Microtubule-associated proteins that are mainly expressed in neurons. Tau proteins constitute several isoforms and play an important role in the assembly of tubulin monomers into microtubules and in maintaining the cytoskeleton and axonal transport. Aggregation of specific sets of tau proteins in filamentous inclusions is the common feature of intraneuronal and glial fibrillar lesions (NEUROFIBRILLARY TANGLES; NEUROPIL THREADS) in numerous neurodegenerative disorders (ALZHEIMER DISEASE; TAUOPATHIES).
Abnormal structures located in various parts of the brain and composed of dense arrays of paired helical filaments (neurofilaments and microtubules). These double helical stacks of transverse subunits are twisted into left-handed ribbon-like filaments that likely incorporate the following proteins: (1) the intermediate filaments: medium- and high-molecular-weight neurofilaments; (2) the microtubule-associated proteins map-2 and tau; (3) actin; and (4) UBIQUITINS. As one of the hallmarks of ALZHEIMER DISEASE, the neurofibrillary tangles eventually occupy the whole of the cytoplasm in certain classes of cell in the neocortex, hippocampus, brain stem, and diencephalon. The number of these tangles, as seen in post mortem histology, correlates with the degree of dementia during life. Some studies suggest that tangle antigens leak into the systemic circulation both in the course of normal aging and in cases of Alzheimer disease.

The essential feature is that some of the persons under study have the disease or outcome of interest and their characteristics are compared with those of unaffected persons.
Strains of mice in which certain GENES of their GENOMES have been disrupted, or "knocked-out". To produce knockouts, using RECOMBINANT DNA technology, the normal DNA sequence of the gene being studied is altered to prevent synthesis of a normal gene product. Cloned cells in which this DNA alteration is successful are then injected into mouse EMBRYOS to produce chimeric mice. The chimeric mice are then bred to yield a strain in which all the cells of the mouse contain the disrupted gene. Knockout mice are used as EXPERIMENTAL ANIMAL MODELS for diseases (DISEASE MODELS, ANIMAL) and to clarify the functions of the genes.

The intracellular transfer of information (biological activation/inhibition) through a signal pathway. In each signal transduction system, an activation/inhibition signal from a biologically active molecule (hormone, neurotransmitter) is mediated via the coupling of a receptor/enzyme to a second messenger system or to an ion channel. Signal transduction plays an important role in activating cellular functions, cell differentiation, and cell proliferation. Examples of signal transduction systems are the GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID-postsynaptic receptor-calcium ion channel system, the receptor-mediated T-cell activation pathway, and the receptor-mediated activation of phospholipases. Those coupled to membrane depolarization or intracellular release of calcium include the receptor-mediated activation of cytotoxic functions in granulocytes and the synaptic potentiation of protein kinase activation. Some signal transduction pathways may be part of larger signal transduction pathways; for example, protein kinase activation is part of the platelet activation signal pathway.

Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.

One of the mechanisms by which CELL DEATH occurs (compare with NECROSIS and AUTOPHAGOCYTOSIS). Apoptosis is the mechanism responsible for the physiological deletion of cells and appears to be intrinsically programmed. It is characterized by distinctive morphologic changes in the nucleus and cytoplasm, chromatin cleavage at regularly spaced sites, and the endonucleolytic cleavage of genomic DNA; (DNA FRAGMENTATION); at internucleosomal sites. This mode of cell death serves as a balance to mitosis in regulating the size of animal tissues and in mediating pathologic processes associated with tumor growth.

