The transitional mucosa (TM) adjacent to carcinomas of the large bowel shows histologic and mucin histochemical changes that may indicate premalignant change and may be of prognostic value after radical resection. In this study, 10 anterior resection specimens from patients with carcinomas of the rectum and rectosigmoid were used to compare the nuclear DNA content in TM with those in cancer tissue and with those in nontransitional mucosa (N-TM; i.e., uninvolved mucosa remote from tumors showing… CONTINUE READING
