Infectious agents identified in pigs with multifocal interstitial nephritis at slaughter
One kidney was taken from each of 100 pigs at slaughter; 50 had gross lesions of multifocal interstitial nephritis and 50 had no gross lesions. Forty-nine of the affected kidneys had lesions thatExpand

Establishment of four new mesothelioma cell lines: characterization by ultrastructural and immunophenotypic analysis.
The aim of this study was to assess the biological characteristics of four new malignant mesothelioma (MM) cell lines. Since simian virus (SV)40 sequences have been recently detected in MM, SV40Expand

The value of the 1981 who histological classification in inter‐observer reproducibility and changing pattern of lung cancer
A series of 722 lung carcinomas, surgically resected and typed some years ago according to the 1967 WHO classification, was independently reviewed by 2 observers in order to test the reproducibilityExpand

Cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma with mucinous metaplasia on the sole associated with high-risk human papillomavirus type 18.
A case of superficially invasive cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the sole containing numerous mucin-producing vacuolated cells resembling "signet-ring" cells is reported. The 2 cellularExpand

Recurrent chromosome 6 abnormalities in malignant mesothelioma.
The long latency period between asbestos exposure and the onset of malignant mesothelioma (MM) suggests that a multistep tumorigenesis process occurs whilst the capability of asbestos fibres toExpand

A new insight into the histogenesis of ‘mesodermomas’—malignant mesotheliomas
A myogenic phenotype was induced in cultures of human mesothelial cells treated for 72 h with atrazine, a triazine derivative. Immunoreactivity for both myosin and myoglobin was detected in a largeExpand

Lipoblastic differentiation in a primary localized fibrous mesothelioma of the peritoneum.
Lipoblastic differentiation in fibrous mesotheliomas is an extremely rare occurrence. We present the histological and immunohistochemical features of a case of localized peritoneal mesothelioma withExpand

The in-vitro hematopoietic capacity of the adult human mesothelial cell: a model of cell differentiation induced by the structure of the microenvironment.
Upon exposure to collagen sponges, cultured adult human mesothelial cells were shown to differentiate into hematopoietic cells similar to those of the red bone marrow. This transformation wasExpand

Mitogenic effects of a mesothelial cell growth factor: evidence for a potential autocrine regulation of normal and malignant mesothelial cell proliferation.
We have investigated the growth-factor-like activity of a approximately 200-kDa, IP 8.3, cytoplasmic glycoprotein, the expression of which appears to be restricted to normal and malignant humanExpand

[The postoperative survival in pulmonary carcinomas depending on the histological type and stage].
The prognostic significance of age, sex, location of the tumor in the various lobes, size, histological type, node metastases, local extent and stage has been studied in a series of 742 surgicallyExpand
