We report a case of diffuse hyperplastic mesothelial cells in multiple lymph nodes. Microscopically, the lymph nodes had a normal follicular pattern. The lymphatic sinus was extremely expanded, within the sinuses the epithelial-like cells proliferated actively in the form of sheets and clusters. Epithelioid-like cells had eosinophilic cytoplasm, prominent(More)
OBJECTIVE The aims of this study were to evaluate the clinical utility of a fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) assay as a non-invasive molecular test to distinguish urothelial carcinoma (UC) in the upper urinary tract (UUT) from benign lesions presenting with hematuria. STUDY DESIGN The chromosomal abnormalities of chromosomes 3, 7, 17 and 9 (p16)(More)
INTRODUCTION Pulpitis has been associated with abundant inflammatory cells, dilated blood vessels, and thickening nerve fibers histopathologically with or without severe pain clinically. On the basis of EphA7 receptor expression in inflammatory cells, the developing mouse dental pulp, and trigeminal nerve system, EphA7 may possibly be involved in local(More)
The erythropoietin-producing hepatocellular (Eph) family of receptor tyrosine kinases regulates a multitude of physiological and pathological processes. EphA1 is the first member of Eph superfamily and is involved in carcinogenesis. The aim of this study was to investigate the expression of EphA1 in prostate cancers cell lines and the tissues, then explore(More)
BACKGROUND Due to the adverse effects of cemented hip arthroplasty, uncemented stems with hydroxyapatite (HA) coating reduces these risks and enhanced integration. The concept of an extensive HA coating for the fixation of a tapered femoral stem (Corail®) was introduced, which can achieve durable biological fixation and preserve normal periprosthetic bone(More)
To investigate the roles of miR-149 in the progression of human osteosarcoma (OS). miR-149 level was upregulated in tissues from OS patients more than in normal subjects. Cell proliferation and apoptosis assays revealed that miR-149 increased cell proliferation and inhibited cell apoptosis in OS cell line (MG63). An increase of Bcl-2 gene expression and a(More)
Erythropoietin-producing hepatocyte (Eph) receptor family constitutes the largest family of tyrosine kinase receptors in the human genome. Loss of EphB6, a kinase-deficient receptor, correlated with a negative outcome in several carcinomas. This study aimed to investigate the expression of EphB6 protein and mRNA levels in colorectal cancers (CRCs) and(More)
Eph receptors play important roles in the development of cancer. The present study aimed to investigate the expression of EphA1 and its clinicopathologic significance in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). The expression levels of the EphA1 transcript and protein were compared between ESCC and matched normal mucosa in the same patient. High(More)
