PURPOSE The expression of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) and bcl-2 proteins was evaluated and the prognostic significance determined in nasopharyngeal cancer (NPC) patients treated by radiotherapy. METHODS AND MATERIALS Tissue sections from 55 patients with NPC were assessed for iNOS and bcl-2 protein expression by immunohistochemistry, immunoelectron microscopy, and in situ hybridization before treatment. The markers were correlated with apoptosis (detected by terminal… CONTINUE READING
