"F-fluorodeoxyglucose, being a radiolabeled glucose analogue, is a marker of glucose metabolism indicator. Since glucose uptake is increased in malignant tumors, its major application is in oncology. However, an increased 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose uptake is found in various benign tumors, granulomatous diseases, tuberculosis, inflammation, infection. A healing process may be interpreted as a false positive finding. In contrast, some types of renal cell cancers and lymphomas, neuroendocrine tumors, colonic mucinous adenocarcinomata, hepatocellular carcinomas, prostate cancer, and carcinoid tumors have low "F-fluorodeoxyglucose avidity which may give a misleading false negative result...

The aim of the study was to elucidate complex changes in Hgb, erythrocyte count, ESR, and MCH in patients with oncogynecological problems depending on the affected organ and stage of the disease. A total of 340 women were examined in the oncogynecological department of No 40 city hospital, Moscow, from 2005 to 2008. The group included 132 patients with gynecological, 177 with oncogynecological and 31 with oncologycal diseases.

PURPOSE: To evaluate the diagnostic value of CK-MB in acute myocardial infarction, to differentiate the relation between creatine phosphokinase (CPK), CK-MB and macro CK-BB (a macromolecule formed by an atypic CK-BB linked to an immunoglobulin) and to investigate the association of macro-BB with cancer. METHODS: We studied 105 patients: 47 with various tumors; 8 with acute myocardial infarction and one control group with 50 persons without cardiac or oncologyc diseases...
