  1. Association of monocyte CCR2 expression with obesity and insulin resistance in postmenopausal women.

    Clinical and investigative medicine. Medecine c... 36(1):E24 (2013) PMID 23374597

    Monocytes actively participate in inflammatory mechanisms that contribute to the development of adipose tissue dysfunction and atherogenesis. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association of monocyte CCR2 chemokine receptor expression and intracellular oxidative burst with the metabolic ...
  2. Multiple metamorphoses of CD38 from prognostic marker to disease modifier to therapeutic target in chronic lymphocytic leukemia.

    Current Topics in Medicinal Chemistry 13(23):2955 (2013) PMID 24171772

    Human CD38, an ecto-enzyme and a receptor, performs as an independent negative prognostic marker for patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), a hematological malignancy characterized by the accumulation of a population of mature B lymphocytes expressing CD5. Patients with a CD38⁺ CLL cl...
  3. Flow cytometric analysis of deep-seated lymph nodes.

    Collegium Antropologicum 34(2):377 (2010) PMID 20698105

    Flow cytometry (FC) immunophenotyping is an important tool in the evaluation of lymphadenopathy and is widely used in the diagnosis of non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (NHLs) on fine-needle aspirates of lymph nodes and extranodal sites. Because at least 80% of NHLs are of B-cell type, detection of immuno...
  4. Monocytes in metabolic disorders--opportunities for flow cytometry contributions.

    Collegium Antropologicum 34(1):319 (2010) PMID 20432766

    Chronic inflammation has arised as a major underlying cause of atherosclerosis, obesity and diabetes. It is mediated by cells of innate immune system like macrophages but also by their antecedents, circulating monocytes. Roles of monocyte subsets and different markers of monocyte activation in t...
  5. The accuracy of fine needle aspiration cytology and flow cytometry in evaluation of nodal and extranodal sites in patients with suspicion of lymphoma.

    Collegium Antropologicum 34(1):131 (2010) PMID 20432741

    Today lymphomas are defined according to a combination of morphology, immunophenotype, genetic features and clinical presentation, so beside the pure cytomorphologic analysis in diagnosis of lymphoma ancillary techniques such as cytochemistry, immunocytochemistry, molecular diagnosis and flow cy...
