In situ hybridization (ISH) and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for several common HPV types were performed on 41 cases of vulvar dystrophy, 19 of which were associated with previous or simultaneous invasive squamous cell carcinoma of the vulva. Three of the 19 cases (16%) of dystrophy associated with cancer were found to contain HPV-16/18 by PCR. In(More)
Various investigators have reported rapid detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) in clinical samples by polymerase chain reaction (PCR). To improve the specificity and efficiency of PCR, the authors adopted a variety of conditions, then analyzed sputum specimens from 217 patients clinically suspected of having MTB. Sputum samples were sonicated to(More)
BACKGROUND Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is usually monitored by the level of alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and histopathological changes in liver biopsy specimens. However, accumulating data indicate these parameters are not always correlated with disease progression or the response of HCV infection to therapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Using the(More)
Long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) H19 is found to be overexpressed and associated with clinicopathological features in patients with cancer. To evaluate the clinical value of lncRNA H19 as a prognostic marker in human cancers, this meta-analysis collected all relevant articles and explored the association of H19 expression levels with prognosis in patients with(More)
