Three types of liver cell dysplasia (LCD) in small cirrhotic nodules are distinguishable by karyometry and PCNA labelling, and their features resemble distinct grades of hepatocellular carcinoma.
Keeping in mind that lactation is an important, vulnerable period and that maternal exposure to alcohol during this phase, may lead to adverse effects to the developing offspring, it is the aim of this work to histometrically (by karyometry and stereology), evaluate the alveolar bone at the level of the first upper molar of the young rats that had been submitted to the effects of ethanol during lactation.
By karyometry, it was possible to observe that osteocyte nuclei were smaller in the treated rat major, minor and medium volume, area, perimeter and V/A relation, but nuclear shape was not modified (Table II).
Urinary nmp22 and karyometry in the diagnosis and follow-up of patients with superficial bladder cancer.
Differentiating benign nevi from malignant melanoma using DNA microdensitometry and karyometry and maturation: a zonal comparison, correlation and multivariate analysis.
Use of multiple cytometric markers improves discrimination between benign and malignant melanocytic lesions: a study of DNA microdensitometry, karyometry, argyrophilic staining of nucleolar organizer regions and MIB1-Ki67 immunoreactivity.
Karyometry permitted the estimation of the significant nuclear variations observed in the cells of the glomerulus, proximal and distal convoluted tubules and collecting ducts of aspartame-treated rat fetuses.
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of aspartame on the fetal kidney of rats, by observing through karyometry and stereology, structural changes in the glomerulus, proximal and distal convoluted tubules and collecting duct.
The aim of this study was to quantify, through karyometry, possible nuclear alterations in testicular cells of suckling rats, whose dams received doses of ofloxacin.
This was achieved by performing an experimental study on rats to determine, utilizing karyometry, morphometric alterations induced in the proximal and distal convoluted tubules, the collector tubules and the glomeruli of kidneys of fetuses by treating pregnant dams with a single dose of cadmium chloride.
For the morphometric study, karyometry was used to evaluate the nuclear parameters of form and volume, as well as their relations by means of the major and minor diameters of epithelial-cell nuclei of the renal proximal and distal convoluted tubules and collecting ducts.
