Bone marrow stem cells participate in tissue repair processes and may have a role in wound healing. Diabetes is characterised by delayed and poor wound healing. We investigated the potential of bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stromal cells (BMSCs) to promote healing of fascial wounds in diabetic rats. After manifestation of streptozotocin (STZ)-induced(More)
Bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stromal cells (BMSCs) are multipotential stem cells capable of differentiation into numerous cell types, including fibroblasts, cartilage, bone, muscle, and brain cells. BMSCs also secrete a large number of growth factors and cytokines that are critical to the repair of injured tissues. Because of the extraordinary plasticity(More)
Two promising ancillary tests used in the diagnosis of mesothelioma include GLUT-1 immunohistochemical analysis and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) testing for the p16 deletion. This study compared the diagnostic usefulness of p16 FISH and GLUT-1 immunohistochemical analysis in the diagnosis of mesothelial proliferations in 158 cases with a(More)
A carcinosarcoma of the cardia of stomach is reported. This is a rare entity which is of further interest because of an associated but distinctly separate carcinoid tumor. The main tumor showed distinct adenocarcinomatous and spindle cell components which collided in many areas. The sarcomatous nature of the spindle cell component was confirmed by(More)
Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is frequently multifocal, which can represent either intraglandular spread from a single primary tumor or multiple synchronous primary tumors (MSPTs). To distinguish and characterize these entities, we investigated whether multifocal PTCs contain genetically similar or different mutations and have particular histopathologic(More)
OBJECTIVE The significance of high-risk HPV (hrHPV) testing in the management of women with abnormal cervical Pap tests is well known. However, the data about the hrHPV detection and its significance in abnormal vaginal specimens are very limited. The purpose of this study was to assess the prevalence of hrHPV in women with abnormal vaginal smears. (More)
An unusual case of small cell anaplastic carcinoma of the lung, presenting as a pelvic mass, is presented. Histochemical and electron microscopic findings confirmed the diagnosis. The pathologic features and unique clinical characteristics are discussed with comments on the topic of metastatic ovarian tumors.
Current American Society of Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology recommendations about human papillomavirus (HPV) triage and further management for atypical squamous cells are pertinent to cervical Papanicolaou (Pap) tests. There are limited data on HPV detection in vaginal liquid-based cytology (LBC) specimens. The aims of this study were to determine whether(More)
We report the histological findings seen in the lymph nodes draining the sites of large joint prostheses. Two patients underwent multiple prosthetic joint replacements. In one patient, the regional lymph nodes were enlarged during the revision of a total hip prosthesis, and a representative lymph node was resected. The other patient had undergone a pelvic(More)
