The aim of the study was to compare the prevalence of autoimmune thyroid diseases (AITD) in patients with breast and colorectal cancer and controls and to evaluate the impact of AITD on the outcome of patients with breast cancer. Serum levels of TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone), FT4 (free thyroxine), TPOAb (antibodies to thyroid peroxidase), TgAb(More)
Complement mannan-binding lectin (MBL) deficiency is associated with increased susceptibility to infections and autoimmune diseases. Previous studies suggested that the production of MBL is stimulated by thyroid hormones. The aim of our study was to investigate this association in patients with autoimmune thyroid diseases (AITD). Serum levels of MBL and(More)
The diagnostic and prognostic role of thyroid ultrasound (TUS) in pregnant women positive for antibodies to thyroperoxidase (TPOAb) is unclear. The aim of our study was to compare the relation of ultrasound thyroid texture to the thyroid laboratory tests in pregnant women and controls. Using a semi-quantitative assessment we compared TUS in two groups of(More)
Multiple myeloma (MM) is a hematological malignancy caused by clonal proliferation of malignant plasma cells (PC). The aim of the work is to determine prognostic significance of morphological subtypes of PC in relation to overall treatment response, long-term survival and other conventional prognostic parameters. One hundred and thirty-nine newly diagnosed(More)
Objective. To determine the expression of chemokine receptors in lymphocytes from thyroid nodules and peripheral blood in patients with and without Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT). Patients and Methods. The study included 46 women with thyroid nodules and HT and 60 women with thyroid nodules without HT (controls) who underwent a fine needle aspiration biopsy(More)
BACKGROUNDS Multiple myeloma is the second most common hematological disease caused by clonal proliferation of B cells. Evaluation of number of plasmocytes in the bone marrow is still one of the basic diagnostic criteria. The aim of this study was to verify if this evaluation has prognostic value even in the era of new drugs. MATERIAL AND METHODS Two(More)
