The atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumour (AT/RT) is an uncommon tumour of the central nervous system in children, characterized by the presence of a rhabdoid cell component associated with variable combinations of primitive neuroectodermal tumour, mesenchymal and epithelial differentiation. Immunohistochemistry reveals a complex pattern of antigen expression(More)
The purpose of this study was to identify novel areas of genomic copy number change associated with transformation from follicular lymphoma (FL) to diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBL). DNA was extracted from tumour cells micro-dissected from paraffin- embedded tissue sections in 24 patients with FL and subsequent transformation to DLBL and 18 patients with(More)
Most soft tissue sarcomas are characterized by genetic instability and frequent genomic copy number aberrations that are not subtype-specific. Oligonucleotide microarray-based Comparative Genomic Hybridisation (array CGH) is an important technique used to map genome-wide copy number aberrations, but the traditional requirement for high-quality DNA typically(More)
PURPOSE Monosomy 3 (M3) and abnormalities of chromosome 8 associate with poor prognosis in uveal melanomas (UM). Although M3 has been the subject of more in-depth studies, none have intensively focused on chromosome 8. To elucidate the potential role of chromosome 8 abnormalities, array comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH) was performed on primary UM.(More)
The build up of water ice on aircraft flight surfaces poses a significant safety risk. As a result, much effort has gone into studying this problem in order to understand how individual droplets contribute to the accretion process. One approach has been to capture the moment of impact of a supercooled droplet onto a surface placed in an icing tunnel.(More)
