Specific populations of patients are at high risk for the development of germ cell neoplasia. OCT4 has been shown to be a sensitive and specific marker for intratubular germ cell neoplasia of the testis. Whether or not OCT4 immunohistochemistry is a clinically useful screening tool in patients at risk for developing malignant germ cell tumors is not(More)
Acinic cell carcinoma is a rare, low-grade malignant salivary gland neoplasm. Approximately, 20% of patients experience local recurrence and 10% distant metastasis, often many years after initial presentation. We present a case of widespread cutaneous metastasis from acinic cell carcinoma arising in a 59-year-old woman with a history of acinic cell(More)
Bronchogenic cyst (BC), a rare developmental abnormality of the primitive foregut and usually found above the diaphragm, can occur in the retroperitoneum and other unusual locations where distinction from metastatic teratoma is essential. We studied 22 BCs and 34 teratomas metastatic to the retroperitoneum in men. Of 22 BCs, 17 (77%) showed well or moderate(More)
The authors studied the changes in monoamine levels in rat brain limbic structures during natural satiation and satiation after intraperitoneal injection of cholecystokinin octapeptide (CCK-8) in doses 5 and 10 micrograms/kg following 24- and 48-hour food deprivation. Injection of CCK-8 was found to reduce food consumption in hungry rats by 2.5 times on an(More)
The paper presents studies of the influence of octapeptide cholecystokinin (ChCK-8) on the level of dofamine, noradrenaline and serotonine in the hypothalamus, septum, amygdala, striatum and mesencephalon of the rats brain during 24-, 48- and 96-hour alimentary and water deprivation. A change of catecholamines content under the influence of ChCK-8 was(More)
