It is important to discriminate between primary and secondary lung cancer. However, often, the discriminating diagnosis of primary lung acinar adenocarcinoma and lung metastasis of colorectal cancer based on morphological and pathological findings is difficult. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical usefulness of immunohistochemistry of(More)
In the present study, we observed that the adenocarcinoma component in the mucosa was continuous with neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC) in the deeper layers; this suggests the normal course of NEC carcinogenesis at the histological level. A 72-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with a chief complaint of tarry stools. Endoscopic examination of the upper(More)
Both cyclin D1 and c-myc are key molecules in breast cancer carcinogenesis, and their transcriptional level and stability are regulated through several signaling pathways, including the Wnt signaling pathway. We performed immunohistochemical and mutational analyses of Wnt signaling components to investigate the association of Wnt signaling alterations with(More)
The mechanisms of carcinogenesis in intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) are not well characterized although alterations in several oncogenes and onco-suppressor genes have been reported to occur in ICC. In the present study, we focused on alterations in the Wnt signaling components and target genes by analyzing 24 surgically resected samples of ICC.(More)
