A morphometric analysis of tumoral Langerhans cells and activated macrophages was conducted using canine cutaneous tumors (65 cases of canine cutaneous histiocytoma and 7 cases of pyogranuloma). The histiocytic origin of the tumor cells was confirmed using immunohistochemistry. The parameters of the morphometric analysis included cellular and nuclear size(More)
The effectiveness of the immunohistochemical method in determining Cu/Zn SOD concentrations in red blood cells of dairy cattle and farm-raised deer was evaluated by a computer-assisted analysis of microscopic images and scanning technique. Superoxide dismutase (Cu/Zn SOD) concentrations in erythrocytes were determined in smears of whole blood samples(More)
This study evaluated the morphology and immunohistochemistry of 85 canine cutaneous histiocytic tumours. The tumours were classified morphologically as either canine cutaneous histiocytomas (71 tumours) or canine cutaneous histiocytic sarcomas (14 tumours). The immunohistochemical analysis was conducted on paraffin sections using an antibody panel (against(More)
The aim of this study was to examine the influence of long-term, high-dose dexamethasone administration on the liver, with particular emphasis on hepatocyte proliferation and apoptosis, using a swine model. The study included 48 large, female Polish breed pigs aged 3months (weighing ca. 30kg) divided into groups I (control; n=24) and II (dexamethasone;(More)
The aim of the study was the evaluation of morphology and immunophenotype of canine (19 cases) and feline (7 cases) extramedullary plasmacytomas. Tumours, located in skin, oral cavity and spleen were surgically excised, fixed and processed for histopathology and immunohistochemistry (CD79α, CD18, proliferating cell nuclear antigen, metallothionein).(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of low-energy laser irradiation, coenzyme Q10 and vitamin E supplementation on the apoptosis of macrophages and muscle precursor cells during skeletal muscle regeneration after bupivacaine-induced injury. The experiment was conducted on 75 gilts, divided into 5 experimental groups: I--control, II--low-energy(More)
An 8.5-month-old male Labrador retriever presented with a cutaneous mass in the right maxillofacial region and swelling of the gingiva. The dog received antibiotic and anti-inflammatory treatment. After 3 weeks the dog returned, presenting with disseminated cutaneous tumours on the neck, trunk and groin. One of the nodules was resected and a cutaneous round(More)
INTRODUCTION In mammals, placenta separation at term may involve degradation of the extracellular matrix by matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs). The activity of MMPs is modulated by TIMPs. We hypothesized that the placentas of mares that deliver fetal membranes physiologically and those that retain fetal membranes (FMR) differ in terms of histology; mRNA(More)
A clinical examination of a 4-yr-old fantail pigeon revealed a large skin tumor in the area of the left wing. The tumor had solid consistency and a single cavity filled with fluid. During necropsy, multiple tumors of varied size and diameter were found in the liver, spleen, pancreas, and kidneys. A histopathological examination of the skin tumor revealed(More)
The aim of this study was to analyse the morphological lesion pattern of the heart of broiler chickens (Cobb 500, Hubbard F15 and Ross 308) during fattening with no clinical signs of disease and to determine the most susceptible period for the occurrence of morphological lesions. The most frequently diagnosed lesions in each genetic line were degeneration(More)
