The Vienna classification of gastrointestinal epithelial neoplasia
The differences between Western and Japanese pathologists in the diagnostic classification of gastrointestinal epithelial neoplastic lesions can be resolved largely by adopting the proposed terminology, which is based on cytological and architectural severity and invasion status. Expand
Mucinous cystic tumors of the pancreas: clinicopathological features, prognosis, and relationship to other mucinous cystic tumors.
The clinicopathological features of 56 patients with mucinous cystic tumors of the pancreas were studied and it was concluded that the biologic behavior of MCTs is predictable on the basis of the extent of invasion. Expand
Three subtypes of gastric argyrophil carcinoid and the gastric neuroendocrine carcinoma: a clinicopathologic study.
Gastrin-promoted carcinoids represent a benign or low grade tumor disease, whereas sporadic carcinoids and neuroendocrine carcinomas are life-threatening neoplasms, independent of gastrin promotion. Expand
The N‐terminal 34 kDa fragment of Helicobacter pylori vacuolating cytotoxin targets mitochondria and induces cytochrome c release
The pathogenic bacterium Helicobacter pylori produces the cytotoxin VacA, which is implicated in the genesis of gastric epithelial lesions, and co‐transfection of DNA encoding Bcl‐2, known to block mitochondria‐dependent apoptotic signals supported the in vivo mechanism of VacA action. Expand
Histological Typing of Endocrine Tumours
Endocrine Tumours of the Adenohypophysis is a histological classification of endocrine tumours that focuses on the areas of Adrenal and Extra-adrenal Paraganglia and Parathyroid Glands. Expand
Gastric Carcinoids and Neuroendocrine Carcinomas: Pathogenesis, Pathology, and Behavior
It was concluded that correct clinicopathologic subtyping may predict the clinical behavior of gastric endocrine tumors. Expand
Recommendations for management of patients with neuroendocrine liver metastases.
The aim of the conference was to review the existing approaches to neuroendocrine liver metastases, assess the evidence on which management decisions were based, develop internationally acceptableRecommendations for clinical practice (when evidence was available), and make recommendations for clinical and research endeavours.

TNM staging of neoplasms of the endocrine pancreas: results from a large international cohort study.
Though both TNM staging systems were independent predictors of survival, the UICC/AJCC/WHO 2010 TNM stages showed very large 95% confidence intervals for each stage, indicating an inaccurate predictive ability. Expand

Characterisation of gastric ghrelin cells in man and other mammals: studies in adult and fetal tissues
It is concluded that, ghrelin is produced by well-defined cell types, which in the past had been labelled differently in various mammals mostly because of the different size of their secretory granule. Expand
