Abstract

A novel in situ histochemical method of screening genetic alterations of human malignant cells was reported. The method is based on subtraction in situ hybridization of whole genomic DNA from a healthy volunteer or DNA extracted from non-neoplastic tissues. The method can widely examine the possible DNA defects in situ without employing specific probes employing colorimetric reaction in routinely processed surgical pathology materials, i.e. 10% formalin-fixed and paraffin embedded tissue sections. Results can be correlated with histopathological findings. In this report, we also describe the results on genetic alterations of human esophageal squamous cell carcinoma, using this DNA subtraction in situ hybridization.
