Manipulation of Host Cell Death Pathways during Microbial Infections
Viral and microbial infections often elicit programmed cell death as part of the host defense system or as a component of the survival strategy of the pathogen. It is thus not surprising that pathogens have evolved an array of toxins and virulence factors to modulate host cell death...
[Foodborne infections and intoxications in Poland in 2008].
A total of 12 217 bacterial foodborne infections and intoxications were registered in 2008 (incidence 32.1/100 000 population). Unlike bacterial infections, the incidence of viral foodborne infections increased in the recent years (2008 - 85.4 vs. 2007 - 57.1; 2006 - 54.21; 2005 - 32.8, and median 2...
Cutaneous CD30 lymphoproliferative disorders and similar conditions: a clinical and pathologic prospective on a complex issue.
We elaborate on the diagnosis of CD30 positive cutaneous lymphoproliferative conditions including the various clinical and pathological presentations, our understanding of its pathomechanisms and prognostic implications. The most common reactive conditions that can simulate CD30 lymphoproliferative...
Avoiding the void: cell-to-cell spread of human viruses.
Trends in prevalence of viral infections in Australian musculoskeletal tissue donors and projections of incidence and residual risk, 1993-20...
[Anthropozoonoses and other inter-specific infections: breaches in the "species barrier"]
Infectious outbreaks in human populations frequently occurred during the last decades. Most of these epidemics were emerging or re-emerging diseases and about 75% of them were caused by animal pathogens mainly from wild animal species. Thus the "species barrier" dogma seems to be frequently in the w...
Human respiratory syncytial virus and other viral infections in infants receiving palivizumab
Among 116 enrolled patients, 51 (44%) had > or = 1 episode of ARTI for a total of 93 visits. At least one virus was identified in 33 (36%) of the 93 NPA samples; HRSV accounted for 11 (33%) of confirmed viral etiologies. Compared to subjects who had other viral ARTI, HRSV-positive subjects had less...

TNFalpha and reactive oxygen species in necrotic cell death.
Death receptors, including the TNF receptor-1 (TNF-RI), have been shown to be able to initiate caspase-independent cell death. This form of "necrotic cell death" appears to be dependent on the generation of reactive oxygen species. Recent data have indicated that superoxide generation is dependent o...
