Introduction: Cytokeratin-19 (CK19), p53 and Ki-67 are some of the proposed markers for differentiating benign from malignant thyroid tumors.Material and method: We evaluated the tissue expression of the three markers in 60 thyroid lesions including: 8 cases of nodular hyperplasia (NH), 16 follicular adenomas (FA), 26 papillary carcinomas (PC) and 10 follicular carcinomas (FC). Tissue sections fixed in formalin and embedded in paraffin were immunohistoch...

Introduction: The mammary cancer is the most frequent malign tumor encountered in females, characterized by a high distant metastasis tendency. Among the potential prognosis factors, we mention the biomarkers that measure or are associated with biologic processes involved in the tumorous progression. The study analyzes the p53 protein’s positivity in correlation with the mammary cancer’s classical prognosis factors: the hystologic type, the histopathologic degree, th...
