AIM The question as to whether the incidence of leukemias and malignant lymphomas among the Chernobyl clean-up workers increased in 20 years after the catastrophe is still a point of much controversy. Precise diagnosis of the main forms of hematopoietic malignancies according to FAB classification and new WHO classification and comparison of these data with(More)
A panel of markers, including MAbs to different epitopes of CEA, B 6.2, detection of AP activity and lectin receptors (PNA, HPL, SBA, LAL, LcL) for cell identification in pleural effusions, is proposed. Using immunocytochemical methods cancer cells were determined in all 80 cytological positive and in 13 from 21 cytologically negative cancer effusions. The(More)
The data on the verified cases of mature B-cell neoplasms (chronic lymphocytic leukemia - CLL, B-prolymphocytic leukemia, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in leukemization phase and multiple myeloma - MM; 146 cases in total) in the consecutive group of Ukrainian clean-up workers within 10-25 years after Chernobyl accident are summarized. B-cell neoplasms represent(More)
The study included 1742 patients with acute myeloblastic leukaemias (AML) and acute lymphoblastic leukaemias (ALL), Kyiv city residents and patients from 20 regions of Ukraine. Bone marrow and blood smears were sent at diagnosis to Reference Center. The analysis was based on May-Grünvald-Giemza (MGG) stain and cytochemical reactions (MPO, acNSE, CAE, AP,(More)
The studies of the recent decades posed the question of the association between radiation exposure and myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). This association has been proved in secondary MDS originating upon exposure to chemotherapeutics and/or radiation therapy. The long-term study in Japanese atomic (A)-bomb survivors demonstrated the significant linear(More)
BACKGROUND Genetic mechanisms that result in the development and progression of B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL) are mainly unknown. We have analyzed gene expression patterns in Ukrainian B-CLL patients with the aim of identifying B-CLL involved / associated genes in order to shed light on the biology of this pathological entity. MATERIAL AND(More)
AIM To compare the sensitivity of normal and malignant human lymphocytes to 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) - mediated photodynamic damage. METHODS Blood lymphocytes isolated by Ficoll-sodium metrizoate density gradient from healthy donors (6) and hematologic patients (20) with different forms of lympholeukemia, and also transformed lymphocytes of human(More)
During 1993-1997, 247 cases of childhood acute leukemia (AL) were analyzed among inhabitants of the city of Kiev and Kiev region, excluding the most contaminated areas belonging to the strict control zone. The criteria of an FAB classification supplemented by immunophenotyping data were applied. The AL pattern was shown to be quite typical except for(More)
OBJECTIVE Nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB) is an important transcription factor in cancer and NF-κB activation has been seen in angiogenesis, tumor progression, and metastasis. Relationships between specific NF-κB gene networks, leukemogenesis, and radiation exposure are still unknown. Our aim was to study the expression levels of the NF-κB1, NF-κB2, and Rel(More)
Cell surface expression of CD150 and CD180 receptors in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) associates with mutational IGHV status and favourable prognosis. Here we show a direct correlation between cell surface expression and colocalization of these receptors on CLL B cells. In the absence of CD150 and CD180 on the cell surface both receptors were expressed(More)
