Bacterial glutamine synthetases (GSs) are dodecameric aggregates comprised of two face-to-face hexameric rings, which form a cylindrical aqueous channel. Available crystal structures indicate that each subunit provides a 'central loop' that protrudes into this channel. Residues on either side of this loop contribute directly to substrate or metal ion(More)
The livers from five vinyl chloride workers are described. They show angioformative and hepatocellular growth disturbance in varying proportions: angiosarcoma in four cases, liver cell hyperplasia in all, hyperplastic nodules in three cases and hepatocellular carcinoma in two cases. In one case the transition between hyperplastic nodule and hepatocellular(More)
Although fine needle aspiration (FNA) of the thyroid has been found to be useful in selecting patients for surgery in most cases, the cytologic differentiation of cellular colloid nodules from follicular neoplasms has not been possible because of the scanty amount of tissue obtained by this technique and because of the infrequent preparation of cell blocks,(More)
Immunocytochemistry on fine needle aspiration (FNA) material has been mainly performed on cytologic preparations; there have been few reports on the use of FNA cell blocks. This study compared the intensity scores of immunoperoxidase staining on FNA cell block preparations from 21 breast, 12 thyroid and 10 lymph node aspirates with the scores on the(More)
Seventy patients with malignant lymphomas, including the entity known as polymorphic reticulosis (PR), involving the nose, nasal sinuses, nasopharynx, oropharynx (excluding tonsil), and larynx were studied. There were 26 cases of PR, 19 cases of lymphoma with features of PR (ML[PR]) and 25 cases of conventional lymphomas. Fourteen of the 25 conventional(More)
In a case control study in Hong Kong, 445 cases of Chinese female lung cancer patients all confirmed pathologically were compared with 445 Chinese female healthy neighbourhood controls matched for age. The predominant histological type was adenocarcinoma (47.2%). The relative risk (RR) in ever-smokers was 3.81 (P less than 0.001, 95% CI = 2.86, 5.08). The(More)
A case involving the rare occurrence of a maxillary giant cell tumour in association with Paget's disease is reported. Surgical treatment consisted of a combined intraoral and temporal approach for tumour resection with temporalis muscle flap reconstruction of the maxilla. The postoperative course was complicated by a recurrence.
Although Kimura's disease has often been considered to be identical to angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia (epithelioid haemangioma), recent studies suggest that they are different clinicopathological entities. In this study, we have made a detailed morphological comparison of 10 cases of epithelioid haemangioma and 40 cases of Kimura's disease(More)
Kimura's disease is a chronic inflammatory condition producing subcutaneous tumour-like nodules chiefly in the head and neck region. It is characterized histologically by lymphoid follicles, intense aggregations of eosinophils, vascular proliferation and fibrosis. Superficial lymph nodes and parotid glands are sometimes involved. The lesions may persist(More)
