Accuracy in morphological diagnosis is the cornerstone of anatomic pathology. Proficiency with the microscope offers values to the health care system that cannot be overestimated. However, that skill is only possible if high-quality histological substrates are available for assessment, particularly focusing on hematoxylin and eosin (H&E)-stained slides. This brief review considers the several steps that are necessary to control in the preparation of high-quality H&E sections, including those… 
Computational pathology for musculoskeletal conditions using machine learning: advances, trends, and challenges
A high-level overview of machine learning applications, a general pipeline of tissue collection to model selection, and the development of image analysis methods, including some machineLearning applications, to solve musculoskeletal problems are provided.
Spatial mapping of the tumor immune microenvironment
Identification of Metabolism-Associated Biomarkers for Early and Precise Diagnosis of Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma
How recent findings of rewired metabolic networks in OSCC have facilitated early and precise diagnosis of OSCC is summarized.
Protective Role of 4-(4-Hydroxy-3-methoxyphenyl)-2-Butanone on Prostatic Cells Hyperplasia of Rats and Human, 5α-reductase Inhibition Pathway
The results showed that natural herbal zingerone decreased the prostatic tissue levels of (5α reductase and AR) in rat BPH model, which could be a promising herbal medicine for BPH treatment.
Thiolactone-Functional Pullulan for In Situ Forming Biogels.
Cell proliferation studies on chosen gels demonstrate that for normal human dermal fibroblasts (NHDFs), both gelatin and GRGDS equally support cell proliferation, while in the case of hepatocytes (HepG2), the presence of GRG DS and GHK improve cell proliferation 10-fold compared to gelatin.
The use of synthetic leu-enkephalin dalargin significantly reduced the risk of myocardial infarction caused by excessive neuromuscular stress and was mediated by opiate receptors.
Reconhecimento de artefatos durante a análise de lâminas histológicas: uma revisão integrativa
O trabalho do patologista tem como objetivo a realização do diagnóstico de uma doença (patologia) através da análise de fragmentos de tecido ou órgão retirados por procedimentos de biópsia ou
Sesquiterpene glycoside isolated from loquat leaf targets gut microbiota to prevent type 2 diabetes mellitus in db/db mice.
Findings proved that SG1 could prevent T2DM by relieving insulin resistance and inflammation and by remodeling the gut microbiota in db/db mice.
Modulation of gut microbiota and fecal metabolites by corn silk among high-fat diet-induced hypercholesterolemia mice
Corn silk (CS) is known to reduce cholesterol levels, but its underlying mechanisms remain elusive concerning the gut microbiota and metabolites. The aim of our work was to explore how altered gut


Theory and Practice of Histological Techniques
Light Microscopy, Enzyme Histochemistry, and Immunocytochemical Techniques: Diagnostic Cytopathology, Specimen Collection and Preparation.
Analysis of immunohistochemical stain usage in different pathology practice settings.
It is suggested that the use of IHC may reflect both the degree of experience of the pathologist and the pathology practice setting, as well as the commercial settings with use in a single academic center.
Fixatives and fixation: a review
The processes involved in fixation are becoming better understood in chemical and physical terms, largely due to developments in biochemistry and tanning, and will become increasingly important as the resolution of macromolecules by the electron microscope increases.
Cell and tissue fixation, 1972–1982
There have been changes in the practice of fixation over the past 10 years and it seems that the future will hold increasing diversity in fixation procedures which will demand that practitioners be well informed as to possibilities which may lend to better understanding of the problems and mechanisms of fixation.
On the chemistry of formaldehyde fixation and its effects on immunohistochemical reactions
The superiority of methacarn, alcohol or acetone over formaldehyde fixation for immunohistochemical demonstration of prekeratin, myosin, type I and type IV collagen, laminin and fibronectin can be ascribed to the irreversible alterations of tissue proteins by formaldehyde.
Differentiating the effects of microwave and heat on tissue proteins and their crosslinking by formaldehyde
Microwave irradiation of lysozyme or haemoglobin plus formaldehyde on icebath up to 30 min produced a similar electrophoretic pattern, suggesting a smaller hydrodynamic volume than expected due to intramolecular crosslink formation, not opened up under the conditions of electrophoresis.
