    Notes: Abstract This study describes ultrastructural alterations of the interstitial stroma in the rat bladder epithelium during N-butyl-N-(4-hydroxybutyl)nitrosamine (BBN)-induced bladder carcinogenesis using scanning (SEM) and transmission (TEM) electron microscopy with NaOH treatment. The results obtained with SEM demonstrated the occurrence and development of stroma protrusions which exhibited pipe-like structures in the rat bladder epithelium following administration of BBN. Number and size of blood vessel sections also gradually increased both in the stroma and within the layer of the proliferated epithelial cells as examined by light microscopy (LM) and TEM. In this study stroma alterations were not only observed in malignant lesions of rat bladder, but hyperplastic lesions were also accompanied by stroma alterations. It is suggested that: (1) the interstitial stroma of the rat bladder epithelium may exhibit pathological changes in structure and these changes may correlate with the progression of epithelial cell proliferation following administration of BBN and (2) one of the most important alterations in the stroma is the occurrence of neovascularization, which may induce structural modification of the stroma in the processes of bladder tumor growth and development.

    Notes: Abstract This study investigated the presence of zinc and expression of metallothionein (MT) in different pathological changes of the rat bladder induced by administration of N-butyl-N-(4-hydroxybutyl) nitrosamine (BBN). Using the Timm staining method, the presence of zinc was observed in normal and benign hyperplastic epithelial cells of the rat bladder, particularly in the malignant bladder tumor, induced by the administration of BBN. Immunohistochemically, MT expression was detected only in noninvasive (30%) and invasive transitional cell carcinoma (80%) of the rat bladder where the tumor cells were rich in zinc. Our data suggest that: (1) growth and development of the rat bladder tumor, expecially malignant tumors, may have a high requirement for zinc and (2) MT synthesis may be induced by a high zinc concentration in rat bladder tumor cells.

    Notes: Abstract Background: Reed–Sternberg cells of Hodgkin's disease express CD30and CD40 receptors. The ligands for these receptors have been reported tohave pleiotropic biologic activities in vitro, including induction of celldeath. Expression of the ligands for these receptors in lymph nodes involvedwith Hodgkin's disease is not known. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine CD30 ligand (L) andCD40L expression in lymph nodes of patients with Hodgkin's disease, and tostudy CD30L expression on nodal lymphocyte subsets. Materials and methods: CD30L expression on subsets of lymphocytes of fivelymph nodes involved with Hodgkin's disease was determined by two-colorFACScan. Messenger RNA expression of CD30L and CD40L was determined by thereverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) method performed onseven specimens involved with Hodgkin's disease (five lymph nodes and twospleens). Results: Four of seven specimens (57%) contained cells thatexpressed CD30L mRNA and three specimens (43%) containedCD40L-expressing cells. The mean percentage of nodal lymphocytes expressingCD30L surface protein was ≤20%. Conclusion: Hodgkin's disease lymph nodes and spleens frequently lackCD30L- and CD40L-expressing cells, and when CD30L is expressed, it is usuallydetected on few numbers of lymphocytes. The differences in the level ofexpression of these ligands in Hodgkin's disease lymph nodes may be relatedto the disease's clinical behavior.
