Virchows Arch 454:475-8. 2009..In conclusion, primary extraneural ependymomas have to be included into the differential diagnosis of abdominal tumors with pseudorosette-formation, even in unusual sites, and GFAP-immunohistochemistry (IHC) supports the diagnosis...
- Heparanase expression in head and neck squamous cell carcinomas is associated with reduced proliferation and improved survivalCarolin Mogler
Institute of Pathology, University of Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany
Histopathology 58:944-52. 2011..The present analysis, has studied the role of heparanase in tumour growth and clinical outcome in patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC)...
