Using immunocytochemical and Western blotting techniques we have demonstrated the presence of abnormally high levels of p53 protein in 8/24 (33%) of human squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) and 9/18 (50%) of SCC cell lines. There was a correlation between the immunocytochemical results obtained with eight SCC samples and their corresponding cell lines. Direct(More)
BACKGROUND Leprosy was eliminated as a public health problem (<1 case per 10,000) in India by December 2005. With this target in sight the need for a separate vertical programme was diminished. The second phase of the National Leprosy Eradication Programme was therefore initiated: decentralisation of the vertical programme, integration of leprosy services(More)
The aim of the study was to determine the incidence of p53 alterations by mutation, deletion or inactivation by mdm2 or human papillomavirus (HPV) infection in recurrent squamous cell cancer of the head and neck (SCCHN) refractory to radiotherapy. Twenty-two tumours were studied. The p53 status of each tumour was analysed by sequencing of exons 4-9 and by(More)
Based on our experience of 100 cadaveric dissections and a series of 81 clinical cases, we have assessed the indications for the posterior interosseous flap in reconstruction of the hand. Large fasciocutaneous island flaps can be harvested, even when the radial or ulnar pedicles are damaged, sacrificing only vessels of secondary importance to the perfusion(More)
