The aim of the present study was to immunohistochemically investigate the prognostic value of neovascularization (expressed as microvessel count-MVC) and tumor cell proliferation (expressed as PCNA labeling index - PLI and Ki-67 labeling index- KLI) in gastric adenocarcinoma. Correlations with clinicopathologic features were also evaluated. Tumor specimens(More)
CDw75, a B lymphocyte surface antigen, is a sialylated carbohydrate epitope, which is generated by the enzyme β galactosyl α2,6 sialyltransferase (Sia-T1). In colon carcinomas, although higher levels of Sia-T1 has been described and found to be correlated with metastatic potential of tumor cells, the expression of CDw75 antigen still remains unknown.

BACKGROUND Thyroid carcinoma in childhood and adolescence is uncommon and because of the slow progression of disease the standard treatment is controversial. The aim of this study was to perform a retrospective analysis of treatment results for differentiated thyroid carcinoma in this age group treated in our clinic. MATERIALS AND METHODS From August 1988(More)
Legionella pneumonia was diagnosed in two patients receiving triple immunosuppressive drug therapy after renal transplantation. High fever was the predominant symptom of these patients. Hyponatremia, leucopenia and anemia were also observed. The disease was diagnosed by immunofluorescence antigen technique and easily controlled with erythromycin therapy.
Situated on mature B lymphocytes, CDw75 antigen is a sialylated carbohydrate epitope generated by the enzyme beta-galactosyl alpha-2,6-sialyltransferase. Although CDw75 antigen expression was found to be correlated with aggressive behaviour of tumour cells in gastric adenocarcinomas, its prognostic role still remains unknown. The objective of this study was(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate mean nuclear volume of cells in well-differentiated adenocarcinomas (20 cases) and carcinoma in situ (20 cases) of the gallbladder by the principle of estimation of the volume of particles with arbitrary shapes. STUDY DESIGN Hematoxylin and eosin-stained, 4-micron-thick, vertical sections from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded(More)
