BACKGROUND Gilbert's syndrome is a common metabolic dysfunction characterized by elevated levels of unconjugated bilirubin in the bloodstream. This condition is usually caused by additional (TA) insertions in a promoter region of the uridine diphosphate glucuronosyltransferase 1A1 (UGT1A1) gene, which instead of the sequence А(TА)6TАА contains А(TА)7TАА.(More)
Melanoma is a highly aggressive neoplastic disease attributed to transformed melanocytes. The efficacy of regimens of cytotoxic chemotherapy for advanced stage patients does not exceed 20%. Search for lymphocyte markers of patients' sensitivity to chemotherapy provides a rational basis for development of cytotoxic chemotherapy. Using blood lymphocytes we(More)
Patients with advanced malignant melanoma have poor prognosis as conventional chemotherapy induces complete response in a very small fraction (not more than 20%). One of research strategies aimed at raising its efficiency is the search for markers predicting individual response to chemotherapy. Our study was concerned with evaluation of the potential of DNA(More)
Melanoma is a highly aggressive tumor of melanocytes. The efficacy of different cytotoxic chemotherapy regimens does not exceed 20%. The search for markers for patient sensitivity to chemotherapy provides a rational basis for the development of cytotoxic chemotherapy. In this study, we evaluated six blood lymphocyte parameters (the efficacy of BER and MMR;(More)
