The Role of Inflammatory Response in Stroke Associated Programmed Cell Death
Stroke represents devastating pathology which is associated with a high morbidity and mortality. Initial damage caused directly by the onset of stroke, primary injury, may be eclipsed by secondaryExpand

The prediction role of indexes of circulating adipokines for common anthropometric and nutritional characteristics of obesity in the obese Central European population.
AIMS This study was designed to investigate the relationship between 8 selected adipokines (leptin, leptin receptor, adiponectin, agouti-related peptide, omentin, visfatin, adipsin and resistin),Expand

Pre-treatment VD levels and VDR receptors as potential predictors of occurrence and overall survival in paediatric patients with solid tumours—a single institution pilot study
Recently, vitamin D has been recognized as an important player in the immune system, and multiple studies suggested its involvement in cancer, too. The aims of this study were to investigate selectedExpand

Allelic variants in vitamin D receptor gene are associated with adiposity measures in the central-European population
BackgroundThere is an increasing body of evidence suggesting that vitamin D is involved in ethiopathogenesis of obesity and therefore the aim of the study was to investigate whether 5 selected SNPsExpand

Brain-derived neurotrophic factor and ciliary neurotrophic factor in maternal plasma and umbilical cord blood from pre-eclamptic and physiological pregnancies
The aim of the study was to investigate the circulating levels of ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF) and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in maternal serum and umbilical cord blood fromExpand

B-cell activating factor (BAFF) — a new factor linking immunity to diet?
B cell activation factor (BAFF) is a recently discovered member of the TNF ligand superfamily secreted by adipocytes, previously linked to autoimmune and lymphoproliferative disease. The aim of thisExpand

The common polymorphism Val109Asp in the omentin gene is associated with daily energy intake in the Central-European population
Abstract Background Omentin is an adipokine expressed predominantly in visceral adipose tissue, with adipose tissue stromal cells being the main source. Very little is known about the relationshipExpand

Early Inflammatory Response in the Brain and Anesthesia Recovery Time Evaluation After Experimental Subarachnoid Hemorrhage
The main objective was to evaluate, whether the subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH)-associated early inflammatory response has focal or global character, i.e., whether areas distant to hematoma may beExpand

The presence of B-cell activating factor (BAFF) in umbilical cord blood in both healthy and pre-eclamptic pregnancies and in human breast milk.
B-cell activating factor (BAFF) is an important immune regulator that was recently reported to be secreted by placenta. The aim of the study was to investigate the presence of BAFF in umbilical cordExpand
