BACKGROUND/AIM Insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) and other growth factors overexpression was reported in acute pancreatitis. Previous studies have shown the protective effect of epidermal growth factor (EGF), Hepatocyte Growth Factor (HGF) and Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF) in the course of experimental acute pancreatitis. The aim of our studies was to(More)
Endocrine cells of gastric and gut mucosa are commonly thought to be present only within mucosal glands. In a previous report, we described argyrophilic cells in the lamina propria in 40% of surgical gastric specimens, using light microscopy. All these patients had chronic gastritis. Argyrophilia, however, is a non-specific reaction which could occur in(More)
Application of acrylic emulsion Liquitex R for injection studies of the vascular system of human myomatous uteri was analysed. It was found that this injection mass does not penetrate the capillary bed of human organs, but it is useful in studies carried out on the blood supply of the human organs removed from cadavers. The results were compared with the(More)
Expression of p16 protein, intragenic mutations of CDKN2A and hypermethylation of CDKN2A promoter region in 41 sporadic primary uveal melanomas were studied. There were 2 cases of spindle cell B histological type, 11 of A + B and 28 of mixed type. All melanomas infiltrated sclera but in 28 cases infiltration was superficial while in 13 profound. In 7 cases(More)
The aim of the study was to test applycability of neural networks to classification of pancreatic intraductal proliferative lesions basing on nuclear features, especially chromatin texture. Material for the study was obtained from patients operated on for pancreatic cancer, chronic pancreatitis and other tumours requiring pancreatic resection. Intraductal(More)
The increasing frequency and poor prognosis in pancreatic cancer prompt us to search for morphological lesions being a substrate for its development. Studies of autopsy and surgically resected material as well as recent molecular studies have proved that one of the possible pathways of pancreatic neoplasia is the intraepithelial(More)
