In this patient, the negative results of CEA and Ber-EP4 immunohistochemistry allowed us to exclude reactivity of the bioptic samples with epithelial-binding antibodies, whereas results of immunohistochemistry for cytokeratins, calretinin, EMA and HBME-1 indicated reactivity of the neoplastic tissue with antibodies that preferentially bind cells of mesothelial origin (Attanoos and Gibbs 1997; King and Hasleton 2001).
Tumor samples, always containing some contiguous healthy tissue, were obtained shortly after surgical removal, quickly separated into pieces of neoplastic tissue, nonnecrotic tissue removed from the edges of tumoral area (adjacent neoplastic tissue), and unaffected surrounding tissue, which was used as a control.
However, the membrane-bound AspAP activity was significantly lower in neoplastic tissue (P <0.
A total of 110 frozen benign lymph node samples, 27 lymph nodes with metastatic tumors, and 20 other inflammatory or neoplastic tissues were tested in parallel (Table 4).

Increased blood vessel permeability, as well as poor lymphatic drainage in neoplastic tissues, may contribute to the retention of the drug in neoplastic lesions.
Brains and spleens were removed from all mice, and neoplastic tissues involving lymph nodes were removed from 4 infected and 1 uninfected mouse, and the thymus was removed from 2 infected mice (Table).
The results given in previous reports analyzing the prevalence of all three isoforms in healthy and neoplastic tissues by use of nonquantitative RT-PCR or Northern blots are comparable to our results.
DakoCytomation's c-Kit pharmDx(TM) test is an immunohistochemistry assay designed to qualitatively identify c-kit protein/CD117 antigen expression in normal and neoplastic tissues.
15) Differential expression between normal and neoplastic tissues has been demonstrated in diverse organ systems, such as breast, colon, salivary glands, and thyroid.
The kit is a slide-based assay used to detect expression of EGFR protein in normal and neoplastic tissues.
Berger, through a proteomic approach allowing for the detection of proteins in the blood, discovered that Neovastat induces a significant decrease of haemoglobin in neoplastic tissues of animals treated with this antiangiogenic drug.
