Tests for antiperinuclear factor (APF) demonstrable by indirect immunofluorescence (IF) on smears of human buccal mucosal cells and for antibodies to keratin (AKA) detected on cryostat sections of rat oesophagus were performed on serum from 102 cases of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and 117 controls. APF was detected in 92% of the cases of RA; positive tests(More)
BACKGROUND Higher proliferation is commonly observed in cancer cells. Apoptosis can be a useful measure of a tumor cell kinetic. Alteration of the balance between proliferation and apoptosis is associated with cancer. AIM To study proliferation and apoptosis on gastric cancer and in intestinal metaplasia. METHODOLOGY Twenty-two samples from gastric(More)
The excision repair cross-complementation 1 (ERCC1) enzyme plays an essential role in the nucleotide excision repair pathway and is associated with resistance to platinum-based chemotherapy in different types of cancer. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the clinicopathological significance of ERCC1 expression in breast cancer patients. We(More)
BACKGROUND Although thyroid dysgenesis is the most common cause of congenital hypothyroidism (CH), its molecular basis remains largely elusive. Indeed, in only a minority of cases with thyroid dysgenesis (2%-3%) was it possible to identify an underlying genetic defect. The objective of this study was to screen the PAX8 gene and the PAX2 gene in a family(More)
