The aim of the study was to find correlations between MMP/TIMP reactivity and the expression of angiogenic factors, and relationships between these parameters and clinicopathological features of gastric cancer patients. Receiver Operating Characteristic curve analysis was used to find cut-off points that enabled fair decision-making in survival analysis.(More)
Caspases (Cysteine Aspartate Specific Proteases) are a group of cysteine-containing proteolytic enzymes produced by the cells of living organisms. They participate in immunological functions, proliferation, cell migration and organization. Caspases also influence the secretion of various regulative factors. Moreover, they are responsible for cellular(More)
The role of HER-2 expression as a prognostic factor in gastric cancer (GC) is still controversial. The aim of the study was to asses HER-2 status, its correlations with clinicopathological parameters, and prognostic impact in GC patients. Tumor samples were collected from 78 patients who had undergone curative surgery. In order to evaluate the intensity of(More)
One of the most important prognostic indicators in gastric cancer is the presence of metastases in lymph nodes. Even now, little is known about lymphangiogenesis in neoplastic tissue, and little is also known about the transmission of a neoplastic cell from the tumor mass into a lymphatic vessel. This study examined the relationships between the density of(More)
The aim of the experimental research was to assess the impact of a high damage to brachial plexus elements on the condition of neurons of spinal cord anterior horns. The research was conducted on 12 rabbits, in which the ventral branches of spinal nerves C5-Th1 were severed. During dissections carried out 7, 30, 60, 180 days after the operation the(More)
The activity of cysteine peptidases (cathepsins B and L) was estimated in homogenates of tissues sampled during surgery from 60 patients operated due to colorectal tumors. The results were compared to those obtained using tissues in which histopathology disclosed no tumorous cells, obtained from 20 patients of the same group, treated as a control. Activity(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Gastric cancer (GC) in Poland is on the third place of men's mortality and on the fifth place of women's mortality in malignant neoplasms, and the percentage of diagnosed early GC is less than 20%. In this study, the relationship among lymphatic vessel density, marked with D2-40, expression of vascular endothelial growth factor(More)
Schwannoma is a rare, usually benign, generally slow growing, asymptomatic mesenchymal neoplasm derived from nerve cells. In the gastrointestinal tract the most common localization is stomach and the gastric schwannomas represent about 0.2% of all gastric neoplasms. We present a case of 44-years-old male admitted to 2nd Department of General Surgery and(More)
Bezoar is an uncommon phenomenon which results from the accumulation of ingested foreign material such as hair, fur or fiber which can easily lead to formation of a large mass in the intestinal tract [1]. Bezoars were once prized as magical items with protective properties. The word “bezoar” comes from the Persian for “protection from poison”. People would(More)
Erythroprotein-producing human hepatocellular carcinoma receptors (Eph receptors) compose a subfamily of transmembrane protein-tyrosine kinases receptors that takes part in numerous physiological and pathological processes. Eph family receptor-interacting proteins (Ephrins) are ligands for those receptors. Eph/ephrin system is responsible for the(More)
