Cervical carcinomas are second most frequent type of women cancer. Success in diagnostics of this disease is due to the use of Pap-test (cytological smear analysis). However Pap-test gives significant portion of both false-positive and false-negative conclusions. Amendments of the diagnostic procedure are desirable. Aetiological role of papillomaviruses in(More)
Oncoprotein E7 HPV16 was detected by immunohistochemical staining with specific polyclonal antiserum [Fiedler et al., 2004] in 7 out of the 24 (29.2%) studied bladder cancer specimens. The result is in good agreement with the hypothesis that HPVs take part in the carcinogenesis of the urothelium. However, some of the observations made seem rather hard to be(More)
82 In the literature, there has been a lot of debate about the role of herpes simplex virus (HSV) in abnormal pregnancy, fetus development and in the newborn health. Most studies deal with female herpetic infection during pregnancy (see [1] for review). As early as 30 years ago, various reproductive technologies appeared that attract attention to virus(More)
High risk type human papilloma viruses (HR-HPV) induce carcinomas of the uterine cervix by expressing viral oncogenes E6 and E7. Oncogene E7 of HR-HPV disrupts the pRb/E2F interaction, which negatively regulates the S phase entry. Expression of tumor suppressor p16ink4a drastically increases in majority of HR-HPV associated carcinomas due to removal of pRb(More)
We propose a system for detection of overproduction of protein kinase MAK-V/Hunk in tumours. MAK-V/ Hunk overproduction is observed in about 50% breast carcinomas. Positive staining is obseved in tumour cells only and has mainly cytoplasmic characteristics. Increased production of MAK-V/Hunk does not correlate with histological type of carcinoma,(More)
The presence of human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) in male genital tract suggests its vertical transmission with spermatozoa and the development of a potentially dangerous fetal infection. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the possibility of intracellular HCMV localization in male germ cells and to examine the effect of the virus on human(More)
New polymethylene derivatives of the nucleic bases with β-diketo function in the ω-position have been synthesized by alkylation of uracil, thymine, cytosine, hypoxanthine, adenine, and N 2-isobutyryl guanine with 2-(ω-chloroalkanoyl)cyclohexanones. The physicochemical characteristics of compounds synthesized and their effect on tumor K562 and HCT116 cell(More)
This report presents the initial results of the first Russian molecular epidemiological study of melanoma. The investigation included 1035 patients with stage IIIB-IV melanoma residing in various regions of Russia. Sequencing of BRAF gene revealed mutation in 627 (60.6%) tumors; c.1799T > A (p.V600E) substitution was detected in 563 cases, and other(More)
A correlation between the detection of proteins and an activity of the pathological process was analyzed in a study of the content of the C virus hepatitis (CVH) proteins in hepatic cells of patients with chronic C hepatitis (CCH). The expression of CVH proteins in frozen sections of biopsy samples of 69 CCH patients was evaluated by using the(More)
In the past decade, intense studies of the tumor microenvironment yielded ample data testifying to the critical role of stroma in carcinogenesis. Genetic lesions accumulate not only in the tumor epithelium, but also in tumor-associated fibroblasts. The epithelial and stromal components of prostate cancer (PC) and prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (PIN)(More)
