To determine the relationship between the expression of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and the presence or type of human papillomavirus (HPV) in cervical squamous intraepithelial lesions (SIL), paired colposcopically directed cervical biopsies were obtained from 88 patients referred for abnormal Papanicolaou smears. One biopsy was formalin-fixed(More)
In order to determine the distribution of human papillomavirus (HPV) types and to compare in situ hybridization (ISH) with Southern blot hybridization (SBH), paired colposcopically directed cervical biopsies and cervical-vaginal lavages were obtained from 92 women referred for abnormal Pap smears. The lavages and one of the biopsies were snap-frozen and(More)
This study describes the prognostic role of polymerase chain reaction detected human papillomavirus (HPV) in Stage IB cervical cancer patients treated with radical hysterectomy and pelvic and paraaortic node dissection. All tumors were confined to the cervix and all margins and nodes were disease free. Twenty-one patients were analyzed: 6 patients recurred(More)
The following points summarize the important diagnostic and prognostic features of peritoneal cytology. Malignant cells in peritoneal fluid are most often indicative of secondary malignancies with short periods of patient survival except in some early-stage tumors of the female genital tract. Atypical reactive mesothelial cells can simulate malignant cells.(More)
High-resolution electrospray ionization Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry is successfully used in the detailed molecular analysis of aged macadamia nut oils. The results are consistent with peroxide values, the current industry measure for rancidity, and provide detailed molecular information on the oxidative and hydrolytic(More)
A 50-year-old, black woman presented with a 1-cm, polypoid lesion on the posterior edge of the urethral meatus that had the gross appearance of a urethral caruncle. The histologic features, however, revealed a superficially ulcerated lesion composed of colonic-type mucosal glands with focal regenerative atypia in response to inflammation. A similar(More)
The modification of electrodes with the tripeptide Gly-Gly-His for the detection of copper in water samples is described in detail. The tripeptide modified electrode was prepared by first self-assembling 3-mercaptopropionic acid (MPA) onto the gold electrode followed by covalent attachment of the tripeptide to the self-assembled monolayer using carbodiimide(More)
Villoglandular adenocarcinoma of the cervix is a distinct histologic type of cervical cancer. Fewer than 60 cases have been reported in the literature. Previous reports suggest that, due to the highly favorable prognosis of this rare histologic type of cervical cancer, conservative surgical therapy with cervical conization or extrafascial hysterectomy alone(More)
