Uraemic patients frequently demonstrate tendencies towards life-threatening bleeding. Reduced platelet counts and their functional immaturity seem to be caused, among other things, by disorders in the system of marrow megakaryocytes. The aim of the study was a histomorphometric evaluation of marrow megakaryocytes in the course of experimental uraemia in(More)
Retinoic acid and transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) affect differentiation, proliferation and carcinogenesis of epithelial cells. The effect of both compounds on the proliferation of cells of the hormone sensitive human breast cancer cell line (ER+) MCF-7 was assessed in the presence of estradiol and tamoxifen. The assay was based on [3H]thymidine(More)
INTRODUCTION Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic, inflammatory and multiple-system disorder of connective tissue. It frequently affects joints and periarticular structures of feet that constitute a significant supporting element underlying normal gait and motion of the body centre of gravity. The aim of the study was to evaluate foot deformities on the(More)
Aim. The aim of the study was to compare the expression of sodium iodide symporter (NIS), thyroglobulin (Tg), tumor necrosis factor- α (TNF α ), and interleukin-1 β genes in patients with Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) and healthy individuals. Subjects and Methods. Thyroid cells were obtained from 39 patients with HT and 15 controls by an ultrasound guided(More)
PURPOSE Graves' disease (GD) is an organ-specific autoimmune thyroid disease, characterized by hyperthyroidism due to excessive production of thyroid hormone induced by thyrotropin receptor-specific stimulatory autoantibodies. In this study, we determined serum levels of the soluble forms of ICAM-1, VCAM-1, vWF, IL-6, IL-12, IL-18, fibrinogen and CRP in(More)
Hyperfunctional nodular goitre is the most common thyroid non-neoplastic condition in endemic areas. Iodotherapy is the basic method in thyroid gland hyperfunction treatment. The aim of the study was to evaluate proliferation of thyroid follicular cells in nodular goitre after iodotherapy. The study was carried out on 32 women, 30-76 years old. Cytological(More)
Retinoic acid and transforming growth factor-b (TGF-b) affect differentiation, proliferation and carcinogenesis of epithelial cells. The effect of both compounds on the proliferation of cells of the hormone sensitive human breast cancer cell line (ER+) MCF-7 was assessed in the presence of estradiol and tamoxifen. The assay was based on [ 3 H]thymidine(More)
The aim of the study was an estimation of the histomorphometry of megakaryocytes (MK) in bone marrow in selected myeloproliferative and lymphoproliferative diseases. Bone marrow specimens were obtained by trephine biopsies from 41 patients with polycythaemia rubra vera (PV), idiopathic myelofibrosis (MF), chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL), hairy cell(More)
UNLABELLED MR proton spectroscopy (1H MRS) has been widely applied in characterisation and differentiation of brain tumors, staging, recurrence of pathologic process, post radiotherapy changes and other lesions mimicking neoplasm like abscesses. Despite of many studies performed over last 3 years in many countries spectroscopic pattern (phenotype) of brain(More)
The aim of the study of 41 multiform glioblastomas was the analysis of p53-protein immunoreactivity in neoplastic cells and evaluation of relationship of this biologic marker to tumour proliferation activity. Positive p53 expression was observed in 24 (58.5%) tumours, the negative one in 17 tumours (41.5%). Proliferation indexes of PCNA, anti-Ki6 and AgNORs(More)
