AIM To characterise the spectrum of p53 alterations (gene mutations and protein accumulation) in a consecutive series of surgically resected oesophageal cancers, and to evaluate associations with clinicopathological findings (age, sex, tumour histology, grade, and stage), potential risk factors (alcohol, tobacco, hot beverage consumption, history of(More)
p53 alterations are the most common genetic lesions observed in lung cancers. Because of the limited size of individual studies, the distributions of p53 alterations by clinicopathological features have not been well characterized. Here, we present meta-analyses describing the occurrence of p53 alterations by patient/tumor characteristics in resected lung(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between smoking and p53 tumor suppressor gene alterations, and their association with clinicopathologic features and prognosis in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS For 111 of 119 stage I-III NSCLC patients that had been followed prospectively, tumor p53 protein accumulation(More)
The technique of alkaline sucrose gradient centrifugation was used to study newly synthesized DNA in control and ultraviolet light-irradiated mouse L, human HeLa, and Chinese hamster ovary cells. Nascent DNA molecular weight distributions did not appear to differ among the three cell lines for unirradiated cells. However, at short times after ultraviolet(More)
Tanner staging (TS), a five-stage classification indicating no breast tissue (TS1) to full breast development (TS5), is used both in health research and clinical care to assess the onset of breast development (TS2) and duration in each stage. Currently, TS is measured both visually and through palpation but non-invasive methods will improve comparisons(More)
