Oncocytic carcinoid tumor of the lung

Ultrastructural Pathology
S M SajjadJ M Lukeman


A case of bronchial carcinoid tumor is reported in which a marked degree of transformation to mitochondrion-rich cells (oncocytes) was present. Ultrastructural observations demonstrated a transition between the two cell types, and revealed an alteration in mitochondria suggestive of a degenerative change in these organelles.

Cancer Metabolism

In order for cancer cells to maintain rapid, uncontrolled cell proliferation, they must acquire a source of energy. Cancer cells acquire metabolic energy from their surrounding environment and utilize the host cell nutrients to do so. Here is the latest research on cancer metabolism.
