Several reports have shown a different distribution of malignant lymphoma (ML) in Asian and Western populations. The purpose of our survey was to elucidate whether there are substantial differences in the frequencies of subtypes of ML between different geographical areas. All entities diagnosed as ML between June 1995 and December 2007 were selected(More)
EMMPRIN and fascin are important factors in tumor invasion and progression. We tested the hypothesis that expression of EMMPRIN and fascin correlate with clinicopathological parameters of renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Immunohistochemical analysis of EMMPRIN and fascin were performed in tissue microarrays of 100 surgical specimens, including 35 clear-cell RCC(More)
BACKGROUND The transpedicular route in percutaneous vertebroplasty (PVP) is a well-established approach for the treatment of vertebral compression fractures (VCFs). However, the value of simple transpedicular biopsy in VCFs is less addressed. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the value of transpedicular biopsy during PVP for uncovering the malignancy(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to examine the expression of matriptase and survivin in breast carcinoma and correlate with clinicopathological parameters. METHODS Immunohistochemical analysis of matriptase and survivin were performed in tissue microarray slides of 290 cases, including 11 normal breast tissue; 27 fibrocystic disease; 17 fibroadenoma;(More)
AIMS Osteopontin (OPN) and LIM homeobox transcription factor 1, alpha (LMX1A) are important factors related to tumour progression, invasion and metastasis in human cancers. The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that expression of OPN and of LMX1A correlate with the World Health Organization (WHO) grading system of primary brain tumours. METHODS(More)
Cortactin and fascin-1 are important factors in tumor progression. We tested the hypothesis that cortactin and fascin-1 expression correlates with clinicopathological parameters of gastric adenocarcinoma. Immunohistochemical analysis of cortactin and fascin-1 was done using tissue microarrays of 100 surgical specimens, including 20 well-differentiated, 20(More)
The aim of this study was to test whether expression of EMMPRIN and fascin correlates with clinicopathologic parameters of pancreatobiliary adenocarcinoma. Immunohistochemical analysis of EMMPRIN and fascin was performed in 100 surgical specimens obtained from Chinese patients, including 18 well-differentiated, 62 moderately differentiated, and 20 poorly(More)
Primary extraosseous Ewing sarcoma is a rare entity, especially in the spinal epidural site. Less than 20 cases have been reported in the literature. Here, we present a previously healthy 12-year-old boy who complained of low back pain, progressive gait disturbance and weakness of right lower extremity for nearly one month before admission. Magnetic(More)
OBJECT This study investigated the specific preoperative MRI features of patients with intracranial meningiomas that correlate with pathological grade and provide appropriate preoperative planning. METHODS From 2006 to 2012, 120 patients (36 men and 84 women, age range 20-89 years) with newly diagnosed symptomatic intracranial meningiomas undergoing(More)
