Argyrophil carcinoid tumors of the lung. Incidence, clinical study, and follow-up of 46 patients

T BlondalT Aberg


Forty-nine patients with lung tumors initially diagnosed as carcinoids from their cellular appearance and arrangement were originally included in the study. The tumors of 46 of these patients showed an argyrophil reaction with the Grimelius silver stain. The three nonargyrophil tumors were reclassified as noncarcinoid tumors at further examination. The use of the argyrophil technique in characterization of the lung carcinoid tumors is discussed. The incidence of lung carcinoid tumors in the County of Uppsala was 0.7 patients per 100,000 inhabitants per year. Eleven patients with detected disease were symptom-free. The doctor's delay in 9 patients was 3 to 13.8 years. Yet, the prognosis was good, with 5-year survival in 91 percent, 10-year survival in 91 percent, and 15-year survival in 86 percent of the 46 surgically-treated patients. It is concluded that the surgical treatment should at least comprise a lobectomy.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
