The advantage to link these methodologies is the confirmation of the beginning of lesions, even though the subject doesn't show dysplasia during observation routine, given aneuploid cells synonymous with malignity (Auffermann & Bocking, 1983, Bocking et al.
After 20 wk in culture, the percentage of tetraploid cells decreased slightly to 18% but the number of aneuploid cells around the tetraploid number (26, 27 and 29) increased from 6% at 12 wk to 13% at 20 wk (Fig.
