BACKGROUND We investigated the relationship of the immunohistochemical expression status of manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD), catalase, glutathione peroxidase (GPx), and myeloperoxidase (MPO) in buccal mucosal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) with clinicopathologic parameters and prognosis. METHODS The expression status of MnSOD, GPx, catalase, and MPO(More)
Female urethral diverticulum is an uncommon pathologic entity and can manifest with a variety of symptoms involving the lower urinary tract. Selection of the appropriate imaging modality is critical in establishing the diagnosis. Urethrography has traditionally been used in the evaluation of urethral diverticulum but provides only intraluminal information.(More)
Primary non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of bone (PLB) is a rare disorder representing less than 1% of all non-Hodgkin's lymphomas and has rarely been reported in Taiwan. A retrospective clinicopathological study was performed according to the 2002 World Health Organization criteria and identified 14 cases during a 13-year period in 2 medical centers in southern(More)
OBJECTIVE The present study investigated the relationship between the expression of manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD), catalase, glutathione peroxidase (GPx), and myeloperoxidase (MPO) in buccal mucosal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), and the risk of second primary tumors (SPTs). STUDY DESIGN Immunohistochemistry was performed to examine the(More)
Vascular leiomyosarcoma is extremely rare and represents < 2% of all leiomyosarcomas. The frequency of occurrence of leiomyosarcomas in veins is five times more than in arteries, with approximately half of them occurring in the inferior vena cava. Although leiomyosarcomas originating from large arteries or veins have been widely reported, similar tumors of(More)
BACKGROUND OCT4, SOX2, and NANOG are major transcription factors related to stem cell self-renewal and differentiation. The aim of this study was to examine the association of OCT4, SOX2, and NANOG expression levels with the development and prognosis of patients with oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). MATERIALS AND METHODS Expression levels of OCT4,(More)
BACKGROUND The clinicopathologic and molecular features of follicular lymphoma (FL) in Taiwan have not been well defined. We conducted a retrospective study including history review, immunohistochemistry, and molecular study for the major breakpoint region (MBR) of t(14;18) and correlated these findings with survival. PATIENTS AND METHODS Sixty-five FLs(More)
Acute perforated appendicitis is a very rare initial presentation of appendiceal lymphoma. A case of primary lymphoma of the appendix in a 42-year-old female is reported here. The symptom was pain in the right lower quadrant of the abdomen. Surgical intervention was performed under clinical diagnosis of acute appendicitis. Grossly, the resected appendix was(More)
OBJECTIVES Cyclins and cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) complexes have important regulatory roles during cell cycle progression and can be used as prognostic markers in various kinds of malignant tumors. This study investigated the expression of proliferative cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), p53, Rb, p27(kip1), and cyclin D1 by immunostains in bladder tumors,(More)
DNA methylation at the 5 position of cytosine (5mC) is an epigenetic hallmark in cancer. The 5mC can be converted to 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC) through a ten-eleven-translocation (TET). We investigated the impact of 5mC, 5hmC, TET1, and TET2 on tumorigenesis and prognosis of breast cancer. Immunohistochemistry was used to assess the levels of 5mC, 5hmC,(More)
