Several models have previously been proposed to predict the probability of non-sentinel lymph node (NSLN) metastases after a positive sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy in breast cancer. The aim of this study was to assess the accuracy of two previously published nomograms (MSKCC, Stanford) and to develop an alternative model with the best predictive accuracy(More)
Due to problems with identification and an incomplete understanding on the gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) before 2001, there has been a lack of comprehensive long-term population-based studies on GIST epidemiology at present date. We used data from the online registry of Czech and Slovak GIST patients (, which has been(More)
The isoelectric points of 39 Candida parapsilosis strains were determined by means of capillary isoelectric focusing. The value of the isoelectric point corresponded well with cell surface hydrophobicity, as well as with the ability to form biofilm in these yeasts.
BACKGROUND The current situation in the treatment of chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) presents a new challenge for attempts to measure the therapeutic results, as the CML patients can experience multiple leukaemia-free periods during the course of their treatment. Traditional measures of treatment efficacy such as leukaemia-free survival and cumulative(More)
BACKGROUND [18F]Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) is a powerful tool for the imaging of various lymphomas. Despite its high FDG avidity, there is little data on PET in follicular lymphoma (FL). In this work, we present findings concerning PET at staging and posttreatment evaluation in FL. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 181 PET(More)
The aim of this study was to find whether 1-Hz cerebellar repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) could affect upper limb movement in early-stage Parkinson's disease (PD). Twenty patients with PD underwent one session with real and one with sham rTMS. rTMS (1 Hz, 600 pulses) was targeted at the right lateral cerebellum. Before and after rTMS,(More)
Growing incidence of testicular cancer around the world stimulates research attempting to explain the trends. This study quantified the contribution of different types of potential risk factors for testicular germ-cell cancer (TGCC) with differentiation between seminoma and non-seminoma. A standardized questionnaire containing demographic data, pre- and(More)
BACKGROUND A retrospective, registry-based analysis to assess the outcomes of metastatic renal cell cancer (mRCC) patients treated with sunitinib and sorafenib who developed dermatologic adverse events was performed. PATIENTS AND METHODS Data on mRCC patients treated with sunitinib or sorafenib were obtained from the Czech Clinical Registry of Renal Cell(More)
BACKGROUND The classical clinical manifestation of untreated immunoglobulin deficiency comprises predominantly recurrent and complicated respiratory tract infections. Before the 1980s, little was known about the clinical manifestation of immunodeficiency in the general medical population, and also the availability of serum immunoglobulin laboratory(More)
To study associations of bullous pemphigoid (BP) with internal diseases, we conducted a retrospective case control study assessing the frequency of selected diseases - diabetes mellitus, neurological diseases, malignant tumors, benign prostate hyperplasia, hypertension and ischemic heart disease in patients with BP. 89 patients with BP, whose data were(More)
