Introduction: Recently we identified in bone marrow (BM) by employing chemotactic isolation to SDF-1 gradient combined with real time RT-PCR analysis a mobile population of CXCR4+ BM mononuclear cells that express mRNA for various markers of early tissue-committed stem cells (TCSCs). In this study we evaluated whether TCSCs respond to other motomorphogens,(More)
BACKGROUND The reported probability of survival of patients with Hodgkin's disease (HD) following high-dose chemotherapy with autologous stem cell transplantation (HDC/ASCT) is 35-65% at 5 years. The Polish Lymphoma Research Group investigated retrospectively prognostic factors for overall survival (OS) and event-free survival (EFS), and the risk of(More)
In this study, geldanamycin (GA) was found to have an antiproliferative effect on both embryonal and alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) cell lines. The maximum level of inhibition reached 80% for both embryonal and alveolar RMS. After GA treatment, cells also became apoptotic as judged by Annexin V-positive staining, activation of caspase-3 pathway and(More)
The aim of the study was to assess the markers of oxidant-antioxidant status in excess body mass index (BMI) persons with and without the obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). In overweight (BMI-1: 25.0-29.9 kg/m(2)) control and OSAS and obese (BMI-2: 30.0-34.9 kg/m(2)) control and OSAS subjects with no acute or chronic disorder the following markers(More)
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)
BACKGROUND Outcomes of Ewing tumor (ET) patients treated with allogeneic stem cell transplantation (allo-SCT) were compared regarding the use of reduced-intensity conditioning (RIC) and high-intensity conditioning (HIC) regimens as well as human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-matched and HLA-mismatched grafts. PATIENTS AND METHODS We retrospectively analyzed(More)
BACKGROUND The chemokine-chemokine receptor (CR) network is involved in the regulation of cellular infiltration of tumours. Cancer cells and infiltrating macrophages produce a whole range of chemokines. This study explored the expression of some CR and chemokine production by cord blood stem cell-derived CD34(+) monocytes and their novel CD14(++)CD16(+) and(More)
Rhabdomyosarcoma is a highly metastatic tumor, mostly observed in children and adolescence. When diagnosed at early stages it is mostly curable. However, in advanced or metastatic stages the 5-years survival rate is below 20%. Thus, new treatment strategies for this tumor are needed. In this paper we showed that HSP90 inhibitors, geldanamycin and its(More)
We analysed the treatment outcome of primary refractory HD patients managed with high-dose chemotherapy and haematopoietic cell transplantation. Data of 65 adult patients who underwent HDC/ASCT in nine Polish centres for primary resistant Hodgkin's disease between June 1991 and July 2000 were collected retrospectively. Response rate to HDC/ASC: CR, 54%; PR,(More)
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common autosomal disorder in the Caucasian population. The main goal of the study was to assess the biological condition of adult patients with CS. Data of 90 CF patients aged 18-31 were considered. The biological condition was determined by the measurement of somatometric traits and the nutritional status. The results show(More)
