Human umbilical cord blood contains haematopoietic stem cells, which are a potential source of cells for hematopoietic transplants. Early cord blood hematopoietic cells are influenced by so called proinflammatory cytokines, which are present in cord blood serum. In this study we tried to correlate the concentration of these cytokines with the number,(More)
The aim of neonatologist is to anticipate clinical status of newborn immediately after delivery. Important are all parameters helpful in determining perinatal outcome. Particular attention is paid to proinflammatory cytokines: IL-1 alpha, IL-1 beta, IL-6, IL-8 and TNF alpha. The aim was to verify a relationships between umbilical cord blood cytokines and(More)
Homocysteine is known as an independent risk factor of atherosclerosis. The aim of this study was assessment of serum homocysteine concentrations in obese children and evaluation of possible relationship between homocysteine and risk factors of atherosclerosis. 498 children with simple obesity were included into our study. There was a significant(More)
Haematopoietic stem cell transplantation is indicated in several haematologic and genetic diseases, the most notable being aplastic anemia and leukemias. Bone marrow has been the traditional source of these cells. Human umbilical cord blood (UCB) has recently become an alternative source of haematopoietic stem cells for transplants. The advantages of cord(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess cord blood leptin levels in preterm and small-for-gestational age neonates and determine whether fetal leptin levels correlate with selected clinical parameters associated with prematurity and undernutrition at birth. DESIGN Study of preterm newborns (p-AGA; n = 31) and small-for-gestational age (t-SGA; n = 23) cases in a population(More)
