PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is the expression of FHIT in non small cell lung carcinomas and its relationship with clinicopathologic parameters.
METHODS: We studied tissue sections of 84 patients, 48 - 81 years old (mean age 62.3 years) from the file of Surgical Pathology Department of Athens Naval Hospital with primary non small cell lung carcinoma (44 squamous cell carcinomas, 40 adenocarcinomas, 50 smokers, 34 non smokers). We used the immunohistochemical method avidin-biotin-peroxidase after the pretreatement of the slides in microwave with citrate buffer 10mmol / L, ph:6.0. The polyclonal antibody anti-FHIT 1: 50 dilution was used (incubation time 1 hour in room temperature)
