Recent studies have shown that quantification of silver-stained nucleolar organizer region associated proteins (AgNORs) is correlated with ploidy and proliferative activity in several neoplasms. The prognostic value of this marker, however, has not been well defined in epithelial ovarian carcinomas (EOCs). We studied 84 cases of EOCs in an attempt to assess… CONTINUE READING
