      Grading follicular lymphoma on fine-needle aspiration specimens—A practical approach (pages 1–9)

      Nancy A. Young

      Article first published online: 6 JAN 2006 | DOI: 10.1002/cncr.21350

      Difficulty in grading follicular lymphoma is a potential barrier to the universal acceptance of fine-needle aspiration (FNA) biopsies in the diagnosis of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. For this article, the author took a practical approach to grading follicular lymphoma by FNA and overcoming obstacles, such as the relative lack of architecture in aspiration biopsies.

      The feasibility of gene expression profiling generated in fine-needle aspiration specimens from patients with follicular lymphoma and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (pages 10–20)

      Andre Goy, John Stewart, Bedia A. Barkoh, Yvonne K. Remache, Ruth Katz, Nour Sneige and Frederic Gilles

      Article first published online: 2 DEC 2005 | DOI: 10.1002/cncr.21500

      The authors demonstrated the feasibility of using fine-needle aspiration (FNA) to generate gene transcription profiles in samples of follicular lymphoma and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, which, together, represent > 50% of non-Hodgkin lymphomas. The findings indicated that, in addition to the currently used ancillary studies, FNA-based transcription profiles may help in the subtyping of these entities.

      Rapid prescreening of papanicolaou smears : A practical and efficient quality control strategy (pages 21–26)

      Amina Djemli, Karim Khetani and Manon Auger

      Article first published online: 21 NOV 2005 | DOI: 10.1002/cncr.21424

      Rapid prescreening is an efficient and practical quality control tool for cytopathology laboratories. It is a reliable method to monitor sensitivity and reduce the false-negative rate in gynecologic cytology.

      Comparison of the effectiveness of two liquid-based Papanicolaou systems in the handling of adverse limiting factors, such as excessive blood (pages 27–31)

      Brenda J. Sweeney, Zafarul Haq, James F. Happel, Barbara Weinstein and Douglas Schneider

      Article first published online: 21 NOV 2005 | DOI: 10.1002/cncr.21425

      The SurePath™ liquid-based cytology system had a significantly greater capacity to render satisfactory gynecologic Papanicolaou-stained slides in the presence of excessive blood compared with the ThinPrep® system.

      Atypical squamous cells, cannot exclude high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion : Diagnostic performance, human papillomavirus testing, and follow-up results (pages 32–38)

      Monica Srodon, H. Parry Dilworth and Brigitte M. Ronnett

      Article first published online: 31 AUG 2005 | DOI: 10.1002/cncr.21388

      In this study, the category “atypical squamous cells, cannot exclude high-grade intraepithelial lesion” (ASC-H) has been associated with a greater frequency of human papillomavirus (HPV) positivity and significantly increased risk of underlying high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion compared with the category “atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance.” The lower frequency of HPV positivity for ASC-H compared with data from the Atypical Squamous Cells of Undetermined Significance/Low-Grade Squamous Intraepithelial Lesion Triage Study indicated that HPV testing for triage of ASC-H in routine practice has the potential to reduce the number of women who are referred for colposcopy.

      Incidence and clinical significance of morphologically benign-appearing endometrial cells in patients age 40 years or older : The impact of the 2001 Bethesda System (pages 39–44)

      Sarah M. Bean, Kathy Connolly, Janie Roberson, Isam Eltoum and David C. Chhieng

      Article first published online: 2 DEC 2005 | DOI: 10.1002/cncr.21458

      The authors observed a significant increase in reporting of the presence of benign endometrial cells in patients age 40 years or older after implementation of The 2001 Bethesda System. However, the incidence of clinically significant endometrial lesions associated with such diagnosis was very low.

      Comparison of ureteral washing and biopsy specimens in the community setting (pages 45–48)

      Andrew A. Renshaw

      Article first published online: 21 NOV 2005 | DOI: 10.1002/cncr.21456

      Ureteral washing and biopsy specimens in clinical practice have similar sensitivities (79% and 71%) and appear to be complementary.

      The utility of fine-needle aspiration in the diagnosis of gastrointestinal stromal tumors : A cytomorphologic and immunohistochemical analysis with emphasis on malignant tumors (pages 49–55)

      Danielle D. Elliott, Christina V. Fanning and Nancy P. Caraway

      Article first published online: 29 AUG 2005 | DOI: 10.1002/cncr.21376

      The preoperative diagnosis of gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) using fine-needle aspiration has proven to be a successful diagnostic modality. The authors report the clinical, cytomorphologic, and immunohistochemical findings from a large series of patients with malignant and benign GISTs.

      Monoclonal antibody MOC-31 reactivity as a marker for adenocarcinoma in cytologic preparations (pages 56–59)

      Jonathan L. Hecht, Jack L. Pinkus and Geraldine S. Pinkus

      Article first published online: 2 DEC 2005 | DOI: 10.1002/cncr.21426

      Epithelial membrane antigen, as detected by monoclonal antibody MOC-31, was highly sensitive as a marker for adenocarcinoma in cell block preparations from body fluids and was effective in its ability to distinguish between neoplastic and nonneoplastic mesothelial cells.

      uCyt+/ImmunoCyt™ in the detection of recurrent urothelial carcinoma : An update on 1991 analyses (pages 60–65)

      Christine Mian, Klaus Maier, Evi Comploj, Michele Lodde, Lucas Berner, Lukas Lusuardi, Salvatore Palermo, Fabio Vittadello and Armin Pycha

      Article first published online: 12 JAN 2006 | DOI: 10.1002/cncr.21712

      The clinical value of the uCyt+/ImmunoCyt™ test was evaluated as a noninvasive tool for the detection of recurrent urothelial carcinoma (UC). Used as a noninvasive tool, cytology combined with the uCyt+/ImmunoCyt test may reduce the morbidity and cost of follow-up in patients who have a low risk of recurrent UC, although additional studies will be necessary to establish and compare the morbidity and cost of each method.

      Immunoreactivity of p16 in anal cytology specimens : Histologic correlation (pages 66–71)

      Farbod Darvishian, Elizabeth A. Stier, Robert A. Soslow and Oscar Lin

      Article first published online: 10 JAN 2006 | DOI: 10.1002/cncr.21711

      The use of p16 immunocytochemical study in anal cytology specimens was analyzed and correlated with histologic findings. The presence of p16 immunoreactivity was a good predictor of dysplasia in anal specimens. However, the sensitivity and specificity of this marker were not high.
