Fibrin formation is a multistep process initiated by thrombin. At first thrombin converts fibrinogen to fibrin molecules which in vivo form soluble complexes with fibrinogen. Soluble fibrin is considered to be an early biochemical marker for intravascular fibrin formation and impending thrombotic events, such as deep venous thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary(More)
A 65-year-old woman was admitted to the hospital with an elevated serum creatinine concentration associated with leukocyturia and erythrocyturia. Past medical history analysis revealed that four months before current hospitalization she had been subjected to colonoscopy preceded by the administration of oral sodium phosphate solution (OSP) as preparation(More)
The aim of the paper is to present the initial results of molecular examination which was started in 2006 for children with acute myeloid leukemia. Better knowledge of biology of this disease, can result in establishing of new risk factors what allows more precise patient stratification to different therapeutic groups. Study was obtained patients until to(More)
BACKGROUND Exercise-induced stress induces considerable changes in the immune system. To better understand the mechanisms related to these immune changes during acute and chronic physical stress, we studied the effects of aerobic physical training (APT) on several parameters of the immune system. METHODS Previously untrained males (18-25 years of age)(More)
Pronase treatment is used in the flow cytometry crossmatch (FCXM) to prevent nonspecific antibody binding on B cells. However, we have observed unexpected positive results with pronase-treated T cells in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients. In this study, 25 HIV-infected patients without HLA antibodies were tested with pronase-treated and(More)
OBJECTIVES Evaluate the time dependent expression of genes in preterm neonates and verify the influence of ontogenic maturation and the environmental factors on the gene expression after birth. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study was carried out on 20 full-term newborns and 62 preterm newborns (mean birth weight = 1002 [g] (SD: 247), mean gestational age =(More)
Alterations in axillary lymph nodes (ALNs) after complete axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) in comparison to the preoperative status were evaluated using lymphoscintigraphy performed preoperatively and 1-6 weeks after surgery in 30 women with a new diagnosis of unilateral, invasive breast carcinoma. Analysis of lymphoscintigrams revealed that ALNs after(More)
The presence of disseminated neuroblastoma cells in bone marrow in children over 1 year old is important for clinical staging and risk assessment at diagnosis and for therapy monitoring. Reliable detection of single tumor cells in bone marrow may be a factor of great prognostic significance. Currently disseminated NBL cells are detected by conventional(More)
