We have studied the expression of p53 in 206 patients with gastric adenocarcinomas. A standard immunohistochemical technique employing the CM-1 anti-p53 polyclonal antibody was applied to the routinely fixed and paraffin-embedded material from these tumours; overexpression of p53 was defined as positive nuclear staining: 46% (94/206) of gastric carcinomas(More)
It was hypothesised that one may be able to visualise field changes, which are proposed to exist around tumours, as alterations in keratin intermediate filament protein expression. Standard immunohistochemical analysis using a panel of monoclonal anti-keratin antibodies was applied to fresh tissue sections to look for subtle changes in epithelial(More)
Oral cholecystography is a well established method for studying the human gallbladder and radiological non-visualization of the gallbladder has been shown to correlate highly with the presence of disease. The exact mechanism by which diseased gallbladders fail to visualize is unclear, but may be due to a failure of the gallbladder to concentrate the luminal(More)
The growth kinetics of established human colorectal tumour cell lines (HT29, HT115 and COLO 320DM) and human diploid fibroblasts (Flow 2002) were studied in conventional culture and in microcapsules formed from alginate-poly(L-lysine)-alginate membranes. The tumour lines grew rapidly in microcapsules but, in the case of the substrate-adherent lines HT29 and(More)
