Metabolomics is an emerging approach in a systems biology field. Due to continuous development in advanced analytical techniques and in bioinformatics, metabolomics has been extensively applied as a novel, holistic diagnostic tool in clinical and biomedical studies. Metabolome's measurement, as a chemical reflection of a current phenotype of a particular(More)
The goal of the present paper was to develop a quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) method using a simple statistical approach, such as multiple linear regression (MLR) for predicting the blood-brain barrier (BBB) permeability of chemical compounds. The "best" MLR models, comprised logP and either molecular mass (M) or isolated atomic energy(More)
Pulmonary embolism (PE) is a common cardiovascular emergency which can lead to pulmonary hypertension (PH) and right ventricular failure as a consequence of pulmonary arterial bed occlusion. The diagnosis of PE is challenging due to nonspecific clinical presentation, which results in relatively high mortality. Moreover, the pathological factors associated(More)
Prostate cancer (CaP) is a leading cause of cancer deaths in men worldwide. The alarming statistics, the currently applied biomarkers are still not enough specific and selective. In addition, pathogenesis of CaP development is not totally understood. Therefore, in the present work, metabolomics study related to urinary metabolic fingerprinting analyses has(More)
In a personalized treatment designed for a patient with pancreatic cancer resistant to other treatments, the success of Mitomycin C (MMC) has been highlighted. This was revealed in a murine xenograft tumor model encompassing pancreatic adenocarcinoma cells extracted from the patient. The patient was found to exhibit a biallelic inactivation of the PALB2(More)
Although in recent decades the development of many drugs against cancer has been witnessed, the morbidity and mortality for the most prevalent urogenital cancer have not been significantly reduced. A key task in cancer medicine is to detect the disease as early as possible. In order to achieve this, many new technologies have been developed for cancer(More)
of compounds characteristic for Chorthippus spp. samples has been selected. In the last part of the study, a statistical analysis was performed to demonstrate differences in composition of aqueous fractions of abdominal secretions from grasshoppers collected at two distant locations: Starogard gdan´ski and Łubianka meadows.
Cancer disease is the second leading cause of death in the world. Epidemiology data indicate that early diagnosis of a tumour increases a patient's chance of recovery. Biomarkers are effective instruments which can potentially lead to precancer screening or precancer diagnosis and may provide useful information on the cancer type and the disease's stage of(More)
Non-targeted metabolomics constitutes a part of the systems biology and aims at determining numerous metabolites in complex biological samples. Datasets obtained in the non-targeted metabolomics studies are high-dimensional due to sensitivity of mass spectrometry-based detection methods as well as complexity of biological matrices. Therefore, a proper(More)
The automated mass spectral deconvolution and identification system (AMDIS) is a modern analytical tool, mostly used as a data processing method in environmental studies. The most attractive feature of that software is a fast, automatic data processing, which includes removal of interferences from the overlapping peaks and purification of the obtained mass(More)