An important class of nonparametric tests employs the ordinal properties of the data. Another class of tests uses information about whether an observation is above or below some fixed value such as the median, and a third class is based on the frequency of the occurrence of runs in the data. (From McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed, p1284; Corsini, Concise Encyclopedia of Psychology, 1987, p764-5)
Learning the correct route through a maze to obtain reinforcement. It is used for human or animal populations. (Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms, 6th ed)
Serum glycoprotein produced by activated MACROPHAGES and other mammalian MONONUCLEAR LEUKOCYTES. It has necrotizing activity against tumor cell lines and increases ability to reject tumor transplants. Also known as TNF-alpha, it is only 30% homologous to TNF-beta (LYMPHOTOXIN), but they share TNF RECEPTORS.
The number of CELLS of a specific kind, usually measured per unit volume or area of sample.
The major interferon produced by mitogenically or antigenically stimulated LYMPHOCYTES. It is structurally different from TYPE I INTERFERON and its major activity is immunoregulation. It has been implicated in the expression of CLASS II HISTOCOMPATIBILITY ANTIGENS in cells that do not normally produce them, leading to AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES.
Disease having a short and relatively severe course.
Diseases characterized by the presence of abnormally phosphorylated, ubiquitinated, and cleaved DNA-binding protein TDP-43 in affected brain and spinal cord. Inclusions of the pathologic protein in neurons and glia, without the presence of AMYLOID, is the major feature of these conditions, thus making these proteinopathies distinct from most other neurogenerative disorders in which protein misfolding leads to brain amyloidosis. Both frontotemporal lobar degeneration and AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS exhibit this common method of pathogenesis and thus they may represent two extremes of a continuous clinicopathological spectrum of one disease.
The process of generating three-dimensional images by electronic, photographic, or other methods. For example, three-dimensional images can be generated by assembling multiple tomographic images with the aid of a computer, while photographic 3-D images (HOLOGRAPHY) can be made by exposing film to the interference pattern created when two laser light sources shine on an object.
In vitro method for producing large amounts of specific DNA or RNA fragments of defined length and sequence from small amounts of short oligonucleotide flanking sequences (primers). The essential steps include thermal denaturation of the double-stranded target molecules, annealing of the primers to their complementary sequences, and extension of the annealed primers by enzymatic synthesis with DNA polymerase. The reaction is efficient, specific, and extremely sensitive. Uses for the reaction include disease diagnosis, detection of difficult-to-isolate pathogens, mutation analysis, genetic testing, DNA sequencing, and analyzing evolutionary relationships.
The failure by the observer to measure or identify a phenomenon accurately, which results in an error. Sources for this may be due to the observer's missing an abnormality, or to faulty technique resulting in incorrect test measurement, or to misinterpretation of the data. Two varieties are inter-observer variation (the amount observers vary from one another when reporting on the same material) and intra-observer variation (the amount one observer varies between observations when reporting more than once on the same material).
Electron microscopy in which the ELECTRONS or their reaction products that pass down through the specimen are imaged below the plane of the specimen.
Microscopy using an electron beam, instead of light, to visualize the sample, thereby allowing much greater magnification. The interactions of ELECTRONS with specimens are used to provide information about the fine structure of that specimen. In TRANSMISSION ELECTRON MICROSCOPY the reactions of the electrons that are transmitted through the specimen are imaged. In SCANNING ELECTRON MICROSCOPY an electron beam falls at a non-normal angle on the specimen and the image is derived from the reactions occurring above the plane of the specimen.
Pathological processes of the KIDNEY or its component tissues.
The delicate interlacing threads, formed by aggregations of neurofilaments and neurotubules, coursing through the CYTOPLASM of the body of a NEURON and extending from one DENDRITE into another or into the AXON.
A major deviation from normal patterns of behavior.
The termination of the cell's ability to carry out vital functions such as metabolism, growth, reproduction, responsiveness, and adaptability.
An imaging technique using compounds labelled with short-lived positron-emitting radionuclides (such as carbon-11, nitrogen-13, oxygen-15 and fluorine-18) to measure cell metabolism. It has been useful in study of soft tissues such as CANCER; CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM; and brain. SINGLE-PHOTON EMISSION-COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY is closely related to positron emission tomography, but uses isotopes with longer half-lives and resolution is lower.
A procedure in which a laparoscope (LAPAROSCOPES) is inserted through a small incision near the navel to examine the abdominal and pelvic organs in the PERITONEAL CAVITY. If appropriate, biopsy or surgery can be performed during laparoscopy.
Capacity that enables an individual to cope with and/or recover from the impact of a neural injury or a psychotic episode.

