In the liver, total collagen accumulation during the fibrotic or cirrhotic process was measured using a methodology based on the determination of collagen amino acids in liver biopsies from adults with alcoholic liver diseases or children with biliary atresia. The results obtained with this methodology were compared to histopathological findings. Thus, it(More)
The weekly administration of 1,2-dimethyl-hydrazine (DMH) by subcutaneous injection for a period of 16-20 weeks is a well known procedure for producing colonic tumors in mice and rats. Quantitative histomorphological, histochemical and kinetic studies, as well as investigation of the significance of epithelial cell density were carried out in mice between(More)
We report a 25-year-old patient with a progressive asymmetric peripheral neuropathy of the distal lower limbs. Imaging studies showed enlargement of lumbosacral roots, plexus, and proximal sciatic nerve. Sacral plexus biopsy revealed amyloidosis associated with endoneurial edema. Immunohistochemistry with anti-prealbumin, serum amyloid A, and immunoglobulin(More)
Pinkus and Mehregan's epidermotropic eccrine carcinoma shows particular clinico-pathological characteristics which makes it different from the other cutaneous epitheliomas. A case observed on a 81 year old woman is reported. The initial lesion consisted of an ulcerating tumor on the calf, then followed by multiple verrucous papules eruption around it.(More)
Epithelial cell proliferation has been studied from a topological point of view, in the ascending colon of the mouse. The ascending colon was investigated because it offered the possibility of studying distinct mucosal sites according to whether they are situated on folds or away from the folds. Consequently fold top areas (FTA), fold side areas (FSA), flat(More)
A case of epithelia malignant changes in uterine adenomyosis is reported. The adenocarcinomatous transformation in uterine adenomyosis is rare. It is necessary to identify exactly the lesion to detect several histological tests specially the integrity of endometrium. An initial phase by atypic hyperplasia and the eventual hormonal incidence are considered.
In this work, we studied the changes in human skin collagen occurring in diabetes mellitus and liver cirrhosis. The original methodology, based on the determination of the amino acids proline, 4-hydroxyproline, hydroxylysine, glycine and alanine, allowed us to reveal in skin a change in collagen in diabetes mellitus but none in liver cirrhosis.
