  1. 1. Salivary gland neoplasms studies on the cytoskeleton, the secretory apparatus and the nuclear DNA content

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Hans Gustafsson; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [1986]

    Abstract : The heterogeneity of salivary gland neoplasms have made classification and prognostication of these tumours sometimes difficult, and the in­troduction of techniques, such as enzyme and carbohydrate histochemis­try and electron microscopy have only to a certain extent increased our knowledge in these respects. In the present study immunohistochemical methods have been used to identify intermediate filament proteins (IFP) in normal fetal and adult parotid glands, as well as in salivary neo­plasms.

    Abstract : Cancer is a genetic disease caused by the accumulation of genetic changes such as mutations and chromosomal rearrangements. An increasing number of genetic studies of both hematological and solid neoplasms have shown that recurrent chromosome translocations often result in fusion oncogenes. READ MORE