An assessment of the operation of an external quality assessment (EQA) scheme in histopathology in the South Thames (West) region: 1995-1998. (1/578)

AIMS: To describe the design and organisation of a voluntary regional external quality assessment (EQA) scheme in histopathology, and to record the results obtained over a three year period. METHODS: A protocol is presented in which circulation of EQA slides alternated with teaching sessions. Procedures for the choice of suitable cases, evaluation of submitted diagnoses, and feedback of results to participants are described. The use of teaching sessions, complementary to the slide circulations, and dealing with current diagnostic problems is also outlined. RESULTS: Participation rates in the nine slide circulations varied between 66% and 89%, mean 85%. Overall scores were predictably high but 4% of returns, from 10 pathologists, were unsatisfactory. These low scores were typically isolated or intermittent and none of the participants fulfilled agreed criteria for chronic poor performers. CONCLUSIONS: This scheme has been well supported and overall performances have been satisfactory. The design was sufficiently discriminatory to reveal a few low scores which are analysed in detail. Prompt feedback of results to participants with identification of all "incomplete" and "wrong" diagnoses is essential. Involvement of local histopathologists in designing, running, and monitoring such schemes is important.  (+info)

The efficacy and limitations of repeated slide conferences for improving interobserver agreement when judging nuclear atypia of breast cancer. The Japan National Surgical Adjuvant Study of Breast Cancer (NSAS-BC) Pathology Section. (2/578)

BACKGROUND: The pathology section of the Japan National Surgical Adjuvant Study of Breast Cancer protocol study was set up to establish histological criteria for assessing high-risk node-negative breast cancers and standardize the subjective criteria used by collaborating pathologists for nuclear grading of cancers. METHODS: In order to standardize the nuclear atypia criteria, five slide conferences were held. A total of 57 observers assigned nuclear atypia scores to 119 breast carcinomas that were presented using a slide projector or a TV monitor and discussed their histological findings. The percentage interobserver agreements per tumor and per conference and kappa value per conference were estimated and compared among the conferences. The percentage intraobserver reproducibility per tumor between the last two conferences was compared with the percentage interobserver agreement for 20 tumors. The kappa value was also calculated for each of 27 observers to evaluate scoring reproducibility. RESULTS: The percentage interobserver agreement per conference was constant (75-78%) throughout the five meetings and the rate of tumors with > 80% agreement per tumor became higher in later conferences. The kappa value was 0.42, 0.25, 0.42, 0.51 and 0.50 for the first, second, third, fourth and fifth conferences, respectively. The tumors with a lower percentage interobserver agreement also had a lower percentage intraobserver reproducibility and such scoring variations were attributed to the intermediate nature of the degree of tumor atypia. In 26 of 27 observers, intraobserver agreement for 20 tumors was estimated from the kappa value to range from moderate to almost perfect. CONCLUSION: We concluded that the repeated slide conferences conducted by the pathology section were an effective means of standardizing the subjective histopathological criteria used to assess tumors. However, the achievement of a good scoring agreement would be difficult for tumors with an intermediate degree of atypia.  (+info)

Attracting and training more chemical pathologists in the United Kingdom. (3/578)

I have attempted to define the function of the medical graduate in the clinical biochemistry laboratory and have examined data on recrutiment in the United Kingdom into clinical biochemistry. If trainee pathologists were encouraged to become proficient in both a branch of clinical medicine and in research techniques, the resulting chemical pathologists should be able to improve the consultative and investigative functions of the laboratory. To this end I have suggested some changes in the training regulations and in the role of the chemical pathologists.  (+info)

