Using immunohistochemistry, Northern blotting and a semi-quantitative PCR technique, epidermal growth factor (EGF), transforming growth factor-alpha (TGF-alpha) and epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) expression were studied in the pancreas of N-nitrosobis(2-oxopropyl)-amine (BOP)-treated hamsters. After initiation pancreatic carcinogenesis was(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare next-generation sequencing (NGS) platforms with mutation-specific analysis platforms in a clinical setting, in terms of sensitivity, mutation specificity, costs, capacity, and ease of use. METHODS We analyzed 25 formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded lung cancer samples of different size and tumor percentage for known KRAS and EGFR(More)
T cell depletion of the bone marrow graft, the most effective method to prevent severe graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT), has resulted in approximately three times more relapses of the disease post-transplant than after non-T cell-depleted BMT. It has been hypothesized that this is caused by the development(More)
Cytotoxic T cells play an important role in graft-versus-host-disease (GvHD) and graft-versus-leukaemia/myeloma, which may occur in patients treated with an allogeneic stem cell transplantation (ASCT). Here, we describe the selection of a myeloma reactive CD4+ cytotoxic T cell-line (CTL) and two CD4+ clones from this CTL. The CTL was generated from the(More)
Lysosomal structures in liver parenchymal cells of 3 patients with iron overload and of 3 subjects without iron-storage disorders were investigated. A combination of enzyme cytochemistry--with cerium as a captive ion to demonstrate lysosomal acid phosphatase activity--and electron probe X-ray microanalysis (EPMA) was used. We were able (1) to define and(More)
Vbeta usage of muscle-infiltrating T lymphocytes in polymyositis (PM) and sporadic inclusion body myositis (s-IBM) was correlated with clinical and histopathological features. Immunohistochemical analysis was combined with complementarity-determining region 3 (CDR3) length analysis in nine muscle biopsies of eight PM patients and six biopsies of five s-IBM(More)
In the present study, the expression of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) was investigated in putative preneoplastic and neoplastic acinar cell lesions induced in the rat pancreas by azaserine, using Northern blotting, in situ hybridisation (ISH) and immunohistochemistry. EGFR protein levels were decreased in putative preneoplastic eosinophilic(More)
Transmission electron microscopy showed that in growing human teeth, the root sheath consisted of inner and outer epithelial cells. The inner epithelial cells formed a basal lamina associated filamentous layer which increased in density in coronal direction. Extensions of developing odontoblasts were in contact with the basal lamina. Direct contact with the(More)
