The epiphyseal growth plate develops from the cartilaginous-orientated mesenchymal cells that express SOX family genes. This multilayer structure is formed by the proliferation and hypertrophy of cells that synthesize the extracellular matrix composed of collagen (mainly type II, IX, X, XI) and proteoglycans (aggrecan, decorin, annexin II, V and VI). The(More)
Esophageal carcinoma is the eighth most common malignancy in the world. In most countries, including Poland, the squamous cell carcinoma is a predominant histological type. It is characterized by extreme diversity in geographical distribution and incidence. High incidence is noted in regions located along with so-called "Asian esophageal cancer belt"(More)
Oral cancer is the eleventh most common malignancy in the world, with squamous cell carcinoma being a predominant histologic type. The highest incidence is observed in India, Australia, Brazil, France and South Africa. In Europe the most affected regions are France, French-language cantons of Switzerland, northern Italy and countries of the Middle-East(More)
Over-the-counter cyclooxygenase inhibitors are used to relief fever and various types of acute pain like headache, toothache, earache, sore throat, as well as postoperative and menstrual ones. They are also major ingredients in cold and flu mixtures. Unlike well-known organ toxicological profile, their prenatal toxicity was not fully established. For a long(More)
BACKGROUND Ichthyosis Follicularis, Atrichia and Photophobia (IFAP) syndrome is a rare genodermatosis due to mutations of the MBTPS2 gene. To date fewer than 40 cases have been described in the literature. OBJECTIVES To present the first case of IFAP diagnosed in Poland due to a novel mutation of MBTPS2, and to review the relevant literature on this rare(More)
UNLABELLED Two molecules - vascular endothelial growth factor involved in new vessels formation and survivin - antiapoptotic protein, reported to be associated with worse prognosis in various malignancies have been chosen for the study. Both are potential target for novel therapies. THE AIM OF THE STUDY Was to determine the immunostaining of VEGF and(More)
Gastric heterotopia is very rare in the rectum - less than 50 cases have been reported so far. Only in six of them Helicobacter pylori has been observed in heterotopic mucosa. We report a case of a 58-year-old woman with asymptomatic gastric heterotopia in the rectum, incidentally revealed during colonoscopy as a small, sessile polyp. The presence of H.(More)
The study was undertaken to determine the immunoexpression of protein products of nm23 genes which are thought to be potential metastasis suppressor genes, in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma, and to analyze their relationship to selected clinicopathological features (age, sex, tumour size, depth of invasion, presence of lymph nodes and distant(More)
Testing for the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene mutations requires considerable multidisciplinary experience of clinicians (for appropriate patient selection), pathologists (for selection of appropriate cytological or histological material) and geneticists (for performing and reporting reliable molecular tests). We present our experience on the(More)
Intravascular lymphoma (IVL) is a rare aggressive disease characterised by the presence of lymphoma cells only in the lumina of small vessels, particularly capillaries. Only about 200 cases have been reported in the world (some of them retrospectively). IVL is predominantly of B-cell lineage origin but occasionally T-cell lineage occurs. Multiple organs may(More)
