Proteoglycans and WT1 as markers for distinguishing adenocarcinoma, epithelioid mesothelioma, and benign mesothelium.

Abstract

Malignant mesothelioma is a tumour frequently accompanied by an effusion with elevated hyaluronan levels. To distinguish malignant mesothelioma, adenocarcinoma, and reactive benign mesothelium with cytological and histological methods including immunocytochemistry is a major diagnostic challenge. The Wilms' tumour susceptibility gene 1 (WT1), expressed… (More)
