We developed a staining protocol for demonstration of androgen receptor (AR) in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue sections. The method is based on the antigen retrieval microwave (MW) heating technique. Results are compared with different types of enzyme digestion pre-treatments. The strongest immunostaining signal and clearest background were(More)
Seventy-three transitional cell carcinomas of the bladder were analyzed by immunohistochemistry for p53 nuclear accumulation, and the results were compared to mutations detected in the p53 gene by single strand conformational polymorphism analysis (SSCP) and DNA sequence analysis. Immunohistochemical studies were performed on formalin-fixed,(More)
BACKGROUND This study was designed to ascertain whether immunohistochemical methods could improve the detection of metastases in primary breast-cancer patients whose axillary lymph nodes were classified, by conventional methods, as disease free. METHODS Ipsilateral lymph nodes (negative for metastases by routine histology) from 736 patients (participants(More)
Metastases to the female breast are rare and those to the male breast are even rarer. Differentiating primary from metastatic breast carcinoma is important for rational therapy and avoidance of unnecessary radical surgery. Data on five women and two men with metastases to the breast are presented here. The primary tumours in these seven cases were as(More)
OBJECTIVES A large proportion of patients with operable lung carcinoma (no evidence of systemic spread of tumor) develop metastatic disease after primary therapy. More sensitive and specific methods are needed to identify patients at highest risk for recurrence who may benefit most from adjuvant therapy, while sparing those patients who do not require such(More)
This paper presents a novel monoclonal antibody shown to react with cytoplasmic antigens in various dengue infected human frozen organs from autopsy and necropsy specimens. Strong reactivity was found in hematopoietic cells, including immunoblasts, lymphocytes, plasma cells and macrophages of spleen, lymph node, lung, kidney and stomach. Strikingly, strong(More)
BACKGROUND Mammary metaplastic carcinoma encompasses epithelial-only carcinoma (high-grade adenosquamous carcinoma or pure squamous cell carcinoma), biphasic epithelial and sarcomatoid carcinoma and monophasic spindle cell carcinoma. AIM To evaluate the clinicopathological features of a large series of 34 metaplastic carcinomas. METHODS 10(More)
Ultrasonography (US) and mammography are the two basic techniques for routine imaging in the diagnosis of breast diseases. A wide variety of breast conditions such as lipoma, hamartoma, cyst, fibroadenoma, phyllodes tumour, haematoma, abscess and carcinoma can result in solitary or multiple giant masses. These conditions may appear similar on physical(More)
Different variations of the antigen retrieval technique using different retrieval solutions have been evaluated for their effectiveness in restoring the antigenicity of six intranuclear antigens, each of which is a potentially valuable prognostic indicator in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue sections. The results of immunohistochemical staining for(More)
The present study compared two microwave based antigen-retrieval solutions in their ability to unmask antigenic determinants in formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded tissues for Immunostaining. In this regard, two widely used antigen-retrieval solutions, namely 0.05 M glycine-HCl buffer, pH 3.6, containing 0.01% (w/v) (EDTA) and 0.1 M sodium citrate buffer,(More)
