A role of heat shock protein 27 (HSP27) as a potential biomarker has been reported in various tumour entities, but comprehensive studies in pancreatic cancer are lacking. Applying tissue microarray (TMA) analysis, we correlated HSP27 protein expression status with clinicopathologic parameters in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma specimens from 86 patients.(More)
Modifications of several surgical adjuncts are presented: a balanced microscope stand with mouthpiece and hand controls, a piston release operating stool, a support device for resting the surgeon's arms, a table mounted arm with coupling head for attaching self-retaining brain retractors, fish hook retractors, suction tubes, bipolar forceps, aneurysm clips(More)
INTRODUCTION Agonistic antibodies targeting TRAIL-receptors 1 and 2 (TRAIL-R1 and TRAIL-R2) are being developed as a novel therapeutic approach in cancer therapy including pancreatic cancer. However, the cellular distribution of these receptors in primary pancreatic cancer samples has not been sufficiently investigated and no study has yet addressed the(More)
This study was prepared with the objective of directing the attention of the medical community to advances during the last decade in the operative treatment of cerebral ischemia, intracranial aneurysms, and cerebral and spinal vascular malformations. The requirements for specialized personnel, facilities, and instrumentation are detailed for those who are(More)
PURPOSE It has not yet been clearly defined whether anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) expression can be detected in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). METHODS Within a retrospective study, archival PDAC surgical specimens were screened for ALK expression in tumor and normal tissue by immunohistochemistry (IHC) with the use of a specific ALK detection(More)
