To differentiate neuroendocrine (NE) neoplasms arising at different levels of the gut and pancreas, the authors studied the expression of neurofilament (NF) proteins and chromogranin (CR) in normal and neoplastic NE cells of the human gastrointestinal tract (GIT) (14 ileal/jejunal carcinoids, six appendiceal carcinoids, 11 rectal carcinoids) and pancreas(More)
In the striatum, thalamus and cerebellum of a Lacertid reptile, we have found three types of cellular death during embryonic development, both at the light and electron microscopic level. The first affects the undifferentiated neuro-epithelial cells and is commonest during the early stages (E. 32-E. 36). The second corresponds to the type of 'nuclear' death(More)
Three cases of Paget's disease primarily involving the scrotum are reported. One case exhibited positive staining for prostate specific antigen (PSA) and was associated with an underlying, invasive poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma of unknown primary. The other cases were not associated with any underlying or visceral malignancy. The literature on(More)
The purpose of this study was to look for associations between a newly described class of suppressors of cytokine signaling (SSI/SOCS) and cytokine expression in the uterine cervix from HIV/HPV coinfected women. We examined the pro-inflammatory cytokines TNF-alpha and IL-6 since their expressions are linked and responsible for many aspects of both localized(More)
Three types of cell degeneration were observed at early embryonic stages of the development of cerebellar cortex of Gallotia galloti (Reptilia: Lacertidae). One is characterized by overall cell shrinkage whereas in the other two the degenerative process is recognized by a differential appearance of the cellular nucleus. We have also studied the further(More)
In view of the presentations in the First National Forum of Trainee Pneumologists, the present article focuses on infectious pleural effusions and on the study of possible markers of malignant disease in asbestos-exposed individuals. The yield of the distinct techniques for the diagnosis of tuberculous pleural effusion is assessed, with emphasis on analysis(More)
