Immunohistochemical analysis of VEGF and CD34 in adrenal cortical tumors

Britvin Timur , Gurevich Larisa , Kazantseva Irina , Kalinin Arian

The aim of the study was investigating of microvessels density (MD) and expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in adrenocortical tumors.Under investigation there were 23 adrenocortical tumors: adenomas – 13, ‘border’ tumors – 4, and carcinomas – 6. Immunohistochemical studied were carried out using monoclonal antibodies to both VEGF and endothelial marker CD34 (Dako). VEGF expression was estimated as a weak one (...

Role of soluble Fas-antigen (sFas), interleukin-6 (IL-6) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in adrenocortical carcinoma patients

Kushlinsky Nikolai , Britvin Timur , Kazantseva Irina , Kalinin Arian

The numerous growth factors and cytokines take part in mechanisms of tumor growth and metastasing.The aim of this study was determination of sFas, IL-6 and VEGF serum levels in 19 patients with adrenal cortical carcinoma (11 women and 8 men aged 21–72 years). The control group comprised 40 practically healthy donors (22 women and 18 men aged 19–70 years). sFas, IL-6 and VEGF before adrenalectomy and in the control were measured by ELISA. Mean I...

Primary bilateral adrenal lymphoma is extremely rare. We report a case of bilateral adrenal lymphoma developing in a 61-year-old woman. The patient presented with weakness, fever, anorexia, nausea, and weight loss. Her vital signs were as follows: body temperature 37.2 °C, pulse rate 98 beats per minute, and blood pressure 125/70 mmHg. Examination of head and neck was unremarkable. Lymphadenopathy and skin lesion weren’t found. The chest X-ray was normal, withou...
