 Two cases of hepatoid adenocarcinomas were studied with an in situ hybridization technique (ISH) using a RNA probe for human albumin mRNA. In case 1 the urinary bladder of a 67-year-old woman was affected; in case 2 the tumour was located in the gastric antrum of an 80-year-old woman. In neither case had alpha fetoprotein (AFP) been determined(More)
Dopamine-agonist cabergoline (CB) reduces prolactin (PRL) secretion and tumor size in 80% of patients with prolactin-secreting adenomas (PRL-omas) by binding type 2 dopamine receptor (DRD2). The mechanisms responsible for resistance to CB remain largely unknown. To assess the association of DRD2 with sensitivity to CB, TaqI-A1/A2, TaqI-B1/B2, HphI-G/T and(More)
 Hepatocytes are rich in mitochondria, which play an important role in hepatic metabolism. In certain pathologic conditions (most often alcoholic liver disease) mitochondria became enlarged; nevertheless, even in these conditions they are hardly detectable on light microscopy. Recently an antimitochondrial antibody (mAM), which recognizes a 60-kDa protein,(More)
Pm: A new hydrogel composed ofiota-carrageenan/polyvinylpyrrolidon (i-cgn/pvp) was tested in rabbit eyes to dctennine its intraocular tolerance and to evaluate its suitability as a vitreous substitute. MefhodF: Aver pars-plana lensectomy and pars-plana vitrectomy 1,Sml of i-cgn/pvp were injected into 4 eyes of 4 rabbitsThe untreated contralateral eyd served(More)
 Human Cytomegalovirus (HCMV) UL73 encodes for a polymorphic structural glycoprotein, gpUL73(gN), conserved among herpesviruses. This study analyzed the intracellular and intraviral localization of gpUL73 by immunoelectron-microscopy comparing the reactivity of two different antibodies. We found that gN is an envelope component of the mature viral particle(More)
