Evidence is provided to show that synaptic vesicles have an internal matrix. Suspensions of cholinergic synaptic vesicles isolated from the electric organ of Torpedo marmorata fish were permeabilized in solutions containing low concentrations of Na(+) or Ca(2+). The release of ATP from the vesicular matrix was 10 times more effective with Ca(2+) than with(More)
This study was conducted to evaluate the diagnostic usefulness of gray level parameters in order to distinguish healthy bone from osteoblastic metastases on digitized radiographs. Skeletal radiographs of healthy bone (n = 144) and osteoblastic metastases (n = 35) were digitized using pixels 0.175 mm in size and 4,096 gray levels. We obtained an optimized(More)
New clinical studies in medicine are based on patients and controls using different imaging diagnostic modalities. Medical information systems are not designed for clinical trials employing clinical imaging. Although commercial software and communication systems focus on storage of image data, they are not suitable for storage and mining of new types of(More)
OBJECTIVE To study possible association between serum CA15.3 levels and immunohistochemical expression of Bcl2 in women affected by infiltrating ductal breast carcinomas. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two hundred and fifty consecutives women with breast infiltrating ductal carcinomas, aged between 37 and 83 years were included in this study. Serum CA15.3 was(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among women. Breast infiltrating ductal carcinoma (IDC) is the most common type of breast cancer, approximately 80% of all breast carcinomas. The aim of this study was to analyze the association of tumor size, evaluated after histopathological analysis, with different clinical and biological(More)
INTRODUCTION Cancer antigen 15-3 (CA 15-3) is the most widely used serum marker in diagnosing and monitoring breast cancer. The aim of this work was to analyze preoperative CA 15-3 serum levels in patients with ductal breast carcinoma in relation to 1) clinicopathological parameters, 2) hormone receptors, and 3) tissue-based tumor markers. METHODS A group(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Invasive lobular breast carcinoma is the second most common type of breast cancer after invasive ductal carcinoma. According to the American Cancer Society, more than 180,000 women in the United States find out they have invasive breast cancer each year. Personal history of breast cancer and certain changes in the breast are correlated with(More)
