The growth of a neoplasm and its ability to form metastases is a multistep process dependent on angiogenesis and immunological reactions of the organism. In this process adhesive factors are also involved. The aim of this work was estimation of the concentration of soluble intercellular adhesion molecules (sICAM-1) and vascular cellular adhesion molecules(More)
BACKGROUND We assessed HMGI(Y) gene expression in thyroid tumors, control thyroid tissue and in the blood of patients diagnosed with papillary and follicular thyroid cancers to try to differentiate between malignant and benign disease. METHODS HMGI(Y) gene expression was analyzed by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) in 60 cases of(More)
C-ERBB2 and P65 gene expression was investigated by reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction method (RT-PCR) in thirty follicular thyroid cancers and twenty follicular adenomas. Additionally, the cancers and adenomas were stained by immunohistochemistry for the expression of their protein products. We did not observe P65 gene expression in any of the(More)
The aim of the study was an evaluation of expression of D1 cyclin and Ki-67 proteins in tissue of human papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) in a group of papillary microcarcinomas and in a group of PTC with a degree of staging higher than pT1a in TNM classification. We performed immunohistochemical staining and found no statistical differences between groups.(More)
Forty-nine follicular adenomas and 11 follicular carcinomas of the thyroid were investigated by immunohistochemistry for the expression of p53 protein and proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA). The DNA ploidy and the S-phase fraction (SPF) of the neoplasms were analysed by flow cytometry. Twelve adenomas (24 per cent) and six carcinomas (55 per cent)(More)
OBJECTIVES Neoplastic angiogenesis is an essential stage of growth, progression and invasion of solid tumours. The process of basement membrane degradation and remodelling of the extracellular matrix (EMC) involves proteolytic enzymes called metalloproteinases. Among the numerous proteolytic enzymes of this group the key role is played by(More)
NIS gene is located on chromosome 19 and encodes 643 amino acid protein. It belongs to membrane Na+ dependent glucose symporter proteins family. In normal thyroid is located in basolateral membrane of thyreocyte. It plays a main role in concentrating of iodine in thyreocyte and thus in thyroid hormones synthesis. It was proved that NIS expression influences(More)
Sixty-two follicular adenomas of the thyroid were investigated by immunohistochemistry for the expression of p53, MDM2 and bcl-2 proteins. The wild type of 393 aminoacid nuclear p53 phosphoprotein is the product of a gene located on the short arm of chromosome 17. The p53 protein controls the growth of transformed cells in a culture and thus termed a(More)
Paraffin-embedded tissue slides from 88 infiltrating ductal breast carcinoma were examined by immunohistochemistry technique with the use of monoclonal antibody against human p65 antigen and polyclonal antibody against p65-like protein present in fetal bovine serum. Immunohistochemical analysis of expression of growth factor receptors (EGFR), protein(More)
