OBJECT Acoustic neuroma is the most frequent benign tumor of the cerebellopontine angle, and surgery is still the most common form of treatment. To gain better insight into the dysregulated mechanisms causing growth of acoustic neuroma, the authors studied the proliferative activity of 34 consecutive samples by analyzing immunohistochemical staining with Ki-67 and proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), and apoptosis based on the terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase-mediated deoxyuridine… CONTINUE READING
