Carbohydrate-rich tissue components in lung cancer and in normal bronchial tissues: a histochemical study


The carbohydrate-rich compounds in bronchopulmonary neoplasms and in non-neoplastic tissue have been characterized histochemically. Glycogen was present in few epidermoid and large-cell carcinomas. Epithelial mucosubstances were produced by adeno-, mucoepidermoid, and large-cell carcinomas. The mucosubstances produced by carcinoma cells had characteristics… (More)
