The purpose of our study was to determine the effect of dilution and liquid-preservation of boar sperm on oxidoreductive capability of their mitochondria. The semen was diluted with BTS extender produced from water purified by destillation or by reverse osmosis. The spermatozoa were stored over a four-day period at 16-18 degrees C. The function of sperm(More)
The predominant mode of either spontaneous or drug-induced death of cells in tumors is apoptosis. A flow cytometric method was developed in our laboratory to identify apoptotic cells, based on labeling DNA strand breaks, which appear as a result of extensive DNA cleavage by the apoptosis-associated endonuclease, with biotinylated dUTP in the reaction(More)
We examined 59 breast cancers for p53 and bcl-2 protein expression by immunohistochemistry. The results were correlated with Ki-67 immunostaining. p53-negativity was noted in 40 cases and the remaining 19 tumours were p53-positive. Thirty-six tumours showed strong expression of bcl-2 and in 23 no staining for this protein was observed. We found(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate associations between seven morphometric parameters of the nucleoli and nuclei of methyl green and pyronin Y (MG-PY) stained tumour cells of invasive ductal breast carcinoma with relapse-free survival (RFS) and overall survival (OS) time. Histological sections from 150 invasive ductal breast cancers were stained with(More)
The purpose of the study was to correlate angiogenesis parameters (microvessel count, area and perimeter) with some clinical and morphological factors in 251 invasive ductal breast carcinomas in women. Endothelium was stained with antiCD31 antibody, and measurements were made using a computerised image analysis in the whole study population and separately(More)
The oncogenes most frequently detected in human tumors belong to the ras gene family (Ha-ras, Ki-ras, and N-ras). These genes encode a group of closely related 21,000 dalton proteins termed p21. An immunohistochemical study of ras p21 expression was carried out on paraffin sections of 54 human breast carcinomas using monoclonal antibodies to p21. The(More)
AIMS To distinguish signet-ring cancer cells from foamy macrophages in the small gastric endoscopic biopsies using objective morphometric measurements of nuclei. MATERIAL AND METHODS Using computerized image analysis, the mean nuclear area, length, breadth, perimeter and roundness were analyzed in histological sections of ten gastric endoscopic biopsies(More)
We report two rare examples of dermal fibrohistiocytic stromal tumors: one case of atypical fibrous histiocytoma (AFH) and another one of atypical fibroxanthoma (AFX), which can be confused in surgical pathology diagnosis with high-grade malignant neoplasm. Histologically, a proliferation of mononuclear, spindle-shaped, or histiocytoid cells and/or(More)
The search for the genomic sequences involved in human cancers can be greatly facilitated by maps of genomic imbalances identifying the involved chromosomal regions, particularly those that participate in the development of occult preneoplastic conditions that progress to clinically aggressive invasive cancer. The integration of such regions with human(More)
