The familial atypical multiple mole-melanoma syndrome (FAMMM) is characterised by an autosomal dominantly inherited susceptibility to multiple atypical moles which show variable colouration ranging from black to brown, tan, red, or pink, with occasional variegation. These compound naevi may be macular or papular, with regular or irregular borders, and(More)
The Familial Atypical Multiple Mole-Melanoma Syndrome (FAMMM) is characterized by an autosomal dominantly inherited susceptibility to multiple atypical naevi. Patients with this hereditary phenotype show a strong susceptibility to cutaneous malignant melanoma (CMM). Our investigation of an extended Dutch kindred showing the FAMMM phenotype revealed a(More)
Clinical-pathologic-genetic studies were performed on 3 kindreds showing the familial atypical multiple mole-melanoma syndrome (FAMMM). Findings showed vertical transmission, including father-to-son, of cutaneous malignant melanoma and/or FAMMM moles with no sex predilection. A broad spectrum of clinical signs characterizing the phenotype ranged from an(More)
The aim of this study was to detect characteristic structural changes in the cartilage composition of osteoarthritis (OA), hereby improving the arthroscopic identification of cartilage pathology by the use of a non-destructive technique - NIRS (Near-Infrared Spectroscopy). 682 cartilage samples out of 25 knees with OA were classified visually, using the(More)
To determine bone morphogenetic protein (BMP)-2 protein and Aggrecan in osteoarthritic and healthy cartilage with special regard to localization and degree of cartilage damage 95 samples representing osteoarthritic cartilage and 17 samples out of normal cartilage were graded histological by Mankin Score and were studied by immunohistochemistry for the(More)
