Glucose metabolism disorders influence anticarcinogenic function of natural killer (NK) cells. The aim of this study was to evaluate the number and cytotoxic activity of NK cells in type 2 diabetic (T2D) patients with negative family history of cancer, type 2 diabetic subjects with newly diagnosed untreated colon cancer (T2DCC) and patients without type 2(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to determine serum concentrations of a proinflammatory cytokine, tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α), in patients with recurrent abortions undergoing treatment with sildenafil or etanercept. MATERIAL AND METHODS Serum TNF-α concentrations were determined for 24 patients with recurrent miscarriages (aged 32.7 ± 4.64(More)
