to high-grade neoplasia. Disease stratification requires the examination of lesional pathology, and possibly also the detection of biomarkers. P16(INK4a) and MCM are established surrogates of high-risk HPV E6/E7 activity, and(More)
Grading cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) determines clinical management of women after abnormal cytology with potential for overdiagnosis and overtreatment. We studied a novel biomarker of human papillomavirus (HPV) life-cycle completion (panHPVE4), in combination with the minichromosome maintenance (MCM) protein cell-cycle marker and the p16INK4a(More)
BACKGROUND Insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) in concert with insulin-like binding protein 3 (IGFBP-3), insulin-like binding protein 2 (IGFBP-2), human growth hormone (GH) and P53 protein is involved in autocrine/paracrine growth signaling pathways as an adaptive response to environmental stimuli. OBJECTIVE The study evaluated the local secretion of(More)
BACKGROUND Breast cancer is the most common malignancy in women in the U.S. and Europe. In the early stages of the disease, women are treated surgically, which is supplemented with hormonal therapy, immuno-, chemo- or radiotherapy. Postoperative qualification for further treatment is based on clinical stage, the pathology of the tumor and classic prognostic(More)
OBJECTIVE Verify that resistance to aspirin may have an impact on pregnancy and neonatal outcome. METHODS We enrolled 43 pregnant women, aged 30.7 ± 4.0 years regularly taking 75 mg of aspirin daily and 32 (aged 30.8 ± 4 years) pregnant women not receiving aspirin who served as control group. Laboratory tests were performed at 18 to 22 weeks of gestation,(More)
The local renin-angiotensin system (RAS) in the placenta plays a very important role in placental development. It is well known that during normal pregnancy most of the circulating and local RAS components are over-expressed and any disruption of this new balance may cause pregnancy complications. The aim of this study was to assess the metabolism of Ang I(More)
BACKGROUND This study was designed to evaluate maternal levels of leptin and interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) in pregnancy complicated with hypertension and to assess the role of cytokines in predicting the risk of cesarean section. MATERIAL/METHODS This was a cohort study with a prospective follow-up. After proportional sampling procedure, the study included(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to compare the immunohistochemical expression of vascular endothelial growth factors VEGF-C and D, as well as the expression of VEGFR-3 in VIN and vulvar invasive cancer and to compare the density of lymphatic marker D2-40 antibody in both groups, and to compare them with different clinicopathologic features.

OBJECTIVES Premature ovarian failure (POF) is a consequence of gonadotoxic chemoradiotherapy given in antyneoplasia treatment. In young women it will correlate with menopausal symptoms which tend to appear due to depleted ovarian follicle reserve. DESIGN It was a case series study that included women 18-50 years old who were treated for malignancy with(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the influence of low and normal endogenous estradiol concentration on circulating hGH, IGF-I and IGFBP-3 levels as well as on mutual correlations of these parameters. PATIENTS 45 women (age 30.7 ± 9.0 years, BMI 25.7 ± 8.0) divided into group A - 15 hypoestrogenic women and group B - 30 normoestrogenic controls. Neither of the women(More)
