AIM To assess the prevalence of human papilloma virus (HPV) in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) in the south-eastern region of Poland. METHODS The study population consisted of 56 ESCC patients and 35 controls. The controls were patients referred to our department due to other non-esophageal and non-oncological disorders with no gross or(More)
BACKGROUND Evaluation of immature myeloid and lymphoid dendritic cells (DCs) in the peritoneal fluid (PF) and peripheral blood (PB) mononuclears of women with ovarian carcinoma (n = 47) and benign ovarian tumors (n = 37). METHODS Mononuclear cells were isolated from PF and PB, stained with monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) against DC antigens (anti-BDCA-1,(More)
BACKGROUND Cyclin A is a cell-cycle regulatory gene and its overexpression promotes tumor cell growth. Y-Box-binding protein 1 (YB1) is a transcription/translation factor involved in tumor growth, invasion, and drug resistance. We investigated whether an association exists between protein products of these genes in epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) specimens(More)
OBJECTIVE Diabetes mellitus, as a risk factor for endometrial cancer (EC), causes an increase in insulin and IGF-1 concentrations in the blood serum. The increase in insulin and IGF-1 are considered mitogenic factors contributory to cancer development. Studies suggest that metformin has preventive activity, decreasing mortality and the risk of neoplasms.(More)
THE AIM Of the study was to evaluate utility of magnetic resonance (MR) in the assessment of the women who fulfilled inclusion criteria for uterine artery embolisation as a symptomatic leiomyoma treatment and outcome of procedures. MATERIALS AND METHODS MR examination was performed in 220 patients. Uterine artery embolizations were performed in 170(More)
INTRODUCTION One of the most commonly assessed angiogenesis markers is microvessel density which is determined on the bases of specific endothelial antigen expression (CD34, CD105). Angiogenesis modulators include growth factors and their receptors (EGFR), proteases and their inhibitors, oncogenes and suppressor genes (p53). OBJECTIVE The aim of the study(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate 8-hydroxy-2-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) and 8-isoprostane levels in the peritoneal fluid (PF) of women with endometriosis. STUDY DESIGN One hundred and ten women with laparoscopically and histopathologically confirmed endometriosis and, as reference groups, 119 patients with simple serous (n=78) and dermoid (n=41) ovarian cysts were(More)
UNLABELLED Knowledge of the role of interleukin 17 (IL-17) has led to the identification of new subpopulation of T helper lymphocytes--Th17 and T cytotoxic lymphocytes secreting IL-17 (Tc17). An increasing amount of attention is paid to their role in anti-tumor immunity. AIM The aim of this study was to evaluate the percentage of peripheral blood,(More)
BACKGROUND Three-dimensional sonography is a novel diagnostic method proposed to be an additional non-invasive tool in the assessment of ovarian tumors. OBJECTIVE To study diagnostic potential of 3D sonography and power Doppler angiography in the preoperative differentiation of adnexal masses. MATERIAL AND METHODS One hundred twenty-eight women with(More)
