The results of mapping of the urinary bladder are reported and discussed. It has been shown that Brunn's nests, cystitis cystica, and the vaginal type of squamous metaplasia are commonly found in normal bladders and thus cannot be considered as precancerous lesions. Mapping of cancerous bladders and related histologic and clinical observations strongly(More)
BACKGROUND Epidemiologic studies have suggested that vitamin E and beta-carotene may each influence the development of prostate cancer. In the Alpha-Tocopherol, Beta-Carotene Cancer Prevention Study, a controlled trial, we studied the effect of alpha-tocopherol (a form of vitamin E) and beta-carotene supplementation, separately or together, on prostate(More)
Flow cytofluorometric analysis was used to determine the distribution of the DNA content in cells from selected areas of normal human brain and in benign and malignant brain tumors. Propidium iodide was employed as DNA fluorochrome and the analysis was carried out on a suspension of single cells. Normal, nonstimulated human lymphocytes were used as diploid(More)
Alkaline phosphatase activity in several cultured primary human intracranial tumor cells varied over a relatively wide range, and there was no correlation between specific activity and the type of tumor from which the cultures were derived. The enzyme was thermolabile, and its activity was strongly inhibited by l-bromotetramisole, levamisole, and(More)
Analysis of DNA content in cultured cells derived from 5 benign and 8 malignant human brain tumors was performed by flow cytometry, using propidium iodide as fluorochrome. Normal, non-stimulated human lymphocytes were used as controls. Cells harvested from the first confluent subculture had DNA distribution histograms similar to those of a replicating,(More)
A simple and inexpensive method of cell preparation for scanning electron microscopy (SEM) is described. This method allows for rapid identification of the same cells under the light microscope and by SEM. The method does not perceptibly alter the ultrastructural surface features of target cells. It is applicable to all cells in suspension, and its(More)
