Flow cytometric DNA analysis of oral squamous cell carcinoma in Iraqi patients
AbstractWe studied the DNA content, DNA index and cell cycle parameters that are reliable markers for assessing the proliferative activity and aggressiveness of malignancies. Cytometric DNA analysis was performed on formalin-fixed paraffin embedded sections from 36 Iraqi patients with oral squamous cell carcinoma. The results showed that 20 of 36 cases [55.5%] were diploid, while 15 cases [41.7%] were aneuploid. Significantly higher S-phase fractions and higher DNA indices characterized aneuploid tumours. Nuclear DNA analysis as part of the evaluation of oral squamous cell carcinoma will influence the selection of appropriate treatment strategies

Evaluation of serum levels and significance of soluble CD40 ligand in screening patients with hepatitis C virus-related hepatocellular carcinoma Eltaher, S. M.; El Gil, R.; Fouad, N.; Mitwali, R.; El Kholy, H. (2016)The study's objective was to evaluate the clinical significance of sCD40L in HCV- associated hepatocellular carcinoma [HCV-HCC] patients. Sera concentration of circulating sCD40L and IL-10 were assayed using ELISA in 30 HCV positive patients with HCC, 30 HCV-positive patients with liver cirrhosis and 30 age-matched healthy volunteers with negative anti-HCV-Ab as a control group. Serum sCD40Lshowed statistically-significant high levels in HCV-HCC patients compared to HCV-cirrhotic patients and normal controls [P < 0.001]. Serum sCD40L had higher ...
