The immunoreactivity of a panel of poly- and monoclonal antibodies raised against different neuronal and glial antigens, was studied in paraffin-embedded specimens of five pineocytomas. Antibodies against neuron-specific enolase (NSE), S-100 protein, neurofilaments protein (NFP), glial fibrillar acidic protein (GFAP), myelin basic protein (MBP),(More)
Melanomas demonstrate chromosomal instability (CIN). In fact, CIN can be used to differentiate melanoma from benign nevi. The exact molecular mechanisms that drive CIN in melanoma have yet to be fully elucidated. Cancer/testis antigens are a unique group of germ cell proteins that are found to be primarily expressed in melanoma as compared to benign nevi.(More)
A case of uterine leiomyosarcoma with cerebral and pulmonary metastasis is presented. The patient underwent chemotherapy and multiple surgical procedures, including three craneotomies for resecting cerebral metastasis. More than four years of survival with good quality of life were obtained. An aggressive surgical therapy in the rare cases of cerebral(More)
The presence of NK-cells in a series of 40 metastatic brain tumours has been studied by means of the monoclonal antibody IOT-10. There appeared IOT-10 NK-cells in all tumours studied, but in most cases these cells represented less than 10% of the tumour infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL). In the present series, the obtained data suggest that the number of(More)
It has been reported elsewhere that liver cell suspensions injected at several locations retain some proper hepatic functions, significantly improve the survival rate of rats with different models of acute fulminant hepatic injury, correct some congenital enzyme deficiency diseases, and improve liver function in cirrhotic animals. Among several locations,(More)
Chronic wounds represent a significant medical burden. Such wounds fail to normally progress through the stages of healing, often complicated by a proinflammatory milieu caused by increased proteinases, hypoxia, and bacterial burden. As a result, several modalities, such as dressings, antimicrobials, growth factors, and human skin substitutes, have been(More)
Venous insufficiency is the most common cause of leg ulcers in the United States. Venous leg ulcers cost the health care system billions of dollars annually, and healing rates are less than 70% with standard of care; therefore, new therapies are needed to increase healing times and minimize associated costs. Non contact ultrasound therapy has been used to(More)
