BACKGROUND Neoplasms are the second leading cause of death in Poland after vessel diseases, despite the huge progress in medical sciences in the last 20 years. Recently, gastric cancer morbidity has decreased, but mortality is still at a high level. MATERIAL/METHODS Tissues from 24 patients with a histopathologically diagnosed mucosal and adenomucosal(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the concentrations of IgG antibodies against Hsp60 and Hsp65 in sera of patients with ovarian cancer at various stages of clinical progress and for different histopathological types of disease. METHODS Serum samples from 149 patients with ovarian carcinoma and 80 healthy women were investigated. The(More)
BACKGROUND A higher serum phosphate level is associated with worse outcome. Energy-demanding intracellular transport of phosphate is needed to secure anion bioavailability. In heart failure (HF), energy starvation may modify intracellular and serum levels of phosphate. We analysed determinants of serum phosphates in HF and assessed if catabolic/anabolic(More)
INTRODUCTION Despite advances in pharmacotherapy, electrotherapy and interventional treatment, chronic heart failure (HF) is still associated with poor long-term outcome. AIM OF THE STUDY To determine the death rate and risk factors in patients with HF of ischemic and non-ischemic etiology in five-year follow-up. MATERIAL AND METHODS Consecutive(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic nature of the nasal polyps, tendency to recurrence, and lack of satisfying treatment need the diagnostic's parameters which show early inflammatory state as ferritin and hs-CRP. The Aim of Study. Assessment of hs-CRP and ferritin blood levels in nasal polyps patients in evaluation of treatment efficacy. METHODS All 38 patients were(More)
INTRODUCTION Despite advances in medicine, chronic heart failure (CHF) still remains a significant clinical problem associated with poor outcome. AIM OF THE STUDY To determine risk factors for major adverse cardiac events (MACE) in three-year follow-up in patients with CHF of nonischemic etiology. MATERIAL AND METHODS The prospective study included(More)
INTRODUCTION The need to indentify patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) at a higher risk of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACEs) has become increasingly important; therefore, new parameters, such as health-related quality of life (HRQoL), are gaining ground. THE AIM OF THIS STUDY The aim of this study was to determine the risk factors for(More)
OBJECTIVES To study the assessment of diagnostic value and clinical usefulness of the determination of homocysteine concentration in blood serum in cases of recurrent miscarriages and the relation between the concentration of homocysteine in blood serum and parameter values determining the Doppler blood flow in the uterine arteries. METHODS Homocysteine(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study were to assess the levels of lipofuscin (parameter of oxidative stress), homocysteine (as a marker of vascular injury) and tissue specific antigen - TPS - (as a marker of cell proliferation) in relation to arterial pressure of pregnant woman. STUDY DESIGN Healthy pregnant women (n=18), women with mild 140/90=< RR<160/100(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the project was the assessment of clinical usefulness of the determination of blood serum homocysteine concentration, folic acid and vitamin B12 in recurrent miscarriages. METHODS 30 non-pregnant women with recurrent miscarriages (examined group-I) and for 20 non-pregnant women without obstetric failures in medical history (control(More)
