Solid papillary carcinoma, a special form of breast carcinoma with neuroendocrine differentiation, usually presents in women aged 60 years or more. (Koern 2010). According to our best knowledge, we present the second case of such a tumor in pregnant women.
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 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.

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)
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)

METHODS We enrolled 36 pregnant women (mean age 29 ± 4.8 years) and a control group of 10 non-pregnant women (mean age 25.9 ± 0.88 years). The examination was performed in the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd(More)
BACKGROUND Hypertension during pregnancy is a heterogeneous group of disorders with elevated blood pressure with or without proteinuria. The multiple researches are held on the subject of a genetic conditioning of preeclampsia and pregnancy induced hypertension. OBJECTIVES The study was designed to evaluate the impact of the single nucleotide polymorphism(More)
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)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this paper is to compare the effectiveness of use of alkaline phosphatase (ALP) and C-reactive protein (CRP) levels in marking and monitoring the risk of preterm delivery due to infection.
