Differences in DNA content and proliferation rate between adenocarcinomas of the uterine cervix and corpus.


The DNA content and the S-phase rate of 26 cervical adenocarcinomas and 100 endometrial adenocarcinomas, determined by flow cytometry, were compared. Statistically significant differences in DNA patterns were found, although only pure adenocarcinomas were studied in both groups. Peri-diploid values (1.8c-2.2c) were less common in cervical adenocarcinomas… (More)
