The aim of this study was to examine the prevalence and clinicopathological significance of KRAS point mutation in endometrial hyperplasia and carcinoma. We analysed KRAS in 11 cases of complex atypical hyperplasia and in 49 endometrial carcinomas using polymerase chain reaction associated with restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFPL). Point(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate angiogenesis as an independent prognostic factor and to determine the correlation of the microvessel density (MD) with lymph node metastases and survival rate in 73 women operated because of invasive squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the uterine cervix at clinical stages lb and IIa (FIGO). The patients were divided into(More)
The aim of the study was the quantitative assessment of nucleolar organizer regions (NORs) in the cells of preneoplastic and neoplastic endometrial lesions. Retrospective analysis included tissue material obtained from 87 patients with simple and complex hyperplasia with or without atypia and well-differentiated stage-I endometrial adenocarcinoma.

At the end of 19th century William Coley, a New York surgeon, was the first to describe necrosis of the tumour induced by bacterial toxins. In 1975, a protein responsible for the induction of this process was identified and called tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha). The application of recombinant DNA methodology has resulted in the production of large(More)
Endometrial carcinoma occurs mostly in post-menopausal women. Classical methods of prognostication, as FIGO stage and histopathologic grade, could be improved by applying additional techniques, utilizing molecular biology and immunochemistry. p-53 tumor suppressor gene, the most commonly mutated gene in human cancers has been shown to play an important role(More)
Breast cancer is the most common malignant cancer among women, both in Poland and worldwide. Due to the constantly increasing number of breast cancer cases, it is vital to develop effective activities in primary and secondary prevention. One of the promising methods of best value, connecting both types of cancer prevention, appears to be chemoprevention.(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate angiogenesis as an independent prognostic factor and to determine the correlation between the angiogenic index (AI) and histologic grade of the neoplastic process in patients operated on for invasive carcinoma of the uterine cervix. Angiogenesis was assessed with immunohistochemical technique using a monoclonal antibody(More)
Nonhistone proteins associated with the nucleolar organizer regions (NORs) can be visualized by a silver-staining technique on paraffin-embedded tissues. The number of black dots (AgNORs) appearing on the nuclei are thought to reflect cell differentiation and can be used as a measurement of cellular proliferative activity. In this study we tested AgNOR(More)
The aim of the present study was the ultrastructural characteristics of mast cell (MC) involved in host antitumor responses induced by local (i.t.) administration of recombinant human tumor necrosis factor alpha (rhTNF-alpha) in the primary focus of methA fibrosarcoma. MC were involved in tumor interstitium remodeling. Numerous mitochondria, well-developed(More)
Cyclophosphamide (CP) is one of the widely used cytostatic drugs, with a strong toxic influence on pulmonary tissue. Experimental works have shown that a single high dose of CP causes injury to all elements of the interalveolar septum, especially to the alveolar endothelial and epithelial cells. The aim of this work was to evaluate the influence of(More)
