The authors study nucleolar organisers (Ag NORS) in ten cases of urothelial tumours, graded as grade I in five cases, grade II in two cases, grade III in two cases and intermediate grade II-III in one case. Study of the NOR index showed a mean value of 3.89 for grade I, 4.66 for grade II, 5.88 for grade III and 4.90 for the intermediate grade II-III.(More)

Human herpesvirus 8 (HHV8) is a herpesvirus that is always associated with Kaposi sarcoma. An enzyme-linked immunoenzymatic assay was used to detect antibodies to the latent nuclear antigen of HHV8 in kidney transplant patients and kidney transplant candidates from Tunisia. A significantly high HHV8 seroprevalence was documented; 17% of kidney transplant(More)
