OBJECTIVE: Evaluation of proliferation and differentiation processes of progenitor cells in bone marrow by the com position of elements of erythroid, granulocyte and platelet branches of hematopoiesis on the treatment stages in children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), who were exposed to radiation from the Chornobyl NPP accident. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The 46 children with ALL were studied, who lived in Kyiv, Zhytomyr and Chernihiv regions. Studies were conducted before the start of chemotherapy (ChT), on the 33 day of ChT (phase I), and after the com pletion of ChT (phase II)...

Recent technological advances have revolutionized the field of structural biologists. Specifically, dramatic progress related to the development of new electron microscopes and image capture (direct electron detection camera) and the provision of new image analysis software has led to a breakthrough in terms of resolution attained using cryo-electron transmission microscopy. It is thus possible to calculate relatively quickly high-resolution structures of biological molecules whom structural study still resists to more conventional methods such as X-ray diffraction or nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)...

AIM: To discuss the theoretical framework of social constructivism and justify it s appropriateness for and compatibility with an interpretive approach to child adolescent mental health (CAMH) nursing research. BACKGROUND: Recent changes to national nursing legislation in Australia have resulted in the removal of the separate register with regulatory authorities that existed for the specialty of mental health nursing. Aspects of mental health nursing age are not easily defined, with some being tacit...

Diabetic neuropathy is a common complication of diabetes mellitus affecting 30-50% of patients and is a major cause for increased costs, morbidity and mortality. Strict diabetes control prevents this complication and may restore neurologic deficits in the early stages. Several efforts have been undertaken to alter the natural history of this complication, including the use of aldose reductase and protein kinase-C inhibitors, as well as antioxidants. Available data so far do not support the use of aldose reductase inhibitors due to safety issues and efficacy...

PURPOSE: We describe our multi-institutional experience using a laparoscopic clamp to induce selective regional ischemia during robot-assisted laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (RALPN) without hilar occlusion. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective review of Institutional Revew Board-approved databases of patients who underwent selective regional clamping during RALPN at four institutions was performed. RESULTS: In 20 patients who were treated for elective indications, RALPN with parenchymal clamping was successful in 17 (85%)...

Cytoprotection can be defined as the ability to protect cells against wide variety of damaging agents. A series of recent studies indicate that many substances participate in this process. It has been proved that different mechanisms as inhibition of oxidative stress or apoptosis mediate in cytoprotection. However, a number of mechanisms responsible for this extremely compound process remain still unknown. In this revew we discuss the scientific evidence documenting cytoprotective agents and pathways of their activity...

BACKGROUND: The American Society of Bariatric Surgery has initiated a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence Program and the American College of Surgeons has followed with their Bariatric Surgery Center Network Accreditation Program. These programs postulate that concentration of weight loss operations in high-volume centers will decrease surgical mortality and improve outcomes. METHODS: The purpose of this study was to calculate the in-hospital mortality for bariatric operations accomplished at the highest volume bariatric surgery center in the state of New Jersey...

The systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SRIS) seems to be due to the activation of the toll-like receptors, specific of the inflammatory response cells, through concrete cytosolic signals which lead to a cascade of reactions acting cytokins, growing factors and others inflammatory mediators. This kind of work revewes and discusses several classifications of animals models to study the SRIS, and propose to divide these models according to concrete goals, which can be the following ones: (1) To study innate and adaptative receptors of regulatory gens in the SRIS...

Intra-abdominal desmoplastic small round cell tumor is an extremely rare and aggressive neoplasm that predominantly occurs in young adult men; it has an uncertain histogenesis, and predominant or exclusive intra-abdominal localisation without visceral origin involvement. This tumor is characterized by its distinct morphology and its multiphenotypic differentiation. We report a case of an intra-abdominal desmoplastic round cell tumor in a 24 years old woman. In the light of this case, the clinical morphological immunohistochemical and molecular of this rare desease are revewed...
