Peritoneal malignant mesothelioma (PMM), and primary peritoneal serous carcinoma (PPSC) and reactive mesothelial hyperplasia (RMH) of the peritoneum. Immunohistochemical and fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH) analyses.
Tokorozawa, Japan. In J Clin Pathol, Feb 2016
METHODS: To help differentiate PMM from PPSC and RMH, we used immunohistochemistry to examine mesothelial-associated markers (calretinin, AE1/AE3, CK5/6, CAM5.2, D2-40, WT-1, HBME1, thrombomodulin), adenocarcinoma-associated markers (CEA, BerEP4, MOC31, ER (estrogen receptor), PgR, TTF-1, Claudin-4, Pax8), and malignant-related and benign-related markers (epithelial membrane antigen (EMA), desmin, GLUT-1, CD146 and IMP3), and FISH to examine for homozygous deletion of 9p21.
Clinical implications of current developments in genitourinary pathology.
Worcester, United States. In Arch Pathol Lab Med, 2013
OBJECTIVE: To review 5 stories in genitourinary pathology: (1) fusion in the ETS (E26) gene family in prostatic adenocarcinoma; (2) insulin-like growth factor II messenger RNA-binding protein 3 (IMP3), an important prognostic biomarker for kidney and bladder cancers; (3) translocation renal cell carcinoma; (4) UroVysion fluorescence in situ hybridization test in urine cytology for detection of bladder cancer; and (5) the use of triple immunostaining for diagnosis of prostate cancer.
