The expression of HLA-DR and of the receptors for transferrin and interleukin-2 was histochemically analyzed for 27 human lung carcinomas, 3 mesotheliomas, and 3 thymomas by use of the monoclonal antibodies CLONAB Tf-R, Il-2R, and LN3. In addition, a pan B-cell antibody (CD-19) and a pan T-cell antibody (CD3) were applied. The transferrin receptor was found(More)
The balance between metabolic activation and detoxification is critical in determining the susceptibility to lung cancer upon exposure to the tobacco specific nitrosamine, 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone (NNK). Carbonyl reduction of NNK, followed by glucuronidation, is the main detoxification pathway of this lung carcinogen in humans.(More)
In vivo invasion of human carcinoma of the lung into the cartilage of the bronchus was studied by light microscopy. Tumor spread into the cartilage was found in 26% (60/229). It occurred in 38/128 epidermoid carcinoma (30%) and in 14/55 adenocarcinoma (25%), but was observed in only 1/17 large cell anaplastic carcinoma (6%). Degradation of cartilage matrix(More)
Primary testicular diffuse large B-cell lymphomas (tDLBCL) are rare neoplasms with few comprehensive studies conducted so far. We aimed to systematically characterize the phenotype of tDLBCL. Forty-five patients from three Swiss hospitals diagnosed with tDLBCL between 1972 and 2009 were reviewed and included in this study. A tissue microarray was assembled,(More)
