BACKGROUND To evaluate the usefulness of this biomarker in the diagnosis of cases of cervical neoplasia we studied the immunohistochemical expression of p16INK4a in a large series of archival cervical biopsies arranged into tissue microarray format. METHODS TMAs were constructed with tissue cores from archival formalin fixed, paraffin-embedded donor(More)
The breakdown of DNA and RNA in decomposing human tissue represents a major obstacle for postmortem forensic molecular analysis. This study investigated the feasibility of performing PCR-based molecular analysis of blood and muscle tissue from 45 autopsy cases with defined postmortem intervals ranging from one to more than 14 days. It was not possible to(More)
Published studies have reported widely variable incidence of HER2/neu (c-erbB-2) protein expression and HER2/neu (c-erbB-2) gene amplification in cervical carcinoma. We examined tissue microarrays (TMAs) constructed from 814 formaldehyde-fixed paraffin-embedded archival specimens of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN)1 (n = 262), CIN2 (n = 230), CIN3(More)
Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, and in particularly infection with HPVs 16 and 18, is a central carcinogenic factor in the uterine cervix. We established and optimized a PCR assay for the detection and discrimination of HPV types 16 and 18 in archival formaldehyde fixed and paraffin embedded (FFPE) sections of cervical cancer. Tissue blocks from 35(More)
BACKGROUND A retrospective nationwide study of cancer of the nasal vestibule was conducted to evaluate classification systems and prognostic factors for treatment outcome. METHODS Patients treated between 1993 and 2002 at head and neck oncology centers in Denmark were included. RESULTS The 5-year results were locoregional control 67%, overall survival(More)
