BACKGROUND Androgen receptor (AR) expression profile in the different Gleason patterns (GP) of primary prostate cancers and nodal metastases is unknown. More information about AR distribution is needed to optimize evaluation methods and to better understand the role of AR in development and progression of prostate cancer. METHODS A tissue microarray was(More)
The study aims were to compare two models (The Pediatric Risk of Mortality III (PRISM III) and Pediatric Logistic Organ Dysfunction (PELOD-2)) for prediction of mortality in a pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) and recalibrate PELOD-2 in a Portuguese population. To achieve the previous goal, a prospective cohort study to evaluate score performance(More)
AIMS To test the prognostic significance of cyclin D1 in nodal-positive prostate cancer. METHODS AND RESULTS Nuclear and cytoplasmic cyclin D1 expression was evaluated in 119 nodal-positive prostate cancer patients undergoing radical prostatectomy and extended lymphadenectomy. Cyclin D1 was correlated with various tumour features and biochemical(More)
The uncommon simultaneous occurrence of an exuberant, angioma-like proliferation of superficial cerebral microvessels along with absence of the kidneys has been proposed to constitute a syndromic complex for which the term "meningocerebral angiodysplasia (or angiomatosis) with renal agenesis" (MCA-RA) is being descriptively used. We observed this(More)
Lichens and their secondary metabolites have attracted the interest of many researchers. Some species have been shown to contain substances with remarkable biologic activity, as antimicrobial, mainly against Gram positive bacteria; antineoplasic acting on solid and ascetic tumors, or in culture cells; antiviral; hypotensive; and spasmolytic effects. The aim(More)
Patients with nodal positive prostate cancers are an important cohort with poorly defined risk factors. CD10 is a cell surface metallopeptidase that has been suggested to play a role in prostate cancer progression. CD10 expression was evaluated in 119 nodal positive prostate cancer patients using tissue microarrays constructed from primary tumors and lymph(More)
