Article
The objectives of the study were to analyze the dosage of a cytokine panel (IL2, IL5, IL6, IL8, IL10, and TNF-α) in the peritoneal fluid and relate the dosage of these cytokines to prognostic para- meters and survival in ovarian cancer. Peritoneal fluid was collected intraopera- tively from 29 patients with primary malignant ovarian neoplasia. Cyto...

The aim of this study was to evaluate cytokine levels (IL-2, IL-8, TNF-α, IL-5, IL-6 and IL-10) in the peritoneal fluid in non-neoplastic tumours, benign ovarian neoplasms and malignant ovarian neoplasms. Peritoneal fluid or ascites was collected from 117 patients with neoplastic and non-neoplastic ovarian tumours. Cytokine levels were assessed by...

TNF is produced by several cell types, especially those that participate in inflammatory responses such as neutrophils, macrophages, monocytes, T cells and Natural Killer cells, and their production occurs after specific stimuli. It is a proinflammatory cytokine and plays an important role in cellular immunity. Initially, TNF was described as an in...

The aims of the study were to compare the levels of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) and its soluble type I (sTNF-R1) and type II (sTNF-R2) receptors detected in intracystic liquid and serum from benign and malignant ovarian neoplasms and to relate them to prognostic factors in epithelial ovarian cancer. The patients were divided into benign ova...

Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death among gynecologic tumors because in most of the cases (75%), the disease is diagnosed in advanced stages. Screening methods are not available since the disease is rare, and the tested methods, such as ultrasound and CA125, were not able to decrease the mortality rate for this type of cancer. This article...

Background/aims: Growth differentiation factor 15 (GDF-15) is induced by pro-inflammatory cytokines. Higher levels of GDF-15 have been associated with malignancy. The aim of the study was to evaluate both tissue and serum levels of GDF-15 in ovarian neoplasms. Methods: A cohort study evaluated 31 patients with benign ovarian tumors and 34 patien...

Cancer of the cervix is the most common malignancy diagnosed during pregnancy, with an incidence of 1-10 cases per 10,000 pregnancies. The desire of patients to maintain pregnancy and subsequent fertility is a difficult target to be achieved and should be widely studied, since it depends on the stage of disease, gestational age at diagnosis, and th...
