Dipeptidyl peptidase IV, a multifunctional serine protease, is implicated in regulation of malignant transformation, promotion and further progression of cancer, exerting tumor-suppressing or even completely opposite - tumor-promoting activities. The aim of present research was to determine the serum DPPIV activity, as well as the percentages of CD26+(More)
OBJECTIVE Calreticulin is a multicompartmental protein which regulates many important cellular responses. The aim of this study was to elucidate whether the intensity and location of calreticulin overexpression in tumor cells are related to the elevated humoral immunity to calreticulin in patients with benign or malignant breast disease. METHODS This(More)
BACKGROUND The increasing prevalence of allergic rhinitis (AR) is reported worldwide. Illness perception (IP) assessment is warranted in current routine clinical practice to assist communication between patients and medical staff, and improve adherence to treatment and disease outcome. OBJECTIVE To investigate a group of patients with AR in terms of their(More)
Prostaglandins likewise leukotriens are proinflammatory mediators resulting from metabolic degradation of the arachidonic acid originating from membrane phospholipids. The most important products of enzyme cyclooxygenation of arachidonic acid are prostaglandins D2, E2, F2a, tromboxane A2 and prostacyclin. Prostaglandins express their tissue effects via the(More)
Mononuclear-phagocytic system is a diffuse network of cells which includes monoblasts and promonocytes of the bone marrow, blood monocytes, as well as free and fixed tissue macrophage cells. In different tissues and organs macrophages acquire different morphological and functional properties under the influence of the local tissue factors. Interaction of(More)