The pathologist and toxicologist in pharmaceutical product discovery. (4/578)

Significant change is occurring in the drug discovery paradigm; many companies are utilizing dedicated groups from the toxicology/ pathology disciplines to support early stage activities. The goal is to improve the efficiency of the discovery process for selecting a successful clinical candidate. Toxicity can be predicted by leveraging molecular techniques via rapid high-throughput, low-resource in vitro and in vivo test systems. Several important activities help create a platform to support rapid development of a new molecular entity. The proceedings of this symposium provide excellent examples of these applied concepts in pharmaceutical research and development. Leading biopharmaceutical companies recognize that a competitive advantage can be maintained via rapid characterization of animal models, the cellular identification of therapeutic targets, and improved sensitivity of efficacy assessment. The participation of the molecular pathologist in this quest is evolving rapidly, as evidenced by the growing number of pathologists that interact with drug discovery organizations.  (+info)

Mechanisms of disease and injury: utilization of mutants, monoclonals, and molecular methods. (5/578)

Rapid advances in our ability to localize and quantify macromolecular changes in health and disease are being brought about by the availability of genetically altered animals (mutants), purified reagents such as monoclonal antibodies, and new molecular methods. Targeted gene deletion (knockouts) and gene insertions (transgenics) in animals can allow identification of the importance and function of macromolecules. Monoclonal antibodies and fluorescent labels coupled with advances in microscopy provide exacting and multi-dimensional information about localization and cellular changes in proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids using immunohistochemistry, fluorescent activated cell sorting, and immunoprecipitation. Similarly, new applications of molecular methods can be used to identify and localize nucleic acids in tissues via in situ hybridization, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), reverse transcription (RT) PCR, differential display RT-PCR, RNase protection assays, and microchip arrays. The ligand for CD40 (CD40L), an important immunoregulatory molecule, is an example of the successful application of mutants, monoclonal antibodies, and molecular methods to cloning and biological characterization of new molecules. CD40L knockout mice, monoclonal antibodies, and several molecular methods were used to identify mutations in CD40L as the genetic basis for hyper-IgM syndrome in humans, to provide new insights into the pathobiology of Pneumocystis carinii infection, and to evaluate CD40L for immunotherapy of tumors and opportunistic infections.  (+info)

Computer-based teaching of pathology at the Zagreb University School of Medicine. (6/578)

AIM: To review the experience gained in transferring USA computer-based teaching system of medical school pathology to Croatia. METHODS: Computer-based teaching program of pathology developed at the University of Kansas School of Medicine, Kansas City, Kansas, USA, was transferred to the University of Zagreb School of Medicine, Zagreb, Croatia. The experimental group of 49 students was enrolled into this computer-based program. Their performance was compared with that of 195 classmates enrolled in the standard course. Objective (performance on the examinations) and subjective data (students' interviews and written evaluations of the course) were analyzed. RESULTS: The computer program was operational 5 months from the inception of the transfer. It was well received by the students, even though many initially complained that it required more effort and a continuous commitment. The major problems concerned scheduling, reflecting various requirements i mposed on students by other departments teaching in parallel with the Pathology course. Objective data gathered so far indicate that the students enrolled in the computer-based program took the first midterm examination at a significantly higher rate than the rest of the class (p<0.001), and passed the examination with significantly better grades (p<0.001). CONCLUSION: Computer-based teaching programs can be readily transferred to other countries. Full implementation of the program, however, may require significant changes in the existing curriculum in the medical school to which such a program has been transferred or considerable modifications in the program adopted for transfer. It appears that the students enrolled in the computer-based program perform better than students in the standard pathology course.  (+info)

An evaluation of the Banff classification of early renal allograft biopsies and correlation with outcome. (8/578)

