It is customary to distinguish “primitive”, “classic” and “compact” (“burned out”) senile plaques in Alzheimer's disease and senile dementia of the Alzheimer type (SDAT). Primitive plaques are characterized by altered neurites without accumulation of amyloid, classic plaques by an amyloid core surrounded by altered neurites and compact plaques by amyloid(More)
A mouse monoclonal antibody (mAB lu-5) was prepared using a lung cancer cell line as an antigen. The selected clone produces an IgG with a gamma-1 heavy chain and a kappa-light-chain. Immunohistochemical testing of mAB lu-5 on 117 normal tissue biopsies and 474 tumours revealed reactivity with an intracytoplasmic, formaldehyderesistant antigen present in(More)
Light microscopic immunohistochemical investigations were performed on neurofibrillary tangles (NFT) in four histologically confirmed cases of Alzheimer's disease (AD) and in five patients with a progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP). The antibody panel included antisera to the neuronal microtubule-associated protein, tau, and to isolated paired helical(More)
Section of formaldehyde-fixed paraffinembedded cortical and hippocampal brain tissue from five cases with senile dementia of Alzheimer type (SDAT) and five cases with Pick's disease (PD) were immunostained with the monoclonal antibodies (mabs) 147, RT 97, BF 10 and 8D8 with and without pretreatment with alkaline phosphatase (AP) or trypsin (Tr). The mabs(More)
Stapled transanal rectal resection (STARR) was developed to correct intussusception causing obstructed defecation. Some patients, however, do not profit from this operation as anticipated. We aimed to study the relationship between functional outcome and rectal morphology after STARR. Fifteen consecutive female patients with median age of 64 years(More)
Clinical outcomes for frictional telescopic crowns supporting removable prostheses in patients with severely reduced dentitions with one to three remaining teeth per arch have been inadequately documented. Seventy-four patients with severely reduced dentitions received 82 telescopic removable partial dentures that were supported by 173 frictional telescopic(More)
Light microscopic immunohistochemical investigations were performed on neurofibrillary tangles (NFT) in four histologically confirmed cases of Alzheimer's disease (AD) and in five patients with a progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP).

UNLABELLED BACKGROUND/MATERIAL AND METHODS: In 59 rat mandibular glands we investigated the distribution of extracellular matrix proteins (EMP) in rat salivary gland tumors. The animals differed in age and pretreatment status (irradiation versus no irradiation). For immunohistochemical analysis we used polyclonal EMP antibodies [anti-laminin (AL),(More)
