Peritumoral Activated Hepatic Stellate Cells Predict Poor Clinical Outcome in Hepatocellular Carcinoma After Curative Resection

The inflammatory components of the liver remnant after hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) resection are of prognostic importance. We evaluated prognostic potential of peritumoral activated hepatic stellate cells (HSCs) in 130 HCC cases. The messenger RNA (mRNA) levels of the functional genes in HSCs (ie, seprase, osteonectin, and tenascin-C), quantitated by real-time quantitative...

Histologic Parameters Predictive of Mycobacterial Infection

Tissue specimens from a wide variety of anatomic locations are frequently examined for mycobacteria using a combination of cultures and special stains. Auramine-rhodamine (AR) staining is a sensitive method for detecting acid-fast bacilli (AFB) in tissue sections. We reviewed 85 AR-positive and 275 randomly selected AR-negative biopsy specimens collected during the past 2 years...