BACKGROUND: The Banff classification for assessment of renal allograft biopsies was introduced as a standardized international classification of renal allograft pathology and acute rejection. Subsequent debate and evaluation studies have attempted to develop and refine the classification. A recent alternative classification, known as the National Institutes of Health Collaborative Clinical Trials in Transplantation (NIH-CCTT) classification, proposed three distinct types of acute rejection. The 1997 Fourth Banff meeting appeared to move towards a consensus for describing transplant biopsies, which incorporated both approaches. Patients who received a renal allograft at the Oxford Transplant Centre were managed by a combination of protocol and clinically indicated biopsies. We have undertaken a retrospective analysis of the biopsies correlated with the clinical outcome to test the prognostic value of the original Banff (Banff 93-95) and NIH-CCTT classifications. METHODS: Three hundred and eighty-two patients received renal allografts between May 1985 and December 1989, and were immunosuppressed using a standard protocol of cyclosporine, azathioprine and steroid. Adequate 5-year follow-up data were available on 351 patients, and of these, 293 had at least one satisfactory biopsy taken between days 2 and 35 after transplantation, the latter patients forming the study group. The D2-35 biopsies taken from these patients, which were not originally reported according to the Banff classification, were re-examined and classified according to the Banff 93-95 protocols. For each patient the biopsy found to be the most severely abnormal was selected, and the Banff and NIH-CCTT grading compared with the clinical outcome. RESULTS: Seven hundred and forty-three biopsies taken from 293 patients between days 2 and 35 after transplantation were examined and the patients categorized on the basis of the 'worst' Banff grading as follows. Normal or non-rejection, 20%; borderline, 34%; acute rejection grade I (AR I), 18%; AR IIA, 6%; AR IIB, 14%; AR III, 1%; AR IIIC, 3%; widespread necrosis 3%. The clinical outcome for the last two groups combined was very poor with 18% of grafts functioning at 3 months and 6% at 5 years. The other groups with vascular rejection (AR IIB and AR III) had an intermediate outcome, graft survival being 78% at 3 months and 61% at 5 years. The remaining four groups (normal, borderline, cellular AR I and AR IIA) had the best outcome: graft survival 95% at 3 months and 78% at 5 years with virtually no difference between the four groups. Three forms of acute rejection, namely tubulo-interstitial, vascular and transmural vascular, were identified, but only the latter two categories were associated with a poor outcome. CONCLUSIONS: The eight sub-categories of the Banff classification of renal allograft biopsies are associated with three different prognoses with respect to graft survival in the medium term. These three prognostic groups correspond to the three NIH-CCTT types. The data provide support for the consensus developed at Banff 97 separating tubulo-interstitial, vascular and transmural vascular rejection (types I, II and III acute rejection).  (+info)

Dear Editor. I have read the fifth report on services for patients with coronary heart disease and while primary care, district, tertiary services, cardiac nursing etc. all duely given emphasis, nowwhere is there a mention of cardiac pathology services. Under the chapter on audit, clinical governence and CPD, I eagerly expected some token reference especially under Bristol enquiry where autopsy reports formed part of the enquiry, but alas not a word! I believe the provision of an expert pathological opinion is essential especially in the area of operative deaths and audit of surgical procedures. Cardiac pathologists are a rare breed and becoming rarer, with no specific training programme within UK or Europe. Tertiary centres in particular need their expertise in order to maintain the highest standard of care and pathologists are an essential part of the audit process with an emphasis on mortality audit, quality of care and also education. I consider myself to be an essential member of the ...

