BACKGROUND Although the molecular analysis of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) in archived lung cancer tissues is relatively well established, the genetic testing of cytological material has not yet become a routine. METHODS The current study used cell samples that were obtained by bronchial brushing,(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate subjects with different types of diabetes mellitus regarding their serum levels of lipoprotein(a). High serum Lp(a) concentration is associated with a high risk of coronary heart disease. Diabetic patients are prone to developing coronary heart disease. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS The subjects were 66 type I diabetic patients, 100(More)
Interferon was injected intracervically as the first stage of combination treatment in 125 cases of histologically verified squamous Ca in situ and invasive cervical carcinoma. Colpomicroscopic, cytological and histological examination was carried out before and after treatment. The pronounced effect of interferon as an antitumor agent was established.(More)
Clinical and morphological investigation involved 57 patients with adenocarcinoma in situ of the cervix uteri (poorly-differentiated (precancerous) cell carcinoma in situ (PAIS)--30; adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS)--27). Morphometric measurements using microimaging technique were carried out on 31 cytological patterns. Clinical symptoms appeared non-specific.(More)
Estrogen (ER) and progesterone (PR) receptors were assayed immunohistochemically in cytological smears and histological samples from 30 breast cancer patients. Since the results reported by the two research centers matched by 73%, it is suggested that running ER and PR determinations on cytological smears in cases of inoperable cancer, preoperative therapy(More)
Morphometric parameters were measured and specific light optic features of epitheliocyte nuclei examined in the cytologic preparations from 67 patients with various abnormalities of the cervix uteri multi-layer squamous epithelium by a present-day long-distance microimage analyzer. The most informative biometric parameters were detected, role of DNA(More)
PURPOSE The neodymium (Nd) laser irradiation has been successfully applied to the treatment of slightly elevated skin melanoma. At the same time the histologic aspects of such a treatment have not been precisely investigated. The aim of this study was to retrace the histological features in human primary cutaneous melanomas after 1060 nm high energy mono(More)
