We have studied the distribution of lysozyme (Ly), a1-antitrypsin (a1AT) and a1-antichymotrypsin (a1AChy) in the normal, chronically inflamed and neoplastic gall bladder mucosa using the peroxidase-anti-peroxidase (PAP) method. Ly was absent from the normal mucosa but it was found only in areas of glandular metaplasia of true antral type and in crypts of(More)
Thirty-nine primary gastric and 22 intestinal malignant lymphomas collected from 1969 to 1980 have been studied morphologically and immunohistochemically. Eighteen of the 61 gastrointestinal lymphomas were of low-grade malignancy (9 lymphoplasmacytoid/cytic, 3 centrocytic, 6 centroblastic/centrocytic) and 43 were of high-grade malignancy (14 centroblastic,(More)
CEA was studied in paraffin sections from 50 cases of colonic and 50 cases of gastric adenocarcinoma using immunoperoxidase and immunofluorescence techniques. CEA was positive more frequently in colonic (86 per cent) than in stomach carcinoma (76 per cent). Immunoperoxidase was found to be the more sensitive technique for the detection of CEA in both(More)
Histologic material from 156 patients treated with surgery for cancer of the large bowel was studied with regard to tumor host interaction and with particular emphasis on the reactions of the regional lymph nodes. Prognostic evaluation of the tumor included the extent of the primary lesion according to Dukes' classification and the grade of differentiation(More)
Twelve cases of follicular centroblastic/centrocytic malignant lymphoma were studied for acid non-specific esterase. The majority of the lymphocytes in interfollicular areas showed a pattern of enzymatic activity consistent with a T-cell nature. Variable numbers of lymphocytes with a similar enzymatic pattern were also seen among the negative centroblasts(More)
Gastric mucosal polyps were studied in gastric biopsies, taken from 481 patients who had been operated on for benign peptic ulcer. The material was classified according to the type of operation in the following 4 groups: Billroth-II resection, gastroenterostomy, pyloroplasty with vagotomy and Billroth-I resection. As control group served 1520 nonoperated(More)
This study assessed the morphological criteria for the diagnosis of various types of lymphocytic thyroiditis in fine-needle aspirates. Of 950 aspirates, 121 revealed lymphocytic thyroiditis, including Hashimoto's thyroiditis (partly confirmed by serological or histological examination) and focal thyroiditis adjacent to neoplasms. The diagnosis of(More)