What pathologists are discussing about what pathologists need to know about E-cigarette or Vaping Product Use-Associated Lung Injury (EVALI).
Our results show that topical application of a bioadhesive 10% FBR gel positively affects oral IEN lesions in a subset of patients. Further, none of the 27 clinical trial participants developed any adverse effects. These encouraging toxicity data support previous studies conducted by our laboratories, which confirmed that large doses of FBR are well tolerated by humans (19-21), and further validate the established safety record for the two cross-linked polyacrylic acid-based polymers used as either the bioadhesive or the gel base (22).. Our histopathology data show appreciable interpatient variability in IEN responsiveness, with 41% of our participants showing a decrease in lesional grade, 23% of participants showing an increase in lesional grade, and 35% of the patients lesions exhibiting stable disease. Although modest, these histologic response rates compare favorably with previous oral IEN chemoprevention trials (27). Indeed, it is possible that optimized dose or dosing schedules may ...

Pathologists are important. 70% of diagnoses require the services of a pathologist, Sue pointed out; but like a lot of essential services they tend to go unnoticed and are not often mentioned. Two members of the audience came up with further examples of these after the talk: one hospital was built and it was only afterwards that they realised they hadnt included a path lab. Another audience member related how she had been seriously ill with septic shock, and it was only after the pathologist changed her antibiotic that she showed any sign of improvement ...
H&E slides are generated as part of the standard work-up of any CRC treated by surgical resection. In the assessment of this histologic material, pathologists are presently limited to a strictly defined set of morphologic and anatomic criteria.23 24 This information supports the definition of broad prognostic risk groups but has no predictive value.24 The integration of genomic technologies in the clinical care of patients with CRC has immense potential to drive personalised treatment and is now widely implemented for panel-based DNA analysis. While this is of great value in some tumour types such as non-small cell lung cancer, in CRC and many other tumour types the impact is relatively minor. Gene expression data provide information regarding the behaviour of epithelial, stromal and immune compartments of the tumour, which is more informative especially in CRC as the basis for the CMS subtyping, but requires substantial financial, personnel and infrastructure resources.1 Combining morphological ...

Article in full:. https://www.mja.com.au/system/files/issues/204_10/10.5694mja16.00293.pdf. Any literature review of anti-gun publications, especially opinion pieces laden with throw away figures and singular data points, is always difficult. They arent difficult because theyre hard to refute or review, but because I never know where to start.. The relationship between psychosis or serious mental illness is well researched, and the findings are clear. Mentally ill individuals are at greater risk of both perpetrating and being the target of violence, however, they account for a small percentage of overall violence. How this relates to the gun control debate is a difficult and complex issue that bears close examination and candid discussion.. I find it objectionable, almost negligent, on the part of The Medical Journal of Australia to publish what is essentially an opinion piece masquerading as serious research. Never mind that the most recent Chapman et al. paper offers a more well rounded, and ...

Gianna Ballon, MD is currently completing her Anatomic and Clinical Pathology Residency at Northwell Health in Long Island, NY. She obtained her medical degree, with distinction summa cum laude, from the University of Padova, Italy. Prior to her pathology residency, she was a post-doctoral fellow at the Institute for Cancer Genetics at Columbia University, NY, where she contributed to the generation of transgenic mice for BCL6 oncogene, the first mouse model of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma in humans. From 2003 to 2014, she worked at Weill Cornell Medical College, NY, where she was eventually appointed faculty instructor and where she took leadership in a project addressing the role of vFLIP gene in Kaposis sarcoma herpesvirus-mediated viral oncogenesis. The mouse models that she generated unveiled the capacity of this gene to induce tumorigenesis in vivo, perturbation in serum cytokines and emergence of myeloid cell subsets with tumor suppressor functions and a role in tumor immune ...

I could talk about the effect of being an IMG on my current residency, but the simple fact is, there isnt one. Pathology is poorly prepared for in *any* medical school (thats a rant for a different day), and once youre in, youre in. I have two other IMGs in my class and a DO, and none of the former since (I hope we didnt break them), and unless we remind everyone else, which we will occasionally do with gusto since no one appreciates both the grass clearance and taste of goats, it doesnt flicker on their radar. I got the fellowship I wanted without a lot of difficulty in the application process, which is considerably cheaper than the medical school and residency processes. Things still cost a bit more, but that cost is offset by our generous education fund. So whats life in a pathology residency in South Carolina like as an IMG? Pretty much like it is for any other pathology resident in South Carolina. We eat, we drink, we ill advisedly run over the Cooper River Bridge, and we read books ...

