However, whether the detection of bone marrow microlocalisation at diagnosis had implications for prognosis has not been clear. PATIENTS AND METHODS Eighty-four slides(More)
The pattern of treatment used in elderly women affected by breast carcinoma was evaluated in a retrospective study by the North-East Clinical Cooperative Group in Italy (GOCCNE). Six divisions were involved in the study. The medical records of 115 elderly women were reviewed; the women's median age was 75 years (range, 70-93). Surgery was used in 70/72(More)
We have used immunocytochemistry to identify tumor cells in bone-marrow aspirates of 40 untreated patients with small cell lung cancer and we compared the results with conventional histomorphology. The monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) used were NCC-LU-243 and NCC-LU-246 (both cluster 1). For each MAb 76 slides were evaluated. Sixty bone-marrow biopsies were(More)
