Modal (MO) and mean (ME) chromosome numbers determined by cytogenetic analysis were compared with survival in 34 patients with diffuse malignant pleural mesothelioma. The patients with normal chromosome number and no clonal abnormalities (MO = 46) survived longer (median survival 17 months) than patients with clonal abnormalities. MO greater than 46… CONTINUE READING