Like me, many Clinical pathologists, microbiologists and chemical pathologists, have completed training through the College of Physicians as well as pathology training. Thats about 7-8 years of further study after your medical degree. During that time there is patient contact as part of ward service or outpatient clinics. This is different to Anatomical pathologists who usually enter pathology training after fewer clinical years and then work only from within the laboratory liaising mostly with medical referrers.. In my current role, I physically interact with patients (and their relatives) when I attend for bone marrow biopsies.

Melanotic Xp11 translocation renal cancer (TRC) is a newly described exceedingly rare tumor, and its characterization remains controversial. This study aimed to describe a case of distinctive melanotic Xp11 TRC and to elucidate its clinicopathological and molecular genetic features. A 44-year-old Chinese female presented with a left renal mass. Abdominal ultrasonography and computed tomography (CT) scans revealed a 4.5 cm × 4.0 cm mass in the left kidney. Grossly, the well-demarcated mass was black with moderately firm consistency. Microscopic examination indicated that the tumor was characterized by the presence of nests and cords of polygonal cells with clear and granular eosinophilic cytoplasm, central round to oval nuclei and occasional nucleoli. Intracytoplasmic melanin was observed in approximately 45% of tumor cells. Uniquely, the tumor presented with intranuclear eosinophilic pseudoinclusions and thick-walled stromal blood vessels. IHC showed that tumor cells were diffusely positive for TFE3

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a multi-factor, multi-step, multi-gene and complicated process resulting from the accumulation of sequential genetic and epigenetic alterations. An important change among them is from precancerous lesions to HCC. However, only few studies have been reported about the sequential genetic changes during hepatocarcinogenesis. We observed firstly molecular karyotypes of 10 matched HCC using Affymetrix single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) 6.0 arrays, and found chromosomal fragments with high incidence (more than 70 %) of loss of heterozygosity (LOH). Then, we selected 28 microsatellite markers at some gene spanning these chromosomal fragments, and examined the frequency of LOH of 128 matched HCC and 43 matched precancerous lesions-dysplastic nodules (DN) by a PCR-based analysis. Finally, we investigated the expression of proteins encoded by these genes in HCC, DN and the surrounding hepatic tissues. The result of Affymetrix SNP6.0 arrays demonstrated that more than 70 % (7/10

A disease in which individuals have the growth of fibers from their skin that burn at 1,700 degrees F and do not melt. (20)(* see below) A private study to determine the chemical and biological composition of these fibers has shown that the fibers outer casing is made up of high density polyethylene fiber (HDPE). The fiber material is used commonly in the manufacture of fiber optics. There is no history of the individual in that industry or coming into contact with this material. It was further determined that this material is used throughout the bio nanotechnology world as a compound to encapsulate a viral protein envelope, which is composed of a viron (1/150th times smaller than a virus) with DNA, RNA, RNAi (mutated RNA) or RNAsi linear or ring plasmids for specific functions.

TOE -. You might like this counterpart to an earlier post of mine, The Healthy Gut. It comes from a friend in her second year of pathology residency at Ohio State University. I asked for her medical opinion on my theory. Heres what she had to say:. Regarding your thoughts on the rotund, hmm. There is some evidence that being mildly overweight offers protection against peri-operative complications. It is thought that this is due to decreased levels of circulating stress hormones and increased nutritional status being able to compensate for some of the insults associated with surgery. However, as we are not barraged with controlled trauma on a regular basis, I dont recommend fattening up as a general health strategy. Time and time again, studies demonstrate that the fat are unhealthy and the thin live longer and with better quality of health. The clogged-artery resistance to laminar flow and extra lard to supply with vital blood do not make the heart strong. Instead, the extra load stresses ...

