INTRODUCTION The use of β-blockers in the treatment of patients with coronary heart disease is associated with a decrease in the frequency of angina pectoris and mortality of patients. Due to the severity of the disease and previous cardiovascular interventions, many patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) use dual antiplatelet therapy to achieve(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS B-chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL) is characterized by the progressive accumulation of small B lymphocytes that do not undergo apoptosis due to an underlying defect. One potential mechanism of defective apoptosis may be irregular cytokine production. The goal of our investigation was to determine in vitro production of relevant(More)
PURPOSE Overproduction of reactive oxygen species (ROS) intermediates above the functional capability of cellular antioxidants may result in instability of important macromolecules and represents the molecular basis of many diseases including inflammation processes, cardiovascular alterations, cancer etc. The purpose of this study was to determine plasma(More)
HPLC determination of fleroxacin in dosage forms was carried out using either reversed-phase column YMC pack ODS-AQ or Supelco LC Hisep shielded hydrophobic phase column, with UV detection at 280 nm. The mobile phase for ODS column consisted of 50:50:0.5 v/v/v and for Hisep column 15:85:0.5 v/v/v acetonitrile-water-triethylamine. The pH of the mobile phase(More)
Many studies have demonstrated an increase of neutrophils in patients with advanced cancer. However, the possible role of increased neutrophils in various neoplasms studied to date varies considerably. The authors examined the changes in white blood cell counts in patients with peritoneal carcinomatosis. Malonildialdehyde and nitric oxide (NO) plasma and(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY Flow cytometry has an important role in diagnosis and classification of B-cell lymphoproliferative disorders (BCLPDs). However, in distinguishing chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) from small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL) only clinical criteria are available so far. Aim of the study was to determine differences in the expression of common B(More)
PURPOSE B cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL) is an neoplastic disorder characterized by alterations in the pathways of programmed cell death (apoptosis). Deregulation of apoptosis pathways also contributes to chemoresistance of B-CLL cells. Therefore, it is not surprising that induction and acceleration of apoptosis represent key point in novel B-CLL(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the serum levels of IFN-γ, IL-18, NO and MDA, in patients with breast cancer and to assess their clinical significance as a novel diagnostic markers in breast carcinoma. METHODS We examined IFN-γ, IL-18, NO and MDA in 18 healthy volunteers, 38 patients with primary invasive breast cancer, and 18 patients(More)
Both apoptosis and micronuclei formation reflect cytogenetic damage in cells and could contribute to cell homeostasis. The aim of this study was to evaluate apoptosis in peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBLs) of patients with differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) before and after 131-iodine (131-I)-therapy and its correlation with micronuclei (MN) frequency. The(More)
Clinical features of 40 lymphoproliferative neoplasm patients in the setting of systemic autoimmune diseases managed in the Clinic of Hematology during 1994-2006 were analyzed retrospectively. The classification of systemic autoimmune disease patients was as follows: 15 systemic lupus erythematosus--SLE, 11 rheumatoid arthritis--RA, 12 Sjögren's(More)
