INTRODUCTION Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) is a clinicopathological entity characterized by an aggressive clinical course, morphological features, and overexpression of cyclin D1 due to juxtaposition of the bcl-1 locus (and CCND1 gene coding for the cyclin D1) to the IgH gene. This phenomenon is caused by t(11;14)(q13;q32). The morphological diagnosis of MCL(More)
AIMS The aim of this study was to compare the effects of calorie-restricted vegetarian and conventional diabetic diets alone and in combination with exercise on insulin resistance, visceral fat and oxidative stress markers in subjects with Type 2 diabetes. METHODS A 24-week, randomized, open, parallel design was used. Seventy-four patients with Type 2(More)
BACKGROUND Pancreas transplantation (PTx) represents the method of choice in type 1 diabetic patients with conservatively intractable hypoglycemia unawareness syndrome. In 2005, the Institute for Clinical and Experimental Medicine (IKEM) launched a program to investigate the safety potential of islet transplantation (ITx) in comparison to PTx. AIM This(More)
Islet transplantation (ITx) started in 2005 in IKEM as a potentially safer alternative to pancreas transplantation (PTx), which so far had represented the method of choice in type-1 diabetic patients with conservatively intractable hypoglycemia unawareness syndrome. The aim of the study was to compare these two methods with regard to severe hypoglycemia(More)
Variability of pancreatic donors may significantly impact the success of islet isolation. The aim of this study was to evaluate donor factors associated with isolation failure and to investigate whether immunohistology could contribute to organ selection. Donor characteristics were evaluated for both successful (n = 61) and failed (n = 98) islet isolations.(More)
Genome-wide association studies have resulted in the identification of the CDKN2A/2B locus as an important genetic determinant of type 2 diabetes mellitus development. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of this locus in the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus in Czech Slavonic population. Groups of 1,149 type 2 diabetic patients and a(More)
OBJECTIVE Telmisartan improves glucose and lipid metabolism in rodents. This study evaluated the effect of telmisartan on insulin sensitivity, substrate utilization, selected plasma adipokines and their expressions in subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) in metabolic syndrome. DESIGN AND METHODS Twelve patients with impaired fasting glucose completed the(More)
