Nucleolar organizer regions, which are evaluated using a silver stain for paraffin-embedded sections (AgNOR), can be used as a measurement of cellular proliferative activity. In the endometrium significant differences have been seen between benign and malignant lesions. To determine if AgNOR counts are of prognostic value in endometrial cancer, we examined… (More)
