[Analysis of malignant potential on colorectal carcinoma utilizing expression of epidermal growth factor and DNA ploidy patterns].

Human epidermal growth factor (EGF) and DNA ploidy patterns were investigated in order to elucidate malignant potential of 216 surgically resected colorectal carcinomas. EGF positive was detected in 140 out of 216 (64.8%) cases and DNA aneuploidy was found in 137 out of 216 (63.4%). No significant correlations were recognized between EGF expressions and DNA… CONTINUE READING
