INTRODUCTION Recent reports suggest that expression of the cyclooxygenase 2 (COX-2) enzyme may up-regulate expression of MDR1/P-glycoprotein (MDR1/P-gp), an exponent of resistance to cytostatic drugs. The present study aimed at examining the relationship between the expression of COX-2 and of MDR1/P-gp in a group of breast cancer cases. METHODS(More)
In the paper the visualization of medical data sets by Samonn's mapping is tested. This mapping performs the projection of multidimentional data into the small size space. For the purpose of visualization the size is equal 2. The obtained results were verified with the results of statistical approach. The application of Samonn's mapping seems to be(More)
The role of HER-2 expression as a prognostic factor in gastric cancer (GC) is still controversial. The aim of the study was to asses HER-2 status, its correlations with clinicopathological parameters, and prognostic impact in GC patients. Tumor samples were collected from 78 patients who had undergone curative surgery. In order to evaluate the intensity of(More)
The aim of this study was to examine the expression of ERM (ezrin, moesin) and Rho (RhoA, RhoB and Cdc42) proteins in breast cancer (BC) patients and to investigate the relationship between the sub-cellular localisation of these proteins and clinicopathological characteristics and patient survival. The expression and specific sub-cellular distribution of(More)
Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) are important targets for treatment and critical surrogate markers when evaluating cancer prognosis and therapeutic response. A sensitive methodology for detecting CTCs in gastric cancer (GC) patients is needed. In this study we demonstrate a device for enrichment and cultivation of CTCs. In total, 22 patients with GC, all(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to assess the usefulness of the breast segmentectomy with rotation mammoplasty (BSRMP) in conserving therapy for an extensive ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) with or without an invasive component. METHODS Thirty-six women with DCIS visible as large area of microcalcifications distributed out of the retroareolar area(More)
BACKGROUND Commonly identified on screening mammography breast microcalcifications are the predominant manifestation of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). The aim of this study was to investigate the association between clinico-radiological features and histological findings in patients with screen-detected DCIS. PATIENTS AND METHODS Consecutive 127(More)
BACKGROUND ALCAM (activated leukocyte cell adhesion molecule, CD166, MEMD) is a transmembrane protein of immunoglobulin superfamily (Ig-SF) and plays an important role in human malignant melanoma progression and formation of locoregional and distant metastases. The study using melanoma cell lines showed that overexpression of ALCAM is directly related with(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the prognostic value of the immunohistochemical evaluation of the multidrug resistance-associated protein 2 (MRP2) expression, together with its subcellular localization in primary fallopian tube carcinomas (PFTCs). METHODS The immunohistochemical analysis was performed using samples originating from 70 patients with PFTCs. (More)