Many pathologists are unfamiliar with a variety of entities in lung, pleural, mediastinal and transplant pathology. The potential for diagnostic error in these areas relates to inexperience from restricted exposure or caseload. Drs. Tazelaar and Churgs interactive microscopy course with an expert faculty is designed to close this practice gap by providing a comprehensive but detailed look at fibrosing interstitial pneumonias, pulmonary vasculitis, and some forms of pulmonary infection; benign and malignant mesotheliomas; thymomas and other mediastinal lesions; pulmonary tumors using cytology; and lung/heart/liver transplant rejection and their mimics. The simulated sign-out format confers a mentoring opportunity for interactive learning, promoting dialogue and exchange of criteria, common challenges, and differential diagnoses. The ultimate goal is the optimization of patient outcomes.. The United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing ...
What distinguishes EIN from many new proposals are the diverse options for implementation, which can be illustrated by the current clinical practices of the two authors of this paper.. One approach is to extract from the combined morphometry and molecular experience revised diagnostic criteria that may be applied in existing settings without the need for specialised equipment. Essentially, pathologists are retrained to diagnose using those criteria that had previously been discovered by objective means. Although subjective diagnosis can never match the excellent reproducibility of computer generated D-scores, key diagnostic elements such as VPS (which is the best single predictive variable of the D-score) and initial focal distribution of lesions with architecture and cytology differing from background (radial growth from a clonal point of origin) are intuitive concepts that pathologists can readily incorporate into their diagnostic repertoire. Readily accessible teaching tools such as online ...

Whether by microbial mutation, movement across borders, or man-made biological release, a new health threat is inevitable, unpredictable, and potentially devastating. For the first time, the world now has a clear picture of how prepared countries are for this potentially catastrophic event. When the international evaluation team left Haiti in July 2019, one hundred countries had completed a Joint External Evaluation (JEE) of health emergency readiness. The JEE is a voluntary, externally validated assessment of 19 technical areas required to prevent, detect, and respond to health emergencies. This milestone, in addition to the ongoing uncontrolled Ebola epidemic in the Democratic Republic of Congo, makes this an opportune time to take stock of both the status of the worlds preparedness and of what needs to be done to make the world safer. … To save lives, funded, prioritized, well-planned actions must be implemented at scale as soon as possible, supported by a network of partners working ...
We are all Gods children. Wouldnt it be wonderful if each of us accepted each other as siblings - helping where we can instead of ignoring?. We are all equal.

The Mouse Tumor Biology (MTB) Database serves as a curated, integrated resource for information about tumor genetics and pathology in genetically defined strains of mice (i.e., inbred, transgenic and targeted mutation strains). Sources of information for the database include the published scientific literature and direct data submissions by the scientific community. Researchers access MTB using Web-based query forms and can use the database to answer such questions as What tumors have been reported in transgenic mice created on a C57BL/6J background?, What tumors in mice are associated with mutations in the Trp53 gene? and What pathology images are available for tumors of the mammary gland regardless of genetic background?. MTB has been available on the Web since 1998 from the Mouse Genome Informatics web site (http://www.informatics.jax.org). We have recently implemented a number of enhancements to MTB including new query options, redesigned query forms and results pages for pathology

The ethmoidal sinuses or ethmoidal air cells of the ethmoid bone are one of the four paired paranasal sinuses. They are a variable in both size and number of small cavities in the lateral mass of each of the ethmoid bones and cannot be palpated during an extraoral examination.[1] They are divided into the anterior, middle and posterior groups (see below). The ethmoidal air cells consist of numerous thin-walled cavities situated in the ethmoidal labyrinth and completed by the frontal, maxilla, lacrimal, sphenoidal, and palatine bones. They lie between the upper parts of the nasal cavities and the orbits, and are separated from these cavities by thin bony laminae.[2]. ...
