Silver binding nucleolar organiser regions in oral submucous fibrosis, lichen planus, leukoplakia and squamous cell carcinoma

December 2009

This study was undertaken to assess the biologic aggressiveness of sub mucous fibrosis, lichen planus, leukoplakia and squamous cell carcinoma of the oral cavity by determining the mean number of AgNORs and comparing them with those of normal mucosa. The study sample consisted of total 93 subjects. Biopsy specimens of 26 squamous cell carcinomas, 22 sub mucous fibrosis, 15 lichen planus, 15 leukoplakia and 15 healthy...

A case of breast cancer found as metastasis to the duodenum

December 2009

A 58-year-old woman underwent left total mastectomy for invasive ductual carcinoma of the breast in 2002. In November 2007, the upper gastrointestinal endoscopy showed that an ulcer (~ 0.3 × 0.5 cm) was covered with white fur and surrounded by edematus tissue at the anterior wall of duodenal bulb. The follow-up pathological examination revealed that the morphology of the cells of duodenal cancer was identical to...

Stage dependent expression of MUC1 glycoprotein in gallbladder carcinoma

October 2009

Gallbladder carcinoma is a relatively aggressive and frequently lethal cancer. It is defined as a clinicopathological presentation including a wide spectrum of lethal disease from simple gallstones to dysplasia, to carcinoma in situ and invasive carcinoma. MUC1, a cell surface antigen expressed in glandular epithelia, is overexpressed and aberrantly glycosylated in adenocarcinoma. In this report, the...

In vitro interaction of cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitors with radiation in nasopharyngeal carcinoma cell line: Dependence on sequence of administration

October 2009

In nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), COX-2 inhibitors have been reported to exhibit dose-dependent growth inhibition of these cancer cells, but their interaction with radiation has not yet been studied.  Here, we examined the effects of selective COX-2 inhibitors SC-236 and NS-398 on the radiosensitivity of NPC cells.  When  incubated  with  COX-2  inhibitors  prior  to ...

An improved implementation of brain tumor detection using segmentation based on soft computing

March 2009

Image segmentation is an important and challenging factor in the medical image segmentation. This paper describes segmentation method consisting of two phases. In the first phase, the MRI brain image is acquired from patients database, In that film, artifact and noise are removed after that HSom is applied for image segmentation. The HSom is the extension of the conventional self organizing map used to classify the...

The effect of using combination chemotherapy in colorectal cancer in India: A single institute survey

March 2009

The incidence of colorectal cancer in India is on upward swing due to the change in dietary habits. This study was done to evaluate the efficacy of two commonly used regimens. In this study, colorectal cancer patients treated with adjuvant chemotherapy from 1997 - 2001 were included and followed up for a period of five years. The efficacy of the commonly used regimens was compared in terms of five year disease free...
