Selenium (Se) is an exogenous antioxidant that performs its function via the expression of selenoproteins. The aim of this study was to explore the effect of varying Se intake on the redox status of the aortic wall in young spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR). Sixteen male Wistar Kyoto (WKY) rats and nineteen male SHR, 16-week-old, were tested after being(More)
PURPOSE Literature data suggest that investigation of the circumferential resection margin (CRM) in rectal cancer surgery gives significant information for prognosis of the disease and the quality of the performed operation. The aim of this study was to analyze the clinical and morphological aspects of CRM in pT3 tumors in relation to their significance for(More)
