Murine alpha-2-macroglobulin increase during inflammatory responses and tumor growth
(Inflammation Research, 1999-09-08) [Artigo]
Objective and Design: To determine the alpha-2-macroglobulin (alpha2M) levels in mice during acute and chronic inflammatory responses. Materials and Methods: Inflammation was induced by one of the following stimuli: ...
Effects of uracil calculi on cell growth and apoptosis in the BBN- initiated Wistar rat urinary bladder mucosa
(Teratogenesis Carcinogenesis and Mutagenesis, 1999-07-28) [Artigo]
The different potential of initiated and non-initiated urinary bladder mucosa (UBM) to develop neoplasia was quantitatively evaluated in the male Wistar rat. Initiation of carcinogenesis was accomplished with N-butyl-N-(4- ...
Natural killer activity in a medium-term multi-organ bioassay for carcinogenesis
(Japanese Journal Of Cancer Research : Gann, 1999) [Artigo]
Natural killer (NK) cell activity was evaluated after the initiation and promotion steps in a medium-term multi-organ bioassay for carcinogenesis. NK cell activity was assessed in vitro by Cr51 release assay at the 4th and ...
Autopsy: quality assurance in the ICU
(Intensive Care Medicine, 1999-04-01) [Artigo]
Objective: To examine the correlation between the clinical diagnosis and autopsy findings in adult patients who died in an intensive care unit (ICU). To determine the rate of agreement of the basic and terminal causes of ...
EBNA-1 gene sequences in Brazilian and American patients with Hodgkin's disease
(Blood, 1999-07-01) [Artigo]
We examined the types of Epstein-Barr virus-associated nuclear antigen-1 (EBNA-1) gene carboxy (C)-terminal mutations occurring in Hodgkin's disease (HD) and reactive tissues from two different geographic regions. Previously ...
Intrabdominal extrarenal malignant PEComa: A tumor showing morphologic features or clear cell sugar tumor and monotypic epithelial angiomyolipoma, but exhibiting metastatic properties.
(Laboratory Investigation, 1999-01-01) [Resumo]
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) nuclear antigen (EBNA)-4 mutation in EBV-associated malignancies in three different populations
(American Journal of Pathology, 1999-09-01) [Artigo]
Different ethnic groups with a high human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-A11 prevalence have been shown to experience a high rate of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection, EBV-associated malignancies, and Epstein-Barr nuclear antigen ...
Immunohematopathology markers in paraffin sections
(Journal of Histotechnology, 1999-09-01) [Resenha]
New monoclonal antibodies have made the use of formalin fixed, paraffin embedded sections practical for immunotyping and immunodiagnosing many hematolymphoid neoplasms. In addition, they can be helpful in classifying ...
Comparison of uroplakin expression during urothelial carcinogenesis induced by N-butyl-N-(4-hydroxybutyl)nitrosamine in rats and mice
(Toxicologic Pathology, 1999-12-08) [Artigo]
The expression of uroplakins, the tissue-specific and differentiation- dependent membrane proteins of the urothelium, was analyzed immunohistochemically in N butyl-N-(4-hydroxybutyl)nitrosamine (BBN)-treated rats and mice ...
Lack of Epstein-Barr virus infection in cervical carcinomas
(Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine, 1999-11-01) [Artigo]
Context.-The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is a ubiquitous microorganism strongly associated with lymphoproliferative disorders and a large number of human neoplasms, mainly undifferentiated nasopharyngeal carcinoma and Burkitt ...
