Telomere length was evaluated by terminal repeat fragment method (TRF) in 50 patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) arising from MDS and in 21 patients with untreated primary AML to ascertain, whether telomere erosion was associated with progression of MDS towards overt leukemia. Heterogeneity of TRF among MDS FAB(More)
It is important to determine and clarify the variability of mammary carcinogenesis induction in animal experimental studies particularly in connection with chemoprevention projects. The circannual seasonal rhythms of hormone levels or various parameters within the immune system may involve factors participating in mammary gland carcinogenesis. In our study,(More)
INTRODUCTION Procalcitonin (PCT) and C-reactive protein (CRP) are established markers of infection in the general population. In contrast, several studies reported falsely increased PCT levels in patients receiving T-cell antibodies. We evaluated the validity of these markers in patients scheduled for hemopoietic stem cell transplantation receiving(More)
Serum procalcitonin (PCT) has become a routinely utilized parameter with a high prediction value of the severity of bacterial infectious complications and their immediate outcomes. Whereas the utility of PCT in differentiating between bacterial and viral infection is generally accepted, its significance in fungal infections has yet to be determined. The aim(More)
Overall 42 patients (pts) transplanted in hematological CR1 were retrospectively analyzed. Median follow-up was 15 months (range 2-77). The expression of WT1 gene was measured according to the European Leukaemia Net recommendations. At the time of allogeneic stem cell transplantation (allo-SCT) 29 pts were WT1-negative and 13 pts were WT1-positive. In the(More)
Leptin is a 16 kDa protein hormone involved in food intake, energy expenditure regulation and numerous other physiological processes. Recently, leptin has been demonstrated to stimulate hematopoietic stem cells in vitro. The aim of our study was to measure serum leptin and erythropoietin levels in patients with sideropenic (n = 18) and pernicious anemia(More)
In recent years, many studies have confirmed that allogeneic stem cell transplantation (allo-SCT) can provide long-term disease control and possible cure in selected patients with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL), including those with a biologically highly unfavourable risk profile. A retrospective analysis of allo-SCT in 30 patients with CLL whose risk(More)
The authors developed a method of chronological age estimation in young individuals on the basis of third molar developmental stage. The new method is based on the finding that time course of third molar development depends on the number of assessed third molars. That means, in individuals with 1 to 3 third molars agenesis the development of founded third(More)
The third molar development was studied on the basis of 1700 panoramic radiographs analysis of randomly selected individuals in the age ranging between 5-21 years inclusive. Each age group consisted of 100 probands--50 boys and 50 girls. The characteristics of the third molar development were following: time of dental follicle formation--dynamics of(More)
Two patients with the characteristic high human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) DNA loads in peripheral blood caused by chromosomally integrated (CI) virus received a haematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) from a donor without CI HHV-6. Both patients died in consequence of cytomegalovirus (CMV) pneumonitis. At autopsy, high amounts of CMV DNA were detected in(More)
