Sažetak
Gliomas are tumors originating from astrocytes, oligodendrocytes or ependimal cells. Those of astrocytic origin are the most widespread of primary brain tumors and account for more then 60% of all CNS neoplasms. The current state of knowledge on the associations between tumor etiology and oxidative stress suggests that environmental factors that cause oxidative stress could also induce and promote cancer, especially in case of hereditary predisposition. Among mediators of oxidative stress, lipid peroxidation product 4-hydroxynonenal (HNE) is of particular relevance in oncology, as it is known to act as a growth-regulating factor and a signaling molecule. The aim of present study was to investigate by immunohistochemistry the presence of HNE-modified proteins in different types of astrocytoma. Our study comprised 45 astrocytic tumors. These tumors were graded in accordance with the WHO classification as diffuse astrocytomas (DA), anaplastic astrocytomas (AA) and glioblastomas (GB), while each group comprised 15 tumors. Slides of paraffin-embedded tumor tissue were stained with hematoxylin-eosin or were prepared for immunohistochemistry with monoclonal antibodies to HNE-histidine conjugate. Positive immunohistochemical reaction to HNE was analyzed semi-quantitatively. HNE positivity was proportional with malignancy of astrocytomas. The weakest presence of HNE-histidine adducts was found in DA, followed by AA and GB. Lowest intensity of HNE immunopositivity was present in tumor cells of almost all DA, predominantly around blood vessels. In malignant variants of astrocytoma, AA and GB, HNE positivity was moderate to strong, and diffusely distributed in all tumors. © ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; 2005 - IOS Press and the authors.
