INTRODUCTION Cancer antigen 125 (CA-125), known as a biomarker for women genital tract malignancies, could be also useful in detecting and monitoring endometriosis. The aim of this study was to evaluate CA-125 in serum and peritoneal fluid (PF) as an indicator of endometriosis. MATERIAL AND METHODS Fifty-six patients admitted to the First Department of(More)
INTRODUCTION There is a need to assess the value of the novel potentially useful biomarkers in ovarian tumors. The aim of study was to assess the value of sAgNOR analysis in ovarian serous epithelial tumors. MATERIAL AND METHODS The analysis was performed in ovaries from 113 patients treated operatively due to serous ovarian tumors (30 adenomas, 14(More)
OBJECTIVE to evaluate the relationship between AgNORs count as well as tumor grade and the effect of chemotherapy in serous ovarian cancer. MATERIAL AND METHODS 39 women who underwent surgical procedure and then chemotherapy due to serous ovarian cancer were included into the study. In cancer cells the mean number of AgNORs per nucleus (mAgNOR) and the(More)
INTRODUCTION The value of argyrophilic nucleolar organizer regions (AgNORs) to predict survival in patients with ovarian cancer has not been clearly explained yet. The aim of study was to assess the value of analysis of the mean number of AgNORs per nucleus (mAgNOR) and mean percentage of nuclei with five or more AgNORs per nucleus (pAgNOR) in the(More)
INTRODUCTION Ovarian clear cell carcinoma is a rare type of ovarian cancer. In recent years, issues of the common genetic origin of endometriosis and ovarian clear cell carcinoma have been raised. AIM OF THIS STUDY Aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of this type of cancer, risk factors, prognosis and its potential aetiological association(More)
UNLABELLED There has been a rise in the use of sonographic urethrocystography in patients with a full bladder. So far, no publications have been made on the analysis of repeatability and reproducibility of the measurements performed during this procedure. AIM An assessment of repeatability and reproducibility of urethral length measurements during(More)
Endometrial cancer belongs to the most frequently diagnosed malignant neoplasms of female genital organs, and its incidence is steadily growing. For the timebeing, no chromosomal aberrations have been determined unequivocally, which would be specific for the particular stages of endometrial hyperplasia and neoplastic transformation development. The goal of(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the membrane expression of DR4, DR5, DcR1 and DcR2 in the normal endometrium (NE), atypical endometrial hyperplasia (AEH) and endometrioid adenocarcinoma (EAC). METHODS The study comprised 197 patients: 20 NE, 18 AEH and 159 EAC. Tissue microarrays were constructed. Membrane expression of DR4, DR5, DcR1 and DcR2 was examined and(More)
