The case of a 46-year-old women with well-differentiated adenocarcinoma of the female prostate (Skene's paraurethral glands and ducts) with inguinal metastases is reported. Besides adenocarcinomatous structures, also more solid parts of the tumor and anaplastic regions with dark cells were found on histological examination. Clear cancerous cells were(More)
Immune functions were examined in male rats following 28 day oral administration of formaldehyde by gastric tube at dose levels of 0, 20, 40, and 80 mg/kg. Routine parameters examined included hematology, clinical chemistry, and body, thymus, kidney, and liver weights. In addition, cellularity of spleen and lymph nodes, histology of spleen, thymus, lymph(More)
cis-(-)-2,3,4,4a,5,9b-Hexahydro-2,8-dimethyl-1H-pyrido-[4,3-b]indole dipalmitate (stobadin dipalmitate; in the following briefly called STB) a new prospective cardioprotective drug, was evaluated for effects on fertility, general reproductive performance, prenatal and peri-postnatal development in the rat. Doses of 5, 15 and 50 mg/kg/d were administered(More)
Various mechanisms are involved in the process of ethanol-induced tissue impairment. Oxidative stress and its effects are among the most important. We compared the effects of antioxidant vitamins (vitamin C and E in combination) and steroids (testosterone and nandrolone separately) on the toxicity of ethanol in rats. Animals (male Wistar rats, n = 48) were(More)
OBJECTIVE Tissue iron plays an important role in the development of certain diseases. Although it is one of biogenic elements, its excess induces the reactive oxygen species (ROS) formation. The aim of the present work is to examine the protection against free or loosely bound iron from the view of morphology and chemical composition of iron-rich complexes(More)
The role of biological membranes as a target in biological radiation damage is still unclear. Recently much attention has been paid to the dynamic behaviour of the cell membrane. Maxwell displacement current technique (MDC) provides new possibility of conformation study of the membrane models. Oxidative stress can impair macromolecules in the cell on a(More)
A major problem in the morphometric evaluation of human spleen is the simple but reliable determination of the border between T-cell and B-cell dependent areas, and other structures of the spleen. It was investigated whether cryostat sections of frozen surgical specimens of the human spleen and sections of paraffin-embedded specimens could be used for this(More)
The morphological relationship of chondroitin sulphates A, B, and C, collagen types I-IV and fibronectin in the wall of venous sinuses of the red pulp in human spleen has not been a focus of interest among morphologists. Regarding the hypothesis that the structure of the spleen lends it the function of a blood filter the substances described in our study(More)
The knowledge on the functional structure of the spleen is gained from the analysis of diseases, and immunological studies. Significant information is gained from model tests and isolated cells. The latter is advantageous in coincidence with the studies of intercellular relations. The main function of the spleen resides in "purification" of the blood. The(More)
