BACKGROUND Approximately 20% of children and adolescents in Europe are overweight. Survivors of pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) are at increased risk of overweight and obesity. The purpose of this study was to assess leptin and leptin soluble receptor levels, as well as polymorphisms of selected genes in survivors of pediatric ALL, and the(More)
Chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) is phagocytic cell metabolic disorder resulting in recurrent infections and granuloma formation. This paper reports the favourable outcome of allogeneic transplantation in six high-risk CGD patients. The following donors were used: HLA-matched, related (two) and unrelated (three), and HLA-mismatched, unrelated (one). One(More)
OBJECTIVE Biomarkers of adipose tissue may affect glucose and lipid metabolism and present pro-inflammatory properties, thus could be involved in the pathobiochemistry of cardiovascular disease (CVD). The coexistence of sleep apnea syndrome (OSA) and metabolic risk factors of CVD is worth explaining. The aim of the study was to compare the serum(More)
Infections in immunocompromised patients after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation can have a severe and atypical course. Some opportunistic pathogens are difficult to detect in microbiological tests, and that is why treatment success depends on an accurate clinical diagnosis. This article presents a case of a 7-year-old girl with severe aplastic anemia(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY Recent studies showed relatively better outcome for children with refractory (refAML) and relapsed acute myeloid leukemia (relAML). Treatment of these patients has not been unified within Polish Pediatric Leukemia/Lymphoma Study Group (PPLLSG) so far. The goal of this study is to analyze the results of this therapy performed between(More)
In the study, 48 children with severe acquired aplastic anemia (SAA) transplanted from matched sibling donor (MSD) between 1991 and 2009, and 38 children with SAA transplanted from matched unrelated donor (MUD) between 2000 and 2009 were evaluated. Engraftment was achieved in 45 (93.75 %) patients after MSD-hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) and(More)
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common life-limiting, autosomal, recessive genetic disorder. The gene which is responsible for the symptoms of this disease is located on the long arm of chromosome 7 and encodes the protein called Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator (CFTR), an apical chloride channel in epithelial cells. CF is a(More)
