We report a rare case of a cellular neurilemoma (schwannoma) of the descending colon, mimicking carcinoma, not accompanied by von Recklinghausen's disease. The differential diagnostic problems are discussed and the possibility of a site-specific, modified Schwann cell of myenteric plexus origin is suggested.
Archival biopsy specimens from transitional cell bladder cancers (n=88) were analysed immunohistochemically for the expression of the retinoblastoma (Rb) gene protein, p53, mdm2, c-erbB-2, HLA-DR antigen and proliferation indices. An altered nuclear expression of Rb, p53 and mdm2 was observed in 55.2%, 33.3% and 18.2% of tumors respectively. Cytoplasmic(More)
Proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) is a nuclear protein maximally elevated in the S phase of proliferating and transformed cells and is recognized by the monoclonal antibody PC-10 in paraffin tissue sections. The liver regenerative process after partial hepatectomy in rats was estimated with the in vivo incorporation of [3H]thymidine into liver DNA(More)
A very rare case of enteric-type villoglandular papillary adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix associated with in situ squamous cell carcinoma in a 21-year-old nulliparous caucasian woman is reported. Adjacent to the infiltrative component of an enteric-type lesion, cervical intraepithelial glandular neoplasia (CIGN) was also noticed. Histochemical(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the expression of Fhit protein in 53 patients with ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease, as well as in 13 ulcerative-colitis-associated adenocarcinomas, and its eventual relationship with clinicopathological data and response to therapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS We performed immunohistochemistry in archival material of(More)
OBJECTIVE Our purpose was to investigate the immunohistochemical expression of Fhit protein in chronic Helicobacter pylori related gastritides, gastric epithelial dysplasia and gastric carcinoma. DESIGN Because a subset of chronic H. pylori related gastritides, precancerous lesions and gastric tumours were found to be either entirely negative or to(More)
Immunolocalization of the bcl-2 protein was investigated in 60 hepatocellular carcinomas, 10 cholangiocarcinomas. 15 metastatic adenocarcinomas as well as in 37 non-neoplastic liver lesions. The three-step immunoperoxidase method was performed in archival, routinely processed material. bcl-2 protein was not identified either in neoplastic, dysplastic or(More)
Small bowel Crohn's disease has been related to an increased incidence of small bowel adenocarcinoma, but the total number of reported cases is small. We present an interesting case of a young male patient with nephrolithiasis in childhood, an atypical intermittent history of diarrhoea also since his childhood, who developed obstructive ileus and underwent(More)
The immunohistochemical expression of C-myc p62 oncoprotein was investigated using the immunoperoxidase method and the monoclonal antibody (Mab) MYC 1-9E10 in bone marrow paraffin sections. 180 cases of multiple myeloma (MM) were studied. C-myc expression was found to correlate well with the grade of malignancy, type of myeloma and tumor cell burden (p <(More)
Cadmium is a rare element that is nevertheless widely distributed throughout the biosphere and its toxic effects are becoming potentially more serious due to industrialization. Liver regeneration can be considered as a spectacular example of controlled tissue increase. In this study we examined the effect of cadmium pretreatment, administered 24 h before(More)
