Gustav Giemsa was born in Germany in 1867, worked mainly as a chemist, and died in 1948. The staining method, which carries his name, was designed primarily for the demonstration of parasites in malaria, but it was also employed in histology because of the high-quality staining of the chromatin and the nuclear membrane, the metachromasia of some cellular(More)
Cholecystectomy is one of the most common surgical procedures. Inflammatory disease is by far the most common pathology of the gallbladder. Terms for describing cholecystitis are numerous, thus there is no uniform terminology. One hundred cholecystectomies and 10 gallbladders from autopsies were reviewed and inflammatory changes were analyzed. Chronic(More)
Five cases of primary carcinoma of the gallbladder are presented. The cases were identified after a study of 802 cholecystectomies in a period of 5 years. The patients are three women and two men between the ages of 43 and 60 years (mean, 55.8 years). In three cases the clinical diagnosis was that of carcinoma, while in two other patients the clinical(More)
It is generally accepted that the uninflammed appendix does not contain neutrophils. In view of that, we searched for the presence of neutrophils in 60 uninflammed appendectomies and compared the findings with the neutrophil count in 20 cases of early appendicitis. In the uninflammed appendix, the upper third of the mucosa showed a mean of 0.75 neutrophils(More)
The simple mucin-type truncated O-glycans Tn (GalNAc-O-Ser/Thr) and sialyl-Tn (STn) antigens are useful diagnostic markers for human colon cancer. We herein report the characterization of 1,2-dimethylhidrazine (DMH)-induced colon cancer in rats as a new model for the study of aberrant O-glycosylation products during carcinogenesis. Evaluated by(More)
