Does any correlation exist between the Gleason classification system and the computer-assisted microscope analysis of Feulgen-stained nuclei features in human prostate adenocarcinoma?

Abstract

Grading prostatic adenocarcinomas remains an important problem. Various systems exist (including those proposed by Gleason) but none of these systems seems able to reliably predict either the lethal potential of a tumor in an individual patient or the responsiveness of an individual tumor to various forms of therapy. The most frequently used grading system… (More)
